The Space Monkey cloud storage solution

Most cloud storage solutions like Dropbox and Google Drive give users storage space at a premium, but the actual data is stored in a data center in some remote location.

This allows it to offer more data than traditional cloud storage solutions for a much lower price.  Read More

The VOTO fuel-cell charger gets power from cooking fires

Just because someone is getting close to nature doesn't necessarily mean they need to ditch their smartphone. However, keeping a device charged while in the great outdoors is not always the easiest thing to do. After all, those trees don't come equipped with power outlets. We've already seen the BioLite stove that generates its own power. A new product called VOTO performs a similar function, but with any cooking fire.  Read More

PLAiR is designed to make streaming video to a TV easier

Whether your video service of choice is YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, or one of the many other choices, internet video is huge. For some users, watching videos on their smaller computer monitor does the job, but others prefer to view their movies and videos on their larger TV screen.

The biggest thing that supposedly separates PLAiR from its competitors is the ease of use.  Read More

The toilet is often referred to as "the throne," and Kohler is almost taking that expression literally with the introduction of its new Numi model. We've already seen the Kohler C3 toilet seat, which was pretty advanced in its own right, but the Numi certainly wears the crown as one of the most feature-packed toilets we've ever seen, and it comes with a US$6,650 price tag to match.  Read More

Some of these have included the PedalPower+, the EcoXPower, Nokia’s Bicycle Charger Kit, and BioLogic ReeCharge Power Pack. One of the latest such devices, the Siva Cycle Atom, is hitting Kickstarter – and it's quite a bit more compact than most of the competition.  Read More

Wearing the Crosskix shoes for running

EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is a soft foam composite used in all kinds of sports equipment, including ski boots, and, in recent years, shoes. The brand most people associate with this type of shoe is Crocs, and its colorful and comfortable clogs. Crosskix is a new name looking to make waves in the market with an EVA shoe that looks much more like a traditional sneaker, while still offering the same benefits of other EVA footwear.  Read More
