5 Cool Gadgets To Cure Your Lockdown Boredom…

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

All right we're back and today we've got a combination video many gadgets to go through one two three four five five cool gadgets hopefully they're cool well I mean we're gonna find out that's kind of the point of the show so let's kick it off with the headline goldish gold

Looking air pods alternatives now if you guys have been following the channel I have featured so many different air pods alternatives including other devices from this company happy plugs they're taking a very fashion a fashion ish

Approach to the idea of an air Potts alternative and this is well that's some next-level stuff they they look like real gold they are not real gold but they look like real gold so that you can well you could be flashing in front of

Your pals whatever it is you have to do I'm not gonna judge you but this is a limited edition for them if you head over to their website they have many different colors available but weirdly a lot of them are on pre-order they have

The air one air one plus air one go which is a smaller version of it and then they've got a new in-ear style which is I guess their pro model pro version you know you won't be able to pick up this one because it is limited

Edition if you look on the back here limited to 250 pieces I don't know maybe you could spam them and try to get them to make it again but this evaluation will apply to the variety of products they have if you can find a color that

You like and I think that's really their claim to fame at the moment is a tremendous number of colors to choose from pink and and marble and white and pink gold black they say high quality audio silicone sleeves 14 hours of

Battery supports iOS and Android sweat resistant bluetooth 5o dual microphones and touch commands now I got to be honest with you guys in the past I've had a hard time finding an air pods alternative that I like that is in the

Exact same design style as air pods I mean I did a video going over all the different alternatives you should definitely go check it out there's a product from the guys in that video as well as many

Others and so far the best alternatives I found don't try to mimic air pods in their shape and style but instead just go for something different go for an in-ear style and something like that but but it's understandable that people want

Something slim and trim and slender like this little gold one actually this finish looks really nice it's gonna attract a tremendous number of fingerprints that's for certain but this it looks like a gold-plated earbud in

Line with that viral video where that jeweler who I mentioned in the past did an actual gold plated version of these but these these look pretty good actually so those are the earbuds this is the case and this is super

Lightweight plastic by the way look at the fingerprints already and not that I'm surprised it's a mirror finish but my goodness that's gonna look good for about five minutes and then never again afterwards it actually wants you to

Charge the earbuds before using them for 15 minutes it's a budget product you kind of come to expect it every so often but I'm um I gotta be honest I'm a little sick of anything that's micro USB at this point in 2020 but anyway that's

What's in the pack these little ear tips can go on the outside I suppose for a fit improvement for some users there's also a sticker inside little user manual this marketplace has absolutely blown up these companies that have popped up

Seemingly overnight happy plugs one of them at least in the case of happy plugs it looks like they've got a robust website where you can actually buy these things although the fact that they're all on pre-order is a bit bothering let

Me try what if I select a different style what if I go to wireless – what is that okay I can add that to cart so maybe they're just it's a lot of demand and they're sold out or on pre-order not sold out on pre-order I don't know

That's just keep that in mind if you head to their site it's a lot of pre-order for the time being so the way these things are gonna charge up there's too little contact points on the inside magnets actually that's pretty nice gets

In there real easy magnets jump down on it ooh I also just noticed on the back the limited-edition indicator there 224 of 250 but the fingerprints are madness on this my goodness what did it say I think it said battery low battery low

Wants to charge more I guess their little paperwork wasn't lying they wanted to charge for 15 minutes so let's let this charge for a moment we'll come back to that give it a little test in the meantime how about we jump into

Product number two so this thing is called hybrid drive which is actually a bit confusing because I did a quick google on the word hybrid drive is something people have been using for a long period of time as a generic term I

Had to actually look for the website on the back it is get hybrid drive calm which then brings you to a Kickstarter page a Kickstarter looking page IndieGoGo pre-order for 50% off this is kind of cool a lot of people look for

Expansion on their laptop and this one takes it a step further it's not just doc instead it also gives you an option to expand your storage through a fast m2 SSD that you can put inside of this enclosure it's gonna connect via USB

Type-c and then give you an SD card slot a micro SD card slot 2 USB a ports and a full size HDMI out to connect to an external monitor storage up to 2 terabytes that's just the max size that you're probably gonna find currently for

An m2 up to 450 megabytes per second read and write speed and 4k up to 60 Hertz over the HDMI connector for an early unit it feels pretty snug pretty sturdy what why does that is that supposed to come off so this is like

This is just a cap oh never mind so this is a cap and a cable you can connect to any device you like with this type C cable which pops out of the unit you take your device you plug into the type C port and then you open up all of the

Potential expansion and the internal m2 storage this is not an enclosure it looks like it's got storage it does it's got a kingston 2 terabyte in it remove this cap and then plug it directly into a laptop or i guess some

Other I mean here's an iPad I wonder what would happen here why couldn't you do this to more importantly if you have one of these guys a laptop with a type C port on it then you're gonna be able to do this like that and have that sit on

The side without the need for a cable it makes me a little worried sitting there on the singel type-c connector that if it gets banged it's a desk only I don't think you're gonna want to put it on your lap if it's on a desk you're gonna

Feel okay about it cuz it's a Kickstarter they go alright we connect all the things we slap the cap on their Android yeah you connect it to a smart phone to show an iPad it's cool I kind of wish that the construction was a

Little bit more robust it comes in four different configurations my goodness they raised seven hundred thousand Canadian dollars three hundred and sixteen bucks with two terabytes of storage okay alright starting price 128

Storage is 79 oh let's check in on those earbuds now power on air one pairing connected connect it to what I didn't even did I hey it's a it's a mediocre typist it's also is this thing this thing is already scratching up and

Getting scratched the plastic I don't it's not the worst headset ever you want to listen to a podcast or you're not very discerning you're gonna get the job done but there are better options out there for that price look man you just

Need some golden buds and I'm not I'm not judging you hopefully they can upgrade the next version alright next up we have this odd package that arrived unusual looking contraption in there a little bit of paperwork like this is a

Steel certificate of authenticity geometrically correct design is supplemented with mathematically perfect internal mechanics serial number 85 not many of these out there in the world it is a specialty blade futuristic

Cyberpunk style of blade for big dreamers with 40 features compact personal ninja tool tech wear metropolis traveler outfit this thing's expensive one hundred and fifty dollar knife but it does look

Quite cool do I swing it to what do I do here that guy just that guy in the video just Chuck's it down a bit no no way is he doing a trick this way like that it does look cool and what's interesting is the blade is sharp all

The way around sharpened up top and bottom then to put it away what do we do push this okay to put it away you just push up that little piece there it's definitely cool looking everything's been coming to the

House recently so my garage is like some sort of shipping and receiving zone so I could definitely make use of this in there so these guys just pulling it out how I was somehow they have unbox therapy on here and I don't I haven't

Even looked at this thing yet that was wishful thinking I suppose when they sent it to me that it would show up on the show while it showed up on the show mmm a cyber truck does not seem ridiculous this dude he's the rebellion

Check a mouth Oh a bottle opener bottle opener so I've crafted a pocket knife it's kind of cool couple different functions you get the idea he's very happy with it they're very happy with it all the way from the

Ukraine inner ticks cyberpunk pocket EXO Blade you guys know recently I've been covering these types of products on a channel particularly because all that new Microsoft Surface stuff came out including the surface go and the

Keyboard that comes with that or as an accessory to and I was complaining about the Apple alternative on they're inexpensive iPad of course they upgraded the keyboard for the iPad pro the magic keyboard is their

New one I don't have it yet it should be here very soon so this is kind of a cool in-between it's the combo touch from Logitech for that seventh generation affordable iPad that's the iPad that's just over three hundred bucks

You had this case and you essentially get what Apple really should have made in the first place which is a tactile feedback keyboard case for the cheaper iPad this is a hundred and fifty bucks so the whole thing is not all that

Inexpensive at that point but it's still a lot cheaper than an iPad pro set up this guy what is he doing he's browsing and readings watching movies because it's also a stand doing some drawing backlit keyboard as well so there is the

Keyboard and it has a nice oh it's a nice fabric feel to it and those have an actual that's an actual click ladies and gentlemen on the combo touch and this is the other portion that will actually go around the iPad and protect it that's

The other thing it's a lot more protective than what Apple is selling so just to recap you might not realize this when you go to purchase it this is actually the keyboard case that Apple sells for the inexpensive iPad and you

Can tell right away these keys with this nylon synthetic covering this is not a satisfying experience as a case it's just covering the front of the iPad I'll show you what I'm talking about here real quick close like this and it has a

Strange part of the way bulge and then the back of the iPad is completely exposed and then also when you go to crack it open it's a multi-step process there was an opening for Logitech to make something like this now as a quick

Comparison up until this product came you had products like like the Microsoft Surface go which had keyboards like this and this is more comparable to what Logitech has offered up it's well it's almost identical to be honest connects

Up here tactile buttons trackpad below and this one has Alcantara this is the more expensive cover oh you know what I may give I may give this one to the Logitech it's a it's actually hard to say this one is spread

Out a little bit more you can see the special Keys up along top are a bit larger than what Microsoft gives you on the surface go we slam it into here like this and then we pop it onto there I think we just made the Apple iPad go

This is now this is the competition for the Microsoft Surface go in reality because you have the inexpensive iPad you're around five hundred bucks total you have the trackpad you have the keyboard and you even have the kickstand

Plus full coverage on the protection now you have this loop on the top for the pen I have to say that's a fairly polished package now the angles look at the angle availability as well you can go basically flat or sort of a ninety

Degree a laptop style of angle as well now the other benefit here you can just pop the keyboard off and now you have a case kickstand oh I think Logitech actually nailed it here I think Logitech has actually out

Thought Apple on this one I haven't tried the magic keyboard to be clear but compared to the other ones that I've tried this is the most robust accessory or version of a laptop replacement ipad setup that I've had here on the show you

Have controls for the backlight on the keyboard itself multimedia keys and volume controls at your disposal so yeah it's a keyboard it's connected there's full trackpad support on the latest software version of course at any point

You can reach up and touch the display as well it's sturdier than I expected just that little kickstand when you kind of tap or have to touch the display your multimedia keys work as expected brightness works as expected the quick

Brown this is a billion times better than the keyboard case you can get for this iPad from Apple so definitely look in this direction it's a bit pricey at 150 but that's what you come to expect with iPad accessories

Look at that nice little package does make it heavier does make it fatter put your around 500 bucks for the package and I really liked the fact that they didn't make it a whole solid thing so if you don't need

The keyboard you just leave that part and now you have a case for your iPad and a kickstand you can prop it up for video conferencing video watching this one is called powered and it's a multi device wireless charger man we've seen

So many of these types of things emerge recently this is a 25 watt charge dock they say it can be up to 2 times faster than what I guess other wireless chargers over heat protection and fast charging for Apple and Samsung phones

And I presume others as well they probably just targeted those ones because they're popular Qi certified no scratch surface you can see the way they have it set up here they have some air pods a phone and an Apple watch

Presumably you could do two phones we'll test it out we'll see if that's possible oh nice little unboxing experience so far look at this the shape of that box so in here we have a power brick that's a hefty power brick right there but it

Would have to be to deliver the 25 watts this is capable of this one lets you prop up your phone in this kind of position which is nice for the bedside table to just have it standing upright and then it lets you charge a secondary

Device on the flat section kind of rubberized feel to it soft touch though so you're not gonna feel nervous about your device sitting on there you pop your phone on this one has a case on it but a very thin case obviously and boom

You're charging up no problem now if you take some air pods for example you drop them down on this section and those are charging now in the case of the oneplus there's no warp charge here it's just your typical slightly upgraded wireless

Charging and then lastly if you take the Apple watch and you pop it on the far side over here there we go we got the indicator on that one as well I don't know about having to watch all the way up here it's a bit strange this is also

Using a third-party watch band which is a bit heavier so it kind of wants to droop a little bit but it's definitely convenient to have the singular charger whether it's on the bedside table in the living room wherever you keep it they

Can how was your device's when they're not in use and keep them charged now if we remove the air pods and instead replace it with another phone let's see what happens there so that one's charging up

That's the s20 ultra this one is still charging as well and you have the watch which is still getting power also so that's two phones and a watch so I think this is gonna be a popular choice for people looking for an all-in-one charger

Maybe in the kitchen on the bedside table like I said probably the main drawback is gonna be price it's a hundred and twenty nine bucks it comes in white and black and it'll send up to ten watts of wireless power which is

Supported by a number of different devices so that is faster than a lot of wireless chargers that are out there and of course you have the Logitech brand name which maybe will make you a bit comfier than buying some charger from a

Brand that's new to the space or that you haven't heard of before few different products in this video we have the multiple wireless charger we have the combo touch keyboard case also from Logitech we had the golden fingerprint

Magnet the sorta unusual cyberpunk unboxing knife and the hyper drive SSD slash port expander for your laptop or mobile device let me know down in the comments which of these gadgets you would go for if you

Could pick one and also check the description for links to all the stuff that was talked about in this video you
