I recently went to the Blog On Toys conference in Manchester. One of the biggest highlights for me was that Nintendo were there with Labo. If you’re not aware of it already, cardboard and technology combine for customisable fun with Labo and Nintendo Switch. Let me show you how awesome it is – and as a bonus, Nintendo have kindly provided me with a Labo Variety Kit and Customisation Set to giveaway! View Post
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed anything techy, so I leapt at the opportunity to try the Utopia 360° Elite Edition VR Headset with HD Stereo Headphones. Virtual reality is something that’s really taken off over the last few years and has been used in advertising and even featured in music videos.
I’ve used Google Cardboard at work when testing panoramas created by the software, but of course one of its main uses is for gaming. There are plenty of games you can buy from the App Store or Play store, many of which are free! View Post
“Do people still even play Pokemon Go?” I saw written about a million times underneath posts on social media celebrating a year of Pokemon Go last week. Unless you were hiding under a rock somewhere this time last year, you’ll probably remember the craze of Pokemon Go within the first few weeks of its release. Everyone and their mums (literally) were outside in the sunshine with their phones, frantically swiping at their screens to catch pixel creatures.
Today marks a year since I downloaded the app to my phone, through a site based in Hong Kong as it hadn’t officially been released in the UK. Unlike most people who played it for a couple of months as part of the craze, I’m still playing it a year on. But why? View Post
I’m someone who has always had an interest in new developments in technology. When I was pregnant, I heard about Pacif-i, a smart dummy/pacifier that links to your smartphone via bluetooth. It tells you your child’s temperature and can track medication. With a £40 price tag I wasn’t sure about purchasing one. However, there are times that it is VERY handy to have one! View Post
