The Newest LEGO Ideas Kit Will Take You to the International Space Station

LEGO occasionally crowdsources its ideas through the appropriately named LEGO Ideas platform. There, Adult Fans of Lego (AFOL) can submit proposals for future sets, and the program has led to gems like the Doctor Who set, the Flintstones kit, and even a ship in a bottle. Now the latest $80 LEGO Ideas inspired set is ready to take us to space—specifically to the International Space Station (ISS).

8 of Our Favorite Products From CES That You Can Buy Right Now

January is an exciting month for tech, largely due to the annual Consumer Electronics Show that’s held in the dangerous desert of Las Vegas. While this is a good time to get a glimpse into the upcoming year (and beyond!), it’s rare that a manufacturer announces and releases a product during the CES timeframe.

A company named Mojo Vision is showing smart contacts that fit right on your eye to provide AR, and they sound great. But they look terrible.

I know I can get around that by installing the Linux version of the popular PC gaming client, but let’s just say performance wasn’t the best in my experience. It looks like Google read my mind, because the company is working to bring official Steam support to Chrome OS.

Twitter Isn’t Getting an Edit Button, And That’s Fine
