Samsung-S-Ray-Portable-Directional-Speaker-Set-new

Samsung has released quite a few interesting projects over the years, and this year at CES they’re going to be revealing a few more. C-Lab (the Samsung Creative Lab program) is unveiling a portable, directional speaker set called S-Ray that aims to give you private listening without actually having to put anything in or over your ears. S-Ray does this with a combination of two small speakers dubbed Mini and Handy, along with the Neck Bend, a sci-fi kind of speaker device you wear around your neck. Each of the pieces in the collection is designed to use directional audio to play your music, movies or games without having to wear headphones and also without disturbing the people around you. The biggest problem with devices like this is they normally lack the bass oomph you’d find in the products they’re designed to replace, so here’s hoping Samsung managed to mitigate that with S-Ray because we’d love the ability to use something like this on a bicycle.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
