Castor Flavored Toothpicks

Dessert leave a bitter taste in your mouth? Not to worry, Castor’s double-flavored gourmet toothpicks are there to save the day! Well, they’re not available yet, but they will be if Castor meets their goals on Kickstarter for their unusual toothpicks. One tip is coated with flavored powder, while the entire stick itself exudes a delicious, long-lasting aroma.

Use them when you’re picking your teeth (because yeah, that’s what toothpicks actually are for), for hors d’oeuvres, or whenever you feel like overwhelming your senses with a burst of flavor.

Move Files from Your PC to Your Phone and Back Again With iStick

iStick USB & Lightning Flash Drive

Moving files from your iPhone or iPad to your PC and back again can be such a pain sometimes. But it’s something you probably do on a regular basis, especially if you take photos or videos regularly or have a lot of apps installed on your device. An alternative to the usual mess of wires and cables is the iStick.

It’s USB flash drive with a lightning connector on the other end, so you can use it for your Apple devices and for your laptop or computer, too. Just slide the switch from one side to the other to bring out either the USB or the lightning connector. The iStick works with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, and works with a universal iOS app on these devices.

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 Eclipse is a Smart Case for Your Smartphone

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.

Charge Phones and Laptops on the Go With the GoPlug Charging Bag

GoPlug Bag

In this day and age, most people can’t bear to be without their smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other mobile devices. However, this is inevitable as all these gadgets run on batteries and they’ll eventually run out. I mean, you can’t exactly charge ‘em up any time you want to if you’re away from home or traveling and currently don’t have access to an outlet. Sure, unless you’ve got your power bank, but even those need to be charged eventually, too.

Cue the GoPlug charging bags which are currently up for funding on Kickstarter! Aside from being a spacious and sturdy bag that can be used to carry your travel essentials and gadgets, it also comes with a battery pack that has enough capacity to charge your phone up to six times! Its makers add that it can be used to charge tablets twice over, and double the battery life of your laptop when it’s plugged in.

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.

Lix is Everything a 3D Printing Pen Should Be

Sleek 3D Pen

Lix isn’t the first 3D printing pen on the market, but it definitely has a leg up against one of the first that were released (read: the 3Doodler) because its shaped and built more like a pen than some over-sized marker. That means the user can create three-dimensional renderings with better control and more precise strokes and movement.

The Lix 3D printing pen was developed by Anton Suvorov, who will be launching it on Kickstarter in the new few weeks.

Check Out Dart, The World’s Smallest Laptop Adapter

Dart Laptop Charger

If you work out of the office a lot, then chances are you’ve had to deal with lugging a bulging laptop bag around because of the bulky adapter that it came with. Leaving it really isn’t an option, considering there’s only so much–or rather, so little–that you can do on limited power. It’s a problem people face, day in and day out, and it’s one that the folks behind Dart pretty much solved with its release.

Dart is dubbed as the “world’s smallest laptop adapter” and that might very well be true if you look at the images of it. It’s roughly four times smaller than the average 65W charger, with a volume of only 2.5 cubic inches. It comes with a six foot cable and comes with an integrated USB port, allowing you to charge your laptop and another device, like you tablet, at the same time.

Carbon Solar Watch Can Charge Your Battery On the Go

Energy Bionics Watch

Power banks come in handy when you need to recharge your device and are nowhere near a power outlet. Phone cases with built-in battery packs are another option, but they’re limited in availability to certain models only. An alternative to these is the Carbon solar watch by Energy Bionics.

Aside from being a classic-looking timepiece, it also functions as a backup power source for your smartphone or mobile devices that charge via a microUSB port.Continue Reading
