    Palate Smart Grill Promises To Make 100% Perfectly-Cooked Steaks Every Time

    Grilling is easy enough with a good indoor electric grill.  Cooking steaks so they taste as good as restaurant fare, however, is a whole other matter entirely.  The Palate Smart Grill claims it can help you do just that. Armed with a selection of sensors, the appliance can monitor whatever’s cooking every step of the way, performing precision adjustments on heat and other parameters in real-time.   They claim that the technology makes it impossible to overcook or undercook food on [...]

    Less Mess Placemat Sticks To Table So Children Can’t Knock Over Their Plates

    While the Less Mess Happy Mat won’t exactly eliminate the catastrophic mess that inevitably comes when you allow little children to handle their own utensils in the dining table, it can definitely prevent some of it from happening.  Emphasis on “some of it.”  And, yes, that’s good enough. Overturned trays?  Not happening.  Pancake plates dragged towards the floor?  Not with this thing.  Knocked down glass of juice?  Well, yes.  Hey, we said “some of it.” Designed by Lindsey Laurin, the [...]

    Nexstar Evolution Smart Telescope Can Self-Position Depending On Which Celestial Body You Want To Observe

    Sure, you can use any properly-equipped telescope to do some amateur astronomy.  If you want to observe specific astronomical bodies, though, you’ll have to fumble with a star map and painstakingly navigate to whatever it is you’re hoping to chance upon.  Yeah, it’s highly inefficient.  The Nexstar Evolution changes that. Made by Celestron, it’s a telescope that can automatically orient itself to any documented celestial body you tell it to.  Want to look at the Andromeda Galaxy?  Not a problem.  [...]

    Apple Watch Brings New Communication Methods, Complete Fitness Tracking Capabilities

    We’ve seen the startups take their stab at smartwatches.  Then, we’ve seen Google and its manufacturing partners make their play.  This time around, it’s the big dog of mobile unveiling its wearable tech: the Apple Watch. Like most smartwatches, the device is meant to pair with a smartphone (in this case, any iPhone 5 or newer), sending notifications, calls, and messages on the phone directly to the wrist-mounted gadget.  As expected, however, that barely scratches the surface of what the [...]

    We Knew The Mercedes AMG GT Was Going To Be Hot, But This Car Is Absolute Fire!

    With last year’s final hurrah of the SLS AMG, people have been looking forward to the introduction of Mercedes-Benz’s newest flagship sports car.   While we had high expectations just based on the brilliant brute that was its predecessor, the actual Mercedes AMG GT, unveiled last night, is just all manners of unanticipated awe.  Forget hot, this car is on fire!

    2016 Jaguar XE Is Beautiful And It’s Going To Give BMW’s 3-Series A Run For Their Money

    Jaguar hasn’t found much success in the premium compact sedan market, a lane dominated by vehicles like the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes C-Class.  We guess that only means they need to try harder and it looks like they’re doing just that with the freshly-unveiled 2016 Jaguar XE. For the vehicle’s design, Jaguar appears to have gone the conservative route, producing a car that’s mostly in line with the badge’s traditional aesthetics, from the coupe profile to the long bonnet [...]

    3D Robotics IRIS+ Drone Can Navigate And Record Subjects All On Its Own

    Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Features A Bent Screen Edge That Serves As A Secondary Display

    Samsung has never been afraid to be at the forefront of cutting edge innovations.  And the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge definitely falls in that category, with a screen that uncannily bends towards the right edge. That’s right, it bends.  It’s not entirely curved like some handsets released in the past.  Instead, it bends just at the outer edge on one side, creating a truly unique display that brings some nifty new features to the mix. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge’s [...]
