The iLuv Selfy is the Smartphone Case For the Selfie-Obsessed

iLuv Selfy Case

Love selfies? Then you’ll love the iLuv Selfy smartphone case, which was designed for users who take selfies and groufies almost obsessively. The case is simple and unobtrusive enough. But the selfie factor lies with the remote trigger functionality, as it comes with a detachable remote at the back to trigger the phone’s rear camera.

Aside from added convenience, the case gives the would-be selfie and groufie takers to pose and compose themselves before taking a shot. Since the shutter is triggered remotely, they also have ample time to position themselves to make sure that no one’s head gets cut off in the shot.

Not-a-Camera Wooden Camera Necklace is Actually a Camera

Wooden Camera Necklace

So this is the Not-a-Camera necklace, and it’s the exact opposite of what it’s name says it is. The necklace features a larger-than-the-usual wooden pendant in the shape of a camera, and even though it’s name insists that it isn’t a camera, it actually is. It’s hard to believe that this thin wooden thing is capable of taking 3.5-megapixel pictures, but it can be used to record HD video too.

The Not-a-Camera’s maker, Olivia, originally made the camera for her 101-year-old grandmother (who also happens to be named Olivia), so that the latter would have a camera at hand (or rather, around her neck) that was both light and easy to use.

Transform Your iPhone Into a Spy Camera With Peek-I

Peek-i

Whatever your reasons are for wanting to spy on your surroundings or the people around you, then here’s something that can help you out: the Peek-I, which is basically an attachment for your iPhone that’ll let you see around corners or areas at odd angles that you normally won’t be able to see with your eyes alone.

Peek-I is meant to go over your camera lens, where it works its magic by reflecting images this way and that to let you check blind areas and take images at a 90-degree angle.Continue Reading

Deal Of The Day: 32% Off On Lightning Cable And Car Charger

redesign_lightning_mf

While not wanting to embark on a critique of Apple products, suffice it to say that their durability isn’t the most stellar on the market. I’ve had to change a Lightning cable on more than one occasion, and wasn’t thrilled at having to pay the premium Apple prices. Well, today you’re looking at an Apple-approved Lightning cable from Hipstreet, along with a car charger, that’s going to cost almost as much as a single Lightning cable straight from Apple. That means that for $26 you can get both of these items, when you’d normally have to pay $21 for the cable alone. That’s a deal.

Solar-Powered Sunglasses That You Can’t Lose or Misplace

Tzukuri Sunglasses

Do you misplace stuff and lose things like there’s no tomorrow? Aside from wasting money, constantly losing stuff means you’re also wasting time, including the hours you spend looking for and buying a replacement for whatever it is that you lost. If you recently lost your sunglasse and are on the (literal) lookout for a new pair, then check out these solar-powered sunglasses by Tzukuri that you won’t be able to lose, even if you tried.

These fashionable lenses hook up to your iPhone via Bluetooth and work in conjunction with an app that’ll alert you if you’ve left it behind. The first alert pops up when you’re 16 feet away from the glasses, while the next ones come when you’re 32 feet and 50 feet away.Continue Reading

Peek-I iPhone Camera Attachment Lets You Take Sneaky Shots

peek-i-640x448

We’re not sure how to feel about this product. It’s a tiny pivoting mirror that attaches to your iPhone’s camera and allows you to capture a shot of something that’s not directly in front of you. It pivots 360 degrees, but opens at a 45 degree angle, which means you’re limited to capturing something that’s exactly to the side of the phone’s plane: straight up, down, or sideways.

Now, you could make a case that there may be situations where you want to capture someone candidly, and that having a camera pointed at your subject may well draw their attention and cause them to lose whatever pose interested you in the first place. That’s the artistic argument. But then you have the creeps… So the question is, do you judge a product negatively because it has the potential to be abused? We’re leaning on the “no” side, which is why we’re telling you about Peek-I. It’s a cool device, as long as you don’t use it stupidly.

It’ll set you back all of $15 on their very well funded Indiegogo campaign.

Gibson Memory Cable Will Capture Your Jams For Posterity

gibson_memory_cable

Ever been screwing around with a guitar, pumping out some jams for the heck of it, and realize that last couple of licks were genius? But then you have no idea what you did and they’re gone forever? Yeah, never happened to us because we don’t play guitar, but it’s a plausible scenario that makes the Gibson Memory Cable a really interesting product for any serious guitarists out there. It’s integrated directly into the cable, and records everything you play for up to 13 hours, directly to an SD card. Think of it as an audio dashcam. It’ll be available May 15th for an undisclosed sum.

Want This: Metal Gear iDroid Smartphone Case

Metal Gear Smartphone Case

Fans of Metal Gear will be able to identify the inspiration for this iPhone case at first sight. If you were thinking of the iDroid, then you’re spot on. For non-fans, it probably helps that a sign reading “iDroid” has been placed right beside the case itself.

The iDroid is a walkie talkie-slash-holographic map projector featured in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and the case pretty much looks exactly like it. The obvious downside is that the case is definitely on the bulky side. Heck, it even adds an antenna to your antenna-less iPhone, so if you’re looking for something sleek and compact, then this is clearly not it.Continue Reading

Pykmax Reinvents The Guitar Pick

pykmax

Anyone who’s ever played guitar knows that holding a pick, as easy as it seems, is actually somewhat challenging. Granted it becomes easier as you become more skilled and there’s nothing inherently wrong with the current design, but that doesn’t mean picks can’t be made better. Pykmax hopes to do just that by adding a carefully crafted ergonomic grip that comfortably sits in your hand and lets you keep playing for hours without experiencing any of the tiredness that often comes from prolonged use. Tested by several guitarists of various levels, Pykmax appears to improve on an old design, and does so at minimal cost: $12. It comes in two sizes, and various plectrum gauges can be selected, just like regular picks.
