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

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...

The folks at Google’s (or Alphabet if you prefer) have come out with a new camera, the Nest Cam IQ ($299). So what is different between this camera which is currently available for preorder and the Nest Cam and Nest Cam Outdoor? What’s new with the Nest Cam IQ – More powerful 6-core processor Bigger price tag – $299 (vs $199) Better connectivity Familiar face alerts with Nest Aware (currently it just recognizes if it is...

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
