The Buddha Board

The Buddha Board…

Buddha BoardI was Introduced to this on A Wake Up Call Yesterday and Rich Reed From The DEA Events team ( Maestro) shared with us this great tool.

It is a fabulous Idea.

It is basically an Art Board that when you Paint or Draw on it with simple water …

You get an image but that image disappears when the water Dries out.

This is The product Description From Amazon

Paint a picture using just water then watch it slowly evaporate, leaving you with a clean slate.

Simply paint on the surface with water and watch your thoughts come alive.

As the water slowly evaporates, your creation fades, leaving the board clean and ready for new ideas.

Based on the Zen idea of living in the moment.

Includes brush; just add water; have a moment of Zen anywhere. “Magical” board records your thoughts before “freeing” them into the world.

I was enthralled at this way of dissipating any negative emotion, literally painting them out and watching them fade away.

I watched as Rich Described it and determined there and then to get one as it was a far better way of getting rid of emotions.

I loved the principle and Now I have one ( Thanks Amazon Prime )I love it even more …

In a convenient fold away “LapTop Style” This can travel any where with you

Lightweight and convenient It now sits in pride of place next to my computer

Ready to bring me back into the now

TruWise Selfie Stick

TruWise Full Function Selfie Stick

TruWise Selfie StickThis is my review for the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick .

I have been looking for a new one for a while, as the jaws on the old one were becoming, er less grippy, and I find it disconcerting to say the least to put a £700 piece of tech on the end of a £10 stick, and waft it over the edge of a skyscraper.

That said I was becoming more dissatisfied with the last one as the controls were clunky and not really compatable to the phones I was using.

So When I was able to try the newTruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick  I jumped at the chance.

I was looking for

  • Better Camera Controls
  • Security for my equipment
  • More versatility
  • Long Life

So when I saw that the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick comes in aluminium, and with a full bluetooth control system I was tempted, but couple that with a life time warranty and the ability to integrate this stick with my tripod, and I was sold.

The Controls

By utilising a purpose built app Available from either the play store or the iPhone App Store the camera is as fully functional as if you were holding it. You can switch easily from front to back camera ( great for periscope) zoom controls all work, switch from still to video all via the remote.

The Remote is neat and very precise and is chargeable via mini usb. The Best part though is it is detachable. I found this as a real bonus on a recent periscope as I was able to set the phone on a tripod and move away completely and yet remain in control … Fantastic

Security

Attaching the phone is straightforward, the jaws are the usual spring loaded affair, but the grip is upgraded and better attached, (My first lost it’s soft grip after a day) The adjustment controls are precise, the camera /phone does not sag over to one side, and you are in control of the tech which is, after all, the most important thing.

Increased Versatility

I use video a lot and I have always struggled to get my phone in a position where I can do face to camera work with no shake. With the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick , this is solved as the selfie stick attaches directly and easily to my tripod, HUGE BONUS.

 

Longevity

I have been using the stick everyday for the last 2 weeks, and it is a seamless integration into my tools bag. The jaws are still strong and the soft rubber grips still intact. I forsee a longlife for this tool. All that said the TruWise Bluetooth Selfie Stick, comes with a life time warranty, so total piece of mind.

To Summarise 

A selfie stick is, at the end of the day, a selfie stick.

  • What makes this one stand out?
  • It is well made
  • It has the fab little remote
  • far better functionality of all the controls ( The phone is fully usable)
  • It integrates with my other equipment
  • It is compact,lightweight, and reasonably priced

I have to say that I was given a substantial discount in exchange for my unbiased review, that said though after 2 weeks of use, I would really miss it, it has become a much used, and trusted piece of kit in my Video/photo equipment bag, and I will be using it for a long time to come.

If you are looking for a quality selfie stick that keeps you in control of your phones camera … Look No Further

Mosiso Envelope Laptop Case

 Mosiso Envelope Laptop CaseThe Mosiso Envelope Laptop Case
was a perfect fit for my wife’s Toshiba Laptop, she has a 15′ machine and it fits in this well made slim fit case like a hand in a  glove.

MY wife has just had a promotion at work and wanted something a little upmarket for the new role… I know may be a bit silly, to be so conscious of what is basically a tool to the job, but when searching for a new case this one stuck out …

It is available in a variety of colours, but my wife choose the dark charcoal.

The Mosiso Envelope Laptop Case has a lovely feel to it, a luxurious lining to keep the machine safe

Tough outer layers to really make sure the machine is protected in transit.

The Mosiso Envelope Laptop Case has slim fit pockets to each side complete this superb case with adequate storage for a day at work with room for a note book some dongles, and her slim power pack,
