Starling is a science-backed wearable device that can boost brain development in young children. Research has proven that the number of words a child hears throughout the day strongly predicts future vocabulary, IQ, and emotional well-being. Starling keeps a running count of spoken words through direct verbal engagement. Pair it with the VersaMe app to set word count goals, monitor engagement progress, and set challenges. Shaped like a friendly little star, it is soft, seamless and safe, attachi
The North Face has just released this video of their Access Pack, their now-available backpack design with a novel feature: A spring-loaded lid. Whether or not it's a necessary feature, and whether folks will pony up the $235 asking price, is another matter. The steel frame that makes the

An old Army saw has it that The General asks, "What does it do?"The Senator asks, "How much does it cost?"The soldier asks, "How much does it weigh?"We think of soldiers as warfighters, but for even the most combat-hardened vet, the amount of time spent in firefights is a fraction
