Carah timepiece offers safety to boot

Not all timepieces are created equal. Some of them happen to be far more advanced than the others, and K-ICT Born2Global Centre’s vision for a unique device that is not only capable of telling the time, but also to ensure protection for the wearer arrives in the form of the Carah safety watch. Of course, the Carah safety watch will continue to remain a dream if it is not fully funded on Kickstarter, but we do believe that it is definitely on the right track. The Carah comes across as a real analogue watch that features smart capabilities as well as a built-in SOS safety alert.

Carah, should it drop the ‘h’, would mean ‘friend’ in Irish, and ‘beloved’ in Latin. This is the unique fruit of a computer science professor and a mechatronics expert’s collaboration, resulting in a smart safety watch which delivers not only style, but also functionality and personal security. While it looks like any other elegant analogue timepiece at first glance, there is more than meets the eye with Carah. It is more than able to sound an alarm in the event of an emergency. In order to activate the alarm, all that the user needs to do is to instigate a two-second push and hold of the watch, where it will then alert the watch holder’s guardians and emit a loud siren.

This means it is extremely easy and fast to activate such an intuitive action, while GPS information of the person seeking help is also sent out. This will allow the chosen guardians to be able to respond accordingly. Depending on the configuration beforehand, these selected guardians can be virtually anyone, including campus police or their community of helpers. This will definitely provide the owner with a sense that help is but a touch away. Other features in Carah include the ability to find your phone, audio recording capability and a one-touch timer.

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.

The Zeus All-In-One Printer – who needs to buy toys when you can make them?

We seem to have an unending want of stuff. We’ll try to be choosy and make it things that will actually be useful and applicable to our lives, but when was the last time you went an entire month without buying anything that wasn’t groceries? If you have the capital and know-how, you can avoid needing to buy any tangible bobble again, since you can make it yourself.

Not too long ago 3D printers were something only found in science fiction, and now they can give your imagination and logic a run for their money. Zeus is a plug-and-play 3D printer that will let you start making your first print within 10 minutes of its unboxing. It can be used to make toys, school projects, prototypes, or recreate old objects with ease. It is also fully automated in regards to calibration, so you never have to do any bed-leveling or touching the insides.

Since the parts are modular, you can quickly get to the turbtable and extruder to deal with any potential issues and get back to creating. There’s also the added bonus of having the templates for a number of parts in the machine, meaning you can create backups to have handy or create a new part in a couple of hours. Its max build is 6 x 8 x 5.7” with a max resolution of 80 microns. The 7” color display will let you do on-board editing without needing an external computer, making this a self-contained thing-making machine. This will cost you around $2,337, and you’ll need printer filament spools at around $22 a pop, so it’s an expensive way to pass the time.

The Philips NC1 Noise Canceling Headphones help make Mondays manageable

Philips NC1

Some days you wish the world had a volume knob so you didn’t have to listen to people talking on their phones, listening to music way too loud, traffic, and the hum of the fluorescent lights above your head in the office. We can’t always completely tune out of our surroundings, but when we can, we want our escape to encompass enough of our senses that we can relax. Listening to some music is always a great way to unwind, but if you can hear any exterior noise, it will break the illusion somewhat.

To get a truly immersive sound experience, you either need to be in a theater, or have noise canceling headphones. There are a multitude of options, and the Philips NC1 Headphones seems like they might be a decent contender. These are 40-mm driver headphones that will let you sink into a blissful sound-scape whenever you need to. They have a standalone acoustic chamber for sound precision, and in-line controls with a mic for when you need to take a call.

They’re quite convenient for travel since they can fold up and be stowed away when they’re not in use. Additionally, they weigh less than 7 ounces, so you shouldn’t be too encumbered by tossing them in your pack. These are going to cost you around $150, and while you may not escape the world around you completely, you can at least drift off for a little while.

Piper Computer Kit helps kids learn that the machines aren’t magic

For those of us that grew up when only one computer was in the household and phones were meant for little more than talking, it seemed like magic when the two became one in smartphones, and computers became capable of anything you can imagine. For kids who are growing up today, smartphones, 3D printers, and hover boards are just “how it is”. To make sure that they understand what makes them tick, you’ll have to educate them yourselves, as most schools only have kids learn on computers, not learn about them.

Just to make sure your little ones will be able to understand the basics, this Piper Computer Kit will help them build their first computer and much more. This has a wooden computer case, LCD monitor, Raspberry Pi Edition of Minecraft, and hardware components that they’ll be able to use to solve in-game challenges. The WiFi-enabled gameplay of a title everyone knows of even has extra levels and sharing capabilities so they can show off their discoveries with their friends.

There are LED lights, motion sensors, buzzers, buttons, and switches that will help your child learn how to connect the dots for making a machine, making it work, and having fun in the process. The computer aspect runs on a Raspberry Pi 3 project board with 1GB of ram and a 1.2 Ghz quad-core CPU. This isn’t cheap at $299, but will begin the journey of knowing about and understanding how computers work, which will be priceless information in today’s computer-driven world.

JLab Audio reveals a pair of wireless sport earbuds for the active

A pair of headphones or earphones are pretty much something that many of us already own — in various forms and guises, of course, that will cater to a myriad of ways in which we use it. Some of us would prefer those puffed up headphones that offer noise cancellation as it comes in handy during those long, trans-Atlantic flights, while others would prefer something that is lightweight and more importantly, wireless, because they like to wear it on their evening runs. JLab Audio has just the perfect thing for active folks, offering the Epic Air True Wireless Sport Earbuds for $149.99 apiece.

This is definitely not the most affordable pair of earbuds in the world, but what makes it unique is the fact that it claims to offer an extremely robust battery life where wireless earbuds are concerned. Sporting a patent-pending antenna earhook that ensures it remains in place all the time, the Epic Air True Wireless Sport Earbuds comes with Bluetooth connectivity so that users will see cutouts and skips as a thing of the past.

Each of these earhooks come with Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX Technology antenna, allowing it to be more versatile since either earbud is able to pick up the connection. Accompanied by a battery life of up to 7 hours, it features a charging case that offers more than 30 hours of battery life. This charging case does more than just juice it up, since it also doubles up as a portable charger for other compatible devices. It even comes with lights that indicate the existing battery level, so that you will always know just how much juice there is left remaining.

To further sweeten the deal, the Epic Air is rated as IP55, which makes it splashproof and perfect for use even when you use it outdoors while it is drizzling lightly. Do you sweat much during your workouts? The Epic Air allows you to rinse it without any problem at all, too.

The Night N’ Day Mechanical Globe teaches practical knowledge

You can never know what information is going to be relevant to your life until you need it. Our parents hound us to pay attention in school because every ounce of knowledge might be the thing that leads us to success in the future. That being said, schools don’t teach us everything we need to know about life, and in all honesty, they never could.

If you want to make sure your kids are learning information that you personally find important, then it’s your job as their guardian to teach them. This Edu-Toys Night n’ Day Mechanical Globe will help parents who are interested in clocks and calendars give their children a visual guide as to how things work. This is a real solar time rotating globe that acts as both clock and calendar, turning to show you where people on the earth are experiencing sunrise, sunset, and twilight times.

This is very easy to set up, is 11” in diameter, and won’t take up much space standing only a little over a foot tall. It even adjusts for seasons! This will cost you around $127, but for education it would certainly be money well spent. In addition to that, knowing when and where you are on the globe is helpful, especially if you ever have to coordinate with people on the other side of the world for meetings and have difficulty remembering when they are.

V-MODA Remix is a Bluetooth speaker and headphone amplifier

vmoda-remixV-MODA is well known when it comes to rolling out high-fidelity audio devices, and this time around, they have come up with the REMIX. REMIX is the very first portable Bluetooth speaker from the company that is able to roll out uncompromising sound quality alongside design, in addition to unrivaled 3D-printed customization options for every single surface. This is the result of three years of R&D that involved dozens of engineers and more than 50 prototypes.

With the foundation of V-MODA’s multi-award-winning audio technology shaping the REMIX into what it is today, it delivers precise and vibrant sound regardless of the listening levels. It will arrive in a couple of finishes – minimal CNC aluminum and luxurious vegan leather comes together, where the premium speaker is beautifully proportioned and completely customizable on all six sides, helping it to reflect the personality of its owner.

The REMIX measures slightly more than 8” wide, and has been specially designed to go anywhere, resulting in phenomenal, lifelike sound regardless of where you are. There is a newly designed glass-fiber diaphragm and long coil drivers that power it, while a rear-mounted bass reflex port ensures that one’s ears are treated to an accurate, clearly defined sound which is also powerful enough for monitoring duties during mobile recording and production. The REMIX is ideal for traveling as much as it is at home in your living room or at the office.

Since the REMIX is the world’s first 3D-printed custom speaker, it allows all half dozen sides of the REMIX to be personalized. It relies on V-MODA’s renowned jewelry-grade 3D-printing expertise so that owners are able to add new sides, make changes to the front grill, or even replace the main “C-shell” housing in order to deliver the ultimate in bespoke appearance. The choice of materials are aplenty, with lightweight matte fiber in 9 vibrant colors, 5 distinctive versions of steel, raw brass and bronze, sterling silver, 14k gold-plated and rhodium, 14-karat gold and platinum to boot. The sky’s the limit — or rather, your budget.
