The Cardsharp4 is built from aluminum and stainless steel

The Cardsharp, designed by Iain Sinclair, is a nifty, little pocket knife that folds as flat as a card. It's less weighty and bulky in your pocket than other foldable knives, but promises cutting power like a scalpel. When we covered the Cardsharp2 back in 2012, it was a stainless steel blade integrated in a polypropylene body. Now, with the introduction of the Cardsharp4, it's received a full metal jacket.  Read More

Third Kind kits add some light for safety and style

Ford revealed the all-new, sixth-generation Mustang last week in a four-content event encompassing major cities like Barcelona, New York and Shanghai.

The Neptune Pine lets users flip their wrist and check a lot more than just the time

When we covered the Neptune Pine watch earlier this year, our first thought was that it looked like the smartwatch that tech lovers have been waiting for. That was immediately followed by a second thought – is this set of rough renderings ever going to lead to an actual watch we can buy? It hasn't happened quite yet, but things are moving in the right direction. Neptune has developed a working prototype and launched a Kickstarter campaign that has attracted a half-million dollars in pledges in just over two weeks.  Read More

The Amphibious Responder was designed to transport rescuers and materials into disaster zo...

Over the past couple of months, our attention has been caught by a couple of monstrous, land/water rescue machines in the form of the Ghe-O Rescue and the ARGO XTI 8x8. The CAMI Amphibious Responder makes three, and it is the largest, most powerful amphibious rescue machine of the bunch.  Read More

The LEDs on the sleeves of the Navigate jacket provide directional cues

We've seen GPS integrated into garments before, but this type of technology has never really caught on, undoubtedly because most folks already have car navigation systems, smartphones and standalone GPS units that do a better job. Maybe the key is in designing a GPS-based garment that offers some advantage over existing options, like pulling your face out of your LCD display so that you no longer have to stumble around the city half blind. The NAVIGATE jacket does just that, using LED guide lights and haptic feedback to spoon-feed you the directions.  Read More

The Boz design is driven by four electric motors mounted at the wheels

The Boz is not a car, and you won't be able to buy it. According to new start-up Zoox, the Boz is the transportation paradigm that comes after the car. It's but a fanciful idea from an unknown start-up for now, but the company believes it can finish its thought by 2021.  Read More

Cross country skiing in the summer

Decades ago, a few individuals looked at what skiers were doing on snow and thought, "Why can't I do that on a board?" Thus, the sport of snowboarding was born, and it eventually exploded in popularity. On the water, the opposite is happening. The sport of paddleboarding has been growing in popularity and some folks are thinking, "Why can't I do that on skis?" With the Slovenian-designed ABH20 skis, you can. Strap a pair on and you can walk on water.  Read More

Mercedes shows the AMG Vision Gran Turismo at the 2013 LA Auto Show

Whereas the concepts of the Frankfurt Motor Show were largely about flash styling and new packaging, the concepts and cars of this month's Los Angeles Auto Show were more focused on forward-thinking technology and green design. Fuel cells, hybrid powertrains and self-driving systems were themes across several models. Of course, there was still plenty of flash and hot styling, too.  Read More
