Product of the Week: G-RO Carry-On Luggage

November 23, 2015
3D Innovations

The holidays are upon us, and for many that means packing up, heading to the airport and hopping on a plane. In honor of the busiest travel day of the year (this week) we are featuring G-RO carry-on luggage, because this one piece of luggage changes everything. The luggage industry has not experienced meaningful innovation in decades, and that has left many travelers feeling frustrated, since their needs have evolved and continue to evolve. It’s no secret that people are traveling more, whether for a weekend getaway, work or to visit family; as a society we are a lot more mobile and we need luggage that can keep up.

G-ROThe inventors behind G-RO travel (a lot), and have built a bag that makes traveling easier, which is no small feat. “We all know travel can be a hassle. The more you do it, the more tiring and frustrating it becomes. To get from here to there, too many of us depend on inferior bags, travel gear and accessories.” 

The innovative design of the G-RO starts with the re-designed wheel. Gone are the dinky wheels that break easily. The G-RO patented wheel design is much larger then we are used to seeing, which means they can accommodate varying terrain, make your bag feel lightersince the center of gravity is shiftedand last longer.

The design for the rest of the carry-on bag is just as functional. The aircraft-grade aluminum handle is longer and stronger. It extends six inches further than the industry standard, which stops at multiple levels for people of all heights. All materials used are built to lastballistic nylon, aerospace grade polymers and top quality YKK nylon zippers. The space inside the bag is designed to be easily accessible and compartmentalized to keep electronics safe. With the optional electronic module, you can turn your carry-on into a mobile workstation. The battery can quickly charge your phone or tablet and its location tracker means that your bag will never be lost.

The extensive time and energy that went into the product development of G-RO is evident throughout the entire design. The extremely successful Kickstarter campaign shows that we are definitely not the only people that believe the smart design of this carry-on makes for an ideal travel companion.

Product of the Week: Easy Drone XL

November 13, 2015
3D Innovations

easydronexlThe popularity of drones has grown immensely over the past several years and advancements are happening at a rapid pace. The Easy Drone XL is the next iteration in the consumer drone market. Through extensive consumer feedback from a previously crowdfunded drone campaign, the inventors behind the Easy Drone XL determined that two features needed to be included this time around, a longer flight time and ability to hold heavier cameras and equipment. Through meticulous product design, this drone has a flight time of 45 minutes on a single battery charge and can lift up to 3 lbs of weight. Both of which are unheard of for the consumer drone market.

The compact design of the Easy Drone XL lets you easily fit it into a travel backpack and weighing a mere 5.2 lbs means that it’s not difficult to pack up and carry. The Easy Drone XL has the same level of functionality of a professional camera drone, but it comes in at a much more friendly price point.

The consumer drone market is still taking shape, and hobbyist seem to receive the most attention, but behind the scenes many industries are embracing drone technology, such as: agriculture, energy, construction, real estate, and film production. Educational institutions are also using drones as a means of introducing STEM subjects. The Easy Drone XL would make a great addition to a business or educational tool for students.

It features industrial scale accuracy and stability, intuitive and versatile controls, all at a highly competitive price.” For our educator friends, imagine the excitement your students would exude when you brought this into the classroom. This would be a hands-on activity where students could study both robotics technology and coding. For our maker friends, this open source  robotic arm has nearly limitless potential to assist with projects. The team behind Dobot are makers themselves, and have really honed in on the wants and needs of the maker community.

 Dobot has far exceeded it’s original funding goal on Kickstarter and it’s easy to see why. The Dobot team has spent time not only developing a (cool) robotic arm, but a robotic arm that can be used by everyone. You do not need a strong technical background to get going with the Dobot. The exceptional product development and design of the Dobot sets it apart from the competition.
