The iPad Pro is a strange device. Like other Apple products, it has a premium, polished design and is (in some ways) delightful to use. But it also shows Apple playing the unfamiliar role of follower – and (in some ways) not doing a particularly good job of it. Read on, as Gizmag reviews the fun but slightly illogical iPad Pro.
The Cadillac CTS is a very well-made, competitive entry in the midsize luxury sport sedan market. The car features beautiful, marked looks and drive dynamics that come straight from Chevrolet's Corvette. And although it's the high-end CTS Vsport model getting all of the attention, we found the best-selling mid-level package deserves some love, too.
Night Runner 270° Shoe Lights are designed to give you the freedom to run whenever, wherever without having to worry about cumbersome straps, clips or full-on packs that might get in the way of your nighttime workout. We took a pair for a few late night jogs in varied environments to see how they work.
According to a study conducted by the UK's Transport Research Laboratory, 79 percent of bicycle-vs-car accidents occurred when drivers maneuvered into the path of cyclists travelling at speed. In order to help lower that number, University of Brighton product design student Emily Brooke created the Blaze Laserlight as a final-year project. The bicycle headlight is designed to let motorists know that a bike is approaching, by laser-projecting an image of a bicycle onto the road approximately six meters (20 ft) in front of the rider. Four years and one successful Kickstarter campaign later, the Laserlight is now available to buyers in North America. We recently had a chance to try it out for ourselves.
When people think of Kei-cars, they tend to think of boxy wagons and quirky hatchbacks designed only for the Japanese market. With tiny 660 cc engines that qualify them for cheap tax and insurance, the Kei-car platform doesn't seem like a natural place to start when designing a sports car. That didn't deter Honda from creating a mid-engine, rear-drive sports car to fit the strict yellow-plate rules. Gizmag spent some time behind the wheel of the fantastic Honda S660 during our recent trip to Tokyo.
With winter fast approaching, those in the Northern Hemisphere might be looking for some new winter woolies to stave of the cold. But like the teams behind the Avade jersey and Evolve Hoodie, Utah-based Ravean thinks adding some active heating technology to a garment is a better option than resorting to layer and layer. We've spent the past few weeks with Ravean's USB battery-powered heated down vest and heated hoodie and think Ravean and its competitors make a compelling case.
You may already know that the Nexus 6P is Google's 2015 flagship smartphone and Huawei's first high-profile handset to launch in the US. You can also add Best Smartphone of 2015 candidate to that list. Read on, as Gizmag reviews the awesome Nexus 6P.
By now, you're probably quite used to things like smartphones, cameras and even car dashboards having a bewildering array of features. Well, Electrohome recently decided to give that same treatment to the humble alarm clock, in the rather ironic form of its Retro Alarm Clock Radio. We recently got our hands on the thing, and tried out features such as its autoset clock, sunrise wake-up lamps, motion detector snooze button and … thermometer?
We reviewed the Samsung Gear S2 soon after it launched, but we now have its better-looking fraternal twin, the Gear S2 Classic, in house. Let's take a quick look at Samsung's US$50 more expensive smartwatch that looks like a real watch.
Home security cameras can provide a sense of, well, security, but there's something Orwellian about having a lens staring at you like a prop out of an episode of The Prisoner. A more discreet solution is something that doesn't look like a camera and, better yet, combines some other functions to make it more welcome. One example is the Sentri home monitoring system that combines a motion-activated camera with the looks of a digital information center. We powered one up to see what it could do.
