New Product Yesterday

You may have heard of BearTek before. It launched its first-generation Smart Gloves a while back as a way to control your smartphone with built-in sensors. Last Friday night, the guys behind BearTek made an appearance on Shark Tank and launched version 2.0 on Indiegogo. We won’t spoil the episode for you, but we’ll just say Mr. Wonderful had his doubts.

So what does the second generation add? In addition to the original model’s support for iPhone/Android, BearTek has introduced compatibility with GoPro plus “user-defined touchpoints” and a new developer kit. Full details below.

It’s pretty hard these days to come up with an original idea. The internet is flooded with real, conceptual and on-the-way products that fill nearly every void in our lives. Evidently, for a guy named Max Braun, he found a need that couldn’t be met. After setting out to find a better bathroom mirror, he came to the conclusion that this product category has largely been untouched by the Internet of Things.

So what did he do? He built a pretty sweet two-way mirror with a built-in display that shows the latest info from Google Now. With a mixture of Android and assorted APIs, he found his way to a surprisingly polished product. More details and a gallery below.

It seems like we’ve been inundated with Bluetooth speaker offerings over the last year. Even worse, each new release seems to be a redesign of another model already on the market. Finding a way to standout from the crowd is becoming increasingly difficult as established brands are seeing hundreds of new names enter the space.

Fluance, an audio company up in Ontario, has released a new addition to its line-up of hi-fi equipment called the Fi70 High Fidelity Music System. Instead of going the route of traditional portable speakers, it has opted for an all-in-one system that mixes mid-century looks with modern technology. You’re either going to love or hate the design…

Remember Aereo? That clever online service that allowed users anywhere to enjoy live and time-shifted streams of over-the-air television stations from nearly any internet-connected device? The one that was shut-down by the Supreme Court over copyright rules that were made long before the internet was a thing? Yeah, those guys are back with a new service that is threatening to shake up big names like Comcast and Time Warner.

Starry is an intriguing new take on Internet services. By using a sophisticated “millimeter waves and proprietary technology” that in theory could open up broadband to previously un-reachable locales. Chet Kanojia, the founder of Aereo and Starry, aims to unleash this service across the United States with an eye on giving consumers more choices. Full details below.

We’ve seen our fair share of intriguing e-Bike designs over the last year as this product category has expanded. Some have been more robust, while others have had a more industrial feel. Today, we’ve noticed a new e-Bike out of Germany that blends this emerging technology with a classic design.

The Freygeist e-Bike could easily be confused with a traditional bicycle on the road. Personally, that’s what I like so much about it. The bigger question is, does it have a minimal price tag?

Over the last 12-18 months, popular lock manufacturers like Schlage and Kwikset have introduced iOS and Android-connected deadbolts for your home. Results have been somewhat mixed but there has clearly been an interest amongst consumers for this type of technology. This week, Brinks announced a new competitor in this space that blends familiar features with some new ideas.

The Array Digital Deadbolt has all the typical app-connected qualities. But instead of using low-power connection options like ZigBee or Bluetooth, Brinks is relying on Wi-Fi to communicate between devices. Because of the increased power drain, a solar panel has been built-in to the lock to help keep things running. More details below.

Lecia makes some of the most visually appealing products on the market today. From its military-inspired cameras to those ultra-sexy binoculars, you know each release is going to be a show-stopper. Today, Leica has released a new rugged and waterproof camera that still manages to look great. While it technically fits in the same category as GoPro, don’t expect similar styling…or price. The Leica X-U is a whole different animal that blends design and functionality into a unique package.

We first learned of Amazon’s Dash Replenishment devices about a year ago as details were just starting to leak out. Since then, Amazon launched its Dash Buttons across a handful of brands and slowly released more information on its plans for this service. Today, the first products with built-in Replenishment functionality have been released.

In case you’re not familiar, Amazon Dash Replenishment tracks the inventory of a consumable good and automatically re-orders it when levels get low. The initial example was Quirky’s Poppy Coffeemaker, but now the technology is available in a handful of other products…
