Geek Weekly: Batman Golfs With The Gotham Golfcart

Post a Comment

If you were wondering how the dark knight could possibly go out and about in daylight on the sunny slopes of a lush, green golf course it will come as no surprise that the Gotham Golfcart was constructed to provide an armored ride to that dangerous 18th hole.

Initial thought: geek-gasm. This thing is in production right now. Order if you dare.

The only issue is that the billionaire Batman alter ego Bruce Wayne is needed just to be able to afford this Christopher Nolan Bat inspired Batmobile turned golf cart.

Post a Comment

We’ve all been there — stuck in a boring airport, trying to entertain ourselves with laptops, phones and tablets, but fearful of the their ever dwindling battery lives. And what about the modern business-person, their head in their hands, a dead battery standing between them and their phone calls and emails? GoPlug to the rescue!

GoPlug Gadizmo

GoPlug is a range of travels bags containing a lithium ion polymer battery, standard and USB charging ports, and an extension cable. It’s a simple idea, but surprisingly the incorporation of these charging technologies into a bag is a first, claims GoPlug’s creator Josh Cross.

Geek Weekly: Run In With R2-D2 Infrared-Projecting Keyboard

Post a Comment

Don’t get me wrong, having any R2-D2 that projects an image is freakin’ cool, and one that puts out an infrared keyboard for Star Wars buffs to type with is even better.

But come on, Runatown, $330? REALLY? Screw that. This R2 is too damn expensive for far too little.

Try not to misunderstand fellow Jedi Alliance members, I LOVE this badass little droid.

I want one in the worst way to role out on desks across the world.

Feeling Sleepy? These Smart Glasses Will Help Your Body Achieve Optimum Performance

Post a Comment

If you experience that afternoon slump due to an excruciatingly lackluster 9-to-5 office job and you need a reminder to get more coffee percolating, smart glasses by Japanese company Jins Meme may be just what the doctor ordered.

Jins-Meme

With its six-axis acceleration sensor, the smart glasses can recognize electrical potentials (Electro Oculography) prompted by the movement of eyes (it can tell which direction your eyes are shifting to and how much you’re blinking). The sensors are located in the ends of the frames, bridge, and nose pads.

It’s a very convenient device because it fills multiple functions. By alerting you when your energy is dipping, you can take a break to refuel yourself during long drives— thereby keeping you safe from possible oncoming sleepiness-induced danger.

LifeLogger, the Wearable Camera that Lets You Relive Memories as Accurately as Possible

Post a Comment

If Snapchat’s distinguishing feature is its transience, its disposable moments captured and shared for someone else’s brief viewing, the antithesis is the aptly named LifeLogger. Instead of transmitting these moments and then deleting them (most likely because they are too embarrassing to have an eternal record of), LifeLogger lets you and others linger over your past frolics and milestones.

lifelogger-camera-family

The wearable camera, worn on a headband that extends across the back of your head, shoots 720p 30fps video, as well as 5-megapixel stills, and records up to eight hours of your day. You can live-stream your footage and stills via USB or over Wi-Fi to the web so “[y]our friends will have a front row seat to your life at the push of a button,” the website states. LifeLogger’s Kickstarter campaign started a week ago and ends July 1. The company hopes $150,000 is pledged by this time.

What happens if you go beyond the Bluetooth range? You’re screwed.

Seriously, traverse beyond the XY’s reach and you become at the mercy of anyone else who has the “XY Find It” app, because your own phone sure as shit will not let you in on where the beacon and your precious puppy have gone. That is my only gripe.

Skepticism over functionality, the trendy hipster-lovin’ solar/green thing, and battery life should come to a crashing halt with Solar Roadways’s amazing . . . well . . . solar roadways.

So do they work?
