The mesh-capable Portal Wi-Fi routers will do its bit to prevent such setbacks from happening through the implementation of key technologies. Both high bandwidth gaming and streaming applications would not be too much of a trouble for the Portal router.

OtterBox Venture Coolers target holidaymakers with a sense of adventure Sat, 09 Dec 2017 19:00:01 +0000 venturecoolerNormally when we think of the brand name OtterBox, most of the time we would have sweet memories of their seemingly indestructible smartphone cases that not only work great while providing a layer of protection for your spanking new handset, they also look good, too.

Lifeprint delivers a new photo and video printer Tue, 05 Dec 2017 19:00:49 +0000 lifeprintPolaroid looks like they might have some competition on their hands when it comes to extremely small and portable printers that work best with smartphones. Lifeprint has come up with an all-new 3” x 4.5” Wi-Fi and Bluetooth printer which does both photos and videos, where it is capable of creating and printing out Augmented Reality Hyperphotos from your camera roll, Facebook, Instagram and Saved Snaps, among others, in order to make them come to life as though it is magic. This new printer is available exclusively on as well as Apple stores worldwide.

Perfectly timed to launch before the holidays where people love to create and share special memories, this new Lifeprint printer will come with a free application that makes it extremely easy to edit, print, and share photos and videos with family, friends, and basically anyone else, regardless of where they are. Augmented Reality will enable your videos to come to life right there and then, while the Wi-Fi capability lets you print from anywhere in the world with larger prints being recommended for a better quality and experience. Who would have thought that videos could be printed out?

As part of the marketing plan to show just how Lifeprint is going to change the way we share our everyday memories, even the packaging itself will come to life with Augmented Reality technology. In other words, you will be able to watch a video about the product right on the box.

TAP showcases new wearable keyboard and mouse Mon, 04 Dec 2017 19:00:23 +0000 tapThe keyboard and mouse have certainly come a long way from their early days, where they were just pieces of plastic and other material which were crude to use. Then came along the ergonomic keyboard which was supposedly able to help alleviate all kinds of repetitive stress injuries among users, especially cubicle drones who do nothing but hammer against the keyboard all day long. Wireless technology came along, followed by wearable technology. It is TAP that has decided to tap into the world of the wearable keyboard and mouse, pardon the pun.

This all new wearable keyboard and mouse is certainly fashionable, and it does lend an air of Tom Cruise’s Minority Report interface although we have yet to arrive at such level of technology. Pre-orders for the TAP wearable keyboard and mouse are already being taken, with an asking price of $129.99 a pop.

It will operate sans wires, which makes perfect sense as no one would like to be tethered to something and looking ridiculous. Using Bluetooth connectivity, this wireless wearable keyboard will be able to transform just about anything that you touch into a surface on which you can type on. I would say that this is a natural evolution of the holographic keyboard that we have seen more than a decade ago, except that this one is far more versatile in its use since there is no “base” device to speak of. Being a one-handed keyboard, there is a learning curve to adapt to, but modern day technology fans should not find it to be an issue. It will alter the paradigm for controlling and texting to mobile devices such as wearable screens, AR/VR, smartwatches, accessibility devices and pro tablets such as Microsoft’s Surface Pro.

Definitely one of the cooler wirelses keyboards that we have seen in a while, that is for sure!

ION360 U 360-degree camera with wireless charging sleeve capability Fri, 01 Dec 2017 12:00:37 +0000 ion360-uA protective case for a smartphone has been deemed to be a prerequisite for quite some time now, apart from a protective screen, of course. Well, ConvenientPower Systems has come up with something different this time around: an industry-first, even, in the form of the wireless charging design for the 360-degree smartphone camera that is known as the ION360 U. This is an all-new wireless charging accessory which is truly unique, offering an innovative solution for existing power-hungry social media, photo and video applications.

Everyone loves capturing a lovely photo in the first place, and sharing it on social media would naturally be the next logical step. Well, the ION360 U certainly brings things to a whole new level, by offering simultaneous wireless charging of both the smartphone and 360 smartphone-connected camera, it offers new dimensions concerning immersive mobile video and wireless charging convenience.

Camille Tang, President, ConvenientPower Systems, noted, “By implementing wireless charging into the smartphone battery case, the functionality of the smartphone wireless charging option is extended when the phone and the 360-degree camera accessory are connected. The growth of power-hungry applications like experience-sharing on social media, and immersive 360 video create the need to always be charged, wirelessly, and while on the go. This new wireless charging design for the smartphone camera meets this need.”

Right now, ION360 U’s wireless charging photo and video live streaming smartphone battery case will only be available for certain iPhone and Galaxy models, and it is obviously Qi compatible, so if you are running on an LG, HTC, or other handsets not from the select iPhone or Samsung Galaxy models, you’re out of luck. For the moment, at least, as one can always hope that ConvenientPower Systems would do something to remedy the situation for smartphone users who are loyal to brands apart from Samsung and Apple.

Musio the AI social robot Thu, 30 Nov 2017 13:00:10 +0000 musioModern day technology has seen the path of new toys being transformed into highly interactive robots, although one of my fondest memories of such a toy robot would be the Sony Aibo. The Aibo was an adorable dog robot, but it surely had its limitations, not to mention ridiculous price tag that put it out of reach of many. Here is an AI social robot known as Musio, which is extremely cute to look at thanks to its Japanese design roots. What is more important is the fact that Musio is a robot friend that takes the time and effort to understand and remember conversations through all the various interaction with different users — which is more than what I can vouch for when communicating with certain humans.

AKA LLC is the developer of the world’s first artificially intelligent social robot, the Musio, and Musio will be based on AKA’s AI engine ‘MUSE’. This communication robot is capable of interacting socially with all people regardless of their age, where it will be assisted by NLP (Natural Language Processing), Vision, and AKA’s rich interactive content ecosystem. In other words, Musio fits the bill perfectly when it comes to address the world’s growing demand for a robot companion.

Raymond Jung, CEO of AKA LLC, shared, “AKA’s next step is with Europe’s traditional hardware companies seeking innovation. By presenting Musio the robot, AKA is introducing its core technology, MUSE, to our future partners. We believe that our AI engine will present immeasurable opportunity to those calling out for ‘AI Plus’ for the upcoming industrial revolution.”

Musio was launched in Japan earlier this year, making it the top selling social robot in that part of the world. The English conversation feature made it quite a hit, having been configured via MUSE’s context-aware deep-learning algorithm. It can remember dialogue in the past with users, and is also context aware, allowing a natural flow of conversation quite unlike smart speakers in the vein of Google Home and Amazon Alexa. Definitely something that I would love to see end up under the Christmas tree this year!

iStand Walking Cane arrives in three flavors Thu, 30 Nov 2017 12:00:08 +0000 istandA walking stick is something that we all might need to grapple with as we get older, for one simple reason: our balance and gait aren’t what they used to be, so it is useful to have a “third leg” to get up and around while minimizing the chances of falling down. So far, the basic premise is pretty much the same, although in the past there has been technologically-infused ideas of a walking stick such as the Tactile Wand Electronic Walking Stick. Being close to a decade old, how about getting something more updated and useful such as the iStand Walking Cane that will arrive in three flavors?

WhatBox, Inc. claims that this will be the last walking cane that you will ever need to buy, where regardless of the model that you purchase, it will be fashion forward. Of course, there is the staple version which will not carry any kind of technology at all, but we are more interested in the other two models that will sport integrated technology. For instance, there is the iStand with FindMyCane, being a trackable cane that has been infused with GPS technology so that it is a whole lot easier to find out where the cane was last left behind.

The other would be a smart cane with fall detection and Alzheimer’sAlerts capability, also know as iStand Cane with SmartWalk technology. It targets those who might simply wander around and are in need of memory care. Regardless of which model that is picked up, all of them features a flexible shaft for joint comfort, and a no-trip base that stands alone. All of iStand’s smart safety products will not have any burdensome subscription so that seniors and their families will be able to enjoy safety and comfort without having to break the bank.
