Everyone likes finding an interesting new place to try, or a new dish to make their go-to. And it's fun and fine and interesting to read the major food magazine's restaurant issue, and keep track of all the exciting new places to check out next time you're in a certain city.
FlyKly is one of the coolest things we've seen on Kickstarter, and its no wonder why they are well over their goal already. This new product could potentially revolutionize the way we commute, while still allowing you to use you bike with traditional power.
It's good to know that we live in a day and age where technology is increasingly making our lives safer. When you're out on the road, OnStar keeps you ready for anything - from turn-by-turn directions to hands-free calling.
