Alright, this blog will normally be 2 or three posts a week about cool new gadgets, but its the first week! I thought it would be fun to do more gadgets than I normally would. Today I have TWO gadgets for you!
that Bluetooth Stereo Headsets are definitely going to be the way
people are going in a wireless age, I applaud Philips for trying
to get ahead of this game with the SHB 7110, or Tapster.
Not only can the Tapster sync with the user’s MP3 Player or
smartphone, but it has some very unique touch-sensitive controls. I can
only assume that this is why it is called the Tapster, because the
controls are all done by tapping or some touches.
For example, if you want to adjust the volume, just do a single
finger swipe along the ear. Also, if you are switching from music to
taking a phone call, all you need to do is tap yourself on the ear.
All phone calls are advanced with audio
quality with “Full Sound technology and clear calls enhanced by
EverClear”. Not the EverClear, the cool nineties band that
gave us cool songs like “Santa Monica”.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no telling when this Tapster will
be available. So far, the product is showing up on the Philips website,
and you can even buy it. However, I found that when I started the
buying process, I couldn’t get a price, just a little more information.
So, we are looking at some technology that will eventually be released,
but we don’t know the when, or the how much. That seemed a bit fishy to me...
Most of the time you see speakers on shelves or speakers built into
shelves, I think this might be the first speaker that actually is a
shelf. It’ll hold up your books or cds (for those of us that still own some)
and still be able to play your music loud and clear. It is still a
concept design, but I wouldn’t be all that surprised to see these make
it as a real product. It seems there is never a shortage of companies
looking for new looks for their speakers or any audio products for that
The iPod craze has definitely made a large market for iPod
accessories, which happens to include speakers. This would be great
for teens and college students to have a spot for their school books
and a convenient way to play their music throughout the day. The idea
of the design was to make the speakers a part of the room by serving an
actual purpose, besides playing your music. Quite obviously they
definitely succeeded. It was designed by the Polish designers Witek
Stefaniak and Anielka Zdanowicz, hopefully these speakers will get sold
