Cool Tech Under $100 - September

what's up guys is that back again from Texas and welcome to cool tech under a hundred bucks for the month of September you guys are new to the series and somehow miss my previous episodes I'll go to leave a playlist linked down below so you guys can catch up after the video now without wasting any more time let's begin by the way all the products mentioned in this video will be listed down below in the order that they appear so it's easier for you guys to find them so with that said let's start off by the most requested item from my desk set up the LEDs so these are from friends of you and what sets these LEDs apart from most of the other ones is that you can control them wirelessly through your smartphone or tablet there's a dedicated app that gives you full control on selecting the perfect color for your setup you can even save them into something called a scene which gives you quick access to it you can also adjust the intensity of the color which I find awesome but the one thing I absolutely love about this app is that I don't need to log in to it to access my scenes I just pull down the notifications tab from wherever I am and select the pre-configured settings from there also typing the same color a second time will disable the lights it states that the LED strip is 6 feet long but it managed to fit the entire length of my desk which is 72 inches and I still managed to have some extra left over that wrapped around the other side of the desk so it's more like 6 and a half feet if you ask me you can also cut the strip's anywhere you like to make it shorter so the starter pack is less than 100 bucks but unfortunately you will need to buy the bridge which is sold separately if you want to be able to control the lights using your smart phone but I'll go to leave a link to both of them down below for you guys next up we have a 14 port USB aluminum hub from anchor it features 13 USB 3.0 ports and a single smart charging port that delivers up to 2.1 amps for charging your devices on one side we have the USB pass-through port with the DCN and on the other side as the power button this is great for anyone that is a crap-ton of accessories or devices that need USB 3.0 I on the other hand I found a slightly different use for it this is my little docking station for my smart phones that I have one micro USB cable running from each phone to a power brick which is then connected an outlet so I have a bunch of cables and power bricks below so I thought of a great idea I can just hook this up on the roof of the table get some short micro USB cables and connect it all to the USB hub and only have one wire go directly into the power now I know that USB 3.0 only outputs 0.9 amps which is half the speeds of regular USB charging ports but I'll leave these to charge overnight anyway so I'm never in a hurry by the way I will leave a link down below to where I got these awesome carbon fiber skins from if anyone is interested next up we have a power bank from zero lemon but this is no regular power bank this is actually solar powered twenty thousand milliamp portable charger that's actually rain resistant as well you can charge the power bank using direct sunlight or by the micro USB port on the side on the other side is the power button and when pressed will indicate how much juice is left and if you hold it down they will activate the built-in flashlight it also features two USB ports that you can use to charge two devices at the same time now the solar charging feature is only one-fifth of the speed of regular charging ports but it's still a really nice feature if you're out camping for days or weeks at a time this next product is one of my favorite products featured in this video this is the SanDisk I expand mobile flash drive for iPhones and iPads Apple keeps shafting us every year by releasing sixteen gigabyte models and not giving us the 32 gigabyte versions which means that we have to pay extra to make the jump to 64 gigabytes this forces a lot of us to stick with the 16 gigabyte model and we all know that's just not enough space for all our music photos and videos well this is where the 64 gigabyte I expand comes in it's basically like a USB flash drive but for iPhones you can sync all your photos from your phone to the flash drive and delete them right after to save you space or you can store your music and movies all on this flash drive and only transfer them to your phone when you want to listen or watch them or better yet if you don't have enough space on your phone you can watch it straight from the flash drive itself I'm definitely sticking with the 16 gigabyte model next year as well since I now have expandable storage this next product is a simple one this is a tablet stand by I prop but it's a unique tablet stand which is why I included it in my cool tech video the stand itself is made out of non-slip silicon which holds all tablets under 18 millimeters of thickness and behind that is a mesh type material with microbeads that is catchable and machine washable it's basically a beanbag chair for your tablet because of the micro bead base you are guaranteed to find the perfect viewing angle regardless of your position whether you are lying in a bed sitting on the sofa or even a chair absolutely a brilliant invention and I recommend this to anyone who watches movies or videos on their tablets a lot these next three products are all from nyko and work with the PlayStation 4 first up is the charging dock that offers a much more convenient way of charging the controllers it connects to the front two USB ports and comes with two dongles that you can connect up to two controllers just drop the controller off near the port and it will snap in place magnetically this will also charge your controllers in rest mode which is awesome so since its hook up the front two USB ports you get those back near the end which is a lot better if you ask me since you can run the cables to the back which obviously much cleaner look at number two is the Nyko data bank if you're hardcore gamer either on the Xbox or Playstation 4 and have tons of games on your console and need more space then this has your name written all over it with the data bank you are able to expand your original storage up to 2 terabytes of space using a standard hard drive which you can either buy separately or use one that you already have the last item from Nyko is an attachable type pad that you can hook up to your controller you no longer have to use the lame directional keys to type words one letter at a time if it's right in front of the controller with ease and it doesn't mess with the ergonomics in fact it's slightly more comfortable holding the controller with this equipped because it covers the audio jack you get another one using the type pad so you can still connect your headset it's also Bluetooth compatible meaning you can connect it to virtually anything from smartphones to tablets TVs and more which is awesome by the way all these three items are also available for the Xbox one version and I'll leave links to that as well this next one is very popular which I'm sure a lot of you probably already have seen this is tile and it's basically an item finder put it on your keys your luggage your baby wallet underwear PC or anything that you don't want to lose or probably lose often if you do lose it you simply use the app and find it I have like eight of these and a bunch of my stuff that I want to keep an eye on in case they are stolen or lost and I can track them all using the tile app which makes it super convenient one of them is actually attached to my dog snowy I simply hook that up to his collar and he barely even notices it there it's super lightweight weighing only at one point three ounces and little snowy will no longer go missing I can simply use the app and pinpoint his exact location and go to his rescue now let's say you get really close to the item you're tracking or it's at your house well the map won't do you good since you still need to look for it that's where the fine option comes in handy simply tapping it once will activate a loud jingle that you can hear and find your item next up we have an all-in-one video security system called guardzilla this thing has it all I have lots of tech items here at the office and I never leave without arming this thing unlike most surveillance cameras that make you pay for a subscription to upload recorded files this one actually has a built-in SD card slot which means that it supports up to 32 gigabytes of space you can store up to five days of video files on you can check up anytime you want no matter where you are just by opening the app up and you can take quick screenshots which is pretty cool it also features two-way audio so you can hear everything that's going on as well as communicate back and forth since it has a built-in speaker other features include motion detection which alerts you by sending an email or text straight to your smartphone within seconds there's also an option for pet immunity as well but the coolest and my personal favorite feature of them all is the night vision the only downside is that it's not rechargeable so it has to be plugged in for it to work but overall the quality is really amazing compared to other security cameras I've seen and the fact that you get all of this in one compact device for around 100 bucks is what makes this a really cool tech item this next product is pretty awesome this is the noon virtual reality headset it's compatible with Android and iPhones and it's an experience to have I'll tell you that much it supports screen sizes from 4.7 to 5.5 inches virtual reality content is becoming extremely popular not only is it starting to surface on YouTube but developers are constantly making apps for it I tried on a few of your headsets before and honestly most of them are overpriced and feels super flimsy but the new headset is on a different level not only do they have an awesome app with tons of videos but the quality of the headset is solid I try to capture a little bit of what was going on inside there but it's a completely different experience once you put it on if you're looking to get into it or maybe curious about it then I strongly recommend you guys to check out the noon VR headset first you won't regret it these next two items are single Bluetooth speakers and first up we have the X power it will give you up to 20 hours of music and it's great for outdoors whether you are camping or hiking it's protected in a rubber casing which will prevent the speaker from getting damaged if you manage to drop it on one side you have the media controls and on the other side covered by a seal is the USB port to charge your devices yep that's right the speaker does double as a 7,000 milliamp hour power bank it also has a line in for non bluetooth connectivity and features a built-in mic for taking calls this next one is the anchor premium speaker that features 20 watt drivers and dual subwoofers the name says it all this is a premium built speaker that features Bluetooth 4.0 and offers up to 10 hours of music it has a beautiful glossy finish on top along with the media controls the speaker features max based technology which improves the bass performance and gives you amazing highs in deep lows here's a quick sound comparison between the X power and the anchor speakers these next set of speakers have been in my setup for a pretty long time and I have been constantly been asked about them so I decided to feature them in this video so everyone knows these are the Boehm mate speakers they sell them individually but I'll explain in a bit why I have two of them so the speakers feature Bluetooth 4.0 technology and will get you up to 18 hours of music on a full charge on the side you will find the power button earphone jack audio input and micro USB port for charging on the top are the media controls and it does come with a built-in mic so you can accept calls now then I have two of these because they feature dual link technology which means that I can pair them together for a wireless surround sound experience these speakers are amazing and I've been using them all the time to watch movies on my ultrawide monitor I basically have my very own mini theater experience there is one last set of speakers I do want to mention this is the go groove bass pulse led speaker sound system it comes in red blue or green LED options and contains 40 watts of peak power you get dynamic highs warm mid-tones and a deep a very powerful bass on the front of the subwoofer you have a knob to control the volume and the other to control the amount of bass it outputs followed by an LED switch on the bottom the speaker system not only looks amazing but produces really high quality sound which is surprising because the speaker's itself are super thin and I was shocked to hear how great the quality of the sound was if you guys are looking for really cool speakers to go along with your setup then I strongly recommend these you will definitely go lost in your game or movie with these in the fact that it contains an equaliser makes this a solid choice for parties here's a quick sound demo these last two items are gaming gear for my gamers out there first up is probably one of the most comfortable and responsive gaming mice I have ever used this is the me onyx caster optical gaming mouse now for those of you that haven't heard of me onyx they make some of the most comfortable gaming mice in the world the caster is their latest entry in their lineup of premium mice it features six programmable buttons up to sixteen point eight million LED color options and a dpi sensor of up to ten thousand the gaming great optical sensor has no positive or negative hardware acceleration it has amazing accuracy and smooth tracking and I definitely noticed that while gaming they state that it's widely considered as the best gaming sensor currently available it also comes with it's very own software with it you can program all six buttons as well as control the speed of scrolling and pointer acceleration or get into more detailed settings for sensor performance you also get the usual macro settings and LED options it's so accurate that you can actually manually input your RGB code if you're looking for a specific shade of color last but not least and my personal favorite out of all the items I featured is the HyperX cloud 2 gaming headset it's compatible with PC Xbox ps4 and practically everything else that has a 3.5 millimeter jack like smartphones tablets and other devices it features 7.1 surround sound and has a premium USB sound card which will give you really rich sound quality with crystal-clear lows mids and high tones along with an enhanced bass when I swapped my eth and 50 X's to these I immediately noticed how much louder and clearer the sound was the build quality is outstanding as well with aluminum sliders and it's pretty flexible too dear cups are made out of memory foam and are really comfortable to wear for hours at a time they're also interchangeable and come with a set of velar cushions which are also super comfortable however my ears tend to warm up quickly with those on so it's probably best to save them for a cold day additionally the cloud 2 comes with a detachable mic which is awesome because it gives you the choice whether to wear it or not I mentioned earlier that these headphones have 7.1 surround sound well you will need to connect the audio control box to enable that feature and to be able to use the mic if you do this the connection becomes USB and you will have to connect it straight to your PC or console instead of using the audio jack now because of the clothes cup design it fits around your ear and doesn't press against your ear which means that you can wear them for long periods of time without fatigue the longest I can wear my m50x is our for only two hours before my ears start to hurt but with the cloud tubes I practically wore them for over four hours until it was lunchtime but I'm definitely sure I can go on the entire day with them on without a problem honestly there's not much else I can ask for this headset has it all and it's my favorite it's now officially part of my desk setup there is one more product I want to mention but it's currently not out yet but it deserves to be in this video because it's honestly really cool this is the 3d Simo mini one of the most versatile 3d pens on the market it's basically a four in one pen it's capable of 3d printing soldering cutting and burning things with the soldering nozzle you can fix or create any electrical component and the tip can reach temperatures of up to four hundred ninety degrees the wooden tool gives you options of decorating stuff like wooden spoons your wallet shoes or even shape 3d printed models or printouts and lastly if you're a model maker the cutting tool is an awesome way to cut them plastic or foam creating whatever it is that you need the possibilities are endless with the 3d Simo mini but I'm going to leave a link down below for more details for anyone that is interested so anyway that's it for the video if you guys enjoyed it and
