Sometimes your groove is thrown off when you’re dancing or running. So long as you can find the beat of the music it’s pretty easy to get back on task. However, another element such as lights that pulse with the song can go a long way to help you stay in the loop. Normally that’s only something you would experience at a concert or night club, but what if you wanted it while on a nighttime run?
The IGLO Pulse is a pair of headphones that will illuminate with the beat of the music. Not only would this be an added fun factor, but if you’re biking, running, or just taking a stroll at night, these will help improve your visibility. This fits into any standard 3.5mm jack, and has a built-in microphone for taking calls. You can choose between bright blue or green for the color of the light, and it will cost you close to $30 for the pair.
The only possibly challenging aspect of this is how you might be temporarily blinded by such a bright light coming into your field of vision when you move. Looking on the more positive side, untangling this in the dark would be a breeze, as you can easily see where everything goes. Not only that, but bunching this up in your hand when it’s still plugged in would make it easier to see the lock on your door, or where you may have dropped your keys.

Iglo Pulse Headphones add another element to your music
Some of us are pretty happy listening to our favorite music right from a generic pair of headphones itself, while others would prefer to have a high quality pair with a name that can be trusted, such as Beats or perhaps Klipsch. Having said that, if you have (plenty of) money to burn, then you might want to seriously consider the $32,000 Immersive Audiophile Pod.
The Immersive Audiophile Pod happens to be an acoustically optimized pod which creates an immersive audio experience that can be heard as well as felt, where this particular pod comes with five different speakers that have been built into the ceiling that boasts of separate tweeters, midrange drivers, and a central subwoofer, resulting in the creation of frequencies down to 16Hz. Such would be sounds humans are unable to hear, but they can feel through the vibrations that are transmitted by a structure-borne membrane within the backrest. You can equate it to sitting within a 3 1/4′-diameter speaker, as the pod will then resonate crisp sound regardless of the volume level while keeping out background noise.
There is also a specially developed six-channel amplifier that has an integrated digital signal processor which will enable independent regulation of the high- and mid-range speakers and subwoofer, so that precise customization of sound is achieved. Each purchase comes with a 16GB iPad that will rest within a swiveling anodized aluminum mount so that you can enjoy your favorite content from the Internet or your personal music library, whereas the integrated RCA ports would pave the way for one to hook up to an external audio source. Specially handcrafted in Cologne, Germany, the pod oozes with luxury thanks to an aniline-dyed leather exterior, plush microfiber upholstery, and a stainless steel base which rotates the pod up to 350°. By far and large a worthy addition to anyone who wants to spruce up their living room with something artistic.

Have you heard of Reshape before? If you haven’t, well, here is an opportunity for you to check them out – they happen to be an innovative online video training company that will hook up people with top health and wellness professionals live via TV, and this time around they have introduced a new state-of-the-art device which is able to transform any kind of TV into a Beyond Smart TV alongside a 1080p HD webcam, all thanks to the presence of the TVPRO.
Just what is the TVPRO exactly, you ask? Well, TVPRO happens to be the first intelligent interactive media player that was specially designed to offer the same kind of intuitive features that one experiences on the computer and smartphone right to any TV. It was specially developed by the founders of Reshape Sam Haginas and Beau Haginas, who happen to be former athletes themselves and are currently entrepreneurs in technology and digital media. The creation of TVPRO for the Reshape Platform was meant to be a way to bring a personalized and interactive training experience to your home, live through the TV set.
Beau Haginas said, “When we came up with the concept for Reshape, we wanted the entire platform to be utilized through the TV, because having a live interaction with someone on a small tablet or phone really doesn’t have that live feel. We quickly realized that there was not an efficient solution that was capable of bringing live video communications to the TV. TVPRO truly makes any TV Beyond Smart with live HD video conferencing and an open Android platform providing full web browsing and limitless entertainment options.”
The TVPRO is no slouch either when it comes to performance, as it boasts of a quad-core processor and full 1080p HD webcam, running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean that would mean you can have just about all of the latest content from the Google Play store. It will also be accompanied by a dual-sided, full QWERTY keyboard air mouse remote so that you can control your TV in the same way as that of your computer. TVPRO would allow users to Skype with family, to hangout with their friends or Reshape with professionals, all in the comfort of your living room. The asking price? $169 on Kickstarter, with the first 500 backers to receive a discount at $139, shipping included.

The days are getting longer and warmer, and thoughts have turned towards the summer. Time to start unpacking your bathing suits and flip-flops, and start planning for some long and lazy beach days. I love everything about the sea, well, almost. Sometimes, my day of relaxation gets a little annoying, while I swim, (or doze off on my beach towel) I worry about my wallet, phone and car keys… I worry they’ll be lost, or damaged by moisture, sand, or worse.. swiped by a criminal who could care less about ruining my perfect day.
So how do you take everything you need with you, and still keep it safe? Check out the Beach Vault. A nifty little plastic bucket, with a twist… a real twist! The bucket has been designed to screw into the sand, through the included beach towel, and the lid incorporates a rubber O ring to help prevent water and sand from getting to your stuff. Once “installed” the Beach Vault also hides your valuables from view, and even keeps your towel from blowing away.
The Beach Vault was a Kickstarter project that did NOT make its goal, however the inventors of the Beach Vault are still intent on bringing it to market. They already have in place a manufacturing company to make the capsules, and if their funding goals are met, you could still have one in your hands by summer, if you want to watch the video, or buy/invest in the around 30 dollar Beach vault, visit thebeachvault.com, and don’t forget your sunscreen.

Forget about using digits to tell the time, you might want to jump aboard the new and refreshing method of doing so with the $79.99 LED Word Clock. This is one particular timepiece that you might be interested in getting for your home, as it ditches the conventional wisdom of using an analog clock face or digital typefaces to inform you of the current time, relying on good old fashioned words instead. Sure, it is going to take a wee bit longer to decipher just what the existing time is, but there really isn’t any way to place a price on style, is there?
The LED Word Clock, as its name suggests, displays the time as text. Setting it up is a snap, and not only that, it is also extremely easy to read, and is way more fun to have at home as well as at the office. Forget about the standard issue pair of hands or a digital display, the LED Word Clock will rely on bright white LED light to let you know whether it is time for work or otherwise. Take for instance, the time being 10:55, the LED clock will then blurt out, “It is five minutes to eleven.” That is pretty neat, don’t you think so? It will need to remain connected to a power outlet at a nearby wall though, since it does not run on battery power.

When we choose a pair of headphones, we want something that can be used for an extended period without getting a headache. During the colder months, we need something that can go beneath all of our layers, but can be removed easily enough if someone starts talking to us, or we need to listen to exterior sounds. Normally this is not such an easy task, as the cables are run underneath everything or tucked into a hat.
Instead of removing your headphones and having to lose some of your heat to put them back in or on, it might be better to use a pair that were made to keep you warm. The Noisehush Bluetooth Earmuff Headphones with Mic will keep you toasty, looking stylish, and will allow you to listen to music or take calls on a whim. Not having to fiddle with cables is always a plus, especially when it’s chillier than you’d like outside.
This is made of 100% wool and genuine suede, and has 27mm neodymium drivers that will give you crisp audio. The control buttons are on the top of the headband, which will make it very easy to change the volume, answer a call, record a voice memo, and more. It charges via USB and can play music for up to 8 hours or provide 10 hours of talk time on one charge. This is more of a Fall/Winter purchase, but it does cost around $90, so maybe it’s something to save up for?
