Rayz Rally is a pocket-sized Lightning-powered conference speaker

Ever wished that your speaker would be able to pack more of a punch, without losing any of its efficiency while sporting a very reasonable price tag? Pioneer has more or less successfully achieved this via the Rayz Rally. The Rayz Rally carries the distinction of being the first Lightning-powered portable speaker which is able to transform the iPhone into a conference speakerphone that is loud enough to fill the boardroom. It will not only be able to take advantage of the iOS app, but will also make use of innovative Lightning accessories in order for the listeners to enjoy a completely new experience.

The Rayz Rally will utilize Apple’s newest Lightning audio technology, that is powered by Avnera Corporation’s LightX platform, in order to deliver simple and smart solutions for today’s mobile consumers. Since it arrives in a form factor that is small enough to fit into your pocket, you might think it has a “small” performance factor, too. However, things work differently since the Rayz Rally can amplify your call experience unlike ever before.

It also carries the proud distinction of being the first Lightning-powered plug-and-play speaker in the world. It will be different from other kinds of portable conference speakers, since the Rally does not have any battery whatsoever. Rather, it will draw its power from the iPhone that it is plugged into, allowing it to work every single time at your beck and call. The LightX platform helps the Rally to minimize the power usage whenever it remains plugged into the iPhone’s Lightning port. It is also versatile in its functionality, allowing it to be used for Internet calling on the iPad and iPod touch, and on the Mac and PC via a standard Lightning to USB cable.

Those who are interested in the Rayz Rally Lightning powered conference speakers will have to fork out $99.95 for it from Apple.com and Apple stores worldwide.

TrackR Pixel might be smaller, but it is louder than ever before

Some of us have memories like elephants, where we never forget a single face, name, or person, but when it comes to the remote control at home, it tends to go missing — especially when you are not the only one living under the same roof. Well, here is the TrackR Pixel which will offer a smaller, lighter, and louder version of the original TrackR tracking device. It will not only sport a loud ringer that ought to make it easier to pick up where your item is, there is also a bright LED light thrown into the mix in addition to a long Bluetooth range.

The TrackR Pixel is one of the smallest and brightest Bluetooth tracking devices on the market right now, where it sports a longer range and louder ringer than the TrackR bravo. The integrated LED light makes it a snap to hunt down items in the dark, and is especially handy for those who would like to rummage through their own handbags in the cinema, or would need to have a little bit more light while trying to fit the key into the keyhole late at night. Available in nine different colors to fit anyone’s personal style, it is highly affordable.

Each purchase comes with a free key loop and adhesive, allowing the TrackR Pixel to be attached to any item that has a tendency to get lost or misplaced. These include keys, wallet, bags, even pets, and when paired with the free TrackR app, users can loudly ring the misplaced item, but also make the attached TrackR pixel light.

Any item that remains lost outside of range can always enlist the assistance of TrackR’s Crowd Locate Network. Upon activation, the owner will be able to receive anonymous updates of the last-known location of the missing item, each time a TrackR user passes within range of it. With more than 360,000,000 individual item updates each month, it should work better than a bloodhound. The TrackR Pixel has an asking price of $24.99 a pop if you are interested, and it also arrives in multi-packs.

V-Moda reveals the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones

Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO, beams proudly at the Forza Metallo, saying, “All other in-ear wireless headphones have a variety of form factors with show stopping compromises, imperfect ergonomics or useless gimmicks. They either look like unsightly massive ‘plastic space ring around the collars’, Frankenstein bolts that will not stay in your ears or separate earbuds that are quickly lost, have reception issues and need a dongle or case. Our first neckband Bluetooth headphone features a minimal design that can hide under a shirt collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled all-day ergonomics. With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing audiophiles and professionals with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock™ titanium cable refined to every nanometer from countless anatomical tests conducted over years.”

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.

The Brydge 7.9 Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad mini keeps you busy

 

It takes a multi-tasker to be successful nowadays. There isn’t very much free time to go around anymore when you’re working three jobs to make ends meet, and time off becomes a chance to get ahead on work rather than constantly playing the game of catchup. This means our leisure gadgets like tablets end up being a larger work hub than our phones, which in turn makes us want to get  accessories to make it easier to work efficiently when we’re on the move.

While an iPad mini is great for portability, it’s nice to type on an actual keyboard, and there are million Bluetooth options available on the market. If you prefer to have all of your gear match aesthetically or perfectly, then you’ll love the Brydge 7.9 Keyboard. This is a backlit aluminum keyboard that will help keep your productivity high wherever you go, even in low or no light situations. There’s also a strong hinge so you can put your viewing angle from 0-180 degrees.

There are three levels for the backlighting, and the aluminum body comes in color options of gold, silver, or grey.

Rand McNally Highlight is a unique Bluetooth tracker

We are all unable to have a photographic memory — only a handful of humans have the ability to do so, and these are very, very rare indeed. Well, we are thankful that there is technology which will be able to help us make better decisions while keeping track of our stuff — such as this special Bluetooth tracker from the folks over at Rand McNally. Rand McNally’s latest device, the Highlight, is touted to be a powerful and versatile Bluetooth tracker which enables users to shine a digital spotlight on tagged personal items.

You do not even need to have any kind of Spider sense in order to keep track of your devices, or use a Spider tracker like Spiderman. The Highlight trackers come in the form of decorative disks that measures slightly more than an inch in its diameter, where it will be stuck to valuables in a wide range of ways. The tiny design also makes it a snap to attach the Highlight disks to many important and yet easily misplaced items including a myriad of keys, wallets, laptops, and appliance remotes, be they for the sound system, fan, air conditioner, or even TV.

Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally shared, “We developed Highlight to help people stay organized and solve the everyday problem of misplacing items. Life is hectic and Highlight offers a helpful little reminder about your most valuable items when your mind is on other things. It also provides great peace of mind when you travel.”

Using the free Highlight app on iOS or Android-powered devices, you can then connect the handset to these disks. As long as the items are within the Bluetooth range, they can be detected. It also works the other way around, where pressing a button on the Highlight disk will then trigger a user’s misplaced phone and have it emit a sound, how cool is that?
