OhGizmo! Review: The Prima Vaporizer

Untitled

Today I am fortunate enough to be reviewing another of the latest generation of portable vaporizers, the Vapir Prima. Many people who are content with their original vapes tend to jump to the conclusion that these newer vaporizers are just marketing gimmicks and ways for companies to make more money. Now sometimes this is true but after testing the Prima I can confidently say that the Vapir Prima is truly a beast of a unit, offering some exciting features that really can’t be found combined in any other vaporizer on the market. One thing that I like about the Prima, for example, is the easily removable vapor pathway that allows for convenient cleaning and maximum vapor freshness. On the flipside the unit does get hotter than the average vaporizer out there.

Onnit Chimp Primal Bell Will Add A Little Flavor To Your Workouts

chimp-primal-bell-kettlebells

Crossfit is gaining popularity and with it, the use of kettlebells. These have been around for a while, by the way, but now that they’re popular again, why stop at buying a simple ball-shaped one, when you can get yourself the Chimp Primal Bell from Onnit? It weighs 36lbs. (1 pood, for those of you who speak Crossfit-ese) and is made from “chip resistant iron.” That just probably means it’s made from iron, which tends to be more malleable and not chip in general, rather than some form of special iron that doesn’t chip.

It’s $86 for a kettlebell with some personality.

By Andrew Liszewski

Sharp has announced that they’ve developed a five-primary-color display that is capable of reproducing more than 99% of real surface colors that the human eye can discern. The new display features something the company calls “Multi-Primary-Color Technology” which is a combination of special image processing circuitry, as well as the addition of cyan and yellow to the standard red, green and blue pixel structure. Unfortunately there’s no photos of the new display just yet, but a prototype will be shown at the Society for Information Display (SID) symposium being held in San Antonio from May 31 to June 5, so hopefully a few shots will turn up.

Remember The Old Arcade Game Rampage? Well It’s Now A Feature Film and Here’s The Trailer

Remember Rampage from the 90’s? The one where you go around and cause as much chaos and destruction as possible? Well, it’s now being turned into a major blockbuster staring The Rock, and Warner Bros. just released the first trailer.

As you can see from the trailer, there are indeed large monsters causing chaos and destruction to the city (it follows the game so closely!).

The Rock plays a primatologist who befriends a gorilla named George, one day George becomes curious and investigates a meteor landing and after being sprayed in the face with some Hollywood magic, starts growing massive and becomes Curious George a rampaging monster.

The film looks like a lot of fun, and I can say that because they showed the entire movie in the trailer. Like, from the first act to the climax, they showed the entire thing. They showed so much, that I wouldn’t be surprised if the next trailer showed 35 minutes from the sequel.Continue Reading

My Unbiased Review of iSmart C310 1 IR Wireless Camera

There was a time when wired security cameras and CCTVs were considered to be the only surveillance devices capable of monitoring home and work spaces. All that changed when wireless models were launched. Wireless spy cams spare you the trouble of setting up a complicated network of wires all around the place, instead, the cams have Wi-Fi integration that sends automatic alerts to your phone in case of any unusual activity. My search for an affordable and durable surveillance camera led me to iSmart C310 1 IR Wireless camera from https://www.surveillance-video.com . Let me share you my experience and overview of this pretty cool product.

It is very rare to come across a surveillance camera that is well equipped with all the latest features and advanced functionalities. Enter iSmart C310, an IR wireless camera model that works well both indoors and outdoors. With 1MP 2.8mm lens and solar powered batteries, the camera model has worked great for surveillance. Moreover, with cloud backup and Wi-Fi connectivity, I was able to easily share the footage online in a matter of minutes. C310 model turned out to be pretty easy to install and required almost no special maintenance.

Top 6 Qualities To Look For In A New TV

Selecting a brand new TV to purchase is no easy task. Not only are there are many different models available on the market for you to consider, the TV is often the focal point of a living or family room and therefore needs to meet the expectations that you set for it.

However, knowing how to buy a TV often comes down to knowing which specific features and qualities you need to look for. We’ll go over six of those qualities here:

1. The Screen Size

Probably the one factor you’re thinking about the most with a TV is the screen size. After all, this is the first thing anyone notices when they first see a TV in a room. While the size of TV you want is completely up to you, if it’s going to be in the living or family room, a size of at least fifty five inches will be preferable.

Got pets and kids? Check Out These 3 Air Purifiers to Keep Your Home’s Air Clean

Top Air Purifiers

An air purifier does what your air conditioning and vacuuming can’t do – take the extra step to remove all possible particles from the air in your house. Whether your vacuum cleaner is kicking up a little bit too much dust from your carpet, or you need to get rid of as many allergens as possible for an asthma condition, these beauties can help out. If you’re looking for the top air purifiers of 2017, then we’ve got the list you need to see!

These standalone models (as opposed to units installed in your HVAC system) tend to work best when placed in a large living room or bedroom where they have access to the most air. We tend to prefer “mechanical” air purifiers, which use physical filters to “strain” the air and remove the smallest particles possible. Of course, that’s only a small part of the story, so let’s take a look at our top picks and the features that set them apart.

Honeywell HPA300 – $194

Top Air Purifiers

Honeywell’s slim and affordable model is an excellent air filtration device for those who have never had a purifier before and want to try one out. Not only is the price reasonable, but it comes with several different filtration options which can clean the air in a room up to 5 times each hour. In addition to HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filtration to remove even extra-small particles, this model also has a carbon filter, which can help remove annoying smells. It comes with plenty of different modes and timers too, allowing you to set the speed and schedule when the air purifiers will come on so you don’t have to remember every single day.

Perhaps best of all, the unit also provide on-screen filter replacement reminders. Since a dirty filter will both slow down a purifier and ruin its primary objective, these replacement reminders are important – and useful!

Note: Always pay close attention to the size ratings for models like these. This Honeywell is designed for rooms around 465 square feet, a great size for a bedroom or a similar space. However, keep in mind that air purifiers do make a little noise (thankfully, these newer models are pretty quiet) so make sure you can sleep with one in the room.

HealthMate Standard HM-400 – $539

Here’s a big jump in price for a much larger, more powerful air purifier, designed for buyers who know what they’re doing and want a system that can handle air throughout the house more easily…as long as it fits in the budget.

This filter is also an excellent pick for the health conscious. It has four different stages, which doesn’t make it the fastest purifier around, but certainly one of the most thorough for those who really need certain particles gone. The first two stages remove large and medium-sized particles as a warm up. The third stage is a 15-pound filter of activated carbon and zeolite to take care of odors – a very effective way of removing smoke or cooking smells from an area. The fourth stage is a certified HEPA filter that removes most particles that are larger than 0.3 microns for a final cleaning.

With 360-degree intake, you’ll want to keep this model away from walls to increase its efficiency. It has three speed settings based on your goals, but all three are very effective. In fact, this model can make an excellent commercial option for businesses or contractors if necessary.

Coway AP-1512HH – $230

This Coway model has a bit of a different design for those who like purifiers with more technology and eco-saving capabilities. It, too, has four stages of filtration, although they are different from the HealthMate stages: There’s a pre-filter, a carbon filter, a true HEPA filter, and then a “vital ION” filter. That ion filter is an interesting addition: It uses an ionized plate to attract particles – much like static – and trap them on the surface, an extra type of filtration that works well for larger, non-organic particles.

There’s also Energy Star features that can help you save money – and the time you may spend fiddling with settings. The auto mode is particularly useful, since it adjusts air flow speed based on how many particles the unit is pulling out of the air. If the unit goes for 30 minutes without detecting many particles, then it will shut off to conserve energy.
