    iPhone Controlled Philips BlueTouch Pain Relief Patch Helps You Soothe Aching Muscles

    Since we’re already in the process of controlling everything with our phones, why not our muscle relief treatments?  Philips is doing just that with the BlueTouch, a wireless TENS (transcutaneous electronic nerve stimulation) device that you can control on an iPhone. TENS devices, of course, have been around for years, helping ease both chronic and acute muscle pains for many individuals.  Philips’ new device does exactly the same thing as those, passing electric current over a person’s skin to activate [...]

  • 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed Cranks Out 811 Pound-Feet Of Torque

    2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed Cranks Out 811 Pound-Feet Of Torque

    Bentley’s luxury flagship Mulsanne is usually passed over when it comes to building high-speed performance versions – the Mulsanne was plain too classy for that ish.  For some reason, the company is changing their stance on that with the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed, which combines extensive luxury with some frighteningly murderous power. An upgrade to Bentley’s venerable 6.75-liter pushrod V8 now lets it put out 530hp, a good-size bump up from the standard model’s 505 ponies.  Torque, however, is the [...]

    Sennheiser Urbanite: Hey Kids, We Can Make Headphones With Massive Bass Sound, Too

    Sure, audiophiles love Sennheiser, but that kind of love doesn’t get you the kind of mammoth sales among the younger generation that made Beats an unprecedented phenomenon.  Sure, it’s probably too late to beat Dre, Jimmy Iovine, and Apple at their own game, but who says Sennheiser can’t bring a slice of that young people market into its fold?  That’s what they’re trying to do with this Sennheiser Urbanite. Just like Beats, it’s aimed at the cool, hip urban crowd.    [...]

  • Quirky’s Pickup Power Puts An External Battery Inside A Power Strip… And It Somehow Makes Sense

    Quirky’s Pickup Power Puts An External Battery Inside A Power Strip… And It Somehow Makes Sense

    At first glance, the Pickup Power looks like the most inefficient power strip ever made, with a trio of outlets on one side and none on the other.  Except, it turns out, that’s the trick that makes this power strip more useful than others. Developed over at Quirky, the other half of the strip that doesn’t have any outlets actually contains a removable power brick that you can slip in your pocket for charging your mobile gadgets while on the [...]

    Freak Out Your Sister By Putting Her iPhone In This Chuka Soba Smartphone Dock

    Dunking your iPhone into your portable bowl full of ramen noodle soup?  Not a good idea.  Dunking your sister’s phone in this Chuka Soba Smartphone Dock while she screams in horror six feet away?  Absolutely hilarious. It’s hilarious because this isn’t a real bowl of Tokyo-style chuka soba.  Instead, it’s just one of those fake food displays people put in front of restaurants, so you can see what the food looks like without having to go in and inspect what’s [...]

    Deska Board Lets You Windsurf Without Any Water For Miles

    Because the world can never have a shortage of ridiculously fun looking ways to cruise the city streets, someone made a board that you can use to windsurf on concrete roads.  Called the Deska Board, it can be armed with a sail similar to windsurfing equipment, allowing you to use the wind to propel you from the mini-mart, where you bought a six-pack of beer, to your buddy Caleb’s house, where you will drink it while playing Killzone Shadow Fall [...]

    Supersize Bed: Is That Giant French Fries On My Headboard Or Is This All A Dream?

    I know, French fries are horrible.  They pack a ridiculous amount of calories, yet you need so much to get full, all while being desert-level barren when it comes to nutrition.  But you know what?  They taste so good.  And you know what else?  They make for an incredibly fun-looking bed, too.  Seriously, just look at this Supersize Bed. A collaboration between Cecilia Carey and Harry Par, it’s a bed frame with a headboard styled to look like a giant [...]

    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! Arguably the best-looking flagship the company’s ever made, it brings classic sports car proportions with just enough adornment to look [...]

    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

    There’s no shortage of drones available in the market for aerial photography and videography.  When it comes to ease of use, though, it’s going to be tough to find one as newbie-friendly as the IRIS+. Made by 3D Robotics, it’s an erstwhile regular quadcopter drone, similar to the ones from Parrot and the dozen or so consumer drone manufacturers in the market.  Except it’s designed to eliminate the skills barrier, giving everyone, from tech-averse grandmas to clumsy kids, the chance [...]

Designed for precise drawing and note-taking, the digital writing tool features a fine tip that’s as close to pointed as you can get without scratching the tablet’s Retina display.  Seriously, it even looks more like a real pen than a capacitive stylus, so the [...]

    This Is A Beer Briefcase For The Beer-Drinking Pro

    It doesn’t matter whether you carry those half-dozen bottles on their original six-pack carton, a beer coathanger, or some other specialty contraption, walking around with a six-pack of booze is never classy.  Walking around with a briefcase, on the other hand, always seems dignified.  That’s why the Beer Briefcase exists.
