Now that Apple has slowed down on innovative design, it's great to see that Microsoft is picking up the slack. Yesterday they put out a video of their new Surface Pro, and the thing looks amazing: I'm digging not only that they've developed their own style for the video—remember that
GoTennaPro is the world’s smallest, lightest, most affordable tactical mesh networking radio, and it works with any smartphone. It is designed and engineered for ultimate water/dust/impact-proof durability (MILSPEC/IP68); has swappable antennas; and the most powerful and private mesh-networking for text-based convos and off-grid geo-tagging, without WiFi or cell service. goTenna Pro is 12X lighter and 10X smaller than legacy comms systems. goTenna Pro represents a true paradigm shift for tactic
Pulse worked with JBL to create the first, portable, battery-powered, linear-array PA system in its class. The design challenge was to marry ergonomics and portability (the EON ONE PRO is only 37.5 pounds, fully collapses into the base, and needs no shoulder bags or straps!) with audio clarity and strength. Coming up with a design solution for interface for the reduced size mixer also posed a great chance for unique design solutions!

Here's the type of machine that shirt manufacturers use to fold shirts into perfect rectangles off of the production line: You can find low-tech manual versions online and at big-box stores for about $10 to $25, but this guy made his for a dollar:
We helped Moen create a product that allows users to wake up and turn on the shower from their phones with the shower knowing their personal preferences (temperature, etc). The shower will heat up to the desired temperature and then pause until you arrive, which helps decrease water waste. Once in the shower, users can restart the flow of water with the U by Moen shower controller on the shower wall.
This week Amazon revealed the new lifestyle device they've been working on, the Echo Show.

When people say "3D printing" they commonly mean one of two things: FDM printing, which turns a plastic filament into something that can be squirted out of a nozzle; or one of multiple sintering processes, by which a machine uses lasers to fuse parts together out of metal powder. Plastic
Faster transportation design has been in the headlines recently, as Elon Musk unveiled his unsurprisingly not-a-joke Boring Company and stoked more Hyperloop fervor. But where this kind of futuristic tech might take another decade-plus to deliver, some plucky startups are seeing money in earlier engineering. As of this March, Boom

From Germany comes the Mellow Drive, a smartly designed, Red-Dot-Design-Award-winning way to motorize any skateboard. Look at how easy they've made this: The thing tops out at 25 miles per hour and has a range of nine miles. And as they mentioned in the video, you can double that range
This is hilarious: A company called Juicero Inc., one of "the top-funded U.S. hardware startups in 2016," according to Bloomberg, produces an eponymous $400 cold-press juice machine. The end user pays $5 to $8 to have sealed pouches of fruit and vegetable parts mailed to them on a subscription basis.

With Torch, there’s only one light, which we call the “Light Ring.” The Light Ring functions as a visible prompt. It says “hey, the internet is available to one or more kids in the house.” And when it’s off, it says “the internet is off for every kiddo in the house.” (Adults have access anytime – whether the Light Ring is on or off. YAY being an adult!)
Your average County Fair amusement park ride is controlled by some ex-con pushing a joystick and looking forward to his next cigarette break. But what if riders could control the machine themselves, in a hands-free way? Artist/designer Daniel de Bruin has actually developed such a machine. The Neurotransmitter 3000, which
This is incredible! A company called SPI has developed a camera so absurdly sensitive that the thing can shoot on a moonless night and make the resulting footage look like it was shot under the sun. And the X27, as it's called, does this in real time, in full color.
