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,...

When it comes to a good cardio workout, jumping rope is pretty difficult to beat. Not only does it get the heart pumping, but it strengthens your legs, arms, and core muscles. All this, and your coordination gets some fine tuning. This Smart Jump Rope, the Smart Rope, comes in black, chrome, or gold and in many different sizes. With the included app you can track your jumps, calories burned, time, and even get training recommendations. “Unlike...

This mammoth RC truck, the Mammuth Rewarron, is somewhere between a UTV and a go-kart. It is over 6.5-feet long, weighs 375-pounds, and is powered by a single cylinder 4-stroke 270cc engine. Not sure where it is made but I believe it is from Hungary. Price tag = $5,500. Having something this big that I have to walk next to to take it to the park seems awesome, but not perfect. If only the Rewarron was just a bit bigger, then I could ride it around a bit. I’m not hoping to replace...

Let me start off with a bit of spoiler alert – both boards are great and the comparisons are tough to do in an apples-to-apples fashion. With that said, let’s discuss the merits of both the Boosted Boards Dual+ (with extended battery) and the Evolve Skateboards Carbon GT. Read on for details. ...

There are quite a few options available for monitoring your heart rate but this might be the best. The Kardia Portable EKG ($99) can get a medical-grade EKG in about 30 seconds by simply placing your fingertips on the sensors. Great for a quick check to see if your heart rhythm is normal of if atrial fibrillation is defected. The sensor not only monitors your heart rate (via an iOS or Android app) but it can also store it for sharing with your doctor. Video of the Kardia...

I have a Boosted Boards Electric Skateboard and I absolutely love it. It is great for short commutes and just goofing around. If I had to find a negative on the Boosted Board, I guess it would be the battery under the belly of the longboard. Not that it bothers me or I even notice it. Just saying. This Kickstarter project (lands in May 2017) coming from Germany, the JayKay e-Truck plans...

The Raspberry Pi platform has been wildly successful selling over 12-million units since the first launch. The $5 Rasberrry Pi Zero was quite a hit but had most users adding Wi-Fi or Bluetooth modules and antennas. The latest, Raspberry Pi Zero W, has both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a Proant antenna, and a CYW43438...

For the non-youngsters amongst us, this keyboard should spark some nostalgia for the typewriters of yesterday. The round keycaps and classic looks are just easy on the eyes. Take this old school look and add in wireless (pair up to three devices simultaneously), or wired modes, Apple Magic keyboard layout, multiple colors, and mechanical keys and you have the Lofree Keyboard. Prices and availability are a bit of a mystery at the moment. ...

Apparently the 1980’s trend of big “portable” boomboxes is making a comeback, with some modern technology of course. Think Bluetooth portable speaker on steroids, basically a Bluetooth Boombox. Apparently this trend has been developing steam… news to me. Some how I ended reading online reviews of the Aiwa Exos-9 ($299) and had to dig a bit...

  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...
