Robot Caddies, Winston Churchill and Taking 3D Pictures with Your Phone

A spoonful of the weekend helps the medicine go down.

BUDDY SYSTEM

A Tiny Caddie That Lives on Your Belt

There’s this thing called GolfBuddy. Been around for a while now. It’s a little computer/virtual caddie that tells you exactly how far you are from the green on 40,000 golf courses worldwide. Well, they just added more courses. And a voice. That sounds like a creepy version of Bagger Vance.

How to Become Winston Churchill
CHURCH SERVICE

How to Become Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill: prime minister. Nobel Prize winner. Maker of smoking cigars looking amazing. Great guy, that guy. And now you can be him. If you want to. Because someone just wrote a book solely dedicated to the man’s... not-so-public side. His cars. His cocktails. His hobbies. Bow-tie-tying: definitely one of them.

BILL OF SALE

Procuring Buffalo Bill’s Revolver

Here’s the thing about Buffalo Bill’s revolver: you don’t own it. No worries, though. Easy fix. Just hit the Heritage Auctions site this Sunday and bid on it. Then, before you know it, that bison-hunting, Wild West–pioneering cowboy’s six-shooter will be yours. Assuming you outbid everyone else. Then yes. Yours.

PICTURE SHOW

Taking 3D Pictures with Your Phone

Quick, take a picture of something. Now take a picture of something else. A dove or whatever. We couldn’t care less. Okay, good, now imagine those two pictures becoming one. And being 3D. And interactive. That’s what this thing does. By the way, this thing is a new iPhone app.
