HD Video Recording Monocular goes about its work in style

When we talk about a monocle, that is more or less a relic from a couple of centuries ago that was worn as a gentleman’s article. However, when you fast forward time to today, is there room or space still for a monocle? Apparently so, if it is the $249.95 HD Video Recording Monocular that you are referring to. This is one monocular which will be able to bring distant subjects into view as you capture all that it sees in high definition video. No doubt this is very different from the usual video recorders that we are used to seeing for sure.

Subjects of your choice can be viewed through the device’s eyepiece or on a flip-out 2.4″ TFT color display, depending on whatever floats your boat, while a single push of a button will kick off a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor which will capture video at 1080p resolution and 30 fps, with the added ability of capturing still images in the JPG format. This monocular’s coated BK-7 glass lens and roof prism will also be able to deliver sharp 8X optical magnification, alongside a 100′ field of view at 1,000 yards and precise manual focus adjustment from -5 to +5 diopters. All recorded content will be saved on a microSD memory card of up to 64GB in capacity, and you can transfer the recorded files to a computer via USB, or opt to view it directly on a TV via HDMI or AV outputs.

NEAR delivers innovative in-ground outdoor loudspeakers

If you have some additional dough to spare because of a windfall due to an inheritance, or you are a high flyer at work, how about dressing up your home’s gardens with some high end speakers? I am referring to NEAR with their innovative in-ground outdoor loudspeaker solutions which are suitable for luxury residential installations. The design of these NEAR products place a clear emphasis on security, long-lasting appearance and outstanding sound quality, helping charm just about every listener on the deck, patio, garden or watercraft.

Ask any upscale builders, home automation integrators and homeowners, and they ought to agree with you that there are benefits when it comes to installing purpose-designed music systems outdoors, and these tend to be located around patios and pools, in gardens and on decks so that outdoor activities are enhanced, not to mention making it easier to entertain family and friends. Typical installations speakers tend to be mounted under eaves or in other visible and vulnerable locations, but with the brand new NEAR IG series speakers, these can be partially buried in the ground, so that homeowners get to enjoy better sound performance, lower visibility and greater security.

The NEAR IG models happen to arrive in “omni-directional” designs, where these are able to radiate sound evenly in a 360-degree pattern, delivering a far more uniform coverage and better sound quality regardless of where the listener is. Normal outdoor speakers radiate sound in one direction most of the time, so this means listeners positioned near one speaker cannot hear the other channel. Apart from that, guests who are seated on one side of the patio might only hear the backup singers, and vice versa for folks on the other side as they pick up only what the lead vocalist is dishing out. NEAR’s omni-directional IG speakers solves such a conundrum, letting everyone hear a true stereo image and all the music on a recording.

Three IG full-range models are on sale, ($1,238/pair to $1,718/pair) with an optional in-ground 12″ in-ground subwoofer that goes for $1,599.

Seiko introduces Novak Djokovic Limited Edition Astron timepiece

Not all watches are created equal, this you can be sure of. The thing is, not everyone is able to afford one of those expensive designer watches, and will have to settle for something that is more within their budgets. Seiko does have its fair share of entry level timepieces, but this does not mean they do not cater to the mid-range and higher end market. In fact, Seiko has just launched its Novak Djokovic Limited Edition Astron watch, where this timepiece will be based on the new chronograph caliber that was introduced at Baselworld 2014 to great acclaim.

The new Seiko Astron GPS Solar Novak Djokovic Limited Edition is so remarkable that it is capable of adjusting itself to every time zone on earth with but a single touch of a button, which means regardless of where Novak’s game takes him, he will be able to have the exact time on his wrist. It is estimated that Novak’s 2014 global travel schedule might need him to adjust his watch a minimum of 60 times, but with the Seiko Astron, he does not even have to think about doing so, now how about that?

Apart from that, with its 8X82 caliber, there are two new functions thrown into the mix, namely a six-hour chronograph and an electronic function in the crown that paves the way for even easier adjustment of the secondary functions. Not only that, it is 30% smaller in size than the current 7X caliber, where this reduction is made possible thanks to a new advance in Astron’s energy-saving technology, as it enables the timepiece to hook up to the GPS network with a smaller antenna.

The Novak Djokovic Limited Edition sports a black ceramic bezel, an extra-strength silicon strap and the rose-gold tone of the steel case. The case itself will see Novak’s name and signature appear on the back, while each watch has its own serial number engraved beneath. Rolling out this November, there will only be 2,500 of these bad boys made available to the masses.

Razer Micro-Console is powered by Google Android TV

Razer might be a name that most of us are familiar with when it comes to high quality game accessories, but it seems that the company is starting to look elsewhere in an effort to expand their market. Razer recently announced plans to roll out a Razer micro-console where this particular new device will be powered by Android TV, where it will gain the ability to stream movies, music and other apps in order to deliver large-screen entertainment in your living room, although it remains true to its heritage by placing a strong emphasis on gaming instead.

Android TV happens to be an entertainment interface which enables users to check out and enjoy content on their televisions, in the comfort of their own home. With the Razer micro-console, one will be able to navigate using a special mobile application which is capable of operating from any Android tablet or smartphone. Not only that, you might want to clear that throat of yours, since voice control is also built into Android TV, so that having access to entertainment is a matter of muttering a few words.

Basically, Razer intends for the micro-console to enhance the gaming experience on Android devices, and hear what Razer co-founder and CEO, Min-Liang Tan has to say about the micro-console, “This is a console of the future. Built on Google’s incredible Android TV platform, the Razer micro-console incorporates not only hardcore and casual gaming, but music, movies and other entertainment and social applications, all on an affordable system.”

So far, there is no word on how much the Razer micro-console will cost, and neither do we have any idea at all on the kind of hardware specifications that Razer will throw into the mix. We do know that it will arrive in a shade of black that many of us are familiar with, and we will have to wait until later this Fall for an official release, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

The 360cam will let you capture everything there is to see

When we take photos, we’re only preserving one aspect from an experience. You can’t get the full scope of what a day at the beach was like if you’re only seeing a picture of the sunset and some waves. The same goes for taking video, as you only have a set amount of space you can capture on a screen.

If you want to get more than a picture frame’s worth of information in one shot, then you’re going to love the 360cam. This is a super high definition camera that will capture 360 degrees through 3, 185 degree fish-eye lenses. These are synced up to capture and stitch images in real time, so you won’t need to do any post work. You can use a MicroSD up to 64GB, and move files around through the Micro USB port.

Alone this costs around $349, and would be perfect for recording your memories on vacation, at festivals, and more. This is waterproof and comes with an underwater lens cup (goggles for your lenses) so your video or photos will be crystal clear without distortion from the water. This is very small, and can fit in the palm of your hand. Seeing that it has universal mounting capabilities, this could be used in a variety of hands-free ways. It has GPS to let you geotag your images, a gyroscope for image stabilization, 3 microphones, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. There are add-ons you can buy which will also allow you to live stream or monitor your home.

Available for crowdfunding on Kickstarter

Rugged All Weather Radio lets you rough it out

When it comes to consumer electronics, most of the time these devices happen to be pretty wimpy when faced against the elements. Of course, there are some devices out there that will be able to champion the cause for a rugged device like the Xplore XC6 tablet, but those are far and few in between. Having said that, if you love spending time with your favorite radio station instead of receiving visual input, then you would fall in love with the $169.95 Rugged All Weather Radio.

As its name suggests, the Rugged All Weather Radio is certainly one particular tough cookie. This all-weather AM/FM radio was specially built with rugged construction that resists water, dust, and shock, hence making it ideal for the beach, pool, picnic, jobsite, or campsite. Sporting a roll cage that will help offer protection of its switches, knobs, this 7-watt full-range speaker will remain up and running even when knocked over. It relies on the Japan Industrial Standards-4 rating to resist splashing water and dust, while a digital PLL tuner delivers superior FM reception with dynamic bass compensation for rich bass tones. There will be 10 station presets, dual alarms with snooze, and an adjustable sleep timer. In addition, there is also an auxiliary port for connecting an iPhone or Android smartphone alongside a headphones jack. When not plugged into AC power, it will run off half a dozen D batteries.

Adobe Ink and Slide makes sketching and drawing on your tablet easier

If you are an artist, you know that one of the biggest elements you’re taught when first learning how to hold a pen or paintbrush is control. You can’t set about drawing a perfect circle on your first go. However, once you do have some mastery over your tools, you start to notice the quality of what you’re working with.

If you prefer to work digitally, then you know how important it is to have a stylus that can do what you want it to. You can’t try to make thin perfect lines if all you have is a marker-sized stylus with a tip the size of your pinkie nail. Adobe is known for helping creative minds make the images in their head into a reality. The Ink & Slide is a stylus pen and digital ruler that will allow you to sketch or draw more naturally and fluidly.

The digital ruler will help you to get a straight edge on your tablet, which is a welcome relief, seeing that a regular ruler doesn’t always work out the way we want it to on a glass surface. There are a few stipulations with using this device though, as you’ll want to be connected to Adobe’s Creative Cloud and their draw or sketch apps to use this to its fullest potential. The only devices this is compatible with are the iPad (4th generation): iPad Air, iPad Mini or iPad Mini with Retina display. This is a $200 venture, which is perfect for Adobe lovers who are already immersed in software that will play well with this, but not so well for someone who its just starting out.

Available for purchase on adobe
