After speaking with my friends over at Wearable Today, I was inspired to design a Qi charging dock for the Moto 360 smartwatch. I worked on it on and off and finally came up with a sweet 3D Printable Moto 360 dock. Because why pay $40 for an extra charger? When you can 3D print your own and buy a cheap Qi charging module for it, all for under $20.
When Amazon first introduced the Kindle Touch a few years ago, I mused that if Apple created an e-reader, that would be it. It's a statement that becomes more true with every iteration now. The paperwhite added the best backlight on an e-reader bar none, and the voyage automates that backlight based on the ambient light in your surroundings. All in the slimmest sleekest package I've seen in an e-reader that was this good, ever.

That streaming box was pretty great for a while. I was happy with my little Roku. That is until Apple released the second generation Apple TV.
Apple Pay seems to be the new hot thing ever since it came out in October. Mobile payments are said to be up in the time since its debut, banks are chomping at the bit to sing its praises, and somewhere Steve Jobs is looking down approvingly at Tim Cook. It's a fun novelty that I admit, I jumped on the bandwagon early for, but is it really all its cracked up to be? After using it for a few months in my day to day routine, here are my thoughts.
The Ridge Wallet was originally a kickstarter project that raised $266,622 on the original Kickstarter campaign, and then an additional $126,873 on a second kickstarter campaign for the 2.0 revision. I recently got my hands on The Ridge 2.0 and used it to replace an old leather bifold. I haven't looked back since.
