Airless Metal Mesh Tires Awarded R&D 100 Award

Airless Metal Mesh Tires Awarded R&D 100 Award

These tires, constructed out of 800 interwoven load bearing springs, were awarded a 2010 R&D Award for their fabulous new airlessness. This award is also known as the Oscars of innovation, so it's big freaking honor to say the least. This tire was created by NASA and Goodyear, so you know it was going to be a big deal out the door, and was made for use on the moon. Moon tires of the past were still just rubber, rubber that didn't exactly hold up in heat, cold, and solar radiation. These new tires basically don't even care about any of that ol' crap.

JH Audio JH16 Pro Review

JH Audio JH16 Pro Review

In the world of earphones, there are some obvious tiers: the bundled earbuds that came with your PMP or cellphone and should probably be dumped straight away; their mainstream replacements; off-the-shelf in-ear monitors (IEMs); and then custom-molded IEMs. There's also a less publicized hierarchy, of the audio craftsmen behind the IEMs themselves. Ask an audiophile their opinion of Jerry Harvey, and you can probably expect an hour or two of hero-worship; having tested out the new JHAudio JH16 Pro custom IEMs, we now know why. Check out the full review after the cut.

Garmin Edge 800 cycling PND packs custom maps with no calibration

Garmin Edge 800 cycling PND packs custom maps with no calibration

Garmin has outed its latest PND, and the Edge 800 is targeted at cyclists either prone to getting lost or wanting to track their performance.  A compact unit with a 2.6-inch color touchscreen, the Edge 800 comes with a simple twist-on handlebar mount and can track not only position but speed, distance, time, elevation, calories burned, climb and descent.  Pair it with an ANT+ compliant monitor, meanwhile, and you can also record heartrate and speed/cadence (sensor depending).

Using Garmin's Custom Maps software, owners can manage their own topographical data or load on preconfigured packages, such as City Navigator maps, stored on a microSD card.  The Edge 800 also supports satellite imagery, and requires no calibration if moved between bikes: the company says you can simply twist it off the mount and snap it onto a different cycle.

Night Bright Tyre Unleashes Cyglo Tire, DIY Tron Bikes

We can't all be living in a video game. (Even if some of us wish we were.) And, because we can't just go hopping around dark worlds with brightly lit contours, we have to make due with what we have. And thanks to a British-based company called Night Bright Tyre, we can finally be one step closer to having our very own lightbikes. No, they may not be as streamlined as those from the TRON films, but hey, beggars can't be choosers.

NZXT Phantom Full Tower Chassis Unveiled, Available This September

Remember how NZXT said they weren't going out of business? Looks like they were telling the truth, because the company has just announced a brand new full tower chassis for all you power PC gamers out there.

NZXT's saying that this is their most elegant and intelligent chassis designed ever constructed, and considering their plethora of previous models released over the years, that's a pretty bold statement.

Uplink Audio Strap System Makes Solar Panels Flexible Enough to Take Jogging

Uplink Audio Strap System Makes Solar Panels Flexible Enough to Take Jogging

If you're someone who likes to run, whether for fun or exercise (or both), then you know that while headphones are currently the best way to take your music, or whatever it is your listen to, with you, there's always got to be options. And, thanks to this new concept, we can safely say that someone out there will probably be super excited about this. No, it's definitely not as light weight as, say, an MP3 player, or even as unobtrusive as headphones (like these were giving away, right now!), but this shoulder-pad looking device has its endearing features, too.

TRON-Themed Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii Controllers Shown Off at E3

The controllers of video game consoles get themed all the time. It's pretty much an every day occurrence, so you'll have to forgive us if we seem a bit jaded when we talk about them. But, one look at these beauties from the guys handling the TRON remake, and we're willing to take it all back. Even as we write this up, we're still staring at them, probably drooling. We can't tell.
