    Soundhawk Smart Listening System Adds Superhearing Tech to Bluetooth Headphones

    At first glance, the Soundhawk looks nothing more than a regular Bluetooth earpiece for conducting hands-free calls.  And while it does that, it brings something else to the table, having been designed to give its wearer superhuman hearing abilities.   Well, sort of. While it can’t exactly bestow you with Kryptonian levels of superhearing powers, it will amplify the things you want to hear and quiet down those you don’t, allowing you to better sort out what the girl you just [...]

    This Is The LG G Watch And It Looks Absolutely Geeky

    That Moto 360 is beautiful and all, but you’re having doubts whether a watch that classy is going to go well with your everyday wardrobe of band tees, cargo shorts, and beat-up Jordans.  You need something a little less chic and a little more geek.  That’s exactly what you’re going to get with the LG G Watch. Yeah, it’s geeky.  With its boxy case (37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95mm), silicone strap, and dead simple design, it’s what the guys who [...]

    Android Auto Brings Google’s Mobile Platform To Your Dashboard

    With Apple having previously announced its intentions of being in everyone’s vehicles with Carplay, we all had a feeling Google will be announcing their own take on in-car infotainment sooner than later.  And that’s exactly what they did with the official unveiling of Android Auto, which brings the company’s mobile OS into automobile dashboards. Similar to Carplay, the system will hook up your Android phone via cable, essentially using the vehicle’s display as a screen casting accessory.  Rather than put [...]

    Creopop: This 3D Pen Ditches Hot Plastic In Favor Of Light-Sensitive Gels For Kid-Safe Use

    3D printing pens will make great toys for kids, literally giving them the power to sketch real-world objects into life.  Except they extrude piping hot plastic, which makes it a bad idea to give to children without parental supervision.  The Creopop changes this, ditching the plastic spools in favor of light-sensitive photopolymer gels. With the elimination of heated plastic, the pen becomes completely safe for children to use on their own.  Plus, there are no vapors of burning plastic to [...]

    Add Multiple Physical Buttons To Your Android Phone With Dimple

An NFC sticker with multiple buttons, you simply stick it on the back of your phone (so it gets in close proximity to the NFC antenna), then use the accompanying app to assign functions to each one.  [...]

    Amazon Fire Phone: Everything You Need To Know

    Amazon just announced their highly-anticipated smartphone.  Called the Fire Phone, it brings the same high-end hardware you will see under the hood of many premium phones on the market, but adds some innovative features you aren’t likely to find anywhere else. On specs alone, it is comparable to the manufacturer flagships it will try to compete with: 4.7-inch 720p display, 13.0 megapixel rear  camera with f/2.0 lens, 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor, Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM, stereo speakers, the [...]

    Vessyl Smart Cup Knows Exactly What You’re Drinking

    Vessyl is a smart cup that can detect the kind of drink that’s poured into it. Whether it’s coffee, vodka, or Gatorade (yes, it can recognize brands and even flavors), this device can tell you before you even take a sip. More than identifying the beverage in the cup, the device can also determine its nutritional information on the fly. All that data will then be sent into a smartphone app where you can check just how much watered down [...]

    Mario Maker Will Let You Play A New Level Of Mario Bros. Everyday For Infinity

    Can’t get enough of the Mario Bros? Not a problem when Mario Maker, an upcoming game that lets you design new levels of the game, comes out next year. Created by Nintendo for its current-gen Wii U console, the game lets you create infinite levels for the classic Mario Bros platformer, placing obstacles, enemies, and power-ups, among other in-game elements, at will. You only get to make 2D levels, though, so it’s not quite the sophisticated game builder that we’ve started seeing [...]

  • Honeywell Lyric Smart Thermostat Uses Geofencing To Optimize Temperature Regulation

    Honeywell Lyric Smart Thermostat Uses Geofencing To Optimize Temperature Regulation

    Honeywell created the round thermostat way back in 1945. And while they missed out on pioneering the new wave of smart thermostats, their newly-announced Lyric definitely makes an effort to innovate. Rather than mimic Nest’s use of motion tracking to figure out when the home is unoccupied, the Honeywell Lyric uses variable-range geofencing, tracking your phone’s location to determine whether to set the thermostat high or low. This removes the learning curve and more rigid scheduling that comes with a solution like [...]

    Use The CLM 2 Floating Shelf To Make 20-Pound Objects Fly

    The CLM 2 is a levitating display shelf that lets you make objects of all sorts look like they’re floating a few inches up in the air. It’s awesome. Simply set an item down on top of the floating disc and, boom, it’s immediately got that David Blaine magic going on. Made by Crealev, this is, basically, the exact same tech that the company employs to make objects levitate in museums and product booths (and, we’re guessing, the same tech [...]

  • Automate Your Backyard Farm With Edyn Smart Garden

    Automate Your Backyard Farm With Edyn Smart Garden

    We’ve seen plant sensors that can stick into a pot and tell you exactly when it’s time to water and fertilize. The Edyn Smart Garden works in a similar way, except it performs that duty for an entire garden rather than an isolated potted plant. Designed to monitor up to 250 square feet of land, a single sensor should be good enough to handle monitoring for most backyard gardens. It can work on any type of soil (except frozen soils) growing any [...]

    Razer Junglecat Gives Your iPhone A Compact, Slide-Out Gamepad

    While there are a lot of physical controllers now available for iPhone, many of them tend to fall into the same problem category: they just aren’t portable enough to slip comfortably in your pants pocket. And what’s the point of a controller for mobile games when it can’t be mobile? The Razer Junglecat tries to make its case by avoiding this same pitfall. Adopting a design similar to the premium feature phones of old (think Sidekick), the controller is designed [...]
