Key.Me Stores Your House Keys On Your iPhone


At some point in our lives, we will be locked out of the house. It’s just a fact of life. Fortunately, though, it doesn’t have to be one we deal with for long. Thanks to a new app, Key.Me, we can keep our house keys on us at all times…...


Meet ‘Reason’, The Next 3D-Printed Metal Handgun


3D printing is a fascinating technology, but it does have larger implications than you might at first think.

Zubits Turn Any Shoe Into A Slip-On


The shoelace is a technology we’re all comfortable with, and nobody seriously thinks it should be replaced. But when it comes to certain applications, like running, they’re not exactly optimal. Any knot designed to be untied by hand is eventually just going to unravel by itself, and no one wants...


Carvey Lets You Carve Anything Out Of Pretty Much Anything


CNC mills are truly awesome devices, but they’re also enormous and generally insanely expensive. There’s a reason; they’re very precise motion tools that follow instructions exactly, and those aren’t generally cheap. Nor, for that matter, do they generally fit on a desktop.

HelSTAR Puts A Brake Light On The Back Of A Cyclist’s Head
