Urbanista Bluetooth speaker “Sydney”

Bluetooth speakers are a great advancement from the wired ones as they are convenient and easy to place anywhere. However, the main problem is that there are so many to choose from so it is rare that these speakers grab my attention. These little Sydneys from Urbanista were some that actually did. They are small enough to dot around my kitchen and have a nice tactile feel about them with their fabric covering. They have a good run charge of 5 hours after a 1.5-hour charge and they are water resistant so great to take out and about.

AirFly Pro and the PlugBug

With all technology there is a transition phase. For example, VHS was a standard for videos in the 80s and 90s, but as the 00s came over the horizon, so did digitization and DVD’s. People didn’t just stop using VHS and move straight over to DVD. There was a phasing out period. Hence for a long time you could buy combi devices that allowed you to play both.

Slingshot All Surface Wobble Base Swingball

We had a Swingball set when I was a kid. It was a simple set-up – you stuck the pole in the ground and whacked the ball as hard as you could (or, with a bit more precision, if you were actually trying to play). The rackets that came with that game were pretty much the same as this set has now, but this upgrade has a few key differences that we were lacking back then. The obvious one is, of course, the wobble base.

Nebula Capsule II

The Nebula Capsule 2 by Anker is a small and portable projector. You can connect to this device via auxiliary, HDMI, Bluetooth, wifi, USB and USBc. The Nebula Capsule 2 can project images from 20, all the way up to 100 inches away without struggling. I was very impressed at the auto focus and how quickly it will sort itself when moving the unit around. The device also compensates very well for any tilt the device or the surface you’re projecting onto has.
