A few notch above the usual radios that you find in all electronics is Geneva.a Little more expensive, a little different design, and – in this case – a shameless flirt with the 60's transistorradioapparater.the Radio is reminiscent of both the Tandberg, Braun and Bang & Olufsens old resemodeller and is the big brother to the Touring S. That we recently tested.The tiny P-model is perfect when size does matter – it goes for example down in a small suitcase and takes no space on the bedside table – but the L model is almost an entire plant on its own.Geneva indicates the battery life to 30 hours, it is a conservative estimate because it plays a little longer than that at a moderate volume.But it is very nicely built, with the aluminium coated with a black, white, red, or – our favorite – konjaksbrunt leatherette.
Last Saturday I did something nearly everyone does when their friend goes to the bathroom at a bar: I checked Twitter.There, amidst the Hurricane Irma updates and breathless discussion about Hillary Clinton’s new book, was a very simple message from Darren Aronofsky.After spending a few seconds to try remember when I actually started following the Black Swan director (inconclusive), I realized what his message was saying: “now nyc scavengerhunt” next to an image of Jennifer Lawrence from his upcoming movie mother!My friend returned from the bathroom and I showed her the tweet.Was this like Sleep No More?She told me to take the paper across the street and find the yellow paint on the sidewalk and follow it until I found “the agent with the suitcase.” (All these agents!

A pitch recently landed in my inbox that didn’t make a lot of sense.The product: the Zippelin, a foldable suitcase with bike tubes that inflated to create a frame.The concept is actually quite simple.Sewn into the bag is a bike tube, an axle, and a pocket that stores the wheels.This is more or less how the new Freitag Zippelin bag was described to me.The smell of rubber feels industrious and somehow tactical.
Audio-Technica has revealed both a new wireless Bluetooth over-ear headphone model as well as a series of wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones.Unlike the brand’s other recent reveal — the upmarket ATH-ADX5000 (which comes with its own suitcase!)— all these newly released models are affordably priced, but still have quality-conscious listeners in mind.The ATH-AR5BT over-ear model follows the ATH-AR3BT, released earlier this year.Many specs are shared between the two wireless headphones, like a 30 hour battery life and support for Bluetooth aptX, AAC, and SBC codecs.But, there are some upgrades.
The American team behind Travelmate is based in San Francisco and has created a fully featured robot in the form of a suitcase that follows you around on its own.It's perfect when you're going to work, walking to school, traveling or even when you're shopping.Google uses the most common searches to improve its results.With Travelmate, you see something that combines robotics with adaptive elements of artificial intelligence that uses data to navigate through obstacles, adjust its speed and go through crowds without losing you.There is a lot of speculation about what artificial intelligence eventually leads to.In science fiction and in Hollywood movies, you see robots eventually gaining sentience and often revolting against their human captors.

But a picture is still worth more than all those words.Professional images will lend credibility to your brand and help customers feel more comfortable purchasing from your site.Avoid pixilated images, stock photos and any visuals that aren’t relevant to the product at hand.Your images should provide customers with almost as much information as they’d get from handling the product in person in order to reduce the friction involved in buying online.Help potential customers visualize how your product(s) could play a role in their lives by showcasing products in the settings where people are most likely to use them.For example, if you’re selling a suitcase, adding a shot of the product in an airport or train terminal would be effective.

Coatally want to change the way we look at the outerwear.a few years ago, the Charlotte Grapple with the suitcase in front of him.There should be a smart way to change a coat,” she says.Three years and a master in strategic marketing later she packed up the first shipment of their own coats.Before then, had every button and tygrulle already passed the Charlotte Apprehended offices in Uppsala, sweden.basically, it is about a solid color baskappa in the classic cut, designed to fit as many body shapes as possible.
You will never again have to worry about someone accidentally walking off with your suitcase from the baggage carousel if you invest in a Head Case luggage cover from UK weird-stuff retailer Firebox.The custom-made polyester spandex cover has your own mug (or your friend's or your cat's) printed all over it, bigger than life-size.You just have to provide a high-resolution photo.Firebox's example shows a bearded man grimacing with the cover wrapped over a hard-shell rolling suitcase.It definitely stands out from the usual sedate luggage designs.You will need to think long and hard about what facial expression you would like to have immortalized on your rolling bag.
The Crest believes it checks all those boxes.You may not be a world-class spy or a superhero, but you can channel both personas with the right piece of luggage.At least, that is what the team behind Crests wants you to believe.The luxury carry-on is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter and claims to “stylishly integrates lightweight and superior strength along with today’s electronics and app features.” This certainly does not look like your average suitcase and it promises not to behave like one either.“E-connected suitcases are not entirely new, with charging, tracking and other gadgets to add connectivity, but we wanted to truly modernize what luggage can be,” Marc Steeb, Crests co-founder, said in a statement.“We offer touch-sensitive control, an LCD screen, self-weighing, external force measurement, apps and more.
AKG’s N60NC Wireless active noise-cancelling headphones are a Bluetooth take on the company’s wired original.I carried the N60NC Wireless for several weeks on airplanes, car rides, and train trips, and they were always small enough to tuck into a backpack pocket or suitcase without taking up any significant room.A 1.2-meter 3.5mm cable with inline remote, a micro-USB charging cable, and a two-prong airline audio adapter round out the travel-friendly accessories.If you clasp the right ear cup naturally, your thumb will land on the power switch almost every time.Shifting your grip counterclockwise, your middle and ring fingers naturally rest upon the volume up/down buttons, with your thumb on the next/previous track toggle.The AKG N60NC Wireless feature Bluetooth 4.0 and support both the AAC and aptX codecs for high quality audio streaming.

Portability is a funny thing.Technically a horse is portable, but you wouldn’t squeeze one into your suitcase for a weekend away, would you?JBL’s new Boombox (£400) is portable as well but at over 5kg and almost 20in long you’d have to be pretty committed to your tunes to carry one around.That size and weight makes sense when you consider it includes four active transducers, two bass radiators and a whopper of a battery - 20,000mAh is good for 24 hours of playback, so you won’t have to worry about taking a charger with you.Might need that horse to help you carry it though.
By making art from garbage, Jen Fuller has a positive impact on the environment while also challenging viewers of her creations to explore new perspectives.At her eponymous Jen Fuller Studios, the owner transforms “everyday objects into experiences.” Fuller works with glass, steel, and trash from the landfill to make art forms that force the viewer to reconcile what the form of the art is with the medium used.She makes art from garbage, with wonderful results.Fuller initially started using traditional steel frames to hold her glass artwork, as she tried to make the perfect structure to frame the piece, but she soon grew tired of how perfect the steel frame had to be.Now, her artwork contains a mixture of glass and steel, so the steel is a component of the piece and more than just a frame.Her current project involves glass leaves and feathers, with the aim to convey “how fragile and transparent we all are.” From a personal standpoint, the project is an exploration of post-industrialism.
The two will co-star in the new season of Top of the LakeSundanceTV has been operating in the shadow of its sister network AMC, but a pair of Emmy nominees are about to change that.Elisabeth Moss and Nicole Kidman—who have already turned in two of the year’s finest TV performances in The Handmaid’s Tale and Big Little Lies, respectively—are doubling down on their stellar work with Top of the Lake: China Girl, a follow-up to the 2013 miniseries about Moss’ troubled detective.Top of the Lake will air on SundanceTV over three consecutive nights—Sunday, Sept. 10 through Tuesday, Sept. 12—giving the network its biggest spotlight ever just a week before both actresses are up for Emmy awards: Moss for best actress in a drama as Handmaid’s Offred; Kidman for best actress in a miniseries as Lies’ Celeste.In the follow-up, Moss’ character Robin is investigating an unidentified Asian girl whose body washes up in a suitcase on Bondi Beach, while Kidman plays the adoptive mother of the daughter that Moss gave up after childbirth.Moss, who has been acting since she was a kid, told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in L.A. that “I’ve had many years of being unemployed.

A truly pocket-sized drone, the Aerix Varius is nimble, cheap and ideal as a training unit for budding flyers, but its weak camera, poor stability and lack of range will seriously limit its appeal to seasoned drone users.Cutting edge drones like the DJI Inspire 2 and Yuneec Typhoon 4K may offer amazing handling and stunning video capture in the air, but they're hardly the most portable of beasts – the Inspire 2 has to be transported in a suitcase-size container, for example.We've seen more mobile examples in recent months – including the Zerotech Dobby – but when it comes to the ultimate in pocket-sized drone flight, you have to go a long way to beat the Aerix Varius.You can control the Varius using your phone's touchscreen display but the remote is better for more precise input.It requires four AAA batteries for both charging and usage (an internal rechargeable power cell would have made much more sense), and it takes around an hour to fully charge the 220mAh battery.Twin sticks allow for accurate control, while an array of buttons control aspects such as take-off, landing and 'return to home' functionality.

‘Twas the beating of his tell-tale heart – or pacemaker in this case – that may land alleged arsonist Ross Compton, of Ohio, in prison.A judge ruled Tuesday that data pertaining to the 59-year-old Compton’s pace-maker would be admissible in court.Compton is charged with aggravated arson and insurance fraud for a September blaze, that caused $400,000 in damages.The alleged perpetrator claims that he was asleep at home during the fire.Compton says he awoke to find his house on fire and took a few moments to pack some clothes and then tossed a suitcase through a window.The Ohio man then retrieved the suitcase and placed it in his car before informing authorities.

After what some might think was an unusually thorough investigation, prosecutors issued an indictment for aggravated arson and insurance fraud in January.It so happened, you see, that authorities had obtained data from Compton's pacemaker.The local Journal-News reports that police obtained the data from Compton's artificial heart implant and asked a cardiologist to examine whether it offered data consistent with Compton's telling of events.Compton has said the fire woke him up, that he packed some belongings into a suitcase, broke a window with his cane and threw the luggage outside.The cardiologist concluded that a comparison of his heart rate, his cardiac rhythms and the demands placed on his pacer were inconsistent with that story.The Butler County Prosecutor's Office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

If you’ve never lost a suitcase, you won’t have experienced the panic and palaver of trying to get it back.Lose it at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 and it could end up everywhere from Mauritius to Moscow.Not, though, if it’s got Tumi’s Global Locator (US$200) packed inside.A pocket-sized puck, the dinky device harbours GPS, GSM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth - all of which are used to deliver real-time location data to the owner’s phone via the iOS or Android app.It’s plane-safe, too, thanks to accelerometer-controlled modes - including a hotel setting to ensure it stays in one place, and a tethered option to prevent wayward wandering.
