Robot vacuum cleaners are very cool little devices that have been around for a long time now. The Roomba was my first experience with one of these things and it worked surprisingly well. There are all sorts of robot vacuums now from different companies. The most recent offering we took a hands on look at was the Neato XV-15 vacuum. Chris found the little vacuum expensive, but a solid choice if you want a robot vacuum.

Neato XV-15 Robot Vacuum Review

Lay down your Dyson, unplug your Hoover and send Henry to the knackers' yard. Fresh from showing how much it sucks in the US, Neato's XV-15 robotic vacuum cleaner is on its way to Europe to assassinate dust bunnies there, too. Meaner looking than a Roomba, according to Neato the XV-15 is cleverer than its rivals too, fighting dirt not only with suction but with lasers. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Blacklight Trick Print Presented by Kobundo

Blacklight Trick Print Presented by Kobundo

Printing - what in the world is SlashGear talking about printing for, that's just for graphic design and artwork, right? I say thee nay! This is totally sweet and everyone's going to love it, I'm telling you! This project involves Kobundo, a group that call the following method Trick Print, it being a method of printing which combines luminous RGB ink with regular CMYK ink in a single pass. What's this mean to the lay person? It means that instead of having to lay down CMYK colors from their cartridges first, then RGB second (something noone would do anyway,) they've figured out a method for lying down two color sets at once.

Pivot Power Strip by Quirky Makes Charging Easier

Pivot Power Strip by Quirky Makes Charging Easier

We have all been there, 30 outlets, but only able to use 6. Nothing is more frustrating than buying a monster power strip with 30 or more outlets only to find most of them are un-useable. Not because there is something wrong with the outlets, but the shape of the power adapter you are plugging in ends up covering 2 or 3 additional outlets. Then there are those fat power adapters that can only be plugged in from one angle and naturally that angle makes almost half the power strip useless. Pivot Power, from Quirky has a solution. Pivot Power is a flexible power strip that can help reduce some of that frustration.
