But when we spoke to the company's representatives here at CES, it seems that there's a bigger target to aim for. Polar is currently working on...

Thermal cameras are expensive, which is why they're mostly used by firefighters, contractors and psychotic aliens. Fortunately, that's all about to change thanks to the FLIR One, which is an iPhone case with a tiny thermal camera stuck on the back. All you have to do is strap your iPhone 5 or 5s i...

Not a Chromebox then, nor a Chromebook, but a Chromebase, consisting of a 21.5-inch screen connected to a curved hinge. The 1080p IPS LCD was more than adequate for a session of browsing, ty...

Qi is one of the most popular wireless charging standards out there, but it's certainly not perfect -- and its limitations have been a burden that its competitors like the A4WP Rezence have taken advantage of. One of its most pressing issues is the fact that it only supports inductive charging, wh...

We'll forgive you if you've never heard of Canon's Selphy printer. It's an adorable little $100 printer that, in its latest iteration, has an especially zietgeist-y new feature: square sticker printing. "For the Instagram crowd," a Canon rep laughingly explained as we checked out the Selphy CP910 ...
