Forget Beats, these are the tiny wireless earbuds you’ve been waiting for

If you’re not a fan of wearing large, oversized headphones and are looking for something more discreet, then you might want to check out Earin, a new Kickstarter project that’s looking to raise £179,000 (USD $303,720) to help deliver the world’s smallest wireless earbuds. How small are we talking about? Consider that they measure in at 14 millimeters by 20 millimeters and weigh only 5 grams. From the video that Earin’s creators have posted, the earbuds are barely even noticeable when someone is wearing them and they look like standard small earplugs.

Meet the incredible ‘smart cup’ that will give you nutritional info about what you’re drinking

One big driver for wearable computers is that they’ll supposedly give us improved health and fitness data, but what about computers that you can eat and drink from? Mark One has just taken the wraps off its Vessyl, a new 13-ounce “smart cup” that will not only be able to detect and breakdown what you’re pouting into your cup but also give you nutritional information on it such as how many calories it has as well as how much sugar, fat and caffeine it contains. You can view data on your drunks either on the side of the cup itself or through the official Vessyl iOS app. More →

Cool new accessory adds a wireless external flash to your iPhone

Compared to most other smartphones, Apple’s iPhone takes impressive low-light photos. In fact, the latest-generation iPhone 5s features a new dual-LED flash that improves low-light photography even more. But only so much can be accomplished by one or two tiny LED bulbs, and a new iPhone accessory looks to solve the problem of limited light by moving the flash off of the phone. More →

Kenu Airframe review: The best in-car smartphone mount for travelers

Kenu Airframe review: The best in-car smartphone mount for travelers

By on June 11, 2014 at 3:35 PM.

I’m hoping that things change in the (near) future, but for now, my smartphone outsmarts any in-car navigation system that I’ve seen. To date, I have yet to find anything as excellent as having Google Maps leading the way, which presents a relatively simple problem: How is one supposed to mount his or her phone in their vehicle without leaving any permanent scars?

3D Food Printing Future

Interest in 3D food printing seems to be crashing pretty spectacularly

Interest in 3D food printing seems to be crashing pretty spectacularly

The 3D printing market has seen an explosion of creativity in recent months and it’s hard to say whether this stems from healthy demand or from a tech industry bubble that’s still inflating at a frightening pace. Either way, the latest bloom of innovation comes from Oxford-based company called Dovetailed and it has just launched a 3D printer that “extends a molecular-gastronomy technique called spherification.” To put it bluntly, the machine creates spherical blobs of jelly that adhere together forming raspberry-shaped delicacies. The company calls these concoctions “fresh and organic 3D fruits on demand,” although they do sound a lot like plain old jellies.  More →
