Pyle knows that some of us de-stress through singing — and karaoke is a very effective way of getting things done that way. However, not everyone has the time and budget to spend at a karaoke bar or room. Apart from rental of the room, you would also have to fork out more money for overpriced booze and snacks to keep those karaoke sessions going. Why not do things from the comfort of your own home with the likes of the Pyle Karaoke Vibe?
The Karaoke Vibe is a new all-in-one sound machine, where it even arrives with an integrated LCD display that offers hours of karaoke fun. Being a manufacturer of home and pro audio equipment, the Karaoke Vibe is a beast. This 400-watt mobile party system will boast of an impressive high-powered speaker that delivers the wonders of continuous sing-a-longs. Thanks to an integrated 7” monitor as well as button control, users are able to view words and song information straight on the unit without having to hook it up to an external monitor. This means less stuff for you to lug around, too.
The Karaoke Vibe will be equipped with portable carrying handles and wheels, making it a snap to transport around — be it to or from parties and events. This 10” woofer will be accompanied by a trio of 3” Piezo Tweeters, ensuring that the Karaoke Vibe will be the perfect system that the aspiring DJ or everyday singer can enjoy. It even features an integrated VHF wireless microphone system and remote control, letting it be a snap to use from a distance. Users are able to play music directly from any Bluetooth device, USB drive or through the integrated FM tuner.
Not only that, the Karaoke Vibe features a built-in USB port that will help your connected devices remain charged as music is played back. The asking price for this party animal on wheels? $179.99 a pop.

Klipfone has looked to an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign in order to raise the necessary amount of dough for its innovative Bluetooth headset. This particular Bluetooth headset comes with a patented form-factor which enables it to clip directly onto smartphones, ensuring that it is easily accessible at all times without missing a beat.
According to Raj Kumar, “In the recent years our smartphones have become flooded with videos, video calls, and other content. Yet device makers have failed to innovate a suitable form-factor, relying mainly on traditional headsets and headphones, which are hard to find unless you wear them all the time. For most of us, when we want to watch videos, make video calls, or look up data on the phone’s screen during a call, our headsets are nowhere to be found or our ear buds are a tangled mess in our pocket. We have designed the perfect solution: a sleek Bluetooth headset that can be clipped onto the smartphone itself, ensuring that it never gets lost, yet is always available at a moment’s notice.”
This particular idea of a wireless headset that can be toted around on a handset is certainly well within the domain of Klipfone, as they carry a portfolio of patents alongside an exclusive license from Khyber Technologies Corp. This particular headset comes with a USB connector that has been integrated on its end, allowing it to plug directly into a USB socket so that it paves the way for cordless charging. This particular unit will ship with an AC adapter/charger alongside two USB ports. With the crowd-funding campaign kicking off in the previous month on Indiegogo, it intends to begin building a community of early-adopters. Those who are early in backing the units will receive theirs sometime this fall, and the public launch is tipped to happen when winter rolls around.

Razer is a name that is synonymous with quality gaming hardware, and it does not seem as though the company is about to slow down in its development of new peripherals anytime soon. Razer in a sense follows Apple’s footsteps by offering updated versions of an existing peripheral without any change in the name. This works great in the long run, since you do not need to keep track of the numbers (unlike the Samsung Galaxy S series which is about to embark on the 8th generation — it is simply nuts!).

The Razer BlackWidow V2 will deliver with the best tactile switches thanks to the Green and Orange variants, in addition to the Razer Yellow switch. This linear and silent design will feature reduced travel distance so that keys can be pressed faster than ever before. Not only that, the new switch’s feel and properties would cater for FPS and MOBA players who tend to press select keys thousands of times with each gaming session. The rating of 80 million keystrokes is certainly more than welcome!
Other features of the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboards will include individually backlit keys, customizable lighting features, custom settings and lighting profiles which are integrated into popular game titles. Expect it to retail for $169.99 a pop.

Polaroid is a name that is often synonymous with instant photos, and the company has managed to make a relatively successful transition to the digital era. Of course, no one would think of a Polaroid when it comes to purchasing a professional digital camera, but an instant digital camera? Polaroid has gotten that down to an art. The Polaroid Snap Touch is a good example last year, but this year would see yet another model released — the Polaroid Pop instant digital camera.
The Polaroid Pop instant digital camera delivers a modern take on the classic Polaroid instant print camera, bringing with it the wonders of an instant print format in 3” x 4”, while merging it with a sleek, modern design.

The Polaroid Pop will make use of ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology, allowing users to be able to automatically print full color photos in the iconic 3” x 4″ format alongside the Polaroid Classic Border Logo.

It sports a 3.97” touchscreen LCD that helps you to frame shots, and going through the camera’s menu is also a snap.
The Polaroid Pop comes with a 20MP CMOS sensor alongside dual LED flash, ensuring that all shots are of high quality, while image stabilization would translate to a far lower number of shaky images. Oh yes, did we forget — the Polaroid Pop has a Full HD video recording option, and all images and videos are stashed on a microSD memory card — with a maximum storage space of up to 128GB.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity enables the Polaroid Pop to hook up to a mobile device easily, turning the camera into an instant photo printer too. A trio of color modes are available: black and white, color, and vintage sepia.

When it comes to action cameras, there are dime a dozen models out there alongside flagships from GoPro — which is somewhat akin to the number of drones that are popping up left and right all over the place. Well, if you would like to find an action camera that is different from the rest, you might consider the all-new ACTIV 360-degree camera from Vyu360. Not only is the ACTIV compact in its form factor, it is also waterproof — which would come in handy for many a situation.
This wholly new 360° camera known as the ACTIV can be considered to be the smallest waterproof action camera that is available at this point in time. After all, the new generation tends to take on more risks in terms of showing off their lives online. At times, it does verge on the suicidal, such as climbing up to places that are normally off limits before shooting a selfie. Maybe being in water is slightly safer, with the ACTIV in tow.
Of course, this does not mean you perform crazy stunts at a waterfall or by the ocean where you are not familiar with the terrain. Rather, the ACTIV is the ideal companion when you would like to record your whitewater rafting adventures, or perhaps would like to bring back memories of recent picnics in order to share with family members and friends.
With the ACTIV, Vyu has thrown in specially engineered panoramic optics, thanks to the presence of two 8MP sensors. This potent combination ensures that glare is prevented, and neither will there be any kind of unwanted distortion while you go about capturing Ultra HD videos and photos in 360° fashion. The Vyu360 ACTIV will come with an asking price of $349 a pop, making it an ideal tool if you would like to get wet and wild while capturing the entire experience.

Rather, it should even increase all the more. Amazon Echo is one of the most successful models of implementation, being the first smart home hub that hit the market. Vobot has decided to take advantage of the open platform known as Alexa (by Amazon), making use of AVS (Alexa Voice Service) and ASK (Alexa Skills Kit) as a third-party developer in order to deliver voice experiences for the Vobot Clock.
