The Giz Wiz and the Cheap Webcam

Dick

Episode 1798

This week's gadget from Dickie D is a cheap 2K webcam from China. Said to be a true 2K - 2560 X 1440, 30Fps per second obviously should be better than 1080P. These inexpensive webcams all seem to have wide-angle lenses; one mentions 105 & another 110 degrees. Note that they are fixed non-zoom lenses. But wait, there's more! The two webcams I bought came with a free privacy cover & tripod!

The first is a backlit Mini Wireless Keyboard + Touchpad + Mouse with Laser Pointer by ETopBest. Plugin the 2.4 GHz computer, charge the mini keyboard and it's ready. But you'll have to turn it on, too. It also has a sleep mode to save battery, some really nice LED backlighting with a choice of colors, and even a laser pointer. The small design makes it easy to hold by hand and it is small enough to slip into a pocket. Powered by a 450 mAh Lithium-ion battery. Price as of 5/6/21 is about $24.

Episode 1790

This week's gadget is the ZoVox AccuVoice, which makes the dialogue in old movies understandable again. It's different from other voice boosting systems that focus on equalization. AccuVoice combines compression, consonant-range boost, formant enhancement, minimization of bass output -- plus other proprietary techniques they prefer not to divulge. The AV157 uses 12 levels of dialogue boost – 6 stages of AccuVoice boost plus 6 stages of their new SuperVoice technology.

It has three height adjustments: 3.9" -- 4.7" -and 5.5". You can use it for other gadgets too. On a desk you can raise your computer monitor to eye level for better posture.
