About this time last year, the Woojer hit popular crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to raise production funds. Rather than merely massaging or enhancing the output from a mobile music player with the aid of a headphone amp, the so-called wearable woofer sends beat-driven vibrations throughout the region of the body where it's placed, adding a new dimension to the personal music listening experience.

Gizmag reviews Google's new take on email, Inbox for Gmail

Google's Inbox is the latest interface for Gmail, both on the web (only through a Chrome browser at the moment) and via mobile apps for iOS and Android. It's a major and almost entirely positive upgrade to the Gmail experience. But if we're honest, the best thing about using it for the past week is finally being freed of that bloated, boring and increasingly clunky Gmail interface that's needed an overhaul for a few years now.  Read More
