Music is definitely something which is full well capable of lifting up one’s soul, especially when one is down and would need some kind of encouragement and being spurred onward and forward. It raises morale of troops who have been feeling the blues, and can at times bring about a spiritual renaissance in the entire camp. Having said that, embarking on a long road trip without music is pretty much as bad as not having the car’s air conditioning work throughout the journey. While there are other Bluetooth accessories for vehicles, the Kinivo Bluetooth Car Kit does offer you the ability to stream music in your ride as well.
The Kinivo Bluetooth Car Kit happens to be ideal for those who plan to drive across the country this holiday season, or anyone else who will be spending plenty of time behind the wheel, actually. After all, it can be retrofitted to existing car stereos via a 3.5mm audio input port in order to offer an instant upgrade to the ride, rental cars included, with a Bluetooth compatible stereo system. Apart from that, the Bluetooth Car Kit will also boast of a built-in microphone and audio controls, so that one will be able to drive and at the same time, entertain whoever is calling you at the moment, not to mention its primary purpose, which is to stream music, although it does a decent job at letting you tune in to navigation instructions over the car’s speakers, too.
Kinivo VP Raj Srivastava did share, “We know that having music you love and turn-by-turn driving directions to your next adventure makes all the difference when you’re on a road trip. Kinivo’s Bluetooth Car Kit is a simple upgrade to your car to make a good trip great.” Surely there is no way to argue around that, right?

Bluetooth speakers seem to be dime a dozen these days, although there are some out there which intend to stand out from the rest of the crowd by being tougher than a regular piece of consumer electronics. Well, if you are not too much into the rugged lifestyle, but would prefer to still enjoy your music sans wires, perhaps checking out the collection of Doctor Who Bluetooth Speakers might be a good idea, especially if you are a fan of all things Doctor Who.
Depending on what you choose, the price will range from $99.99 to $249.99, where you will be able to select from a TARDIS, Dalek Sec (black), an Assault Dalek (bronze), or a combo pack. Each choice will feature half a dozen integrated sound clips from the show for that added bit of novelty, now how about that? This is a true blue Doctor Who sonic experience, where your ears will be treated to 2″ high power speakers and a 2.5″ passive bass radiator. Since they happen to be wireless, there is no need to crawl behind and all over the place to place the speakers. If you decide to purchase multiples, there is the added advantage of chaining them together and hear EX-TER-MI-NATE in surround sound. A single battery charge will be able to last for 10 hours of continuous use thereabouts.

Casio is a well known watchmaker from the Land of the Rising Sun, and if there were to be a defining timepiece from the Japanese company, I would definitely say that it is the G-Shock range that has captured the imagination of the masses for many years now. However, it must be noted that Casio does not just dabble with G-Shock timepieces, they too, have rolled out watches of varying models and functionalities from time to time. This time around, we see Casio raise the bar with the introduction of the rugged and versatile Casio PRW-3500 watch. Part of the PRO TREK range, the PRW-3500 is the first model from that line to boast of 200-meter water resistance, Casio’s next-generation Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, and Tough Solar Power, which means this is a must-have accessory for outdoor enthusiasts.
Those who have a penchant for adventure will definitely appreciate the fact that the Casio PRW-3500 comes with a high level of water protection, allowing one to wear the PRW-3500 with full confidence regardless of the kind of outdoor activities that one would indulge in, including surfing, diving, kayaking, and rafting.
The 200 meter water resistance found in the PRW-3500 will enable one to plumb new depths in their outdoor adventures, where the Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology that comes with a direction sensor and pressure sensor for compass and altimeter/barometer readings will definitely be handy to have around. Apart from that, the atmospheric sensor will also boast of a pressure trend alarm so that users will remain informed of any sudden pressure swings which might be overlooked otherwise. Not only that, this timepiece will allow the user to effortlessly check and record all of the required information on outdoor conditions.
There is also no need for battery changes courtesy of Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology, where a full charge using the sun’s powers will offer a battery life of approximately 23 months – and this without further exposure to light, mind you! Heck, it can even be charged in low or fluorescent light, making this a truly unique and durable timepiece. The asking price for the Casio PRW-3500 would range from $300 to $450, depending on the colors that you pick.

Eyes – digital ones especially, are cool to have around. After all, with all of us getting a whole lot more connected in this day and age than ever before, a digital camera that is capable of recording whatever that is going on in real time, and transferring all of that to a device remotely is useful when it comes to DIY home security solutions. Hence, for those who would like to up the ante in their own “castles”, the $219.95 Outdoor Wi Fi Live Monitoring Camera does seem to be the perfect deal, as this weatherproof Wi-Fi video camera will automatically record real time video when it detects motion.
The camera itself will hook up to a home’s wireless network, letting you view the exterior of your home in real time regardless of where you are geographically, as long as you have a decent Internet connection on your device – be it a smartphone, tablet or computer. An integrated motion sensor will be able to detect movement up to 30′ away, where it will then turn on the camera while capturing 720p high-definition color video at a rapid 30 frames-per-second. Not only that, the unit’s IP65 weatherproof housing would let it withstand precipitation and temperatures ranging from -13° F to 113° F. It also has the ability to automatically send still pictures or video clips to your email account, alongside a remotely controlled 10X digital zoom. Even when dusk falls, fret not, as this camera sports night vision that allows visibility up to 15′ away, accompanied by a microphone and a SD memory card slot.

Just in case you have not noticed, TVs have become larger and larger in size over the years, while its thickness has dropped – with the largest ever visible leap being that of the fat and chunky CRTs going to fat camp and coming out as slim LCD TVs at the beginning of the revolution, which has since also seen the advent (and demise) of the plasma TV, with LED and OLED TVs being all the rage these days. Of course, with such downsizing in thickness, how does the audio department fare? TV sound, too, has progressed, although the lesser models might deliver dull, tiny, flat and lifeless audio. Cambridge Audio wants to buck the trend with their brand new Cambridge Audio TV5 and TV2 Stereo TV Bases which will deliver class-leading sound with incredibly wide sound dispersion, making either model ideal for any flat panel TV through a discrete solution that avoids the clutter of multiple surround sound speakers.
Being different from a traditional soundbar, the TV5 and TV2 are more than capable of delivering punchy performance without the need for an external subwoofer, and neither do you have to settle for the added inconvenience of wall mounting.
The TV5 and TV2 from Cambridge Audio will see the company take baby steps into a new product category. Specially designed in the heart of London by the same team of Cambridge Audio’s engineers which tuned the company’s Aero and AeroMax speaker range, the TV5 and TV2 will both come with a 100W digital amplifier that pumps out impressive power and control, whereas the built-in subwoofers guarantee that soundtracks will be able to deliver a big and full experience to match the on-screen action.
Sporting a pair of patented 2.25’’ (57mm) Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) speaker drivers, the TV2 comes with an active, down-firing 6.5’’ (165mm) subwoofer, while the TV5 throws in another 6.5’’ active subwoofer. Both models also stream high quality aptX Bluetooth audio, and the new TV5 and TV2 Stereo TV Bases will retail for $399.99 and $299.99, respectively.

When you’re looking for a Bluetooth keyboard, you want something that is compatible with your devices, cheap, and isn’t a pain to use. Finding the perfect one is always a nightmare, because there are so many options to choose from. The range of quality is pretty staggering, but there are always a few good among the sea of them. We’ve seen some keyboards from Inateck before, and while the quality has been a jump between high and low, it looks like they’re starting to really get the hang of things with the BK1003E Bluetooth Keyboard.
This is a combination of matte black plastic and brushed stainless steel in a curved shape design that has a professional feel to it. It is rather slim, but has full-sized, decently spaced key caps. Bright white letters distinguish the keys, and light blue decals tells you that the keys have special functions. There are four low rubber feet that help stop the keyboard from sliding, and a tiny power switch hides next to the foot on top right side.
There’s an LED light on the side near the microUSB slot that will glow red when charging, and green when fully juiced up. There’s also an LED on the top right face of the keyboard that will let you know when the keyboard is on (only lights up for the first ten seconds), and will blink blue when you’re trying to connect to a Bluetooth device. Instead of having to hold down a power button as it was with the previous keyboards, this requires you to press FN+C to send out a signal.
This uses a rechargeable battery, hence the microUSB slot, and a power saving mode that will put the keyboard to sleep after 10 minutes of not using it. This means it can last for weeks on a single charge. If you want to wake it up again, press any key for 3 seconds and it will jolt back into action.
For a keyboard that only costs $27, it’s not too shabby. The keys are pleasant to type on, it’s slim with a comfortable weight to it, looks pretty nifty, and and there is no latency from the time I press the key to the reaction on my phone or computer. The keys are spaced well and are surprisingly tall, which made them easier for my fingers to find. The sound they create makes me think of a plastic key cap that wants to be as cool as a mechanical keyboard, but just can’t make it. They’re not silent as the description suggests as they do have a rather obvious spring back sound, though it is a tad muffled.
While the metal and stainless steel are really beautiful together, the plastic feels a little cheap in comparison to the metal. Both sides are prone to scratches, and the metal is going to get just as many smudgy fingerprints as your smartphone does. Is this a deal breaker? Not at all, but if we’re going to be nit-picky, the plastic could be a bit thicker.
What I found bothersome is that they made a point to put Android, Windows, and iOS on the key caps that are highlighted the same as the other function buttons, but they served no purpose. This connects to any Bluetooth device, so there’s no need to specify certain brands over the others. Aside from letting me know that they are compatible with devices from these companies, these buttons only served to be confusing, as it made it seem as though you could switch between devices. When I tried to pair two devices at once and switch to the device I initially had it paired to, it stopped working on either device, and I had to forget it on both devices for it to work on one of them again.
If you want a rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard that isn’t too costly and can travel with you while holding its charge for more than a day or two, this would be perfect. The keys are spaced well and high enough to make it almost feel like you’re on your desktop computer rather than running out and about for work. However, only pair it with one device at a time, and don’t expect the keys to be quiet.
When it comes to ensuring that you get the best possible performance in terms of gaming, there are many brands out there to consider, where each of them have their fair share of strengths and followers. Having said that, if you are currently on the lookout for a new gaming keyboard, but have not quite decided on which model to settle upon since you are not so much of a brand loyalist yourself, how about taking into consideration the Tesoro Lobera Spectrum mechanical keyboard?
The Lobera Spectrum mechanical keyboard will boast of RGB per-key illumination, 9 LED effect modes, instant recording capabilities for every key and USB pass-through. With this bad boy, you know that you are in for a treat, where your in-game performance can be a whole lot more dazzling on the outside since you are able to individually customize virtually any color, to any key. There will also be 9 different kinds of LED effects to choose from, such as dimming, full zone, trigger, ripple, firework, radiation, rainbow wave, and per key customized mode as well as 5 levels of brightness and 5 distinct profiles to store them. In other words, we are talking about endless combinations and possibilities for a truly unique configuration that cannot be found elsewhere.
Heck, even when you engage Audio Mode, you will find that the LEDs of each individual key will be able to dance to the beats and bass of your favorite tunes. Apart from that, there is Switchable N-Key Rollover/USB 6 Key Rollover which will allow gamers to switch between either mode, making the Lobera Spectrum immune to ghosting or jamming issues. The situation is further helped thanks to a fast 1000Hz polling rate that ensures no keystroke is missed, while instant game mode switching will take away worries of accidental key presses.
By far and large this is one of the more unique mechanical keyboards out there, where it carries the recommended retail price of $149 a pop as it arrives in Kailh Blue, Black, Brown and Red mechanical switches.
Not all displays are created equal, this is for sure, and for those who are keen to check out just how much more fashionable clothing can be with the advent of technology, you would most probably be keen to see these Volvorii shoes become reality. Right now, it happens to be an Indiegogo campaign, where it is a shoe that boasts of an e-Ink display alongside a Bluetooth module. The reason behind these implementations on a piece of footwear is this – one will be able to alter the way the shoe looks in terms of its external pattern with but a single press of a button.
Imagine hooking up your shoes to a smartphone that has a compatible app running on it, where you will then make your choice of available patterns in order to match whatever you happen to wear that day. While color panels are out of the question at this point in time, leaving us with just black and white choices, it ain’t too shabby, either. After all, it is not as though the entire shoe is covered in an e-Ink display, but just partially. The Volvorii shoes will come with a pair of fasteners (one in front, the other in back) so that you can bring the level of customization even further. A $249 pledge accompanied by a December delivery date are what you can look forward to if it is realized.
