Currently there is more unknown about the Cleo Drone than is known. Release date? Price? Specs? You get the idea. However, the drone looks pretty cool in the fact that the blades are completely protected and that the size will fit in the pocket. I personally would spend some time modding mine to look like a sprinkled doughnut since it is already 80-percent of the way there. They are calling it an indoor drone. I suspect this is the case because it won’t have to power to compete with much in the way of wind. Will update as more info...

Just like cameras, the best drone is the one you have with you. Most of them tend to be sitting at home due to the lack of portability. While DJI has made strides with their Spark, the controller is another item you have to lug around. While I am pretty confident that if I could fast forward a few more years the technology will be better, smaller, and cheaper. For now we have just a few high quality smaller options. The latest GDU quadcopter, the GDU 02, has made some nice strides. My favorite feature is the fact that the copter and...

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...

GoPro Sushi Conveyor Belt Video

While the title pretty much sums up this one, I rather enjoyed watching it. It is the closest thing to being a fly on a wall, in this case a GoPro on a Japanese sushi conveyor belt. Some people notice it, some don’t. Video after the break. (more…)

Watch out DJI, there is a new kid on the block. The new kid is Skydio and their autonomous flying camera is the R1 ($2,500). The Skydio R1 flies all by itself with no remote control. It is powered by an Nvidia Jetson AI chip, has 12 navigation cameras for obstacle avoidance, and a main 4k camera for tracking a target. the body is made of carbon fiber and aluminum. One of the best parts is that it is built in California. More pictures and video of the Skydio R1 after the break. ...

I am obsessed with dashboard car cameras. I have a camera in every car I own and love the peace of mind they provide should something go awry. Dashcams have provided me with some entertaining videos and have also helped to keep a dishonest person honest during a fender bender. After trying several brands of dashcams I have been loyal to BlackVue for the last 5+ years. The BlackVue cameras are made in Korea, they are high quality, and have rarely failed me. Most dashboard camera brands, who will not be named here today, have let me down...

Wireless LED Endoscope Snake Light Camera 1

Before you swipe on by and ignore this little gadget, think of all of the times you could have used something like this in the past. Ever lost something in the drain, had to look in a tight spot that like an engine, ever wondered how clean or dirty your clothes dryer vent is…? There are a ton of uses for this inexpensive wireless LED endoscope.

For just $20-$30 you can have your very own 720p camera with built-in LED lighting at the end of a 5-meter semi-rigid cable. I know, it doesn’t sound that exciting… until you need just this tool (and don’t have it). In my best infomercial voice “but wait… there’s more… if you order now you also get the following attachments… a hook, a magnet, and an angled mirror!”.

The wireless endoscope works with iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. (more…)

The Apple computer of easy to fly quadcopters, DJI,  is planning on releasing this new drone copter On 1/23/18 but somehow it snuck out a day early. Again, just like Apple. Wink wink. This little guy looks like a hybrid between a Mavic Pro and a Spark and is named the Mavic Air. Specs for the DJI Mavic Air include a 32-megapixel camera, a 3-way gimbal, 4k video capture, and a panorama mode. Gesture control and obstacle avoidance are still included. Flight time is expected to be about 21-mintues and comes in black, red, and white. A...

I have always been a sucker for just about any RC vehicle from planes, helicopter, cars, and boats. The Rover Land & Sea ($99) checks two boxes as it can go on land and in the water. This amphibious rc has a camera that can rotate, headlights, and underwater LED’s.    ...

Taking pictures of your dog can be tricky. They can have the attention span of a gnat, unless of course there is a ball involved. This clever smartphone gadget clips on your phone without blocking the camera and holds a tennis ball which guarantees Fido’s attention. Check out some of the dog selfies that were taken with the Pooch Selfie ($12.99).       ...
