Google’s Next VR Device

Google Cardboard

The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group. -Ed

Google launched its Cardboard virtual reality headset designed as a cost-effective introduction to virtual reality. At less than $30, users with a smartphone could experience VR without spending a small fortune. More powerful devices like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive will cost over $500 upon release after all. Cardboard is a simple contraption made from cardboard, lenses, and a rubber band.

Features and Specs
Perhaps the best feature of Google Cardboard is its absolute simplicity. Aside from two lenses and rubber bands, Cardboard is made from cardboard cutouts. Pre-built kits can be purchased online from various retailers. DIY-oriented individuals can craft a Cardboard unit from a random box, though. From there, a smartphone is positioned in the device, and users can experience virtual reality on a budget. Nothing is more simple than Cardboard.

Foldio360 Turntable Makes It Easy to Take 360 Degree Product Shots

foldio360-photo-turntable-4

If you’re running a little online shop, getting good images of the products you sell is pretty important. To make the task easier, Foldio already sells a lightbox called Foldio Studio and now they’re adding another item to their lineup: the Foldio360. It’s a turntable that accepts objects up to 5 kg (11 lb) in weight, and rotates them slowly so you can photograph them from every side. To blur the line between the bottom of the table and the lightbox, it features a light at the back. It can trigger your iPhone camera through Bluetooth, and nicer dSLRs through IR. “Photographs can then be compiled into interactive 360 degree images using the app and the Foldio360 Online service. From there they can be embedded into websites and exported as GIFs or MP4s.” It’s doing the Kickstarter dance at the moment, with an $89 pledge ($139 with the lightbox) to secure yours with a July shipping date.

Deal Of The Day: 91% Off On A lifetime Subscription to Getflix

getflix

VPNs are great, but they have their drawbacks. Once turned on, all your Internet get routed through them, which means you better get a really fast one or you’ll experience slowdowns even for the traffic that wouldn’t normally benefit so much from going through a VPN. Getflix is a little different.

Watching Netflix, Hulu or other streaming services can unfortunately be difficult while traveling outside the US. Rather than bypass these restrictions with the help of a complex and slow VPN, choose a faster and simpler solution with Getflix. Instead of rerouting all your Internet traffic through a different server, this handy service only routes the traffic needed so you can still enjoy top Internet speeds. Getflix unblocks more than 100 streaming channels around the world so you can watch movies, TV, sports, and more wherever life may take you.

– Access popular global streaming services from anywhere around the world
– Access over 50+ VPN nodes
– Enjoy a fast & reliable solution for watching TV, listening to online radio & more
– Benefit from easy-to-use Smart DNS technology
– Get a free, optional VPN & SmartVPN account to encrypt all your traffic with 256Bit SSL encryption
– Use w/ all of your favorite devices (unlimited)
– Utilize the services without needing to install any software
– Please note: Getflix doesn’t replace the need for a subscription streaming service

Normally you’d have to pay $855 for a lifetime subscription to a service like this. But with today’s deal, it’s yours for $69!

LEGO Hoping To Cash In On New Ghostbusters’ Action

ghostbusters-1

So you might have heard: there’s a new Ghostbusters movie on the way. Those of you who grew up in the 80’s will probably smile at this retro reboot, and LEGO thinks they can cash in by selling you a brand new set. They’ll be releasing the ECTO-1 car and ECTO-2 motorbike sets, complete with characters and gear on July 1st, two weeks before the movie hits theatres. There aren’t any real spoilers in their contents, except maybe the presence of a new Red Deamon character; it’s not like anyone expected the exact same cast to be present this time around. It’ll be $60 for the set.

Beautiful 3D Printed Flatware

fork2as

3D printing tech keeps advancing, and we’re starting to see some pretty eye-catching stuff become available for purchase. This set of utensils from Francis Bitoni Studio uses 3D metal printing tech, and is finished in sterling silver. It’s called Setae Flatware, and features four metal strands that intertwine gracefully to finish in a point. Or… in little bowl in the case of the spoon. Or… an edge, in the case of the knife. Well, you get the point. They’re very nice looking and would fit right in the Lord of the Rings universe. Luckily for you, they’re available in this universe, although we don’t know for how much.

Cat Ear Motorcycle Helmets Are A Thing That Exists

casco-moto-orejas-gato

We’re all for having a little bit of originality, but we’re not sure how to feel when that effort involves strapping something like these cat ear motorcycle helmets to our heads. They’re called the Neko-Helmets and they use a IXS-1000 base, which is then customized with these fibreglass ears. They apparently offer no additional wind resistance up to 60mph, and will break off in case of a fall. At 1,780 grams, they’re not the lightest helmets on the road, but it’s not like you were expecting that when purchasing a novelty item. Prices start at $495 and go up to $660.
