The Voltaire Smart Grinder was a Kickstarter project by Get It Right with a lofty project statement. "Making fresh coffee is as much an art as it is a science. And truly awesome coffee starts with two things: fresh beans and a great grinder. We've taken these two critical elements - fresh beans and consistent grind - and combined them into one amazing machine: Voltaire."
The Voltaire Grinder can be paired with an airtight container (for storage of grounded coffee). Both the grinder and container can become "smart" with the addition of a sensing platform that is design to keep track of how fresh the coffee beans are, and how much there is left in the hopper or past their prime and re-order on your behalf.
So, how did we go?
We have all heard horror stories about babies and children that won't fall asleep, or waking every hour, needed to be held, hugged, breastfed, walked around, rocked in order to etch out a little more zzz. I certainly know how it feels night after night after night, resettling my boys every hour or two, trying to get them to stay asleep and allow me to put them down so I can snatch a few precious minutes myself before my day starts.
Glow Dreaming claims to help children struggling with separation anxiety, self-settling, night terrors, teething, transitioning, delayed sleep, dream feeding, multiple wakes, days sleeps and co sleeping.
Well, I have children at different stages of life, so I took the plunge and bought one.
And of course I just had to share my experience with our DigitalReview readers.
The humble light bulb has undergone a dramatic series of changes in the last decade or so. Incandescents are out, so are fluros and CFL. Even just LED lights are humdrum items. In are the smart lights that can illuminate your indoor and outdoor world in 16 million colours.
Philips just launched a couple of outdoor units, the Lily spotlight and the Calla bollard. Both work in the Hue ecosystem.
We’re shining some light on them in this review.
Anson Belt was kind enough to send me one of their "belts without holes" set to review.
Writing an article about belts for me would be a travesty if I don't include a little background. I have a love hate relationship with belts, generally more hate than love although there was a period of peace and prosperity.
Most of us fly regularly and need to take along all the essentials to keep ourselves looking good and fresh for several weeks and carry our electronic friends along as well.
That’s requirement Number One: lightweight travel gear so that we can maximise our luggage allowance.
But it also has to be strong, durable and good looking.
That’s why we again looked at Travelon gear for this year’s line-up of different pieces of luggage.
How often do parents check up on their newborns? Most new parents want to be able to check on how bub is doing without disturbing their sleep – or interrupting their own to see if their baby is still sound asleep.
Fortunately, technology can come to the rescue in a very unobtrusive way via the Owlet Smart Sock, a baby monitor that tracks heart rate and oxygen levels constantly and let you know if anything is amiss.
Let’s hear from Karma, one of our writers whose son Asher was born 6 weeks ago.
These are her findings below:
Spoiler Alert: We’re giving you our recommendation first and the reasons why down below.
This Victa 82V Cordless Mower receives our highest praise: the Editor’s Choice Award.
Actually, because the other two Victa products in their 82V range also received our Highly Recommended rating, we would not hesitate to give our Editor’s Choice acclamation to the whole 82V product line because, more than just individual tools, they are a complete system.
So you reckon this Victa can nicely mow your typical suburban front lawn?
Sure, but when you see what else we have subjected this machine to, you’d be convinced that this is one heck of a powerful beast!
