When you have a passion for something, it’s generally on your mind for about ten minutes or more every day. If it’s an activity or hobby, you think of what your next project will be, or how you can work through issues that you face on the project you’re currently working on. For those that live and breathe being a DJ, every moment you’re a awake could be spent mixing a new song or figuring out the logistics of your playlist.
For all the times that you aren’t mixing your next masterpiece, you want to practice the performance side of things. Since you don’t want to carry an entire pro-grade mixer around with you, this Pokket Mini DJ Mixer will do just fine for impromtu gigs. This measures 6 x 3.8 x 1.7”, and can easily be put in your bag or pocket so you’ll be able to put on a show at a moment’s notice.
You will need to have your MP3‘s, iPhones, or whatever your music players of choice are, plug into your amp, headphones, and you’re ready to go. The only cable you should need is for your amp, but if you don’t have that from the get-go then you likely have other purchases to make before setting your sights on this $109 device. Best of all is that you won’t need to constantly replace batteries or or plug this in for charging on a regular basis.

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.

eCapture 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.
With the LyfieEye, you can preview, record and playback immersive spherical 360º videos and photos. These recorded media can subsequently be shared directly to Facebook and YouTube for 360º Spherical Views. Not only that, it will be able to synchronize flawlessly with any VR (Virtual Reality) headset that is currently available on the market, all without the need for any kind of technical lag. 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.

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.

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.

A 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?

If you are a do-er of all things who loves to play games, then you know how hard it is to get through a competitive match on Overwatch when your phone is constantly blowing up. You want to stay connected, but when you only have a few seconds to unlock your phone, get to the message, and tap out a response the moment after you die, there’s a good chance you’re going to respawn and waste precious milliseconds sending your fam those dank memes. To make sure you can shave off those precious moments in time of switching up devices, ROCCAT made a solution.
It’s called the Skeltr, and it is a smart communication RGB keyboard that will let you integrate your phone and tablet. Not only will it give you a dock on your keyboard that will put your devices at the optimal viewing angle, but it will connect to them so you can type messages to your phone and tablet from your keyboard. You won’t have to fiddle with either device, and will be able to send your lols and emojis without having to lift more fingers than necessary.
Just to make sure this is worth the price, which will definitely be over $100, you can also pair your phone and headset so you can take calls on while gaming, or play music from your phone directly into your earcups. You’ll get 3 thumbster keys, 5 macro keys, 1000Hz polling rate, and membrane keys to press. This keyboard will be up for purchase on the first of September, and seems like it would be a must-have for multi-tasking gamers.

When you need to get a new headset, you want the perfect cross-section between comfort, quality, price, and durability. There are more options than your brain can feasibly comprehend on the market, but the best idea is to decide what price range you’re willing to deal with, and read as many reviews as possible. There are some brands you’re going to recognize and trust, but if it’s not quite in your budget to spend $180 or more, then know that setting your sights lower doesn’t mean you’re going to miss out.
Take for example the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset. This is a USB peripheral that has 53mm drivers, 7.1 virtual surround sound, and a noise-cancelling microphone. Not only that, but it also has an inline sound card, memory foam ear cups with an extra set of Velour ear pads when you’re feeling especially fancy, and the microphone can be easily detached. It’s compatible for PC, Mac, PS4, XBOX ONE, and WiiU.
Needless to say, you would expect the price point to be higher for all these goodies, but it sits at around $84.99-99.99. This is completely dependant on what color headset you want to wear as options are pink and white, black and red, and gun metal. There are other options to check out, but this doesn’t have 4.5 stars for reviews pooling from over 2,000 people for nothing. It all just depends on how pretentious you want to be when you talk about brand and price tag.

Walking alone at night can be pretty terrifying because you can’t always have an entourage with you, but if anything happens, “you shouldn’t have been alone”. What’s worse, you can be attacked in broad daylight, even when you’re 200 feet from the police station. Being ambushed isn’t going to give you enough time to get to pepper spray or dial 911. Getting your phone out and calling an emergency number or trying to be on a call with a friend sometimes doesn’t happen fast enough.
If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, the Nimb will only need 3 seconds before starting to send the cavalry your way. This is a ring with a concealed button that will notify chosen friends, family, emergency services, and the Nimb community of your whereabouts should it be pressed for 3 seconds. Of course, while this was built because the situation mentioned above actually happened (thankfully she’s alive), this can also be used for medical issues, keeping track of your children, and other emergency situations.
You will have to keep Bluetooth on your phone at all times to use this, though they are working on a standalone ring that isn’t so reliant on having your mobile nearby. Since your phone is so integral to this working, they’ve also included a proximity alert so it can’t get too far away. This plastic and metal ring is hypoallergenic, and comes in sizes 4-12 so you don’t have to choose a specific finger or hand to wear this on. It comes in white or black with a metal accent, and is going to cost you $115.
