Evo GoCam: A Wireless Camera That Slips Onto The Back Of Your Phone

Selfie drone has kind of made selfie stick a thing of the past. We said ‘kind of’ because, firstly, not everyone can afford a selfie drone and secondly, not every place welcomes the presence of a drone. The solution? Back to the good’ol selfie stick, or tripod, or you could consider this: Evo GoCam. I am surprised Evo GoCam hasn’t got more attention. I think it might very well be the ultimate selfie tool. It is a camera that measures an astounding 6 mm (0.24”) thin and the best part is, it is part of a smartphone case which means it slips right onto the back of your phone.

Mobile Airbag Smartphone Case Will Safe Your Phone From Drops Without The Bulk

Smartphone cases. They are good in protecting our devices, but they are and will never be a pretty sight. Sure, there are super thin cases, but being that thin, they are only good for preventing scratches and not much for serious drops. Getting a bulkier case is the trade off for more protection against disastrous drops. However, if Aalen University’s engineering student Philip Frenzel has his way, you will soon be able to slip on a smartphone case that is not overly thick, but still provide your device with shock protection offered by clunkier counterparts.

Urban Armor Gear Unveils New Series Of Rugged Cases For Galaxy Note8

Unlike the Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone, Samsung’s newest geared-for-business flagship smartphone, Galaxy Note8, never promised drop protection. That’s one thing I will never understand. I mean, we know very well water and drops are the biggest enemy of a delicate smartphone and yet, so far, manufacturers like Samsung only focus on dealing with dust and water ingress and continue to create beautiful devices that obviously can’t stand any drops. But luckily, there’s Urban Armor Gear to the rescue. The leading designers of lightweight, rugged and U.S. military drop-tested device cases has announced three new series of MIL-SPEC drop-tested cases specially tailor made for the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note8 smartphone.

An Espresso-making Smartphone Case Got Suspended By Kickstarter And We Wonder Why

Have you heard? There was a Kickstarter project which involves a smartphone case that makes espresso. Yes. The caffeinated beverage that so many love. Out of a smartphone case. Sounds like a pipe dream? Well, it probably is because Kickstarter has since halted the campaign, reportedly, due to the failure on its creators’ part to “produce a prototype that met its (Kickstarter) standards.” I am not going to pretend that I am surprised by that (the suspension). I mean, come’on, man. A smartphone case that makes hot beverage? Who are they kidding right? Continue reading An Espresso-making Smartphone Case Got Suspended By Kickstarter And We Wonder Why

DUN DUO: A Beautiful, Suitably Minimal Travel Wallet With A Unique Twist

You know how some products immediately appeals to you and you are not quite sure why? Well, I had that tingle when I first laid eyes on DUN DUO Luxury Travel Wallet. It is not the word ‘luxury’ that draws me; it is the entirety.

Anyways, as the product name implies, it is a travel wallet which means it is sized to accommodate travel essentials like your passport, paper documents, bills, a minimalist wallet, and even a phone.

Artist Is Making Mobile Phone Cases With Hyperrealistic Ear Stuck On It

If you have been surfing tech blogs over the years, you would have noticed the Japanese are pretty awesome at coming up with weird and sometimes, creepy mobile phone cases. So far we have seen stuff like the hand case, shaved ice case and even sushi-topped cases, but we think LA-based artist Sarah Sitkin’s Custom Prosthetic Ear Mobile Phone Case takes the cake in terms of hyperrealism. Sarah “specializes in realistic and unsettling sculptures of human body parts” and the aforementioned case is naturally, well, down right hyperrealistic.
