The Lumenati Cinematic Smartcase Turns Your Phone Into A Videography Powerhouse

Lumenati-CS1-case-for-iPhone-6

Combining the modern convenience of an iPhone 6’s touchscreen, high-density optical sensor, and sharing capabilities with the old-school cachet, ergonomic form factor, and coolness of a retro lo-fi camera, the Lumenati Smartcase could quickly become the hipster’s favourite method of capturing video.

Cinematographers simply pop their device into the Lumenati CS1 just as grandpa would load an 8mm film cartridge. The lightweight, portable unit allows anyone to frame and film a steady, stable shot with the pull of an intuitive trigger. A cold shoe allows filmmakers to attach lights, microphones and extra handles for sport shooting. The real-time viewfinder allows WYSIWYG capabilities even in bright light, a feature that is elusive to modern mobile devices. Lenses can be swapped to shoot in wide angle, fisheye and telephoto.

The Lumenati CS1 uses an optical-quality glass lensing system. Our lenses range from wide angle to telephoto and deliver crisp stunning images. The lenses are designed for high resolution HD cameras and when paired with the CS1 create the perfect look for any occasion. Standard 58mm interchangeable lensing provides even more versatility with available super wide and fish eye lenses.

If it works as advertised, the Lumenati could be a fun way to capture footage. It’s a $200 to get your own, which comes with a wide-angle lens.

These Protein Bars Are Made From Cricket Flour

cricket-flour-protien-bars-640x533

Has the Paleo craze gone too far? These Exo Cricket Flour Protein Bars are said to have been developed by a “three-Michelin-starred chef”, which we’re presumably being told about to convince us they don’t taste like crap. The fact remains that they’re made from flour derived from an insect. That wouldn’t be so bad on its own, since insects are indeed more protein dense, and are even being considered as a solution to world hunger. But each bar packs in only 10g of protein, while clocking in between 280-300 calories. That’s not a whole bunch on its own, but for how little protein you get, we’re a little let down; we thought the point of putting up with cricket meat was for its higher protein load.

The bars are “Paleo Compliant”, and come in Blueberry Vanilla, Apple Cinnamon & Cacao Nut flavours. It’s $10 for a sampler three-pack.

Znaps Adapter Gives Your Mobile Device MagSafe Powers

znaps-1

If you’ve ever owned a MagSafe-equipped device, you’ll know how great it is to be able to magnetically snap your power adapter in place, and just as easily tug it free. You can now give that same functionality to any mobile device, thanks to the Znaps adapter. You simply plug the small dongle into the MicroUSB or Lightning port, and just leave it there. Then you insert a special sleeve over the connector of your existing power cable, which converts it to work with the dongle on your mobile device. In less than a minute you’ve given your device magnetic charging capabilities, allowing you to plug it in one-handed, unplug it with a tug, and do any of the things that MagSafe-like connectors allow you to do. The best part is that at an $11 pledge, you’ll have to pay very little for this cool new functionality.

Meet The Mamma Nessie Colander

mama-nessie-collander-ladle-1-e1436556642554

You guys remember the Nessie Ladle? It was the super popular ladle that looked like the Loch Ness monster poking out of your soup pot; quirky design and decent price made the thing a hit. And like a Hollywood movie, there’s now a sequel: the Mamma Nessie Colander. It helps you drain your pasta like a good colander should, and while it doesn’t share the same “poking-its-head-out-of-water” magic that the ladle had, it will make a great addition to it if you already own the smaller utensil. They easily nest into one another, and the BPA-free toughened nylon it’s made of should last you years. Considering it’s only $18.90, we think it’s a steal.

Some Guy Makes A Batsuit Out Of Tree Bark

bark-batman

Artists make pretty things; we get to look at them, say “gee whiz, look at that”, and then once we’re done, we just move on. That’s what we’re expecting will happen when you read about French artist Christophe Guinet’s work here. It’s a Batman suit made from tree bark, and well, it looks pretty neat-o.

Together with Warner Bros. France and the Splendens Factory, the artist has designed the iconic batman suit primarily out of tree bark, vegetal moss, lichen and fungus. A foam mold of the batman suit and helmet has been carefully wrapped and covered in layers of tree bark, forming the suit’s distinctive pointed ears, opening for the mouth and nose, and defensive shoulder covering.

Why? Apparently it’s Christophe’s thing, to appropriate plant life and create familiar objects. We suppose that in art, that’s as good a reason as any.
