The Jammy is a steel string guitar that fits in a pocket

 As a fan of electronic guitars – as opposed to plain old electrics – the Jammy seems like a very interesting piece of kit. Designed to be played like a regular guitar, you fret on the top part of the neck and strum the strings on the bottom half. Because it has only five frets you change the octave by pulling the neck out from 0 to the full length of 12 inches. Design house… Read More

The Lily drone is kind of back

 Remember the Lily drone? It was the drone a person could launch by throwing it in the air and then it would follow the user gallivanting around Dolores Park. It was also the company that couldn’t live up to its crowdfunding campaign and ultimately shut down last January. It’s now available. Sort of. It’s called the Lily Next-Gen and looks much like the original with a blue… Read More

New drone perches on walls like a robotic bird

 The Multimodal Autonomous Drone (S-MAD) is a fixed-wing drone that has a few bird-like tricks up its sleeve. You can, for example, fly it like a glider through a room or open space but when it approaches a flat surface the drone quickly changes configuration and lands flat with its little spiky teeth digging in to keep it from falling. In short, this is one of the scariest robotic behaviors… Read More

New video details how Dr. Dre discovered Eminem

Eminem Dr Dre

Whether you hated him or loved him, Eminem in the early 2000s was an artist that was simply impossible to ignore. With a seemingly endless stream of chart-topping hits -- which featured lyrics that were both clever and notoriously offensive -- Eminem quickly became a cultural icon, a feat made all the more impressive given his somewhat introverted nature. Though Eminem's recent albums haven't been as good as his previous work, there's no denying that Slim Shady for a good number of years was one of the most influential rappers on the planet. And besides, with Eminem now pushing 45, it's not exactly fair to expect him to re-capture the musical magic he had in plentiful supply in his mid-20s.

macklemore glorious

Celebrity culture in America turns people like Mackelmore into idols, but rarely pays any attention to the loving and supportive families that surround them. In a new music video for his new single Glorious, Macklemore — whose real name is Benjamin Haggerty — celebrates his grandmother Helen in the best way anyone could: by taking her out for a full day where anything she wants, she gets. It's amazing.

The Trayvax Element is a minimalist wallet for the paranoid beer-lover

 I went digging recently for another minimalist wallet and boy did I find one. My old one, two pieces of titanium attached with a rubber band, was getting too old and things were falling out. I did a quick hunt and found a few very flat minimalist wallets, but nothing that seemed to be rugged and clever. Enter Trayvax. I tried the Trayvax Element, a leather and stainless steel monster with… Read More

Two new Loog guitars let your toddler shout at the devil

 Loog is a New York-based guitar company run by a music teacher named Rafael Atijas. These three-string guitars are designed for kids as young as 3 years old and they make guitar easy and fun – at least according to my kids who played with them when they were much younger. The new models are called the Mini for ages 3 and older and the Pro for ages 8 and older. The Mini is a smaller… Read More
