Wacom's Bamboo Spark Puts An Old School Twist On The Graphics Tablet

Wacom’s new Bamboo Spark is great fun to play with. It’s a new take on graphics tablet technology where your pen and paper notes and sketches are converted straight to a digital image on your device. As Gizmodo’s resident cosplayer I went hands-on with the Spark, using it to design one of my planned costumes for next year.

The Samsung Gear S2 Is Tough Mudder Approved

On Saturday, I finished Tough Mudder, a 18-kilometre obstacle-filled stagger through mud and water and dirt. I wore a Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch to track my time and distance; I fully expected it to get utterly destroyed, but it stood up to the punishment of crawling through mud-filled tunnels, and falling into giant dirty pits of water, and being electrocuted.

It’s Tuesday morning, and it’s functioning perfectly — I’m almost disappointed.

What Modern Gadgets Could Learn From Fallout 4's Pip-Boy

Technology advances in a lot of weird and wonderful ways, but it often seems like nothing gets the scientific juices going more than the incredible tech featured in fictional worlds. Whether it’s Back to the Future’s hoverboards, Star Trek’s tricorder, Iron Man’s armour, and pretty much everything from Minority Report.

It may exist in a fictional post-apocalyptic alternate reality, but could modern gadgets learn a thing or two from the irradiated wearable?

I don’t think anyone could have predicted that the jetpack revolution would originate in New Zealand yet, here we are.

Explore Our Cosmic Neighbourhood With This Gorgeous Scientific Calendar

I’ll admit I’m not much for physical calendars — it’s just plain easier to keep track of the days on my computer, where the rest of my life is. But when I saw the 2016 Anaptár calendar, my inner science nerd squeed a little. OK, a lot. It’s hanging on my office door now, and I kinda never want to take it down.
