Cool CreoPop pen lets you draw in 3D

CEOPOPIf you think 3D printers are cool, then how about a pen that allows you to draws objects in 3D that’s truly cool? It’s called CreoPop from a Singapore-based company of the same name originally funded through Indiegogo. The pen uses specially designed ink made from photopolymers that flows freely from the pen and solidifies when exposed to LED diodes.

Cool in More Ways

Now when I say cool, I mean it in multiple senses of the word. Yes, it is cool – very funky; imagine you can draw almost in thin air. It’s also cool because of the types of inks it uses (more later) and again cool, since the ink that flows from the pen is more or less cool to the touch. Read more…at CanoeTech Blog.

Matador reusable Wet Bag travels on your keychain

droplet_v2_beach_square_002With careful planning and expert folding one can cram everything one needs needed including toiletries and necessary gadgets into a small carry case in a backpack for a two-day trip and a short flight. But returning with sweaty clothes or damp swim shorts can put a damper on the return trip.

And something I wish I had on my last adventure is the Matador Droplet Wet Bag. It’s a 100% polyester waterproof ultra compact wet bag that measures 27 cm x 23 cm and has a 3 L capacity. It’s not designed to be submersible, but it is ideal for keeping things like damp swimsuits separated from your precious computer gear.   It can also be used the other way around as a place to store some of your gadgets and things that you don’t want getting wet when it’s raining or water nearby. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

on-off-switch
It might not be the hoverboard Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly cruised around on in Back to the Future II nor will it levitate in mid-air but the new Storm eSkateboard is trying to quickly get off the ground.

The ultimate mobile device for $9,995

sparkWhat sparks into mind when you read the headline? Another diamond encrusted or gold iPhone designed for those with a significant amount of disposable income? Well, this “ultimate mobile device” does come with 4G LTE – and with four wheels. Not it’s not a smartphone, but rather the all-new 2016 GM Chevy Spark.

The new wheels rolled out last month under a shroud of secrecy. As a Gadget Guy, admittedly it piqued my curiosity as nothing was pre-announced except for a picture of a box and the invitation to see the “unboxing” of the ultimate mobile device.

“The ultimate mobile device plays on the fact it has tech features just like a cell phone, but it is still a car and gets you places,” says Jamie Dewhurst, Assistant Brand Manager for Chevrolet. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Battery Saver Setting

Kulr email image 2

Cooler, when used in the context of a place to keep your beer cold when on the beach doesn’t really stir up any excitement in one’s mind. But Kulr, which sounds the same is still a cooler but it’s high-tech and in a whole different category.

First off, the cooler part. It looks like a standard cooler, but a little more sleek and stylish. It has a scratch resistant shell and an elevated slip base to keep it slightly raised off the ground. It has extra thick insulated walls to keep your “brewskis” cold and will store up to 18 standard sized cans. And should you decide to go with bottles, there’s a custom bottle opener under the hood.
