The Toys Of Summer

2006 / August 2006

Remote Play’s TagAlert 200

And now, for another idea from the why-didn’t-we-think-of-that corner: Remote Play’s TagAlert. Just attach the tag to any worldly possession you’d like to hang onto — mobile phone, PDA, laptop or luggage. Then place the monitor in your pocket or on your keychain. The patented system uses wireless technology to sound an alert when you exceed the preset range (from 30 to 100 feet — you set the distance). Each tag has a unique ID, so you can use multiple tags within the same area with a single monitor. Airport lost-and-found departments may never be the same again. $49.95. (www.remoteplay.com)

Sony DSLR-A100 Camera

The future-focused folks at Sony have taken the digital single lens reflex (D-SLR) camera market by storm this summer with the debut of D-SLR-A100.With its 10.2-megapixel APS CCD image sensor, the camera provides the highest resolution in its class. Sony’s new Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) technology analyzes the image data and instantly determines the best exposure and color tonality of an image before JPEG compression — the first hardware-based DRO solution. The camera’s Bionz image processing engine also offers high-speed shooting at up to three frames per second continuously as well as Super SteadyShot image stabilization, a proprietary technology that shifts the image sensor to compensate for camera movement. If you can’t take a gorgeous shot with this camera, it might be time to look into a new hobby. $900. (Range of lens sold separately.) (www.SonyStyle.com)

BlueAnt X3 Micro Bluetooth Headset

BlueAnt Wireless, Australia’s largest supplier of Bluetooth devices, recently stormed U.S. shores with the introduction of the BlueAnt X3 Micro, one of the world’s smallest Bluetooth headsets. The length of a matchstick and weighing in at less than half an ounce, it’s the only Bluetooth headset on the market that lets you switch between devices on the fly — just a press of a button and you can switch seamlessly between your mobile phone, computer and PDA. It’s sleek (winner of the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show Innovation Award for “Best in Design”), provides up to seven hours of talk time and 180 hours of standby time, and comes with three charging options: an in-car charger, a wall charger and a USB port into a PC or Mac. Now that calls for another shrimp on the barbie! $69.99. (www.myblueant.com)

ClearOne Chat 50 Global Traveler

This new personal speakerphone from ClearOne connects to a variety of devices — laptops or PCs, mobile phones, desktop video conferencing devices — and provides unmatched full-duplex capability, so users can speak and listen simultaneously without audio cutting in and out. You can even connect it to your iPod for full-band audio playback. And at just a bit larger than a deck of cards, it’s fully portable — you can even schedule calls from the beach while soaking up the last few days (and rays) of summer. $209.99. (www.clearone.com)
