Dealing with people is usually the last thing anyone wants to do. While some humans are awesome, going out in public with a whole mess of them on a train, plane, or bus is sometimes overwhelming in a bad way. We use music and social media to tune them out, but that doesn’t completely remove the potential for eye contact, or worse…conversation.

If you want to completely tune out of reality and have a long commute home, where you don’t have drive or pay attention to your surroundings in any manner, then these Avegant Glyph Headphones will be a dream come true. These are a video headset that will let you watch movies, play games, and more through this audio and video portable theater. They can connect to just about any smartphone, tablet, drone, or gaming console up to 40,000 feet away, or about 7.5 miles away.

You’ll be able to wear these like normal headphones and use them as such, but obviously the big draw is the display aspect. The cool thing about this device is that it reflects light with over two million micro-mirrors, which replicates natural human eyesight, so you won’t burn out your eyes at such a close range to the screen! Keeping that in mind, these are not cheap at $499, but it will give you some measure of privacy when it feels like you have none.

The $299 LG Tone Studio is the latest around-the-neck Bluetooth wearable speaker that will play nice with Bluetooth audio enabled LG Smart TVs running WebOS, providing you with the experience of surround sound regardless of where you are. What makes the LG Tone Studio so special?There are not just one or up to three, but rather, a quartet of speakers that will truly let you immerse yourself in real 3D Surround Sound whenever you indulge in watching a movie, playing a video game, streaming music or simply talking on the phone.

During moments when personal surround sound is not required, the LG TONE Studio will boast of the legacy TONE tangle free, retractable earbuds that are seen in LG’s range up of Bluetooth headsets such as the LG Tone Ultra, LG Tone Active, LG Tone Infinim, and LG Tone Platinum. Sharing the action is as simple as turning on the Dual Play feature, as you hook up a pair of LG Tone Studio wearable speakers so that you can let everyone else around you enjoy sounds from a movie, playlist or others.

LEOMO reveals new wearable technology for athletes and coaches Tue, 28 Mar 2017 19:00:26 +0000 leomo-type-rLEOMO might not be a name that many of us have heard of before, but they are a developer of innovative sports-based IOT devices. This time around, the TYPE-R has been unveiled, being the first in a whole new category of wearable technologies that has been specially designed in order to assist competitive athletes as well as their respective coaches to further unlock the power of motion analysis.

The TYPE-R is special in a sense where this wearable motion measurement tool will allow athletes to gain valuable insights which could optimize their form, technique, and performance, all the while making sure that these athletes will also be able to avoid injury while aiding the recovery process.

In the past, athlete motion analysis has been limited to sessions from time to time at labs or studios that do not happen to reflect real-world training or race conditions. These will also require elaborate and expensive systems, but LEOMO’s pioneering TYPE-R portable motion analysis device will put all of those on the backburner since both athletes and their coaches are now able to easily and unobtrusively collect data — every single day, regardless of the conditions in which they train and compete in.

The TYPE-R is made up of a sleek handlebar or wrist-mounted touchscreen head unit, and it will boast of features such as GPS tracking, as well as ANT+ connectivity for additional measurement of power, power balance, cadence, and heart rate. The head unit alone will be able to deliver what many high-end bike computers out there a run for their money, and as an added advantage, the TYPE-R will arrive in the form of five discreet rechargeable Bluetooth sensors. Each of these Bluetooth sensors will sport their very own three-axis gyroscope and three-axis accelerometer, allowing one to accurately measure a wearer’s motion as well as form. Meant to be worn on each shoe located right above each knee, and above the sacrum, the TYPE-R’s sensors are meticulously placed to provide the best feedback possible.

This Shiatsu Foot Massager knows you’ve had a long day at work Tue, 28 Mar 2017 18:30:24 +0000 Shiatsu Massager

One long day of work can be enough to make you feel like you’re going crazy. Coming home is a relief, but instead of just plopping in front of the TV and zoning out for a few hours, it might benefit you to set aside time for some self care. This can come in the form of a bath, sipping hot tea, or going on a walk, but if you don’t give yourself a break, the aches and pains you wave away at the end of the day could turn into real health problems.

If you’re standing all day when working, then you need to make sure you take extra precautions when it comes to caring for your feet and the circulation in your legs. While you could bust out some lotion and get to massaging them yourself, it’s nice to use devices like this HappyBody Shiatsu Foot Massager to do all the hard work for you. This will take care of both the top and bottoms of your feet through kneading, air pressure, and vibration massage.

This has low, medium and high intensity settings with 2 different modes so you can work your way up to the big guns or stay with a more gentle massage. This will plug into any standard outlet, and has a 15 minute timer so you don’t fall asleep and end up bruising your feet with too much of a good thing. While it will cost a pretty penny at around $147, it should fit any size foot, and even has a heating function to add a little extra “ahh” to your massage.

CutHut keeps your family safe from projectiles Mon, 27 Mar 2017 18:30:59 +0000 Cuthut

Your fingernails are not, on their own, dirty. It’s all the dirt, bacteria, and germs that get under them that make them disgusting. We want to wash up after shaking hands with someone because we don’t know if they cough into their hands or what all they’ve touched since last cleaning their phalanges, so it makes sense that we don’t really want to be hit with a finger or toenail that’s flying through the air.

While getting this will not prevent the occurrence from happening because you can’t control people, getting the CutHut would at least make your roommates, family members, or friends more aware of their gross habits. This is a little hut for your finger to slide into with a magnifying glass for the see-through window so you can cut your nails and keep the trimmings to yourself. Not only will it keep the clippings from flying all over the place, but it will be a snap to clean up after the job is done.

This is a simple construction that should fit any finger size, but there will always be some exceptions to the rule. This product will cost you $14.98, but it will at least prevent any instances of finding nasty nail bits all over the place. If it’s not a purchase for yourself, hopefully asking the person it is intended for nicely will work before you have to resort to buying a finger-sized room to cut nails in.

JLab Audio reveals a pair of wireless sport earbuds for the active Sun, 26 Mar 2017 13:00:02 +0000 jlab-audioA pair of headphones or earphones are pretty much something that many of us already own — in various forms and guises, of course, that will cater to a myriad of ways in which we use it. Some of us would prefer those puffed up headphones that offer noise cancellation as it comes in handy during those long, trans-Atlantic flights, while others would prefer something that is lightweight and more importantly, wireless, because they like to wear it on their evening runs. JLab Audio has just the perfect thing for active folks, offering the Epic Air True Wireless Sport Earbuds for $149.99 apiece.

This is definitely not the most affordable pair of earbuds in the world, but what makes it unique is the fact that it claims to offer an extremely robust battery life where wireless earbuds are concerned. Sporting a patent-pending antenna earhook that ensures it remains in place all the time, the Epic Air True Wireless Sport Earbuds comes with Bluetooth connectivity so that users will see cutouts and skips as a thing of the past.

Each of these earhooks come with Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX Technology antenna, allowing it to be more versatile since either earbud is able to pick up the connection. Accompanied by a battery life of up to 7 hours, it features a charging case that offers more than 30 hours of battery life. This charging case does more than just juice it up, since it also doubles up as a portable charger for other compatible devices. It even comes with lights that indicate the existing battery level, so that you will always know just how much juice there is left remaining.

To further sweeten the deal, the Epic Air is rated as IP55, which makes it splashproof and perfect for use even when you use it outdoors while it is drizzling lightly. Do you sweat much during your workouts? The Epic Air allows you to rinse it without any problem at all, too.
