With what’s been going on currently, we are forced to stay at home and unfortunately - #sadface! - give up some of our favourite past-times, such as getting together with friends and belting out all your favourite 90s pop songs at a karaoke outlet.
But if you feel like you can’t keep all the tunes and your beautiful voice inside anymore, there’s one gadget that will be your best friend, especially during this MCO 3.0: the Popsical Remix.
It may not look like anything much, but don’t let its appearance fool you: this little box will give you hours and hours of singing pleasure on end.
Want to find out what this little thing can do? Let us explain:
What is Popsical Remix?
Before you say anything, no; it’s not an ice cream brand (although it does sound like it, doesn't it?).
Remember the chunky old karaoke system one find at a karaoke center? Popsical Remix is the modern version of that system.
Yup, that’s right; the palm-sized device that easily fits into your backpack is basically a karaoke system similar to the ones you find in a karaoke center.
Installation of the Popsical Remix is super simple too. All you need to do is to link the device to a TV using a HDMI cable and connect it with a speaker or a soundbar with an AUX or RCA input and voila, say hello to Taylor Swift (Econsave version, that is).
You can select songs, arrange play-queue order, control volume, adjust pitch and microphone volume using their free Popsical Remix app.
The Popsical Remix device also comes with two wireless and feather-light microphones, so you can sing “Endless Love” with your crush anywhere, anytime.
Wait, you’re telling me the small device has songs in it?
Yessir! The Popsical Remix has a cloud-based storage library that stores all your favourite songs.
With no physical storage, you don’t have to worry about deleting songs to make way for newer tunes: you can just access the library and sing your favourite tunes to your heart’s content.
OK, how many songs are we talking about here?
More songs than you can sing in a lifetime!
According to Popsical Remix’s official website, there are more than 230,000 original and cover music videos for you to choose from!
Not only that, the songs come in 14 languages, so you can sing all your favourite K-pop songs or Bollywood tunes all night long.
But here’s the best part: Popsical Remix has a self-updating library of songs, which means that the library will automatically update the songs so you can get the latest and the greatest hits - on top of the old school classics you love.
Wow! Does this mean I can practice to become a singer?
Well, we don’t know about that, but the Popsical Remix has a state-of-the-art pitch correction feature that lets you sing like Celine Dion.
You wouldn’t be winning any talent shows, but hey, you’ll be winning hearts with your voice on TikTok.
OK, I’m sold! Where can I get one of these for myself?
Just head on over to Popsical Remix’s official website and check it out for yourself.
