    This month we’ve run a series of gift suggestions. In our final installment, Cool Tools founder Kevin Kelly selects his favorite toolish gifts. Happy holidays! Stick N Stack Magnetic Tiles ($150)  Magna-tiles are large plastic shapes with super magnets buried along their edges so that they can be linked into solid sculptures. They are an open ended construction system that can make tall and complex buildings very fast. They are a lot of fun for kids who are too small to use Legos. We’ve reviewed them previously on Cool Tools. To do much with them, though, you need lots of tiles,…

    While 4G LTE connectivity’s speed has brought internet freedom in the palm of our hands, we have always contemplated why such form of connectivity has been rolled out for tablets. Granted, they might provide users with freedom of being connected around the geographical boundaries of their country, but is that really worth picking out an LTE tablet? We don’t think so; which is why after thinking long and hard about the pros and cons of an LTE tablet, we have listed down 5 reasons why you should absolutely stay away from them. it’s not worth your money Not everyone on the planet has a…

    17 Dec 2014 | 11:22 pm
    Do you love art? Well, art can be very expensive to collect if you are a serious collector, although having to preserve your collection itself is another story altogether – where you would also need to take extra care to ensure that it does not get damaged. However, there are times when you would want to vent your anger – and spoiling an expensive painting could be a therapeutic experience. Well, if you would want to give one of Monet’s many paintings a lesson in destruction, you can do so without any kind of guilt with this website, Punch-A-Monet. This website is the collective…

    OnePlus did run into some snafus when it comes to holding a competition earlier this year, where it did not go down too well. OnePlus has not stopped there, but they have instead announced a different contest for their fans, where this one has no kind of sexist overtones about it, but rather, to look for customers “who refuse to compromise” when it comes to naming the upcoming custom ROM. OnePlus did mention that the unnamed ROM will “be close to stock, bloat-free, and highly customizable.” Apart from that, it will be released “much sooner than you likely expected.” Which is a…

    Could Facebook be testing out a brand new user interface when it comes to its official Android application? Apparently so, as Facebook looks as though they are gradually flicking the switch on for a server-side change to kick in, that will allow the app to enjoy a somewhat Material Design flavor. Earlier in the month of October, Google Now received a new Material Design makeover, and this looks set to continue in the same way. Facebook has yet to make an official or formal announcement where this brand new user interface is concerned, which will see it introduce a more consistent and colorful…

    We have heard of some improvements made to Google Drive not too long ago, where Gmail for Web has been updated to deliver better Google Drive attachment support, and the OK Google command too, will be making its way to the Google Drive app. While we do know that Google Drive would allow one to safely store, access, and share all of your files, there are a couple of updates for Android and iOS versions that would allow you to do just that: If you happen to be rocking onto the Android platform, you will be able to perform searches for files in Drive from the Google app. For instance, if you…

      You can hit snooze on your alarm, but you can’t exactly hit snooze on someone, can you? That’s what the developers of Wakie are counting on to make sure that you’re awake when your alarm goes off. It’s an app that makes alarms social in the sense that it works by having a complete stranger give you a wake up call. Just set it up so that you’ll get a call at the desired time and go to bed. No contact information or numbers will be exchanged, and the call will automatically be disconnected after a minute to save everyone from awkward goodbyes. Wakie is…

  • Self-Tightening Bionic Bra Being Developed

    David Ponce
    17 Dec 2014 | 9:34 am
    It’s a dilemma most men are unaware of: that of what type of bra to wear? Something comfortable will usually not provide enough support at the gym or during vigorous activity. And sports bras will keep your boobs in place, but at the cost of comfort. A two-bra approach is the most common solution, but researchers at the University Of Wollongong in Autralia have spent the last 25 years trying to develop a bra that does well in both situations. It’s only recently, thanks to new materials and 3D printing, that they are starting to see good results. The ‘Bionic Bra’…

    If you’re the sort of person who wants to strap a camera to your head and then go jump off a mountain, the $400 GoPro Hero4 Silver is the camera you want. It takes everything that we loved about the GoPro Hero3+ Black from last year—the excellent image and video quality, superb durability, great audio, and a huge ecosystem of mounts and accessories—and overhauls the control system with a new touchscreen, which makes it far easier to use. For strapping to your drone, deep sea diving, kayaking, or bungee jumping, the Hero4 Silver is the camera to beat.

During a real emergency, seconds count and having what you need already available means you can save some that precious time for more reasonable action. You never know exactly what you’ll need, either, so it’s always a good idea to plan for the worst and hope for the best. In today’s world, technology plays a large role in our daily lives, so much that it’s easy to forget just how heavily we rely on it. It turns out, there are a few more reasons why we can rely on modern technology even more.

The reality is that the tiny, built-in speakers are only great for basic sound. You can’t expect the hardware to develop much depth for music and entertainment. Many speaker cases merely channel or amplify the sound from a smartphone.

    17 Dec 2014 | 6:00 pm
    For as much as I loved the LG 9300's curved OLED screen, trying to navigate through the set's menus using the motion-controlled smart remote and the onscreen Web OS menu could be an infuriating task. Hopefully the second generation navigation menu that LG just announced ahead of CES will make it less of a chore.Read more...

  • Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Hands-On Video Review: A Flexible, Capable Ultrabook

    12 Dec 2014 | 2:06 am
    Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro 2-in-1 ultrabook has made a bit of a splash as of late, from appearing in a number of holiday shopping-infused TV spots, to flash prank comparisons tricking unwitting mall shoppers into thinking they got framed for busting up a MacBook Air laptop. It's with good reason that Lenovo is making an effort to amplify interest

The Apple Watch isn’t out yet, but the need for consumers to customize the watch face of their device is growing as smartwatches like the Moto 360, allows them to customize the watch face.

    It feels as if we've been waiting for decades for battery technology to take its next quantum leap in terms of capacity and longevity. Sure, laptops these days last a little longer than they did ten years ago, but much of that is due to processors and the like consuming far less power now compared to yesteryear. But, if you can't create a

    17 Dec 2014 | 12:30 pm
    I found a stack of old CDs in our attic a few weeks ago, and I was enjoying the nostalgia of listening to mix CDs I made 10-15 years ago. But as I’ve gone through the various tracks, I noticed a disturbing trend; many of the social issues being addressed in this CDs are still issues a decade later. First, and most timely, was Le Tigre’s “Bang Bang”. Here’s a YouTube clip, but beware, it is an NSFW song: For those who can’t catch the whole video, here’s a (censored) sample of the lyrics: Wrong f—– time Wrong f—– place There is…

    I was listening to Tom Merritt’s Daily Tech News Show and they mentioned a great site and app that will help you save money while going home for the holidays. It’s called Fuel my Route, and the goal is to show the price of gas along the route you’re traveling. This in turn should help you find the cheapest gas. How does Fuel My Route work?  Well when on either the app or the website, you enter your beginning and ending points, the type of gas you want, how far off the route do you want to go for gas, and how often you want to see gas prices; it will show you the prices…

    They say some people have stars in their eyes. Others can have stars in their ears. Literally, with these Constellation Earrings. There are two different sets of earrings available: Big Dipper/Little Dipper and Orion/Cassiopeia. The earrings are made of sterling silver with white topaz chips for the stars. That’s elegantly geeky. You can rotate them downward and wear them as a dangle earrings too. Great for astronomy fans and people who like stars (isn’t that everyone?). Scientifically proven to be stylish. When you wish upon a star, your ears ring true. Or something like that. If…

    This is a smart design idea. Hasbro has redesigned the packaging for many of your favorite classic board games so they store in a classy book-style vertical manner. No more stacks of unsightly brightly colored wide game boxes that you have to hide in a basement rec room or closet. These games all match and can be proudly displayed on any bookshelf- they look like a row of classic books. Show them off in your living room, den, library, or even the office. The games themselves are exactly the same as the original versions you played as a kid (and still do). The only major difference is that the…

The current smart watches on the market require the tedious task of looking at a screen. And the so-called smart watch still need to be tethered to your smartphone, so how smart is it really?

Wow, it looks like engineers have been watching Speedy Gonzalez and improving upon the windup mouse diversion. Mousr is the first robotic cat toy that can see and react to a cat’s movements just like real prey . . . think Pinky with a brain. This is pure genius.

    This humongous power-plug is a MacArtney Wet Mate Connector that allows undersea cables for floating windmills to be connected below the water's surface. But mostly I like it because it is has those outsized, Tonka-toy yellow rugged good looks.

Obviously, the biggest, ugliest one should be named after me, but the rules state, "the individual must have been recognized as an 'art-historically significant figure' for more than 50 years, and dead for at least three."

So now I'm just going to close my eyes and point at one. *closes eyes, points* Dammit, I forgot to open my eyes before I stopped pointing. New plan: I'm gonna throw a dart over my cubicle wall, and, if I hit someone, I get the painted one.

However, when it came time to install the handles on the cabinets, I tried carefully measuring the first one I did and it did not work very well. Then I found IKEA sells a drill template for just this purpose, it makes it trivial to install handle after handle in the same spot each time, and the handles came out great. The drill template aligns with one side of the cabinet door and you can mark and drill in seconds. I used a Sharpie to circle the holes that I was marking to make it even easier to…

  • SolaRoad Solar Bike Path

    15 Dec 2014 | 5:07 am
    Cycling is a characteristic passion of the Netherlands, where bikes outnumber people. As of November, the country is home to the first solar bike path, SolaRoad. As sunlight hits the solar panel-paved route, energy is absorbed and added to the municipality’s supply. So far, the solar portion of the road is only 70 meters long, but it nonetheless produces enough energy to power several homes. The path itself is made of crystalline silicate solar cells that are encased in concrete and covered with a translucent layer of treated glass so that it isn’t slippery. Cycle Path [Cassandra Daily]

A new app called Next Glass is trying to fix that, and its solution works pretty well.

  • How Technology Is Helping People In The Workplace And Beyond

    New technology is helping people in new and interesting ways. When people think of technology, they often associate it with work because it’s hard to imagine the world of work without telephones and fax machines, hardware and software, wireless communication and video conferencing. Technology has made work faster and more efficient, and it has reduced overheads while improving revenue. A powerful example of the incessant demand for technology is a look at how CISCO Systems, a retailer of networking solutions, has been able to earn $12.36 billion this year despite a difficult global…

  • The Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Brick is not a comfortable place to rest your head

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:13 pm
    It’s important to make yourself think critically and analytically very often. Just like you would lift weights or run to keep your body in shape, you need to give your mind a workout too. Some choose to do word or number puzzles, but playing with patterns can also make for a good and confusing time. If you thought the idea of a regular Rubik’s Cube was hard, then the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Brick may not be up your alley. Of course, if you’re on the other end of the spectrum, then you’re likely looking for a challenge. This rectangular pillow will train your left and right…
  • The Egloo is a candle powered heater that keeps you warm in the winter

    17 Dec 2014 | 1:48 pm
    The colder weather is here, and our main focus is to keep warm without adding tons of money to the electricity bill. You can put on layers of clothing and wrap up in blankets, but sometimes that isn’t enough. Of course, turning up the temperature will heat your entire place, and you may only need additional heating for one room. If this is the case for you, then a space heater would be the common choice, though it will be adding to your bill as well. Should you be a fan of candles, and don’t mind spending ten cents a day to warm your home, then the Egloo would be a valid option.

  • 5 Ways to Reduce Roaming Costs

    Guest Author
    23 Nov 2014 | 6:29 pm
    Sponsored Post Mobile usage costs are something many of us don’t think too much about when we’re home, but when we go on holiday, we often discover that it’s something we should have considered. Usually we can connect just fine, but hostel and hotel Wi-Fi is usually horrible, or ridiculously overpriced. Likewise, roaming fees can crush an otherwise normal phone balance, leaving even the most careful of us wondering how we managed to pull up such an outrageous bill.

    Often computers display messages when something goes wrong. Usually these are essential for alerting the computer user so they can resolve the problem. However, when computers are used for public purposes, error messages can be embarrassing. Flickr has a collection of these in the Public Computer Errors group pool. Many of the local buses have a screen near the front with a map of the route, information about the current and next stops and a scrolling news ticker. On a recent journey we saw raw HTML tags displayed with CSS in the news ticker text. Recently some of the local train stations…

    A couple of months ago, I found this adorable shirt on MaruMaru Dayori: I really liked it but… It’s yellow. And there is that weird black line across the bottom that looks weird if you wear it with anything that isn’t black. And I prefer long sleeves to short ones, especially because it’s getting to be wintertime again. And it would look so very good in red… So, I created one of my own, using the original as a guide.

See if I learn anything. I set it for French. I wanted to learn French so I could read the advertising posts on Facebook from Safari Alto, a camper manufacturer from Montreal, Canada. It was a humble goal, especially since they usually provide an English translation. To be fair, I speak Spanish pretty well and took a semester of Latin in college, so this is the third time I’ve tackled a language. Some of…

    My boy put Angry Bird stickers all over his computer when we first gave it to him. He is no longer obsessed with Angry Birds. Angry Birds are for little kids now, and he took off all the stickers. Even though we gave him some Goo Gone, there was still some horrible, sticky residue. The residue stayed there and we pretty much resigned ourselves to a disgusting computer until my husband tried a Magic Eraser on it. The result was… magical, to say the least. We couldn’t believe how well it worked to remove the dirt AND the sticky residue. If you are dealing with sticker goo on your…

    Since I joined Mozilla almost a year ago, I have been more conscious of the independent web meme.   Today, Mozilla celebrates it’s 10th Anniversary of Firefox which is all about choice, control, and transparency on the web [1]. While I was personally aware of independence on the Internet (I’ve been a Firefox user for a long time), I truly did not comprehend the importance of this subject.  Last night on my flight out to Mountain View (thru SFO), I watched The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin and this reinforced independent thinking as it pertains to global currency.

    Being a geek can sometimes become pretty expensive. Different devices offer differing amounts of geek fun for the buck. Every car and pickup manufactured from 1996 forward has what is known as an OBD2 port. OBD is short for on board diagnostics. The OBD2 port was originally mandated as part of emission control efforts. There are plenty of consumer-oriented OBD2 port scanners. However, with the proliferation of smart phones and tablets, something new has come along that many people have yet to become aware of.

  • Sol Republic Relays are the Best Sports In-Ear Headphones I've Ever Owned

    Dave Aiello
    13 Dec 2014 | 9:54 am
    Earlier this fall, I decided to spend some gift money on a pair of good in-ear headphones for my iPhone that I use for exercise. I chose Sol Republic Relays in the Black/White color scheme. When you are wearing the Relays, they look very much like the Apple EarPods that come with the iPhone. But these headphones come with four different sets of Ear Tips that provide many semi-custom fit options. Although the Apple EarPods were a significant improvement over the old iPhone headphones in terms of reliability, they have been badly received because they have unusual teardrop-shaped ear buds that…

    Dave Aiello
    3 Dec 2014 | 7:43 am
    Kathleen and I have lived in our house in Newtown for almost nine years. When we first moved in, we hadn't had time to buy outdoor holiday decorations, so we used solutions like the Chelsea Light Flurries Projector to blanket the front of our house in virtual snowflakes. But in the years that followed, like most other people in our community, we invested in Christmas traditional lights. And the ones I've started to purchase recently are long outdoor Christmas light sets that can be strung together in series and connected to a single outdoor power receptacle. The LED Christmas lights I like…
  • Apple Corrected Location of Building on Apple Maps within Three Days

    Dave Aiello
    3 Dec 2014 | 6:36 am
    One of the reasons I started RinkAtlas eight years ago was because a lot of the locations of hockey arenas that were available from navigation systems and mapping websites weren't accurate. This continues to be a problem today, although the number of serious location errors keeps dropping. I had a really good experience the other day correcting a location error in Apple Maps. I used Apple Maps to get directions to Wissahickon Skating Club. The Apple Maps app on my iPhone told me that I had "arrived" when I reached the stadium at Chestnut Hill Academy. Anybody who knows the area would know…

  • WhatsApp To Launch For Desktop: Buckles Up Among Competitors

    15 Dec 2014 | 5:08 am
    There is no denying the fact that WhatsApp is the most dominant messenger among the other messaging apps when it comes to carrying out daily conversations. But what it lacked so far was a desktop client through which one need not check their phones while being online through PC or laptops as it will hinder the workflow. Downloading Bluestacks or any other Android emulators is not only a time consuming process but it also logs you out from your phone due to which you may lose all your conversations and literally need to re verify your number. One may also shift to Skype, Facebook Messenger…

    Samsung has increased the size of its smartphones considerably with its Galaxy series and has made us familiar to the term ‘phablet’. Apple, too who took pride over their smaller screen phones had to now cater to the changing choices of consumers by launching iPhone 6+ which is 5.5 inches. Although the screen sizes have increased, our hands have remained the same. And accidently dropping our phones, or struggling to handle it with one hand are some of the problems we have learned to live with.

    5 Dec 2014 | 3:18 am
    CAPTCHA is an acronym for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. It was a means to an end for preventing large-scale automated spam. CAPTCHA showed distorted text which a robot cannot decipher. These distorted texts or images were usually placed at the end of registration forms etc without which you could not proceed. CAPTCHA is a computer program that checks if you are a human or not and prevents spam and malware which might extract data from the site. Google has now developed a smarter software that uses simple tick-boxes to prove if the user is a human…

  • Panasonic AX802 4K TV review

    16 Dec 2014 | 12:33 am
    I have spent the last two weeks living with the Panasonic AX802 ultra HD (4K) television. Yes, this 50-inch gogglebox is large, especially when placed within the environment of my tiny London flat, but is it any good? This has been the first year in which Panasonic has not had a plasma TV in their line up. The sad news was announced late last year with operations finally ceasing in March but they have deployed their boffins to sort out the Panasonic LED LCD range. The Panasonic Viera AX802 (also known as AX800 in North America and Europe) series of 4K Ultra HD TVs is available in three screen…

  • Moore's Law and Affordable Computing

    James Grahame
    2 Dec 2014 | 7:32 pm
    You've probably heard of Moore's Law. It's the notion that the number of transistors in dense integrated circuits will double every two years. When Intel co-founder Gordon Moore threw out the idea in 1965, he had no inkling that his observation would hold true for the next 50 years. In 1971, the Intel 4004 microprocessor contained about 2,300 transistors. In 1990, the Intel 80486 processor offered a staggering 1,000,000 transistors, and a modern 6-core Intel i7 processor crams several billion transistors onto a single die.  Analysts have highlighted the amazing rise in desktop computing…

  • Earliest Known Official Batmobile For Sale

    James Grahame

    Robin Lee writes, "A heavily-customised Oldsmobile said to be the first officially-licenced Batmobile will go to auction later in December. Created in 1963, three years before the infamously camp Batman TV show hit the airwaves, DC Comics allowed a US chap named Forrest Robinson to build a Batmobile." I love the swooping look of this prehistoric Batmobile and I'm somewhat sad it didn't have the opportunity to star in its own series. Preferably in black & white. With gangsters. The minimum bid price is $112,500, but the auction house is expecting the final price to be significantly…
  • The Last Revox Repairman in Brazil

    The Revox Man from Baucia on Vimeo. Alfredo Luiz Baucia writes, "I think you would like to know about the last Revox specialist still working in Brazil, Getulio Cinquetti." Indeed, we would. Alfredo took the time to capture a typical working day for Mr Cinquetti on video. The result is a nod to the past and a reminder that in a few short years none of the original Revox technicians from the 1960s and 1970s will be around. Sadly, few want to learn their craft and there's a real risk that decades of technical knowledge will vanish moments after the last puff of solder smoke from the old…

I'm the father of a young child, which means I've suffered through dozens of episodes of Dora the Explorer, whose target demographic seems to be acid tripping bilingual preschoolers. I don't think children genuinely like this kind of show, they just accept it because they don't know any better and parents think it's safe. The simple truth is that kids crave real cartoons. Grownup cartoons. Wickedly funny…

  • Transportable Coldbrew Coffee Maker

    C. S. Magor
    8 Dec 2014 | 5:44 pm
    If you have never tasted cold-brewed coffee, you owe it to yourself to try. It tastes rich, flavorful and lacks much of the acidity that you find in a conventionally-brewed cup of coffee. It tastes great over ice, with or without milk, and you can even heat it up. While there are a few brew-in-the-fridge models on the market at the moment (the most famous being the Hario Mizudashi), this one stands apart in that it seems to use considerably less coffee (4 tablespoons for 20 ounces) – and in its portability (it has a screw-top and a neoprene sleeve). Brewing method, as described by Think…

    The fabric that you see before you is the result of a collaboration between Heriot Watt University’s School of Textiles and, Harris Tweed and Johnny Walker – and it permanently smells like Johnny Walker Black. The tweed carries aromas of rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit and dark chocolate tones and has been designed to reflect the colors of the whisky ingredients. The scent is layered into the fabric throughout the finishing process and is permanently imbued in the tweed that will not go off even after dry cleaning. On the surface, it might seem somewhat silly for people to go…

The 3D-printed case, as the name implies, is designed to house a Rasberry Pi. The cartridge slot hides some conveniently positioned USB ports and the Ethernet jack. The grand sum of $49 gets you the case, while $119 gets you the Pitendo Ultimate, which includes a Raspberry Pi Model B+, an 8GB SD Card with RetroPie, One USB SNES Controller, an AC Adapter and an HDMI Cable – everything except the ROMs, which you will need to install yourself.

    If you ever felt that you should have your ugly mug on a loveable, huggable doll, the folks at Mahinarium, a Hungary-based doll maker, have you covered. For the eminently reasonable starting price of $95, they will turn one of your pictures into a doll. The asking price gets you a basic 12-inch doll, fully clothed, with a pair of glasses (if applicable). Adding pets, favorite objects or children costs more. It is worth pointing out that the process is not fire-and-forget: you send a photo to Mahinarium and they send you a mock-up image for feedback, you can work through the fine tuning of the…

  • Digital Code Lock using Arduino with LCD Display and User Defined Password

    5 Dec 2014 | 6:04 am
    We have published a digital code lock using arduino some weeks before. This one is a little different. The earlier version was based on a defined password, where the user can not change it. Moreover there was no LCD display interfaced with the project to output lock status. This project is a much improved version of the same digital code lock which comes with a user defined password and LCD display. The user will be prompted to set a password at installation. This password inputted at installation will continue to serve the lock until it is changed. The user can... The post Digital Code Lock…

It’s probably the most awesomest toy pet you could have, and potentially the toy of the year. Screw those lame hamsters. You can’t put those things in a jar. Actually, you can.

    At an event held yesterday evening in Beijing, Chinese smartphone giant Huawei celebrated the one year anniversary of its Honor 6 handset by unveiling the taunting-ly titled Honor 6 Plus. Coming off as a shot fired across the bow of Apple’s recent jump to a larger iPhone, the latest addition to the Honor range sports a 5.5in 1080p JDI negative LCD and Huawei’s own Kirin 925 octa-core chipset. The real kicker, however, is the inclusion of two 8 megapixel rear cameras which boast to pump up the effective pixel size to 1.98 microns for cleaner images and improved sensitivity. The…

  • 8 Of The Best Computer Monitors For Gaming Over 24-Inches

    Shawn Sanders
    17 Dec 2014 | 10:30 am
    The hunt for the best gaming monitor is afoot. There’s a new visual fidelity milestone available for wanton coveting. The exalted 4K (3820×2160) display resolution is very slowly inching toward affordability with some of the industry’s newest most capable PC monitors. A 4K display resolution is virtually 4-times that of the old 1080p standard and produces richer more detailed images thanks to the increase in pixels present horizontally and vertically. Yet resolution is not the “end-all be-all” of this particular tale. It is definitely a major deciding factor when evaluating a…

The data, T-mobile claims, is Unlimited (sort-of).  I really dislike putting that condition in but it’s worth noting that offering unlimited tethering has not been on the plate of any carrier in a very long time (if ever).   You do…

    The new Spirit Charger is an upgrade for the Tetris power bank, one of our best selling units. The Tetris was popular because it was easy to use. In addition to being a portable power bank it served as a USB wall outlet, which meant that when it came time to grab the Tetris, it was always charged for you. When the time came to head out and your phone battery was low, it was ready to help. When the power went out, it was on, and when you discovered your battery was low as you sat on the couch to tweet your world views, it was there (regardless of your views!). Well the Spirit Charger improves…

Well, then the DJI Phantom for GoPro is the answer! This is also the most preferred drone mount for GoPro owners. This DJI drone that you can buy from Amazon for only $449 is a bargain at this price. Keep in mind that other drones for sale by DJI cost over $500. This drone costs slightly less without ANY compromise on quality. It is quite impressive if you think about all the technology packed in this little flying object. The DJI…

  • DJI Phantom FC40 Review

    Matt Larson
    6 Dec 2014 | 1:14 pm
    One of the most popular drones for sale this Christmas is predicted to be the DJI Phantom FC40. It is a strong model, reasonably priced (a lot cheaper compared to the DJI Phantom 2 models) and sturdier than the AR Parrot 2.0 drone. We have therefore decided to test and write a review for this FC40 drone below. One of its main advantages is that you can also attach a GoPro to it and control the GoPro via the GoPro Hero+ app via Wifi separately from the drone. This is possible because the DJI Phantom FC40 operates on the 5.8GHz frequency so it will not interfere with the GoPro camera. We…

The Wide-Angle Zoom AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f4.0G IF-ED. Used with one of Nikon’s DX format D-SLRs (which have APS-C size sensors), the 12-24mm has an effective focal range of 18-36mm which means it’s great for panoramic landscapes, street scenes, cityscapes and architectural subjects.

  • How to Choose a Compact Digital Camera

    2 Dec 2014 | 8:17 am
    Ready to go out and buy your first compact digital camera? But before you gave your hard-earned money to a camera of your choice check out our tips below on how to choose a compact digital camera. A basic digital camera will suit someone who wants to take pictures to view on their computer and create 7x5in prints. It should cost around $80, but there may be hidden downsides such as slow performance and very basic user controls. Spend a little more and you’ll get a higher resolution. A 16-megapixel sensor has the potential to produce sharp prints up to A3 size, but only if it and the lens…
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: Best Digital Video Camera?

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review The term “game changer” is bandied around a little too much in relation to many new cameras, but as far as the Panasonic GH4 is concerned, it’s pretty well on the money. Firstly, Panasonic’s mirrorless flagship is invading territory that was once the exclusive domain of D-SLRs, offering a more compact (but no less capable) alternative to the models popular with video makers. Secondly, it’s mounting an attack on the camcorder market by adopting all the video-related features that are standard on pro-level or semi- pro models, but haven’t been found…
  • Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM: Best Digital Lens?

    1 Dec 2014 | 1:53 am
    Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM Review It’s tempting to think that the Germans have a monopoly on premium quality interchangeable lenses – and, in particular, Zeiss’s recent offerings tend to reinforce this – but Sigma is quietly challenging with its Art Series fast primes. The first in the series, the 35mm f1.4 DG HSM, won this category last year and, this time around, Sigma had a Zeiss contender to deal with, but still won the day for a lens which earns superlatives for every aspect of its design, construction and performance. Sigma still makes all its lenses in Japan and, perhaps not…

Canon’s Pixma MG2950 is a case in point–it’s an inkjet multifunction printer (MFP) which scans, prints and makes copies. Connect it to your home network and the whole family can make use of it from PCs, Macs and even smartphones and tablets, yet it costs less than $50. Although it offers all these functions, the Canon MG2950 is still basic in many ways. Around the back you’ll find a simple paper input tray with no manual feed option, while the output tray is also a basic…

    1 Dec 2014 | 6:02 am
    ASUS is the company that makes Google’s superb Nexus 7 Android tablet and now the Taiwanese giant is making even cheaper tablets. The ASUS MeMOPad 7 is available in in a range of striking colors, including black, yellow, white, blue and our personal favorite, red. For such cheap tablet, the MeMOPad 7 is surprisingly sturdy and well-made. The thin borders on the longer sides of the screen and the smooth, slippery rear surface can make it difficult to get a comfortable firm grip on it. The ASUS MeMOPad 7 has neither the soft, easy-to-grip rear of the Nexus 7 nor the thumb rejection technology…
  • DELL Venue 8: A Let Down?

    DELL Venue 8 Review The venue 8 is Dell’s latest android tablet. If it looks familiar that’s because it comes wrapped in exactly the same hardware as the DELL Venue 8 PRO, but runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) instead of windows 8.1 From the outside both tablets look identical, cased as they are in the same sturdy, black plastic. The narrow borders to the right and left of the screen (when held vertically) make it somewhat tricky to hold and use with one hand, though the ribbed rear compensates for this somewhat with its easy-to-grip texture. At 338g, the Venue 8 is virtually the same weight as…

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 is the cheapest and smallest Amazon Tablet yet. The 8GB model just costs $79, although it’s worth paying an additional of $20 to double your storage to 16GB as there’s no microSD card slot for future storage expansion. These prices include ads on the lock screen (you can pay $10 more to get rid of them) but…
  • Asus TRANSFORMER PAD TF103C Review

    Asus Transformer Pads used to be marketed as a premium alternative to Apple’s iPad. Over time, however, Asus has brought down the price, and the current Transformer Pad TF103C costs only $348 for the tablet and keyboard dock. As a tablet alone, the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C is rather humdrum. Although the soft-touch plastic backing makes it pleasant enough to hold, it’s dumpy at 10mm thick and 556g, and there’s little about its specifications to set the heart racing. There’s a bog-standard 1,280 x 800-resolution IPS display, a 2-megapixel camera at the rear and a 1.2-megapixel…

The Aura H2O is waterproof for up to 30 minutes in depths of up to one meter; it easily survived a soak in a hot bubble bath. The Aura H2O’s 6.8in screen has a resolution of 1430×1080 pixels which is higher than the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite’s 1024×758 pixel 6in display. The result is text that is wonderfully clear and crisp, looking just as good as a printed book. The Paperwhite still looks pretty good in comparison, but far cheaper, unbranded,…

Waypoint GPS Navigation allows a drone to fly on its own with it’s flying destination or points pre-planned and configured into the drone remote control navigational software. This instructs the drone where to fly; at what height; the speed to fly at and it can also be configured to hover at each waypoint. It is a route and destination planner for your drone.

    FPV flying has been the big breakthrough and game changer in unmanned aircraft technology.  It has opened up a whole new world of aerial photography and cinematography to us. So what exactly is FPV flying.  FPV stands for “First Person View”. This FPV flying technology allows for a video camera to be mounted on an unmanned aircraft which then transmits a live video to the ground pilot.  The drone aviator is flying the rc aircraft as if they are on-board.   This is accomplished by means of tiny video cameras and wireless RF links.
