So, we had the opportunity to review two products from OAXIS, a company that we have not reported on in the past. Just from what I can find on their website, the company of OAXIS is an Asian company started in 2010, and the name is derived from “oasis”. This is a company that wants to be something good in a technological desert, and we reviewed the innovative products of myFirst Camera Insta 2 and the myFirst Headphones BC Wireless.
OAXIS myFirst Camera Insta 2 Review
Granted, most young hands might have their own smartphone or tablet to take pictures, but I have to hand it to the myFirst Camera Insta 2 to be made for the tiniest of hands. You can see that its shape here looks like of like a blue panda bear (it also comes in pink, by the way).
One thing that is interesting is how the myFirst Camera Insta 2 can print out pictures. Now, it only prints them out in black and white, but hey, you can put those pics somewhere. You know, maybe start your young kids’ monochromatic scrapbook. Since you can essentially do unlimited printing, you can use this camera for a few years before the kid discovers how to use a printer on the computer, in color!
So, how does this thing work with the paper and all that? Well, just use thermal paper of the adequate size. Oh, and the camera includes 3 rolls which can shoot about 80 pics each, so it starts with 240 shots. It also comes with a charging cord with a lot of interesting adapters, not to mention a 1 GB SD card (the camera can handle up to 32 GB).
The Insta 2 has a 12 Megapixel camera as well as a dual lens. It even comes with a way to do selfies by turning the camera around, not to mention videos.
If the myFirst Camera Insta 2 is right for you, head on over to the OAXIS site and lay down $99.90 here.
OAXIS myFirst Headphones Review BC Wireless
Okay, so it seems that kids are getting their own smartphones at younger ages, so it makes sense to give them a pair of wireless earbuds of their own. Generally, when we have encountered headphones designed for the littlest of ears, they always have a limit to their volume. This would appear to be the case with these, as I am told that “audio is set to appropriate volume”.
Here’s another unique quality of the myFirst Headphones BC Wireless: they use bone conduction. If you aren’t familiar with that, it is a way of transmitting sound through the skin, and the company that is well known for that is Aftershokz. The myFirst Headphones put the sound so it transmits via the cheekbones, and the sound is very good.
These headphones are super lightweight at 26 grams, and they are IPX6 water resistant, which I am told means it can resist sprays of water and possibly be submerged to 1 meter. It is good for some kiddie pool time play, just not at the deep end.
So how long will the battery last? We’re looking at about 5 hours of playtime, and 20 days of battery life. The charging cord is unusual with a USB and an odd magnetic connection.
Now, I am told that these myFirst Headphones BC Wireless will match perfectly with the myFirst Fone R1, a product which will have music-playing capability. That Fone R1 is not available as yet, but the myFirst Headphones is available on the OAXIS website for $79.90.
