The earform cap of the Normal earphones are 3D-printed to provide a snug fit

If you enjoy music on the move, there's a very good chance that you've been troubled by earphones popping out of your ears just as you're getting into the groove. There are high-end earphones or professional in-ear monitors available that require the buyer to pop along to an audiologist and go through an uncomfortable custom fit process to ensure the buds won't keep falling out as you run through the park or jump around the stage.

She came up with a way to tailor each pair of earphones to the wearer using a free mobile app and a 3D printer.  Read More

And so the idea for Odin was born – a pocket-sized projector with its own computer running Android KitKat, and packing built-in speakers, Wi-Fi and a battery.  Read More

Amazon's Fire TV allows you to stream digital media to it from a Kindle Fire HDX. That's all well and good if you have a Fire HDX tablet which runs Fire OS, Amazon's forked version of Android. But if you own a typical Android smartphone or tablet, you need to rely on other methods to stream your content to the Fire TV.
