The reMarkable Tablet isn’t your average tablet; it has hand selected the best bits from some of the big boys on the market and scaled things down into this minimalist and elegant device, paired with the Marker Signature and an attractive premium maple brown leather folio. A great example of both a successful Kickstarter project and a first generation, this tablet reproduces a paper-like response when sketching and taking notes whilst allowing you to save, share and edit later.
As cinema continues to become more and more spectacular, home entertainment systems battle each other to offer the most stunning and immersive experience of that glory from your sofa. Of course, every time they raise the bar, cinema has to push itself again to convince people to pay for seats and not just stream at home. On and on it goes, and Optoma has brought out a projector to compete in this race.
My first thought when I saw the Kabuto Smart was that I was going to need to wear something nicer than paint-stained sweat pants on my next flight, this bag is so handsome you are going to want to look your best whilst travelling so as not to embarrass it. This bag comes in six stunning designs: Black Silver, Black Graphite, White Yellow, Graphite, Ink Blue (my personal favourite) and Black Copper (the model we received).
We have played with alarms that wake you up with using sound, light and even vibrations but we have never come across something that wakes you up using your sense of smell (here’s me waiting for an alarm clock that wakes you by putting breakfast in your mouth). The Sensorwake Trio from Bescent uses smell, light and sound (a trio of senses) to wake you up in the morning. The box came with the Sensorwake 2 alarm clock, some capsules to get you started and a mains cable and plug.
Mobile devices have long since become a necessity rather than a luxury and without mentioning any brands there are two giants that dominate the market, however with prices starting at £500 and upwards (and don’t get me started on those contracts) it can be very off putting investing so much money just to send your mates cheeky GIFs and play Pokemon.
Imagine an alarm clock that does more than just jolts you awake in the morning, well the Lenovo Smart Clock can play your favourite tunes, let you know whether to grab an umbrella or sun cream and remind you of your daily schedule. That’s because this clock has built-in Google Assistant. Featuring a colourful 4” touch screen wrapped in a soft touch cloth grey wedge design body, it looks attractive without being too ‘in your face’.
The Condor 10x50 Binoculars from Bresser have been produced for use during bird watching and nature observations, travelling or sporting events. They come with a carry strap, carry case and lens cleaning cloth. These binoculars offer 10x magnification and produce a clear image even in low light conditions, well equipped for an outdoor lifestyle they are waterproof and nitrogen-filled; this not only prevents water from entering the casing but also protects it from condensation, dust, dirt, fungus and rust.
With festival season upon us it is easy to forget that sharing all those Insta photos and blasting out tunes back on the campsite will decimate your battery life in a matter of hours, let alone stand a chance of making it through the weekend. Thankfully the Anker PowerCore 20100 is a highly powerful, portable power bank that can recharge the iPhone 7 from 0-100% just shy of seven times and the Galaxy S6 up to five times as well as bring the iPad mini 4 back to life, twice.
