Bruno smart trash can has built-in vacuum

There’s a certain pattern to cleaning the kitchen, and some of the last two steps including taking the trash out and sweeping up the floor. While the need to heft the bag of garbage out to the dumpster hasn’t yet been eliminated, the folks behind Bruno are pining to make the dust pan obsolete. Bruno is bid as a smart trash can, and it is notable for one big reason: it has a small slot in the bottom equipped with a vacuum, allowing the user to sweep debris directly into the can using a broom, no bending over or dust pan needed.

nexpaq fulfills the Project Ara dream in a smartphone case

Although a lot of progress has been made on the Project Ara modular smartphone, its fate as a commercial product is still unknown until the day it lands in the market. In the meantime, those who believe in the modular dream might opt to bid their time by supporting this nexpaq Kickstarter. No, it's not another attempt at a modular smartphone. Instead, it is an attempt to deliver some of that same promise through a modular smartphone case that could, in theory, work with any smartphone, with a few caveats.

Impression Pi VR headset update shows off fully 3D augmented reality

CH4 health tracker monitors your flatulence, judges your diet

We've seen many trackers over the years, but this one is likely the oddest yet: it's called the CH4, and it monitors your flatulence to make judgements about your diet. Obviously it is bid as a health tracker, but it eschews the common calories/heart rate/water intake and other parameters commonly monitored by health trackers. As expected, the tracker comes with a related mobile app that keeps track of one's "gases", as the maker says, as well as the daily diet that is associated with it.

Among other things, this new partnership, which the maker says it is excited about it, will bring additional languages to all backers sans extra cost, as well as a DLC that'll include an extra level and boss.

Double Fine’s Broken Age finally whole, part 2 lands April 28

Double Fine’s Broken Age finally whole, part 2 lands April 28

It is, perhaps, an end of an era, both literally and figuratively. Double Fine has finally revealed when it will be shipping the second and final act of its historic adventure game Broken Age. This puts a cap on three years of some quite public and dramatic game development, a game that changed the landscape of Kickstarter forever, and one who may decide the fate of a small studio like Double Fine. The game has been in the hands of backers 24 hours before the fated April 28 launch, and the reviews that will be soon out will probably be as sensational as the game's history.

Ottobox smart plug aims to chop your electricity usage

We’ve seen smart appliances that aim to cut down on the electricity bill, and the latest among them is something called the Ottobox, not to be confused with the Otterbox. The Ottobox is a small smart device that plugs into the wall, and that has a plug of its own for an appliance to be plugged in; there are also a pair of USB ports. The device then connects to the home (or office, etc.) network and communicates with a mobile device loaded with the related mobile app.
