Can’t always make it to the front door in a hurry? Not always home but want to know what’s going on,
see who might’ve dropped by, or know that your courier parcel has arrived?
Meet Ring, a video doorbell that lets you to stay connected to your home – even when you’re not
there, or are too busy to get there.
This revolutionary internet-connected doorbell screens a live audio and video stream of your home’s
front doorstep, directly to any smartphone or tablet. Ring sends instant alerts via the free Ring app (iOS®
and Android) when the doorbell is rung, or if motion is detected. You can see and speak with people at
your house from anywhere (even overseas) or watch recorded footage on your own smart device.
Especially perfect for those who work at home and don’t want to get distracted but want to know
what’s happening and home-owners or security-conscious Kiwis that want to feel safe knowing exactly
what’s going on at their front doorstep. If you’re a techie wanting a new gadget to play with, the Ring
will be sure to deliver your fix too!
The Ring Video Doorbell comes in four faceplate finishes that will complement any home décor. It
can be installed in minutes with no professional help or tools required. Operating on dual power, Ring
connects to existing doorbell wiring or runs off the built-in battery for total convenience. All its data is
recorded to a Cloud service too, so you won’t miss a beat.
At $399.95 per unit, Ring is available from Harvey Norman and Placemakers nationwide, as well as
online with Noel Leeming.
Beyond the Surface
Believe it or not, the Surface Book is the first laptop ever made by Microsoft.
They may have been in the software business for 40 years, but hardware, such
as their Surface Pro tablets, are a relatively new endeavour.
Designed with the quality and workmanship that have characterized Surface
from the beginning, Surface Book is engineered to be the ultimate laptop. Its
features read like a must-have list of technical specs; 6th Generation Intel Core i5
and Core i7 processors; up to 1 TB of storage; Intel HD graphics, optional discrete
NVIDIA GeForce graphics; an integrated backlit keyboard; responsive glass trackpad
and a detachable screen-turned-tablet featuring a 13.5-inch PixelSense Display.
Users can quickly and easily detach the screen to use it like a clipboard, and
take advantage of its advanced touch and precise inking experience, or rotate
and reattach to continue using the hardware-accelerated graphics.
Plus, the updated Surface pen offers the ultimate modern writing experience,
now with 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity and reduced latency. When
attached to the base, Surface Book enables quiet typing and more words per
minute with a keyboard built for comfort, accuracy and efficiency.
Initially expected to cost upwards of $2,300, Surface Book is a high-performance
laptop with exceptional power and unprecedented versatility that flexes to meet
the demands of your work — from the shop floor to the board room.
The future of personal transportation is now available
in New Zealand thanks to the team at Glideboards.co .
Glideboards are the revolutionary self-balancing boards
that have swept the globe and are now available across
Australia and New Zealand. With recent endorsements
from West Indies cricket star Chris Gayle and pop star Justin
Bieber, Glideboards are shaping up to be the must-have
gadget for 2016.
Every Glideboard comes fully equipped with German
precision engineered gyroscopic technology, and powerful
batteries that allow you to travel up to 10 km/hr for
25km. The alloy wheels and protective casing are rain and
dust proof, and the high quality solid tyres ensure each
Glideboard is both durable and safe.
The pressure sensors on each non-slip footpad
will independently adjust the speed based on weight
distribution of each foot, allowing for easy and precise
control, at least after a bit of initial practice.
Glideboards are priced from $749 and are available for
purchase in a range of colours from www.glideboards.co
