Keeping your screws, nails, bolts, nuts, and other small pieces of hardware close and within easy access is a dream of many handymen and DIYers. Instead of putting all of these metallic objects inside your pocket or even your toolbox, you might want to stick them onto your wrist instead. With the RAK Magnetic Wristband, this is now more than possible. The RAK comes embedded with 10 super-strong magnets that are guaranteed to attract any metallic object placed on its wristband. This simply means you have access to all the drill bits, screws, and nails right in your hands.
Sometimes wonder where your tax dollars go? The accompanying image shows off some of the handicraft of the CIA’s Office of Advanced Technologies and Programs – in this case an “Unmanned Underwater Vehicle” fish to study aquatic robot technology. Why they would want to do that is anybody’s guess, but the CIA did come up with a nifty implementation of different technologies – including a communications system in the body and a propulsion system in the fish’s tail. (An operator on land controlled it by a wireless line-of-sight radio handset.)
Controlling state of mind is the hardest thing for any of us to do. A particularly bad day at the office can make it impossible for you to relax when you get home. A night out with friends the previous evening can sap you of energy when you go in for your workout on…
Breathalyzers are fine, but the Skyn band tracks your blood-alcohol content in real time and proves to you that you’re a lightweight. I’m not sure you could read that screen after a few too many, though.
When you think of a lighter, usually products from Zippo and Bic brands flash in your mind. Of course, those all use a liquid fuel that either needs to be replenished, or you just have to buy a new lighter. It would be nice if we could just plug our lighter in instead of using butane, but if there’s not enough reason for us to do so, we’ll likely stay with the same ole ball and chain since we’re used to it.
All of the upsides of a high-end gaming rig without the cost or technical requirements of actually owning one. That’s the promise of the Blade Shadow — a high-end Windows PC remotely accessible from any computer, phone or tablet for about $35 per month (about £25 or AU$45).
The Budget: Of course, not everyone is ready to drop more than $500 on a smartphone or pay the ridiculous monthly fees. You also don’t have to. For a fraction of the price you can get a phone with a comparable battery life, a solid processor, and a 5 megapixel camera. And that’s not half bad.
The Lenovo Smart Display comes in 8-inch and 10-inch versions, each with a touchscreen and a speaker along the side. The JBL Link View is vaguely blimp-shaped and includes speakers on both sides of its 8-inch screen. Both of them do pretty much what you’d expect a device like this. You can watch YouTube videos, display weather information, and get visual results when you ask Google Assistant questions.
The Incognito: One of the problems with the Apple watch is that it looks like an Apple watch. Samsung’s, on the other hand, offers much of the same kind of functionality – the ability to make calls or send texts, fitness tracking, app compatibility – but looks like a classic watch. And that, for us, bodes much better as an everyday accessory.
Boasting a soft silicone exterior and booming audio – courtesy of one of the all-time industry leaders – this wireless speaker offers a good deal more than it looks like it should. With 8 hours of battery life, digital assistant compatibility, and water resistance, there’s little out there that can compete.
There are two different Keys available: one for iOS and another for Android. The gadget is both portable and durable thanks to its miniature rubber design. Overall, this is a practical product sold at an affordable price.

It even comes with its own unique voltage regulator system to help improve its overall safety.
Every CES there’s a competition over who has the skinniest device. This year, thinnest laptop award goes to the Acer Swift 7 — at 8.98mm thick, a credible contender for thinnest laptop in the world.
Laptops are very convenient powerhouses that allow us to perform many tasks wherever we may be. Unfortunately, propping our laptops on our laps can be quite uncomfortable especially when it starts heating up. The solution? Use the Executive Office Solutions Portable Adjustable Aluminum Laptop Stand that already comes with 2 vented CPU cooling fans. The EOS laptop stand comes with fully adjustable legs, allowing you to reposition them at various angles to give you ease of use of your laptop. The legs can be locked into place for added security. Of course, the stand can be used for other purposes.
The Mac: Refusing to take a back seat, Apple also offers a formidable streaming device in their Apple TV. With your choice of 32 or 64 gigs of onboard storage; access to everything from Netflix, to ESPN, to HBO; and the brand’s legendary product support, it’s hard to make an argument against this one.
An improvement on the already very strong PS4, the PS4 Pro supports 4K and HDR technologies; plus with advances in frame due to beefed-up processing speeds, gaming will look cleaner, crisper and smoother.

Cleaning the grill is a crappy job. But, for those of us who like to host a barbeque, cleaning the grill is a familiar ritual that follows many a dinner party. It’s a task that takes a lot of elbow grease and, after a few pints, doesn’t get done very thoroughly.
That’s not the only subscription service for gamers, though. Nvidia had its GeForce now service on show, which, similar to the Blade Shadow service, lets you play demanding games on any hardware, all thanks to the magic of the internet.
The Chipolo Card is an incredibly thin, credit-card sized device which can either be slotted into a purse or connected to a device and through an accompanying app, will set off an alarm if the user is looking for their missing gear.
Some car designer realized that they’d been woefully underutilizing spline surfaces in their CAD software and decided to use a year’s supply in one shot for this AI-powered car. Which, by the way, answers to “Yui” and knows what you want and what mood you’re in, and then reacts appropriately.
If you love nature but aren’t exactly the “roughing it” type, or are intrigued by culture and history but not at the expense of modern amenities and comforts, then the Mirror Houses might be just the place for your next adventure. Designed by Italian architect Peter…
The Pocket-sized: While this offering from Anker will only give you about one full phone charge worth (3,350 mAh), the fact that it’s only a little bigger than a tube of chapstick more than makes up the difference. It can also auto-detect your device to offer the fastest charge speed possible up to 1 amp.
As a last resort, you can ‘refresh’ your Windows 10 installation, which is much the same as reinstalling the operating system. Your documents won’t be affected, but you’ll need to reinstall any applications that aren’t part of Windows.

The coffee press is straightforward to set up and brew, which is something your pre-caffeinated morning brain will be thankful for. It’ll make enough coffee to fill four mugs and is dishwasher friendly if you don’t feel like washing up.
