This also works for podcasters who records at different times of the day. Whether you’re shooting at night and needs a good lighting or during the day and needs a good lighting to balance the sun, GiSTEQ’s LED light panel will be a great addition that will help make your podcast better.

If you want your subject to stand out from the background and wanted a hair light, GiSTEQ’s Flashmate F-198A allows you to adjust your spread from a spot to a wide by simply adjusting the dial.

If you play Call of Duty, Halo, Tom Clancy or another first shooter game, the Hipshotdot is an item that will help your gaming. Its not a controller, in fact it was in replacement of the tape you might put on your TV. Hipshotdot is a LED light attached on a suction cup which will replace the tape trick.

I pulled up Call of Duty First Strike on my iPad to get an idea of what this product does. The Hipshotdot works better on larger televisions. Now you will have a guide to where you are going to shoot.

Newer TVs will stick right on, older monitors are a little more porous. An adapter on the TV will keep the adjoining cable straight. On larger televisions, the wire will disappear when gaming.

HipShotDot is machine agnostic, so it will work on XBox, Playstation, NES or PC gaming. If you need to improve your first person shooting ability, you can get HipShotDot right now for $29.95. Product will be in many box stores and online at  airdropgaming.com

This is what happens when you let engineers ask “What if”. The question was if they could build an LED light that could project 15,000 lumens. The answer – yes!

The Maelstrom Xm18 by FourSevens is a LED light with three settings – 600, 3,000 and 15,000 lumens. There is even a strobe feature for emergency or dancing.

The XM18 is battery driven. 26 – 18650 cells with fan cooling and aluminum heat sink. The light can get so hot that if it turned on during transport the case would melt. That is why FourSevens set up a two-point on switch.

The FourSevens XM18 Maelstrom costs $2,399. Other flashlights start at $23.99 (www.foursevens.com)
