    Boeing Black: If You Were A Government Spy, This Will Be Your Next Phone

    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 [...]

    AeroBull: Is This The Most Adorable Speaker Ever?

    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? Made by Jarre, it’s an iPod/iPhone speaker clad in the impossibly cute form a bulldog wearing a pair of sunglasses, with a Lightning dock sitting right on its head.  That’s it.  While that description sounds lame, the execution definitely isn’t [...]

  • COI+ LEGO Power Brick 4200mAh Charger: Even External Batteries Can Be Fun

    COI+ LEGO Power Brick 4200mAh Charger: Even External Batteries Can Be Fun

    External batteries are utilitarian things, letting you grab a hit of juice for your phone even without an open outlet for miles.  But who says they can’t be fun, too?  Certainly not odd-gadget purveyor Brando (yes, those guys that sell everything from Creepy Spy Cams to USB Itch-Removal Gadgets to Air Multiplier knockoffs), who just added this COI+ LEGO Power Brick to their inventory. An erstwhile regular power bank (or external battery), it comes housed in a case that can [...]

    Socam Ultimate Action Cam Features 330-Degree Rotating Lens

    If you’re a new action cam trying to bite a piece of GoPro’s lunch, you better bring something new to the table.  And for the most part, that’s what we’ve seen with many new entrants to the category, who attempt to make their respective marks by showing up with a fresh feature, such as side by side videos, interchangeable lenses, or highly affordable pricing.  The Socam Ultimate’s special feature of choice: a 330-degree lens that can be rotated for quickly [...]

    Filip Is A Wearable Phone Watch Designed With Child Safety In Mind

    Giving your young children a phone can be helpful in many ways.  Not only will it allow you to communicate via calls and SMS, you can also turn on the GPS to track their location in real time.  Provided they don’t drop their phones while climbing a Pirate Ship Playhouse or destroy them from doing any of the raucous things little children do, that is.  The Filip offers a less troublesome alternative. Made by Filip Technologies, it looks like a [...]

    Just like everyone reaches a certain age where they think about settling down and having kids, everyone reaches a certain age where they feel like walking around with music blaring on their headphones is just all sorts of unnecessary. If you haven’t reached that age yet, you might want to trade in your Fitbit Force for the Dash, the “world’s first wireless smart in-ear headphones.” You can use them much like regular headphones, streaming music from a smartphone over Bluetooth.

    You Can Soon 3D-Print An Entire Table In One Go With The BigRep One

    Will the day ever come that we can 3D print an entire house in our backyard?  Between advancement in materials (3D printing in carbon fiber and fiberglass) and larger build sizes while retaining reasonable prices, we have a feeling it may come sooner than later.  Here’s another product pushing the boundaries in that space: the BigRep ONE. Billed as the “biggest FDM 3D printer in the market,” it boasts a ridiculous 1.3 cubic meter build size.  For the metric-impaired (and [...]

  • FishHunter Is A Compact FishFinder That Pairs With Smartphones

    FishHunter Is A Compact FishFinder That Pairs With Smartphones

    Everybody uses smartphones nowadays. Even fishermen. So why not turn the smartphone into a functional display for a sonar fishfinder? That’s exactly what they did with the FishHunter. Similar to a traditional fishfinder, it uses an underwater transducer to send sound waves into the water, which will be reflected back once it strikes objects in the water. Instead of sending the readings to an accompanying console panel, however, it funnels data straight to your phone over Bluetooth, so you can [...]

    Fuel Is An External Power Bank That Fits In Super Tiny Pockets

    We don’t know if Fuel really is the world’s smallest phone charger, but it’s definitely the most minuscule we’ve seen so far. Measuring just 1.3 x 0.9 x 0.5 inches, you can literally carry a bunch of these on a shirt pocket without any problem. And, heck, even one on that little coin pocket in your jeans. Because of the size, it won’t be able to give your phone a full charge the same way the Exovolt or the iGeek [...]

    Survival Slingshot Archer Can Hurl Stones And Shoot Arrows

    I think I’ve found my zombie apocalypse weapon of choice. While I’ve always been partial to axes and swords, I have a feeling this Survival Slingshot Archer will prove more efficient for thriving in a post-apocalypse landscape. Like regular slingshots, it can hurl balls at high speeds, allowing you to hunt birds and other small game for food. Unlike them, it has been modified to also shoot arrows, allowing you to Katniss your way out of any predicament without an [...]

    Sonic Foamer Promises To Bring Out The Aroma In Your Beer

    From a tender drinking age, we’ve been trained to minimize the foam on our beer by carefully pouring down the side of the glass. And things work well enough that way. Which is why some folks may find the Sonic Foamer a tad confusing, being a gadget whose main purpose is to put a big head of foam to bubble at the top of your Warhammer Stein. Sporting a form factor similar to USB cup warmers and coolers, there’s a [...]

    This Bottle Cutter Makes Slicing Off Glass Containers A Safer, Faster Affair

    Slicing off empty glass bottles to turn them into drinking glasses, vases, and hanging lamps can be a fun hobby. At least, until you cut your hand working with sharp glass edges. If you’d rather not risk seeing blood gush out of your limbs, though, the C&C Bottle Cutter might prove plenty helpful. Designed for home use, the device lets you cut bottles of different sizes quickly, precisely, and safely. Granted, it won’t help you sand the sharp edges after [...]

    TouchBase Creates A Business Card That Phones Can Read By Simply Touching It

    With everyone and his grandma owning a smartphone, you’d think we’d have done away with business cards by now. But, alas, it ain’t so. It doesn’t look like that will change soon, either. And while some outfits have tried to smarten up business cards by adding RFID or NFC (so people can automatically add them to their smartphone contacts), these TouchBase Business Cards just might prove a tad friendlier to the market at large. Rather than snap a picture of [...]

    The Tor Browser is about as solid an option there is for anonymously surfing the web. If you’d rather that all internet access around the house be cloaked in the same anonymous stealth mode, however, you’ll need something like the Safeplug. Made by Pogoplug, it’s a box that connects to your router and automatically uses the Tor network for all internet requests that happen in your home network.
