The crowded media sneak peek showcased a variety of wearable devices, but our favorite was the Vert Jump Device. It’s a small motion sensor, about the size of a folded over stick of gum, that can precisely measure the wearer’s vertical leap and display it instantly on a small display. The Vert also streams data to laptops and smartphones. Don’t be surprised if you see real-time data from the Vert integrated into live sports broadcasts in the next few years.
Marshall showed off it’s Major 2 on-ear headphones as well, and at $100 it’s a quality set of no-frills cans. Soft leather earcups, a coiled cable, and a re-voiced sound signature make these stylish performers.
Bluetooth speakers are everywhere, but that convenience is lost on your old set of loudspeakers … until now. The Griffin Twenty is a Bluetooth-enabled amp. Just wire in your speakers, connect, and enjoy. The Twenty conveniently delivers 20 watts per channel, and its sleek design fits in just about anywhere.
