Thanks to our sponsor, Gadget Flow. A product discovery platform that helps you save and buy awesome products with 12 new additions every day.
Marshall Monitor Bluetooth Headphones
Boost your favorite audio with the all-new Marshall Monitor Bluetooth Headphones. Through the use of Bluetooth aptX technology, you get ultra-smooth, high-res audio right to your ears. Covering your ears are two luxuriously comfortable over-ear cups. The Monitor Headphones also feature a foldable design with heavy-duty cast metal hinges. (at The Gadget Flow)
Western Digital Portable SSD
Enter the new My Passport SSD. Part of its popular My Passport lineup, the new SSD looks similar to Western Digital’s other My Passport hard drives that recently got a new look. However, since this is an SSD, it’s shrunk down and offers data transfer speeds of up to 515 MB/s. The My Passport SSD is more in touch with the times as well since it doesn’t have the USB 3.0 Micro USB-B port like its siblings. It comes with a USB Type-C port and does ship with a USB Type-A adapter for those who don’t have a device with a USB Type-C port. (at Ubergizmo)
Metis Storage Desk
Nothing slows your work roll like a cluttered desk and with most of them seeming to have a real lack of storage, what do you do? The only real solution is to nail down your organization game and with a desk like this, it’s really easy to accomplish. Designed by Gonçalo Campos for Wewood, Metis is a solid wood desk that may be compact, but it’s outfitted with all kinds of compartments and sections you can use to stow your gear. (at Design Milk)
Duo AI Mirror
It looks like any other mirror, and at 1.9mm thin, you'd be hard-pressed to guess otherwise. But the Duo AI Mirror is in fact a full-fledged computer hidden in plain sight. Its 27-inch HD multi-touch display hides until awoken, and can be configured to handle a variety of tasks, from showing the weather and news to letting you control your thermostat and lights. The "AI" comes into play in the form of Albert, the Duo's voice-powered assistant, who lets you handle a variety of tasks without needing to dirty the screen. (at Uncrate)
ASUS All-in-One Zen AiO ZN270IE
Just like the premium models introduced in January, the ASUS Zen AiO ZN270IE is based on Intel’s Core i7-T processors. However, similarities with the Zen AiO Pro Z240IE seem to end here. The Zen AiO ZN270IE comes with NVIDIA’s low-end GeForce 940MX GPU with 2 GB of DRAM (cheap versions of the ZN270IE use Intel’s iGPU, but this particular dGPU is barely faster than modern iGPUs), from 4 to 16 GB of DDR4 memory, up to a 512 GB SSD as well as 1 or 2 TB HDD storage, 802.11ac, a GbE controller and so on.
