This all-new Razer Orbweaver Chroma is capable of offering with 20 fully programmable Razer Mechanical Switches; where there will be an eight-way directional thumb-pad; adjustable hand, thumb and palm modules; and now equipped with the well loved lighting features that were originally captured on the Razer BlackWidow Chroma keyboard.

When you get to be so immersed in what you’re doing, the rest of the world falls away. You forget about whatever else might be on your schedule, what needs to be done tomorrow, and you embrace the present. While it’s happening, it’s rare to notice and appreciate, but it is possible. We can’t go off on nature adventures where you “find yourself”every week, so we dive into things that can distract us from the ebb and flow of daily life.
Video games, music, and movies can take us away to a mental sanctuary, but if the audio sucks, it’s hard to be pulled into the experience. You want to feel like you’re surrounded by the sound, rather than just taking it in. The 3D Sound Headphones can virtualize up to 25 sound sources, last for up to 18 hours on one charge, and will engulf you in your digital space.
It shouldn’t be terribly surprising that there’s an app to go with this, since there seems to be one for everything on the planet. The mobile app uses signal processing algorithms to position the various audio sources to give you quality sound reproduction. These are only available for pre-order at the price of $270, and will start shipping on September 15th. While these look really cool and seem to have big, squishy ear cups, there was no mention of how comfortable they are, which is a big factor if you want to marathon something for eight hours and this starts hurting at hour number two.

It goes without saying that many of us these days would like to look cool, so to speak. After all, there is value in looking your very best, or sharpest, regardless of where you are. The clothes do make the man (and woman, of course), and if you are a gamer, then having a gaming rig that has plenty of hardware firepower is definitely something worth checking out. Of course, what is underneath the hood should also be complemented by what is on the outside, and you can be sure that the Razer DeathStalker Chroma gaming keyboard is one particular device that will appeal to just about all kinds of gamers, regardless of the genre of game that you indulge your time in.
The Razer DeathStalker Chroma intends to be different from the rest of the crowd by being a high-performance gaming keyboard that will feature fully programmable slim chiclet keycaps as well as a trio of customizable backlighting zones. It is famous for its sleek design that requires a travel distance of a mere 2mm to actuate, which means the Razer DeathStalker Chroma will be able to provide superior performance if you were to compare it to traditional rubber dome membrane switches that will require the whole travel distance in order to register a keystroke.
In addition, there is an ergonomic wrist rest which has been specially designed with the sole purpose of comfortable typing on this low profile keyboard, making sure that countless hours of gameplay will not result in any kind of fatigue at all. Apart from that, the keyboard will also come equipped with the award winning Razer Chroma lighting, which would be extremely pleasing to the eyes, to say the least. There will be a trio of distinct lighting zones as well as different kinds of lighting effects that range from spectrum cycling to static, breathing and even the iconic wave, which enables the Razer DeathStalker Chroma to be easily personalized to suit any style.
It is right now available for $99.99 a pop, although our friends who live across the pond will have to fork out 119.99 Euros for one of these puppies.

When you’re playing a multiplayer game with friends on PC, there’s no problem telling them exactly what you want to say via text. Your fingers can move a mile a minute thanks to the years of training typing messages on your phone and PC have given you. Through a keyboard, whatever enters your mind can become words within seconds. When you move to console, the idea of typing out so much as a sentence is painful as it takes several times longer to tap out.
If you want to be able to whip out a full text conversation on your PS4 without feeling as though you need a computer-sized keyboard, then this Nyko Type Pad is perfect for you. Not that many people really talk through text anymore for games, as it’s usually better to be on a live chat with headphones. However, if you just want the ability to type quickly on your PS4, this will let you do it with a full QWERTY keyboard.
It has an analog nub for quick directional menu navigation, and has a built-in rechargeable battery that won’t suck the life from your controller. You won’t need to worry about much fuss with putting this on, as it’s a simple snap on. The black keys fit into the PS4 controllers aesthetic, with orange as a highlight. This is going to cost you $34.99, and don’t worry, you’ll still have access to your headphone jack.

If you’ve ever used a locker during your school years, you have dealt with either a combination lock or a padlock. The combination lock is easy enough as you can write down the numbers or keep the combo in your phone, but a padlock requires you to keep track of a key. Unless you have a lockpick handy, you’re going to have a hard time getting into anything without one.
There are many things that still require a lock and key, and the QuickLock can provide you with a more advanced option of keeping your items safe. This is a lock with built-in wireless capabilities, and many options for getting into this thing. Made of a Zinc Alloy, you can open this lock through a swipe with a fob, card, or smartphone.
Not only can you easily open this device, but you can use up to 50 NFC keys with an unlimited numbers of phones. Why on Earth you would ever want to do that with so many different keys I have absolutely no idea, but hey, the options are there. You obviously won’t have to worry about remembering a combination or where you put a key, and it has a battery life that will last up to 2 years on one charge. This will only cost you $48.99, and but you will obviously want to have a Bluetooth capable smartphone for this to be of real use to you.

If you grew up in a forested area with not a lot to do around you, chances are you played amongst the trees. Sticks were wands, building materials, staffs, swords, and much more. Of course, if you did want to make a stick fort, you needed something to tie the sticks together to keep it from crashing down on you. Maybe you used long grass, yarn, or rubber bands, but all of those will weather and be impossible to find after a few months.
If you want to build these structures with your kids, but don’t want to lose the stick binding materials, then why not use Stick-Lets? These are made of 100% silicone, and are recyclable. These are brightly colored bands that can stretch and keep your sticks bound together while you and your little one are making new architecture. There are a several variances so you can make whatever sort of structure you’d like.
These can be tossed in the dishwasher whenever they get to be too dirty, and unlike yarn, grass, or rubber bands, you won’t have to destroy them to take them off. You can get anywhere from 6-204 pieces depending on how creative you or your kids would like to get, but the price will go up or down depending on how many you choose, costing you $16.50-375. Don’t try to use these with any weight, as they are only meant to bind things together, otherwise you’re just looking at an accident waiting to happen.

I don’t know about you, but some of us do happen to have a phobia of dolls, and horror films such as Chucky do not help the case, either. Well, if you have absolutely no qualms about living in a house that is full of dolls, and giving your little princess a new doll for any and every occasion, then chances are you would be pleased as punch to hear how VTech has introduced their all-new Baby Amaze range of toys. Such traditional baby role play has been given an injection of innovation, where one can play with a pair of exciting learning dolls and a 3-in-1 stroller.
The Baby Amaze range happens to be an innovative assortment that relies on technology to teach nurturing concepts and developmental milestones. Ranging from a doll that plays peek-a-boo and one that learns to talk with a growing vocabulary, all the way to a stroller that transforms into a high chair and bassinet, Baby Amaze toys will work in tandem in order to foster independent play, motor skills, imagination and language development among children ages 2 to 5 years.
For instance, the Baby Amaze 3-in-1 Care & Learn Stroller will have a smart sensor within which is capable of recognizing movement whenever your little one places her baby doll in the stroller itself. This smart sensor will get to work by playing fun sounds and melodies. When you transform the stroller into a high chair, children can then hear baby care reminders which introduce nurturing concepts and healthy habits, while they pretend to feed their doll. Alternatively, the high chair can be turned into a bassinet and the doll falls asleep as it listens to over 20 classic nursery rhymes and lullabies. The $44.99 3-in-1 Care & Learn Stroller will also boast of keys that introduce numbers, counting, letters, colors, places and animals, as well as plays piano sounds in music mode.
As for the Baby Amaze Learn to Talk & Read Baby Doll, children are able to talk to their baby doll to hear her repeat what is said, or read. Basically, the more children speak, the more the doll will learn and repeat! I suppose these dolls are well worth getting now rather than having to wait until Christmas, how about you?

I suppose that it would not be too far off the mark to suggest that having an alarm clock to wake one up every morning is a crucial aspect of modern day life. After all, it is far too much of a hassle to have a pet rooster within the confines of a city, let alone if you happen to stay in an apartment or flat. Having said that, while many people continue to make use of their smartphones (or perhaps a growing number of smartwatch owners) as their morning alarm clocks, how about taking a step back and enjoy the past, with the Electrohome Retro Clock Radio?
The name of this particular device says it all – this is an alarm clock, no doubt about it, and it comes in a design that harks back to far simpler days. The circular, vintage design will be able to dress any room or nightstand, and it will boast a bevy of useful features for the user, such as motion activated sensors, twin LED lighting bulbs and dual alarm clock options, which will definitely go some way in ensuring that you wake up well in the morning.
If you are sensitive to loud sounds or who have trouble waking up, then the Retro Clock Radio will fit your need to a ‘T’. It delivers a calming experience, where its pair of twin LED lights will brighten as a user’s wakeup time approaches. Thanks to the serene and soothing glow cast around your room, it creates a peaceful environment, ensuring an energizing start to the day – even if you decide to shut out all light from your room with a thick curtain.
There is also a motion sensor in the Retro Clock Radio that does away with fumbling and stumbling while you look for a light switch in the dark. All that you need to do is to wave your hand over the Retro Clock Radio, and it will turn on its light bulbs, delivering instant illumination to any room. The motion sensor can also be used to activate the snooze button for mornings, handy when you are desperate for those additional five minutes. Seems to be a dream purchase for just $34.99 a pop.
The modern day road warrior will definitely carry his or her fair share of mobile devices, and with this, we do know that at least one of them would be a smartphone, while it is not too far off the mark to say that the other might be a tablet, or perhaps a smartwatch. Having said that, making sure that your mobile devices are well powered all the time can be a little bit tricky, especially if you are constantly on the move and will need to look far harder for a power outlet than you normally would at the office. Ecoxgear knows this, which is why they have come up with several rugged solutions for the road warrior, and they are the EcoPebble Powerbank, EcoCarbon, and Sol Jam.
All three solutions means you should have no issues with enjoying the great outdoors, since they are resourceful enough in their own way to keep your mobile devices powered up, and you, entertained. For starters, the Ecoxgear Sol Jam is touted to be the industry’s first 100% waterproof (IPX67) portable Bluetooth speaker that boasts integrated HD solar panels, now how about that? I guess you can more or less say that this is perpetually self-sustaining as long as the sun shines.
As for the EcoPebble Powerbank, this particular device will come with a solitary 2” speaker driver along with a 10,000 mAh battery charger for ultimate portability. Still, it ensures that it can pack quite a punch where sound is concerned, as well as enjoying efficient charging capabilities. The Powerbank will be IPX 67 waterproof and is also fully shock resistant, letting you enjoy it as you hike, climb, camp, or surf, among others. You can also play music while simultaneously charging up to two different devices at a time. A full charge of the EcoPebble would let it deliver more than 50 hours of playtime, and there is also a bright LED flashlight and phone control buttons for those who want to make use of it as an overnight companion.
There is also the 2,600 mAh EcoCharge that is deemed to be the perfect 100% waterproof and rugged power bank, although it does not carry too much juice by itself, making this a truly last resort style device.
Where the EcoCarbon is concerned, it is deemed to be the next key component of Ecoxgear’s latest line-up, where it will also play music while charging devices. EcoCarbon will arrive equipped with multiple mounting accessories to affix to your tent, bike, or board, where it has the ability to float on top of water, and has more than 12 hours of playtime, a 4 step LED battery meter and an LED flashlight for navigating.
The Pebble Powerbank, EcoCarbon and EcoCharge will be available from next month onward, retailing for $100, $130, and $20 respectively, whereas the Sol Jam is set to hit the market in the fourth quarter of the year for $150 a pop.
