Wristwatch Clip Keeps Things On Time

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned mechanical wristwatch. I like to have the time displayed to me elegantly and digital watches are just so impersonal. Plus, they’re usually super stylish and can pair well with any wardrobe. Mechanical wristwatch wearers do run into a common issue, however. The watch sometimes gets a little out of sync. It’s easy to find them lagging behind or speeding up slightly from proper time. Obviously, this is not ideal and kind of defeats the purpose of having a wristwatch in…

How You Can Build Your Own Tractor Beam At Home For $100

But now, thanks to modern innovations like 3D printers and newly published research, almost anyone can build their own tractor…

Able to augment focal length, optical zoom, or the intake of light, camera lenses allow a photographer to fully capture their environment. Unfortunately, understanding how camera lenses work or buying the ideal camera lens is far from simple. Wouldn’t it be nice, then, if there was a camera that could inherently take amazing photos without the need of a lens? Enter the L16, a newly developed…

This Japanese “Virtual Girlfriend” Is Inventively Creepy

If you’re a fan of adult-comedy cartoon Archer, then you’ve no doubt laughed at (and been creeped out by) Krieger’s strange romance with Mitsuko Miyazumi. For those who don’t know the show, what makes the relationship both creepy and hilarious is the fact that Krieger is a living, breathing male whereas Mitsuko is a holographic virtual girlfriend that looks like an anime character. In the context of a rather off-the-wall and crude cartoon, the idea of a man pursuing a romance with a hologram makes…

How Digital Cameras Could Grow With Social Media

Digital cameras and social media don’t seem to have the closest relationship. Why use a camera to take a photo when you’ll have to use another device to post it online? When your phone does both, it’s hard to see the logic in that. Surprisingly, a study from Zion Market Research is estimating that the digital camera industry will grow by six per cent over the next five years. That might not sound like much. But considering that 2016 was the worst year for digital…
