For the second year in a row, TCL is making the best TV you can get for under $1,000. The company used 2017’s excellent P-Series 4K HDR TV as the foundation for the renamed 6-Series. It runs Roku’s simple, straightforward software and delivers a viewing experience that’s truly dazzling for the price. TCL also addressed the cheap look of last year’s TV by upgrading from glossy black plastic bezels to a brushed metal trim. The 6-Series comes in 55-inch ($650) and 65-inch ($1,000) sizes. 📷: @holowatyrose

The Boring Company recently shipped their Not-a-Flamethrower, which sold out in less than a week; only 20,000 were made, so it’s something of a collectors’ item. But besides hanging it on your wall, what on earth do you do with the thing? In today's Instagram Story, Verge Science editor Liz Lopatto cooks steak and s’mores with the collectable, putting the Not-A-Flamethrower through its paces. What would you cook with Not-a-Flamethrower? 📸 @Vjeranp

The D8000 headphones from Japan’s Final cost nearly $4,000 and use planar magnetic technology to deliver truly audiophile sound.​ Each ear cup is luxuriously spacious and padded out with a pleasant soft foam.​Also, the bass extension of these headphones is scarcely believable.​ ​However, the majestic sound is undermined by a stupidly heavy design and a stratospheric price​. 📷: @vladsavov

The new Oppo Find X takes a unique approach to fit a big screen in a small frame: it's hidden the entire camera assembly in a motorized, slide-up assembly that pops up and disappears as necessary. Its 6.4-inch OLED display stretches all the way to the top of the phone and curves on the sides, much like Samsung's S9. The Find X is available in China starting today and will be coming to the US and Europe later this year. For our complete first look, check out the link in our bio.

There’s a creative user base out there who want the complete package in a laptop: portability, power, a stylus, and a touchscreen. HP’s Spectre x360 15-inch is the latest laptop attempting to fulfill those needs.​ This year’s model starts at $1,369 and has the aesthetic to match the price. The Spectre x360 is a powerful laptop on the interior as well. Follow the link in our bio for the full review. 📷: @holowatyrose

Sony is back with another try at wireless earbuds and a more specific focus: sports. The $180 WF-SP700N are clearly designed for runners and gymgoers. They’re water / sweat resistant, and they fit securely in your ears without budging even the slightest bit, no matter how vigorous the exercise. They’ve got a rumbling, bass-heavy sound and digital noise cancellation. ​​📷:@chriswelch #earbuds #sony #sound #music #fitness #tech

Neurotechnology startup CTRL-Labs hopes to create the first mass-market brain-computer interface using an electrode-studded wristband. When the electrodes are touching skin, they measure electrical pulses along the neurons in the wearer's arm.​ These superlong cells are transmitting orders from the brain to the muscles, so they’re signaling the user's intentions before he or she has moved or even when they don’t move at all.​ This then makes the virtual hand on a computer screen move according to how the user wants to move. While this tech is still in its early stages, there's a place for it in the near future. 📷: @holowatyrose #science #tech #technews

You can get an indoor home security camera from a bunch of companies, such as Amazon, Nest, Logitech, Netgear, and even startups like Lighthouse. But not all cameras are the same, and some have lots of intelligent features, while others keep it simple. Follow the link in our bio to find the best option for your home. 📷: @vjeranp

After years of rumors and prototypes, an in-display fingerprint scanner is finally shipping in a major phone from a major company. The Vivo X21 represents the first mainstream test run of the technology, using a sensor component from Goodix. It’s not a prototype or a limited edition; it’s just a phone. And as it happens, it works pretty well. 📷: @345triangle

The world's fastest supercomputer is back in America. Last week, the US Department of Energy and IBM unveiled Summit, America’s latest supercomputer, which is expected to bring the title of the world’s most powerful computer back to America from China​​. Taking up 5,600 square-feet of floor space and weighing in at over 340 tons — which is more than a commercial aircraft — Summit is a truly massive system that would easily fill two tennis courts.​ Summit will allow researchers to apply machine learning to areas like high-energy physics and human health​.

The HTC U12 Plus is the latest Android flagship smartphone from Taiwan’s leading phone maker. It runs on a Snapdragon 845 processor, features dual cameras on both the front and back, and is available to buy now. It has a stunning transparent back that highlights the mechanics. Also, the phone comes in multiple colors. 📷: @holowatyrose

The Boring Company’s Not-A-Flamethrower is here and just as dangerously fun as one would expect. A permit isn't needed to own one as the Not-A Flamethrower isn't powerful enough to shoot flames past 10 feet. It's also powered by a propane tank unlike military-grade flamethrowers which typically use liquid fuel to unleash yards of fire. It's incredibly exciting to use and is well-designed. But what do you actually do with a flamethrower?
