Written by Oryx
On the heels of the annual tech-fest known as the Consumer Electronics Show, held in Las Vegas, USA, here are some of the most talked-about gadgets to emerge.
HEXO+ Self-Driven Flying Camera
For GoPro users, attach your GoPro to your drone, set your framing in the HEXO+ app, and you’re good to go! The HEXO+ package includes the HEXO+ drone, a 3D gimbal with GoPro mount, and a HEXO+ app – The Director’s Toolkit – to make the most of your videos. Order now for shipment when released in September.
Fugoo XL Bluetooth Speakers
If the bigger size and 40-hour battery life don’t draw your interest, the sound quality from the largest Bluetooth speakers on the market will: four tweeters, two neodymium aluminium domed mid-woofers, and two passive radiators, with a total of 24 watts, crank out a powerful 100 decibels of crystal-clear 360º sound. Available April 15.
Epson Moverio BT-200 Smart Glasses
Each lens has its own display, right in your field of vision, projected into your surroundings. And, the BT-200 glasses work out of the box with Bluetooth and other technology, plus most
Android apps. With a front-facing camera and motion tracker, the BT-200 opens a field for a host of new apps, delivering large 2D or 3D images, front and centre – virtually anywhere!
Boasting two displays – a five-inch, 1080p regular LCD on the front, and a 960x540 resolution fully customisable e-ink display on the back – the YotaPhone 2 incorporates a Snapdragon 800 processor, 8MP camera, 2GB of RAM, and a battery that allows for five days’ reading on a single charge or two days’ basic smartphone functions with the YotaEnergy app.
Magellan Echo Fit Smart Sports Watch
The Echo Fit utilises smartphone sports apps to their full potential by wirelessly sending real-time sports data to the user’s wrist, while also serving as a remote control for sports apps and music. The rugged and water-resistant Echo Fit also tracks activity (steps, distance, calories burned) and sleep (length and pattern).
