Roli BLOCKS let you build your own modular music studio. With the Lightpad BLOCK at its heart, you can tap it, stroke it, hard or soft to create sounds and beats for your next track. It features a 15×15 LED matrix with 5D Touch capability on the silicone surface allowing you to sequence, loop, and finger drum with expressive control.
Being modular, you can connect more BLOCKS giving you even better control over your music. The Roli Lightpad BLOCK is pocket-sized at 94mm x 94mm and connects to your iPhone or iPad through Bluetooth so you can make music on the go with the free Roli NOISE app (iOS) or other third party apps. If you’re into making music on something a little bigger, it also connects with any desktop app that supports multidimensional polyphonic expression (MPE).
You may know this console by it’s rumoured name the Nintendo NX. Available to buy in March 2017, this console bridges the gap between a stay-at-home console and an out-and-about gaming machine. The beauty of Nintendo is it’s inclusiveness. Other consoles have evolved to rely heavily on network multiplayer gaming rather than the old-school style of actually being in the same room. Nintendo has kept this tradition alive with it’s modular controller that can be taken apart to be used as two controls so you can bust out a game of Mario Karts with your mates in the park.
Splash-proof, wireless, and up to 10 hours of music playtime with an interactive light show. The LED lights may seem like a gimmick, but that quickly dissolves into an appreciation of mesmerising ambience while you listen to your favourite tracks. The award winning JBL Pulse 2 also lets you capture the colour light you want to see using the colour-detecting prism on the front. Simply it at the colour you want; be it a wall, t-shirt, or pet, press the button and watch it glow. Accompanied with two 45mm transducer woofers, you’ll literally feel the bass as this speaker pumps, and aside from great sound, you can connect up to three Bluetooth devices allowing you and couple of others to take turns playing the music. The JBL Pulse 2 also has a built-in microphone making it perfect for talking to Siri if it’s connected to your phone, or hosting conference calls if you’re into that sort of thing.
Voice recognition technology has taken great strides in understanding exactly what you want. The Amazon Echo Dot will be your new best friend. Ask Alexa to play music, read the news, set alarms, search for information online, and best of all, it let’s you tap in to any smart devices you have installed around your home. “Alexa, turn off the lights and remind me to go to the gym in the morning.”
