Keyboard waffle iron tops Kickstarter goal just in time for Christmas

It's surely too late to think about getting this item as a Christmas gift, but the last-minute Kickstarter funding of the keyboard waffle iron is definitely proof that Christmas miracles exist. With funding set at $50,000, the deadline for Chris Dimino's unique breakfast food accessory was Christmas Eve, and the situation didn't look good. However, due to a last-minute push from backers, the keyboard waffle iron was successfully funded as of Christmas morning, having raised over $66,000.

Hiro tracker is a Bluetooth ‘dog tag’

Hiro tracker is a Bluetooth ‘dog tag’

We've seen a variety of Bluetooth trackers, some of them with adhesive backs, others with clips or no attachments of any type. Hiro is similar in many ways, but with a different design, being shaped like a dog tag -- though slightly smaller in size. As with a dog tag, there is a hole in the tracker for attaching a lanyard or a key ring, and the device itself allows users to keep tabs on their stuff using a smartphone and related app (iOS and Android).

Stridalyzer smart insoles show how you run

Stridalyzer smart insoles show how you run

Smart products tailored to runners have been cropping up, including the Bionic Runner bike that combines running and cycling into a single hybrid activity. The latest to surface for the marathons among us are the Stridalyzer smart insoles, something users slip into their running shoes. Data from a running session is sent to a related mobile app, which shows stress points, whether the runner has a potentially harmful foot strike habit, pacing, and more. As a bonus, and despite the integrated sensors, the insoles can also be trimmed up to a full shoe size to ensure they fit.

101touch next-gen keyboard is all touchscreen

101touch next-gen keyboard is all touchscreen

Anyone who has ever tried to use a touchscreen keyboard knows immediately the issue with those. The keys lack any tactile feel. Without tactile feel, it's hard to tell if you have your fingers in the correct location for touch typing and it's hard to tell when you have actually pressed the keys. This is why many people opt for external keyboards when they need to type a lot.

MOCAheart portable health sensor nestles in a phone case

Another smart health device has arrived, this one being a thin sensor device independent of pedometers, bracelets, and other typical designs used with fitness tech. Called MOCAheart, the sensor allows the user to check their vitals by pressing a couple fingers over the device, which itself can be fixed to the back of a smartphone using a case. Interestingly enough, the device can also detect hand tremors. As you'd expect, MOCAheart comes with a related app that displays and aggregates the health data.

X PlusOne hybrid drone can zip around at high speeds

X PlusOne hybrid drone can zip around at high speeds

The number of available drones is growing by leaps and bounds, and they all tend to center around the same quadcopter design. They are able to hover over the land and move slowly from place to place, but that does not always meet one's needs, particularly those looking to use the drones for filming purposes. Enter the X PlusOne, a "hybrid" drone that is both a quadcopter and a winged flight machine able to zip around at exceedingly fast speeds.

TorrX smart air pump auto-inflates to the right pressure

TorrX smart air pump auto-inflates to the right pressure

You decide to play a pick-up game, but when you fish the basketball out of the old bin in the garage it is flat and useless. That leads to the air pump, which is a process of trial and error -- you pump up the ball until it looks decent, give it a couple test dribbles, add a couple more pumps again, dribble it a couple more times, add a little more air, and then find that you've over-inflated it and have to reverse the process. TorrX aims to eliminate this process with a dose of smart technology.

Flat Attack charger juices up your devices with AA batteries

Flat Attack charger juices up your devices with AA batteries

More convenient portable batteries seem to be all the rage lately. We've recently seen one thin enough to fit in a wallet, and one small enough to attach to a keychain. Following that latter theme is the Flat Attack, another keychain-bound portable battery for charging small gadgets without carrying a battery brick and charging cable. Unlike the aforementioned keychain-sized portable battery, Flat Attack uses a conventional AA battery instead of an integrated battery, meaning in a pinch you could swap it out with a fresh battery for instant power.

Sunn Light is your own miniature smart sun

Sunn Light is your own miniature smart sun

Winter is here for many of us, and with it comes long cold dark days. Devices designed to simulate the sun are nothing new -- there are many of them that come in the form of alarm clocks -- but Sunn Light is a bit different. Most notably, Sunn Light is big and round just like, you know, the sun. It is also dynamic, not content with merely shining warm light. The brightness level and color is constantly changing to match the sun, something said to "help your body tune" into the rhythms of nature.
