DJI is often called the “Apple” of the drone world. They do make good quadcopters. I try to avoid buying items made in China (not easy and I am nowhere near 100%… not even close, yet) for many reasons. Too many reasons to list here. With that said, I do have a DJI Mavic Mini and it is a great little product. However, it appears they have stepped on a technology patent owned by Autel...

Not that hiding a tiny Micro SD card should be that difficult, but if you really want to take your hiding game to the next level – you need a Covert Coin ($25). The Covert Coin is precision machined from a real coin, in this case, a US quarter. Each coin is shipped with an opening device. The coin is almost impossible to open without said tool. ...

blowfish-a3-weapon-drone

Imagine that, China selling anything to make a buck. In this case, China is selling fully autonomous weaponized drones to the Middle East. These drones, including the Blowfish A3, are capable of conducting swarm style lethal-attacks on targets.

These drones are made by Zhuhai Ziyan of Guangdong, check them out in the video after the break. (more…)

Imagine a drone that isn’t much bigger than your cellphone. Imagine a drone that weighs just 0.55-lbs and can shoot 2.7k video (at 30fps). Still not impressed? How about a 30 minute flight time, 3- axis gimbal, stabilized camera, and a 2.5-mile range. This is the DJI Mavic Mini. Pretty awesome for such a pocket-sized drone. My favorite part, other than the battery life and range, is the fact that it is small/light enough to dodge the silly...

Tesla Sentry Mode Cookie Monster

The recently released, and already updated, Tesla Sentry Mode is a security feature for its EVs that uses the front-facing dash cam and the side cameras to record and dissuade break-ins. Apparently, every car should have a sentry mode as Tesla vehicles have already caught thieves and people damaging cars.

The latest story from ABC 7 news, is about San Francisco-based Jed Franklin and how his Tesla has already helped to make an arrest. He received an alert on his phone, via the Tesla app, that said his Sentry Mode had been activated. Upon arriving at his car he found a broken window. After downloading the cars security camera video he saw a clear image of the suspect’s face and the license plate of his car. This evidence was handed over to the police, who subsequently made an arrest.

The more this type of thing happens, and makes the news, the more criminals will take note. Tesla break-ins may become a thing of the past. Check out a few of the Tesla “caught in the act” videos after the break. (more…)

Sure, technically it is a “coin purse” that has a couple of snaps so you can clip it on to your backpack or belt. But the EASYANT Coin Purse ($39) is also a “skull thumper” or self defense weapon similar to the old soap in the sock trick. You get the idea. ...

FLIR Systmes, the makers of thermal cameras, have launched their latest drone – the Black Hornet 3. The Black Hornet 3 is a tiny drone marketed to the military, government agencies, and first responders. This Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS) is the world’s smallest combat-proven nano-Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). Just a bunch of words saying it is a tiny drone. The Black Hornet 3 weighs just 32 grams, has a 1.2 mile range, and...

MarkRober_Bait_Package

There have been plenty of booby trapped bait packages set out for unsuspecting porch thieves, but this one takes the cake. Mark Rober, who is pretty crafty in the shop designed the ultimate booby trapped bait box using a bunch of tech.

This package starts off with an Apple HomePod box, a 3d printed frame, four phones for GPS and video recording, a pound of fine glitter that spins out in all directions, and (my favorite) a fart spray device. Genius. Watch this video, after the break, showing porch pirates getting destroyed. (more…)

The Pyro Pen looks and works like a real Sharpie market, but it has a tiny button which activates a little flame-thrower. Think of it as a good party trick. Is it safe? Pyro’s secret is that the barrels are filled with ‘flash’ paper. A specially-treated tissue paper that burns extremely quickly and is gone in the blink of an eye. Magicians have used flash paper in their acts for decades to get huge reactions from a tiny burst of fire. Every...
