Photographer 3D prints VR headset for the OnePlus One

With Samsung jumping on the virtual reality (VR) niche with the Gear VR and Galaxy Note 4 combo, and with LG following close behind teaming up with Google Cardboard plus the LG G3 – not to mention the revival of the View-Master in modern VR style – it will not surprise us if the smaller manufacturers make efforts to jump on this market as well. But as OnePlus has yet to jump on the VR bandwagon, photographer Rene Meeh has taken it upon himself to make a VR headset for his OnePlus One, via 3D printing.

CAMpanion attaches GoPro cameras to most surfaces

If you own a GoPro camera, you know that they can record high quality video and still shots. Odds are the GoPro has much better video and photo taking capabilities than your Android smartphone or tablet. A new product has debuted called the CAMpanion that is designed to connect your GoPro to just about any surface.

Bluewire hands-free set records calls, finds lost keys too

Taking a call while driving is dangerous enough, which is why it’s banned in at least 14 states, plus D.C. and other US territories (and that’s what Bluetooth headsets are there for). But writing while driving—that ups the danger level quite significantly. Hopefully, when the Bluewire bluetooth device finally hits the market, these dangers could be a thing of the past. It might just be that good.

Samsung Gear VR now available at Best Buy, sort of

Good news: The Samsung Gear VR, that wonder toy that brings virtual reality to the masses (well, at least those who own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4), is now out to market and available at Best Buy. Bad news: the Gear VR "Innovator Edition" is just available via the online store, so buying this VR headset is still a very Internet-driven process. But at the very least, it is now within the grasp of the consumers out there and no longer just a pipe dream.

New Seek XR thermal camera can now detect heat at a far distance

The SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range became the launching pad of the new Seek XR thermal smartphone camera accessory. The company who made this was quick to followup the Seek Thermal which was launched only last September. The latest version of the add-on camera is ideal for those who like outdoor adventures and those who want to see heat in action. What's the point of this thermal camera? It helps spot animals, people, and more even when in total darkness with the heat the thermal camera detects.

D-Link puts out a micro-USB TV Tuner for Android

If you don’t live in Japan or in South Korea – where embedded TV services on smartphones is the norm – there is still not an easy way to get free TV reception on your Android device when you’re on-the-go. Apart from a few of the smaller Android device manufacturers in Southeast Asia, TV reception is still not a main feature of Android smartphones. For that purpose, D-Link has released the DWM-T100 micro-USB TV tuner.

HTC RE Camera review

A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories. Is the Re, which draws comparisons to devices like a GoPro, worthy of your attention, or is it another strange device we’ll soon forget? A review should answer that question nicely.

Mugen battery case to juice up Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, LG G3

Battery extenders and battery packs are already a necessity and not a luxury especially for people who are always on the go and heavy smartphone users. But sometimes, they can be so bulky and the connector wires can be a hassle and if you forget the wires, then they're practically useless. So some brilliant people invented the battery case and all has become right with the world (at least when it comes to your phone's battery life). Mugen has released three new products for Sony Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact and LG G3 users.
