Studio Stick portable recording studio for smartphones

studio-stickThe modern day smartphone is indeed an indispensable tool for anyone and everyone, where it functions as our primary camera, our navigation device, our portable media player, our fitness tracker, and for some, a simple microphone to take down audio notes as and when required. All of these in addition to it being a primary communications device to keep us connected to the rest of the world. However, no one has really tried to turn the smartphone into a portable recording studio, not until now with the introduction of the Studio Stick.

The Studio Stick is touted to be the world’s first portable recording studio for smartphones which will enable users to record high quality songs/audio regardless of where they are, and at a far lower cost compared to renting a professional studio. Being a Kickstarter project, the Studio Stick will first need to raise the necessary amount of funds before it will become reality. The ultimate objective is to democratize the studio recording experience, so that artists can gain access to a professional recording studio without having to blow their budget.

Arriving in a tiny, 20-inch container which can open and expand to an adjustable height, the Studio Stick will feature a microphone, pop filter, mic stand, reflective filter, and phone holder once it is opened. This will then allow artists to be able to record high quality songs just about anywhere and at any time, making it a great tool to have around when inspiration hits. With the Studio Stick app, artists can also record, mix, and master songs, as though they were right smack in a traditional recording studio. Not only that, you can also proceed to sell or purchase beats directly from other users through the apps marketplace, and once the songs are completed, feel free to distribute them to major online retailers such as iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify among others via the Studio Stick App. Place a pre-order for the Studio Stick on Kickstarter now for $274 a pop.

PowerUp FPV – Paper Airplane VR Drone Model Kit

We love to experience the world in new and exciting ways, and have no problem spending a little money to do it. Some people, with big wallets, like playing with the latest and greatest toys and gadgets, while others don’t mind waiting for the price to drop or build it themselves. If you aren’t adept in the waiting or building department though, it might just be better to save and pay up.

While you could definitely build yourself a paper airplane at home and have a modicum of fun, it won’t compare to the PowerUp FPV Paper Airplane. You’ll still have to build the paper airplane part, but this kit will let it fly for 10 minutes, and give you a bird’s eye view of the flight. On top of that, using the included Google cardboard FPV viewer, you’ll be able to control the direction of the plane with your head movements alone.

This uses a micro USB for charging, comes with 2 spare propellers, has 8 template sheets for making your plane, a spare rubber bumper, sense cleaning swab, 550 mAh Lipo battery, and a smartphone protection strap. You’ll be able to live stream and record your flight through your iOS or Android smartphones, where you’ll also be able to steer manually if you prefer. This isn’t a cheap toy at $199.99, but you’re an adult, and you can spend your money how you want.

Available for purchase on Amazon

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.

AirJamz – the thrill of playing music without actually playing

You can pick up a new skill at any stage in your life with enough determination. Whether that’s painting, ice skating, or playing guitar, there’s no such thing as too old or too young to start learning. Of course, if you just want the fun of jamming out with friends without actually knowing how to play an instrument, that’s where air guitar, piano, and lip syncing come into play.

If you’ve decided that you don’t ever want to learn how to play an instrument and only want to stick to playing pretend, then the AirJamz will heighten your playing-but-not-actually-playing experience. This is an app-enabled Bluetooth toy that looks like a guitar pick, and will let you rock out to over 25 songs with up to 4 players at a time. Don’t worry, even if half of your friends only have iPhones and the other half have Androids, this will play nicely with all of them.

In addition to playing air guitar, you’ll also have access to 100+ instrument, laser, and synth sounds. This was designed with sharing in mind, so you can post your best or worst performances on Instagram and Snapchat for the world to see. The only downside to this fun toy is that is costs $39.99, which is a bit much to make your air guitar seem more real. Maybe $20 fun, but not $40 fun. That being said, no price tag is too high if you’re really dedicated to the craft.

LyfieEye delivers spherical 360 capture for smartphones

lyfieeyeeCapture Technologies recently announced a Kickstarter campaign for its LyfieEye device, which is something that will cater for those who have a penchant for snapping photos with their smartphones wherever they go. Of course, there are different ways and methods to shoot something in a creative manner with but a smartphone, but it would not hurt to be able to have a unique camera accessory to go along with your shots. The LyfieEye is touted to be the first truly affordable camcorder that plugs straight into Android phone ports — it works across USB 2.0, USB 3.0 or USB Type-C types.

The direct microUSB plug-in will also make a solid connection without any kind of interference. In other words, the LyfieEye will be able to plug, record and share seamlessly.

The LyfieEye can be used on Android smartphones with the supporting app enhancing it. Known as LyfieView, this app is a snap to use, and its elegant UI will enable users to capture spherical 360º content using their LyfieEye. This allows one to experience spherical 360º video first-hand. Viewers are able to check out beyond what their viewfinders are aimed at, as well as experience immersive, spherical 360º content on their smartphones.

In order to make the LyfieEye possible, there are proprietary technologies which empower it. Among them include an innovative, seamless LyfieSense architecture which optimizes several specialist technologies: among them include optical lenses, semiconductor image sensors, an image processing IC chip that was created specifically for synchronizing LyfieEye’s two lenses, the USB connector for USB 2.0 / 3.0 / Type-C, and software integration with smartphones.

Targeting long term use, the LyfieEye will come with a recommended retail price of $149 a pop, but the first hundred backers can pick up it up as a discount for $109.

The SMOVE is a smartphone stabilizer and power bank

Since YouTube can now be a viable job for just about anyone, it makes sense that we would invest more in our smartphone accessories. The higher quality of videos you put out, the more people will be interested in watching. There is that whole aspect of having content people will actually want to watch as well, but you do want to take into account the caliber of the content you’re putting out there.

For those that like to do daily vlogging and want to use their smartphone to capture their lives, the SMOVE might be something that peaks your interest. This is a combination of a stabilizer and a power bank that will let you get bump and jolt-free footage while simultaneously charging your phone for those long days of shooting. Of course, this would also be useful for people who just like taking videos or photos in general too.

This has a 5200mAh power bank, Bluetooth 4.0, works with iOS and Android, and has a variety of modes to sit at a fixed angle, angle follow, detect and follow faces, panorama shots and more. There’s a joystick for stationary movement, and a button for taking photos and video. These are currently available for pre-order on a successfully funded Indiegogo campaign, and you’ll be looking at $119 if you’re interested in taking it out for a spin. There are many other versions of this sort of thing on the market, so be sure to do your homework before taking the plunge.

Available for crowdfunding on indiegogo

These Sound Intone Noise Cancelling Headphones will help you focus

There is always something we could be doing. There are chores to be done, work you could get ahead on, food prep, and endless leisure activities and projects that would be fun to start, but would take up too much time. We only have so many hours in the day, and our brains can only handle so much input, which is why having an ideal work environment is critical to getting more done on any given day.

We work while eating, driving, in bed, on the bus, at the office, and at home where we should be relaxing. Since you can’t escape deadlines, sometimes you have to buckle down and get things done whether or not you want to. These Noise Isolating Headphones from Sound Intone could certainly help you to hone in on the task at hand without being pulled away by exterior distractions. These consist of a casted zinc alloy headband with electroplated coating, a stainless steel pull arm, memory foam ear cups with a PU leather cover, and a 3.9ft braided cable.

They fold up easily for travel, are on-ear, and have a 360 degree high sensitive omni-directional mic for better clarity when taking calls. While this $30 pair of headphones seem pretty sturdy and are competitively priced, their noise canceling is passive rather than active, reducing the exterior noise, but not dampening it completely. If you really want to go for absolute silence, you’ll have to pay a bigger bill.

Smartphone Projector 2.0 lets you watch movies on-the-move in style

smartphone-projector-2A smartphone is a smartphone, and so too, is a projector just that, although the world of convergence technology has seen the likes of Samsung make a move to integrate a projector into a smartphone a few years back. That did not prove to be a hit among the masses, but it still was quite a decent idea that never really took off since the final device did not exactly excel in its work. Enter a peripheral that might just make you love your smartphone all the more — the £19.99 Smartphone Projector 2.0 which will arrive in Black & Gold and Copper shades.

It does not matter if you are looking forward to your weekly YouTube shows or even shorts, such as the weekly dose of Honest Trailers, you can always enjoy having a blown up view with the smartphone alone — aided by the Smartphone Projector 2.0, of course. With the Smartphone Projector 2.0, you will be able to transform everyday YouTube videos into grand cinematic events, where it will also perform its task of projecting films from your smartphone onto the wall. This is made possible thanks to a high-quality glass lens with an impressive 8x magnification, and it itself is made from rugged cardboard printed to look like a retro projector. Since it arrives fully assembled, there is no need for any kind of construction. Pretty cool, yes?
