Spinpod
Photography gives you the ability to show other people how you see the world. It can literally be anything you want it to be (though I think we’re all ok with not seeing a constant stream of selfies and food). Seeing that smartphones have pretty decent cameras now, it comes as no surprise that there are a myriad of accessories that you can buy to create something that is more than just a picture that was snapped on the go.

The Dart won’t let chunky laptop chargers weigh you down

by Caitlyn - on April 16, 2014

Dart
New laptops seem to be coming out every week. They’re thinner, sleeker, and say they can do more than any other version out there. The biggest drawback with these things is having to use a charging cable that is attached to a big block of an adapter. They’re a nuisance to wrap after unplugging, so they often end up a tangled mess that only adds weight to your bag.

Brinno Digital Peephole Viewer – Knock, Knock?

I’ve taught my daughter the same thing we all learned as kids, NEVER open the door, unless you’re absolutely sure who it is on the other side. Yes, we have little peepholes on our hotel room doors and at our homes… but now even they are a risk. Reverse peephole viewers allow those so inclined, to look right into your private space, and even photograph you without your knowledge. I’m not liking that.

Quoridor Pocket Maze-Forming Travel Game helps you exercise your brain on the move

by Edwin - on April 16, 2014

quoridorI know that we are a society that is obsessed with mobile devices these days, and Generation Z grew up in a digital environment, so much so that anything analog is looked upon in disdain, as they wonder how we, their parents, were able to live with knobs, dials, and the idea of sending snail mail to one another across time. Still, there are some things that digital cannot beat – such as reading a newspaper or a book which do not require any batteries, not to mention the fact that newspaper can be used for many other functions once you’re done reading it. Well, games on mobile devices have exploded too, but it might be good if one enjoys something old school while on the move, such as the $19.99 Quoridor Pocket Maze-Forming Travel Game.

The Quoridor Pocket Maze-Forming Travel Game will basically require you to get from one side of the maze to the other, without bumping into any of the walls, of course. It is somewhat like the Light Cycles game in Tron, where this easily portable travel game will sport integrated drawers in the board itself so that you can stash away all of the parts without having a piece go missing by accident. The average play time is 15 minutes, and best of all is, there is no need for batteries to recharge since it doesn’t use any in the first place!

Best Waffle Maker quells those hunger pangs

by Edwin - on April 16, 2014

wafflemakerHammacher has certified yet another device and deemed it to be fit enough to carry the “The Best” prefix, and this time around it would be the $249.95 Best Waffle Maker. What makes this particular home appliance deserve such a title, and why does it cost so much? As you know how the saying goes – pay peanuts and you end up with monkeys. The Best Waffle Maker is no monkey business, this I can assure you, as it has consistently produced perfectly cooked waffles and was easy to use. This chef’s-grade appliance sports dual grid surfaces within its rotating clamshell, allowing one to bake a couple of 7.5″ diameter Belgian waffles simultaneously.

With the Best Waffle Maker, you will be able to keep the hunger pangs of your family at bay, and in tests, both waffles came out evenly baked. This translates to a golden and crispy texture on the outside, and yet remaining nice and moist right down in the middle, all without having to carry any burnt or raw spots that are found in the waffles which were made using lesser models. Apart from that, the nonstick plates also make it a snap to remove cooked waffles, while its handles remained cool to the touch so that you do not end up burning yourself by accident. The Best Waffle Maker would let you know when it is preheating, ready for batter, and when the waffles are ready.

Pentagon To Recycle Old Drones As Wi-Fi Hotspots

by Edwin - on April 16, 2014

pentagon-drone-wifiThe Pentagon has plans to breath new life into old drones, and they will do so by transforming these once loyal servants into Wi-Fi hotspots. Of course, using drones as a Wi-Fi hotspot is not exactly the newest idea on the block, and neither does it elicit an “Eureka!” moment, but it is interesting to see how this might change the face of battle in a war. Normally, the equipment that is required for long-range high-bandwidth Wi-Fi is more often than not unavailable to troops in the field. With some modifications made, engineers do hope that this will change, offering airborne Wi-Fi hotspots which allows isolated troops to have a decent data connection.
