Singtrix would like to make sure that the karaoke bug can travel with you just about wherever you go — and even make you sound better than you already do, now how about that?

Specially designed to make bad singers actually sound good, while good singers might just get blown out of their minds with the kind of voice that they hear, the Singtrix Family Bundle is a portable, tabletop version that is easier on your pockets as well.
As high-end karaoke systems tend to be a whole lot more expensive than what the average Joe is able to afford, while arriving with complicated interfaces, not to mention requiring you to fork out even more money to pick up expensive music content and leaving all and sundry to listen to your lack of vocal capability, the highly-anticipated Singtrix Family Bundle will ensure that it combats all of the points mentioned. This is made possible through the incorporation of studio quality effects of the flagship Singtrix Party Bundle Premium Edition.
For starters, the spanking new Family Bundle model by Singtrix will boast of a custom mic that features the “HIT” effect control. This unique effect control supercharges performances by transforming user’s voices into a four-part vocal harmony and choir. The mic will also be accompanied by a compact and portable stereo speaker system which sports a built-in dock for the Studio Effects console. The Studio Effects console is said to be the heart and soul of the Singtrix system.
Other portable features of this notable machine include built-in handles, power supply and cables, alongside its simple plug and play. Out this summer for $249.99 a pop, the Singtrix Family Bundle is certainly a welcome addition to any home.

When it comes to action cameras, there are dime a dozen models out there alongside flagships from GoPro — which is somewhat akin to the number of drones that are popping up left and right all over the place. Well, if you would like to find an action camera that is different from the rest, you might consider the all-new ACTIV 360-degree camera from Vyu360. Not only is the ACTIV compact in its form factor, it is also waterproof — which would come in handy for many a situation.

At times, it does verge on the suicidal, such as climbing up to places that are normally off limits before shooting a selfie. Maybe being in water is slightly safer, with the ACTIV in tow.
Of course, this does not mean you perform crazy stunts at a waterfall or by the ocean where you are not familiar with the terrain. Rather, the ACTIV is the ideal companion when you would like to record your whitewater rafting adventures, or perhaps would like to bring back memories of recent picnics in order to share with family members and friends.

When it comes to portable or wireless speakers, most of us would look for the model that is hardy in nature, being able to take just about anything and everything that you throw in its direction. Well, LG has a slightly different route this time around with the LG PJ9, where this wireless speaker is certainly out of the ordinary in terms of its design. After all, most of the portable speakers that are in the market require you to bring them around with you, or even hook them up to a carabiner. For those who use it at home, you leave it on the table. Not so with the LG PJ9 that is all set to debut at CES 2017 — this particular speaker will levitate, as though by magic — now how about that for impressive?
The LG PJ9 is certainly a mesmerizing wireless speaker in its own right, and the magic will happen when you place it over the accompanying Levitation Station. It has the ability to deliver high-quality audio, and at the same time offer a lasting impression thanks to its eye-catching design. It also has a looks that will certainly turn heads whenever anyone lays their eyes on it. It does not matter whether the LG PJ9 is used to play music, podcasts or different kinds of audio content, it will be able to do all of that seamlessly while looking fantastic — even in the outdoors.
Making use of powerful electromagnets that is included deep inside the Levitation Station, the PJ9 will be able to achieve a stunning visual effect of floating in mid-air, without the need for any kind of wire to hold it in place. Right smack in the middle is a 360-degree omnidirectional speaker that has a turbine blade-inspired design, delivering deep bass thanks to the subwoofer that is embedded within the Levitation Station. The LG PJ9 itself will also feature Dual Passive Radiator technology that can reproduce flush mid-range tones as well as crisp highs for enhanced sound quality. No word on pricing yet as at press time, but we expect that small issue to resolve itself when it is officially announced at CES 2017.
Technology is growing at an ever-increasing rate. While this is awesome and means that there will be a lot of advances in medicine, clean energy, and farming, it also means that it’s hard to keep up with all the toys, gizmos and gadgets. Crazy as it may seem, not everyone wants to throw away all of their electronics every year and buy the newest thing on the market.
If you fall under that category and are still enjoying your old speakers that don’t connect via Bluetooth, but sometimes wish that they did, the Etekcity Bluetooth Receiver will make what is old feel like almost brand new. This gives you up to 10 hours of 4.0 Bluetooth streaming on a full charge with a range of 33 feet. You’ll be able to use this for your home theater system, car stereo, or just your normal speakers for your TV or computer.
This easily adapts through A/V, RCA, and a 3.5mm jack. It was made to be portable so it can make any speaker system you come across Bluetooth compatible. The charge time to get it to full is around 2 hours, but thankfully you can use it while it’s plugged in. Obviously though, that will increase the charging time. You’ll be looking at paying out around $19 for this little device, but that is vastly better than paying for a brand new speaker system for all of your various devices.
