Google-inspired designs that every techie would love to get their hands on!

With Apple and Amazon continuing to surprise us with their inventions, we are waiting in anticipation of their September 30th event.

Amazon Echo Show 10’s swiveling screen is a logical and worthy upgrade!

At the hardware release event, Amazon just dropped the successor to the Echo Show. Called Echo Show 10, it’s roughly 20 bucks costlier than the previous 10.1-inch brick, but is more life-like and productive. This smart assistant comes with a similar 10.1-inch full-HD screen (two tweeters and a woofer) that’s capable of rotating as you move around in...

The do not disturb doorbell twists to give keep visitors away!

Imagine this, you’re wrapping up an important business call, hitting your stride on a deadline-based project, or just catching up with some good friends when suddenly the doorbell rings and interrupts the moment.

This 100% self-sterilizing anti-microbial jacket is the ideal apparel to keep you safe outdoors

Modern problems require modern solutions. Meet the Just5, a jacket that was built to act as PPE, with the ability to self-sanitize in just 5 minutes.

This creative planter lets you know when you watered it last!

In my experience, there are two types of plant-lovers. People who love plants and are capable of taking care of them, and people who love plants but inevitably end up killing them every single time. Me, I’m somewhere on that spectrum, closer to the latter. I love plants, but to be quite frank, I suffer from watering-memory-loss syndrome. That’s medical-speak...

Security or stalker? Amazon’s Ring drone flies around your house to ward off uninvited guests

This can only play out one of two ways. A. It works exactly as intended… warding off thieves and keeping your house safe, or B. It overperforms, ending up stalking you, misidentifying family members with masks, and giving Amazon MUCH MORE information about your house than it already deserves. The Ring Drone was unveiled at Amazon’s hardware event today,...

The 2020 James Dyson Award-winning project helps calculate blood sugar using just your breath

Gone are the days of having to physically prick your skin to see how much sugar there was in your blood.

Portable wireless charger gives your phone and your mind a chance to re-energize!

The video above is a stark contrast to every single tech unveil, keynote, or TV spot I’ve seen in the past few years. It’s easy to be seduced by Apple’s flashing 2-minute videos, Samsung’ glamorous product showcases, or Google’s “we make life so much better” advertisements, but those videos come with an agenda of selling a product and a lifestyle… the...

Solar-powered autonomous personal mobility scooter doubles as treadmill to help you stay fit!

Segway has come a long way in changing the perception of personal mobility and how technology propels it forward for ultimate user satisfaction. The two-wheeled personal mobility vehicle has inspired many other designs that shape the future of mobility on the outskirts of urban spaces.

Trailer Designs that convert your camping life to glamping!

Camping, or planning my next camping experience has been one of my favorite past times over the past few months – I have tons of Pinterest boards to attest to that!
