The latest gadget must-haves for the month of November
Swipe For Gains
Swype On from Mobme Asia is a new Android-enabled, downloadable lock screen mobile application that rewards users with cash and other prizes. It brings up an ad with each swipe of a finger, and transitions the action into direct rewards that can be found in the built-in wallet. Users will also be automatically entered into a monthly lucky draw of prizes, rebates and promotions as they use their phones.
Bigger & Better
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 comes packed with a host of upgrades and exciting features, including a 6.3-inch curved AMOLED screen, updated S Pen that is now more accurate and the latest Octa-Core processor. The 12MP dual-lens camera allows for zooming and the addition of DSLR-style effects, plus it comes with optical image stabilisation for stunning photos despite a shaky snap.
Blast From The Past
The Polaroid OneStep 2 is an analog instant camera for the modern era, blending classic design with contemporary style. It looks like its namesake from the old days, but is instead equipped with a high-quality lens, built-in flash and 60 days of battery life. While an ‘i-Type’ black-and-white film has been specially developed for the camera, it can still use the standard 600-type film for instant photos.
Meet the QuietComfort 35 II. These Bose wireless headphones are engineered to provide high-quality noise cancellation. They even have Google Assistant built in, allowing one to play music, receive texts and get answers without having to glance at the phone. Not a Google user? The Assistant button can also be used to conveniently adjust the level of noise cancellation between three settings.
Capture Your Vision
Sony’s RX0 is said to be designed for professionals looking to record high-quality 4K video in challenging environments. The action camera features a 1-inch sensor and Zeiss 24mm lens, as well as shutter speeds of up to 1/32,0000 seconds and up to 16fps. Multiple units can be mounted together and controlled simultaneously through the Sony Wireless Commander or Play Memories Mobile app.
Desktop performance and mobile flexibility come together in the Zotac PI225 mini personal computer. It measures just 95 x 63 x 8mm in size, but is packed with an Intel dual-core N3350 Apollo Lake processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC storage. The casing features a ribbed metal design, which acts like a giant heatsink for the fanless system.
