World’s First Gold-Plated iPhone 6 is Now Up For Grabs

iPhone 6 Gold

The most blinged-out phone in the market has to be the iPhone. Those with money to burn have commissioned custom iPhones time and time again, adding jewels and crystals and even coating it in precious metals. The iPhone 6 is no exception, as a gold-plated custom version of the phone is now on sale.

Gold & Co., is offering a 24-karat version of the newly-released iPhone 6, and word on the street is that big-name celebrities, athletes (including Floyd Mayweather Jr.), and royalty (some UAE royal family members) are interested in owning one. The basic gold-plated version is priced at $50,000, while the bejeweled ones can go up at $130,000.

All that for a phone with an upgraded version coming in a few quarters or so? Whoa!

Check Out Acer’s Selfie Hat for London Fashion Week!

Selfie-Hat

In recent years, people have reached new heights when it comes to vanity. Maybe the era of selfies began when phone makers began putting a camera with each smartphone they made. It exploded when front-facing cameras were upgraded and when monopods (aka selfie sticks) made their way to Amazon.

Someone already came up with the Selfie Brush. Now are you ready for the Selfie Hat? The latter was created by fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis in partnership with Acer. The pink sombrero is eye-catching not only because of all that glitter, but because of an attachment on the brim where Acer’s Iconia A-1 840 tablet is tucked in.

Push for Pizza

Want a pizza for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? No problem. Just fire up the Push for Pizza app on your phone and, well, push for pizza. You’ll be asked to enter your address and credit card info the first time you use it, but you can go straight to ordering pizza and specifying your toppings of choice the next time you use it.

Sure, you can order pizza online or by phone, but nothing beats ordering by just pressing that button. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

You can download Push for Pizza from iTunes here.

‘Ignore No More’ App Gives You the Power to Lock Phones Remotely

Ignore No More App1

 

Nobody likes being ignored, especially mothers. Unfortunately, kids (and even hubbies) these days ignore parents or their SOs for one reason or the other. Sometimes, it’s understandable. Other times, it causes undue panic because one party might assume that the other is in trouble. With this premise, Sharon Standifird created Ignore No More.

It’s an app that locks a paired device at the push of a button. The app has to be installed on both “parent” and “child” devices in order for it to work. (In some cases, that could be “wife” and “husband” or “girlfriend” and “boyfriend.)

TowlHub Holds Paper Towels, Charges Phones

Towlhub

 

It’s a towel holder, it’s a charging hub–no, it’s the TowlHub and it’s actually both. Everyone needs a holder for paper towels because it’s just inconvenient to use them without one. At the same time, people use their mobile devices so much that they need to be recharged every day (or a couple of times a day, if they’re really used that much.)

So presto: instead of being just one or the other, the TowlHub combines both so you can make the most out of your space and your towel holder. Win-win.

The TowlHub retails for $49.99.

Intelligent Blinker is a Wearable Turn Signal for Cyclists

Intelligent Blinker

 

The dark is sometimes a cyclist’s worst enemy. Unlike cars, bikes don’t come equipped with lights and signals so other people on the road might misread the signals (or lack thereof) and, well, you know what happens next. As a response to this, PhD students from Electronics Laboratoryat EPFL have come up with the Intelligent Blinker, which is a solar-powered wristband that glows when the cyclist extends his hand to indicate that they’re about to make a turn.

The Intelligent Blinker is built with a microcontroller, a magnetometer, an accelerometer, and a compass. It comes with a solar panel and built-in battery, which can be charged via USB. Together, these elements might just save countless lives and prevent numerous accidents.
