Deck the Graves: Zombie Christmas Ornaments

Four Zombie Christmas Ornaments

The Walking Dead invades your tree this Christmas! Well, sort of. So these undead zombie ornaments don’t exactly feature characters from the hit TV series and comic book franchise, but no one needs to know. They come in sets of four, with a bloody reindeer and killer snowman accompanying a horrific-looking elf and an undead Santa.

They’re just dying to be hung from your tree this year…dying. Get it? (insert groan here.)

China’s Baidu To Launch Dubike Smartbike

baidu-dubike-2014-11-26-01

Forget Smart Watches, they’re very 2014. With 2015 on the horizon, the new thing could be Smart Bikes. At least that’s what China’s online services giant, Baidu, seems to be hoping. Not that they’re betting the farm on it, but with the launch of the Dubike (in collaboration with Tsinghua University’s design department), they’re at least putting a credible effort behind what looks to be a solid high-tech bicycle. The Dubike has sensors to determine heart rate, pedal rate, pedal pressure, and a bunch of others, with the aim of digitizing the entire cycling experience. Regenerative braking fills up the batteries, which in turn power all the electronics on board, as well as your own, should you wish to charge these. There’s no pedal assist however, so if there’s a steep hill ahead, you’re on your own.

There are no details on pricing or availability, but word is Baidu hopes to have it on the market by the end of the year. Which market? Most likely just Asia, if not China only. But hey, maybe its existence will encourage others to push ahead in this field.

The Anatomy Of Shows

anatomy-of-shows

It’s no secret that TV shows follow a formula. Ever wonder what it is, for various shows? This is John Atkinson’s take on that. We think it’s particularly accurate, regardless of how cynical you think we might be. And that right there, is the reason we download or stream anything we decide to watch.

Trunkster Suitcase Is Packed With Modern Digital Convenience

trunkster-luggage

Major luggage manufacturers are going to start playing catch-up soon if things like the Bluesmart suitcase takes off. Now there’s another entrant in this increasingly crowded field, and it’s called Trunkster. This one doesn’t have any zippers, opting instead for an easy-open sliding door. On the tech side, there’s a built-in scale as well as a 3 Amp, 15,000 mAh battery pack to charge your devices. A $40 option even gives you GPS tracking abilities, in case your suitcase ends up with Nermal in Abu Dhabi. An Aluminum and polycarbonate build ensures your stuff doesn’t get crushed in the cargo hold, and a hidden compartment keeps important documents in a slightly safer spot.

It’s a $295 pledge for the carry-on, or a $335 one for a checked Trunkster.
