The software allows for users to see...

The Mavic Pro Platinum has an 11% gain in flight time (30 minutes) and a 60% reduction in noise (4dB less). The

The FrontRow Wearable Lifestyle Camera ($399) is a tad less cringey than the Google Glasses. I am not sure I would want to have a conversation with someone wearing a camera/microphone pointed at me the entire time. I guess I am not the target customer because I am sure there are voyeuristic folks who will love the idea...

This video surfaced at the GoPro Awards and shows a crafty bald eagle stealing a camouflaged GoPro camera. The Camera was set up by GlacierChange researcher Matt Beedle in Juneau, Alaska where he was trying to get videos of bald eagles feeding. He got that, and more. Video after the break.

Matthew’s dad had him toss an extra carabiner down to get...

Imagine paddling along in beautiful Orange County, California when a helicopter comes along and warns you that you that you are surrounded by about 15 great white sharks. No matter how relaxing the guys voice on the loud speaker was… that had to be a scary moment. And yes, this is technology related, we have helicopters, composite paddle boards, and a FLIR camera system. Enjoy the video after the break.

Amazon continues with their quest to take over the world. Their latest product is a camera named the Amazon Echo Look ($200). After watching the Echo Look informational video, I realize that I am clearly not the target market. This isn’t a security camera but more of a wardrobe helper. Ok? Amazon Echo is still built-in so you can ask about the weather,...
