The Jim Beam Smart Decanter ($35) pours whiskey on voice command. The voice is from Fred Noe a 7th generation master distiller at Jim Beam. It won’t give you the weather like other voice assistants but it will give you cheeky replies and of course bourbon. “…the decanter includes a sleek compartment for bourbon storage and voice command capabilities. Unlike other smart home devices, “JIM”...

Up until now, most of the wearable camera options have been pretty dorky at best. Think Google Glass or Snapchat Spectacles. Two solid thumbs down.  The PogoCam has made an easy to use camera that is small enough to add on to your existing glasses (translation –...

BioLite FirePit In Action

We are big fans of the BioLite CampStove 2 and have used it on several trips with great results. The BioLite FirePit $199 (currently on Kickstarter with May 2018 shipping) continues on the tradition of air injected conbustion. This is BioLite’s biggest oven/stove system yet, perfect for sitting around as a campfire or cooking with wood or charcoal. All this goodness with less smoke and a more efficient fire. Sign me up. More after the break. (more…)

The crowded market of Bluetooth speakers continues to grow. Bose is adding a new speaker to their SoundLink line with a tiny/portable speaker, the SoundLink Micro ($110). The Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker is just 1.5-inches high and 3.75-inches square and weighs 0.64-pounds. We can expect to see this speaker for sale around...

Drones, and DJI specifically, have come a long way in the last few years. Flight distances, telemetry, obstacle avoidance, silky smooth gimbals, high quality cameras, and size reduction are just a few of the areas that have improved massively. DJI has just addressed two more issues in an effort to perfect the quadcopter with their latest DJI Mavic Pro Platinum. The Mavic Pro Platinum has an 11% gain in flight time (30 minutes) and a 60% reduction in noise (4dB less). The

A new Nest thermostat has landed, the Nest Thermostat E. Not sure about the name but let’s talk about what is different/new. Not much. The Nest Thermostat E now has a frosted LCD screen, a white bezel, a slightly smaller diameter (3.19 instead of 3.3). It also comes, out of the box, with a pre-set schedule to start saving money right away. TaDaaaaa. ...

Range is up to 200ft and there are 3-speeds. Check them out at Amazon or the C3 site....

If you have any nostalgia for the 1985 Teddy Ruxpin this might be on your radar. If you have no idea what Teddy Ruxpin is, let me fill you in. Simply put he was a teddy bear that had a moving mouth/eyes, speaker, and a cassette player built inside of it. That is it. The new 2017 Teddy Ruxpin now has bluetooth, (arguably creepy) LCD eyes, a free iOS and Android app, and three built-in stories. ...

The SOUNDBOKS speaker is portable… just like a YETI Tundra 65 Cooler is “portable”. They both have handles anyway. That isn’t the point really as this speaker system claims to be the loudest portable speaker (119dB). Not sure if that is the case though, considering the DiamondBoxx Model XL says it goes to 120dB. I digress. The
