  • The Robots of CES Asia

  • Jump Into Smart Skipping Ropes

  • When it’s raining, deploy the electric umbrella!

    Today at CES Asia we found another way technology has gotten between the simple things in life. Using an ordinary umbrella is not a difficult task and requires us to push one button to deploy it. Packing is away usually involves us pulling the middle piece in and we’re done....
  • The Bulb with a Bug Zapper

    We’ve all been there, sleeping soundly and then a ringing noise enters the ear… bbzzzzzzzzzzzzz ahhh bzzzzzzzzzz. Sleep ruined, you’ve been bitten, you’ve bit hit with a mosquito bite and you’re stuck with it for a few days. The mosquito is so small you’ll struggle to find and kill...
  • Monitoring fever wirelessly

  • We listened to the Apple HomePod: It really does sound amazing

    The problem with the hype around a device like HomePod is that it’s going to get a lot of attention for a long period before it goes on sale, and we don’t even know how it will be priced in Australia.  But is the hype worth it? Yes. That’s...
