Just like cameras, the best drone is the one you have with you. Most of them tend to be sitting at home due to the lack of portability. While DJI has made strides with their Spark, the controller is another item you have to lug around. While I am pretty confident that if I could fast forward a few more years the technology will be better, smaller, and cheaper. For now we have just a few high quality smaller options. The latest GDU quadcopter, the GDU 02, has made some nice strides. My favorite feature is the fact that the copter and...

The SodaStream has dominated the DIY water carbonation market. They work pretty good, are priced fairly, and make loud embarrassing noises when in use. The perfect addition to any party I suppose. All fine and dandy for the masses, but what if you want something a bit fancier. A bit quieter. Check out the AARKE Premium Carbonator ($169). It is shiny stainless steel (or matte black), has 3 independent safety valves, and includes a nontoxic PET bottle. If nothing else, it looks cool and it is considerably quieter than the SodaStream.   ...

Fat tire bikes are pretty cool but awfully tough to get up the mountain with all of that rolling resistance. Sure, you could electrify the bike and make the rear wheel assist with the climb, but the folks at Easy Motion made an AWD e-bike. The Easy Motion Evo AWD Big Bud Pro + ($3,499) has added a 350-watt rear hub motor and a 250-watt hub motor up front to their 2-wheel drive fat bike. “The drive system has four modes. You can run with 100 percent front or back wheel if you like, set it to AWD which proportions power between the...

Karate_Kid_Motorcycle_Chop

This prank video takes up the production value a notch or two. The prank shows a smaller guy reminiscent of Karate Kid who is about to get bullied by a motorcycle riding “tough guy”. The prank is made to advertise the upcoming Cobra Kai series, a continuation of the Karate Kid. Check it out after the break. (more…)

I have an EV car. I like my EV car. I like shopping at stores that have EV chargers (mainly ones with free charging). I figure I am only in the store for about 20-30 minutes and I am spending money, 20-minutes of electricity costs very little. There is a Target store a bit out of the way from my house, but I will shop there if given the chance because they offer free charging. Well, things are about...

Starting a fire has just gotten easier. The Trailblazer Fire Starter Sticks ($5.99) with Match Heads light like a match and burn like a starter log. These super-matches are made of compressed wood and eliminate the need for starter woods (kindling, garwood, etc…). Each Trailblazer Fire Starter Stick will burn for 7-10 minutes. As far as fire starters go these are pretty eco-friendly as they are made of only compressed wood chips and paraffin wax, no synthetic adhesives, solvents, or other chemicals. ...

Remember the winner of the “most innovative knife” from the 2004 Blade Show? Yeah, me either but this is one cool knife. This knife is quite a conversation starter and even a deal at under $40. Originally designed by Ed Van Hoy as an everyday carry knife with portability and precision in mind. The knife blade swivels out sideways which is very different from most knives. It has an ambidextrous clip, a stainless steel blade, and a special locking mechanism. You know you want it. Get it here.    ...

If you missed out on buying your 21 or 23-window VW bus while they were inexpensive, too bad. VW bus pricing has skyrocketed with people paying well in to the 6-figures for a rust bucket 23 window. Well, here is your chance to get a beautiful VW bus in your garage, granted it is under 3-feet tall. This electrified Volkswagen bus for kids is made by Beyond Infinity is loaded with goodies. It includes two opening doors, two forward speeds, reverse, replica dashboard, a cup holder, working headlights and taillights, and even some storage....

Imagine that, my two favorite things in one gadget – Star Wars and popcorn. This awesome Star Wars Death Star Popcorn Maker ($59) uses hot air for perfect popping. The Death Star top also works as a serving bowl. ...

Coast Cycles Buzzraw Stealth E1000 Electric Bike 37

A throwback bike of yesteryear that could pass itself off as just a pedal bike. It is a pedal bike, but it happens to have 1000-watts of juice and a Bafang mid-drive motor. That just means that this little stealth black electric bike can hit 37-mph! The Coast Cycles Buzzraw E1000 will set you back about $3,300, but hey… life is short. Heck, you could even grow a man-pony like the guy on the bike. On second thought, don’t grow a man-pony. (more…)
