I’ve been riding bicycles for years, doing all of the hard work of pedaling all this time. It makes for great exercise, but it’s not necessarily the most efficient way to commute. Electric bikes (or “eBikes”) offer power assistance to make your ride faster and less exhausting.
Focal might not be a brand that most of you are familiar with, but they should be. The French audio company is making some downright excellent headphones, ranging from the ultra high-end Utopia open-back headphones to their more accessible Listen over-the-ear headphones.
Every generation’s kids seem to know much more about technology than the prior generation. I grew up as part of the first wave of kids to use desktop computers, and now the little ones are using smartphones and tablets like they were born with them as appendages.
A few years back, a company called ROLI introduced the Seaboard, an amazing keyboard which allows musicians to add new forms of expression to their playing by introducing pressure sensitivity along the length and ends of its keys.
Google is always looking for new technical talent. So teaching kids how to code makes sense. That is why the company announced that they’d teamed with Wonder Woman to inspire teen girls to learn coding. Made with Code is a Google initiative that encourages teen girls to pursue coding, and has released a new Wonder Woman-themed coding project.
Players learn basic coding and logic skills by controlling three different scenes from the Wonder Woman film.
V-MODA has been a leader in the headphone space for a while now, making some excellent gear for your listening pleasure. Now, for the first time, V-MODA is making a Bluetooth speaker, with the aim of providing the same kind of premium build, design, and sound quality found in their headphones.
I’ve used a number of computer mice over the years, from the rudimentary upside-down trackball types of days gone by, to high-tech wireless laser and multitouch mice. They each have had their time in the sun at my desk, but it’s time to say goodbye to all of them now that I’ve found the SteelSeries Rival 700.
We’ve all been there at some point. You need to measure something and you stand there counting the little marks on your tape measure trying to figure out if its millimeters or centimeters or inches that you need.
There was a time when a mousepad was just a basic thing, designed to keep your mouse gliding smoothly across your desktop. But the SteelSeries QcK Prism goes far beyond this utility, functioning not only as an excellent surface for precision mousing, but as a cool decorative accessory for your gaming surface.
Microsoft wants to make their Cortana personal assistant a serious Alexa competitor, obviously, so they should take note of this what Jarem Archer aka untitled network has done here, with the creation of a Halo-inspired holographic Cortana appliance.
He got the idea by imagining what Microsoft’s version of Alexa or Google Home would be like if they designed it to look like the holographic AI sidekick from Halo.
Master & Dynamic has been admired by many others in the tech community for their high quality headphones. I’ve not spent much time with them other than a brief listen, so when I was able to get my hands on a pair of their latest headphones, I definitely was looking forward to giving them a more in-depth evaluation.
The New York based premium headphone maker recently teamed up with the folks at German camera brand Leica to create a series of headphones inspired by their legendary Noctilux lens, a renowned f/0.95
Every time V-MODA comes out with a new pair of headphones, I get excited to test them out. That’s because every single pair I’ve ever tested sound great, and lasts and lasts. I’ve yet to be disappointed in their products.
When it comes to headphones, I am particular, but not necessarily about the audio quality. I’m not an audiophile, but I’m very critical about the way they fit. Most over-the-ear headphones that I’ve used have cushions too small to fit over my ears and they end up sitting on my ears.
Being a professional drone photographer sounds like a pretty sweet gig, though it’s not something a whole lot of people get to make a living at. Thanks to my friends at Old Spice, I recently had the opportunity to sit down and speak with Chase Guttman, who at the ripe young age of 20, has already carved out a career for himself as one of the world’s best aerial photographers.
Chase’s unusual, but awesome career choice is one that 5 years ago wasn’t even a possibility, but is emblematic of the ability for today’s generations to carve out their own path in ways that I certainly couldn’t have when I first graduated from college.
Sometimes, I feel a little weird reviewing crowdfunded items that have yet to go into production. On one hand, it’s good exposure for the projects, but on the other, the products are usually prototypes and not ready for prime time.
