Anki Overdrive Supertrucks Review

Anki Overdrive Supertrucks Review

The folks behind the Anki remote control car group have released a new set of vehicles for all of our racing and smashing needs: Supertrucks. These miniature beasts play in to the Anki system of infrared camera-embedded car racing like hammers in a drawer full of nails, making it a wild new experience to attempt racing cars on the same track.

Dyson 360 Eye Review: A great robo-vac with blind spots

Dyson 360 Eye Review: A great robo-vac with blind spots

Dyson's first robot vacuum arrives with plenty of fanfare, promising more suction than the competition, more flexible trundling on its tank tracks, and smarter cleaning with vision-based navigation. As with all the British icon's products, however, that doesn't come cheap: the Dyson 360 Eye has the familiar grey, blue, and fuchsia plastic of its manually-operated vacuum siblings, and a similarly hefty $999.99 price tag.

Xbox One S Gears of War 4 mini-Review in blood red

Xbox One S Gears of War 4 mini-Review in blood red

This special limited edition version of the Xbox One S is no average re-coloring. The folks responsible for tricking this console out have taken extra steps to make certain the device was no simple skin-job. This device looks like it's been customized personally - cut into by miniature beasts of war with claws of death. This comes from The Swarm - we'll see them again once the game is ready to roll later this month.

Philips Hue Motion Sensor Review

Philips Hue Motion Sensor Review

You can control your connected lighting by app, from your smartwatch, by voice, and even by a good old-fashioned button, but Philips' latest addition to Hue only cares when you're around. The Hue Motion Sensor takes a hands-off approach to smart lighting, triggering scenes across any of Philips' bulbs, lamps, or luminaires when you walk past, either for convenience, security, or both.

Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Gen) Review: Alexa goes everywhere

Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Gen) Review: Alexa goes everywhere

Amazon may have all-but stumbled onto its hit Echo speaker and the smart Alexa assistant that powers it, but the new $49.99 Echo Dot proves the retailer has no intention of letting that momentum slip. Resembling a hockey puck rather than the column of its sibling Echo, the smaller, cheaper Echo Dot actually has two goals: be the new entry-level device for those just getting started with Alexa, as well as making it affordable for existing users to spread her skills around the home.

Star Wars Rogue One Director Krennic’s Shuttle LEGO Review

Star Wars Rogue One Director Krennic’s Shuttle LEGO Review

One of several LEGO sets made for the release of Star Wars Rogue One is here - Director Krennic's Shuttle. Behold, the LEGO Empire's award for Best Dressed in pre-Yavin attire goes to none other than Director Krennic. He'll be arriving in his all-black shuttle to emphasize his white outfit - and cape, of course. This vehicle should remind any hardcore Star Wars fan of the Emperor's own shuttle - and several other three-winged beasts made for only the most powerful of Imperial agents.

Star Wars Rogue One Toys Review : Action Figures #GoRogue

Star Wars Rogue One Toys Review : Action Figures #GoRogue

Today we've got our hands on a number of Star Wars Rogue One toys before they're released - and we're going to share the lot up close and personal. We've got a couple of Black Series action figures, a couple of slightly heavier-duty action figures in the Elite Series from the Disney Store, a couple of Hasbro 2-packs (complete with super-absurd mega-weapons), and some JAKKS Big-Figs to crown the massiveness of this collection off. And, as no modern collection of Star Wars figures would be complete without, we've got a couple of brand new Funko Pop vinyl bobblehead figures as well, all from Rogue One.

bObsweep PetHair Plus robot vacuum review

bObsweep PetHair Plus robot vacuum review

I've been cohabiting with a robot slave, and though bObsweep claims its eponymous PetHair Plus vacuum doesn't mind hard labor, I wasn't convinced it would necessarily be the key to domestic bliss. My experiences with robot cleaners have led me to conclude that they have just as much of an appetite for stray cables and rugs as they do dust and dirt, but with one messy, frequently-shedding kitty in the house and a natural disinclination to vacuum myself, it seemed worth a try.

Nest Cam Outdoor Review

Nest Cam Outdoor Review

Streaming security cameras are probably the most popular gadget in the connected home, and Nest the best known today. After a fairly slow start after its Dropcam acquisition in 2014, Nest finally has an outdoor model, the unimaginatively titled Nest Cam Outdoor. Like the Nest Cam - designed for indoor use - it's $199.99, though for the full range of features you'll need to cough up a monthly or annual subscription.

2017 Jaguar XE 35t AWD R-Sport Review: The claws are out

2017 Jaguar XE 35t AWD R-Sport Review: The claws are out

Things were not off to a good start in "Operation Impress the In-Laws". The Jaguar XJ I had expected, and which promised ample long wheelbase accommodation for their legs, was no longer arriving; instead, Jaguar's brand new 2017 XE R-Sport, the automaker's entry-level sports sedan and rival to the BMW 3 Series, was on its way. My extended family may not be especially swayed by brand cachet, but could the smallest Jag be too compact a kitty to keep four adults happy?

Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link Review: Cleaned air, emptied wallet

Dyson is known for its distinctive home appliances, and yet nothing quite looks as strange as its "bladeless" fans, like the latest Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link. $599.99 gets you the pinnacle of the British engineering firm's HVAC technology, a fan which can not only manage the temperature in your home but promises to make the air cleaner too, complete with app integration.

iPhone 7 Review

iPhone 7 Review

It's ironic, a new iPhone is usually the specter hanging over rival smartphones, but it's the promise of their unannounced successor that looms above the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Mauled even before launch by vocal criticism of Apple's decision to abandon the decades-old headphone jack, and stung by accusations that these new handsets play it safe rather than push the envelope, could 2016's iPhone really be a disappointment?
