It surely looks as though we are pretty keen on living out the wireless lifestyle, and have been for quite some time to come already. After all, having cables are a bore – they tend to get all tangled up, and can be pretty frustrating if you were to untangle them. While Bluetooth speakers are pretty common, the same cannot be said of Bluetooth music receivers, but the latter category of devices have been given a boost thanks to the Kinivo BTR200 Bluetooth music receiver.
What makes the Kinivo BTR200 Bluetooth music receiver so special? For starters, it will be able to upgrade your current audio and video systems thanks to Bluetooth capabilities, where you then wirelessly stream music from your library or favorite apps straight to your stereo or TV in a matter of seconds in order to enjoy instant music gratification. Not only that, this particular device will target those who frequently make use their mobile devices frequently to listen and stream music regardless of where their physical location is in the home.
The Kinivo BTR200 Bluetooth music receiver can be picked up for $39.99 a pop, although it has been introduced with a special price of $29.99 for a limited time only over at Amazon.com. The Kinivo BTR200 will feature an optical digital audio output that delivers higher quality sound and has been designed to send music crisply and clearly from your gear to your ear, making it stand out from the rest of the crowd. Apart from that, the use of optical digital audio ensures quality music playback since it remains immune to external electromagnetic noise which will interfere with the signal and distort your music listening experience. In addition, the Kinivo BTR200 Bluetooth music receiver will also boast of NFC pairing, ensuring that you get to enjoy multiple connectivity options in order to best suite your preferences.

At first glance, it looks as though this is one R2-D2 that has fallen into the hands of Islamic State (IS), taking into consideration how his polished dome has been lopped off its head. After all, beheadings seem to be rather common by the terrorist organization, and I am quite sure that the galactic empire has its fair share of human rights – or rather, droid rights violations as well. Having said that, the $49.99 Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone has not been tortured in any way, since it is meant to look like that.
If you are are a Star Wars fan and cannot get enough of the space opera, looking forward to the next instalment of the movie as it happens later next month, then you might as well go nuts with Star Wars merch from now on. The Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone happens to be a ThinkGeek creation and exclusive, but unfortunately for the rest of the world (meaning those living outside of the US and Canada), it cannot be shipped there no thanks to licensing agreements. Still, what is there to stop your friend from personally bringing it to you as a gift, right? One thing’s for sure, R2-D2’s cash cow has not quite run dry just yet, and he remains an extremely popular subject when it comes to monetizing the sci-fi series. Other than that, the Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone is as what its name suggests – a Bluetooth speakerphone.

Not all headphones are created equal, that is for sure. After all, some can be said to be more expensive than the others, and that is to be expected. Having said that, certain headphones developed do happen to be more special than the rest, and this is where the Twisters Headphones come in. The Twisters Headphones does not only deliver quality audio to your ears so that you can enjoy your favorite music while you are on the move, they also boast of a very special feature – by twisting them out, they end up as a high quality Bluetooth Speaker, now how about that? It is as though the Transformers are among us, don’t you think so?
The Twisters Headphones can be said to be literally a 2-in-1 deal which will function in the exact same manner of how they have been described as. When you ponder over this, it would mean doing away with the need for a dedicated Bluetooth speaker. Where sound quality is concerned, should you happen to be a huge fan of bass, then these are definitely for you! They are booming when they are residing on your head, and as you twist the headphones into Bluetooth speaker mode, the sound made up as absurdly loud, which might even make you wish you had listened to it in Bluetooth speaker mode right from the very beginning.
The Twisters Headphones also do seem to come with a rather tough looking design, so do not expect them to be as sleek looking as a pair of Beats or clean cut like Noontech headphones. Not only that, they also feel rather heavy, and each purchase will be accompanied by a 2 year warranty. Hence, the asking price of $59.95 does make it well worth the effort of picking a pair up, taking into consideration how this would be one of the more versatile headphones that you will ever end up purchasing.

Sometimes when you’re in a great work flow on your computer, you get annoyed at how long it takes to switch between tasks. There are keyboard shortcuts we can use to expedite certain things, but even then they don’t seem like they’re moving fast enough for what we want. While we haven’t gotten to the point where our minds can control our computers, it is possible for your computer to understand gestures.
While there are certainly some options out there like this already, Gest seems like a really neat way to work with your computer through gesture. This interaction tool will give you a new level of speed as it packs 15 sensors into each hand device. All that sensing means any hand or finger twitches will be read as commands, and you can program it to understand what all of your movements mean. It would be a bit weird to have little finger cuffs on for the first few times of using these things, but you likely wouldn’t even notice them after a while.
The palm strap and finger mounts are completely adjustable since everyone has differently sized grippers. It will take a little time to program this how you’d like, but this is said to learn how you perform common gestures over time. You’ll be able to point, swipe, flick, and grab at the screen for everything from typing to Photoshop. Getting two of these is going to cost you $350, or you can opt for one at an obviously lower price point.

How many people that you know pay for cable and actually use it to the full extent? Most of us use the internet to watch things on YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll (don’t lie to yourself). Of course, this means we usually have to watch on our laptops. If you want to stream things onto your TV, then you’re going to need a way to do that quickly and easily, and without losing any quality if at all possible.
The Nvidia Shield Pro is an Android TV box that will let you stream games as well as your favorite shows and movies in 4K Ultra HD or 1080p at up to 60fps. If you would prefer to hoard some media, there is also 500GB for you to utilize, but the liklihood is that you’re not going to get through every show or game you have saved. This uses the NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor, which is said to make this perform 25 times better than other popular streaming devices.
This also has a MicroSD and two 3.0 USB ports, and while it doesn’t come with a remote, it’s not a bad extra purchase, albeit a pricey add-on at $49.99. Chromecast is built-in, so iOS or Android games from your phone can be streamed onto your TV. You’ll also be able to use voice search and commands to make it easy to find what you’re looking for without much hassle. It’s likely in your interests to hook up a Bluetooth keyboard with this and get a stand so you can keep the box where you like, but that’s only going to add on top of the $360+ you’ll be spending on this setup.

Have you ever wanted to watch a show or movie with friends, but you all live in different parts of the world? The best you can hope for is getting on Skype and counting down from 3 to all hit the play button at the same time. However, connection issues throw the whole thing off, and make the distance between everyone even more noticeable.
We’ve seen tons of media streaming devices, but how many of them will let you watch in tandem with your friends? Cast by Genii is a wireless home video system and console that will turn your TV, projector, camera, computer, and mobile devices into smarter versions of themselves. This has three aspects which consists of the CAST box, camera, and an HDMI stick. The more displays you want to use, the more HDMI sticks you’ll need.
This works alongside an app which will connect you to tons of channels, let you do video chat, or have instant messaging overlay on whatever you’re all watching. You’ll be able to watch with up to 6 people in your friends and family circle, just like if you were having people over. The only cable you’ll need to worry about is the one that you put into the wall to power the CAST. This is going to cost you $299 for all three aspects mentioned previously, but you can buy more bundles and have it cheaper on the whole if you want a bunch of people in your friend group to be in on the action.
Available for crowdfunding on Kickstarter

There is something about the silver screen that makes life a whole lot more colorful and enjoyable, as some of us take to the movies to escape from the cares and concern of the world, while others see it as an expression of art, although more and more movies these days happen to rely on special effects rather than a solid story backing it up. Having said that, the place where you view the movie is equally important in getting the ambiance right, and Royole Corporation has hit the Royole-X right on the head with it being the first foldable smart mobile theatre device of its kind.
Sporting one of the highest pixel density displays for a device in its class, it will also be accompanied by stunning noise-cancelling headphones, a novel operating system that is known as the Royole-X OS and a unique foldable product design. In other words, the Royole-X is presented as an unprecedented theatrical experience that follows you just about everywhere, regardless of whether you are in a college dorm, at home, or on a flight. Not only that, the integrated video-audio design will also offer a brand new fashion to the wearable industry.
For instance, the Royole-X will adopt a leading-edge display technology which will allow it to carry the world’s highest pixel density display of 3300 PPI (pixels per inch), which is approximately 10X higher than current leading-edge smartphone displays. The Active-Matrix Organic Light Emitting Display (AMOLED) within delivers a high contrast ratio that is greater than 10,000:1, wide color gamut, microsecond level response speed and 24-bit RGB color mode. As for the accompanying AMOLED display, it will feature detailed optical and human factor design to ensure a truly eye-pleasing mobile theatre.
The unique form factor of the Royole-X enables the weight of the headset to be distributed more evenly away from the user’s nose, and both headphone and display can be folded to become one-piece when the device is not in use, ensuring ultimate portability and fashion.

Royole-X, the foldable smart mobile theatre
When we’re looking to see what time it is, we often just check our phones. Of course, our phones are not always constantly on us, so it’s nice to have a fixed point or two around the house that shows the time. We don’t want to have a generic wheel of numbers hanging on our wall though, as that’s what normal people do. We have to show that we’re edgy, nerdy, and interesting, so it only makes sense that we would chuck a bunch of money at a clock that has the same function a $5 version would, but fancier.
The Chromatic is a wall clock that will show the present time through different colored LEDs. It has 60 LEDs that have six different built-in animation modes to choose from. There’s pulse, which gives you a red hour hand, blue minute hand which pulses in seconds, RGB shows a green hour hand, blue minute, and red seconds, rainbow, which is all the colors with those not lit indicating the time, red alert being all red, traffic light, which has red hour, green minute, and yellow second hands, and crazy sunset, which will be a magenta hour, white minute, and a blue second hand.
This has a slotted hanger on the back, or you can use the fold-out stand to turn it into a tabletop display. It’s made of plastic and is powered by a CR2032 lithium battery. It can be powered via USB, and it comes with a 4 foot long USB cable with AC adapter for your computer, and a 10 ft. USB cable with AC adapter for wall hanging. This will cost you $49.99, and is sure to make your home look extra-neat to all of your house guests.

Gamers do take their hobbies very seriously, and this would also mean having the right kind of hardware to power their gaming habit. The thing is, with so many different manufacturers out there in the market, just which particular model would be the right one? Alienware’s Aurora has certainly impressed when it was released, and MAINGEAR does not want to be left out of the picture either, which is why they have announced the availability of the RUSH, which is an elegantly brutish gaming desktop that boasts of a tempered glass body, origami wiring, advanced cooling design, and state-of-the-art components.
Specially designed to demolish gaming benchmarks without the need for a traditional fierce gaming desktop look, the MAINGEAR RUSH will boast of the elegant side of gaming desktops via a tempered glass chassis that is highlighted by ultra-clean lines, expertly crafted wiring, advanced and customizable liquid cooling options, and artistically positioned components. It is truly a work of art as it has been individually hand-assembled, letting the RUSH delivers unmatched performance despite being placed under a load of stress with EPIC SUPERSTOCK Liquid Cooling.
MAINGEAR’s signature cooling system will boast of dual pumps to get that extra bit of reliability, and it has an easy to fill extra-large reservoir with a separate backup reservoir. All those are crucial to ensure that Intel’s Extreme Edition Haswell-E or Skylake processors will work seamlessly, accompanied by up to 3 NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X or AMD Radeon R9 Fury X GPUs, with half a dozen hard drive bays, and NVMe SSDs. Apart from that, gamers who want to love to live life on the edge always can maximize their system with MAINGEAR’s REDLINE, which is a factory tested overclocking service that safely pushes the system to maximum potential. And you have got to admit, the looks alone are a killer that is worth the entry price.

What happens when you more or less know that you are the one behind the self-proclaimed “best MMO gaming mouse in the world”? Why, you do not simply sit down and rest on your laurels, but rather, you actually pick yourself up, look over the shoulders to see who are your nearest rivals, and then continue moving forward at a faster pace so that you will well and truly leave the rest of your competition in the dust. Having said that, Razer’s Naga Chroma mouse that has picked up its fair share of bouquets ever since it has been released, has been refreshed to include a state-of-the-art sensor and Chroma RGB lighting.
The brand new Razer Naga Chroma will come with a true 16,000 DPI 5G sensor that does not have any kind of interpolation, in addition to the aforementioned Chroma lighting with its iconic 12-button mechanical thumb grid. With the Razer 5G laser sensor, this gaming mouse is capable of tracking up to true 16,000 DPI in down to 1 DPI increments. Not only that, one should take note that this is a significant improvement over a current industry standard of 50 DPI increment tracking, where the device itself boasts effectively no interpolation, and has been optimized for multi-display setups with ultra-high display resolutions, making it perfect ideal for immersive MMO gameplay.
Right smack in the middle of the Razer Naga Chroma would be its iconic 12 concave mechanical thumb grid buttons that boast of tactile, audible feedback, and it has been optimized specifically for MMO gaming. Each button on the thumb grid will ergonomically stand out in order to pave the way for blind-finding, letting gamers more easily execute commands. The Razer Naga Chroma will also be part of the Chroma SDK, and those who are interested can pick it up for $79.99 a pop, although those who happen to live across the pond will have to fork out more for it, where it retails for €99.00.
