    Are there memorable moments that the Oculus Rift is able to deliver to those who are dying? Apparently so, as game artist Priscilla Firstenberg managed to spend some time with an Oculus Rift dev kit in order to assist her grandmother to experience the outside world before she is called home to glory. Cancer patient Roberta Firstenberg was too weak to be able to take a walk around her yard, which has led to her granddaughter Priscilla to use the Oculus Rift so that her grandmother is able to enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of her home, albeit in a virtual manner.Customer service lead…

    Hazel Chua

    Lix isn’t the first 3D printing pen on the market, but it definitely has a leg up against one of the first that were released (read: the 3Doodler) because its shaped and built more like a pen than some over-sized marker. That means the user can create three-dimensional renderings with better control and more precise strokes and movement. The Lix 3D printing pen was developed by Anton Suvorov, who will be launching it on Kickstarter in the new few weeks.   Lix works with both PLA and ABS plastic “ink”, so no worries there.

  • Small Speaker, Great Sound: Aiia Ssssspeaker

      Big sound, small speakers. That’s probably what best describes the Aiia Ssssspeaker. At first glance, the speaker with the unusual name doesn’t really look like much of a speaker. In fact, it probably looks more like a hockey puck when it’s not in use. But pull the collapsible cone out from the base of the speaker and get ready to get lost in your favorite tunes. One major downside? Aiia isn’t built with Bluetooth so you won’t be able to hook it up with your music player or smartphone wirelessly; instead, you’ll have to hook it up via the 3.5mm…

    First, don’t panic. This is a serious problem but you need to put it into perspective. While there is clearly a vulnerability, there are so far no reports of the flaw being exploited. And even though this flaw has been around for the past two years, almost all the major sites have fixed it — in some cases in the last few days. There have been reports of hardware — routers and other equipment — that could be affected but, so far, we have only heard about devices used in big organizations. To be safe, visit the website of the company that makes your router to see if…

    We've been huge Sonos fans here at Gear Live for years, but if there's one niggle we've heard complaints about from users more than any other, it's that you have to plug in one Sonos component into your wired network. Normally, this would mean buying the Sonos Bridge in addition to whatever speaker components you'd want to place throughout your home, because it's rare that the place you want to put your Sonos device just happens to be where your networking equipment is. The result? You'd have to pay $50 for the Bridge, upping the price of entry. Well, now Sonos is…

To fix this, GM is planning on bringing down the entry-level price of the 2016 Volt, and then offering tiered upgrades, similar to the way Tesla sells the Model S. At the low end, the 2016 Chevy Volt should cost just over $30,000, which is about $5,000 less than it currently costs now, bringing it closer in line with competing vehicles like the Honda Accord…

    You have to love these financials reports; they treat every bit of data with roughly equal weight, even though there are parts that are uninteresting and parts that make you do a double-take. Case in point, buried halfway down the page on AMD’s press release about its Q1 results is the tidbit that its Graphics and Visual Solutions revenue...

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    The HTC One M8 is the best smartphone I’ve ever used. That may seem like hyperbole, but I’ve counted, and I have personally owned 10 smartphones in the last 8 years, so the One had some serious competition for the title. How did it rise above the rest? Read on to find out! Seriously, though, I’m not joking about owning 10 smartphones. Roughly in the chronological order I owned them: Palm Treo 650 (Palm OS) Original iPhone (iOS) Samsung Epix (Windows Mobile Touch) Samsung Propel Pro (Windows Mobile Phone) Nokia E71x (Symbian) Motorola Droid (Android) Palm Pixi (WebOS) iPhone…

    Just in time for spring, HEX just announced the release of their new Hayward Collection. This new line of bags, cases and carry-alls includes 15 different pieces. Available at a variety of price-points, the Hayward Collection takes the style and design for which HEX is known, and uses a spring color palette to bring it to life.

    Sometimes you just want to be comfortable and hang out in a t-shirt and jeans. And sometimes you want to laugh. Roadkill Shirts lets you do both. The ad for their “Buy 3 Get 6 Free” one day sale popped up here on the site. I clicked. I read. I laughed. You will too. Here are a few favorites.   I wasn’t familiar with the company until I saw the ad, and I’m glad I did since Roadkill Shirts is having a huge one day sale. Buy three of their shirts, and you get six more absolutely free. You can mix colors, sizes etc., but you need to put nine shirts into your cart to…

    I loved the Element Case Rogue for iPhone 5S we reviewed last month. It is a fantastic rugged case that combines great materials, superb style and plenty of protection. Now the company has released the Element Case Rogue Ducati iPhone 5S Case. The color scheme and Ducati label combine to create a beautiful and unique case. Here’s our video look.   As you might expect, this case has the same design as the standard Rogue for iPhone 5S. This time out, however, the case has the Ducati color scheme and logo. Element Case explains the new relationship this way: “Element Case and…

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:51 pm
    The most helpful droid in the Star Wars universe is obviously R2-D2. And now he can be the most helpful droid in your kitchen with this R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set. This R2 figure actually disassembles to form a complete measuring set. His body has 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1 cup measuring cups and his detachable utility arms are 1/4, 1/2, 1 tsp, and 1/3 tbsp nesting measuring spoons. Yes 1/3 tbsp and 1 tsp are the same, but obviously Artoo isn’t going to stand up with assymetrical legs, so just let it go, ok? But let’s not forget the dome, because R2 is all about the dome. It’s a 1/2…

    Don’t hassle the ‘Hoff. Well you certainly won’t be hassling this one because it’s massive: a 13 foot long model of David Hasselhoff himself. This oversized Baywatch style Hoff was created for the SpongeBob SquarePants movie in which he played himself (who knew? well probably anyone who saw the movie did, but certainly not me). But seriously this thing is quite large: You may have also seen it in the Comedy Central roast a few years back.

    When Superman is not busy saving Lois Lane and Metropolis from daily catastrophe, he’s working hard at the Daily Planet office as his alter ego (spoiler alert!) Clark Kent. When Clark needs to open a letter, he probably uses a Superman Letter Opener, just to keep up the illusion that he is not Superman but instead a mere mortal who can’t open a letter with his bare hands (when in fact he doesn’t need to open it at all since he can see right through the envelope with x-ray vision). For this office product, the Man of Steel is more like a man of pewter holding a steel blade.

    Charles LaRocca
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:17 pm
    Until now the electric motorcycle market has been a bit of a snoozefest, hampered by boring designs and limited range but, the Johammer J1 not only looks different, it is different. This team of Austrian designers claim to have built the first electric motorcycle with a range of 125 miles. They haven’t quite cracked the 200+ mile range of their combustion cruiser counterparts but a 3+ hour ride at a leisurely country road speed is all my butt can handle anyway. At just over 7ft long, with a top speed of 75mph, this is no little wannabe motorcycle. What is really impressive is that they pack…

    Headwatch is designed for those people who have long conversations on their phone and really do not like holding the phone up to their ears for that long because it hurts their arms… and want a watch.  You know, all of those people. The following quotes are directly from Headwatch’s IndieGoGo page and I am willing to sacrifice the flow of the article for the purpose of humor.

    We’ve all been there, driving down those spooky, unlit country roads in the dead of night. Some people are brave stupid enough to cycle or even walk down them. Now, thanks to a new glow in the dark paint, Dutch country roads will be a whole lot safer (although possibly spookier). The “photo-luminising” paint is the brain child of Dutch interactive artist Daan Roosegaarde who, in a partnership with civil engineering company Heijmans, was able to make his vision of safer, greener roads a reality. The paint itself is able to store energy from solar rays during the day and emit…

    Chris from Betabrand writes, "Betabrand designer Steven B. Wheeler has discovered the Gay Jean -- more precisely, a denim that slowly but surely fades to reveal rainbow-colored thread within." How do I know these jeans are really gay? Could it just be a phase? Actually, brand-new Gay Jeans look and act like any other pair of fine five-pocket denims. But as they get older, they can't help showing their true colors — literally! Through normal washing and wearing, their indigo dye will gradually fade away, revealing fabulously colorful yarn. Can I prevent them from becoming gay by not…

    Blackmagic's trick is to make cameras with great cinematic image quality at a relatively inexpensive price. The tradeoff is gear that is Satan's gift to ergonomics, with low-end audio inputs, terrible battery life and a limited set of features. Enter the Blackmagic Studio Camera, which includes a big 10" monitor, 4 hours on a charge, XLR inputs, and broadcast-friendly features lacking in the earlier models. With the offered grip accessory, one may even hold it with a human hand! The game-changing prices remain: it's just under $2k, with a 4K version for $3k. You'll still need to bring your…

    This is Poveglia Island, a 17-acre island "between Venice and Lido in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy." It was originally used as a dumping ground for dying plague victims. Then in 1922 a mad doctor opened a mental hospital there where he performed lobotomies with hammers and chisels, and eventually killed himself by jumping from the hospital's tower "after claiming he'd been driven mad by ghosts." I dunno, sounds like you might have been mad already, doc. And now it's for sale by the Italian government to help reduce its debts. I say we buy it, bulldoze everything, and build a happy fun…
  • But You've Already Got Rings!: Saturn Forming New Moon

    This is a photo from NASA's Cassini spacecraft of an unusual object orbiting Saturn at the edge of its A ring (not to be confused with its O-ring, which is Uranus). Astronomers are speculating its a new moon forming, which is already about 1/2-mile in diameter. Me? I'm convinced its a spaceship. When it doubt, aliens -- that's my motto. Now grab a tin-foil hat and meet me in my tree-house, we have an invasion to plan for. The moons that orbit Saturn may be increasing by one -- an icy, pint-sized object that astronomers have named "Peggy." The object's gravity seems to have roughed up the…

Fourteen years after the last turdy drop dropped, the 87-year old pitch-drop experiment at the University of Queensland has seen its 9th drop, with 25,000 people tuning into the live webcam feed to watch it happen. Wow, these are truly exciting times we live in. I'm kidding, I'm bored as hell and hoping for a meteor strike. "Where?" Like, right in the face. This comes after the last three drops were all accidentally missed, even as recently as 2000 when a power outage actually made the already-present webcams lose power at just the wrong moment.

Don't make me tell Father Time you've started drinking again. BRUTAL DETAILS: The unfortunate nose-horned viper (Vipera ammodytes) was a young female that stretched about 2 inches longer than the centipede (7.9 vs. 6 inches, or 20.3 vs. 15.4 centimeters), the researchers wrote last month in a brief report published in the journal Ecologica Montenegrina.

    17 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    I use several corded power tools around the yard and garden such as a chain saw, leaf vacuum, hedge trimmer, etc. Many’s the time I would put off a chore using them because I would have to uncoil the 100′ of power cord and probably have to untangle/unkink it before using it. After the job was done, it would take another few minutes to coil up the power cord and try not to tangle it in the process. A couple of types of cord reels I tried didn’t work particularly well. So I bought this weird looking cord winder a few years ago. After installing the wall mount near the power…

    You can get a long bamboo shoe horn at any Asian market for $3, or the previously reviewed one from IKEA, but I have one I really like that is sturdy and long-lasting and expensive. But it is SO worth it. Because of the spring at the bottom it is more maneuverable than regular long shoe horns, ending a lot of frustration. Over the lifetime of the shoe horn, the price is justified in my book. -- Olivia M. Brown21″ Shoe Horn $22 Available from Amazon

But, most importantly, when my wife has to run back in the house to get one last thing, I don’t have to turn the car off so she can use my key. When the 9-volt battery start to go the keypad blinks, so you don’t end up getting locked out with a dead battery. (It will also accept a key). -- Steve HasletSchlage…

    For as long as one can remember perfumers have bottled their concoctions of scent inside ever more elaborate vessels. Some perfume bottles are artful abstractions of fantasy, others literal sculptural representations of the scent container within. American men’s cologne crafters, Fulton & Roark have taken a more modern, minimal, and travel-friendly direction, with a rugged and compact grooming product for men who subscribe to the philosophy of “form shall follow function”. Inside a tough-as-nails all-metal design, Fulton & Roark’s wax-based men’s solid fragrances are super…

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    The retail industry is huge and spans everything from tiny corner shops and boutiques to sprawling supermarkets and ubiquitous high street chains. Retail can be quite difficult o establish yourself in, particularly as there is so much competition from multi-national corporations who can afford to charge less and undercut small sellers. You need a strong business strategy and a certain amount of capital to start a successful retail business, and this is why many new sellers eschew commercial buildings and start their businesses online. However, having a commercial building doesn’t have to…
  • Assembled With One Allen Wrench

    Steven Teo
    15 Apr 2014 | 9:01 am
    Dan Gestoso Rivers‘ Boske bike is a beautiful wood cycle inspired by the design of IKEA‘s flat-pack kit furniture. The bike’s frame is made from curved laminated wood, and the mechanical pieces (such as the front fork and the seat base) are made of aluminum extracted from recycled cans. The whole bike can be easily assembled using one Allen wrench, and parts can be replaced in a snap. Boske is a different approach to bicycle design that plays with tradition and technology at the same time. IKEA-Inspired Wood Boske Bike Can be Assembled With a Single Allen Wrench [Inhabitat]

    Owning a number of different devices can often mean having to regularly transfer data between them to keep them synced, or storing private information in the cloud. Offering a truly connected alternative, Seed is a set of mobile and computer products that use the processing power and data of a single docked smartphone. Designed by South Africa-based computer engineering student Nick Rout, the basis of the system is a smartphone — which nowadays rival the computational power of desktop computers of only a few years ago.

    If you work online or with a lot of gadgets, chances are you want a backpack that can hold everything with an organized system for where things need to go. There are many backpacks out there that are only going for aesthetics, and look like they could only hold a laptop and a fun-size bag of M&Ms. If you are constantly on the move and need all of your gear to come with you, then you want something that looks professional and won’t make you worry about not having enough space for everything.

  • The TowlHub – when multifunctional goes overboard

    Caitlyn
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:30 am
    There are items that can do multiple jobs and make our lives easier. The Swiss Army Knife is a prime example, as it has a variety of tools in one place that don’t necessarily correspond with one another, but come in handy. Sometimes a marketing team gets together and makes something that is multifunctional, but in a way that doesn’t make much sense. One such product is the TowlHub, as it will give you 4 USB ports, a wine stopper, speakers, and a place to put your paper towels in the kitchen. It’s not that these things can’t be together in a single device, more that it…
  • Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set spruces up the kitchen

    Edwin
    18 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    I know that R2-D2, the little astromech droid that could, and did in fact, play an extremely crucial role in the Rebel Alliance striking at the heart of the Galactic Empire before, is also a little bit domesticated. What do I mean by that? Well, it might be able to get out of tight spots against other droids that are far larger and more powerful, but it is also a decent hand in the kitchen. Case in point, this $19.99 Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set. The Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set, as its name suggests, will feature an entire set of measuring cups that resemble parts of R2-D2.

  • Ride the Olympic Ceremony Monowheel in your home

    Edwin

    Want to own a little bit of history? That can be arranged, of course, but you will need a fairly fat bank balance if you want to do so. The Olympics have long been revered to be an event that is held once every four years, where the indomitable human spirit is celebrated, and everyone comes out as winners in their respective disciplines. How about getting hold of the glow-in-the-dark, pedal-powered monowheel that was used during the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics? This is made possible as long as you have $7,000 to part with, where you can then own this piece of history in the…

    Peter Murray
    23 Feb 2014 | 3:31 pm
    When I worked as the computer systems administrator at Medical Diagnostics, a community medical testing lab (from 1988-94), occasionally I would give a tube of blood for control tests. The experience involved the phlebotomists putting a tourniquet on my arm, finding a vein, inserting a needle and releasing the tourniquet so the blood would fill a vacuolated tube. The analysis machines at the time could sometimes do multiple tests on the same sample, but often patients had blood drawn into different tubes for haematology, biochemistry and serology. In 2003, Elizabeth Holmes, at the age of 19…

  • Magic Eraser Works Like Magic

    Laura Moncur
    30 Mar 2014 | 1:03 pm
    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…

It’s like Napoleon Dynamite said, Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills. It’s true, so if you’re thinking that all this time you spend learning how to code is wasted on us girls, it’s NOT. We notice when you use a quick keyboard shortcut instead of the menu. We notice when you can type 70 wpm. We notice and to be honest, it makes us feel a little flushed. PostSecret‘s beneficiary…

    The snow hit my town today and I immediately hated the path in my town. I looked for some new paths to replace them with, but I didn’t like any of them either, so I made my own. First, I made this Gravel Path. It was alright, but it looked a little like it was floating on top of things instead of an actual path. This Earthy Paver is a little better. It just didn’t work with my new Winter Wonderland, so I created this Snowy Paver and I like it MUCH better. Now, I have new paths in my town and I can share them with the world so everyone can enjoy them. If you would like to visit my…

    There are some days when you can do everything right and still have bad luck. It’s true in Animal Crossing just as much as it is in real life, but in Animal Crossing, the fortune teller can actually warn you about your impending bad luck. A visit to Katrina, will start out ominous, so you know right away that it’s a bad luck day. The Lovely Phone, is more ambiguous, however. It may just say something vaguely unfavorable. There is little you can do to turn your luck around. If you have the lucky item, you can make yourself about as lucky as a normal day. If you have your lucky item…

    For a generation obsessed with selfies and taking pictures of any meal set before us, mobile photography has become second nature. We reach for the closest camera — normally our phones — and take photos of everything from sunsets to coffees, posting them to Instagram to see how many likes we can get. Snapwire, a Santa Barbara, Calif.-based startup emerging from beta mode, wants to connect the new photography generation with clients who need their talents and are willing to pay for it. “This new generation of photographers did start out on mobile and they are the ones who…

    This spring is shaping up to be a very contentious season for almost everyone that has a stake in the country’s wireless airwaves. The Federal Communications Commission on Friday released its recommendations for how the upcoming broadcast airwaves incentive auction should be conducted. It will impact mobile carriers, internet companies, TV broadcasters and proponents of free-to-use unlicensed spectrum. The incentive auction will be the first of its kind, requiring an enormously complex process involving a reverse auction, a reconfiguration of the UHF TV band, and a forward auction of newly…

It’s a new month, so it’s time for a new bitcoin creator candidate and MtGox scandal. Up to bat for Satoshi Nakamoto this week is Nick Szabo.

    Distributed computing is nothing new, but like the Big Bang, what was once contained as a singular node of computing has exploded into an ever-expanding number of real and virtual machines traveling farther and farther from any central origin. It’s not a perfect metaphor. There was never just one mainframe or one data center, but the thinking is similar. The number of nodes is increasing and their placement on the network is moving further and further out. Which is why this year at Structure we’re pushing further and further into use cases and an understanding of how one builds computing…

    If you are a happy Sony Xperia Tablet Z owner, we can tell you that it is about to get a lot happier for you this weekend. Sony has just sent out word that an official Xperia Tablet Z Android 4.4 Kitkat update is on the way soon.

  • Dark Souls 2 4K graphics with PS4, Xbox One regret

    Alan Ng
    18 Apr 2014 | 8:12 am
    With Dark Souls 2 PC on the way next week, fans are still disappointed that From Software did not give in to demand and develop Dark Souls 2 on PS4 and Xbox One. It remains PC and last-gen only, with some glorious new Dark Souls 2 4K screenshots unlikely to change the downbeat mood among PS4 and Xbox One owners. At the moment, there is no indication that Dark Souls 2 PS4 and Xbox One will release, although fans obviously believe that it will happen sooner rather than later. Don’t forget that we’ve just had the confirmation of The Last of Us on PS4, so it really is a no brainer…

    We have already discussed how the changes to the 2015 Toyota Camry added up to almost 2,000, but if you were looking for something more imposing, then the new 2014 Ram Power Wagon might be just the thing. We say this because it strikes a brutish pose, one that is often hard to match. 2014 Ram Power Wagon engine – The Power Wagon makes use of a 6.4-liter V8 engine, which pumps out 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, giving you plenty of pulling power. Mated to that impressive powerplant is a 6-speed automatic transmission. To help you get over the rough stuff are massive tires,…

    It does’t seem that long ago when we started to talk about the release of the iPhone 6 with a larger screen, but that was last year, and it was all-to obvious that Apple was going ahead with the 5S. However, we know with a great deal of certainty that the iPhone 6 will be released later this year, and will come with a much-anticipated 4.7-inch screen. Tim Cook had said earlier last year that Apple would not bring a larger iPhone to market until they were ready, which means all app developers were ready for the transition for the extra display real estate.

    GTA V is an amazing game and continues to be played religiously by PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers. At the same time, others are already bored of the game and are instead looking forward to the next big open world game – Watch Dogs. Many gamers are expecting big things from Ubisoft’s main game in 2014 and it looks like the publisher and developer are supremely confident as well. We’ve heard this week that Ubisoft is already confident enough to say that Watch Dogs will go on to be “one of the biggest selling new IPs in recent memory”. This is a bold statement at this…

  • Could Using Your Phone Damage Your Eyes?

    Paul
    16 Apr 2014 | 2:13 am
    A new report suggests that using a smartphone for too long could be damaging to your eyes. The suggestion comes following a survey of around 2,000 phone users, which was carried out by a group of independent opticians. The survey results revealed that the average smartphone user looks at the screen for almost 7 hours each day and feels anxious when they don’t have their phone to hand.  Users under the age of 25 check their phone an average of 32 times a day. The opticians behind the survey state that this level of use could increase the risk of the users’ eyes being damaged over time.

It won’t run complex video-editing programs or graphics-intensive games.

  • Budget "Vintage" Microphone In Classic Retro Red

    My studio is dotted with some classic microphones. The Shure "Elvis" mic, an old Calrad mic that looks like a cold capsule, and more. I've been lucky to have most of my treasures while thrifting or hitting garage sales, because genuinely vintage mics often come at a price.Not only are many old mics cool to look at, but they offer a signature sound that's hard to get any other way. Then again, some don't actually sound all that great after all these years, but a handsome mic will always find a home on someone's shelf. Pyle is an audio gear company known for budget friendly microphones, cables,…

    A few years ago, we introduced you to an amazing fan-made film; a shot-by-shot recreation of Raiders of the Lost Ark. These boys spent every summer from '82-'88 slavishly recreating Raiders on their VHS camcorder. This is one of the most notorious and beloved fan films of all time. What they were able to pull off in their parent's basement with no budget is amazing enough to forget that our protagonists sure seem to bounce around in age as the film progresses. They've even been fortunate enough to screen the film for Lucas & Speilberg, have a book written about them, and are even seeing…

There are the slings and arrows each of us face in trying to put together our ultimate music collection, but the problem that we all face is where to stow all of those damned records. They're large (okay... not along the Z axis), they're heavy, and you need to store them in a way that you can still read the spines.Let's assume that you're beyond the ol' cinder bricks and glass blocks stage of storage solutions. You can of course build something…

Back in the 80s, I fell in love with the game. I wasn't any good at it (and I'm still not, despite having the full-size cabinet of Pac-man Plus), but I fell in love with the single-minded design of the game.

  • How to Fix Pink Screen of Annoyance on Google Chrome

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:43 pm
    For the first time in the better part of a year (and the first time since I made the jump to Windows 8.1) I loaded up Google Chrome to have a play with a few extensions. To my annoyance the screen was a horrible shade of pink, which made the tab headings almost illegible. A search for the cause revealed that it was most likely a stereoscopic 3D setting – which was not applicable to my video card. At any rate, the purported solutions involved turning off functions of the video card that should not need to be switched off. A stop-gap perhaps, but not a fix. I thought there would have to…

    Enter the Bugatti Noun, it has the distinction of being the world’s most over-engineered (and most expensive?) piece of consumer toasting technology. To be fair to the Noun, it has some pretty cool features – first of all, it uses far infrared radiation to toast your food, which will most often be bread) at temperatures as high as 300ºC (572ºF) to toasty perfection in as little as 80 seconds. What’s more, you can see it all happening, thanks to Bugatti’s use of “a special transparent glass ceramic material with an ultra-high resistance semiconductor.” The…

    Will the iPhone 6 come in two sizes? The rumor mill and some leaked presentation slides seem to suggest that Apple is cooking up something bigger than 4.5 inches. It seems more likely than ever that the iPhone 6 will have a >5-inch variant. All but the most die-hard of Apple fanbois will probably have experienced Galaxy envy on a few occasions. While 4.5-inches might be fine for phone duties, casual gaming and some light browsing, it is too limiting to do much else. An extra inch of screen would change pretty much everything. Imagine not having to flip the screen to landscape mode to read a…

    If you have hardwood floors and have a shoes-off policy in your home, then most of the time you can get away with dry mopping your floors instead of vacuuming. It is light, easy work, and it doesn’t take all that long – but it is a chore of the type that can easily be passed on to a robot slave. The robot in this case is called Mofa, it will quietly scoot around your floors with a microfiber mop, leaving cleanliness in its wake. Given that it is mop, not a vacuum cleaner, you are going to need to brush the dust and assorted detritus off it every once in a while – but it…

So that’s how we begin to learn a programming language used to build computer applications. Our world of embedded systems is a little different. We create software to control hardware.

    There’s a lot at stake for Microsoft Windows Phone, a mobile operating system that’s still playing catch-up with the two big boys - iOS 7 andAndroid 4.4 KitKat. Currently at third place in the smartphone wars, Windows Phone is pulling out all the stops to level the playing field. When you’re not at the top, you can only go higher, right? Judging from the numerous leaks detailing its update, Microsoft is adopting a lot of ideas from its competitors. A notifications centre and a digital personal assistant that learns and adapts to your commands are just a few examples. Here’s what we…

    Here’s one ball you won’t have trouble playing keepy-uppy with – because it can fly. HoverBall’s unusual talent comes courtesy of a 90mm-wide quadcopter inside, which enables it to fly for up to five minutes at a time. Developed by the University of Tokyo’s Jen Rekimoto, the ball is currently controlled remotely, but in the future could be programmed to follow a particular path or possibly even react contextually to its surroundings. The idea behind it, meanwhile, is to “democratise” ball-based sports by giving weaker players an advantage. It does need to be toughened up though:…

Praised for its solid more-metal-than-ever build and blazing-fast innards, the One M8 had some stiff competition in the LG G2 but managed to leave the ring as a worthy winner. With an innovative dual-camera setup for post-shot refocusing and G2-like screen-tap wake functionality, HTC has blended software smarts, speed and top-notch build quality to earn its champion stripes.

One of very few Androids that could rival the iPhone in the looks department while also doing everything else we expect of a flagship phone, it was a shoo-in for our 2013 Smartphone of the Year Award. And then, at the last minute, the LG G2 arrived and stole its thunder. And who could’ve seen that coming?

    A whopping 28 percent of morning-after pills in Peru are fake. A study published today in PLOS ONE relates how some emergency contraceptives contain inadequate amounts of active ingredients that, in many cases, aren't being released quickly enough into the body to be considered effective. This, the researchers say, means that nearly one third of the pills — pills that are sold by licensed pharmacists — offer no protection against unwanted pregnancy. Continue reading…

One on the 25th December and then another on their Orthodox calendar, which to us is on 7th January. Although our Western friend America doesn’t celebrate Boxing Day…

  • Netflix Original: Sizzling Bacon

    Wes
    1 Apr 2014 | 12:54 am
     Sizzling Bacon a Netflix Original With this Netflix Original, you might think you’re getting something good.  But don’t be fooled by the sexy imagery or tantalizing, golden-brown strips of luscious pork belly. In this 20 minute production of Sizzling Bacon, Netflix brings you a frying pan with two strips.  I was honestly disappointed, expecting that maybe they might go all out, in the way that Google tends to do. April Fools Day joke or not, I think I take my bacon a little more seriously, does that make me a food snob (probably)? I was tantalized at first. But you never can…
  • Google Plus Profile Pages get a view count

     Google Plus Profile view count It might seem like another April Fools jokes, but at least for now it seems legitimate. Google is rolling out a small, new feature on all Google Plus profile pages.  The total number of times your profile has been viewed, is showed next to your total followers. I did not realize that I was so popular until today.  My first guess was that it had to do with some spam factor, or that Google might have made a mistake, but then I checked Mike Elgan’s profile and by comparison I’m still small potatoes.   But of course my curiosity led me to other…
  • Oculus VR Sells out to Facebook

    Wes
    28 Mar 2014 | 3:22 pm
    I had high hopes for Oculus VR, they’ve made some really impressive advancements.  But I guess I can’t blame them for needing more money and $2 Billion is more money.  I just wish it hadn’t been a sell out to Facebook of all companies.  What is Facebook going to do with a Virtual Reality company? It’s not obvious to me what Facebook would do with a VR company, but I am sure that they have some ideas.  $2 Billion worth of ideas, at least I hope it’s at least that much.  It’s just that to me the two are incongruous. Facebook is Social Media, Oculus VR is…
  • Bus Stop Ad is ingenious (w/ Video)

    Although this sort of thing, I can’t imagine Pepsi actually leaving up at a bus stop ad like this for more than the span of the time it took to capture people’s reactions, it’s still quite ingenious. In order to capture the attention of the public for Pepsi Maxx, they created an impressive video capture system and inserted various impossible activities as an overlay to the capture.  But the video capture is taking scenes from real-life on the other side of the bus stop wall.  If you were to come at the wall from the side of the screen it would appear that it was just a…
  • 128GB microSD for Android

    Holy Smokes, our prayers have been answered.  SanDisk revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain that it has a 128GB microSD made specifically for Android.  This card meets the microSDXC standard not merely the microSDHC standard. You’ve probably already upgraded your Galaxy Note 3 to the 64GB model in expectation of purchasing an additional 64GB microSD card so that you could at least meet the level of the highest end iPhone5.  But with this new card you will be able to exceed it by 50%. It will certainly be interesting to see 128GB of storage on-board in the near future…

  • Iron, Man Ironing Board Cover

    18 Apr 2014 | 11:39 am
    One thing I've never owned is an iron. Not that I'm complaining or consider myself deprived. Owning an iron would probably just make me feel guilty about owning an iron and never using it. I mean, my clothes look great straight out of the clean laundry basket they've been sitting in for 2 weeks. What do we need to bring electricity and heat into the equation for? Plus, as indicated by this Ironing Man ironing board cover, it clearly takes some honed skills and many hours to iron a shirt. Step-by-step instructions complete with diagrams and "Place collar here"-type demarcations? Psshh. I'd…
  • Pykmax Ergonomic Guitar Pick

    18 Apr 2014 | 9:58 am
    They call it a high performance guitar pick, which in my mind means that the Pykmax should do the guitar strumming for me. Like a player piano, but completely inconspicuously so that the ladies I'm trying to impress think it really is me busting out "More Than Words" or "Wild Horses" or some other schmaltz that could possibly get me laid. But really, the Pykmax gets its high performance designation from its ergonomics. Said to fit perfectly in a player's hand, the pick reduces the amount of "gripping" required to play, which in turn increases hand maneuverability and control. The Pykmax is…

    What? R2-D2 measuring cups?! Dude. If R2-D2 can make me some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies in honor of the fact that I want some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, my whiny ex-girlfriend will officially be correct in her complaints that I always liked R2-D2 more than I liked her. Assembled, the R2-D2 portioning companion will sit faithfully on your kitchen counter, quietly overseeing your grilling of steak and frying of bacon. But when it's time to get serious about sifting together accurate quantities of flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, everyone's favorite droid will spring…
  • Good Grips Mango Splitter

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:49 pm
    OXO says, "There's nothing as luscious as a ripe mango." OXO obviously has never seen Kate Upton's rack. Or Kelly Brook's. Or Christina Hendricks'. However, I do agree that mangoes are in the luscious family. The luscious yet incredibly hard to penetrate without making a big mess of things family. (So, yeah, still similar to the girls.) Peeling? No problem. But pitting without mango mangling, squashing, or slippage? A precarious task to say the least. OXO's Good Grips mango splitter says it will separate the flesh from the fruit's wonky, oblong pit precisely and mess-free every time. Its…
  • Military-Style Crash Cot

    A folding metal cot covered in heavy-duty polyester fabric. You wanna crash at my place, that's what you're getting. It's pretty comfortable though. Body-contouring. And at 77" x 25", with legs reinforced with steel pipe inserts, as long and strong as the best of them. I know because I actually sleep on the cot myself when I've had too many White Russians and sense an 80% or better probability that I'm going to wake up with everything in my mouth's vicinity covered in upchucked vodka and dairy. That polyester cover? Fully washable and mildew-resistant. Earth Products' military-style cot for…
