CES: Blue Updates the Mikey

Long time readers of HHH know that I’m a huge fan of Mikey, the external mic manufactured by Blue Microphones.

And from the looks of it, I’m guessing it’s aimed at higher-end customers.  No price info yet.  Stay tuned.

Poof! Instant light. Honestly, I had NO idea that Quirky was going to be exhibiting at CES this year. So, it was quite a treat finding them in isle 10,400,185. They say the Beamer is about 3 weeks away from shipping.  Hooray!
