Changing seasons are the inspiration behind this vintage-esque typewriter!

The number of people who opt for laptops over desktops has been increasing by the day. Not everyone prefers keyboards, but they are essentially useful for people who tend to type a lot on a daily basis such as writers, journalists and etc. We’ve seen a lot of innovative portable keyboard designs over the years, however, Lofree’s Four Seasons Keyboard is an ode to the past. Inspired by quintessential typewriters, the Lofree Four Seasons is a retro-esque mechanical keyboard. As the product’s name ...

The Oppo C1 gamepad turns your smartphone into a Switch-style portable gaming setup

While its lack of symmetric design does bother me a slight bit, the Oppo Gamepad C1 Unicorn Gundam Edition (the name’s quite a mouthful) does give you a great handheld gaming experience. It features a telescopic expandable design that lets you fit a smartphone in, although it’s tailored specifically to visually complement Oppo’s Reno Ace Gundam Edition.The C1 Gamepad’s most defining feature is its ergonomic, asymmetric design. It’s ergonomic to allow you to grip it better (especially with that c...

Winston encrypts your home wi-fi, preventing Facebook, Google, and Amazon from tracking you

Alexa, Google, and Siri. It took just three words to absolutely erode our freedom and privacy. Don’t worry, I’m just as much a part of this as you are. I have a Google Pixel smartphone and an iPad Pro, and flatmate in the room next door has an Amazon Echo. I also spend roughly 3-4 hours each day on Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp everyday. Ambient computing, voice assistants, and the ever-expanding realm of social networks have effectively undermined the private way of life.If you suddenly g...

The digital economy benefits the 1%. Here’s how to change that.

Intentional or not, certain inequalities are inherent in a digital economy that is structured and controlled by a few corporations that don't represent the interests or the demographics of the majority.While concern and anger are valid reactions to these inequalities, UCLA professor Ramesh Srinivasan also sees it as an opportunity to take action. Srinivasan says that the digital economy can be reshaped to benefit the 99 percent if we protect laborers in the gig economy, get independent journalis...

How a 100-year-old French Army design outperforms today's U.S. helmets 

According to a recent research project it appears that the form – the shape and surface detailing – of the French "Adrian" helmet, a design used over a hundred years ago, is better at deflecting blast shocks than its more plainly shaped modern counterparts. An author of the study, Joost Op ‘t Eynde, a PhD student at Duke University, says "we were surprised to find that the 100-year-old helmets performed just as well as modern ones,”He and his co-authors hypothesize as to what elements play a ro...

Farewell to Cut, Copy, and Paste Inventor Larry Tesler

An Apple, Xerox, Amazon, Yahoo, and 23AndMe alum—and an early researcher in the field of artificial intelligence—Larry Tesler may not be as well-known as early computing icons like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, or Steve Wozniak, but his impact on the industry remains important today. Tesler popularized the tools cut, copy, and paste while working on Xerox PARC’s mouse-driven user interface—specifically an app within it called …

Bomb-Sniffing Cyborg Grasshoppers

Dogs and even pigs have long been heralded as having the ultimate snout—one capable of detecting bombs, drugs, truffles, and even human beings through thick brush and dense soil. But, courtesy of a bit of high-tech engineering, cyborg grasshoppers may be the ultimate nose after all. Researchers at the University of Missouri inserted electrodes into the antennal lobes of each grasshopper (the “brain” of the …

Critics question Amazon's sustainability amidst Bezos Earth Fund launch

Earlier this week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos vowed to mitigate the impact of climate change by establishing the Bezos Earth Fund. He’s committed $10 billion to start the fund, making it one of the largest charitable pledges to date. The fund has earmarked delivery of grants for this summer to various activists, nonprofits and scientists who strive for better stewardship of Earth.

Folding Screen Smartphone Fails: Motorola RAZR, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

As someone who hates carrying a large-screen phone, but enjoys using one, I was excited by the idea of the Motorola RAZR. It promised the best of both worlds, folding to a compact size for carrying but offering a large screen when open.Sadly, the RAZR is already crashing and burning. Raymond Wong over at Input Mag found that the screen went bad at the hinge--after just one week of use:Images by Raymond Wong / Input As Wong explains:The screen's damage isn't just cosmetic. The touchscreen is semi...

Here's Herbie Hancock Demonstrating a Primitive Music Computer to Quincy Jones in 1984

No child of the '80s can forget the music video to Herbie Hancock's "Rockit:" It's hard to describe how freaky, mind-blowing and revolutionary that video seemed at the time. I probably haven't seen it in 20 years until looking it up just now, and I have to say it still holds up. Hancock was ahead of his time.Anyways I looked "Rockit" up because yesterday I came across some behind-the-scenes footage of Hancock in 1984, demonstrating this pioneering Fairlight CMI (Computer Musical Instrument) to ...

Meet VOIXATCH, a smartwatch for an alternate world where watches and earphones are one product

It might sound a little dumb now that I’m saying it in 2020 but we may have been duped. Companies have, for too long, made us buy unnecessary products that just about do the same thing but in slightly different ways. Think about it. Your phone, watch, and earbuds all give you notifications (albeit in different ways). They also all let you access your voice assistant, and pretty much most of your data like your calendar, phone book, or other services. Why then, do we need separate devices that ...

Inside A 1947 Boeing 377 Stratocruiser, The Largest And Fastest Aircraft In Commercial Service

The Stratocruiser’s lower-deck lounge had a bar where passengers could buy a cocktail or soft drink. After World War II, Boeing reentered the commercial market with a new long-range airliner, the Stratocruiser (Model 377).

This “Bracelet of Silence” actively blocks Alexa and Siri from hearing your conversations

How to Build Your Personal Brand as a Freelancer

This is impressive considering that the gig economy was virtually non-existent just a decade ago. Now, the number of freelancers is projected to reach more than 90 million in less than a decade.
