The Teracube Smartphone features all you need in a smartphone and more, according to its pitch for crowdfunding. The Teracube is a high-end smartphone that costs a third of the latest iPhone and to top it all off, there’s a free 4-year warranty.
As the first-ever phone to enter the market with a 4-year warranty and high-end specifications, the Teracube is priced at only $349. It’s a wow-factor if you remember that the newly launched iPhone 11 Pro will cost you a month’s rent.
This new smartphone is definitely worth watching and snatching once it’s available commercially. Even though it has a specification sheet that matches up to any flagship smartphone you can think of, what really took me by surprise was the 4-year warranty that ships with each device, this is a game-changer.
Most of us can relate as it has happened to me more than once. I purchased the latest iPhone and pay a monthly charge with my bill to the carrier. The minute the full cost is covered, your iPhone battery goes, an accident happens or some form of misfortune. Only to find out that the device is now out of warranty, so you have to cough up a few hundred bucks or enter into a new agreement with your carrier for another phone.
Teracube 4-Year Warranty
The company behind Teracube promises a 4-year hassle-free warranty. This means that the company promises high performance for years, express replacement, free battery change and a mere $39 to replace the screen if accidentally damaged, compared to $300 or more for a flagship screen replacement, this less than you spend buying coffee each week.
Teracube warranty covers all parts, the device’s performance, labor, and a two-shipping at no cost to you. If you like keeping a phone until the buttons fall out like me, you should be freaking ecstatic right now.
A rock-solid warranty program, one of the best price-point we’ve seen for a flagship-grade smartphone, and still the Teracube didn’t stumble on the hardware and features.
It is equipped with a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display with a 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution. The screen features a notch, similar to the new iPhone. However, the notch can be hidden if want to.
Teracube display was constructed using gorilla glass which is more durable than normal glass and is scratch resistant.
Teracube packs the power a MediaTek P60 Octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. In addition to the massive storage capacity, the phone supports microSD cards up to 256GB.
Other noteworthy features include face unlock, a fingerprint sensor on the rear for added security, PIN and pattern unlocking, Google Pay, Dual-SIM, and 3,400mAh battery to keep the lights on all day.
On the rear, there’s a dual-camera setup which includes 12-megapixel and a 5-megapixel lens while the selfie camera on the front features an 8-megapixel lens.
There’s also a slew of connectivity options; these are WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, and a USB-C port. Teracube will ship with Android 9 Pie but the Android 10 update will be available in spring 2020.
We aren’t the only ones ecstatic about this new durable phone. The company started a crowdfunding campaign seeking $25k to go to production and has since has surpassed $95k in funding. The campaign closes in 15 days, go grab the early bird special at $199, that’s a $150 discount.
There’s nothing like an advert for a spurious technological product in black and white to make you realise just how much progress we’ve made as a tech society. Whether it’s bizarre contraptions for making phone calls or lighting products that barely look safe, it’s fair to say that we’ve all got a heck of a lot more access to reliable tech now.
Still, there’s a lot of fun and interest to be found in surveying images of old tech and reminding ourselves of how things used to be. That’s where Concept Talk’s Instagram feed comes in – it’s full of amazing photos from days gone by. We’ve combed through it to find some amazing photographs for your browsing pleasure.
Cars reflect our times more than we sometimes realise – their designs and looks are generally tied to the sort of tech that we as a society are purchasing and hankering for. No wonder, then, that this Ford model looks so funky – it’s from the 70s and we just can’t get enough of that colourful stripe.
Pimp my ride
Bikes, compared to cars at least, haven’t changed nearly so much – after all, the core technology can only come on so far. That said, it’s been a while since we saw a lighting option for a bicycle quite like this one, which straps a frankly astonishing number of bulbs to your bike. If people were concerned about being seen when it was dark, this certainly would have solved the problem.
People’s imagined versions of the future always make for fascinating comparisons after the fact, and this painting from Italy is a perfect example. Its vision of isolated individuals zipping around in personal vehicles that seal them off from the rest of society is, on the one hand, far-fetched, but also bears at least a passing resemblance to some aspects of how we live now.
People also liked to imagine what our cities would look like decades into the future, and these predictions seem, for whatever reason, to often skew towards the optimistic. Hence you get ideas like this one, which posited that the skyscrapers shooting up in cities around the globe would all be topped by gardens to lessen their environmental and visual impact. Sadly, this hasn’t really proven true.
Going all the way back to 1930, this neon salesman’s case is a great example of how futuristic some real retro technology can be – the way these tubes are powered is so low-fi that most of us would struggle to comprehend it. What’s obvious, though, is that it has a gorgeous look and feel to it, sure to be a collector’s item nowadays.
Fast-forwarding rapidly into this century, we love this image, because of how well we know that it was, in its day, the height of sophistication. This is someone’s amazing rig to play flight simulators on, even if a modern PC gamer would snort at the idea. Compare those chunky monitors to modern ultra-wide options and you’ll see the definition of progress.
This is a photo so farfetched as to look amusing, but this idea of how people might look if fashion changed drastically, while telecommunications technology stayed bafflingly static, makes for an amusing collage of concepts.
Similarly, this isn’t an actual design or prototype of a spacesuit, as we’d hope would be obvious, but even as an exploration of what suits could one day look like, it’s amusing how far off-base it is.
Meanwhile, this concept for a nap pod now looks mighty prescient. It might not be right in design terms, with the bulbous looks no longer in vogue at all, but ever since Google famously added napping stations to its huge campus in Silicon Valley, nap pods have become, if not popular, at least accepted.
Setting aside Elon Musk’s folly in the form of the Cybertruck, we think it’s fair to say that car design has got a heck of a lot less interesting over the last few decades, as this gorgeous model demonstrates. While it might not have been a bestseller, we can’t see such a radical design getting made now.
Quite a den
This artist’s idea of what an ideal den would look like, meanwhile, has us drooling in envy. If you mentally upgrade its pinball table to a games console, this really isn’t that far off what people aspire to nowadays, as much as its aesthetics are wild. Who wouldn’t want a pool-room?!
By contrast, this simple image of a phone from the 70s is a useful reminder that actual, physical tech from decades gone by can often be underwhelming or even openly a bit ugly. We’re not saying that floral prints and patterns are always grim, but we’re also not sure we’d want this telephone in our house.
Clash of cultures
We like this image for how dated different elements of it are – in particular, the contrast between the futuristic TV set (for the time) and the dolls sat on the shelves to its right – showcasing how quickly tech marched on in the 20th Century.
We’d like to say that easy headphone splitting has become way easier since this image, but it amusingly hasn’t really, at least not if you still want eight kids to listen to the same source of audio. Still, whatever solution exist are probably a damn sight smaller, at least.
Spin the decks
Speaking of record players, this might be the most ostentatious one we’ve ever seen – a set of decks embedded in what can only be described as a giant marble egg, it’s just about one of the ugliest bits of interior decor on record, we think.
This phone is a good contrast to the floral print option we featured earlier – it might be using daisies to advertise itself, but the actual design of the telephone is, dare we say it, really nice. It’s elegant and timeless, and we’d happily use it now.
The cover of this book is a great reminder of how microwaves changed the game when they first became widely available and affordable – speeding up some types of food preparation to the point where young people might genuinely need reminders that the technology isn’t just magic.
Spherical televisions are a law unto themselves. We know they don’t make sense ergonomically or for viewing angles, yet we can’t help ourselves when we say that they just look ace. Would we watch a movie on one now? Of course not. Would we have one as an interesting bit of art? Quite possibly.
The audio mixer itself might be front and centre, but that doesn’t stop us from thinking that we can’t see any modern companies marketing their product with an image of someone enjoying a joint in the background – maybe that’s just us!
This photo from the Mitsubishi archive is a fun look at how big a speaker can get if you’re pushing the boundaries of the sensible – we’re not sure what it would sound like turned on, but we can imagine the pain of any sort of interference feeding into it.
What better way to market your hi-fi like Philips has done here, with a ruddy great lightning bolt. Marketing copy? No thanks – just give us a stormy sky and huge pink glints on the speakers to show that this thing is built for rock and roll.
This might just be the coolest vehicle of any type that we’ve seen in quite some time, but the fact that it was built in the 1930s makes it almost jaw-dropping. We can see the reasons why this didn’t spread to become a normal sort of thing to own, but that’s still a crying shame.
A burger-shaped phone would later be made iconic by the film Juno, but why not have a portable games console in the same shape? This concept piece is hilarious to look at, and you don’t the sense that its two buttons and a D-pad would be much fun to play, but it’s certainly memorable.
Our final picture is a final phone, too, and we’re honestly torn on it. Is it a great bit of knowingly kitsch design with huge buttons that are unique and fun, or an ugly monstrosity with buttons that should never be replicated anywhere, ever. At the end of the day, we might just have to leave that to you.
Things might have slowed down quite a bit over the last few months but that doesn’t mean everyone has closed up shop. Phone maker UMIDIGI, for its part, has been rather busy and is back with another new handset.The UMIDIGI A7 Pro, set to arrive on May 26, is a successor to its entry-level A5 Pro and figures to offer a great price to performance ratio. As such, it’s expected to cost less than $150 when it goes on sale.Normally you’d expect some pretty lean specifications for a phone priced this low, and you’d probably be right. But, UMIDIGI being who it is, has some pretty respectable hardware under the hood.The UMIDIGI A7 Pro features four cameras on the rear with AI smarts to capture the best shots in all environments. The 16-megapixel main lens is supported by a 16-megapixel ultra-wide (120 degree), 5-megapixel macro, and 5-megapixel depth sensor. Around front is a 16-megapixel selfie camera.The UMIDIGI A7 Pro packs a generously sized 6.3-inch waterdrop full screen with FHD (2340 x 1080 pixel) resolution. With an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, it should make for a thin design that’s easy to control in one hand.As far as power goes, the UMIDIGI A7 Pro comes with 4GB LPDDR4X RAM and is will be offered in two storage capacities: 64GB and 128GB. Paired with the enhanced Octa-Core processor, it’s considerably more powerful (AnTuTu 22,547) than its predecessor (92,514).The phone houses a 4,150mAh battery with a 10W charger included in the box and comes in Ocean Blue and Cosmic Black colors. Also in the way of design, the 2.5D glass back and metal frame and optical plating technology gives the phone a premium flagship appearance.Wrapping up noteworthy specification, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the back, USB Type-C, and a 3-Card Slot (Dual SIM + MicroSD) with up to 256GB expandable memory.

Jump start battery pack. Why you should keep one in your car at all times.
For a lot of families, the holiday season means a lot of travel. While some people fly, it is not practical to do so to all destinations so driving is the only solution for many journeys. The one thing that can ruin these long drives and make them miserable is car troubles. These troubles can, unfortunately, happen in any weather and at any time, and can be hard to predict. The best thing you can do is to be prepared for any unexpected situation such as waking up to your car’s battery to be flat. It will happen at some point, it is not a question of if, but when. This is where a jump start battery pack comes in handy.
These days relying on a kind soul to appear at the time when your car batteries run out can be a very risky thing to expect. I would suggest you get yourself a portable jump start battery pack for your car. Not only they will get your car going in no time, but they are also so small you can keep them in your glove compartment or boot and even use them to recharge your phone or other devices. Many of the different options on the market are also able to slowly trickle charge your car battery in addition to being able to start it up with ease. Generally, they are relatively inexpensive.
Why a portable jump start battery pack is the best solution.
Picking up a portable jump start battery pack for your car is one of the best options to ensure your car always stays on the road, whatever the conditions. Traditional jumper cables can work but they are by no means as good an option. They are far from ideal and they require the help of another person and another car and sometimes there simply isn’t any around. In addition to needing someone in another car to help you, you also need your car to be parked in a certain way and jumper cables have the potential to damage both your car and the hosts.
With how affordable and available many portable jump start battery packs are, you’d be doing yourself and your family a disservice by not having one with you on long drives. Check out these options that will mean you will never have to worry about something like this ever being a problem again.
DBPOWER 600A 18000mAh Car Jump Starter will jump-start a car that had been sitting up for months, no waiting around. After jumping the car, it still has an average 98% charge, which is impressive. Its small size makes it ideal to store it in the glove compartment. In addition, with the additional ports, you can charge any smartphone, laptop, whatever! It has an emergency flashing light, flashlight and compass. Definitely a keeper and should be kept in any vehicle for emergencies.
YABER WaterProof Car Battery Jump Starter 600A Peak 12000mAh is really easy to use, pop it right on the battery, give it a minute, and the car turns right over. Very portable and it can also charge your phone. So even if you do not have a car anymore it still has a use as a phone or tablet portable charger. It is a very compact and a strong build jump starter ideal for keeping one on each of your cars so you don’t have to bother anyone on the road. A must have product!
GOOLOO 500A Peak SuperSafe Car Jump Starter is far handier than requiring another vehicle to boost your dead vehicle. The LED is incredibly bright. The 2 USB ports are very handy to charge phones, and the entire unit is smaller than we would have expected, which is great in itself. When you are preparing for any trip, size is a major factor, and this fit the bill perfectly as you can tuck it away almost anywhere in the car. Why would you want to depend on someone’s goodwill when you can do it yourself?
Yaber 1000A 20800mAh Jump Starteris incredibly powerful for its size. I tried it on a v8 truck battery that had gone flat and the starter was only making a clicking noise. As soon as I popped the jump box on it fired right up with no hesitation. I highly recommend that you keep one of these in your car. You will never have to worry about a dead battery again. Definitely, a must have.
NOCO Genius GB150 4000 Amp Jump Starter can jump-start 13.0L Navistar diesel engines with ease, something I thought wasn’t possible from a battery pack of this size. I can see anyone using this almost every day, multiple times in a day. I love being able to use a cigarette lighter 12V charger on my work truck to charge the battery. The digital voltage reading on the front of the battery is super helpful, to check for alternator/generator voltage. Honestly, this thing will get you started whenever you encounter an emergency.
The 5 options above will/would save your skin time and time again. That moment when you realise you left the lights on all night and your batteries are flat is horrible and when it happens, it happens at the worst possible time. Be smart and avoid this ever happening to you again. Click on the above if you want to read the full reviews. Any of them are good options and it is down to personal taste. Technology these days means that with one of these in your car you will no longer have to worry about a flat battery, ever. Looking for more options than these? Check out these alternative jump start battery packs.

The Spy glasses with a hidden camera is one of the most used everyday objects in spying and recording images taken with a hidden camera. Perhaps the most famous recording made for this purpose can be found in the video that transpired from the Infanta’s statement before Judge Castro . It must be borne in mind that mobile phones and pens were requisitioned in that trial to prevent this, so we can conclude that spy glasses with hidden cameras are one of the best camouflaged objects and that they go unnoticed to record anonymously and not be detected, since the security teams that filtered the entrance were not able to detect them.
There are many models of spy glasses and many uses for them. A very common use in students is to wear spy glasses for exams , although they can be used in work meetings and in any other daily situation.
We can find different types and models of spy glasses for men and women and advances in technology allow us to find the best spy glasses for less than € 100 today. The best models allow you to record in high definition.
In addition, all models come with instructions for spy glasses and are current models so they can go through normal lenses.
Here you can see all the spy glasses models available in your nearest spy store.
As you can see we have many models. The second model of spy glasses has surely caught your attention. Those are for the ski slopes, so you can record video while skiing down the mountain.
THIS IS HOW SPY GLASSES RECORD WITH A VIDEO CAMERA
In this video you can see a recording made with glasses with a hidden camera and we can see that nobody detects or comments on anything, even over short distances. To download the images and videos stored in the memory of the lenses, we only have to connect them through the USB of the computer to proceed to download them.

It seemed to have happened overnight: drones took over the world. No, seriously. Besides delivery, videography, and mapping, they’re also being used to help enforce social distancing. Then there’s the guy who walked his dog with a drone and the guy who had a totally-not-creepy drone date. We live in weirder times than any of us even realized. But that’s beside the point.
If you want to get in on the craze and enjoy the freedom of flight, we’ve found a deal on a great starter drone: the SHIFT RED. While others may require a steep learning curve, the SHIFT RED is intuitive enough for you to fly solo pretty quickly. Its one-hand control system, enabled by the Near-Field Micro-Sensing technology, makes flying as easy as moving your thumb around on a joystick. And there are even eight different auto-pilot modes that let you cruise around and take breathtaking shots with a tap of your finger.

Google plans to launch its Google Pixel 4 Smartphone at a press event next week. The new smartphone is expected to come with two variants; a standard and an XL variant.
The unveiling event is expected to take place next Tuesday, October 15 at 10 AM ET. Google also plans to reveal a slew of new gadgets at this press event including a new Chromebook. However, it is said that the Google Pixel 4 announcement is likely the biggest.
A few details have been leaked leading up to the launch of Pixel 4. None of these details has been confirmed but we will be able to do so this Tuesday.
Here are some of the details we can expect with the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL:
Google Pixel 4 will feature advanced motion-sensing technology, which is powered by Google’s Radar Technology. This new feature will allow the user to simply answer the phone by waving their hand or even skip to the next song.
The display will have a 90Hz refresh rate, which allows scrolling and screen animations to feel smoother, according to Google 9to5.
Google has dropped the fingerprint sensor like the Google Pixel 3.
There will be a cutout square on the back of the phone for the camera sensors, similar to the iPhone 11 Pro. In the cutout, there will be a dual-lens camera which was revealed by a photo posted by Google.
We will have a full specifications sheet once the device is launched on Tuesday.
Samsung has announced a new camera sensor for phones that potentially offers faster autofocus and better low-light photography.
The Samsung Isocell GN1 is a 50-megapixel sensor with 1.2μm-sized pixels – larger than usual. This, combined with Dual Pixel and Tetracell technology (for the first time in a single Samsung sensor), allows for more sensitive light capture and “DSLR-style autofocus speeds”.
Tetracell technology effectively improves a pixel’s ability to capture and process more light by binning four pixel signals into one. It therefore increases the pixel size to 2.4μm and enables much brighter 12.5-megapixel images – a quarter of the usual resolution but better low-light pics.
Dual Pixel technology utilises two photodiodes sitting side-by-side in a single pixel, with each able to receive light from different angles for phase detection. That means, when all pixels are deployed for focusing, it snaps into focus much more quickly that previous Samsung camera sensors.
As well as the two technologies, the GN1 comes with Smart-ISO technology for auto ISO selection, real-time HDR, and electronic image stabilisation.
It supports video recording in up to 8K 30fps.
The chip, which is seen as a direct rival to Sony‘s IMX689 alternative – found in the OnePlus 8 Pro and a few other recent handsets – will be going into mass production this month. We should see it in phones later this year.
