our iPhones are power hungry, which prompt us to amass a slew of portable battery-based chargers and case with built-in battery. regardless of which one we choose, we still need to lug along our charger to keep those backup batteries or case charged at some point but that wouldn’t be necessary if we have the JuiceTank Case.

we love first person shooter games, however, we don’t get to sweat it out or feel the heat of the battle. so, it is time to take our first person shooter gaming to the next level with Laser AppTag. it is a laser blaster that works with your iPhones, iPod Touches and even Android Phones, turning them into a real world laser blaster. obviously, Star Wars laser capability is not in the order but rather, this blaster uses totally harmless laser emitter and receiver to communicate between players and its highlight is the lack of physical connection to your phone. yes, it does not dock or occupies your headphone jack to communicate with your handset and neither will it ride on your phone’s battery. no Bluetooth or WiFi magic, its just high frequency sound that is barely audible to human.
