A mechanical gaming-centric keyboard that doesn’t occupy a lot of desk real estate. expand full story

Today we’re getting into the ultimate set top box battle: 4K edition. At the moment, there are 3 major set top boxes that have the ability to stream 4K video, but which one packs the most bang for your buck. Since 4K content is rather limited at the moment, it’s a good idea to invest in something that caters to the eco-system you’re invested in, while providing enough of everything else until 4K really hits the main stream.

So today, we’re taking a look at three top contenders in this space. We have the Roku 4, Amazon Fire TV, and the NVIDIA Shield. Each lives in its own space, but offer very different experiences for different types of people. But enough talking about it, let’s get down to business….

The truth about drones: fun to fly but expensive if you want a full feature packed model. Take DJI’s latest release for example, which features 4K, auto-pilot and its own Wi-Fi connection, it will set you back more than $1,000. Even if you’re going to provide your own camera, those options still cost upwards of $600, if not more.

So what are your options if you need something a little more fiscally sound? A new Kickstarter project is attempting to bring an affordable drone to market that puts your iPhone right in the air… expand full story
