It’s day who-knows-what of quarantine now and everyone’s doing whatever they can to stay sane. While other people are binge-watching on Netflix, reading books, listening to podcasts, or learning new things, I have been going through TWICE content.
Just recently, they posted a video of the group’s resident gamer Mina playing Minecraft on what appeared to be an HP Omen 15 gaming laptop. This, along with a conversation with our gaming writer Gab, prompted me to write this article.
Let this also serve as an answer to one of our Twitter follower’s question:
GadgetMatch ppl are once? 😯 https://t.co/21GNMGOtbv

One more thing before we dive in. This exercise is truly just for fun. If I get any information wrong, feel free to nicely point it out to me. We’re doing this list by age so that’s NaJeongMoSaJiMiDaChaeTzu. Let’s go!
Panasonic’s Micro-Foaming Cleansing Device
We’ve seen Nayeon go on VLIVE (a popular video live streaming service for K-Pop idols) several times talking about how she feels lazy removing her makeup. Well, guess what, here’s something that can help.
Not only is the Panasonic Micro-Foaming Cleansing Device great for makeup removal, it’s also gentle on the skin and provides some deep cleaning. It’s a device that’s highly recommended for people who wear makeup and would like to make sure they thoroughly (but gently) clean their face at night.
Dyson V11 (Vacuum cleaner)
TWICE has talked about how Jeongyeon has been the member who’s in charge of cleaning. In one variety show, Jihyo — the group’s leader — even pointed out how Jeongyeon would vacuum especially when she has a lot on her mind. She also mentioned that they had a huge vacuum so perhaps it’s time to upgrade!
The Dyson V11 is a smart and powerful cordless vacuum. It has three different cleaning modes as well as switchable nozzles depending on what surface or area you intend to clean. It even has an LCD screen that shows information like power mode and filter maintenance reminders. It’s a must-have for someone like Jeongyeon who likes to tidy up.
MacBook Pro 16”
Best girl, best dancer, and best Japanese woman ever Momo Hirai is emerging as also the group’s best vlogger. In 2019 she once went on VLIVE for over seven hours non-stop. She also documented and has released several episodes of her trip to Hawaii with
soulmate fellow Japanese member, Sana. Previously, she also had a series with another member — who is also best girl — Chaeyoung called MoChaeng TV.
You know, Momo has a knack for vlogging. She previously talked about editing some of these clips only on her phone. However, imagine if she had a full video editing suite at her disposal? That’s where the MacBook Pro 16” comes in. It’s a powerful notebook and already comes with iMovie. She can also opt to go the pro route and get Final Cut Pro — an app I am more than willing to teach her how to use.
InvisaWear smart jewelry
Sana and gadgets don’t exactly match do they? She held onto a red iPhone for the longest time until it broke, and of course there’s that laptop that she had trouble with. So for our miss “shy, shy, shy,” I’m picking the InvisaWear smart jewelry.
These are essentially easy-to-reach panic button accessories. Not that we hope she’ll need them but when paired with the app, it’ll send an SOS message to five contacts which will include your GPS location. There are also a few designs to choose from that could match both Sana’s cutie and sexy sides.
Fitbit Versa 2
As the leader of the group, Jihyo might be the member who has to balance so many things the most. She’s also been shown to be really into fitness especially over the last two years.
What better gadget to pair with her than a fitness wearable — the FitBit Versa 2. Other than putting a lot of focus on fitness, it’s also stylish, has apps like Spotify so you can listen to music while working out, and tracks other things like sleep and heart rate.
Resident gamer Mina seems like she probably already has all the possible gaming things she needs for their kind of lifestyle that has them travelling a lot. So it was tough trying to figure out what to match her with.
Enter the Alienware UFO. It’s only a concept for now, but what it is essentially is like a Nintendo Switch but for PC games. We’re not sure if it’s coming out anytime soon but it certainly matches Mina in so many ways. Not only is she a gamer, the Alienware brand kind of also matches her out-of-this-world visuals.
I have to admit, I don’t know much about Dahyun other than that she’s probably the goofiest member and that she has this uncanny ability to spot cameras wherever they may be. I also know she wears glasses so I’m just gonna go with that.
The Huawei X Gentle Monster collaboration blends together fashion and tech. The smart eyewear can play music and be linked to a virtual assistant. The lenses can also be changed to prescription ones so Dahyun can still look stylish even with these on.
iPad Pro 2020
Aside from being the main rapper, Chaeyoung is also known to be the member who has participated the most in lyric-writing for their songs. She’s also one hell of an artist, even designing a version of their album covers and some of the group’s merch. She’s creative in every sense of the word.
What better device to help this Strawberry Princess (she’s very fond of strawberries, thus the nickname) unleash all her creativity than with an iPad Pro 2020. It’s a device built for creatives. She can do her sketches, write lyrics, and she can even use it to record a demo version of songs she’s written. Can’t think of a more perfect pairing.
Every Tzuyu stan knows how fond she is of dogs but no one will come close to Gucci. The cute little Pomeranian has been with her since pre-debut days but because of work, they haven’t been together as much.
PetCube Bites will let Tzuyu check on Gucci even from a distance. The camera records and sends the footage to a cloud, making sure she won’t miss anything. It will also let her throw treats for and talk to Gucci.
Do you agree with our picks? Which TWICE member is your bias and what do you think is Her GadgetMatch? 😉
Watch: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie main trailer
Anyone feeling nostalgic?
Everyone’s favorite anime heroine growing up is back with an all new animated movie. Netflix just released the full main trailer for Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie!
Here’s the synopis on the trailer:
When a dark power enshrouds earth and a dark circus troupe appears after a total solar eclipse, the scattered Sailor Guardians must reunite to bring light back into the world…
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon or simply known as Sailor Moon for many was originally created by Naoko Takeuchi. The Eternal movie is directed by Chiaki Kon (‘The Way of the Househusband’, ‘Nodame Cantabile: Paris Edition & Finale’), with music by Yasuharu Takanashi (‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal’, ‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal Season III’), with Kazuko Tadano (‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon’, ‘Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens’) responsible for character designs and TOEI Animation / Studio DEEN for animation production.
League of Legends’ animated Netflix show is coming soon!
Out by this fall!
The new animated series is titled Arcane. And, it’s coming from the League of Legends (LoL) publishers themselves: Riot games. Despite releasing countless animated shorts, Arcane is a first for the League franchise. Riot Games partnered with Fortiche Productions to develop and produce this series; keeping character designs and art close to home.
Since the first hint of it in 2019, fans have been waiting patiently for this release. And if you want the series now, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer. It’ll be out on Netflix and on Tencent Video in China by fall this year.
We follow two iconic League champions, their origins, and the power that tears them apart. The backdrop to the story is the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun.
Riot Game’s Global President of Entertainment, Shauna Spenley said, “Arcane was created as a love letter to our players and fans, who have been asking us for more cinematic experiences that dive deeper into the worlds and champions in League of Legends.”
Netflix’s video game animated series
Arcane is just one of few new video game adaptation slates in Netflix’s lineup. Which, spells good news for fans and players of games. One recent release was Dota: Dragon’s Blood, an animated series inspired by Valve’s multiplayer online battle arena (moba) game DOTA 2. Other Netflix series based on the video game realm include Assassin’s Creed, Castlevania, Cuphead, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, and Assassin’s Creed.
Couple co-op games to play during the pandemic
Loving from a distance
It goes without saying that the pandemic has drastically altered our lives. And, for the lucky few who’ve found love amidst the global chaos or barely kept their love life while apart, playing games has become one of the best past time in quarantine.
Below are cooperative games you can play with your partners or friends. We’re open to all forms of love here. Also, note that this list won’t include classic multiplayer games like Minecraft, Stardew Valley, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons because I’m assuming you and your partner or friends have already played these for an ungodly number of hours. Which, by the way if you haven’t, I recommend you start there.
Not included on this list are multiplayer online battle arenas(mobas) since that’s a whole genre of it’s own. And, I’m sick and tired of blatant sexting and flirting on moba team chats. Get your lives together or stay alone, yeah?
It Takes Two
It Takes Two is a cooperative action-adventure platformer with gripping stories and game mechanics. You play as arguing parents at wit’s end stuck in doll form. The doll form bit is due to your daughter’s attempt to cope with her parents’ eventual split. Speaking of splits, it’s a split-screen multiplayer that allows you to play locally or online. The game mechanics and design are witty and eloquent–drawing you into the characters’ stories.
It Takes Two is a good game to play with your partner to see how well you work through obstacles together–in more ways than one. It Takes Two was developed by Hazelight Studios and published by Electronic Arts under the EA Originals labels.
Heave Ho! is a multiplayer co-op platformer where you and your partner or friends get through tough puzzles using your wobbly and dangly limbs. Grab on to each other’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your way into safety.
Heave Ho! forces you to work together by throwing the other, climbing over, and using our partner to get to the other side. It’s a quirky simple yet challenging game that have left players screaming desperate for hand grabbing. Heave Ho! was developed by Le Cartel Studio and published by Devolver Digital.
Overcooked! 2 is a cooperative cooking simulation video game. It’s the sequel to Overcooked! which had the same game mechanics just without the new and improved stages, mechanics, and features. Overcooked! 2 will make it necessary to yell at each other–which doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You work together as a team to prep, cook, and serve.
It’s the perfect game to play to break the ice, work together, laugh, and panic. Test your relationship, strengthen it, or break up over a silly game. Overcooked! 2 was developed by Team17 alongside Ghost Town Games and published by Team17.
Do two burly Vikings braving the elements sound like a romantic way to spend the night with your partner? No, of course not, but you’ll get hours of entertainment riding together with your nordic allies. Valheim is an explorative survival game. Build yourself a little home, roam the giant wilderness for resources, and hunt some trolls. If Minecraft doesn’t hit the same way anymore, this will probably fill that gap. But make sure you’re playing together, microphone on, and you’ll get lost in purgatory.
Valheim was developed by Iron Gate AB and developed by Coffee Stain Publishing.
