Texas Does The Time Warp Again at FAN EXPO DALLAS

by on January 30th, 2017

The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Meat Loaf will reunite at FAN EXPO DALLAS 2017 located in downtown Dallas for Three Days.

The FAN EXPO DALLASis March 31st through April 2nd at the Dallas Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.

The FAN EXPO DALLAS show will be Stan Lee’s last Texas appearance as well so this show should be EPIC! If you are interested in getting a photo op or autograph the fees are $120.00 for each not for both. I suggest checking the schedule beforehand so you know when the photo ops and autograph sessions are happening.

I went last year and had a blast…as much as you can with little boys and teenage boys poking you in the behind with their light sabers. I have gone in total to 4 Comic Cons / FAN EXPOs overthe last year and each one boast more technology than the previous show (except for Silicon Valley).

I just submitted my press credentials to attend this years FAN EXPO DALLAS and very excited about the cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show being there. Hopefully I will be approved and will be on ground zero throughout the show updating you all via my twitterand my Youtube channel. Continue Reading…

CT BAND – Turn Your Classic Watch Into a Smart Watch

by on January 24th, 2017

Combining elegance with technology is no easy task. I was intrigued to learn about the smart strap called “CT BAND“that gives intelligence (smart watches features) to all classic watches by simply attaching it to the watch dial.

Wait…WHAT!?

How amazing is it to make any of your watches into smart watches?! Instead of buying a separate fitness tracker that clearly does not look as nice as a watch the CT BAND fits that void so you have both in one. It allows you to enjoy the sensors and features of a smart watch while keeping the elegance and expertise of traditional watchmaking.

How does it work?

With its panel of physiological and environmental sensors, CT BAND uses cutting edge electronics technologies (several patents pending). The CT BAND mobile app allows you to analyze at any time the data gathered on the strap. Notifications received on your smartphone and/or tablet are directly available on your strap through a screen pop-up.

The CT BAND comes with 3D Accelerometer, Bluetooth connectivity, Physiological sensors, Environmental sensors and a Microphone. It’s battery life is 24-48 hours and takes an hour to charge. The CT Band smart strap synchronizes with most tablets and smartphones using either Android or IOS and it’s sync range is 10 to 20 meters.

The CT BAND is available in 3 finishes – silicone, leather, stitched-leather with 7 different colors. CT BAND is available for pre-order on Byrifft.com for $149.00 and for more information about the CT BAND click here.

I think this is an awesome product and concept but I haven’t tested it yet. Hopefully they will send me one to review for Cutegeek or Hi-Tech Chic in 2017!
