WT2 real-time translation earpieces look to crowdfund first run

 This summer the TC team took a brief trip to Shenzhen, where I met Wells Tu, whose company TimeKettle has made an earpiece that translates spoken Chinese to English and vice versa in near real time. Having created a functioning prototype (it isn’t vaporware; we tried it, as you can see above) he and the team are now heading to Kickstarter to raise the money for their first run of the… Read More

You can get your own mini Mars rover for Earth through this new project

 Mars is a long way away, and super expensive to get to, so if you have the very specific dream of owning your own Mars rover, it’s probably not going to happen. But if you want an EARTH rover, there’s a new Kickstarter project that could deliver one once it reaches its funding goal. Read More

The Baggizmo Wiseward is more than a wallet

 In a hole in your pants there lived a wallet. Not a nasty, dirty, wet wallet, filled with the receipts and cigarette papers and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, boring wallet that fit nothing and there nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a Baggizmo wallet, and that meant lots of gadgetry. It had a perfectly flat folder design, with a programmable NFC chip installed. The wallet… Read More

Apple’s HomePod isn’t the first ‘HomePod’

homepod

At its much-hyped WWDC 2017 keynote, Apple did what everyone already thought they were going to do by announcing a funky little home speaker. You've probably already read equal amounts of gushing and criticism of the device, its usefulness, its design, and its potential to either revolutionize home audio or completely flop. What you might not know is that the HomePod that appeared on stage in California on Monday isn't actually the first "HomePod" at all. Prepare to be amazed.

This adorable underwater drone swims like a fish, and doesn’t cost a fortune

underwater drone

When you think of consumer drones, the image of a quadcopter zooming above the treetops probably comes to mind, but drones can come in all shapes, sizes, and capabilities. The idea of an underwater drone is relatively unexplored territory, at least when it comes to consumer-level gadgets, but a company called Robosea thinks it might be able to change that with an adorable "robot fish" with a built-in 4K camera and a price tag that won't make you cry. The only problem? First you have to fund the Kickstarter

This tiny 4G smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat and costs just $59

smallest android phone

It's no secret that smartphones are getting bigger, thinner, and more expensive, and with rumors piling up that the mythical iPhone 8 could be priced north of $1,000 to start, remaining an early adopter may just keep getting more and more expensive. But while flagship devices continue to march forward, one company is going in the opposite direction, and that strategy is seemingly paying off in a big way. This is the Jelly smartphone by Unihertz, and it's already a Kickstarter superstar.

Wynd’s air purifier has broad ambitions and a short reach

 The Wynd smart air purifier is designed to create “bubbles” of fresh air — small, one-person respites from pollution, allergens and other detrimental particles floating in the ether. It feels almost dystopian, a world in which we’re required to arm ourselves against the air around us, but the product clearly struck a nerve. Read More
