Review: Skipping taxi lines with EcoReco's M5 Air electric scooter

If you've never been to CES, then you may not know one of the tech show's dirty little secrets: getting around Las Vegas during the show can take up nearly as much time as the show itself. Though Vegas isn't the ideal city for personal urban transportation, our time using the EcoReco M5 Air scooter made for a solid alternative to standing in taxi lines. If you live in a city that's more friendly to personal transport, though, it could be much more than that.Read More

ODG's smartglasses are like a high-end Android tablet for your face (hands-on)

But as final forms become apparent and content continues to fill up, we have some new thoughts on the Oculus Rift – and why it's the best VR headset right now.Read More

This VR exercise bike makes sweating buckets feel like riding a Pegasus (hands-on)

A little over a year ago, we strapped on a Gear VR, sat on a stationary bike and waxed philosophical about a future where virtual reality helps people forget that they're exercising. Apparently we weren't the only ones with the idea, as VirZoom is one of at least two companies demoing VR-based exercise products at CES. We took VirZoom for a spin and the result was the coolest spin class we've ever taken.Read More
