Magic Phone Stand: Whatever Floats Your Phone

This phone stand is called Magic for a reason: it makes your phone look like it’s levitating. It doesn’t actually make your phone float in mid-air, but it does look pretty neat, having your phone held in place that way.

The Magic Phone Stand is more than what its name indicates it is, though, because it’s also a charging cable. You might be wondering how that stiff ol’ stand could also be a cable, but, well, New Jersey-based Martinka Magic figured it out and came up with this. The stand was successfully funded on Kickstarter a few days ago, but don’t fret: you’ll be able to order the unique stand-slash-cable soon on its maker’s website.

3D-Printing Pen CreoPop Doesn’t Use Hot Plastic As Its ‘Ink’

CreoPop 3D-printing pen

Th 3D-printing pens we’ve seen thus far work by melting plastic “ink,” which then harden as it cools into whatever shape the user chose to draw or form. Think of it like a glue gun in pen form that extrudes plastic instead of glue, and there you go. Bringing something different to the table, however, is CreoPop.

CreoPop takes the heat out of the equation, and it’s all possible thanks to the type of plastic that it uses: a light-sensitive resin that hardens upon exposure to UV light. Since it doesn’t use heat, it opens the door for many more applications and makes it safer to use for those who are normally clumsy and for kids, too.

Lomo’Instant Camera: Instant Photos With Added Options

Lomo’Instant Camera

Instant cameras aren’t anything new, but Lomography manages to bring something new to the table with the Lomo’Instant camera. If you’ve ever used a Polaroid or a Fujifilm Instax, then you know that shooting options for instant cameras are quite limited. Basically, you just point and shoot and hope for the best as you wait for your photos to develop.

That’s where the Lomo’Instant camera starts to differ. First of all, it’s packed with a bunch of additional options and extra features so you can tweak settings and shoot more creatively. It’s programmed with three shooting modes, so you’re in control when it comes to lighting. Plus you can shoot unlimited multiple exposures so you can experiment and combine multiple shots into one frame.

WalletM8

Nothing’s more of a hassle than having to pack up a whole bunch of accessories for your phone, tablet, camera, and all the other gadgets you’re bring on your trip or out-of-office assignment. Most of the time, what you need is a stand and a tripod for various media functions, like recording and streaming.

There are a number of stands-slash-tripods that are compatible with a range of devices, but few are probably as compact and versatile as the WalletM8. It’s a tripod and stand not only for most of your mobile gadgets, but also for your files and documents for when you want to view them upright. What makes it awesome is the fact that it’s the size of a credit card and is only 2 millimeters thick!

Charge, Connect and Locate Your Smartphone Plus Store Stuff with GOkey

GoKey

So you’re thinking of going on a trip. Your phone might be sleek and compact, but its accessories aren’t. You’ve got an external memory card to store extra stuff, a locator that comes with a sticker and a remote in case you lose your phone, plus a charger completer with its cord to power up your phone when it’s running low on juice. You might as well get a bag to store all this stuff…or you could skip everything and just get the GOkey instead.

The GOkey is a compact device that functions as all of the above, minus the bulk. It fits easily into your keyring so you won’t have to think twice about it, since you wouldn’t leave the house without your keys now, would you?

Lunecase

 

You’ve seen one case, you’ve seem them all. Or have you? The Concepter team brings something new to the table with the Lunecase Eclipse, which is a case for your smartphone that’s equally smart. It has the capacity to receive notifications from the iPhone and display an icon accordingly at the back to let you know when you’ve got a new message or incoming call.

The coolest part is that it’s powered by electromagnetic energy, which is emitted and surrounds most devices, including your iPhone. In short, it doesn’t need any batteries and it doesn’t need to be charged to power up.

Python Cords Keep Your Chargers From Breaking

Python Cord

The problem isn’t the charger; it’s the cord. I’ve had several chargers for my laptop break and it’s not so much the charger itself than the cord connecting it to my laptop. This is a problem experienced by laptop and Macbook users, especially those who travel a lot. The cord bears the brunt of the stress as you wrap it around your charger or cram it haphazardly in your laptop bag because you’re in a rush to leave.

The solution comes in the form of the Python Cord, which wraps around your charger to fortify and provide extra support at the stress points (and common point of failure for the charger cords) to prevent the cords from breaking.
