Finally, A Decent Way of Hiding A Rowing Machine In Plain Sight (video)


This clever product may have solved a very important universal question we all ask, 'How do we hide a rowing-machine in plain-sight in the living room.' 
Patrick Saint-Martin's invention, the Ram & Row is simply a stylish end table that folds open into a handy piece of exercise equipment. Optimus Prime would be so proud...

Microsoft's HoloLens Look Very Promising (video)


Microsoft introduced today their latest innovative product and it looks very promising, called HoloLens. It's a wearable that succeeds where Google Glass has failed; by showcasing practical and professional uses of the product rather than focusing how it can be used on a public/consumer level by 'trying' to be 'fashionable'.
The video below hits both professional and consumer applications and looks very promising. Let's hope Microsoft, after their not well received Microsoft Band, hits this one out of the park.
