The Sobro smart side table wants to improve your bedside experience

Hate cluttering up your nightstand with tons of cords and accessories? Sobro wants to eliminate all that extra junk so you can rest better.

Confession: my night stand is covered with clutter. It’s usually home to my water bottle, my iPhone (complete with annoying charging cord), my headphones, a small Sony speaker I got for Christmas, My MacBook charging cord, and two small lamps so I can find my way around in the middle of the night without tripping and knocking my teeth out or something. And that’s just on top! Underneath, I’ve got a whole mess of other stuff I like to keep within my reach while I’m sleeping or lounging.

I say all that to say that I know I’m definitely not the only one who struggles to find a way to keep all my essentials nearby in a tidy, manageable way. If you’re in the same boat as me (and pretty much everyone else I know), you may want to consider adding the Sobro Smart Side Table to your bedroom (or living room, or whatever room) setup. It offers wireless ch…

The most physical games for Nintendo Switch

Wanna get your body moving with some Switch games? Check these titles out.

Since its very inception, the utilization of motion controls in games has been divisive for gamers. When the implementation of motion controls feel like an afterthought to a game, it’s hard to argue that there is any sort of added value or fun. However, when the use of motion feels like it was woven into the fabric of a game’s development from the beginning, it can actually serve to deepen the experience.

I have found that games which include motion controls effectively can be a blast to play at family gatherings and parties. If you’re looking for some Nintendo Switch games to get your friends and family moving, then take a look at these titles.

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 may not have you jumping around the room and waving your arms around in an odd example of semaphore, but it does actually utilize the technology pretty effectively. Aiming with your Joy-Con can be smooth, fast …

This is our first look at Fitbit’s next smartwatch

It’ll have a lower price, smaller body, and no GPS.

Following disappointing sales of the Fitbit Ionic, CEO James Park teased that the company is working on a ”mass appeal smartwatch”. Now, just about a day later, we have multiple renders showcasing what that smartwatch will look like.

From Wareable:

According to one source familiar with the company’s plans, who asked to remain anonymous, Fitbit was aware that the Ionic didn’t have mass market appeal. ”It wants this to be something that will appeal to a larger, more general smartwatch audience,” they told us.

Specifically, Fitbit wants something that appeals more to the female market, they said; the Ionic has a large, unattractive design and only comes in one size. Sources tell Wareable that the new watch is smaller than the Ionic, bringing it closer to the size of the first Blaze.

Just like the Ionic, this new smartwatch will run the new Fitbit OS platform that allows for app support, notifications, and more in addition …

SanDisk’s 400GB microSD card drops down to $190 for the first time ever

Large card, small price.

SanDisk is a trusted brand when it comes to SD cards, and the company is pushing the limits. Its largest capacity card, the 400GB Ultra MicroSD, is now down to $189.99. This is $40 lower than it normally sells for.

It’s a Class 10 card with transfer speeds of up to 100MB/s, which would allow you to move up to 1,200 images in just 60 seconds. You can use this in your smartphone, tablet, action camera, and more. Not all devices will recognize the large capacity of this card, so you may want to consider grabbing the 128GB option for $37.99, or the 200GB one or $62.99.

You can’t go wrong with any capacity SanDisk card, so why not add 400GB to your Nintendo Switch so you never have to worry about running out of space to carry around all of your digital games and more.

B&H has matched this pricing, and is also running a deal on a bunch of other SanDisk products, so be sure to check those out before the sale ends.

Twitter user shares ways Apple Park caters to visitors with disabilities

A guest visiting Apple Park says that the campus is ”a demonstration of an accessible building when cost is no object.”

Though Apple is known for the wide array of accessibility options in iOS, one individual has confirmed that the company’s commitment to the principle extends far beyond the iPhone screen. On a trip to Apple Park’s visitor center, Twitter user @xarph composed a thread of tweets detailing nine ways that Apple designed the location to cater to blind individuals who use canes, partially-sighted individuals, and those who use wheelchairs, saying ”Basically, go to the Apple Park Visitor’s Center if you want to see how to design a building for maximum disabled access when cost is no object.”

@xarph began by describing the advantages of the motion-activated exterior doors that serve as the entrance to the center:

Every exterior door has motion-activated auto-open triggers that can trigger on both wheelchair and foot height, placed away from the door. Usually the butto…
