SpyFinder Pro Hidden Camera Detector Seeks Kickstarter Funding

If you walk into my living room, you will see a small white WiFi camera sitting on a shelf. It lets me check in on my Goldendoodle Nava when we’re out. These days, however, many WiFi cameras (often called Spy Cameras) are hidden from view. That’s where the SpyFinder Pro Hidden Camera Detector comes in. It is seeking funding on…


Snoppa Atom 3-Axis Gimbal Rocks Steady!

It amazes me at just how much technology has advanced the camera world. What used to involve carrying a shoulder-mounted equivalent of a TV studio camera now fits in the palm of your hand. Trouble is, handheld video suffers being handheld, and therefore is usually very shaky. Enter Snoppa and its new Atom three-axis gimbal.


Lume Cube Is the Best New Lighting Accessory for Cameras

I get home from work and there is a box on the front porch and inside the box is a little cube. The Lume Cube. What is the Lume Cube you ask? Honestly, I would almost call it the greatest little accessory for modern photography and videography.






How the Senteltech T-4F Helped Us Expand Our Business

My wife and I run a makerspace. We often describe it as a “gym for artists.” We have all sorts of equipment and resources that artists and makers can come in and use so they don’t have to make the investment themselves. We also had a few private studios to rent out for artists who wanted a dedicated space.

The Wisenet SmartCam A1 Home Security System Review: Should You Buy?

If you’re shopping for a home security camera, there’s plenty of options that you can consider, but none quite like the SmartCam A1. Imagine having a home camera that you can control and rotate for a fully immersive view of the surroundings that you place them in. The company sent over a unit for us to test out, so let’s…


This Time-Lapse Camera Lets You Capture Your Garden As It Grows

Nature has a funny way of sneaking up on people. A flower that seemed it wouldn’t flourish for weeks suddenly blooms in all its glory only a couple of days later. Nature enthusiasts know this phenomenon well, and many of them wish it were possible to record plant and flower growth as it happens, thereby never missing out on natural…


The Peak Design Everyday Backpack: One Bag to Rule Them All

If Frodo were equipped with the Peak Design Everyday Backpack, the journey to Mordor would have been much easier. Maybe the backpack wouldn’t have done anything to guard against Orcs, however, the endlessly configurable bag would have done wonders to carry the weight of Frodo’s responsibility. Starting at $259.95, the Everyday Backpack is worthy of all of life’s adventures.


Finally, a VR Headset That Doesn’t Need a Phone or a PC

Virtual reality is quickly gaining steam as a mature, mainstream technology. It’s gone from concept to a geeky project to something the everyday person can not only understand, but also utilize and enjoy. Lenovo wants to really bring that to the next level with their Mirage Solo and Mirage Camera, and by including Google Daydream and a whole lot more!

Did your 16-year-old just get their first car? Are you nervously biting your fingers every time they leave home? Raven gives you a way to know exactly what’s going on in your teen’s car — how they are driving, where they are driving, and who’s in the car with them — while disguising itself as a slick heads-up display.


Ring Floodlight Cam Delivers Serious DIY Protection

When we replaced our front door over a year ago, I purchased a Ring Doorbell; I love it. I love knowing who is there, being able to “answer” the door while away from the house, and the extra sense of security it gives me. When Ring offered a Ring Floodlight Cam for review I was, and continue to be, thrilled.
