GOgroove® introduces New BassPULSE 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Speakers
(Westlake Village, Calif) – The BassPULSE 5.1 is the newest addition to the GOgroove® product line and packs a powerful 5.1 surround sound experience, providing users with 360 degrees of audio immersion. The BassPULSE 5.1 features bass, volume, and LED controls. For users with a 5.1 enabled sound card the 5.1 surround sound feature provides a visceral pulse of sound throughout the room, taking gaming, music and movies to the next level.
For gamers, this innovative speaker system widens the audio range and offers directional perception for incoming threats. Immersing gamers in a 3D audio experience, users have the ability to hear someone sneaking up from behind, and can identify which direction gun shots are coming from. The BassPULSE 5.1 allows users to enjoy a new level of awareness that is sure to improve the kill ratios. In addition, gamers are engrossed in a room-filling audio experience, true surround sound audio experience at an affordable price. The BassPULSE 5.1 is also perfect for PC users who just want to enjoy their media with an added level of audio depth.
One of the key features of the BassPULSE 5.1 is the ability to switch from 5.1 surround sound to standard 2.1 for users that want to play music from their phone, TV or other devices. Thanks to the 2.1 mode, this universal sound system can play audio from any device with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. In addition to high-quality sound, setting up the BassPULSE 5.1 speaker is fast and easy (unlike most 5.1 systems on the market). All audio cables are color coded, making setup and installation seamless, hassle-free endeavor.
What sets this speaker system apart is the unique fusion of quality audio and bold aesthetics. With clear, LED illuminated acrylic components and sleek, black knobs and subwoofer housing, the design of the BassPULSE is very eye-catching. When pulse mode is activated, the BassPULSE 5.1’s LEDs will power on and pulsate to heavy bass – further immersing users in their favorite games, movies, and other media. Watching your speaker’s LED lights fire to explosions, gunfire, and other effects is thrilling – and truly something that must be experienced to be understood.
The BassPULSE 5.1 also features 5 neodymium full-range satellite speakers with 5-watts of power in each and a side-firing 10-watt subwoofer making this a fully loaded system. Whether you are an avid computer gamer, someone who enjoys watching movies at your PC, or just want to enjoy your favorite album in surround sound, the BassPULSE 5.1 speaker system is a must-have.

Save your Planet Kids by Adaiah Distribution Inc. – Review


What we love…

teaches even the youngest kids to be eco-friendly; bright clean graphics that help kids identify with recycling

What we’d love to see…

parental gate or no ability to have external social sharing, ability to pick a different paint brush

Summary

Cute app that encourages environmental reminders – my kids are doing better turning off the water when not in use as well as turning off the lights.  I call that a huge win!

Our Rating

Save Your Planet KidsSave your Planet Kids by Adaiah Distribution Inc is a universal app for iOS.  The app features a number of great ideas to help your kids become more eco-friendly including reminders to turn off the water when brushing your teeth, recycling, turning off electronics when not in use, using the washing machine, not wasting resources

As a mom, I feel like I am always walking around turning off lights, closing doors and trying to reduce energy usage.  We have done a number of things including switching our lights to LED, but my kids always seem to leave them on.  I tested this app with my toddler to try and install good habits – as well as good sleep habits.  The app has six different activities on the main screen which remind you about eco friendly ideas and when you complete the task, three birds come up and sing a song.    The app also includes coloring of each of the scenes which you can save to your camera roll.  The app also has settings which allow you to turn on and off narration, and play with the birds to make music.  These are not parental gated.

My toddler’s favorite activity within the app was recycling – this is one of his jobs at home to help me sort out the recycling for our every other week pickup.  I liked that we could practice it within the app – for example newspaper goes in this bin, while cans go in another to help him understand what can and can’t go into the recycle bin.  I also liked the reminders to turn off lights when not in the room – I feel like my older son leaves the lights on all the time.  We actually sat down and talked about energy usage and why it was important to turn off lights and conserve energy.  I also liked that the app had bright clean graphics that were in 3D and very realistic. The reminders contained within the app were sweet and gentle – and provided good reminders without seeming overly pushy to my kids.

In terms of improvements, it would be nice if in the paint section of the app you could choose the size brush that you are using.  Currently, there is only one size brush although there are quite a few different colors.   I also want to see a parental lock on the drawings, you can directly share to social media which is a big downside for me.  I usually turn off social media on my devices when I let kids use them, but parent’s shouldn’t have to remember to do this step.  I would like to see more eco-friendly ideas in the future like encouraging walking instead of driving, making sure the thermostat isn’t too high or low, and perhaps the option for single stream recycling within the app.

Cute app that encourages environmental reminders – my kids are doing better turning off the water when not in use as well as turning off the lights.  I call that a huge win!

Our Rating

Dr. Panda Train All Aboard the latest app from Dr. Panda Games this time with a train theme!  In this fun themed train app your kids serve as conductor and they drive the train and tour one of three landscapes which includes jungle, desert and a beautiful countryside scene.

Within the app, your child can drive the train either from a first person perspective inside the cab or from a distance.  They also can stop and visit the passengers to give them food, snacks, reading material and more.  My son even found some great tech to give the passengers.  Shovel on some coal to stoke the fire and make the train go faster to it’s next destination or simply blow the horn as the countryside goes by.  I liked that my kids could take turns playing with the app or putting passengers on and handing out items to them.  As you complete more of the game you earn extra items to give to the passengers – my kids favorites were of course the tech!    My kids also loved loading the cargo and carrying it from station to station.  While we loaded it we practiced counting or even deciding which item to load first – should we load the jelly beans or the chicken?  What happens if we don’t load any cargo.  I loved their responses which ranged from – “the passengers will be sad” to “will the chicken lay an egg?”  My toddler loved speeding up the train within the app or making it slower which shows cause and effect – although that concept was a bit difficult to explain.  As you get to each station stop, a thought bubble pops up looking for a specific passenger or item to be loaded on the train.  There is a maximum of four passengers, so if you have more, someone extra must exit the train prior to it moving.  Safety first!

As a mom, I loved that there was great role playing – should we be the conductor, the passenger or the person loading the cargo.  Tell me about their job.  What happens if there are too many passengers, how do we decide who gets on?  It was great for storytelling and having my older son describe his actions within the app.  At the station, it was great to unload the cargo and then pass it along to the proper recipients like the pig who wanted the chicken.  Each time you complete a task, you earn additional items to play with in the game which made my kids want to play more and more to see what else they would earn.  There are twelve different train stations throughout.  My son also enjoyed dinging the bell

In terms of enhancements, it would be fun if each passenger had to submit a ticket prior to getting on the train which would get stamped with their destination, currently once they are on the train you can punch the ticket but it does not show the destination.  That way, kids could prepare for which station they are getting off at.  My son also wanted to “back up” the train a few times to go back and look at scenery or to pick up something he might have missed.  I would also love to see other methods for powering the train – perhaps it could be electric and run on above ground power like the T does in Boston or maybe it could run like the subway does with a third rail.  My kids also thought it would be fun if each of the train stops coincided with other Dr. Panda Games like Daycare, Firefighter, Home etc.

There are no in-app purchases and there is a parental gate which requires year of birth.  You can turn off a splash screen which advertises other Dr. Panda apps in the parent area as well as turn on and off music and sound.

Super fun train themed app that kept my toddler enthralled for hours.  He kept finding little secret items and enjoyed loading and off loading the cargo.  Bravo Dr. Panda – or should that be Toot Toot!  Can’t wait to see what else you have planned in the future.
