Hoopla Digital reveals a brand new e-reader

The world of e-readers is not exactly one that sets the pulses racing, as there is not much fanfare whenever a new model is announced or released. In fact, you will not see any kind of annual model refreshes, not unlike smartphones where it ends up as a huge event that the whole world looks forward to. However, this does not mean that there is no value in e-readers. Children too, need to pick up the reading habit in order to learn as they grow, so what better way than to get them up to speed with Hoopla Digital’s latest e-reader?

The latest e-reader from Hoopla Digital will boast of specialized features that are able to present picture books and read-alongs, as it showcases content from Disney, HarperCollins, Lerner, Charlesbridge and Britannica including picture books like Pete the Cat and Fancy Nancy and read-alongs like Olaf’s Frozen Adventure and Disney-Pixar’s Coco, which is available in English and Spanish.

In fact, with immersive new e-reader technology integrated on this latest offering from Hoopla Digital, it enables graphics to appear just as it would in a physical book, now how about that? Jeff Jankowski, the owner and founder of Hoopla Digital, shared, “hoopla digital continues to invest in the experience we are offering our libraries and their patrons. Our new eReader shows our deep commitment to books and the experience we are creating for readers of all ages. We developed this eReader with feedback from librarians, patrons and publishers and created an experience that really celebrates the work of the authors and illustrators on our platform.”

Read-alongs on Hoopla will be accompanied by audio tracks that have been synchronized with the book, where text will highlight in red in-sync with the narrative audio. This makes it very helpful for early childhood education as well as second language learners. There is also a “Kids Mode” feature that allows families to search and access kid-friendly titles any time that they please.

Verse true wireless headphones from Erato

erato-verseWe all love living the modern day lifestyle, where everything around us is so much more convenient than what our forefathers had to live with. From wireless connectivity to virtually anywhere and everywhere which we go to, we are also able to enjoy an untethered lifestyle to boot. When it comes to music, the traditional pair of headphones simply will not do as these tend to get all tangled up in a mess even if you leave it alone, as though it has a life of its own. This is where wireless connectivity has plenty of advantages: you do not have to worry about wires getting in your way, and neither do you need to be restricted in your movement any more while enjoying your favorite tunes, especially the extra active folks. Erato’s Verse wireless headphones play such a role perfectly by boasting of graphene driver technology.

It does not matter whether users are commuting, exercising, or simply taking calls at the office, Verse is able to produce uncompromised sound quality through a wire-free, sleek, compact, and minimalistic design which is ideal for anyone who is always on the move. Making use of graphene is a conscious choice, allowing for the development of a thin and flexible 5.8mm driver which can amazingly reproduce a stronger, richer, and more accurate sound sans carrying around additional weight or resulting in distortion. Making use of such advanced material technology, Verse is able to perform extraordinarily well from deep bass to sparkling treble.

Tipping the scales at a mere 4.5 grams per earbud, which is roughly two dimes, you most probably won’t be able to feel that it is there in the first place. With SpinFit silicone eartips, these patented eartips will enable 360-degree rotation and fit the shape of your ear canal, allowing it to go in deeper and create a better seal and superior noise isolation. It is also rated at IPX5 waterproof, meaning it is sweat-proof for you to exercise away without hesitation. The Verse has around three hours of music and four hours of talk time per charge, and the charging case can hold up to four full recharges.

Expect the Erato Verse to retail for $149.99 apiece if you would like to live the untethered lifestyle from now on.

ANNKE ups home security ante with Nova Orion and Nova S

annke-nova-sIt has been said before that a man’s home is his castle. However, a castle is supposed to impart a sense of majesty and an impregnable fortress, and the latter is something that is sadly missing from the equation in many homes these days, judging by the amount of break-ins that we read about in the news each day. Having a home security system installed is important, and this would include making sure that there are adequate cameras in strategic locations placed. ANNKE has stepped into the fray yet again with its latest smart home security cameras, the Nova S and the Nova Orion, with the former being made available already while the latter is arriving soon.

Both the Nova S and Nova Orion are reliable and advanced 24 hours’ home monitors and assistants which will play nice with Amazon’s Alexa voice service as well as IFTTT in order to hook up to the rest of the smart home devices in the immediate vicinity. Among that, they will also boast of cloud service storage, being able to send push notifications upon sensing some motion within its range, remote monitoring capability so that you do not have to worry about the status of your home should you be located halfway across the globe due to your travels, a two-way audio smart home control, as well as 1080P clear night vision.

Being compatible with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant and the IFTTT service certainly delivers a far greater degree of control, since it can then interact with other compatible smart home devices such as temperature controls, lights, appliances and the most popular smart home devices from companies in the vein of Philips Hue and WeMo switch, among others. The Nova Orion bests the Nova S in two important functions, boasting of Smart Auto Tracking and Privacy mode. Any takers?

Occly reveals the wearable Body Cam Alarm System

When it comes to the issue of personal safety, there are several things that can be taken into consideration. While having a certain degree of knowledge concerning self-defense is always useful, why not go the extra mile by giving technology a chance to shine? Occly has come up with what they call the wearable Body Cam Alarm System, being the first of its kind from their product stable that will boast of a quartet of cameras which can capture close to 280 degrees around someone. This is not so much a security device as it is something that will allow a worker to enjoy additional employee safety and protection while they are going about their task.

The Body Cam Alarm System is able to continuously record an employee’s environment, compressing, encrypting and storing them on the Occly hardware right there and then. With Occly having already made inroads in different industries such as construction, railroad/transportation, hospitality and healthcare, the Body Cam Alarm System could not be released at a better time.

For instance, if there is an emergency that happens, all that it takes is a single press of the panic button, and the alarm will start to ring, while images, video and audio are sent instantly in real time to the Occly Monitoring Service. The same will also happen should any of the integrated sensors within the device itself be triggered. Another hardware capability of this unique piece of wearable technology includes GPS tracking, while Occly continues to work on an indoor location solution.

When the alarm rings, Occly’s Professional Emergency Monitoring representatives will receive all relevant information so that they can assess an emergency situation quickly. These are trained representatives, so they do know what they are doing. Right now, the Body Cam Alarm System is Bluetooth-enabled and operated using a smartphone with a cellular version being developed for a 2018 debut.
