Stealth makes some of the baddest electric-powered two-wheeled transport around. We can attest to this after having an absolute blast on the Australian company's high-powered flagship, the B-52, but what happens when you take an extreme e-bike and replace the pedals with dirtbike-style pegs? We climbed aboard Stealth's H-52 model to find out.
The legendary Land Cruiser brings to mind visions of great adventures on the savannah, where lions roar in the evening and herds of water buffalo rumble by in the distance. The urbane looks of the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser seem well and truly at odds with that image, yet underneath the rough-and-ready capability of the LC of old is still there. This Toyota can race the rhino with any of its forebears. It will just look classier doing it.
There's no doubt that tablets and smartphones have made multi-track audio recording on the run easier than ever. But connecting instruments to iPads and iPhones has never been quite as simple. The iRig Pro Duo from IK Multimedia helps make that final connection and allows musicians to truly record on the run.
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.
As the range of wireless home security systems broadens, the choices offered range from elaborate information centers that monitor the local environment to simple cameras designed for economy and ease of use. One example of the latter is the Turcom Cyberview Mini, which is a plug-and-play camera with an emphasis on fast setup and expandability. We plugged one in to see what it could do.
The BMW 3 Series has long been the benchmark for the midsize luxury sedan market. Combining the best of German luxurious sports driving into one package, this has long been the sedan to beat. Although others are doing well, bringing some stiff competition, the 3 Series sees a few updates, especially to the top-end six-cylinder engine, that keep this Driving Machine out front.
Solar panels come in a variety of guises designed to appeal to consumers looking for greener, plug-free ways to fuel electronics on the go. Prominent among these is Solartab, a portable solar charger and back-up-battery that hit the market in 2015 following a Kickstarter campaign in which it raised more than double its funding goal. We spent some time in the sun to see whether it was up to the task of keeping our devices happy and powered.
In an age of wireless speakers dominated by singing soda cans and the occasional light show, the Zeppelin Wireless from British audio firm Bowers & Wilkins keeps the focus refreshingly on the task at hand. The latest in the Zeppelin line takes what was previously a muscle-bound iPod dock, upgrades it, and delivers a top-tier speaker that just happens to be wireless. Let's take a listen.
The Nissan Titan XD is truly a Titan among trucks, with a bigger size, heavier footprint, and more powerful diesel engine than any other half-ton pickup on the market. Is more really better, though? Gizmag spent a week in the 2016 Titan XD shortly after it entered production to learn what this truck is really made for (and of).
In a rapidly expanding universe, it can be hard for casual stargazers to keep track of all those stars, planets and constellations in the night sky. Universe2go tackles this task with a clever augmented reality headset and smartphone app package that instantly turned us into aspiring astronomers when we tried it out for this review.
