Put That Lens Cap To Some Use, Aside From, You Know, Capping Your Lens

Snapper-Capper

Lens caps are essential. Lens caps are also pretty useless when they’re not protecting your lens. The Snapper Cap pictured above makes use of the little space between the lens and the cap by introducing a slim plastic insert that allows you to carry an extra memory card. And that right there’s pretty useful, considering how quickly cards can fill up if you shoot a lot. The inserts come in formats that accept SD cards with all size caps, CF cards with 67mm, 72mm and 77mm caps, and even little wipes in the same formats that accept CF cards. It’s cost you a $15 pledge on Kickstarter to get yours, if funding is achieved.

French Fry Dipping Cone

dipping-cone-joie

We’re more the kind of people who’ll just make a giant pile of fries and let you dig in, but apparently some people have this thing called class. Go figure. If you’re one of these, you might be interested in this BPA-free plastic cone with a removable dip tray. Fortunately, class doesn’t have to cost a fortune: it’s $5 per cone.

FoldyLock, A Folding Chain Of Steel Bars To Secure Your Bike

Home_Page_Pic_01

There are many ways to secure your bicycle when away from home, and the FoldyLock appears to be one of the better ones. It’s a 90cm (35.5. inch) long lock made up of “six hardened steel links covered with plastic reinforced with fiberglass to protect your bike frame from scratches. Connecting rivets are designed with VSR rivet technology against drilling. Foldylock is rust free and has an anti drilling cylinder that is protected in a hardened steel housing.” You can pack it tight and carry it where the water bottle would go in its designated case, or just toss it into a backpack. Hardened steel is hard to cut, but more importantly, the tough appearance of the Foldylock may deter would-be thieves just by looking harder than normal to defeat. They’re more likely to move on to the next guy tying his bike with a flimsy chain than they are to try and cut through solid steel.

The Kickstarter is fully funded, but you can still get your own for $80.

Custom Handwriting Necklaces: Written Mementos You Can Wear

Custom Handwriting Necklace

A phrase from a love letter. A line from a poem. A few words from a note. Sometimes, they just stick with you, even when the person who wrote them is long gone. You can preserve the sheets, but you can now immortalize bits and pieces of those handwritten mementos by turning them into something wearable. It’s all possible thanks to jewelry artist Brittany Leigh.

The idea came to her when her grandmother passed away. She wanted to make something for her mom that kept the former “close despite her absence,” explaining: “I wanted it to be happy, and beautiful, and capture the essence of my grandmother. I found her handwriting translated all of these things in a wonderful way.”

Cordli iPhone Case Keeps Your Headphone Cord Out of the Way

Cordli

Things can get pretty messy with your earphone cord if you don’t have one of those holders or wire clips to keep them in place while you’re using them. The clips do a decent job of keeping the wires neat, but then there’s the hassle of where to put them when you want to use the entire length of your earphones. I’ve lost my fair share of these clips because they’re often so tiny that you don’t really notice when they slip out of your pocket or purse.

An alternative is the Cordli iPhone case. It has snakelike grooves on the back where you’re supposed to push the wire into. It promises to get rid of the “cord bulge” and allows you to adjust the cord to a length that you’re comfortable with by holding the excess in its grooves.

Prong PocketPlug Case Lets You Charge Your iPhone, Minus the Wires

PocketPlug

The Prong PocketPlug case makes charging your iPhone infinitely more convenient. All you have to do is slide your phone into the case, pull out the prongs, and plug it into an outlet. The case is specially convenient when you’re travelling since there are no more docks, chargers, or wires to deal with.

The disadvantage is that you won’t be able to use your phone comfortably while it’s charging, since it’s attached upright on the socket. If you prefer corded charging, then you can tote along your wire since the case has a micro USB port on the side.Continue Reading

iPhone Paperback Notes To Kick It Old School

iphone-paperback-xl

Yeah, there’s a Notes application in your iPhone, but let’s face it: no one uses it. Well, some people do, but there’s no denying that there still exists a strong contingent of people who haven’t lost all love for hand writing. The iPhone Paperback Notes consists of 80 sheets of self-adhesive paper that stick straight to the back of the iPhone 5. Write stuff down, tear that sheet out and stick it somewhere like they used to do in the 90′s. It’s $8.

Classy Rings with mini glasses3

There’s only so much booze that you can pour into these miniature glasses that are attached to rings. So drinking moderately isn’t exactly the message designer Merve Kahraman was pushing for when she came up with these rings, but that’s what people wearing them will have to do anyway.

These rings with attached glasses are part of the Merve’s Seduction Series, and they will be used exclusively at private events and parties to celebrate the exquisite aromatic profiles of Remy Martin.
