Back in January, Joetsu unveiled a pair of PS Vita cases that had L2 and R2 triggers connected to the appropriate spots on the system’s rear touchpad. However, those cases were compatible only with the second-generation PS Vita, aka the PCH-2000.
We’ve seen a couple of charging cable adapters that mimic Apple’s MagSafe connector. The Gecko on the other hand mimics both MagSafe and wireless chargers using thin magnetic adapters.

This Game Boy concept from German designer Florian Renner is sleek and beautiful. It re-imagines the classic handheld Game Boy for the modern world. It’s called the “game boy up1”. I like it. Hell, I wish I could buy it.

It may sound like an anti-fungal cream, but Canadian company Calimacil actually specializes in LARP weapons, armor and accessories. The company has recently developed a lightsaber that can emit lights and sounds but is safe to use, thanks in part to the translucent foam that they use for the blade.
