These fall-proof earbuds were designed after scanning thousands of ears

Housed in a rather unusually designed case that makes optimal use of space, the G1 earbuds designed by Designest for Havit are a treat for the eyes and the ears. The IPX5 waterproof earphones come in a compact case that splits into two to reveal both earbuds stored in separate halves, connected by a vibrantly colored silicon piece that also transfers power between halves. The earphones boast a supremely ergonomic fit that the company claims was arrived at after scanning and measuring thousands of ears. The G1’s design features a twice-molded TPU body, to ensure the earbuds are absolutely water/sweat-resistant, anti-fall, anti-fingerprint, and wear-resistant.

Havit’s G1 headphones come with a convenient 3.5 hours of battery, while the 720mAh case is capable of topping them off as much as six times. The case wirelessly charges too, for extra convenience, and a pretty nifty LED on the top glows to let you know your buds’ batteries are being replenished.

Of course the G1 earphones are smart too. Built with one-touch control and even the ability to trigger your phone’s voice AI, the G1 are as good as flagship earphones from the best companies. Armed with 6mm titanium diaphragm speakers, the G1’s audio is crisp, clear, and fine-tuned to deliver a sound that replicates each frequency with near accuracy. Plus the fact that they’re waterproof and ergonomic enough to stay in your ear through an intense workout makes them just the perfect candidates!

Toyota Shows off Basketball-shooting Robot

Sorry NBA players. You are on the way out. Once they perfect basketball robots that is. This guy is the first step. Check out some videos below of the Toyota Engineering Society’s CUE 3 humanoid robot, a robot designed to shoot baskets with “nearly 100 percent accuracy.” CUE 3 is a fine name, but I think they should have named it Charles Sparkly or Lebron Mames.

How does it do what it does so well? This robot computes where the basket is as a three-dimensional image, using sensors on its torso. Then it adjusts motors in its arm and knees to give the shot the right angle and propulsion.

I’m not sure why they had to use two other robots to hand the CUE3 the basketball though. I ain’t got time for that. Regardless, Stanford University Professor Oussama Khatib says, “What Toyota is doing here is really bringing the top capabilities in perception with the top capabilities in control to have robots perform something that is really challenging,” Khatib said.

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the RoboNBA. The inevitable is coming, folks, but will humans be in the stands or more robots? Will robots be watching at home?

This Rocket Powered Golf Club Swings at 150 MPH

How fast can you swing a golf club? I have no idea what the record for a human might be, but I know that pros can swing at about 110 MPH. The rest of us, not very fast. If you want to swing a golf club really fast, you have to enlist some help from a former NASA engineer like Mark Rober who teamed up with Smarter Every Day’s Destin Sandlin to add some rocket power to the situation.

The built a swinging rig, then added two F size model rocket engines to a driver so that it swings at 150 MPH. You can check out the video right here. The first successful run begins at the 10:08 mark, but most of the failures are equally entertaining to watch. After they use the club to hit a few golf balls, they naturally move on to the important stuff like a watermelon. I’m not sure how far they managed to hit those golf balls, but I can tell you that the watermelon didn’t go far, because there wasn’t enough of it left to travel through the air as the thing exploded.

This is just proof that everything is better when it’s rocket-powered. Now we just need to get those snooty PGA golf pros to start using these clubs. It might make the sport more watchable.

If you dare want to try to build a rocket-powered golf club for yourself, you can check out the build docs over on Mark Rober’s instructional website.
