Silk Wallet Slayer Vol 1 Review

I’ve been using Silk phone cases (Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9) for a several years now and there’s a reason for that. I’ve dropped my phone many times while wearing this case and my phone is fine.

Most recently I dropped my Galaxy S10 face down onto concrete. I thought my phone would be destroyed. I picked it up and there wasn’t a scratch on the screen.

The body of the case feels very unified. The back is a soft and smooth rubber while the edges have a grippy texture.

I love using the card holder to place parking passes for easy and quick access.

On Silk’s website you can add artwork to help flare up your case. You can also print your own design to make it truly unique.

SofaBaton R2 Roku Remote Review

Almost every review that I’ve read for Roku products complains that you can’t program the remote. The SofaBaton R2 Roku Remote fixes that issue.

At first glance the SofaBaton R2 Roku Remote looks and feels very similar to a typical Roku remote. The bottom portion functions how you’d expect. The top portion is the programmable part.

Programming its buttons is very simple. The included instructions are easy to understand.

The SofaBaton R2 Roku Remote includes 13 programmable buttons. So each could launch different channels, turn on/off your TV, soundbar, etc. It’s a Universal IR Remote. It’s not compatible with Bluetooth or Wifi-enabled devices. It does require direct line of sight with a Roku player to work.

It’s compatible with Roku 1, Roku 2, Roku 3, Roku 4, Roku Premier+, Roku Express+, Roku Ultra. It’s not compatible with Roku sticks and Roku TV.

So if you have multiple devices and are tired of using multiple remotes to control them, the SofaBaton R2 Roku Remote could be the perfect solution.

Eagle Eyes 3in1 Vintage Round Glasses Review

Digital light lens.

I think by now many of us have heard someone say something about blue light and how it’s harming our eyes. Probably not many of us have acted upon this news.

But what if I were to tell you that blue light is all around us 24/7? Don’t you think your eyes deserve some relief? I’m not suggesting you try to stick to a New Years Resolution of using your smartphone for less hours, as we know you won’t.

You could though use these Eagle Eyes 3in1 Vintage Round glasses. They help prevent eyestrain whether you’re looking at a computer screen, night time driving, or during the daytime to block blue light and UVA & UVB rays.

What’s included in the box.

Your first question is do they actually work? Well Eagle Eye glasses use NASA-certified technology. So yes they do work. I spend a lot of time starring at my Surface Studio 2‘s giant screen and immediately I noticed a difference. The screen looks just as clear, but my eyes feel as if they are less strained. The glasses are super light so I could easily imagine wearing them for a full shift of computer work.

I have experienced problems with being outside at night with LED car headlights or LED street lights. Running around my block or driving my car there’s a heck of a lot of glare. I constantly am putting my hand up to help block oncoming car’s headlights. The Night-Lites glasses removed the harshness from these light sources. In a way it reminded me of what night life was like 15 years ago before LED lights were even on the streets. It was still just as bright as ever, but night got its warm tone light back.

The hook is in the middle. Silver square magnets on the sides.

Adding the second pair of lenses is easy to do. Hook either the Polarized Lens or Night-Lites on your frame and they’ll magnetize on the sides. This makes the lens stick on the frame. This system is very discrete. I don’t think a person would notice that your wearing two layers of lens.

There’s no reason why you won’t be satisfied with Eagle Eyes 3in1 Vintage Round Glasses. They seem like a great way to keep your eyes healthy.

MATRIX PowerWatch 2

Power The Next Gen Smartwatch

This is a fascinating IndieGoGo campaign for a smartwatch that powers itself. As we all know, one of the worst things about smartwatches it that you have to take them off to charge them. The Matrix PowerWatch 2 features two ways of charging with thermoelectric generators and all-new solar-cell technology. This should generate more than enough energy to operate the built-in intelligent heart rate monitor, wherever, whenever.

Never having to think about whether or not your smartwatch is charged before you head out the door sets your mind at ease and saves you time. Compared to the original PowerWatch the some additional new features include notifications, GPS, heart rate sensor, and the screen is presented in color.

These are huge leaps in tech so we shall see how well they work together when this watch arrives later this year.

Shwood Canby Wood Walnut Grey Polarized Sunglasses Review

The minute I saw the Shwood container box I knew I was in for a treat. The style was on point. Opening the travel case, which is made from recycled chipboard, and reading the tagline “experiment with nature” I thought, “damn these Schwood sunglasses have serious class”.

Quality isn’t something that is  easy to find. When you discover eyewear that’s handcrafted with care, your face glows. That’s the feeling I had when I put on the Shwood Canby Wood Walnut Grey Polarized Sunglasses.

What’s impressive is when you see threw the lenses you get an unparalleled clarity. It’s like going from standard definition TV to high definition TV. They’re made with Premium CR39 lens. Since they’re polarized they offer 100% protection against UVA/UVB rays. Your eye doctor will love you. The elimination of harsh glare from the world around you makes you want to go out and explore the world to see it in a way you haven’t before. The size of the lens wrap around a good amount of your peripheral vision so you lose the sense that you’re wearing glasses in the first place.

You might read that these Canby Wood sunglasses are made from premium grade hardwood and worry that they’re heavy on your ears or nose. Don’t worry they’re lightweight and completely comparable to the weight of any other pair of sunglasses. This packed with also their ultra-thin aluminum stringers help keep your face cool and allow more skin breathability.

Shwood sunglasses are a step above the rest. All Shwood eyewear is treated with Shwood’s secret blend of non-allergenic, organic waxes and oils and sealed with with light shellac finish. All of this is done to help the wood maintain a proper moisture balance needed to prevent drying out and/or cracking while also helping to repel water. 

The Canby Wood is Shwood’s flagship model. It’s a timeless look built with quality and luxury.
