Bleep Smart Cable Charges Your Phone, Backs Up Your Data

Bleep

People mourn for more than just their phones when they lose them. In fact, most are more worried about the data on their phones rather than the actual devices. Tel Aviv-based Company Musers is well aware of this fact, so they’ve come up with Bleep. It’s a smart cable that backs up your phone’s data while you’re charging it so you’re covered in case you lose your phone or damage it beyond repair. It also protects you against hardware crashes, which sometimes happen when you least expect it.

Bleep can back up your messages, photos, music, videos, contacts, calendar, and app history, among other things. It’s also designed to work with its companion app which is password-protected for your data’s security.

Use It, Don’t Brick It: LEGO Flash Drive

LEGO USB

The long wait is over: the official Lego flash drive is finally here. Sure, modders and DIY-ers have made their own equally awesome Lego-inspired USB drives over the years. But the same can’t be said for the lazy, Lego-loving geeks who don’t have the knowhow or are just too lazy to make their own.

The fully-licensed Lego flash drive looks like several plates were stacked one on top of the other. The coolest part? You can use it like a regular brick and stack whatever you want onto it to make it truly your own.

The Lego flash drive is available in a variety of colors and capacities. Prices for 16GB start at $12.99, and it comes with a bonus Lego brick to boot.

Ninja Star USB: Shuriken Save Your Data

Ninja Star USB

The Ninja Star USB isn’t exactly the most discrete flash drive on the market, but it’s definitely one of the most attractive ones out there. As you can see, it’s shaped like a shuriken, the weapon of choice of stealthy ninjas, and while it’s not as sharp as its namesake, it can hold 8 gigabytes worth of data, be it documents, pictures, music, or movie files.

The Ninja Star USB can’t fight deadly computer viruses on its own, but it shuriken keep your data safe as long as you keep it safe. (Pun intended–sorry, I couldn’t resist!) It’s available online for $15.50.

TanSafe

Sun, sand, sea, and… thieves?

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all your stuff when you’re at the beach, with so many distractions and all. It’s easy pickings for anyone with unscrupulous intentions if you just lay your stuff by your towel or umbrella while you get a tan, read a book or heck, even go for a swim. What you need is the TanSafe. While it’s not 100% fool proof, this stash box disguised as a bottle of suntan lotion might help you keep your stuff more secure.

It’s pretty obscure and people won’t really think twice about it because who doesn’t have suntan when they’re at the beach, right? It has a watertight seal so the stuff inside stays dry, and it’s spacious enough to hold your cash, cards, keys, and even your phone.

It’s available online for $14.

BriefSkate is a Skateboard With a Hidden Compartment

BriefSkate

 

Bikes have their baskets and motorcycles have their trunks. But what about skateboards? Most conventional boards don’t have an extra compartment where you can stash some spare cash or other essential stuff, but the BriefSkate does. Its name is a play on briefcase, which is kind of apt because the way the skateboard opens to reveal a hidden compartment is kind of like how a briefcase opens.

The added weight might slow you down so make sure you keep that spare change elsewhere.

The team behind the BriefSkate will be launching a campaign on Kickstarter soon. You can sign up for alerts on their website here.

Smart Cargo

So you’re always carrying accessories and chargers for your iPad around in your bag and you’ve lost a couple of them already because you left them lying around wherever after using them and forgot to keep it when it’s time to leave and head home. You could try to be less forgetful, or you could just get something like the Smart Cargo case to provide you with some extra space that’s dedicated for all your iPad-related stuff.
