DJI’s latest gimbal fits in pockets and comes with a powerful 4K camera

DJI knows a thing or two when it comes to building drones, gimbals, and cameras. Whether its consumer tech or professional gadgetry, DJI’s devices are pretty much the most capable and powerful products in the market… so it doesn’t surprise me that the Osmo Pocket, a small, almost toyish gimbal from DJI’s latest lineup, is an insanely feature-packed and potent device. It comes with DJI’s years of experience in creating stabilizers, both for its drones and for professional filming cameras, and als...

3 Keys to Building Your Platform

Every presentation is an opportunity for you to educate, motivate, and inspire your audience. As a presenter in a distracted culture, you must work even harder to leave a lasting impact on your audience that will stick with them well after your presentation is over. To build this momentum, ask yourself these questions: What will my audience remember when they leave my presentation? How will they feel afterwards? Did I move them to take a worthwhile action? If you are missing one of these three c...

The world’s smallest electric multi-tool is the size of a ballpoint pen

Imagine having an entire toolkit in your stationery box, or better still, in your front pocket. That’s pretty much what the Wowstick is gunning for. The pen-shaped, pen-sized rotary-tool works as an electric screwdriver, allowing you to tighten or loosen screws at the press of a button. With literally two buttons to choose from, you can rotate the head of the Wowstick either clockwise or anti-clockwise. A set of 58 bits and tool-heads gives you immense power and flexibility, letting you work m...

The Harry Potter Franchise Is Killing Itself With Overexposure

Nostalgia is a lucrative emotion, but the fans must be respected. Although I believe books can change lives – as Harry Potter changed mine – publishing is a business. For the fans, however, these books have always been much more than a way of blowing cash. There’s enough content to make good editions, but publishers are choosing quantity over quality.

Why Restaurants Are Designed To Be Noisy

Restaurants are so loud because architects don’t design them to be quiet. Much of this shift in design boils down to changing conceptions of what makes a space seem upscale or luxurious, as well as evolving trends in food service. Right now, high-end surfaces connote luxury.

Rethinking The San Francisco Conservatory Of Music (And Finding Success)

David Stull’s notion is that any reasonable education should teach you to think critically and creatively; write and speak effectively; work alone or on a team; translate constructive criticism to advantage, and, no matter the obstacles, continue to succeed. In sum, from a proper education, you should learn to embrace versatility, failure, and the desire to innovate. You should also know how to create a 501(C)(3).

How Bing Crosby Changed Pop Music

Without him, Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Dinah Shore, Dean Martin and countless other intimate singers could never have happened. A workhorse, he turned out a staggering number of recordings (including dozens of No. 1 hits) as well as films, radio shows and personal appearances. Whatever he did seemed off-the-cuff and effortless.

Matt Taber’s “the world is yours if you are real” at Brooklyn’s The Chimney Gallery

Peek into a 17-foot-high cloud sculpture and explore its relationship to other artworks Transportive in many ways, artist Matt Taber’s exhibition “the world is yours if you are real” asks visitors to peer inside a cloud sculpture 17 feet off the ground. Metal stairs rise into an off-white room of cotton batting, containing two cloud paintings by the artist. It’s a reprieve and a riddle, …

This genius double-walled cup lets you eat your cereals on-the-go!

The Crunch Cup is just the kind of invention I’d expect from a mad scientist who wanted to have a wholesome breakfast while rushing to work. For years we’ve been able to carry coffee, tea, juices, and milkshakes around with us in flasks, but having cereal on the go has always been that elusive concept that nobody bothered to crack… until now.That’s where the Crunch Cup is trying to change the game. The first cup that’s designed to have cereals while on the move, the Crunch Cup comes with a dou...

Some Unusual Design Decisions Made for Rivian's Electric Pickup Truck

I can't tell if this vehicle has an identity crisis, or is a sign of some future in which people no longer use vehicles in the way they were originally intended to be used. A startup called Rivian plans to produce this $69,000 electric pickup truck which has at least one nifty storage feature, but I have to wonder: Why on Earth is it a pickup truck? The bed appears too stubby to be of serious utility--you're not getting a full-size sheet of plywood into this thing--and more damnin...

Tools & Craft #117: Why New Tools Used to Arrive Unsharpened

When you purchase an edge tool (plane, chisel, knife, carving tool, etc.), it will either have a "Factory Edge" or be described as "Sharp and ready to use." The idea of having a ready-to-use status is a comparatively new idea in tool marketing. Up until fairly recently - let's say 1960 - it was generally understood that most of the customers of tools were craftsmen who understood that even a new and sharpened tool would, after a few minutes work, require resharpening again. So why spend more ...

Look Inside This Comprehensive "Secret" Museum of All White Porsches

I think buying a Porsche is partly about getting to drive a Porsche, and largely about gaining access to a relatively exclusive tribe. And the members of this tribe can be fanatical. Case in point is this "super-secret white Porsche collection," where the secret part is that they don't reveal the location in this very public video. (Members of the Porsche Club of America, the organization that produced this video, presumably get the address.) Here caretaker...

Take A One-Woman Drag Show About Machismo And Consent. Now Have A Man Perform It. What Happens?

At the Edinburgh Fringe this past summer and currently in London, Los Angeles actor Natalie Palamides performs her solo show titled Nate, in whch she plays an unrepentantly dopey douchebag. For two nights this week, Palamides had the show’s director, Phil Burgers (who performs as a clown under the stage name Dr. Brown), stepped in for her while she called out directions from just offstage. Did the gender swap change everything about the show? Brian Logan went to find out.

French Report On Cultural Restitution Puts Museums On Edge

Stéphane Martin, president of the Quai Branly Museum, which has 70,000 objects from sub-Saharan Africa in its collections, said in an interview with the French daily Le Figaro that last week’s report was “a bad answer to the courageous question posed by the president.” While restitution was “not a word that I’m scandalized by,” he added, there are “other ways to engage in cultural cooperation with Africa.”
