Although this product is still in early stages, the Guardbot Surveillance Robot gives users a glimpse at what the future world of mobile surveillance might look like. This robot is capable of traversing any terrain, whether its the rugged mountains, water, the countryside, or any urban or city environment. Sizes range from 5 inches to 7 feet in diameter and a motorized pendulum can move the unit forward and back all while allowing a full 360 degree turning radius. The Guardbot is controlled via either satellites or remote control and packs a whopping 25 hour run capacity per charge. Two cameras, microphones and a GPS make this a major step for remote surveillance. We expect to see this robot popping up in military testing videos and news stories in the near future.
Bose Noise-Masking Sleepbuds
Although they are best known for their line of incredible noise-cancelling headphones, audio mega brand Bose has just released a pair buds designed to help you sleep more soundly and feel more rested upon waking. Dubbed the Sleepbuds, these small noise-masking ear plugs can drown out city and suburb noises including honking cars, loud music, or a snoring partner next to you. Rather than play music, the Sleepbuds will play any one of many nature and ambient sounds such as a running stream, ocean waves or brown noises designed to mask normal sound disturbances. Equipped with a 16 hour battery life and designed to fit securely in your ear throughout the whole night, these are perfect for light sleepers looking for a novel way of reducing mid sleep disturbances. Available now from Bose.
