When we’re searching for a new gizmo or gadget, we have to really research our options so that the shiny toy we’re after will be worth the money we sink into it. Smartwatches are all over the place, and if you don’t have one there’s likely the tiniest inkling in your mind that you might want one of these for your own. Of course, there are so many options out there that it’s hard to find one that will fit you uniquely.
We all have our preferences for platforms, and within that we have specific brands and types of peripherals or controllers that we like using over others. Long ago Mad Catz was at the opposing end of being our favorite, but with time comes change, and they’ve certainly come out swinging. If you’re looking for a multiplatform device that can be as mobile as your life demands it to be, they might just have the controller for you.
We spend a lot of money on smartphones, because the nicer, newer ones can do far more exciting things than the old ones can. The iPhone made waves when it first came out, and now we’re one the…well, they call it the 6s, but there’s more than 6 different types in existence. If your new phone with pressure-sensitive technology isn’t fancy enough for you, then you’re going to need accessories to up your game.
There are a lot of bone conduction headsets out there. We’ve seen ones meant for swimmers, runners, and those who just want a new way to listen to tunes. Of course, with newer innovations, there will come better products, but usually it takes a little time for the cream of the crop to surface. Crowdfunding projects are still on the up and up, but it does give some insight as to what might be on the horizon.
There are a lot of sounds we are attuned to. We know when Twitter goes off, when a text comes in, and the faint sound of our ringtone in our pocket. However, those are just things in the digital world, as we also keep an ear out for car horns, people calling our name, birds chirping, and the other normal background noises of life. When we listen to music or watch a movie, we’re usually engrossed in the sounds that come from it, completely shielding our ears from the outside world.
We want to be as close to our gaming worlds as possible, so it makes sense that we’re striving to make exceedingly real virtual reality experiences. We’ve already got things like the Occulus, Omni, wireless controllers that act as weapons and much more. However, the more we put on, the harder it is to make the experience seem real. There have been innovations to expand your visual field in your living room, but they only do so much as you’re not really moving with the environment.
If you’ve ever used a locker during your school years, you have dealt with either a combination lock or a padlock. The combination lock is easy enough as you can write down the numbers or keep the combo in your phone, but a padlock requires you to keep track of a key. Unless you have a lockpick handy, you’re going to have a hard time getting into anything without one.
One week of a crazy schedule turns into two months of non-stop going, and becomes a year of insanity. The only way you can keep yourself going is by getting proper nutrition and at least some semblance of sleep. Of course, figuring out how much sleep you need and when to wake yourself up even though you know you’re not going to get enough is tough. Once you throw in unknown factors like noisy neighbors or rowdy pets, things become even more complicated.
We know we’re supposed to take about a full minute to brush our teeth, but that hardly ever happens. Do you actually count out 60 seconds, and spend 15 seconds on each quadrant of your mouth? No, didn’t think so. We often need some form of motivation to take care of that kind of tedious behavior, so it would likely help if there were a game you could play by brushing your teeth.
