Cozmo hits stores in October for $179, but Anki (robotics company responsible for creating this beaut) is taking pre-orders now on its website. Anki is also planning to release the SDK, which will allow owners to tinker with Cozmo’s A.I., if they'd like to. Check Cozmo out in action below:

A 3D printer that uses processed cheese may sound like a good idea, but the technology just isn’t quite there yet.

Andrew Maxwell-Parish, who manages a creative technology and interactive electronics lab at California College of the Arts, has been experimenting with Easy Cheese to create some delicious new art.

The device can easily cover your cracker, but anything else is a bit more complicated and just turns into a complete mess.

He does note that this is just the “initial testing” phase, so some smearing was expected.

Maybe one day you will be able to 3D print a home for yourself out of cheese, but until that time, it’s probably best to just squirt it in your mouth as God intended.

Sorry bro, your days of dominating everyone at beer pong are numbered.

Empire Robotics has created a robotic arm with a specialized ball on the end of it that hardens and softens to pick up objects.

So, for example, it can pick up ping pong balls and toss them into Solo cups.

Watch it flawlessly make 6 cups in a row in the video above, and – if you dare – challenge it in person at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

"The robot is not perfect, so it's possible for a human to win, but it's pretty good, so you'd have to be pretty good at beer pong," said the company's project manager John Dean.
