Pavlok May Be ‘Shocking,’ But It Could Mean A Healthier You

There are many ways to describe the upcoming wearable known as Pavlok, but probably the best we’ve heard comes from an actual investor, who said the device “combines accurate tracking capabilities, powerful commitment techniques, and ‘on-your-wrist’ reminder triggers to change users’ brains and form the habits they wish they had.” That means if you have a bad habit of hitting the snooze button too many times in the morning, you can wear Pavlok and receive a shock after hitting snooze twice. It also means that you can program it to keep you from doing any one in a number of Read More

The gTar Turns Your iPhone Into The Best Guitar Teacher Ever

While there are a few “smart” products on the market that promise to teach you how to play the guitar quickly and simply, we don’t believe any have used the straight-forward, as-close-to-authentic-as-you-can-get method seen here. By purchasing a gTar, you’re basically buying in to the real thing. Access all music and sounds via iPhone, which docks in the guitar itself and sends signals to each individual fret, resulting in a pulsating light for each note.

Stop Productivity Vampires Dead In Their Tracks With FlipOff

Every office has them — productivity vampires! They’re those people who’d rather be bothering you with a gripe, complaint, or random observation, than actually doing any work. While they can have their use on slower days, you just don’t need them around when in the flow. Thankfully, the FlipOff is here to make sure you get the point across without having to be rude. From the project creators: Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the Read More

The GateKeeper Chain Allows You To Lock Your PC Automatically

How many times do you have to be snooped on by your parents, Facebook-hijacked by your roommates, or hacked by some smart guy targeting a coffee shop before you take proactive steps toward prevention? We understand that part of the problem is a poor selection of security products, but now that the GateKeeper Chain is here, you’re out of excuses. Using Bluetooth 4.0 technology, the GateKeeper Chain locks down your computer whenever you’re not sitting there (automatically), and, via mobile app, will even warn you whenever you’re leaving your keys behind, so no need to do without due to a Read More

The WWE Fighting Game That Might Have Been

Ah, the best laid plans don’t always work out the way they’re supposed to. In an alternate universe, this awesome WWE fighting game could have become a reality, but alas, it stalled out around 2011. Fortunately, Comics Alliance unearthed some of the concept art recently. So rather lament the gigantic tease this is, we’ll just take comfort in the fact that these drawings exist. The concept art was rendered by Rich Lyons. Some of the featured characters include Hulk Hogan, Rey Mysterio, Jr., and, of course, Stone Cold Steve Austin. I would seriously give up the last two video game Read More

Star Wars Episode VII Leaked Footage Is Awesome, Too Bad It’s Fake

Star Wars Episode VII footage has been leaked to the public, and it’s awesome! Unfortunately, it’s not real, and by “unfortunately,” you’ll see what we mean when you witness how realistic these Imperial battleships look in action. The video was actually the product of German YouTuber Frank Wunderlich, who has done quite the convincing job of bringing these vehicles to life in our modern world. According to Mashable, he has merged “footage from the very real Frankfurt Airport in Germany” with imagined versions of the AT-AT Walker, an Imperial Destroyer, and even a newly under construction Death Star. Awesome, my friend. Read More

Geek Wave: Watch Out iPod, Things Just Got Real

The iPod revolutionized the way we collect, carry, and listen to music, but it has always failed in one regard: optimum sound quality. Oh sure, it’s got a passable sound, and you’re not going to be unable to head-bang; but if you’re an audiophile, it’s just not there. Enter Geek Wave. Their portable music player plays every format of audio file from MP3 to DSD 128. Storage-wise, it has a staggering 2TB, which is enough to hold 5,000+ Hi-Rez tracks or 50,000+ CD quality tracks. And if that’s not enough for you, you can double the capacity because Geek Wave Read More

WEDG Promises To Be ‘The Most Secure, Complete Cloud Solution’

The WEDG promises to be a revolutionary cloud email and storage solution. It has been developed from the ground up with enhanced security and privacy at its core, though who knows this day and age? While the NSA busies itself with intercepting hardware and installing backdoors for spying, that’s American product, and this comes from overseas. We’re not sure how easy it’ll be for them to do the same with WEDG once it starts shipping. See, this is a Kickstarter project, so it’s entirely possible the transactions would be harder to get to than your typical online purchase. The WEDG is Read More
