Who doesn't like headphones? But while browsing for a decent pair, we end up spending a lot sometimes. To help you avoid the hours of digging through the piles of brands, looking for the best deals, this is my top 5 pics of good quality headphones under $15!! ( about 1000 INR )
#1. Sennheiser HD 180 ( @600 INR)

Well, lookie here! The big boys are available under a budget too! Sennheiser make some of the best stuff for audiophiles in the world, and these headphones are no slouch either. They're an excellent buy for the price and will give you a taste of what Sennheiser is truly capable of!
BUY

#2. Sony MDR-ZX 110A ( @593 INR)
 Sony makes some comfortable headphones that I've ever seen. The MDR-ZX are not the greatest out there, but they definitely managed to impress me by what they gave to offer at the price. Seriously, you can't go wrong with these modest pair of comfy and robust  headphones. One thing to keep in mind is that the cables are not meant for tug of war! So…

Asus ROG G20CB: A new dope gaming PC!

Image
Asus has a popular gaming laptops and PC series called ROG: Republic Of Gamers. They constantly push the imaginable limits of a gaming PC to outstanding levels. This here is one such example and a true beast of a performer. And this is an overview of the Asus ROG G20CB tower gaming PC.






Specs: Lets talk hardware first: Intel core i7 6th gen processor with SkyLake architecture 3.6GHz clock speed turbo boost up to 4GHzNvidia GeForce  GTX980 GPU16GB DDR3L RAM256 GB SSD
The laptop has 2 internal fans and vapor chamber cooling system. There is no fan outlets seen on the exterior which gives it great looks. The newer SSD is 16 times faster than a standard SATA3 hard drive.

They've used special noise damping tech to make it fun quiet at just 22 dB. They say it's quite than your library which is usually noisy around 30 dB. That's something to look forward to, if you keep it on overnight to download games.

Augmented reality on a smartphone! (UPDATED)

Image
I've posted about Google tango before. It's in this very blog. Click here if you missed it. Anyway this is an update to that.
The first phone to have Google tango was the Lenovo phab 2 pro.
The specs weren't listed back then, now they're available. This is kind of a review of the dope Lenovo phablet, phab 2 pro.

Design: There phone's a phablet, so it ought to be of a large form factor. Holding this guy on one hand is the same expertise as the earlier tablets, bulky and slippery. But you can't complain as it's meant to be big. It's made out of powder coated magnesium with nice chamfers around the edges. It's quite bulky door today's standards coming in at 10 mm thickness and 259 gm heft! Yeah, one handed use is out of the picture. But it feels premium though, with neat cut corners and well a finished body.
Both the volume rocker and the power button are on the right side, and port array is on the bottom. It still has microUSB port, not USB type-C…

Dope Gaming tech from Acer

Image
Gamers among you will know about the Acer predator series of gaming devices. They are a hardcore set of gadgets exclusively meant for handling intensive graphics. There are 3 devices in the series : predator 15, predator 8 and predator 6. The numbers associate with the screen sizes. So predator 15 is a gaming laptop, predator 8 is a tablet, and predator 6, my favorite, is a smartphone.
Predator 15

This is the most popular front of living room gaming. Most people prefer laptops for gaming. The predator 15 has variable specs based on your region, but here are the general specs: Intel core i7 6th gen processor, 3GB VRAMNvidia GeForce GTX900M GPU15' display, 4K resolution supported( another 17' variant also available)16GB DDR3 RAM1TB HDD+ 128GB SSDWindows 10 64 bit

Image
We all like extended usage time on our smartphones. Some of us carry around some power banks to get immediate juice; others whip out some bulky battery packs to put on their phones as a life support for the battery! But if you want to get a power packed device with more than enough juice under the hood, here are my top 5 pics of mega battery smartphones under 15K INR. The list is made by keeping in mind the performance that you get alongside the biggest possible battery unit.

Top 5 best budget earphones

Image
Here is a list that I moved here from my site. These are my top 5 pics of earphones under 800 INR.


#1.Evidson sound supreme X55

Evidson is a lesser known brand, but they plan to change that with the soundsupreme X55. These are really well built and well under a decent budget of 518 INR.

Buy from Amazon



#2. Philips SHQ-1200
Philips have been well known for their stylish and budget friendly products for quite a while now. They've done it yet again with their in ear headphones which, though they look odd, are surprisingly comfortable and well made. ​They cost around 450 INR.

Buy from Amazon
#3. Skullcandy JIB S2DUDZ
These guys are among the top players of the headphone department. Skullcandy makes some pretty dope headphones and their in-ear styles are no exception. But this entry here is not priced over our heads. It costs just around 500 INR, and sounds brilliant.
Buy from Amazon


#4. Panasonic RP-HJE125E-K Panasonic have made their name on the television realm and now they're reaching out…

A 10mm thin dope LAPTOP!!

Image
HP spectre is the world's thinnest laptop which is released till date, coming in around 10.4mm in thickness! The laptop has already been released in china about 4 days ago and making its way to India soon.

HP have built it with extreme precision and displayed cleanest craftsmanship that you might find on any portable device out there๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ.
Spec wise, the Spectre has 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD, and an IPS LCD display of 13.3". Powering this sleek machine is the Intel core i7 processor clocked at about 3Ghz. They haven't used the fanless intel M processors that other slim laptops use. They managed to put a heat sync pipe which dissipates heat out of the spectre, without a fan. Well done, HP!

In the realm of thin laptops, usually your wallet gets thinner too๐Ÿ˜‚. But that may not be the case here. The HP spectre retails for a reasonable price of 78,000 INR. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a sleek and premium laptop, without sacrificing any performance at all๐Ÿ˜Š✌.

This is it, people. The most near-perfect virtual reality headset that mankind has ever witnessed till date!
​ Introducing , foveVR.


This is the world's first Eye tracking VR headset!

The biggest challenge for any virtual reality engine has always been eye movement. Nobody has ever managed to implement navigation just by rolling your eyes around๐Ÿ˜… ; you have to turn your head to navigate the environment being rendered. But these guys have done it๐Ÿ‘.

​You can use your eyes like a mouse pointer and interact with the native UI. Just like iron man's helmet!๐Ÿ˜Ž How cool is that! The headset has all the usual good stuff like its PC compatible, you can stream active or passive content directly onto it. Its just really well made.

A smartphone with legit night-vision!

Image
This, is the Lumigon T3 smartphone with built in IR flash on both front and rear cameras to capture real night vision footage! How awesome is that! This is the first manufacturer who has incorporated this technology in a smartphone. 

It has a beautiful 4.8" full hd AMOLED display on the front with corning gorilla glass 4 protection and stereo speakers. It also has military grade durability ratings for water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor as well.


Powering this thing is a considerable piece of silicon. Mediatek helio X10 octacore processor clocked at 2.2Ghz with 3GB LPDDR3 RAM. There is 128gb on-board storage.



The main attraction; the camera. It has a dual cam setup. One is a regular 13mp sensor with dual led flash. Another is a 4mp larger sensor with an IR flash. Front camera is a standard 5mp shooter with a mild flash.

Its just marvellous that we keep pushing the boundaries of what a smartphone can do and what can still be done. Maybe the future isnt so far after all๐Ÿ˜‰…
