Jeff Anning was scoping out waves to surf at his local spot back in 2008 when somebody first buzzed past him on a motorized long board. In that moment the seed for what was to become Evolve Skateboards was planted. Since the launch of its own first generation Electric Pintail in 2012, Evolve has continued to refine its idea of what electric skateboards should be. This most recently culminated in the 2 in 1 Carbon Series, which has gone on to become the company's biggest seller by some margin. We have spent the last few weeks cruising the streets with this zippy little number, and apart from having a hell of a time, we found it to be a more than practical way of getting around.  Read More

The SipaBoard is inflatable, plus it has an integrated jet drive

While stand-up paddleboards are usually a lot of fun to use, they can be a hassle to transport and store. That's why we've seen ones that can be folded up and disassembled. The SipaBoard, however, takes yet another approach – it's inflatable. An onboard electric motor pumps the air into it for you, plus it also powers an integrated jet drive that provides paddlers with a boost.  Read More

The Ultratide works with the Surfline app on the user's smartphone

Surfline is an established service that provides information on those conditions, in the form of alerts on a smartphone app. Now, Surfline has partnered with Nixon to provide such alerts on an easier-to-access sports watch, known as the Ultratide.  Read More

Is this the MacBook we've been waiting for? Gizmag reviews Apple's new 12-inch MacBook (Ph...

After more than four years of identical-looking MacBook Airs, Apple finally made a next-generation MacBook that ticks all those boxes we've been asking for.

Parisian architecture firm OXO Architectes, in association with Nicolas Laisné Associés, recently revealed its proposal for a futuristic mixed-use tower – or "vertical city" – that promotes sustainable high density living in the Sahara desert. The conceptual project calls for the tower to be run using renewable sources including rainwater collection, solar power, and geothermal energy.  Read More

In November last year, British headphone maker Reid Heath Audio (RHA) released a new flagship in-ear headphone model called the T10i that featured interchangeable tuning filters which altered the frequency response from the company's reference signature to focus on either lows or highs. The high fidelity, noise isolating earphones went on to earn the company a Red Dot Award in the Product Design category. RHA has recently added a sibling that's sonically the same but doesn't have an inline control and is a little cheaper, and it's this T10 model that Gizmag has been taking for a test drive.  Read More
