Parrot Minidrone Hands On: Holy Shit, I Love This Hydrofoil Drone 

In the grand ranking of remote-controlled vehicles, the only thing better than a remote controlled plane is a remote-controlled boat. At least, that’s what I used to think. After playing with Parrot’s new generation of Minidrones, I realize that a remote controlled hydrofoil is the true champion of RC anything. » 6/23/15 4:20pm 6/23/15 4:20pm

Vapium Summit Review: A Sweet Vape That Doesn't Break the Bank

Portable vaporizers these days are all about compromises. Frequently they don’t last long on a charge, they don’t hold enough herb, they’re unwieldy, and more often than not, they taste like shit. So, it’s rather refreshing when a little vape comes along as solves most of those problems while staying well under the… » 4/10/15 4:20pm 4/10/15 4:20pm

Lukla Endeavor Hands-On: An Aerogel Jacket That Doesn't Overheat

The first time I held a piece of aerogel was one of those reality-bending experiences that reorganizes the molecules of your brain a little. It was a block about the size of a Rubix Cube, it looked like a faint wisp of cloud, and it weighed nothing. Not literally nothing—but so little that my body could not perceive… » 4/06/15 3:10pm 4/06/15 3:10pm

Microsoft Surface 3: Slim, Light, and Running Full-On Windows

It took a couple tries, but Microsoft finally had a critical hit with the Surface Pro 3. It was what we wanted the first Surface to be. It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty damn useable. But at $800 (and going up to nearly $2,000), it’s also expensive. The Surface 3 is Microsoft’s attempt to get in on that… » 3/31/15 9:00am 3/31/15 9:00am

Apple's New MacBook Hands-On: Gorgeous, Featherlight, But a Bit Awkward

I just lifted Apple's gorgeous new MacBook with a single hand. For a moment, it felt like I was holding nothing at all. It's so light. With a laptop in my left paw, a DSLR camera in my right, only one of them felt substantial. It's the first of many things to love about Apple's new machine. But it's not completely… » 3/09/15 3:11pm 3/09/15 3:11pm

Holy Shit I Just Played Final Fantasy XV

I just spent two hours playing Final Fantasy XV, which I can confirm is a real video game that actually exists. The good news: it's brilliant in a lot of ways, and from what I've played so far, it really does feel like a Final Fantasy game. The bad news? Well, it's got some serious technical issues, and I'm worried… » 3/07/15 5:59pm 3/07/15 5:59pm

Sony 4K Action Cam Hands-On: Giving GoPro a Run for Its Money

It's been a hard fight for Sony (and everyone else) who is trying to get a slice of that action camera pie GoPro is so effectively hogging. Sony has had some solid cams that offered best-in-class audio, but they've always fallen just a bit short beating GoPro on image quality and ease of use. This week Sony brought me… » 2/09/15 1:45pm 2/09/15 1:45pm

"Uber for Helicopters" Is Gross, Absurd and I Want to Use It Every Day

Helicopter rides are fun and fast; and ridesharing apps are booming. These are the core ideas behind Gotham Air, a helicopter rideshare service that promises to get you from helipad to airport in six minutes. Do you need it? Definitely not. Is it amazing? We tried it — and yes, it absolutely is. » 2/09/15 9:00am 2/09/15 9:00am
