I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t enjoy good barbecue, but I’ve also never met anyone who enjoys cleaning the grill afterward. Whether you’re a vegan or a carnivore, scraping and scrubbing away the charred and greasy remnants of whatever food you just cooked, with the brush flicking the charred bits at your clothes on the backstroke, is about as enjoyable as cleaning the toilet. The only thing worse is not cleaning the grates until the next time you’re ready to grill. Just as robots have relieved us of the drudgery of vacuuming and scrubbing floors, the Grillbot frees us from cleaning the ‘cue.
The Grillbot is a battery-powered robot with three removable rotating wire brushes that automatically cleans your barbecue grill. You simply place it on the cool or warm grill, push a button, and put the lid on the barbecue. The surface temperature needs to be less than 250 degrees Fahrenheit, but a heat sensor will warn you if it’s too hot. If the grill is cool enough, the Grillbot’s brushes will spin, stop, and restart in a random fashion that makes the robot crawl across the surface of the grill. Things get a little noisy as the plastic chassis repeatedly bangs against the barbecue’s lid, but enduring the clatter is vastly better than scrubbing and scraping by hand.
The Grillbot isn’t nearly as sophisticated as a robot vacuum or floor scrubber, but it doesn’t need to be. The upside of its simpler design is a lower price tag: $119.95 or $139.95 for the Grillbot and a carrying case that costs $29.95 if purchased separately. Given how greasy the device got after just a few cleanings, the case is a good investment that will keep the grime isolated to the robot. Well, mostly. Removing the brushes for periodic cleanings is bound to leave your hands dirty, and you’ll occasionally want to scrub down the rest of the Grillbot—and the rest of your barbecue—too. But you’ll never need to scrape the grates, and that’s awesome.
Triple Aught Design’s FAST series of tactical bags are some of the best ever made. But – though they are quick, easy, and expandable – they’re still too bulky for some extreme minimalists. Luckily, the brand has addressed that one drawback with their new FAST Pack Scout.
This mil-spec Invista Cordura nylon & Hypalon bag still features everything that’s great about their other FAST line bags – compatibility with their modular platform, a wealth of storage options (from PALS webbing to compartmental internal pouches and pockets), and easy access via a large clamshell opening. But it also has a major advantage when it comes to minimalism, as the Scout offers up 15 liters of storage in a package that weighs a total of 2.2 pounds. It also features an integrated mesh hydration sleeve, compression straps, a 1″ stability belt, and a full-height zippered internal mesh pocket. This backpack is honestly one of the most comprehensively well-executed bags for its size we’ve ever seen – and it’s available for $195.
Overall if you want a bag that is built to take a beating and don’t mind paying a premium price, then this bag is for you. If you like this post you may like some others so please check them out.

One of the problems with consumer drones is that unless you’re using them to shoot video, they can actually get kind of boring after a while. Flying them pointlessly up and down and back and forth only stays interesting for so long. That’s why a group of Slovakian entrepreneurs have created Drone n Base. It lets drone pilots race one another, engage in aerial dogfights, or play games like capture the flag. Each Drone n Base kit contains one miniature smartphone-controlled quadcopter, a charger with two batteries, and a base that can be placed on the ground or hung vertically. Both the copter and the base contain multiple infrared receivers and LEDs. This allows the system to “know” when the quadcopter has flown over the base, allowing that base (and others) to be used as a checkpoint in multi-drone races. If one of the drones misses a base, the pilots are alerted to the fact via their iOS or Android phones.
Other possibilities include playing capture the flag (where a virtual flag is captured by flying over a base), or a firefighting game in which the drone “fills up” by hovering over one base, then attempts to put out a virtual fire at another base by shooting at it with its infrared LED. Additionally, the drones can shoot at one another with their LEDs, registering direct hits by causing the struck copter to shut off and fall down. They can also temporarily activate a virtual shield by flying over a base, which protects them from other drones’ shots.
The designers are currently raising production funds for Drone n Base, on Indiegogo. A pledge of US$125 will currently get you a kit, when and if they’re ready to go – an onboard FPV camera may be added as a stretch goal. The planned retail price is $199.

Top-flight headphone maker V-Moda is challenging listeners to recall their high school chemistry days with the brand’s first pair of in-ears in four years, the Zn. As those familiar with the good ol’ periodic table will recall, the Zn’s moniker is the elemental symbol for zinc, apropos here as the V-Moda employ a patented process to cast the futuristic buds from zinc alloy to leverage its “unique hardness and resonance.” Presented as a limited edition pair of buds, the stylish Zn boast a number of features to create an a high-performance in-ear that matches Italian style with “unmatched durability.” The Zn have been designed to be a go-to choice for every kind of listening, from your daily commute, to your workout routine, and even your late-night musical revery.
Inside the zinc alloy casings rest 8mm drivers, surrounded by Italian-made acoustic filters “from a limited supply” which V-Moda calls the “gatekeepers of golden acoustics.” The filters are designed to allow for tight detail, and rich resonance, while the drivers are said to be tuned for enhanced clarity of midrange instruments like vocals and acoustic guitar for a more natural sound. The claimed frequency response for the Zn is an impressive 2-25kHz, matching up on paper with V-Moda’s claims that the Zn were designed with audiophiles in mind. The earphones come with eight pairs of V-Moda’s patented Bliss 3.0 eartips to allow for a tight fit and improved noise isolation for any earsize. Other accessories include the company’s Kevlar-reinforced DiamondBack cable system, a three-button iOS mic piece, a small carrying case, and even removable wrap-around earpieces, letting you strap in for a good run, or let the earpieces hang during more relaxed listening applications.
Overall, this is an amazing, rugged and really well designed piece of tech that would be on the top of my list no doubt. V- Moda made only 25000 of these so they will sell out pretty quickly. Coming in at around $180 (₹12000). Also you can expect the best of quality as it is doing from one of the best headphone manufacturers too date.

Ultimate Ears boasts an impressive record with its line of Bluetooth speakers since the release of the original UE Boom in 2013, which it followed up with the smaller UE Mini Boom and the larger UE Megaboom. All of these speakers pack big sound, loud colors and a portable form factor. Ultimate Ears’ latest and most compact speaker, the UE Roll, launched just in time for the Northern Hemisphere summer and we dive in to see how it hangs, dunks, floats, and sounds.
Although the UE Roll is perfectly comfortable playing music inside, it’s been designed to withstand the rigors of the outdoors. Those familiar with the Ultimate Ears Boom or Megaboom speakers will find the same plasma-coated acoustic skin on the Roll. Combined with the tough silicone body, which also protects and covers the auxiliary and USB ports, the UE Roll is IPX7 waterproof for splashing, dunking, and immersing (not to exceed 3.3 ft (1 m) for more than 30 minutes). Even the auxiliary and micro USB connectors are waterproof for those rare instances when liquid does sneak its way in a bit. In addition to the unique shape, the UE Roll features a marine-grade bungee cord. It doesn’t matter that this speaker can’t stand up on end like the rest of them, since users can hook or hang the UE Roll in so many more imaginative ways. Umbrella poles, bicycle handlebars, backpacks, and shoulder straps suddenly become mounts for your speaker. The only real limiting factor towards creative placement is the depth of the attachment point. Objects that are too thick won’t let the bungee reach around and stay clasped. Too thin, and all it takes is a light bump to unintentionally unlatch the bungee cord.
Overall the Ultimate Ears Roll proves that it’s possible for a pint-sized portable speakers to feature an original design with a well-rounded sound signature. While some similarly-sized speakers may have “better” audio output, they tend to be more expensive and the kind intended to stay indoors away from dirt, concrete, and water. Those who want to adventure outside will appreciate the UE Roll’s tough, waterproof exterior and go-everywhere attitude. The extended Bluetooth range and marine-grade bungee cord also lets the UE Roll be carried further and in more ways than your standard wireless speaker.

Go into any big box electronics store, walk through the audio or mobile accessories aisles, and prepare to be bowled over by Bluetooth speakers. What started as a percolating entry point has turned into a full-blown fight for any flat surface a portable speaker can rest on. Now familiar names like Beats, Bose, Sony, Samsung, Logitech, Jawbone and Jabra (among many, many others) are coming to market with them. Then there’s Fugoo, a relatively unknown upstart looking to not only compete, but also sound better than the rest. Fugoo’s pedigree comes from its founders. Some of them came from companies like Harmon Kardon, JBL and Toshiba, and now they’re decided to push out yet another Bluetooth speaker backed by the same marketing line we’ve heard a million times already: big sound from a small package. Why would they do that? Fugoo’s creators believe their speaker is different, and they’re right. Silly name aside, it’s one speaker, available with different ‘skins’ to suit the user’s purpose, and built to be mounted nearly anywhere. Priced at $200, the Fugoo has some stiff competition in the sound quality department, but if it sounds good enough, its utility features might just send it over the top.
Decked out in black and turquoise, the Sport naturally exudes a sense of the outdoors, like a trip to the beach or a lazy Sunday by the pool. The jacket is made up of a mix of a polyester-like material, soft rubber and hardened plastic, though the core inside has a waterproof seal protecting the internal components. On the top are three buttons that are basically the ‘O’ action button we’ve become familiar with, flanked by two volume controls keys. One side features power and Bluetooth buttons, while the other harbors a microUSB charging port and Aux-In jack.
Overall this product is perfect for almost everyone and doesn’t break the bank coming in at around $150 (RS: 9800). For this price tag you are truly getting a bang for your buck.

Jaybird first introduced its now uber-popular BlueBuds X in 2012. While the landscape of wireless headphones has rapidly shifted in the years since, the BlueBuds X held up in a manner that can’t be said about much of their competition. Part of this is due to the BlueBuds’ quality, but it also has to do with the lifetime warranty against sweat-related damage. That said, it was certainly time for a refresh. While Jaybird covered sweat-related damage, some found that general wear and tear was enough to render their headphones unusable. This, combined with advances in terms of sound quality meant that it was a perfect time to introduce the sequel. Ditching the branding for a simpler name, the Jaybird X2 in-ears are instantly recognizable, and could even be confused for the BlueBuds, but there are big changes under the hood.
While the BlueBuds X were available in two colors, the Jaybird X2s bump that up to six options: Midnight Black, Storm White, Alpha, Ice, Fire, and Charge. The overall look is very similar to the BlueBuds X but with more color and less chrome. The design reflects the minimalism popular in 2015 designs, and the X2s definitely look better as a result. The build is plastic but still quite solid. Like the BlueBuds X, the Jaybird X2s come with a one-year limited warranty as well as a lifetime warranty against sweat-related damage. This sweat resistance makes the X2s a good option for bringing to the gym, as do the in-ear “fins” meant to hold them in place.
The original BlueBuds X claimed a battery life of around 8 hours, but often struggled to reach that number. The Jaybird X2s claim 8 hours as well, but they actually reach that number in use. For some reason Jaybird calls this Battery HD, which is puzzling, but this battery life is still impressive given the small size. The price is $150.

Three years ago if you wanted a drone to take high-quality video, you had to shell out tons of cash and rely on a big, bulky flyer. With the Micro Drone 3.0 from Extreme Flyer, you get 720p HD quality video, all attached to one of the smallest drones on the planet. Video can be streamed directly to your smartphone, and works with live streaming apps like Periscope and Meerkat. And to help you concentrate on getting great footage, this quadcopter is incredibly stable, flying consistently thanks to motion sensors while it soars up to 300ft, through 45mph winds, with a battery life of around 8 minutes per charge.
We hope you enjoyed this post and if you did you might like some others so please check them out.

As a kid, pogo-sticks always looked like fun, but were inevitably disappointing to use. US-based Vurtego, however, designs pogo-sticks for adults and they’re a bit more on the extreme side. Its new V4 can launch users up to 10 ft (3 m) into the air and is ideal for a mid-life crisis. The V4 Pro is Vurtegopogo’s flagship pogo stick. They’ve spent the past five years playing around with different designs, and this is the result of thousands of hours of R&D. If you want the best pogo stick ever created, the V4 Pro is your best bet.
There are three versions of V4. A standard model is designed for most appeal, and which will offer “a soft, smooth bounce that resembles a portable trampoline.” The Pro model has a longer slide shaft for higher jumping and the Fit flavor is geared to exercise and performance training. As well as two color options, there are also small, medium and large sizes.
Designed to be be robust, the V4 comprises an aircraft aluminum casing, a shock absorber to soften impacts and a stainless steel slide-shaft. The V4 uses an air-spring that is adjustable for anyone over 75 lb (34 kg). Users add or release air to change the stiffness of the bounce. This means that people of radically different weights can use the same V4 by adjusting the internal air pressure accordingly and that the bounce-height can be adjusted to a user’s preference.
