Another Successful Photography Show!We have just returned from the NEC following a successful 3 days at the show with our client Manfrotto. The Photography Show runs each year for 4 days and showcases the latest in photographic gear and it is an event we always enjoy attending. It is a chance to have a good catch up with everyone all in the same place and show off the latest products from Manfrotto, Gitzo, Lastolite by Manfrotto and others. Over the course of 3 days we met with 21 publications including Amateur Photographer, Photography News, Practical Photography, Digital Camera, TechRadar, PhotoPlus and more. Whilst it is always a busy few days it is definitely an enjoyable show and we are already looking forward to next year!
Edifier Wins ‘Best on Test’ in T3! Luna Named As One Of The Best Gadgets In The WorldGreat news for the Edifier Luna e25 – it received the Best on Test and Platinum Award from T3, beating other speakers from Harman Kardon, JBL, B&O, and Libratone.
The Luna Eclipse is a touch sensitive, Bluetooth home audio system. The smooth, sleek finish enables it as the perfect accessory that completes your home or office. Each one on Luna’s satellites is equipped with a 3/4″ tweeter and a 3″ bass driver. Together these produce 74 watts RMS. The bass performance is enhanced by two 3″ passive bass radiators. Impressively the audio distortion is minimised at the highest volumes by incorporating Dynamic Range Control and Digital Signal Processing technologies. An easy to use remote control adjusts the volume and acts as a power on/off for use from every corner of your room!
IFA 2017As IFA 2017 comes to a close in Berlin today, we reflect on what was a great few days out there with one of our clients – STM Goods. After arriving on Thursday we spent 4 days on the STM stand showing their fantastic new range (more info coming soon!), and stylish iPhone cases from Element Case.
The plethora of announcements that has come out of IFA the last week has seen robots, pet tech, wareable tech, phones, VR and much more. It gives another glimpse into what we can expect from the future – from Panasonic’s Movable Fridge that is voice responsive and moves around without bumping into children or pets, to Sharp’s 8K TV, to digital assistants in speakers, headphones, phones, lamps and more – the variety of tech on display at IFA was, again, astonishing. Sometimes wacky at times as well (anyone for a massager that is said to get rid of a double chin by vibrating it away if you use it for a minute a day?!), IFA has again provided plenty of launches that will keep the tech world going for a while – until CES in a few months anyway! Keep an eye out for the new launches from STM Goods and Element Case we have coming!

FUZE Code Studio for Nintendo Switch – Learn to Code on Nintendo Switch!We have worked with FUZE Technologies for years and when, in a meeting a few weeks ago, they told us they had been accepted by Nintendo as an independent developer to bring their coding language- FUZE Code Studio – to Nintendo Switch, we knew this was big news.
FUZE have been teaching kids to code since 2013 using the FUZE personal computer and FUZE Code Studio, which is an incredibly accessible and easy to use programming language. FUZE Code Studio motivates and inspires users of all ages and abilities, leaving them wanting to learn more even if they have no prior experience of coding. It is the perfect stepping stone between visual coding simulators currently used in most primary schools and real-world languages like Python, Java and C++/# etc.
It means Nintendo Switch users will be able to code their own games and share the experience with friends and family – imagine creating your own game then transferring it to a big screen with multiple controllers so others can play your creations. Thanks to Nintendo Switch’s revolutionary design this becomes a reality – and coders will soon be learning how to interact with external devices, sensors and motion controls in ways not previously possible.
We announced the news yesterday, and in 24 hours we have secured FUZE coverage on the Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Next Web, Nintendo Life, Geeky Gadgets, Developer, Games Industry, The Verge and many more. The news has gone worldwide reaching far beyond the UK. FUZE Code Studio for Nintendo Switch will be available in Q2 2018. Pricing to be confirmed nearer the launch.
We look forward to continuing to work with FUZE on this incredible development – 2018 will be a fantastic year!
