How To Waste $100 on Amazon…

Hey guys, this is Austin Today it is time for yet another mystery tech

This time at a hundred dollars The Expendables Kunai Throwers Is this like from Naruto? Wait, wait No (laughs) Hey, I'm glad I at least immediately recognized the knives

It's like, wait a minute I used to want one of these when I was 13 (laughs) I feel like I'm in a GIF right now (knife sharpening) This looks really bad, doesn't it? (rock music) The next item, please The Doogee X53

Ken, is this actually real technology, not some dumb joke to make me look dumb on camera? The Doogee X53 has a 53 inch display with a 18 by 9 aspect ratio, dual rear cameras, and one gig of ram Uh, okay How much was this? 70 dollars, of course Everyone should always take their phone buying advice from a random weirdo on the internet wearing a Naruto costume

Because, reasons From the front it actually does look like a much more expensive phone than 70 dollars Even if you flip it around to the back, with the dual cameras and the metal build, it doesn't feel all that bad Okay, it doesn't want to power on It's got two power buttons

It's got one which looks like the power button, it's grooved But then there's another button here that has a little lightning symbol on it, but neither of those actually turn on the phone Why don't we plug this guy in and come back to it a little bit later Design your own headphones Street art

Actually, I think Lou did a video on this, right? Literally just a pair of super cheap looking headphones As well as some markers and paint This is a bad idea Alright, let's just see if we can make a Ken Oh man, I'm totally going to slice a finger off

I'm going to make a leaf to match my headband This is our stencil Now, do we want to use the paint or the marker? Let's start with the marker and go to the paint for the other side Oh, look, we have an orange marker to match my awesome jacket On today's episode of art class with Austin, we crudely draw on some headphones, in the attempt to find some "style"

Okay, so that's one side done For this side, let me see if I can paint It just squirts (grimaces) So, after waiting a little while, the paint is somewhat dry Let's see if I can barely peel this back

This is really the look I was going for the whole time I think if you take a close look, you'll see the art that I was inspired by I really wanted to show my inner artist with these headphones Let's just plug them in and see what they sound like, because I'm sure it's going to be just as great as my wonderful art Okay, I can actually really clearly describe what these headphones sound like

Imagine you are going to a concert for one of your favorite artists You spend the entire time with your fingers in your ears What is this? Trakk's? Is this a backpack? Oh, is it a backpack with a speaker? Wait a minute How much was this? – [Man] One hundred dollars – This was a hundred dollars? Uh, this better sound pretty decent

Well, okay, so I guess to be fair, there is sort of some extra function, because you do get a five volt out via USB So I guess in theory, if you want to not only listen to music, but you could also run a USB cable out through the little hole on the top, and charge your phone Well, this isn't good Our Doogee phone, after being plugged in for twenty minutes, still does absolutely nothing besides bootloop Alright, so I've connected the Trakk's to my phone, and the first thing I noticed is it's got this cool LED

What I've also noticed is that it just kind of hums Wait Talk, talk What, wait? This is a speaker Wait, hold on

Talk, talk, one two, one two Hey guys, this is Austin Why is this a thing? Okay, so that's what the buzzing noise was I thought that was really bizarre There's also some other things

Like, it can control the light So, you just turn it on and off with this little controller ("Black SpiderMan" by Logic) So, it sounds great Actually, it doesn't sound that bad The real problem though is that, how do you not look like the biggest dork in the world with one of these on your back? Although, I guess I'm one to talk right now, aren't I

(laughs) ("AlttA" by 20syl and Mr J Medeiros) Okay, I think my new problem with this is that while it sounds decent, it sounds like any kind of fairly cheap Bluetooth speaker I don't hate it I don't love it though

It's weird We'll call it weird Alright, what do we got next? Oh, hey, this doesn't look like total garbage With 201 mega pixels, 5 times optical zoom, a 26 millimeter wide angle lens, and HD Movie 720p

This, well, obviously, it's not going to be great What did you say, it was 80 bucks? – [Man] 80 – 80 bucks Yeah, that's actually not gonna be crazy Alright

Oh, okay, that looks like it's straight out of 2007 Throw an SD card in here and it actually isn't super terrible looking It makes these wonderful noises (camera beeps) To be fair, we're getting a 20 mega pixel sensor, 720p video It might not be that bad

Let's see here Ooh, that takes awhile Oh, that is incredibly soft Let's try some video We are now recording 720p video, so let's just kind of see

It actually, considering that we look at all kinds of terrible phones, this does actually not look that bad If it comes in focus Dude, the stabilization on this is actually kind of crazy I mean, I'm like shaking the camera around a little bit, and it looks a little blurry, but it's actually not that bad Is this going to be as good as say a decent smartphone? Well, in some ways it actually might be on par

Especially considering that you have that zoom lens But, I wouldn't exactly go throw your brand new Galaxy S9 out the window You actually got something that's reasonable, Ken This is actually something that people might want to buy I don't know what to say

What is this? Oh, it's so heavy Oh! Why is this so heavy? (laughs) What is in here? Oh, yep (laughs) Is this a cannon ball? Oh, why is it so oily? Ken, is this a giant bearing? What?! It's completely coated in oil I mean, this is cool, but why? What is it? – [Man] It's a bearing – It's just a bearing, that's it? It's just a giant bearing that weighs like 20 pounds

Oh, it's so coated in oil And you bought it anyway? Of course you did Um, how is this tech?
