Hammacher Schlemmer has been well known to produce some rather stunning devices and put them up for sale, and this particular model is something which not everyone would have thought of. Since drones ended up being all the rage some time ago, and the selfie phenomena continues to grow as many smartphones now feature a front-facing camera that have an equal or higher megapixel count compared to the back camera. Why not merge the two together and you would end up with what is known as the $299.95 Selfie Drone?
When you want to take photos with a DSLR camera and don’t have an entire crew to help you, it’s time to invest in accessories. This means devices such as flashes or stabilizers like a tripod, but for shots where you are part of the picture you’ll need a shutter remote to snap the image. There’s normally a ten second timer to take images, which you can do a lot with let me tell you, but it would be nice if you could set up and snap the image once rather than leaving it all up to how quickly you can move.
Do you ever wish your kids were combat ready so they can take down an evil government at the drop of a hat? Hopefully that is never the case, but kids do love to shoot the crap out of each other with Nerf guns, and I don’t blame them because it’s fun! While we’ve come a long way in the development of foam weaponry, do you ever get worried that we might be going too far?
Ray Enterprises happens to be a next generation consumer technology company, and they have rightfully made an announcement that is on par with their company’s stature – that is, their Ray Super Remote being able to function with the Nest Learning Thermostat in order to provide Ray customers with control of their homes, and this control will go beyond the living room to boot. Ray happens to be an intuitive, touchscreen universal remote that looks and feels like a smartphone, and yet is full well capable of controlling thousands of devices, while providing recommendations on what to watch on TV. The remote would play nice with the Nest Thermostat as well via a new app developed by Ray, which was exclusively created for the remote itself.
When you want to get work done, you should keep your phone as far away from you as possible. All of your social media hubs, friends and family that are ripe and ready for conversation, and new game apps for you to download will suck away every spare minute you have. No seriously, I just picked up my phone and lost five minutes while writing this.
We love taking photos, videos, panoramas and more, but sometimes our phones aren’t exactly quick on the draw. The quality and speed of our phones is only so great, but on the opposing side, getting a good quality camera means not being able to upload everything as quickly. Everyone has heard of GoPro, and while it’s great and all, you have a specific period of time to record before needing to recharge. It is pretty top-tier though, and you don’t normally come across contenders that can pull a new trick out of the hat while keeping the same level of quality and convenience.
We are all creatures who would love to have a little bit of comfort here and there – it really makes sense, as who does not want to end up living it up in a luxurious home that would make its way into a TV show like MTV Cribs? Well, if you are flush with cash, or simply feel that it is about time you made the step to elevate yourself to the next level on the social ladder, then perhaps you might want to look at how your remote control would resemble in the living room. No ordinary remote control is going to do, as you now have the option of picking up the Savant Remote that offers a simple setup via Savant Instant, allowing homeowners to begin enjoying all their entertainment in a matter of minutes.
Slightly more than a week ago, we brought you word that there is a spanking new generation of Apple TV that is ready and waiting to cater to the masses as the never ending quest for entertainment in the living room continues. Of course, if you know Apple, their stuff aren’t exactly the cheapest items on the block, and it is always a privilege for companies to be given the license to roll out third party accessories for Apple products. Griffin Technology is one of them, where they have revealed the Survivor Play for Siri Remote.
