GAEMS G155 Sentry Personal Gaming Environment
Many people know about them, but even more have no idea they exist! If you never heard about gaming environments before, let me put it simple for you: a gaming environment is a complete setup that allows you to play games at home or on the go, independently of any other accessories including external power sources, TV screens, cables, etc …

A while back we wrote about the Gaems Vanguard Halo edition gaming environment and, since then, I received a couple of emails asking about cheaper similar systems. The Gaems G155 Sentry is Vanguard’s younger (and cheaper) brother! The Sentry gaming environment allows you to transform your gaming console into a portable system and enjoy game playing everywhere (think about those mandatory family camping trips you have to join during summer vacations!!!).

The Sentry G155 sports a 15in HD LED display with a 720p resolution (1366x768px resolution), audio output through incorporated stereo speakers or two 3.5mm headphone jacks, is compatible with Xbox 360, 360S and the Slim Version of the PS3 and fits the Carry-On standards for national and international flights.

Sony DEV-50V-B Or How To Record What You See With Binoculars
If you ever wondered how to record all the amazing things and situations you see with your binoculars here’s the answer: Digital Recording Binoculars.
While you can also use a cheaper solution like a smartphone kit such as Snapzoom which will connect your iPhone (or any other smartphone) to a pair of binoculars and allow you to use your phone’s camera to record whatever it’s on the other end, digital recording binoculars are a more adequate solution for the traveling, storage and high definition distance recording.

The Sony DEV-50V/B Digital Recording Binoculars are a top of the class distance HD recording gadget featuring 12x optical zoom and up to x25 digital magnification, HD OLED finder, Optical SteadyShot stabilization, simultaneous zoom and autofocus, distance photo shooting as well as HD and 3D digital recording capabilities.

YotaPhone - The Dual Screen Android Russian Smartphone At It's Second Generation
Remember the YotaPhone? The dual screen Russian smartphone developed by the guys over at Yota Devices?
The second generation of this cool smartphone was just announced. We’re still speaking about a dual screen layout including a 5″ front HD LCD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and a back 4.7″ EPD (Electronic Paper Display) or E-Ink screen sporting a 960×540-pixel resolution. The E-Ink screen was updated with full touch functionality and most smartphone functions can be used without having to turn on the main display. The new model of YotaPhone features improved specs over the first model – an OLED 442 PPI front display with 1080p resolution for a full smartphone experience, quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm processor and 2GB RAM will allow increased performance with most games and apps out there, 32GB of on-board storage, 8MP back camera, all connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, wireless charging and a 2,500mAh battery to power the system.

While 2,500 mAh doesn’t seem much power for today’s smartphones, the YotaPhone comes with an power-saving mode that completely turns off the AMOLED screen and keeps the back EDP screen going, easily giving you a few extra hours of usage out of an almost finished battery. YotaDevices did not release exact info about battery life, so we’re looking forward to these stats. They can be a total game changer!

The YotaSmartphone will be available towards the end of 2014 and will have a price tag of around $499 US.
