Just when I started looking at the Google WiFi System I bumped into the Portal WiFi Router. Both have the ability to use mesh networking for expanding out to dead spots. The main difference, is that Portal uses something called FastLanes which enables your WiFi network to operate in a special portion of the 5GHz spectrum that was originally reserved for weather radio systems....

If you have some 3S or 4S Lipo batteries laying around you might want to check out the Volantex Vector 80 Remote Control Boat ($199). It comes with everything you need, sans batteries, and is fast, very fast. For the money this is a lot of boat. The boat is shipped “ready to run” and is powered by a water cooled 1800KV brushless motor. Even the ESC is water cooled. The Recent Vector 80 RC Boat is 81cm long and 21cm wide.    ...

Apple isn’t always first to the game with gadgets, but they are often one of the better options. I am sincerely hoping this is the case with their latest entry into the smart speaker arena. Apples latest gadget is the HomePod ($349) which is landing in the US, UK, and Australia in December of this year. The speaker does similar tricks as the Alexa and Google Home speakers but should blow them all away when it comes to sound quality. At least that is the pitch. You simply talk to the speaker like you would with Siri on your iOS...

Let me start off by professing my love of my Ergo Auto Pet Feeder 2000GS (you can read that review here). While it is close to perfect, it isn’t “smart” and doesn’t have remote feeding. With that said it does the job just fine and hasn’t failed me for over 15 years. That says something. Now on to the RolliPet Smart Pet Feeder ($139)...

This chubby little robotic fish is the world’s first bionic wireless underwater drone. This fish drone is named BIKI and it has a 4k camera, a wireless controller, a Smartphone app for control, and a battery life of up to 150 minutes. The BIKI isn’t going to complete an deep sea missions but it can dive to 196 feet and will even come to the surface when its battery is running low. Currently the BIKI Fish Drone is living on Kickstarter with an estimated price of

This Kiwano KO1 Scooter looks pretty cool and has some impressive features but it is still in the developmental phase. Hopefully it hits the market and with a price that isn’t too ridiculous. First, a bit about the Kiwano KO1 Scooter; Designed and engineered in the UK 4.4Ah/55.5V lithium ion battery 1000 watt motor 8.5″ wheel Weight – 44lbs Built in kickstand Foldable and adjustable foot pegs LCD display to show...

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,...
