Fight for the Users with Your Own LEGO TRON: Legacy Light Cycles

· Jeff Gamet · Cool Stuff Found

The TRON light cycles were really cool in the original 1982 movie, and even cooler in 2010’s TRON: Legacy. The only way to ramp up that coolness even more is with LEGO, and that’s exactly what happened. LEGO is releasing its TRON: Legacy Light Cycle kit on March 31st for US$34.99. The kit is a fan-designed LEGO Ideas winner and includes two light cycles, Sam Flynn, Quorra and Rinzler minifigures, and even has the light cycle energy walls. You can order your kit on the LEGO website, or visit a LEGO store this Saturday.

Azio Mechanical Keyboard Marries Retro Looks and Backlit Keys [Update on Mac Support]

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

I spotted the Azio mechanical keyboard as a sponsored post in my Instagram feed last night, and I thought it was super cool. Originally funded on Indiegogo for more than $388,000, the Azio keyboard is shipping now. The one shown in the image below is the Azio Retro Classic BT (for Bluetooth), with a USB version available, too. It’s not quite steampunk, but it’s close, and there are several other styles, too. There are also also different color options for each model.  There are also models with modern key shapes, and some much cheaper entry-level models, but I love this typewriter feel on the Retro Classic. It’s priced at $189 for USB and $219 for Bluetooth. The video is from the original Indiegogo campaign. [2nd Update: Azio told me that the Bluetooth version supports the Mac and comes with replaceable keys. The USB version is Windows only. – Bryan] [3rd Update: I’ve now published an Azio Retro Classic BT Mac review].

· Bryan Chaffin · TMO Deals

ShutterGrip

We have a clever little device for today’s deal, ShutterGrip. It’s a grip that fits on your iPhone and it has a Bluetooth button for triggering your camera. It’s designed to make your iPhone (or Android device, if that’s your thing) easier to hold and balance while you’re snapping pics, and it fits on most devices with or without a case. This is one of those products I’d have made a Cool Stuff Found if we weren’t running it as a deal.

Apple field trip event with iPads

Just as it neglected the Mac, Apple neglected the education market for too long. It’ll be a major challenge to solve its new education problem, and less expensive iPads are only a start.

iPhone X 'Fly Market' Commercial: Song, Dance, Face ID, and Apple Pay

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

Apple has a new spot out, and I love it. It’s called Fly Market, and it features a young man dancing through a street market using Apple Pay and Face ID on his iPhone X to buy clothes and a present for his mom. The song is “Back Pocket” by Vulfpeck, a great tune. This commercial has charisma, and I love the imagery—I think it’s great. I’d love to hear what you think.
