ROCCAT Skeltr integrated smartphone and keyboard combo

It was just yesterday that we took a look at one of ROCCAT’s latest releases, and that particular model came in the form of the ROCCAT Nyth MMO gaming mouse. Well, it seems that the folks over at ROCCAT are not quite done with yet another piece of gaming hardware for the masses, where this time around, it would not be something as straightforward as an ordinary gaming mouse, but rather, we are talking about the ROCCAT Skeltr integrated smartphone and keyboard combo.

I am quite sure that this will be the first time for many of our dear readers to see the ROCCAT Skeltr, since it is truly a first of its kind device, and holds true for us as well. This ROCCAT-invented, fully integrated smartphone and keyboard combo will be able to bring together social interaction as well as gaming into what ROCCAT deemds as “perfect balance”.

ROCCAT claims that life goes on even as you indulge in your favorite gaming title for a particular session, and more often than not you might come into distractions such as incoming phone calls as well as instant messages flooding your handset as the rest of the world makes an attempt to get into contact with you. This is where the ROCCAT Skeltr comes in then, being the answer to a world where gaming and interaction cross paths with one another, while you make use of a second-screen as part of a tool in the game arsenal.

The feedback-built Skeltr is a Bluetooth compatible device, where it opens the door for smooth visualization of vital PC data to your smart device. It will enable gamers to enjoy their handsets as a highly interactive compliment to the game that one is currently playing, not to mention you get to use your keyboard for easier and faster communication compared to a virtual keyboard on a smartphone.

Neptune Pine smartwatch begins to ship

When it comes to the world of wearable technology, it has been broken down into two different categories – the smart glasses as well as the smartwatch. We have seen the likes of the beautiful Moto 360 where the latter is concerned, and it definitely is a wonder to behold regardless of the angle where you look at it from. However, smart glasses tend to fall back more on the Google Glass so far. This time around, however, we will be looking at the Neptune Pine smartwatch, where the first round of such smartwatches have already been shipped to Kickstarter backers.

It certainly is good news, of course, after a massive campaign success, considering how it has managed to pick up more than 2,800 backers along the way, in addition to having $800,000 pledged for the project. This has shaped up to be a high quality product that will merge untethered connectivity alongside superior design, resulting in a new manner where one is able to interacting with technology, not to mention with each other.

Apart from that, the Neptune Pine also boasts of being the world’s first independent smartwatch. How so, you ask? Well, for starters, the Neptune Pine will enable users to make and receive phone calls and text messages, shoot video and snap photos, check up on their email, browse the web, play music or games, and others, all without the need for a smartphone to act as the “middle person”, so to speak.

If you are also in the market for a powerful fitness tracker, do not discount the Neptune Pine since it will come with a built-in GPS, pedometer, and a compass. When harnessed alongside an app, it is capable of tracking steps, pace, time, laps, and the total number of calories burned. Not only that, the Neptune Pine handset can also be hooked up to mounts or other accessories where it will then “transform” to be a wearable, point-of-view (POV) video camera, shooting in 720p HD video with its rear-facing 5-megapixel camera.

ROCCAT delivers Nyth gaming mouse

The folks over at ROCCAT have certainly done their bit when it comes to different kinds of gaming hardware (like the ROCCAT Kone Pure Military gaming mouse) that rolled out of their production lines over the years. In fact, here we are with yet another pinnacle of engineering that ought to interest those who are on the lookout for a brand new gaming mouse, since your current one is already in its death throes. I am referring to the ROCCAT Nyth gaming mouse, where it will target more specifically, the MMO gaming market.

The ROCCAT Nyth has been an idea that has been floating around for the longest time already, and to see it come to fruition is definitely something that is worth checking out. In fact, a little bit of brainstorming here and there, and ROCCAT ends up with the Nyth gaming mouse. For instance, MMO mice tend to have massive button grids which are locked in, and the ROCCAT Nyth is no different, although if you are not too happy with the layout, there is another alternative solution – for it to be a wholly modular MMO mouse, complete with interchangeable button combinations which will suit your gaming style the best.

After all, no two gamers are alike, and because of that, ROCCAT did not take the easy way out by allowing them to switch out the in-package button options, leaving it at that. In fact, those who pick up the ROCCAT Nyth gaming mouse will be able to gain access to ROCCAT’s button inventory files, and those that are into 3D printing will also be able to create their very own, now how about that?

In addition, this one of a kind MMO mouse will boast of a replaceable side-part, coupled with button modularity capability, allowing the Nyth to be transitioned into a perfectly fine-tuned MOBA mouse, and of course, for FPS fans, an FPS mouse. This is one of the first few “pure” hybrid mouse out there, a chameleon if you will, which will perfectly match up with each gaming genre. There is no word on pricing as at press time though.

Tick Mark Wristwatch tells the time in style

Most of us these days tend to use our smartphones as the primary outlet to tell the time, although a fair number of us still wear watches around our wrists. It is convenient to check out the time at a glance, but on the other hand, it is also well worth the effort to up the ante by getting a smartwatch. However, that might be a bit more pricey compared to a regular timepiece (if you do not take designer brands into consideration, of course), which is why something like the $129.95 Tick Mark Wristwatch would fit the bill pretty nicely.

The Tick Mark Wristwatch is no smartwatch, but it will definitely require a fair amount of smarts in order to tell the time – at first glance, for new users, of course. This particular wristwatch comes with 28 LEDs that will illuminate in sequence so that it tells the current time, date, and day of the week. There will be a couple of vertical rows of blue LEDs which will match with numbers that have been etched into the watch’s face, where the left row will point to the hour, whereas the right will indicate 10-minute increments as well as single minute increments. As more time elapses, the corresponding LEDs will light up, resulting in an ever-changing display of tick marks (10:15 is shown). It is made out of sturdy electroplated steel that offers reliable splash resistance to boot.

The Cyberith Virtualizer will immerse you in virtual reality without bothering the neighbors

The rise of virtual reality has been a dream come true for gamers who want to be truly immersed in their game. There’s been a lot of clamor over the Occulus, but that’s only the visual aspect. If you want to be able to run, jump, crouch, and sit in your game, then you need a literal platform to do so.

While there have been some options available like the Omni, they’re often very loud, and don’t feel like you’re actually walking. The Omni is a bowl shaped platform that you have to wear special foot coverings with, and it is extremely loud to walk on. The Cyberith Virtualizer on the other hand, is a flat platform you can full out sprint in wearing nothing more than your socks. While you will have to wear a harness, you can jump, crouch and sit normally without much annoyance.

The surface of the platform is low-friction, but the sensors are high-precision, so it can accurately tell what action you are doing. While this is only the physical aspect, it would pair well with VR displays like the Occulus, and a quality pair of surround sound headphones. Having tried the Occulus myself, you really do want to walk around, and it’s annoying when you want to run (I played Alien: Isolation and it was terrifying) and can’t. This is currently a overly funded crowdfunding campaign, but should you have interest in getting one for yourself will cost you around $1,000+. Keep in mind that the Occulus, headphones, gaming system, compatible games, controllers, and any other needed accessories for the full experience would be separate.

Message Click Clock tells the time in style

What it comes to telling the time, most of us these days would prefer to rely on our smartphones, although there is still a fair number of us out there who wear wristwatches. Having said that, if you love to decorate a room right down to the detail of your choice, you might want to check out more unique timepieces rather than the plastic clocks that IKEA has on offer. How about stretching your budget by a little bit with the £74.99 Message Click Clock?

The Message Click Clock will allow you to wake up every single morning to an uplifting personal message. Using a single click of your finger, you will be able to check out the time, date and your message.

It is also a snap to program, having enough memory underneath the hood to stash up to 7 different messages, and best of all is, it carries the entire slew of regular alarm clock and snooze functionality. Of course, clicking your fingers might not be your cup of tea, so clapping your hands to get the Message Click Clock show the time, date and ambient temperature would work as well.

Chameleon Vision Goggles give you a whole new perspective

Most of the things we buy are practical or useful. However, there are times when we put money towards things that may only be used one or two times, but will change the way we see the world. Books, trinkets, or movie tickets don’t cost a lot, but they can have a profound impact on us that sometimes lasts for years to come.

While the Chameleon Vision Goggles seem to be more targeted at children, it would certainly be an interesting experience for anyone who has ever wanted to see life through a chameleon’s eyes. These goggles aim your vision in different directions that you can rotate all over the place. There are even options to see behind you thanks to the hidden side mirrors. This should be able to fit just about anyone as there is an adjustable strap on the back.

This will cost you anywhere from $9.99-14.99, and would definitely be an experience you’re not going to forget. While it would be fun, make sure you’re not prone to getting dizzy, and try not to attempt running any races during the time you wear these. You’re not going to be able to walk very far, and especially not in a straight line. It’s easy to trick ourselves into thinking that a challenge like this would be easy to deal with, but much like being in a house of mirrors, it never goes so well if you try to move quickly (I’m certainly not speaking from experience here).

Available for purchase on Amazon

Tesoro Lobera Supreme Full RGB Mechanical Keyboard

Keyboards are a pretty subjective piece of peripheral that requires you to have the right “feel” when you use it, just like a mouse. Some folks might fall for the very same keyboard that you use, gushing over it, while others might say otherwise and cite a different brand or make. Regardless, it is always best to make sure that you like the keyboard you use – simply because you are going to spend hours on end each day using it. Having said that, if you are in the market for a new mechanical gaming keyboard because your last one has given up the ghost, here we are with the Tesoro Lobera Supreme Full RGB Mechanical Keyboard.

The Tesoro Lobera Supreme mechanical keyboard will boast of full color illumination – to the tune of 16.8 million backlight colors to choose from. It must be noted that each of the keys will be individually illuminated, and in order to enhance the overall look, the Lobera Supreme will sport an illuminated side bar in order to complete the gaming experience. As for the LED backlight itself, that will boast of four levels of brightness, a breathing mode, a color loop mode and gaming mode, where that last bit will only ensure that the gaming keys remain illuminated, making it easier to hit the right keys as you’re duking it out in a dark room.

The gaming mechanical switches for the Lobera Supreme will arrive in black, blue, brown and red shades. Not only that, the Tesoro Lobera Supreme mechanical keyboard will even enable gamers to record any macros instantly – all without the need for any kind of software. Thanks to a user-friendly user interface that lets you set even more advanced macro settings, whatever personalized settings that have been created will be stashed away in the built-in-memory (512Kb in total), letting your keyboard remain fully synchronized even during tournaments – since tournaments prohibit the installation of external software.

Expect the Tesoro Lobera Supreme mechanical keyboard to arrive in the US for $139.99 if you’re interested.

The LG KizON will make use of the likes of GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity in order to deliver real-time location information so that parents can keep track of their children’s whereabouts using a smartphone or tablet from a remote area.
