VanMoof Smart S BikeIf you haven’t heard of VanMoof Electric Bikes you may be missing out on arguably some of the most beautiful electric bikes out there. Not only are they good looking, but they also have some serious antitheft tools built-in. Read more for details of their latest X2 and S2 bikes. (more…)

Currently there is more unknown about the Cleo Drone than is known. Release date? Price? Specs? You get the idea. However, the drone looks pretty cool in the fact that the blades are completely protected and that the size will fit in the pocket. I personally would spend some time modding mine to look like a sprinkled doughnut since it is already 80-percent of the way there. They are calling it an indoor drone. I suspect this is the case because it won’t have to power to compete with much in the way of wind. Will update as more info...

This nifty tool is a traditional 16-foot tape measure with a built-in 50-foot laser tape measure. Yep, that is it. No need to read any further. Hey, I said you didn’t have to ready any further. Ok, since you are still here – The General Tools LTM1 sticks with the old-school tape measure for short-span precision measurements. For longer runs you can use the Class II laser (up to 50′)....

The taste of a “true” free range chicken egg is much better than what we typically get at the grocery store. The yolk is a darker, deeper yellow and stands up in the pan. Once you have had a good egg it makes it tough to eat the sad, pale, inexpensive eggs that most folks purchase. Don’t take my word for it, buy four chickens, this chicken coop and let your hens roam the yard and eat feed and bugs. This chicken coop is easy to assemble, has ventilated mesh, and an easy cleanup tray. If this chicken coop doesn’t...

Smatree Charging Case For Apple Watch Open

If you have an Apple Watch and are like me, you have some sort of bedside charging stand for your watch. At the end of the day, I put my Apple Watch on its charging stand so it is ready in the morning. When I travel I find myself having to disassemble the stand to remove the watch charging cable so I can charge while not at home. Not ideal, and sure I could just buy another charging cable, but I think I found something that suits me better.

The Smatree Charging Case for Apple Watch is a soft leather zippered case that not only protects your watch while packed but charges it as well. It has a 3,000 man battery that can charge your watch 4-6 times. You will have to buy another apple charging cable to put inside of this case/charger but well worth it when on the road. No more plugging in or removing my old cable. This Apple Watch charging case also has an external USB port for charging other devices All this for just $29 here. (more…)

I had no idea Epson (the printer people) started making FPV Smart Glasses designed for the drone market. In this case they are made specifically for the DJI line of drones. And from a light dive into the reviews it turns out they are pretty darn good. Unlike the bulky DJI Goggles, the Epson BT-300FPV glasses do not block your line of site. The Epson DJI goggles come preloaded with the DJI GO app, can record your flight video, are just 2.5-ounces, and have a 6-hour battery life. The perfect complement to your DJI drone, Moverio BT-300FPV...

Let me start off by saying this strange little electric folding bicycle isn’t going to replace your main bike. The JupiterBike 2.0 is built for extreme portability and mobility, for example; in the trunk of your car, your airplane, boat, or RV. The Jupiter Electric Folding Bike can go 15-mph and has a range of 10-miles on a single charge. Not to shabby for something that can find in a backpack. More pictures and video of the JupiterBike 2.0 after the break. ...

Amsterdam has turned an underused portion of their Science Park and converted it into a startup incubator called Startup Village. I like the idea of repurposing old shipping containers into houses, garages, storage units, etc… Better than going straight to the scrap yard. The Startup Village (a bit apocalypse looking) was designed by Dutch architect Julius Taminiau. One big consideration with this shipping container startup village is that it was designed to be temporary. They wanted to be able to pack it up after a handful of years. The...

UPS is putting more electric and hybrid vehicles on the road each day. They currently have over 9,000 alternative technology vehicles on the road around the world with 700 hybrids and over 300 all-electric vehicles. The number should climb as investment and technology continue to improve. The cool trucks pictured above are custom built by a UK startup company named Arrival. These modular electric delivery trucks should hit the UK and Paris this year with a 150 mile range. If nothing else, they are the cutest delivery trucks I have seen...

Google Assistant Making Phone Calls

This video from Google’s I/O 2018 developer conference shows off how far the AI voice assistant has come. The AI piece is impressive and works well in these samples, but I am more impressed with the realistic voice and speak disfluencies. Have a listen after the break and prepare to have your mind blown.
