HYT H3 watch uses new hydro-electrical movement

Watches with a mechanical movement are very cool. The intricate little gears inside move under power that is usually created by winding and springs inside. Typically these mechanical movement watches have traditional hands that point to the time. The HYT H3 is a watch that has the latest iteration of a hydro-electrical movement that is something very different from what we are used to seeing on a watch.

Exploding Kittens the new Kickstarter backer champ

Exploding Kittens the new Kickstarter backer champ

While the Exploding Kittens card game didn't raise the highest amount of money in Kickstarter history - they were 3rd - they did gather the most backers. At around $35 a pop, users were invited to take part in this crowd-funding campaign which offered a card game similar to War. This new-age War game has users flipping over cards with cartoons on them illustrated by the same fellow who illustrates The Oatmeal. That proved well and above enough for quite a few backers over the past month, that's for certain.

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

My review of the Razer Tactical Bag began in January of 2015, about a month and a half ago. The bag was delivered to me right in time for CES 2015 - easily the most action-packed week for me out of the whole year - for tech, that is to say. During the week I carry a lot of weight. In past years, I've brought bags that weren't up to the task. I've had bags whose handles rip partway through the week. I've had bags that didn't end up having nearly enough space or pockets for organization of oddities. The Razer Tactical Bag was up to the task.

A “digital Dark Age” is coming, warns father of the internet

A “digital Dark Age” is coming, warns father of the internet

When the "father of the internet" says you should worry about digital ephemerality, it's probably time to pay attention. Vint Cerf, currently a VP at Google but better known as one of the men behind the creation of the internet, made the ominous prediction that we face a "digital Dark Age" at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, pointing out the rapid pace of development meant that there was a strong possibility that digital files - from family photos, though vital documents, and more - could be left behind unreadable.

QindredCam wearable camera knows when and when not to shoot

QindredCam wearable camera knows when and when not to shoot

At one point in time, it seemed that Narrative Clip and its kin of lifelogging cameras would be the craze, despite possible privacy issues. Almost two years have passed by and the fad hasn't caught on completely but there is still quite a following. Sadly, the options in this market aren't exactly wide and most if not all of them have one major flaw: they will try to capture *everything*, leaving you with hundreds of photos and videos to sift through. Enter, QindredCam, a wearable camera that tries to be smarter at lifelogging.

Japan’s Henn-na hotel will greet you with human-like robots

Japan’s Henn-na hotel will greet you with human-like robots

Here's another one for the "only in Japan" books. A rather "forward-looking" hotel will be opening in Nagasaki later this July with a touch of high-tech fanciness you only read about in books or see in movies. But aside from the usual amenities you might imagine, there are some features that you can't, or rather, wouldn't want to imagine. In addition to the human staff that the hotel will be employing, it will also make use of 10 robots, three of which will stand, or sit, behind the check-in counter.

Ecuadorian government adopts virtual money

Ecuadorian government adopts virtual money

To get things straight immediately, Ecuador isn't making Bitcoin its official currency. In fact, the cryptocurrency, which is just one form of such digital currency, is banned in the country. Instead, Ecuador will be implementing its own electronic money system, formally known as "Sistema de Dinero Electrónico". The digital payment system, according to government officials, will simply be an addition to its own US dollar-based physical money system, but some experts seem to think that the move might have other motives as well.
