Hanergy reveals new thin-film solar charging pack Sun, 17 Jun 2018 12:00:40 +0000 HanergyWhen it comes to clean energy, many of us would love the idea of having a virtually inexhaustible supply of energy which is free and plentiful. That would certainly get gadget lovers’ adrenaline running: imagine being able to play with your smartphone all day long without having to worry about it running out of juice simply because you have the means to keep it powered up to maximum at all times, for free! Hanergy figured out the next best thing, a new generation mobile energy solutions that arrives in the form of a thin-film solar charging pack. This is an on-the-go electricity generator and storage device, where it boasts of thin film solar panels that provides an avenue for on-the-go charging when it comes to personal electronics.

When it concerns the physical design, Hanergy’s thin-film solar charging pack will arrive with an accent of high-tech while featuring three choice colors to pick from: Digital Grey, Gem Gold and Lady Rouge. This free-folding thin-film solar charging pack is lightweight enough so that users will be able to enjoy all of its convenient features including “one-grip to go”.

Thanks to its world-leading flexible thin-film solar technology, Hanergy’s thin-film solar charging pack takes on a split-body design that enables it to function regularly even when it is extremely cloudy outside. Even in low light and low temperature environments, it is fully capable of getting the job done. Being more than just a regular electricity generator, such a thin-film solar charging pack will also double up as a real-time power bank that boasts of 5000mAh of capacity.

In addition, this thin-film solar charging pack can hook up to multiple devices sans any wires, and it has even been designed to meet aviation management requirements, which means you can bring it with you on your next commercial flight. However, I believe that some airport personnel who might not be too informed would question the suitability of this device, which would make it a rather risky proposition as a hand-carry option.

LynQ smart compass sees extended Indiegogo campaign Sat, 16 Jun 2018 19:00:26 +0000 LynQ_Smart_CompassThere are many things these days that have begun to earn the “smart” moniker in its prefix, and the compass happens to be one of them. At least this is what the LynQ Indiegogo campaign is all about, where such a smart compass is capable of locating virtually anyone without having to make use of smartphones, networks, subscriptions, or even to rely on any other kind of infrastructure. With the LynQ’s compass-like display, individuals as well as groups will be able to see their relative distance and direction from one another, ensuring that nobody from the “pack” ends up elsewhere, while functioning even when all of the other technologies fail.

It surely sounds extremely cutting edge, but it is simple in nature, really. Just about everyone has experienced a degree of difficulty when it comes to staying together with friends at a music festival, a place where cellular service would be nonexistent with maps being as useful as ice to an Eskimo. How about those who have gone on a skiing holiday and have been separated at the ski slope? Or the fear of a parent who turns around at the newly opened shopping mall, only to see that your child has wandered off elsewhere? With LynQ, everything changes.

Setting up the LynQ takes a matter of seconds, and using it is as simple as pressing the solitary button on it. The user interface allows it to pair up to a dozen devices quickly, where a simple click is all that is required for users to alternate between their group members, show off a user’s name, direction arrow as well as the number of feet/miles to their location. These are fully visible under any conditions courtesy of a backlit, sunlight readable display. One can also opt to have boundaries set for their group, where sound, optical and vibration alerts will kick in at the moment a person leaves a boundary.

Right now, it has a pre-order pricing of $174 for a 2-pack, so make sure you get it while it is still affordable!

Regardless of which model you pick, both of them will boast of a polished look, accompanied by a slimmer case as well as a re-designed Core Guard Structure that links the bezel, back cover and band connection pieces in order to form a box frame for enhanced strength.

Transparent OLED concept from LG looks stunning Tue, 12 Jun 2018 19:00:16 +0000 LG_Electronics_OLEDLG is proud to be the leader in OLED commercial display technology, having already revealed the world’s largest OLED display last year. This time around, the South Korean company has not rested on its laurels, having introduced all new commercial OLED displays that will certainly be able to bring on the “wow factor” for different businesses and enterprising entities with its unique incorporation. This next generation LG transparent OLED display will boast of narrow bezels that help result in its elegant form factor, bringing a futuristic slant to any premise that is decorated with it.

Such an advanced transparent panel will enable end users to harness the picture quality of LG OLED without having to totally block off viewers from objects that are located right behind it. This is a special kind of technology that is all the more impressive when installed in retail environments and art galleries, enabling products to be placed behind the display without resulting in any distortion, or to have special effects shown on the Transparent OLED signage.

There are many different kinds of possible applications of which I can think of in order to utilize the LG transparent OLED display. In terms of artistic impressions, artists can do a whole lot more than just to use it to display information about an artwork. Why not make it part of the artwork as well, providing a multi-layered experience for the art lover?

While it might still remain a concept, chances are LG has already drawn up plans to turn this into a commercially profitable solution in the near future. If that is going to be the case, you can expect shopping malls to be able to offer a unique shopping experience that online shopping channels are unable to, which might perhaps drive more foot traffic into the area.

PanoClip makes 360 photo-taking a snap Mon, 11 Jun 2018 19:00:24 +0000 PanoClip_iPhoneTaking a panoramic shot of anything is always a novelty for me, perhaps due to the fact that I grew up on 4R prints. There is something magical about panoramic shots, they simply convey a sense of space and majesty, especially when it concerns a breathtaking view from the top of a mountain or somewhere similar. Well, the PanoClip that has been recently launched is something that all iPhone users might want to check out if panoramic shots are their cup of tea, as it is able to allow virtually anyone to effortlessly snap 360 photos as well as “Tiny Planet” shots, all right from their smartphone. It makes use of a cleverly designed dual-lens system, where the PanoClip will snap instantly onto a smartphone before the software works on stitching together the shots to create seamless 360 photos through a clever combination of images from both front and rear cameras.

iPhone users who are interested in picking up the PanoClip will be able to do so for a relatively affordable price point of $49.99 apiece, and for a device that proudly claims to be the first of its kind, it is certainly extremely affordable. It will pair up with the most commonly used camera these days, the one found on the iPhone, which would mean that we should see more 360 shots appear on social media profiles everywhere in due time should the PanoClip take off in a big way.

While the PanoClip functions on a similar principle as that of traditional 360 cameras, it will only use two cameras in order to achieve a similar result. This is made possible courtesy of its super-wide-angle lenses that will work in tandem with the handset’s front and rear cameras, while sharing the fruit of your labor afterwards on social media platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, or Facebook is a snap.

V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition released Sun, 10 Jun 2018 19:00:47 +0000 Crossfade-2-Wireless-Codex-EditionV-Moda has always been synonymous with top notch high-fidelity audio devices, and the company has just announced the release of its brand new Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition headphones. It does not matter whether you are a general consumer or a demanding audiophile who would like to enjoy professional grade audio quality, this pair of headphones will be able to satisfy a wide range of customers. In fact, the ante is raised even further as it boasts of three audio codecs that will improve wireless audio quality as well as universal compatibility: Qualcomm aptX, AAC and SBC, with the discerning customer being able to pick from Matte Black, Matte White and Rose Gold shades.

Are codecs the new cables in the industry? V-Moda thinks so, where the Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition will attempt to bridge the gap between the sound quality of wireless and wired playback after looking into how Bluetooth audio quality is defined by the algorithm codec and bitrate against the version. This means audio quality is not compromised when one wants to enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity.

This pair of Codex Edition headphones will boast of Qualcomm aptX for CD sound quality via Bluetooth when it works alongside higher-end Android and MacOS sources. Apart from that, Advanced Audio Codec (AAC) ensures best sound performance on iOS, with the Sub-Band Codec (SBC) targeting universal compatibility when a particular device does not support aptX and AAC codecs. The headphone audio codec in-use will perform adjustments by itself according to the paired device, and should a particular device be compatible with more than a single codec, users have the choice to select the one that they would like to enjoy.

With an asking price of €350 apiece, the Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition will be made available worldwide within the coming two months at most.
