For many years we have been clamoring for some kind of new gaming-related venture from the fabled Atari brand. Cemented in to the interactive entertainment space since the 1970’s, the company has never really made much effort as far as fans are concerned towards new gaming products, until recently that is. The brand, which has felt largely underutilized over the years considering its pop-culture status, has been teasing a new console as of late.
While a teaser video hit last month followed by new images of the PC-based Ataribox console, there are still a number of important details up in the air. Mainly, the games and how content will be offered to consumers. Nonetheless, it is a product gamers have been asking for, unlike Atari’s new Speakerhat. A product no one has ever asked for, and especially not from Atari… expand full story

High-tech digital picture frames aren’t exactly new, as we’ve seen a few different models popup in the past few months. Samsung’s The Frame is geared towards casual use, while the Depict Frame better suits art aficionados and enthusiasts. The Merual Canvas on the other hand, is a more modest approach which positions itself in between these two sides of the digital canvas spectrum. So rather than dominate an entire wall, it looks to enhance an existing area; be it by complementing family photos or displaying favorite artists’ work in your study.
Electric skateboards have slid onto the scene with solid response from consumers in recent years as city dwellers look for an alternative to costly transportation.

Each of which feature a hub motor that provides different max speeds and range. Full details below.
ATGames is known for its vintage consoles that come filled with many of our favorites from the Atari, Nintendo and Sega eras. In fact, many of its machines not only come packed with titles built-in, but some of them can even play those old cartridges in the attic once you dust them off. Despite not being nearly as sought after as the official NES and upcoming SNES Classic Editions from Nintendo itself, the ATGames machines offer significantly more value in terms of actual software and features in many ways.
The company is set to drop new premium versions of its Atari and Sega Genesis Flashback consoles this fall, along with value-priced editions and portables. Today we have more details on each, pricing and pre-order information… expand full story

We’ve seen a steady stream of Alexa-enabled devices from Amazon and other manufacturers throughout 2017, but the response has been hit or miss. Ecobee installed the voice-assistant on its latest smart thermostat. And just about every smart home accessory offers some kind of compatibility.
All of that aside, I think we’ve found the product category that makes the most sense to offer Alexa-integration. Our alarm clock. The new Sandman Doppler just hit Kickstarter with a unique design that not only sports Amazon’s voice assistant, but is also packed with USB-A/C ports and a bright, cheery display. Through less than 24 hours, it has already flown past its initial $25,000 goal. Head below to learn more.
While they are reducing in size and complexity everyday, your typical home printer can still be quite cumbersome as anything more than a stationary office utility. That’s where smaller, more portable photo printers and the like come into play. Canon and Polaroid immediately come to mind with the SELPHY and the Zip mobile printers, respectively. These products offer up a much more simple and streamlined process, not to mention a much smaller footprint than your typical home options. And now, Canon is looking to push the market forward once again as it is set to launch the latest model in the compact photo printer SELPHY series… expand full story

This morning Atari sent out an email giving old school gamers a better look at its newest console, the Ataribox. Atari, the company that’s been out of the console scene for some time now, is hoping to get back in the game with this retro-inspired system. This is the first mention we’ve received since the teaser release/video from last month. The Ataribox will reportedly come loaded with old and new content and could even rival Nintendo’s upcoming classic SNES. The hope here is that Atari creates something that stays true to the old school gaming genre while at the same time appealing to new fans of Atari. expand full story
Amabrush is the “world’s first fully automatic toothbrush” and I can’t believe that it took this long for someone to come up with it. While our daily routine takes just a few minutes, that adds up to a significant amount of time over the course of our life. Amabrush says it can do the job in just 10 seconds.

Have you ever tried to record a conversation on your iPhone? Believe it or not, it isn’t as easy as you would think it would be. There are few paid apps that attempt to take on the task, but all of them fall just a little short. You could always tape your conversations the old fashioned way through a speakerphone and recording device, but in this day and age that’s just not acceptable. PhotoFast is attempting to provide a solution to this problem with its Call Recorder adapter after a successful Indiegogo campaign.
Vinyl releases have become all the rage the last few years with a plethora of new turntables hitting the market and a seemingly endless stream of special edition album/soundtrack releases.

Radiohead is one of those enduring bands that has been crossing through genres for over 20 years now with as strong a cult following as anyone. Clearly the group is a prime candidate for one of these insane re-releases and it looks like the band’s groundbreaking OK Computer special edition is doing just that… expand full story
Gone are the days of buying albums or individual songs for your iPod. I can’t remember the last time that I gave up $0.99 for a new release on the iTunes music store. Let alone comb through my library to hand select which songs made the cut for my iPod that week. The reality is that paying $10 per month for unlimited access to entire catalogs of songs has quickly changed this industry in nearly every way.
But I guess people still want an iPod Shuffle experience. Or at least over 9,000 backers of the Mighty Spotify Player do. That’s how many early adopters shelled out $70 well over a year ago to get their hands on this mini streaming media player. After raising nearly $600,000 on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the Mighty is finally available to all this week.
