Is playing video games the best part of your day? Do you wish you didn’t have to be home in your living room or at your desk to play? Using your phone to play an app-version of a game that would be far more exhilarating on a bigger screen is only so much fun. What if you had a portable gaming station that had everything you needed to play your favorite games on the go?
The GAEMS Vanguard is an important-looking briefcase that will carry your preferred console anywhere you care to bring it. While their page says to use either a PS3 or Xbox 360 (not included), I’m sure you can use whatever console will play along with the monitor and speakers (it may not fit in the foam padding perfectly though). The LED display is 19”, and the stereo speakers plug in via 3.5mm jack.
There are spaces to secure your console, controllers, and power supply so you don’t have to worry about over-loading the bag that carries your regular arsenal of daily gear. This comes with an HDMI cable and a 100-240v power supply. If you are prepared to pay $350 for what is essentially a carrying case, make sure you would actually put it to use. Of course, do try and make sure you’re not playing Call of Duty while at work. This would be perfect for those who live on the road, or people who live alone and don’t want to buy an entire entertainment center.
Available for purchase on GAEMSpge, found via redferret

The whole idea of pico projectors never really took off, simply because there really wasn’t any real market niche for it to fill up. Apart from that, battery life proved to be an issue, and so were brightness levels which were not up to par for a boardroom sized presentation. Having said that, there are still pico projectors in the marketplace, with new models being released from time to time, although those happen to be rather rare and few in between. Heck, even a company like Samsung has come up with a smartphone that has a built-in projector before, and so did India’s Spice with their Popcorn Projector M-9000 Phone. Having said that, how about a projection clock instead? This is where the Kickstarter project known as Clockety comes in, where it touts being the first smartphone projection clock in the whole world.
This patent pending timepiece is portable, smart, easy to use and comes with a complimentary iPhone app that you are able to wield so that it can control Clockety in the same way that you want. It beats out all of the other projection clocks that are in the market, as those happen to be relatively bulky and are not too portable, not to mention requiring a constant power source, while others do not have the smarts apart from the bare basics of a built-in alarm. Clockety ensures that it has none of the mentioned.
All that you need to do is to make sure it has enough battery power left (which is said to last for up to a year before a battery change is required, now how about that for convenience?) , where the Clockety is then paired up using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Once done, fire up the Clockety app, set your alarm and it is time to hit the pillow and catch up on your beauty sleep.

I am quite sure that we have read enough stories about crime around the neighborhood in the local paper each day, not to mention we probably know someone, or happen to have been a victim before, of such a burglary in the past. Having said that, a fair number of homes still rely on the old school lock and key system, and while it might have worked a couple of hundred years ago, it is not going to be all that effective in this day and age where a little bit of technical skill would allow someone to waltz into your home given enough time, to take all of your treasured possessions in the blink of an eye. Well, Yale, a trusted name in home security for years, intends to slow down and deter thieves from entering your abode with their new range of keyless smart locks that cannot be picked.
Another advantage of having such a “security” system in your home would be the ability to kiss goodbye to regular, physical keys! I know that some of us most probably have experienced having lost our keys at one point in time or another, which leads to a whole lot of inconvenience as you try to remember just where you misplaced that set of jinglers. Apart from that, you no longer have to stash away your spare key hidden away somewhere that only you, your neighbor and the mailman knows about – under the doormat, or perhaps in the pot of your favorite plant.
This new range of keyless locks will sport a sleek new look, simplified installation, and is easily integrated into a smart home wireless network. Apart from that, they have been priced to be affordable enough for homeowners to protect their homes with a Yale Real Living smart lock. One can choose from the new Yale Real Living Key Free Push Button B1L and Key Free Touchscreen T1L Deadbolts that will do away with the key and in place, uses a four-digit security code. This means you can delete the unique code when it is no longer required, which is ideal when friends or visitors drop by. Pair this up with the Yale Digital Recording Door Viewer and you’ve got quite a winning combination here.
