AIbird Uoplay 3 Axis Smartphone Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer Unboxing

Purchasing a Steadicam is something not a lot of people would ever have expected to have been able to do, nor would many see it as a sensible purchase, however after playing with the AiBird Uoplay Gimbal I am excited to say this is one of the best peripherals you can pick up for a smartphone.

This isn’t a review, yet. We will be coming to that in the coming weeks. My initial reaction is that I am going to love this accessory and take it everywhere with me, looking for every opportunity. Even between filming the tiny footage and editing it together into the unboxing video I have an extra 30 minutes to pick through for the review, by the time I come to write the full review I’ll probably have a few hours of material.

So what is it? The Aibird UoPlay is a stick for your phone that uses a 3 axis, motorised support to allow for smooth movement as you move. Much like a Steadicam would achieve in the movie industry, or a drone might produce.

Annoyingly the best location to purchase the Aibird Uoplay is on Ebay UK.

The official website for the AiBird Uoplay Gimbal can be found here.

Olixar Ultimate Mains Universal Fast Charger Unboxing and test

vlcsnap-00002A fast charger is an appealing idea, sucking more power out of the wall to get you closer to 100% quicker. It also seems to be the best temporary solution to the battery woes we are all suffering from. Devices have batteries relative to their size and they are unlikely to last a full day if you use them heavily.
Having a faster charger means you can get the battery to a higher percentage as folks can get a little anxious when their battery hits 30% or less in the afternoon.

Olixar have had a go at and produced a rather bulbous yet simple offering. Available from Mobilefun for £19.99 this universal fast charger make some bold claims, up to 60% in 30 minutes and 75% faster than conventional charging methods.

So we put it to the test on a Nexus 6p…

You can purchase the Olixar Ultimate Mains Universal Fast Charger & Travel Adapters here for £19.99.

Have you ever walked out of the shopping centre/Mall and thought to yourself, after a long period in the isles fighting for your groceries, “where the hell did I park?” Or perhaps you need to show some one where your car is without having to leave a queue or coffee shop?

The Nonda Zus plugs into your cigarette lighter and acts as a tracking device for an app on your phone to locate your car and allow you to share that location with someone of your choosing.

Also thrown in is the ability to charge two USB connectible devices, at a faster rate that normal. And the Zus has been designed to meet US Military MIL-STD-810G High Temperature Standard. The Zus can handle temperatures as high as 100ºC.

Homido Virtual Reality Headset review

Homido Virtual reality headset

Get the virtual reality party started…

You will have heard of the virtual reality wave that is causing quite a stir with high end devices with high prices preparing to launch during 2016; Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Playstation VR to name but a few, all these devices come at a costly price. Google cardboard is a cheap alternative step into the VR world although it does have its limitations.

With thanks, the people at mobilefun.co.uk have sent us the Homido Virtual reality headset for smartphones. Homido have produced a quite robust well designed headset to let you enter the world of VR with your smartphone. Out of the box you will notice straight away the adjustable strap attached to the headset no more holding your headset to your eyes like you would have done with Google cardboard. Homido recommend downloading their own app ‘Homido Centre’ for you to get the best experience possible.

sdr

The headset is completely adjustable for you needs, the head strap allows you to make sure the headset is comfortably tight. There are a number of lenses included to help the best possible viewing – Short cone – short sighted people, Medium cone – people with normal vision, Long cone – long sighted people. There is a slot to slide your phone into, currently I am using the Honor 7 with 5.2 inch screen which is about the right size of screen to insert, any larger than 5.7 inches may find it difficult for you to get the full benefit of the headset.

Once you have your app ready and the phone inserted all you need to done then is use the adjustable buttons on the side to move the screen closer or further away from your eyes until the screen you are looking at inside the headset is at the right distance, and breathe, be prepared to journey into the world of VR.

The Headset it made of hard plastic and feels solid, however I would be afraid that if dropped or accidentally damaged its lifespan could be short. There is a nice soft sponge cushioning your face from the hard plastic body of the headset which is a bonus. Priced at £47.99 this headset is cheaper than that of the Samsung headset at £89.99 but does cheaper mean better?

I found through usage of the headset that the lenses do get dirty, hence the lens cleaner cloth included in the box. I had also experienced the lenses steaming up a few times although I was getting the cold at that time. There is currently a wide range of virtual reality 360 degree videos available on Youtube accessible through the Google cardboard app, also the Homido app lets you watch 360 videos as well as download some virtual reality games. Unfortunately I did not have a Bluetooth control to connect to my phone I did find the Homido space abduction app really enjoyable. When sitting at my table I was told by the app installed to look at the box of the Homido headset, this enabled Augmented Reality. The app was using my camera enabling me to view the room around me i focused on the Homido box and boom, before me appeared a farm landscape with cows.

The box turned into a video displaying information about the Homido headset and then the aliens began to invade and started to try and abduct the cows. By looking at the alien spaceships it unleashed a fury of gunshots to bring down the alien crafts. Such a simple game yet really effective.

The Homido virtual reality was my first time using a VR headset. I would definitely recommend purchasing a headset for the novelty and for the kid in me that always dreamed of a time when virtual reality would be a reality. At £47.99 this is significantly more expensive than the cheaper alternatives however you do have a more superior robust headset. Why Buy?
