Building a Star Wars Shadowtrooper Helmet Kit!

We’ve had the Shadowtrooper armor kit from Anovos completed since last year, but one addition kit that we wanted to build was the helmet. Over the course of a day, Frank and Norm tackle the helmet build, showing you how to clean up the vacuum-formed parts and put them together. With only four plastic pieces, this is a great place to start on your own Stormtrooper kit!

Flying FPV Drones with Avegant Glyph Headset

Avegant’s Glyph was conceived of as a way to watch movies and play games in a head-mounted display, but its more interesting use is as a FPV viewer for camera-equipped drones. We check out the final production version of the Glyph and test it with the DJI Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 with head-tracking.

Hands-On with Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core

Razer is known for unveiling far-out gaming hardware concepts at CES, but this year’s product reveal seems more practical. The Razer Blade Stealth is an Ultrabook, running an Intel Core i7 processor and integrated graphics. However, games can run on an external graphics card in the form of the Razer Core, which simply connects to the laptop over a Thunderbolt cable!

Hands-On with Sony Alpha A7 II Cameras

One of the reasons we like going to CES is that it gives us a chance to check out high-end camera gear in person. We stop by Sony’s booth to learn about the Alpha A7 Mark II line of full-frame mirrorless cameras, including the difference between the base model, the A7S, and A7R cameras.
