According to Sonos, up to 70% of people don't wall-mount their TVs. The Sonos Playbase Speaker is designed for them. Standing roughly 2.3-inches tall, over two feet wide, and over a foot deep, it's able to support center-stand TVs up to 77 lbs, yet can fit underneath most TVs with legs on either end. In addition to using its ten speakers — six mid-range, three tweeters, and one woofer — to improve the sound of your favorite shows and movies, it also serves as a streaming music player, just like the rest of the Sonos family. Available in black or white.
Technology pushes forward at such a quick pace that many gadgets are already outdated by the time they hit store shelves. The Decibel Upgradeable Speaker looks to break this cycle by letting you replace any part inside its anodized aluminum chassis. That includes the electronics, which set together on a single board, the speakers, which include dual two-inch cast alloy bass drivers and two soft dome tweeters, and the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. It can charge directly over USB-C or via the included wireless charging dock, can link with other Decibel units for more room-filling sound, and is available with either a white or black removable grille.
It's hard to get better at table tennis without a playing partner that can adjust to your skill level. The Forpheus Ping Pong Robot can do just that. It uses two vision sensors and a motion sensor to measure the position of both its opponent and the movement of the ball 80 times per second. Using AI, it can then predict the trajectory of the ball and hit the ball back, and learn about your playing characteristics over time to help you make progress. It's not available for sale to private or commercial customers just yet but instead points to a future where robots can help you get better at skills you already have, instead of just doing things for you.
