Using your own muscles to propel a bike or skateboard is so played out in 2015. We’ve seen the lightest e-bike on the road and now a group of inventors is showing off “the world lightest” electric vehicle of any kind on Kickstarter.

The Stary Board is enjoying massive success after a few weeks, raising more than double its goal in that time. Weighing in less than most newborn babies at nine pounds, this new skateboard promises fast speeds at a low cost.  expand full story

You don’t need any experience with coding to take this course, as the tuition starts at the shallow end of Swift. However, you soon make progress, learning your way around Apple’s Xcode app and the features of iOS 9. You can then move on to iCloud integration, setting up notifications, and using the new stackView and AVAudioRecorder classes.

The format is step-by-step video instruction, followed by an assignment to test out your new skills. All together, there are ten functioning apps to build. This process not only hardwires the newly acquired skills into your brain, but it also gives you a nice portfolio. In total, the course amounts to 35 hours of content.

  • Be one of the first to build apps for iOS 9 and dominate the App Store’s top downloads

Convenience and security are usually polar opposites. But the QuickLock uses NFC and Bluetooth to provide one-tap access to your protected stuff. You can currently pick one up for $49 with free shipping. That’s $8 less than Amazon’s shipped price where it gets 3/5 star reviews from limited reviewers.

Gizmag.com and Cnet.comboth gave it solid reviews. The QuickLock is made from die cast zinc alloy, making it practically unbreakable, and it has no keyhole. Instead, it comes with a key card, which you simply swipe over the lock to gain access. Alternatively, you can unlock the QuickLock from your phone, or with the separately available keyfobs and ring. To give other people access, you can sync up to fifty keyfobs or cards with each QuickLock, and an unlimited number of phones. This system is a lot more secure than a regular combination lock because you don’t have to pass around codes. The lock charges via the supplied micro USB cable, and it will remain operational for two years on a single charge.
  • Made of die cast zinc alloy, rendering it virtually indestructible
  • Allows for one-tap access via a fob or ring (sold separately), a card, or smartphone
