  • Solar Powered Beer Cooler | CES 2014

    SolarCooler Keeps Your Brews Icy With The Power Of The Sun, But It’ll Cost You $1K

    Every year at CES, the Eureka Park outpost where they stick the scrappy startups is the best damn part of the whole shindig. This is where all the people with a screw loose or a decided lack of good common sense come to peddle their spaghetti-cooking robot or aroma-powered computer – or, as happened this year, their solar-powered beer cooler. SolarCooler is a “world first,”… Read More

  • The BeatBuddy Pedal Lets You Build Beats With Your Feet

    The BeatBuddy Pedal Lets You Build Beats With Your Feet

    This is something I never knew I wanted: it’s called BeatBuddy and it’s basically a crowdfunded guitar stomp box that allows you to cue up and play drumbeats through your amplifier. That means you can run this in line with your guitar effects and add some undistorted, funky fresh breakbeatery, making yourself into a formidable and frightening Voltron-like all-electronic band. And… Read More

  • The Timeless Box Sends Your Gifts Through Time And Space

    The Timeless Box Sends Your Gifts Through Time And Space

    Gift giving is very anticlimactic. You hand something over, the recipient tears it open, and you’re done. Maybe there are hugs exchanged, maybe some high fives. Whatever. Cheetos, beer, and football the rest of the night. But get a load of the Timeless Box. It’s a $100 aluminum (or titanium) box that is locked shut for a period of time – between a few days and a year. You… Read More

  • This Is The Year Of The Makers

    This Is The Year Of The Makers

    We are at a turning point in terms of gadget manufacturing. The heavy hitters in hardware – the Sonys, the Samsungs, the LGs – are stuck in the mire of slow innovation. We haven’t heard much out of that camp this year – they’re keeping CES plans under wraps – but I suspect we’ll see a few big TVs and some thin laptops and a nice fridge or two and… Read More

  • Uncoverage Hopes To Crowdfund Investigative Journalism, Because Newspapers

    Uncoverage Hopes To Crowdfund Investigative Journalism, Because Newspapers

    Israel Mirsky likes to give the following analogy about the role of journalism in a democracy: a free society can only function if it has a strong immune system. Investigative journalists serve as the helper T cells that find and fight infection, by directing the attention of prosecutors, lawmakers, and public opinion toward corruption. But because the Internet changed the news business… Read More

  • Birdi Will Warn You When You’re Breathing Nasty Air

    Birdi Will Warn You When You’re Breathing Nasty Air

    Although the Chinese government believes that smog “unifies people, makes China more equal, and makes people funnier,” we all know it also can kill you. That’s why Birdi is so interesting. It’s a dedicated air quality sensor that hides out on your wall, looking to all the world like a simple smoke detector. However, instead of telling you about something is… Read More
