Having kids is perhaps one of the most beautiful gifts that God or nature has blessed every life-form on this planet with.

Smart Swimming Goggles comes with an interactive display screen and 3D camera

We are gradually moving into a progressive age, where machines and devices are also judged by their smartness. However, this degree of ‘smartness’ should have more to do with how the contraption harmonizes with human convenience, rather than its intrinsic level of artificial intelligence. Well, the Smart Swimming Goggles certainly abides by this dictum with its myriad of advanced yet convenient features, which goes well beyond its functionality as just a simple eye cover.

Designer contrives a weight reducing smart gear for postal workers

It may come as a bit of a shocker, but on a daily average a postal worker handles around a whopping 250 kgs of mail. To put things into perspective, that is actually more than four times the average human mass (which stands at 62 kgs). And, of course because of the manual handling of such high weight ratios, many of our ever friendly postmen go through serious health issues like carpal tunnel syndromes. In this regard, design student Doris Feurstein has contrived her very own innovative solution for postmen, in the form an exclusive body gear for lessening the overall weight...

ELEV8TE and DV8 Series: Hats and Visor collection that stream music without use of headsets

One of the biggest nuisances one can encounter is someone who thinks he thinks he or she is so cool that they put in headphones at super high volume and then decide to go out on the road.

And the people at RESON8TE along with Swarm have decided to come up with a unique solution that allows...
