About 20 Times A Day

I do this with the fridge too. I open it, stare inside, close it… then do it again a few times.

Ugh… it’s a long Monday.

“It’s Tuesday today!”

Oh. Right.

I should get a job where I have to wear pants…

Aeryon HDZoom30 Camera Can Be Mounted On A Drone, Spots Faces From 1,000 ft. Away!

Aeryon_HDZoom30_drone_camera_1

Privacy will soon become a concept taught in history class, considering we’re constantly developing better technology at least partly designed to take it away from us. The Aeryon HDZoom30 Camera is a 620g camera with 30X optical zoom and up to 60X digital zoom on a 20MP sensor, which means it can focus on objects as far at 1,000 ft. away with enough sharpness to recognize a face. It’s mounted on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal which makes the video pretty smooth even from that far away, and since it weighs barely more than 1 lb., it can easily be mounted on a drone. The image below, for instance, pictures the HDZoom30 on Aeryon’s Skyranger drone. And if you want to get an idea of just how mind bending the zooming abilities are, we recommend watching the video.

We’re not sure how much it costs but it’s probably not cheap. Then again, it’s probably incredibly less expensive than the traditional stabilized telephoto lenses mounted on helicopters that law enforcement have been using for years. And that means that soon enough you’ll probably be able to buy one at your local Best Buy.

Oaxis inkCase i6 Puts an eReader Screen On The Back Of Your iPhone 6

inkcase-620x594

Some of you may have looked at the Yotaphone with some lust. You know, it’s that crazy Russian phone with two screens, one of which is an eInk display? Yeah, nice phone, but getting yourself a Yotaphone also means giving up your iPhone 6, and that won’t do. So take a look at Oaxis’ inkCase i6 instead. It features its very own 800 x 480 4.3″ anti-glare eInk display that communicates with your mobile via Bluetooth. This way you can display any number of things while using no power from your device, things like the weather, wallpapers, sports score tracking, etc. And since the eInk only uses power when being updated, the integrated 300mAh of battery, small as it seems, should be enough to last for several days without needing a charge.

There’s no word on price or availability, other than “this spring.”

Windbreaking Foam Balls Keep Your Phone Conversations On The Quieter Side

windblocker-1

As sophisticated as modern smartphone noise cancellation algorithms are, they still struggle against the havoc wind can cause on your phone conversations. So someone thought it would be a good idea to design these Windblocker foam balls, which are designed to prevent wind from getting into your phone’s mic and disrupting your calls. Sure, it kind of looks like a clown costume for your phone… but if you have a really important call to make, outside, it wouldn’t hurt to carry one of them in a pocket, strange looks be damned. They have a little clip that lets them easily be put on or taken off your device and while pricing info hasn’t been revealed just yet, we would be shocked if you were expected to pay anything more than $5-$10 for them.

IKEA To Incorporate Wireless Charging In Many Of Its Offerings

ikea-qi-charging-590x330

Wireless charging is being increasingly included in more and more devices, and it’s about time furniture manufacturers took advantage of this reality. So it’s with great pleasure that we find out about IKEA’s plans to do just that. They’ve endorsed the Qi Wireless Charging standard from the Wireless Power Consortium, and will be rolling out home furnishings with the functionality in the coming months. This means bedside tables, lamps and desks will have a special area on which you’ll be able to simply put down your phone and start charging. No more cables to plug in at night. Considering IKEA is the world’s largest furniture retailer, this move will likely put pressure to make wireless charging ubiquitous, and hopefully one day convince Apple to include it in its handsets, a move it should have made years ago. Of course when they do so, they’ll act as if they invented the thing and call it something different, but in the end it doesn’t matter: cables need to disappear.

“IKEA said the wireless charging home furnishings will be available in Europe and North America this April, followed by a global rollout.”

CupClip Takes The Old And Makes It New Again

Cup-Clip

The CupClip is an ingenious redesign of an old classic. You’ve seen large paperclips that are able to hold a pile of papers together, but the CupClip simply reshaped one of the ears to be able to accept a cup. So now you can simply clip it to the side of a table and place your coffee in it. Granted you could place your cup on the table, but sometimes you need the whole space, you know? And if it’s not coffee, you can stick pens, pencils or other accessories in that cup so it has the potential to be very useful. Considering it’s only $12, we think it’s a worthwhile purchase.

Betabrand Launches Anti-Paparazzi Flashback Collection

anti-paparazzi-clothes-1

We’re not sure how appealing this will be to the common person who isn’t routinely assaulted by paparazzi, but it’s an interesting concept nonetheless. Created by DJ Chris Holmes, the Flashback collection is a line of garments coated in crystal nanospheres that reflect light, which makes the clothing light up when photographed with a flash. This has the effect of ruining photos, by messing up the camera’s exposure settings. When not exposed to a flash, the fabric looks pretty normal. Currently being crowdfunded, the Flashback Photobomber Hoodie requires a $205.20 pledge to own, while the suit jacket pictured above is $406.30.
