Ehang's Ghost Drone in action

It was just this June that we heard about the HEXO+ and AirDog drones, which were two of the first consumer multicopters to offer a Follow function – that's the ability to track the location of their user, and fly along above them. Since then, models including the Iris+ and Zano have come out with the same feature. Now, Chinese/American company Ehang is successfully raising production funds for its Follow-equipped GoPro-toting Ghost Drone. Developed in partnership with Duke University, not only is the quadcopter able to track and film its user, but it's also reportedly easier to fly than its competitors.  Read More

A new iPhone add-on devised by California-based company Peri aims to give iPhone users a double whammy: more battery power and sound volume, all for less cash.

Slipknot's Sid Wilson has provided a number of song patterns for the KDJ-ONE

Nearly 3 years ago, Japan's CyberStep Communications revealed a prototype all-in-one synth, sequencer and multitrack audio editor called the KDJ-ONE that could be held in the palm of the hand, had built-in storage and offered Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Nubrella has been redesigned for better visibility and comfort

About four years ago, we took a look at the Nubrella, a hands-free wearable umbrella that looked like a rain-deflecting space helmet … only somehow bigger and goofier. Well, in those four years, we haven't seen a single person wearing one in public. Sensing a bit of that lack of enthusiasm, Nubrella's designers went back to the drawing board and came up with a new rain-deflecting space helmet design.  Read More
