Gadgets are fun to use, and we all appreciate them more if they last a long time. It is frustrating when you constantly have to fix them due to one problem or the other. To avoid this, you need to know how to maintain them.
I accept the inevitable: wireless communication will become the standard on all electronic devices. This includes earphones and headphones. But I won’t like it.
Scent diffusers are interesting home gadgets. They can instantly generate a streaming mist out of a mixture of water and essential oils. They are also similar to nebulizers, machines used to deliver respiratory medication through direct inhalation.
The most interesting thing about them is that they do vapor production without using heat. Diffusers use ultrasonic technology. There’s basically an electronic plate in its internals that vibrates at a very high frequency. This makes the oil and water molecule to disperse as tiny droplets into the air.
When the first computer mouse was invented in the 60s, its electronics innards were housed in a small wooden box that’s about as large as a hand. It had wheels on the underside to track movement and it had one small button at the left-hand corner. Unwieldy, yes, but groundbreaking.
The keys of a keyboard pretty much work like any electronic button. Depressing the key causes an underlying circuit to complete, sending a signal that’s interpreted as an input. But how the keys feel is also intentional by design. So here are three keyboard designs worth knowing.
We’ve been seeing a slow but steady resurgence of the anachronistic vinyl records. But the vinyl record seems to hold no advantage over modern music formats.
It’s bulky, limiting you to 8-12 songs for every 12-inch platter. Compare that to the thousands of songs available on tap from streaming applications. Its claimed high audio fidelity is suspect but even if a record is hi-fi, it’ll only be temporary. Records are fragile. They wear out with playing and they can be scratched, warped, and broken.
I’m old enough to remember when television sets were hulking pieces of furniture. Though the images they produced pale in comparison with today’s technology and the choices for content were severely limited, there is something to be said about the interface of the appliance.
We have all witnessed the beneficial role that smartwatches have had on human life. The fundamental aim of the smartwatch was to allow people to operate their handset without having to handle them physically. The smartwatches are linked to the phones via Bluetooth technology, allowing users to access such functions. As technologies constantly develop, the user-friendliness of smartwatches has advanced to the extent that they are used as essential monitors of an individual’s health status. Specific features have been integrated into their functioning to allow an individual to keep track of their health status. These features are meant to give people the ability to have more control of their health status.
It was in the mid-1990s when Motorola released the StarTac which many consider the first clamshell or flip phone. The design offers the advantage of having a phone that’s large enough to be easily manipulated with one hand, and when folded would be small enough to pocket comfortably.
After months of speculation and anticipation from excited fans and industry experts, Nintendo has finally released its latest iteration of the venerable Nintendo Switch: the Nintendo Switch OLED.
