Inside Game 5 of the 2014 NBA Finals
The 2014 NBA Finals might be over (go Spurs), but you can relive some of the glory by perusing a few of our court-side photos. With camera in hand, Edgar Alvarez tours the AT&T Center for a behind-the-scenes look at the epic sports event.
Airdog drone serves as your loyal action sports cameraman
Why film your own sports action video when a UAV could do it for you? If funded on Kickstarter, the GoPro-equipped Airdog drone could be your very own aerial cameraman. All you have to do is initiate its flight from a wrist-mounted controller.
Earin’s tiny wireless earphones recharge while they’re in your pocket
Unlike Beats’ new Powerbeats2, Earin’s wireless buds are completely cable-free — and they recharge inside your pocket. For a $170 pledge on Kickstarter, you can snag a pair sometime in January 2015, assuming the target is met.
France is the first team to benefit from goal-line tech at the World Cup
Remember when FIFA announced it would incorporate new goal-line tech into the 2014 World Cup? Well, it paid off. It was used to confirm a controversial shot from France’s Karim Benzema that bounced off the far post, landing just inside the goal.
