Kid's Tech Gift Ideas

1.  KIBO robot kit, from KinderLab Robotics

A unique robot toy that engages even the youngest children in active STEM/STEAM Learning. With KIBO, 4-7 year olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO kids' imaginations soar - all without requiring screen time!

Even if you've heard of KIBO before, there are a few new updates and add-ons that we have this year! This year there us a new activity center guidebook, 4 new module guides, a free throw extension and a marker extension set. http://kinderlabrobotics.com/ extensions-and-more/ and http://kinderlabrobotics.com/blog/press-releases/kinderlab-robotics-introduces-free-throw-extension-set-for-kibo-robot/.

Designed for open-ended play, KIBO lets kids make almost anything - a character from a story, a carousel, a dancer, a race car - anything the child can think of. They plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button and watch their creation go!
When children build, code and decorate their own robot, they are learning invaluable skills that will lead them on the path for success in STEM/STEAM and future careers. Developed by Dr. Marina Bers after 20 years of child development research at Tufts University, KIBO is used in 54 countries and has been tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers.

KIBO is designed to teach children aged 4–7 to build, program, decorate, and bring their own robot to life without requiring any screentime. It serves as an open platform on which students can imagine and create their own robot. Students plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button—and the robot comes alive.

4. AZIO Retro Compact Keyboard
On Indigogo $130


AZIO Corporation, (www.aziocorp.com), a purveyor of premium tech gear since 2009, announced the release of their latest design, the Retro Compact Keyboard (RCK). This innovation from AZIO is being released through a flex Indiegogo campaign today so backers can receive the best pricing and early availability of this mechanical keyboard. The compact design is made of the finest materials and combines usability with two interface options for users to choose from, USB or Bluetooth. The RCK is compatible with Windows, Macs, tablets and is available in four styles – Gunmetal Black, Artisan Copper, Posh White, and Walnut Elwood.
Interested backers of this campaign can purchase the RCK early for $130 USD plus shipping—40 percent off of the retail price of $219. With a flex goal of $10,000, AZIO plans to use the campaign funds to customize international layouts for overseas distribution and secure the finest raw materials to meet the highest quality standards. Characterized as one of the most robust and solid keyboards, the RCK is made of premium alloy and opulent leather/wood, creating a timeless piece that adds a level of luxurious distinction to any work space. AZIO’s Indiegogo campaign for their previous design of the Retro Classic Keyboard raised 1,833 percent of their goal.

“Our aim is to create a timeless design that blurs the line between modern and retro, form and function. Striking a harmonious balance between these elements, the Retro Compact keyboard was designed to inspire and deliver joy with every press of a key. Its compact form and versatility lets you conveniently take it from your home to a café, office or anywhere in the world,” said Sam Li, VP design at AZIO Corp.    

As most keyboards are created with fragile plastic material, AZIO released this version to stand out among the more traditional offerings on the market today. Aesthetically, users will be delighted to find that behind every key is a backlit mechanical switch that not only delivers a subtle click but also illuminates the entire keyboard. Powering it all is a massive built-in 5,000-mAh rechargeable battery which enables months of use on a single charge. In addition, a matching palm rest and two sets of pillar-style feet are included to conform to the ideal ergonomics of the user’s wrist position. Lastly, the RCK is available with a full line of accessories, including an ambidextrous leather mouse and matching mouse pad, with the same distinct look as the vintage, but modern, compact boards. Both are available in a variety of color combinations to adapt to many different styles and environments.
 

5. Sidewinder
https://fusereel.com/
$29.99

The Side Winder, a MacBook charger winder that winds up & protects your charger in seconds! Last year it raised $300,000 on Kickstarter & are now shipping live on website and Amazon.
The Side Winder keeps the cables organized from 12 inches to 12 feet.
 

6. Wood Blinds

Wood blinds in a home office can increase productivity.
“People spend a lot of time at work and their environment definitely affects them,” says Chanuki IllushkaSeresinhe, of the Warwick Business School Data Science Lab. “So if pleasant scenery makes people feel better, there’s a good case that the scenicness of their working environment will have a similar effect.”

It just makes sense. A visually pleasing office puts you at ease and allows you to focus on your work – boosting both morale and productivity. “Just make your space reflect who you are,” advises Mark Montgomery, founder of FLOthinkery.

Recommendation: Wood Blinds remain one of the most popular choices for any room – especially a home office. Wood blinds “add a feeling of warmth and coziness to the atmosphere in the room."

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Back to School Tech

It's that time of the year!
Parents are excited... kids not so much :(

Back to School and everyone now wants a high tech experience.

Rick and Sully talk some great new tech for Back to School.
 
Have a listen:

1. SmartSeat
www.physicalmindinstitute.com/smartseat

Retrain Your Sitting Muscles

“Sitting is the New Smoking” but maybe HOW we sit, with crossed legs and the pelvis tucked, is why 80% of us will experience back and hip pain. PhysicalMind Institute has a solution, SmartSeat™ is designed to retrain your body so that you can undue the damage from poor seated posture.  

SIT Smarter to Correct Your Posture!

The common crossed-leg seated position has been implicated in back, hip and knee pain because sitting this way compresses the spine and lumbar discs, inhibits abdominal muscle support, and unbalances the pelvis and may restrict circulation (spider vein alert)!

SmartSeat™ is a tool that also:   
·   Improves Standing Posture
·   Lifts & Lightens the Upper Body
·   Energizes the Breathing
·   Activates the Core Abdominals

Just 30 minutes of daily use will retrain your body so that you can sit comfortably with legs uncrossed. SmartSeat™ weighs just three ounces but supports the weight of the torso, its design lifts only the SITTING bones, not the seat.   SmartSeat™ is made of a suede-like foam and comes in a protective bag with two portable wedges so that you can take sitting well with you anywhere.
SmartSeat™ is 19” long  with a 3” pommel at the front and flares to 7” at the back of the model. Wedges are 7”x 7”.
$49- available August 15 on www.physicalmindinstitute.com/smartseat
