Consumers like the ability to enhance their audio without the headache of an extensive setup.
Today, Samsung is expanding its line of home theater equipment with a focus on shoppers that desire a high-end experience. With 4K compatibility, wireless 5.1-channel surround sound and a big price tag, it will be interesting to see how these new releases fare in comparison to the competition.

Warmer weather and summer months are meant for outdoor cooking. One of my personal favorite meals is to make pizza on the grill. I learned about this process thanks to a handy guide that I got off Amazon. Although charcoal pizza is good, it’s difficult to replicate a true woodfire experience short of building an actual oven.
A new camping accessory plans on changing all of that. The BioLite PizzaDome is a miniature all-in-one oven that blends ease of use with real wood flavors. It’s an interesting design that attaches to the company’s BaseCamp stove. The whole thing is available in a launch day bundle with special pricing and even has a few surprises up its sleeve.

Everyone likes to talk about coffee makers, whether AeroPress or Chemex is better or if Keurig has ruined our society for good java. Truth is, your coffee grinder is just as important to the process as your brewer. You have to start with a Burr-style grinder. It’s the best way to prep your beans for maximum flavor extraction. But evidently, there is a way to make it even better…
A new Kickstarter campaign brings us a Wi-Fi-connected coffee grinder that “measures bean freshness” and automatically replenishes your supply when it runs low. Sort of like Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service meets an elite nose for coffee…

Remember the first time you saw an AirPort wireless router at an Apple store? Or perhaps at a CompUSA? Chances are, you haven’t been that fired up about a router in a while, at least not visually. In a move that was bound to happen, a new brand called Plume is releasing a new networking product that has a slim design and, you guessed it, comes in Silver, Space Gray and Gold colorings.
Design aside, Plume wants you to place these geometric extenders all over your home in favor of one central router. The specs promise a self-monitoring network that will constantly work to improve itself. And at $39 per unit during the pre-order period, the price isn’t too shabby either…

Even better than that one from Rolls Royce.

Working in an office or even sitting next to someone at home can prove to be an annoying experience when sound from one activity leaks into another. Let’s just say my wife isn’t always fond of my evening Battlefield missions. The same can be said for that coworker that loves 80’s Euro disco when you like more of an acoustic vibe. Headphones are a natural answer but it cuts you off from the rest of your environment and those ear cups can get hot.
A new product called Soundlazer has taken to Kickstarter with its “virtual sound cloud” speaker system. It promises “immersive” listening experiences that don’t bug your neighbor. Early interest is strong but will it stand the test of time?
