Tech Spotlight

Hello again! It’s time for my Tech Spotlight. In this series, I scout out great tech-related finds and share them. Each week brings three new tech products you can find on Amazon right now. This week, I’m talking about a device for cyclists, a wireless keyboard, and a wi-fi enabled Roomba vacuum.

Have a look at this week’s items before heading over to Amazon for a closer look!

Beeline – Smart Compass Navigation for Bikes

Beeline is a product meant to make routes easier and more fun for cyclists. If you ride a bicycle, Beeline can improve your experience.

This item is a GPS device that helps you find routes and get from one point to another using one of its navigation styles. Cyclists can use Beeline to get a bicycle-friendly route to their destination. They can also choose to input their destination and use the device as a compass, letting it point cyclists in the right direction and find their own unique path.

Beeline attaches easily to a bike’s handlebar. It’s made to resist water and shocks, be easy to view in sunlight, and last quite a while on one charge (up to 30 hours when being used or a month when not in use). This means you can ride in just about any elements without worrying about the device.

This device works through its accompanying app. In the app, you can track rides and distance, add places to your favorites, share your information with other people, and more.

Beeline makes it easier to navigate on a bike with its small and easy to use device. If you bike, take a closer look at the details on Amazon!

UHURU Wireless Full-size Keyboard and Cordless Mouse

This keyboard and mouse from UHURU offers a different design and an easy, wireless way to use your device.

The keyboard does not feature the typical square or rectangular keys. Instead it uses rounded keys that are clearly separated from one another, making them comfortable and easy to use. They also make the keyboard look vaguely vintage, like old typewriters with rounded keys. And there are a dozen hotkeys for you to easily navigate to things you use regularly. The mouse is designed to be soft and comfortable while also lasting a significant length of time. It can also be used just fine without a mousepad, eliminating the need for one on your desk.

This keyboard and mouse use AA and AAA batteries. Battery life is extended through the product’s power-saving design that allows a year or more of use before needing new batteries. And the keyboard and mouse work with many different devices, including Macs and PCs.

If you’re in the market for a new or better keyboard and mouse, consider this pair from UHURU!

iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity

If you’ve heard of Roomba, you likely already know quite a bit about how these small, roving vacuums work. But you might not know you can use wi-fi to control the vacuum from anywhere at any time.

This Roomba is designed to vacuum up all kinds of different things on your floors. It doesn’t just pick up small debris, it can also pick up larger things. It can tell when an area is especially dirty, as well, and go over the area more thoroughly. It works on carpets and hard flooring, and it even has a special brush to knock debris away from walls.

This wi-fi capable vacuum also connects well with smart devices. You can use the connected app to control the Roomba whenever you’d like. If you’re away from home and need to run the vacuum, you can do it right from your phone. You can also learn more about your Roomba’s activities through the app. And if you have a smart assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you can start the Roomba using a voice command.

The Roomba is a well-known and popular vacuum choice. Take a look at this wi-fi connected model on Amazon!

Tech Spotlight

It’s that time again—time for Tech Spotlight! I’m keeping my eyes open to spot technology you should check out. In the Tech Spotlight, I describe three different products you can find on Amazon right now. This week, I’m talking about a helpful little clock, a showerhead speaker, and tech for better sleep. Have a look at what I’ve found before you add them to your Amazon cart!

Clocky, The Original Runaway Alarm Clock on Wheels

If you’re ever late to work or class because you slept in too late, Clocky is the answer. This clock makes it much harder to go back to sleep once the alarm has gone off.

Clocky’s concept is pretty straightforward, but it’s also a fantastic idea. Clocky has wheels that allow it to “run away.” If you hit the snooze button, Clocky will run away while beeping loudly at you. It can drop off of nightstands and roll across the floor. This means you’ll be forced to get out of bed if you don’t want to hear Clocky beeping insistently.

If you happen to have a day where snoozing is okay, you can also turn Clocky into a normal alarm clock by disabling its wheels. You can also customize it by deciding whether to allow some snoozing or disabling the snooze.

If you’re a habitual oversleeper who loves to hit the snooze button too much, check out Clocky and see how you can make it easier to force yourself awake in the morning!

KOHLER K-9245-0 2.5 GPM Moxie Showerhead and Wireless Speaker

This device is two products in one. Looking for a new showerhead? Want a speaker so you can sing along to music in the shower? Moxie does both.

As a showerhead, Moxie is meant to provide a good showering experience. Its full spray is achieved through its “60 angled nozzles,” meaning you won’t just get an unsatisfying trickle of water. You can also choose from five different colors, keeping it simple with white or making things lively with a bright blue, red, or one of the other color options. And the showerhead is just as easy to install as a typical showerhead; there’s no added difficulty just because it’s also a speaker.

The speaker uses a lithium-ion battery that’s built in, and it can be taken out of the showerhead for charging purposes. Bluetooth devices can connect to the speaker, and KOHLER promises as many as 7 hours of playing before the speaker needs to be charged again.

If you’re interested in getting a new showerhead, and if you don’t really want to take your Bluetooth speaker into the bathroom where it’ll get all steamed up, take a look at Moxie from KOHLER!

S+ By ResMed Personal Sleep Solution

If you think you could be getting a better night’s sleep than you are, you might want to look into a device like S+ By ResMed.

With this device, you can learn more about your sleeping habits and your surroundings. S+ uses its sensor to learn about your breathing patterns and movements as you sleep. It specifically focuses on your chest moving as you breathe in and out, as well as how (and how much) you move as you sleep. You don’t need to be touching the device, and you don’t need anything special for your bed. It just uses its sensor to gather information.

It also takes note of things like sounds, light, and temperature as you sleep. After it gathers all its information, it analyzes it and provides suggestions for better sleep. It can take into consideration your environment overnight and then suggest environmental changes that will improve sleep quality.

S+ from ResMed is a straightforward and easy way to learn about how you sleep. If you’d like to get a better night of sleep, learn more about the S+ on Amazon!

It’s that time again—time for another Tech Spotlight! I’m on the watch for cool, fun, and helpful technology you can buy right now. Each week, I’m writing about three of the items I’ve found.

This week, I’m shining the spotlight on a 360-degree camera, a light for indoor plants, and a stress management device. Take a closer look at each item, then add it to your cart on Amazon!

Giroptic IO2-2K iO Pop HD 360 camera

This camera from Giroptic makes it easier to take 360-degree photos and videos with your smartphone. It’s available for Android and iOS, so whether you have a Galaxy or an iPhone, you can capture in 360 degrees.

iO Pop is pretty straightforward when it comes to setting up. You use the iO360 app to manage the device, and you simply plug the device into your phone using one of the included connectors. After you plug in the device, the app will open.

Photos are in 4K, while videos are in 2K. Photos and videos are stored on your device, and using the app, it’s easy to share them all on the social media platforms you use. You can also livestream—your 360-degree video can stream straight to Facebook, YouTube, or Periscope.

Though it is possible to create 360-degree content in less expensive ways, it can often be tricky, and the results aren’t always great. The iO Pop promises to be easy and provide good quality photos and videos. Check out more about the iO Pop on Amazon!

SimLife LED Plant Grow Light Kit

This pretty flower pot is a smart way to take care of your houseplants inside by providing them with all the “sunlight” they need.

The light kit from SimLife is an attractive white or pink basket-shaped flowerpot with an LED light. It’s meant to mimic sunlight so plants can get the light they need to survive and flourish. The light has 3 settings so you can choose what’s best for your environment. When the flowerpot is turned on, the light stays on at all times. When it’s set to auto, the sensor in the front of the flowerpot detects whether there’s enough light for the plant and turns the LED light on and off as needed. Off, of course, turns off the light.

This grow light kit is designed to be convenient. It plugs in to any USB port, even with low power. You can also use a DC adapter if you don’t want to stick with USB. You’re also able to take the soil pot out of the grow light pot, which makes it easier to remove, add to, or work with your plant. And the item even comes with a little watering pot for keeping plants hydrated.

If you like to keep indoor plants but have trouble keeping them in the sun, try out this grow light kit from SimLife!

Spire Stone: Stress Management and Activity Tracker

The Spire Stone is meant to help you stay aware of your stress and work to manage it.

This wearable device is attached to specific areas of your clothing and keeps track of your breathing and other activity. The device is always working to monitor your breathing and make sure your breathing patterns don’t suddenly change. When the Spire Stone detects stress indicated by a specific change in breathing, it gives a “gentle notification” so you can address the issue. It also keeps up with things like your steps and other activity.

Using the accompanying app, you can pause during times of stress and follow along with a guided meditation or with visual exercises. You can also look at your “breath-wave,” which shows you your breathing in real-time.

Spire Stone is designed to be as convenient as possible. Its battery can last up to 10 days, and when it needs to be charged, it’s placed on the wireless charging pad that comes included. It’s also “washer-proof,” meaning if you accidentally keep it attached to your clothing when you wash your laundry, it won’t be ruined.

If you’re dealing with stress and want to learn more about the Spire Stone, check it out on Amazon!

Welcome back to another installment of Tech Spotlight! Each week, I’m talking about cool and useful tech you should know about. This week, I’m putting a lifestyle tracker, soundbar, and wireless charger in the spotlight. Check them out, then make your purchases on Amazon!

Moov Now

This device is a visually pleasing and useful fitness tracker you wear on your wrist or ankle. Moov Now can help keep up with running, cycling, gym workouts, boxing, swimming—any exercise you might do.

With Moov Now, you get audio coaching as you make your way through your workout. It provides motivation and tells you the progress you’re making in real-time. It monitors activity and sleep, and it keeps track of a variety of types of exercises. It can go everywhere with you—it’s light, waterproof, and can last 6 months on its battery.

Your workouts are broken down with different statistics and pieces of information. Runners, cyclists, and swimmers can check out analytics from their workouts and learn how to improve. When running and walking, you can learn about your pace, technique, and more. When swimming, you can find out more about your lap times and turns. You can also follow along with boxing and body weight training tutorials.

There are many different fitness trackers on the market, but Moov Now looks great (especially with its various different colors), does a wide variety of things, and is incredibly affordable (at a little more than $50). Check it out on Amazon and purchase it for your exercise needs!

Anker PowerPort Wireless 5 Pad

Anker’s PowerPort wireless charger is a great choice for charging your iPhone, Galaxy, or other smartphone without plugging it in with a cord. The PowerPort Wireless 5 Pad is designed to make charging easier while maintaining safety.

This wireless charger works on a variety of phones. It’s primarily targeted at newer iPhones—like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X—but it works on other devices, like newer Galaxy models, Google Nexus 6, and others. When compared with standard chargers, this wireless charger can make charging a little bit quicker. It doesn’t compromise its safety standards when charging, either. It’s designed to meet safety standards, and it has temperature control that keeps it from overheating.

Anker’s wireless charger is also particularly nice because you can charge your phone without taking your phone case off. Unless you use a very thick (or metal) case, the charger will work fine. With some wireless chargers, you have to go through the sometimes tedious task of removing your case every time you want to charge, so this feature can save some time and hassle.

Having to plug and unplug your phone from a charging cord can be annoying. With a wireless charger, it becomes completely unnecessary. Take a closer look at Anker’s wireless charger and add it to your cart!

Samsung HW-M360 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer

This soundbar from Samsung is a great way to improve your home audio experience without breaking the bank. With high ratings and a comparatively low price, the Samsung HW-M360 Soundbar is a budget entertainment option.

The HW-M360 offers Dolby Digital sound with 2.1 Channel surround sound audio. It also comes with a wireless subwoofer. Many systems use wired subwoofers—being wireless means you can experience great bass after placing the subwoofer wherever works best for your home.

This soundbar also can connect to your devices and allows for easy control. If you have a Samsung TV, this soundbar can connect to it easily. It has Bluetooth, which offers a couple nice features: you can turn the soundbar on from your smartphone (or other Bluetooth-capable device), and you can stream music from those devices straight to the soundbar. You can also use Samsung’s app to control the soundbar further from a device. You can use the app to turn up the volume, customize your sound settings, and more.

Whether you have a Samsung TV or not, Samsung’s HW-M360 is a reasonably priced and well-reviewed home theater choice. If you’re in the market to improve your audio experience, learn more about the soundbar on Amazon before making your purchase!

Tech Spotlight

Hello, and welcome to the newest Tech Spotlight! This week, I’m continuing to highlight some of the tech that’s caught my eye and raised my interest. Like every week, the items I’ve found are cool, fun, incredibly useful, or all of the above.

The items I’ve found this week are an Echo Dot accessory, a TV touchscreen projector, and a solar light. Take a look at what I’ve found, then head on over to Amazon to take a closer look and add them to your cart!

The Spot by Dot Genie

The Spot is an accessory you’ll want if you have an Echo Dot or one of more than half a dozen other small speakers. This accessory allows you to keep your speaker at the ready while mounting it out of the way.

The Spot is a speaker holder that mounts your speaker using your outlet. You place your speaker in the holder, which holds it in with small tabs, then plug it into a wall outlet through the mount’s designated spot. This allows you to have your speaker mounted on the wall instead of taking up space on the countertop or desk. They’ve also designed the mount to prevent sound from being muffled.

This accessory also helps eliminate some clutter. You use your speaker’s plug, but the Spot comes with its own shorter cord that connects to the plug and makes things less messy. This accessory can plug into vertical or horizontal plugs. It’s also designed to avoid blocking the outlet above it, so it only takes up one space.

Speakers like the Echo Dot are small and convenient, but they can be even more convenient with an accessory like the Spot. It comes in five different colors, so check it out and choose the colors you need for each room!

Touchjet WAVE Android Tablet Virtual Touchscreen TV System Projector

This is a product you’ll want if you work with others in meetings, run a classroom, or want to use a smart device with the whole family. The Touchjet WAVE can turn your flat screen TV or monitor into a giant touchscreen device.

The WAVE attaches to the top of any flat screen TV or monitor (up to 65”) and projects a touchscreen down onto it. It uses the Android operating system, and it comes preinstalled with some apps already, including some games and a Chrome browser. You can then add more apps that you want.

This device works well in many different situations. It allows people to work together—everyone can easily touch the screen, unlike using a regular tablet. Using the accompanying app, everyone can share what they’re looking at on their devices. And it can be fun for a family, because you can all play games together on the large touchscreen. It also makes it easier to stream your shows, because you can add your favorite streaming apps to the WAVE instead of having to use a separate device.

Whether it’s at home, at the office, or in a classroom, the WAVE can be a fun or incredibly useful addition. Learn more about how it works, then add it to your cart!

Sun King Pico Portable Solar Lantern

This small lamp makes it possible to stay well-lit in the outdoors or at home without any plugs or batteries. The Portable Solar Lantern is a small solar-powered lantern with a sturdy stand.

The lantern is a small, round, yellow lamp that comes with a detachable base. It’s solar-powered, with its charging area located on the back of the lamp. You can leave the lamp on the base to charge it, or you can detach the lamp and easily set it in any windowsill to let it charge while you’re not using it.

The lamp is convenient in many ways. You can get up to 70 hours of use from the lamp with a full charge. It also has three brightness settings—low, normal, and turbo. It’s light, weighing only 150 grams (which, for comparison, is just slightly heavier than a baseball). And it’s water resistant and durable, so you don’t have to worry about breaking it during a camping trip.

Even if you’re not on-the-go or in the great outdoors, this solar lantern is a small battery- and cord-free way to add some light to your home. Head over to Amazon to take a closer look!

Tech Spotlight

Welcome back to our Tech Spotlight, where you can find cool new tech! Every week I’m telling you all about my newest tech finds, from tech accessories to apps to smart devices. All of these items can be found on Amazon, so hopefully you have your Prime account ready to go. This week, I’m showcasing a Bluetooth car transmitter, cooking device, and stylus. Happy shopping!

ZOETOUCH FM Transmitter Bluetooth Car Kit

This transmitter from ZOETOUCH makes it easier to listen to your music of choice while you’re in your car. On top of that, you can take hands-free calls and even charge your devices.

The car kit offers four ways to play music through the transmitter. You can connect via Bluetooth and have your music play over the FM radio. Or you can plug a flash drive into the transmitter, plug an MP3 player in with a cable, or play music from a TF or micro SD card.

You can also use the transmitter’s LCD display and microphone to see who’s calling and answer hands-free. The device is flexible, so you can move it to point in your direction as it’s plugged into your car’s cigarette lighter. And it has two USB ports for charging your other devices, as well.

If listening to the radio just isn’t good enough anymore, or if you want an easy way to take calls in the car, give ZOETOUCH’s Car Kit a look!

ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide

The ChefSteps Joule is a cooking device for anyone, including people with smart devices. This sous vide machine is a high-tech way to cook in any home.

With Joule, you can cook sous vide in a precise and convenient way. All you need to cook is a pot, water, a Ziploc bag, your phone, and the Joule. Sous vide involves cooking food in a water bath at a particular temperature, which the Joule manages nicely. Using the app on your phone, you can maintain the proper water temperature. Just place the Joule, with its magnetic base, in the pan and control everything with the Joule app.

The Joule also makes it easy to control how you cook. You can use the app’s “Visual Doneness” feature to see what food will look like, and you can also find cooking guides in the app. Making things even easier, you can control the Joule with just your voice—if you have Alexa. Joule can be controlled through its Alexa skill, so you don’t even have to pick up your phone to cook with the machine.

If you already have a sous vide machine, the Joule is a small, durable, and smart choice for an upgrade. If you aren’t already cooking sous vide, try out the Joule for precise cooking!

Gouler Active Stylus Digital Pen

This stylus from Gouler makes the Tech Spotlight because of its great reviews, ease of use, and fine point. Many styluses are large and rounded, and they sometimes don’t pair well with every device. This stylus is the answer to those problems.

Gouler’s Digital Pen has a copper tip that won’t wear out, and its point is much smaller than the typical stylus (just 1.6mm). It works with most devices, including most iPads, iPhones, Samsung devices, and more. The Digital Pen is an active stylus, which means it is an electronic device, unlike the passive stylus, which isn’t electronic and simply works like a finger pressing on the screen.

This product comes with a USB cord for charging the pen before use. After a full charge, the Digital Pen can work for up to 10 hours. It has LEDs to show when charging is complete—during charging, the LED will be red, and once it’s fully charged, the LED will turn blue.

Gouler’s Digital Pen is a great choice to replace your passive stylus, whether you’re drawing or writing on your device. Check out their active stylus for a better writing experience!

Tech Spotlight

Welcome to this week’s Tech Spotlight! As always, I’m sharing three tech-related products with you that are fun, interesting, useful, or all of the above. And as usual, you can find all of these items on Amazon. After you’ve read about my finds, you can head straight over to Amazon to place an order with your Prime shipping. This week I’ve found some highly useful tech accessories, as well as a fun new clock for your smart home!

OMOTON Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard

This keyboard from OMOTON is a highly rated Bluetooth keyboard that works with Bluetooth-capable devices. It’s specifically designed to work best with iPads and iPhones—the keypad has hotkeys that are customized for these devices. However, though the hotkeys aren’t guaranteed to work with other devices, you can still use the keyboard just fine with many other devices.

This keyboard makes the Tech Spotlight because it’s a well-reviewed keyboard with everything that’s necessary for typing on your devices. It doesn’t need a ton of bells and whistles—it just works well. It’s Bluetooth, so there are no cords to worry about. It has the keys and the layout you’re used to, so there’s no need to relearn where all the keys are. And the hotkeys can do things like let you control your device’s music and screen brightness.

The Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard uses two AAA batteries, so you might want to consider buying some rechargeable batteries. However, OMOTON notes the keyboard has a long battery life (as long as half a year) because of features like its automatic sleep mode.

Having a Bluetooth keyboard can make using a tablet or smartphone much more convenient. If you’re looking for one, take a look at the Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard from OMOTON!

Seneo Fast Wireless Charger

The Seneo Fast Wireless Charger is a super quick way to charge your device without having to plug it in. It works best for Samsung Galaxy devices, but it can also charge newer iPhones.

This charger can provide a standard charge for an iPhone, but it is able to fast charge Samsung devices when connected with a fast charge adapter (for instance, the one that came with your Galaxy phone). The charger is plugged into the wall, allowing for wireless charging of the device itself. All you have to do is place your phone or tablet horizontally or vertically on the charger.

The charger is also a stand, so instead of laying your phone flat, you can actually see what’s on your phone easily while it’s charging. It also has a light that changes color as the charger connects to your device and then begins charging.

It is important to note that you do need your own adapter to plug the charger into the wall. You also can’t plug the charger into the USB port of your computer. And Seneo makes a point to note that some phone cases will interfere with charging, so you may need to remove your case before charging. However, your case may be thin enough to avoid needing to do this.

A wireless charger like this one from Seneo is a great way to charge your phone without looking for the cord to plug in, and it even makes it easy to continue using your phone as it charges. Head over to Amazon to learn more and add this Fast Wireless Charger to your cart!

LaMetric Time Wi-Fi Clock

This clock from LaMetric is a unique and fun way to keep up with the time and much more in your smart home. The LaMetric Time Wi-Fi Clock uses an artfully pixelated display to show you many different kinds of information, all depending on what you enable.

The clock works on its own, but it’s programmed using the accompanying app on a smartphone. This clock can be programmed to do much more than just tell the time. It can display a large number of other things from the thousands of choices. It can show the weather forecast, email notifications, calendar events, and information from smart devices (like your smart bulb or smart plug). It even connects with Alexa.

The different clock faces include fun pixel art, so each feature you connect adds a little flair to the clock. It also has a speaker, so you can do things like set internet radio stations to play when you wake up. And you can come up with your own clock faces by using LaMetric Developer for customization.

This clock is a cool addition to a smart home. If you want to connect your smart devices to one aesthetically pleasing clock, take a look at the LaMetric Time Wi-Fi Clock!

Tech Spotlight

Tech Spotlight

Welcome to this week’s Tech Spotlight! Each week, I’m sharing some fun and cool tech-related products you can find on Amazon. This week’s Spotlight features a wireless controller, a smartphone camera kit, and a photo printer. Take a look at what I’ve found this week, then go on over to Amazon to add some new tech to your cart!

Myo Gesture Control Armband

The Myo Gesture Control Armband is a wireless controller that makes it easy to control your tech. While wearing the armband, you can make gestures and motions to perform certain tasks with your devices. The armband works by reading muscle activity and through the use of downloadable apps in Myo’s store (the Myo Market).

Using this armband, you can control many different things. Its product description mentions its use for gaming, as well as for things like controlling presentation slides and even flying your drone. You can also use the Keyboard Mapper to connect the armband to your keyboard. There are more than a hundred apps in the Myo Market, so there’s quite a bit you can play around with.

The Myo armband is designed to be convenient. It won’t weigh your arm down—it’s light (the description says it’s lighter than most watches). The battery is rechargeable and works throughout the day. And it’s compatible with many devices, including those using Windows 7 and up, as well as many Android, Mac, and iOS devices.

The Myo Gesture Control Armband is a convenient way to control your devices from a distance with just the motion of your arm. Head over to Amazon to find out more about what it can do!

Telephoto lens kit, 4 in 1 Cell Phone Camera Lens

This camera photo kit from ARORY offers a way to take photos from your phone in a new, fun way. Though many phone cameras do offer a lot more customization and options on their own, this telephoto lens kit gives smartphone photographers more choices for their shots.

The telephoto lens kit comes with 10 items designed to make photographing with your smartphone easier and a little more engaging. It does, of course, come with several attachable camera lenses. There’s a telephoto lens that offers 12x optical magnification, meaning photos can be zoomed in 12x further without the photos suffering from a loss of quality. There’s also a macro lens for close-up shots, a wide-angle lens for larger shots, and a fisheye lens for curved shots.

These are not the only items that come with this kit. There’s also a mini tripod with an attachable phone holder, so you can place your phone in the holder and take photos without worrying about a shaky hand or take a photo of yourself that’s not a selfie. To make this even easier, there’s also a Bluetooth remote shutter. Using this small device, you can take photos from a distance without having to touch your phone. There are also clips to hold the different lenses in place, and there’s a cleaning cloth to help keep the lenses clear of any dust or specks.

Many current smartphone cameras offer reasonably high-quality images, and many people rely solely on their phones to take pictures. This kit can improve the smartphone photo-taking experience!

Prynt Pocket, Instant Photo Printer for iPhone

The Prynt Pocket is a small, portable photo printer for use with iPhone. While you’re on the go, you can print previously taken photos or take new ones to print right away. All you have to do is place your iPhone in the printer and you’re on your way to printing photos anywhere.

The Prynt Pocket works with many different iPhones, from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone X. It uses ZINK Sticker Paper, which is an ink-free paper with a sticker backing (so you can also stick your photos anywhere). The photos print within 30 seconds, so there’s not a long wait for your photos. Oh, and if you like your tech to be pretty, there are several colors to choose from—graphite and white both look fairly clean and standard, but there’s also lavender and mint green.

The Prynt app also allows you to do some fun things with your photos. For instance, after you take a photo with the Prynt app, you can also record a short video to go with it. Then when others point their Prynt app at the photo, they can watch the matching video! You can also use the app to tweak your photos with things like filters and text.

If you take many photos with your iPhone (and if you have an iPhone, I’m confident you do), the Prynt Pocket will make a nice new addition to your accessories!

Tech Spotlight

It’s time again for our Tech Spotlight! Every week, I’m sharing three of my tech finds with you. This week, I’m showcasing three fairly different products—a body camera, a posture device, and an instrument for art. Take a look at what’s in the spotlight this week, and then click over to Amazon to add them to your cart!

FrontRow FR Wearable Lifestyle Camera

This camera from FrontRow is designed to let you capture moments throughout your day. The camera is meant to be worn, and it can be worn on a lanyard, on your own necklace, or as a clip. Then you can go on with what you’re doing and capture it all with the small camera.

The camera can capture hours of footage. You can also livestream to several different social media platforms, including Facebook. Once you’ve captured video, you can use the app to send your videos to your phone.

The camera itself has a touchscreen and buttons. With the touchscreen, you can do things like look at your pictures and videos, as well as control what the camera is doing. You also have power, media, and home buttons. This way, much of what you do is done on the camera itself, instead of controlling everything through your smartphone.

If you’re interested in trying out a wearable camera and capturing more moments of your day, check out FrontRow’s Wearable Lifestyle Camera on Amazon!

3Doodler Create 3D Printing Pen Set with 50 Plastic Strands

The 3Doodler Create is a fun device that lets you “3D print” in midair. Using the pen, you can draw and build on a surface or in the air. You can create art or even make useful little items.

The 3Doodler Create heats plastic that then hardens immediately as it leaves the tip of the pen. This means you don’t have to wait for anything to dry—you just start drawing! The plastic filaments that are used for drawing are non-toxic and come in many different colors.

In the video on their Amazon product page, people are shown drawing and building things like motorcycles, inventions, a piece for a broken remote, a double decker bus, and more. They’re shown either drawing freehand or using a stencil. Stencils and project ideas can all be found for free online.

Whether you want to get creative with a new art project or build a new invention, give the 3Doodler Create a try!

UPRIGHT GO

UPRIGHT GO is a device that can help you work on your posture. The device is simple—it’s a small wearable and a connected app. After placing the UPRIGHT GO on your back, you can begin to track your posture and make changes.

This device builds a program for you so you can train yourself and improve your posture. It tracks your posture and your progress, so you can look at your stats and see how you’re doing. There’s also a customer care team that you can contact through the app at any time. They can help keep you on track and encourage you to do what you need to do to meet your goals.

Another way the device keeps you focused on your posture is by alerting you when you’re slouching. If you slouch, the UPRIGHT GO will vibrate to warn you that you need to maintain good posture. With all of these features, Upright says you’ll begin to notice your posture improving after just two weeks of use.

Bad posture is an issue for many people, and it can be hard to fix. If you want to improve your posture, learn more about the UPRIGHT GO and see if it might work for you!

Victrola Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Suitcase Turntable with Speakers

This turntable from Innovative Technology makes it easier to listen to a variety of different music sources on the go or at home. Not only is it a turntable, it also lets you play music from your device using Bluetooth.

In addition to using Bluetooth, you can also plug other devices in, like speakers or headphones. Of course, it has its own speakers, so it’s not really necessary to plug in different ones. And since it comes in a suitcase with a handle, it’s easy to take anywhere.

Another interesting aspect of this turntable is its design. There are many different colors and patterns to choose from. If you like visually-pleasing tech, you’ll like this product. There are classic-looking colors, but there’s also a tie dye pattern and even a galaxy pattern.

Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set

This Activity Set from Learning Resources is another offering in the fun-but-educational tech toys category. This set helps kids practice coding by giving them something fun to do and getting them involved. Many aspects of coding may appear less than fun at first, but this toy teaches while making it entertaining.

The Code & Go Robot Mouse has kids build mazes using brightly colored maze pieces. Then kids think it through and code the mouse to make it go around the roadblocks, moving through the maze to get to the toy cheese at the end. The mouse itself is also bright and fun-looking, and it also makes sounds, has lights, and moves at two different speeds.

The product description notes that this toy works on several important areas of learning. Kids can learn about critical thinking, as well as problem-solving. And of course, it introduces kids to basic concepts of coding. It does all this while keeping kids’ attention by being visually appealing and “hands-on.”
