Cefaly Electric Headband Zaps Away Your Migraines

Cefaly Migraine Zapping Headgear

Headaches are a pain, both literally and figuratively. Much as you’d like to work, exercise, or even just watch a TV show, oftentimes a headache will compel you to either rest or sleep because it makes doing whatever become a huge challenge. But how awesome would it be to have an instant cure to headaches without having to pop any pills?

That’s what Cefaly is here for. It was recently approved by the FDA and it’s basically a battery-powered plastic headband that sends electric pulses to one of your nerves (specifically, the trigeminal nerve). A randomized study reported that participants experienced fewer headaches with such electrical stimulation–about 71%, which is an impressive figure.

Point and Click, Point and Shoot with the Camera Mouse

Camera Mouse

What’s one thing that you constantly take with you when you’ve got your laptop? Unless you’ve mastered scrolling and maneuvering through documents, spreadsheets, and canvases on image-editing software with just your touchpad, then your answer to that question would be your mouse.

When you’re in front of your computer and on a roll and happen to see something worthwhile that you want to take a picture of, would you actually stand up and walk across the room to grab your camera or smartphone to take a shot? If you answered no, then you’ll find this Camera Mouse worth having.

Not Just For Gaming: Smoking Out of a GameCube and the E-Cig Connection

VapeCube

What have you done with your GameCube aside from play games on it? Most people would say that’s all they did, but the dudes from the Nebula Vaping Lounge who were behind this awesome modded GameCube e-hookah can say that they at least smoked a few on theirs. E-hookahs and e-cigarettes are closely related, with the latter being such a hot topic these days.

In fact, my friends and I debated on the merits of e-cigs over our weekly Saturday brunch and things got heated pretty quickly (okay, enough with the puns!)

PhoneSoap Charges Your Phone And Sanitizes It, Too

Phonesoap Charger

 

Would you press your cheek against a toilet seat? I wouldn’t. But like me, you probably wouldn’t think twice about picking your phone up and holding it up to your face to make or answer a call. But here’s the kicker: a study done a few years ago has revealed that some phones are actually dirtier and more germ-infested than toilet seats.

It makes sense, considering how people don’t really wash their hands before tapping the screen or wipe their phones down with alcohol regularly. If this little tidbit bugs you, then you might want to get the PhoneSoap. It’s a charger that also works as a phone sanitizer. Just pop your phone into the chamber and activate the built-in UV-C lamps to sanitize your phone in just four minutes. It comes with a built-in 5V USB port, which works with most phone cables nowadays.

The PhoneSoap Charger is available for $50.

iRecorder iPhone Speaker: Play New Beats With a Vintage Vibe

iRecorder

 

Remember those vintage recorders that you used to carry around way back when they were the hottest gadgets around? Digital music players and smartphones have rendered them obsolete, but they’re about to make a comeback in a roundabout sort of way.

The iRecorder Speaker is a handy speaker that’s compatible with the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5. It sports that vintage recorder look on the outside, but it won’t be able to play your old cassette tapes. However, it will be able to play the tunes on your phone. Just pop your mobile into the cassette slot and push down the orange play button.

The iRecorder comes with a pull-out carry handle and a USB charging cord. It can be powered by a micro USB or batteries, just like your old recorder. It’s available online for $50.

High-Tech Fashion: Earbud Earrings

Earbug Earrings

 

When tech and fashion collide, this is what you get: earbud earrings. They’re basically earphones with a dangling bird decor right behind the buds, so they double as earrings when you put them on. This is one of those things that people will absolutely love or hate when they see it. So which side are you on?

Personally, I think it’s a fun way of jazzing up earbuds. Colored and bejewelled earbuds are already available in the market, so this isn’t the only way to do it, but it’s certainly unusual. That said, I can see how many people will dislike this simply because of how it looks and the fact that it can add some additional (and unwanted) weight on each of the buds.

They’re available online from Maxiga for $27.

Bored with the usual crop of power banks that are available in the market? If you’re a huge fan of Star Wars and are looking for something other than the usual rectangular power banks, then you might want to check the Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber Battery Charger. It essentially looks like the handle of a lightsaber, with the microUSB ports located at its base.

Since it is a lightsaber charger, it also has LED light that glows red with the flick of a switch. So you can, you know, play pretend once in a while when you’re bored and when you need to recharge the power bank or charge up any of your devices.

3D Chocolate Printer

Food printers aren’t just a figment of your imagination anymore. Although there’s still a long way to go before their commercial release, several developers already have them in the works. The latest of these is the Choc Edge 3D printer which, as its name suggests, prints patterns, sculptures, and whatever you want it to using chocolate.

Pretty sweet, huh? And in more ways than one. Aside from 3D creations, the Choc Edge can also be used to create 2D chocolate designs and patterns on cakes and pastries, which chefs currently make by using pipettes.

All Dock Universal Charger For Your Smartphones and Tablets

All Dock

 

Gadgets have become nearly permanent fixtures in people’s lives these days. Without their phones, music players, or tablets, some people feel incomplete, ill at ease, or inconvenienced, and it makes sense, considering how these devices are used. It’s fine and dandy if you’ve got a few dozen outlets at home, but if you’ve only got a limited number of them (like most people do), then keeping these gadgets powered up can become quite a hassle.

One solution is the All Dock. It’s a charging dock for multiple devices so the number of chargers you’ll need for multiple gadgets drops down to one. It’s compatibility with gadgets from multiple manufacturers, including Apple, Android, Samsung, Sony, HTC, Kindle, Nokia, and Huawei, is a definite plus.
