    PAL-V ONE, A Hybrid Road Car And Gyrocopter

    Flying cars are like jetpacks.  We’ve been seeing them for years but no one ever seems to come close to real commercial availability.  That doesn’t mean we can’t gush after every new model that shows up to tease us with their super transporting powers.  And that’s exactly what we’re gonna do with the PAL-V ONE, a combo gyrocopter and three-wheeled land vehicle. A personal-sized flying car, the vehicle can sit two folks, so you can bring a friend along   while [...]

    Seabreacher Y Personal Submarine Looks Like A Killer Whale

    Remember the Seabreacher X, that personal submarine decked to look and run like a shark while on water?  Yeah, it’s pretty special.  Except you’re scared of sharks.  In fact, you intentionally stay away from the TV and the internet during Shark Week.  Maybe the Seabreacher Y, a personal sub that looks like a killer whale, will be more suited to your tastes. Made by Innespace, the watercraft doesn’t just have the external appearance of the Orcinus Orca, it breaches and [...]

    Breakfast Express Makes Omelet And Waffle At The Same Time

    A waffle iron is a wonderful thing.  While designed to make delicious breakfast waffles, it can do a decent job making omelets, grilling burgers and baking brownies, too.  The result is rarely pretty, but nothing stays pretty once it enters your mouth anyway.  The Waring Breakfast Express is like a standard waffle iron but twice the awesome, sporting two separate forms for cooking a waffle and an omelet simultaneously.  And, yes, we’re guessing you can make burgers and brownies on [...]

  • Kai Table Hides Multiple Storage Areas With Creative Openings

    Kai Table Hides Multiple Storage Areas With Creative Openings

    At first glance, the Kai Table looks just like a plain wooden coffee table for sitting in the center of your living room.   Except with a bunch of rectangular lines etched in irregular patterns all around its boxy dimensions.  Get busy on the edges, though, and out flip a bunch of doors, revealing a whole mass of storage spaces built into the deceptive furnishing. Designed by Naoki Hirakoso and Takamitsu Kitahara, it’s a low-standing coffee table and multi-panel storage box.  [...]

    Swimmer’s Treadmill Is Like Endless Pool For The Poor

    MakerBot Replicator Can 3D Print Two-Color, Loaf-Sized Objects

    MakerBot has been cranking out their impressive desktop 3D printers for a couple years now.  Their latest, called the MakerBot Replicator, steps up its game, producing larger 3D objects than previous releases and doing it in two colors. Since this is still a “desktop 3D printer,” it won’t let you automagically print a living pod for the backyard just yet.  Instead, the new model can produce items about as big as a loaf of bread (yes, before you eat a [...]

    5 Best Tablets Of 2011 Not Named iPad

    No matter how you dice it, the iPad 2 remained the dominant tablet of 2011.   That doesn’t mean it didn’t have some worthy competition to keep Apple honest.  These five represent what we feel to be the best iPad alternatives of the last 12 months.   ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime I am not a fan of really with long names for products.  Beyond that though, there’s little to dislike about the Transformer Prime whose big selling point is the [...]

    Bean Bag Sled Softens Hard Landings And Icy Bumps

    Use a bean bag for a sled?  We’re pretty sure someone, somewhere already did that.  We doubt they made it down the slope with a smile as big as that dude, though.  Man, that’s one big ass grin.  And all of it became possible because of the Bean Bag Sled. Why bean bags?  Because bean bags are soft and cushy, absorbing the brunt of hard landings and icy bumps to save your crotch and posterior regions from taking damage.  And, [...]

    When Siri first rolled out on the iPhone 4S, many sci-fi geeks were thinking one thing: it’s like the progenitor for our very own HAL 9000.  As it turns out, we don’t have to wait for Siri’s future incarnations to get that with the IRIS 9000, a voice control module that turns your iPhone into a clone of Arthur C. Clarke’s AI robot. A unique iPhone accessory, it consists of a cradle for docking your handset and a tower-style speaker [...]
