bridging device (the Bridge) to play middleman between your Internet router and Sonos.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div>

separate remote to control your Sonos device. But the remote has been gradually phased out as Sonos decided to rely instead of iOS and Android apps to do the same job.</p> <p>As music seems to be the new Internet battleground, with Apple&#39;s recent purchase of Beats and Google looking to offer audio-only, ad-free subscriptions to YouTube, it makes sense for audio hi-fi companies to work harder at connectivity.</p> <p>Sonos is also working on improving its streaming quality, looking to transmit high-def audio wirelessly, which could prove a challenge seeing how much data would need to be streamed. With Wi-Fi, it would be possible, but the question lies in whether Sonos is up to the challenge of transmitting high-def music over Bluetooth. The latter would probably also depend on the latest Bluetooth standard and how well Sonos can implement it in its speakers.</p> <p>Though Sonos&#39; reputation is built on its wireless speakers, you wonder if Sonos has plans to diversify seeing how much competition there is in the market for wireless speakers.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/hi-fi-streaming">We have the goss on hi-fi streaming</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/02/sonos-kills-the-bridge-and-goes-almost-totally-wireless/?ncid=rss&amp;utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Techcrunch+%28TechCrunch%29" target="_blank">Techcrunch</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/gKAFTtK4G6E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/sonos/sonos-untethers-itself-dropping-its-bridge-device/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/sonos/sonos-untethers-itself-dropping-its-bridge-device/news#comments Geek accessories Hi-Fi & Streaming Hi-Res Audio Sonos Wed, 03 Sep 2014 08:50:45 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1446417 at http://www.stuff.tv Look makes sure you never lose your glasses http://www.stuff.tv/sg/look-makes-sure-you-never-lose-your-glasses/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Simple Bluetooth tracker keeps glasses and other objects within easy reach </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Look makes sure you never lose your glasses" alt="Look makes sure you never lose your glasses" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/look_01.jpg?1409492184" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Anyone who&#39;s ever worn glasses will remember the early morning fumbling for your eyewear.

How it dims the light is through a series of on/off sequences &ndash; that is, click on/off a set number of times in quick succession to set it at your desired brightness. How does the bulb do it? The Bloom contains a small microprocessor that translates the on/off sequences into measures of variable brightness in the bulb. Hence, no additional hardware or apps required for energy-efficient smart light!</p> <p>The bulb itself is also rather fascinating in shape, styling itself like a completed geometric puzzle piece. The <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nanoleaf/nanoleaf-bloom-the-first-bulb-that-dims-without-a?ref=category" target="_blank">Kickstarter</a> has taken off very quickly &ndash; the Bloom has raised more than USD$130,000, more than quadruple its original goal and still has nearly a month to go. Each bulb is going for USD$40 at a basic price threshold on the Kickstarter, which means it won&#39;t be cheap to outfit an entire house.</p> <p>That said, the endeavour and price of retrofitting your house with dimmer switches or any of the alternative smart bulbs will cost at least the same amount of money, so it&#39;s your decision, oh fair consumer.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>READ MORE</strong>: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/home">Even cooler stuff to equip your house </a></p> <p dir="ltr">[Source: <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2014/08/19/nanoleaf-bloom/" target="_blank">Techcrunch</a>]<br />&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/9SnKrj7vK7M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/nanoleaf-bloom-fresh-take-smart-lightbulb/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/nanoleaf-bloom-fresh-take-smart-lightbulb/news#comments Geek accessories Home Fri, 22 Aug 2014 02:22:23 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1445576 at http://www.stuff.tv These gorgeous chopsticks are empowering Japan's disabled http://www.stuff.tv/sg/these-gorgeous-chopsticks-are-empowering-japans-disabled/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Also good for fumbling chopstick-using wannabes and chronically clumsy </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="These gorgeous chopsticks are empowering Japan&#039;s disabled" alt="These gorgeous chopsticks are empowering Japan&#039;s disabled" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/chop%2001.jpg?1407375975" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Japanese artisanal woodworker Katsuyuki Miyabo is making custom chopsticks that makes its wielding a feasible task for all.</p> <p>These chopsticks are primarily aimed towards the physically disabled or users with hand injuries. However, they simplify the use of chopsticks so those who wish for something like Baby&rsquo;s First Chopsticks or training chopsticks may also find them very useful.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Only in Japan, though </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>To that end, Miyabo generally holds sessions with each customer to properly calibrate his works, since each pair will be unique to each client. Usually, prospective clients choose from a selection of base designs and specific measurements and adjustments are made to tailor the design for that client.</p> <p>For Miyabo, the meetings are helpful for a number of reasons. With all that individual attention, Miyabo catalogues a greater number of base designs that accommodate for more types of disabilities that people face on a daily basis. Miyabo also finds it personally satisfying as the new challenges and the help he gives to a mostly overlooked minority motivates him in his work.</p> <p>It would seem that acquiring these chopsticks will require a trip to Japan. The meetings must happen in person and the artist doesn&rsquo;t even list prices so expect a custom chopstick bill to run high. Though for his clients and considering that they would re-enable autonomous eating for them, the price tag for autonomy, and maybe even some sense of pride, is never too high.</p> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/jawbone/7-smart-accessories-make-geeks-look-cool/feature">If you&#39;d rather look cool, check these out instead.</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.psfk.com/2014/08/japanese-craftsman-chopsticks-motor-disabilities.html" target="_blank">PSFK</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="These gorgeous chopsticks are empowering Japan&#039;s disabled" alt="These gorgeous chopsticks are empowering Japan&#039;s disabled" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/chop%2002.jpg?1407375975" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/these-gorgeous-chopsticks-are-empowering-japans-disabled/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/these-gorgeous-chopsticks-are-empowering-japans-disabled/news#comments Geek accessories Wed, 06 Aug 2014 08:27:14 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1444169 at http://www.stuff.tv Look out Moto 360, the OnePlus OneWatch is just around the corner http://www.stuff.tv/sg/oneplus/watch-out-moto-360-oneplus-onewatch-just-around-corner/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The world of circular smartwatches appears to be growing, and we&#039;re not complaining one bit </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="705" height="529" title="Ooooh, leather" alt="Watch out Moto 360, the OnePlus OneWatch is just around the corner" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/oneplus-onewatch-1.jpg?1406944708" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>We&#39;ve been drooling over Motorola&#39;s circular <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/meet-android-wear-googles-new-android-platform-wearable-devices/news" target="_blank">Moto 360 </a>smartwatch since we first caught a glimpse of it earlier this year.

Many years later, they are unveiling The Smart Box.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Give us our fresh grilled cheese </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr" id="docs-internal-guid-1f6b96d4-8048-f61a-2787-655b603f9dbc">At the time, no such thing existed that met the delicate and myriad conditions that the mighty grilled cheese sandwich demands. Rest assured, it is fussier than the pedestrian pizza. So the restaurant commissioned a team who has worked with NASA to help them create a &lsquo;transport box&rsquo; themselves.</p> <p dir="ltr">Their first prototype was basically a cardboard box with holes and a hair dryer was shoved into one of them. Four iterations later, with greater sophistication, they made the Smart Box pictured above. It uses a hot plate with a shield so it doesn&rsquo;t burn its contents. A fan ensures air circulates properly through each sandwich. Then sensors detect the internal temperature and humidity while a microcontroller allows you to adjust them.</p> <p dir="ltr">So the grilled cheese gods were appeased. We commoners will ask, of course, if the Box may be used elsewhere for other problematic delivery foods. Kaplan&rsquo;s team remains steadfast, insisting their clientele and the Almighty Grilled Cheese are foremost in their minds but the possibility of selling the tech to other restaurants is always there.</p> <p dir="ltr">[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.fastcompany.com/3033595/at-last-a-scientific-solution-for-delivering-hot-grilled-cheese-sandwiches">Fastcompany</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="How science is conquering the problem of soggy delivery food" alt="How science is conquering the problem of soggy delivery food" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/melt%2002.jpg?1406612589" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/how-science-conquering-problem-soggy-delivery-food/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/how-science-conquering-problem-soggy-delivery-food/news#comments Geek accessories Tue, 29 Jul 2014 04:08:12 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1443516 at http://www.stuff.tv Glowing alien grenade or intelligent sleep tracker?

Come on, you&rsquo;ve thought that far, haven&rsquo;t you?</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Your own merchandise </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If you don&rsquo;t, good thing you&rsquo;ve got time. Seattle&rsquo;s only scouting and looking for recruits but you gotta give &lsquo;em your name or names if you&rsquo;ve got a partner or a group already. No John Hancock just yet. But when that siren comes, you best be prepared.</p> <p>Oh yeah, and when that siren comes, they&rsquo;ll need a face shot of you too. Can&rsquo;t have your action figure with the wrong head, right? Or hairstyle? You Kick Ass believes in options and you have 30 hairstyles to choose from.</p> <p>Of course, getting superpowers ain&rsquo;t an easy feat. You&rsquo;ll have to leave that to them. But you&rsquo;ll know when your figure comes. They&rsquo;ll tell you what you gotta do to get there.</p> <p>Oh, and don&rsquo;t forget there&rsquo;s a cover. It&#39;ll cost you to ship your figure and to make it in the guild. And admin costs too, we&rsquo;d reckon. Something like USD60 dollars a person. You&rsquo;ll get some cuts if you register as a team. And pay extra for shipping if you live outside the US.</p> <p>Right, now that you&rsquo;re looking pretty into this, it&rsquo;s time for your first assignment. Sorry, kid, I lied, looks like Seattle HQ&rsquo;s closing the hunt by the end of the day, so you&rsquo;re gonna have to hurry with that application.</p> <p>Good luck.</p> <p>P.S.
