If you upgraded from any older version of the iPhone to the new iPhone 5, you might have an old iPod docking speaker or other device around your house that you can no longer use. Pyle has announced a new Bluetooth adapter that is specifically designed to connect to older iPhone and iPod speaker docks to turn those devices into wireless speakers.
Bodelin Technologies has unveiled a new product that turns your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad into a fully functional microscope. The microscope itself has precision optical glass and supports magnification of 20x to 80x.
While some of the other apps that I’ve come across recently promise to wake you up in different ways, this one strips away all unnecessary functions and goes down to the bare essentials of what an alarm should be.
There are plenty of ways of playing music on your iPhone, but the default player lacks a few functions. This new player app was inspired by the work of legendary industrial designer Dieter Rams, blending both form and function as you rediscover your music collection.
There are many products which have been sold as a “party in a box,” but I’ve never heard the term applied to a music player. This audio player is named thusly because it’s completely self-contained, and aims to be the life of your next party – hopefully waking up your neighbors very late at night.
You know, it’s funny that with all of the R2-D2 merch I’ve seen over the years, I’ve never envisioned the little maintenance droid in wood. But now that I’ve seen him made out of the stuff, I rather like the way he looks.
While I don’t game that much on my iPhone, I have discovered that while touch-based controls might seem intuitive, but they are just awful for space shooters and other kinds of fast-paced action games. That’s one of the reasons why the WynCASE will probably work well.
It really sucks when your gear runs out of juice and you’ve got no easy way of recharging. It’s even worse when you’re stuck somewhere that doesn’t have any power outlets or you just don’t have the time to charge up your gadgets.
I’ve never though of recycling books, since I’m a bibliophile, but there’s something marvelous about these docks that are made from old books. Rich Neeley custom makes them for the discerning gadgeteer.
It sure sucks that Apple changed their dock connector on the iPhone 5, but don’t worry, because plenty of companies are updating their accessories to service your technological needs. Bowers & Wilkins just released their new AirPlay-enabled speakers, which will work will with all iPhones (and recent iPods and iPads too.)
The Philips Wake-Up Light is one of my favorite alarm clocks, but I never picked one up because of the price . Check out this TEAC alarm clock dock for iPhones, which promises to do almost the same thing as the Philips clock, at a more reasonable cost.
The iCade series will add an arcade gaming controller to your iOS devices, but maybe that isn’t good enough for you. It wasn’t good enough for Chris Jorgensen and Andi Greisel either, so they started a Kickstarter project to fund an interesting alternative solution.
It’s early morning. You’re running around, grabbing your stuff and throwing everything in your bag, and just as you’re about to leave, you double back inside to grab your iPhone from the kitchen table – only it’s not there.
I used to love this old, heavy radio that I salvaged when someone dumped it on the corner of their driveway. It was really substantial and the case was completely made out of solid wood. This modern day iPhone dock kind of reminds me of that, since it has the same look and period feel.
