Every week, there are plenty of new products emerging in the consumer tech realm. At times, it becomes impossible to cover all of them. Here, we pick the new products of the week and deliver them to you in bite-size format.
Razer Kanagawa Wave Apparel
From US$49.90, available Apr 8 exclusively on Razer Store
Razer will be launching the Kanagawa Wave Apparel collection, a range of limited-edition clothing made with materials created from recovered marine plastics, as part of its effort to create awareness about ocean pollution.
The apparel collection is emblazoned with a stylised version of the famous Great Wave off Kanagawa artwork. It is designed to highlight the issue of marine plastics pollution. Proceeds from the sale will fund efforts in reducing marine plastics to protect the oceans. The collection includes cap, hoodie, T-shirt, tank top and shorts.
In-ear monitors are precision wired in-ear headphones that are worn by musicians and performers. Usually, they cost a bomb ranging in the thousands. But the Meze 12 Classics V2 is very affordable at only $99.
For that price, each earbud sports a real walnut paired with copper-anodised aluminium body. In its inside, it has a 8mm titanium coated driver said to reproduce sound in a clear, natural and detailed manner.
Asics Metaspeed Sky and Edge
$349 (Sky, available now), $349 (Edge, available Jun 4)
Asics has designed the Metaspeed running shoes for elite athletes taking part in this year’s Olympics. Recognising different runners need different types of shoes, Asics created Metaspeed Sky for stride runners and Metaspeed Edge for cadence runners.
Stride runners have long strides and spend more time in the air, while cadence runners use shorter and rapid strides with minimal up and down motion. Both shoes feature a curved sole design that helps to reduce ankle flexion and conserve more energy.
$1,299 (available in Shopee)
The Roborock S7 is a robotic vacuum cleaner that not only suck up dust, it mops as well. Its intelligent VibraRise technology automatically lifts the mop when carpets are detected. Thus, it can mop hard floors and vacuum carpets in the same session.
Its large 5,200mAh battery allows up to 3 hours of uninterrupted cleaning, while its accompanying app (available on Android and iOS) gives you plenty of control like managing cleaning schedules.
This spider-looking Wi-Fi router comes with 8 antennas and features next-generation Wi-Fi 6 standard for fast Wi-Fi speeds and high network efficiency. It does so by dividing each channel into smaller sub-channels, which have a smaller bandwidth but enables them to travel up to 80 per cent further than conventional channels. So, there is a less likelihood to have a signal blind spot in your HDB flat.
It also features two 10G ports – a Base-T and a SFP+ – which means both fibre and copper 10G connections are supported. Great when you need wired stable connection for your gaming marathons.
