  • FABtotum 3D prints and scans, mills, takes one step closer to self-replication

    FABtotum 3D prints, 3D scans, mills, takes one step closer to selfreplication

    Granted, the name’s a bit of a groaner (and we now have pictures of Bukowski sitting in front of a CAD program in our heads), but this box is capable of a pretty impressive array of maker activities. There’s a 3D Printer, 3D scanner and CNC router on board. You can capture objects and print them out on the same device and do some subtractive manufacturing by way of a dual-head engraving / milling tool that can cut into wood and do PCB milling for circuit boards. FABtotum is currently up on Indiegogo, if you want to get in early. A final consumer version will run you a $1,099 pledge. Those units are expected to be delivered in May of next year.

  • Mad Catz's Force Feedback Racing Wheel for Xbox One: only straight ridahs need apply
    Mad Catz's Force Feedback Racing Wheel for Xbox One only straight ridahs need apply

    With the next-generation Xbox and PlayStation nearing their release dates, third-party peripheral makers are now working full force to launch gaming products that can be used alongside the new consoles. Mad Catz, for one, has already shown us its Arcade Fightstick, and now we can add the Force Feedback Racing Wheel to the company’s lineup of Xbox One add-ons. The newly announced driving rig comes with twin Force Feedback motors, a replaceable wheel face and an adjustable pedal set, making it easy for gamers to fine-tune it to make it as comfortable as possible — because you need to feel extra cozy during Forza Motorsport 5 time. Pricing and availability for the Force Feedback Racing Wheel are still unknown, but surely we’ll find out those details as we get closer to the holiday season.%Gallery-slideshow73259%

  • Box gets more generous, gives users 10GB of personal cloud storage

    Box feels generous, gives users 10GB of personal cloud storage

    Box may not be the first company you think of when it comes to cloud storage, as it’s largely focused on serving business needs. Still, while Box’s bread and butter is the enterprise, the company does dabble in personal storage, and today Box users had their lockers double in size to 10GB. That’s twice the 5GB previously offered, which makes it a more spacious option than SkyDrive (7GB), Dropbox (2GB), Amazon Cloud Drive (5GB) and iCloud (5GB). The only big-name competitor with more free digital square footage, in fact, is Google Drive, which provides 15GB of space.

    There’s also some good news for small businesses and folks who like to share their space in the cloud. Box has rolled out a new starter tier that delivers 100GB of storage and allows up to ten users for $5 a month. 100GB of web workspace for the price of a large latte? Even the smallest startups can afford that.

  • NSA collected up to 56,000 emails not connected to terrorism a year, blames error

    We can’t say as though we’re particularly surprised to see such numbers, but, well, at least they’re finally coming to light. According to The Washington Post, newly declassified court documents highlight how the NSA collected up to 56,000 e-mails per year, over a three year period. The docs detail why the collection of such “wholly domestic” information was ruled unconstitutional by a judge in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, though the NSA stated that the surveillance was unintentional, adding that it reported said information to the court. As part of the ruling, the intelligence agency was required to investigate limits to its data collection — the NSA claims to have since addressed the problem. The newly available information was made public thanks to a recently field EFF lawsuit.

    Update: Want to crawl through some of that information? The White House has begun posting key docs to Tumblr, of all places.
