MARS – The Levitating Speaker

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I find myself wondering what it’d be like to live in the “future” say, the year 2115. I imagine cars, buildings, and life in general would be drastically different. In this futuristic vision, I imagine speakers would look something like this. Only thing is you can buy this speaker NOW! It’s a levitating Hi-Fi speaker called MARS. Allen Zhang the founder of CrazyBaby and lead designer of MARS brought to life something I honestly couldn’t imagine. Although the speaker only levitates while above the cylindrical looking subwoofer, which also has usb ports, it is made to take with you on the go. MARS is  made from aluminum grade aluminum and it’s magnetic, so when listening to music outside the house, you can just stick it to something metal. Another cool feature the speaker has is that it will adjust the volume based on how close or far you are to the speaker. The company definitely has vision, can’t wait to see if they make any other products. Check out their website and pre-order for only $189.00!

Kodak is the next company to take a shot at becoming GoPro’s biggest competitor. With the release of the SP360, users will have many options on how they like to shoot their personal footage. The SP360 comes equipped with a 16-megapixel camera with an MOS sensor that records in full 1080/720p. The camera can also be controlled by Andoid or iOS, which is nothing new when compared to the GoPro. Lastly, Kodak was smart enough to make the camera water proof, freeze proof and shock proof from 6.6ft.

Whether it’s time-lapse, the 360 round mode, 360 panorama, front mode, front/ back mode – the SP360 has a lot to offer. Priced at $350, Kodak might soon be a top seller among portable cameras.

The Copenhagen Wheel – The Wheel of the Future

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Copanhagen Wheel, was first developed in 2009 with MIT’s Senseable City Lab and the City of Copenhagen. As of now, the “futuristic wheel” is in its first stages of commercial production and aims to have thousands shipped out around the world by the end of 2014. The best thing about the Copenhagen Wheel, is perhaps how sleek it is. While many electric bicycles appears to look like miniature motor cycles, this wheel offers a true bicycle experience.

Why is this wheel so unique and cool? Well, the wheel is used by unlocking it through your Bluetooth settings on your phone. Once you turn the app on your phone, you can control and use a variety of settings by the press of a button. Once you begin pedaling, you are set for a brand new ride. The Copanhagen Wheel also features a rechargeable lithium ion battery with over 30+ miles of range. Buy the wheel, swap it out, and suddenly biking long distance is easy and enjoyable.

Fly Nixie has recently been working on the very first wearable camera that can fly, I was skeptical at first, but if they can nail this technology down, say goodbye to all the GoPro’s. The Nixie wearable camera looks like a thick bracelet, but once snapped off, it will take flight and follow your every move. Whether you want to take photos or video, the Nixie will be able to capture all of the moments. I just can’t imagine all the possibilities where this could come in handy: sporting events, festivals, concerts, the list goes on.
