Weird News: 3DS Porn and Angry Birds Championship

A look at the more eccentric side of tech world's last seven days

3DS Porn
The smutty, depraved minds of the internet have already tainted the cherished 3DS. Julie Watai, a self-confessed gadget nerd and Japanese pin-up posted a gallery of provocative 3D images for the 3DS so that the world could enjoy them for free. Is nothing sacred?

Angry Birds Championship
The game responsible for millions of half finished sentences and glazed over eyes was celebrated in Finland with a national competition to find the one gamer that would rule them all. 2600 people took part, with the top prize going to 19 year old Jonas Koivula who won a... uh... sorry I've just got to... uhh... these pigs...

MPs Tweet
The equivalent of texting under the table at school, MPs tweeting whilst in the House of Commons was frowned upon until recently. But in a move that screams "hey we can B down wid da kids 2" MPs are now allowed to bring their iGadgets into the chambers and tweet their way right through the debate. Why not? Its not like they're supposed to be busy running the country or anything...

Quadrocopters perform circus acts
In a bizarre demonstration of robotic skill, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich released a video of its scarily able Quadrocopters juggling ping pong balls. These autonomous drones have already demonstrated their physical agility but now they're actually learning to work as a team! We at T3 have already ordered a batch of bumperstickers just in case: "I, For One, Welcome Our New Quadrocopter Overlords".

$18,000 iPod Nano Watch
The time-honoured tradition of taking Apple products and smothering them in valuable materials is kept up by the Zshock Lunatik. Taking an iPod Nano and practically dipping it in diamonds, Zshock have made it gaudy enough to cause more damage to a child's eyes than a Nintendo 3DS. Suited to the 21st Century Rolex owner, the Lunatik should go great alongside your Gold History Edition iPad 2.

Surgical robot builds tiny paper plane
Building paper planes is a staple part of any childhood and of course arguments always follow about which design would be most successful. There were a bevy of possible modifications: wing-span and tail design, snub-nose or pointy, some even cut flaps into the wings, but never did we consider making one the size of a penny. Dr. Porter, on the other hand, decided to show off what the da Vinci surgical robot could do, and made a pointlessly small plane. Bet ours can go further than yours Dr. Porter.


Virtual Reality Fruit Ninja
We've always felt that Fruit Ninja was a great app, but if we had one complaint, it would be that we never feel like we're truly a ninja. Some German students obviously felt our pain and created a 3D immersive environment to really get into the game. With watermelons flying directly at your head and a virtual katana in hand, you get a taste of real Fruit Ninja life.
