HiddenRadio2 bluetooth speaker is overwhelmingly good

A long time has passed since my last post, but rejoice, today’s awesome product might make you excuse me for that.

Introducing HiddenRadio2, a revision of the first iteration of the name HiddenRadio, which was rather well received by tech critics. The main drawback were FM usability and Sound not being so great after all.

but both of these concern seem to have been resolved with this year’s product.

In response to the hood muffling the sound and more generally relatively poor deep and eerie high, The team implemented a top of the line technology called dual “speaker neodymium“. Let see what that really means. Apparently they have a “high output to weight ratio which makes them ideal for a number of portable applications”. Perfect for the HiddenRadio2 isn’t it ? the result is cristal-clear highs and cavernous deeps:

About the FM radio, well, there is none now. Get over it. Life moves on. Honestly what use is there to an FM radio when you’ve got all these application that can stream thousands of radios from the internet like TuneIn Radio ?

But that is not all folks ! You did not honestly though it would be it did you ? HiddenRadio2 has still 3 main features you ant to hear about:

Let’s go over them from left to right, right ? That would totally makes sense. But let’s do the contrary like true anarchists.

Magic lift means you just have to touch the top to boot up the device like and raise the top like it’s an elevator from Star Trek or something.

Smart control is actually more or less the same thing as magic lift, in the way it uses the touch sensor on the top to enable simple control: tap once to pause, tap twice to go forward, or draw a circle clockwise to increase the volume. Hell yeah, you can even call siri ! As the HiddenRadio2 has noise-canceling mics and hands free calls software, My guess is that you’ll start using Siri a lot more with the Speaker than before. Anyway my thought is that it’s pretty damn cool.

Multipoint, I think you’ve guessed by now enables you to connect to multiple speakers at once. Two different use case: you can have one in each room, or enable stereo and use them to watch a movie or something.

Lastly, the battery last a whooping 15 hours, which is not the highest in the portable speakers jungle but still in the high end. It can deliver some 90db, meaning you’ll suffer hearing loss if you stay around it at max volume for too long.          In case the design wasn’t obvious enough, the HiddenRadio2 has a 360° sound, how could it not.

To conclude, I’de say that for 149$, it’s a rather admirable deal, if the sound is indeed better than before. However don’t wait for the kickstarter campaign to end, as retail versions will sell for some 199$. Whatever, just take a look at this comparaison, you won’t argue very long

A 379$ beautiful 3D printer ? yes it’s possible.

C

an you spot it ? It seems to be part of the furniture. The glass base make it look like it’s floating in the air. Magic. What’s more, it is Wifi compatible, meaning you can actually print from everywhere in your home, even on your iPhone/Ipad actually:

Another neat feature, is the easy-to use 3D modeler, which you can see above.

The Bucaneer is currently pre-selling on kickstarter.

wodden keyboard for iMacs and Macbooks

to get an idea of how they look, I thought the wireless was the best example, but the keys are also available in a lighter tone, which I find more pleasant to look at:

 

Although the letters seem big, I imagine how comfortable it would be to type on these. You can find them on kickstarter, if they manage to launch the product.

Limeade 18,000 mAH battery fits in your hand, and can charge your iPhone 12 times

There are many external batteries for iPhones, some in cases, some not, but except super expensive models, they can charge iPhone once or twice. Not so good. This battery aims to be at the same time huge and as small as it can possibly be.

Actually, there are three different models: 13 000, 15 600, 18 000 mAH:

But this battery isn’t dull. It actually has a few advantages you may not knew you needed.

First, it can charge two devices at a time, like your Ipad and your iPhone, basically:

It is rechargeable by 2A, meaning it can charge in about 10h, or around a night.

It has a safety flashlight, you know, just in case you’re in the middle of nowhere and the only thing you have with you is your Limeade battery. It has a charge indicator with 4 LED, not very precise, but useful to know when the battery needs to be plugged in. It also comed with a 30 pin and micro usb cable, but no lightning cable, which are used by iPhone 5 and iPads.

 

To finish off, here is a table which shows how many times each device can be charged:

  • Apple iPhone 4 or 5: ~12.5 times
  • Samsung Galaxy S III: ~8 times
  • Samsung Galaxy Note: ~7 times
  • Amazon Kindle Fire: ~4 times
  • Apple iPad 1 or 2: ~2 times
  • Google Nexus 4: ~8.5 times
  • Google Nexus 10: ~2 times
  • Sony PSP: ~11 times
  • Apple iPod Nano: ~171 times

As you notice, you can’t use it with you PC or mac. It’s not the right voltage. Anyway, if you want to buy this monster, hurry up, they are selling like hotcakes !!!

 

DOCKr 4in1 solution for Ipad: keyboard, battery, speakers, usb, protective case.

Actually The DOCKr is advertised as a 6in one Product, but the last two are “colos and style” and “multiple angles of viewing”, wich aren’t really features, you know. At first, the DOCKr seems like a cheap plastic accessory, and that’s too bad, because in fact, it is one of the most advanced solutions to turn any Ipad in a small computer.

See ? it looks like a toy. Nevertheless, It’s actually great. The battery included is about 4-8h, and can charge other devices, via the usb port. The keyboard in fact is just a space for the apple bluetooth keyboard or the inuenvo keyboard they sell, but as it is the best bluetooth keyboard, we won’t complain about that, are we ? A noteworthy feature, the Ipad can be in portrait or landscape mode. Neat. Last but not least, the wireless speakers are bluetooth, stereo, and are effective from 30 feet. for 135$ with a keyboard,The DOCKr really a good deal.

FLAXUS, a stylus like you’ve never seen before !

There are indeed a lot of stylus in the wild, even though the guru of the main product stylus are used for didn’t found them of any use. Some of them use microwave bizarre technology to fell the pressure on the screen. Some can work on macs. Some even take the shape of a real cepillar ! And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Seems like everyone doesn’t agree on this point. You can find more great stylus here, but now let’s get to this one.

What is is selling point you might ask ? it works as a bracelet. Wear it around you wrist and use it when you want. It uses the same technique as this object, if you know it:

Now put a stylus on the two sides and here is what you got:

Touchscreen phone compatible

Fashion wrist bracelet

I don’t have any need for a stylus, but this one is just so gorgeous, I’ll buy one for display if I could. If you have any need for a stylus, well head here to get yours. Thanks for reading 🙂

thermodo thermometer FINALLY gives real time temperature to the Iphone

One of the iphone meteo app is that the temperature is taken by external sensors, so indoor temperature is absolutely impossible to mesure. Until now. Robocat team, which is behind thermo (a weather app with more than 2 000 000 downloads), has found the solution. It’s called Thermodo.

So small, We can wonder why it’s not directly integrated IN the Iphone, but God works in mysterious ways. Anyway, it works exactly like you would expect it to work, launch the thermodo app, connect the thermodo in the jack port, and exact temperature will show up. The battery impact is close to none, so you can leave the thermodo in place if you want, or put it back on your keychain.

So you see, It’s not to complicated. It works from -20 to 50 °C degrees, more than the Iphone itself can bare. Pledge now to get your owns, it just costs a little 25$
