Lenovo’s ultraportable speaker is as slim and small as your phone

The Lenovo 700 Ultraportable Bluetooth Speaker is quite literally the most portable one ever. Most portable Bluetooth speakers are portable alright, but they aren’t slip-into-your-pocket portable. Audio drivers tend to have depth/thickness to them, resulting in speakers that may be small and lightweight, but are almost always chunky too, making them ideal for laptop bags, but not pant pockets.Lenovo’s latest offering wants to be the kind of Bluetooth speaker you carry around with you, the way ...

These security cameras are monitored by AI as well as a human surveillance team

Do you remember that viral video of the engineer that designed this glitter bomb for parcel-thieves? It was this over-engineered box that contained a motor, a centrifugal cup with glitter, a fart-bomb, and four smartphones that recorded the incredibly cathartic experience of seeing your parcel thief open the box only to be doused in glitter and sprayed with fart-spray. Thieves would see an unsuspecting box on a porch and pick it up. Once they opened it, the motor would trigger, sending glitter...

The Gaze Tray is Apple’s AirPower Charger with a Lifestyle-design Touch

The Gaze Tray joins an already powerful design movement to make tech and tech accessories more home-friendly. Technology that is present inside an interior space must recognize and respect the space it is in.

You Can Ask Alexa to Change Sounds on Roland's New Keyboard While Your Hands Keep Playing

Voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa have been baked into a lot of questionable gadgets that don’t really need to be controlled through voice commands. But one device where hands-free operation makes a bit more sense is a digital piano where a user’s hands are preoccupied making music, so Roland’s adding Alexa to its…Read more...

Hyundai is building a ‘walking car’

Wheels have the advantage of speed, but can’t move as efficiently on rough terrain. Legs, on the other hand, can move on any terrain, but can’t move as fast as wheels can. Combine both and you’ve got yourself the best of both worlds… the ability to traverse through rough land as well as glide on smooth roads. That’s what Hyundai seems to be teasing with the Elevate, an EV concept that they’re being extremely hush-hush about, but plan to reveal more at CES in Las Vegas next week.The Elevate creat...

Samsung’s latest space-saving design-driven monitors are an absolute win

I remember some 3-4 years ago when Samsung released their Serif TV and I couldn’t possibly imagine what the company was thinking. The TV was hideous, as it tried to tread the line between domestic appliance and gadget. Then one year later, Samsung debuted their QLED TVs with the Ambient Mode that, rather than making the TV stand out, made it blend in. The Ambient Mode was a work of genius, and showed that Samsung took research and design seriously rather than just coming up with eye-catching f...
