I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on my next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I was so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550

Great car features start out as quirky ideas, ones you might easily dismiss before you realize their genius. Here’s a rundown of vehicle tech from startups and suppliers that caught our attention — and our best guess on whether the products will make it into cars.
The 6DoF Blaster is an AR-ready laser tag gun. Merge has given it six-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) tracking, which phone-connected rival headsets have a hard time with. You can walk around with it, duck and aim quickly. Fun, and surely a sign that there are more AR toys to come.
In February, the international jury of independent design experts will evaluate every product – without online pre-judging.

The iPhone X price in India is on top of every fan’s mind in the country as it will become the first mainstream to breach the Rs. 1-lakh barrier when it launches. Priced in India at Rs. 1,02,000 for iPhone X 256GB variant, this price beats even the iPhone 7 Plus’ Rs. 92,000 launch price tag announced last year. Of course, for this price, Apple is giving fans several new features never seen before on iPhones, such as the bezel-less display, OLED panel, Face ID facial recognition system, and wireless charging, among others. Even the 64GB variant of the iPhone X – which is the new Apple flagship, positioned above the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus – will cost a hefty Rs. 89,000, though it does not come close to the Rs. 1 lakh mark.
In 2017, the cinema camera making company RED announced it was working a smartphone with a holographic screen. Consumers were unsure what this meant until September 2017. Essentially, the phone would provide a 3D viewing experience on screen, projecting things like buildings and landscapes in an interactive map. A user could essentially take a virtual tour via the phone screen, looking around, above, behind, or in-between various objects.

Smart glasses are far from a new invention. The glasses, which project information onto your retina as you go about your day, once came with clunky equipment attached. Cameras, extra appendages, and microphones made the glasses a bit of an eyesore that easily led to unwanted attention directed at their wearers. Intel’s new Vaunt glasses, however, offer a streamline design that’s vastly more user friendly. The glasses look exactly like regular eyeglasses and are available in various prescription lenses. This means users can enjoy the benefits of the glasses throughout the day without attracting unwanted stares or having to deal with uncomfortable equipment.

Once upon a time we dreamed of eating meal-replacement pills while flying our cars to see a holographic movie. While so much of the future’s useful technology has failed to materialise, there’s one field that has come on in leaps and bounds like an untethered spacewalker, and that’s handwriting-to-typing. Finally you can grab hold of what looks like a normal pen, write as usual, then download everything on to a computer as images and text. If it wasn’t so ruddy simple, you’d think it was witchcraft.

Sling’s parent company Dish just birthed it a sibling for cord cutters and cord nevers who miss local broadcasts that you can only get via a cable or satellite subscription or antenna. AirTV looks like Roku mated with Fisher Price, but you’ll never lose that remote in the couch.
You love your iPhone, but as powerful as it is, there are some things it just cannot do alone. It cannot, for example, stream music for an entire room full of people. It cannot reliably power itself on a single charge for three or four days. It cannot take close-up photos of insects. And it cannot strap onto your arm as-is for those long runs. For all these purposes, you’ll need some accessories. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best iPhone accessories.

No two people are the exact same. Even identical twins don’t have every hair follicle in the exact same spot. That being said, if you are born without much in the way of ability to move your fingers, working on a computer would not be the easiest of tasks. Instead of signing off on it completely, you can learn to modify your interactions through a different way of inputting information.
We love our gadgets and gizmos, but we can’t use them without charging up the battery every now and again. Since a full charge only lasts for a few hours, we’re normally stuck carrying a bunch of cables around. This on its own is no issue, but when they unravel and have a party in your bag, it’s hard to get what you need when you actually need it.
