Never lose anything again with this amazing magnetized backpack

Finding the right backpack can be a challenge. Everyone has different priorities when it comes to what they need to pack for work or for travel, but what if you had a backpack that adapted to your needs? That’s what Tessel Supply is attempting to provide with its latest Kickstarter project: the Anti-Gravity Modular Pack System. Similar to Google’s Project Ara, the Anti-Gravity system has several replaceable parts which can be rearranged for maximum efficiency. More →

Meet Om One, the insanely spectacular levitating speaker

Om One is the name of a new speaker that offers an amazing and rather unexpected feature: Levitation. The Om One is an orb that plays music while floating atop of its base.

With 49 days left in this self-hosted crowd-funding campaign, the Om One has already convinced 213 backers to pledge almost $37,000 . The Om One speaker costs $179 during this fundraising campaign, or $20 off its future commercial price, and it should ship to backers by Christmas. More →

Weirdest Smart Devices Ever

The market is about to be flooded with some of the weirdest ‘smart’ devices you’ve ever seen

The market is about to be flooded with some of the weirdest ‘smart’ devices you’ve ever seen

We all have witnessed the depressing news flow about slowing smartphone and tablet sales growth over the past 12 months. But this week, Semiconductor Industry Association threw a curve ball by announcing that chip sales actually increased by a surprisingly robust 11% in the first half of 2014 compared the same period in 2013. SIA is actually hiking its annual growth estimate to 6.5% from earlier projection of 4.1% growth. How can chip sales growth be accelerating if phone and tablet markets are mediocre? More →

Ryan Seacrest’s ‘BlackBerry killer’ copycat keyboard is back from the dead

You can’t keep a good copycat down. CrackBerry brings us word that Ryan Seacrest’s Typo has just unveiled a new keyboard attachment that it hopes is different enough from BlackBerry’s keyboards to avoid getting slapped with injunctions. The first-generation Typo was such a blatant BlackBerry knockoff that it never really stood a chance in court and was immediately hit with preliminary sales ban earlier this year. More →

GoPro: Car Wheel Video

We got dizzy watching this GoPro video so you don’t have to

More and more videos recorded with GoPro cameras are popping up online, some daring, some scary and some weird, as the tiny portable camera gets more and more popular. But what happens when a GoPro owner decides to stick his camera to one of the wheels of his car using nothing but duct tape and to record a short drive at 45mph or so? First of all, the resulting nearly 3-minute long video is impressive, showing yet another way the camera can be used to obtain some stunning visual effects. Secondly, you start to get dizzy, and the video seems awfully long. More →

Motorola now wants you to buy temporary digital tattoos to unlock your Moto X

Remember the Motorola Skip? A tiny wearable smartphone accessory that can help you quickly unlock the Moto X and other 2013 Moto Droid handsets? Well, Motorola has devised a similar version of the Skip, but this time around it goes on your skin rather than on a piece of clothing. The company has partnered with VivaLnk, and started selling a temporary Digital Tattoo that can be worn on the user’s skin to quickly unlock the Moto X. More →

Kenu Airframe Plus

Kenu Airframe+: One of our favorite smartphone accessories just got even better

Kenu Airframe+: One of our favorite smartphone accessories just got even better

By on July 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM.

Kenu’s Airframe is my favorite in-car phone mount, but for those of you with phablets or bulky cases, it’s a bit small. The company is seemingly well aware of that, and is making strides to address a broader market with the introduction of the Airframe+. Weighing under an ounce and supporting phones with screen sizes as large as 6-inches diagonally, the sized-up holster addresses one of the few gripes I had with the original.

I’ve been using the Airframe+ for the past couple of weeks, and I can safely say that it’s a marked improvement over the already-impressive Airframe. More →

Indiegogo Pd.Id Date Rape Drug Tester

Potato Salad backers, here’s the project you really should be funding

Potato Salad backers, here’s the project you really should be funding

Potato Salad took Kickstarter by storm a few days ago when the project to create a salad went viral, convincing many people to donate a lot more money for this particular Kickstarter listing than it actually needed. However, there are more interesting and useful projects out there, such as the pd.id stick that’s currently looking to raise $100,000 by August 29 on Indiegogo. What the pd.id can do is to quickly test a beverage for traces of drugs that are sometimes used to coerce some people into doing things they otherwise wouldn’t – in other words, pd.id is a date rape drug test capable of quickly recognizing many types of drugs.
