Many of us would like nothing better than to plonk our bodies down in our favorite chair when we return home, kick back and relax — preferably with our favorite tunes playing in the background, of course. Music is food for the soul, and a good home theater system also works wonders to de-stress with a great movie. Bose has come up with the Soundbar 700 and Soundbar 500 which will crush the limitations of spaciousness from a solitary enclosure, as it merges size-defying performance with superior voice pickup as well as the power of Amazon Alexa. There will be support for other voice assistants in the future, as well as AirPlay 2 compatibility for simple streaming from Apple devices from early next year onwards.
A turntable might be seen by some to be an antique, while for the others, it might be a plaything for folks who have some extra dough to splash at the end of each month. After all, vinyl records are not all that cheap in the first place, and they do tend to wear out … Read more
If your computer screen isn’t big enough for your personal tastes, there’s a good chance you’ve connected your Internet to your TV. There’s nothing quite like playing Candy Crush or watching cat videos on YouTube with surround sound. While you can use a universal remote control like Logitech Harmony 650, it’s not as easy or … Read more
While 3D movies are a big deal, people are either in love with it, or hate it. For those of you that are fond of this type of viewing experience, there are a variety of different products ranging from cameras to televisions that have heavy emphasis on this aspect. For the cinematic world, you can’t just watch a 3D movie without sporting some silly looking glasses, but it’s always a game of chance finding a pair that isn’t scratched up or gross from being used by someone else.
When someone mentions the name “Sceptre”, what comes into your mind? I am quite sure that many of us are well acquainted with Sceptre’s range of LED TVs that deliver plenty of bang for your hard earned buck, and this has somewhat raised the confidence of the general cost conscious populace in this relative newcomer to the home theater/audio visual arena. This time around, the folks over at Sceptre has something slightly different for us as your eyes would not be the ones entertained, but rather, your auditory canals, in the form of the Sceptre SB301524W Speaker Sound Bar 2.1.
I like to share pics and video that I carry around on my iPhone, obviously that’s one of the main reasons I even own an iPhone in the first place, but I have to tell you, its hard to get the full effect of some of those special moments on my phones touch screen, no matter how vibrant and amazing the screen may be, its still pretty darn small.
Welcome the Pocket Projector for iPhone 4, a nifty little, easy to use dock station and projector that can take your movies, videos or presentations and project them anywhere. Poolside movie shown on the side of your house? No problem. Camp-out under the stars while you watch the latest hack and slash film on a sheet hung in the trees? Absolutely! The device charges via USB and can also be used as a back up battery for your phone.
The recently concluded IFA 2011 in Berlin, Germany, certainly brought about plenty of excitement what with cool new tablets being introduced. Well, it seems that the stereoscopic 3D action is far from over, and you might even say that it is just starting – as Marchon3D decided to introduce their new 3D eyewear collection in that part of the world. Known as the EX3D glasses, these will arrive in the UK first followed by most of the other European countries sometime this month.
The EX3D collection is said to rely on patented M3D technology from Marchon3D, where it will allow three-dimensional images to be reproduced via curved lenses in high definition glory for your personal enjoyment. This also means that you are able to move around and turn your head freely while wearing the glasses, without experiencing any headache inducing distortion. To top it all off, you will definitely look far from geeky unlike the first generation 3D glasses that you wore in cinemas, as plenty of thought and heart had went into the design of each pair of EX3D glasses. Not only do you enjoy an unprecedented degree of comfort, but also 100% UV protection.
Aren’t you glad that 3D glasses are something that you wear across the front of your face, and not as personal as a pair of earbuds? Good thing this makes it easier to use 3D glasses in movie theaters, never mind that a gazillion other people have also worn the same pair of glasses before you did. Well, the next time you want to catch the next big 3D flick, how about bringing your very own pair of glasses along so that there is no more need to share with anyone else?
Marchon3D is the brains behind this idea, where they have teamed up with Cinemark and UltraStar Cinemas in San Diego and Huntington Beach to deliver the first in-theater, self-service vending machines of its kind. Needless to say, these vending machines won’t deliver popcorn for you – but rather, it will spit out Marchon3D’s line of patented, curved RealD 3D compatible glasses known as EX3D Eyewear.
