[Hands-On] Leapcast Can Turn A Windows, Mac, or Linux Computer Into A Chromecast With Limited Functionality, Here's How

I love the Chromecast. I'd easily call it the best $35 I ever spent, ranking just above those tanks of gas that got me to job interviews on time and that one Thai restaurant I really like. All I need is the addition of Hulu Plus support, and then I would have little need to turn to anything else for projecting content onto my TV.

Spiri Programmable Flying Robot Hovers Over $125,000 Kickstarter Funding Goal

Today we are looking at the successful funding of a programmable flying robot that is anything but a drone. Patrick Edwards-Daugherty's team wanted $125,000 on Kickstarter to fund the development of Spiri, a Linux-powered robot that is both obedient and autonomous, and they ultimately received just shy of $130,000 in pledges.
