Turn your Google Home into a portable speaker with this $50 battery

The Google Home speaker is a cool and popular way to get a smart home assistant at an affordable price, but since the speaker is always anticipating voice commands it needs to be constantly connected to power in order to work. Which means you cannot easily carry it around with you, in case you want to use it as a truly portable speaker.
There is a way to change that. A new, $50 battery “base” for the Google Home attaches cleverly to the speaker, so that it can constantly draw power from the battery and with the battery base on, the Home turns …

ION360 U is a portable 360-degree camera & battery case for your iPhone or Galaxy

It’s tough to gather the penetration level of 360-degree cameras on consumers. For starters, they break down to two kinds of camps – dedicated ones, and ones that are attached as an accessory.

Prototype of the unreleased Nvidia Shield Portable 2 gaming tablet found in Canadian pawn shop

Pawn shops are a bit like casinos — 99 percent of the time there’s nothing to be gained from being a patron, but that one other percent is the reason why such establishments exist in the first place. And the following story is a classic take on the old “person unknowingly buys something which turns out to be rare and valuable” story.

You may remember the Nvidia Shield Portable (also known as the Nvidia Shield before it got renamed) as one of the results of the early ’10s smartphone gaming craze that also brought us failures like the Sony Ericsson Xperia …

Runaway portable toilets menace fleeing passerby during Moscow storm

Inclement weather in Moscow on Friday summoned an unexpected public menace: Runaway portable toilets.

Per RT, high winds sent portable toilets skidding across a walkway between the Moscow Museum of Archaeology and the Museum of the Patriotic War in 1812, near by the city’s Red Square. 

Clips of the incident show passersby scattering as bright blue toilets slide in their direction.

Pioneer is launching a new accessory for iPhones and iPads called Rayz Rally. It is the first Lightning-powered portable speaker on the market, and it is intended to serve mainly as an easy-to-use, pocket-size conference call system.

Now, when we say that the Pioneer Rayz Rally is powered by Apple’s Lightning interface, we mean that literally. Instead of having its own battery, the speaker draws power from the device it is connected to, so the user doesn’t have to worry about keeping the accessory charged. Of course, this also means that it will shorten your iPhone’s …
