Portable Minimalist Ergonomic Laptop Stand ... In A Tube
More and more people change their desktop computers and go for portable notebooks everyday! Actually, with all the power available in modern laptops, I can barely imagine why would you go for a desktop … unless, of course, you work in those niches that require huge amounts of processing resources like video/audio editing, construction planning and architecture, 3D animation, gaming, etc …

Laptops are the perfect compromise – light enough to allow you to work from everywhere while packing just enough power to do your light office work, surf the net, check Facebook and Youtube or enjoy some light gaming. But there’s a hidden danger that comes packed in every laptop! And that danger is called “ergonomic working position” or better said “not ergonomic working position“!

And this is where gadgets like the 3-in-1 Laptop Stand Tube come into the game to help you enjoy the increased portability of a notebook while still keeping a healthy, ergonomic working posture. The Stand Up Stand is made of anodized aluminum and weights only 7.2oz (that’s 204.12gr) – just a tad heavier than the iPhone in your pocket, has an ingenious modular design which can raise your laptop to the perfect working height, transform it into a stand-up working desk as well as help you better interact and type on tablets and big smartphones. When not in use, the Stand Up Laptop Stand can be easily dismantled and stored inside it’s main component – the Tube – for easy transportation.

The 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand in a Tube is in project mode at Kickstarter and will set you back a reasonable $49 US. The project funding cap was already reached, which means the stand will safely be delivered in April 2015.

41 Coolest Strollers That You Can Actually Buy
With so many choices around, getting the best stroller for your kid it’s not an easy job! Especially when you start searching Google for “Best Strollers” or “Coolest Strollers” and the most displayed results include almost exclusively concept strollers and custom made buggies which can not be purchased online or in brick-and-mortar stores!

This was one of the main reasons why we took the time to scrape the net, find the coolest strollers that can actually be bought and list them all on one page – apart the machine gun stroller in the main pic which was too cool to leave aside … sorry!!! Is our list the ultimate cool strollers list on the net? Well, probably not … we mainly listed strollers we found cool, strollers with good reviews and positive feedback from parents, strollers we would buy if we were in the situation of looking for a mean to transport our kids in style!!

While we asked for feedback and input from 7 parents to build this list, we are sure we missed some cool models – so feel free to submit (via the comments at the end of the page) any cool stroller we might have forgotten.

BONUS – While we were researching and asking feedback to find the best strollers around, we also got some suggestions for cool baby guide books and we listed them at the end of the post. Make sure you check them out in the post … we know how hard it is to get good parenting resources …

NEEO - The Smart Remote Designed To Control Everything Under Your Roof

With all technological advances in the past years, our homes become more and more intelligent every day!
But most of these gadgets that harness the power of artificial intelligence and allow us to manage our homes easier and make them more fun, also need to be controlled in a way or another, so a new niche seems to configure for hardware and software manufacturer.

Until now, each individual home automation device used to have its own controller (either an individual remote, an iPhone or Android app or even phone and SMS switches), just like 25 years ago when every gadget in our living room had it’s own remote! Remember that? But times changed and the universal remote (read Logitech Harmony) was invented, ready to allow you to control all your gadgets from one main unit.

Well, history repeats, isn’t it? The NEEO Smart Remote is designed to do for your home what the Harmony did for your living-room – aggregate all controllers under one main unit and help you easier manage all your home automation devices.

The NEEO system comes with two units – the brain and the controller. The brain is a solid aluminum & acrylic glass unit which is able to connect with over 30,000 gadgets via IR (infrared) – the technology used in all classic remote controllers, Bluetooth, WiFi, 6LowPAN, ZigBee, Thread and Z-Wave protocols – basically most remote controller technologies available on the market. Additionally, a learning feature can teach the remote new commands in case the device you want to hook up it’s not in the internal database.

The Controller unit of the NEEO comes with a high definition display designed to help you control all the devices connected to the Brain, an array of sensors which can identify users and load personal profiles, activate and deactivate parental control as well as SOS activation in case you misplace your remote. The NEEO system can also be fully controlled by dedicated iPhone and Android apps.

The NEEO Thinking Remote is in project stage at Kickstarter (already reached it’s funding cap) and you can secure a kit for $219. The delivery is set for May 2015.
