FiftyThree Pencil Stylus

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.

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.

Bought the Xiaomi LED Light for S$6.99 during the Mi Fan Festival 2015. There are two colors available, blue and white. I got both since the price is pretty reasonable.

The Xiaomi LED Light is a good alternative to your phone’s flashlight. Just plug it into a power bank and it can double up as a torchlight. The Xiaomi LED Light is diffused so they are easy on your eyes as well.

Blockey is a key management system that can simplify your pockets without spoiling the integrity of design and practicality. It is made of Aluminum 7075 which is known for its strength and scratch resistant components. Aluminum 7075 can also be found in bike shafts, rock climbing gear, aerospace applications, etc.

I backed Blockey on Kickstarter on the 12th October 2013 and it was funded successfully on 14th January 2014 after raising US$39,742 out of their initial goal of US$21,000.

Sony Digital Voice Recorder ICD-UX543F

Sony recently opened its largest flagship store in Southeast Asia at 313@Somerset #02-28 to 37 (directly opposite Starbucks). It occupies 9,902 square feet (920sqm) of floor area and its opening hours are from 10am to 10pm daily.

As a Sony member, we are given S$50 to spend at that store and surprisingly when I went there, there is nothing interesting for me to buy. Instead it is my mom who used the voucher and bought the Sony Digital Voice Recorder – ICD-UX543F for S$189 so that she can record meeting minutes.

Derrick Koh who is the Head of Communications for Lenovo in Asia Pacific drop me a message on Facebook and ask me whether I am free to attend the Lenovo’s booth media tour. Since I am available, I pop by the Lenovo booth together with Jason Goh.

We previewed some of the new phones like the Lenovo S860, Lenovo S850, Lenovo S660 and a new tablet which is the Lenovo Tablet HD+.
