NudeAudio Super-M

superm.jpg

We've come a very very long way since the days of boomboxes and bags filled with D-cell batteries and that is more than evident in the latest speaker from NudeAudio, the Super-M.

The compact pocket-able Bluetooth speaker is no slouch in the audio department. It houses four full-range neodymium drivers on both sides of the device and two passive radiators. Those drivers are also coupled with amplifiers and a lithium-ion battery that will have you going for eight hours of playback. It also doubles as a speakerphone and has an IPX-5 rating meaning its water and sand-proof.

If you've ever used a stylus on your tablet you know how annoying and unnatural those rubber tips are when you're writing or drawing on a glass screen. Just Mobile's new AluPen fixes that with an ultra-fine tip that feels just like a regular ol' ballpoint.

There's no Bluetooth pairing needed or any proprietary apps that the AluPen is locked down to. They've kept it extra simple so you can use it on any app with any capacitive tablet. The AluPen uses charge amplifying circuitry that is powered by a single AAA battery to keep things precise and allows the pen to use the ultrafine (and retractable) nib.
