This Pedal Powered Forklift($320) looks like a real woking and miniature Forklift! The chassis is made from durable ABS plastic, and the crank powered forks are capable of lifting up to 6 1/2 lbs. It’s limited to kids up to 55-inches. And a maximum riding weight of up to 110 lbs.
"This is the pedal-powered, ride-on version of a Linde 394 forklift that raises and lowers at its driver’s command. Made in Germany, its lifting fork is raised by turning a hand crank and held into place with a locking lever, tilting slightly backward to keep an included plastic 6 1/2 lb.-capacity pallet stable, just like a real forklift. Pedals power the forklift forward and backwards with a precisely engineered chain drive, its integrated eccentric keeps the chain taut for efficient power transfer to the rear axle."
This is an technical demo for real-time face swapping technique.
Using a code mashup of Jason Saragih's facetracker and Kevin Atkinson's image clone code Barcelona-based programmer Arturo Castro shows us the first steps toward easy video chat face masking that is far more convincing than you might think. In just one quick session Castro puts on the faces of Paris Hilton, Fidel Castro, Steve Jobs, Vladimir Lenin, Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Mao Tse-tung, Brad Pitt, Michael Jackson, Salvador Dali and of course President Barack Obama.

Crafted by Harrison Krix of Volpin Props, this Daft Punk helmet replica not only looks just like the real thing, but has a fully working, programmable LED faceplate (coded by James Moss who offers his Arduino code here).
"The piece has over 350 LEDs, can run over 4 hours on a single charge, and the matrix is capable of being updated on-the-fly with a custom programmed iOS app." Check out the a time lapse version of the process of video below.
