I was just having a look at http://store.apple.com/sg/browse/holiday and came across some absolutely cool products I thought I’d share!
First on the list is the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone. What mad me click on it was the price tag, which upon understanding that it records in stereo and offers the choice of different pickup patterns sounds reasonable.
Second is the iRig Mic which isn’t that novel all in itself but its application with an iPhone definitely broadens the horizon.
Third is the AmpliTube iRig. Software audio effects are nothing new, but again having them on a mobile device sure changes perspectives. Check out the picture with the iPad.
Lastly, WiFi body scale by Withings. It’s not so much the WiFi or the network connectivity that surprises me. Probably more so seeing this product listed on a consumer website. People are definitely paying more and more attention to health data. As Peter Drucker said, if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Take note that according to a review all information is transmitted in cleartext, so network admins might want to siphon the relevant data into your own formats.
Have a blessed holiday season!
