I’ve reviewed a couple wearable cameras like the Narrative Clip that are designed to automatically capture images so you can relive your daily adventures. Love the idea, but so far none of the cameras I’ve tried has really been that impressive. If looks count for anything, the Frontrow wearable hands-free live stream camera and watch has me drooling.

Fidget spinners are the latest toy craze that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Instead, other fidget toys are appearing like these fidget cubes that feature your favorite Marvel superheroes. [click to continue…]

If you are a serious console gamer you have probably heard of Turtle Beach. Turtle Beach has been one of best-known gaming headset makers around. If you’re not a gamer you may not understand the importance of having a good headset, especially when playing PVP (Player VS Player) type games. I will admit that I have always been a little envious of Turtle Beach users, but I could never justify buying some of their earlier offerings because of prices. Not that they were the most expensive, but more for my lack of PVP gaming, so I just used some get by headsets. Now Turtle Beach has launched the XO THREE headset for the XBOX One and RECON 150 for the PlayStation 4 a good functional gaming headset at a good price.

Yeah, I know… we’re a gadget site. But this is just too good not to share. And you need a new decoration for your office, right?

A lot of us grew up watching the soft-spoken Bob Ross on “The Joy of Painting,” where he taught us how to achieve happiness and inner peace by painting landscapes (and especially “happy little trees”). It was mesmerizing. While Bob passed in 1995, he’s seen a pop culture resurgence over the past few years as people rediscover his videos on YouTube. And now Funko, who is always in tune with the latest trends, bring us this cute little guy to brighten up our lives.  [click to continue…]

I have celiac disease, an inherited autoimmune condition that affects about one in every 100 people. When I eat gluten – think pizza, pasta, bread, cake and cookies – my body revolts against the enemy intruder and starts attacking itself, resulting in a number of seemingly unrelated and ugly reactions from which I’ll spare you a description. But let’s just say some involve the gut.

People will sometimes offer me food they insist is safe for me (which, according to the FDA, is less than 20 parts per million), and sometimes I end up experiencing a variety of effects – some immediate, some less so, but all unpleasant and potentially contributing to premature mortality. This can happen at a get-together or at a restaurant.

So I was thrilled to be able to review the Nima Portable Gluten Sensor, a compact device that allows you to test for gluten. The unit, which retails for $279, comes with three test vials, a micro-USB recharging cable and a carrying pouch, which fits in a purse or pocket. I was given an extra 12 vials for review purposes.

I’ve never been camping, but when I daydream about being more outdoorsy, I can picture myself with all sorts of gear for both utility and protection. The problem is that too much gear weighs you down. Conrad Sayer of Australia has designed a modular 5-in-1 multi-tool that eases the burden of carrying too much gear but provides the essential tools you’ll want and need. [click to continue…]

You’ve no doubt been hearing about the total solar eclipse for many weeks now. It’s a big deal because it’s the first solar eclipse to cross the entire continental United States in 99 years. All this time, you have probably been telling yourself to read up on the subject and order some special solar eclipse glasses so you can experience what might be a once in a lifetime event. If you actually ordered the glasses, have your DSLR camera, 600mm telephoto lens and tripod ready to go, then yay for you. You get a special geek star award for always being prepared. What do the rest of us procrastinators do on Monday so we won’t feel left in the dark (literally)? [click to continue…]

We’re in the middle of remodeling the exterior of our house. It had wood painted wood siding and it’s currently (I can hear the contractors hammering right now…) getting vinyl siding. As luck would have it, a few weeks ago SANSI contacting me to ask if I might like to review their 30W LED Security Motion Sensor Outdoor Light (model C2440-FW). Since we’ve been actively replacing all the indoor incandescent lights with LED lights, I was happy to start the process outdoors as well. Let’s see how the update turned out. [click to continue…]

You Gadgeteers all remember wired earbuds, right? What am I saying – everyone gets a pair of these with their phone, even if it’s an iPhone 7 with no headphone jack! The quality of those bundled earbuds, however, can vary widely. ThinkSound has been doing a lot of work on improving the sound of headphones and earbuds by incorporating wood enclosures into them, like fine speaker cabinets of old. Their latest creation is the ts03 + mic, which brings light weight and crisp bass together for your music and phone talking. Guess who got a pair to test. Yep. This guy!

After four months taking ideas from their fans and frequent flier customers, WaterField Designs has unveiled their new Air Porter carry-on bag. [click to continue…]

When I think high-end luxury leather phone cases, a couple brands come to mind like Vaja and Orbino. So how is that I’ve never heard of or seen the leather cases from Alto? If you’ve never seen them either, let me introduce you to what might be your next favorite iPhone 7 Plus case. [click to continue…]

Do you march to the beat of your own drum, not satisfied to blend in with the rest of the world around you? Then you are going to love these unique backpacks from MadPax. These bags are not your average run of the mill boring black Walmart special backpacks that all your friends are carrying. Everything about MadPax backpacks is cool… well, except for the name because I keep wanting to call them maxipads. Stop judging me. [click to continue…]

“Selfie Sticks” were all the rage a few years back. And although the craze has dwindled a bit, they are still in use and can definitely still be useful, especially in certain situations. Our family had tried a selfie stick a few years back, but we were very unimpressed with it—it had a cable that connected to the phone to control the phone’s shutter, which was a bit cumbersome, and its quality was low for the cost. When Julie provided the chance to try out the MPow Bluetooth Selfie Stick, its Bluetooth connectivity and some of its other features looked appealing. Let’s check it out! Gadget on!

When I was a kid, I would intentionally break old style glass thermometers just so I could play with the mercury inside them. I had no idea back then that mercury was toxic. I just loved watching the liquid metal separate into balls and then forms back into one blob when the individual pieces touched. With the Liquid Metal Watch from Tokyoflash Japan, you can have a similar experience without the whole poisoning issue.  [click to continue…]
