How many times have your usb cables tangled, frayed, and been rendered useless? Probably too many to count. It seems like I should have plenty of cables by now -- they give you one with every device, not to mention the ones I’ve bought on my own, or the ones that come with accessories, etc. So why am I always struggling to find one, let alone one that works reliably? It’s because in the past these cables have been an afterthought, a cheap way to get power from your outlet to the real show stopper, your phone. There have been other good cables in the past where people specifically set out to create a quality cable, but they all suffered from their own issues. If the cables were too rigid they had to sacrifice comfort and useability and could be susceptible to breaking. Too much give and they would be susceptible to that all familiar tearing. The USB93 uses what’s actually a very simple solution to utilize the benefits of both cables without any of the downsides. The braided nylon cable is tough and tangle free, and the adjustable socket joint means that you can orient your cable any way that you need without risking the wear and tear associated with that on regular cables. The Indie Go Go is already well past being funded, but it’s not too late to jump in and get in on the action.
USB93 - Unbreakable Cable
Sony Aibo Robot Dog
Sony released a first version of this robot dog several years ago, but due to the limitations in robotics at the time it was pretty basic by today's standards. This latest iteration of the Sony Aibo features dozens of modern advancements that include artificial intelligence in addition to robotics. The look and feel of the robot is much more friendly and welcoming and actually resembles a real dog as opposed to the clunky sci-fi pet look of its predecessor. The movements are fluid and natural thanks to the ultracompact 1 and 2 axis actuators. The internal software is what makes the major difference with the Aibo, allowing it to learn and understand your preferences as well as your home and other environments that it will be spending time with. If you're not ready for the commitment of a real pet that you requires actual food and exercise, then this little guy might be just what you're looking for.
Titan Underwater Diving Drone
Drones are all the rage these days and finally were starting to see some that can navigate the waters like their aerial counterparts. Able to dive down to depths of 500 feet, the Titan is a perfect tool for the photographer that lives to capture underwater treasures. Six thrusters propel the drone and proprietary software allows you to get steady and smooth footage and sharp imaging even with unpredictable ocean conditions. There is a 4k sensor and a 160 degree wide angle lens that capture 8-megapixel stills and 1080p live streamed footage. You control the drone as you would a typical video game controller and the 3000-lumen LED lights allow you light up darker environments. Also includes a hardshell carrying case and a battery with up to four hours of run time. This Kickstarter is fully funded so you can preorder now.
