The Entrain App Prevents Jet Lag

Entrain-app-00

For frequent travelers by plane, jet lag can start becoming an issue after years of constantly sitting on the damn plane for hours upon hours. Well, a mathematician might have found the solution to the problem (like they should do right?) with his newly developed app called Entrain. It’s our understanding that “jet lag is the result of a disrupted circadian clock.” When the app steps in, it simulates your circadian clock on the phone and makes mathematically optimal lighting recommendations to help you adjust as fast as possible to new timezones and schedules. If you’re thinking it’s all bullshit, think again, because the recommendations (which tell you when to seek light and/or dark) are based on new research in the journal PLoS Computational Biology, so beat that!

Gramofon is a Modern Jukebox

gramofon-00

Described as a modernized jukebox, Gramofon is just that. Connect it to the sound system or speakers of your choice by utilizing WiFi or ethernet, not Bluetooth. You might be thinking, “I’ll just get Apple’s AirPlay,” that’s fine and all, but the fun stops at Apple. You’ll be able to stream your favorite playlists from Spotify or listen to the free radio service called WahWah to get your music fix. Multiple people can also connect and control the music from an Android or iOS phone. However, it doesn’t stop there. Since Gramafon is developed by the same team behind Fon (the worlds largest WiFi network) they also doubled it as a WiFi hotspot, allowing you to get free WiFi in millions of places around the world – you don’t even need a password to connect, simply log on with your Facebook account. Look for Fon to add compatibility with Grooveshark, SoundCloud, rdio, Google Play and several other services. Once that happens, you won’t even look at anything else.

Tubecore Duo is Exceptionally Beautiful

tubecore-duo-00

While we’ve roamed around the net searching for the best Bluetooth speakers, I think we just found that the Tubecore DUO trumps them all and jumps to the top of our list. Attracting a vintage style with modern design, it can be said that the DUO is the only tube-powered Bluetooth speaker in the industry. It packs a big punch with vacuum tube pre-amps, a 100 watt solid state main amp and mono block 30 watt sub amp, twin 4″ composite cone 50w reference drivers, and a 3″ composite 30w long-throw subwoofer. All of this is packed in a hand built hardwood cabinet with an aircraft aluminum back panel customized for heat sink. Bluetooth and WiFi streaming capabilities make it that much more intriguing, and the embedded computer support of Raspberry Pi enables an entire world of multimedia. Pretty much, we guarantee you’ll be happy with what you get.
