HTC RE Camera

· · · Camera

Whenever Li Xiang got a gadget as a present, I get to keep it because she is not into gadgets! The HTC RE Camera was given to her by her company’s client.

The HTC RE Camera is HTC’s take of the GoPro for the normal consumers like me who are not into extreme sports. The RE Camera isn’t shockproof but it is waterproof rated at IPX7 and that means it can be submerged into water of up to 1m for 30 minutes.

Looking Back 2014

· · · Blog

In Looking Back 2013, I wanted to travel to Japan, but that didn’t happen. However, I am still on Holidays in Hong Kong for 13 days (22nd December 2014 – 3rd January 2015)!

For my 2014 resolution/wish, I think is time to save some money because of all the travelling! And to contradict my previous statement, maybe for the 2014 year end holidays, I hope to maybe travel to Tokyo, Japan.

Sony HDRAS20/B Action Video Camera

· · · Camera

I always wanted a GoPro camera, but I can’t justify spending so much money on a extreme-action video camera because I might not use it often.

I saw the Sony HDRAS20 Action Video Camera and Sony 16GB Class 10 Micro SDHC R40 Memory Card being sold as a bundle on Amazon for US$97 (S$128). It is not Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day but rather sort of a pre-black Friday deal. I bought it because it was a very good deal despite it does not ship to Singapore directly.

Legion Meter – USB Multimeter

· · · Hardware

Legion Meter is a USB multimeter with integrated OLED display designed to accelerate your smartphone or tablet’s charge speed up to 92% faster. A multimeter is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit. A typical multimeter would include basic features such as the ability to measure voltage, current, and resistance (source: Wikipedia).

I backed Legion Meter on Kickstarter on the 29th May 2014 and it was funded successfully on 19th June 2014 after raising US$416,268 out of their initial goal of just US$10,000.
