La Fonction is a Mobile Workstation You Can Carry Around

La Fonction Mobile Workstation

Working out of the office can be such a pain sometimes. Sure, things are a whole lot easier and more convenient with the advent of laptops and tablets, but there are a bunch of things that you can’t take from the office with you when you go. Like your workstation, for example, because that would just be impractical, not to mention nonsensical.

The good thing is that there’s an alternative, and it’s the La Fonction mobile workstation. It folds up neatly into a briefcase when you’re traveling. When it’s open, it has designated slots and pockets for your pens, papers, files, and other stuff that you normally need or use when you’re working.

iPhone Cases Light Up to Reveal Jolly Patterns Whenever You Get a Call

LED Phone Case

These bright and festive iPhone cases are just in time for the holiday season. The cases are clear and have special, holiday-themed patterns etched on the back. What makes them different are how they sort of magnify the effects of the LED flash for alerts feature that’s available on iOS devices.

Essentially the LED on the back of the phone flashes whenever the user has a call or message. When the case is on, it “distributes” that flash, for lack of a better word, illuminating the entire case in the process. I think it’s just right for the season.

The cases are available for $19.99 each.

They Could Be Real One Day: Air Bags for Your Smartphone

Smartphone Airbag

The first time I dropped my phone, it had nary a scratch on it. The second time I dropped it, the screen cracked and it was time for a new phone. The thing is, people drop their phones every day, and protective cases don’t really do much protecting, since they usually break along with the phone.

So to deal with this, the smart, creative, and kooky folks at Honda’s concept lab came up with air bags for smartphones. It hooks up with the phone’s accelerometer, which can detect when the phone has been dropped. Once it does, the air bags are deployed for a (hopefully) safe landing with nothing breaking upon impact.

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.

This iPhone Case Gets Your Gears Turning

Gear iPhone Case

This iPhone case designed by Danny Tasmakis is truly something else. It features a thick frame with a bunch of gears covering the back. The coolest part? The gears are actually movable. They also function as an analog calculator of sorts, as the gears are embossed with the number of teeth on each, so you can work out ratios and the like.

There are even and odd number of teeth gears just to make it that bit more challenging, it’s a great visual to see what direction what gear is going in a gear train. You won’t even have to turn on your phone and it still works. 

You can print the case out yourself if you have access to a 3D printer by downloading the model here. If you don’t, you can also just buy it, although there’s still some minimal assembly required from you to put the case together.

The case is priced at $19.29.

iPhone Carbon Monoxide Detector Case: This Case Could Save Your Life

iPhone Carbon Monoxide Detector Case

Carbon monoxide kills. You won’t know you’re being exposed to it though, because the gas is odorless, tasteless, and colorless, unless you have a detector that will alert you to its presence. It could happen at home, at your office, and even in your car, but most people don’t have detectors installed in all of these places.

Taking this into consideration and the fact that most people don’t go anywhere without their smartphones, David Tyers designed the iPhone Case with a built-in carbon monoxide detector.

Smart Cargo Lets You Take Your iPad Gear On the Go

Smart Cargo

So you’re always carrying accessories and chargers for your iPad around in your bag and you’ve lost a couple of them already because you left them lying around wherever after using them and forgot to keep it when it’s time to leave and head home. You could try to be less forgetful, or you could just get something like the Smart Cargo case to provide you with some extra space that’s dedicated for all your iPad-related stuff. That way, you’re less likely to leave them lying around or stuff them in your bag (that’s already got loads of other stuff crammed into it).

The Smart Cargo is meant to be used in conjunction with the Apple Smart Cover. It is attached to the Smart Cover with the use of 14 magnets. The Smart Cargo is made from durable plastic, but it’s lined with felt on the inside to protect your iPad gear and essentials on the inside.

Shibaful iPhone Case Wraps Your Phone Around Yoyogi Park

Shibaful

Love the feeling of young grass on your feet? How would you like to experience the same sensation on your hands whenever you reach for your phone? That’s what you can expect when you get the Shibaful case for your iPhone.

It’s a lush case that’s modeled after the grass at the Yoyogi Park in Tokyo. The Shibaful might look like a novelty item, but it’s actually a functional piece of art of sorts. It’s made using electrostatic flocking, where five differently-colored fiber particles are dropped from above. This causes the formation of the distinct grassy texture of the Shibaful.

Kickstart This: MirrorCase for iPad Lets You Take Photos and Shoot Videos Horizontally

MirrorCase

Most of the time, you can’t really have the best of both worlds. But with the right gizmo, sometimes you can have your cake and eat it, too.

While the iPad’s rear-facing camera lets you take photos and shoot videos, you’d have to hold the tablet up vertically in order to do so. That makes typing or taking notes virtually impossible. Add that to the fact that you’d still need an app that will let you do both simultaneously. And just when you thought you had to go back to recording stuff with a phone and taking notes with a laptop, along came the MirrorCase.
