Posted by admin under Gadgets

A webcam is a pretty useful accessory, everybody uses one and everybody will probably use one if they had one. Also, it is the future of communication, why talk on the phone when you can communicate inexpensively and see the person you are talking to by using a computer, a webcam and an internet connection? This is why buying a webcam as a gift can be a great idea. If your friend likes to stay online a lot, if they have a long distance relationship or even if you want to tell them that they should communicate more with you, the webcam is a great gift. But a simple webcam can seem boring to offer and there are many types of gadgets out there that would improve that experience of making videos. Take for example this cool Lego Stop Motion Video Cam. It’s not a webcam but you can make Stop Motion Animation with it and there’s something about Stop Motion Animation and Lego that awakens something inside us that has been sleeping since childhood. Give this to an adult and you will probably see them acting like children and trying to build the coolest story ever.

This is also a cool gift for your child because it can teach them how to be creative and who knows, maybe you have a Willis O’ Brien in your house and don’t know about it. This is how most directors learn and it’s also a great way to spend some quality time with your kid. And it also involves Lego which is a major plus. The camera comes with a 1.5 inch rotating color screen and a macro lens for shooting close-ups. It also saves the captured videos to a micro SD card that you can insert in an integrated slot. It measures about 3.6 x 1.6 x 2.6 inches and weighs 13.6 ounces. You also get an adjustable tripod that will definitely help you with your stop animation movies and the stop animation software that will be essential in the process. Another benefit is the fact that it costs under $100 so it’s a pretty inexpensive pleasure you can give yourself.

Let’s be honest, sometimes we need to have good speakers for our phones. The greatest thing about it is the fact that that we can listen to music loudly whenever we feel like it.

They are extremely small, about an inch and you can play music from any source you wish with them. Also, it is pretty obvious that they are very easy to carry, even in your pocket if you prefer. If you want to measure them, you should know that they look like a pretty small dice and they weigh about 17 grams so that you can even hold them in your hand if you want more power. You can even use them as accessories, pin them to your clothes, pin them everywhere, they will just look like cool small jewelry at most. They are also about 0.8 watt so you get pretty ok sound.

Here’s a conversation starter for sure: I have a wall mounted CD Player that works when I start pulling its strings. If that doesn’t start a conversation with someone, the person you were talking to probably wasn’t interesting enough. If you thought about having a good time while listening to music playing this is the right product for you. Also, it can be the perfect gift for someone you don’t know because it’s so cool everybody loves it. This is the kind of thing that everybody secretly wants to have but nobody would ever buy it for themselves and those make perfect gifts.

It has a mechanism that uses pull strings to turn on so you can have a lot of fun whenever you want to play some music, also, the fact that it’s wall mounted adds to its cool factor.

Also, the player comes with dual speakers so you don’t need additional speakers for it. The see through window offers a cool view of the CD spinning, so make sure you put it in a visible place.


Is There a Future for the Gaming Consoles Market

Posted by admin under Gadgets

Experts argue that handheld game consoles tend to become a niche market, reduced from a quantitative point of view, but still profitable and able to survive, despite all the apps that have been developed during the last years for mobiles and tablets. With an estimated amount of 38 million portable gaming consoles to be sold by Sony and Nintendo in 2013, the account is far from the peak of 47 million units reached in 2008. Moreover, smartphones and touch pads have already shown their potential as fun generating gadgets, supported by an impressive catalog of games available at very low prices or even with a free version.

However, the field’s experts are not pessimistic. Although they predict a gradual decline in the segment of gaming consoles and a substantial shift towards smartphones and tablets, they argue that the latter will not be able to eliminate gaming consoles from the market. Sony and Nintendo will still be preferred by demanding passionate players, while smartphones and tablets will cover the general public segment. Positioning themselves as professionals of the gaming sector would probably be the winning strategy for the above mentioned companies.

The only question that remains is if there will be enough interest from developers to maintain the range of products at a satisfying level of variety. Gamers’ tastes tend to diversify and consoles manufacturers risk to lose a part of their clients’ base if they don’t succeed to keep up with the rapid pace of technological development manifest in the mobile devices world. It seems that Sony has already acknowledged the potential problem. They have renamed their games portal for smartphones PlayStation Mobile and focuse on the game sector as one of the strategical pillars of their effort to catch a part of the mobile market.

iSMRTV

Posted by admin under Gadgets

Android operating system from Google, crawled rapidly into our lives in the last two years by spreading itself through smartphones and tablets. Among the many advantages this system brought along, one is particularly important – the relatively low hardware requirements. This probably explains the large amount of applications written for it in such a short period of time.

The same moderate hardware requirements that Android has brought quite a few manufacturers to develop devices with drivers taken from smartphones and packed into a small body.  When this device is connected to the TV, it creates a tiny Media Center computer. The streamers market reached a point where it starts to get redundant. Instead of setting another device, adding it to the cables and having it gather dust next to your TV, you now have an efficient choice with Donegal Android. But can it really compete with the existing streamers? We strongly believe that features like an energy efficient processor ARM Cortex A5 at 1GHz, a Mali 400 graphics processor, 512MB of RAM memory and internal storage capacity of 4GB are up to completing the task.

iSMRTV

All this comes wrapped in a small package that reminds the appearance of an USB flash disk. The device connects to the TV using an HDMI standard cable and includes a single connection of USB 2.0. There is also a micro USB connection and memory card slot for a Micro SD.

Unlike an Android phone that is operated through touch screen, the “Android on a stick” needs some help from an external keyboard, which can very well be a wireless one. This keyboard’s design is similar to that of a remote control for console games, so it’s convenient to hold it with both hands and make a “thumbs typing”.

The iSMRTV Displays an operating system packed into a small box. This is not a dedicated streamer (which provides a simple and targeted menu), but one which provides a base for adding smart features to your TV with countless applications available for download (free or paid) from Google Play.

This particular product comes with a fairly basic hardware and it can be used as an instrument to play and view multimedia files on screen in the living room (up to the limits of its CPU), as well as allow for browsing and playing games on TV.
