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.    ...

SCORKL 10 Minute Mini Scuba Tank Diving

Diving with a scuba tank is great. You just have to be certified and carry a ton of gear with you. Snorkeling is great but you are pretty much limited to a few feet of diving. This Kickstarter project, SCORKL, is basically a mini scuba tank.

The SCORKL will allow up to 10 minutes of dive time and is small enough to fit in a backpack. The tank can be refilled with a manual hand pump or off of a larger scuba tank with the refill adapter. Of course, you will want to get the case, two SCORKL’s, the hand pump, refill adapter, etc… The coolest kit with two tanks will cos about $796. The only flaw I see is that the pressure gauge is on the opposite side of the mouthpiece and you can’t see it while diving.

The stainless steel garden hose is made of 304 18 gauge stainless steel and are guaranteed puncture proof. They are also cool to the touch...

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...

Paul Allen, cofounder of Microsoft, has been busy with his airplane project, Stratolaunch. This monster airplane started back in 2011 and while photos are starting to emerge the plane is still grounded. Burt Rutan, aerospace engineer, has gotten the plane this far but has yet to take it on a test flight. The Stratolaunch has a 285-foot wingspan, six 747 jet engines, 26 wheels, and can carry 250,000 pounds of fuel. The name hints at the purpose which is for low earth orbit flights and launching rockets into space. Eventually the Stratolaunch...
