The ES-LV6N shaver by Panasonic ushers in a completely redesigned Multi-Flex 3D pivoting head that allows three-dimensional movement of the shaver. Such exceptional flexibility makes sure the blades closely follow the contour of your face, jawline and neck, leaving the skin extra smooth. A special friction-reducing roller helps the shaving head turn and move sideways as it glides across the skin. Underneath the head hides a five-blade cutting system that captures and cuts even the toughest and most resistant hairs.
The Tenda AC9, a new dual-band, gigabyte wireless router, provides its users with 802.11 ac Wi-Fi connectivity. The model is fitted with a Broadcom ARM Cortex-A7 processor backed with 128 MB DDR3 memory for optimal performance on the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies. Offering a data transfer speed of 1,167 Mbps, the router is ideal for HD streaming and online gaming. The device comes with high-gain antennas and Beamforming+ technology to reduce interference from other radio devices.
Capture the Moment
The OM-D E-M1 Mark II, the newest mirrorless camera from Olympus, offers the best picture quality and fastest operation in its market segment, according to the producer. The camera comes with a phase-detection, cross-type autofocus that uses its own processor to close in on photographed objects. When switched to a silent mode with continuous autofocus, the camera can capture RAW-format pictures with a resolution of 20.4 megapixels at 18 frames per second, which is the fastest rate in this class of cameras. With the autofocus locked, the capture rate increases to 60 fps.
The new Olympus camera is available in a body-only package or as a set with a M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40 mm 1:2.8 Pro lens.
Fiat Fullback 2.4 JTD 4X4: A Pickup for Tough Guys
Italian automaker Fiat last year joined forces with Japanís Mitsubishi to unveil a pickup truck called Fullback. Based on the Mitsubishi L200, the vehicle is 5.28 meters long and has a 3-meter wheelbase. It is available in either a two- or four-door version, with a single or double cab (pictured). Its cargo space has a maximum capacity of 1,100 kilograms.
The pickup is powered by a 2.4-liter/180 hp diesel engine with a maximum torque of 380Nm in the 1,500-1,800 rpm range. On roads with a good surface, the Fullback runs as a rear-wheel drive, but it switches automatically to 4x4 mode on slippery roads and off-road. You can also switch between the modes manually by using a knob near the gear stick.
