It never ceases to amaze me as to how creative manufacturers can be when trying to differentiate a product from the thousands already available. This is particularly true right now with the Bluetooth wireless speaker market. There are so many out there, many of which I simply gloss over, but the 808 Hex XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker by Voxx International, did catch my attention.
In the past, unless you were a vocalist, it would have been pretty tough to create music without your hands. Now iRing, a new nifty little product by IK Multimedia, changes all that. It uses motion-tracking technology to control music apps that will allow you to create musical masterpieces with your iOS devices using simple hand gestures and without even touching your screen.
With patio season just around the corner, portable speakers take the backyard BBQ to the next level. In my search for the perfect way to blast my summer jams, I recently tested the Klipsch GiG wireless speaker.
What is it?
The Klipsch GiG wireless Bluetooth speaker.
Who would have thought, when a German engineer was out in his driveway routinely brushing off the snow, it would ultimately lead to discovering technology behind the latest plaque-fighting toothbrush?
Don’t you just wish your favourite headphones or speakers were wireless? If your wired audio accessories have a 3.5” connector or jack, a new little gadget –ClipR by Muse Mini – can turn them wireless through Bluetooth 4.0 or NFC (Near Field Communication).
ClipR acts as a transceiver in the form of a lightweight rubber polymer coated disc, shaped like a bulked up poker chip – 42mm wide and 8mm high.
