CES 2014: Razer reveals the Nabu Smartband

by: Travis - - Add a Comment

Razer is known well in the gaming community, which has led to bit of a shocker with their recent announcement of the Nabu Smartband. Described as the world’s smartest wristband, the Nabu can deliver notifications from either an iOS or Android smartphone, track fitness with various sensors, and communicate with other devices for social connections.

The Nabu features two OLED notification screens which serve both public and private purposes. The advanced sensors can track data ranging from steps walked to stairs climbed. An included utility application can customize and view the data collected through the Nabu.

Displays and sensors:

  • Public icon screen: 32x32 pixel OLED
  • Private message screen: 128x32 pixel OLED
  • Accelerometer
  • Altimeter
  • Cylindrical vibration motor

Software:

  • Works with iOS + Android
  • Downloadable Nabu Utility app for notifications, data, and other settings

Power and battery:

  • Lithium-polymer battery
  • 7 days between charges
  • USB charging cable included

Water resistance and operational requirements:

  • Rain and splashproof
  • Operating temp: - 20°C to 45°C/ -4°F to 113°F

The Razer Nabu will be available worldwide in late Q1 2014 with a price yet to be announced. Developers for the device can sign-up to purchase the Nabu for $49. Further details can be found on the Razer Nabu website.

CES 2014: Linksys debuts beast of a router

by: Dan - - Add a Comment

While roaming the floor at Digital Experience, we wandered by the Linksys table and found a bit of a flashback design on their newest router.   The company was debuting the dual-band WRT1900AC router inspired by the iconic WRT54 design. The WRT1900 AC has a few updates though, as it is AC wireless, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, four removable antennas and 128MB of memory.

After taking a look at it I can confirm that it is one of the beefiest routers I have ever seen and frankly, I prefer the external antenna design to the internals that have dominated routers in recent years. If you want to update to the most-current Wi-Fi available, then the WRT1900AC will be available in Spring 2014 with a MSRP of $299.

Vizio gets a bit bigger in the sound bar market with 54”Sound Bar

by: Dan - - Add a Comment

Last week, Vizio announced that their Sound Bar market would be getting a bit bigger, literally. With the release of the VIZIO 54" 3.0 Home Theater Sound Bar (model S5430w-C2), Vizio has a sound bar length to match any TV in their stable as well as most TVs on the market today. The 3.0 series sound bars have deep bass modules built into the bar to eliminate the need for external subwoofers, Bluetooth to wirelessly connect your devices and a handy remote with display. The nice think about the 54” length is that it will easily work with TVs 55” and larger, whether it be on a entertainment center or attached to the wall. The S5430W is available now for $299.99 directly from Vizio, and will be at one of their retail partners such as Target, Costco, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Amazon or Best Buy in the near future. We expect to be able to take a long look at the S5430W at the 2014 CES next month, if not sooner.
