Yes, your smartwatch can read your heart rate, but does it know your stress levels? Does it know how your lungs are performing? Or whether your liver is okay? Or how about your pancreas, bladder, or even stomach. Designed to help you get a more holistic view on your body, vitals, and internal organs, RaDoTech is a simple hand-held device that can, in a span of 5 minutes, help you perform a full body scan to see how healthy you are on the inside. Bring it in contact with certain acupressure points on your body, and the RaDoTech reads electrical currents to judge the health of your internal organs. The clinically tested results are sent to your phone, allowing you to see how each individual organ is performing, giving you an accurate health reading, along with personal, actionable insights to help you live better.
The RaDoTech could be labelled as a consumer tool that’s great for everyone’s health, but it’s best suited for people who want to keep better track of their internals. They could be medical patients, fitness freaks, or just people who want to take better care of their loved ones and themselves. Designed to work by simple touch, the RaDoTech helps you examine your body right down to the organ level to make sure you’re living your best life possible.
Place the Cubessence bottles on top of each other and they stack almost seamlessly. The trick is in the design of the bottle, that comes with an angular base, but a regular skirt around it. The bottle’s bases are placed at an angle to avoid the neck of the bottle below, but that doesn’t mean they sit at an angle when you place them on their own, because the side walls still extend downwards in a regular fashion. This allows each bottle to individually look slightly unique, but look beautiful together, as they vertically align, forming a totem-pole of sorts. This makes the Cubessence bottles both efficient to pack, as well as interesting to look at! A third benefit lies within this design too. The angled base reduces wastage. By making sure that one corner of the base is lower than the others, Cubessence makes sure the pipe within the bottle sits at this lowest corner, pumping out every ounce of the liquid to make sure the bottle is completely empty before you decide to dispose of it!
Remember when you wanted to blast music on your speaker at home but your dad kept yelling at you to keep it down? How about if I told you there were speakers that could channel their sound in a tight beam, so you can only hear the music if the speaker is pointed at you. If you move out of the speaker’s audio beam, you hear nothing. Sounds pretty neat, doesn’t it?
The SRAY speakers are the equivalent of headphones but they don’t sit in your ears. They throw audio in a beam, like a flashlight focuses light in a beam, illuminating only what you point it at. The SRAY work similarly with sound. Using ultrasonic propagation, these small speakers can bind audio in a unidirectional channel. Point the speakers at yourself and you hear the music. Point them even slightly away and its complete silence.
Audio spotlights, as the technology is often labelled, have been in development for a few years now. I remember seeing a video where someone used these unidirectional speakers to listen to music in a library. You could practically focus the audio towards a single line of people in a crowd, making the technology useful in places like roads and railways, where only people near the train tracks hear the train’s siren, or only the cars in front of you hear you horning, but not the cars beside or behind you.
While this technology is still pretty nascent, the guys at CatchFlow figured out how to shrink it down to a handy size, and democratize it so anyone can access the technology. You can use the SRAY speakers to listen to podcasts, music, driving instructions, or practically any audio without disturbing the person right beside you.
The SRAY is the world’s smallest commercially available ‘audio spotlight’ speaker. It’s practically small enough to fit in your palm, which says a lot for a technology that’s relatively new, and challenging to shrink. The SRAY is capable of providing a uniquely private listening experience by focusing the audio in a thin beam using ultrasonic vibrations.
This allows only the people in the path of the audio beam to listen to the audio, making it great for public services, museums, libraries, transportation, or even at home when you’re around other people who don’t necessarily want to listen to the football game. The SRAY comes with its own stand, allowing you to easily position it in the direction you want, and uses low power too, allowing you to hook it to a power bank for endless hours of use.
That doesn’t stop the SRAY from being a regular speaker. A simple switch allows you to turn the unidirectional speaker into an omnidirectional one. A second audio driver within the SRAY lets it work like a regular speaker, throwing sound in all directions and allowing everyone to hear what’s playing on your phone, the radio, or any device connected to it.
This ability is truly what makes the SRAY such a remarkable speaker. Its unique technology allows it to give you the oomph of a Bluetooth speaker, but also the privacy of a pair of headphones without damaging your ears… And with the ability to seriously impress and shock the people who experience its magic!
A headphone-replacing speaker, that generates sounds only you can hear. It is the smallest directional speaker that creates fields of sound which spread less than most traditional speakers by ultrasonic waves.
SRAY generates ultrasonic waves modulated with audio signal and as they pass through the air they modulated and sound can be.
How SRAY Works
SRAY produces a directional beam of sound, sort of like a spot light for sound. This means if you are standing in front of SRAY when it’s on, you will hear the sound it produces. If you step to the side, you won’t hear anything produced by SRAY. In comparison, the speakers we are used to tend to emit sound radially, filling an entire space around it with sound.
All of The Sound, None of The Noise
Earbuds Raise Your Risk of Hearing Loss
Earbuds or headphones enable you to listen with disturbing nobody. However, headphones and earbuds cause damage to your ears the same way other loud noises too, resulting in what audiologists call ‘noise-induced hearing loss (A.K.A NHL)’. Over time the sounds from your headphones cause the hair cells in the cochlea to bend down too much or too severely. If they don’t get time to recover, the damage can be permanent.
So here is the solution, SRAY, headphone-replacing sound generator.
Features of SRAY
Private Area – SRAY brings focused audio to target audiences without disturbing anyone. By user experience, the existence of different sounds can be possible.
Miniaturization – Up to now (present), the directional speakers on the market, cannot be user-friendly due to the size and weight matters. Currently SRAY is the smallest directional speaker in the world and super light. Via SRAY, directional sound is now for everyone.
Dual Mode [Parametric/Hybrid/Normal] – Do you want to share what you hear with people around you? SRAY can assure you. Convertible modes are available depending on the situations or environments.
Low Power – SRAY fits in everywhere due to low energy consumption. Indoor, outdoor, even in the car.
Sleek Design – Modern and simple design are suitable for anywhere displayed.
The AW3 from elago pays tribute to Apple’s original hero product from its heyday. The 1984 Macintosh-inspired silicone sleeve for the Airpods case really gives it less of a dental-floss vibe and more of a cute relic appeal. The white silicone sleeve guards your Airpods case, cushioning it from accidental bumps and scratches, while an outlet at its base allows you to charge it too. In fact, the entire sleeve is compatible with wireless chargers too, letting you use even the new generation Airpods 2 with it.
AW3’s design comes with the iconic Hello engraved into its form, which also lets you see the green charging light when the case is plugged in. The case opens traditionally, to reveal the Airpods inside, but when shut, really makes for an interesting old-vs-new comparison, reminding you of how far we’ve come from archaic clunky desktop computers to computers so small they fit in the concavity of our external ear!
According to Daniel Martini and the guys at Changan, we’re going to see a pretty solid shift in the automobile world, where a better consumer car isn’t better because it has a better engine, but because it’s a better cabin on wheels. Meet Individual Autonomy by Changan, a private self-driving automobile that explores how people occupy themselves while driven by an autonomous car, as well as the relationship between user and private vehicle.
Individual Autonomy is literally a self-transporting bubble on wheels. With an organic blinds-system that allows you to turn the glass cabin into a transparent bubble when you want, and an enclosed space from the sides when you need, Individual Autonomy focuses on how you interact with the car, now that there is no steering wheel to control it. The interiors transform into a beautiful lounge that you can relax or work in while the car travels around completely on its own. Blinds on the side allow you to shut out the sides of the car when you’re trying to concentrate, but I’d much rather prefer they were open, because then you’re treated to a stunning panoramic view of the road you’re driving through. Now that would be something I’d enjoy!
It looks like a Game Boy. It plays Game Boy titles, along with Game Boy Color, GBA, Sega’s Game Gear, SNK’s Neo Geo Pocket Color, and Atari’s Lynx, giving you an absolute buffet of nostalgia. It also has its own DAW or Digital Audio Workstation called Nanoloop that lets you create your own electro 8-bit soundtracks. It’s called the Analogue Pocket and it is everything a retro gamer dreams about.
With a shape, size, and form that gamers have fallen love with for decades, the Analogue Pocket could be called a Game Boy clone, but that would take away from exactly how much better the Pocket is. Built on Analogue’s FPGA hardware, the Pocket can run practically every 90’s handheld console game on its own, without an emulator. When you’re tired of playing the thousands of games you previously owned (but couldn’t play because of obsolete hardware), Pocket has a digital audio workstation built in called Nanoloop. It’s a synthesizer and a sequencer that’s designed for music creation and live performance, letting you create those wonderfully glitchy 8-bit electronic tracks to take you back to the old days. It also has a 3.5″ LCD screen with a resolution of 1600×1440, mappable buttons, a MicroSD card slot, USB-C charging, an HDMI output, 2 USB inputs for wired controllers, Bluetooth for wireless controllers, and the best feature yet… the ability to save progress in your games. Hallelujah, it’s the glorious 1990s again, but slightly better! The Analogue Pocket will launch in 2020.
It’s entirely possible that this $119 device could offset the need for a $1299 laptop. Meet the DoBox Pro, a docking station that gives your iPad Pro the things it critically needs to be as useful as your MacBook Pro. A keyboard, a touchpad, a staggering 16,000 mAh battery pack, expandable storage, and ports… LOADS of them! The DoBox Pro makes a solemn promise to make sure you’ll never need a laptop ever again because not only will it turn your iPad Pro into one, it’ll make it better than one too.
Clad in a beautiful micro-textured anodized metal body, the DoBox Pro bestows powers upon your tablet that gives it the best of both worlds. The iPad still runs its iPad OS, and is fully compatible with the Apple Pencil, and the wide variety of apps, but stack it onto the DoBox Pro and you’ve got a powerful laptop at your beck and call. The full-scale keyboard and trackpad allow you to use your iPad in completely new, yet familiar ways. The absolute surplus of ports return the power back to the user, allowing you to once again plug LAN and HDMI cables, as well as headphone jacks and SD cards into your devices.
The slick, metal device comes with an indentation that docks both the iPad Pro 11″ and the 12.5″. A Type-C cable, plugs the DoBox Pro into the tablet, completing the transformation. DoBox Pro’s backlit keyboard and trackpad work seamlessly with iOS 13, while its wide variety of ports let you use the tablet the way you’d use a laptop, plugging Ethernet or HDMI cables in, or even USB drives. The thin accessory even comes with a massive 16,000 mAh battery that should practically give your iPad hours upon hours of usage-time, and even a slot to plug in an M.2 SATA drive, expanding your tablet’s storage by up to 2 terabytes!
Designed to be the same size as the larger iPad, the DoBox Pro fits right into your bags, measuring just marginally thicker than the tablet, but providing a world of functionality and opportunity to the people who’d like to carry their tablet around to work and not buy/own/travel with a separate laptop that could set them back by over $1299.

You know one of those ‘kick myself for not having thought of it first’ ideas? This is a prime example. The function of the Harbour fishbowl is explained in one simple image above. The fishbowl comes with a smaller volume attached to its side. When you want to change the water, tip the bowl over so that the water gently spills out. The water level should gradually recede and the fish should find itself inside the smaller volume in the fishbowl. Now simply pour fresh water in and you’re done. That’s it! The fish doesn’t need to be trapped, baited, and pulled out of its bowl and put into a glass or plastic bag while you change the water in its fishbowl. It simply has its own safe space to reside in while you change the water in the bowl every week or so. So simple, so sensible.
I was in the Scottish Highlands a week ago, on a road trip with the family, with absolutely no network on my Pixel 2 phone. In essence, I was cut off from the rest of the world. No internet, no messages, no calls. All I had was the car’s radio, which happened to be catching some music on a DAB station. I looked at my Pixel 2’s screen, completely stunned to see that without any network or internet, my Google Pixel 2 had identified what song was playing. Right underneath the notification bar, it said “Come Together – The Beatles” (the radio channel was celebrating Lennon’s birthday on the 9th of October). My phone had essentially identified a (pretty popular but) completely random track on the radio… completely on its own. I was partly terrified but mostly impressed. Fast forward to today, a full week later.
I’m sitting in front of my TV, watching the Google Keynote live. I’m feeling a similar feeling of euphoria and mild terror at how incredibly advanced Google’s new devices are getting. The Google Assistant has the ability to work incredibly well WITHOUT being connected to the internet. Everything sits in Google’s small machine-learning chip, allowing your phone to be smart on its own. That’s incredible and terrifying, depending on how you look at it. Google’s devices, its smartphone in particular, are growing increasingly powerful in order to achieve what Google calls ‘ambient helpful computing’.
Google’s keynote, just nearly over a month after Apple’s keynote, feels quite different. In fact, I’d say the roles have reversed. Apple was once a bastion of serious innovation, and Google, a fun-loving company that made delightful hardware to complement its software. Now the tables are turned, as Apple takes on a more informal route, with its partnerships with Oprah and Jason Momoa, and its foray into Arcade and Apple TV Plus, while Google has assumed the mantle of power, having just built the most powerful Quantum Computer among other achievements. The once fun-loving company is all about showing how they can ‘help’ change the world, one product at a time. I mean, they even had an on-stage interview with Annie Leibovitz, to talk about how a professional would use Google’s Pixel camera.
The Pixel 4 is built around Google’s motto for being an incredibly advanced piece of tech envisioned to help you. Its incredible advancement comes from the fact that it’s now the first and only phone to use radar as an input, allowing you to wave your hands in the air to swipe through your music playlist, mute your alarm by showing your phone your palm, and much more. The Soli radar chip, developed in 2015, went from 4 square-feet in size, to a mere 4 square-millimeters, sitting in the Pixel 4’s upper bezel. The Soli is so powerful, it knows what to do before you even tell it to. When your hands approach your phone, Soli activates the facial recognition camera on your phone, so you just need to look at it to wake it up… no pressing buttons or anything. It even reduces the volume of your alarm when it senses your hand approaching the phone. It can detect and differentiate between you waving to a friend versus trying to swipe in the air to change tracks on your phone, making it both ground-breaking and incredibly intelligent for something so new. Google’s assistant grew a tad bit smarter too, being able to work across apps, completely offline, and being able to recognize complex commands without even needing the phrase “Hey Google”. If that wasn’t enough, the Pixel 4 will be the first smartphone to be Google Stadia compatible, come 19th November when Stadia finally launches.
As for the camera, Google’s found new ways to excel in that department. There was a good 15 minute segment just on how Google practically built and perfected computational photography. The camera can now click infinitely better HDR images with HDR+, better Portrait photos with its two lenses, even completing it with realistic bokeh, and absolutely stunning low-light pictures that puts the Pixel 4 in the category of SLR cameras. You’re literally looking at a powerful professional camera touted by Annie Leibovitz herself, that fits right in your pocket.
The Pixel 4 comes in three colors, with no fingerprint sensor and a massive square camera bump that easily overtakes the iPhone 11 Pro in its photography capabilities (although there’s a high chance the 11 Pro still dominates in the video department). Google’s very cleverly moved on from showcasing trivial details like wireless chargers and fabric cases (or even the Pixel 4’s battery life) to focusing on the larger picture, like how the Pixel 4 is an incredibly powerful digital assistant in your pocket. From being able to anticipate and understand your needs much in advance and being able to read your gestures in mid-air, to being able to allow you to talk to its assistant in a natural seamless manner (so the technology recedes into the background), the Pixel 4 is a great phone for users, while being a complete magnum opus for Google, showcasing its absolute potential as a dominating force in practically every department, from Voice AI to the state-of-the-art computational photography. That feeling of delight (with the zest of terror) is a pretty interesting one. It shows that there’s still a lot left in the smartphone innovation department, that Google is capable of still blowing our socks off, and there’s no stopping them.
The Cambox V4 Pro literally sits where your metaphorical third eye would be, capturing your world through your unique point of view. Its ergonomic and lightweight design, crafted specially for PoV action filming, puts it on a pedestal above most cameras because the Cambox V4 Pro fits right around your forehead, underneath your visor. The Cambox V4 Pro is compatible with all helmets and peaks, and films from a perspective that is much closer to your eye level, allowing you to capture your bike drives, skateboard tricks, or ski-jumps from a perspective that is nearest to your own. Unlike other action cameras that need their own separate clunky mounts that sit a foot above your eye level, Cambox V4 Pro captures footage that’s the nearest to what YOU see… which is what the entire point of a PoV Action Camera is, right?
The action camera’s unique design probably best describes its purpose. With a camera element in the center, and two winged elements that wrap around your forehead, the Cambox V4 sits above your eyes, under your helmet. The V4 Pro doesn’t need a separate mount, or a permanent adhesive attachment. It works pretty much with any protective headgear, be it a ski mask, a helmet with a visor, a laser tag helmet, or even a construction hard hat. In fact, the V4 is even compatible with headgear for the armed forces and policemen. The winged design comes with a stereo mic on either side, and with the Cambox V4 Pro’s crown jewel in the center. Its UltraHD 4K camera, complete with a Sony sensor. The camera outshines most, with its wide 150° viewing angle, and an adjustable mount that lets you point the lens anywhere you want. The V4 Pro captures 4K at 60fps, but its frame rate can be bumped up to an impressive 240fps if you pull the quality down a few notches. Not too bad, if you ask me. Plus, all your footage gets stabilized within the V4 Pro, courtesy an on-board gyro and accelerometer chipset.
Footage recorded on the Cambox V4 Pro gets stored right in the MicroSD card slot of the camera. An in-built WiFi and Bluetooth service even lets you live-stream videos to your smartphone, toggling the start and stop feature. If you’re the kind to keep your eyes on the road (and I genuinely hope you are), the V4 Pro sports a volcano-shaped on/off button that’s easy to use with or without gloves. The V4 comes with a cool 1100 mAh battery that should last hours, and a USB-C port to charge it up before you embark on your adventure!

Ergonomic Design for Safety
Traditional cameras are mounted directly outside of the helmet on its shell using plates that are glued and a screw immobilizes the viewing angle. With a Cambox, there is no bolt, no screw or drill on the helmet shell, thus this allows to respect the protective role of the helmet. It fits perfectly the helmet shape, it does not extend out of the helmet, avoiding all risks of snagging or of shocks with external elements.
Cambox V4 Pro is fitted with a new angled LED indicator system, that provides perfect 90 ° visibility for easy viewing of your camera’s operating status. It is the only helmet camera that offers an adjustable viewing angle. It has a tilting central lens system allowing you to adjust the lens from -5° to 15°.
