Welle: Turn Any Surface Into A Smart Interface

I was just notified about a new Kickstarter Campaign announced today on a potential consumer product called Welle. In a world of “smart” everything, including tooth brushes, I have become rather jaded about the multitude of “smart” products on the market currently. Nothing seems to jump out to me anymore as a cool or innovative product with a market saturated with “smart” devices. I seriously got pitched on “smart” toilet paper holder, no joke!

SXSW 2017 Interactive Recap; Part One

SXSW (South By South West) this year is the first year that I covered it solely for Hi-Tech Chic and it proved to be a very successful SXSW thus far as press. It was also the first time I did LIVE broadcasting via twitter and Facebook which was also an interesting experience for those listening, commenting and following my LIVE broadcast. I must admit cell coverage was non-existent during SX so I dropped the broadcast every so often. My apologies who got dropped off the broadcast and thanks for tuning in! Continue Reading →

Note from Editor: Hi-Tech Chic’s Journey for 2017

As of last week I will no longer be writing for Cutegeek.com. My main focus will now be growing and building up this site, Hi-Tech Chic.

Hi-Tech Chic has been off to a great start this year with events like CES 2017 in Las Vegas. I experienced more robots than I have ever seen, the drone rodeo in the desert and several different booths with virtual reality. Needless to say it was a blast!

Another great event I attended was GDC in San Francisco and the AMD launch events including the after party with Mix Master Mike, which was AWESOME! Continue Reading →

AMD’s 2017 GDC and Ryzen 7 Announcements

GDC (Game Developers Conference) happened last week in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Center from February 27th through March 3rd.

In all honesty I am an AMD girl and have been waiting on their new launch of their products that will hopefully prevail over their competitors. Continue Reading →

JUISIR – Juicing With Zero Cleaning and More Juice

One of the biggest hassles of juicing is clean up. It is one of the key reasons why I don’t like juicing. I like the juice but not the huge mess that requires taking apart my juicer to clean it out fully. There had to be another way to juice. Introducing the JUISIR, the worlds first cold press juicer that requires absolutely no clean up. Continue Reading →

PolarPro Launches Kickstarter Campaign for WAVe: A Battery-Integrated Case for Wireless Headphones

 

Yesterday, PolarPro, developer of products inspired by adventure, kicked off its latest Kickstarter campaign for the WAVe, a  battery-integrated carrying case for wireless headphones. Safeguarded in the WAVe’s Napa leather clad protective shell, most wireless headphone models can be recharged up to 10 times off the integrated battery.  This is genius especially for me for two reasons. First, I use my earbuds or headphones at least 3 hours a day if not more and I hate when I get a low battery because the sound quality goes down the tubes. Second, it will make me actually put the headphones back in their case which I am horrible about doing. Normally I would just throw the headphones in my purse exposed to the elements and the black whole of my purse. Continue Reading →
