Funny how every set of “wireless” earbuds is actually connected by a wire. Not these. Earin earbuds are two independent buds that are small and stealth because unlike bulkier buds they don’t have a microphone or a light or sensors. Instead they use unique, compact driver technology and feature a case that doubles as the recharging unit. A wildly popular Kickstarter project.
Smart everything. Here’s a new smart home security system called Sentri that enables you to do things like geofence your home, see live video, audio feed, monitor ambient conditions, view trends and stats, set up alerts for “irregularities” at home, control other devices, and even personalize its appearance for your decor.
Inside this 2.5 gallon per-minute rainfall-style showerhead is a bluetooth speaker that lets you stream music, news, and calls in the shower. The water-resistant speaker pops out for easy recharging and/or use outside of the shower.
With its built-in scanner, Scribble lets you capture the colors of the world around you & transfer them directly to paper or a mobile device. Scribble Ink uses RGB to blend & duplicate up to 100K colors for writing & drawing on paper, while the Scribble Stylus does the same with its Scribble+ app that’s iOS, Android, and Windows compatible.
Could Amazon build a better phone for their most engaged customers? It kinda looks that way. They launched Fire Phone today. It’s a 3D smartphone with features like gesture control scrolling & an image stabilizing 13-megapixel camera. But really, it’s a powerful little consumption device optimized for watching movies & TV shows, reading books, and buying more stuff at Amazon.
Denon’s HEOS is a wireless multi-zone home sound system that offers both wi-fi music play and streaming from all the top online & cloud services as well as playback from hard drive or legacy sources. With speakers available in 3 different sizes, the HEOS app lets you choose the room where you want music and queue-up the songs from anywhere in the house.
Compact & portable, the Mira wireless speaker from Braven features a multi-purpose hook/stand that let’s you drop it or hang it anywhere you need a soundtrack. It’s also got a IPX5 water-resistance rating, so bring it along to the beach or swimming pool, no worries.
At first you might think, “who needs that?” but a waterproof Kindle actually makes sense. A large percentage of the male population read books only on vacation; also a time that traditionally involves swimming pools, beaches and lots of drinking. And waterproof to 200-feet means you can also use it as a frisbee in the pool when Jim Butcher’s Dresden drivel is putting you to sleep.
If you want the Zeus, this 370-inch mega TV that features 65 billion colors & 4K resolution, you better take some measurements; the 26 X 16-foot display is about the size of a regulation soccer goal. If you’ve got the space, installation should be easy, the British brand will deliver it to you in their custom-built Hummer.
