Level 16

Just a fun thread - like show and tell




Maybe I should start with my new ... toothbrush!  




Might sound boring - but she's a beauty - and it's a $ 350 - 400 toothbrush that connects to your phone using Bluetooth and more (it's got a small oled screen - much like the Rift CV1, lol):



Maybe a slightly naughty picture, but Dr. Freud once said: "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!" 😉


As we grow older, there're important reasons to invest in very clean teeth - like shown here: 



In short, some bacteria associated with gum disease (periodontal disease) have been found in the brains of Alzheimer patients, thus the bacteria may have gained access to the brain by entering the body through the gums. And these bacteria may initiate Alzheimers disease. So maybe a good thing not to go too cheap on the toothbrush 😎


More info about the world's best and most advanced toothbrush here:


I've been using the toothbrush a few days now, it's totally amazing - feels like you've just came home from the dentist each time after brushing your teeth 😎

Best deal in years, lol - but found a totally new pair (mint-in-a-box) of my favorite headphones - even *much* better than the Index speakers - these headphones go down to 12 Hz and have 50 mm drivers (Index speakers can't go below 40 Hz and use 37.5 mm drivers): 




These are now collector's item - originally the cost over here was $1200 - 1500, but I think you could get them in the US for about $800. Still these are my favorite headphones for (surround) movies. The do light up like a Christmas tree, lol





Even if they do not support Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos is uncompressed, and Dolby Atmos sounds awesome in these headphones.


This was not an easy purchase. The seller in Nebraska allowed me to participate in his auction, and I won them on Ebay - but for a much lower price than I and probably the seller anticipated. Even used ones sell for at much higher price. And then the seller stopped responding and didn't add my country to the list of available destinations. Thus I could not pay - and lost the ability to give negative feedback. 

What to do now? It's not uncommon for sellers not to ship if they got a too low price. Ebay representatives couldn't help. Ended up contacting my aunt in Chicago and she didn't mind to receive the package and forward it to me. Thus added her address to my Ebay account, and then I could pay for the headphones - and suddenly the seller responded, lol. Did cost another $100 for the shipping - and another $100 for chocolates to my aunt, but totally worth it. 


In short they have arrived and are as awesome as I hoped for. And completely new:

Actually this was just for backup - I already own one pair, but it's getting worn:

I got a couple of iBeacons for $4us each from Aliexpress.


They are bluetooth transmitters used for approximate indoor tracking. Mobile apps can search for them and read the signal strength to estimate distance. I've got some ideas for them at work. If I can get the proof of concept working, I'll grab another 20 or so (but might be able to get my work to pay for them).


My Wooting Two Lekker Edition has shipped! I ordered it last year. It's an analog keyboard. Every single key can be read as an analog value instead of a simple pressed/not pressed value. So I can map WASD to a virtual analog thumbstick for analog movement in games.

It's Rapid Trigger mode lets you double tap a key without moving all the way up past the actuation point, instead it tracks movement direction reversal.


I don't know how useful an analog keyboard will be, I just want one because almost nobody has one, and I love odd input devices. Plus it's a small team trying something different, I respect that.


The limited run (only about 1000 exist) Lekker Edition:


(The new Wooting Two HE is basically the same thing, but isn't out yet. The Lekker was a limited special edition of their new switch tech)


I ordered a ProLab Mouse


Seems like a handy thing when I'm teaching a class on a projector.
