🎶 Can’t wear Snap sunglasses at night 🎶

corey-hart-sunglasses-at-night Unless you plan on bumping into stuff, don’t expect to record after-dark concerts and parties on your Snap Inc Spectacles. The company formerly known as Snapchat (they really should have just changed it to the  emoji, Prince-style) confirms to me its new camera glasses are not currently built to be worn at night. Their lenses are like normal sunglasses, so it’d be too shady to… Read More

Ghostdrone has one-year klutz-insurance and beginner-friendly controls

img_2779 Not one for the self-conscious, Ghostdrone 2.0 VR from Ehang adds a new twist to flying an UAV around. Rather than using a traditional controller, to fly the Ghostdrone VR, the user dons a headset to get a point-of-view perspective of what the drone is seeing. The drone is controlled by gestures, touch commands and tilting of a smartphone, while the camera is controlled by the headset. Read More

Canary’s new security camera cuts the cord to tackle the great outdoors

Canary Flex I’m a bit surprised Canary didn’t just go ahead and make the Flex its flagship. For starters, the camera is just a heck of a lot nicer looking than its predecessor, a white (or black) pill-shaped product with a glossy black frot and a glowing power ring on the bottom that brings nothing more to mind than HAL-9000, that ultimate bastion of home security. It there’s a complaint… Read More

Glance Clock keeps your life together with subtle yet vibrant notifications

In today’s world, a missed Uber can be the difference between a confidence-inducing 5.0 rider rating and a clearly shameful 4.8. Glance Clock, a smart clock that looks more analog than digital at first glance (see what I did there), wants to make your life easier by… Read More

GoPro’s drone is finally here, and it only costs $800

GoPro Drone Karma
Rumors about a GoPro drone called Karma have been in the rumormill forever, but it's finally here. GoPro's new drone costs $800, and for that you get a fold-up drone barely bigger than a shoebox, and a stabilization system you can take off, attach to an included grip, and use to capture silky-smooth footage on the ground. GoPro describes it as "so much more than a drone," and you can see where it's coming from. Based on the launch footage, Karma is a highly effective gimbal for things like skiing and mountain biking. On its own, mounted to standard GoPro helmet or chest rigs, it makes for seriously pro-level footage. Attached to a cheap, easy-to-control drone, it could be a game-changer.
