If there’s one thing we should all admire about Elon Musk, it’s his talent at helping people part with their hard-earned money. Tesla launched yesterday Cyber whistle, a $ 50 whistle designed with the same angular lines as their upcoming Cybertruck. The company is pleased to announce that the Cyberwhistle is a “premium collectors item” carved from medical grade stainless steel. Unfortunately, not long after Musk tweeted a link to it Sales page, The whistle is sold out, but there is hope that another round will be available at some point in the future. Or, if you really need one of these urgently, you can find pre-orders scalping for around $ 300.

It is apparently the first of many new Nooks in the pipeline.
Barnes and Noble
Given the slow development of e-reader technology, it’s no great surprise that Barnes & Noble last touched the GlowLight four years ago. the Fourth generation model gets a thinner and lighter case, a USB-C port and 32 GB of storage, but that’s about it. Most of the spec list, from the month-long battery life to the 6-inch 300 DPI e-paper display, remains the same. Plus, the $ 150 price point is a little higher than the Kindle Paperwhite in terms of cost, but if you’re looking to dodge Amazon and Kobo, this is probably your best bet. James Daunt, CEO of B&N, also said the company plans to revive the range so keep an eye out for more new Nooks in the coming months.
It’s a tech-heavy e-bike from China.
As Engadget editor-in-chief James Trew writes, e-bikes are usually little more than a bicycle with a motor on its back. However, the Chinese brand Urtopia has decided to make one futuristically mobile with features you would expect in a car. These include an integrated display, fingerprint reader, GPS, 4G, an integrated alarm and mmWave sensors for detecting nearby vehicles.
Unfortunately, James was unable to try some of these features on the prototype he was driving, and lights are only controlled by voice, which is problematic on a busy freeway. Nevertheless, its overall rating was positive, with the low weight, the fun riding style and the additional functions that give a very good bike its shine. It’s worth noting, however, that the Indiegogo pre-order price of $ 2,000 is likely to skyrocket when the hardware goes retail. So if you are eager, dive in soon.
