Equalizer Phone Case Grooves to the Beat of Your World

Equalizer Phone Case

What’s better than a case that sufficiently protects your phone from cracks when you accidentally drop it? Why, an interactive one like the Equalizer Case, that’s what! It’s made from tough polycarbonate plastic to provide an added barrier between your phone and whatever hard surface you might bump or drop your phone on. What sets it apart from other cases is the glowing display on its back that looks like a graphic equalizer.

The coolest part? It reacts to ambient sound or music, so the levels go up or down, depending on the current sounds around it–like, say, the sound of your voice when you’re taking a call or the tunes when someone’s playing music. It uses its own battery, so you don’t have to worry about it draining your phone’s power, and has an on/off switch in case you need to tone things down.

The Equalizer Case is available from ThinkGeek for $14.99.

Deal Of The Day: 40% Off On Super-Fisheye iPhone Lens

redesign_fisheye_mf1

The vast majority of photos are taken on a mobile device these days, so it makes sense to make a bit of an effort to get a better quality picture. There are tons of lens attachments for the iPhone; the one you’re looking at is a “super fisheye” lens that’s a little different than other similar offerings. Instead of the regular 180°, you’re getting 235°. That’s a much wider field of view and can make for some interesting shots. It’s also easy to remove and install so you won’t have a large lens sticking out at all times. Normally you’d have to pay $49, but with this deal it’s only $29.

The Only Thing Better Than Waffles Are Waffles On A Stick

Let’s face it, no one likes to sit down to eat. Why be so formal? Food-on-sticks is the natural evolution of our eating habits, or at least it should be. That’s why we’re very bullish on the above Nostalgia Electrics FTW200 2-in-1 Breakfast Treats Maker. It comes with interchangeable plates so you can just as easily make French Toast or waffles. Included in the box are also 25 sticks, so you can get started on the snacks right away. Perhaps more interestingly, it’s only $32!

Matador Pocket Blanket Is A Must-Have Outdoors Accessory

pocket_for_product_features-01_887x328

If you’re out walking in the woods and suddenly feel the urge for a nap or a picnic, it might not be a bad idea to have a blanket around. The Matador Pocket Blanket is an ultra-compact piece of fabric that you can whip out in an instant, providing you with some protection from the elements or a barrier from the ground. It’s waterproof and puncture proof, and has weighted corners so it won’t fly away in the wind. It’s made from “HyprLyte Nylon”, a special fabric that’s only 90 microns thin. This means that once it’s folded, the Matador is the size of a small pack of smokes. In order to help you fold it up again, there are stitch marks all around the optimal fold lines; just follow the patterns and you’ll be able to get it back in its pouch in no time.

It’s $25 for the full-size Matador, while a Mini version will set you back $20.

Microsoft Will Trade Your MacBook Air For A Surface Pro 3

microsoft-surface-pro-3

The MacBook Air is a very capable laptop, so much so that its success pretty much ushered the era of Ultrabooks all by itself. “Capable laptop” however doesn’t stop companies like Microsoft from competing, and the boys from Redmond are pushing the Surface Pro 3 pretty hard. To reach their target demo, the company is running a promotion until July 31st where you can get up to $650 if you trade in a used Macbook Air. That amount then has to be put towards the purchase of a Surface Pro 3. Considering the laptop/tablet hybrid starts at $799, you’ll have relatively little money left to pay. Whether or not you consider this a good deal probably depends on the amount of cynicism you harbour towards Microsoft’s products. But if you’ve got an MBA just lying around, now’s a good time to get something for it.

Lonehood is an Attachable Hood That Turns Any Shirt Into a Hoodie

Attachable Hoodie

Hoodies might not be as big as they used to be, but they still add a little extra something to your outfit. Fashion aside, they’re also pretty functional and can come in pretty handy when it’s raining or when it’s particularly hot outside. They’re not exactly the most formal of clothes, so you probably won’t be able to wear them at the office without getting a memo.

So here’s an alternative: the Lonehood. It’s basically an attachable hood by StyleUno that lets you turn any collared shirt into a hoodie.

Frebble Lets You ‘Hold Hands’ With Loved Ones Who Are Far Away

Frebble

To say that technology has changed how people communicate is an understatement. Where people used to send telegrams and letters, we now send emails, instant messages, or SMS. Where people used to pick up the phone and talk to each other, we now use video chat and video conferencing where we get to see and interact with the people we’re talking to.

Taking things one step further are the folks behind Frebble, which look like modified joysticks that you’re supposed to grab with one hand as you would, well, a joystick. It let’s people “hold hands” even though they’re far away by communicating these sensations to the other party.Continue Reading

LiquidOff Spray Repels Water, Minus the Haze

LiquidOff

Klutzes, rejoice! If you spill stuff a lot or walk around carelessly into puddles of mud, then you might want to get a bottle or two of LiquidOff. As the name suggests, it’s a hydrophobic spray that you can use to coat your shirt, pants, and shoes with a waterproof layer, so your stuff remains free from stains.

This isn’t the first waterproofing spray to hit the market, but it’s one of the few that are water-based. Creator Harold Stewart got the inspiration for LiquidOff after babysitting his sibling’s kids and noticing what a mess kids can make Harold explains: “Trying to learn as much about the technology and its intrinsic properties, as well as learning how certain chemical agents bond to create a desired effect, was a process.”
