Razer Chroma Is Coming To Electric Cars And Electric Skateboards

Razer‘s ingenious RGB lighting solution, Chroma, was originally conceived as a means of immersive gaming experience. But we heard that Chroma is stepping out to beyond gaming. No. It is not a Razer Chroma Toaster, or any appliance for that matter. It is much bigger than a toaster. Razer Chroma is getting inside cars in China too, as announced by electric car startup Leapmotor in an unveiling event (and reported by Windows Central earlier this month).

Some China Cities Are Using Rocket Launchers To Fight High-rise Fires

Net Guard UAV Concept proposed a novel way of saving people trapped in a high-rise fire, but it did not address the still raging fire that could potentially bring the building down, causing an even more catastrophic event. Aerones Drone seems to have that covered, but alas, it is limited by the length of the hose and tether. While the rest of the world seems to be happy to rely on the existing mitigation systems, such as sprinkle, fire curtain and whatnot, a Chinese company has adapted military tech to develop a radical, new kind of high-rise fire-fighting system.

Waydoo Flyer Lets You “Fly” Over Water With “Aircraft Tech”

You don’t have to because, there is a new “surfboard” that you get on with “surfing” even on perfectly calm days. Meet Waydoo Flyer Electric Hydrofoil Board. The Shenzhen-based company recently debuted the Flyer at the CES 2019 with the aim of making electric/foil boards accessible and easy to handle.

Believe It Or Not, IKEA USA Is Selling Skateboard Too

You can find skateboard being sold everywhere. However, the last place you probably expect to find skateboards is IKEA. Well, as it turns out, Ikea USA indeed do sell skateboards and it is called IKEA Spänst Skateboard Cruiser. Spänst is, btw, no way related to skateboard. It is loosely translated to “elasticity.” Is IKEA trying to say its skateboard is flexible like rubber? That, I do not know. Jokes, aside, Spänst is not quite the name of the skateboard; it is a collection. Continue reading Believe It Or Not, IKEA USA Is Selling Skateboard Too

Klipsch To Reveal Its First True Wireless Earbuds At CES 2019

In addition to the smart sound bars you saw in the previous post, Klipsch is also slated to reveal a range of new in-ear headphones, including this one you see here: Klipsch T5 True Wireless Earbuds, the company’s first true wireless audio earbuds. As with the sound bars, little is known about this little guy. However, what we know is, it will be “powerful in performance, technology, materials and comfort,” notwithstanding its incredibly small size and lightweight.

Free Skate Is Like The Lovechild Of A Skateboard And Inline Skate

In Today I Learn, we found there is such a thing called Free Skates (not to be confused with figure skating’s free skating segment, btw). No. Free Skate does not mean the skates are free. So, what the heck is Free Skates, anyways? Well, it is sort of like a cross between inline skates, AKA Rollerblades, (but with less wheels) and a skateboard. Just imagine a skateboard being split into two halves with each half sporting two wheels in an inline configurations. Continue reading Free Skate Is Like The Lovechild Of A Skateboard And Inline Skate

Meet The Truly Hands-free Electric Skateboard, The Zenboard

Skateboard is old news and electric skateboard isn’t exactly new either, but most electric skateboard we have seen thus far threaded cautiously in the area of control. Almost all of them comes with an external control, a remote of sort, or at least, controllable via an app on your smartphone. Not the Australia’s Zenboard Handsfree Electric Skateboard. Zenboard boldly goes where no skateboard makers dare to go, by going absolutely hands free. Continue reading Meet The Truly Hands-free Electric Skateboard, The Zenboard

If The Dark Knight Ever Need An Electric Scooter, Stator Would Be It

I will be honest with you. I am not a huge fan of electric scooter. Why? Aesthetically, the look has been copied hundred times over. Plus, this form of last mile transportation irks me much because, most riders ride rashly on pavements, putting pedestrians at risks. Then I saw the Stator Self-balancing Electric Scooter. My perception of electric scooter changed forever. I am sure it already did for you too. Stator is not just minimal; it is minimally beautiful. Continue reading If The Dark Knight Ever Need An Electric Scooter, Stator Would Be It
