If you’ve been paying attention to the world of wearable technology over the past couple of years, and since you are on this blog you probably have, you can’t help but notice the propensity of smart watches and smart bands. They usually offer similar functionality, tracking your vitals and workout routines. However, what if you don’t want to strap on something new in order to get...

This has been a fantastic year for technology that was featured in the 1989 hit Back to the Future Part II. First of all, an actual hoverboard has been making the rounds these past few weeks. This is not a hoax, or even a scam. It’s a real, working hoverboard that uses magnet technology. So, one wonders, since we now have hoverboards, where are our self-lacing shoes? Wasn’t that promised...

Once upon a time there was a sad, lonely little smartwatch industry, with nary an Apple product to call its own. The masses screamed out as one, like that one scene in Star Wars, to the gigantic multinational technology company. They wanted their iWatch and they wanted it now. Well, they got what they wished for. A few months back Apple finally announced their very...

Earrings, usually meant for ladies or your one cool guidance counselor, have been auspiciously absent from the wearable technology boom. Why not, one wonders? They are already usually made out of some kind of metal, which makes it the perfect foil for microchips and all of that jazz. Of course, this is not entirely true. Some tech artists out there have begun using the humble earring as their playground....

Since the dawn of time, man has stared toward the heavens and wondered aloud if we’d ever be able to use watches to order and track delivery pizza. The years, and centuries, dragged on with nary a watch-based pie delivery in site. Mankind began to use hope, instead focusing in on merging food items to create different, creepier, food items. Cronuts and ramen...

Running at night can be one of the peaceful ways you can get some much needed exercise. The air is crisper. It is generally cooler. The picturesque vistas are that much more, um, vista-y. However, there is one significant downside to running at night. It isn’t the safest thing to do in the world. There are these giant machines known as automobiles being driven by fallible creatures called humans who occasionally run clean over nighttime runners. Thus the world of high visibility activewear was born. However, most of these frocks...

If there’s any one piece of pop culture that has sort of propelled us toward our high tech future, it would have to be the Star Trek franchise. What is Google Glass if not Geordi LaForge’s visor in TNG? What is Oculus Rift if not an attempt to finally get the holodeck? From potential tricorders to universal translators, the list goes on and on. One of the tentpole technologies seen in...

Walking. It’s something even the laziest among us do each and every day. We have to, at the very least, walk to and from the fridge during mammoth Netflix sessions. However, walking is frustratingly easy to do incorrectly. Too much incorrect walking and you’ll end up hobbled and afraid, cursing to the heavens your knee and back pain. How can we be sure if we are walking correctly, however?...

Sony is one of the biggest tech companies in the world. They have their hands in HD televisions, computers, stereo systems and, uh, just about anything else you can think of. Also, in case you need a refresher, they make a little gadget known as the PlayStation (PS4 is current market leader.) So, of course, they’ve been dipping their cute little toesies into...

Everybody knows that kids are pretty good at this whole technology thing. As a matter of fact, I remember being an early Internet whiz kid while my dad asked me if Internet and e-mail were the same thing. So, being as how the younger set take to technology like a duck to water, shouldn’t we start to develop pieces of technology with them in mind? That’s...

Most of the time, here at Crunchwear, we like to cover wearable technology that is pretty functional. Fitness trackers, smartwatches and other odds and ends usually fall into this camp. Once in a while, however, we like to shine a light on something that is remarkably fun but also remarkably, uh, useless. After all, we can’t get to a fully realized high tech...
