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 the 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+.
Our itinerary for this year MWC was shorter by a day. Despite it being shorter by a day, I find this year trip is more relaxing! We flew in on Sunday, 23rd February 2014 and flew back on Wednesday, 26th February 2014.
Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer that measures the temperature right where you are on your iPhone, iPad and Android devices. I don’t think Windows Phone support will be there since the stretch goal of US$400,00 (in order for Thermodo to come out with a Windows Phone app) was never met. You can download the Thermodo app on Apple App Store or Google Play.
I backed Thermodo on Kickstarter on the 7th March 2013 and it was funded successfully on 10th April 2013 after raising US$336,018 out of their initial goal of US$35,000.
The Moshi Cardette 3 is in its third generation and hence the number 3. It also coincides with USB 3.0, I wonder did they refresh the product each time there is a major release to the USB specifications?
For the unaware, the Moshi Cardette 3 is a USB 3.0 Card Reader that has a built-in 2-Port USB 3.0 Hub. It is lightweight (weighing at 88g) which makes it suitable for carrying around together with your laptop (which is what I am doing). It is retailing for S$69.90.
Leap Motion is a tiny device that allows you to use your hand to interact with your computer other than using keyboard, mouse or trackpad. Just simply wave your hands above the Leap Motion controller and it can detect your hands movement. Think of it as Kinect for computers but smaller and works on both Windows and Mac.
It can tracks all 10 fingers up to 1/100th of a millimeter, your movements at a rate of over 200 frames per second and have wide field of view (150°) and a Z-axis for depth.
