In all fairness, to call this watch by the same moniker as any of the previous smart watches is an insult. The Agent Smartwatch is a waterproof smart watch that pairs with your iPhone, Android or Windows Phone. Using Bluetooth 4.0, it alerts you of the weather, incoming calls and messages, allows you to change music or check in on a social network, as well as keeping track of your phone if you happen to leave it someplace. The design is simple and conveys a level of confidence and class. It charges wirelessly, using Qi charging technology. This project has launched very recently on Kickstarter and has already tripled it’s goal. I already reserved mine, so go get yours while you still can.
Here at the Krisp, we don’t discriminate. Sony launched a preemptive attack yesterday on their Youtube Channel, in preparation for today’s next generation Xbox unveiling. Go check out the short teaser video.
About 5 years ago, Microsoft took the stage to announce what would become a revolution in console gaming. With Sony having announced the PS4 not long ago, it comes as no surprise that Microsoft gathered today to unveil their new gaming console. The Xbox One (even though this is the third Xbox by my count) will come with a redesigned UI, cloud storage capabilities, and a whole new resume of features. Microsoft wants this to be the center of your living room. They want you to watch live television through it, movies through it, use apps through it and ultimately, game through it. The demo did a flawless job pointing out the responsiveness of the voice commands, as well as the improvements in the hardware. This Xbox is up to par with most high end gaming PC’s, which says a lot about how far Microsoft has come from the original Xbox. Kinect has become an integral part of the gaming experience and has also received a major improvement in its functionality and performance. Pound for pound, Microsoft brought its A game, and has thoroughly impressed us all.
This custom SUV by Hennessey Performance is the mother of all sport utility vehicles. This crossbreed of an automobile is designed for people who want the off-road capabilities of a Raptor, but want the look and feel of an SUV. It will include a 411hp engine with an available upgrade to 600hp, so AMG G-Wagon owners beware. The VelociRaptor will be built on a Ford F-150 Raptor base and will start at $149,000, with only 30 units produced a year.
If you just look around the piers in lower Manhattan, you would find New York’s oldest yet most prestigious vessel, America 2.0. She is an elegant 105 foot, Schooner rigged sailboat. Her design is influenced by the style of the late 1800s but incorporates technology of the 21st century, thus connecting the past and present beauty, history, and art of sailing in New York Harbor. A day sail on this vessel is perfect for family outings, dates, and entertaining guests from out of town offering various views of New York City and its surrounding attractions at different times of the day while also handing out complimentary beers, sodas, & water which make this 2 hr ride something to remember. Tickets can be booked for day sails, sunset sails, city lights/night sail or brunch for an affordable rate. However if your pocket is deep enough you can also sail romantically and alone with your partner in a late night rendezvous, but they do also have a morimoto (sushi) and sake sail which would be great for a date as well as a good time out with friends.
Oh yes, the wheels are off the floor. The Isle of Man TT Race in Ireland is unlike anything else. Boasting some of the most talented riders the world has to offer, they compete in what looks like a dogfight (you’ll click that if you know whats best) around the 26 mile island. The competition is fierce; the average speed is between 120-130 mph through bends and between every other rider that is an obstacle. Try not to blink, I promise you’d miss more than your mouth could water at a sight so brilliant.
Sorry Patron, but it looks like you’ll be taking the back seat, indefinitely. Milagro Tequila defines the word smooth while either sipping slow, or need I say, “taking it to the head” with a shot glass. Grab some orange juice, add a dash of simple syrup and mix it with the tequila of miracles (for those who don’t know, Milagro = Miracle), and you have the perfect summer cocktail… or you could do
body shots with some lime and salt. Either way, enjoy and drink responsibly.
Invented by the Inventist, (yes, you read that correctly) the Hovertrax provides a new form of efficient transportation. The technology is strikingly similar to that of a Segway, where the rider controls the vehicle by leaning and shifting body weight. Simply stand on the Hovertrax and lean forward to move. The Hovertrax is still available for preorder on its Kickstarter page.
If you’re in the market for a luxury sedan, look no further than the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The recently unveiled S-Class boasts features that put any other luxury sedan to shame. Technologically speaking, it has more electronics than a Best Buy showroom. The dashboard comes adorned with two, high resolution 12.3 inch displays, as well as the integrated command center for a Burmester 3-D surround sound system. Special measures have been taken to mute almost all engine and ambient noise, making your listening experience almost that of noise canceling headphones. In response to the rising demand for Mercedes Benz vehicles in China, the backseat experience has been completely revamped to accommodate for the Chinese preference of being chauffeured. The new S-Class also features road scanning technology that scans the road ahead and alerts you of any obstacles, such as pedestrians and animals, as well as accommodating suspension to respond to incoming potholes or bumps. Expect to see the S550 on the American roads in September of this year.
If you were thinking of trading your stereo system for an expensive Bluetooth one, think again.
