Synthesia AI Face Swapping

The AI face swapping technology is getting better rather quickly. This technology by Synthesia allows for video localization on the fly. In other words you can shoot a video and have your face speak just about any language you have a translator for… on the fly. Pretty cool and scary at the same time. Video of the Synthesia technology after the break. (more…)

Camping in plain site has become the new norm. If you drive around Mountain View, California – specifically around the Google campus you will notice RV’s and vans littering the streets. Some of these “campers” are a click above homeless and some are young tech workers. Either way, the trick to succeeding is hiding in plain site. In other words don’t use an RV, use a van. In this case, a tiny van. This inexpensive option, the Cascade Camper Kit, pimps out the Ram Promaster City van. For about $7,000 you can...

Keurig-Drinkworks-Drinkmaker

Keurig collaborated with Anheuser-Busch for this cold beverage machine. It will make cocktails, beer, and wine form those little plastic pods in under one minute. The Keurig Drinkworks Drinkmaker is only available in St. Louis for the launch. Current pods include daiquiri, cosmopolitan, gin & tonic, lime vodka soda, long island iced tea, margarita, mojito, moscow mule, sangria, white russian, old fashion, man tai, and a few beers. More to come. Is this the future of drinks at home? Time will tell.

Lilium Jet Air Taxi
Over the last few years we have seen many attempts at VTOL concepts and personal airplanes. Few have been as smooth as the Lilium Jet Air Taxi. This cool little guy can take off vertically and fly at speeds up to 186 mph (same number for range). The Lilium airplane was originally going to be sold as a private aircraft but will now be used for ride sharing only (think Uber of the air). The Lilium Jet uses 36 individual electric fans for vertical and horizontal propulsion and should be on the market in the next few years.

It looks like the 2014 prototype electric motorcycle is finally making it to production in 2019. Pricing and specs are still a mystery with the Harley-Davidson LiveWire. There is no gasoline used as this is an all-electric powertrain with a magnetic electric motor mounted low in the frame. I am not sure this will appeal to Harley-Davidson riders as they typically like to be the loudest and most annoying guys in...

Christmas Tree Delivered

So much for the tradition of hopping in the car, picking a tree, cutting it down, and hauling it home for Christmas. Oh Amazon, you know no boundaries.

This year you can pre-order your Christmas tree from now until November 19th, heck you can even pick between a fraser fir , a balsam fir, or a black hill spruce. Price is about $100 which is more expensive than most local tree farms, but hey, the deliver it to your door!

prank-candles

This is my type of prank. You simply drop off a wonderfully scented candle that smells great for an hour or two of lit time, then it smells really bad. Even the packaging and product keep the secret of what is to come. Get yours here for about $17 with free shipping.

This hand-crafted candle literally starts out smelling like the sweet scent of Apple Pie and turns into Dirty Fart after about an hour or two. This isn’t just a poop scented candle. The top layer smells pleasant & incredible prompting your unsuspecting victim to light it at a dinner party, on a date, when they are relaxing, or any inopportune time to get pranked. Our patented process creates a clear and distinct switch from good to bad scent.

Wosports W600

The Wosport’s W600 multi-function range finder is an amazing piece of technology.  It is light weight, but durably with a firm rubberized exterior.  And, the most important part, it is accurate. Read on for the full review. (more…)

US_Navy_Electromagnetic_Railgun

The US military, and the US Navy specifically, continue to make scarier and scarier weapons. This US Navy electromagnetic railgun launches a heavy piece of metal (High Velocity Projectile) at speeds up to Mach 7. These HVP’s are deadly accurate and less expensive than similar traditional weapons.
