Intel Play Sound Morpher

Designed for children aged six and above, the Sound Morpher can be carried with you wherever you go and will capture sounds with the press of a button. It can also be used as a sinister spy tool, since the range and clarity of the microphone is quite good.

The unit will record for up to four minutes before running out of storage capacity, but you can download audio to the PC using your sound card's microphone jack and the supplied software. The software is probably the most fun part of the package: you can apply filters to sounds you record, to make friends or foes sound like monsters or other weird creatures. The software facilitates sound editing and can read aloud in a computerised voice any text that you type. Parents will be glad to know that extreme curse words are not tolerated by the program and are immediately deleted.

The sound editing functions of the program include adding effects and various filters to sounds recorded by the Morpher. Cutting and pasting is also facilitated, while markers at the start and end of each beat are placed to make sound remixing less of a chore. The program can also import other uncompressed sound files that may be on your system.

The Sound Morpher is a solid device that seems rugged enough to withstand child's play and is a good introduction to the wonderful world of sound editing. It takes three AAA batteries, not included, and comes with a connector cable, a pair of headphones and a belt-clip.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
