Get the secret to parallel parking like a pro: A smart license plate with a hidden backup camera



Heads up: All products featured here are selected by Mashable’s commerce team and meet our rigorous standards for awesomeness. If you buy something, Mashable may earn an affiliate commission.

Even if you’re a great driver, you have to admit that parallel parking can be really hard. There’s no way to know for sure how close your back bumper is to the car behind you just by eyeballing it, but what else can you do? Buy a new car with a backup camera? Ask your friend to get out and look? That’s ridiculous, dude.

But that’s exactly what makes the FenSens Smart License Plate so cool. It looks like a normal license plate mount, but it’s secretly a backup sensor that connects right to your smartphone and notifies you when you’re too close to any given object. The sleek black device fits any car, and never draws attention to itself. Read more…

The BauBax travel jacket already made a splash on Kickstarter back in 2015. It reached its $20,000 goal in less than five hours and raised more than $9.2 million by the time the campaign had ended.

It’s hard to believe that a jacket like this could be made better, but that’s just what the BauBax 2.0 is setting out to do by seeking additional funding — where else — on Kickstarter. Read more…

Finding alien life won't cause chaos and panic, according to scientists



Thanks to science fiction, there’s a general view that finding alien life would cause the public to break out in a social upheaval. According to scientists, that’s not quite the case.

Michael Varnum, an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Arizona State University, conducted a study to see just how we would react to the discovery of alien life. The results concluded that as long as the discovery is of a primitive form and not a super intelligent being in a spaceship, we would react positively to it.  Read more…
