Matrix Group InternationalOne of the most rewarding things communicators and marketers do is use their skills to educate. To build an understanding among the upcoming generation of leaders, Matrix Group International created a microsite for the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), which aims to strengthen security worldwide by reducing global threats from nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, and the and James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

Matrix Group’s creation, found at tutorials.nti.org, includes concise and clear copy with references, an in-depth glossary of terms, video and maps to help visitors building a solid foundation of knowledge.

This Week’s Latest Tech Gadgets – Sept. 8, 2014

Tech reviews of the iStabilizer Monopod and Shutter Remote Bundle, Moshi Digits gloves, Syncable-Duo cable and iLuv TimeShaker Micro.

iStabilizer Monopod & Shutter Remote Bundle

The iStabilizer Monopod and Shutter Remote Bundle are the perfect solution to make selfie photos much more appealing because it lets you include your subjects and more of the environment around you.

iStabilizer remote

The iStabilizer (one foot long when collapsed, 1/2 lb.) attaches to a camera at one end and extends more than 3 feet, giving your camera far more reach for that coveted selfie. It’s compatible with most every smart phone and other action cameras including iPhones, Androids, Blackberrys and GoPros.

But the key to the system is the hand-held wireless Shutter Remote (1.38 x 3.56 x 0.38-inches and weighing only an ounce).

The remote connects to your device with Bluetooth and fires with your camera app or “any other app that uses the volume button to trigger the shutter,” according to the company.

I fired it up with an iPhone 5s problem-free. Since it relies on Bluetooth, the remote can be about 35 feet from the camera if you’re using another device to keep it in place.

The remote also works with Apple computers (Macbook, iMac, Mac Mini) for snapping photos, music selections, volume and even to talk to Siri.

Cost: $59.95 for the bundle, includes the remote and monopod
