From Pong, to 2D platforms and onto online first person shooters, our desire for an increasingly realistic gaming experience was always going to see platforms emerge where we combat our friends, foes and flesh-eating zombies using our real-world bodies. Skirmos, the latest take on the laser tag system, uses gun-mounted LCD display, radio-based dynamic scoring and open-source programming in an attempt bring the complex and varied experience of the modern multi-player shooter to life.  Read More

The Soap router features a touchscreen for easy configuration

Generally, when a new router comes along, the main featured touted by the creators is how fast it is. Soap is a little different, instead focusing on its touchscreen interface for ease of use and configuration.  Read More

The Revolights Arc knows how fast you're going, and shines accordingly

Revolights is a bicycle lighting system that first came to our attention three years ago, in which the front of the front wheel lights up to serve as a headlight, while the back of the rear wheel illuminates to act as a tail light. While it's a clever setup, at US$229 for a full kit, it's not cheap. That's why its designers have just announced a more affordable alternative called the Revolights Arc, that combines a tail light and wheel-speed-activated brake light.  Read More

The Glowfaster Jacket is a new take on fitness tracking wearables developed by ex-marine Simon Weatherall that provides runners with feedback on speed, heart rate and location by way of lights down its front and along the sleeves.  Read More

Mogees can turn anything into a musical instrument, even a balloon

In January 2012 we first heard about Mogees, a small device created by Bruno Zamborlin for a PhD project in Arts and Computational Technologies. Two years later and, after going through some literal fine-tuning, Mogees has made it to Kickstarter. But just what is this strange device that promises to let you "Play the world"?  Read More

Flyfit is an ankle-band fitness tracker

Fitness trackers are all the rage at the moment and there are plenty of options from which to choose. The vast majority of trackers strap to your wrist, but would there be any benefit to strapping a one to your ankle instead? That's the question Flyfit asked – and the answer, it says, is yes.  Read More

Bike-sharing schemes are commonplace in many urban centers around the globe. Though they offer great convenience for last-mile travel or as an option for inner city commuters, as well as easing the stress on overcrowded roads and public transport systems, to say they involve high performance machines would be a bit of a stretch. ShareRoller is a portable electrical motor designed to build on the practicality of shared bicycle schemes by adding a little power and removing some of the legwork from the mix.  Read More

The Acoustic Stream 4-in-1 guitarist's companion

Mobile or gigging guitarists looking for a way to capture creative moments whenever and wherever they happen need only power up a smartphone and launch an audio recording app. Another app can use the phone's microphone to bring the instrument to tune. If they're wanting to remotely monitor the humidity and temperature of a much-loved guitar, however, the app store will likely come up blank. The Acoustic Stream wirelessly pairs with an iOS smart device running a companion app to help players quickly capture a killer riff or live stream to a mobile device or amplifier. It boasts built-in precision tuning capabilities, and sends out an alert when environmental changes threaten to damage a treasured instrument.  Read More

Writerase is a range of dry erase notebooks that possess the versatility of a whiteboard

Writerase is a range (or forest, as the company calls it) of customizable dry erase notebooks. They're designed for people who like brainstorming advantages of a whiteboard but need the portability of a notebook. Writerase combines the best of both products, with sheets of erasable paper collected in bound notebooks ranging in size from small to large.  Read More

While the two devices when paired together allow extra functionality, they can also be use...

For those who play video games, a fraction of a second, say, the time it takes to move your hand from keyboard to mouse, can be enough to lose a soldier, building or entire army. For this reason keyboard shortcuts have become an important weapon in the gamer's arsenal, but what if our commands could be streamlined even further? With this objective in mind, a US-based engineer and founder of Solid Art Labs Eric Charlton has designed the King's Assembly, an input device which allows control over a keyboard, mouse and joystick simultaneously.  Read More
