In Review: Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro

A little bit ago, we brought you word of some rather exciting-sounding new earbuds from Anker. I’ve become a big fan of their over-ear ANC headphones (both the Q20 and the Q30), but I’ve had mixed success with how well ANC works in earbuds. So, of course we got a sample in, and I spent some time with it over the past few weeks to get a feel for the earbuds.

Introducing the Polar Verity Sense

When it comes to tracking your fitness, there’s no doubt that a heart rate monitor has become an important piece of technology. There are plenty of watches that now offer this sensor (such as my trusty Polar Vantage M), but if you wanted to add a HR sensor to your existing kit, you were limited to a chest strap – that is, until the Polar Verity Sense was released last month.

Now Funding: Roll & Play Character Creator

Back in June, we brought you word of the first product from the crew at Roll and Play that aimed to help you prepare your campaign – or even make some on-the-fly decisions when your players derail things. Now, if you’re looking for some helping creating your NPCs – or even player characters – they’re back with the Roll & Play Character Creator.

Now Funding: Tiny Epic Dungeons

Back in the days where we actually used to go into the office, a group of us at work had the habit of playing games over lunch. This constrained things to stuff that could be played more quickly, and introduced a number of interesting ones. One that we enjoyed quite a bit was Tiny Epic Galaxies by Gamelyn Games. They’ve actually got quite a few “Tiny Epic” games, and one of the latest is on Kickstarter now – Tiny Epic Dungeons.

Afternoon Beer Break: Stone Delicious IPA

In our last Afternoon Beer Break, we featured a gluten-reduced offering from Stone Brewing that was very much in the “sessionable” category with it’s lower ABV (and lower carbs and calories, to boot). If you’re interested in the gluten reduction, but want something with a bit more “oomph”, then perhaps the Stone Delicious IPA is the one for you.

Rock down to Electric Avenue with the Pickman XR

At this point, electric vehicles are becoming more and more commonplace. That said, they tend to focus more on moving people – what if you need to move cargo? Electric trucks aren’t nearly as common, but that’s what the folks at Pickman have been creating. If you need to cross some trails and rocks to get to Electric Avenue? Then the recently-announced Pickman XR is what you’re looking for.

Now Funding: Storm 2 Power Bank

Lately, it seems that you have no end of choice when it comes to battery packs to keep your stuff juiced up while on the go, or in the midst of an emergency. While choice is great, it can be a bit tricky to sort through it all and find one that meets your needs, and fits the look you go for in your gadgets. A rather unique one just hit Kickstarter, in the form of the Storm 2 Power Bank.

The Oaxis myFirst Sketch Book keeps those doodles organized

As any parent (or relative) of a child knows, the amount of artwork that they can produce is prodigious. While notebooks get the job done, then you’ve got a pile of paper. Reusable scribble pads, like Boogie Boards, help, but you can’t save the pictures (at least the version we had). The Oaxis myFirst Sketch Book looks to be a solid way to let the creativity flow.

Storytellers on Tour: How LJ and Rom Saved Heavy Metal

I, for one, am all for digging into a meaty, hefty tome of, say, epic fantasy or wide-ranging space opera. At least, I was able to easily consume those back in the days where I commuted by train. Nowadays, while I still try to get into those doorstoppers, it takes a lot longer. So, that’s where things that I consider the “pulp paperback” stories come into play – and that’s where I classify How LJ and Rom Saved Heavy Metal by S.D. McKinley.
