Germs – them dirty organisms that more often than not cause grief to mankind to the tune of untold millions in our history. Well, if there is a chance to get rid of them in any way possible, why not? Having said that, your toothbrush is a tool that you use in order to remove whatever nasty food particles that remain after a delicious meal, leaving no room for the likes of tartar to develop, saving your gums in the process. Of course, that would mean the toothbrush is not exactly the cleanest item at home, and when you’re not around, germs are abound to multiply. Why not put to bed any worries of your toothbrush being covered in germs with the $39.95 Million Germ Eliminating Single Toothbrush Sanitizer?
The Million Germ Eliminating Single Toothbrush Sanitizer is capable of making sure that your personal toothbrush remains germ-free, making it different from a multiple toothbrush sanitizer that we have seen in the past. It relies on germicidal UV technology, which is of similar nature used to sanitize instruments in hospitals and dental offices. Taking less than half a dozen minutes to work, it kills off 99.9% of the millions of household germs which are able to accumulate on a toothbrush, and these range from H1N1 to streptococcus, E. coli, salmonella, and listeria. Bacteria, mold, spores, and viruses, all of them do not stand a chance, just make sure that the trio of AA batteries have juice left within to keep it going.

It was just yesterday that we took a look at one of ROCCAT’s latest releases, and that particular model came in the form of the ROCCAT Nyth MMO gaming mouse. Well, it seems that the folks over at ROCCAT are not quite done with yet another piece of gaming hardware for the masses, where this time around, it would not be something as straightforward as an ordinary gaming mouse, but rather, we are talking about the ROCCAT Skeltr integrated smartphone and keyboard combo.
I am quite sure that this will be the first time for many of our dear readers to see the ROCCAT Skeltr, since it is truly a first of its kind device, and holds true for us as well. This ROCCAT-invented, fully integrated smartphone and keyboard combo will be able to bring together social interaction as well as gaming into what ROCCAT deemds as “perfect balance”.
ROCCAT claims that life goes on even as you indulge in your favorite gaming title for a particular session, and more often than not you might come into distractions such as incoming phone calls as well as instant messages flooding your handset as the rest of the world makes an attempt to get into contact with you. This is where the ROCCAT Skeltr comes in then, being the answer to a world where gaming and interaction cross paths with one another, while you make use of a second-screen as part of a tool in the game arsenal.
The feedback-built Skeltr is a Bluetooth compatible device, where it opens the door for smooth visualization of vital PC data to your smart device. It will enable gamers to enjoy their handsets as a highly interactive compliment to the game that one is currently playing, not to mention you get to use your keyboard for easier and faster communication compared to a virtual keyboard on a smartphone.
When it comes to the world of wearable technology, it has been broken down into two different categories – the smart glasses as well as the smartwatch. We have seen the likes of the beautiful Moto 360 where the latter is concerned, and it definitely is a wonder to behold regardless of the angle where you look at it from. However, smart glasses tend to fall back more on the Google Glass so far. This time around, however, we will be looking at the Neptune Pine smartwatch, where the first round of such smartwatches have already been shipped to Kickstarter backers.
It certainly is good news, of course, after a massive campaign success, considering how it has managed to pick up more than 2,800 backers along the way, in addition to having $800,000 pledged for the project. This has shaped up to be a high quality product that will merge untethered connectivity alongside superior design, resulting in a new manner where one is able to interacting with technology, not to mention with each other.
Apart from that, the Neptune Pine also boasts of being the world’s first independent smartwatch. How so, you ask? Well, for starters, the Neptune Pine will enable users to make and receive phone calls and text messages, shoot video and snap photos, check up on their email, browse the web, play music or games, and others, all without the need for a smartphone to act as the “middle person”, so to speak.
If you are also in the market for a powerful fitness tracker, do not discount the Neptune Pine since it will come with a built-in GPS, pedometer, and a compass. When harnessed alongside an app, it is capable of tracking steps, pace, time, laps, and the total number of calories burned. Not only that, the Neptune Pine handset can also be hooked up to mounts or other accessories where it will then “transform” to be a wearable, point-of-view (POV) video camera, shooting in 720p HD video with its rear-facing 5-megapixel camera.
The folks over at ROCCAT have certainly done their bit when it comes to different kinds of gaming hardware (like the ROCCAT Kone Pure Military gaming mouse) that rolled out of their production lines over the years. In fact, here we are with yet another pinnacle of engineering that ought to interest those who are on the lookout for a brand new gaming mouse, since your current one is already in its death throes. I am referring to the ROCCAT Nyth gaming mouse, where it will target more specifically, the MMO gaming market.
The ROCCAT Nyth has been an idea that has been floating around for the longest time already, and to see it come to fruition is definitely something that is worth checking out. In fact, a little bit of brainstorming here and there, and ROCCAT ends up with the Nyth gaming mouse. For instance, MMO mice tend to have massive button grids which are locked in, and the ROCCAT Nyth is no different, although if you are not too happy with the layout, there is another alternative solution – for it to be a wholly modular MMO mouse, complete with interchangeable button combinations which will suit your gaming style the best.
After all, no two gamers are alike, and because of that, ROCCAT did not take the easy way out by allowing them to switch out the in-package button options, leaving it at that. In fact, those who pick up the ROCCAT Nyth gaming mouse will be able to gain access to ROCCAT’s button inventory files, and those that are into 3D printing will also be able to create their very own, now how about that?
In addition, this one of a kind MMO mouse will boast of a replaceable side-part, coupled with button modularity capability, allowing the Nyth to be transitioned into a perfectly fine-tuned MOBA mouse, and of course, for FPS fans, an FPS mouse. This is one of the first few “pure” hybrid mouse out there, a chameleon if you will, which will perfectly match up with each gaming genre. There is no word on pricing as at press time though.
When it comes to the world of notebooks, plenty of different models have churned out in the past, ranging from those that cater to those who simply need to perform some kind of simple word processing, while others do come jam packed with a slew of hardware specifications that would put other desktops to shame. Well, when you are on the road and need to call upon the kind of processing firepower that a desktop can only provide, perhaps it is high time that you checked out the MSI WS60.
The MSI WS60 comes with the enviable self-proclaimed tag of being the world’s thinnest and lightest mobile workstation, now how about that? It certainly is a pretty high calling to live up to actually. The MSI WS60 will boast of state-of-the-art technologies that will include the likes of the NVIDIA Quadro K2100M 3D graphics, an Intel Core i7 processor and MSI’s Super RAID technology. Despite all of the high powered hardware that is packed within, MSI’s most recent workstation will tip the scales at a mere 4.36 lbs., all the while measuring less than 0.8” in terms of thickness, delivering superior performance in an unprecedented sexy design.
This is not the first high powered notebook that MSI has released, as we have seen the MSI GT72 Dominator Pro as recently as a couple of months back, although that would cater more to the gaming crowd. The MSI WS60, however, would lean more in the direction for mobile designers and CAD/CAM engineers. It will merge both the versatility of an ultrabook alongside the performance of a workstation, ensuring that you will be able to enjoy the next level of performance thanks to Thunderbolt connectivity, MSI’s Shortcut Manager, and an array of gaming components.
A vibrant WQHD+ 3K display will work great for those who demand a high level of detail in their work, while you get other professional-grade parts such as a SteelSeries full-color backlight keyboard with Anti-Ghost keys. Arriving in a couple of different configurations, prices start from $2,299.99 onward.
If there ever was a famous astromech droid that has saved the galaxy many times over, not to mention being able to avoid getting eaten, crushed, and recycled, or even grazed by a laser blaster, then it would be the one and only R2-D2. If it is not busy saving the life of a potential Jedi knight, perhaps it is being involved in making sure that your steak does not get overdone as it sizzles on top of the grill, thanks to it appearing in the form of the $19.99 Star Wars R2D2 Kitchen Timer.
Yes sir, this is no ordinary kitchen timer. The Star Wars R2D2 Kitchen Timer already comes with that kind of charm right out of the box, and thanks to some rubber on this astromech droid’s feet, it will stop him from marring your expensively assembled kitchen counter and other surfaces where you place him on. Using this puppy is a snap – all that you need to do is to rotate his head to 60 which will wind up the timing mechanism, where you set the time which you wish to count down. When the timer touches 0, the Star Wars R2-D2 Kitchen Timer will let loose and actual alarm bell for 5 seconds. It would’ve been nicer if his head would rotate and he lights up, followed by his traditional beeps and bloops though.

Most of us these days tend to use our smartphones as the primary outlet to tell the time, although a fair number of us still wear watches around our wrists. It is convenient to check out the time at a glance, but on the other hand, it is also well worth the effort to up the ante by getting a smartwatch. However, that might be a bit more pricey compared to a regular timepiece (if you do not take designer brands into consideration, of course), which is why something like the $129.95 Tick Mark Wristwatch would fit the bill pretty nicely.
The Tick Mark Wristwatch is no smartwatch, but it will definitely require a fair amount of smarts in order to tell the time – at first glance, for new users, of course. This particular wristwatch comes with 28 LEDs that will illuminate in sequence so that it tells the current time, date, and day of the week. There will be a couple of vertical rows of blue LEDs which will match with numbers that have been etched into the watch’s face, where the left row will point to the hour, whereas the right will indicate 10-minute increments as well as single minute increments. As more time elapses, the corresponding LEDs will light up, resulting in an ever-changing display of tick marks (10:15 is shown). It is made out of sturdy electroplated steel that offers reliable splash resistance to boot.
