img_1502-edit1000px

Who says remote wireless presenters have to be flat or boring? Electronic accessory maker Satechi doesn’t seem to think so. They have unveiled their newest Aluminum Bluetooth Presenter and laser pointer that is shaped like a baton or a small mic rather than your typical offering.

The Satechi Aluminum Bluetooth Presenter (model ST-APA) is cylindrical shape with a two-tone colour scheme and available in three iOS inspired flavours. On all models, the top half is black and the bottom is one of either; gold, silver or space grey. On the underside is a USB charging port, charge indicator and power button. Read more…at CanoeTech Blog.

Dyson Pure Cool cools and purifies the air

PureCool_Gallery_Purifies_Year_RoundThe air we breathe indoors — where we spend the majority of our time in some cases can be more polluted than the air outside, advises Environment Canada. Some of those pollutants that can affect public health may include mould, smoke and carbon monoxide. In an attempt to help combat this issue, Dyson took some of their advanced technology they use in their vacuums and their fans plus some new added innovation and unveiled their first-ever purifier, Dyson Pure Cool.

Their latest innovation doubles both as a purifier and also a fan designed to both cool the air and remove 99.97% of harmful ultrafine particles as small as 0.3 microns from your home’s indoor air. Read Greg’s full review at CanoeTech Blog.

The ultimate mobile device for $9,995

sparkWhat sparks into mind when you read the headline? Another diamond encrusted or gold iPhone designed for those with a significant amount of disposable income? Well, this “ultimate mobile device” does come with 4G LTE – and with four wheels. Not it’s not a smartphone, but rather the all-new 2016 GM Chevy Spark.

The new wheels rolled out last month under a shroud of secrecy. As a Gadget Guy, admittedly it piqued my curiosity as nothing was pre-announced except for a picture of a box and the invitation to see the “unboxing” of the ultimate mobile device.

“The ultimate mobile device plays on the fact it has tech features just like a cell phone, but it is still a car and gets you places,” says Jamie Dewhurst, Assistant Brand Manager for Chevrolet. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

KULR plays music charges your phone and keeps your beer cold

Kulr email image 2

Cooler, when used in the context of a place to keep your beer cold when on the beach doesn’t really stir up any excitement in one’s mind. But Kulr, which sounds the same is still a cooler but it’s high-tech and in a whole different category.

First off, the cooler part. It looks like a standard cooler, but a little more sleek and stylish. It has a scratch resistant shell and an elevated slip base to keep it slightly raised off the ground. It has extra thick insulated walls to keep your “brewskis” cold and will store up to 18 standard sized cans. And should you decide to go with bottles, there’s a custom bottle opener under the hood.

Braven Bridge Executive Conference Call Speaker

Bridge_family_1There are lots of portable Bluetooth speakers on the market but I can’t say I’ve seen that many, particularly those offered in the consumer channel, specifically targeted or designed for the conference call market. But such is the case with the new Braven Bridge.

It’s being marketed as an “Executive Conference Call Speaker,” which I suspect is due to the fact that it offers both a luxurious design and built-in high definition microphones geared for use in a conference call environment. It’s an interesting differentiation as most other Bluetooth speaker offerings focus on the speaker with the microphone being a little extra, whereas for Braven, the mic is one of its primary features.

Review: Kidz Gear Bluetooth Headphones with Boom Mic

2 Kidz Gear Earcup Control

When you think of headphones for Kids, you’d likely think- cheap in terms of both price and build quality, often candy-coloured and fairly vanilla in terms of features. But one company doesn’t totally believe in that philosophy. In fact they are quite adamant, touting their latest offering the Kidz Gear Bluetooth Stereo Headphones with Boom Mic as being an adult product built for kids.

They’ve taken this direction, it seems, based on their assumptions that with kids being kids, they also want the same things that adults have. So to that end, the company introduced a fully featured wireless headset with detachable omnidirectional boom mic, ideal for use at home for gaming, on-line chatting and listening to tunes but also suitable for serious school work including activities like language learning.  Read Full Review at G4TV Canada.

RHA T20i DualCoil earbuds with interchangeable tuning filters – Review

t20-3_2While we’re seeing more wireless earbuds and headphones hit the market, one company, UK-based RHA (Reid Heath Audio) has taken a different direction. Rather than cutting the cord, it’s upping the ante focusing on high definition sound and noise reduction and introducing the RHA T20i DualCoil In-Ear Headphone with interchangeable tuning filters.

Their latest iteration brings along a few of RHA’s signature features, but its latest offering is more than a step up from the T10i and the MA-750i earbuds, the latter we looked at previously here at Canoe Tech Blog.

Starting with the buds themselves, first of all they look pretty cool. They feature injection moulded stainless-steel housings, like the 750i but rather than shaped like a traditional earplug, they resemble in-ear monitors or dare I say, metal hearing aids and give a more natural fit to the contours of the ear.
