Have you seen enough science fiction movies to imagine mega-cities of the future deliver a sensory overload, especially in the visuals department? Holographic projections could be the next big thing, but we are far from such implementation in real-life at the moment, although devices like the Hydrogen One holographic media machine are certainly a step in the right direction. RED has just announced that AT&T and Verizon in the United States, and Claro and Telcel in Latin America, will carry the extremely portable Hydrogen One holographic media machine for those who are interested.

Summer’s more or less here, so it makes perfect sense for you to head out to the great outdoors and enjoy all that nature and creation are able to offer. Smell in the cool, fresh air, take in the sights of a majestic sunrise or a stunning sunset, and pitch your tent while watching the stars underneath the canvas of the night sky with a nice glass of hot chocolate in one hand while you pop in roasted marshmallows cooked by a warm fire with the other. Of course, camping is not for everybody, but if you happen to love camping, then one of the essential items that should not go past your grasp would be the Coleman 360° Sound and Light lantern. Doing more than just party grills, this is the perfect lighting solution for any campsite, with the added advantage of it being a portable power bank and also being able to play back your favorite tunes just in case the sound of crickets and other night insects become too much for a city-tuned ear.
It does seem as though many things need to get smart these days. The “smart” revolution kicked off with the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), where it proved to be revolutionary when it came to taking down notes digitally for future reference. Once the PDA merged its functionality with that of a phone, there was no looking back. The smartphone paved the way for many other smart technologies, including smartwatches and smart homes. Bagel Labs decided to work on its second internet-connected smart measuring tape, calling it the PIE.
Wireless charging is considered by many to be the next step when it comes to juicing up devices.

Well, rather than getting a small wireless charging pad to be used at home or at the office, how about an entire table? This is exactly what IPAN IPAN has done, integrating wireless charging capability into its ordinary looking table.

Most of us have grown up having heard of Tupperware parties, or even followed our moms to such events when we were younger. Tupperware products are great; as they are made out of high quality plastic while boasting of airtight capability that will keep your food stashed inside nice and fresh most of the time. However, perhaps in the age of smart homes, it is time to move over from the old school Tupperware and other similar food storage containers and take a closer look at something smarter. Ovie has come up with the aptly named Smarterware system, where it is capable of transforming a regular fridge into a smart fridge, although without having to cost a bomb in the process.
