Epson's New Short Throw Laser Projector Includes a Special Screen to Bounce Away Overhead Lighting

Projectors can be a cheaper and far more convenient way to put a gigantic 100+ inch TV in your living room. But to get an image that rivals an LCD or OLED TV, you can’t just point them at a bare wall. So with its new LS500 short-throw 4K laser projector, Epson is including a perfectly-sized ambient light rejecting screen that promises deep blacks and vivid colors.

The Cheapest iPhone 11 Might Be Apple's Best Smartphone Deal

The Cheapest iPhone 11 Might Be Apple's Best Smartphone Deal

Given the fact that the cheaper iPhone XR was Apple’s best selling iPhone in 2018 and that it out-shipped every other smartphone in the first half of 2019, it comes as no surprise that Apple announced the affordable iPhone 11 today. It now includes the double camera setup of the iPhone XS and XS Max, but the real highlight is a price tag that might once again overshadow Apple’s more premium...

Japanese Clerk Allegedly Stole Over 1,300 Credit Cards By Instantly Memorizing All the Numbers

Japanese Clerk Allegedly Stole Over 1,300 Credit Cards By Instantly Memorizing All the Numbers

Instead of developing an intricate electronic card skimmer, or pulling off an elaborate online scam, a cashier in Japan used the most undetectable tool imaginable to steal the credit card info of over 1,300 customers: his immaculate and instant photographic memory.

Yusuke Taniguchi, a 34-year-old part-time cashier working at a mall in Koto City, Japan, was born with a memory that puts the rest...

Nintendo Just Revealed The Switch Lite’s Best Upgrade

Nintendo Just Revealed The Switch Lite’s Best Upgrade

It was supposed to be the ultimate handheld portable gaming console, but the Nintendo Switch didn’t quite fit the bill. The Switch Lite promises a better design for gaming on the go, but Nintendo has only just revealed what is possibly the best new feature for improved portability: a snap-on case with a flip cover for protecting the console’s screen and joysticks.

You Can Now Tell Siri to Tighten Your Nike Self-Lacing Sneakers

Nike’s self-lacing (self-tightening is probably a more apt description) FitAdapt technology is slowing making its way into more of the brand’s shoe lines, including the Adapt Huarache now. The sneaker’s design might date back to the early ‘90s, but it will actually be Nike’s first self-lacing shoe that can be remotely operated from the Apple Watch, or by simply telling Siri it’s time to lace...

I Miss Simple Video Games That Didn't Try Too Hard

I Miss Simple Video Games That Didn't Try Too Hard

As someone obsessed with handheld gaming consoles, Nintendo’s Switch should have been the ultimate portable system for me. Instead, it actually made me nostalgic for Tiger Electronics’ LCD handhelds; arguably some of the first true portable video game systems. They were cheap, durable, simple, and addictive, and 30 years later I find myself missing that experience.

LG Wants You to Replace Your $10 Ice Sphere Tray With a $4,400 Fridge

LG Wants You to Replace Your $10 Ice Sphere Tray With a $4,400 Fridge

A built-in ice maker is a great way to be woken up in the middle of the night by your fridge when a fresh batch of frozen cubes is loudly dumped into its dispenser. But if you turn your nose up at cubes—the beverage chiller of common folk—LG will now happily sell you a $4,400 fridge that churns out an endless supply of trendy ice spheres instead.

I'll Take This Custom Handheld Sega Dreamcast Over the Switch Lite Any Day

While everyone is oohing and aahing over the Nintendo Switch Lite today, I’d rather throw $200 at YouTube’s GmanModz to build me this fully functional Sega Dreamcast that’s been cut down and miniaturized to squeeze inside of a portable housing that’s about the size of the 2DS.

Adding Graphene to Fabrics Turns It Into a Perfect Force Field Against Mosquitoes

Saying goodbye to the warm summer months is a little easier when it also means the war against mosquito bites is coming to an end. They’re not just an itchy annoyance, however, mosquitoes can spread dangerous diseases and viruses, but researchers at Brown University might have come up with the perfect mosquito forcefield: garments lined with graphene.
