Deal Of The Day: 30% Off On MicFlip Fully-Reversible Micro USB Cable

micflip-1

Reversible USB cables are great. It’s the little annoyances that this type of “innovation” gets us rid of that make us smile. The MicFlip Fully-Reversible Micro USB Cable will make juicing up your non-Lightning Plug device just a little bit easier.

No more fumbling to plug in your micro USB devices. The MicFlip is the world’s first reversible micro USB cable, and it has an incredibly durable nylon braided cord that’ll stand the test of time. Its cord is also tangle-free, so there won’t be a huge crisscrossed mess in your bag or pocket when you pull it out to charge up.

– Gold-coated, corrosion-resistant plugs
– Strong braided nylon cable
– Aluminum housing
– 6-foot long cord
– Rubber protector on connector
– Versatile reversible micro USB design

Now, why they wouldn’t make the USB part reversible as well is beyond me, but it’s ok, since that part normally stays plugged in while the Micro-USB is the one that keeps going in and out of your mobile device. Normally $20, the cable is now $13.99.

NeoNode AirBar Turns Any Laptop Into A Touchscreen Laptop

Airbar-1-800x420

I get a little fidgety when anyone gets their fingers close to my laptop’s screen. But that’s maybe because I’m lazy or old school; I just don’t like the idea of having to wipe my screen down. The reality however is that more and more laptops do come with a touch sensitive screen, and newer operating systems like Windows 10 are built to take advantage of this. If your laptop isn’t enabled, you don’t have to get a new one. NeoNode’s AirBar is a thin stick that sits beneath your screen and attaches magnetically. It projects an invisible light on your screen, which allows it to track your tactile inputs. It simply plugs into a USB port and doesn’t require any installation. However it’ll work better with Windows and ChromeOS, with limited functionality on OS X. And it only works on 15.6 inch screens. Still, at $49, it’s an inexpensive way to add some functionality to your potentially aging laptop. It’s available next month.

This Pop-Up Socket And USB Charger Gets Out Of The Way When Not In Use

pop-up-charger-640x533

You’ve probably noticed: the number of mobile devices that need an occasional charge has skyrocketed over the last few years. From smartphones, to tablets and watches, everyone needs a charge from time to time. It’s a pain to outfit your home with more sockets, especially since they can be an eyesore when not properly integrated into your decor. But the Pop-up Socket and USB Charger changes that by popping out of view when you’re done charging. Just make the effort to cut a 102 – 105mm diameter hole on your countertop and wire it up. This particular model offers 3 x UK plug sockets and 2 x USB ports in an aluminium housing. It’s currently out of stock, but retails for $28.

Cosby Adds Modular I/O Ports To Your New MacBook

Cusby-Modular-USB-C-Adapter-Featured-image-672x372

One USB-C port for everything… Brilliant. Just brilliant… But if you’re, I dunno, a normal person who might want to connect your brand new MacBook to your TV while it charges for instance, the One Port solution just won’t do. There are thus quite a few solutions to this problem on the market, the Infinite USB being a popular one. Another new one is Cusby, the “First USB-C Modular & Expandable Adapter”. It consists of 3 modules that each feature both a male and female USB-C port, as well as a Power charger, USB-A and HDMI connector. You can use one, two, or all three at the same time, in a daisy chain, adding functionality as you need it. There are plans to expand the line to include Thunderbolt, Display Port and Ethernet, and more. It’ll cost you a $75 pledge to get the first three, instead of the expected $100 retail price.
