I’m pretty open about the fact that I’ve dealt with insomnia since I was a kid, and it SUCKS. So, it’s nice to see that health and fitness wearables companies are putting forth efforts to help consumers get a better night’s sleep. I guess it’s no surprise seeing as there’s more and more health studies coming to fruition which detail how important sleep is. Today, RestOn launched their Indiegogo campaign for their sleep smart device. The RestOn monitors, tracks and analyzes sleep quality and it’s non-invasive/non-wearable design makes it hardly noticeable while you sleep.
Tech gadgets for the modern-day classroom are aplenty. Check out these sizzling gadgets and apps that have the potential to help sculpt a proper classroom for the modern day.
With all the gadgets and devices we own and use today, one can’t really go anywhere without a reasonable means to carry it all. Even a single jeans pocket is insufficient for the latest large-screen smartphones, let alone tablet, portable speaker, cables, and anything else. Besides, who wants to wear pants that bulge like that anyway?
Casio’s CTK-2400 ups the ante on all counts. Its 61 keys give an (admittedly) hobbyist/amateur keyboardist like myself more than enough room to cover the musical spectrum. And beyond the sampling capability, it comes with the full compliment of Casio functions that make the company’s line of inexpensive ($169.99 MSRP, but you can easily find one for under $100), all-in-one (speakers and amplification included for true portability) keyboards so appealing and such a great value.
Believe it or not, your love of gadgets could land you a pretty sweet job. Sure, it may take a little schooling, but if you apply the same focus and dedication in your future career as you do with your gadgets, you’ll be just fine.
Not all amazing tech products bring something entire new and different to the table. Sometimes all you need is the right ingenuity to combine existing features, and to also have an eye for design. That’s exactly what the development team behind the Bluesmart connected carry-on did.
For power-hungry mobile users, external battery packs are necessary as much as they are a convenience. Whether you’re a multi-device user or someone one who simply enjoys video media on a bright screen, you’re likely to start feeling a little tapped out halfway through the day. External battery packs provide that energy you need without the hassles of trying to locate a wall outlet.
Although I don’t get to see musicians live that often, I make it a point to go when I can. It’s an indulgence that everyone should do a few times a year, since music is so much more powerful and exciting that way. Aside from a potentially-packed venue, the only real drawback would be ringing in the ears due to lack of protection.
Health is both big news and big business these days. It probably always has been, if you consider the decades of infomercials peddling the latest iteration of fad exercise equipment and/or diet pills. But that’s not what I’m talking about. We have mobile devices and live mobile lives, therefore fitness trackers and/or apps mean money and data collection for companies. Consumers are likely more willing to be motivated through such technology than a clunky piece of exercise equipment in a room.
Booq is one of my absolute favorites when it comes to top-end bags and backpacks. Their design caters to those wanting quality and professional impression. With each new product release, booq tends to add new surprises; the Cobra pack is no different.
When it comes to the growing influx of “smart” tech products hitting the market, I tend to scoff and have an “is this really necessary?” reaction. So, when I read about a new smart yoga mat being crowd-funded, my impulse reaction was an eye roll corresponding with my usual “wtf” reaction. However, I take it all back; I think a smart yoga mat is actually a smart purchase. Now if you’ll go ahead and sit in a Lotus pose, I’d be happy to explain why.
No matter how much you like listening to your favorite band through headphones or speakers, nothing quite compares to a live experience. I take every possible opportunity to see great performances at local venues whenever artists I follow pass through. I love my music loud, and they deliver.
