A smartphone is a smartphone, and so too, is a projector just that, although the world of convergence technology has seen the likes of Samsung make a move to integrate a projector into a smartphone a few years back. That did not prove to be a hit among the masses, but it still was quite a decent idea that never really took off since the final device did not exactly excel in its work. Enter a peripheral that might just make you love your smartphone all the more — the £19.99 Smartphone Projector 2.0 which will arrive in Black & Gold and Copper shades.
It does not matter if you are looking forward to your weekly YouTube shows or even shorts, such as the weekly dose of Honest Trailers, you can always enjoy having a blown up view with the smartphone alone — aided by the Smartphone Projector 2.0, of course. With the Smartphone Projector 2.0, you will be able to transform everyday YouTube videos into grand cinematic events, where it will also perform its task of projecting films from your smartphone onto the wall. This is made possible thanks to a high-quality glass lens with an impressive 8x magnification, and it itself is made from rugged cardboard printed to look like a retro projector. Since it arrives fully assembled, there is no need for any kind of construction. Pretty cool, yes?

When you need to get a new headset, you want the perfect cross-section between comfort, quality, price, and durability. There are more options than your brain can feasibly comprehend on the market, but the best idea is to decide what price range you’re willing to deal with, and read as many reviews as possible. There are some brands you’re going to recognize and trust, but if it’s not quite in your budget to spend $180 or more, then know that setting your sights lower doesn’t mean you’re going to miss out.
Take for example the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset. This is a USB peripheral that has 53mm drivers, 7.1 virtual surround sound, and a noise-cancelling microphone. Not only that, but it also has an inline sound card, memory foam ear cups with an extra set of Velour ear pads when you’re feeling especially fancy, and the microphone can be easily detached. It’s compatible for PC, Mac, PS4, XBOX ONE, and WiiU.
Needless to say, you would expect the price point to be higher for all these goodies, but it sits at around $84.99-99.99. This is completely dependant on what color headset you want to wear as options are pink and white, black and red, and gun metal. There are other options to check out, but this doesn’t have 4.5 stars for reviews pooling from over 2,000 people for nothing. It all just depends on how pretentious you want to be when you talk about brand and price tag.

There are watches, and then there are watches. Some of us would just like a functional timepiece that does nothing more than to tell the exact minute and hour, while others would prefer something around their wrist that makes a statement, such as “I have arrived” when they are among their peers. Others still, prefer a timepiece that not only looks good, but is also suitable for their rough and tumble lifestyle. Now, the Casio G-Shock collection has over the years offered tough-as-nails watches without sacrificing on quality and accuracy, although they are not the cheapest options out there, but neither are they out of reach as with luxury names like Rolex and the like. This time around, the folks at Casio have revealed a spanking new S Series Dark Metallic Collection that is slated for release this coming Fall.
Casio’s announcement of the new S Series Dark Metallic Collection will boast of an understated metallic sheen to your eyes, and these watches will be able to add it’s fair bit of glam to just about any ensemble, where it can also be easily carry into the holidays to pair with a favorite party look.
One will be able to take the pick of rich colors that are nothing short of perfect for the fall, the Dark Metallic Collection will include the GMAS110MC-2A in dark navy, the GMAS110MC-3A in evergreen and the GMAS110MC-6A in burgundy – which is reminiscent of riverside blue, lush meadow and dusty cedar within Pantone’s 2016 fall palette.

If you live in an area that sees a lot of sun, then you probably own at least one pair of sunglasses. Some like to be stylish and have multiples so they can coordinate with their outfits, but functionality and not spending copious amounts on many different pairs of shades can be just as effective. Of course, they don’t just have to be normal sunglasses that block your eyes from the rays of the sun. They can be far more…entertaining.
While you wouldn’t think of these sweet Zungle Panther Sunglasses as being anything more snazzy shades, they’re also bone conduction speakers, and have a mic so you can take calls on the go. It’ll be so discreet that people will think you’re talking to yourself all over again, just like the Bluetooth earpiece craze (which hasn’t fully gone away). We’ve seen plenty of these bone conduction headsets in the past, though nothing quite this streamlined.
The benefits of these headsets are that they are much safer as the open ear allows you to hear exterior sound, its built-in mic is noise-cancelling, and has four hours of play time. Since these are likely meant for a very specific group of consumers (9-to-5er’s who live in a sunny state that are only outside for a few hours a day), they are pretty neat and cost as much as any other nice shades would at $119. These are already funded through indiegogo, but are pre-order only, shipping in February of next year.
Available for pre-order on Indiegogo

When it comes to timepieces, there are three different categories. The first would be the functional one, where you do not have to spend too much money in order to acquire a regular timekeeping device on your wrist, while the second would fall under the luxurious range — one that costs a bomb, but is worth passing down to the next generation. Last but not least would be the tough-as-nails watches, and this is where Casio has long been an expert with their G-Shock collection. This time around, the spanking new Casio G-Shock Gulfmaster is touted to arrive with quad sensor technology, now how about that?
Also known by its model number of GWNQ1000-1A, this is a brand new model that will introduce Quad Sensor technology into its shell, which will see the addition of a water depth sensor to the watch for the first-time ever alongside the atmospheric pressure sensor (altimeter/barometer), temperature sensor (thermometer), and magnetic sensor for compass readings. Specially designed for coast guard officers and others who are extremely active at sea, this new addition to the Gulfmaster range is equipped to track changing ocean conditions and help users during intense rescue activities. After all, it would be a pity if the rescuer is in need of some rescuing, don’t you think so?
The Gulfmaster GWNQ1000-1A’s atmospheric pressure sensor will be able to help predict a sudden change in weather conditions, not to mention having its temperature sensor read changes in air and water temperature. The timepiece will also be accompanied by a magnetic sensor to help detect bearing, while the water depth sensor can measure an individual’s current depth under water. When they all work together, Voltron will not appear, but rather, the five sensor modes (altitude, atmospheric pressure, temperature, depth and compass bearing) can let the user assess changing ocean conditions in real time in order to swiftly rescue a person in need. All of the sensor modes can be displayed on the watch’s face, where a button is used to toggle between sensors on its side.
Expect the Gulfmaster GWNQ1000-1A to arrive in black with blue accents, where it will carry an asking price of $850 a pop from the beginning of next month onward.
