Lily Next-Gen drone ups the ante

Drones are all the rage these days, with so many different companies coming up with their very own take on what a drone should be like, and what it is capable of. While there are many pretenders to the throne, there are only a few companies which are able to deliver as promised. Lily is one of the more reliable brands, having launched the Lily Next-Gen. What makes the Lily Next-Gen stand out from its predecessors? For instance, this is a drone in the spirit of the Lily flying camera, where it is deemed to be a fun and simple selfie drone for extremely active people.

Sporting a point-and-shoot camera that is able to capture video in 4K Ultra HD or 1080p resolution, you will be able to ensure that precious memories are always stored in high resolution for editing later on. All of the video and still shots are shot using a Sony IMX 214 camera, where you will be able to enjoy 13MP stills in addition to the high resolution video. There are also multiple one-touch functions such as flight operations and media sharing to make it all the easier to use, while the Lily Next-Gen comes with up to 18 minutes of flight time which is extremely impressive considering the rather small form factor of the drone.

The Lily Next-Gen drone is also smart enough to capture follow-me video selfies thanks to object tracking software that can follow the user or another person. Apart from that, it is able to perform non-stop 360⁰ orbits around single point, letting you get that perfect Matrix shot done. For those who want to push the boundaries always, the Lily Next-Gen can be flown up to 3,280 feet from its take-off point, and is also equally adept at flying indoors courtesy of its optic flow and ultrasonic positioning technology that helps it to avoid obstacles below it. To further ensure that it does not get lost when outdoors, the Lily Next-Gen sports geofencing and automatic return to its take-off point. Expect to fork out $699 for the Lily Next-Gen Pro.

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.

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.

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.

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.
