Best Smart Phone Mount Ever

I have used the Mountek CD mount for my iPhone 6 Plus for over a year now, and it has been the best mount I have ever bought. Now the company is coming out with a new version that will allow you to mount just about any device you may need, such as a GPS, GoPro, iPad, satellite radio, or almost any device you have. My car looks like the interior of a modern jet, with all my gadgets mounted, and this CD mount is a great addition, and a great use for an otherwise unused slot in my car. Really, who plays Cd’s anymore? The only complaint I have heard, is that when mounted, the device potentially could cover up something else you want to be able to see, such as the display for your radio, but this has not been an issue for me and was a small price to pay for such a cool mount!

View-Master VR Viewer

VR or Virtual Reality viewers, are gaining popularity, mainly because of a product from Google called, “Google Cardboard”. In a nutshell, Google has made getting into “Virtual Reality” in a simple, fun, and affordable way.  They make apps that let anyone explore virtual reality, in a variety of creative and fun ways. There are a lot of companies who make Google Cardboard viewers, which are literally made of cardboard, that let you experience these adventures, without spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars it used to cost, just a short time ago. These cardboard viewers are available all over, and simply stated, they let you drop your smartphone in, and start playing with these virtual worlds! Most cost around $20 but savvy shoppers can find them for even less.

I personally came across a product called the View-Master® by Mattel, and what initially impressed me most about their “VR Viewer” is the quality of the viewer, when compared to the cardboard versions I had been looking at before. I was able to find it for around $20 also, so it was an easy decision to give this one a try. The good news is, this viewer is compatible with all of the VR apps, and Google Cardboard apps, that are available for your smartphone, and believe me, it’s addictive and very fun.

Interestingly, they were the original creators of the View-Master®, which if you had one as a kid, was a pretty cool technology for its time, that let you view 3D images, and it was pretty cool! Well, now it’s still 3D imaging, but a lot more immersive. They do make a product that still looks almost identical to the original round reels that were made for the original View-Master®. These new digital versions, while they look very similar to the old ones, are a whole new experience. They call them “experience packs” and they are very cool, but a little pricey, when compared to the many free Google Cardboard apps. At the time of my purchase, they were going from between $10 and $16 dollars, and I suppose these will be great experiences, and educational for kids especially. It’s very cool that the viewer can work with all the apps, and the uses will be amazing!

If you have heard of these “Virtual Worlds” and want to dive in, I highly recommend the View-Master® to get started, and if you want the higher end versions, check out products like the Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR, which is powered by Oculus Rift.
