Soundlazer Snap speaker beams directional audio at your head

A regular speaker is something that we can all understand, you connect it to a smartphone or stereo system, and you can hear the music all over a room or home.

Dexmo exoskeleton gloves can give you all the VR feels

Virtual reality is fast becoming commoditized with the rise of consumer-ready VR goggles like the Gear VR or, in the near future, the Oculus Rift.

RogerVoice subtitles phone calls for the hard-of-hearing

We often take for granted what we are able to use our smartphones for because we are physically capable of handling them. Luckily, there are those like RogerVoice who are taking up the banner for others, especially those with hearing problems who still want to use their phones for what they are originally intended to be used for: making calls.

Inventables believes its done just that with Carvey, not so much a 3D printer as a 3D carver, domesticating the same sort of CNC processes as big-name firms use to craft laptop casings, unibody smartphones, and jewelry.
