IFA 2017 has brought the world many wondrous gadgets like the LG V30 and Acer Predator Orion 9000, but the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin — one of the world’s biggest consumer trade show — has more interesting gadgets. A lot more.

Here are a few interesting gadgets that caught my eye, straight from the Berlin show.

Special edition Huawei P10 Plus

We’ve all seen the Huawei P10 Plus and what it can do, but never in this color! This special edition P10 Plus is the brainchild of Chinese designer Lan Yu. It comes in a beautiful jewelry box with embroidered cases. Oh, did I mention that the phone itself comes in jade?

LG’s newest flagship, the LG V30, was just released at IFA. It’s a definite multimedia powerhouse! But, aside from its many pros, it comes in the prettiest shade of lavender I’ve seen on a phone! This handset also comes in black, silver, and blue.

This nifty device from Bosch can scan your clothes and automatically forward the information to your washer to ensure the best temperature and wash settings for your garment. As if that isn’t cool enough, it can scan food (even if it’s not on your clothes!) and tell you its composition. In the future, the brand hopes to use this technology to forward information to cooking appliances, like ovens, to ensure the optimum way of cooking the food you just scanned.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry

Published

on

Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.

If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.

Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.

Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.

The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5

Published

Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
