When we talk about Yuneec, most of us would think about the drones that the company has released to date, where one of them is the Yuneec Typhoon H drone which offers an unprecedented degree of professionalism without having to break the bank. Having said that, Yuneec has decided to charter new territories this time with the introduction of its all-new SkyView first person view headset.
This would make Yuneec as the first major consumer drone manufacturer to offer its own FPV headset, allowing users to operate via the onboard camera. Not only that, the SkyView would come in handy when it is used to watch movies, and play video games, which would be among its other capabilities. With a recommended asking price of $249.99 a pop, the SkyView FPV headset will definitely open up doors to a new dimension for drone owners.
Needless to say, the all-new SkyView is an enclosed FPV headset will play nice with the aforementioned Yuneec Typhoon H and Tornado H920. This particular headset will boast of facilities such as a built-in 5-inch HD display that transmits in 720p, a massive 75.5-degree field of view and a 16:9 aspect ratio for a stunning, life-like display. As one wears the SkyView headset, pilots can then check out exactly what the drone “sees” from its onboard camera, offering what Yuneec claims to be a true “first person view.”
The design itself is ergonomic in nature, allowing the SkyView to boast of a durable and adjustable headband which is not only comfortable for long term use, it will also be able to accommodate glasses as well. The moment pilots complete their flight, they are able to connect the SkyView via the HDMI port in order to check out the playback of videos, watch movies, and gaming, among others.
Children these days have a wealth of toys to choose from, where they are able to enjoy the different kinds of gaming options unlike our younger days where the only console to pick from was the Atari 2600, and most of the time we would make good use of our imagination as opposed to forming suggestions for other people’s imaginations like today. Still, Augmented Reality (AR) is an area that is fast expanding into everyday life like vacuum cleaners, so it is not surprising at all that AR will also target children and their toys. NeoBear is all set to release the AR Globe, an AR toy for the little ones some time later this month.
With a compatible mobile device like a smartphone or a tablet, your little ones can check out different aspects of the planet on the AR Globe, where among them include territories, buildings, animals and natural disasters for every single listed country around the world. All of this without having to go through the complexities of Google search results, as they learn to bridge the gap between reality and virtual reality.
Not only that, the younger minds can experience what goes on in the broader solar system, including the revolutions of the eight planets. Traditional globes tend to be defined as scientific and educational tools, but the AR Globe makes sure that the way children perceive the world will be a whole lot more interesting, of course.
This high-tech multi-purpose globe will subvert the cognitive pattern of traditional globes so that young learners can easily master mass knowledge of astronomy and geography. The use of AR interaction, 3D animation, human voice narration makes up an all-dimensional multi-sensory interactive learning experience, facilitating mental development of children at a growth stage. We do look forward to NeoBear fixing the final sticker price sooner rather than later.

When it comes to music, tuning in to your favorite tracks in the comfort of your own home would mean one of two things: either you have a cutting edge sound system that is able to shake the very foundations of your abode, or you prefer the silent option (for the neighbors, at least) by blasting your headphones at maximum level, ensuring that no one else gets disturbed while you rock to the beats of choice. There are times, however, when a portable speaker comes in handy — such as in a social setting where you would want to share the latest tracks in a group, or at a presentation where your notebook’s speakers simply will not do. VAVA thinks that they have another option for you in the form of their Voom 20 Bluetooth speaker.
The Voom 20 Bluetooth speaker is said to arrive in a modern yet timeless design, where it boasts of huge sound, astonishing power, and up to 10 hours of battery life. Sporting dual 8W drivers, it will also be accompanied by a pair of passive subwoofers in an effort to redefine premium wireless speakers. When it was in the design phase, some of the must-have elements include high-quality audio, timeless design, and serious durability. The end result offered all of the above mentioned, where the compact unit’s dynamic bass equalizer is able to deliver richer sounds and squeeze every bit of thump out of your music, while its rubberized IPX5 splash-proof design will ensure that party fouls will not put a damper on the party.
The VAVA Voom 20 can be said to be more than a mere portable speaker, where it reflects spontaneity and the ability to share one’s passion without having to sacrifice the quality and power of the sounds you know and love. The asking price of the VAVA Voom 20 Bluetooth speaker stands at $79.99 a pop.

When you have little kids that are just old enough to be out of the high chair, but still need a lift, you might look into getting them a booster seat. Of course, when the time comes, you have to go from the change of sitting in a booster seat to the actual chair. Instead of bringing the kid closer to the table, why not raise up the chair?
This Kaboost negates the need for a booster seat, even though it does the same job. The difference for this product is that it is fold away, and will get your kiddo used to sitting in the adult chairs right out of the high chair. It weighs 3.5 pounds, but can support up to 300 pounds, which hopefully no toddler weighs. Of course, the applications can be great for adults who aren’t the tallest of tall as well.
To make sure that no tomfoolery can happen while your bundle of joy is smashing spaghetti into their face, this has rubberized feet to make sure it won’t scratch up the floor, and grips chair legs firmly so even if the chair is moved, the Kaboost will not become unattached on its own. This will fit all sorts of 4-legged chairs, regardless of the type of leg they have. The height is the same as any booster seat, measuring 3.75 and 4.5”. This is a $39.99 purchase, and you can choose between chocolate, green, and natural colors.
Available for purchase on Amazon

There are new gaming peripherals coming out all the time. While some are better than others, what piques our interest normally lines up perfectly with our individual wants and needs. This means that more often than not, gaming accessories are targeting a specific group of gamers rather than making something that everyone can use, and doesn’t do too much in the way of improving the actual design of the mouse.
The company Swiftpoint made a mouse several years ago that did wonders for laptop users, but now they’ve set their sights to gaming, and have created The Z. This is a gaming mouse that has a world first; a mouse that can pivot, tilt, and roll, with a whole new way to press buttons. Not only are you going to have right and left click with a scroll wheel in between, but there are two side buttons, two finger buttons, two push/pull trigger buttons, two thumb buttons, and the pivot, tilt, and roll will add far more options.
This mouse is capable of reading actions on the table as well as in the air for flight simulators, and the right and left click have two clicks, a soft and deep click, all of which you can assign. You will be the one configuring what constitutes a deep click, so don’t worry about being stuck with a setup that doesn’t work for you. This will cost you $149-159 while it’s in a Kickstarter campaign, and is certainly going to give you a lot of new aspects to add to your game. Of course, this also has tons of practical uses for power office workers and designers as well.
Available for crowdfunding on Kickstarter

Whenever there is a mention of an action camera anywhere, chances are one would think of the GoPro series, or perhaps some other one-shot attempts like the Nikon KeyMission 360 action camera. Well, Sioeye does not want to miss out on the action either, and their Iris4G Blink Edition brings something special to the table — for the very fact that this is the first retail-ready action camera in the market that will boast of integrated 4G LTE live streaming capability.
It will be Sioeye’s second 4G-enabled action camera to hit the market, allowing sports enthusiasts to be able to capture and broadcast adventures in real-time. Of course, this works great if the area you are in has 4G coverage, but for the more adrenaline pumping attempts that tend to place one outside of well covered areas, then chances are the live streaming capability is not going to come in handy at all.
This will be the follow up to Sioeye’s first device which was released last year, the Sioeye Iris4G 4K. The Sioeye Iris4G Blink will hit the US some time in the second half of the year, where it will feature integrated live streaming in addition to High Definition video capabilities. Not only that, Sioeye is also adamant on expanding its market share by extending streaming capabilities to YouTube Live.
The Sioeye Iris4G Blink will open the doors for action sports enthusiasts and pros to live stream video, audio, and real-time stats — which include speed and altitude overlays to their fans, all with but a single touch of a button. Of course, if 4G LTE connectivity is unavailable at the moment, there is always 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity to fall back on.
The Sioeye Iris4G Blink live streams at 480p with 30fps, while simultaneously record HD video to local storage during a live stream session and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, equipped with an internal GPS and barometer sensors. It can also snap 8MP stills, and will come with an asking price of $249 a pop.

Casio is a name that we are all very, very familiar with when it comes to quality timepieces that are able to take a beating. Their G-Shock range is one as such, where we have seen our fair share of G-Shock timepieces over the past few decades. Having said that, this absolutely does not mean that the G-Shock series will call it quits — it’d be an extremely sad day if that happens, but rather, there is a new MUDMASTER Limited Edition Timepiece that is ready and waiting to hit the market.
This unique timepiece is set to see action at the pop-up store and event at Ron Robinson in Los Angeles at the end of this month. Such a custom limited edition MUDMASTER GG-1000 has been thought up of in partnership with the street-style oriented fashion label known as Midnight Studios. This particular watch will boast of a custom metal clasp with engraved Midnight Studios and G-Shock logos, where the exclusivity is limited from August 31st to September 7th at the Fred Segal center located at 8118 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California.
Just what can one expect from the MUDMASTER GG-1000? For starters, it will arrive outfitted with rugged capabilities that include Shock Resistance, 200M Water Resistance, Twin Sensor Technology of Digital Compass and Thermometer, Auto LED Light (Super Illuminator), World Time (31TZ / 48 Cities + UTC), 4 Daily Alarms & 1 SNZ, 1/100th Sec. Stopwatch (24Hr), Countdown Timer (60Min), 12/24hr Format, all crammed into a case size of just 55.3mm.
Since this is a limited edition timepiece, you can be sure that it is not going to come cheap. No sir, not at all. It also goes without saying that the limited edition G-SHOCK MUDMASTER GG-1000 designed by Midnight Studios will arrive with a tote bag and T-shirt, sporting an asking price of $450 a pop. Of course, this is a far cry from the other luxury timepieces that are more of an heirloom than anything else, but at least you know this one will see you through even your toughest adventures.

Being a parent is an awesome responsibility, and there are moments when despite the wisdom of the ages, there are still gaps that need to be filled where only the parent and child can bond, and conventional knowledge fails. This is the special connection for adult and baby, and it involves the different personalities and preferences in which we were born with. Well, for those moments, that you find really, really challenging to lull your little one to sleep, perhaps you might want to enlist the help of a cute assistant known as the $39.95 Singing Peek-A-Boo Pachyderm.
Just like how you get your little one to laugh with the Peek-A-Boo Animated Bear, the Singing Peek-A-Boo Pachyderm intends to live up to its potential, being an animated plush elephant that sings and plays peek-a-boo with children. Whenever you squeeze the elephant’s right foot, he will belt out a 60-second performance of Do Your Ears Hang Low? while fluttering his floppy ears. If his left foot is pressed, he will engage in a 30-second game of peek-a-boo, at the same time gleefully giggling and saying phrases like “Hello, baby!”, “Peek-a-boo is the most fun with you!”, and “Peek-a-boo! I see you!” as his ears playfully cover his eyes. Powered by a trio of AA batteries, you can be sure that your little one can get entertained till he or she falls asleep, happy.

Peace of mind — how much of a price are you willing to pay to have that in your heart? While traveling is fine and dandy for many of us, we too, would like to know whether our homes are safe and secure whenever we are not around. You also do not want to look too paranoid with too many obvious security cameras fitted all over the place, which is why the perfect balance might be the $229.95 Light Socket Powered WiFi Security Camera.
This happens to be an easy-to-install home security system which will retrofit a motion-sensing WiFi camera to an outdoor porch or garage light. Best of all is, there is no need for any kind of wiring at all, where the included smart light bulb adapter can be screwed into the current light socket in order to provide power to the wall-mounted wireless HD video camera thanks to a short cord. The camera’s infrared sensor can also detect as to when someone approaches and automatically sends a notification to your paired WiFi device through a free app. The camera will be able to stream and record video, allowing you to check on your home regardless of where you are at the moment — even across multiple time zones.
It will also come with an integrated microphone and speaker for voice chatting with visitors, while homeowners can turn the light on and off remotely or at pre-scheduled times, as well as play pre-recorded outgoing messages upon motion activation, or even sound off a 100db alarm to scare away potential intruders (and neighboring pets). The weatherproof camera will be able to hold its own against moisture, heat, and cold, where it attaches to any exterior surface with the included mounting plate. This certainly makes it sound to be a doozy of a device to have in your home, right?
