    Sony RX100 IV Camera Fits in Your Pocket

    The phrase “camera that fits in your pocket” probably doesn’t have as much cache as it once had in the pre-smartphone era, but it’s nevertheless an impressive engineering feat when the camera in question is an advanced, professional-grade device. That’s the case with the new Sony RX100 IV, a point-and-shoot camera that can go anywhere you […]

  • Casio G-Shock G-Steel: Practically Indestructible

    Casio G-Shock G-Steel: Practically Indestructible

    The Casio G-Shock line of digital watches is already known for its rugged durability – that’s where the name “G-Shock” comes from in the first place, as the watches were developed to withstand shocks that could incapacitate lesser timepieces. But the brand has been experimenting with even more sturdily designed pieces, and the latest is […]

    Aumeo Tailored Audio Device (Video)

    Hearing is probably one of the most mysterious of the five senses, as evidenced by the fact that you’re always having to turn up and down your volume in order to suit whatever mood your ears are in at that moment. Now there’s a new product that seeks to tailor your audio experiences to your […]

  • Dyson CSYS Task Light Can Last 37 Years

    Dyson CSYS Task Light Can Last 37 Years

    This is probably just me, but I get kind of freaked out when I think about new light bulbs that can last a really long time, just because it’s weird to imagine buying a light bulb now and not having to change it until you’re 15 years older. But the people at Dyson have already […]

    Travler Camera Case for GoPro From Travler Leather

    We all know that GoPro cameras are great for capturing previously impossible footage from the most personal and (literally) in-your-face perspectives imaginable, but style just doesn’t have a high premium in the design of these cameras.

    Free: App Lets Everyone Know Whether You’re Free

    If your social calendar is crowded enough that you get tired of telling everybody in your life whether or not you’re available at a given time, chances are you don’t find yourself with a wide open night very often.

    ‘Over/Under': Undersea Photo Series by Matty Smith (Pics)

    It’s often said that we know more about outer space than we do our own oceans. I don’t know if that’s technically accurate or not, but I definitely believe that it could be true after taking a look at Over/Under, a new series of underwater (and above-water) photographs from Australian photographer Matty Smith. The premise […]

    Sprite: “Portable and Rugged” Drone by Ascent AeroSystems

    You don’t have to focus on it for long to notice that Sprite is a completely different kind of drone. It’s sleek and minimalist, staying aloft without the aid of the multiple propellers and outcroppings that define most drones today, outfitted instead with a simple stacked dual-propeller system that makes it a triumph of portability. Sprite was also designed […]

    No one really knows for sure what the screens of the future are going to look like, thanks to a couple of different technologies jockeying for position to be the dominant display tech of the next decade.

    Woodsnap: Tattoo Your Photos Onto Wood (Photos)

    We take more photos than we ever have now, but that also means that we spend less time really looking at and appreciating each one. So if you take a particularly good photograph, you might want to look into ways of making it seem more permanent or significant – in which case, Woodsnap is a new service […]
