Wearable technology, as it stands, is hampered by several technologies that haven’t quite caught up to their promise just yet. One of the most significant of these is power consumption. These devices use a lot of energy and, more than that, are hampered aesthetically by the breadth and width of today’s battery technology. This is a problem because the stuff we wear, particularly actual...

It’s official. Facebook is now the full owner of Oculus and their marvelous virtual reality hardware, the Rift. It was announced several months ago that they were buying the company for billions of dollars, but you know how those things go. Lawyers have to sign things. Money has to slowly travel to Swiss bank accounts. Now the deal is done as Zuck officially...

Protecting yourself can be a dangerous business. Sure, you can learn martial arts or whatever, but then you run the very real risk of hurting your back. You could buy a gun, but then you run the very real risk of accidentally shooting your penis or vagina off. Mace? That stuff is so 1980s. Snoozeville. If only there was something tech-heavy that helped us protect...

Besides apple pie and crushing economic debt, baseball is just about the most singular American thing out there. We love watching it. We love playing it. We love paying exorbitant amounts of money for cards that depict it. Here’s one thing though. Baseball is pretty difficult. Not just anyone can be a boy of summer. It takes an almost obscene amount of practice and dedication. But it’s...

Smartphones have sure changed the tech landscape over the last decade or so. Can you imagine your life without these gadgets? They are essentially super computers that sit in our pockets all serious-like. The only downside to these pocket computers? They occasionally need to be unlocked via entering a one second long password or so. You could go sans password, if you want those topless sauna pictures...

Members of the military have it pretty tough. All of that wandering around in the dark, trying to find their target as their target scrambles to find them. It’s enough to drive one to drop and give their superior officer twenty. However, wearable technology has been working tirelessly to lessen the load for these brave service men and women. Case in point?...

It’s no secret that Apple has been slaving away on their very own smartwatch. Heck, a lot of people are even using this “secret” as an excuse to hold off on even buying a smartwatch. They want to see what move Apple makes next. After all, they did pretty well with re-inventing the cellular phone, tablet, laptop computer, desktop and mp3 player....

It may be summer now but, if history serves as any indication, that won’t always be the case. Before too long, it’ll be fall and then that mysterious country known as winter. During the chillier months you are going to end up outside for extended periods of time and you are more than likely going to be bored. That’s where music comes in. However, wearing a jacket with a hoodie attachment...

We all love virtual reality helmets like the Oculus Rift. Nobody is disputing that. However, there is one tiny/big problem with the whole VR expensive. What is that problem? Well, while your head and brain are “in the zone,” the rest of you is still holding a video game controller or, even less immersive, a mouse and keyboard. This doesn’t exactly make you feel like you are in the...

Just a few years ago, Bluetooth speakers were either unheard or gigantic monstrosities that sounded like crap. Nowadays, however, you can barely tell the difference between a Bluetooth speaker and a wired speaker. This is fantastic news for me, as I am deathly afraid of cords, wires and, especially, tangled cords and wires. In addition to sounding great, Bluetooth...
