Another Piece of Star Trek Tech Becomes Real With OnBeep’s Onyx

Post a Comment

At one point in Star Trek’s evolution the flip-phone communicator was extended by a Federation insignia badge on the uniform that when pressed could cue up a conversation between other members of the star ship wearing their own device, and that logic has led to OnBeep’s Onyx.

Haven’s Smarter Door Lock Puts the Deadbolt to Rest

1 Comment

The smart TV, the smartphone, the smart (or stupid) motion action X-box, the smart thermostat, and yes, even the smart deadbolt all pale in comparison to the Haven’s “smarter” door lock in terms of home safety.

haven-smart-door-lock

The perpetrator subtly popped the front door’s deadbolt with ease, and then he was in. The house and all of its domestic treasures, a vintage 1964 Godzilla action figure that guarded an Amazing Spiderman # 21 comic book encased in UV protective plastic, was ripe for the picking.
