Founded in 2010, The Vortexgear company set out to improve the craftsmanship of keyboards and change their dull image into a piece of equipment to be proud of. The Vortexgear KBC Pok3r has done just that.
This mechanical keyboard is 60% the size of a full width keyboard, has a metal casing and PBT keycaps sitting on your choice of Cherry MX switches, giving you control over key pressure and click loudness. The keycaps are easily interchangeable if you want to upgrade it with new colours or change the QWERTY layout to DVORAK or COLEMAK.
The Pok3r Mechanical Keyboard has three programmable layers on top of it’s default keyboard layer, meaning you can set different functions to different keys up to three times. At the press of a button you can switch from the default typing keyboard to one set up for your gaming rig, or one for your development environment, or even one that’ll type your most commonly typed phrases or email addresses with a single click.
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.”
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.
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.
