The things you most need in life are usually the items you lose the most. Car keys. Cell phone. TV remote. How many hours of your life have you spent upending the whole house hunting? Well, this new universal remote from Griffin technology will cut the search time by at least one third. Instead of a regular TV remote, use your iPhone to control practically every remote-driven electronic device in the house.
Because it’s hollow, the natural resonance of bamboo amplifies music. This unique property makes bamboo an ideal material for making an all-natural, no-power-needed iPod or iPhone amplifier. So that’s exactly what Brooklyn-based artist/inventor, Anatoliy Omelchenko, did. Now you can buy his crafty, eco-friendly creation online and pump up the volume.
Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page—the greatest guitar players in rock-n-roll history all plugged into a giant wall of Marshall amps to rock the crowd. Now, the iconic brand makes headphones bringing that huge sound straight into your earholes. The Major is a classic over-the-ear ’phone with the power to melt your brain like a Hendrix solo.
We’re always featuring new digital cameras. Mainly, because a new model comes out every other day and they’re all good for about one drop off the edge of the table. Replacement is inevitable. This updated Lumix GF3 is small yet powerful, bridging the gap between pocket-size convenience and pro SLR results. Just try not to drop it.
Anthony Weiner’s photos would’ve been way better if he had this versatile, collapsible monopod in his free hand. Stick it in the ground or hold it in your hand for self-portraits. With its ball head—the monopod not the congressman—you can shoot in any direction from vertical to horizontal. Way better than the portrait-in-the-mirror approach.
In the not-too-distant future, we’ll all be able to wave a magic wand and watch anything we want at any time. Until then, we can dance merrily around the flat screen about these new TiVo systems. What’s the big deal? Well, now you can record four different programs at one time. You probably won’t get around to watching any of them, but that’s beside the point.
Back in the day, burglars always went first for the TV. But now, if a robber broke in and found this massive 3D flatscreen, they’d be shit out of luck. They’d need a pair of technicians from the electronics store to unplug it and a small forklift to get it out through the slider. At 93-inches across, it would barely fit into the standard burglar van, so they’d also need a special vehicle. Basically, yeah, this TV is un-stealable.
What makes Q Speakers so special? Well, they give you wood. Oak, maple or walnut to be specific. Their minimalist docking speaker systems boast a super-clean design with big sound. A 90-Watt tri-amped, Class D amp delivers the thump, while internal mid-high speakers spit full-spectrum stereo sound.
We all want to perform a little better in bed. This “un-alarm” clock might help. It not only measures & tracks your sleep patterns, it syncs with your iPhone to wake you up in a new way. No shocking alarm bells, the Lark wristband sensor just vibrates gently to stir you awake. It also lets your bedmate go right on sleeping.
Like everyone, we’re still waiting to find out when Sony’s PS Vita will hit stores. But here’s what we can share about this new handheld addiction device: there will be two models, the “wi-fi only” version will be $250 and the slightly badder-ass 3G model will be $300. Sony has been bragging for months about the touch interactivity & motion that supposedly smokes the 3DS. When the release date is announced, we’ll be camped out in line at the big box store. See you there.
