Don’t complain about your daily commute. At least not until you have watched this insane traffic jam outside of Beijing, China. First of all, I have never seen a road with hat many lanes of cars. Holy cow. Then in typical road planning madness they have to go through a checkpoint then merge down to 1/3 of the lanes. Additionally there are no painted lanes, good times. Either way, this has to be the most insane traffic jam I have ever seen. Video of the madness after the break.
DJI is known for their quadcopters no doubt. They, in my opinion, are the most reliable quads on the market today. Now they are applying their proven 3-axis stabilization to a handheld gimbal, the DJI Osmo ($649) with a 4k camera along for the ride. The camera shoots 4K video and up to 120fps at 1080P. Heck you can even put a better camera/lens on the stabilizer if that is your thing.
There is a joystick for full pan and tilt control as well as trigger for switching between modes (upright, selfie, flashlight, locked, and underslung). Heck you can even shoot automatic panoramas and time-lapse videos. Apparently I am not the only one hitting the DJI website as it is currently down. Ouch. Again, Apple please buy these guys.
Earbuds (or EarPods) are a great way to listen to your movies/music and take phone calls. At least when you have them with you. The folks at TurtleCell agree and have built a case that not only protects your iPhone 5/5S or 6 but also has built-in and retractable headphones. If nothing else it is a unique looking iPhone case. No mention if this crazy case works with the iPhone 6S.
The saying goes… the best camera is the one you have with you. It is true. And while I wish I could/would carry my DSLR camera with me at all times it just isn’t practical. So, a full 95-percent of my photos are shot with my Apple iPhone. Well things are about to change in a big way. The Light L16 Camera ($1,699, minus $400 if you order this month) has 16 individual cameras and is the world’s first multi-aperture computational camera. What the heck does that mean? It means that you get the control of a DSLR in a form factor not much bigger than a smartphone. The camera can go as high as 52-megapixels, has a large touchscreen, onboard editing, and built-in Wi-Fi.
Still not impressed? Watch the video after the break. But really, this tiny camera allows for some impressive tricks like incredible depth of field that allows post-photo light, focus, and depth adjustments all the way to f/1.2! True optical zoom for the close-up photos, 35-150mm. Low light isn’t a problem with Light’s imaging engine that makes up for poor lighting conditions. Apple, hurry up and buy these guys and put it in my iPhone!
Imagine an iPhone (6) case that would allow instant access to your favorite information like stock prices, weather, email count, photos, boarding passes, notifications, and more. The Oaxis InkCase I6 ($99) is an iPhone 6 case with a built-in E-Ink display on the back. It has a tiny battery and uses Bluetooth for update from the iPhone. Sure your phone gets a bit thicker at 11.1mm but think of the info you can access without having to power up the main screen. Prototype video after the break.
Got bad posture? This UpRight Posture Trainer ($130) gadget claims it can cure your slouching ways. Yep, simply load the app on your smartphone, attach the UpRight Posture gadget to your lower back with a strip of hypoallergenic adhesive, and straighten your back every time you feel a vibration. There is more to it than that, but those are the basics. Video and more pics after the break.
Pepsi had a spot in the Back to the Future II movie as Marty ordered one while at the diner. He didn’t just order any Pepsi, it was a Pepsi Perfect. Pepsi is about to honor the date in the future (October 21st 2015) that Marty arrived. For $20.15 each you can try and order one of the 6,500 bottles they will be making. More pictures and a futuristic commercial after the break.
It seems, to me, that most people are in the hybrid/electric camp, or they’re not. There are people who cringe at the thought of having to drive a Prius, Volt, or Leaf. And, while none of them are perfect… they are damn close (except the Leaf). I am not going to go into the details of each car. This is about the 2016 Chevy Volt which has been totally redesigned. So what is new/different in the 2016 Chevy Volt? Read on for details, pics, and video.
If, unlike me, you have $5-million kicking around and want your own personal fighter jet, pay attention. The Saker S-1 is getting closer to launching and expects the first deliveries to hit in 2019. The jet not only looks amazing, but it is fast as well. Users can expect speeds just short of Mach-1 (Mach .99) with a 1.600 mile range. Still not impressed? Users can also opt for an ejection seat. More images and video after the break.
The Aeon GoPro Gimbal Stabilizer (currently $320 on IndieGoGo) isn’t the first GoPro gimbal stabilizer on the market. There are plenty already in the market like the BeStable SteadyGim3 ($319), Feiyu G3 ($220), Feiyu G4 ($250), and the SCG Glide Gear Scopio ($229). So why a fundraiser campaign for another 3-axis GoPro? Well it looks pretty cool, has a round shaped LCD screen, a thumb activated joystick, and a GoPro accessory mount.
