Electronic Putting Trainer

by Edwin

Golf is a game where you often fight against yourself first before checking out your score with others. After all, there is nothing quite as satisfying as getting all those shots in with one nice, clean whack each time, but there are off days for some of us where nothing seems to go wrong even after following hundreds of dollars’ worth of advice from books and DVDs. Well, just like …

Snow Chopper made from spare parts

I love seeing DIY gadgets like these. Every time I see one, such as the Star Trek phaser, I can’t help but think: “how does one get the time to build these things?” I mean, I can barely keep up with my writing deadlines. Therefore, I will give my full congratulations to Bob Sawicki and Toby Weisser for using their weeknights and Sundays to build the snow chopper that you …

Believe it or not, I’m biking on air, and it’s all thanks to the Kolelinia!

Hopefully you sang the title of this posting to the theme of the classic show The Greatest American Hero. If you don’t know the theme, watch a few episodes on Hulu, and then realize that “flying away on a wing and a prayer” is possible with the Kolelinia. It is the Kolelinia that makes it possible for this man in the picture to bike on a tightrope. A Kolelinia user …

Last night, at the first night of CES, Systemax, CA, and Intel teamed up to sponsor the 13th Annual Build Your Own PC Race for Charity. It was held at the Latour Ballroom at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas (right next to CES Showstoppers), and it was actually more spectacular than I ever thought it would be. When I got there, it was nothing but food and subtle party …

Golf Ball Launcher fires Titleists

by Mark R

I’m not the type who is really into golfing. Heck, I’ve never even hit a ball on the driving range. I can imagine that it must be difficult to hit a tiny ball on the ground with a small pole with a wedge on the end of it. I’m sure I would get frustrated with it really fast, and I would probably want to shoot something. (Something not alive, just …

MATTRACKS: Scooter through the Snow

by Mark R

If you can’t wait until summer to try the Chariot Skates, then you may might want to see this product that is made for the winter snow. The MATTRACK can best be described as a scooter, but with a tank tread instead of wheels so it will go through the snow. It has a handle on it so it can steer, and the frame is mounted on a tread in …

Chariot Skates combine both biking and skating

by Mark R

I can see why they call these Chariot skates. If this guy in the photo were to squat down, he would look like a prop from a modern day Ben-Hur. That, or someone in a wheelchair without a seat. As it is, the Chariot Skates are designed to hold your legs as strongly as a foot inside of a skiboot. As you can see, it sort of combines a bicycle …

Beriscope: See underwater, from land!

Beriscope-by-Jaewon-Choi-thumb-550x413-30241

Some of you might remember the other day when we reported on the Coolerbot, a way of exploring the outdoor wildlife from remote control while indoors. The Beriscope is a way of looking at undersea life from remote control. Here’s how it works: The ball shaped thing on the left side of the device can separate from it, but is still tethered to it with some cable. The user throws …
