When it comes to headphones and earphones, there are many different models from which one will be able to choose from. The thing is, you might wonder whether a particular model suits you or not. Perhaps you have had some experience with LG’s TONE Active in the past, and have decided to settle for whatever LG headphones that roll out in the future. You’re in luck then, as the LG TONE Studio and LG TONE Free are set to debut at CES 2017 that is kicking off early next month.
Both of these happen to be the latest TONE wearables from the South Korean consumer electronics giant LG, and regardless of the model that you choose, they will bring with them the wonders of personal surround sound as well as hassle-free wireless charging capability.
First of all, the LG TONE Studio that carries the model number HBS-W120 is a personal wearable speaker that boasts of a quartet of speakers. Two of these will be full range on the top, while the other two would be vibrating on the bottom. This will result in a personal surround sound experience under different circumstances, such as when watching a movie, playing a video game or streaming music of your choice. There is also a Hi-Fi DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) which will further enhance sound quality as it recreates audio content in an accurate manner. Dual Play capability allows you to hook up a couple of LG TONE Studio wearable speakers, too.
As for the LG TONE Free with model name HBS-F110, this happens to be LG’s first wireless stereo product that will sport wireless earbuds. These wireless earbuds will juice up each time they are stashed into the neckband, making them a snap to tote around and are always at the ready to serve your musical whims and fancies.
There is no word on pricing details as at press time, but we think it will be revealed early next month.
LG TONE Studio and LG TONE Free ready to rock at CES 2017
When it comes to portable or wireless speakers, most of us would look for the model that is hardy in nature, being able to take just about anything and everything that you throw in its direction. Well, LG has a slightly different route this time around with the LG PJ9, where this wireless speaker is certainly out of the ordinary in terms of its design. After all, most of the portable speakers that are in the market require you to bring them around with you, or even hook them up to a carabiner. For those who use it at home, you leave it on the table. Not so with the LG PJ9 that is all set to debut at CES 2017 — this particular speaker will levitate, as though by magic — now how about that for impressive?
The LG PJ9 is certainly a mesmerizing wireless speaker in its own right, and the magic will happen when you place it over the accompanying Levitation Station. It has the ability to deliver high-quality audio, and at the same time offer a lasting impression thanks to its eye-catching design. It also has a looks that will certainly turn heads whenever anyone lays their eyes on it. It does not matter whether the LG PJ9 is used to play music, podcasts or different kinds of audio content, it will be able to do all of that seamlessly while looking fantastic — even in the outdoors.
Making use of powerful electromagnets that is included deep inside the Levitation Station, the PJ9 will be able to achieve a stunning visual effect of floating in mid-air, without the need for any kind of wire to hold it in place. Right smack in the middle is a 360-degree omnidirectional speaker that has a turbine blade-inspired design, delivering deep bass thanks to the subwoofer that is embedded within the Levitation Station. The LG PJ9 itself will also feature Dual Passive Radiator technology that can reproduce flush mid-range tones as well as crisp highs for enhanced sound quality. No word on pricing yet as at press time, but we expect that small issue to resolve itself when it is officially announced at CES 2017.
Technology is growing at an ever-increasing rate. While this is awesome and means that there will be a lot of advances in medicine, clean energy, and farming, it also means that it’s hard to keep up with all the toys, gizmos and gadgets. Crazy as it may seem, not everyone wants to throw away all of their electronics every year and buy the newest thing on the market.
If you fall under that category and are still enjoying your old speakers that don’t connect via Bluetooth, but sometimes wish that they did, the Etekcity Bluetooth Receiver will make what is old feel like almost brand new. This gives you up to 10 hours of 4.0 Bluetooth streaming on a full charge with a range of 33 feet. You’ll be able to use this for your home theater system, car stereo, or just your normal speakers for your TV or computer.
This easily adapts through A/V, RCA, and a 3.5mm jack. It was made to be portable so it can make any speaker system you come across Bluetooth compatible. The charge time to get it to full is around 2 hours, but thankfully you can use it while it’s plugged in. Obviously though, that will increase the charging time. You’ll be looking at paying out around $19 for this little device, but that is vastly better than paying for a brand new speaker system for all of your various devices.

When you’re looking to work out, you have to stay motivated from start to finish or you’ll just be going through the motions without any benefit. Everything from lack of sleep and improper nutrition to what clothes you’re wearing and how much water you drank that day will affect your performance. To get the most out of your pump fest, you need to make sure your body is ready and willing to deal with the stress you’re going to put it under.
Some heavy bass beats and lots of water will certainly help, which the HYDRA SmartBottle can provide. This is a multi function device that will not only act as a 20 ounce BPA free water bottle, but also a 5W Bluetooth speaker, LED light, and 4000 mAh power bank. The LED light aspect can be an emergency light, white lantern, and RGB color cycle, giving you the option to use it for mood lighting, illumination for a nighttime romp, or planking through a rainbow cycle.
On top of all that, this also has a built-in mic so you can use it as a speakerphone. No use in stopping your workout just to take a call, though the talking will add a level of difficulty. This is a new toy that will cost you $51.99, so it’s not something you’re going to want to spring for unless the gym is part of your daily routine. This comes in blue, black, grey, orange, and red, not that you’ll be able to tell either way if the colored LED is on.

Home cinema enthusiasts, 2017 is going to be a real exciting year for you. The folks over at LG have stepped forward to announce that they will be rolling out their very first compact laser projector that has been specially designed for those who have carefully crafted out a home cinema environment in their abode.

It will certainly go above and beyond the call of duty for the average home cinema viewer, as it complements its high level of performance alongside a degree of versatility in order for one to enjoy movies as well as TV programs — regardless of where they are, and it does not matter what time it is, too.
The LG ProBeam will boast of an advanced laser engine which can produce up to 2,000 lumens of brightness, letting you enjoy your favorite video content even if the room that you are in is filled with sunlight. Arriving in a slim, sleek design, this is one portable projector courtesy of its innovative I-shaped laser engine. It has a compact standing-type design, tipping the scales at just 4.6-pounds, making it the lightest Full HD laser projector in the brightness range of 2,000 lumens in the industry. The classic form factor would also make it a whole lot easier to blend in into any kind of situation.
Other features include the innovative Sound Sync Adjustment, letting you pair up the LG ProBeam with just about any Bluetooth audio product such as an external speaker or headphones. There is also the ability to take advantage of Miracast in order to project content from smart devices onto a large projection screen. No idea on pricing just yet, but we should be able to find out at CES 2017.

Do you love the Minions from the Despicable Me animated movies? Well, surely these dumb creatures have found a way to survive all these years as they are extremely resilient. Not only that, the main characters will also sport their own names for a greater degree of personalization. Stuart, who happens to be the mischievous Minion out of the whole lot, will now be able to keep an eye on your home (since he has but just one eye to begin with in the first place) in the form of the new Stuart Cam HD WiFi camera.
The Stuart Cam will offer fun and affordable video monitoring so that families are able to tend to what matters most, even when they are unable to be there physically. Originally developed by Tend, who is also the manufacturer of other award-winning smart home products which are powered by computer vision technology, the Minion Made Stuart Cam is a $49.99 device that is licensed by Universal Brand Development.
It is one of the cuter cameras to have around the home, and certainly not as serious as the other kinds of WiFi cameras that are in the market. You will be able to enjoy the benefits of secure, high-definition video alongside two-way audio talkback. Using the Stuart Cam HD WiFi camera is a snap, thanks to its simple plug-and-play setup that allows just about anyone, a minion included, to be able to get the Stuart Cam up and running in a matter of minutes.
Not only that, the Stuart Cam will also be able to deliver a personalized Pet Highlight Reel which will appeal to pet owners, since they can then enjoy a snapshot of their day, in addition to the ability to talk and interact with pets over two-way audio via the Tend app on any iOS or Android mobile device. Definitely worth the purchase if you would like to keep in touch with your pets while you are on a holiday.

The world of Virtual Reality (VR) is certainly catching on among the masses, and it is not difficult to see why. After all, modern day technology and advancements made in the department has allowed even smaller devices like smartphones to pack the kind of processing muscle that is able to help power a VR headset or its software. As for the Okularion, this is something else. The Okularion prides itself in being the first wireless mixed reality headset in the world
The whole idea of the Okularion is to ensure that the worlds of virtual reality and augmented reality will be accessible for just about everyone. In other words, VR headsets like the Oculus Rift might be out of reach for many, but the Okularion would like to buck the trend by being the best and most affordable mixed reality headset that one can find in the market at the moment.
This standalone wireless mixed reality (virtual reality and augmented reality) headset will come with an early bird pricing of $200 on Kickstarter, although it will eventually retail for less than $300 a pop. At that price point, you will be able to enjoy two controllers as well. The Okularion has been specially designed in order for it to enable the user to have freedom to experience AR and VR without any limits. Those who are interested can pick up the headset in standard and pro versions.
Just because it is affordable does not mean it lacks the latest, cutting edge technology and components. Do expect to see the likes of stereoscopic display with multiple adjustments, gesture recognition, and an AR camera which will be used to capture and track the real world thrown into the mix. Users are also able to create their own content for the Okularion, since it will roll out with the right tools in place from the get go.
Anyone interested in the Okularion?

You can pick up a new skill at any stage in your life with enough determination. Whether that’s painting, ice skating, or playing guitar, there’s no such thing as too old or too young to start learning. Of course, if you just want the fun of jamming out with friends without actually knowing how to play an instrument, that’s where air guitar, piano, and lip syncing come into play.
If you’ve decided that you don’t ever want to learn how to play an instrument and only want to stick to playing pretend, then the AirJamz will heighten your playing-but-not-actually-playing experience. This is an app-enabled Bluetooth toy that looks like a guitar pick, and will let you rock out to over 25 songs with up to 4 players at a time. Don’t worry, even if half of your friends only have iPhones and the other half have Androids, this will play nicely with all of them.
In addition to playing air guitar, you’ll also have access to 100+ instrument, laser, and synth sounds. This was designed with sharing in mind, so you can post your best or worst performances on Instagram and Snapchat for the world to see. The only downside to this fun toy is that is costs $39.99, which is a bit much to make your air guitar seem more real. Maybe $20 fun, but not $40 fun. That being said, no price tag is too high if you’re really dedicated to the craft.

Ever sat at your desk at times and stared into the sky, wondering just how your life would have turned out if you had decided to join the army or police force? Perhaps you could be an undercover agent for the government by now, being suited up to the nines and yet carrying a false identity as you infiltrate one of the world’s most notorious gangs, gathering crucial intelligence along the way. Having a video or voice recorder on hand would certainly be useful, and Q-See knows this. Which is why all of you spy wannabes out there might be interested to pick up the $99.99 QPen DVR by Q-See.
Specially designed for the busy professional, the Q-See QPen DVR will look like any other normal writing instrument at first glance. Specially designed with an elegant slant to it, this particular USB Camera Pen has the ability to snap 4MP still images or capture video in decent 720P resolution, which should be more than enough to provide ample evidence if and when the situation calls for it.
Underneath the hood of the Q-See QPen DVR lies 16GB of internal storage, which would translate to close to 1.5 hours of non-stop video recording or close to 14,000 photos. You can use it at school to record lectures, or perhaps stalk that crush of yours, while those in suits and ties will be able to get what has been shared or mentioned for reference later.
The QPen DVR will be able to transfer its contents to Windows or Apple-based computers, so there should not be any kind of incompatibility issues to worry about. Certainly this is one of the more unique spy devices or accessories in the market, not matter how ordinary it might seem to be. Just to be safe, you might want to have the QPen DVR work alongside the Button Pinhole video spycam. Each purchase comes with 3 ink refill cartridges and 3 replacement stylus tips.

When we’re kids, just about anything can be an amazing palace or rocket ship that will get you to space. The imagination of a child can take them anywhere, and they need little more than sticks and sand to come up with completely different worlds. When they get older, they usually want more tangible items like toys or tents to ground them in reality a bit more, but still have their own space for play.
If you don’t feel like building a treehouse so that your little ones can play Tarzan or Swiss Family Robinson, then the Treepod is going to be a great holiday gift. Probably not going to be able to use it until the Spring, but hey, less work for you down the line! This is a hanging tent that can hold about 500 pounds, and has a 5 foot diameter, making it a perfect play space for kids.
This weighs less than 10 pounds on its own, but will support those on the inside whether they’re going to roll around or take a nap. This will cost you $270-325, with additional costs for the stand or equipment to hang it from a tree, but it’s a nifty playhouse nonetheless. The time and energy spent would also be around the same for building a simple structure on your own with supplies and labor, so as long as its quality up to par, it seems worth the price tag.
