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).
The highly anticipated update to Apple’s MacBook Pro line has finally come. It’s been a wait since it’s last iteration but look what goodies they’ve been working on; most notably the OLED Touch Bar with Touch ID that sits just above the keyboard. The Touch Bar dynamically changes display depending on the application you’re using giving you a whole new set of tools helping you navigate around quicker. It’ll also let you pay for things just like you can with the Touch ID on the iPhone. Very nice. 130% faster graphics, up to 10 hours of battery life, 100% faster flash storage, and it features the most colourful and brightest Mac notebook display ever (you can quote them on that, I just did). There’s also better speakers, a trackpad that’s up to 2x bigger… that’s huge. Unlike the iPhone 7, it still has a 3.5mm audio jack, but it does lack all the ports we’re used to like USB, HDMI, SD Card slot, MagSafe charge and has instead opted for Thunderbolt 3 ports that support USB-C. It comes in Silver and Space Grey.
The DJI Mavic Pro is a remotely controlled drone that records stabilised video in 4K, has a range of over 4 miles, a flight time just shy of half an hour, it weighs just 743 grams and folds down to smaller than 20cm at it’s longest side. It’s also one of the sexiest drones out there, but there’s more to this beast… It’s FlightAutonomy system giving it the smarts for precise hovering and avoiding obstacles with help from it’s 5 cameras, GPS + GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System to you and me), 2 ultrasonic range finders, redundant sensors and 24 computing cores. Let’s talk about speed. With FlightAutonomy it goes up to 22mph while avoiding obstacles. Not fast enough? Sport Mode gives you speeds of up to 40mph. Not bad for something you can throw in your backpack.
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.
