Recon Instruments made sporty smart glasses you might actually want. Originally designed for skiing, the Jet shoots video and photos, uses maps and navigation, tracks your speed and altitude, and more, all while unpaired from your phone.
Designed with modular hardware, the Jet houses the battery on one side of the glasses and the display, touchpad, and internals in a unit on the other. And while the $699 price tag isn't cheap, that's frankly the Jet's biggest drawback.
Twitter just added official #StarWars emoji! It's the perfect way to spruce up your angry tweets about lightsaber design.

The Alcatel Onetouch is a fitness tracker posing as a smartwatch. It's an in-between wearable device that doesn't have have the platform support of Apple or Google, nor the fitness tracking chops of Fitbit, Jawbone, and the like. And while it looks good, that will be a hard sell for $149.99.
The electric cars raced north along Biscayne Boulevard, then around four turns that sent them under the 395 overpass. Our reporter @sokane1 was so close that his camera was pelted by bits of rubber that used to belong to Michelin and bits of gravel that used to belong to the City of Miami. Overall, the inaugural season of Formula E is off to a hell of a start.
The #AppleWatch went on sale early this morning — just after we broke the news that Google is close to making Android Wear work on the iPhone. If you're planning to buy a smartwatch, will you go Apple, Android, or wait for the next generation of devices?
And now for its biggest compromise: the new MacBook has a new port, called USB Type-C. It's also the only port besides the headphone jack. You use it for power and for connecting your phone, monitor, printer, camera, or whatever else you might have. And because it's a brand new kind of plug, you will need adapters for all of those things.
The new MacBook’s Force Touch Trackpad feels like an impossible object. It has tiny pads that detect pressure, and then an electromagnet inside that simulates the feel of a click when you press down. So when the laptop is off, you feel nothing. When it's on, click. It's all in service of thinness — and some clever software features.
Apple's new 12-inch laptop is simply called the MacBook. It's almost impossibly thin, measuring just over 13mm at its thickest point. It's even more impossibly light, weighing just over two pounds. That's about a full pound less than the 13-inch MacBook Air and a third of a pound less than the 11-inch Air.
You are really, really going to want this laptop, even though it's relatively expensive, starting at $1,299.
The new Flir FX is a home monitoring camera that can also be a GoPro-like action camera, dash cam for your car, or an outdoor security system — all depending on what kind of case you’ve inserted it into. With 1080p resolution and a 160-degree viewing angle, it comes equipped with 802.11 b/g/n home Wi-Fi to stream video up into the cloud, a speaker and microphone for two-way conversations, and infrared LEDs that help it see about 30 feet in the dark. The FX starts at $199 and is currently accepting pre-orders.
The Surface 3 has the same silver magnesium casing, a similar thickness, and the smaller roughly 10-inch display you’d expect from Microsoft’s basic Surface offering. It will start at just $499, and it's available to pre-order today with devices shipping on May 5th in the US / Canada and May 7th internationally.
Microsoft is back with a brand new Surface 3 tablet, but this time things are a little different. While the original Surface RT and Surface 2 tablets didn’t let you run traditional Windows applications, Microsoft is ditching ARM processors and Windows RT to bring a full version of Windows 8.1 to its new Surface 3 with an Intel Atom chip.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith Inspired by Film (that's the car's actual full name) takes the standard model and adds a number of bespoke options that were... well... inspired by film, including a "Spirit of Ecstasy" hood ornament. #NYIAS
