Blocks modular smartwatch storms past $250,000 Kickstarter goal in less than a day

It all started as an awesome concept, at least on paper, a few years ago: The Blocks modular smartwatch that would let the wearer customize his or her smartwatch experience by removing and adding blocks that contain different hardware components. Since then, the Blocks Wearables team has made significant progress, and a functional device should ship to your door by next May, assuming you’re ready to back it up on Kickstarter – and that everything goes well during manufacturing.

Nexus 5 2015 Pricing Structure

I think I’ve figured out how much the new Nexus 5 will cost

I think I’ve figured out how much the new Nexus 5 will cost

Recent leaks have suggested that Google’s 2015 Nexus 5 handset will be a lot more affordable than last year’s pricey Nexus 6. While actual pricing details have not been offered by sources familiar with Google’s plans, there have been indications the phone will have sub-flagship specs, which generally means it’ll be friendlier to your wallet just as the original Nexus 5 was back in 2013.

However, a brand-new smartphone announcement made earlier today has given me a pretty good idea of what the new Nexus 5’s pricing structure will be. Why, you ask? Because this new phone has the exact same specs that are rumored for the next Nexus 5. More →

How to fix a major Galaxy Note 5 flaw with one smart portable device

Even before Samsung the Galaxy Note 5 became official, rumors suggested the phone would lack a microSD slot and a removable battery, which are two features many hardcore Android fans consider essential. Samsung confirmed all that during the event a few days ago and then further annoyed some buyers by not even launching 128GB versions of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+. However, there’s one gadget currently raising funds on Kickstarter that might fix all of the phone’s major issues. More →

Meet WalkCar, a new transportation device even cooler than Lexus’s hoverboard

Earlier this week, Lexus proved that it can make a real hoverboard, but it comes with a major catch: We don’t have the streets that can actually make magnetic levitation possible.
