Imagine an electric guitar with an embedded iPhone dock, lithium ion batteries, built-in Class-D 20W amplification, Peerless speakers, and loaded guitar app. You would be imagining the new Fusion Smart Guitar. The app allows users to control the amp effects, run a looping station, and record jam sessions over 8-tracks.  I wonder why this took so long to become a reality. Expect the price to be under $500 with deliveries starting in March 2016. Video of the Fusion Smart Guitar after the break. ...

The saying goes… the best camera is the one you have with you. It is true. And while I wish I could/would carry my DSLR camera with me at all times it just isn’t practical. So, a full 95-percent of my photos are shot with my Apple iPhone. Well things are about to change in a big way. The Light L16 Camera ($1,699, minus $400 if you order this month) has 16 individual cameras and is the world’s first multi-aperture computational camera. What the heck does that mean? It means that you get the control of a DSLR in a form...

The Slap It, a butt shape lamp that is activated when you spank or slap it, has been out for a while now. How do you top such an amazing product? You lower the price (was over $1k) down to a manageable $230 and also make it turn on when pinched. If you buy them in 3-packs they are slightly cheaper and you can create a butt wall like the one in the video below. ...

Apple announced a few new items yesterday including the iPad Pro, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and a totally redesigned Apple TV. The new unit is called “The New Apple TV”. Really? Apple, if you are listening, clear out the old model and just call the new one “Apple TV”. Things are starting to get confusing over there. I digress. The new Apple TV is a pretty large leap for an already good product. You now get a new remote with a glass touchpad, integrated Siri voice control, 6-buttons (no more left, right, up, down),...

The latest Router to hit the market from Asus is the RT-AC5300.

Digital media is the new norm. Kids these days barely know what a CD or cassette tape is. Forget about vinyl records. Hopping off of my old-man soapbox. This amazing Cassette Coffee Table was build by Ross Langley for Rob Ireland and is basically a giant cassette tape on steel legs. The table has removable remote and bottle holders and the label can drawn/written on as it is made of whiteboard material. I want one! ...

No surprises that the inexpensive Google Chromecast is quite popular. Heck, it is only $30. If you aren’t familiar with Chromecast it is an HDMI dongle that plugs directly into a television. It lets users stream content from their smartphone or tablet to the TV using the WiFi network. If you happen to have a WiFi dead zone you were pretty much screwed. Until now. Google has just released an Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast. This $15 adapter connects directly into the wall outlet for power and then to the Chromecast via USB and your...
