» Technology Reviews

I'll admit I'm a sucker for technology of the high kind. But for me, it's not about chasing the latest iteration of a phone that only offers marginal improvements.
Instead I get typicaly get excited for technonolgy that enables me to do new things and have new outlets. I like the bleeding edge, not the newest disposable phone.

Whenever I pick up something that I'm excited about, I'll review it here!

 
Ricoh Thea M15

Theta M15 360 Camera

I LOVE This device! I originally got to try a Theta M15 camera at the 2015 San Mateo Maker Faire. We gathered around and took a group shot. It was cool, but it’s impressiveness hadn’t sunken in on me yet. Recently … Continue reading

CreoPop

CreoPop

I recently came up on a CreoPop 3D Pen. I’ve since had a chance to play with it, and here’s my critical review. I have to mention that, I am a huge fan of 3D printers – however, 3D Printer … Continue reading

Brookstone Virtual Keyboard Green

Virtual Laser Keyboard

I was kinda shocked when I saw this sitting on the shelf. I have seen pictures of a device like this on the Internet for years. I never thought it was actually made for consumers, it seemed more like a … Continue reading

iBlazr

iBlazr Flash

At my previous job we had an internal mailing list where people would post stuff for sale, like a mini craigslist. In a huge corporation you can sort through hundreds of posts a day. Being a thrifty-geek I ended up … Continue reading

Poseidon Z Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Poseidon Z

One of my hobbies is finding the perfect keyboard. In my mind, that’s an open-ended goal. Nothing is perfect, so there will always be something better. As such, I find myself changing out keyboards every few months when something exciting … Continue reading

Apple - iPhone 6

iPhone 6

The Apple iPhone 4S was actually my first review in the technology review section. It’s not surprising – I have had that phone forever. I was very impressed with the longevity of the 4S. It lasted me slightly over 3 … Continue reading

Wacom Intuous Pro

Wacom Intuous Pro

This is my third Wacom product review. A while back I reviewed the Graphire drawing tablet, then the Wacom CintiQ 21UX. If you remember my Graphire review – it wasn’t exactly glowing. It was the first drawing tablet I ever … Continue reading

Wii U

Wii U

A couple years ago I picked up a Nintendo 3DS XL. It was the first Nintendo console I had owned since the N64, and it made me fall in love with video games again. Review Here. I’ve wanted a Wii … Continue reading

Vibe 2.1 Speakers

VIBE 2.1 Mini Speakers

As I’ve written about before, I enjoy gambling on cheap technology. Most of the time I’m pleasantly surprised with the quality, and at a minimum I would say I at least break even. But nothing can excuse this product. No … Continue reading

Portable Sega Genesis Player

Portable Sega Genesis Player

About 5 or 6 years ago I saw one of these in a blister pack hanging on the shelves at Fry’s Electronics. Instead of blue trim it was orange, and instead of $40 I think it was $70. At the … Continue reading

Mini Projector

Mini Projector

Sometimes I’m in the mood to gamble on some cheap technology. I don’t necessarily care about the cutting edge tech – sometimes it fun to see what you can get for a few bucks. Enter a $36 projector from amazon.com. … Continue reading

Lytro - Light Feild Camera

Lytro Light Field Camera

I made a passing comment about how cool light field cameras are to a friend. To my shock and surprise, I was gifted one for Christmas! If you’re unfamiliar with Light Field cameras, here’s the basic jist: instead of focusing … Continue reading

Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2)

Oculus Rift DK2

I previous reviewed the first consumer Oculus rift, and alluded to making a demo for it. Well, I did in fact make the Jerry’s Place demo for my first Oculus. Not too long after, the DK2 was released. After trying … Continue reading

Portable NES

Portable NES

I really want to live this thing. I really do. But… but…. As I mentioned previously, I’m a sucker for nostalgia. When I heard there was a consumer available portable NES, I had to own one. Here’s what you get with … Continue reading

Classic Controller USB Adaptors

Classic Controller Adapters

I’m very strongly affected by nostalgia. I find it hard to throw away things from my past, no matter how insignificant – as long as there’s a memory attached, it’s hard to part with. Of course, I’m not quite a … Continue reading

Ultimaker

Ultimaker Original

I’ve wanted a 3D printer for years… almost four years if I recall correctly. The day has finally come. My coworker gave me a heads-up that her friend was selling her Ultimaker original. I made an offer and took home … Continue reading

Wacom CintiQ 21UX

Wacom CintiQ 21UX

If you already peeped my Wacom Graphire article, you’d know that my main problem with graphics tablets was trying to coordinate my hand to draw while looking at a screen instead of the drawing surface. The other problem was the … Continue reading

Wacom Graphire

Wacom Graphire Tablet

I don’t expect too many people to find this post by searching for Graphire reviews, I know the hardware is pretty outdated these days. But I just got a Wacom CintiQ (review coming next!) so I wanted to write a … Continue reading

Mac Book Pro 15"

Mac Book Pro 15″

My current job gave me the choice between a Mac or a PC, but strongly encouraged Macs. I didn’t care though, I was super excited to try out Macs. I love my iPhone, and I’ve always been a fan of … Continue reading

Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift

Back Story If you read my Nintendo 3DS XL article, you’d know I’m a fan of 3D things. In fact, when I got my first paycheck from my old job at Cisco, I immediately splurged on a bunch of hardware … Continue reading

Android Mini PC

Android Mini PC

I had a large credit on Deal Extreme so I decided to spend it on this Mini Android PC that came packed with the Mini Wireless Keyboard. Basically it’s a Android device that plugs into HDMI and is powered by … Continue reading

Mini Keyboard

Mini Wireless Keyboard

I picked this guy up from Deal Extreme as part of package deal with the Android Mini PC, although it is sold separately. At first I was skeptical because I don’t like rechargeable things. I would much rather have one … Continue reading

Nintendo 3DS + XL

Nintendo 3DS (XL)

I remember the first time I saw a 3DS; a few years ago I was wandering around Frys, and came across one on demo. I was blown away – how could I have not known this marvelous device existed? I’ve … Continue reading

NOOK HD Plus

NOOK HD Plus

For the past three years my old tablet was an iPad 1. Suddenly I find tablets appearing out of thin air all around me. I already reviewed the Asus MeMO, and the Asus Nexus 7. Next up comes the Barnes … Continue reading

ASUS Nexus 7

ASUS Nexus 7

You may have read my recent ASUS MeMO Pad review. Well I’m no longer in possession of that device, and thankfully replaced it with an ASUS Nexus 7. My friend found a deal on the 2013 Nexus that involved trading … Continue reading

ASUS MeMO Pad

ASUS MeMO Pad

Recently I came across a good deal on an ASUS MeMO pad, so I took it. Now, I wasn’t in the market for a tablet as I already had an iPad 1 that fell out of use. At this point … Continue reading

iPhone 4S

iPhone 4S

You might think it’s weird to review a 2 year old phone – 2 years after it was released. Especially since 2 generations of the phone have been released afterward. But I think it’s a fair and interesting idea to … Continue reading
