    Project Livewire: Yes, Harley-Davidson Just Made An Electric Motorcycle

    Iconic motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has announced their first ever electric motorcycle.  Called Project Livewire, it’s not a full-fledged commercial product just yet.  Instead, the company will be touring it around, giving potential customers a chance to test-ride the bike, then using feedback from that campaign to determine how it moves forward with the product. The campaign, called “The Project LiveWire Experience,” will be a cross-country tour along Route 66 that starts in New York and continues to 29 other US [...]

    LEGO Fusion Combines Brick Building With Tablet Games For An Entirely New Way Of Playing

    These days, it’s not unusual to see little kids glued to their tablets rather than playing with actual toys.  And it’s going to be hard to peel them away from it.  If LEGO wants kids to keep playing with the company’s classic construction toys, they’ll need to get creative.  And that’s definitely the case with LEGO Fusion, a new box set that combines physical construction bricks with tablet-based play. Melding the world of digital and analog play, each LEGO Fusion [...]

  • Bentley Continental GT3-R Turns The Luxury Grand Tourer Into A Sports Beast

    Bentley Continental GT3-R Turns The Luxury Grand Tourer Into A Sports Beast

    Bentleys aren’t exactly slow-running cars, but they’re far from being known as race-focused spitfires either.  That changes soon with the Bentley Continental GT3-R, a limited-edition driver-focused version of its race-winning Continental GT3. Limited to just 300 examples, the vehicle will be hand-built in Crewe just like the rest of its luxury-focused Continental brethren.  Before shipping to showrooms, though, it will pass by Bentley’s Motorsport division, where it gets tweaked and fine-tuned to effect serious improvements in performance. Powered by a [...]

    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

    Chances are, you’re used to working with smartphones using nothing but the touchscreen display.  And it’s great.  But if you’ve ever wished you can have physical buttons for triggering certain functions on your device, you might want to take a look at 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.  [...]

    Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

    We’re huge fans of the Quadski and its double-duty talents, ripping through bodies of water as capably as it does on rugged terrains.  Except it only had enough space to sit one, which ruled out meeting a girl at the beach and spending the day impressing her with your amphibious driving skills.  Not the case with the new Quadski XL, a two-seater version of the versatile recreational ride. Like its single-seat brother, the vehicle can transform from ATV to watercraft [...]

    Want to listen to music during a meeting but don’t want anyone to know you’re not paying attention?  When you get your own pair of Earin, that won’t be a problem. Billed as the smallest wireless earbuds in the market, the thing nearly disappears when plugged in your ear canal, making it completely inconspicuous to wear.  Seriously, unless someone stares at your ear for an extended period, we doubt anyone will notice.  Heck, even if someone stares at your ear, [...]

    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 [...]

    Behold, The Churro Ice Cream Sandwich

    Food mash-ups are definitely a thing these days.  Sometimes, it works, like the case with the Waffle Taco.  Sometimes, it doesn’t.  One look at this Churro Ice Cream Sandwich, though, and the watering in your mouth tells all you need to know about which camp it belongs in. Made by LA-based pop-up operation Churro Borough, it combines two well-loved desserts into one cold, sweet treat that’s tough to imagine not being an instant crowd-favorite any place you see it being [...]

    Hazet Collapsible Tool Trolley: This Toolbox Turns Into A Mobile Shelf

    You’re working on the car, both arms covered in a sleeveful of grease. You dig into your toolbag to get an O ring sitting in the bottom, smearing the rest of the tools with the same slime all over your arms. Bad idea. The Hazet Collapsible Tool Trolley lets you keep the same tools in one place while avoiding messy results. When closed, it looks like a large toolbox that you can carry with two hands or pull along the ground. When [...]

    ZR Hoverboard: It’s Not The Flying Skateboard We Asked For, But We’ll Take It

    When I read someone made a hoverboard, I really thought our Back to the Future dreams are finally realized. Then I found out it wasn’t. And I was sad. But then I checked out the ZR Hoverboard and I wasn’t sad anymore. Total want! You know those hydro jetpacks that are attached to a jet ski’s propulsion then mounted on your body so you can fly over a body of water like a superhero? Well, this is the same thing. Except instead [...]

    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 [...]

  • Frozen Beer Slushie Maker Will Make Your Beer Extra Cold And Extra Fun

    Frozen Beer Slushie Maker Will Make Your Beer Extra Cold And Extra Fun

    Someone in Japan came up with the idea of making slushies with beer, then using that slushy to top off a pint of beer. It sounds amazing. What ancient Japanese craft do they use to make that? Apparently, it’s this Frozen Beer Slushie Maker. Made by Japanese beverage company Kirin Ichiban, the device started out as a promotional item during a summer campaign back in 2012, when the company started opening bars that served frozen beer slushies. It turned out [...]

    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 [...]

Yes, trying to use this to surf will be an [...]

  • 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 [...]
