If you're a fitness fanatic looking to use technology to monitor your activity, then slapping on a wristband like a Fitbit or a Jawbone might seem the easiest option. But in the eyes of French shoe company Glagla, there are things our footwork can tell us about our fitness that other body movements cannot. At this week's CES, it has wheeled out a pair of connected sports shoes that it claims can track fitness metrics with unrivaled accuracy.  Read More

Traditional over the ear headphones aren't always ideal when you're engaged in physical activities, but Outdoor Tech, the company the Turtle Shell Bluetooth speakers, thinks it has the solution in the shape of the CHIPS "All-In-One" headphone system.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Motorola's attempt at reinventing the Bluetooth headset, the Moto Hint (Ima...

When we visited Motorola's Chicago headquarters in September, one of the most intriguing new gadgets wasn't quite ready for the press to try out. But now we've been able to spend some quality time with Moto Hint, the company's next generation Bluetooth earbud. Though it's a step in the right direction compared to the wonky things some of us stick in our ears, there's still some room for improvement.  Read More

The SpaceLife Jacket is designed to pay tribute to the classic spacesuits of yesteryear

Almost everybody will, at some point, have harbored a desire to travel into outer space. But it's unlikely any of us will achieve this goal, unless and until Elon Musk or Richard Branson deliver on their promises to make space travel much simpler and more affordable. Still, if you can't actually make it out of Earth's atmosphere, you can at least buy the T-shirt. Or, more accurately, an approximation of the jacket worn by astronauts.  Read More

DefenDoor uses a camera and two types of sensors to protect a user's home

Across crowdfunding sites, we're seeing more and more smart doorbells and other devices designed to protect user's homes. A new one from Glate, called DefenDoor, aims to combine some of the best features from all of them, as it serves as a doorbell, camera, motion sensor, and more.  Read More

The Ulock is locked and unlocked via the user's smartphone

Over the past couple of years, we've heard about two different bicycle U-locks – the Skylock and the BitLock – that can be unlocked via the user's smartphone. Both were the subject of successful crowd-funding campaigns, and both are now available for pre-order. When it comes to a product that's actually being shipped to buyers now, however, the imaginatively-named Ulock has just beaten them both to it.  Read More

With the Bluetooth speaker marketplace becoming increasingly crowded, designers are looking at their products from new angles to gain an edge over the competition. For Honk Kong-based startup Crazybaby, this included the speaker's underside, with the team developing a levitating Bluetooth speaker that floats above its charging station to project sound from every surface.  Read More

The Danalock electronic lock installs over existing deadbolts and allows multiple users vi...

I’ve had a basic electronic lock on my door for a few months now, so when Poly-Control offered me the more sophisticated Bluetooth- and Z-Wave-enabled Danalock to review, I was curious to see what it could do. Danalock allows any existing deadbolt to be retrofitted into a system allowing multiple users different levels of access to one or multiple locks, and the Z-Wave compatibility allows incorporation into a larger home automation system. In practice, the promise of the sleek Danalock is slightly quenched by buggy iOS and Android apps, with features that simply don’t work, but the core of the lock still remains functional and appealing.  Read More

The Line 6 AMPLIFi TT guitar tone processor and Bluetooth audio streamer

The home audio landscape has undergone quite a change in recent times. Where the living room hi-fi once ruled the roost, the expensive and carefully matched components are now dead silent and the once proud tower speakers have been repurposed as stands for photo frames or vases. Music lovers seem quite happy to accept an often huge drop in sonic quality for the convenience and wireless ease of the small Bluetooth speaker. But the folks over at Line 6 are looking to breathe new life into those dusty stereo system circuits with a new addition to the AMPLIFi range called the TT.  Read More
