A project nine months in the making culminated with an exciting feat earlier this week, as the world’s first 3D-printed drone took to the skies and hit record speeds of up to 150 MPH. Virginia-based manufacturer Aurora Flight Sciences is the company behind the craft, which they say is the first Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in the world to be jet-powered and built using 80% 3D-printed parts.

Anyone who is old enough to remember BlackBerry in its heyday has probably owned at least one BlackBerry smartphone in his or her lifetime. There was plenty to love about BlackBerry phones back then, but there was one feature in particular that people hated to love: the flashing LED notification light that would start blinking every 20 seconds to let you know a new email had arrived and you had work to do.
The lead-up to Black Friday this year has been tremendous, with the nation’s largest retailers already having shown us that they’re going to do everything in their power to make this year’s Black Friday bigger than any other year.

Today has been a very, very busy day over in our Black Friday 2015 hub. We’ve seen new ads come in from several big-name stores that shoppers have been waiting for, and now we can add Sears to the list. Gone are the days when you could only find a good Black Friday deal at Sears if you were shopping for a ratchet set for your dad. Sears now sells a surprisingly wide range of products from big-screen TVs and accessories to clothing, home appliances and plenty more.
If you’re a brave soul who values style over sensibility, you probably don’t use a case on your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. After all, considering how sleek Apple’s iPhone design is, it stands to reason that not everyone wants to hide it under a protective case. At the same time, however, the aluminum Apple uses to build its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus housings is incredibly slippery, so going caseless will inevitably lead to a drop at some point. Sure, it’s easier than ever to fix a cracked iPhone screen — you don’t even have to leave your house — but avoiding breaks all together is obviously a better idea.
We’ve shown you a number of great case options for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but today we’re going to show something unique that is almost certainly unlike anything you’ve seen before. More →

Virtual reality has been a long time coming, but the most notable strides have come in the past few years. Oculus has led a revitalization in VR tech, the development of which had slowed significantly over the preceding decade. Now, a resurgence in consumer VR products has resulted in great strides, and affordable virtual reality kits like the Samsung Gear VR make virtual reality accessible to nearly anyone.
But there’s still one key piece missing from the virtual reality puzzle that prevents the user from being truly immersed in a VR experience. That may soon change, however, thanks to work being done by researchers in Germany. More →
We’ve read your emails, tweets and Facebook posts, and we got your message loud and clear: The BGR Show is back. After an brief hiatus followed by a much needed vacation, Jonathan and Zach have finally posted a brand new episode of the popular BGR Show podcast.

Yikes.
