As a kid I remember using a magnifying glass to start tiny fires and burn patterns into wood. Good times. Apparently the builder of this product, the Febo, had a similar love of focusing the suns power. The Febo makes engraving wood surfaces with magnified solar power easy and sorta stylish. Prices start at $44 and they even have cool stencils and protective UV glasses as well. ...

If last years hover boards are starting to collect dust and aren’t getting used much, it may be time for a chair conversion. The HoverSeat ($89) is not only practical and fun but it is also safer than the standing model. We have all seen the videos of people falling on hover boards and many of us have actually experienced it first hand. Some of us even received injuries. Shout out to Margie. The HoverSeat...

360-degree cameras continue to improve while shrinking in size and price. So, no surprise the technology is finding its way to different devices, in this case sunglasses. The Orbi Prime is a stylish set of sunglasses loaded up with four HD cameras that can capture 90 minutes of 360-degree video. The action junkies out there can now keep their hands free while bombing the mountain on a snowboard of flying in their wing suits. The best part is that this 360-degree sunglass video is stabilized...
