PQI My Lockey USB Fingerprint Reader

Bought the PQI My Lockey USB Fingerprint Reader from Amazon Singapore for S$39.49. Shipping is free because I am an Amazon Singapore Prime member and combined with other orders to make it more than S$60.

As a best security practice, I have been using a different password for different sites. To avoid typing in complex passwords every time I am logging to Windows, I have been using a PIN.

FiftyThree Pencil Stylus

Li Xiang has been drawing a lot on the free FiftyThree’s Paper iOS app lately. That is because she is designing for our new house which is going to start renovation after Lunar New Year (8th February 2016).

I knew about the FiftyThree Pencil when it was launched back in November 2013. I figured that Pencil should work very well with Paper, much better than a normal stylus.

Freefly VR – Mobile Virtual Reality Headset

I got my hands on the Freefly VR thanks to my friend, Stephen. Freefly VR is a mobile VR headset that uses your mobile phone for the VR experience. The screen as the VR screen and your phone’s speaker for the audio.

This differs from normal VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and Razer OSVR because both of them have an in-built screen and audio system but relies on your computer for the VR experience.
