i-Fly Vamp Peers in the Dark

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: CES, CES 2008, Misc. Tech, Toys,

Somehow we managed to overlook this rather unique ornithopter from our CES reports. Interactive Toy’s i-Fly Vamp is less than 10-inches, will soar both indoors and out, and is recommended for those over the chronological age of 8. It features a built-in lithium polymer battery that can last up to 30 minutes. The controller itself need 6 AA batteries. We have to admit the kewlest feature, however, is that glowing red eye. The Vamp is available at Radio Shack for $35.99, recently marked down $5.00. Here’s looking at you, kid.

Don’t Swat This Fly

Robotic Fly

Shades of Jeff Goldblum! Engineer Robert Wood has been working on a robotic fly since the late 90’s. After studying houseflies, bees, and fruit flies, he and his team created a layered composite that bends when electricity hits it, creating a micro-scale gearbox hooked to the wings. While the mass of a fly’s wings was figured to be 80 watts per kilo, this design produced more than 400W.

The Department of Defense liked his idea so much that they funded him, hoping the technology will be used for such applications as lost miners and military spying. Wood claims that he is only a third of the way there, as the next steps are to create an “on-board” power source and then teach the little buggers to fly en masse.

Steven Weber Returns to Television

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC,

Steven WeberWhat’s your TV screen been lacking these days? If you’re like me, you may have been thinking . Then again, he’s probably not the first name to come to mind, but he’s welcome on my TV any day. Weber, if you recall, last starred on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, which while overrated, was no fault of his. Think back a bit further and you may recall him from the series Wings, one of those classic little sitcoms with the great ensemble cast. Incidentally, how amazing does Weber’s Wings co-star look on ? Put him in the “never ages” hall of fame with ! Huh…? Oh, sorry, just daydreaming a bit there. Back to Weber, who will next be seen on NBC’s comedy Zip—this show has been bumping along without a green light since last spring, but once Weber was signed on as single dad/con man Trip Stringer, the show got the go-ahead. He’s replacing Rob Huebel, who starred in the original pilot. And speaking of Rob Lowe territory, Weber will make a guest appearance on this season.
