Amazon Tap Review

Amazon Tap ReviewSet to be released by Amazon on March 31, the Amazon Tap seemed to be making a huge buzz in the Tech Industry already. This device is definitely a great addition to the Alexa Family. For those those who have not heard about Alexa – it’s the name of the voice-controlled assistant in these Amazon devices. It basically works like Siri only more. It just simply does more than just answering questions and finding local businesses around the area. It can play your favorite music, order pizza, voice control your home and even requests rides from Uber. And who knows what more – company is further extending their tie ups with other companies. I must say it got me enthusiastic knowing it can do all these. Let’s know more about this device from this Amazon Tap Review, shall we?

It makes sense perfect sense why Amazon Tap is already making a scene. It used to be already a wonder being able to turn the lights on and off by clapping. And now these amazing technologies are able to make things done by voice commands – not even lifting the phone to order pizza. Life is easy.

What are the impressive features of Amazon Tap?

If you are going to remove the built-in, voice-command Alexa features, what you get left with the Amazon tap is the basic Wi-Fi enabled portable Bluetooth speaker. Even so, it makes a pretty good job at it. It gives a clear, rich, full-range 360 degrees omni-directional audio. It is equipped with Dolby Processing dual stereo speakers which makes it able to have crisp vocal output as well as extended bass resonance.

Adding the voice command Alexa features on this device just makes it an ultimate must have for gadget geeks and techno crazies as it extends what it can do to a whole new dimension and a lot more possibilities. With a single tap at the microphone button, the Tap plays your favorite song by asking for the artist, or the genre. It streams music directly from Spotify, Prime Music, Pandora TuneIn and more. You can also ask to read the news (or have her read something from online), get the weather, change room temperature, report humidity levels, control home (SMART compatible) appliances or set the timer for alarm, set, order pizza, get you an Uber ride and even open your garage (with Garageio).

The Amazon Tap is a compact device and can be easily brought along, weather you are heading to go biking on the mountains or going to a beach party. A full battery charge can last up to 9 hours, which of course depends on the level of use as well as device settings, and environmental factors.

PROS

  • Small and portable (6.2″ x 2.6″ x 2.6″ or 159 mm x 66 mm x 66 mm; Weighs 470 grams)
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity  (can be tethered to you smartphone)
  • Alexa App is compatible with Fire OS, Android, and iOS devices (can even be accessed on your computer browser)
  • Great audio output – has dual 1.5-inch drivers and dual passive radiators for awesome bass extension (Dolby and Stereo Sound)
  • Alexa voice service – voice control creates a whole lot of possibilities for this device
  • This device works with mobile Hotspots
  • Charging cradle included with purchase
  • Battery powered (can last up to 9 hours)
  • Optional super chic Tap Sling case makes it really easy to bring around but costs extra

CONS

  • Just like the trouble people may have with Siri, sometimes Alexa does not understand what you are asking. You’d have to repeat until Alexa gets it
  • Must have smooth internet connection, otherwise voice commands will not get through
  • Not many home appliances are compatible to follow commands – for example SMART appliances are more likely more inclined to be able to get commands from Alexa.

As of the writing of this Article, Amazon  keeps on working to integrate the device with other companies such as Nest and many others. That only means that there are a lot more possibilities that the Alexa Voice Command System can do in the future.

Celluon PicoPro Review

Celluon PicoPro is probably the most overwhelming product that I have seen and experienced by far. This small and lightweight device can literally bring cinematic big screen experience right at the palm of your hands. Yep! This device is approximately the size of your palm or to be a little more particular, just about the size of iPhone 6 Plus. A more important question is, despite the size of this device, will it give sufficiency to the expected projector output of the user? Read more from this Celluon PicoPro Review to find out.

Click here for product pricing and to read more user reviews.

Breaking the boundaries of watching from the small screens of mobile devices, Celluon’s PicoPro brings a spectacular new dimension with this little projector that can be brought anytime and anywhere you want. It brings bright and bold colors and does not need to be adjusted for focus.

What are the best features of this tiny Projector?

The company responsible for the technological competence of this device is the same company that is  accountable for researching, developing, including over and above – the manufacturing of the projection keyboard module and final products utilizing the 3D Electronic Perception Technology. Celluon, a company based in Korea has undoubtly made their PicoPro Projector a flexible, portable and suitable platform to watch movies on a bigger screen or even for an office presentation. This tiny device make it more convenient for the user to perfectly fit in on an easy lifestyle, be it at home or in the office.

Using MicroVision’s PicoP laser technology gives the biggest advantage of this product as compared to other tiny projectors in the market. With this technology, there is no need to adjust focus. All you have to do is  point the projector at the screen and you’ll get an impressively uniform on every corner across the screen. It also does not need a fan to cool down, making the device noiseless when operating. This also makes the device consume less power. It can last up to 2.5 hours when connected to a cable and about 2 hours when wireless.

Complementing these mentioned awesome features of this device is its equally impressive 1920×720 resolution display. The resolution dimension seemed to sound weird but the scanned laser beam approach actually has the basic advantage of auxiliary multiple output resolutions through a single Microelectromechanical systems mirror, in contrast to being restricted to fixed resolutions like panel based displays. Generally, this projector is also much brighter than other tiny projectors in the market. Thanks to its 80,000:1 contrast ratio and 16.7 million colors, it produces exceptionally vivid pictures.

PROS

  • Small and Lightweight (6 x 3 x 0.5 inches, 8 ounces approx.)
  • Uses conveniently rechargeable Lithium ion batteries
  • HDMI & Miracast-enabled Wireless for Android devices
  • Bride and Bold color resolution (1920 x 720p resolution)
  • Stunning color and image quality
  • Silent Operation (no fan)
  • Infinite Focus (no need to adjust focus)
  • Includes holding mount upon purchase (standard package)

CONS

  • Speakers are not powerful enough – especially on a large crowd
  • Not very suitable in using with spreadsheets or word-processing document (it is a little hard to read – it is however good for Power Point Presentations with larger texts)

The high ranking in Amazon of this product as compared to other products in the video projectors category evidently shows that a lot of users are satisfied upon purchasing the product. It can be a little sore on the budget but it is definitely worth its price considering its features.

OxyLED Sensor Activated Wireless LED Lights Review

Setting up the perfect home lighting system in our homes can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. Not only we consider providing adequate lighting but of course we’d have to mind of how nice it will look like and if the lights will not be consuming too much energy. But hey! Worry no more. Thanks to OxyLED Sensor Activated Wireless LED Lights as they have provided an all-in-one solution to home lighting needs. In this review, 3 different products from Oxyled will be featured. All of which have lights and motion sensors that best fits consumer needs. To know more, read further from this OxyLED Sensor Activated Wireless LED Lights Review.

Click here for product pricing and to read more user reviews.

These OxyLED wireless LED lights are products that are manufactured from HISGADGET company, a company based in California, USA. The company aims to maximize the use of advances in technology to enrich ones life. According to the company, “HISGADGET tracks all the latest consumer technology breakthroughs and shows you what’s new, what matters, and how technology can enrich your life. Besides, we design and manufacture our products from the most competitive suppliers.” Let’s now take a closer at look at their products to see if these ideals hold true.

What are the best features of OxyLED’s LED lights?

Before we discuss each of  3 of this Brand’s product features, let us first take a glance on what all these LED lights have in common. Unlike other brands in the market that only has either a light sensor or a motion sensor, HISGADGET’s OxyLED has both. You get to enjoy both worlds alongside having natural lights. These LED lights also consume less energy and is powered by either AA or AAA batteries (it is very easy to change the batteries too!). These lights are convenient and easy to install and use, suitably portable, has an impressive modern design, and can be generally fixed in any setting – in your house or office or pathway. All these models also have detachable back plates with 3M adhesive pads which makes it very easy to stick in and install most likely wherever you want it.

As mentioned earlier, these devices have motion sensors but it does not detect just motions alone. Its PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor) detects movements only those coming from warm objects like the human body. This means it doesn’t detect curtains that are moving because it is being blown by air coming from the air conditioner. This feature makes OxyLED lights even more energy saving.

As one of the Best Sellers in Outdoor Step lights, the OxyLED T-02 DIY Stick-on Anywhere Portable 10-LED Wireless Motion Sensing Closet Cabinet LED lights really puts up great impressions from users. It is small and light weight with a size of 7.5 x 1.2 in (L x W) and weighs 114 grams  or 4.0 oz accordingly. The pure white light coming from this small device is impressively bright as it contains a total of 10 LED lights which can last to up to 50,000 hours or more, depending on usage and battery life (batteries are not included in  purchase – needs 4pcs. of AAA batteries). This product makes a great alternative to a standard light switch with an added touch of elegance and convenience. It is perfect for pathways, closets, bathroom, baby room, corridors, basement, garage or pretty much most areas in your house needing an automated light. Detection of sensors is within 3 m distance and has a sensor range within 120 degrees.


The OxyLED T-05 model on the other hand, has the same  motion sensitivity, (about 3 meters or approx. 15 feet),  sensor range (120 degrees) and LED quantity (10 LED) only it has yellow lights instead and has a different design. It also has a switch for the user to choose whether to put the auto-sensing ON or OFF. If the sensor is ON and there is no movement detected, just like the other models, it automatically turns off after 15 seconds. It is 7.09″ x 1.18″ x 0.51″ or  188 x 30 x 13 mm in size and weighs approximately 02 grams or 3.5oz. This night light is an ideal installation for walls in home or office or even in your bedroom. This particular model is powered by 3 pcs. of AA batteries which is not included upon purchase.


Last but not the least is the OxyLED Luxury Aluminum LED T-03 Model. Personally this is my favorite. It has all the features I need – plus the impressive elegant design. This model is made with durable stainless that would probably last for years. Powered with 4 pieces AA batteries, this light and motion sensor activated LED wall light has also the sensitivity of 3 meters, with a sensor range of 100 degrees. It emits pure white light with a LED life also of about 50,000 hours or more depending on usage.

PROS

  • Easy installation (can be installed anywhere in the house or office)
  • Light weight
  • Small yet emits bright lights
  • Energy saving
  • Wireless
  • Elegant design
  • With detachable back plates
  • Equipped with both light and motion sensor
  • Usage of passive infrared (PIR) technology allows detection only from body’s radiant heat thus sensing human motion and not objects
  • Powered by AA or AAA batteries and are easily replaceable

CONS

  • The device may not be recommended outdoors especially in areas that are not protected by rain.
  • Motion detectors also detects movements from pets too (dogs or cats) but it doesn’t seem to be such of a big issue.

A reminder: Installing T-03 and T-02 models too close to each other may not be a good idea since the light detection can turn the other device off and vice versa.

Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer Review

1943 was the year when Polaroid had revolutionized the field of photography when it launched the first instant camera. The company has not stopped from making such bold steps in the industry and earlier this year, they have launched another product that presents the same experience that is utterly inclined with today’s trends.  The Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer renders instantaneous printing in a small, phone-sized device. This device simple allows the users to print out photos from their devices using either Bluetooth or NFC technology. Read more about this device in this Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer Review.

Click here for product pricing and to read more user reviews.

The Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer is simply a stand-alone, mobile photo printer that allows you to immediately print out 2 by 3 inch border-less color photos, directly from your mobile devices. Unlike the Fujifilm Instax cameras, the user need not to wait for the photos to get developed. Aside from that, the photo paper used for printing is cheaper too and it also does not need those messy ink or ribbons for printing.

What are the best features of this Mobile Photo Printer?

The Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer is only as small as your smart phone or more appropriately more like an external hard drive – thus making it ultimately portable. It approximately measures 2.91 by 4.72 inches and weighs about 186 grams or 0.41 lbs. It has its own rechargeable 500mAh lithium polymer battery which is capable of printing up to 25 sheets with an hour and a half charging time. Printing quality is quite decent and does not come close to inkjet photo printers however this product is not a direct competition for those kind of printers. This printer also showcases a free App for both Android and iOS users where you can make basic photo ID cards or create mini collages or even a vision board – thus enhancing photo printing and user’s artistic abilities.

A feature that takes this printer to another level and makes it noticeable in the market is the fact that is uses the groundbreaking ink-free Zero Ink Printing technology which was actually industrialized by ZINK imaging. Now, how does this printing system works? The main approach lies on the branded ZINK Paper. These specially-made photo papers are embedded with dye crystals (cyan, yellow and magenta) along with a shielding-polymer coating. With the use of heat, ZINK-enabled Printer then activates and makes colors with these crystals. The procedure then brings full-color, great quality, enduring and smudge resistant images without the use of pesky and messy ink cartridges, ribbons or toners.

PROS

  • Small and lightweight, ultra-portable (fits your pocket)
  • Direct printing from mobile devices with Bluetooth and NFC technology
  • Fast printing (less than a minute)
  • No Ink, No Toner, No Ribbons needed for printing (less messy)
  • Makes smudge-proof photos and stickers
  • Rechargeable 500mAh Lithium battery charges for 1.5 hours (capable of approx. 25 prints)
  • Easy to use (one single button – turning on the device)
  • Comes with a very useful App with lots of editing features
  • Sheets of Photo Paper used for this device are not as expensive as Fujifilm Instax

CONS

  • Not the best printing quality
  • Can only print on 2 x 3 inch size photo paper (Zink Paper)

If printing quality is a big issue, this is not the best photo printer as  other printers like Canon Selphy printers create better resolutions and bigger images. However, for a mobile printer with this size and portability, by far as of the moment nothing comes close to its functionality if we are to compare this printer with other printers of the same class.  As from this writing this product has a full 5 Star rating form Amazon.
