2nd Generation BiTool Now Gets A Super Cool Magnetic LED Flashlight

Remember the BiTool Magnetic Multi-tool from Cycop we spoke so highly of? Well, it is back with a new iteration and it is called BiTool 2.0 Lit. To be honest, we didn’t think BiTool needs any further tweaks, but the folks over at Cycop managed to find something to improve on. For starter, it is a more compact, lighter, touts even stronger magnets, and it now has more functions, including a nifty, detachable flashlight. The same rapid deployment of tool bits, along with magnetic mechanism, are carried over and like its predecessor, it features a robust magnetic ratchet system that has 180-degree of freedom that allows BiTool 2.0 to work even in the tight spaces and the cylindrical body is lined powerful neodymium magnets so screws and bits can stick to the sides.

Bambooti Now Rocks Stone MacBook Covers Made Of Actual Stones

Belgium-based Bambooti is now is rocking real stone MacBook covers. I know. Laptop covers made out of real stone aren’t new at all. You can find quite a few companies touting them, but I am just going to let you in on this since it is on Kickstarter, which means they are usually going at significantly lower prices. So, how much are we talking about? We are talking about €65-75 (around US$72-83), or €35-45 (~ US$39-50) for the smartphone version. So, yes. Bambooti’s new collection has your smartphone covered too. As said, stone covers aren’t new, but still, we thought we should highlight some of the features Bambooti has to offer.

Lambo-ish 680 HP 4-Door Electric Supercar, Elextra, Will Launch In 2019

If you have been longing for a performance ride that looks and performs like a supercar, but without bearing the guilt of stifling this little blue marble of ours, well, then the Elextra 4-Seat 4-Door Electric Supercar may be what you have been looking. As far as look is concerned, we can’t help but to see a tint of Pagani and Lamborghini silhouette in Elextra’s first ride. Though aesthetically uncanny, it does differentiate itself from those exotic rides by going family-friendly. How so? Well, if you look closely, it actually has four doors and on the inside, it is a full-fledged four-seater. Also, it has got four-wheel drive too. Sweet. Love the shape and also love the fact that it allows me to carry more than one girlfriend at a time. Not that I have that many, but you know, just in case. Continue reading Lambo-ish 680 HP 4-Door Electric Supercar, Elextra, Will Launch In 2019

Google Lens And WorldSense Standalone VR Headsets Announced

Well, what do you know? Using your phone’s camera is going to even more fulfilling soon. No. We are not talking about new selfie technology that will make you look prettier (although that can be deemed fulfilling too); it is a lot more than that. It is a new vision-based computing capability found in a new initiative called Google Lens. Notice how Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai never refer Google Lens to as a product, but an initiative at this year’s Google I/O? And that kind of make me skeptical, but more on why later. Now, on why Google Lens is awesome. Continue reading Google Lens And WorldSense Standalone VR Headsets Announced

I Bet You Didn’t Know Apple Has A Patent For A Pizza Box

Apple, like so many big corporations, has the addiction for patent. The Cupertino-based tech giant may not be the biggest patent holder among tech companies, but it has a significant number of them and what this means is, the things that get patented can sometime turns out to be rather quirky, like for examples, a paper bag and even a pizza box. Yup. You heard that right. A pizza box, but being a patented pizza box, it is certainly not your usual run-of-the-mill brown cardboard-based square box. In fact, Apple’s very own pizza box, which the company has been using in its cafeteria, makes a lot more sense because it is round and as we all know, pizza is round.

Zillion Wallet Is Sleek, Slim, And It Charges And Find Your Phone Too

I love what I see when I first lay eyes on Zillion Wallet, a wallet which claims to be the “world’s smartest, slimmest wallet,” but the truth be told, the market is saturated with minimal wallets. If the market is saturated, it is saturated and so, it won’t help whether or not it boasts unique features like RFID blocking, and/or even a battery built into it, or has a sleek pitch video that looks like plenty of money was spent on producing it – like what Zillion apparently did. So, yeah. It was true that I was drawn to it mainly by the pitch video our source has posted on its Facebook page. Ok, maybe the beautiful, super slim form does play a part too.

This Gorgeous Chunky Diver Watch Has A Big-ass Interchangeable Bezel

Bear with me for a while for I maybe a little biased here. You see, like many modern homo sapiens, I have a penchant for wrist worn timepiece – particularly, those big-ass wrist watches and although I may not take to the deep blue as much (say hi to the sharks for me), I do appreciate quality diving timepieces as much as any regular diver. While divers love them for its practical intents, I just love the fact that it is huge and uncomplicated (unlike aviation examples). So, naturally, when a hat tip on a big, chunky diving watch called Heavy Armor from Hong Kong-based watchmaker, DELTAt (pronounced as ‘delta’ ’t’) dropped in our inbox, I knew I have to talk about it here. Continue reading This Gorgeous Chunky Diver Watch Has A Big-ass Interchangeable Bezel

Israel To Test Wireless Charging Road That Charges EV As You Drive

Remember we are elated that electric highway is a reality, but at the same, disappointed as it is not we have imagined? You know. Overhead electric lines and pantograph-equipped vehicles are not quite what we have in mind of electrified roads, but the good news is, there’s hope for electric highways that are a whole lot less electric tram-ish. A collaboration between Israeli government and a U.S. company is working towards an alternative which will see wireless charging element being embedded into the roads and we all know what means: the future is almost here.
