From the July 2022 issue of E&T: give your security, gaming, DJing and more a high-tech boost.
Arlo Go 2
Secure anything, anywhere. This weatherproof security camera can livestream 1080p HD video via Wi-Fi and 4G SIM. The battery lasts months, perfect for a caravan, garage or allotment shed as well as home. You get alerts and can even trigger a siren or spotlight. The price includes a two-year Cloud storage plan.
New from the makers of smart Rubik’s cube GoCube, which we tested in June 2020, these six smart dice contain 3D sensors that connect wirelessly to a clever app full of games. Not just dice games like Yatzy (sic) and Pig but boardgames, maths and trivia games. It’s small, perfect for holidays, and a 13-second charge in the carry case is enough for two hours of gameplay.
The world’s first palm-sized robot dog moves uncannily like a mini Boston Dynamics robot. Assemble (no screwdriver required) then control via app, or program its customised Arduino board using an open-sourced quadruped robot platform. You can even add smart sensors or mount a Raspberry Pi.
If your Android phone uses USB Type-C (aka the oval one), this grip converts it to an ergonomic game controller, complete with tactile feedback and clever cooling. The wired connection means no lag, while Peltier cooling plus a rear fan mean up to a 12°C drop in CPU and 24°C drop in surface temperature.
