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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
