An Epic Day outdoors -@indiBlogger #flipkartOutdoors

SHARE if you like what you see

So we were part of an exclusive group of bloggers in the #flipkartOutdoors @ Mango Mist resort organized by Indiblogger. It was fun meeting the usual gang and the new faces as well.  What set it apart was of course the outdoor meet which I feel is so much more better than the closed door ones (but no #Indiblogger meet is ever boring, outdoors or indoors :D). Anyways what also set our expectations was the chance to use/check the latest savvy gadgets available for outdoor purpose.  Check it out and go greeeeeeennnn with envy

  1. Altec Lansing (not part of usage)
    • Bluetooth headphones with lock that does not leave your ear no matter how much you shake your head.  There was this challenge of loosening the headphones without using hands in 10 secs.  There were a couple who did win but they had to shake their heads like they were possessed 🙂

  • Their beauty was the outdoorsy bluetooth speaker which was demo-ed with water and you could see the water drops jumping with the beat

2. Red Chief shoes (Yes I wore it for the entire duration)

  • Biodegradable shoes made from the carcasses of old shoes including the soles.  I am not generally a big fan of outdoor shoes because it’s heavy but this one surprised me with its rugged look but surprisingly light

Shoes

Yeah thats me trying kungfu with the shoe. It is that light

3. Polaroid

  • Cube – An action camera capable of recording for 90 mins

  • Snap – The memorable Polaroid now comes in a new sleek form which prints photos immediately and is rightly sized for wallets. They call it the Z inc meaning zero ink so the photos last longer

  • Bluetooth Printer – Print any photos from your mobile in a snap

4. Garmin Watches – These days watches are becoming smarter and smarter (and more expensive!!). These watches do everything including keeping you healthy by counting your calories

5. Samsung Galaxy S2 watch – If you want to do the same thing as above with elan and panache go for this. It looked so cool and when its off it gives some real creative snaps !!

6. Sony

  • Saw some real good cameras in mirrorless and action. They claim its the fastest camera in the world and I believe it. Keep pressing the shutter and it sounds like a machine gun taking photos at unimaginable speed. It also has an interesting feature of bouncing the flash. The clarity of the photos are mind-blowing as well
  • Got to try out their action cameras. Somehow mine got heated up and also did not have much battery backup. The other pieces were okay. It is splash proof only so don’t throw it into the swimming pool or river

7. Coleman – They have some awesome camping gears including tents, portable johns, water bottles and storages for any drink 🙂 My team was able to assemble the camp in 1:54 mins and that’s how easy it is.  I also got a prize for my tweets and for being in the winning team in paintball. Both of which came from Coleman…

Now coming to the activities,Mango Mist is a corporate favourite for having a host of outdoor activities such as Rock Climbing,Land Zorbing, Burma Bridges, ziplines and of course the mist dance. It’s a good a place to have team fun.. Oh yes they have a bar too !!

Well those were the phases. Now leaving you with the faces and happy moments…….These pictures are a combination of cameras from the Sony action cam, to my Canon 600D to contributed by others…

    I’m not a gadget person at all but these gadgets are so for the non-gadget person. Am I making sense? I found myself looking at them all and wanting to buy at least three or four – the headphones, the polaroid camera, the watch, the shoes.. ooh they looked great. Glad to see all of you having a good time.

    What a lovely day it was, Pheno! Lovely photos and fantastic gadgets! I would have loved to try on one of those shoes but they were all men’s shoes! They looked very good though!. My favorite gadget for the day was the Sony camera. Ah, so impressive! And I truly enjoyed the archery activity!
