The company's smallest, most affordable body yet, the Red Raven Camera is still highly capable, thanks to an 8.8 megapixel Red Dragon sensor that lets it record raw 4K video at 120 fps or 2K video at 240 fps. It weighs just 3.5 lbs., uses the company's signature modular design to let you easily swap out accessories as needed, and the integrated Canon EF mount means you have access to a huge family of lenses suitable for nearly any shooting situation.
Able to adapt automatically to a variety of materials, the Glowforge 3D Laser Printer is as easy to use as it is versatile. Thanks to a pair of on-board cameras, the machine can automatically recognize both the material it's working with and its thickness, and gives you the ability to actually see the placement of your design before you begin. It can also cut and engrave directly over a drawing, letting you create new designs with nothing more than a pen, works with Mac, PC, iOS, and Android, with the ability to print directly from apps like Photoshop and Illustrator, has a 12"x20" working bed, and thanks to a beam of light that's only as wide as a hair, can engrave complex shapes with 1,000 DPI resolution.
It's not the first remote capable of controlling a smart home. It's just one of the first to be designed with that in mind. The Logitech Harmony Elite Remote builds on the company's legacy of rock solid remotes with an improved layout and buttons dedicated to home automation control. Despite the changes, it keeps the best features of the company's prior flagships, including a color touchscreen, vibration feedback, and an included Hub that lets you control your entire setup remotely via the Harmony app, even if your gear is inside a cabinet or in another room.
There are a myriad of ways to check the weather outside: TV, your phone, actually going outside, etc. But few are as attractive as the Tempescope Ambient Weather Display. A project years in the making, this sleek tower-like gadget reproduces various weather conditions in a box inside your home. It can create rain, clouds, storms (complete with LED-based lightning), and sunshine, and can show you the forecast in your area, or the conditions in another place — allowing you to "share the sky" with loved ones, even if they're thousands of miles away.
Standalone power meets multi-room capability in the Revo Supersystem. Able to connect wirelessly to a wide variety of sources, including DAB+, FM, and Internet radio, Spotify Connect, and Bluetooh, this system uses UNDOK technology to share audio with multiple other systems, while you control the proceedings from an iOS or Android device. It uses an 80 watt Class-D amp to power the twin 3.5" BMR flat-panel drivers and ported 6" subwoofer, and looks great doing it, with a wood cabinet in American walnut or subtle matt paint finishes, and a front fascia and grille crafted from anodized 6000 series aluminium.
Most of us are on our phones a lot each day. Few of us know exactly how much. Instant gives you an at-a-glance view of this information and much more. Available for both iPhone and Android, this app lets you see your overall device usage as well as an app-by-app breakdown, shows you all the places you've gone throughout the day and how long you spent at each, a brief look at your fitness stats, including steps taken and total activity time, and also has a web interface for viewing on any device.
Social acceptance of pot is growing steadily, and it's being legalized in more and more places. But while the stuff from the dispensary is typically really good, nothing compares to enjoying a crop you grew yourself. The Leaf Cannabis Growing System makes it easy to do just that. This self-contained unit keeps a pair of plants stored safely away, continuously monitoring a number of factors important to growth, and adjusting the environment and providing precise doses of nutrients as needed. The custom LED growlight ensures your plants get the right amount and the right kind of light, and a companion app lets you keep an eye on things, literally and figuratively — in addition to showing you up-to-the-minute data, it also connects to the built-in HD camera so you can view your progress without needing to open the door.
Windmills are a great way to harness green energy. Unfortunately, they typically require a permanent place to sit. The Trinity Portable Wind Turbine Power Station is different. Designed to fold up and move with you, this family of windmills is usable in breezes of as little as 4 mph, water and weather resistant, have an automatic stop feature, and built-in batteries that let you store the energy you generate. Available in sizes ranging from the highly packable, smartphone-charging 50 to the home-powering 2500.
It doesn't look like any set you'll find on the wall of your local big box retailer. And that's the whole point. Designed by the Parisian duo of Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, the Samsung Serif TV is more like a piece of furniture than a soulless black screen. From the side, the TV's shape resembles a capital "I", with the bottom serif serving as a sturdy base, and the top acting like a shelf. The collection includes three screen sizes, comes in white, dark blue, and red, can be used with optional legs, and unfortunately won't be on sale anytime soon.
There are plenty of options if you're wanting a drone to patrol the skies. Not so much for exploring our planet's largest wilderness under the water. The Trident Underwater Drone promises to do exactly that. It uses a hydrodynamically offset thruster design, which offers the speed to cover distances quickly, yet the precision necessary to maneuver in tight spots. It connects to a Wi-Fi buoy to let you control it remotely, can run for up to three hours on a single set of batteries, and has a built-in HD camera with LED lights for capturing footage.
You don't stand or sit in one place all day. But most speakers are made to direct sound to once certain point. The HiddenHub Smart Speaker is not. Using a 360-degree speaker array and advanced sensors, it analyzes the shape and acoustics of any room you set it in, then adjusts the audio as needed to match the space. It's completely wireless, with support for Bluetooth, AirPlay, and DLNA, can connect with Hidden Speaker units to create a whole-home system, has hidden, touch-sensitive controls for both playback and volume, LEDs that let it serve as a light source, and proximity sensors that let it sense when you enter the room and start playing right where you left off.
When you're looking for love, you can only hope to find someone you love as much as bacon. While Sizzl can't guarantee that, it can guarantee your match will love bacon as much as you do. This dating app for bacon lovers comes from the minds at Oscar Meyer, and promises to connect you with other like minded people. Each potential match shows you a profile picture, as well as how they like their bacon, whether they'd grab, offer up, or split the last piece of bacon on a date, and their location. Just hold down the sizzle button to indicate how much you like them, and if they like you back, you'll be notified so you can start chatting, share some bacon, and maybe even find you have more in common than an affinity for cured meats.
One of the biggest sticking points for upgrading to a 4K set has been the lack of content. Until now. The Amazon Fire TV 4K offers access to more 4K streaming content than any other media player, supporting Ultra HD movies and shows from both Netflix and Amazon Video. It uses a new video codec to deliver higher-quality visuals without using as much bandwidth, has a microSD slot for cheap and quick storage upgrades, and ties in to Alexa, a voice-powered assistant that can do everything from queue up videos and music to check the weather right from the remote.
Robotic arms aren't just for factories and Harry Potter rides anymore. The Makerarm is a slender fabrication system that attaches right to your desk. It has quick-changing tool heads that allow it to preform a number of tasks — including 3D printing, milling, laser engraving, and electronics assembly — and can reach up to 30 inches away while working on objects up to 10 inches tall. It's also auto-levelling, connects wirelessly, allowing you to continue working when you're not at your desk, and has a small footprint, so it's not taking up a ton of space when you are.

From the time it first debuted as part of Google Maps, Street View has been one of the mapping world's most interesting features. Now it's got an app of its own. The aptly-named Google Street View lets you explore the world one 360-degree view at a time. It offers a map view for finding places by location, a Gallery for exploring the most popular places on Earth, and even lets you create your own panoramas, either using the camera on your phone, or in a single click with a connected spherical camera. You can then upload your captures to Google Maps, or store them in a Private section of the app for discreet viewing.
Completely redesigned from top to bottom, Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond Speakers represent a rebirth for the long-running high-end audio line. The family includes the flagship 802 (pictured), 803, 804, and 805 models, and features an all-new cabinet that's formed from a single curve, with a solid aluminum "spine" holding it together. Aluminum is also used to build the Turbine head, which holds the Diamond tweeter and redesigned midrange driver, while the bass drivers, using an Aerofoil cone design to reduce distortion, sit in their own aluminum pods. The result is a speaker that offers incredible depth and clarity, and looks almost as good as it sounds.
