Propel's Star Wars drones are flippin' awesome. I own one, and I've had the chance to dogfight with a friend who owns one. Pure geeky fun, let me tell you.They started out at $180 and have seen some pretty good sales in past months -- but rarely this good: For a limited time, Amazon has the Propel Star Wars T-65 X-Wing Quadcopter for $40.See it at AmazonThe X-Wing auto-hovers, so it's much easier to master than drones of old. It comes with two batteries, so you can get 12-16 minutes of flight time instead of just 6-8. The controller is large and easy to hold, and it plays Star Wars music and sound effects. I don't know how long these will last at this price, so if you're even slightly interested, I'd jump at this. Then sit tight and wait for a TIE Fighter and/or Speeder-Bike deal so you can stage proper dogfights. Pew-pew!CNET's Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

Kalashnikov Concern, a Russian manufacturer known for the AK-47 assault rifle, is thinking pretty big these days when it comes to new defense machines. The company unveiled a concept for a bipedal battle robot this week and all I can think about are the two-legged AT-STs from Star Wars.The Kalashnikov creation seems to be solidly in the concept realm right now. It looks like its main job is to just stand there and look cool. It has a couple of grabby arms and hands reminiscent of the Power Loader suit from Aliens and a large cabin at the top where presumably a human driver would sit to control the machine. It looks a bit top-heavy and not quite as lithe as an AT-ST. Kalashnikov shared the walker during the Army-2018 international military forum and expo going on this week near Moscow. The weapons company says the goal would be to use the walker to solve engineering and combat tasks and promises to unveil more about its capabilities sometime in the future.This isn't … [Read more...] about Kalashnikov battle robot concept looks like a Star Wars AT-ST

It’s priced at just $28 today, and while it is a very small drone, it is definitely capable.
