Gadgets For Travel, Work and Home
Xiaomi M365 Pro
Walking is so last century. Xiaomi’s M365 Pro electric scooter is here to help you keep up with the times, and pace, too. This clever ride is powered by a 300W motor, which is able to reach up to speed at approximately 25km/h. Apart from that, this scooter also converts and stores kinetic energy during acceleration into electrical power so you can zoom around the city without worrying about losing steam. With its compact size and easy-to-fold mechanism, you can bring this onto commuter and light rail trains, then get around easily to your office or classes. You could even bring it on holiday and explore your destination quicker. Retails for around RM2,299 ($557 USD).
Bellroy Tech Kit
Keep your chargers, cables, and dongles in one place with the convenient Bellroy Tech Kit (RM279 or around $68 USD). This pouch has a very premium look and feel, and it gets the job done, too. The clamshell pouch zips out flat for optimal organisation and easy access. Inside, you’ll find mesh pockets suitable for storing items such as pen drives and your mouse. Meanwhile, the series of elastic bands is a welcome addition for tucking USB cables, earphones and the likes. Now you’ll never again have to rummage all around your luggage to find what you need!
Logitech C920s Webcam
In this day and age of online conferences and virtual classes, one simply has to look good in pixels. If you’re not too keen on forking out extra bucks for a brand new laptop that comes with a top-of-the-line webcam, why don’t you check out the Logitech C920s webcam instead? The webcam captures sharp high-definition (1080p) images and there are built-in stereo microphones too. Its overall build is robust, not at all flimsy. On top of that, you can get the perfect angle when filming all thanks to the tilting function. Attach this to your laptop, and it makes a great camera for filming outdoor activities where you’re not moving around too much… food reviews come to mind! The Logitech C920s is currently going for $69.90 USD in the US, and can be ordered online.
