BoomBottle MM wireless speaker

When it comes to waterproof speakers, there are many different kinds of models that are available in the market. However, Scosche has had a pretty decent track record in the past with its offerings, and recently lifted the veil up from the all-new BoomBottle MM. The BoomBottle MM continues from the ideology of its predecessor, with a portable and cylindrical design being the base design, while offering sought after features and arriving in a refined shape. Not only that, Scosche has thrown in additional functionality and exceptional sound quality, offering an alternative option to active lifestyle consumers where Bluetooth speakers are concerned.

Knowing that sound quality is always something that any serious sound enthusiast takes into consideration before making a purchase, the all-new BoomBottle MM will arrive with not one, but a couple of six-watt speakers as well as a pair of 40mm passive radiators. These offer a full-range of crisp highs and deep bass tones, and all of them are carefully placed in an IP67 rated dust and waterproof enclosure. In addition, the BoomBottle MM also arrives with auto-sensing indoor/outdoor EQ in order to make sure that listeners will obtain the best sound quality all the time, regardless of whether it is on an adventure or taking a time out after a particularly gruelling trek.

Scosche decided to integrate its patented, multi-award winning MagicMOUNT technology into the BoomBottle MM. This enables their mobile device to be magnetically secured to the speaker, providing an increased peace of mind. Located at the bottom of the BoomBottle MM speaker would also be a magnetic surface, letting you attach it to virtually any metal surface that you like no matter the angle. A built-in bottle opener lets you get refreshed easily, too.

Other features include a military drop tested design, water-friendly buoyant construction, integrated side panel control buttons, dual-pairing capability, and an extended battery life of up to 12 hours of playback time.

Occly reveals the wearable Body Cam Alarm System

When it comes to the issue of personal safety, there are several things that can be taken into consideration. While having a certain degree of knowledge concerning self-defense is always useful, why not go the extra mile by giving technology a chance to shine? Occly has come up with what they call the wearable Body Cam Alarm System, being the first of its kind from their product stable that will boast of a quartet of cameras which can capture close to 280 degrees around someone. This is not so much a security device as it is something that will allow a worker to enjoy additional employee safety and protection while they are going about their task.

The Body Cam Alarm System is able to continuously record an employee’s environment, compressing, encrypting and storing them on the Occly hardware right there and then. With Occly having already made inroads in different industries such as construction, railroad/transportation, hospitality and healthcare, the Body Cam Alarm System could not be released at a better time.

For instance, if there is an emergency that happens, all that it takes is a single press of the panic button, and the alarm will start to ring, while images, video and audio are sent instantly in real time to the Occly Monitoring Service. The same will also happen should any of the integrated sensors within the device itself be triggered. Another hardware capability of this unique piece of wearable technology includes GPS tracking, while Occly continues to work on an indoor location solution.

When the alarm rings, Occly’s Professional Emergency Monitoring representatives will receive all relevant information so that they can assess an emergency situation quickly. These are trained representatives, so they do know what they are doing. Right now, the Body Cam Alarm System is Bluetooth-enabled and operated using a smartphone with a cellular version being developed for a 2018 debut.

ANNKE ups home security ante with Nova Orion and Nova S

annke-nova-sIt has been said before that a man’s home is his castle. However, a castle is supposed to impart a sense of majesty and an impregnable fortress, and the latter is something that is sadly missing from the equation in many homes these days, judging by the amount of break-ins that we read about in the news each day. Having a home security system installed is important, and this would include making sure that there are adequate cameras in strategic locations placed. ANNKE has stepped into the fray yet again with its latest smart home security cameras, the Nova S and the Nova Orion, with the former being made available already while the latter is arriving soon.

Both the Nova S and Nova Orion are reliable and advanced 24 hours’ home monitors and assistants which will play nice with Amazon’s Alexa voice service as well as IFTTT in order to hook up to the rest of the smart home devices in the immediate vicinity. Among that, they will also boast of cloud service storage, being able to send push notifications upon sensing some motion within its range, remote monitoring capability so that you do not have to worry about the status of your home should you be located halfway across the globe due to your travels, a two-way audio smart home control, as well as 1080P clear night vision.

Being compatible with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant and the IFTTT service certainly delivers a far greater degree of control, since it can then interact with other compatible smart home devices such as temperature controls, lights, appliances and the most popular smart home devices from companies in the vein of Philips Hue and WeMo switch, among others. The Nova Orion bests the Nova S in two important functions, boasting of Smart Auto Tracking and Privacy mode. Any takers?

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.

Available for purchase on Amazon
