- New Lego Mindstorm sets come with iOS and Android support right out of the box.
Its updated Mindstorms EV3 runs on new Linux firmware that's ready for Android and iOS control out of the box, creates an overall more hackable platform and allows further programming on the core Intelligent Brick itself; accordingly, there's an SD card slot for local storage. A built-in infrared sensor expands the possibilities for a more autonomous design, as well -- Lego suggests that EV3 constructs can follow other moving gadgets, or even their creators, around the room.

- Barack Obama is TIME's 2012 Person of the Year.
Since the moment Obama arrived on the national scene in 2004, the very idea of leadership has been under assault. Many of the old institutions that once anchored the American Dream have been bled of public confidence. Banks, Big Business, the news media and Congress all polled at or near record lows during his first term. Obama himself was the target of uncommon vitriol, but he has somehow managed to keep the public’s faith.

- Ten neat Star Wars shirts for your viewing pleasure, go forth and wear The Force proudly.
Be the envy of all of your friends as you wear your Wookie of the Year t-shirt with pride and honor knowing that you've served The Republic and rid the galaxy of evil forces who came at you with robotic droids. They may have overrun your planet and caused a Jedi Master to flee into exile but in the end you can always crash with your Ewok friends on Endor and call it a day. Too much?

- Twenty-six cool And unusual bed designs for your sleepy viewing pleasure.
My pillow-top bed is looking pretty boring compared to this list of non-boring beds by the folks over at coincidentally named BoringPanda.com. Sidenote: that may be one of the coolest domain names I've come across this year which is neither coincidental or boring. Mind blown.

- Full-scale replica of Carl's floating house from Pixar's UP for sale over in Utah.
This is a clever marketing tactic by some savvy real estate developers (with Pixar's blessing). Had this been in New York I would've headed over to it in a heartbeat to tour it with the kids. On a sadder note, the balloons do not come with the house. Although you could get yourself a Golden Retriever, name it Dug, and call it day.

'James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior,' said Paul Lieberstein, one of the series executive producers and a series regular.

- A handy tutorial on how to make your very own vinyl record bookends.
Another awesome quick four-step tutorial from the fine folks over at Instructables. Simply boil up some of your old vinyl records and bend them, mold them, shape them into retro bookends. Really, when you were going to listen to those old polka albums anyway?

Go on in and have a gander at some photography of the event courtesy of Popular Science. You'll see some interesting things such as the world's largest IMAX screen followed by the world's largest baby (relax, it's only a model).

- Cablevision, Time Warner and Comcast open up wi-fi to each other's customers.
This is very good news (and quite unexpected also) for customers of any of the aformentioned companies in the above headline. You can now take advantage of any of their wifi whilst traveling just so long as you are paying customer. Not too shabby, guys - not too shabby at all.
