Vinli hands-on: A high-octane smart car upgrade

Vinli hands-on: A high-octane smart car upgrade

Shiny new connected cars may be all the rage at auto shows, but not everybody wants, or can afford, to swap their current ride for the latest model. Into that fray steps Vinli, an ambitious startup hoping to upgrade your car with WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, an app store, and the power of the cloud, all for $99.95 and thirty seconds of installation. I took a trip with founder Mark Haidar to find out if it could really be so simple.

Enter the new SoloCam "selfie stick", which functions the same way as other smartphone-centric monopods, but with a big microphone on the end that doubles as a handle for the selfie stick. When using it, the resulting footage shows a microphone in the user's hand and stabilized footage. Joining the microphone are a few other features.

WristBoom: Because a wearable speaker isn’t entirely crazy

WristBoom: Because a wearable speaker isn’t entirely crazy

I was all ready to trash WristBoom, and then I thought of my grandmother. Well, alright, there were a couple of stages in-between, but I had to drop the “cynical geek” persona and think outside the bubble to properly appreciate a chunky Bluetooth speaker you wear strapped to your wrist. And, while I’m still not sure this is the product the world has been holding its breath for, that’s not to say I’m unconvinced by its odd charms.

Ayo smart glasses pipe artificial sunlight to your eyeballs

The market is full of so-called "artificial suns", which produce light meant to replicate what you get from the sun. Those who keep odd schedules or frequently travel use the lights to help battle against tiredness or to reset a sleep schedule. A new pair of smart glasses aims to do the same thing, but with a twist: the light is provided near one's eyes, something the makers claim has a bunch of positive effects like making one feel alert at night without interfering with one's vision.

Nuimo, a.k.a. Flow 2.0, can now control your home too

Sometimes, crowdfunding successes come back for another round in the hopes of meeting success again. And sometimes, they do. That seems to be the case for Senic, the very same people who brought the wireless controller Flow to our attention. They've returned to the crowdfuning scene, but this time they are doing things quite differently. First, they've launched on Kickstarter instead of the previous Indiegogo. Second, they changed the name from what should have been "Flow 2.0" to "Nuimo". But most importantly, they've expanded their scope beyond just computers and mobile devices.
