    10 of the coolest gadgets we saw at CES 2017

These, in no particular order, were the hottest hardware startups and most interesting gadgets from the show, and you can find our full coverage of… Read More

    Siren Care weaves electronics into fabric to keep diabetic patients healthy

    Instead of tracking your health with a little band that’s on your wrist, Ran Ma thinks that the future is keeping track of your health — or at least parts of it — with technology that’s woven into the fabric of your clothes. That’s the target of Siren Care, a wearable company that looks to weave electronic sensors into its clothing in order to track changes in… Read More

  • Add items to your grocery list by scanning them on the way to the garbage can

    Add items to your grocery list by scanning them on the way to the garbage can

    At first glance, the GeniCan is completely ridiculous. At second, it’s actually kind of brilliant. The scanner clips onto the side of a trash can, an always present reminder to scan items when you run out. Before throwing an object out, you hold it up to the IR scanner and it adds it to your list. If an item can’t be scanned – like, say, a piece of fruit — the… Read More

    Dell’s Canvas is a 27-inch tablet for creative professionals

    Microsoft’s Surface Studio was one of 2016’s surprise hits. It was a sort of one-two punch that arrived the same week that Apple released its new MacBook Pros to mixed reaction. Microsoft had seemingly come into its own as a producer of serious hardware for content creators. Dell previewed its own solution shortly thereafter by way of a quick online trailer. When we met with… Read More
