This flexible camera pinpoints problems at the source

The human eye is a powerful thing, but it's not so great at seeing in the dark or around tight spaces, which is partially why most of us struggle with unplugging drains, cleaning under the fridge, and other hard-to-reach jobs. This 1080p HD Waterproof WiFi Wireless Endoscopic Camera, however, gives you the flexibility necessary to get to where your work is, and it's available in the Boing Boing store for $39.99.

Similar to the cameras doctors use to peek inside patients, this device gives you a generous three meters of cable to snake into tight spaces to stream footage straight to your smartphone via WiFi. Its IP68 waterproof rating makes it ideal for working in damp areas like drains, while the eight powerful LEDs let you easily see in dark spaces.

Build new empires in the latest release in Sid Meier's Civilization franchise

It's not common that a game series survives as long as Sid Meier's Civilization has. But, with a premise focused on creating an empire that stands the test of time, it seems appropriate that one of strategy gaming's most venerable series continues to stay relevant more than 20 years after its birth. Winner of 15 E3 Awards, including Best PC Game and Best Strategy Game, Sid Meier's Civilization VI is the series' latest installment, and it still finds ways to bring players back to the strategy gaming genre it helped build over two decades ago.

Right now, you can try Sid Meier's Civilization VI and its new Rise and Fall expansion pack on sale today with the Sid Meier's Civilization VI Bundle for Mac. It's available to Boing Boing readers for $56.99.

You Against the World

For the uninitiated, Sid Meier's Civilization challenges players to take on history's greatest leaders and build their own supreme empire from the ground up. Aspiring rulers need to balance military, cultural, and scientific development to stay competitive while delicately navigating the world of diplomacy to ensure they can reach their goals unhindered.

From military conquest to scientific discovery, there are several different ways to achieve victory in Sid Meier's Civilization, but none of them come easily. Players need to rely on their wits, cunning, and tactical know-how to stay one step ahead of rival leaders while pushing their civilizations to the top.

What's New

While the core gameplay has remained mostly the same among recent iterations, the series' newest edition changes a few things up with two parallel tech trees and an innovative city system. Read the rest
