Razer Atheris is a mouse for notebook users

Mention Razer, and you would most probably have gaming-centric hardware and peripherals sweep across your mind. After all, Razer is a household name when it comes to delivering quality gaming peripherals for the hardcore gamer, but the company has taken a sideways look at road warriors and pitied them. Hence, the birth of the Razer Atheris, a wireless notebook mouse that lays claim to having the longest lasting battery life in its class, while delivering lag-free wireless gaming-grade performance.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. After all, Razer’s expertise in the gaming department has spilled over to the corporate side of things, and the result is the Razer Atheris. Specially designed for mobile work as well as play as it outlasts any competition, the Razer Atheris is capable of delivering up to 350 hours of non-stop use on just a couple of of AA batteries. This would be more than enough juice to last even the most boring of all boardroom meetings, and is also perfectly at home to meet the needs of intense gaming sessions on the go in order to alleviate stress at the workplace.

The Razer Atheris is special since it boasts of Razer’s proprietary wireless Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT), delivering industry-leading transmission that makes for the most reliable, stable connection. AFT is enabled whenever it connects via a compact USB dongle, and this USB dongle is easily stashed away in the mouse. Whenever there is no USB connection, fret not, just switch over to Bluetooth LE connectivity and you’re good to go. The Razer Atheris, with its 7200 DPI optical sensor, delivers blazing accuracy across multiple high-resolution monitors, while offering an unfair advantage during work or play. It will retail for $49.99 in the US, and €59.99 across the pond. Being an ambidextrous mouse certainly helps its case to be appealing to the masses.

The Bluefinger LED Keyboard and Mouse Set – pretty doesn’t have to come at a price

When you’re looking for a new keyboard and mouse, getting the best specs at the cheapest price point is normally the way to go. If you have a load of money to drop on a professional matching set, then more power to you, but not many of us are are equipped with the ability to adequately use all the bells and whistles they have, let alone afford it. The more casual gamer wants performance, and if it has the looks to boot then that’s all the better.

This Bluefinger LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo is elegance, grace, and will help you shoot things in the face. It has an almost angelic look to it with white keys and brushed gold metal surface detailing, and is backlit with a greenish blue or light blue LED. You’ll be able to switch between 3 color breath mode, static color, or one color breath mode. There are also 4 brightness levels for the light, including off, low, medium, and bright.

The mouse has adjustable 800-1200 DPI, 6 buttons, and 4 color options for back lighting. This is plug and play, but has system requirements of Windows XP, VISTA, WIN 7, WIN 8, WIN 10, Mac OS X, and is wired, so it will need to take up two of your USB ports. It’s pretty, seems like it would work well, and only costs around $35, which isn’t too shabby for a set if you’re in need of something new.

The Z Mouse will bring a whole new angle to gaming

There are new gaming peripherals coming out all the time. While some are better than others, what piques our interest normally lines up perfectly with our individual wants and needs. This means that more often than not, gaming accessories are targeting a specific group of gamers rather than making something that everyone can use, and doesn’t do too much in the way of improving the actual design of the mouse.

The company Swiftpoint made a mouse several years ago that did wonders for laptop users, but now they’ve set their sights to gaming, and have created The Z. This is a gaming mouse that has a world first; a mouse that can pivot, tilt, and roll, with a whole new way to press buttons. Not only are you going to have right and left click with a scroll wheel in between, but there are two side buttons, two finger buttons, two push/pull trigger buttons, two thumb buttons, and the pivot, tilt, and roll will add far more options.

This mouse is capable of reading actions on the table as well as in the air for flight simulators, and the right and left click have two clicks, a soft and deep click, all of which you can assign. You will be the one configuring what constitutes a deep click, so don’t worry about being stuck with a setup that doesn’t work for you. This will cost you $149-159 while it’s in a Kickstarter campaign, and is certainly going to give you a lot of new aspects to add to your game. Of course, this also has tons of practical uses for power office workers and designers as well.

Grace Digital CastDock X2 speaker makes its mark

grace-digitalIf you have not heard of Grace Digital Inc. before, then here is a little bit of background information – they happen to be the leading manufacturer of award winning Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, portable and home audio systems, and also happen to be first off the blocks in announcing the first speaker that has been made exclusively for Google’s Chromecast Audio device in the world, allowing it to stream music via Wi-Fi to just about anywhere in your home.

There is a market for multi-room Wi-Fi wireless audio, as this particular niche has seen its fair share of products and actions in recent times, where a slew of large as well as smaller sized companies have rolled out their respective devices. Rather than flood the market with yet another model, Grace Digital decided to take the road less traveled, having physically integrated the Chromecast Audio device (which is sold separately) straight into the speaker, now how about that? This means there is no need for an additional app or system to learn – making it somewhat like the Nvidia Shield Pro.

When you are in possession of the CastDock X2 speaker, all that you need to do is to place a Chromecast Audio device on top of the Grace CastDock, hook up the integrated power and digital audio cables, and voila! You end up with an instant, world-class Chromecast enabled speaker which is more than capable of rivaling just about any competitor’s proprietary system out there.

Some of the features that have been incorporated into Grace’s CastDock X2 and Chromecast Audio include the ability to listen to more than 30 million songs from over 100+ cast-enabled music apps such as Pandora, Google Play Music, Spotify, and iHeartRadio, being able to enjoy a higher quality sound, to play music just about everywhere with multi-room feature and without any kind of interruptions, and mirror music from a laptop or Android phone.

The Grace Digital CastDock X2 speaker for Chromecast Audio is going for $149.99 a pop if you are interested.

The Bedphones Gen 3 are functional and comfortable

Bedphones Gen 3

Some days it seems impossible to fall asleep. There’s too much going on in your brain and while you’re not necessarily hearing voices in your head (that’s reserved for the clinically insane), it’s just…loud. The only way to calm your mind enough to catch some z’s before the sun rises is to drown out the hustle and bustle of your brain with music, but the problem is that most headphones aren’t exactly comfortable to wear when you’re laying down.

If you don’t like using a speaker because your walls are paper thin and you’re a considerate neighbor, or you just prefer to hear every note as crisply as possible, you’re going to need a more comfortable option. These Gen 3 Bedphones might make sleeping with headphones on a less painful experience as they’re less than 1/4” thick, and use memory wire ear hooks to make sure they fit exactly as you want them to. Of course, even being as thin as they are may still be a bit too uncomfortable for some people.

These will plug into your music-playing device through a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means you’ll need to keep your device near your head. There’s also an app for iOS and Android that will automatically shut your music off when you fall asleep. One of the newer features is that it is now equipped with an in-line mic and a button to let you control music and handle calls for those of you who want to use these as more than a sleep aid. This $59.99 purchase comes with replacement foams, a carrying case, and a satin eye mask.

Available for purchase on ThinkGeek

Papaerlike might save your sight from an early grave

In the Information age, we spend more time than ever in front of one or more screens for 8+ hours a day. If you work on a computer, then you know how bad the eye strain can get when you’re nearing a deadline. Having worked as a writer and photographer for many years, I’ve spent one too many days and far too many hours in a dark room with a bright screen, and am already having to deal with the effects on my vision.

While using an E-Ink display would greatly reduce the strain on our eyes as it doesn’t emit any light, no one has really made the effort to make anything bigger than a Kindle. Enter in Paperlike, the world’s first E-Ink Monitor that is a 13.3” screen which takes the crisp and detailed images you would see on a regular monitor and puts them on an E-Ink display to unburden your eyes. There are four image processing algorithms to choose from so you can view your screen in whatever way you prefer.

There’s also threshold contrast conditioning so you can adapt different fonts and color themes to E-Ink. Much like a tablet, you can also use this USB connected monitor in either landscape or portrait mode. If you’re looking to make life easier for your eyes and want to keep your vision past the age of 50, then you’ll be looking at putting down $799-899 on this crowdfunding project.

Available for crowdfunding on Indiegogo
