Incase Leather Neck Strap: Heavy On Style, Merciful On Your Neck

We are not a shopping blog. We don’t force anything into your throat, but if something as stylish as the Incase Leather Neck Strap for DSLR Camera comes up, we felt compelled to share with everyone because, sharing is caring, or something like that. Apart from tech culture, style is equally important to us and we believe it is to you too. This particularly handsome camera strap gets the style and class from a full-grain natural dye leather outer, while soft laser perforated genuine suede lining ensures carry comfort. A DSLR, however light, can still coerce a camera strap to create an impression on your neck, and thus, suede with breathability to boot is kind of a comforting thought.

An Espresso-making Smartphone Case Got Suspended By Kickstarter And We Wonder Why

Have you heard? There was a Kickstarter project which involves a smartphone case that makes espresso. Yes. The caffeinated beverage that so many love. Out of a smartphone case. Sounds like a pipe dream? Well, it probably is because Kickstarter has since halted the campaign, reportedly, due to the failure on its creators’ part to “produce a prototype that met its (Kickstarter) standards.” I am not going to pretend that I am surprised by that (the suspension). I mean, come’on, man. A smartphone case that makes hot beverage? Who are they kidding right? Continue reading An Espresso-making Smartphone Case Got Suspended By Kickstarter And We Wonder Why

You Will Want This Polygonal Humanoid Speaker Out In Plain Sight

Speakers are, well, just speakers. They are kind of on the receiving end of a love-hate relationship of music lovers. I mean, you need speakers to pump out music that’s for sure, but not everyone love the sight of decor-invading speakers. To be honest, I think most people have learned to accept it, but what if I tell you that you don’t have conform to the norm? Well, you can, with the Sound Heroes Bluetooth Speaker by Kalium Labs. Sound Heroes is literally a hero for those who can’t stand the sight of grill-on-box speakers because it pumps out voluminous sound without looking like a speaker; not even one bit. It takes on the form of a polygonal humanoid. Yes. You heard that right. Polygonal humanoid. And therefore, it will forever change the way you look at speakers.

OnePlus 5 Unveiled, Has Dual-camera And Looks Suspiciously Like An iPhone 7

I kid you not. At a glance, you may mistaken the new OnePlus latest smartphone, the OnePlus 5, as an iPhone 7. Seriously, if those curved edges don’t remind you have the iPhone 7, then perhaps the striking antenna bands at the top and bottom of the device would. Granted, the curved edges aren’t completely roundish like the iPhone 7, but still… Also, it has a dual camera setup too, complete with the ability to do iPhone 7 much advertised, Portrait Mode, and it is offered in a choice of “slate gray” or “midnight black” to boot, but with a slight twist. But more on that later. Whatever happen to OnePlus’s pride and joy, the signature sandstone finish? Continue reading OnePlus 5 Unveiled, Has Dual-camera And Looks Suspiciously Like An iPhone 7

Here’s The New Official GT Sport Racing Wheel From Thrustmaster

Fans of “the real driving simulator,” AKA Gran Turismo, gasp! For there’s a new official GT racing steering wheel coming your way. Like the previous official GT racing wheel, this one here, called T-GT, is born out of a close collaboration between specialist game peripheral maker Thrustmaster and the creators of Gran Turismo to ensure seamless integration and extreme realism, and it took the team a good four years to developed. For freaking years. That is a long time to develop a peripheral and so we trust that it must be beyond good. If delivered as promised, the upcoming Thrustmaster T-GT Racing Steering Wheel could be the most advanced game steering wheel ever. Continue reading Here’s The New Official GT Sport Racing Wheel From Thrustmaster

ParaLenz Is The First Action Camera Built From The Ground Up For Divers

Action cameras for land action are a dime a dozen, but when it comes to below the water surface, it is really far and few between. That is not say there aren’t any. There are, but most of them are not design from the ground up to deal with underwater conditions and the optics aren’t optimized for underwater imaging. To be fair, they still get the job done, but maybe just not the way divers may have liked. Then ParaLenz came along. What makes ParaLenz stands out is, it actually involved no less 250 divers from around the world in the design process, addressing aspects like size, mounts, placement of buttons, and also digging into the wants of divers with regards to a diving camera. And the result is what you see here, a Red Dot 2017 award-winning ParaLenz. Continue reading ParaLenz Is The First Action Camera Built From The Ground Up For Divers

Look! Here’s A Fully Functional Microwave That Plays Games Too

In segment called Fuze’s Invention Show, or FISH, British mad garage inventor Colin Furze takes up the challenge of inventing something to solve problems pitched by fans. Late last May, something very interesting popped up. A fan by the moniker of Board Chefs, AKA Dan Ibstons, (who is not quite a chef but a car mechanic, btw) asked Colin about killing the waiting time when cooking. You know, time spent drumming your fingers on the kitchen countertop while waiting for the pan heat up, or the microwave oven to be done – those kind of inevitable waiting time.
