    Hinge N Hang Mounts A Towel Bar To Your Door Hinge

A multi-purpose towel bar, it installs conveniently right on the door hinge, so there’s no need to work with hammers, adhesives, and screwdrivers.  Once mounted, it gives users [...]

    Moto 360: Sorry Pebble, Someone Else Just Made The Hottest-Looking Smartwatch

    We love the Pebble Steel’s classier take on the smartwatch.  More than anything, it gave us hope that even prettier wrist computers will find their way into the market soon.  If the Moto 360 is any indication, that could be happening even sooner than we thought. Sporting a round face and a whole load of style, it’s the first smartwatch that genuinely looks like a fashion accessory rather than a utilitarian computer, making for a fashionable replacement to your wrist [...]

    Android Wear: Meet Google’s Smartwatch OS Platform

    Just like they did with smartphones, Google won’t be getting into the smartwatch market by building their own wrist-gadget.  Instead, they’re choosing to focus on the software the wearables will run on with the freshly-announced Android Wear. A modified version of Google’s mobile OS, it extends the power of Android into the growing world of smartwatches and wearables.  As with regular Android, it’s designed to run on hardware from different manufacturers, lowering the barrier to entry for any company looking [...]

    Moff Wearable Smart Toy Adds Sound Effects To A Child’s Movements

    From futuristic blasters that make laser shooting sounds to robots that make beeping noises to police cars with blaring sirens, it’s fair to conclude that a whole lot of children’s toys serve to function as nothing more than elaborate noisemakers.  So why not just make a toy that creates different kinds of noises depending on whatever you’re playing with?  That’s exactly what they did with Moff. A motion-tracking silicone wristband, it detects a wearer’s specific movements, then produces corresponding sounds [...]

    Analogue NT Is A NES Clone In A Sleek And Modern Enclosure

    Why would anyone want to buld a NES clone in 2014?  We have no idea or more like Why the heck not!.  But, hey, if there is a market for game consoles borne out of manchild nostalgia, so be it.  And while there have been many that came before it, the Analogue NT is inarguably the most beautiful we’ve seen, so you can reclaim some semblance of adult taste while partaking in the ancient joys of Bomberman and Donkey Kong [...]

      There’s no shortage of premium gear for audiophiles, from music servers to DIY headphone kits to USB amplifiers.  And while the unwashed masses have already traded in their iPods for the convenience of playing music on their smartphones, we bet there’s more than a handful of folks on the lookout for a hi-fi portable player to get their snobby-quality music on the go.  Their wait should be over with the launch of PonoPlayer.

    New-Gen 14-Inch Razer Blade Could Be The Ultimate On-The-Go Gaming Computer

    While previous generations of the Razer Blade were solid gaming-specific machines and veritable showcases of clever design, each one always brought something that still left folks somewhat underwhelmed. The 2014 refresh of the 14-inch Razer Blade, however, appears to be ending that streak, bringing what looks, on paper, to be the, hands down, ultimate gaming machine you can take around without breaking your back. Unlike last generation’s disappointing display, the new 14-inch iteration boasts a 3200 x 1800 IPS screen. [...]

    Live Out Your Inception Fantasies With The Aurora Lucid Dreaming Headset

    Truth be told, lucid dreaming sounds fun.  Figuring out how to get into a state where you have clear awareness while you’re dreaming, however, is a whole other matter entirely.  Simply put, it’s far easier to dismiss it as one of those woo-woo things only weirdos take part in than put in immense effort to experience.  That may change soon if the Aurora Headset lives up to its promise of helping ease novices into finding lucid dreaming success. An EEG-based [...]

    Game Frame: Liven Up Your Desk With Pixel Art Decor

    A week ago, you had a framed picture of your girlfriend sitting on your workdesk.  Any time you felt bored at work, you would glance at it and be inspired.  Yeah, you were a smitten fool.  The same frame now sits wrecked in the trash after she dumped you last Wednesday night over SMS.  Ouch.  You need something new to sit on your desk and make you smile when the turmoil of work just gets too much, preferably one that [...]

    Skirmos Is A Programmable Open Source Laser Tag System

    You were wise to give up laser tag a few years back.  Playing it well into your adult age is far from the coolest thing you can get into, especially as you’re trying to fit into your newfound role of being  a responsible, well-adjusted grownup.  But even the best laid plans get screwed up somewhere along the way and we have a feeling the Skirmos is just the toy to draw you back into the laser tag fold. Billed as [...]

    You come home from work.  It’s a lazy Tuesday night.  You open the fridge, bring out the frozen pork belly, turn on the Aroma Grill, and start making dinner.  As you’re slicing the meat, that Chumbawamba song from your childhood starts playing.  You crack a smile, shake your hips, and continue what you’re doing — it’s the perfect song to start the evening.  And you have the Cone Speaker to thank for it.

    Roku Streaming Stick Brings 1,200 Channels in Chromecast-Sized Form Factor

    Chromecast’s small size and low price are just two of the things that have allowed it to eat a slice out of Roku’s set-top box business.  And while the company has had a thumb-sized version of their set-top box for a while now (which they now call Roku Ready), requiring an MHL port just made it inaccessible to a whole lot of TV owners.   The new Roku Streaming Stick takes Google’s cue, plugging in to an HDMI and a powered [...]

    If you work within the national defense and security communities, there’s good reason to prioritize security features in the smartphone you use.  Chances are, you’ll be handling information that’s more sensitive than usual — the last thing you want is to get the location of the secret headquarters where the government is building their army of Gundam-style robot mechs stolen from your SMS inbox.  When you have nefarious characters constantly angling to take information off your phone, regular consumer handsets [...]

    Chances are, you really don’t need another iPod speaker dock.  At the same time, the AeroBull isn’t about something that you need. It’s about something that you’ll want.  And, darn it, how can you say no to this adorable thing?
