New Sony BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV range priced, now available

Are you on the lookout for a brand new TV? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would be pleased to know that Sony has announced its brand new range of Sony BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV collection — alongside its pricing and availability, of course. This would be Sony’s first large consumer OLED TVs, where they boast of unparalleled black levels alongside contrast, a brand new Acoustic Surface sound technology, all packed into a unique design.

The BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV will be made available in stores from the beginning of next month onwards, and are already on display at retail stores — especially at Sony Square NYC, which happens to be a showplace for the latest when it comes to Sony entertainment and technology based in New York. The XBR-A1E will come with a unique combination of the superior picture quality of OLED that is powered by Sony’s 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.

It will be accompanied by the world’s first Acoustic Surface sound system, as well as an edge-to-edge stand-less form factor. Your eyes will be treated to more than 8 million self-illuminating pixels, enabling the BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV range to deliver a significantly enriched visual experience alongside unprecedented black levels, rich and lifelike color, dynamic contrast, blur-less image and a wide viewing angle. With the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme running at its heart, it can further extend the capability of OLED in order to deliver an exquisite 4K HDR picture.

The XBR-77A1E which is a 77″ class TV does not have its pricing details determined as at press time, while the 65-inch XBR-65A1E is going for a rather hefty $6,499.99. Those who have a smaller budget can always consider the XBR-55A1E, which is a 55-inch model that will cost $4,999.99 a pop. Any takers?

G-SHOCK from Casio reveals new Akazonae-Inspired MR-G

Fancy getting a new timepiece, now that your current one has started to lose its lustre, or needs some maintenance to get it up and running at optimal levels? Casio might have the answer for those who have a Japanese slant to things in the form of the latest G-SHOCK model, which would be the Akazonae-inspired MR-G. This luxury timepiece will boast of coloring that can only be found in traditional samurai armor, and nowhere else.

The latest color addition for the men’s luxury MRGG1000B timepiece that is inspired by the red Akazonae coloring, and this particular color did symbolize rank and valor amongst traditional Japanese military commanders of yore. Paying homage to G-SHOCK’s Japanese heritage and strength, this brand new timepiece will boast of the colors that are found in elite samurai armor, sporting a black titanium bezel as well as band, coupled with red lettering and gold IP accents that provide it with an ultra-refined look alongside the toughness that G-SHOCK is famous for.

Some premium features include a titanium case and band, boasting of a diamond-like carbon coating and sapphire glass crystal that deliver outstanding scratch resistance and durability. This particular model comes with GPS capabilities to boot in addition to G-SHOCK’s Multi-Band 6, and works under the guise of GPS Hybrid Atomic Timekeeping technology that will be able to deliver accurate timekeeping just about anywhere you are. This is made possible via the receiving of GPS satellite signals or terrestrial radio signals from up to six transmitters located around the world, based on one’s location and environment. There is also Tough Solar technology that ensures stable operation even when power-hungry functions are used.

All models will come with standard G-SHOCK technology such as shock resistance and 200M water resistance, a latitude indicator, airplane mode, dual dial world time (40 time zones, 27 cities + UTC), an LED super illuminator light, neo-brite luminous hands, daily alarm, day/date display, 1/20th second stopwatch and a countdown timer, with an asking price that some folks might choke at — $3,000 a pop.

The Night N’ Day Mechanical Globe teaches practical knowledge

You can never know what information is going to be relevant to your life until you need it. Our parents hound us to pay attention in school because every ounce of knowledge might be the thing that leads us to success in the future. That being said, schools don’t teach us everything we need to know about life, and in all honesty, they never could.

If you want to make sure your kids are learning information that you personally find important, then it’s your job as their guardian to teach them. This Edu-Toys Night n’ Day Mechanical Globe will help parents who are interested in clocks and calendars give their children a visual guide as to how things work. This is a real solar time rotating globe that acts as both clock and calendar, turning to show you where people on the earth are experiencing sunrise, sunset, and twilight times.

This is very easy to set up, is 11” in diameter, and won’t take up much space standing only a little over a foot tall. It even adjusts for seasons! This will cost you around $127, but for education it would certainly be money well spent. In addition to that, knowing when and where you are on the globe is helpful, especially if you ever have to coordinate with people on the other side of the world for meetings and have difficulty remembering when they are.

The Ambie Ear Cuff Earphones – don’t tune out completely!

Some days we have too many thoughts running in our heads. The things we have to do at home, errands, any loose ends that were left at work, what we’re behind on for our personal goals, visiting family, friends, the fact that we should be taking a more proactive stance on our health; it all gets to be too much at times. Music can match our mood, and it can also drown out the thoughts of what you need to do and put you in the present moment.

The downside to listening to music is that we often turn it up so high that we can no longer interact with the world around us. If you’re out in public while listening to tunes, you might be in danger and can’t notice because your ear buds are drowning out all the sound. These Ambie Ear Cuff Earphones will let you be in the moment both by letting you hear the music that grounds you, as well as exterior noises.

Aside from being a cuff that wraps around your ear, these function like your standard headphones, with a mic for taking calls, and inline volume and playback controls. They don’t come cheap at $110, and you’ll have your choice of black, brown, white, orange, blue, or green. The specs seem reasonable, but since this is intended for being present both in your music and the outside world, you’ll have to be wary of how loud they are lest you want others listening in.

Como Audio Solo Wireless Speaker keeps all your music at the ready

We have several different sources from which we get our music. There’s Internet radio, the actual radio, music downloaded on our phones, and computers. When you’re at home, you have access to all of these options, but the manner in which you listen to them is normally stuck to specific devices. We want our world to be as connected as possible, so it would make sense that we would want a speaker system that will let us access whichever option we want, whenever we want.

The Como Audio Solo Speaker could be classified as a radio, but it is far more than that. This is a smart speaker that has a wooden case that’s nearly a half-inch thick with a 3/4” soft dome tweeter and a custom 3” long-throw, 4-layer voice coil woofer with an oversize magnet. There is also a 2.8” TFT color display so you can always see the album art, artist, and song information regardless of what channel you’re listening through.

There are two versions of this speaker, with this $299 version being the smaller of the two. The Duetto does the same, but more of it, and has a $399 price tag. This is available in piano black, white, hickory/black, or walnut/black, and yes, the color does affect the price. If you’re feeling saucy, you can buy multiples and sync them so that you can have the same music playing all over your house during parties.
