Excellent Choice for Lightweight and Colorful Headphones

2018-01-20

It's time to bring some fun into headphone experience, and Altec Lansing has done just that with the new Rumble Headphones. You may ask, why the usual name... and so did we. The answer left us wanting a full demonstration. The Rumble Headphones actually vibrate along with the bass that adds an extra dimension to your listening experience. When we first heard this feature, we thought well that's interesting. Then we tried them out for ourselves and were quite impressed. The bass is also variable and can be turned up or down, depending upon your preference within each song. These headphones come both wired and bluetooth, with a batter life of 20 hours. The fit is customizable to your comfort and let's not forget the variety of colors available so you can match your own style and personality. Also being introduced this year are their own set of wirefree ear buds. They have a charge that offers 4 hours of battery life and come with a carrying case that also holds a 4 hour charge. The case also has the ability for Qi Wireless charging, which comes in handy with their newly introduced VersA Home Clock/Radio Speaker that offers Qi Charging on top. These air buds are extremely lightweight and comfortable in the ear and as with many of the other Altec Lansing lines, they come in a variety of cool colors. Keep an eye out on their [url=http://alteclansing.com]website[/url] for these new wearables as availability and pricing will be coming soon. I know that we will be. Interview by [livescottertz].

This Monster Super Star Reeled in the Fun

2018-01-20

The party never stops while at the Monster Products booth at CES. On top of being front and center to witness the Monster Takeover, this year we had the pleasure of meeting [url=http://petermillerfishing.com]Peter Miller[/url] and finding out which of the Monster products are his personal favorites. Getting to know Peter was so much fun!! Sure, he's a producer, spokesperson, philanthropist, professional angler, three time World Sailfish Champion and host of Bass 2 Billfish with Peter Miller, but he's also such a blast to hang out with. We share his love of listening to good music on great speakers. Music makes such a difference in life, even when fishing. Not only to keep everybody inside the boat happy, but the fish also seem to respond better when there's a kickass bass boost in the mix (as in thump, not a new fish breed). Just like us, he loves his Elements Headphones and Monster Blaster, but when asked to choose a favorite Monster product it was hands down the new S100-S400 SuperStar Series wireless speakers. There's a size and sound for every occasion. From attaching the S100 onto a backpack for they day's outing to getting the full dynamic sound from the S300s and S400s that will kick up any party, this line does not disappoint. And for somebody like Peter, the fact that they are wireless, fully waterproof, floating speakers with long life batteries that will keep up will all of his boating adventures, there's nothing better. Take a look at the full line of Monster Products [url=http://plughitzlive.com/monster]here[/url] and let us know below in the comments section which ones are your favorite.

DropMix Can Show You How to Make Game Night a Party

2018-01-19

Mix up your game night this year with the newest, coolest game in stores called DropMix. DropMix is a music mixing game created by a partnership between Hasbro and Harmonix. The game comes with 60 music cards and the DropMix board that can Bluetooth connect to your device with the DropMix app. Each card has a large name artist and song that you have probably heard on the radio, but it may only be a portion of the song such as just the vocals, base line, drum line or strings. You can play the game by placing one of these cards on the DropMix board and the music is instantly playing through your connected device. Add other music cards to create a unique mix where the game automatically sets the tempo and the key that makes the songs work cohesively. There are 3 game modes incorporated through the application. The Freestyle game mode allows players to create the sounds they want by navigating through their cards to find the mix that makes them want to dance. Players then have the ability to save their mixes and share them with their friends. The second game mode is Clash. This mode is a strategic game that can be one-on-one or two-on-two with a race to 21 points. Then there is Party mode, the fast-paced game that has everyone working together against the computer. The app will throw out quick challenges that require the players to be able to work together in a small amount of time to get the most points they can. Get [url=http://amzn.to/2BeYpNn]DropMix today for $99.99[/url] and check out [url=http://amzn.to/2Belobr]some of their latest expansion packs[/url].

Smart and Sleek Watch with Fantastic Emergency Features

2018-01-19

We weren't exactly sure what to expect when we were invited to take a look at [url=http://mobilehelp.com]MobileHelp's[/url] new smartwatch. After all, what's new with smartwatches? Not much, right? Well... wrong! It was a pleasant surprise to see the life saving technology that they and Samsung have built right into this exciting new wearable. We are all familiar with the buttons that seniors use in their homes that provide an alert when they need emergency assistance. MobileHelp is the premier Medical Alert System that provides this kind of emergency coverage. While attending CES 2017 last January, they took a meeting with Samsung to discuss how to expand upon their life saving services while also making it more accessible and fashionable for everyone. In only one year, they were able to incorporate their technology into a sleek and stylish new smartwatch. Not only does this new watch help their user base to become mobile outside of the home, rather than being stuck where their current devices are located, but it also brings these same features to so many more people. Safety is not just a concern for the elderly, yet most able bodied people do not want the stigma of carrying around a medical alert device with them everywhere they go. But when it happens to be an added feature on the watch that they are already wearing, that stigma goes away entirely. The watch works like a regular time piece and also has a button that calls for emergency services if needed. When pressed, the button signals their central station that you are in potential distress and receives your GPS location. They then give you a call through the phone that is built into the watch to verify your need and coordinate the medical attention to your location. So whether you are a senior who wants more independence, or even an athlete or college student who wants the peace of mind of knowing that medical attention is just a button push away, this watch is for you. As a matter of fact, even the CEO of the company, who is fit and jogs regularly, found himself in a situation where he was dehydrated during a run on a hot Florida day and could have benefitted greatly from this watch. The only thing better than having peace of mind is getting help when you most need it. Their tagline says it all... Stay Safe Out There.

LG: Innovation for a Better Life

2018-01-18

CES 2018 Media Day kicked off with tech giant LG. The day began with I.P. Park, the President and Chief Technology Officer for the company. Mr. Park began by introducing the company's focus for the next, which all seems to focus around seamless integration of all products, but also integration of LG products alongside other companies offerings, as well. Another big focus was LG's Thinq campaign, which focuses on providing a better form of AI for users, with a specific focus on tailoring the AI to that particular user, with an emphasis on pattern recognition. The pattern recognition algorithm provides a better AI specific to each individual user. With time, Thinq can understand that on Tuesday mornings you go to the gym, and can prepare the bottom section of your washing machine for a small load of athletic apparel the night before. It can also control other devices, outside of the LG ecosystem, though the open nature of the platform, meaning that if you own devices that are not LG, you might still have the ability to include the device in your smarthome. Along with the tailored AI, LG really is focusing on compatibility of all of its hardware and software to provide the greatest user experience for all consumers who decide to go with LG products. Just like their tagline says, Innovation for a better life. If LG holds to their principle focus for this year, that may just be the reality for all users of their products. We shall see.

Enjoy the Future Now with the Most Adorable Kuri Robot

2018-01-17

The world of robotics has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last few years. As a society, we are now use to seeing the large manufacturing robots that assist with building any number of products, and the warehousing robots that assist with pallets of merchandise for packing and shipping. We're even beginning to accept the notion of self-driving cars and drones delivering our packages and carryout. So, it's only natural that our robotic dreams take us back into cartoon history, when we all wanted our very own helpful robot at home. Well, those dreams can now be a reality. Introducing Kuri, from Mayfield Robotics. Kuri is an adorable and real live robot that has been designed to make your home smarter and your life a little easier. Not only is Kuri cute with emotive eyes, but he is equipped with sensors to map out and adjust to your home. He has bluetooth speakers on both sides that allow you to listen to music, podcasts and audiobooks. He'll even tell bedtime stories to the kids. There is an integrated camera that captures your life's special moments by taking videos in 5 second intervals. The videos are sent to the mobile app where you can like your favorites, which helps Kuri learn the kind of content you like the best. Also through the app, you will have remote access into your home while you're away, so you can check in on things and make sure that Fido isn't on the couch. And if he is, you can talk to him and tell him to get down, right through the robot. Kuri is a great way to keep connected to your home and life at home. Check out their [url=http://heykuri.com]website[/url] where Kuri can be preordered now with a spring delivery for the discounted price of $799. The price will go up to $899 on March 1, 2018.

Get Ready for the Most Awesome Electric Scooter

2018-01-17

Ride comfortably with the new stylish and efficient [url=https://www.ujet.com/en/]Ujet[/url]. The Ujet is a fantastic city and urban vehicle that is incredibly lightweight.
