Pulling out a stick stylus is rather plebeian, right? I mean, pretty much anyone can get one of those. If you want to appear like you’ve got everything under control and are living large — even if only to those in your latest Zoom call — obviously, you need to put the $250 Adonit Prime Stylus on your credit card.
We’ve covered dry herb vapes here before, but they’re usually fairly advanced with fancy battery life, apps to control temperature, and other neat tricks. We recently tested a much simpler vape, the DynaVap M, and it blows the battery based vapes away!
As legislation to legalize medicinal and recreational cannabis moves forward in numerous states, and as CBD use continues to explode, new technologies for consumption are coming to market. The Omura Series X is a sleek device that heats, rather than burns, whole flower herbs with impressive results. It reenvisions the entire vaping process and looks like something Apple would release.
One of the downsides to working from home is that there are fewer reasons to get up and move around. At work, I would get up from my desk and walk to visit coworkers, get coffee, or visit the printer; at home, that just doesn’t happen. I was starting to feel pain from this loss of routine movement in my back and hips, which is why I was excited to give the Victor DCX610 Standing Desk a whirl!
When Apple released the current Apple Watch, I immediately picked one up. I love the functionality, but there are times when I simply want a watch that tells time. That’s what the NOVE Trident Diver Watch delivers. The thin, 6.8mm dive watch is gorgeous; it is also tough and good for depths up to 660 feet!
I’m always looking for functional and stylish accessories to help me stay organized, and when it comes to green medicine use, this is no exception. As recreational and medicinal cannabis options become more mainstream, so do the network of accessories and accouterments to use alongside one’s favorite recreational or medicinal vice…and I am here for it.
I could have used the Audew Epower-188 Multi-Function Jump Starter a few months ago. Kev and I were about to leave the Eldorado High School Homecoming Parade, and that was the exact moment my Jeep’s battery decided to die. Of course. And did I have a set of jumper cables with me? Of course not.
Back in late 2018, IK Multimedia surprised vintage synth lovers with their Uno Synth – a tiny monophonic device with capacitive buttons for the keys as well as numerous functions and a few knobs. The surprise was that while Uno Synth looked like a toy, it controlled and sounded like a pro-grade analog synth punching way above its price point. I have put dozens of hours into creating fun sounds with the Uno Synth, and so was thrilled to see IK announce the follow-up – the UNO Synth Pro and UNO Synth Pro Desktop.
Vespera, conceived as the perfect combination of a telescope and a camera, aims to make astronomy and astrophotography accessible to everyone. Telescopes can be heavy, cumbersome, and difficult to use; Vespera removes the telescope’s eyepiece and uses your mobile device as the viewfinder, in conjunction with their app. With the app, you can capture photos of galaxies, planets, nebulae, and more.
Sometimes you don’t think of two things as complementary, then when you see them together, it all clicks. The first person to combine peanut butter and jelly probably got some odd looks, and we all know bacon makes everything better. Another combo you might not consider, but that works surprisingly well? Led Zeppelin + Stern Pinball = Led Zeppelin Pinball!
Like many people, I suffer from seasonal allergies. Apparently, I’m allergic to trees, which is unfortunate since they’re everywhere and kind of key to a healthy ecosystem. Luckily, companies are working on alternatives to popping copious amounts of Zyrtec. Fluo Labs Flo has a particularly intriguing concept, where they use handheld light therapy to reduce nasal inflammation caused by Allergic Rhinitis.
SKOOG, a media-tech company with the mission to enrich children’s lives through creative and immersive play, has announced a global partnership with Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, to introduce a new interactive platform that merges tactile technology with the huge content library featuring Sesame Street characters.
During the course of the pandemic, I’ve collected my fair share of masks in a variety of colors. Some have been good, and some have been bad, but none were quite like the Refresh Mask N95 Personal Purification System. A self-proclaimed ‘Intelligent Personal Air Purifier’ that leads me to ask the question — Why?
If you’re interested in an affordable fitness tracking watch with long battery life, one that is as stylish as it is smart, you’ll want to check out the new Amazfit GTS 2 and GTR 2 smartwatches. They can track your activity, sleep, heart rate, SP02, monitor your stress, and more. Best of all, they are affordably priced.
Lenovo does more than just computers and accessories; they also own Motorola, and that leads to a whole new mobile world as well. While most of us laughed off the sci-fi future that Google Glasses showed, there’s a market for a hands-free way to access all sorts of data safely and easily. Lenovo is taking that to the next level with ThinkReality A3, augmented-reality glasses for the enterprise user.
We all have certain personal, medicinal, or otherwise private items that we’d prefer not to be easily discovered by curious children, snoopy coworkers, or opportunistic strangers; the TROVA GO can help. Marketed as a discreet biometric smart storage vessel, the TROVA GO is compact, intelligent, and secure.
Being first-time parents came with many helpful suggestions of “things we should get.” Some were useful, but we ended up not needing many of those items; some of them we ended up regretting instantly, exchanging them for things we would actually use. But one of the saving graces over the first 5 months of our daughter’s life hasn’t been new toys or a NoseFrida, but what she’s slept in. After the past few months, it’s been repeatedly shown why the Happiest Baby SNOO Smart Sleeper Bassinet has been the best thing we’ve used with or our newborn.
When it comes to “gear,” one of the best recent trends has been seeing how technology advances are transforming the medical and recreational cannabis business. One example is the Cloudious9 Atomic9 Vaporizer. At under $60, it is small, discreet, heats rapidly, and is a pleasure to use.
Many types of technology exist that truck fleets could put on their trucks to improve safety, but which are the most important and can lead to the best driver safety improvements? Below are five of them that are making a big difference in public safety.
Printing photos for your relatives every time you take a great shot of one of the kids or your latest vacation is so retro; instead, you could be uploading and sharing those masterpieces directly to a Brookstone PhotoShare Smart Digital Photo Frame in their homes. We’ve got their latest 14″ frame in for review, and it’s as easy to operate as it is stunning to look at (and watch).
In my attempt to ward off the “quarantine 15[pounds]”, I converted a section of my basement into a home gym consisting of a treadmill, dumbbells, and a smart TV. But after nine months, I realized I needed something new to reinvigorate my workouts. After much research, I chose the Echelon Smart Connect Bike EX-5, and I could not be happier!
