CES 2016: Jaybird’s New X3 and Freedom Wireless Headphones

We’re big fans of Jaybird wireless headphones (they even provided the soundtrack for some of our Ragnar Relay runners), which put out great sound without the hassle of bouncy, tangly wires interfering with your workout. So we were especially stoked to see what advancements Jaybird had in store with their CES announcements. We stopped by their booth to get the low-down on two new products that will be available this spring. The new Jaybird X3 wireless…

CES 2016: D3O Impact Protection

In a convention full of gadgets and gizmos, we stopped by D3O‘s booth to check out their product, which—in its natural state—has a decidedly more organic look than the tech it’s designed to protect. Used in everything from smartphone cases to motorcycle jackets, the D3O material is what’s known as a non-Newtonian fluid; sometimes its properties resemble those of a liquid, sometimes it behaves more like a solid. This unique trait lends…

CES 2016: 3D Printing Continues to Evolve

One of the great things about attending CES annually is not just seeing wild conceptual products, but getting to see how many of those products get refined from year to year, growing from concepts to readily-available consumer goods. An industry where that’s been most visible is 3D Printing. This year, we didn’t see anything as mind-blowing as the debut of the first affordable consumer-level 3D-printer. Instead, we got a look at the iterative advancements being made…

CES 2016: HYDRAO Smart Shower Head

CES 2016: Transparent TVs

Televisions have been getting thinner and thinner every year, bringing us to today’s svelte OLED TVs that measure under a centimeter in depth. An ultrathin TV flush-mounted to the wall blends into existing home decor much better than the huge tube TVs of yesteyear. Even relatively recent plasma TVs are bulky in comparison. But view an OLED TV from the side and it almost disappears. So perhaps the next evolution in TVs will be to…

CES 2016: Faraday Future Electric Supercar

One of the concepts getting the most buzz at CES isn’t a home electronics device or an appliance, it’s an electric car from a company that almost no one has heard of before.  Faraday Future, a California-based electric vehicle startup, pulled the wraps off their concept vehicle, the FFZERO1. With a single look, it’s clear that the FFZERO1 is no electric econobox. It’s not here to compete with the Prius or the…
