Getting a lift in a circuit board truck and turning our car into a Tardis made us so happy this week we wagged our robot tail.

Feeling sad that you can't drive this life-size Lego big rig? At least you can turn your car into a Tardis or NCC-1701 for $15 or less. And more news to cheer you up:

- No bike lane? No problem. Make your own.

- Will we be seeing two new Nexus tablets before year's end?

- A 625-foot tall Ferris wheel? That's a whole lot of Ferris wheel.

- The Ostrich Pillow is your own personal public-nap tunnel.

- Ready for Facebook friend updates to invade your Caller ID?

- TSA officer takes traveler's iPad home for permanent screening.

- RoboCop in real life? Researchers are working on it.

- Smile! You're on Candid Camera Van Camera.
