I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m kind of a sucker for cool stuff. I like nifty gadgets, quirky decoration pieces, nice clothes (and shoes!), good books, and fun games.
In this series of weekly posts, I share whatever currently has my fancy. Maybe some of it will catch yours as well!
VIDEO OF THE WEEK:
As usual, Nike kills it with this inspiring video that celebrates 25 years of “Just Do it.”
The TiVo Roamio is a little set-top box that packs a lot of functionality.
It can, of course, record a ton of content (up to 75 HD hours/500 SD hours, and up to four shows at once), but it also lets you access your favorite video apps (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube), AND it can stream all of your recorded content on any iOS device with the TiVo app. It also serves as a media server, which you can use to play music, view photos and videos.
The Sigmo Voice Translation Device connects to your iOS or Android device over Bluetooth and, using existing online translation services, translates whatever you say into one of 25 different languages.
All you do is speak into the microphone, and it then translates and plays back what you say through the speaker. It’s very small and light, so you can bring it anywhere. Pretty awesome.
