    This is a video of Aaron 'Wheelz' Fotheringham demonstrating his extreme wheelchairing skills. He does all kinds of stuff: wheelies, backflips, handplants, rail-grinds, you name it. "Shot out of a cannon?" I don't think that's a wheelchair trick. Still, you point me to a ca... / Continue →

    This is Hop, a suitcase that communicates with your smartphone and follows you through the airport. It doesn't hop though, that was just a poor name choice. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about a suitcase with a bunch of electronics inside that make the whole thing look like a... / Continue →
