‘MegaMIMO 2.0’ wireless routers work together to triple bandwidth and double range

various offices connected via light trails in city Wireless interference is one of those things that we tend to not think about, because, well, we can’t see it. But routers are all over the place, sometimes several in a room when you’re in an office, conference, or campus — and make no mistake, it’s an epic battle at the frequencies they share. Some enterprising researchers have found a way to make those routers work… Read More

Devices could recycle radio waves instead of transmitting them with new ‘interscatter’ technique

UW grad student Vikram Iyer holds a contact lens antenna that could use interscatter to communicate. If we’re ever to have things like smart contact lenses and permanent brain implants, one of the things we need to figure out is the power problem. Those devices need energy for collecting, processing and especially transmitting data — but that last one might not be a problem anymore, thanks to a new technique called interscatter communication.

The Vortex 250 is the Lamborghini of racing drones

IMG_2650 Having spent a good deal of time flying UAVs like DJI’s Inspire 1 and Phantom 4, I like to consider myself experienced with drones. So when I came across Horizon Hobby’s Vortex 250 Pro racing drone, I didn’t think twice that it was labeled for “the experienced pilot”. I thought I’d take off, hover around my house, maybe snap some photos or videos. Boy was… Read More

What headphones will Apple bundle w/ iPhone 7? Wireless AirPods? Lightning EarPods? Beats?

A big question up in the air for iPhone 7 is what Apple will do with its bundled headphones. If this is the first year Apple is to remove the headphone jack from the device as rumored, that means one of a few things for the bundled EarPods that usually come with its iPhones…

Review: Definitive W7 + Play-Fi, hands on with an AirPlay competitor for home wireless music

I love the concept of streaming music around the home. There are a lot of great wireless Bluetooth speakers for wireless music on the move, but it’s still unclear what to choose for a static home environment. Apple’s answer is AirPlay, but it has flaws: no multi-room support from iOS devices, limited adoption by speaker manufacturers, and spotty reliability at best.

I’ve been trying an AirPlay alternative, called Play-Fi, which is a competing industry technology for home Wi-Fi music streaming from DTS. Specifically, I tested the Definitive W7 wireless speaker which integrates Play-Fi. Read on for my review  ….

Review: Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard becomes full size again w/ Satechi’s wireless aluminum keypad

Satechi’s new Aluminum Wireless Keypad is the numeric keypad add-on Apple doesn’t make for its own wireless keyboard. Apple has a truly full-sized keyboard with the number/keypad option, but it’s only available as a wired keyboard. Its wireless Bluetooth keyboard, however, which it bundles with its Mac desktops and also sells separately, is shorter and doesn’t come with the old number pad.

That’s probably because the majority of users probably don’t miss it with the top number row suffice for occasional number input, so it’s understandable why Apple doesn’t pay much attention to it. But I personally like and miss the speed of using a keypad for quick commands in pro apps like Logic and punching in numbers in spreadsheets (it’s tax time…), so I’ve been testing Satechi’s new Aluminum Wireless Keypad that recently arrived.

Review: Master & Dynamic’s MW60 makes wireless headphones look cool again

L1120293 Master & Dynamic is known in the audiophile space as the “newbies” — but they’ve made a name for themselves. The headphones seen here are the company’s latest offering, but also their first Bluetooth pair. The fanfare has been resolute: it’s been continuously sold out since its launch earlier this year. But are they just a fad, or quality product? Read More
