    Navdy: Portable Head-Up Display for Your Car (Video)

    The hot trend for future automobiles is a head-up display that gives you data laid over your windshield, so you can (theoretically) receive information without taking your eyes off the road.

    Z.A.P.S.Gear Survival Grenade

    “Survival grenade” might sound like a weird oxymoron, but the Survival Grenade from Z.A.P.S.Gear doesn’t actually explode or send shrapnel flying out in all directions.

    Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite Phone Never Needs Charging

    Justlooking at it, the new Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite phone actually doesn’t seem particularly impressive. Despite its prestigious brand name, it appears to be a garden-variety phone from a previous, pre-smartphone era, albeit a particularly handsome one.

    Typically, with watercraft, you tend to sacrifice performance for portability (or vice-versa). For instance, an inflatable raft you can stuff in your backpack probably isn’t going to break any surface speed records, and a high-speed motorboat is going to need some serious space in order to store it. But Tiwal has come out with the […]
