Coolest and most useful tech finds in Taipei

Published

on

I may not be the most techie person on the team, but like others on the GadgetMatch team, I appreciate gadgets and accessories that make my life easier.

The funny thing about technology is that sometimes, you don’t even realize you need them until you get to try them — or in my case, until I stumbled upon all of them beautiful things at Computex, Asia’s annual PC and tech expo. Three days of walking around exhibitions that display the newest (and shiniest) technology available awakened new technological needs in me.

In no particular order, they are:

This pink bonnet that will keep my head warm and play music at the same time

Because god forbid I’d have to listen to music from actual wired earphones! The bonnet connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and then all’s good in the listening department. They also come in many different colors and styles.

Hello Kitty storage that can be plugged into your iPhone

PhotoFast microSD card reader and USB

Let’s stop pretending that 128GB is enough for the hundreds of snaps and selfies we take everyday. This tiny device allows you to store or transfer data from or to your iPhone without any fuss. Plus, they’re Hello Kitty, so who can say no to that? (If you say “me,” I will judge you forever.)

Phone accessories with the cutest characters

I may not know who (or what) these characters are exactly, but they are definitely cute.

Gugu & Momo accessories

The bright, cheery theme of this line of accessories had me wanting every single case and cord they sold.

A sleek iPhone case that’s actually also a powerbank

Instead of carrying around your bulky powerbank, imagine just having this case.

Prologium iPhone case

Admittedly, this is not one of the “cuter” items on the list, but in terms of functionality, it certainly trumps others. (A girl has got to be practical sometimes!)

This case packs an extra charge cycle for your iPhone. The demo showed me that the case is powered by paper-thin battery packs that are water- and tear-proof, although honestly, all I cared about at this point was I wanted the case for myself.

These unknowing storage critters!

These characters are actually storage devices equipped with a Lightning pin and USB jack.

Dog Drive from 3DWIND Technology

I’d buy these things just for being the cute critters they are. The fact they can store data is just an added plus.

Whatever this awesome Donkey Kong setup is

I was told that this is a PC case mod. The awesomeness of it all is that it’s a working computer.

Now, I’m not necessarily a PC user, but things can change and it’s Donkey Kong. I mean, look at it!

I came to Taipei on a work assignment, I come home wanting/needing more gadgets and accessories. Now, excuse me as I scope out more of these amazing finds.

FreeBuds Pro 2

Huawei has released its latest TWS Bluetooth earbuds — the FreeBuds Pro 2 — in the Philippines.

The FreeBuds Pro 2 will retail for PhP 9,999 via Huawei’s Shopee and Lazada shops, online stores, authorized retail outlets.

The device will be available in Silver Blue, Ceramic White, and Silver Frost, with an installment payment option.

ANC 2.0: Creating a quiet world

The latest earbuds feature an adaptive active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, along with the original integrated call noise cancellation to enable users to dynamically listen to their preferred music or content.

This intelligent ANC 2.0 takes what noise cancellation is capable of even further, as the FreeBuds Pro 2 can accurately identify and judge the external sound field environment with changes.

For instance, when a user is in the subway, the noise cancellation effects deepen and reduces severe low-frequency noise. In contrast, when in coffee shops, the ANC intelligently adapts. In any case, the earbuds keep users immersed to whatever they’re listening to.

On top of this innovative technology, the FreeBuds Pro 2 has up to 30 hours of playback time, thanks to its 580mAh charging case. Boosted by its 11mm driver, the earbuds is also rated IP 54 for splash, water, and dust resistance.
