New products of the week (Nov 21)

This week, we look at camera, tablet, headphones, scanner, bluetooth speaker and desktop PC. 


Casio Exilim EX-TR50 (Photo 1)


Take perfect portait photos with Casio's latest Exilim EX-TR50 selfie camera.

Like its predecessors, the entire camera is adjustable, from the touchscreen display down to the lens and frame. Users are able to take photos of themselves without the use of a selfie stick.

It comes equipped with a 1/1.7-inch back illuminated CMOS sensor - the same one used in Casio's top-of-the-line Exilim EX-100 camera. Transfer your photos immediately to your smartphone or tablet with the built-in Wi-Fi function.


Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 Series


Desktop, tablet and laptop - all in one device. That is what Dell is touting with its Venue 11 Pro 7000 series tablets.

When the tablet is slotted into its docking station, it turns into a desktop. When docked into its travel keyboard, it becomes a laptop. This is great for people who are constantly on the move.

Targeted at businesses, the 10.8-inch device comes with security options including a cable lock slot, fingerprint reader and smartcard reader.


B&O Play Beoplay H6 Special Edition


Forget about sharing your music awkwardly by having one earbud in your ear and another in your friend's. The H6 lets you daisy chain two sets together, so each person gets to wear his own pair of cans while listening to the same song.

The three new special editions come in red, brown and blue colours, adding to the existing black and beige. Weighing a light 230g and having an adjustable headband help to make it a more comfortable fit.


Bowers & Wilkins T7


Would you pay triple the price of a regular Bluetooth speaker to play songs from your smartphone or tablet?

Audiophile brand, Bowers & Wilkins, is betting you will, with its first Bluetooth speaker.

The T7 promises rich sound and strong bass through its 50mm drivers that are made out of glass fibre, the same material used in Bowers & Wilkins' award-winning wireless speakers.

The product's long battery life of 18 hours ensures that you can pump out your favourite tunes all day long. At 940g and only the size of a slim, hardback book, you can take it to the beach or to parties.

Want your computer to look like a Lamborghini while being able to choose your own engine and parts? You can do so with Aftershock's latest Hypergate desktop PC, the custom laptop manufacturer's first foray into the desktop space.

Parts you can choose range from the different coloured LED lights to be installed in the case, right down to the thermal paste used.
