Remember when you took your driving test and and had an inspector second-guessing your every stop, turn, signal and lane choice? State Farm’s new Driver Feedback app is like having said individual with you all the time. Simply put, it uses your smartphone’s accelerometer and GPS to gauge your acceleration, braking and cornering habits (sound familiar?) and spit out a score, letting you brag to your (parents / significant other / stranger / the family dog) just how safe and secure you are. State Farm claims it doesn’t collect any information and won’t adjust your insurance rates based on your score, which is a bit of a bummer if you ask us — wouldn’t it be nice if you could earn some cash back for perfecting your heel-toe? Either way, you’ll find it for free in the iTunes App Store.

A cardboard cut-out, really? You pasted a 50-inch rectangle of stiffened paper to the wall in order to preview the flatscreen of your dreams within your new Vitsoe shelving system? For shame. A true nerd, nay, a real man would have cast aside those arts and crafts for Panasonic’s new Viera AR Setup Simulator app. Just grab the wall or pedestal AR marker from the printer and place it wherever you hope to showcase that new Panny. Then watch the app augment your reality through the iPhone’s camera. Don’t cost nothin’ but your time, starting with the 60 second video embedded after the break.

 Nike Sportswear Tennis Classic AC Premium NSW Vintage Clay

Nike Sportswear Tennis Classic AC Premium Sneakers

A beautiful sneaker will release from the Nike Sportswear Summer 2011 Collection. The Tennis Classic AC Premium comes in two colorways next month, as part of the NSW Vintage Clay range. It features a canvas upper with matching tonal suede Swoosh. The leather logo tag on the tongue and red line on the mid-sole are nice design details on the otherwise very clean looking low top sneaker. This is already one of our favorite low tops of the season.

The Nike Sportswear Tennis Classic AC Premium releases worldwide on May 14th, 2011.

Check out the second colorway of the sneaker after the jump.

The biggest problem with electric bicycles? All of that pesky pedaling. Thankfully, some of the world's top engineering minds are innovating all sorts of ways to lighten that load. Like Yamaha Motors, whose new PAS CITY-X, PAS CITY-C, and PAS Compact feature amped up batteries that can be charged twice as many times as their predecessors. You'll get somewhere from 10 to 15 miles on a charge, depending on the setting — unfortunately not quite far enough for us to ride one back home to the States. The models will hit their native country on May 20th, at ¥106,800 ($1,299) for the CITY-X and ¥103,800 ($1,262) for the City-C and City-Compact models. Between the improved battery life and all of that artificial intelligence though, these things clearly won’t have much use for us in the near future.

I am a smart traveler but packing my suitcase to stay within the weight limit always intimidates me. Low-cost airlines can be really nasty about excess baggage, so I always check the weight at home. And this as you know can be quite a bother, domestic scale + luggage = trouble! Handy Scale is an easy solution and I urge Samsonite and brigade to try it. The handle has a digital display that indicates the weight of bag when heaved up from it. Just refine this project to make it more durable and I’m sold!

Internet radio’s first legal mixtape library

Far from the days when it was just Pandora and Last.fm competing for internet radio space, today there seem to be as many music streaming sites as there are mashups that helped drive the phenomenon. Whether you regard the remix as a modern artform or scourge of the entertainment industry, hour-plus-long club mixtapes, musical performances like Girl Talk and many other copyright-flaunting forms are here to stay. Enter Dubset, a new online venture not concerned with just promoting the art of the mix, but being the first legal site to feature the work of DJs.

Dubset uses their own digital tool, MixScan, to pick out all the songs in every DJ’s mixtape. When someone listens to a mix in the Dubset library, Dubset logs that play so that artists within the mix can be compensated. Constantly updated by DJs, the free library is available from the website or from an iPhone with an app.

Browse through Dubset’s site and you’ll find the expected DJ profiles, as well as options to follow your favorites and browse through all the mixtapes by “venue” and “genre.” If you’re the type to bootleg favorite club soundtracks on your phone or dig up the obscure file posted in the cloud the next day, you can now legally relive your favorite nights, right from your computer.

ThinkPad aficionados mourning the loss of the X300 series of ultraportable laptops might have something mighty fine to look forward to in the near future. A ThinkPad X1 has shown up at Swiss e-tailer Tell IT systems and other online locations, replete with a 2.5GHz Core i5-2520M CPU, a 160GB SSD, a 13.3-inch Gorilla Glass screen, and as you can see above, a profile thin enough to rival the likes of the Samsung Series 9 and Apple MacBook Air. The X1 is said to be 21.5mm thick, so it doesn’t quite match those crazy cats, but — provided we’re not looking at an extremely elaborate hoax here — it’ll still be the thinnest ThinkPad by far when it launches. One 8GB stick of RAM, an SDXC card reader, and a 1366 x 768 resolution fill out the list of salient specs, while a price of 2,585 CHF ($2,920) sits alongside a promised delivery date of May 20th on Tell IT’s website. You’ll find a couple more images of Lenovo’s purported new bread slicer after the break.

[Thanks, Ivan]

Since the dawn of time, man has dreamed of soaring through the clouds, without invasive TSA security checks and having the guy next to him fall asleep on his shoulder, drooling. FlyNano debuted three new planes at last week's Aero 2011 show in Friedrichshafen, Germany, which it hopes will deliver that very dream. Thanks to a composite carbon fiber bodies and a sub-44 pound drive trains, each weighs less than 154 pounds, hitting the FAA definition for an ultralight vehicle and forgoing the need for a pilot's license. But, while the company is pitching these electric-powered propeller vehicles as flyable straight out of the box, the things are still subject to FAA regulations, so don't expect to go joyriding near a major airport anytime soon — and then there's the “theoretical operational distance” of 40 miles to contend with. Pricing ranges from €25,000 to €27,000 ($36,380 to $39,290) and the company claims that they'll start shipping in three months, plenty of time to get your life insurance premiums paid up.

[Thanks, Jani]
