This Levi’s Jacket Not Only Look Smart, But It Is Actually Smart

The denim jacket you see is from denim apparel maker, Levi’s. It may not look like much, but it could very well be the most high-tech jacket after the real-life Marty McFly’s self-drying jacket.

FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

The life-logging camera fad is over. It didn’t last long, did it? But why? My best guess is, having a camera stuck on you isn’t half as fun, plus it probably make folks you come across uncomfortable knowing that you may be filming them. The solution? FOMOcamera. Billed as the most wearable and customizable camera, FOMOcamera is basically a badge camera. In other words, it is a camera incognito as a badge in whatever design you fancy. Perfect for ladies for capturing men in the act of leering at their breasts instead of their eyes when conversing with them. Damn. I’d better stay away from ladies wearing a badge like this for I may be caught in the act. Sorry, can’t help it. Most men are hardwired to detect beauty and I am not going to pretend I am an exception. Continue reading FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

However, a new kind of motorcycle helmet, called CrossHelmet X1, aims to change that. Continue reading CrossHelmet Heightened Your Senses With 360 Vision And Sound Control

Apple Watch Series 3 Has Built-In Cellular, So You Can Ditch Your Phone

Tim Cook kicked off the September 12 Apple event with a touching tribute to Steve Jobs. Aptly, the event was held at a theater named after the late visionary co-founder of Apple. The intro was a break from the tradition where Tim would go on to boast about sale numbers, user-ships and of course, retails. Retails it did touched on, but the product highlights was lead by Apple Watch, which Cook claims overtook Rolex to be “the number one watch in the world.” Continue reading Apple Watch Series 3 Has Built-In Cellular, So You Can Ditch Your Phone

Sometime, a missed opportunity may not be a bad thing at all. Such is in the case of the real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy we first saw last year. This post-apocalypse smartwatch of sort was introduced with a hefty $350 sticker and it is essentially a replica of the in-game device, but has real-life smartwatch functionalities instead.
