I am always amazed at how far the old game of cornhole has come. Cornhole keeps popping up at backyard bbq’s, tailgates, and more. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have the game in your pocket? Well, it turns out you can with QuarterHole, a tiny version of the original game that uses quarters instead of beanbags. These guys even created versions with your favorite college team, beer logo, etc… Finally, after weeks of trial & error, Juan tried using something...

If you grab something, put it in your bag, you can change your mind and put it back on the shelf and the system automatically updates. ...

Beijing is already quite cramped causing incredibly expensive and small apartments.

The China’s People’s Architecture Office (PAO) just completed a home for a first-time buyer in Beijing. Mrs. Fan’s Plugin House was constructed in a few hours with a small team and cost just $10,000. Pretty amazing. Apparently this house can be built in under 24 hours with just two unskilled people. Mrs. Fan’s...

The CRKT Homefront Knife was designed by Ken Onion and features a WWI vintage look, a Field Strip Technology, an AUS 8 steel blade, and 6061 aircraft grade aluminum handles....

Let me just get the bad news out of the way up front. The AUTOLift 3000 seems to be stuck in Czech Republic for the time being. Pricing and US availability are still up in the air.

The power for this ultra-thin car lift is provided by a standard electric or air-powered drill. Then, you can...

360-degree cameras continue to improve while shrinking in size and price. So, no surprise the technology is finding its way to different devices, in this case sunglasses.

The best part is that this 360-degree sunglass video is stabilized...
