Easythreed Nano 3D Printer on sale at Gearbest

3/18/2019 03:54:00 PM 0
The Easythreed Nano is an entry level 3D Printer usually selling around 150$ and way over 300$ when branded as Polaroid P2C10002!

The Nano has a decent reputation as a 3D printer for beginners. Even then, I was not sure if it was the best pick in that price range...
But it is now on Flash Sale at Gearbest (99$ at time of writing!) and I hardly see anything beating that!

Gearbest Easythreed Nano

Note: the white version is available at the same price. (I took the orange so I can still make the difference with my bread maker.)

I don't expect any side windows included for that price, but they are not necessary and can be purchased separately.

Expect a review here soon!

My old X10 equipment is being replaced with the cheap Wi-Fi-based sockets and switches from Sonoff and Tuya.

Before learning the difference between these competitors, I found myself with a mix of both "standards"...

Health watches vs FDA-approved monitors: part 1, the P9

2/06/2019 05:55:00 PM 0

Many smart watches now include a blood pressure sensor and some even measure your oxygen saturation like real oximeters.

But how do these cheap watches compare with FDA-approved devices?

This is the first part where I try a watch claiming to monitor the SpO2 level (Oxygen saturation level)

This phone caught my attention with its generous specification: FullSurface 19:9 notch display, dual cameras, 64GB ROM, NFC, fingerprint sensor, wireless and fast charging for less than 150€/170$.

Is it too good to be true?
