Kids choose between Samsung S6 and Apple iPhone 6

Which is better, the iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S6? If adults were involved it would most likely be a deeper discussion about the OS, hardware, their gadget ecosystem, etc… What if it were up to the kids?

Well this video, by Business Insider, asks the question of a handful of kids.  They were handed an iPhone 6 and a Samsung Galaxy S6… which would they choose?

Pocket Shot Slingshot

Whether you are hunter (seriously), survivalist, or just a backyard plinker the Pocket Shot ($25) might be something to throw in your EDC bag. It can shot at up to 350ft per second and is quicker and easier to load than a standard slingshot. As with anything getting accurate shots will take some practice.

The Pocket Shot comes with two slings (standard and pro) and can store ammo inside and is waterproof. Video after the break.

Broadcasters who use GoPro Hero cameras for unique immersive shots should be pretty excited about the GoPro HeroCast Transmitter. There are two versions the HeroCast and the HeroCast BacPac.

The HeroCast transmitter makes it so that broadcasters can access and use the great video live via a wireless feed. In other words they don’t have to wait for post-production video editing to see what they are shooting. The video is transmitted in full HD 1080p or 720p at 60 frames per second with H.264 encoding.

The GoPro wireless transmitter was created in conjunction with Vislink is smaller and lighter than anything currently available.  Either version will work with the Hero3+ and Hero4 Black cameras and comes standard with 40 minutes of battery life (longer if you use external power). Yours for just $7,500. Ouch.

MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR 3

I have always been a fan of the crazy MV Agusta styling. Heck if it wasn’t for the fact that you have to be a tiny person to fit on their bikes I would already own at least one. I am 6’3″ and my legs end up above the gas tank. Not cool. The latest MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR is a thing of beauty. Check out the short seat, 3-pipe exhaust, white spoked rims, fat rear tire, and crazy overall styling. Drooling.

For the horse jockeys amongst us, read on. If nothing else check out the stunning photos of the Brutal 800 Dragster RR.

RFID Hidden Vent SafeQuickSafe Vent Safe RFID

Whether you are hiding valuables or a pistol for defensive measures the QuickSafe Vent Safe ($219) is a pretty clever hiding place. I seriously doubt the typical crack-head burglar would have a chance at finding this stash.

The Vent Safe fits between your standard 16-inch studs and uses an RFID card to unlock the contents. Video of the QuickSafe Air Vent RFID Safe after the break.

Apple Watch Unboxing Video

If you are anxiously waiting until midnight to order your Apple Watch, here is an unboxing video to help tide you over. Florence Santrot of Metronews has gotten ahold of an Apple Watch and gives users a better idea of what to expect upon opening the box. I am glad the charging cable is nice and long. Video after the break.

Ultima Evolution

The power to weight equation is the not-so-secret sauce behind some of the quickest supercars on the road. Lots of power and very little weight often means you are hitting some pretty good 0-60mph and quarter mile times. The British have just smacked down ALL of the pretentious supercars running around Hollywood with the Ultima Evolution.

Ultima Evolution Engine

The current “fastest accelerating” car is was the Ferrari LaFerrari which gets to 60mph in 2.6 seconds with a 9.7 second/149mph 1/4 mile. The Ultima Evolution gets to 60mph in an amazing 2.3 seconds with a 9.2 second/156mph 1/4 mile. That is simply insane. Read on for more details and pictures.

DJI Phantom 3

DJI is on fire these days and has just announced the release of their latest quadcopter the Phantom 3. Similar body as the Phantom 2 with an option for a 4K camera. The Phantom 3 comes in two models with the main only difference being the camera and the price tag, the Advanced (1080P 60FPS) and the Professional (4K 30FPS).

The video feed is handled, similar to the Inspire 1, via Lightbridge technology and sends back a 720P video at ranges of up to a mile. Watch the Apple inspired Phantom 3 promo video after the break.
