A new Indiegogo project wants to bring a tech-enabled, touch-controlled steering wheel to a car near you. The Radiomize steering wheel cover converts a standard steering wheel into a touchpad controller for a paired smartphone, safely adding connected car options to any vehicle.
Despite the impact it can have on our health, we rarely monitor the quality of air that we are breathing. The new AirVisual Node keeps tabs on both indoor and outdoor air quality. It also provides recommendations to help improve the wellbeing of its users.
Whether a student, professional, or road-warrior, it's worth having the right bag to carry all of your gear. The latest from Poros is designed with modern life in mind. The Tetra backpack keeps mobile devices powered on-the-go through its seamlessly-integrated charging technology with full LCD battery display.
Phone charging cables can sometimes be awkward to plug in, pull phones off surfaces or get damaged when bent. Inspired by Apple's MagSafe chargers for MacBooks, the MuConnect is aimed at making charging your smartphone a snap.
There are all sorts of health wearables to make sure we're exercising right, but what about to make sure we're sitting right? The Prana focuses on breathing and posture to promote relaxation. It is said to be the first wearable designed to monitor and train diaphragmatic breathing – although the makers of the UpRight sensor might disagree.
After exceeding its funding target on Indiegogo, the Extreme Fliers Micro Drone 3.0, a compact drone with live video streaming, is starting to ship to backers. We recently got the chance to take a closer look at one and see if it really flies as well as it does in the promo videos. We also checked out features including its modular design and First Person View flying mode.
For many people who perform high-output outdoor activities, straight-up water in their hydration pack just isn't enough – they want water with an added energy supplement. The problem is, the pack's bladder can retain the color and taste of such concoctions. That's the reason Infuze was created. It adds a supplement to hydration-pack water, downstream from the bladder.
Noise cancelling technology, which is widely used in headphones, lets users drown out background distractions to hear their music better. But what if you don't want to hear anything at all? Standard earplugs often don't cut it (or bring inconveniences of their own), so the new QuietOn earplugs use active noise cancelling (sans music) to minimize what users can hear.
Graffiti looks cool, but it requires a lot of practice to produce anything half decent. The SprayPrinter, however, will let you create your own slick design at home using spray paint to create large artworks from images on a smartphone.
There are already plenty of apps that let people estimate how many calories are in the foods they're eating. However, most of these programs require users to either guess at their portion sizes, or actually weigh the food. That's where the University of Washington's NutriRay3D comes in. It's a smartphone device/app combo, that uses lasers to ascertain how many calories are sitting on the plate.
