• Combat Photobombers Everywhere

    You're on an idyllic vacation in a faraway land, setting up for a beautiful landscape shot with a prominent relic in the background, but the street is congested with locals and other tourists.

    Your friends set-up for the pose of a lifetime - it's the first time you've seen each other in months - maybe years, but the photo is ruined by some obnoxious passer-by who decides to insert themselves into your picture.

    It's happened to most of us before, but it's a problem that just might have a solution in the Remove app by Scalado.

    Designed for mobile phones supporting the Android OS, Remove is slated to be introduced to the public at the 2012 Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, beginning February 27th, but we were able to get a sneak peek at this handy little utility.

    It works by taking multiple shots of the same picture and merging the still elements while removing the moving elements. It's not a perfect app, as it requires you to hold your phone/camera very still to get the perfect

  • The World’s Most Advanced Ski Goggles

    Flying down the mountain has never been so precise.

    Zeal Optics has combined blue tooth technology, GPS tracking and of course their backcountry knowledge to design the most useful goggles we've ever seen, and they're just getting started.

    With the Z3 goggle you can monitor your speed, altitude, air temperature and receive phone call and text notices from your Android phone though a small screen in the corner of the goggles. With the integrated GPS you can find yourself and your friends on the mountain, which is perfect when you inevitably separated on a run, especially on mountains with spotty cell service.

    But the Z3 is just the beginning. Next year Zeal Optics is releasing the iON goggles, which builds on what they've achieved with the Z3 by adding an HD camera, with a 170-degree wide-angle lens, and an 8 megapixel still camera.

    All of the controls for the goggles are managed through a blue tooth enabled remote that you can wear on your wrist like a watch and allows you to easily

    It's fitting that the newest 3D printer from Brooklyn's MakerBot Industries is called the Replicator. When we visited their studio, right there in the front of the shop was a MakerBot... built by a Makerbot.

    And it wasn't even built by them. All of the machine designs that built that machine are made available to the public through the company's open source platform, Thingiverse, so a dedicated fan was able to make it themselves using a MakerBot and ended up trading it to the company for another MakerBot.

    The Replicator, the second machine the company has released, was just announced in January and it will be interesting to see what kind of designs the open source MakerBot community will be able to come up with and share. The new Replicator added a second color to the machine and makes larger prints, now up to the size of a loaf of bread.

    MakerBot isn't the first 3D manufacturer, but with the Replicator going for $1,750, they are the first to set the price point for your average
