By - April 20, 2015 16 Pictures
Sena's 10C is the first Bluetooth headset to hit the market with a built-in action camera. It takes the intercom and phone integration features of the SMH-10, and mashes them together with the video capabilities of the Sena Prism we reviewed last week, while adding the convenience of dashcam-style video tagging, for a total price of US$349. And after just a few days' use, we're happy to pronounce it the best gadget in the Sena range – one of those rare moments when you find yourself thinking "how come nobody ever thought of this before?"

Review: Sena Prism Bluetooth motorcycle action camera

By - April 16, 2015 21 Pictures
Sena's excellent 20S Bluetooth headset is my daily driver these days, and now there's an action camera to go with it. The Prism is a 1080p/30 fps camera designed specifically for motorcycle use, and it links up with the 20S to take advantage of the headset's audio capabilities. While it's not yet perfect, it delivers good quality vision, outstanding audio and a motorcycle-focused mount kit that deserves a lot of praise. Read More

Mobile phones are great, but they're not ideal for every communications needs. When you're skiing down a mountain, the last thing you want to do is carve to a stop, dig around your triple-layer winterwear for your phone, and answer just to hear your buddy tell you he's waiting in the lodge – which is where you were skiing down to to meet him. The AWIRE wearable two-way radio promises to deliver that type of conversation in mere seconds so you can get on with your life. It also pairs with your smartphone to route calls and music directly to your ears. Read More

Zivix adds hexaphonic pickup and Bluetooth to pocket string picker

By - March 31, 2015 5 Pictures
There are many iOS apps that offer onscreen versions of musical instruments and, though a convenient way to practice chord positions or to quickly jot down a song idea, they can be a pretty poor substitute for the real thing. In 2013, Zivix launched a successful crowdfunding campaign to bring a backpack-friendly MIDI guitar designed for the mobile musician called the JamStik to production. Now the company is back with an improved mini guitar that boasts better picking detection and processing speed, and uses Bluetooth LE instead of Wi-Fi to keep surfing channels open while playing.
