If you have ever wondered how to shoot 360-degree pictures and video with your iPhone then pay attention. You simply strap on the Giroptic iO ($249) 360-degree camera onto your iPhone and the rest is pretty familiar. The camera does the real-time image processing for some pretty amazing video and pictures. Not sure if this is any better than the Insta360 which is about...

  Update as of 1/12/2017. After raising nearly $34-million in funding and pre-orders the Lily Drone Project is dead. Refunds to come for those who placed pre-orders. As much fun as it is flying/controlling your own quadcopter/drone there are times when “follow me” technology is the way to go. I think that is one of the biggest downfalls of the other quadcopter in the market that don’t offer this tech, like the new DJI Phantom 3. The Lily...

It seems like the tried and true ballpoint pen should be pretty dialed in by now. You know, reliable. How often have you been dong the crazy scribbles thing trying to wake up a gunked up pen? I just did it yesterday and quickly tossed that pen in the trash. Enough. Time for the Tombow AirPress Ballpoint Pen ($9) which uses a pressurized technology for almost anywhere writing. The Tobow AirPress can write...

Unfortunately it looks as if the selfie is here to stay, so you might as well improve your selfie game. This tiny quadcopter hopes to take a few users away from the infamous selfie stick. The AirSelfie is small enough that it fits inside of a cellphone case. Simply pop it out of the case and have it fly up to 66-feet away where its 5MP camera can take pictures or video. The pictures are stored onboard with 4GB’s of memory.  Flight...

Two things I like very much. Flashlights and knives. This Nestsun Tactical Flashlight Knife ($15) is fairly priced and has pretty good reviews as well. The flashlight is powered by a rechargeable lithium 18650 battery and uses a 250lm cree LED. There are three lighting options (high, low, and flashing), an adjustable zoom ring, and an expected...

Ever heard of Opinel knives? Yep, me neither but it turns out they have been making great EDC knives  in France since the late 1800’s. This yellow (or grey) handled beauty adds a new trick to an otherwise traditional knife in the form of two screwdriver bits. The bits are nestled on the sides of the handle and fit in the end for use. The Opinel N Degree9 DIY Knife is a steal at just $26 here. With...
