Neeo is what a universal remote should be

 NEEO Remote

There’s a good chance you have at least one universal remote in your home. While it may be able to work across a few different devices, we don’t really bother with figuring out what codes to enter to make everything work together. This usually results in 4 or more remotes hanging out on the living room table. Invariably, one of them goes missing and it’s always the one that changes the channel.

Weye Feye Wi-Fi remote control for DSLRs

weye-feyeWe live in an increasingly connected society, so much so that breaking news and the latest happenings needs to be shared right there and then – anything slower than “instant” would be considered anathema. With social networks playing a really huge role in our lives, with most of us having a Twitter and Facebook account, there are various tools out there which will help aid us in broadcasting our life to the virtual world. Since many smartphones these days come with a decent camera – whether at the back or the selfie one, most of us have social network profiles that depict the exotic places of where we have been, hoping to net a few more “Likes” or comments along the way. Snapping good selfies, however, can be quite a challenge – and you might look funny with one of those “selfie sticks”. If only there was a remote control solution in the market. But there is! With the aptly named Weye Feye, this external device will be able to generate its own Wi-Fi network, allowing you to control virtually any compatible DLSR camera from your mobile device using a free app.

You’ve seen it in every movie, every TV show, that dramatizes loss. A fire guts a house, and while there’s real pain in the destruction and damage, the real loss, is in the memories. Photographs, and recordings of a life well lived. It’s human nature to want to preserve the past, to share it with others, to relive our lives as we grow and change. How about a way to really chronicle our lives, for ourselves, for our families?

Oh how the world loves a battery… there aren’t too many toys or gadgets these days that don’t run thru a goodly supply of AA’s. That being said, I certainly wish I had a little more control over how these batteries were used, like how long my kid could play with her toys, or how long a lantern could be left on, or just to make sure things were turned off all the way in order to avoid wasting precious battery life . Yup. Battery control, that could be cool…

I have to admit I’ve made the switch to electric candles, I know they don’t look completely authentic, but I like the fact that they’re safe, don’t drip wax everywhere and the high end models can even be set to come on at a certain time everyday. I like how flickering candles set a lovely holiday mood. Yes, the real thing is always prettier… that is until now.
