Cyber Clean Review (Funny and Useful)

image1

 

Hello here everyone, Im going to keep these written blogs short for a bit as the YouTube channel dose all of the heavy lifting for the reviews.

So we have another very cool product to review finally, this is we found with the amazing people from Cyber Clean UK at Gadget Show Live this year.

To start it looks very very weird and you wouldn’t expect it to be very useful, never mind it being a cleaning product for gadgets, BUT this product is both fun and useful.

“Never thought I would say a cleaning product was fun lol”

The basics of this product are simple, its a kind of sticky goo that you can use to clean keyboards and many other products that can gather dirt and dust, but even though its sticky it wont leave any of its self behind like other similar products might.

Also while removing dirt and dust, it can also clean away germs (up to 99.9 % to be more exact)

So as I said before I will keep this simple, its an amazing product that I do recommend using, but I recommend the larger tub version and not the zip bag version, as you will see in the video the zip bag is a pain to remove the product from.


Check out the video below for more detailed information and a demo using my laptop.

noname

If you read my post a few days ago I imagine you already know, but here we go any way lol.

TechCast is off to Gadget Show Live Professional again this year, all the press passes are sorted for a third year running and we will be looking for allot more really cool gadgets to get our hands on, hopefully even bring home a few for review on video and the show.

I will also be looking for a new new camera while I am there, so the product videos and photos will be in even better quality than before lol.

Only decision I have to make at the moment is do I make a VLOG of the day and upload it to the YouTube for you all to see, just in case any of you cant make it this year and you want to see what you missed.

What you all think should I do a vlog of the day and maybe upload it as soon as I get home, answer in the comments below.

But until then, keep listening into the show every sunday 5-6pm at www.newportcityradio.org and keep an eye on the YouTube www.youtube.com/techcastncr , as there will be  couple of new products popping up on there soon before Gadget Show Live.

CozyBot Review

It has been a while since my last review, but after Gadget show live professional this year I have made allot of very cool contacts.

Yes its official TechCast is now getting bigger 🙂

But lets get to the point, this is a very cool little device and it looks like a very cool android guy.

It is a very basic device and comes in just two parts, but what it lacks in complexity it makes up for with usability.

I go into full detail in the video but the conclusion is it only costs £5 and is a very great device.

Please check out the video for more details.

Gadget Show Live Professional 2012

Plantronics GameCom X95 wireless Xbox 360 gaming headset review

Whilst at gadget show live the other week, I spoke to a company called Plantronics which all might know does put some pretty amazing audio equipment.

Whilst there they gave me the Plantronics GameCom X95 wireless gaming Xbox 360 headset, this is a high-quality advanced wireless gaming headset and features 40 mm speakers and a high-quality microphone.

I’ve been testing this headset now from about two weeks, during the testing I realised a few things that I like and dislike about this headset.

Some of the advantages of this headset are:

  • The headset uses a small transmitter rather than the Xbox 360’s built-in wireless audio system, which means you get full stereo sound rather than the Xbox 360’s built-in mono, this means the overall sound whilst using the headset is perfect.
  • The build quality of this headset is pretty strong and would probably withstand beating from any enthusiastic gamer.

Similar disadvantage of this headset are:

  • The headset is not completely wireless and the microphone still relies on the Xbox 360 is wireless controls headset input on the bottom of the control, this means you still have one cable hanging around, which could annoy a lot of people that feel wireless over wired is the better option.
  • Also during gameplay online a few people commented that they couldn’t clearly hear what I was saying, which meant I had to turn the microphone volume up to the maximum and keep it there during gameplay, this could be down to the way the microphone is connected to the control using the old connection style for could be down to people with game lag.

Overall this headset is a pretty good build quality and although the microphone has a few issues, I would still recommend that any online game are looking for a decent quality headset should definitely buy this for their Xbox 360.

Although if you are frustrated with wires and prefer to use a wireless headset, they also do sell wireless versions Plantronics website, so I really suggest looking there first before you make the final decision to buy this headset.

The full review of this headset will be available on the you Tube channel, displayed below this post.

Quick News About Mojo Future Tech

I have just got off the phone to my new contact at a company called Mojo Future Tech, these guys make a great product called the Mojo wrist band, which uses holographic technology to improve things like our bodies natural performance, for example balance.

Now I know what you are all thinking a small silicone band that can improve my sporting and everyday performance sounds like a load of voodoo rubbish, but I actually got the chance to use one of these at Gadget Show Live and they actually work really well, although I am still not 100% sure how they work, apart from they help your body perform allot better using the holograms embedded in the band.

But I will be reviving one some time next week hopefully and I will be performing a review and hopefully a few tests on sports people I know, so keep an eye on this page for more.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking review.

The other day I received a new product to review, the new product new product is Dragon NaturallySpeaking from Nuance, I met these guys are Gadget show live and requested the speech recognition software for review.

After receiving e-mails from one of their representatives, they agreed to send me Dragon NaturallySpeaking home edition, which I’m using now to write this review.

So far Dragon NaturallySpeaking is amazing, even through my laptops built-in microphone which I’m using now to write this review, although they do supply a basic headset in the box and they do feature products with wireless headset.

Although you don’t really need to use the headset supplied, you can in fact use your own headset even if it is wireless, wired or in some cases built-in.

Some advantages of using Dragon NaturallySpeaking are:

  • you can still use the computer even if you are blind or losing your sight
  • you can use the software to dictate e-mails, Word documents or any other documents you may need to dictate
  • also with the added games plug-in, you can also use it to control games with your voice, but you must download the plug-in first as it does not come with the software

Some of the disadvantages Dragon NaturallySpeaking are:

  • if you’re using the built-in microphone, the software tends to be less accurate, but this can quickly be fixed using the software training mode, Vocabulary Editor and allowing the software to run regular tests on your environment using the built-in microphone

So overall the software is pretty amazing, normally with speech recognition software is not that accurate and not that easy to use, Dragon NaturallySpeaking performs most speech recognition functions straight out of the box with only basic training.

But once it is fully trained it will understand everything you say perfectly, so I highly recommend anybody looking to speech recognition software buy this software.

Also I wrote this whole document using Dragon NaturallySpeaking, I will attach a screenshot and a video of me using the software at the bottom of this blog, this hopefully will demonstrate everything you need to see to help you buy this software.

I will also be performing a second review soon of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, once I get all the plug-in software installed, so keep an eye on this blog for more information.
