Noke Bluetooth Padlock Doesn’t Need A Key

noke-bluetooth-padlock

The venerable padlock has remained roughly the same for a long time, and Noke hopes to bring it into the 21st century with a design that requires absolutely no key. This digital padlock uses Bluetooth and a smartphone application instead, so that you can unlock it simply by walking up to it. You can also send a temporary digital key to a friend, so they can unlock it as well. This is great if you’re away from your stuff and need someone else to retrieve an item. And finally, if your phone runs out of battery, you can still unlock it by tapping a predefined pattern directly on the Noke.

The device is currently doing the Kickstarter dance, where a $59 pledge will get you an early-bird version.

Oral-B’s Connected Toothbrush Might Make Brushing More Fun

Oral-B_SmartSeries_Bluetooth_Toothbrush

Connected devices are all the rage these days, and the toothbrush appears to be the latest to receive the treatment. The Oral-B Smart Series are a line of electric brushes that connect to your smartphone through Bluetooth 4.0, and give you the ability to track a number of brushing-related metrics. From how often, to how long, to how well you brush will be instantly visible on the app, and perhaps serve as a visual encouragement to practice better oral hygiene. The brushes themselves feature all of Oral-B’s abilities, such as 3D cleaning action and visible pressure sensor lights that warn you when you’re brushing a little too vigorously. Price and availability are unclear at this point.

Light It Up: This Bluetooth Speaker Runs on Fire Power

Pelty Speaker

Pelty is literally the hottest thing to happen to speakers since, well, ever. We say “literally” because it runs purely on firepower provided by a lone candle burning from within. Its design is sleek and simple but eye-catching all the same. Pelty hooks up with your smartphone or music player via Bluetooth and uses absolutely no electricity to play your choice tunes.

Pelty has a built-in thermoelectric generator that converts the candle’s thermal energy into electricity. And in case you’re worried about the speaking catching fire, don’t be, because it’s made from a ceramic material (because its creators are smart enough to consider that angle, that’s for sure.)

Can’t Find It? Just Tag it With iFind

iFind

 

People are forgetful by nature. Even those who normally aren’t have temporary lapses in memory work gets especially busy or if they happen to have a lot on their plate at the moment. Take a second to add up all the time that you’ve wasted looking for your wallet or keys or phone because you put it somewhere absentmindedly and forgot about it mere seconds later. Those are minutes or even hours of your time that you could’ve spent doing something else worthwhile or productive.

There are a number of tags in the market that claim to help you locate your stuff in a jiffy. But few are as hassle-free and easy-to-use as iFind.

redesign_mainframe_630x473_(1)

Hate it or love it, the iPhone is not about to get a physical keyboard. Most of us are ok with this by now, but there’s a legion of ex-Blackberry users and old-timey types who still long for the warm fuzzy feels that only a physical keyboard can provide. This Bluetooth Keyboard Case has such a keyboard, and it’s made specifically for the iPhone 5/5S. Just slide the phone in, slide the keyboard down, and peck away. Bluetooth takes care of the connection, while the typing surface offers up 50 keys for your communication needs. That includes numerals, symbols, brightness adjustments and even music playback controls. Normally you’d be expected to pay $69 for it, but after today’s deal it’s $39.

No one ever really gets that excited about a Bluetooth headset. But what about a $20 Bluetooth headset? The one you’re looking at right now is tiny, gives you 5 hours of talk time on one charge and instead of costing its usual $90, it’s $19.99. That’s a steal. The only other thing worth mentioning on this product is that it has a touch sensitive interface, rather than hard buttons you have to press.
