iQIYI QIYU VR II head mounted display

1iQIYI_QIYU_VR_IIThe QIYU VR II is a head mounted display (HMD) from iQIYI which recently debuted at CES earlier this month, wowing all those who took a look at it. There is one very good reason for this: the QIYU VR II happens to be the first of its kind in the world, being the only VR HMD that supports panoramic 8K (4320p, 7680 x 4320) video playback. This is an independently developed 8K Kiwi Player that can recognize VR content in different kinds of code formats, allowing it to play Ultra HD content of up to 8K in resolution.

Using such 8K video image rendering technology that is simply unique to the QIYU VR II, it will merge with the all-new upgraded 4K LCD fast-response screen in order to have it deliver a whole new Ultra HD video viewing experience in the form of a “portable and personal 8K giant screen cinema.” Viewers will not find themselves running short on video content, as it leverages on iQIYI’s TOP1 resource pool in China’s video industry. All that the user needs would be a decent Wi-Fi connection in order to gain access to more than 10,000 movies, over 20,000 programs with panoramic content, in addition to hundreds of 8K/4K videos that have been specially customized to play nice with the QIYU VR II.

With this, the user is able to enjoy the latest and most popular TV dramas such as “Nirvana in Fire 2″ or “My Huckleberry Friends,” while experiencing an adrenaline rush with blockbusters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 8K/4K glory. The QIYU VR II has also been integrated with the iMotion position and posture tracking device, being a high-precision yet low-cost device. It will make use of armbands, allowing the traditional VR control handle to be directly upgraded from 3DOF to 6DOF. Every single bit of motion information of an arm can be captured in real-time, letting the user have a richer VR interaction experience.

There is no word on pricing yet for the QIYU VR II, but it is certainly a step in the right direction for the VR HMD industry.

FIFISH P3 underwater drone

Most of us would think of drones as something that ends up as a luxury purchase of sorts. It is not really necessary, but it is still nice to own one. After all, snapping a sweeping, panoramic shot of a particular area from the skies always evokes a majestic feeling in the viewer if it is done right. The free flying drones in the air have certainly made their mark in the world of consumer electronics, where the market has already matured. However, there is a new way to explore the world around us, and this can be done through underwater drones. Shenzhen QYSEA Technology Co., Ltd. happens to be a leading underwater drone provider and they have recently revealed the flagship FIFISH P3 underwater drone.

Just how does the FIFISH P3 perform the moment it dives into the water? Well, Shenzen QYSEA would like to claim that it carries an amazing performance, making each underwater exploration journey a special one whether you are going to snap photos or capture videos of the situation. Left in the capable hands of an expert, the results yielded will truly be outstanding on a professional level.

The FIFISH P3 is powered by an Ambarella chipset, accompanied by a 1-Inch SONY CMOS sensor and a 162 degree FOV ultra-wide angle lens. This kind of combination is potent enough to let the FIFISH P3 capture 4K HD footage as well as 20MP photos while underwater. Not only that, there are also 4,000 lumens LED lights that boast of 8 adjustable levels of brightness, virtually guaranteeing that the user is able to capture far more detail even in dark environments. The FIFISH P3 is also touted to deliver true-color imaging with stability and reliability no matter how poor the existing ocean conditions are.

Users can also watch whatever the FIFISH P3 is looking at in real-time through a corresponding app, all at the touch of a button where those stunning underwater moments will be broadcasted to a variety of social media platforms including Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, WeChat. Sounds like a dream purchase, doesn’t it?

SteelSeries reveals the Rival 600 gaming mouse

Gamers are a very discerning lot, especially the more serious ones out there. Some of them would think that it is essential to find a particular brand whose products they are comfortable with, and then stick to that brand throughout their gaming years. Well, SteelSeries has certainly garnered its fair share of fans over the years, churning out quality gaming peripherals that continue to win people over. The latest member of the Rival gaming mice series arrives in the form of the Rival 600 that boasts of a next-level sensor system.

That is not all which is attractive about the Rival 600, as this gaming mouse will also arrive with customizable weight and balance options for up to 256 different combinations. Talk about going all out to please everyone! Being different from many of the other weighted mice that will use weights which stack in one location of the mouse, the Rival 600’s weights are strategically located in the sides. Thinking out of the box, this idea enables gamers to adjust the weight throughout the body of the mouse in order to balance the mouse’s center of gravity according to one’s grip and gameplay style.

The Rival 600 tips the scales at a mere 96 grams sans weights, and will arrive with eight included 4 gram weights for personal customization.The lightweight nature of the Rival 600 is attributed to the material used, where it was carefully crafted for functionality, weight reduction and extreme durability. It has left/right click buttons that boast of a revolutionary reinforced trigger system, enabling it to deliver the best clicks in gaming.

Lefties are left out of the picture though, as the Rival 600 happens to be an ergonomic right-handed mouse that caters to both claw and palm grips. A powerful 32-bit ARM processor resides underneath the hood, enabling gamers to save CPI settings, button remappings and macros and lighting effects on-board. Expect the Rival 600 to retail for $79.99 apiece if you are interested.

BoomBottle MM wireless speaker

When it comes to waterproof speakers, there are many different kinds of models that are available in the market. However, Scosche has had a pretty decent track record in the past with its offerings, and recently lifted the veil up from the all-new BoomBottle MM. The BoomBottle MM continues from the ideology of its predecessor, with a portable and cylindrical design being the base design, while offering sought after features and arriving in a refined shape. Not only that, Scosche has thrown in additional functionality and exceptional sound quality, offering an alternative option to active lifestyle consumers where Bluetooth speakers are concerned.

Knowing that sound quality is always something that any serious sound enthusiast takes into consideration before making a purchase, the all-new BoomBottle MM will arrive with not one, but a couple of six-watt speakers as well as a pair of 40mm passive radiators. These offer a full-range of crisp highs and deep bass tones, and all of them are carefully placed in an IP67 rated dust and waterproof enclosure. In addition, the BoomBottle MM also arrives with auto-sensing indoor/outdoor EQ in order to make sure that listeners will obtain the best sound quality all the time, regardless of whether it is on an adventure or taking a time out after a particularly gruelling trek.

Scosche decided to integrate its patented, multi-award winning MagicMOUNT technology into the BoomBottle MM. This enables their mobile device to be magnetically secured to the speaker, providing an increased peace of mind. Located at the bottom of the BoomBottle MM speaker would also be a magnetic surface, letting you attach it to virtually any metal surface that you like no matter the angle. A built-in bottle opener lets you get refreshed easily, too.

Other features include a military drop tested design, water-friendly buoyant construction, integrated side panel control buttons, dual-pairing capability, and an extended battery life of up to 12 hours of playback time.

HomeHawk HD Remote Home Monitoring System

Panasonic knows that there can never be too high a price to pay when it comes to obtaining peace of mind, which is why they have introduced a brand new mobile app-based remote home monitoring system known as the HomeHawk HD Remote Home Monitoring System. Part of the KX-HN7000 series, the HomeHawk can be configured as a single HD camera in order to keep watch over your front door, or to have it work in tandem with a maximum of 16 peripheral HD camera units that will be able to cover the whole perimeter of the home and yard.

After all, with data getting cheaper by the day, while bandwidth increases, modern homeowners would not find it too much of an issue to keep an eye out on what’s going on in their backyard whenever they are away on a business trip or a long holiday halfway around the world. The HomeHawk will be able to keep an eye on activities inside and outside the home or apartment, regardless of the time of the day (or night). It will also work great to protect package deliveries, preview front door visitors, or simply knowing just when your loved ones have return home safely.

Some of the features that make the HomeHawk stand out would be the main front door full-color HD camera that is completely wire-free and weather-resistant, where it will come with LED assisted lighting to boot. With an extremely wide angle of 172 degrees, it is able to cover both door sills top to bottom fully, while capturing all that goes on in the entire entry area from left to right. The ability to hook up to 16 optional HomeHawk wire-free outdoor/indoor weather-resistant peripheral full-color HD cameras also make it very attractive, and the benefit of 2-way audio with built-in microphones and speakers is also an added bonus. Any takers?

Matrix reveals the PowerWatch X

Most of the time, we would think that a watch is powered through one of three methods: the traditional button cell battery, kinetic energy, or solar power. Matrix decided to take the road less traveled with a no-less adventurous timepiece known as the PowerWatch X, allowing it to run on one’s body heat alone. It is starting to sound as though we are entering an era like the Matrix, where we humans end up as “batteries” for the machines. Still, Matrix’s PowerWatch X is something that boggles the mind, where it will be powered by the wearer’s body itself, which is made possible by a proprietary thermoelectric energy converter.

Make no mistake about it, the PowerWatch X was specially designed and built for those who have an adventurous streak to them. It sports an aircraft-grade aluminum body that ensures it remains nice and light, while having a purposeful bulk that will maintain its rugged look and feel. The wearable itself does not require any charging on the wearer’s part, and it will arrive standard with up to 200M of water resistance, which is something that other similar battery-powered fitness wearables offer. The beauty of the PowerWatch X? You do not have to grapple around with the hassle of annoying chargers and messy cables.

Whenever you do not wear the PowerWatch X, all data that it carries will remain stored in its memory as it goes to sleep. When you do decide to pick up the PowerWatch X and slap it around your wrist, it will turn right back on at where you last left off. Matrix claims that the PowerWatch X is able to last for up to two years in idle mode, now how about that? It comes with companion apps that will run on both iOS and Android platforms to deliver additional customization, tracking and insights. The PowerWatch X can be pre-ordered for $249 apiece, any takers?

FITT360 is a wearable camcorder that looks great

We do know how a camcorder has more or less gotten out of vogue for one very simple reason: our smartphones are able to do a far better job when it comes to recording video at impromptu moments, and it is a whole lot more convenient to lug around compared to a full fledged camcorder. Of course, camcorder sizes have shrunk over the years, but this does not mean that it is still easy to tote up and about. Samsung decided to take things one step further through the idea of the FITT360, which is a 360-degree wearable camcorder that will arrive in the market through Kickstarter.

After all, this wearable camcorder can be comfortably worn around the neck all day long, sporting an extremely light and portable design. Not only that, it has been ergonomically designed to fit virtually everybody while ensuring that it remains unobtrusive with its sleek neckband form. We love the fact that the FITT360 happens to be tough in its development, being rain-, snow-, heat-, and shockproof so as to endure whatever the user puts it through.

Featuring patented image stabilization, live stitching and streaming functionality, the FITT360 is able to open up various possibilities when it comes to tele-presence and life streaming scenarios. Having life logging in mind, the built-in GPS will allow users to keep their personal 360 video-logs within the companion mobile application. With said companion mobile application. FITT360 users can then preview and share videos via SNS in real-time, letting anyone know what you are doing right there and then.

With a trio of Full HD 1080p cameras that deliver 4K resolution images while capturing 360-degree surroundings in true First-Person-View, the FITT360 is certainly worth checking out as it is so easy to use. A full battery charge offers up to 90 minutes of video recording capability. What are you waiting for?

Verse true wireless headphones from Erato

erato-verseWe all love living the modern day lifestyle, where everything around us is so much more convenient than what our forefathers had to live with. From wireless connectivity to virtually anywhere and everywhere which we go to, we are also able to enjoy an untethered lifestyle to boot. When it comes to music, the traditional pair of headphones simply will not do as these tend to get all tangled up in a mess even if you leave it alone, as though it has a life of its own. This is where wireless connectivity has plenty of advantages: you do not have to worry about wires getting in your way, and neither do you need to be restricted in your movement any more while enjoying your favorite tunes, especially the extra active folks. Erato’s Verse wireless headphones play such a role perfectly by boasting of graphene driver technology.

It does not matter whether users are commuting, exercising, or simply taking calls at the office, Verse is able to produce uncompromised sound quality through a wire-free, sleek, compact, and minimalistic design which is ideal for anyone who is always on the move. Making use of graphene is a conscious choice, allowing for the development of a thin and flexible 5.8mm driver which can amazingly reproduce a stronger, richer, and more accurate sound sans carrying around additional weight or resulting in distortion. Making use of such advanced material technology, Verse is able to perform extraordinarily well from deep bass to sparkling treble.

Tipping the scales at a mere 4.5 grams per earbud, which is roughly two dimes, you most probably won’t be able to feel that it is there in the first place. With SpinFit silicone eartips, these patented eartips will enable 360-degree rotation and fit the shape of your ear canal, allowing it to go in deeper and create a better seal and superior noise isolation. It is also rated at IPX5 waterproof, meaning it is sweat-proof for you to exercise away without hesitation. The Verse has around three hours of music and four hours of talk time per charge, and the charging case can hold up to four full recharges.

Expect the Erato Verse to retail for $149.99 apiece if you would like to live the untethered lifestyle from now on.
