When it comes to kids, you know that they can be boisterous. Very boisterous in fact, and through their hyperactivity and running around, they are bound to cause something to break. This means handing over a brand new smartphone is not the best of ideas, since a random drop is most probably going to result in two things breaking: the smartphone’s screen and your heart, which is why LeapFrog is able to identify with parents who want a solution by rolling out what is deemed to be the “perfect” first tablet for kids — the LeapPad Ultimate.
Since we have smartwatches and smartphones, why not make sure that the home is also smarter with the kind of hardware that we have in our possession? This is what iDevices has set out to do with the iDevices Dimmer Switch. The iDevices Dimmer Switch is special in a sense that it is the first major product release after being acquired by Hubbell Incorporated earlier in 2017. This particular home accessory will surely enrich the offerings of builders as well as professional installers, where it plays the role of being a hub-less smart switch which will play nice with a trio of extremely important services — Siri, Alexa and the Google Assistant. Certainly, the iDevices Dimmer Switch fits the role of an all-in-one easy-to-use product perfectly!
A tablet is meant to be an alternative communications device to the smartphone, and many of us do happen to own a tablet that is a secondary productivity device. Well, while our smartphones might continue to be our primary portable media player that keeps us entertained on long road trips or across trans-Atlantic flights, this does not mean that we should discount the usefulness of a tablet. AT&T has come up with something interesting in the form of the AT&T Primetime, an exclusive tablet from the mobile carrier that comes loaded with entertainment and productivity features to help you get started right out of the box.
When it comes to gaming, there are two distinct groups. One of them happens to be serious gamers, those who would settle for nothing less than the best when it comes to hardware and performance. The other would be casual gamers, who love nothing better than to pick up a game while they are on the move, pause for a few hours, before resuming at any point in time where they are able to sit back and relax. Well, Acer would like to cater to the latter crowd with the Convertible Nitro 5 Spin gaming notebook.
Not all timepieces are created equal. Some of them happen to be far more advanced than the others, and K-ICT Born2Global Centre’s vision for a unique device that is not only capable of telling the time, but also to ensure protection for the wearer arrives in the form of the Carah safety watch. Of course, the Carah safety watch will continue to remain a dream if it is not fully funded on Kickstarter, but we do believe that it is definitely on the right track. The Carah comes across as a real analogue watch that features smart capabilities as well as a built-in SOS safety alert.
Going out alone can be quite dangerous these days, especially if you are a woman. There are just way too many deranged folk out there on the streets, and you can never quite tell when just one of them is going to snap. Hence, apart from carrying around a pepper spray, it might also be a good idea to tote around a personal security alarm. The iMaxAlarm is one such device that fulfills such a role, where it intends to function as a safeguard and deterrent from potential harm.
The proliferation of mobile device usage among the masses has long passed the critical mass. In fact, just about everyone has a smartphone these days, unless you happen to live in a really far off area that still relies on dumbphones to get the job done. One thing about smartphones that we all love would be its versatility in capability. It not only doubles up as a primary communications device while we are on the move, it is also a nifty portable office, is full well capable of functioning as a portable media player, and works great as a navigation device. With these features in mind, many of us tend to bend over or develop a very poor posture when using our smartphones, and Palmzi is an upcoming accessory that intends to reverse that trend.
While many of us are pretty much happy with our very own flat screen TVs in the living room, this does not mean that there is no opportunity to explore different mediums of visual delivery in the home. Who knows? You might just have a brand new room that you would like to remodel after the previous tenant moved out, and are thinking of turning it into a movie or multimedia enclave. Enter the new range of Epson home cinema projectors that are capable of delivering Full HD images at up to four times the size of that of a regular 60-inch TV.
Optoma knows that going wireless is something that many people would love to have and enjoy these days, and the NuForce BE2 wireless headphones is their exact response as to how a pair of wireless headphones should be. In fact, Optoma bucks the trend that insists on how superior sound quality is accompanied by a superior price point with the NuForce BE2. This pair of wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones is touted to be the most affordable option yet in the BE family of premium Bluetooth, in-ear headphones, where it does not break the $50 price point, clearly making this a prime candidate for an impulse purchase for shoppers.
Knowing who is at your door is more often than not, the very first line of defense. The thing is, most of us are too used to not having a video doorbell, so much so that we might simply open up the door before we even know who it is. The video doorbell is one of the more useful inventions to have around the home in recent times, and the NuTone Knock is one such device. Touted to be a revolutionary new video doorbell, it allows the homeowner to be able to view as well as speak to visitors — regardless of where you are at the moment, as long as there is a decent data connection, of course.
