Denture iPhone Case: All Teeth, No Bite

Denture iPhone Case

This isn’t the first time that teeth and dentures took center stage in accessories. We first heard of ConcaveOblivion when they came up with denture-themed fashion accessories, like bangles and combs. They’re back once with more accessories that bite, this time for your phone.

Each case is handmade and features polished dental acrylic veneer. It’s probably not a case for the faint of heart.Continue Reading

Rumor Mill: Budget-Friendly iPhone 5C Might Have Scratch-Resistant Plastic Backs

Low Cost iPhone

As we inch closer to the purported announcement of the budget-friendly iPhone 5C, more information about the yet-to-be-announced unit has surfaced. Apple is really deviating from their usual style, as the cheaper version of their smartphone will reportedly come in a bevy of bright-colored plastic backs. You might recall that the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS both featured plastic polycarbonate housings, and they were pretty much well-received by users worldwide.

A shift back to plastic definitely sounds possible, given that it’s a lower-budget phone, after all. But Apple won’t be going back to the same plastic. According to Apple Daily, the smartphone maker will be using a tougher kind of plastic that is scratch-resistant. They were reportedly able to get their hands on the rear case for the phone and attempted to scratch it with keys to no avail.

Give Your iPhone 5 The, Uh, Throne It Deserves

ireliquary-1

I like my iPhone as much as the next guy, but definitely not as much as Georg Dinkel. This dude spent 6 months building one of the most ornate iPhone docks we’ve come across. I mean, we usually don’t even cover iPhone docks because, well, yawn. But the iReliquary 1.0, as he calls it, is something else. It’s made from rhinestones, gold and silver powder, as well as polymer clay for the main structure. It does work as a 2.1 channel, Bluetooth enabled sound system, and a lightning connector presumably also charges your phone as it sits… in its throne. It’s really all a bit ridiculous but intriguing at the same time. We don’t think it’s for sale, and there’s definitely not another one like it.

Rumor Mill: iPhone 5C Case Turns Up on Amazon

Plastic iPhone 5

For weeks, we’ve been hearing that Apple has a budget iPhone in the works. It makes perfect sense that they’re trying to tap into this market, considering the fact that the regular iPhone is way out of the budget of most people. For years, the Android has been hot in its heels and it looks like the rival OS is gaining more and more ground. There is a wide variety of Android devices available in the market, from high-end luxury phones to affordable but still full-featured smartphones.

Images of Apple’s purported budget iPhone leaked earlier this month. Apple hasn’t confirmed the existence of the device yet, although sources claim that they’ll be launching it this September. Perhaps fueling these rumors even more is the appearance of a case for the “iPhone 5C” on Amazon.Continue Reading

Kii is One of the Smallest iDevice Chargers You’ll Ever Use

Accessory Charger

Nothing is more annoying than going on a trip out of town (or even just across the town) and having your phone or table die out on you. You could get one of those portable, external batteries for some instant extra juice, or you can get the Kii accessory charger instead.

The Kii is a teeny tiny accessory charger that connects and syncs your iDevice with your laptop or portable charger. There’s a Lightning connector version and one with the 30-pin connector that works with older iPhones. It’s especially convenient since its small size lets you attach it to your keychain so you can easily take it with you on your travels.

This 14 Month Old Accidentally Bought A Vintage Car On eBay

toddler_vintage_car-590x330

Handing your kids a smartphone or tablet may sound like a great idea to get some peace and quiet, but that’s until you realize that kids are more than capable of pressing a few buttons and committing potentially colossal blunders. In this case, Paul Stoute from Oregon handed his 14 month old daughter his iPhone, but forgot to log out of his eBay application. Sure enough, she ended up buying a 1962 Austin Healy Sprite! Luckily for Stoute, the car was in terrible condition, and only cost $225; he had been looking to buy a vintage car in the first place, which is why it was so easy for his daughter to complete the transaction. Even more fortunate for him, she didn’t press BuyItNow on the $38,000 Porsche he had also been looking at.

Yes, the car is quite the fixer upper, but the Soutes have decided to keep it anyway with the hopes of having it be road worthy by the time their 14 month old, Sorella, turns 16. And the moral of this story is… don’t ever hand kids your phone. Or at the very least, log out of eBay.

Electric Scooter Uses iPhone As Dashboard

japanese-electric-scooter-iphone

Not the most popular mode of transport in the US of A, a good chunk of the rest of the world loves their scooters. The A4000i from Japan’s Terra Motors is fully electric, with a range of 65km, which should be enough for the average commuter. Reaching top speeds of 65 kmh (40mph), the A4000i features a recessed space on the dashboard in which an iPhone is meant to go. Once there, the phone will display your current speed, as well as battery charge and other information.

Other features include a removable battery, which you can carry inside with you to charge. This is particularly useful if you live in a high rise building, and lugging the whole bike with you inside is not an option. Finally, the battery is rated to last 50,000km (31,000 miles), which is about 5 times more than a standard battery from other e-bikes.

The A4000i will be released this November, mostly in Asian countries. Its estimated price in the Japanese market will be ¥450,000, which is about US$4,500.

Rumor Mill: Could This Be Apple’s Budget iPhone?

Budget iPhone-

Speculations about a low budget version of Apple’s iPhone have been floating around for a while now. Given the variety of Android devices in the market, it makes sense for Apple to want to tap into the budget smartphone market since they clearly don’t want to make it too easy for their competitors.

Several images that are allegedly of the budget iPhone have been leaked over the past few days. It basically looks like a sleeker version of the iPhone, but I think the main difference would be what’s inside the device instead of its exterior.

Sense+ iPhone Dock With Built-In Smoke Detector Might Just Save Your Life

Sense+

People have really begun giving more thought to how they make smartphone accessories. For example, the conceptual iPhone case with a built-in carbon monoxide detector could especially come in handy if you’re wary about carbon monoxide poisoning. Then there’s the Sense+ iPhone dock that does a one up on the case, because not only does it come with a gas detector, but it also has a built-in smoke detector and alarm.

The Sense+ isn’t just a concept though; it’s an actual product and it’s currently up for funding on Indiegogo. It’s a smart dock that comes with a companion app that provides you with custom personal protection options to safeguard the life of you and your family.
