While new 360-degree cameras have been revealing themselves here and there, they’ve generally included similar functionality. Among these new cameras, those of us who are into these VR devices may have seen Shenzen-based Insta360’s products come about. Some are iPhone-compatible which is nice, however they seem to have mixed reviews about the quality and performance of the cameras.
Today the company has introduced another Insta360 camera that offers a few special features that we haven’t seen before. Also compatible with iPhone, the Insta360 One is a pill-shaped little device that offers the usual 4K quality footage at 30 frames per second, and captures 24MP stills. As a bonus with this camera, we have the ability to take a 1080p frame as a photo from 360-degree videos that you shoot.

Throughout these last few weeks of the summer I’ve had the opportunity to try out a unique smart home device. Air conditioning costs truly add up, and there’s nothing I needed more than something to help me avoid excess fees.
Sensibo is a tiny device that connects your average wall/window air conditioner unit to the internet. It can be used with any model that has a remote control, including many brands like Frigidaire, LG, TCL, and much more. It started out as an Indiegogo campaign and collected over 200% of its needed funds to take off.

If you’ve been into the sous vide trend, you may have taken advantage of some of our deals on Anova’s Precision Cooker or other related products. Otherwise, sous vide is a form of cooking that intends to prepare food evenly, ensuring that inside is properly heated without overcooking the outside, and to retain moisture.
Now, the company that created the first at-home sous vide is revolutionizing the process again with the SousVide Supreme Touch+. Currently available on Kickstarter, it features a very similar design that adds a few innovative upgrades for enhanced cooking and convenience. Those familiar with the original SousVide Supreme shouldn’t have any issue using this one.
