PenPower WorldPenScan X – Pen scanner & translator Review

 

WorldPenScan X is a digital pen that scans, converts, and translate documents into digital form.  The device is perfect for world travelers that need to quickly translate a document on the fly to their Tablet or mobile phone.  The product initially launched on Kickstarter and now is available through retailers like Amazon.com.

WorldPenScan X is a small digital pen in white made of mostly plastic construction.  The digital pen scanner has a power button, function key and scan tip with button and wheel.  The end of the digital pen has a USB cable to charge the device.  The function light changes colors to notify you that the products is working and doing it’s function.  The WorldPenScan X works with iOS, Android, Mac and Windows.  The
The WorldPenScan X was tested with an iPad and without much effort I was up and running.  I downloaded the app using the Apple Store which is a free download.  Once I downloaded the app I connected the device by powering on the device and it connected automatically using Bluetooth.

The app supports translation of  Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese (Hong
Kong), English, Japanese, Korean, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese, among several other languages.  In addition the software recognize barcodes and bank fonts such as OCR-A, OCR-B, MICR on PCs.

Since I am Korean I thought I translate Korean words to English.  I simply pressed on the text on a flat surface and hit the function key and then when finish scanning I hit the function key again.  The app would then display the Korean text and then translate it to English.  The translation is not perfect but similar to Google Translate.  Easier languages like Spanish would more than likely result in almost perfect translations.

Overall the WorldPenScan X works exactly as described.  I like how it translate foreign language with ease.  I found the post office won’t accept addresses in foreign languages so I use the WorldPenScan X to translate Korean addresses to English.

InnoDevice InnoHUG headphones review



InnoDevice is a new startup company out of South Korea making waves with its unique design first products. The company has release three products at launch and the InnoHUG could be the most useful. InnoHUG is a behind-the-neck headphone that offers great sound quality and interchangeable ear muffs. The headphones comes with leatherette ear muffs and can be swapped out with fuzzy ear muffs.










InnoHug comes with 40 mm drivers that deliver big sound and clarity. The big feature on these headphones is that they double as ear muffs that are perfect for the winter months. You simply remove the leatherette pads and replace them with the fuzzy ear muffs. The InnoHug is a bit more reserved that the InnoWave that has a bit more splashy design. The InnoHug is low key, but far from boring. They are a stylish behind-the-neck headphones perfect for streetwear.




InnoHug is a cool product for sure and one that I plan to wear when it gets cold in Michigan with the fuzzy ear muffs. The InnoHug headphones offer great sound and performance at a good price. The InnoHug can keep your ears warm and toasty during the winter months and then swap out the leatherette pads for the other seasons.

Infosonics verykool S5015 Spark II (Unlocked) Review



The verykool Spark II is the latest entry in budget smartphones that compete with the Moto G phone. Having reviewed the previous 3G Spark and flagship Quantum from verykool, I was very looking forward to checking out another quality smartphone. The phone comes unlocked so you can use any prepaid or postpaid GSM carrier like T-Mobile, AT&T or MetroPCS.




The verykool S5015 features 5.0″ IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen, 1.3GHz Quad-Core CPU, Android 4.4 KitKat, 8MP rear camera, and 5MP front camera. The smartphone features fast 4G HSPA+ (21 Mbps DL, 5.76 Mbps UL). Also, included is a nice Faux Leather SmartJacket that comes with its own back piece that integrates with the smartphone. The blue back plate is removable and you can decide to add the SmartJacket for extra protection. The phone features ultra-slim 8mm bezel with “one glass solution” and a fully laminated screen.











The battery life of the verykool Spark II is up to 10 hours talk time/Up to 13 days standby time from the 2100 mAh Li-ion battery. Thanks to it’s quad core processor everything on the Smartphone feels snappy from browsing the web to playing games. The Spark II comes with almost stock version of Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat and everything works as expected. The sound quality on the phone is above-average and the 5 inch display is just the perfect size for a smartphone. The Spark II stand out feature is the 5MP front facing camera with flash that produces wonderful selfies. I believe this will be a big selling point with the teens. The verykool Spark II comes with 8GB of internal space with 5.74GB available to the user. The cool thing is that you can add up to 64gb of storage through microSD which most phones don’t have.


The Spark II is the perfect budget smartphone for those that want a phone that is unlocked, quite peppy and makes great selfies. The verykool Spark II is for those that wants a trendy phone that not everyone else has. I recommend anyone that is looking for an unlocked smartphone for under $180 to go and check out the verykool Spark II and you won’t be disappointed.

InnoDevice’s InnoWave Headphones Review





The latest smartphones have curved glass and these new headphones have a curved wave shaped headphone band that follows the trends. The Innowave is designed with fashion in mind and come in flashy colors.




The InnoWave has an innovative wavy band shape that looks different and decreases force to your head. The headphones are super comfortable and stylish. The InnoWave were designed by award-winning designer YoungSe Kim. The InnoWave comes in olive, orange, beige and purple. The InnoWave features 40mm dynamic drivers and a flat cable that does not tangle. The headphones retail for $129.95 on the site.







I tested out the InnoWave headphones with a wide variety of music genres from classical, pop, rock and R&B. The headphones work great with my Nexus phone, iPad tablet and iPad Mini. The headphones are marketed to the same trendy people that wear Beats by Dre. The headphones provide ample bass and crystal clear sound driven by the 40mm driver. The headphone also include a carrying pouch for easy travel.



The InnoWave is a headphone with loads of style for street wear. The headphones also provide great quality audio for your Smartphone. The InnoDevice’s InnoWave Headphone comes in bright colors that will appeal to the younger trendy crowd. The cool factor on InnoWave is high and audio very good making it a must buy.

Loft of Cambie WOLYT Sleeve Classic Charcoal/Brown Review



Considering smartphones are getting larger, I need a wallet that is small and minimalist. The WOLYT Sleeve Classic is the ultimate minimalist wallet for versatile functionality. The wallet was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2014 and now is available to purchase.


The Loft of Cambie WOLYT Sleeve Classic is made with genuine leather, high denier ballistic nylon and cotton fabrics. The construction is solidly built and the design is modern. The wallet is lightweight and super slim for easy carry. I like that the wallet is simple as possible while adding essential features.




The WOLYT Sleeve can hold seven credit cards/ID card, five banknotes and a key. The wallet is slim enough to carry with your smartphone in the same pocket. The quick draw pull tab for easy access to your cards is genius. I am able to pull out my ID card in a second with the quick draw pull tab.


The Loft of Cambie WOLYT Sleeve Classic is the best minimalist wallet I have reviewed. It blends style, function and craftsmanship to combine for the best every day carry wallet you will ever own. I can’t go back to the bulky wallet again after owning the WOLYT Sleeve wallet.

RND Ripple Bluetooth Speaker Review





The RND Ripple Bluetooth Speaker is a nice Bluetooth speaker for your mobile device or tablet. I found it great to connect to my iPad and blast iTunes radio or my personal music collection. The speaker is rather small for easy portability. The wireless speaker has two speakers, a rear sub-woofer and microphone.




The build quality is rather nice with glossy top, speaker grill taken up the entire front of the speaker, and rubberized plastic around the sides and bottom. The speakers has touchscreen controls on the top of the speaker. The rechargeable battery last for about 8-10 hours of continuous play. The speaker pairs with Bluetooth to your mobile device and tablet. Ripple has a microphone which enables the speaker to be used for conference calls.





The Ripple speaker performed very well for such a small speaker. I found the sound quality to be very good and clear. The Bluetooth speaker has a on/off switch to conserve battery life. It also has an axillary port to connect to say a laptop.



The RND Ripple Bluetooth Speaker is good value speaker for only $35 shipped. At that price you are not going to find a better small Bluetooth Speaker with crystal clear sound. The speaker is perfect to take with you everywhere you go.
