Now here's an ingenious idea: a Bluetooth-capable AA battery you can control with your smartphone. The gadget debuted way back in 2013 at CES , then went to Indiegogo for a successful crowdfunding campaign (with early backers paying a hefty $55 -- plus shipping -- for a single pair). Today you can buy a pair of Tethercells for $44. 99, plus $3 for shipping. Or less, if you're willing to wait a bit: StackSocial has a Tethercell Bluetooth battery two-pack for $24. 49, shipped. I've spoken with these guys about why their turnaround times are so long, and they assure me they're working on it. Partially it's the nature of how they work with vendors to get low prices on really cool products. The Tethercell itself is a Bluetooth-friendly, smartphone-controlled module designed to fit anywhere a standard AA battery can. Yes, that means you'll get slightly less runtime from whatever device is using the Tethercell, though if it's something that can accommodate more than one battery (like, say, an Xbox controller), you need only one Tethercell in the group. Once paired with your Android or iOS device, the Tethercell (and whatever device it's in, natch) can be switched on or off remotely, put on a schedule, and monitored for overall battery life. It's too bad there's no 9-volt version of this, because that's what pretty much every smoke alarm uses -- and this would be awesome for that.
Before we begin looking at our options for equipment and antennas, let’s review some of the FCC’s basic translator rules, since our system design will by necessity have to fit within their guidelines. • If the translator is a fill-in translator, the ERP may be further limited by the need to maintain the translator’s service contour within the primary station’s service contour. • A commercial fill-in translator may receive a primary station’s signal via any terrestrial transmission method, including (but not limited to) microwave, phone, Internet and dedicated fiber optic cable. • A noncommercial educational FM translator, commonly owned with the primary station, may deliver the signal to the translator by any means, including satellite delivery. • The translator must be configured to go off the air if the main station’s signal is lost. and if the translator site cannot be reached at all hours and all seasons, means shall be provided so that the transmitting apparatus can be turned on and off at will from a point that is readily accessible during all hours and all seasons. In terms of system design, delivery of the signal to be translated is probably the most difficult part. Also, though it is common knowledge that the translator must go off in the event that the “main” station goes.
This year the theme was the 80s. And while some of the devices on display have probably been vaporware since the time that day-glo ruled world, we’re pretty sure we found six items that stood out. The Ditto is a notification device that you pair with your iOS or Android device. If you’re swimming, in the shower, charging your device or just hate having to walk around the house with your smart phone the Ditto can be clipped to your clothing and you’ll always know when that someone special is trying to get a hold of you.
