Having looked in the past at a couple of other offerings from Sphero I was keen to add this smallest offering from Sphero to the list. It is a small round object that is controlled by an App that you can even learn to code to make it go through routines.
When I first came across the Spellarium 2 title for a possible review, I thought it was a game based on words and correct spelling. But, not for the first time, I was wrong
I asked to look at this - solely on price - as most camera carrying Drones are not cheap – I am thinking three figures – but this offering is less than £20. In fact only just over a year ago similar items were well into the middle hundreds.
Entering somebody else’s dreams can be a nightmare as your character discovers in this next game.
Braven do a range of speakers that do not object to getting wet, in fact they can even be waterproof. However the most important feature should not be that but the sound quality and here it is rather good from such a small enclosure.
Visit a strange world in the Clouds as you try to rescue a kidnapped brother.
This is a large panel with high resolution that should – for most – be just plug and play, it certainly was for me, my Desktop system normally has a 21inch panel running at 1920x1080, this unit was plugged in and the HDMI lead connected and I was looking at a screen showing 4k resolution that’s 3840x2160 and while icons were smaller all I had done was plugged in and switched on.
Grandma, so they say, knows best, so will you take her advice and enter the Fantastic Worlds.
There are a number of music streaming Apps out there and while most will perhaps settle on one, I get the chance to try several for an extended period. I first looked at Deezer four years ago and things have progressed since then.
Fortunately the downfall of snow that struck recently had cleared by the time I took a look at Winter Wonders.
Listening to music on your mobile phone probably means headphones or earbuds, it seems quite popular among the young to share a set of earbuds, not perhaps great hygienically but if you need to share output an external speaker can improve the volume.
Are you up to the task of joining the Myth Seekers? Now is your chance to find out.
Often the time between product request and its arrival is extended as was the case here so when the box arrived I first thought – before I opened it – that it was a speaker and even when I opened it I was unsure, removal from the box did not require destruction, already a plus point with me.
All the pieces in this game are the same length the same thickness and the same width and you have to make increasingly difficult models using them, no glue no nails no screws just friction to hold them together it is not easy, in fact for some of the models it’s very difficult, or for me anyway close to impossible.
Here a set of Bluetooth earbuds that arrived at the time I was reviewing two recent phones neither of which comes with a 3.5mm sockets so Bluetooth is not a luxury but an essential. These are both small and light and as required for ‘exercise’ stay put once inserted.
Finding love in the middle of a battle is just the start of this next Hidden Object Adventure.
Following up The Mad Scientist, Old Enemies Return in the Greed Series.
Here are a set of headphones with a difference a big difference. Those without hearing problems might perhaps not find the information below useful but for others it might allow both music and speech to be heard a lot better than it otherwise would.
A range of wireless, networked speakers that can talk to each other and to your other network enabled devices to
create a multi-room synchronised sound space.
I thought it would be good to take a longer term look at a few products, some of which will no longer be on the market but that will give an insight into the quality and concerns of different manufacturers. First up is this JVC mini hifi.
The quality of music on most people’s phones is probably not great, I do not mean what they choose to listen to but the output quality, the old motto ‘garbage in garbage out’ is probably true here but even if you input better quality such as .WAV then the device itself probably strangles the quality of the output.
Avanca is not a name that I have previously heard of, this is a Bluetooth and NFC headset, the distance between the two buds is 34cm when the connection is pulled taught, they are designed to go over the ear and round the back of the neck.
Starting in Paris, this next game takes you on a trip to various locations as you seek a missing father
At the start of 2017 I told you about a pair of pioneer headphones, here what are described as DJ Active Monitors while they are that they are also a rather good pair of speakers for home use so even MP3 sounds can sound excellent.
Fancy over-dosing on Hidden Object game play, then read on.
This board game for adults is based on a TV series, as I have never seen it I can only comment on the game. Strangely it has a 17+ rating that until now I did not know exist, I know of 18+ but that was/is a film classification which used to be – in my youth - ‘X’ or I believe ‘H’.
Recently I visited HMS Belfast and saw the whole range of Cello TV’s including the recently reviewed Battery TV offering, here is something that is a first for me in TV’s a curved screen offering although I have reviewed a couple of computer panels that have curved screens.
While searching for your father, you encounter a cursed child.
With backward and forward movement between centuries your character needs to save her daughter
This is a full size (22inch or 32inch available) TV that can run off an internal battery pack, mains power or even off a car cigar lighter socket. Best of all it comes with everything you need even a Philips screwdriver and an external aerial.
