Arctic S111 BT is a new product from Arctic that offers gadget fans a way to easily produce sound system quality sounds for their phone, tablet or other Bluetooth enabled device on the go. The speakers feature a great design that is small, lightweight and looks amazing. The speakers are easy to use and sound great more importantly, and owners can easily move the speakers along with their devices thanks to a hard case that comes packed in the overall package. The Arctic S111 BT even come with a two-year warranty; now that's a good deal!

The Arctic S111 BT is currently available in five different colors--black, white, blue, pink and lime green. The speakers measure 2.8" inches in any direction, and the square speakers weigh just over a pound, so they're easy to use anywhere and pick up and bring along with mobile devices. The Arctic S111 BT also includes a lithium ion battery that can power the speakers for up to 12 consecutive hours. The device connects via USB to charge and can fully do so in just a few hours. Fans will love their new set of speakers for the stylish and practical design featured with the Arctic S111 BT.

We enjoyed testing the Arctic S111 BT Bluetooth Sound System. The device was incredibly easy to set up and use. The speakers are lightweight and easy to carry around to different rooms or when leaving home. The power button is located on the back of the speakers and can be held in for a few seconds to allow the speakers to search for compatible Bluetooth devices. The speakers connect in second, and are ready to play right away. Right above the power button are several buttons used to adjust volume and other settings. It's really easy for owners to get the Arctic S111 BT to appropriate bass, treble and overall volume settings. It's worth noting that the speakers connect wirelessly, but the speakers are connected with a wire that only allows the two speakers to be separated by about a foot and a half.

The sounds produced by the Arctic S111 BT are high quality to be sure. Despite the speakers small size, the devices are capable of producing booming bass and the other sounds are crystal clear. Music fans will be completely satisfied with the sound production from the Arctic S111 BT, but the speakers are also useful for watching movies, streaming video content and playing games on Bluetooth devices. The ease of use, great design and low price range makes the Arctic S111 BT Bluetooth Sound System a difficult product to pass up. Fans can purchase the device for only $29.99 on Amazon today.

On the heels of Vaavud’s second successfully crowdfunded project for a wind meter that detects wind speed and wind direction, Vaavud: Sleipnir, the brand continues to revolutionize the wind meter industry by changing the often very granular weather forecasts that sailors, kite surfers, paragliders, pilots, farmers and the like use today. By analyzing the data gathered by all Vaavud users, Vaavud can create ultra-local, short-term forecasts and present the results in a clear and easily comprehensible way. The addition of Facebook sharing on the Vaavud app makes this commitment to accuracy possible by creating a platform for all adventure seekers to share their wind readings with any other Facebook user in the world. The user simply clicks the “share” button within the Vaavud app and an update to Facebook including an optional photo and the measured wind speed will appear. “Weather is inherently social,” says Thomas Helms, CEO and co-founder of Vaavud. “People constantly update their social feeds based on what the weather is doing and Facebook, being the largest social media platform in the world, is the perfect tool for any Vaavud user to share the weather conditions they encounter with the rest of the world.”

The Vaavud app is available for both iOS and Android and is compatible with the soon-to-be released generation two model, Vaavud: Sleinpir. The app features a quick way to share location-based weather conditions while delivering a clear overview of average, actual and maximum wind speeds, wind direction and the world’s first real-time graph on a handheld wind meter. The live map gives users access to measurements made by other Vaavud users globally and your personal measurement log is accessible from any mobile device.
