Coming from the South Australian brewery Coopers is a new automated brewing system which uses Wi-Fi, precise temperature control, and patented end of fermentation technology to make your favorite beers. Starting this holiday season, you will be able to purchase the BrewArt system from such high end stores as Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus, as well as from our good friends at Amazon. Bloomingdale’s will be offering the BrewArt system in their stores in major US cities, as well as in their online catalog. Neiman Marcus has featured the brewing system in their Christmas catalog as well as in their online…

Well folks. Here we are, December 3rd and I still don’t have a SNES Classic Edition console to review. Most of the review companies get a freebie from Nintendo, however this year I was trying to see if the statement made earlier this year by Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime was true. If you don’t remember my earlier SNES article, this is what he said back in September: “I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites,” he told the Financial Times, adding that Nintendo had “dramatically increased” production of the SNES…

Earlier this year we spoke with Cognitive Systems about their new Aura home monitoring system that offers a completely different approach to securing your home. Instead of installing cameras all over with wires running everywhere, Aura keeps an eye on things using wireless signals. By doing this, they aren’t limited by walls or other objects as a camera would be. Aura creates a mesh network (Note: this is not a WiFi network) throughout your home and can detect when the wireless signals are disrupted by an object moving around. This can trigger an alarm for you to review via the…

Robotics was a field which progressed quite slowly before linear actuators came along. Robots were big and clumsy, and only capable of tasks which did not require much in the way of control or finesse. Linear actuators changed the way robots worked, making them more capable of control, and therefore opening a wider range of industries to them. Since then, robots have appeared in almost every industry possible, from domestic to commercial, including assembly lines (which is where most people think of robots), and various aspects of manufacturing where precision and control over long periods of time make robots preferable…

I can’t believe it is that time of year once again but here we are, and actually it feels like we are quite a bit late at doing this (we are). Honestly, we have been having a rough time trying to piece things together since it has been such an amazing year for tech. With so many great things to pick from, how can you pick any one from most of the categories. We are going to do our best though and the following is the result of our sessions of warring things out. We did a good job (at…

Meural has recently secured the funding to get the ball rolling faster, breaking the brand out of the online realm and into over 100 retail stores around six different countries around the world, including the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, and the Netherlands. We have covered Meural in the past, including a review of the fantastic IPS digital frame we published back in May of this year. Meural’s Canvas enables you to put some of your favorite works of art on display, including an online catalog of both modern and classic art that you can download from. The Canvas itself already comes…

First Apple risked a major delay with the latest iPhone 8 and X as they played with trying to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the screen and couldn’t quite pull it off. Thankfully for them they were still able to bring the phone to market by scrapping the idea all together and pushing forward. However, now they are pushing back the release of their HomePod speaker due to unspecific reasons. Originally, the speaker was set for a December launch, which would have made it readily available for the holiday season. However, now they are saying it needs a little more…

It’s that favorite time of year where we get to rub our hands together and figure out what neat deals we will be able to find on Black Friday that will finish off our wishlist of toys, as well as find some of the best gifts for the coming holidays. Of course the most highlighted topics each year involve TVs. So many stores will be using TVs to entice people to stop by or ever camp out overnight, all in the hopes of getting one of those hard to find doorbuster. Now I don’t know if you plan on camping…

Ultimate Ears recently launched a new series of their (so far) amazing portable speakers, giving way to the new Blast and Megablast, which replaces the Boom and Megaboom speakers. This actually slipped under our own radar since somebody there forgot to tell us anything about it (doh!). In the past, we have raved about these speakers due to the amount of volume you get out of them, mixed with an amazing range. Their Boom was by far one of our favorite speakers of its size (still is), and even made Editor’s Choice in 2014. That being said, if these new…

Earlier this year, Amazon rolled out the ability to it’s Alexa assistant to use their speakers as a way of communicating around your home, in the form of an intercom system. All of which can be controlled by using nothing more than your voice. A prized feature that many seem to have jumped at using, especially since you can do it from anywhere using your Alexa app as well. Now, Google is spinning it’s wheels hard to catch up. Their speakers with built-in Google Assistant has now been given the ability to do the same. So if you chose the…
