Looks like the Stator Fat Wheel Electric Scooter (Launch Edition) is finally available for pre-order. Let’s get the obvious good bits out of the way – this scooter looks amazing, it has a range of up to 80 miles, a top speed of 30 mph, disc brakes, fat tires, a slick handlebar display, and LED lighting. Looks great. Let’s hope this thing performs as good as it looks because the marketing material smells a bit fishy. Here are some of my cringe-worthy favorites. Engineering is an art and we’re perfecting it …world’s...

Craigslist.com is a great place for selling just about anything since 1995. Up until now, Craigslist has only supported the web browser as an interface for selling/buying.

GoPro Max 360

GoPro’s latest camera, GoPro Max, is three cameras in one: a 360 mode camera, a screen-facing vlogging style camera, and a traditional HERO style camera. The latest video stabilization, Max HyperSmooth is amazing. No more jerky videos.

The Russian’s don’t have much luck when it comes to using nuclear power/weapons. Think Chernobyl, Mayak, and Kyshtym. Well, it doesn’t stop there. This week they were testing a liquid-propelled rocket near Nyonoksa when there was an explosion that killed two people and injured at least six more. Shortly after this explosion, there was a spike in radiation levels at over 20x above average. Time to buy some iodine. [

Ring (Amazon) just can’t help running over folks privacy. First, they let law enforcement know where every camera is in use, then they coached law enforcement on how to get user videos without using a warrant,...

Now that the RC quadcopters and drones have proven so stable and reliable, they are growing in size and carrying humans. It was only a matter of time. Heck, the Tesla’s are basically giant versions of the electric RC cars I play with from time-to-time. Looks like these coaxial octocopter versions (and quadcopter styles) will be hitting the sky to race within the next 18-months if all goes to plan. Airspeeder plans to make these retro-looking¬†copters for racing...

Ring Doorbell Sucks

I am a huge fan of the Nest line of cameras – the Nest Cam Outdoor, Nest Cam Indoor (just buy the outdoor version), and the Nest Hello Doorbell. With that said, I will toss them all in the trash if the Google/Nest decide to follow Amazon’s (Ring) level of creepiness with regards to sharing camera data.

Let me back up a bit. If you haven’t read the news about Amazon’s Ring camera creepiness, read on. (more…)
