This Seemingly Nondescript Belt Is Like The Real-life Batman Utility Belt

Sometimes I can’t help but to think Batman’s utility belt is bullshit. Don’t get me wrong. I am a fan of the cape crusader, but it is hard for me to reconcile with the fact that those tiny pouches can have any real world use. Well, I guess I was wrong because there’s a real world utility belt called Cache Belt that proved that this functional fashion piece can indeed stashed a shit load of EDC. So, how is it even possible, you ask? The magic lies in the single stitched hook and loop design nylon webbing that offers a discreet storage for small items up to 1.25 inch wide.

DJI’s New Foldable Drone Goes Beyond Imaging, It Is A Sport Drone Too

Wait. Is there a drone race going on? Cos’ just last week we saw GoPro’s first ever drone, today DJI is quick to introduce the company’s very own (and first) folding drone called DJI Mavic Pro and boy, is it super compact. When folded down, the 1.64 lbs (743g) DJI Mavic Pro is small enough to be slipped into your bicycle shirt’s back pocket. Yes. It is that small. Even the controller is super compact too, looking much like a game controller but with integrated smartphone holder. While tiny, it is a complete aerial imaging rig that’s no lack of features.

Who Says Xiaomi Has No Innovation? It Has Invisible Fingerprint Reader!

Started out as a low-cost smartphone, Xiaomi have since venture beyond mobile phones, dabbling in a host of gadgets and even appliances like rice cooker and air purifier. While its portfolio may have expanded, some industry watchers and consumers can’t help but to call out copycat as many, if not all, its designs do have uncanny resemblances to big brands like Apple, Samsung and the likes. So, you could say Xiaomi is never really an innovator. However, that changes today, as it brings forth its new flagship, the Mi 5s (see what we mean?).

DIY Laser Experiment Sends Music To Sound System At 1,450 Feet Away

First we have wireless audio transmission over radio, then Bluetooth and WiFi came along to address our need for short range wire-free transmission. So, what’s next? Well, how does laser audio transmission sounds to you? Impossible? Not quite and as proven by brothers Armand and Victor. Not did the duo demonstrated that laser can be a medium to send music (or to eavesdrop), but it can do so over quite a lengthy distance. So how far are we talking about? 1,450 feet or 442 meters, and over the roof of several houses, and through a treetop before landing Continue reading DIY Laser Experiment Sends Music To Sound System At 1,450 Feet Away

Leafy Savage Electric Motorcycle Is Juiced By Nissan Leaf’s Batteries

We have seen a fair number of creative electric motorcycles, but the Leafy Savage Custom Electric Motorcycle you see here tops all that we have see thus far. For starter, the bike was created mostly by one man, Matt Candler under his outfit called Night Shift Bikes, and perhaps more amazingly, it is a creation of a person who has no real background or whatsoever in bike building until 2006. Matt’s second ground up (and third) custom build is a serious head turner – thanks in part for the skeletal look and also the unmissable bulk at the center of the frame (not exactly idea, but looks cool anyways). What makes this Night Shift Bikes custom electric two-wheeler so unique is, it is essentially a mash up of an electric car and a fuel-guzzling motorcycle.

Meet The World’s Hottest Chip Made From Earth’s Hottest Chili Pepper

If you like very spicy food and think you have taste it all, think again. Also, if you think how spicy a single chip could be, well, we ask you to think again too. If a chip (yes, that’s ONE chip there) claim to be “hot as hell,” such as in the case of the Carolina Reaper Madness Chip from chips maker Paqui, and as one chip per packet, then you know it is, VERY VERY hot. Well, it ought to be, you know, for the company to lay claim as “the hottest chip in the world.” Continue reading Meet The World’s Hottest Chip Made From Earth’s Hottest Chili Pepper

Super Sleek DUOECHO Is One Unit But Two Bluetooth Stereo Speakers

You know Bluetooth speakers? Of course you do and I am sure you also know that those so-called stereo Bluetooth speakers ain’t really stereo because the ‘stereo’ is, in fact, packed into one unit. Now, that’s not exactly stereo, is it? For the sake of portability, it looks that will be the closest solution you can get (to actual stereo, stereo) but not if DUOECHO can help it. The ingenious thing about DUOECHO is, it appears to be a sleek, single unit, but it is actually two speakers that are magnetically adhered to each other for easy of storage and transport. Continue reading Super Sleek DUOECHO Is One Unit But Two Bluetooth Stereo Speakers

Smart Forcops: NYPD Police Officers Patrol In Smart Fortwos

Smart is a cute car and so, never would we imagine it could be sight on the streets of NY… driven by police officers. Anyways, it has happened, I mean the Smart Fortwo as police patrol cars and despite having the requisite police decals on the white paint job and blue revolving roof lamp, the Smart Forcops still pretty damn cute. The Smart Fortwo was inducted to New York City Police Department with consideration for its agility and maneuverability which are comparable to the outgoing three-wheel motorbikes, but with the boon of air-conditioning, spaciousness, and probably safety when it comes to, knock on wood, crashes. Continue reading Smart Forcops: NYPD Police Officers Patrol In Smart Fortwos

Mercedes-Benz’s Future Delivery Vans Will Have Drones To Aid In Deliveries

However, unlike Amazon’s bold ambition, Mercedes-Benz joins force with Matternet to explore the concept of combining both traditional man-to-door delivery using a van with drones.

Venus Optics Has The Weirdest Macro Lens That’s Smaller Than Your Pinky

It doesn’t take a photography enthusiast to know what a camera lens looks like, but this one lens from Venus Optics will surely leave even an enthusiast bewildered. Venus Optics has no doubt broke the lens design convention with Laowa 24mm f/14 Replay 2x Macro Lens. As you can see, this macro is no doubt a little on the weird on of the scale as far as optics are concerned. On one end, it has a regular Nikon and Canon-friendly mount, but that’s as normal as it gets. Beyond the mount, the lens seems to go on a telescopic path, thinning off (in diameter) towards the lens end like Continue reading Venus Optics Has The Weirdest Macro Lens That’s Smaller Than Your Pinky
