NIU KQi Air and KQi Air X Carbon Fiber Electric Scooters Will Make Commuting with Your Scooter Easier to Manage

Most electric scooters offer the same experience; you get on, ride, and, assuming the motor is powerful enough, you can easily zip around during your commute. But what if part of getting to work means carrying your scooter onto a bus or subway or inside the office once you’ve arrived? With most scooters weighing up to 60 pounds, that can be tricky. But the 700W NIU KQi Air series offers something that should help; each of the two new models has a carbon fiber frame, weighing under 27 pounds.




Withings ScanWatch 2 and ScanWatch Light Will Offer Even More Exceptional Health Tracking Options

One of the best smartwatches I’ve ever used is the 43mm Withings ScanWatch; it tracks my sleep, steps, heart rate, SpO2, ECG, and much more. I rely on it so much that it only leaves my wrist for recharging about once a month. All that to say, I didn’t think there was much room or need for improvement, but of course, Withings has found a way. They’ve just introduced their second generation of ScanWatch, including the flagship Withings ScanWatch 2 and the attractively priced ScanWatch Light. Let’s take a look at these new watches and the features that they’ll offer.

CASETiFY Ultra Bounce Case Will Offer 32-Feet of Ultimate Drop Protection and More!

According to CASETiFY’s internal research, over 90% of screen cracks happen when the smartphone hits its corner during a fall. To combat that, they’re introducing what they say may be the most protective phone case, the CASETiFY Ultra Bounce Case. Not only can it handle being dropped from up to 32′, but it also sports 10X Military Grade Standard (MIL-STD 810G 516.7) shock protection, and it can be personalized.


The XGIMI HORIZON Ultra Offers 4K Long-Throw Projection, Dolby Vision, and More Features Than You’d Think Possible for Under $1700

If you’ve considered upgrading your home theater setup and want the most bang for your buck, the new flagship 4K XGIMI HORIZON Ultra should pique your interest. It’s the world’s first and only long-throw home projector sporting Dolby Vision. The HORIZON Ultra sports a hybrid laser and LED system, which are hardware-level computing optics usually only seen on luxury projectors costing thousands of dollars; it also offers low-latency gaming modes, and it doesn’t look like the usual box that you’d want to hide somewhere — because it’s not ugly!





Urbanista Malibu Is an IP67 Dust and Waterproof, Light-Powered Speaker Ready for Outdoor Fun

How often have you been at the lake or pool while enjoying good music and great company, only to have the battery on your portable speaker die or for someone to drip all over your speaker?

The sustainability doesn’t end there; the Urbanista Malibu is made from recycled plastic and fabrics!


2023 John Deere Tech Summit: Helping Family Famers Efficiently Feed an Ever-Growing Population

In many countries, shoppers enjoy the privilege of entering their choice of well-stocked grocery stores to find an ever-changing selection of fresh and packaged food options. Most of us probably don’t give a second thought to the people and processes responsible for producing our food; we just take the bounty for granted. But since attending the John Deere Tech Summit in Austin, I’ve gained a fresh appreciation for farmers (especially family farmers), the farming process, and for John Deere — the company that’s been helping farmers feed and clothe their families — and the world — since 1837.


Qualcomm at MWC Reminds Us That Their Connectivity Runs The World

Qualcomm quietly powers so much of our lives, from the processors in your phone to the connectivity in your house. They never stop innovating, though, and they came prepared to show off at MWC! We’ve gone from SIM cards down to eSIM, but Qualcomm looked at that and thought, “needs to be smaller.” Enter the iSIM, which takes the eSIM to the next step by integrating the SIM directly into the processor. This may not sound like a big deal to the end user, but it will save significant space under the hood. That means more room for your phone…
