Eric Mack

The G Watch atop its charging station, sans USB cord

Gizmag's Eric Mack recently took a long, hot and humid road trip through the American south. It was a trip borne of madness and masochism, but the last week was a little bit easier than the first four. That's the week he was wearing LG's Android Wear-powered G Watch on his wrist.  Read More

Exploring the Bay Area in the Cadillac ELR

Cadillac swears its plug-in hybrid ELR isn't a bust and to help make the point, it recently let me cruise around in one for a weekend. It's a powerful and fun ride built on the guts of the Chevrolet Volt that could certainly give Tesla a run for its money, provided you've got plenty of your own to spend on one.  Read More

A small notification card cover the lower part of the clock screen

The word from Google I/O this week was that the intriguing Moto 360 would not be available until later on in the northern summer. Perhaps sensing the disappointment among early adopters and Android and Moto fans, Motorola released a video demo of the Moto 360 from Google I/O this morning.  Read More

Wear devices display incoming notifications

Today Google provided more details on how Android Wear will work and made it clear that the company is investing heavily in the notion that wearables are the future, even as early smartwatches have failed to impress most consumers.  Read More

The Notifier could be the best entry-level smartwatch so far

Google is preparing to fully roll out Android Wear and the first smartwatch to run the platform could be going on sale soon, but it remains to be seen if consumers are actually interested in extending their mobile devices to their wrists. Having spent a month with the Android and iOS-compatible Martian Notifier smartwatch, I've come to the conclusion that it may offer the best way for early adopters, the mobile-obsessed or the busy every-man or woman to get his or her feet wet in the new wearable world.  Read More

RoboTar in action at Maker Faire

Of all the robots spotted at last month's Bay Area Maker Faire, the non-descript RoboTar definitely had the most distinctive groove. RoboTar is a robotic guitar hand that attaches to the neck of your instrument and takes care of that tricky fret work allowing for a new way to learn, play one-handed or even encourage experimentation for more experienced players.  Read More

After an object is scanned by Zeus, it can be printed or sent to another printer via the i...

3D printing might be awesome, but so far it's mostly been the realm of design geeks and passionate tinkerers. The Zeus from AIO Robotics seeks to merge 3D scanning and printing with the push-button simplicity of today's consumer all-in-one printer/scanner/fax machines. In the process, the company also created the closest thing we've seen so far to the Star Trek replicator, with the added bonus of what you might call "ToIP" – Teleportation over Internet Protocol.  Read More

The LittleBits Arduino Bundle

Last year, my daughter and I had the opportunity to try out Littlebits – magnetic circuits that make it easy for kids to create a variety of simple projects – for a few weeks. She's been talking about it ever since. Now the company is offering a new Arduino module that allows kids to not just make cool circuits, but to program them too.  Read More
