There’s a new documentary series in development called Artist Depiction about NASA artists and their visions for the future. Or, in many cases, their past visions of the future. And it all looks incredible.
When all digital spaces are controlled by liberal snowflakes, how’s a guy supposed to earn a living promoting hate online? Three new crowdfunding sites think they have the answer.
The Nintendo Switch seems like it could be the perfect portable gaming console—were it not for the bulky dock required to connect it to a TV. That’s why gamers have gotten excited about a pair of compact Switch HDMI adapters currently being crowdfunded, but you might be better off spending your money elsewhere.
In a time when your average smartphone can capture immersive 360-degree photos using a clever app, how can consumers justify spending $600 on a spherical camera that does the same thing? It turns out they can’t, which is why the creators of the Panono have filed for bankruptcy, and are in the process of selling off…
Deep Space Nine has been both praised and derided as the “Black Sheep” of the Star Trek universe. Now, almost 25 years after the series debuted, some of the shows stars and writers are coming together to make a documentary all about where DS9 took us, as well as where it would’ve gone if it had gotten another season.
Last night, 96 companies filed legal documents that object to President Trump’s Muslim ban. But they’re not just doing it because it’s the right thing to do. The filing makes it clear that Trump is disrupting business.
Until Apple stops chasing thinner iPhone designs at the cost of battery life, trying to find a way to keep your device charged will just be a way of life. But if you don’t mind adding a little bulk to your smartphone, a new iPhone case will ensure you can always be charging whenever an outlet is nearby.

Aside from the pointlessly short controller cables, the only other complaint we have with Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition is that it only comes with 30 classic games.

The more features that fancy smartwatch on your wrist has, the worse its battery life will be. But what if instead of needing to be charged every night, your smartwatch harnessed and converted your own body heat into electricity to keep it running?
One reason a product ends up on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo is because companies, or investors, have deemed it too dangerous to bring to market.

Why fight the crowds, wade through mud, and spend the night in an uncomfortable tent when Wicked Lasers has created a compact laser light show that syncs to your music, turning your living room into a music festival with all the comforts of home.
With BattleBots back on TV, you’ve probably got a lot of armchair opinions on how to build a bot that would easily win the tournament. The only problem is your complete lack of electronics and engineering know-how. With the Ganker robot, you don’t even need to know how to solder to build, customize, and battle your…
Crowdfunding campaigns often get a bad rap for vaporware and scams, even though the vast majority come through in the end. That bad rep comes from projects that get creative with the truth and the laws of thermodynamics, such as this slightly glorified USB meter.
Matches are a great way to start a fire when you don’t want to rub a bunch of sticks together, but their short burn time makes them terrible when you just need a little light. Here’s a better idea: a matchbook full of tiny disposable LED flashlights you can keep tucked away for when you need some emergency lighting.
If your morning commute becomes a struggle after an overnight snowfall, maybe you just don’t have the right gear. Wrangling a snowboard or a set of skis into the office isn’t practical, but a pair of sleds that strap to your legs? Suddenly you’ll start looking forward to blizzards.
