Bleep Smart Cable Charges Your Phone, Backs Up Your Data

Bleep

People mourn for more than just their phones when they lose them. In fact, most are more worried about the data on their phones rather than the actual devices. Tel Aviv-based Company Musers is well aware of this fact, so they’ve come up with Bleep. It’s a smart cable that backs up your phone’s data while you’re charging it so you’re covered in case you lose your phone or damage it beyond repair. It also protects you against hardware crashes, which sometimes happen when you least expect it.

Bleep can back up your messages, photos, music, videos, contacts, calendar, and app history, among other things. It’s also designed to work with its companion app which is password-protected for your data’s security.

Toymail

Being a working parent is hard. Aside from missing out on some of your kid’s firsts, it sucks not being able to hang out and bond with your offspring as much as you want to. You can, however, harness the power of modern technology and make them feel your presence one way or another, like with Toymail.

It’s a small, mailbox-shaped toy that lets you send voicemail straight to your kids. The awesome part is that your child can send you messages, too, simply by hitting ‘reply.’

HyperLip Plastic Lips Forces Any Face Into a Grimace

HyperLip

 

Put on the HyperLip the next time you take a selfie and watch the likes pile up…not. It’s an unusual mouthpiece that forces the face of its wearer into a grimace. If you think only one kind of grimace exists, then think again, because these photos will prove you wrong. Who knew there could be so many ways to grimace–from smug and different to manic and just plain scary?

The HyperLip was created by French designer Sascha Nordmeyer back in 2009 as an art project. Now they’re back and are being used at the Olympus Photography Playground traveling exhibition, with the next event taking place in Cologne, Germany on September 11th to October 5th, 2014.

Want Pizza? Just Push for Pizza!

Push for Pizza

Want a pizza for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? No problem. Just fire up the Push for Pizza app on your phone and, well, push for pizza. You’ll be asked to enter your address and credit card info the first time you use it, but you can go straight to ordering pizza and specifying your toppings of choice the next time you use it.

Sure, you can order pizza online or by phone, but nothing beats ordering by just pressing that button. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

You can download Push for Pizza from iTunes here.

‘Ignore No More’ App Gives You the Power to Lock Phones Remotely

Ignore No More App1

 

Nobody likes being ignored, especially mothers. Unfortunately, kids (and even hubbies) these days ignore parents or their SOs for one reason or the other. Sometimes, it’s understandable. Other times, it causes undue panic because one party might assume that the other is in trouble. With this premise, Sharon Standifird created Ignore No More.

It’s an app that locks a paired device at the push of a button. The app has to be installed on both “parent” and “child” devices in order for it to work. (In some cases, that could be “wife” and “husband” or “girlfriend” and “boyfriend.)

Whistle Straws Let You Whistle While You Sip

Whistle Straws1

 

 

Feel like annoying the crap out of your friends? Nothing does that better than these Wet My Whistle straws. First and foremost, their design is based on slide whistles, which are played by blowing on one end while sliding the other in and out. They’re easy to play, but difficult to master.

The Whistle Straws build upon this concept, only you’re supposed to slide the straw in and out of your drink. The varying beverage levels changes the amount of empty space in the straw, which allows you to produce different tunes as you go along.

Telephoto MegaFon Loudspeaker Lets You “Yell” at One Person Only

Telephoto MegaFon

So near, yet so far. You might be able to see the person you want to talk to, but the din of the outside world won’t allow him to hear your voice. That and the fact that what you want to keep your message private makes yelling out of the question. Addressing this first world problem is Fuji Xerox.

After a lot of detailed R&D, they’ve created the Telephoto Megafon which is basically a targeted megaphone of sorts. The 3D-printed gadget will let the user “speak” to someone far away by simply pointing the Megafon towards that person.
