Radio-controlled headphone race by Urbanears is worth looking out for

Here we have received word that five famous Internet profiles will be going up against one another to emerge as the winner in what is deemed to be the world’s first radio controlled headphone race. This is a unique race that was created by the Urbanears collective, where players will settle the score using their very own 3D-printed heads on wheels from this coming June 2nd onward. The heads themselves will be controlled through wireless headphones equipped with sound controlled technology, which have been specially developed for the ‘Radio Heads’ race.

Just to get a better idea on who the rest of the contestants are, they are Tobygames, Anna Akana and Strawburry17, and it is amazing to know that each of them happen to run popular channels on YouTube, and with the rest of the contestants ganging up, it would add up to a total of more than 10 million subscribers. Each player will race with a life-size replica of his or her own head, and this unique replica is made of 3D printed plastic. The heads are then mounted on four-wheel platforms from radio-controlled cars which will be controlled by the players.

In order for this game to be made a possibility, unique sound steering technology has been developed. The wheeled heads happen to be controlled by sound, through wireless headphones with Bluetooth technology. As for the driver, he or she will steer and regulate the head’s speed simply by panning the channels and adjusting the volume using controls on a set of headphones. Sounds like a whole lot of fun to us for sure!

This special and one-of-a-kind race will be live streamed on YouTube and on urbanears.com/radioheads, allowing viewers to interact by tweeting and cheering messages to their favorite player via #radioheads. Of course, since this is a promotional event, there is also the chance to win more than 1,000 pairs of headphones, now how about that? Definitely one of the wackier “race toys/games” we’ve seen to date.

Optoma Primo8 in-ear headphones delivers quality without compromising on style

There needs to be both style and substance in this day and age regardless of whatever product you are looking at, and the headphones would be one such candidate. Optoma knows this, which is why they have come up with what they call the Primo8 in-ear headphones, which has been touted to deliver stellar bass, captivating mids and delicate highs in order to envelop the listener in musical textures that are almost real enough to touch.

Optoma is famous for being an international projector and audio brand, and the reintroduction of the NuForce Primo8 headphones is definitely a milestone. This happens to be a flagship audiophile-quality in-ear headphones, where Primo8 will bring together the coherence and seamlessness of one-driver earphones alongside the detail and transient speed of balanced armature drivers, resulting in an extraordinarily natural, lifelike sound. In addition, the Primo8 also excels in its ability to reproduce vocals which would make it stand out from the rest of the in-ear headphones on the market.

Optoma has definitely outdone themselves by outfitting each Primo8 earpiece with a quartet of proprietary balanced armature speakers in order to form a 3-way design. This four balanced-armature drivers are located in each earphone, resulting in smooth, extended response, explosive dynamic realism and fatigue-free sound. Out of this, a pair of the speakers will operate as one for bass frequencies, with one speaker for midrange and one speaker for treble.

Having a pair of speakers that work alongside one another to reproduce the lowest frequency ranges will see the listener experience the purest, most natural bass possible. The Primo8’s fast, rock-solid bass will definitely fulfill its role as the foundation for dynamic sound reproduction, and this was previously available only in the most costly over-ear dynamic and electrostatic designs. The Primo8’s proprietary crossover design will also see all four of the earphone’s speakers sing in harmony as one. There is no doubt that this technology has clearly audible results.

The Optoma Primo8 will come with a recommended retail price of $499 apiece.

Hitori de Karaoke DX lets you sing your heart out without raising a ruckus

hitori-de-karaoke-dx-solo-noise-freeThe Japanese are the ones who invented karaoke, and there has been no looking back on the karaoke phenomenon even until today. In fact, it is one of the better and healthier ways to let off some steam at the end of a particularly difficult day at the office, since you will be able to belt out all of your favorite hits, although your colleagues or neighbors might not be too happy with the quality of your cover compared to the original artist. Having said that, here is a unique device that will let you sing to your heart’s content – without waking up a sleeping baby right beside you. Enter the $92 Hitori de Karaoke DX, which is actually a solo singing noise-free microphone set.

I guess the trend for solo (hitori de) activities in Japan continues to remain strong, be it a Korean BBQ to a Moomin-themed cafe, solitary diners are a norm, and so too, is karaoke despite it being a great way to socialize with the rest of the world. This noise-free microphone karaoke set has been specially designed to mute your singing to the outside world, allowing the shy songsters to revel in their talent without revealing just what they have deep within their diaphragm. There is a funnel mic cover that ensures your singing remains muffled, while the earphones will cancel out the external speaker output, resulting in a private concert which is a perfect way to relieve stress.

Garmin announces VIRB X and VIRB XE action cameras

garmin-virb-xeIt certainly pays to diversify one’s portfolio, and imagine if Garmin as a company were to rely on their dedicated GPS navigation devices alone, chances are they would have ended up as obsolete and irrelevant. Hence, it is always a pleasant surprise to know that they have diversified their portfolio by making a foray into the world of action cameras, and here we are with the announcement of a couple of models that might just pique your interest – the Garmin VIRB X and the Garmin VIRB XE action cameras.

Regardless of which particular model that you decide to bring home, both of them are more than capable of shooting rich, high-definition, wide-angle footage, where the Garmin VIRB X and XE will boast of an all-new form factor that paves the way for additional mounting options – and indirectly, offer you new and creative ways of capturing video, now how about that?

They are also waterproof up to 50 meters, and the updated camera design happens to be even more rugged, not to mention that they do not need to have an external case when it comes to underwater shooting. Not only that, there are also enhanced video and audio modes, alongside a slew of built-in sensors and wireless functionality options, which can be made use of via the new G-Metrix feature for a wide range of data overlays as well as a richer viewing experience.

The Garmin VIRB X and XE will be able to deliver the best user experience, in addition to the best viewer experience, too, regardless of the activity that you are indulging in at the moment. It does not matter if you would like to analyze your power output by overlaying Vector data, or to show off high G-loading during an aerobatic flight, or to re-live the runs made and vertical feet covered during a powder day with the help of fēnix 3, or even to check out the acceleration and highlight top speed on the racetrack, both the VIRB X and XE will be more than up to the task.

As for the asking price, the Garmin VIRB X and XE will be out later this summer for $299.99 and $399.99, respectively.

Optoma has a pair of new earphones available

I suppose having a good pair of earphones is essential, especially if you happen to be one who spends plenty of time commuting each day, and would like to listen to your favorite tunes along the way in order to pass time. Having said that, there are way too many different brands out there in the market,and each company would have touted the merits of individual headsets. Optoma is one of them, and this particular company has just announced the availability of not one, but two new earphones, known as the NE800M and NE750M, which will make up part of its NuForce range of audio products.

Optoma did show off these earphones earlier this year at CES, but they were not made available for purchase, not at least until now. These earphones have been specially designed for those who care about the best sound quality, and happen to be perfect for audio enthusiasts, music lovers and gamers alike.

Both earphones will boast of new NuForce designed 8.6mm UWB (ultra-wideband) drivers for superior sound quality. The innovative aperiodic bass loading method is said to be able to yield a wide and open soundstage, at the same time reducing the ear pressure for a fatigue free and more comfortable listening experience. It does come with exceptional acoustic design, top quality components and an ultra-lightweight and durable chassis, where the NE800M and NE750M offer a substantial upgrade from the standard earphones which happen to accompany a new smartphone or music player. Both of these earphones will also come equipped with a smartphone compatible microphone, and they have their very own carrying case and a range of ear tips in various sizes in order to ensure the best possible fit.

The NE800M earphones have been machined from carbon fiber, and this would help eliminate the micro-dynamic vibrations which add unnecessary colorations to music. Fret not about your ears, as the soft silicone tips will deliver the best shape, fit and sound quality to any user. It comes only in one shade – Black Carbon Fiber with Brass, sporting an asking price of $149.

Panasonic Nubo camera relies on 4G connectivity

panasonic-nuboSo far, how has your 4G LTE experience been when it comes to surfing on a particular device? It surely defies imagination, although I do wonder whether the “wow” factor is there as though you were experiencing a huge shift from GPRS and EDGE to 3G connectivity in the past. Having said that, Panasonic intends to take full advantage of a decent 4G connection by introducing their Panasonic Nubo, which is a connected 4G monitoring camera.

Forget about having a professional camera system installed in your home or office that will rely on a Wi-Fi connected kit, with the spanking new Panasonic Nubo, you will be able to fall back on its very own 4G network connection. In other words, you will gain the mobility of a Wi-Fi kind of device, all without having to be limited to the trappings of a standard Wi-Fi network that will certainly fail whenever the power is cut.

The Panasonic Nubo is best described to be a standalone camera complete with its very own mobile data plan. The Nubo itself will cost you $249, which makes it far from being an impulse purchase, while the data plan will set you back anywhere from $7 to $10 monthly, boasting of weekly cloud storage backups and 250 notifications. The most expensive data plan will cost somewhere in the region of $60 alongside month-long cloud storage backups and 2,500 notifications. I suppose you can also use this for other semi-covert operations in public, where you would like to record something without having to rely on a Wi-Fi network.

The Panasonic Nubo happens to be weather resistant and will boast of sensor connectivity through an integrated wireless radio. Not only that, extra sensor controls will allow it to trigger human detection, while two-way communication has been built into the system so that users are able to talk to one another via the camera when an alert is triggered. An external battery pack is part of the deal, letting you use it even when there is no power source in the vicinity.
