The Ubuntu Edge ($830) isn't trying to be the next smartphone, it's trying to be the first Superphone. Just connect a monitor and the Ubuntu Edge will turn into an Ubuntu PC with Desk OS and access to all files allowing you to seamlessly transition between mobile and office. Ubuntu has thought through every detail and no effort or technology is wasted on any feature. Some features include the 4.5 inch screen which is the ideal size for your hand, a sapphire crystal screen that is so hard only a diamond can scratch it, a minimum of 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. With the addition of the dual-LTE chip you'll be able to get 4G access anywhere. Check out the other features on their Indiegogo campaign.

When I was younger I always thought we'd have flying cars by now. Well it looks like we might be getting a little closer to that reality. The Helicycle ($395,000) by Hammacher is able to convert from a motorcycle to a gyrocopter in just 10 minutes. It's a gyrocopter because the rotors are passive and provide lift from the vehicles forward movement. It features a 230-hp, four-cylinder engine that can reach a maximum airspeed of 112 mph and has a 220-mile range. To get airborne it requires 540' of runway and to land only about 100'. If you're planning to get one make sure you have the required sports pilot certificate before you take off.
If you love to camp, there is no reason why you have to rough it. The Dub Box Camper Trailer ($TBA) features vintage style with all the amenities of home. The camper easily sits four adults, has a double bed, and custom kitchenette. What's great about the Dub Box is that you can have it your way. You can customize your colors, upholstery, cupboards, flooring, blinds and much more. Additional features include a 110 volt hook up, insulation, toilet, and the Dub box is very light weight so you can tow it even with a small car.
Pressy ($17) has just crushed their Kickstarter campaign. In a day they were able to hit their $40,000 target. So exactly what is Pressy? Basically it's a button you put into the headphone jack of your android device and it allows you to perform commands with a click or series of clicks. For example take a photo by clicking twice, turn your light on and off with a click, or hold a long click to come in and out of silent mode. And those of just the actions that come pre-programmed. Once you get the hang of the app you'll be able to do so much more. Check out pictures of the device after the break.(more…)
