In an age where every game you want to play can easily be downloaded onto your phone within seconds, we have forgotten what it feels like to play games on handheld devices that you actually had to beg your parents to buy for you, i.e. Gameboys, Yak Baks and Bop-It.

Although the look may resemble that of Lavar Burton's in Star Trek, the yet-to-be-released Google Glass only represents the most state-of -art technology. Glass is an incredible innovation—wearable technology in glasses form—that finally puts mankind in the same league as that of Star Trek and The Jetsons; Google Glass is the future. It is not currently available for consumers, but there are a handful currently being “tested” by “Google Explorers." Such explorers are individuals who applied for the privilege on the Google Glass website, and received a preliminary product. Its advanced technology has it priced at about $1,500, but its current “testers” are discovering that futurity can have some kinks.
It only took 30 years, but finally, Samsung has developed a coveted technology to the likes of those used by the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Yes, it’s real: “the telecommunicator,” but Samsung has given it more aesthetic appeal. The new Galaxy Note 3 comes newly equipped with Galaxy Gear, or a “smart watch,” that allows users of the new phone to utilize multiple options all at the convenience of their wrists. This accessory sets Samsung a step ahead in the cell phone market. Never before have we come so close to living the life of a super hero through an Android operating system!
In the smartphone war, Samsung has the largest market share, but Apple is prom king, due to genius marketing campaigns and sleek designs. Samsung's latest tactical move is the relase of the Galaxy Round, the world's first curved smartphone. The curvature is made possible by a technological breakthrough, however, its practical function isn't immediately apparent. At the very least, it is attention-grabbing, and raises the question about what the curved screen could be used for. Another cool feature is the Roll Effect, which allows users to check battery life, time, and missed calls by tipping the phone towards themselves at an angle when the home screen is off.
Lego blocks are a fond nostalgic memory for all. When we were young, we would head to the Lego box and make the most complicated structures of the tiny fingers. And even more thrilling than the Lego blocks themselves were the Lego people: the yellow skinned, stiff-legged figures became either gymnasts or mad scientists, depending where you imagination leads. And now, despite the fact that we are well into our adulthood, there may be a legitimate reason to play with them again: Legos could be the next step after Google Calendar, to help people organize their time into manageable, bite-sized chunks.
The world of 3D printing is on the rise as it transforms and intersects with burgeoning technology. Customization of everyday objects has come to the forefront as one the most promising and useful aspects of it all. The newest addition to the 3D family is the Blizzident tooth-cleaning system created through both custom scanning and printing.
Getting a Blizzident toothbrush is accessible via dentist. You make an appointment to get an impression of your teeth. The impression is then sent to a dental lab, where they digitize the results, and upload/print your toothbrush. Blizzident retails at $300 and lasts for up to a year, which is 10 times more than a normal toothbrush.
Waiting in lines can be a hassle, but for Apple’s new Iphone 5s and 5c people are willing to grin and bear it. Eager fans waiting outside Apple stores suggested that the unveiling was the highest record launch in iPhone history. The high-end iPhone 5s and the cheaper iPhone 5c went on sale in the U.S., China and nine other territories, culminating to 9 million sells by the end of its opening weekend.
Ever find yourself stumped, trying to recall the details of a dream you just awoke from? In most cases, by the time your feet hit the ground, you've forgotten what your dream entailed; vague details might make their way to your memories surface, but for the most part, you remain perplexed, and feeling a bit empty.
However, now with the development of Shadow, a new app recently launched on Kickstarter, you may not only be able to keep track of your dreams, but use the data to chart the landscape of your subconscious. While it's still too early to tell for certain, the data that Shadow gathers while we dream may provide greater insight to our habits and behavior. And as an added bonus, the app includes an alarm clock that gradually lifts the user from deep (hypopompic) sleep, disposing the need of the standard alarm clocks that monotonously, and brazenly beep their way into our peaceful calm.
