Mokibo Bluetooth keyboard is also a large multi-touch touchpad

While there's a wide variety of keyboards and mice available for desktops users, users on the go have fewer choices if they want to keep the number of peripherals they bring low. There are Bluetooth keyboards that do come with a touchpad but those can hardly be called portable. Enter the Mokibo, a rather ingenious new keyboard that combines both keyboard and mouse in one thing and light package. Not by shrinking the touchpad to almost unusable levels but by enlarging it to the same size as the keyboard itself.

TRIO promises the triple screen laptop of your dreams

TRIO promises the triple screen laptop of your dreams

When Razer unveiled its Project Valerie prototype at CES 2017, it unsurprisingly became the butt of jokes. While having a multi-monitor setup on a desk isn't exactly novel, having a laptop with three screens is just a few steps shy of ridiculous. Of course, the same benefits apply but the inconvenience and price of such a contraption are almost unthinkable. Along comes Mobile Pixels with the idea to simply stick on or two screens on any laptop and call it TRIO.

IT’S OK is a portable cassette player with Bluetooth audio support

What was old is new again in the entertainment industry with old consoles getting mini makeovers and vinyl coming back in fashion. For some people, however, their first music experience wasn't with phonograph but with cassette players. The darling of the 80s, cassettes were perhaps the last stage of the analog audio world before MP3s became, and still are, the king. In time for the retro revolution, the IT'S OK campaign popped up on Kickstarter to bring back the beloved audio device with a slightly modern twist.

Canon IVY REC clippable camera coming to Indiegogo soon

Once upon a time, crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo were the go-to places for making dreams come true. It's where projects that would have never been greenlit by companies went to become reality. These days, those companies have also jumped on that bandwagon to hold pre-orders or gauge interest in a product they will sell later on for a higher pricee. The latest to use that strategy is Canon whose IVY REC will try to make lifelogging a thing again.

Canon IVY REC is pretty much a new HTC Re

Canon IVY REC is pretty much a new HTC Re

The folks at Canon have a new camera they want you to see, a camera that'll go with you wherever you like, clipped to your belt loop. This camera is the Canon IVY REC, and upon first glance, it reminded us of one of the most strange cameras ever made: the HTC Re. The HTC Re looked for all the world like a fat pipe, the likes of which you'd use to capture video and photos anywhere you went with a tap of its giant physical backside button.

Shenmue 3 to refund backers who don’t want Epic Games Store keys

Shenmue 3 to refund backers who don’t want Epic Games Store keys

Epic Games kicked up a storm when it announced its own Epic Games Store with a not so subtle challenge at Valve’s Steam and, more importantly, industry business practices. But while it presented itself as a champion of developers and gamers, both camps chided Epic Games for pushing developers and publishers to put their games exclusively on that store. Nowhere has that clamor been more audible than with the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter who will now be refunding backers who don’t feel like supporting Epic Games in any way whatsoever.

GPD P2 Max wants to redefine Ultrabook laptops

GPD P2 Max wants to redefine Ultrabook laptops

Shenzen-based manufacturer GPD has really come a long way from its relatively obscure origins. Its name originally stood for “GamePad Digital” and it made a living out of making Android gaming handhelds. It has since then moved on to cater to an equally niche market of handheld PC and UMPC computers. Having filled the market with such five to seven-inch devices, GPD has returned to Indiegogo to “crowdfund” its latest product, the GPD P2 Max “Ultrabook”.
