Thanko - High-power portable headphone amplifier with 5000mAh mobile battery function

Thanko has released a portable device that combines a 5,000mAh mobile battery and 680mw+680mw high-power headphone amplifier for ¥34,800.

Even with high-end headphones, once you connect the headphones to a smartphone or music player, you are not able to hear music in optimum sound quality. The output of those devices cannot maximize the potential of quality headphones.

Thanko - Ultraminiature action camera anywhere you want

Thanko's new miniature camera can be installed anywhere you want.

For example, by attaching it on a radio-controlled plane, glasses, helmet, and even your dog's collar, you can record unique motion movies.

It's able to shoot high-quality 30fps movies (1280×720, H.264 codec) and photos (5200×3900). The motion detection function is perfect when in use as a surveillance camera.

The camera is controllable with the accompanying tiny remote control.
