BitBite smart earbud monitors your eating habits

BitBite smart earbud monitors your eating habits

If you've gotten your fill of health-tracking wristbands and jewelry and are wondering what else you can monitor, there's the BitBite, a smart earbud of sorts that keeps track of your eating habits and lets you know when you need to lay off the midnight snacks or boost the size of your lunch. It does this by tracking chewing, and tosses in things like voice recognition, which allows the user to say what they're eating for it to be properly logged in the related app.

InCharge USB cable snaps to your key ring

InCharge USB cable snaps to your key ring

Keeping your devices charged can be a hassle, depending on how often you're out and about. Most issues are solved by carrying around a USB cable for those opportune moments when a charging slot is available, but the cable itself is unwieldy. You can go with a spring-loaded charging cable to reduce the bulk, but if you forget to put it back in your bag or grab it before going out, you're back to square one. That is where the new inCharge charger comes in.

Introducing Neals: one Nerd Rapper’s aim for a multimedia retrofuture

Introducing Neals - an hour-long musical animated movie based on a Nerd Rap musical experience. It launches today. It's the 5th of November, and this date hasn't been chosen randomly. Just like the real Guy Fawkes Day, and previous celebrations, today was chosen by YT Cracker to exemplify the outline of the story he's attempting to tell. Introducing Neals is a "retrofuture," says Bryce Case JR, aka YT Cracker, a place where you'll hear the story of "the open source movement, hacktivism, government surveillance, and net neutrality with familiar 1980s tropes and familiar 1980s corniness."

Don’t Move tags stick to anything and alert if disturbed

Living in shared accommodations can be a hassle, as can working in an office or any other number of situations where people are prone to getting in your stuff. There are tricks to determine if something has been tampered with: tape over a drawer seam, a penny precariously balanced on an edge. They're archaic and not terribly accurate, among other things, and now fully obsolete thanks to the roster of connected devices that abound. The "Don't Move" Bluetooth tags, a new product being funded on Indiegogo, may stand chief among them all.

Hardcore: an action film styled like an FPS game

Hardcore: an action film styled like an FPS game

When we watch movies, we expect them to follow a certain conventional style; the same goes for FPS video games. YouTube is full of videos themed after the latter, mixing live action with the first-person-shooter style common in games like those in the Call of Duty franchise. Not many of those videos match the quality and consistent styling of a new live-action movie tease called "Hardcore", which hopes to ultimately be the "First Ever Action POV Feature Film", according to the maker's Indiegogo campaign.

Cocoon smart monitor listens for shock waves to detect intruders

Another connected home security device has surfaced, this one designed to be both simplistic and highly sensitive to when a problem arrives. It achieves this sensitivity using what the makers call SUBSOUND technology, which is said to allow the device to detect motion in a different room, no other sensors needed. This is joined, as you'd expect, by a smartphone app that lets you peek through the Cocoon's integrated camera. If someone is poking around who isn't welcomed, there's an alarm that can be triggered, as well.

Reddit dabbles in crowdfunding with new “Redditmade” site

Reddit has jumped aboard the crowdfunding train, doing so with the launch of a new website called Redditmade. Like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, Redditmade lets users set up funding campaigns for projects ("You can create almost anything you want ," says Reddit), which users can then fund if they're so inclined. Campaigns that reach their goal in 30 days will survive, while those that don't will fizzle away into the silence. Dozens of projects are already up, most of them in the form of witty t-shirt designs.
