Tweeting Shoes

Even if these shoes didn’t tweet, they’d be awesome just for the fact that they brand the image of the Twitter bird. I love that little guy. But factor in that these Rambler shoes actually send a wireless signal via Bluetooth, listing data about your walking speed and pressure, through your mobile phone and straight to your Twitter feed, and ...

Hand-Shaped Dog Leash: Walk Hand in Hand with Your Pup

While your puppy might not have actual opposable thumbs fit for walking hand in hand, who’s to say that the canine doesn’t wish they could have contact when they sniff around for their preferred spot to shit.

Fitbit: Pedometer 2.0

A cheap, barely-functional pedometer isn’t going to do you a lot of good. Shit, McDonalds was handing them out a few years ago with some bullshit “fit meal” marketing gimmick, essentially killing all hope that pedometer can really help you lose weight.

Honda Takes “Doing the Robot” One “Step” Too Far

In recent years, Honda’s robotics division has really taken off. After seeing ASIMO fall down a flight of stairs during CES one year, I pretty much lost all confidence in the company.
