Don’t feel like wiring up a new doorbell but need to add extra receivers? Or just have a tricky install that you would like to avoid. This wireless doorbell kit comes with 2 receivers and 1 transmitter. Pretty standard, but there is more. The receivers are paired and relay the wireless signal for longer ranges. For example; you could have one receiver in the house and one in the garage. Never miss the door again. Another cool feature is the doorbell button – it never needs batteries or wiring.

Imagine bad guys break into your house or business and a traditional alarm system sounds. Not a huge deal, they know they have at least 10 minutes before the calvary is on the way. In other words, they still get to steal things and exit without much difficulty.

Well, this clever idea changes things quite a bit. Once the alarm is triggered the space goes from normal to zero visibility in just 5 seconds. A thick fog fills each room and the bad guys only have one option… to leave the building. More videos of this awesome fog alarm system after the break. (more…)

Police in China have been using facial recognition glasses for a while now. I know, great news right? As if the censorship, internet traffic spying, and general oppression isn’t enough. To be fair America is tied for second in this race to spy on its own citizens. Not cool. Well, China is doubling down on these facial recognition glasses which must mean that they like the results. The glasses are made by LLVision Technology and are used for things like spotting known criminals, checking travelers registration, vehicle registration...

Shoei Neotec II

If you have ever ridden motorcycles in a group setting you know how fun, and frustrating, it can be. It is fun because you get to share the ride experience with friends and are more visible riding in a group. It is a bit frustrating at times when you are in the middle of the pack and need to stop for a restroom break and have no way of communicating with other riders around you.

One way to solve this is to bolt on a SENA Bluetooth Helmet Headset onto your existing helmet. Not the most elegant helmet addition, but it works. Well the folks at SENA and SHOEI have joined forces for a seamless helmet communication system, the Neotec II Helmet.

SENA’s exclusive SRL Communication System is tailored specifically to the NEOTEC II helmet. When installed, the SRL is virtually undetectable from the outside of the helmet, and functions with a simple 3-button control. Chat with other riders via bluetooth intercom, listen to music, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions, and much more with the SRL. Learn more about the SRL here.

The NEOTEC II is an every-occasion helmet with the adaptability to excel no matter where your next journey takes you. The convenient “flip-up” versatility of a true two-in-one helmet combined with next-level aerodynamics, an internal sun shield, Pinlock® EVO fog-resistant system, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL (SHOEI Rider Link) Communication System, the NEOTEC II is the pinnacle of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.
