Equil Smartpen 2 Or How To Instantly Convert Your Hand Notes Into Digital Format
Equil Smartpen 2 is a “magic pen” that allows you to take classic paper notes and instantly transfers them to your smartphone or tablet in digital format.
The Smartpen is powered by a rechargeable battery which allows 8 hours of constant use on a 2 hours charge, connects to your iOs, Android, Windows and Mac via Bluetooth for notes importing, storing file management on the device, includes built-in memory and handwriting recognition software to save your notes while not connected to your smartphone as well as cloud sync with most cloud services out-there including Dropbox, iCloud or Evernote.

The coolest part about the Equil Smartpen 2 is that, unlike most similar devices, it does not require a special pad or special paper to work. Simply grab any piece of paper, start scribbling or writing your notes and watch them transfer on your phone in real time! Simply cool, isn’t it?

UPDATE 11/14/2014 – I received a handful of comments from backers of the Equil Smartpen 2 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign notifying me about delivery issues concerning big VAT amounts being charged by UPS on delivery of the smartpen. Please make sure you check these comments here before deciding to purchase the Equil Smartpen.

Looxcie LX2 Wearable Video Cam for iPhone and Android - In Action
Wearing an action camera is no longer a big deal … when doing sports? But did you try mounting your favorite GoPro while taking a walk in the park or going to work? Whatever your reasons might be to do so, it still looks weird! So, if you need to record footage of you’re doing and still have your hands free for other activities, the Looxcie LX2 wearable video camera has you covered! And all this without making you look weird or stupid!

The Looxcie LX2 is lightweight (less than 1oz – that’s less than 22 grams!) and can be worn just as a Bluetooth headphone piece, can be clipped to caps, bike helmets, mounted on car windshields or on a tripod. The camera allows up to 5 hours of video recording, allows instant clip creation and sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube or i-Cloud, is powered by rechargeable battery with a life time of up to 4 hours and is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.

Given the small format size of the Looxcie LX2 the only control available on the camera is the power button. All other operations like viewing, controlling the video capture, sharing videos and other setting can be done via the free iOs and Android apps that come with the camera.

Don’t expect miracles when it comes to footage quality. The Looxcie LX2 records in 480p (854×480 pixels) and allows live streaming in 320p (480×320 pixels) – which makes it OK for amateur video recordings.

Connected Data 1TB Transporter Social Storage Drive Closed, HDD View

The Transporter Social Storage Drive hits the sweet spot and offers a complete storage solution which features the security of traditional offline data storage with the convenience and full access of modern data cloud solutions.

Basically, what we have here is a online off-cloud storage design which allows you to securely access your files from anywhere in the world and via any device. The Transporter stores your files locally, and syncs in real-time with other Transporters (if necessary) and authorized devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc … The access to the storage is completely private and the data transfer is encrypted, so you can look at it as your own Dropbox system where you can store, share and sync data between multiple users and devices.

The storage capacity of the Transporter is limited only by your choice – while the initial purchase will give you 1TB of storage, you can easily swap the internal 2.5″ HDD with a higher capacity drive.

I’d like to hear you in the comments about what storage and sharing data solution do you prefer: would you go for a 100% cloud solution as DropBox, an online off-cloud solution as the Transporter or you’d stick to a completely offline storage solution (and if this is the case, how do you share large quantities of data with co-workers, friends and family)?
