UGEARS mechanical wooden models

What is it?
UGEARS are complex mechanical models made of CNC laser cut plywood that can be assembled without the aid of glue, or any special tools.

Why do I like it?
I like the UGEARS models because they aren’t designed to just sit on a shelf gathering dust, they can actually move. We’ve talked about the UGEARS models before on The Gadgeteer, but the Horse-Mechanoid model is the first one that I’ve actually thought about buying for myself. It would be a fun solo project or as a cool family project.

What is it?
Somewear is a lightweight palm-sized gadget that turns your existing smartphone into a satellite phone that you can use ANYWHERE to send 2 way texts, get weather reports, share your location, and even call for help.

Why do I like it?
I like the Somewear global hotspot because it allows you to communicate anywhere you are in the world because it uses satellite signals instead of cell towers. It’s also built to be tough.

Moasure ONE – The World’s First Motion Measure Tool

What is it?
Moasure ONE is a measuring device that uses motion to calculate distance, angle, volume, and area using the same technology used in rockets.

Why do I like it?
I like the Moasure ONE measuring device because all you need to do is move from one spot to the other to get an accurate measurement even if there are walls and furniture in the way. It can even measure irregular shapes which is always a challenge.
