    1-Hour Photo: An App for the Patient

    It wasn’t that long ago when places like CVS or Walgreens would advertise “One-Hour Photo” development, the implication being that an hour was no time at all to wait for a completed roll of photographs. A lot has changed since then, though, and now people are used to seeing and sharing photos pretty much instantly. […]

    The next generation of clocks might look like something from another planet to the people who used to design grandfather clocks and other similar timepieces years ago, but good work is still being done in the field.

    Back Up Your Cell Signal With GoTenna (Video)

    Losing your cell signal can range from annoying to straight-up disastrous, depending on the situation.

    Facebook Unveils Mentions, The App for Celebrities

    Here’s a problem you probably can’t relate to: All you want to do when you go on Facebook is to share your latest music video or movie trailer, but you don’t want to have to wade through a bunch of stupid stuff from your so-called “friends” while you do it. And you also want to […]

    Element Range Wallets by Bellroy

    Chances are, even if the wallet that’s sitting in your pocket right now and “protecting” all of your money and credit cards is a high-quality and expensive one, it’s still not going to hold up to very much extreme weather. Unless it’s the new Element Range from Bellroy, that is. The Bellroy Element Range wallets […]

    N.HOOLYWOOD x Casio G-Shock DW-5600NH-1ER

    Yet another Casio G-Shock collaboration has been unveiled by the digital watch brand, this one with N.HOOLYWOOD, a Japanese fashion label. It’s a special edition of the G-Shock DW-5600, specifically designated as the DW5600-NH-1ER.

    Slingbox M1: Watch Your DVR Anywhere

    The DVR is probably one of the coolest innovations of the 21st century, but most of them still carry one big limitation: You can only watch it at home. There are lots of solutions to this, including services like HBO Go, but Slingbox was there first. And now Sling has come out with the new […]

  • Super-M: Portable Speakers That Are Truly Portable

    Super-M: Portable Speakers That Are Truly Portable

    The term “portable speakers” tends to be a relative one, as a portable speaker isn’t very portable compared to a smartphone or iPod. But NudeAudio is working on securing funding for a portable speaker that really is portable – and it’s called the Super-M. The Super-M is a high quality Bluetooth speaker with a minimalist […]

    The Mega Hammock: Massive Relaxation

    By far the biggest limitation in most hammocks is size. You’re often lucky if you can fit yourself into one, and putting two people in a hammock is basically just asking for serious trouble. But the Mega Hammock puts that issue to rest through direct action: It’s huge, and can accommodate at least three people […]
