The Toshiba Camileo Z100, the Samsung S Pebble MP3 player and the Verbarius Clock.
Toshiba Camileo Z100
If you are buying a digital video camera these days, there’s a baffling array of technology out there. The Toshiba Camileo Z100 squashes a lot of it into one camera. But what you need to know are two things: the first, that the footage will be high quality, and the second that it’s easy to use.
This camera ticks both boxes. That aside, it also offers you glasses-free 3D, an electronic image stabiliser to try to eliminate as much of that shaky footage as possible, and the ability to shoot still pictures up to 16 megapixels in resolution.
And it’s slim and lightweight too.
Samsung S Pebble MP3 player
Mobile phones may be getting bigger screens, but those large handsets aren’t the most convenient to carry around as a music player. So what to do? Try Samsung’s pebble-sized MP3 player instead.
The miniature music device will hold more than 17 hours of music in its 4GB storage capacity, and you can copy all your music from your Samsung Galaxy S3 to it directly. No need to bring a PC into the mix any more. The music controls are all touch sensitive, and small sliders control the shuffle and power buttons. O2 is offering the device free with S3 purchases.
Who needs numbers? Or Roman numerals? Or even a clock you can make sense of? Nothing confuses you more in the morning than a clock that announces it is “Mitternacht” instead of the boring 0:00 that your digital timepiece tells you. The Verbarius clock spells out the time for you, you see. And it changes format every minute.
Aside from the confusion, the Verbarius clock has a couple of different benefits. First of all, it’s more interesting than your average clock.
And secondly, it comes with five different languages, so you can start your foreign language education by trying to figure out exactly what time it in Portuguese, Spanish, or even Russian.
