5 Latest Gadgets

  1. 1. TECH SOLAR VOICE 908 October 21st, 2009 by Mark R in Bluetooth Every once in a while, a “tech-first” is reached, and i.Tech has recently announced that their SolarVoice 908 is the first solar-powered Bluetooth headset. I had a chance to try it out, and it paired effortlessly with my cellular phone. Oddly enough, it charged quite quickly. I can’t help but wonder if it was already charged by facing the sun. As it is, it has five hours worth of talk time, and standby time of 140 hours. That is without sunlight, it can supposedly have infinite standby time provided it has some sun. A flashing green light indicates that it is solar charging.
  2. 2. THE MINI BOMB SPEAKER October 21st, 2009 by Ally in Audio/Video Gadgets When you need a portable speaker, you might as well get one with a bit of personality and this speaker definitely has personality. This miniature bomb looks like a bomb you’d find in the old Looney Tunes cartoons. He has a permanent look of surprise on his face, although they don’t explain what he’s so surprised about. This bomb will be sure to play your music whether you have an iPod or just a generic MP3 player. He’s not picky.
  3. 3. ROBONI-I LAUNCHED BY ROBONICA October 21st, 2009 by Edwin in Robot Gadgets Robonica has rolled out the Roboni-i toy that will fuse elements of robotics, R/C vehicles and interactive gaming to deliver a brand new entertainment category known as “Robotic Gaming”. Gamers will find meaningful and structured gameplay within regardless of whether they play alone, with friends or online. Retailing for $249.99 a pop, Roboni-i is touted to be the “evolutionary ‘next step’ for entertainment robotics.” A smart, fully programmable and highly agile two-wheeled robot, Roboni-i is the first entertainment robot to offer unlimited play patterns. The state-of-the-art robot features 16 sensors and four processors, RF (ZigBee) remote control and peer-to-peer protocol allowing for competitive gameplay with real-world robots. It also comes packaged with game accessories and six action games enabling players to lay out a playing field and use the gaming controller to select a game as they enter a new dimension of interactive, real-world robotic gameplay. Whether alone or with friends, they will need to beat the odds, race against time, manage resources, neutralize threats, execute special effects and collect bonus points to improve score.
  4. 4. BARNES & NOBLE OFFER NOOK E-BOOK READER October 21st, 2009 by Edwin in Electronic Gadgets Barnes & Noble is a name commonly associated with books, and it is interesting to note that the company has moved into Amazon Kindle territory with other notable competitors such as Sony’s touchscreen e-reader and Irex’s releases as well, offering their latest e-book reader known as ‘Nook’. Don’t laugh at its name though – Nook is one fine looking e-book reader that will definitely have you reading more voraciously than ever before simply because you won’t mind pulling it out from your backpack for the umpteenth time throughout the day instead of showing everyone your dog-eared paperback (while giving the game away that you’re sloppy enough to mistreat your books).
  5. 5. APPLE MAC MINI UPDATED October 21st, 2009 by Edwin in Apple News Apple has not forgotten about the Mac mini during its current slew of updates, folks, where the world’s most energy efficient desktop now comes with a faster processor while offering ample storage space alongside double the amount of memory. Prices start from $599 upwards, where the entry-level Mac mini will boast a faster Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26GHz processor alongside 2GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, five USB 2.0 ports, FireWire 800 connectivity and the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics solution. Those who are feeling a little bit more flush can always fork out $999 for the souped up Mac mini that was specially configured to run the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server, where it will be accompanied by 1TB of server storage despite coming with a tiny 6.5″ x 2″ enclosure that is common to all Mac minis.
