The Kadalock mounts on existing bottle cages – although you should check for compatibility...

The keyless Bluetooth bike locks are now coming thick and fast ... relatively speaking. In just the past couple of years, we've heard about the Skylock, Bitlock, Lock8, Ulock and Noke U-lock. Now, the Kadalock has appeared on our radar. It differs from the others in that it's a cable lock, and it mounts on the user's existing water bottle cage.  Read More

A new modular gamepad allows you to decouple the two sides of a game controller for more n...

If you've ever wished for a gamepad that conforms to your needs rather than forcing you to conform to its rigid shell then you'll appreciate the idea behind Grifta. It's a modular gamepad system that divorces the left and right units from each other and offers three interchangeable handle sizes. The three-piece Grifta's main selling point is backed by a keyboard mode for play with one grip plus a mouse as well as eight extra buttons on each of its two handgrips.  Read More

The Blue Freedom brings hydropower to your backpack

The all-new Blue Freedom kit offers yet another alternative to solar panels, fuel cells, muscle-powered dynamos, wind turbines, AC-charged back-up batteries and other portable power solutions.

Time-lapse videos can be an interesting and intoxicating way of showing the passage of time, but sometimes a lack of camera movement can make them feel stale. The TurnsPro is the latest device which aims to address this issue by rotating your smartphone, action camera or interchangeable lens camera as it shoots a time-lapse or video. We recently had a look at the TurnsPro, which has just met its Kickstarter target.  Read More

The teeny Ringo robot from Portland's Plum Geek

Though you can work with your kids on all sorts of crazy electronics projects by adding numerous shields, break-out boards and attachments to existing development platforms or going wild with Lego Technic building blocks, such solutions just weren't cute enough for Kevin King and his kids Halley and Parker. Their digital pet is called Ringo and thanks to a successful crowdfunding effort, the teeny Arduino-based robotics and programming learning tool could be swarming toward backers in the coming months.  Read More

Exercising in the dark is something that many of us are forced to do by our perpetually hectic lifestyles. However, that does inevitably mean encountering extra dangers en route, such as uneven pavements and impatient drivers. The 270-degree Shoe Lights from Night Runner are designed to allow you to exercise more safely at night.  Read More

The Litelok weighs less than a U-lock, yet is claimed to be as secure

It's kind of ironic that while many cyclists ride lightweight bikes, they still carry heavy-duty U-locks that weigh several pounds. In most cases, however, lighter cable locks can easily be defeated with a set of bolt cutters. That's why Prof. Neil Barron, a former aeronautical engineer, has created the Litelok. It's light and flexible like a cable lock, but reportedly stands up to over five minutes of attack from tools such as bolt cutters, jacks and hack saws.  Read More
