Roll-Up Musical Keyboard: Bring out the kid in you

Roll-Up Musical Keyboard Product PageHave you ever seen the movie 'Big'? It's one of Tom Hank's original films. It was a real favourite of mine. Anyway there is a memorable scene in it where Tom is in a huge toy store and starts to play "Chopsticks" on a massive keyboard by jumping on the keys imbedded in the floor.

Sennheiser FP 12-C Freeport Bodypack Levalier Microphone System: Ahh the freedom

Sennheiser FP 12-C Freeport Bodypack Levalier Microphone SystemThe other week I had to give a presentation to a group of about 60 people. Nerves were elevated of course, so the last thing I wanted to worry about was the technical side of things. Wireless hand held mics are great, but have you ever noticed that some people tend to let them drop too low from the mouth, making it difficult to hear them. Then of course you have those who put the mic right to their lips. Instead of trying to make out their words, you need ear plugs to ensure your hearing doesn't degrade ten years worth on ten minutes! Well for me, I have the former problem, however I had the luxury of attaching a Sennheiser Lapel mic to my shirt, alleviating any concerns.

The Sennheiser FP 12-C Freeport Bodypack Levalier Microphone System will make even the unprofessional seem professional... within reason of course! By attaching the microphone to your shirt, you don't have to worry about the positioning the handheld yourself and it also frees up your hands for your presentation. Therefore this device is ideal for those who need to perform on stage, like singing, musicals or in the event needing your hands for props. I must say it was the first time I used a clip-on mic and it's weird walking around with your voice being amplified... because you forget you even have a mic attached!!! It was a lot of fun to use though!

Features of the Sennheiser FP 12-C Freeport Bodypack Levalier Microphone System:

* 4 switchable UHF frequencies for interference-free reception
* Absolutely safe transmission
* Diversity Technology for highest reception quality
* Adjustable Squelch for undisturbed operation
* Receivers built in robust metal housing
* Dynamic processor for cristal-clear sound

Polar S1 Footpod: What's your gait??

Polar S1 Footpod Product PageIf it hasn't been half obvious, I've been getting quite excited in recent weeks exposing all the Polar range of products to you Gadgeteers out there. The technology and 'gadget factor' is incredible with these devices. Well I'm pleased to say with the Polar S1 Footpod, my opinion hasn't changed a bit. In fact, if anything, I am now even more impressed.

I just recently got my hands on the Polar S625X. In a nutshell... simply incredible!! It comes bundled with one of the S1 Footpods. Peculiar looking gadget, however phenomenally effective and efficient in operation. It straps securely to your shoe and has a tough exterior to stand up to harsh environments. Then you simply push the 'on' button just before you start running and it synchs to your watch. It measures the acceleration and deceleration of your foot, which varies depending on whether you are running, jogging or walking. Through advanced digital signal processing, it transmits the data to your watch which records the speed and distance, which you can view whist exercising. After you've finished exercising, download all of the data onto you computer (S625X model) and observe a comprehensive analysis of your training.

I was a little skeptical at first as to its accuracy, however after going for a run, my concerns were firmly put to rest. It's remarkably accurate. The S1 Footpod appears simple, but is far from it!

Features of the Polar S1 Footpod:

* Straps securely to shoe
* Only compatible with the Rs200, RS200sd and S625x
* measures speed in km/hr
* measures distance traveled
* Strong build to stand up to harsh weather and environmental conditions

Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 5000 Product PageKeyboards and mice have come a long way. Probably almost as long as the computers they we're made for.

If you're looking for a decent keyboard and mice set, the Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 5000 is worth having a look at. It has all the essential keyboard features like the A-Z keys, enter key, shift and control keys, as well as extra keys for multi-media functions. About the only key that's missing is the "any key".

- 4-Way Scrolling

Losing weight and getting into shape is a tough task, especially when we lead such busy lives, and quite often we simply can't be stuffed!

Well the Polar WM21/WM22 Weight Management Heart Rate Monitor Watch might just help give you the motivation to put thought into action! I know having my Polar watch motivates me to exercise because I get immediate feedback on how I'm going; how hard I'm pushing it, or how hard I'm not!! In a nutshell, it helps me in reaching my goals. And let's face it, anything to encourage and help us to reach our fitness goals is a huge bonus. This clever watch helps you develop a daily program for monitoring what energy you expend versus what you store up. It's the basic formula to losing weight - expend more energy than you consume. By monitoring your calories through the WM21/WM22's HR measurements, you can make sure you are on the right side of the equation to trimming down, and once there, maintaining that 'hardly fought for healthy body' of yours!

I went through a phase where I lost 9kg in 2months. The benefits were incredible! Better self image, more bounce in my step, more alert, the list goes on. If we put in the tough yards, we will reap the benefits. The Polar WM21/WM22 Weight Management Heart Rate Monitor Watch will be sure to help you reach those goals you once thought unnattainable!

OwnCal calculation (in Polar M-series Heart Rate Monitors) takes gender, body weight and exercise heart rate into account. OwnCals calculation (in Polar S-series Heart Rate Monitors) takes VO2max, HRmax and exercise heart rate into account. You can set daily and weekly exercise goals in terms of calorie expenditure with the OwnCal feature, and then monitor the accumulated amount of calories expended during one week or during a single exercise session.

Sennheiser CX 300 In-Ear Headphones: When only hearing is believing!

Sennheiser CX 300 In-Ear Headphones Product PageRecently my Sony headphones decided to RIP on me. Listening to music quite regularly, especially when going for a run, I was in the need of getting some new headphones quickly. The advantage of working at Mr.Gadget, is that I get the heads up on the latest in technology. Well I came across the new Sennheiser CX 300 In-Ear Headphones the other day and thought I would give them a shot.

Let me say that words do not do these earphones justice. I could come up with a variety of extravagant and praising adjectives, but the bottom line is the only way to fully appreciate how good these ear phones are is to use them! I am a fuss pot when it comes to sound. I have been disappointed in the past with the 'tinny' sound that comes out of a lot of ear phones. Well I was immediately delighted with the CX 300's, not only because of their incredible clarity, but also the substantial bass generated from these tiny ear buds. The more I listened, the wider the grin grew on my face! Not everyone is a fan of the 'in-ear' headphones, however these are extremely comfortable and by coming with three different 'bud' sizes, you hardly know they are resting in your aural canal. I even went for a run with them last night and found they gave me the extra bounce in my step I needed... far out it was a tough run!!

For the money you spend on CX 300's, you will be very hard pressed to find an equivalent product. You will be in for an absolute treat with this new edition from the Sennheiser!

Features of the Sennheiser CX 300 In-Ear Headphones:

* Powerful, bass-driven stereo sound
* Perfect fit in the ear canal due to ear adapters in different sizes (included in the delivery)
* Excellent attenuation of ambient noise

Griffin TuneFlex AutoCharger and Flexible Docking Cradle

Griffin TuneFlex AutoCharger and Flexible Docking Cradle Product PageLooks like Griffin doesn't want to be outdone by XtremeMac in the battle for the best iPod accessory. The Griffin TuneFlex AutoCharger and Flexible Docking Cradle is Griffin's way of saying "bring it on". My initial take on this iPod Nano cradle is that Griffin has actually raised the bar a notch. Not a big notch but one nice touch they added makes this Nano car mount just that little bit better. The addition of a built-in line-out audio jack is a nice gesture for all those still driving around with a casette tape deck in their car. For those born post-1990, a tape deck was what your older siblings and parents used to store music, an analog CD if you wish. But if you have an iPod, who needs a CD player in the car right? The TuneFlex let's you use a cassette tape adapter to run your music through your car stereo. However, if you had money enough left over after buying that iPod and bought yourself a car stereo without a tape deck, you can always use the dock connector pass through to transmit the Backstreetboys through with an iTrip.

Features of the Griffin TuneFlex AutoCharger and Flexible Docking Cradle:
- Flexible steel neck
- Handy dock connector pass through
- Compatible with Griffin iTrip with Dock Connector fm transmitter
- Powered through your car's cigarette lighter
- Built-in line-out audio jack

Polar Wearlink T31 Coded Transmitter: at last you can change the battery yourself!

Polar Wearlink T31 Coded TransmitterWhen I bought my Polar heart rate monitor a few years ago, as impressed as I was, I found the transmitter band a little uncomfortable and restrictive. With the front third of the band being hard plastic, it may not mould to your body shape as intended, thus reducing the quality of the cardiac signal being sent to the Polar watch. To help reduce this problem you can tighten the strap, but then it gets rather restrictive and can increase the work of breathing. Let's face it, we have enough of a struggle just trying to beat our PB, let alone worry about our intercostal contractions being hampered leading to a mild restrictive pattern. In other words, harder for the rib cage to expand and contract. Did I mention I worked as a Respiratory Scientist before becoming a Gadgeteer!

Anyway, to combat this problem, Polar have brought out the Polar Wearlink T31 Coded Transmitter. This is the first 'soft transmitter belt' to hit the Polar range. The transmitter is sown into the elasticised strap, meaning the transmitter belt contours to your body much more effectively. Having no rigid plastic section at the front, the Wearlink Transmitter is much more comfortable and is able to pick up a signal more efficiently. But you know what the best thing is... you can change the battery yourself!!! No more sending your transmitter to Polar to be replaced. Just change the battery yourself and you're reading to hit the track running again! Although coming standard with the M series, the Wearlink T31 Transmitter can be bought as a separate accessory which is why I'm putting it up at Mr.Gadget! No more restrictive patterns for you sports buffs out their, unless you may have some exercise induced asthma... and if that's the case... make sure you take your salbutamol, humm ventolin, beforehand!

Features of the Polar Wearlink T31 Coded Transmitter:

* Electrode engineered into fabric strap
* Coded technology which eliminates interference from other HRM users
* Changeable battery
* Battery life (2 years)
* Replaceable fabric strap (Life of strap - 100 machine washings +40degrees Celsius)
* Water resistant to 30m
* Available exclusively with the M62, M61, M32 and M31
* Available as an accessory

Polar S625X Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch: How fast am I running??

Polar S625X Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch Product PageOk you serious runners out there... have a look at this and be honest when I ask you whether you wish you had this beauty strapped around your wrist. For those who train to reach their peak performance in running fitness, the Polar S625X Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch will give you all you need to reach the top.

The Polar S625X is basically a combination of the RS200sd and S610i. Like the RS200sd, the S625X comes with the foot pod that enables you to measure foot speed and distance traveled. This is ideal for interval training and helps you to know exactly how hard you are pushing. No more guessing how far you really ran and how fast you ran it in. As with the S610i, the S625X transfers all you exercise data onto you PC via an infrared uplink, where you can analyse and keep a diary of all your training and results. I can't emphasise how beneficial this is. To graph all your data you get to see exactly how you performed and where you can improve. It also adds that extra motivation, especially when you compare your improved results with your older data.

Foot Pod attached to shoe to measure speed and distance runOne function the S625X has which I really wish my Polar heart rate watch had, is the capability to store up to 5 extended training sessions without having to download them onto your computer. With my S410, I can only store one training session. So I need to download the data before I start recording another session, otherwise I lose it all! This is really annoying if you don't have access to your computer in between training sessions. And if triathalon is your thing, you can add the cycling features so you can keep on top of you game on the bike as well as the run. The Polar S625X sure is a complete package and one I would love to get my hands onto. If you're serious about your training, consider nothing else then this absolute beauty of a watch!!



Features of the Polar S625X Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch:

* Speed and Distance. Motivate your training sessions with accurate speed, distance and pace per km/mile. View Demo

* Polar OwnOptimizer. Train and rest in the right balance. Polar OwnOptimizer test tells you whether you have recovered enough for your next training session. View Demo

* IrDa. Transfers data to and from a PC using infrared communication. Infrared communication, or IrDa, allows for two-way exchange of settings and exercise data with a PC.

* Optional cycling cross-functionality Polar S625X Running Computer is fully compatible with all Polar cycling sensors(speed, distance, cadence and power output). Base your training on heart rate, speed, cadence, altitude and optional power output information. The Complete Cycling System consists of a Bike Mount Set, Speed and Cadence Sensors and an optional Power Output Sensor Set.

* Mobile Connectivity
Review, store and send your training data with your Nokia 5140 mobile phone.View Demo

Polar S610i Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch: Watch your performances improve

Polar S610i Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch Product PageWhen I first purchased my heart rate monitor, I wasn't sure how much of an impact it would have on my training. It proved to be quite significant. It's great to have the instant feedback as to how hard you're working. Sometimes you feel worse than you really are going physiologically and vice verse. Having a Polar heart rate monitor ensures you know where your body is at and how hard you are working. What I love is the capability of using the lap time function and observing the average and max heart rates for each interval.

What would be even more advantageous would be able to analyse all this data. Well you can with the Polar S610i Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch, by downloading all your exercise data onto your computer via an infrared sensor. Utilising the Polar Precision Performance Analysis Software, you are able to graph and tabulate all your exercise data. This is a great way to see how you performed through your training and to help in discovering ways of improving results. It has a diary so you can plan your training sessions and it keeps a summary of what percentage of your maximum heart rate you worked at during each week. These Polar watches go so far past just telling the time it's not funny. You have such a freedom of options to work with... and did I mention they look really cool to!

Features of the Polar S610i Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch:

* Exercise Set (extended exercise profiles) Create training sessions with individual settings for duration and heart rate limits. A feature that allows selecting exercise programs for interval training including heart rate target zones and recovery calculations.

* Multiple Files. Stores several files containing training session data for further reference. In Polar S810i, S720i, S710i, S610i Heart Rate Monitors you can store up to 99 different exercise files.

Polar RS200sd Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch: Must run faster!

Polar RS200sd Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch Product PageWhen one is training, whether it be for a race, sport or just recreational, the more feedback you get back on your performance the more you have to monitor you progress. A heart rate monitor is a basic tool used to see how hard you are working and to ensure you are training appropriately. Well the Polar RS200sd Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch takes things to a whole new level!

Sure this intelligent computer measures your heart rate, indicates which training zone you're in, prevents cross talk to other monitors, has a fitness test component and can store up to a whopping 99lap times, however there is one special feature that stands this, dare I say it, 'watch' ahead of the rest. It comes with a 'foot pod' that provides you with your speed and distance traveled! Have a look at this demo. I have used a polar watch for exercising for a while now and this feature would be so handy for training sessions, especially interval work. Have this RS200sd strapped to your wrist and you will know exactly how hard you're working. You know what they say... no pain, no gain!

Features of the Polar RS200sd Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch:

The training is divided into five zones based on percentages of your maximum heart rate: very light (50-60%HRmax), light (60-70% HRmax), moderate (70-80%HRmax), hard (80-90% HRmax) and maximum (90-100% HRmax).

* ZonePointer
Makes it easy to stay in your target zone. A visible and moving symbol on the display of your Polar product indicating that you are inside the pre-set target zone.

* ZoneLock
Simply the easiest way to set a target zone. You can activate a target zone with a press of a button during your run. You can also deactivate the zone alarm just as easily - by pressing a button.

Creative Zen Vision:M : iPod's Bane

Creative Zen Vision:M Product PageBeing named as an "iPod killer" is an acheivement only surpassed by the title of "iPod" itself. The Creative Zen Vision:M is one such device. Actually, it could be the only device worthy of the title. Initial observations would lead one to believe that it's just another iPod wannabe dressed up differently enough to give itself some street cred. But on closer inspection, it's really a media player that goes one notch higher than the bar set by the iPod. That's a high bar by anyone's standard. It's like Creative listened to all the moans and groans of iPod buyers and created a newer, better, iPod. Only it's a Zen. Apple will have to really pull out bigger guns on their next iPod incarnation if they want to stay on top!

Features of the Creative Zen Vision:M :
- 120 hours of movies
- Tens of thousands of photos
- An amazing 15,000 songs
- Movie and Photo Slideshows

Polar F4 Fitness Watch: Reap the benefits of an active lifestyle

Polar Men's F4 Fitness Watch Product PageMy brother and I stood at the bottom of one of the highest peaks surrounding the quiet village of Bamff, smack bang in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. There was a chair lift going to the summit, but that would be too easy! We were told the average time was 2.5 to 3hrs to make the arduous hike up the 7.5km, zigzagging path on the mountain face. Scoffing at that time, we were both determined to overcome the challenge and set a new record. To keep track of the strain our bodies were about to endure, we started monitoring our cardiac vitals with our Polar Fitness Watches, as well as initiating the stopwatch function as we began our accent.

We started off at a cracking pace, adrenaline flowing abundantly. We were so pumped that we even contemplated breaking into a jog. However that idea was quickly alleviated from our heads as the accent increased in intensity! We hit the steep section and as we were winding our way up the seemingly increasingly steeper mountain will struggled not to fall into a state of despair watching the cable cart pass us by... pair of eyes looking in disbelief at those crazy guys! We didn't break out into a run at all, yet our heart rates were hitting 180 plus BPM!! That was as high as my more strenuous runs! Determined, we pushed on!!

Three quarters of the way up, sweat dripping, we stopped for a few minutes to take Polar Women's F4 Fitness Watch Product Pagenote of the incredible view, and to gaze at the journey we had thus far traveled. Everything looked so small. Our heart rates dropped back down to 150BPM, but were soon peaking again as we pushed onto the final stage. We were so hot we even ripped our tops off... this is in the Canadian Rockies I remind you... fancy having the need to take your top off because you are too hot!! But we were really pushing ourselves to the limit!! With a final gasp of air, we arrived to the summit, completely exhausted and still noticing our hearts working overtime. We clicked our stopwatches and congratulated each other on making the climb in just under an hour! What a buzz!!! I tell you having a Polar fitness watch helps you soak up the incredible accolades of the fitness challenges that await you!

Features of the Polar F4 Men's Fitness Watch:


* Polar OwnCal. Counts and displays calorie expenditure. The Polar OwnCal feature shows your energy expenditure during one exercise session as well as your accumulated kilocalories during several exercise sessions. You can set daily and weekly exercise goals in terms of calorie expenditure with the OwnCal feature. Because the OwnCal tracks both the energy expenditure during one exercise session and the accumulated kilocalories during a longer time e.g. one week, it helps in achieving both short term and long term goals.
* Wireless heart rate monitor
* Target Zones with visual and audible alarms
* Zone Pointer

Shower Radio Clock: Don't be a Wally with water!

The time between hopping out of bed into the cold morning air and jumping into the shower seems to depreciate rapidly as we approach those chilly winter months.

Aten Video Splitter: When one screen is just not enough...

Aten VS98A 8 Port Video Splitter Product PageSomeone the other day asked me if I had a video splitter for a computer. Hmmm... interesting. They wanted to display a picture on a number of computer monitors from one main PC. We weren't selling that product at the time, so I went and did some digging and came up with this really cool device: The Aten VS94A 4 Port Video Splitter.

Coming in 2, 4 and 8 port versions, the Aten Video Splitter will suit whatever your needs maybe. It's ideal for schooling and teaching environments where many screens are needed for demonstrating. It would also be useful in warehouse situations where you may want to display stock information etc, on multiple screens. The beauty of these splitters is that they amplify the video signal so that quality is not compromised. As a result you can have cabling up to about 210 feet!! Given the boost you are also able to view resolutions as high as 1792 x 1344 in 24 or 32bit true colour at a refresh rate of 60Hz!! And if you have a need for more ports you can get a second unit and link them together. This device is simple, yet offers a complete package for when one screen is just not enough!
