Ash Checks Out Some Super Cool Gadgets

Casio’s Ex-G1 can withstand a drop from 2 metres foot, is waterproof up to 10 feet deep, is also freeproof to -10 degrees Celsius, and is shockproof.

It’s a pretty solid little camera to boot at 12 Megapixels, plenty for the beach, camping and festival shots where this type of camera shines.

Next up is the Roadie, which claimed to be able to deliver big sound anywhere by amplifying vibrations through any flat surface. This means you can turn a desk, a kitchen bench, even a wooden table, into a party starter. It also comes with a built-in microphone for the MCs amongst you and it’ll work with most MP3 devices and mobile phones.

Finally, for those of you who like to stay connected while out and about, there is Ultimate USB modem, which has been reported to deliver speeds up to 18.9 Mega bits per second, which is faster than any ADSL2+ connection.  It achieves this using two downlink NextG data channels instead of one.

Outside the CBD, it’s still pretty quick, but at this stage a lot of radio towers can’t support the dual channels.  The square dongle contrasts with a lot of the slim USB modems on the market, but it swivels and tilts to fit any tight space you’re working in.
