Gizmodo Gallery '09 started off with a bang yesterday, as it was packed full of people despite a minor problem with the air conditioning. But we're back today with the exclusive new Draganflyer X8 UAV and the Mud Tub computer.


The X8 is the latest and greatest to come from DraganFlyer, who improved upon the X6 by giving the UAV 8 rotors and a lightweight, carbon fiber design. Plus, this is the first time the actual device has ever been seen.


The Mud Tub computer is also at the gallery, and in a nutshell, you can push a pile of mud around, and a projected ball of light will react according to what direction and how hard you push the mud. Trust me, it's much cooler and less gross than it seems.

And let's not forget that ArcAttack will be performing with their singing Tesla coils at 1p, 4p and 7p today (and everyday), with a couple of impromptu performances scattered here and there. You really can't miss that (literally).
