The Recon 6 Combines A Multitool And A Watch

If you're like me, you like being prepared. I go around with several tools on my keychain, mostly because while I don't need wire strippers or a wrench every day, I need them just often enough to keep them on me. But some peopl...

Lavazza Is Going To Fire An Espresso Machine Into Space

If anybody could use a cup of good, strong coffee, it's an astronaut. But it's incredibly hard to get a cup of good coffee in space. Fortunately for the pioneers of the final frontier, Lavazza will be sending up an espresso mac...

Sharp’s Free-Form Display Lets Your TV Be Any Shape

When we say "television," you probably think of a large rectangular solid of some sort. And that's pretty normal. While TVs have gotten thinner and broader over the last few decades, they've largely stayed rectangular. Sharp's ...

The Flying Rider Does Away With The Bike Seat Completely

Bike seats are arguably one of the biggest problems with riding a bike. They hammer your groin, they often go unused when you're pedaling hard, and they just don't offer a lot of leverage. Hence, an inventor has decided that th...

Garmin’s Viago App Packs A Lot Of Functionality Into One Place

Garmin was once the king of the GPS systems, but they've seen their user base steadily eroded by phone mapping systems that, while not as full-featured, are "good enough" for their users. So if you can't beat 'em, join 'em; Gar...

The Titan Zeus: A 370-Inch TV That Redefines “Overkill”

You know, there has to come a point where size has to stop mattering. It just does. For example, I'm an apartment dweller, and the idea that I'm going to buy a 70" TV at any point in my life just seems vaguely absurd. So, I'm n...

The DV8 Interchangeable Golf Club Might Finally Get You To Play Golf

Golf is a lot of fun to play, provided you're with people who are just as bad at it as you are. But it's an expensive hobby to have, not just in time but also in space. Fortunately for the apartment dweller who might enjoy a ho...

Huawei’s Ascend Mate 2 Is Now Available… Unlocked, For Cheap

I admit, I'm skeptical of phablets still to some degree. True, I technically own one: A Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is my regular go-to phone. And I do like the large screen, but for the cost, I can understand the leeriness of some p...

Soon, Your Fridge Will Run On Magnets

The basic refrigerator hasn't changed very much in the last fifty years. It's still essentially a cabinet with a lot of pipes and hoses in the walls, most of which are full of toxic chemicals that aren't great for the environme...
