If you've been a gadget freak for years and just can't part with various memory cards that came with them, this may be just what you've been looking for. USB Fever has a reader that can handle 62 card formats, whether they come from media players, cameras, phones, or scads of other devices. (The last one we saw could handle only 55 cards.) The latest model can also work with SATA and eSATA drives for even more options, according to Gadget Venue. But seriously, if make use of all 62 formats, an intervention of some kind may be in order.

Is this a real RoboCop?
The K5 robot, developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Knightscope, is designed to be a surveillance robot for law enforcement, private security firms, schools and anything else looking for an extra set of eyes and ears on the ground. The 5-foot, 300-pound robot can roam autonomously, sending back real time data about an area with technology that does facial recognition, lidar mapping and 360-degree video. CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
