All that & it still actually looks (and reportedly drives) like a Porsche.
In the 1950s, the CIA had its own semi-submersible. It couldn’t travel very far and needed to be hauled around by a larger mother vessel, but its relatively small size allowed the spy sub to operate undetected in areas that would have proved impossible for larger ships.

This machine makes you an accomplished barista, no matter your skill. Just swipe and select the coffee you’re after and… Oh, that’s it!

If you have a smartphone with Qi capabilities, you’ll need a qi charger for your car, too. The best that we’ve come across is the Montar Air Qi Wireless Charging Car Mount. It’s incredibly easy to setup, and it’s easily mounted. It has a holder that rotates a full 360 degrees, so you can set your phone up however you prefer and then keep it how you like it, thanks to a tightening mechanism on the back. And unlike some of the other qi chargers I’ve tested, the Montar Air Qi just simply works. Put your phone on the base, and it begins charging; no fuss, no tinkering, or none of the “is it charging now…how about now?” And now that it’s roughly half of the price it was at launch (now it’s $59.99), it’s well worth the pick-up.
What makes this monitor great – and why it is one that is very sought-after by gamers everywhere – is the fact that it features a slight curve along its screen. This offers a field of view for shooting and military games, provides a better overlay and better vision for strategy games, and gives a much more immersive experience for RPG and MMORPG games. Where a flat monitor is merely a small window into the world of gaming, curved ones are a step inside it. This is why this 27-inch curved monitor is currently one of the more popular choices for gamers everywhere, regardless of what genre, what experience level, and what dedication they might have.
