Dyson’s Airwrap is the hair curler we’ve all always wanted

Only uses hot air and isn’t as damaging to hair!

Published

on

Dyson, the makers of top-of-the-line devices like the Supersonic Hairdryer and the PureCool, has just unveiled their latest products and ladies. It will blow your mind!

This is the Dyson Airwrap.


 

Long story short: It will curl your hair. But, there’s more to it than that. The Airwrap uses air to curl hair which means it’s less damaging to your tresses. How exactly is that possible?

Using the high-power Dyson V9 motor, this styler blasts out air in high velocity around the Airwrap. This creates what is called the Coanda effect which means that your hair sticks to the curler, easy peasy. Still can’t picture it? Dyson’s got visuals:

Aside from being less damaging to hair because of this air and heat system, the Airwrap has intelligent heat control which measures temperature up to 40 times per second to ensure your hair doesn’t fry.

Also because of this new technology, using the Airwrap results in a sleeker, more natural look, or so Dyson claims. With three different attachment variants, you can style your hair any way you want.

Dyson has even made tutorials to show you girls how, specifically, all these different styles are done.

Like all premium Dyson products, this beauty tool doesn’t come cheap. According to today’s New York announcement, Airwrap prices start at US$ 500, with US$ 550 being for the version with all the possible attachments.

And yes, I know that any device that will make my hair look great with the perfect curls is priceless, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if the Airwrap is actually worth its weight in gold.

How to use your selfie camera for better photos

The front-facing camera is all you’ll ever need

Published

on

When someone says “selfie,” most people think of photos similar to this:

Shot with the Honor 10 Lite

And while there’s nothing wrong with photos like these, I’m here to tell you that pictures with your smartphone’s front-facing cameras can be way better. No, really.


In this article, I’ll walk you through how to get picturesque selfie shots that are Instagram-worthy.

First off, you’ll need a smartphone with a powerful selfie cam. Gone are the days when front shooters were considered secondary cameras. Brands have now recognized the importance of selfie shooters and they’re now putting in even better ones — thank heavens! The weapon of choice for this activity was the Honor 10 Lite with a 24-megapixel camera equipped with AI.

The next step is finding a great spot. Find a way to mount your phone — whether it be with a phone tripod, or entails propping it up on a wall or your coffee mug (like I did). What’s important is that your phone is on a stable place. Now you can fix your framing!


The camera timer is the most commonly used feature for these photos. All you need to do is turn it on and pose.

My favorite selfie feature would be the Palm Gesture. Simply raise up your palm when you’re ready. This saves you the trouble of having to physically tap the shutter button over and over. On the Honor 10 Lite, there’s also the Smile Shutter feature which triggers the shutter every time you smile, and the Volume Control feature which triggers the shutter when you say “Cheese,” or when your voice reaches a certain decibel.

How Palm Gesture works

What I love about shooting with the selfie cam is the fact that it shows me what my photo looks like before I hit the shutter. This means I can move around and make sure none of my body parts are cut out. I can also make sure I’m not shooting an unflattering angle and adjust accordingly. Here are just some samples I shot with the Honor 10 Lite:

Volterman’s smart wallets connects to your smartphone

Equipped with cameras

Published

on

The one precious thing you bring with you every day, aside from your smartphone, is your wallet. This little thing basically houses all your precious and important cards, cash, and even IDs. So, how can we ensure we never ever lose it?

Volterman makes it easy with their high-tech wallets.


Pictured above is the Volterman Travel, designed to fit passports, boarding passes, and every important thing you need for your jet setting. This is just one of the many Volterman wallets offered (there’s a smaller bifold and an even more compact card holder).

These wallets look stylishly classic and are very well made. Look at it completing this dapper look!

What’s so special about these Volterman smart wallets? First of all, they can wirelessly charge your phone. The Volterman Travel, pictured below, has a whopping 5000mAh power bank.

The wallet connects to your phone and allows tracking wherever you are. You get alerts every time your wallet is opened and there’s even an alarm function to ensure you never leave your wallet again. As an added feature, there’s also a Wi-Fi hotspot feature which means more hassle-free connections wherever you go.

As for the ultimate feature… see that tiny black bar near the wallets flap? That’s a camera. If despite all the features you still manage to lose your wallet, or if some evil persons decide to steal from you, they won’t be getting away that easily. Once you turn on lost mode, this camera will take a photo (and hopefully capture the perpetrator’s face) and automatically send your phone an image. Talk about adding on some safeguards.
