Prompt tells you the time without distractions

In the olden days, the a tact watch was all the rage. These watches told the time by buzzing or chiming silently in your pocket, allowing you to tell the time without looking away from your paramour or the King. The complex little timepieces were quite delicate and the complication barely made it past the 17th century.

Now, however, a new watch, the Prompt, replicates the a tact concept with some high tech trappings.

Now you’re playing with power – if you’ve got the Tranzend Ultra Coat

While I can’t speak for all of you, here in Chicago we’re still definitely getting hit with tastes of winter (interspersed with some very spring-like weather). In fact, as I write this, we’ve got a winter storm on the way. That means I’ll have my heavier down coat in play, but if you don’t want the bulk, then something like the Tranzend Ultra Coat may be what you’re looking for.

It’s simple – we make a compact pen out of titanium

When it comes to what you carry with you every day, there are some basics that we’d all agree on – phone and wallet, primarily. Past that, well, opinions diverge. I’ve got a watch with me daily, as well as a pocket knife and handkerchief. Oh, yes, and a pen, because you never know when you might need a quick scribble or two. Currently, I’ve got a Fisher Space Pen (my second, as I lost the first), but there’s this new project, aptly called the Ti Mini Pen, that rather caught my eye.

Zero Down wants you to stay warm with air

You know what time of year it is – it’s time to start thinking about putting on some additional layers when you go outside (at least, in the northern hemisphere). That means we’ll be seeing all sorts of “puffy” jackets and vests showing up. But the Zero Down is a puffy vest unlike any you’ve seen.

Simplifying things with the Mudita Pure Phone

Being as we’re a tech news and reviews site – and you’re reading it – it’s safe to say that we’re all fans of mobile phones in some capacity. Once upon a time, they were utilitarian, but now they can be so many things – our camera, our jukebox, and our game system, just to name a few. But with all of that usefulness can come distractions. “Oh, I’ll just check my mail” and next thing you know, you went down some social media rabbit hole. But we need to remain connected to our loved ones, our friends, our co-workers. So, what’s the solution? Well, the new Mudita Pure Phone may just be the answer.

Teracube is offering up an unheard-of 4 year warranty on their phones

I know, I know, we’ve been very heavy on phones as of late, between all of the iPhone coverage, and some other Android-related things. However, it just feels like there’s a lot of energy in that segment of the tech world, and I’m going to keep covering the stuff I find interesting. One of the latest I ran across over on Kickstarter is the Teracube.

Tesmo wants to give your laptop a little lift

Seems like ergonomics were all the rage. We had wrist wrists, mouse pads with gel built in, and all manner of things. For our keyboards, along with the split design, we’ve long had the ability to flip out little legs to adjust the typing angle. If you’re relying on the keyboard built into your latop, though, you were stuck. At least, until the Tesmo was thought up.

Now Kickstarting: Moonrakers

Make no mistake – while we here at KN dig tech and gadgets, there’s something about the tactile pleasure (and table talk) of a good ol’ tabletop game. Of course, with the technology known as crowdfunding, we can find out there are a lot more options out there. One of the latest to ping my radar screen is Moonrakers.
