One of the best games for smartphones and tablets is back, Angry Birds by Rovio, this time in space. The idea for Angry Birds Space actually originated in a challenge NASA made to Rovio nearly a year ago on Twitter:

but except the excellent new game, have a look at their marketing campaign. This time Rovio attached a giant Angry Birds slingshot to the Seattle Space Needle!

Angry Birds Space Seattle tower

After a giant claw kidnaps their eggs, the Angry Birds chase it into a wormhole and find themselves floating in a strange new galaxy – surrounded by space pigs! Luckily the Angry Birds have super powers of their own…

You can try new game, now with "space" physics, that even involved NASA consultants. Angry Birds Space is available for Android devices at Google Play

On this one we stumbled on a QR code blog, and at first it was hard to understand how stupid it was… Now we must categorise it as Fun ;) RedBull QR Code fail

We have tried to google for it and it looks like that this smart QR code campaign is Europe or world wide? Let's hope that more people will start scanning what they are printing.

See it and scan it for youself!

If you want to get your child an unique costume for this year's Halloween, consider this: 5 1/4 feet tall, iron exoskeleton, controlled by two joysticks. We guess that your child can haul around a year's worth of candies with this thing. And, yeah, school bullies should be worried, too (unless their parrents don't buy them similar suits ;-) ).

In any case, be prepared to cough up cool $21,000 for this thing. Registration for road use and batteries not included.

The radio itself is placed into a wooden box with an attached anntena.

The reason ai.rs blog does not do classic unboxing videos lies in the fact that the phones we get are in the test/sample phases, and we get them for couple of hours. Nexus One unboxing you're about to see will knock you out :)

Really funny video, shows Rfiddler devices in action, destroying RFID.

Codeninja developed this gadget that emmits a strong electromagnetic field which destroys sensitive electronics in RFID chips and some electronic devices (like usb-sticks).

All you need is to buy a plastic gun, some leds, an old mp3 player, microcontroller and "optional" LED display. Important notice, there is no touch screen (capacitive nor resistive) :)
