Gadgets have become a major part of our daily lives, whether we’re using them in the home, for entertainment or at work. Companies are constantly developing new products with innovative features that are designed to appeal to our increasing love of technology. If you’re always searching for the next new gadget, here are some of the top products that you have to look forward to this year.
The Bluetooth Keyboard
We now have a range of mobile and computer devices in our homes or offices, and many people want to interact with more than one at a time. Data published in the Salesforce 2014 Mobile Behaviour Report shows that 41% of people use both their smartphone and tablet at the same time a minimum of once per day. Logitech has provided a solution with the release of the K480 Bluetooth keyboard, which can be used on three different devices. This enables you to switch from a smartphone to tablet or desktop instantly.
The G-DRIVE ev SSD is a high-powered solid state drive which comes equipped with a USB connection and up to 400MB/s transfer rate. This machine will work with Windows Vista, 7 and 8, as well as Mac OS 10.6.
Whether you’re involved in software testing or other occupations, there are times when you require the ability to record notes whilst you’re writing. This is now achievable with the Livescribe Echo Smartpen. It enables you to save your information to an iPhone, iPad or PC using the micro-USB connection, which will also recharge the pen. Depending on the specific model, you can store up to 800 hours on one pen.
With the SyrenPro you can listen to your music wirelessly wherever you are. The Bluetooth speakers are weather-resistant and work on both mains and battery power.
Thanks to the increased use of mobile devices and social networking sites, sharing photos has become a global phenomenon. According to the 2014 Internet Trends report, 1.8 billion photos are now uploaded and shared each day across the world. This is now even easier with the Photo iPad Scanning Dock, which enables you to scan your photos straight to your iPad. The docking system keeps the iPad in position and charges it while in use.
The Power of Presentations
Companies are always making presentations on a range of topics and in a number of locations. It might be a presentation about software testing by Bugfinders, for example. The NEC VE281 is a mobile projector which can be used where a compact but high-performance unit is required. The machine is lightweight, 3D-ready and is equipped with high-quality speakers.
With the WOWee One Slim users can attach the speaker to their mobile, tablet or PC wherever they are. This portable speaker is compact but produces a clear sound, and the rechargeable battery provides a maximum of 10 hours use on one charge.
