After a long summer break, the Dot Com Lunch is back! However, summer have not only decided to stick around, it decided to set some record high temperatures as well. This forced us to eat inside Pho Ba Co, which is a rare event indeed.
Dining indoor did offered me an opportunity to demo the effectiveness of the Sennheiser EW112P G3 mic system that I use to record each episode. The most important element of video is audio, and once you hear the difference between Sennheiser and no Sennheiser, you’ll understand why this mic cost nearly $700.
This episode of the Dot Com Lunch also featured the POC Octal bike helmet. As you’ll recall, I crashed my bike and broke my helmet a couple of months ago. The replacement Octal is the most advanced bike helmet in the world.
The Octal comes with a QR code attached to the ICEdot emergency identification and notification system. First responders need only to scan the QR code to get all my emergency information. There’s even an optional crash sensor that sense when you crash and then SMS text your emergency contacts. It’s like OnStar for bikes! As you no doubt guessed by the title of this blog post, the Octal is not cheap. Then again, how much is your head worth?
