I have a 1TB Seagate Portable Wireless Plus drive (about £120) that I use as both a backup of my NAS home server but also to stream TV and music to a variety of devices (tablets, Android TV stick, iphone) when travelling with the family. But this 32GB wifi flashdrive is a neat little alternative; lower capacity, yes, but very pocketable for travelling and a good deal cheaper at £50
Cool iphone projector for £116. Not sure how useful with only 15 lumen brightness. My Optoma PK301+ puts out 50 on battery or 100 on mains. Even 50 not much use for more than 30in in daylight (but can go up to 200in on 100 lumen in dark). Model is the Aiptek MobileCinema i15
Ripple Maker: And for the person who literally has everything, there’s the Ripple Maker. Using patented printing technology, the machine creates any image or text on top of the foam layer of coffee bevies. It takes just seconds, but those Instagram pictures you’ll be taking will last a lifetime. Get it HERE
Was reminded about my pico projector today. I have the Optoma PK301, an early version of this PK320. Don't use it much but love it: film nights on holidays abroad; slide show at a wedding & projecting Halloween animations. About the size of 2 iphones. It's battery doesn't last long but on mains is bright enough to project more than 100in in low light. The Optoma attracted me as I wanted to plug up an Android tablet via HDMI. Projector Planet have the best prices. This one is £249.
A few folk have been asking me about NAS drives recently. £120 for this 3TB Buffalo LS210D0301 looks decent. I have an earlier 1TB model which has done me proud as a central media server and backup for all my PCs at home. Of course for security, a 2 drive RAID version would make more sense; but I'm thinking a 1-drive NAS like this together with Backblaze's $5/mo off-site backup is even safer: www.backlaze.com
The Boostaroo is invaluable on a journey if you have more than one kid. Even though my kids all have tablets, invariably they want to watch something together and old school splitters seem to need constant jiggling with one child getting a quiet or feed to just one ear. And if you have 3 kids like me this is the only way to go. It works
