The Wacom Bamboo Slate is a smart drawing pad.

Based on the company's Electro Magnetic Resonance pen technology and the Wacom Ink Layer Language (Will), it allows users to draw with the included pen on any paper that is resting on the smartpad.

A push of a button converts these sketches and drawings into digital files that are saved into the Wacom Inkspace app (Android and iOS). The Slate is available in A5 and A4 sizes.


Razer Power Bank

POWER BANK

Pricing and availability to be confirmed

Designed specially to extend the battery life of Razer's 12.5-inch Blade Stealth laptop by up to six hours, this 12,800mAh power bank boasts two USB-A output ports and a USB-C output port for charging three devices at the same time.

It can identify the type of device being charged and regulates the current accordingly. For example, if a device that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 is plugged in, it will be charged four times faster than normal devices.


D-Link DSH-C310 Omna

IP CAMERA

$329

Supporting Apple's HomeKit eco-system, D-Link's Omna 180 HD camera lets you keep an eye on your baby or pet at home, by using your iOS device and from anywhere as long as you are online.

In addition, you can configure the camera to send you a notification if any activity is detected in the house. Unlike most home IP cameras that provide a viewing angle of 120 degrees, the Omna gives you a much wider 180-degree view.

WIRELESS EARPHONES

These are the sporty wireless earphones iPhone 7 users have been waiting for. The BeatsX comes with the Apple W1 chip - found in Apple's AirPods - that allows for easy one-step Bluetooth connection with the iPhone 7 or any iOS 10 devices.

It comes with four eartips of different sizes as well as removable wingtips, so you can get the most comfortable and secure fit.

Its battery is supposed to last 8hr after just 45min of charging via the included Lightning cable.
