This sound dock is great. It comes with a remote, which is fairly easy to use. Yes, it's a little pricey, but you're getting really good sound quality for the price. Like most speaker docks, this charges your iOS device as well as plays it. It isn't bluetooth enabled though. It has an auxiliary input on the back for non-ios devices. A word of...

The bone conduction headphones made by aftershokz have many applications where one must still have virtually unobstructed hearing: cyclists, joggers, folks who are blind or visually impaired using audio devices for anynumber of reasons, or people who simply want to listen to music privately yet still be able to hear what is happening around...

The Focus 14 is a very portable display, about the size of a Braille Pen, but it sports 2 more cells than the Pen, along with a slightly higher price tag than the Braille Pen, but that won't be the case for long.Instead of wizwheels, you have a rocker button located at each end of the display that you can press up to move up or down to move...

The Perkins mini is a 16 cell display that works with Windows screen readers and mac OSX 10.7 and later. It's also compatible with iOS from 6.0 on. It has both USB and bluetooth capabilities, and also has very similar functions to the Braille Edge. It can take notes, read books, has a calendar, a calculator and supports the reading of brf and...

The Braille Edge 40 is a braille display that I'd like to call a smart display. This is because, while it is a braille display, it also has the ability to take notes independently, has a calendar, time and date, and calculator. It also has the ability to load and save files on an SD card, which can then obviously be used to transfer files from...

The Brailliant 32, which is the smallest in a line of 3 new displays from Humanware works well with iDevices running iOS 5.1 and later. This review pertains specifically to the 32 cell model, though the operation on the 40 and 80 cell models should be similar. It's a very sleek design for a 32 cell model display, but the sleeve it comes with...

The Braille Connect 40 is no longer being sold. 
The Braille Connect 40 has the keys in a letter v shape which forces the elbows out slightly. I couldn't type on my unit the first day I received it, but somehow I became accustomed to the layout by the next  day. I understand the new modells have a horizontal layout.

I thought that...

This is one of the most handy things I use with my iPhone. It is a very small braille display, perfect for mobile privacy. Unlike the other popular mini display at the time (the braille pen 12) this device has routing buttons, something I believe to be necesary. It also has a five-function "joystick" that enables quick use of the functions like...

AirStash looks like a normal pendrive: rectangular shape, with a cover that must be removed from the bottom side, to reveal the USB connector, and inserted again if USB is not used.
In the middle there is the button, the unique button, used to turn wi-fi mode on and off.
The top side has a slot for a normal SD card, it supports...

The Line6 Mobile In Continues the jaw dropping concept of all this? from your pocket?

though it's outer casing is made of plastic, it feels pretty stirty. About the size and feel of a Compact Flash CF Card Case, it has two 8th inch input jacks: (Stereo Line in, and instrument level) on the front, and a doc connector on the rear. It's...
