Two years ago at the Treasure Island Music Festival, I was dazzled by the sight of glowing, otherworldly jellyfish floating above the crowd during the evening performances. I recently learned that those beautiful jellyfish are an art project called OMG Jellyfish by Patti Lord, Rob Lord (of Winamp fame), and their collaborators. The inflatable jellyfish are made from ripstop nylon, Tyvec, high-power white LEDs, and custom electronics. They fold up into a small travel bag and can be flying in less than 5 minutes. (To clarify, they don't "fly" like a kite but rather are hoisted aloft on collapsible poles.) Now, the creators are hoping to turn OMG Jellyfish into a product. They've launched a Kickstarter to fund further development. A pledge of $125 gets you one of the first OMG Jellyfish delivered to your door before summer's end. OMG Jellyfish

You travel around a lot. It might be that jet set life from New York to LA to London to Tokyo, or it might be back and forth from the coffee shop to the office, or from the kitchen to the couch. Any which way, you’re mobile and that’s the way to live. When you […]
It’s 2016 and we like our technology really small. Our phones fit in our pockets, our remotes are lighter than ever, and even our cars seem to be shrinking. So your new drone shouldn’t be an exception. This Axis VIDIUS Drone is 21% off right now and it’s so little, your biggest problem won’t be […]
