    MoDe:Flex is The New Smart Bike From Ford (Photos)

    New from Ford, it’s the latest part (and the third smart bicycle) of their Smart Mobility project, the confusingly named MoDe:Flex. This smart bike was engineered with cycling enthusiasts in mind, but it comes equipped with an array of smart technology features that would probably make a seasoned cyclist gasp. That includes the MoDe:Flex’s pothole […]

    Cannabis Killer Candle: Neutralize the Scent of Fun

    Let’s be honest here: If you smoke enough weed in your house or apartment for the smell of it to permeate the air, there probably aren’t too many people you’d invite over that don’t already know about your habit. But that doesn’t mean you want your apartment to smell like fresh chronic, which is why […]

    People just aren’t buying cameras like they used to, obviously because of the preponderance of smartphone cameras in the marketplace making it a redundant purchase for most people with a simple passing interest in photography.

    Canary: An Entire Home Security System in One Device

    Growing up, my parents never had a security system, and as an adult I have never had one.

You don’t […]

    Ad blockers are great for users, but in the long run they may be too potent a cure for the illness they’re treating, since meager ad revenue is what keeps a lot of sites open for business and producing quality content.

    Living in the CGI era has its benefits, especially if you enjoy watching hordes of robots, dinosaurs, or (one day) robot dinosaurs at your local movie theater. But one downside to this digital utopia is that you really can’t trust a professionally-produced video that purports to show something incredible, especially when it’s as shrouded in […]

    If your record player is lacking a significantly visual component, or if you don’t have a record player because you’re worried you’ll get bored staring at it all the time, the Floating Record Vertical Turntable might be exactly what you’ve been looking for – and what you will be looking at for the foreseeable future.

    Pepper the $1600 Emotional Robot Sells Out in One Minute (Video)

    Do you want a robot friend with emotions? If not, you might be in a minority, at least if the crackerjack sales performance of Pepper is any indication. Pepper is an interactive robotic humanoid that can recognize human facial expressions, as well as engage with its own internal system of artificial “emotions.” And after the […]
