I’d personally like to direct you to what I’ve been working with some lately, which are LED video matrix walls. Whatever kind of budget you want to throw at it would be fun to see how it turns out for gaming and other applications. I mean, how many people have been to a concert lately and thought, but can that giant screen run Minecraft?

Hey guys,

Just want some community feedback on this. Most of these things are already in the queue to some degree. Just trying to prioritize...

Seeing some more server stuff would be awesome. Honestly my favorite videos of yours are the server ones, I have probably watched the entire server room update playlist 6 or 7 times

How about a review and comparison of some consumer grade home NAS?

So I was browsing Kickstarter, and I saw this.

Another motion-activated charger, like this old one.

Maybe you could see if their tech is any better? (I know, it probably won't happen for forever because it's kickstarter...)

Also this speaker is insane, and would work well with your "12K" projector setup - potentially. (Also kickstarter)



But wait, there's more!

Now, I'm not sure if you've seen this thing, but it's pretty cool. You guys should definitely check it out. (Smart Home Hub/Alarm Clock/Youtube Sub Counter/Twitter Follower Counter/Much More)

 


https://chargetech.com/product/portable-power-outlet/
27,000mAh battery bank... but the best thing about it is... it has an AC adapter! This means it can charge your laptop, or other low-power-draw AC devices.

*Deep breath*

Another magnetic charging cable, which is apparently decent. You'll love it, it's got gold-plated connectors ;)

A sunrise alarm clock, because who doesn't love waking up with the (simulated) sun? It's also good for you, if you care about that.

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01ET1OTV6/
Levitating bluetooth speaker - and it's Star Wars. What's not to love?

Whew, the list is done. (Note: All amazon links to amazon.ca, for your convenience. :))

I know you are looking for recommendations, but I do have a request to remove something. I personally don’t find interest in the ergonomic keyboard videos.

The budget series is a good watch, but It’s not frequent enough. My biggest recommendation is definitely a weekly “LMG just got a _____ from massdrop! Is it any good?” Video series. Many interesting things are from massdrop, and its always fun to see exclusive new items that are cheap being reveiwed.

 

If you do end up reading this, I would like to thank you for listening to my feedback. It means a lot, especially as someone that does not frequently have a say in many things that I do.

 

Keep the content strong!

I personally second this. Very good idea. Speaking of consumer grade, I feel as if many OEM machines and many typical consumer purchases tend to stay away from the produced content. Hell, budget laptops are always interesting and I would like to see much more content on laptops in the very low price range, weather  they be chrome books, MacBooks, or windows laptops, I hope that more content can be made on these devices.

 

another personal thank you for reaching out to the community for ideas and help. Feels good to have a say.

I was looking for a new office chair, right around the time your first gaming chair video came out. I honestly didn't know there was such a big market for "gaming" chairs. But I LOVE the chair that I bought shortly after your review. It'd be nice if you reviewed some other options to prove (or disprove) the maxnomic chair is superior.

 

TL;DR MOAR GAMING CHAIRS KTHXBYE

I bought 3 other "Gaming/Office" style chairs in the $300-350 range, and returned them all. I bought a Maxnomic Office Comfort chair and haven't looked back. 

They're simply superior to the other options in the same price range.

FuzeDrive for RYZEN 

http://www.enmotus.com/amd

 

It makes all of your drives appear as 1 drive to the OS & migrates frequently used data to faster drives like a hybrid drive. The best part is that you don't have to reformat to use it. 

 

I think I want to buy this, but I want an honest review of it first.

I think you should do Smart Tampon Technology. I could swear I remember an old WAN show discussing the smart phone device that does sperm count, so I think you should expand and include women's health issues too.

 

I didn't know it was a thing until recently, thanks to your most recent video.

Not to entirely popular topic on Google searching, but I'm sure you guys have people in industry.

Being a little sarcastic, but I think it would be cool to see you guys pull it off.

Just saw this on Engadget and thought it would be a neat update to the DIY speakers from a year ago...  Would be neat to see if a $190.00 development board and a Raspberry Pi makes for as good of an experience as a pre-built speaker system.

 

Make your own WiFi/Bluetooth speakers from a set of non-connected speakers:
