The $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W is the teeniest little Wi-Fi-enabled computer you’ve ever seen

img_3020 When the original $5 Raspberry Pi Zero came out – to much fanfare, I might add – users connected it to all sorts of things. They made micro gaming rigs that ran on the 1GHz single-core CPU and added Pi Hats – little breakout boards – to power robots and sensors. Now you can do all that but without worrying about a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth dongle. The $10 Pi Zero W is the… Read More

With so much riding on the Switch, you'd think Nintendo would have packed just about every standard bit of functionality into the system as possible, but it seems that just isn't the case. A report from French news site Melty reveals that Nintendo has decided not to support wireless Bluetooth headsets, meaning that any personal audio you need at home or on the go will have to come with a cord.

The Sengled Pulse is a clever but problematic take on whole-home audio

bulb_page_b_sec_1 Sengled is the latest manufacturer to jump into the smart bulb space and their products, while a bit behind the curve, are clever and – most important – cheap. Their smartest smart bulbs are $10 cheaper than the arguably top-of-the-line Philips LIFX bulbs and they also offer the Pulse, a pair of bulbs containing an LED light source and JBL Bluetooth speakers for about $100.… Read More

The Coros Linx is a smart bike helmet that makes sense

coros_profile1 While cycling apps are thick on the ground, a full gadget ecosystem is hard to come by. Seattle startup Coros is looking to change that with the Linx, a helmet-app combo (with handlebar controller) that lets you listen to music, take calls, get turn-by turn directions, and track progress made along your route. I’ve tried it, and this thing actually seems like a good idea. Read More
