The Selfie Drone captures your best look on its own

Hammacher Schlemmer has been well known to produce some rather stunning devices and put them up for sale, and this particular model is something which not everyone would have thought of. Since drones ended up being all the rage some time ago, and the selfie phenomena continues to grow as many smartphones now feature a front-facing camera that have an equal or higher megapixel count compared to the back camera. Why not merge the two together and you would end up with what is known as the $299.95 Selfie Drone?

The Selfie Drone is deemed to be an easy-to-fly camera which will enable one to share “dronies” instantly to a social network of your choice. Just how large is it? Well, it is roughly the size of a Belgian waffle, where the novice flyer will be able to enjoy a 12MP shooter with an accompanying flash just in case there are some low light conditions that need to be looked into. This Selfie Drone is more than capable of capturing Full HD video (1080p resolution) without missing a beat, and it delivers smooth operation with mechanical stabilization. The best part is, all of its intricate parts can be controlled from a smartphone.

You are now able to take a group photo with family or friends in an easier manner than ever before, and the best part is this: no longer do you need to learn how to master the selfie stick — as you have now upgraded to that of the selfie drone. The Selfie Drone is capable of taking off or landing from your hand, in addition to having a working range of 98′ which should be far enough to capture even the largest group selfies ever. IT even comes with obstacle avoidance to create a stable flight path for this flying tripod.

There is a microSD card slot to stash all of the recorded photos and videos, and it features a free iOS/Android app to work with.

LG reveals world’s thinnest hotel TV

lg-oled-wBeing at a hotel would mean one thing — you are either there for business or for leisure. Regardless of which particular category that you fall under, you would definitely need to have some downtime to enjoy a break, and this more often than not includes watching some TV. While just about all decent hotel chains have already made the jump from a regular chunky CRT to a flat screen TV of sorts, how about upping the ante? South Korean company LG has stepped up to the plate with the thinnest hotel TV in the world which claims to deliver unmatched picture quality with a unique design.

Known as the LG OLED “Wallpaper” Hotel TV, this special razor-thin display more or less ends up as one with the wall. This is the world’s first 65-inch class OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV (going by the model number 65EV960H) that will merge LG’s industry-leading hotel TV technology alongside the sleek aesthetic and unparalleled image quality of the award-winning LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W.

It sports the special ability to turn pixels completely on or off, which means that the LG OLED TV is capable of rendering perfect black levels. In other words, viewers will end up with an infinite level of contrast in order to enjoy vibrant colors, immersive details and truly lifelike images which regular LCD displays are unable to produce.

Just how thin is it in order to obtain such an accolade? We are looking at a mere 3.86mm (0.15 inches), which would allow the 65EV960H to be easily installed in luxury hotel suites using ultra-slim mounting brackets that come with a magnetic mat in order to create a truly seamless design. This makes it end up as though it is one with the wall. All of its electrical components will be housed in the device’s Media Box, where it is hooked up via an ultra-thin flat cable, so that the panel can lie flush against the wall like a piece of art while making installation a snap.

Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist

Projectors are nothing new these days, although the kind of technology that goes into them have definitely improved by leaps and bounds. As we get to enjoy clearer, brighter images with a higher resolution count, all rolled into a body that is more portable, how many projectors do you know out there that are brave enough to explore a form factor that is very different from that of a regular rectangular box? Enter the $2,500 Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist.

The first question that most people will ask when they set their sights on the Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist would be this, “Is this a robot first and projector second, or a projector first and a robot second?” The answer to that question is a silent one, you simply will need to spend time with it yourself and then draw your very own conclusions.

The Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist is a mobile robot that has the ability to wirelessly project images and streams videos from the Internet. It can project an 80″ picture on any surface from 9 3/4′ away, and this would free a crowd of viewers from having to huddle around a tiny smartphone screen so that everyone is able to view social media content or perhaps the latest trending YouTube videos. There is also a free app for Apple iOS and Android devices which will allow users to remotely control the robot, allowing the user to command its every roll, pitch, and yaw.

Do take note that the kind of money you pay for this will not offer that much in terms of video resolution, since it maxes out at just 720p HD projection. It is also best to hook it up to another sound system, since the integrated 5-watt speaker is not going to impress anyone. I suppose most of the money would have gone into its robotics than anything else. The app is versatile enough for the user to alter the image’s orientation, adjust the volume level, change content, and schedule a specific time and place for a pre-planned picture show. Connectivity options include USB, HDMI input and media connections.

Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel unleashes one’s creative powers

The imagination and mind of a child is truly a wonderful thing. In fact, give them something as simple as a cardboard box, and they will be able to turn it into a time machine or a spaceship, or simply something else that amazes you. When they are bored, do not throw them a tablet or smartphone to play games with, but rather, how about trying a sheet of paper and some crayons? If you think that doing so is too messy to clean up afterwards, then the $59.95 Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel might be worth looking up as an alternative to unleash their artistic tendencies.

The Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel is an illuminating easel that lights up a child’s illustrations. It will do so by an integrated backlight, as the black dry-erase board enhances vivid artwork created thanks to the quartet of dry-erase neon markers that comes with the package. When you need to start over or are done with your masterpiece, the board can be wiped clean with a paper towel like a traditional dry-erase board. The mounted marker tray prevents the art instruments from getting lost and the easel folds up for compact storage. Some assembly is required, with a trio of AA batteries powering the Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel.

The Leaf Faucet Extender helps little hands reach the water

sink-leaf-extender

Little kids don’t want to be little kids, even from the time they’re just learning to walk. They want to do everything on their own, and come running back to mom and dad when they realize things are a bit more complicated than they thought they would be. You want to help them be as independent as possible so that those habits of being self-reliant will follow them into adulthood, and those little moments start whenever you let them.

While this isn’t going to help your kid learn how to change the oil in their car or file their taxes, the Leaf Faucet Extender will help little hands be washed without you having to pick up your child. This is used to put the stream of water further out so that children can get on a step stool and wash their hands on their own. It can also help bath time feel more like swimming in a pool under a waterfall!

This does take some work to put onto the faucet, but should fit most standard-sized bathroom sinks. Since this isn’t made of metal, you’ll have to remove and wash it to keep it free of scum build-up, but thankfully it is dishwasher safe. You’ll be paying out $6.99 for this little bathroom accessory, and will still have to turn on the water your tiny tot, but at least your arms won’t die holding your them closer to the faucet.

Available for purchase on Amazon

Avengers Virtual Reality Battle lets you save the world

Marvel has certainly outdone itself in the cinematic realm, successfully making comic book heroes on the silver screen a top draw. Of course, the carefully cast actors and actresses in their respective roles also did play a part in the huge box office draw. Well, Marvel certainly are not done yet with all the movies in their pipeline, and while you wait for the next best thing, you might as well line up Christmas presents for your little ones. Why not keep them entertained with the $49.95 Avengers Virtual Reality Battle?

The Avengers Virtual Reality Battle is a head-mounted blaster game which will allow children to do battle with Ultron. Arming an aspiring S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a powerful blaster, the player can choose from three different levels of difficulty. He or she will then suit up and join the Avengers in order to topple this nefarious villain. Expect the headset to fit snugly around a child’s head thanks to the two adjustable straps. It will project three alternating images (two of Ultron, one of Iron Man) on the inside of the goggles, where you then take aim of the blaster at Ultron. Each successful hit after pulling the trigger will score a point, but if you shoot Iron Man by accident instead, you lose a point. Realistic Avengers sound effects are part of the mix, and so is the score tally on the digital counter. Half a dozen AAA batteries are required to get the Avengers Virtual Reality Battle, er, battle-ready.
