Golf sensors are by no means a new addition to the world of sporting goods. We’ve seen other models that offer smartphone connected tracking in a variety of ways. Today, a new option is entering the fray that attempts to paint a clear picture of your game.

The PIQ golf sensor blends Bluetooth, GPS, motion sensors and NFC together with the idea of providing more data than has been offered before. It’s an improved design in comparison to the competition with 18 tags that use NFC to identify individual clubs when you take them out of the bag. But it’s all of the data that it collects that really makes PIQ a stand out.  expand full story

Bluetooth earbuds that connect to our iOS devices are not a new trend. We’ve seen them in varying degrees of design and success over the last few years. Doppler Labs is aiming to take that design and help you hear in a whole new way. No, not hear your music, but the sounds around you.

The Here Active Listening System is designed to allow users to customize the sounds of the world around them. Filter out a crying baby? No problem. Bump up the bass at that concert?

Update (1/24 9:00am): @ericmata75 is our winner, thank you to everyone for entering our giveaway!

The story goes, as told by co-founder Andrew Allen, that Paper by FiftyThree started out of a love for analog products. That four Microsoft colleagues turned friends with the resources of a Fortune 500 company found a greater passion in a pencil, scissors…and paper. Often Andew, Georg Petschnigg, Jonathan Harris and Julian Walker would sit down and discuss their ideas, talking about possibilities that bounced around in their heads. These brainstorming sessions would always be recorded on a scrap, or coffee filter, napkin or Moleskin, notably they weren’t writing in Word or the like – they were writing everything out.

The feeling of analog products, the feel of cutting paper or dragging a pencil across paper. How do they bring that feeling to a digital world? It was at that point, they bunkered down in a 5th floor New York apartment and set out to re-imagine digital design. They set out to make Paper. expand full story
