Wear Your Smartphone With The inWatch Z!

When it comes to style and design the China based inWatch fashion and technology company is looking to lead the way in wearable technology with the launch of the inWatch Z Smartphone watch. It is more than just a smartwatch, because instead of synchronizing with a Smartphone, it is the Smartphone! Most smartwatches will connect to Smartphone through a Bluetooth 4.0 connection, which means that the user needs to wear the smartwatch and carry the Smartphone with them, which sort of defeats the object. The inWatch Z can connect to a Smartphone through Bluetooth, but it can also use a SIM card too, making it an independent Smartphone.


The features for the inWatch Z are impressive too, running Android 4.2, powered by an ARM processor and 1.6 inch touch screen MiraVision TFT display with a 240 x 240 of pixel resolutions. It is all wrapped up in a light and tough aluminium case with a tough sapphire glass covering the display. Some smartwatches are big, bold and overpowering, but the because of the fashion design background, the inWatch Z is a nice looking watch, not too bulky and comes with a choice of colour. To make it even more personal, each watch will come with a personalized message engraved on the ceramic back cover, which just makes it even more special.


The ARM processor is capable of offering higher speeds while using less energy, while the GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connections allow the user to get online fast. The built in camera can be used for taking photos and video, while the 3D hardware graphic processing MALI-400MP offers high performance visualizations for video, apps and everything else demanded from the display. As with any Android powered Smartphone or tablet device, the inWatch Z is able to download apps from Google Play and that means games, puzzles, social networking and everything else you can do on Smartphone, you can do on your wrist with the inWatch Z, and this is wearable technology taken to the next level.


So the inWatch Z sounds interesting and looks great too, so let’s take a closer look at what is going on under that shiny exterior. The inWatch Z is powered by the popular ARM Cortex A7 Dual Core Processor with 1.2 GHz and there is 1 GB of Ram for storage, which can be expanded up to 4 GB, which is always going to useful. It comes with a brilliant sapphire crystal face, there is a 5.0 mega pixel camera with 720 HD video capture, a neat customized Androidwear UI, with a built in bone conductivity speaker, a ceramic back cover and it is able to connect to cloud based services too, which is what having a smart device is all about.


At the moment, we are not sure as to when the inWatch Z will be launching, but we do know that when it does, the retail price is going to be around $300. However, for those who are quick the inWatch can be pre ordered from as little as $200 and that has to be a bargain for anyone who is thinking of buying a new smartwatch.

The J Shaped USB Extension For iMac Owners!

When it comes to style and design, there is no doubt that the Apple design team, are up there at the top for coming up with a great looking computers, tablets and Smartphone’s. The problem is for users of the popular 21.5 inch & 27 inch iMac Slim Unibody desk top computer, is while it looks great, for design purposes some of the features have been hidden out of sight in order to keep the style and design even from the front view.

The J Shaped USB Extension For iMac Owners!The J Shaped USB Extension For iMac Owners!jimi1The J Shaped USB Extension For iMac Owners!

This means that all of those important little ports, slots and sockets have been placed on the back of the machine. It looks great, but it means having to reach around or behind every time that the user needs to add or take out an accessories cable. In reality it means pulling out the display, turning it around to access the port panel and then once all that has been done putting it all back to how it was!



Life is far too short for all of this messing around, but we cannot change the design layout of the popular iMac. So does that mean that we have to carry on wasting time? Or alternatively, we could take a look at something that is promising to change all of this forever and it is not going to cost the earth to do it either, which makes a change for something that is associated with the Apple brand.

The product that we are going to be looking at here is called quite simply the Jimi, it’s from the Singapore based design studio Bluelounge! These guys pride themselves on coming up with products that are both sleek and innovative, so that means that the Jimi should be the perfect match for the Apple iMac computer, so let’s take a closer look at what the Jimi is and how it works.

So, first of all what is the Jimi? Basically, it is a USB extension that has been specifically designed for the 21.5 inch & 27 inch iMac Slim Unibody desk top computer. What is does is fits into one of the USB ports situated at the rear of iMac’s body, it then rotates 45 degrees and the rigid plastic body extends it to appear directly under the screen making it easy to introduce a USB powered device, flash drive or to sync your iOS powered device, such as a Smartphone, tablet or music player.


It is easy to install too, simply plug the Jimi into one of the spare USB ports, ensuring that the bottom is pointing under the monitor and snap it into the air duct underneath the screen. So now the Jimi has not only provided the user with a forward facing USB connection, it is solid too and not just hanging around loosely waiting to fall out or bend under the strain of being connected and unconnected all day long, as it will be because it is going to be so popular.

This handy piece of kit of the users of Apple iMac computers will cost just 15 Euros, not bad for something that will save a lot of time and effort.

Tune In To Gramofon The Cloud Based Jukebox!

You would have thought that with all of the technology and devices available to us that streaming your favourite through a home entertainment system would be a piece of cake, but it is not! In fact, this simple thing is more complicated than you might think and it is the reason why many people do not bother with it. Wi-Fi experts Fon have plans to change all of this with their new Gramofon cloud based jukebox. At the moment, there are certain issues when streaming music through those large speakers at home.

Tune In To Gramofon The Cloud Based Jukebox!

The Gramofon does things differently because it does not require a constant Bluetooth connection and it will not be interrupted whenever there is a phone call, text message or some other notification trying to get through as what happens when a Smartphone connects to a speaker through the Bluetooth connection. It seems to us that for anyone who is looking for an easy and carefree way of connecting his or her Smartphone to the home entertainment system Gramofon is worth considering. The Gramofon system is ideal for getting the party started or for just listening to a track or two while relaxing, there is probably not an easier of way of getting the most of your favourite music with ease and not to waste time messing around trying to connect the devices. 


The Gramofon is like a personal audio hub and it is easy to get started too, simply connect the Gramofon to any audio system such as, speakers or a sound system. Now, it is time to either go online through a stable Ethernet connection or if you have access to one, the better option is a wireless connection. Unlike Bluetooth, a wireless connection has a much wider range in most cases covering the whole house and sometimes the garden too. Because the Gramofon has been designed to allow users to stream their own music, the final stage is to connect the device to a Smartphone, Android or iOS powered devices should be able to pick up the Gramofon’s Wi-Fi signal.

Tune In To Gramofon The Cloud Based Jukebox!

That is it, the system is now set up and ready to receive an audio stream from Spotify or free radio channels through the WahWah the free cloud based radio service, which will initially begin in the US, Brazil and some parts of Europe, before expanding globally. Another cool and interesting feature with the Gramofon system is because it uses a wireless connection that also means that everyone else is able to connect and have a say in what is being played and how loud! Unlike a Bluetooth connection, using a wireless connection means that the audio remains constant, so if the user leaves the room the music is not going to leave with them as it would if the device was connected with Bluetooth.

Tune In To Gramofon The Cloud Based Jukebox!

The Gramofon will be going on sale this summer with a $99 price tag, but currently there is a chance to pre order it from just $50 up to $60 and that represents some serious savings for the early bird buyer of one of the coolest audio devices we have seen for some time.

Make Your Smartphone Waterproof With The Impervious Spray!

It is the fear of all Smartphone and tablet owners that at some point your precious device is going to be dropped into water. Well apart from those who are using the Sony Xperia, which is already waterproofed. However, for those of us with other Smartphone’s and tablets, water is a fear and despite what everyone says about using a hair dryer and sticking it into a bag of rice, a device that has been fully immersed in water is never going to be the same again.

Make Your Smartphone Waterproof With The Impervious Spray!

Of course, there are some cases that claim to be waterproof, but do you really want to take a chance on that actually being true? So, what we are looking at today is a new product that is still in development. However, it is something that promises to turn an ordinary Smartphone into a waterproofed Smartphone. This is certainly something that we are really interested at looking at and seeing it in action, because despite all of the claims, the Smartphone and tablet owner is going to want proof that it works.


The product is called Impervious; it is an invisible spray that has droplets, which are a thousand times smaller than a human hair. In order for the product to work, it has to be applied properly and thoroughly, this is means inside and out must be covered with the spray in order to build up layers that are microscopic in size, but are able to keep water from damaging the device permanently. Unlike other similar sprays, Impervious will not leave behind any residue or sticky surfaces.

The Impervious waterproofing kit creates a hydrophobic barrier around the delicate parts of the device, which is long lasting. Other similar products have been found to dry out and can be easily removed with a scratching or rubbing, this is not the case with this spray, because it is non water based. Therefore, it is not going to dry out like a water based treatment and according to the manufacturers of Impervious it has a life span of up to three years. That should be long enough to see any contract to its end or allow for the user to buy the latest Smartphone.

Make Your Smartphone Waterproof With The Impervious Spray!

So, this is all fine but what we really want to know is just how good is this Impervious waterproofing kit? Well the company says that it has been classified to IPX7 level. This means that the Smartphone or tablet can dropped into a metre (3 ft) of water and stay there for up to thirty minutes without there being any permanent damage caused. So, this means that if the device it dropped down the toilet, into the bath or even into a swimming pool, the Impervious waterproofing spray should keep it nice and dry.

Make Your Smartphone Waterproof With The Impervious Spray!

Well, what do think? Do you think that this is something worthwhile? If so, then you might interested to know that the Impervious waterproofing kit for Smartphone’s and tablet devices, should be launching sometime in the summer, which is just in time for holidays. However, it can already be pre ordered with prices starting from around $30, which is considerably cheaper than buying a new Smartphone of tablet device to replace the waterlogged one.

If brewing your own beer is your thing then keeping it nice and chilled is a must especially if it is a lager type beer that is best served chilled for that refreshing taste. However, the problem that faces the home brewer is keeping that freshly brewed beer at the right temperature all of the time. Because having the temperature go up and down is not good for the brew as temperature changes can have a detrimental effect on the quality of the brew.

Keep Your Home Brew Cool With The Brewmaster Kit!

What every home brewer needs is something like the BrewJacket, this is a piece of technology that makes pouring a perfectly chilled glass of beer easy as you like. this interesting piece of brewers technology uses the immersion principle to chill the beer and keep it chilled for as long as the unit is plugged into the mains power supply, that is it the way to keep beer at the right temperature.

But that is only part of how the BrewJacket helps the home brewer produce a lovely beer and keep at the right temperature for longer. Brewing beer requires precise temperature changes at certain stages of the fermentation process. For instance during the first stage it will require a steady temperature of 52 f, simply set the BrewJacket device a leave until the next temperature change is needed and so on until the brewing the process is complete. At this point, it is time to set the beer to chill by choosing 35 f; this is the perfect chill factor for a lager type beer. You might think that you have seen this kind of thing in action in action before, well you may well have done if your hot water is provided through an immersion heater. 

Keep Your Home Brew Cool With The Brewmaster Kit!

Just like this hot water system, the BrewJacket comes with its own insulated puffy style jacket, which helps to keep the temperature at the right level without much loss through the sides of container, which can be influenced by both heat and cold. The BrewJacket starter kit comes with the following; The BrewJacket Immersion Cooler, the Insulated jacket that is able to fit either a carboy or bucket and a #10 pre drilled plug, which is for the rod.

The Tubecore DUO Vintage Style Audio Centre!

While many people would be thinking that new audio equipment should look like it could be at home on the bridge of the USS Enterprise starship, there is a new market opening up where the actual audio equipment is state of the art, but the exterior has the look of yesteryear. This is exactly where the DUO from Tubecore fits into the audio market. The DUO is a rare thing not only because it looks like something from the fifties or sixties, but also because is connects using a low energy Bluetooth connection and yet it is powered by classic tube technology. It is the weirdest thing to see and yet at the same time it is totally amazing to see those coloured tube illuminated in the front of the DUO.

The Tubecore DUO Vintage Style Audio Centre!

So, what does the DUO do? Basically, this is a powerful wireless enabled speaker system, with a built in computer of the user’s choice such as the Raspberry Pi or the Udoo Quad mini computers. Because of the wireless connection, it means that the DUO can be used for streaming music from smartphones and tablets, connecting to the TV and it is going to great for gaming too. Something as technical as this machine is going to rely on some serious specs and features, so let us take a closer look at what the DUO has under that classic wooden exterior. The Vacuum Tube Pre Amp has a dynamic range of 100dB (20Hz to 20kHz), with a frequency response of 10Hz to 20kHz (+0,-1dB). It has a maximum input level of +14dBu and a maximum output level of +28dBu.

The Tubecore DUO Vintage Style Audio Centre!

While the main power amp comes with a stereo mode of 8Ω / FTC 20 Hz – 20 kHz / 0.1% THD – 100w and has an input sensitivity of 1.15V (+3.4 dBu). The DUO is compatible with the Raspberry Pi (Model B) powered by the ARM 1176JZF-S (ARM v6k) 700 MHz processor and the Udoo Quad powered by the Freescale i.MX 6 Quad + Atmel SAM3X8E processor. As for the dimensions of the DUO it measures up at 470 mm (W) x 238 mm (H) (Overall) x 228 mm (H) (Cabinet) x 218 mm (D) and it weighs in at around 11.9 kg The DUO is built using the highest quality of materials that are built up around the class A preamp core and powered by the built in computer. It is because of this built in technology that the DUO has so many uses; it is totally flexible while looking absolutely stunning with the tubes built into the front and the wooden case that the whole thing has been built into.

The Tubecore DUO Vintage Style Audio Centre!

When the DUO launches it will have a retail price of around $649, but at the moment Tubecore are accepting pre orders at just $479! That is a massive saving of $170! There are of course, quite a few options available, so the actual price that the buyer ends paying for the DUO is likely to be higher than the starting price. For example, grill covers cost $19, tubes range from $25 to $75 and the Udoo mini computer will set the buyer back an additional $110. It all mounts up from the base price!

Contacter Social Media Without The Internet!

Normally when we think of social media it is easy to think of Facebook, Twitter and Google+ but there is more to social media than just posting cool images and telling your friends what you are having for breakfast, social media is about communication and believe it or not the internet is not always necessary for that to take place. Now you may think that this sounds crazy, how can you possibly have a social network with no internet? Well that is exactly what Contacter is hoping to achieve with its new form of social media without relying on the internet to connect.

Contacter Social Media Without The Internet!

So, what is Contacter? At first glance the Contacter device looks like a smartwatch, but that is where the similarities end, because when paired with other Contacter devices it creates a self organising network that is totally free to use and does not require a wireless or satellite connection in order to work. The incredible thing about this device is that unlike Bluetooth, which has a limited range, the Contacter devices are able to connect to each other no matter where they are. The Contacter is a new kind of network that offers a service that is free from advertising and cost, yet the users are able to stay in touch no matter where they are and without the fear of those dreaded data roaming charges.

Contacter Social Media Without The Internet!

They call this system a decentralized and self organizing communication network, which means that the user is able to see the other users in the neighbourhood area and beyond, the system can just keep expanding and the users can build up a network of friends and colleagues to build a limitless communications network. To get started the user is going to have to create a profile using their real name or an alias, they can add an image or picture to create a more friendly looking profile, once completed like other social networks the user is able to connect with other users and visa versa in order build a network.

Contacter Social Media Without The Internet!

Once the user has set their preferences they will be able to search for other similar users or business and send a message, or if they are really looking to build a large network the user is able to send out a general request for friends, products or services, its a bit like the early social networking day before they started bring in all those annoying rules. The actual Contacter device have a large screen that is easy to read, with a message detailing new and sent messages, the touchscreen looks like a small mobile phone, so typing might be a challenge until you are used it, there is of course, a watch feature with time and date, while built in player provides access to video playback.


The Contacter system should be going live by the end of the year when two devices will cost $480 and one will cost $250, however at the moment they be pre ordered from just $380 and $199 respectively, which is quite a saving for such an interesting and new social networking idea.
