Tesla_Roadster_0-60_Test

This awesome video shows the 2020 Tesla Roadster taking test riders on accelerations runs. For reference the Tesla Roadster can go from 0-60 mph in 1.8 or 1.9 seconds. Wild. That is the amazing part, the bummer part is the price tag ($200,000 to $250,000).

On to the video of people cursing as they are pinned to the back of their seats.s (more…)

Ever been stuck in the dark with a dead flashlight? I have. What I do recall is having every size and style of battery but the one that the flashlight needed.  Panasonic has a new flashlight that will make it almost impossible to be without the right battery. The “Panasonic Any Battery Light will run on any combination of D, C, AA, or AAA.  You can fill the Any Battery Light with batteries or run it on just one AAA.  Pretty...

The Pyro Pen looks and works like a real Sharpie market, but it has a tiny button which activates a little flame-thrower. Think of it as a good party trick. Is it safe? Pyro’s secret is that the barrels are filled with ‘flash’ paper. A specially-treated tissue paper that burns extremely quickly and is gone in the blink of an eye. Magicians have used flash paper in their acts for decades to get huge reactions from a tiny burst of fire. Every...

Sony PS5 RenderingThe actual images are not real production models, they are renderings from an eager gamer. The Sony PlayStation 5 has had a few leaks. For example, the Sony PS5 will be revealed mid-2019 and should have a March 2020 release date. Specs are reportedly showing 4k graphics at 60 fps coming from an 8-core AMD Ryzen processor. Expect the Sony PS5 to be priced around $500. Video about the PS5 leaks after the break. (more…)

SmartNudge

I personally think the toilet seat should be left in the up (vertical) position. I know, I am going against the grain here but hear me out. Guys will be messy pigs guys and would you rather they ‘accidentally’ pee all over the bowl or seat? The last thing you want to do when visiting the bathroom to sit down, is have to clean off a bunch of disgusting sticky urine. If the seat was up, it would be clean and protected. OK, I am done with my rant about that – on to this cool product for the rest of the world who likes pee on seats.

The SmartN?dge, currently a Kickstarter campaign, is simple genius. This little robot runs on four AA batteries and sticks to the toilet lid via adhesive tape. After 90-seconds of the seat being in the up/vertical position it flicks the seat down. This is great for folks who already have a slow-lowering toilet seat. For those who don’t have a slow-lowering toilet seat, they will hear a loud slam shortly after finishing their business in the bathroom.

Yoda Snow Globe

Looking for the most unique gift for the person who has everything, or just want to have an awesome/strange conversation piece on your desk? The Bradford Exchange STAR WARS Jedi Master Yoda Musical Glitter Globe with Lights and Movie Music ($100) fits the bill. It runs off of three AAA batteries and illuminate Yoda and the base while playing music from the movie.

Rylo 360 Video Camera Top

This tiny action camera, the Rylo, manages to record 6.8K video in 360-degrees. That means you get super high resolution video that never misses a beat. Rylo packs in quite a few features in a very small package, like image stabilization, horizon leveling, front/back picture-in-picture, camera perspective control (after-the-fact), time-lapse, and more. Check out more details, pictures, and a video that sums it all up nicely after the break. (more…)

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...
