When you’re on the go and you want to watch videos, most of us do it on the small screen of our smartphones or at best a tablet. What if you could watch your favorite content on a massive screen no matter where you are?
These days, soundbars are all the rage when it comes to home theater sound systems. But if you go with one of those slimline systems, you’ll almost certainly be sacrificing sound quality and channel separation. If you want the most wide-open and theater-accurate sound system, you have to go with individual satellite speakers.
When you think of desktop speakers, they’re usually big boxy things with a couple of round drivers or maybe a horn tweeter. But the guys at VETR have designed something very different – flat speakers which use sheets of carbon fiber to help disperse their audio.
I’ve seen some pretty amazing case mods over the years, but this life-size Iron Man PC might just be the most incredible PC build yet. Pro system builder Jengki Wmp of World Media Plus created this life-size sculpture of Iron Man in his Mk.
If you’ve ever strapped on a proper virtual reality headset like an Oculus Rift or an HTC Vive, you know how truly immersive today’s VR experiences can be. But there are still some things that break the illusion, like not being able to truly walk around, and the way things FEEL versus the way things LOOK.
Robots can do some pretty amazing things these days. Sure, there are concerns about humans losing their jobs to automation, but you have to remember that there are lots of high-paying jobs created for engineers and roboticists to design, build and program the robots themselves, and many of the jobs robots take on are laborious tasks that can be harmful or stressful to humans anyhow.
Basic drones are a dime a dozen these days, turning up everywhere from Walmart to your local 7-Eleven. But most of them share a few drawbacks – they’re cumbersome to carry around, easy to damage, and their spinning propellers can be a hazard to anyone who goes near them.
The current generation iPad Mini 4 is a great tablet if you want something compact but capable of playing media, checking emails, surfing the web, and playing games. But it’s also ridiculously expensive for what it is – selling for $399 or more.

Back when I was a kid, a 27-inch TV was considered HUGE. Boy, have things changed. These days, anything less than 55 inches is considered a “small” TV screen. I’ve got a 70-inch display in my living room now, and that’s big enough for me, but for some people bigger is always better.
When I was in school, the best calculator you could get would be one of those crazy expensive HP-10C’s which offered some very fancy math abilities that I never fully understood, but the smartest students were using them, so they must have been good.

I’ve been gradually making my way through the entire lineup of headphones from audio equipment maker Focal, and so far, I’ve been quite impressed with the audio quality of their entire series – from their value priced Spark in-ear headphones, up to their ultra-premium Utopia open-back model.
While most levitation is achieved with magnets, it’s also possible to suspend small objects in air using sound waves. Thanks to engineer Asier Marzo, you can even create your own acoustic levitator, which can float lightweight objects like water droplets, styrofoam beads, and even insects.
The system uses a 3D printed rig that holds two opposing grids filled with 36 tiny ultrasonic transducers each.
The ’80s and ’90s brought us some of the most watched and funniest sitcoms of all time. After producers like Norman Lear broke ground in the ’70s, characters could be more realistic, with human flaws, and loads of snark and sarcasm.
