If you’ve been following our series of fantastic gadgets, and you’ve indeed found them, you would be familiar with the drill. This is a monthly series that we showcase some products that you may or may not know about. This time, we’re taking a different spin on things. We’re at Infotel, Sri Lanka’s largest ICT expo and exhibition. While this year seems to be a bit laid back with regard to gadgets and devices to purchase, we took a look around and found a number of interesting gadgets by Prolink, distributed by Sala Enterprises. Here’s what we found:
At first glance, the Prolink Probrick+ might look like your average 4-port charger. But in reality, it has quite a bit more going for it. Firstly, it’s a 4 port, USB 3.0 hub. It also acts as a notebook adapter and has a wide variety of ports compatible with almost any laptop available. Further, it also acts as a high-speed USB charging device for your smartphone or USB device.
It can also work as a car charger as well. So you can charge your device and also transfer data to and from it at the same time. It’s also quite light, weighing in at around 169g.
The Prolink PPS80M portable Solar Light is quite a compact device indeed. As the name suggests, the device comes with two LED bulbs, each with its own 4m cable that can be charged via the included solar panel. In addition, the unit also comes with two USB charging ports so you can charge two devices simultaneously.
If you find yourself in a bit of a dark place, you can use the built-in 4400mAh battery to shed some light on things. If you need to charge the device, simply leave it in the sun to soak up some sunlight and you’re good to go.
This is an interesting combination of gadgets. The PPL1501N is a Powerline AV adapter that has the functionality of a Wireless-N access point. The device plugs into a wall socket and has two RJ45 LAN ports. Why, you ask? Well, that’s where the PPL1500P comes into play. This device is also a Powerline AV/AV2 adapter that has the functionality of a AC pass through. This too plugs into a wall socket.
So what basically happens is, you’re able to extend your router’s signal via electricity using these two devices. You plug a LAN cable from your router into the PPL1501N and then plug the PPL1500P into a wall socket, configure it via the LAN port and you have extended network connectivity minus all the cabling and hassle.
This one is for all the drummers out there. The Konix MD760 is a rollable drum kit that includes 2 crash cymbals, a ride cymbal, hi-hats, snare, bass drum, high tom, low tom and floor tom drums. The sound quality is quite realistic and you can choose from 12 demo songs to drum along to. If you’re just learning to drum, then this can be quite a cost-effective solution as well.
You can even connect it to a PC and use it with professional audio applications such as Sonar, Cubase, and Nuendo and record some beats as well. The accompanying CD has all software and manuals you would need to get the best of this very cool gadget.
This is a pretty cool gadget. As the name says, the Langie handheld device that is able to provide real-time translations for up to 52 languages including English, Sinhala, Tamil, Hindi, Arabic, Chinese, French, Italian, Dutch and Korean. Once configured to identify what language to translate and what language to translate to, simply press the large button on the device.
Speak clearly into the microphone and the device will translate your statement into the selected language by showing it to you on screen and also reading it out loud. The device connects to Wi-Fi and can even perform voice searches as well. It’s a tad more expensive than the usual gadgets that we feature here but we feel that it deserves an honourable mention.
Well, there you have it. These are the fantastic gadgets we came across and you too can find them at Infotel as well. They will be on sale until Sunday 5th November 2017 at a discounted price but will go back to their retail price once Infotel 2017 comes to a close. So if you’re on the lookout for a gadget such as this, then we suggest that you get a move on.
