ELECTRIC BEAMER

 

BMW continues to demonstrate its commitment to quality and sustainability with the new C Evolution electric scooter. Conceived as a modern solution to the next generation of urban mobility, the battery can be completely charged, either at a regular household socket or a charging station in less than three hours. If you like struggling to find a parking spot, pouring money down your gas tank or sitting in traffic, this is not the vehicle for you.  BMW-Motorrad.de

 

 

SUN TIME

 

While sunbathing can be quite pleasurable and give you a healthy glow, too much of it is detrimental to the skin. With the JUNE bracelet from Netatmo, you can be sure to always get just the right amount of vitamin D without overexposing yourself to harmful UV rays. This fashionable bracelet measures your sun exposure throughout the day and communicates with your smartphone, letting you know when it’s time to get in the shade.  Netatmo.com  

 

PHONE PHOTOGRAPHY

 

For the many smartphone photographers out there who have felt limited by their handheld device, the Sony DSC-QX100 Smartphone Attachable Lens-Style Camera is the answer. The world’s first pro-grade lens and sensor combo easily attaches to you iOS or Android smartphone to capture DSLR-quality pics and HD video with the utmost convenience.  Sony.com
