Logitech Wireless Boombox for the iPad

Logitech seems to be doing a lot of wonders with wireless technology, like the Wireless Headset that I reviewed a few weeks ago.

Now they have the Wireless Boombox, which I also got a chance to try out. There are some portable speakers that produce some real kickin’ sound that can really rock a room. The actual specs are two 3 inch laser-tuned neodymium drivers for a rich mid range, two half-inch neodymium tweeters, and four two-inch passive radiators for some serious deep bass.

Even though this product has “for the iPad” in its name, this is really false advertising. In reality, this product will pair and connect with any product that is Bluetooth compatible. If it doesn’t connect wirelessly, then you can use the included audio cable and connect it via 3.5 mm aux jack.

These speakers have a rechargeable battery that is rechargeable, a NiMH battery that is good for six hours on a full charge. Assuming that you are carrying your Bluetooth compatible device with you, you can carry the Wireless Boombox on your shoulder like a ghetto blaster from the eighties. It also has a pop-out stand in the back so you can stand it up on a table or other flat surface.

You should be able to get the Logitech Wireless Boombox now for about $149.99 on the official site.

Sound ID SIX Bluetooth Headset

With the advent of the iPhone 4S Siri, there are probably going to be more people talking to their phone than ever before. You might as well get yourself a good Bluetooth headset like the Sound ID SIX.

The SIX seems to take a cue from the Jawbone with its clear carbon design. The one button to activate the Voice Menu is located on the top, and it allows the user access to VoiceDial, BING 411, Google Voice, and other services. It also has three microphones which is helpful to block out background noise.

Like other Bluetooth headsets, it comes with an application. The user can access EarPrint 3.0 via iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android, and it allows you to access the features listed above. it also supports a variety of third-party applications like Bing411, Google Voice, and other Facebook-friendly applications like Voice-on-the-Go, Vlingo, and Jott.

Also helpful on the app are the SMS Text-to-Speech for Android devices, and there is even a terrific “Find my headset” feature. This is when you hit a button on your mobile device, which causes a high pitch to emit from the SIX. I don’t recommend doing this while having it in your ear. I didn’t try that, but I did try out the SIX and highly recommend it.

If this is something that is your speed, head over to the official website and lay down $129.99 for it.

Gomu Star Wars Eraserland

Some of us collect stamps, others prefer bugs, but what about erasers? OK, so you might snigger at this particular hobby, but different strokes for different folks, right? If you (or your kid) absolutely loves Star Wars and want to collect as many other officially licensed items associated with the space opera, then surely you will be broke before you’re done with your task. Surely there is a more selective manner to do so – and you can always start off with something affordable, case in point, the $14.99 Gomu Star Wars Eraserland.

Coming in a stubby lightsaber box for added effect, it is filled to the brim with plenty of Star Wars erasers in their own unique way, ready to erase the existence of any other Sith that you’ve drawn on a piece of paper. There is a total of 8 unique Star Wars erasers, including 5 which cannot be found anywhere else. Since this is an officially licensed Lucasfilm product, you can purchase this with peace of mind.

Microsoft’s new video shows us what the future will look like, again

About a few years ago, I reported on a video that Microsoft made showing what the future could be like.

This is apparently the new version of this video. The video, which can be viewed after the jump, is half propaganda for Microsoft and the other half a realistic view of the future.

There is a definite emphasis on mobile technology being thinner, as the tablets and mobile phones are as skinny as credit cards. Considering that the new RAZR from Motorola is going to be the thinnest smartphone at 7.1 mm, I can easily see it going down from there.

About the only technology that I can’t see working now is this 3D and 2D integration. It seems like the people in the video can just flick their finger and some sort of hologram floats in front of them.

The one thing that I believe will be the future is that everything will be connectable. So if you have a meeting in a city where you just arrived, you will be able to look out the window of the taxi and see what building you will be meeting in the next day.

I also noticed that the little girl had one crowded desktop. That is the future right there.

So, what do you readers think? Watch the video below and leave a comment.

SofShell for the iPad 2 from Sofproducts

I have reviewed a lot of covers made for the back of the iPad like Bracketron’s Back-iT and the AViiQ Smart Case, and this SofShell by Sofproducts falls under that product category.

As its name implies, the SofShell goes for a soft rubber feel rather than a hard plastic or metal shell. It also has a unique ability of being transparent. You would be able to completely see through it if not for the interior case texture that keeps it on and makes it easy to peel off.

It “fits like a glove” and is able to reduce shock by 43 percent. Sofproducts also states that their product is “anti-slip”, which means that you could rest an iPad 2 with a SofShell backing on an angle that is 70 degrees, and it would not slide off.

I mentioned before that the SofShell has a rubbery feel, but it is not rubber, silicone, neoprene, or urethane. I’m not certain what it is, but it is medical-grade material that is hypoallergenic and latex free.

I reviewed the SofShell for the iPad2, which is not compatible with the first version of the iPad and is available here for about $49.50. You can get a Sofshell for the original iPad, as well as a SofShell for the iPad 2 with a SmartCover on the SofProducts web site.

Plantronics Gamecom X95

Some of you might remember our review of the Gamecom 777 from Plantronics, and I got a chance to try out the Gamecom X95 for the Xbox 360.

The purpose of the Gamecom X95 is so that Xbox players can go with wireless headphones. What happens is the wireless transmitter connects via USB to the Xbox 360, and then sends a signal to the headphones. It isn’t completely wireless, as there is a wire to connect the controller to the headphones.

The end result is more immersive gaming with 40 mm speakers, and it has specially designed earpods and headband. The design is as sleek as it is comfortable, since the designed earpods redistribute the pressure around the ears.

Other features include a volume control on the headphones themselves, not to mention a very cool flip-up microphone boon. There is also a mic-mute button that lets you know when it is on.

All in all, it lives up to its name of being an advanced stereo gaming wireless headset for the Xbox 360. Just to let you know, it is not USB rechargeable. In other words, you will need two AA batteries, that are included with the product. You can get the X on the Plantronics site for a price of $99.99.

Digimo Camera Concept

As you can tell by the headline, this is a concept camera. The Digimo has three cool features, and even one would be enough to sell it on the existing camera market.

The first is that it can split in two. This comes in handy for situations where you need to take a picture of something remotely. You can even see a picture of what you are taking, as there is an LCD on both halves.

The second feature is that it can do 3D pictures. As you might know, 3D pictures are taken with two different camera lenses. When both halves are put together, this camera can get you the 3D pics that you want, if you are into that type of thing.

The third feature is that the Digimo is very modular. It has an extendable telescopic leg that can reach up to 50 centimeters, and you can see the ball and socket connectors that can stand one half of the camera at an angle.

Sadly, this is not a Kickstarter project, where you can donate money to it and get one of your own. I would seriously give money to have one in my hands, but right now, it is only something for the drawing board. Please make this a reality, someone.
