It's 2015, almost 2016 and we are living in a time where new technology and breakthroughs in science happen each and everyday across the world. Here on the tech space, we see new gadgets announced each and everyday. In this video, I'll be highlighting several of the best tech devices released in November of 2015. Given the nature of the world we live in, I simply can't cover every tech device released in November but I can show you some of my favorites. Links to all the tech devices mentioned in this video will be in the description for your convenience. With that said, let's go ahead and start small and work our way up, shall we?
Chipolo Bluetooth Tracker
This is Chipolo, the accessory that has really save me and my girlfriend (mostly my girlfriend) a ton of time searching for our possessions. It consists of this simple round puck that can be attached to just about anything—keys, a backpack, purse; whatever you want to track. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and it rings when you are searching for it. It shows you the last known location on the map. You can even shake the Chipolo itself to have it ring your phone even if your phone is set on silent. You can get one Chipolo in the color of your choice for only about $30 or you can buy in bulk to save.
Quarter Battery Pack
Many people are calling this item the ultimate iPhone 6s accessory. This is a 5,000mAh battery pack called Quarter that relies on a MacBook's MagSafe power adapter to charge. So there are two problems with portable battery packs for Apple products-- they can be very slow to charge and you generally need to carry a separate micro USB charging cable to power them. The Quarter can be attached to a MacBook Pro charger for only around 15-20 minutes to soak up enough power to charge an iPhone 6s battery. The device itself features a very premium aluminum build construction that doesn't have some weight to it and it's about the size of an iPhone 6s. It can lead to a full charge in about 45 minutes using the MagSafe power adapter compared to about 7 hours using a standard charger. It costs only about $50 on Pozible.
Ravean Heated Hooded Jacket
The next tech item that at first doesn't look like a tech item but it probably is my favorite and my most used tech item in the past couple of weeks. It's the Ravean Heated Hoodie. I don't mean to state the obvious but it's cold outside. It's winter in North America and it's getting pretty cold in the northwest. The Ravean hooded jacket keeps me warm as I walk to and from class for example, and to and from my car. I would say it keeps me warm when I exercise outside but let's be real I don't exercise as much as I should nor do I get as much sun as I should. But regardless, the jacket consists of a battery pack that can be used to heat the hoodie in all four quadrants-- in the front and back of the hoodie. Or it can be used to actually charge mobile devices with the included micro USB charging cable. The hoodie itself is made very well. It's not too thin nor is it too thick and the material is incredibly soft to the touch. You can learn more about the Ravean jackets over on Kickstarter. They're pretty awesome.
Plugged Crown Headphones
I have two headphones I want to include in this video and they're designed for two different music lovers. First we have the Plugged Crown over-the-ear headphones. The team over at Plugged include experts from Bose and the US Navy. They feature 4mm drivers that deliver a surprising amount of bass and clarity. I'm certainly a big fan of the simple design of the hardware. There are some large plush ear cushions which isolate the sound. The body of the foams are scratch resistant and they even include a soft case to add some extra protection. In addition, you get some useful music and call controls. Plugged even includes a swag approved Plugged branded hat with your purchase but best of all is that they only cost $100 in black or white color configurations.
Master & Dynamic MW60 Bluetooth Headphones
If you are an audiophile and you're looking for a seriously impressive pair of cans and you're afraid of spending some money on a good sounding pair of headphones, you want to check out the Master & Dynamic's MW60 wireless over-the-ear headphones. These guys are crafted with premium grain leather, lamb-skin leather, stainless steel and aluminum. They feature 45mm Neodymium drivers Bluetooth 4.1 with a machined aluminum antenna to basically guarantee you stay connected to your favorite tunes with no interruptions. When you're paying $550 for headphones, you are paying for functionality. You are paying for sound quality or at least you should be. While the MW60's build is stellar, it's the sound quality that really shines. They deliver a very rich and a very warm sound that is surprisingly clear in high volumes. I crank these guys up and I didn't hear any distortion. If you're a music enthusiast who is looking for a premium set of wireless headphones, you should look no further than the MW60s. They are some of the best cans for the ear.
