OK, I admit it — I’m partial to pretty colors. This bright hanging lamp sends regular light downward, but it sends colorful illumination upwards, which you can interactively control via an app. It belongs in a room with Razer’s Project Ariana.
Lenovo’s long-running ThinkPad lineup is getting some worthwhile new additions at this year’s CES. Both new ThinkPad computers include a dazzling HDR display, a built-in physical webcam cover, and far-field microphones for speaking to Amazon’s Alexa and Microsoft’s Cortana. The two laptops also run on Intel’s newest eighth-generation processors.
This is one of the most awesome gadgets I’ve seen for people who find themselves writing a lot; especially in the context of writing during a meeting or presentation. You can not only record audio, but the pen will convert your writing to digital format so you can load it on a computer. Then, when you want to go to a certain point in your recorded conversation, you simply select one of the words from your notes and you’ll be linked up with that exact spot in your conversation. Pretty handy! (No pun intended.) // Source
Yes, in most cases. Your wireless carrier may charge a fee for activating your iPhone on its network. If your current service plan does not include a data plan, you will need to change to a service plan that does. Corporate, business, and prepaid service plans are not eligible. If you have any questions, you can speak to a Specialist at the Apple Store or chat now.
Skully Technologies launched an ill-fated Indiegogo campaign in 2016, raising nearly $2.5 million in preorders for a motorcycle helmet with AR features, and then folding. Backers of that campaign will soon receive the Fenix AR — a helmet with a rear-view camera that displays a 180-degree view on a transparent display. It supports turn-by-turn navigation and (when connected to a phone via Bluetooth) voice commands, making phone calls and playing music.
If you have ever had to spontaneously run into a meeting or had a sudden encounter with someone that just needed to be caught on camera, now you can instantly and secretively record that conversation for later review.
On the education side, Blipblox was one of the more interesting items on floor. A synth designed for three to eight-year-old kids, the Blipblox has arrow paths on top connecting all the buttons to show the synth’s signal chain. The idea is to get children interested in synthesis basics early on. But, there’s no iconography on the Blipblox itself to hint at what the buttons do, so it’s hard to say how much kids will really learn as opposed to just mashing buttons. The company told me that if kids want to learn more, they can read the manual that comes with it, but that seems to defeat the product’s purpose.
When you’re going on a long journey and your passengers are using their phones/tablets, it can be helpful to be able to charge them en-route. However, with a charging port popped into the 12V DC socket (or 24V if you’re in a larger vehicle), if you have more than one passenger it can lead to arguments over whose gadget is more in need of a boost. The Olixar Triple USB Super Fast Car Charger can eliminate those car-journey squabbles. It comes with three USB ports – including two that are strong enough to charge tablets (2.1amps each) – the other is a 1 amp port for Smartphones. It’s worth noting the 1 amp port is on top (with the two 2.1 amp ports sitting below) as it’s not clear on the actual device.
Everyone likes taking notes differently. Typing them on a computer and saving in Evernote or Google Docs is the most convenient since you can access it even if you forget your laptop at home. However, there’s something about writing down your words in your handwriting, and having the freedom to add doodles and side notes without having to change the font.
Pioneer just released their latest line of car gadgets – the Pioneer Nex CarPlay Receiver! As the name states, the Nex acts as a receiver, connects to your iPhone via Apple’s CarPlay connection and gives access to all your smartphone’s on-board and cloud-based features.
One to use on home soil rather than abroad (where you’d be at the mercy of roaming charges), this will keep the whole family entertained on long car journeys without using up your internet data. EE’s Buzzard 2 provides in-car 4G wi-fi – which up to 10 devices can connect to. The Buzzard 2 comes with either 6GB or 24GB of data (the latter currently costs £99 on Amazon). Before you set off on your journey, you’ll need to register the sim, but then you’re good to go. Useful if you want to keep the kids busy watching an online film or use your smartphone as a satnav.
With its advanced data security and spacious capacity, SanDisk’s newest flash drive, the Cruzer Fit, offers a secure and easy way to transfer files. Consistent with SanDisk’s user-friendly reputation, the Cruzer Fit has a conveniently low-profile design. It is small enough to fit onto a key ring or in a pocket, and connects comfortably to laptops, desktops, tablets, car audio USB ports, televisions, and more. Plus, it comes in a variety of capacities ranging from 4GB to 64GB, to ensure you have the space you need.
Imagine the possibilities of the video recording capabilities of an iPhone 3GS and the MiLi Pico Projector II working together; anywhere the lens can see is your playground, and the MiLi Pico Projector II is your toy.
If there was one particular superpower that I would love to have, it would be the ability to be able to decipher and understand all languages. It makes communication far easier, and it will certainly be a bridge among different people groups and tribes. While the science fiction utopia of having a form of AI (Artificial Intelligence) handle all of our different languages and dialect nuances remains just that, the AIcorrect Translator might be on to something with its debut at the recently concluded CES 2018.
Sometimes you have to film things that you can’t actually look at and this is where our awesome spy sunglasses with bilateral cameras are useful. The cameras are built into the arms of the glasses filming your peripheral vision – sideways in other words.
