Embercase Protects Your iPhone, Keeps Your Hands Warm and Toasty

Embercase iPhone case

 

Anyone who has tried to dial or type with freezing fingers knows that the task is futile, or extremely time-consuming at best. You can get gloves with capacitive patches on the fingers so you can still use your phone when you’ve got them on, or you can get the Embercase and do away with the gloves.

The Embercase is designed to keep your iPhone safe from the elements while doubling as a hand warmer to keep your hands warm and toasty. It connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth so you can control its temperature via a companion app. You don’t have to worry about stuff overheating, as the case is made from titanium with a layer of Aerogel ceramic fiber to insulate your iPhone from the heat.

Thanko Mobile Battery with Handy Mist Keeps Your Phone Charged, Your Face Moisturized

Thanko Mobile Battery with Handy Mist

Where’s that moisturizer when you need it the most? Winter is coming, and the cold air can be harsh on skin. Seeing as most people don’t leave home without their phones (and their power banks!), Thanko’s mobile battery seems like a smart solution to low power and dry skin. Aside from being a portable power source, it comes with a built-in spray that keeps dry skin at bay.

The battery itself has a 2,200 mAh capacity which should give you enough power to make a couple of emergency calls or send messages. To charge it up, all you have to do is plug it to your PC for three hours or so. The Thanko mobile battery with handy mist is available for 4,980 yen (or about $43.)

Klatz is a Smartwatch and Headset In One

klatz smartwatch

Wearables are all the rage these days, and now they’re about to get a level up with the introduction of the Klatz. First of all, it lets you check the time while performing basic functions like alerting you to new SMS, emails, or incoming calls without having to fish your phone out of your pocket.

Smartwatches are nothing new, we know, but what makes the Klatz novel is that it also doubles as a headset. Just flip it open and use it like you would a regular headset to take calls. Battery life lasts for an impressive 10 days and it’s available in black and red.

The Klatz is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $99 will get you one of your very own.

World’s Thinnest Case Preserves The iPhone 6’s Unnecessary Thinness

Air-Skin-iPhone-6-case-from-Spigen-4

Apple could have made the iPhone 6 about a millimeter thicker and no one would have noticed. Instead, they made them this thin, and a camera sticks out the back like a sore thumb. On your back. Bravo, Apple, bravo. But regardless of how you feel about this potentially boneheaded decision, you might still want to keep your phone protected while taking advantage of the appreciated, but totally unnecessary, thinness. To this end, take a look at this case from Spigen. Made from polycarbonate and a discoloration-preventing urethane coating, this case is only 0.4mm thick. Less than half a millimiter! We wouldn’t write about cases normally, but a case this thin deserves at least a passing mention. It’s $25 for either model, and comes in five different hues.

Whisky Wedge Perfects The Drinking Experience

whiskey_wedge_1

When drinking whisky, you want to chill your liquor as much as possible, while diluting it as little as possible. There are many ways to accomplish this, from using chilled metal pucks to shaping your ice into a giant ball. You can now add the Whisky Wedge to that list. It’s a combination tumbler and silicone mold that shape your ice into a wedge that perfectly fits the glass. This way your liquor rests against an inclined surface of ice, but not more, preventing the melting of too large a volume of water and the diluting of your drink. It also looks kind of slick. It’s $15 and comes with the glass and the mold.

Harry Potter iPhone Case is Simply Magical

Harry Potter iPhone Case

 

It’s been years since J.K. Rowling penned the final chapters of the Harry Potter series, but it’s still enchanting Muggles young and old today. The character is very much alive in pop culture, which was definitely propelled by the highly-successful movie franchise based on the books too. If you’ve still got Potter fever and are looking for an iPhone case, then try this one on for size.

This handmade case is available from TheSorcerersPhone on Etsy for $25.99+ and it’s awesome. It features Harry’s signature black spectacles, his lightning-shaped scar, and of course, his Gryffindor scarf. It’s available for a range of devices, from iPhones to Android devices. Accio case!

The Wine Yoke Can Class Up That Black Tie Event

wine-yoke-hands-free-wine-glass-holder-xl

Best of all, it’s super cheap: $20 gets you 4.

The Selfie Brush Is The Pinnacle Of All That’s Wrong With Humanity

selfiebrush

Well, that’s a bit of a hyperbole right there we suppose, especially in light of a rampant ISIS and growing tensions in Eastern Europe… But to find out about the existence of a hairbrush/iPhone case hybrid does sort of highlight where our priorities seem to lie, here in the first world. You can apparently now safely ignore what’s going on in our planet while de-tousling your hair using a brush that also holds your iPhone. Yes, the Selfie Brush even has an integrated mirror, so you can do some final touchups before you go ahead and snap that pic, because well, the front-facing cam on the phone apparently isn’t good enough. Right?

Whether or not this $20 accessory sells is not even the point, now. Someone, somewhere thought it was a good idea to invest some time and money making this, and that alone speaks volumes.
