Cool Tech: Introducing Adonit Ink Stylus made for Windows

Cool Tech: Introducing Adonit Ink Stylus made for Windows

If you are a Windows user, this should be a cool tech just for you. Made for Windows, the fine folks from Adonit introduced recently the Adonit Ink Stylus. I liked the fact that you don't need an app nor a bluetooth connection, just power the stylus and you are ready to go! Navigate, tap or write as you will and with 80 hours of battery life and a full charge time of just 45 minutes by USB, travelling with the INK could not be more convenient. In their words Certified by Microsoft, the Adonit INK provides a turnkey stylus solution to any Windows device. Write and draw in exquisite detail with the INK’s 1mm fine point tip that is both replaceable and streamlined. Ideal for design, the tip is also pressure sensitive and emulates real handwriting. Lines appear thicker or thinner depending on how hard the stylus is pressed whilst drawing or writing, meaning that intricate pieces of art can be created as naturally as if using pen and paper. The INK has a pressure level of 4096 for Surface 5 PRO and 1024 for Surface 4 PRO. Rushed business meetings or frantic note taking at the back of a lecture theatre can be much neater with the handy palm rejection feature that allows users to write naturally and comfortably without worrying about extra marks on the page or PowerPoint. If a mistake in notes or doodles is made, the two shortcut buttons allow for easy right clicking and erasing. Never get caught out again by a low power stylus with the INK’s useful LED lights that indicate whether the device is turned on or off, the level of charge and when it is charging. The quick connection is designed to fit into users’ busy, fast moving daily lives to make sure notes, reminders or design inspiration are never missed. Users can enjoy being creative whilst on long plane, train or car journeys and then simply use the clip function to ensure the INK is with them at all times. Weighing just 12g and having a 9.2mm diameter, it is a very comfortable travel companion. Whether in a board room meeting, a lecture hall, noting down recipes in the kitchen or sketching new designs, the INK makes life more convenient. Using apps such as PowerPoint and OneNote, handwritten notes can be taken for business, studying or leisure. If looking for a more creative use, the INK works with apps including Sketchpad, Autodesk SketchBook and Fresh Paint allowing users to create sketches, paintings and illustrations on the move.

Samsung S8+ Review: 3 months as my Daily Driver

Samsung S8+ Review: 3 months as my Daily Driver

On Sunday, our friends from Samsung will be announcing at the Mobile World Congress; the newly anticipated Samsung S9. It is confirmed and we can't wait to know what will be new in terms of features considering the design won't change as much (referring to the leaks). This will be their answer to Apple's latest iPhone X. Before we head on with the novelty, let's back up a little and take a look at the previous model which is the Samsung S8+. I have been using it for the past couple months and wanted to share a review about what I loved and one thing that I particularly hate. Hopefully, this will give you some clarity on whatever or not you should upgrade to the S9 or even simply keep the S8. In some cases, upgrade to the S8 if you own an older phone. So here we go! My gear for the review Samsung S8+ Samsung S8+ shot At Six Hotel, Stockholm More Links Learn more about the Samsung S8+ Like Samsung on Facebook Follow Samsung on Instagram My First Impressions Two things you realize at the first glance, it's a beautiful phone. The industrial design of the S8 especially the Plus size, it's big but narrow which is pretty comfortable in your hands. The phone is big in how tall it is but you can still easily stretch your fingers across the length. I would give a personal edge to Samsung for always finding ways to keep innovating new products. I am sure it's never easy to create new things and re-evaluate your entire process along the way. Another thing, my review unit came in a "midnight black" colour but you noticed a shiny finish that reminds me of the Jet Black colour from the iPhone 7. It's really beautiful but very easy to scratch! If I may, if you want a really good protection and a slim case at the same time; I would definitely get a case from our friends at Moment. What's good with Moment is that you can attach a small lens and this will enhance your lens into taking really good photos. We made a review about them on ABDZ. One last thing from the design where I felt it was lacking but possibly made an improvement on the S9 (according to the leaks). The fingerprint sensor, it is bad and so poorly placed that you wouldn't want to use that particular feature. I am glad to see that Samsung might have heard our prayers and improved that issue with the S9. The Display I personally think the phone display represents about 80% of your phone usage. Well with the Samsung S8+ display, it's such a beauty. The S8+ comes with a 6.2-inch screen size . It's huge! It’s an AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2960 x 1440px, offering a better contrast and a brighter picture. With an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, the screen is taller and has a narrower feel. The display is just perfect to surf the web and especially watching videos like on YouTube. At a very good deal, I would personally buy the S8+ just for the display alone or as a complete package phone. You already have what is the best display on the market and it is well-suited for your day-to-day life. Complete Package The S8+ is the best complete package phone on the market at the moment. It's integrated with Snapdragon 835 which makes the phone super fast for anything. You can easily multi-task and have a ton of apps open at the same time. My review unit had 64GB storage and you can also slide in microSD card for extra storage. There are also features that comes in handy and standard with Samsung. We have a waterproof phone at IP68, wireless charging, fast charging, and a 3500mAh battery. It's overall quite complete and we mostly don't use all these rocking features but it's there if you ever need them. It's running Android Nougat 7.0 mixed with Samsung software, the overall experience comes with a cute UI and fun transitions to simply enhance your daily life with the phone. Samsung S8+ Gallery   Pros Stunning and sleek design design Incredible Display Awesome Phone Specs Software Experience Cons Fingerprint Sensor Placement The Camera What is Bixby One thing though... One thing I have neglected to mention during this entire review and I wanted to keep it at the end because there is a possible nice ending. It's the camera, it's an overall good experience but not great at the same time. Some will say that is quite enough for them but for me, the camera represents 80% of my phone usage. If the camera doesn't perform well, we have a problem. It's probably because I am coming from being the Google Pixel user for the last year and it's the best image processor on any phone. The problem with the S8+ is not the camera but the image processor software. It's not something I can depend on which is not amazing considering that the camera is the one that you always have with you. But we have something to redeem ourselves. This Sunday, Samsung will announce the S9 and it comes with the tagline: "Camera Reimagined". It's a pretty bold statement, let's find out soon enough. You haven’t seen anything yet. At #Unpacked, we’re shining a new light on the world as you know it. A post shared by Samsung Mobile (@samsungmobile) on Feb 21, 2018 at 4:54am PST More Links Learn more about the Samsung S8+

Ministry of Supply: The First and Next Intelligent Heated Jacket

Ministry of Supply: The First and Next Intelligent Heated Jacket

We love Industrial Design on ABDZ especially when it's related to a product. We are sharing a product today that is rocking hard on Kickstarter and it's called the by Ministry of Supply. What is it? How about a functional, great-looking, everything-proof, voice-controlled jacket that learns and automatically heats to your optimal temperature. That would be great right? I just can't think enough of wearing this jacket on a very cold day in Canada when it's around -20C/-4F. It's definitely an interesting product and you should check them out their project on Kickstarter. In their words We launched our company just 5 years ago right here on Kickstarter. Since the beginning, we've taken a scientific approach to design, so we can invent clothing that’s both comfortable and makes you look great. Today we're taking that approach to the next level, with the Mercury Intelligent Heated Jacket — outerwear that's voice controlled, built for anything, automatically heats to the right temperature, and learns your behavior to get better over time. More Links Support them on Kickstarter Some Features Voice-controlled Intelligent Heat Durable and everything-proof Beautiful & funtional Ready to go Cozy heat on demand At the core of Mercury are three carbon fiber heating elements that heat all at once, strategically placed to disappear into the jacket. At just 100g, flexible, and 1mm thin (that's thinner than a dime), you’ll barely notice the heaters. These heaters can deliver 10 watts of heating power nearly instantaneously, reaching up to 135ºF/57ºC, the same temperature as a cup of coffee. Mercury creates a microclimate for your body using real-time reactive and proactive heating to constantly adapt heat and optimize your body temperature. Using the accelerometer, body temperature, and outside temperature, Mercury triangulates the perfect amount of heat, so you don't have to worry about overheating. Because of the Mercury's machine learning capability, the more feedback you give it, the better it gets and automatically learns your preferences. And more...
