Most UAV owners live happy, litigation-free lives. But others continue to ruin things for us, by flying over wildfires or playing chicken with airliners. A new feature for 3DR’s Solo drone will aim to change all that.
Rock climbing can be divided into a crazy mess of sub-genres: top-roping, sport, trad, and about a thousand too bizarre to name. But they almost all rely on ropes to catch you if you fall. There is, however, another way: severing the nylon umbilical, and climbing rope-free above water instead.
The Solo Traveler lid takes in to account human anatomy, ergonomics and functionality in a simple and elegant way. It is very hard to improve upon this form-follows-function design.
Emily Richmond has been mistaken for Christ, had close shaves with pirates, speared her dinner and made water from a solar still to survive. We caught up with her in Borneo.
The world's largest message-in-a-bottle has taken to the seas, but it's not a call for rescue or some kind of timeless secret. Its message is just "drink our soda" but damned if it isn't still kind of cool.
Sipping too many adult beverages out of a red solo cup is a rite of passage in becoming a full-fledged human being. We've all done it. But have you ever wondered what the lines of a red solo cup mean? They're measurements for different types of alcohol.
The worst part of doing laundry isn't the actual laundering, but the hour it takes to cram your clean clothes back into your closet. The SOLO hanger makes that a bit easier, by folding in half to slip into (and quickly out of) your collars. [Quirky]
Antonia Banderas is returning to the director's chair for an interesting film penned by Band of Brothers scribe Erik Jendresen. He'll play a Spanish colonel who is suffering from PTS, and apparently Solo deals with the future of solitude. [Variety]
We traveled to the desert wilds of Vegas, to watch ioSafe literally GO CRAZY in their thirst to prove that their Solo SSDs are tougher than Rambo. It survived being set fire to, drowned and crushed under 25t of weight.
I was taken to a Vegas house off the strip. There's a fluorescent green pool, a purple jacuzzi. No strippers in sight—it was time to set a fireproof hard disk aflame.
Here's the humorous David Pogue singing about a world without Apple in a way that only, well, David Pogue could pull off.
Sure, ergonomic designs are sometimes more whacky rather than useful, but I reckon the Kinesis Freestyle Solo falls into the latter category. Apparently it's the first Mac keyboard that allows you to fully separate it into halves. Why'd you want to do that? To adjust the keys into a wrist-friendly, RSI-reducing…
Of all the solar powered gadgets we've shown you recently, I'd have to say this is the most elegant. The Intelligent Forms SOLo is a lounge table (can we call it a coffee table?) and is simply designed to soak up the sun, turning it into stored power so you can charge your gear. Apparently left for a year in a…
Grilling with gas is the way to go even if you have to use a propane tank, and here's a gas version of the Eva Solo Barrel Grill that hides that funky-looking canister out of sight where no one will be the wiser. The grill is all stainless steel through and through, and has a minimalist look that might go well with…
"Man, it's like a sauna in here." You'll be making this hilarious joke to yourself on a daily basis while engulfed in the Solo personal sauna. This is essentially a tube-like tent that will get all hot and frothy so you can sweat away all of that negative karma you received from a hooker earlier in the day. The Solo…
