BlueWatchDog: Bluetooth personal anti-theft device

Posted in Bluetooth by Conner Flynn on September 30th, 2009

BlueWatchDog: Bluetooth personal anti-theft deviceBluetooth technology is great for handling wireless, hands-free calls, but I bet you’ve never used it like this. Think of this one as a virtual perimeter device. The BlueWatchDog Personal Anti-Theft Alarm will alert you on your cellphone if someone steals your belongings, like say your wallet and takes them outside of your specific radius.

Basically the alarm will sound in an ear piercing shriek that hopefully will make the thief scared and drop what they are stealing…. Only to have them break it if it’s an expensive device no doubt.

Bluetooth headset and microSD readerBrando is calling this one the Ultimate Bluetooth headset. What’s so ultimate about it? Maybe because it comes with a built-in microSD memory card reader and supports USB charging. Ultimate? Probably not. To be ultimate it would need to be an in-ear iPhone or something.

Still, it is convenient to carry a microSD memory card with you at all times in your Bluetooth headset. And it only costs $39 to give it a go. They also offer an 8GB microSD card bundle for $65.

Posted in Bluetooth by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2009

Car Bluetooth speaker fits inside your steering wheelIf your car isn’t new enough to have Bluetooth integration, this Steering Wheel Bluetooth Adapter may be the perfect solution. It fits around the inner part of a steering wheel with some options for size adjustment. For $63 the adapter sports a microphone and speakers for speakerphone, an LCD display for incoming callers, SD port for MP3s, USB and FM-out so you can play everything back through your car’s stereo.

There is a catch however, the adapter’s power source is your car’s cigarette lighter. You would be connecting your steering wheel to the lighter. Which could be a safety hazard. Unless it’s rechargeable. In that case don’t charge it while driving.

BGP100 Bluetooth gamepad for phonesAlthough we wish it were so, we have to face reality: Your cell phone is not going to become your primary portable gaming device anytime soon. The best it can hope for is offer a decent alternative to the DS and PSP, especially with the iPhone’s capability. But what about other powerful handsets that could prove to be decent gaming platforms, but lack the proper controls?

The BGP100 Bluetooth gamepad for phones aims to fill this void, and supports a bunch of smartphone platforms including Windows Mobile, PocketPC and Symbian UIQ. It features a special twisting design and you can attach the BGP100 to a wide range of phones as long as they do not exceed 55mm in width. If it turns out that your handset is too large for the BGP100, you can also use it as a standalone gamepad when folded up.
