Bleep Drum Kit

If you really want to make your own music, you should probably learn to play an instrument. If you have a general feel for the beat but aren’t too inclined to dealing with pitch, then percussion may be your forte. Buying the instrument is the next hassle, as you don’t necessarily want to drop a bunch of money on something you don’t know how to play yet.

Nokia Asha 501 wants to give everyone high-end design that’s accessible

Just about every day you see a new smartphone, tablet, or laptop crop up that has a rather lofty price tag attached to it. All of those may have the latest or most impressive hardware and software, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the best. You can still have good quality without paying an exorbitant amount of money. Nokia has been known to make sturdy phones in the past, but they wanted to make a touchscreen smartphone that was affordable.

Gamepop wants you to subscribe for mobile games on their console…hmm

There are a plethora of ways to watch shows and play games, but when it comes to mobile games, you’d think they would just stick to your phone. Well, we saw with the OUYA that this is not always the case. Of course, the resounding success they had on Kickstarter means that others are going to try and pursue the same path in a new way. That doesn’t mean it’s going to be better than the original though.

Do you remember when a new portable gaming system came out and you thought it was a little too pricey? The original Nintendo Game Boy came out in 1989, and started off at around $90.

Archos ChefPad – Too many chefs in the kitchen?

When your parents decided they wanted to go above and beyond for dinner, they would normally pull out an old cookbook and make some crazy dish. Maybe it was good, maybe it was terrible, but they would go back and forth between the book and what they were doing a thousand times over to make sure they were making things correctly.

Meet Earl – a tablet that wants to be your hiking buddy

Bringing a smartphone or tablet with you on a hiking excursion is always a little scary. What will you do if it falls in the mud, hits a rock, or worst yet…loses signal? Devices with a glass face and limited life without an outlet nearby are not the best for outdoor excursions, which is why you should look some something that is tough as you are.

Tobii PCEye Go will let you control your computer with your eyes

We take many things for granted until we no longer have use of them. Chances are you’ve never imagined what life would be like without the use of your hands. No more sending a quick text, handshakes, typing out an email, and the list goes on and on. It can take away a lot of your independence, but thanks to technology, those who are disabled don’t have to feel as though they are completely left out.

Logitech H820e Wireless Headset is as close to freedom you’ll get at work

We dredge through our mornings, coffee in hand, to get in the car to drive to our least favorite place: work. From the moment you sit down, you plug in and stay that way for hours. Those of you who have to use a headset know what a pain it is to get wrapped up in wires from wheeling around your space while taking a call.
