Motorola H17txt Bluetooth headset with MotoSpeak

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010

Motorola’s new H17txt model can be paired with the company’s new MotoSpeak text-to-speech application to read text messages out loud as they come in. The software is available for Android and BlackBerry at first, and will supposedly translate 150 different commonly used acronyms.

That means that when it reads l8r it will say later. The headset is pretty standard, with CrystalTalk noise-canceling technology, five hours of talk time and seven hours of standby, and Bluetooth 2.1 compatibility.

Astro A30 Headset for your PC, consoles and phone

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2010

The Astro A40 headset is designed for professional gamers and costs $250. The A30′s will only cost you $149, which is still way too expensive for a pair of gaming headphones, but closer to what we can all afford. The A30 has features like a detachable mic so you can use them as normal headphones after your gaming.

But it doesn’t ditch the amp and cords setup that made using the A40′s with the Xbox such a chore. Maybe that doesn’t bother you and if so, these look like they’re worth checking out if you have the scratch.

BlueAnt updates Q1 with A2DP support

Posted in BlueAnt by Shane McGlaun on December 2nd, 2009

blueantq1-sbI like it when manufactures add new features to the gadgets I own via firmware updates and don’t charge me any more money to get the features. This is what Apple does for the iPhone, Sony for the PS3, and now BlueAnt is doing the same thing for its Q1 Bluetooth headset.

The Q1 headset already has a lot of features, but the device lacked A2DP support for streaming audio from a smartphone to the headset. Streaming music might not be that great considering the headset is not stereo, but I am all for streaming directions from my iPhone navigation app.

Nokia’s song-inspired Bluetooth headset designs

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2009

Nokia' song-inspired Bluetooth headset designsNokia’s Music Almighty headset design competition attracted 6,000 entrants, and Nokia is showing off the five winning designs, which have been manufactured as fully-functional one of a kind headsets. The rules were that all of the headsets had to be inspired by a song.

So naturally that inspired a wide range of designs, like the Daft Punk “Robot Rock” set above, which we like the best. It was inspired by Daft Punk’s “Robot Rock” and was designed by G. Smith. Pretty clever competition.

VR headset mimics all five senses

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2009

VR headset mimics all five sensesWhat you are looking at in the pic above is a virtual reality helmet that recreates sights, smells, sounds and even tastes from far-flung destinations. Created by British scientists, the device will allow users a life-like experience of places such as Kenya’s Masai Mara while never leaving home. You could greet friends and family on the other side of the world as though they were present in the same room. Previously, scientists have only had success with virtual reality technology recreating sound and vision. This helmet named the Virtual Cocoon could change all that.

The prototype helmet connects wirelessly to a computer which feeds information about a virtual world or another part of the real world. It features a high definition high dynamic screen that produces pictures ten times darker, or 30 times brighter than the conventional television. A tube is connected to a box of chemicals which releases smells under the wearer’s nose, while a similar device can spray flavors directly into the mouth and provide a texture of sensation.
