Zipbuds’ 26 Bluetooth earbuds target sporting enthusiasts

26-earbudsThose who tend to live out an active lifestyle would definitely be able to make do with some music to assist them along the way. That is why gyms have been fitted with modern day audio systems, blasting out music to keep the clients all pumped up in order to push themselves to improve more and more. With Zipbuds, the company knows that an active lifestyle can only mean one thing — having an equally capable piece of hardware to keep up with your frenetic and frantic pace. Their latest release, the 26 is a Bluetooth-enabled, sweat and waterproof pair of sport earbuds.

Specially created in order to solve the common frustrations in sport headphones, the 26 has been designed to enhance the user experience. It claims to offer the perfect balance of sound quality, performance, style and durability, and all of it is made possible thanks to a built-in subwoofer, in addition to sporting 144 unique fit combinations as well as industry-leading battery life. Zipbuds were careful during the development of the 26 by conducting a rigorous assessment that will help identify pain points in earbud options that are on the market at the moment. Some of the most common complaints included comfort and fit, durability, sound quality, battery life and style, and these are what Zipbuds would like to eliminate with the 26.

With the 26, users are able to push harder and go farther, hence letting athletes do what they are supposed to do — focus on the long run or extensive sweat session, as opposed to wondering whether their music playback device is able to keep up. The precision-tuned, Hybrid Driver System isolates high and mid-range frequencies, while its integrated subwoofer balances the lows. You get a concert-style, audiophile-grade sound without the bulk, and it is perfect for the gym, train commute, or any other activity that relies on music and uninterrupted connectivity. With a 15-hour active battery life with 400 hours on standby, it comes with QuickCharge technology to boot to provide one hour of playtime with just five minutes of charging. Getting one of these will cost you $199 a pop.

Tend reveals new Lynx Indoor Camera

A man’s home is his castle, and that would mean having to secure the safety and security of the perimeters. While having a dog does have its fair share of advantages, what about a digital camera in place? Security cameras have long become a staple in many of the larger sized houses that you see around the country, so why not make sure that you end up with nothing but the best? Tend has come up with the Lynx, where it will bring together an extremely simple setup process with HD (High Definition) live video monitoring as well as advanced facial recognition and motion triggered recording so that nothing escapes the Lynx’s “eyes”.

Specially designed in order to secure the people, places and things that matter most using incredibly simple with powerful and sophisticated technology, the new Tend Secure Lynx Indoor camera will deliver the perfect combination of intelligent, yet effortless, video security. Boasting of crystal clear 1080p HD video and crisp two-way audio, the Tend Secure Lynx Indoor delivers a smart video monitoring solution which will be able to work with just about any existing Wi-Fi network in a jiffy. It takes just minutes to setup, where you can then choose to place or mount it anywhere without the need for complicated wiring. This provides you with round-the-clock monitoring, including infrared capability. Wish to have a greater peace of mind? Install multiple Lynx Indoor cameras on the same network, and you can then keep track of different rooms, entryways or other locations.

The integrated and advanced facial recognition technology will be able to automatically recognize familiar faces so that security is maximized while doing away with false alarms. It remains to be seen just how accurate the facial recognition technology is, but it sure looks as though things are getting smarter around the home all the time. It will need to be trained though, but the Tend Secure app on iOS and Android can issue a mobile check-in alert as well.

The asking price of $59.99 apiece is certainly more than welcome, and it should make home security more affordable to everyone.

Beam is a smart projector that gives you a screen anywhere, any time

Beam Smart Projector

If you’re all about having a smart home, then you likely dream of having a similar setup to Tony Stark’s workshop. Everything is a motion or spoken word away from popping up before your very eyes. Currently it takes no small measure of work and money to have access to even a modicum of that same fluidity throughout your home. The most a fair number of us could manage right now is having Alexa hooked up to some smart lights that turn on or off when we say so.

Should you be the type of person who is always watching something, then having a screen pop up wherever you’d like would be a venture worth pursuing. Enter in the Beam, a smart projector that will screw into any light socket, and give you a projector wherever you’d like. This means you can watch your favorite show on the kitchen counter while cooking, wake up to the news on the wall by your bed, or watch a movie in the tub.

This is based off of the Pico LED projector which puts out 100 lumens, and has an image size range of 5-150 inches. This will connect with any app that’s on Beam, and you can control it through your smartphone or tablet. This is a $449.99 purchase, which makes it something that you’ll have to think over a bit more thoroughly before jumping into.

Available for purchase on Amazon

PogoCam is the smallest attachable camera in the world

When it comes to wearable cameras, there are quite a fair number of models that are available in the market, but this does not mean that there is no room for improvement. Far from it. Here we are with the PogoCam, which is touted to be the smallest attachable camera of its kind in the world. What makes the PogoCam unique is this is one camera that will be able to redefine personal photography as it merges fashionable eyewear with a camera, now how about that?

Thanks to the folks over at PogoTec, the PogoCam is now ready to rock and roll. You might think that this is in some way similar to that of the Snap Spectacles which will see a camera integrated into some sort of eyewear, but the PogoCam actually differs by virtue of it being easily attachable and detachable, as it can cater to a wide range of frame styles. Heck, this means that even if you do not have to wear a pair of prescription glasses to adjust your eyesight, you can still wear a dummy frame in order to have the PogoCam hooked up for that added touch of tech.

When hooked up to your pair of eyeglasses, in will weigh less than a couple of dimes. The PogoCam makes use of a proprietary new electronic architecture which will enable the highest level of miniaturization while minimizing power requirements, and for a typical user, he or she can “look and shoot” up to 100 photographs or record two minutes of continuous HD video with audio (or 12 ten second clips). Fret not, it will show off a visible courtesy light which blinks so that those around you know that they are being photographed. It even comes with its very own app that will let you focus on your subject as you move around, now how about that?

Sioeye Iris4G Blink Edition action camera features integrated 4G live streaming capability

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.
