Lily Next-Gen drone ups the ante http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171018/lily-nextgen-drone-ups-ante/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171018/lily-nextgen-drone-ups-ante/#comments Wed, 18 Oct 2017 12:00:37 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268463 lily-next-gen-droneDrones are all the rage these days, with so many different companies coming up with their very own take on what a drone should be like, and what it is capable of. While there are many pretenders to the throne, there are only a few companies which are able to deliver as promised. Lily is one of the more reliable brands, having launched the Lily Next-Gen. What makes the Lily Next-Gen stand out from its predecessors? For instance, this is a drone in the spirit of the Lily flying camera, where it is deemed to be a fun and simple selfie drone for extremely active people.

Sporting a point-and-shoot camera that is able to capture video in 4K Ultra HD or 1080p resolution, you will be able to ensure that precious memories are always stored in high resolution for editing later on. All of the video and still shots are shot using a Sony IMX 214 camera, where you will be able to enjoy 13MP stills in addition to the high resolution video. There are also multiple one-touch functions such as flight operations and media sharing to make it all the easier to use, while the Lily Next-Gen comes with up to 18 minutes of flight time which is extremely impressive considering the rather small form factor of the drone.

The Lily Next-Gen drone is also smart enough to capture follow-me video selfies thanks to object tracking software that can follow the user or another person. Apart from that, it is able to perform non-stop 360⁰ orbits around single point, letting you get that perfect Matrix shot done. For those who want to push the boundaries always, the Lily Next-Gen can be flown up to 3,280 feet from its take-off point, and is also equally adept at flying indoors courtesy of its optic flow and ultrasonic positioning technology that helps it to avoid obstacles below it. To further ensure that it does not get lost when outdoors, the Lily Next-Gen sports geofencing and automatic return to its take-off point. Expect to fork out $699 for the Lily Next-Gen Pro.

Studio Stick portable recording studio for smartphones http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/studio-stick-portable-recording-studio-smartphones/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/studio-stick-portable-recording-studio-smartphones/#comments Tue, 17 Oct 2017 13:00:04 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268460 studio-stickThe modern day smartphone is indeed an indispensable tool for anyone and everyone, where it functions as our primary camera, our navigation device, our portable media player, our fitness tracker, and for some, a simple microphone to take down audio notes as and when required. All of these in addition to it being a primary communications device to keep us connected to the rest of the world. However, no one has really tried to turn the smartphone into a portable recording studio, not until now with the introduction of the Studio Stick.

The Studio Stick is touted to be the world’s first portable recording studio for smartphones which will enable users to record high quality songs/audio regardless of where they are, and at a far lower cost compared to renting a professional studio. Being a Kickstarter project, the Studio Stick will first need to raise the necessary amount of funds before it will become reality. The ultimate objective is to democratize the studio recording experience, so that artists can gain access to a professional recording studio without having to blow their budget.

Arriving in a tiny, 20-inch container which can open and expand to an adjustable height, the Studio Stick will feature a microphone, pop filter, mic stand, reflective filter, and phone holder once it is opened. This will then allow artists to be able to record high quality songs just about anywhere and at any time, making it a great tool to have around when inspiration hits. With the Studio Stick app, artists can also record, mix, and master songs, as though they were right smack in a traditional recording studio. Not only that, you can also proceed to sell or purchase beats directly from other users through the apps marketplace, and once the songs are completed, feel free to distribute them to major online retailers such as iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify among others via the Studio Stick App. Place a pre-order for the Studio Stick on Kickstarter now for $274 a pop.

MSI Vortex G25 is a small form factor gaming beast http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/msi-vortex-g25-small-form-factor-gaming-beast/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/msi-vortex-g25-small-form-factor-gaming-beast/#comments Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:00:42 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268455 vortex-g25When it comes to gaming, one very important element that most people would take into consideration first would be the kind of hardware that the gaming PC packs underneath the hood. The case itself might look really, really pretty, but if it does not have any high performance parts within, it would amount to nothing, either. MSI knows this, which is why they have come up with the Vortex G25 gaming desktop that will not only be able to deliver the level of performance that hardcore gamers crave, it will also look good without taking up too much space on your desk.

The Vortex G25 is not a conventional gaming desktop, courtesy of its small form factor setup. Taking it apart, it will be powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, with the ability to handle up to a GTX 1070 graphics card, all within a 2.5-liter chassis. Now that is really compact, no matter which angle you are looking from. Apart from that, the Vortex G25 gaming desktop will also boast of MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan technology that will feature dual blade fans that work in tandem with eight heatpipes. This setup will be able to ensure proper cooling of the CPU and GPU, which in turn provides a 30% performance gain compared to the previous generation of processors.

One of the main reasons for developing the Vortex G25 is to have it function as a gateway for portable and convenient VR experiences. The front panel itself features a power jack which can help to power connected VR headsets, while there is also an HDMI port and a couple of USB 3.0 ports in terms of connectivity. MSI’s very own Nahimic VR software will be able to optimize performance and virtual surround sound so that the whole virtual reality experience is even more immersive.

Expect the MSI Vortex G25 to retail for $1,999 and $1,499 for the Vortex G25-022US and the Vortex G25-023US, respectively.

G-Bike is the first carry-on style electric bicycle in the world http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171016/gbike-carryon-style-electric-bicycle-world/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171016/gbike-carryon-style-electric-bicycle-world/#comments Mon, 16 Oct 2017 20:00:28 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268451 g-bikeWhen it comes to bicycles to get around for the urban commuter, there are many different kinds of models to choose from. Many of us would settle for a regular two-wheeler with a fair number of gears in order to help us tackle the trickier uphill segments along the route. However, regular sized bicycles are normally not allowed to be carried on board trains, making end-to-end connectivity a wee bit more challenging. Portable bicycles or foldable ones, on the other hand, do not really offer the same kind of “kick” as a regular sized bicycle. Enter GreenWheel’s G-Bike, the first carry-on style electric bicycle in the world.

The G-Bike will boast of a sturdy, secure frame with a trio of folding points at the back wheel, mid body, and base of the handlebar stem. This special design will enable the bike to neatly collapse down to its carrier form, where you can then bring it with you right behind like an obedient puppy, or a luggage carry-on.

As for its technical specifications, they are rather impressive. Boasting of a long lasting battery life of up to 55 miles in range (this will also vary depending on the steepness of the slopes involved, among others), we love the incorporation of puncture resistant tires that feature an integrated puncture guard in order to deliver all-terrain access. The 36V 250W motor is able to provide significant torque and speed to handle any kind of slope, while the battery can be removed to recharge, taking a mere 4 hours to do so. There is also a high quality LCD display that showcases important details such as speed, distance, and battery life remaining, while Shimano Nexus Gears delivers easy riding with the feel of a 3-speed bike.

Expect the G-Bike to retail for $1,799 apiece if you are interested in going green in style.

Beat Lips is the first headphone pillow of its kind http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171016/beat-lips-headphone-pillow-kind/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171016/beat-lips-headphone-pillow-kind/#comments Mon, 16 Oct 2017 19:00:27 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268450 beatlips-headphone-pillowWhen we talk about pillows, most of the time we are looking at something that is comfortable and soft, offering the right kind of support for our heads while we rest or get some shuteye. However, some of us who prefer to have a private listening experience before dozing off would put on a pair of headphones, and sleeping with headphones on tends to be a very uncomfortable experience no matter how soft the pillow in question is. Enter the first ever headphone pillow of its kind in the market, the Beat Lips.

Other than the extremely unique form factor of a pair of sultry lips making up the Beat Lips pillow (which is why it is named that way), this pillow has been specially designed in such a manner to form to any set of headphones providing comfort while resting on your side or in any other comfortable position. It is made possible through the elimination of pressure points that are created from leaning on headphones against a surface. In other words, the next time you have a long haul flight with plenty of connections in between, the Beat Lips pillow is perfect to make traveling or lounging with your headphones on a far more relaxing experience.

The Beat Lips headphone pillows will feature a gap in the middle that enables the speaker portion on any headphone to reside within it. Filled with the right amount of microbeads that deliver enough height, you can be sure that your headphones will not touch a surface, allowing the speaker portion of a headphone to virtually float in the air in order to eliminate pressure on your head. Not only that, the microbeads will also help to form to any user’s facial features and neck, ensuring the right kind of support is provided. It is also versatile enough to be an arm pillow, baby feeder, or a foot cushion.

Logitech MX ERGO wireless trackball rolls back the years http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171013/logitech-mx-ergo-wireless-trackball-rolls-years/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171013/logitech-mx-ergo-wireless-trackball-rolls-years/#comments Fri, 13 Oct 2017 12:00:07 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268341 logitech-mx-ergoThe humble trackball has lost the battle, so to speak, against the mouse when it comes to a pointing peripheral on a desktop. In fact, the trackball was also eventually phased out from notebooks, with IBM’s pointing stick making a last stand before the touchpad finally prevailed over the rest of its competitors. Here is a blast from the past with an update from the 21st century: the Logitech MX ERGO wireless trackball.

What makes the Logitech MX ERGO wireless trackball special? For starters, it does not come with any kind of wire or cable as well, which means there is no need to hook it up to your notebook or workstation, and that makes the entire workspace look less cluttered. This wireless trackball will set a new standard when it comes to navigation comfort and precision, being the first of its kind in close to 10 years. The Logitech MX ERGO delivers a personalized level of comfort with a unique adjustable hinge and precision tracking, offering multi-device connectivity for trackball enthusiasts as well as those who would like to enjoy an alternative compared to the regular mouse and touchpad.

It is said that the Logitech MX ERGO is able to reduce muscular strain by up to 20% compared to using a standard mouse. The adjustable hinge enables the user to increase the angle from 0 to 20 degrees, and this in turn improves wrist posture and pronation. With a carefully sculpted shape, your hand will enjoy full palm and finger support, where the soft rubber on the top will deliver a good and comfortable grip that is suitable for long hours of work.

Apart from that, the Logitech MX ERGO also brings with it the latest tracking technology so that it is faster and more precise, being able to instantly change your cursor speed and accuracy for optimal control with the press of a button. The presence of an LED light will illuminate when precision mode is activated, although do not expect this $99.99 wireless trackball to end up replacing your gaming mouse.

Sonos One voice-controlled smart speaker http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171010/sonos-voicecontrolled-smart-speaker/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171010/sonos-voicecontrolled-smart-speaker/#comments Tue, 10 Oct 2017 13:00:14 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268249 sonos-oneWhen it comes to audio products, Sonos is one of the names that would often crop up in a conversation. In fact, Sonos continues down the warpath with the introduction of the Sonos One, which is a totally new, voice-controlled smart speaker that is more than capable of supporting multiple voice services. Of course, it does not forget its primary reason for existence: to be able to play back your favorite tunes for all and sundry to listen to and enjoy, podcasts, audiobooks, as well as other kinds of sonic content from over 80 streaming services. The rich sound is well accompanied by a thoughtful design which will fade nicely into the background, where the asking price of $199 a pop for the Sonos One as it is released globally this October 24th is rather reasonable.

When the Sonos One is launched, music fans living in the US, UK, and Germany are able to interact with Amazon Alexa in order to gain control of the Sonos One right out of the box, now how about that? It even comes with full voice support for Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, SiriusXM, and TuneIn. Alexa voice control for Spotify on Sonos One has been set in stone for arrival not too long after its launch. Apart from that, you will be able to enjoy voice transport controls such as pause, skip, volume up and down, not to mention asking what’s playing that will be available for all other music services under the support umbrella of Sonos. In other words, Sonos One will empower owners to make full use of voice in order to control their slew of Sonos home sound systems.

Support for music is not the only great thing about the Sonos One: owners can also enjoy everything else that has made Alexa so enjoyable, including hearing about the weather, set timers, listen to news and traffic reports, not to mention the latest sports scores. Regular cloud updates make it all the smarter, too.
