Love the Avengers? Then you’ll love these officially licensed Avengers USB flash drives, from InfoThink. Instead of portraying the actual Avengers, the USB drives are in the form of a symbolic part of your favorite Marvel hero.
This is how much technology can coddle us: someone’s come up with a charge and sync device for iOS devices that has built-in LEDs to make it easier to plug it in in the dark. I usually just use my iPhone’s own light or feel which end is which, but why go through such arduous processes when you can buy a solution right?
The Microsoft Kinect certainly changed the playing field for gesture-based input devices, though arguably it’s been a cooler tool for interactive experiments and hacking than for gameplay thusfar. Now, a company called Leap Motion thinks they’ve cracked the formula for gesture control on the desktop with their LEAP controller.
Several days ago we saw Disney’s plan for turning everyday objects – including humans – into touch-sensitive interfaces. The MaKey MaKey is a lot simpler than that, but what it does is still very impressive. Any object that can conduct “at least a tiny bit of electricity” – fruits, Play-Doh, humans, water, etc.
We’ve already seen a charge and sync cable that works exactly the same way as this one. But if you’re not confident about the quality or the retailer of that other cable then yes, you will love DualJack.
If you don’t spend much time in the house or in the office, keeping your smartphone or other device charged can be a challenge. There is no shortage of solar chargers and external battery packs on the market, but those things are often slow and might need to charged themselves.
In the old days, envelopes were sealed with wax so that the intended recipient would know right away if anyone else had snooped into her or her private correspondence.
Some people are trying to bring that concept back to life with these porcelain USB drives.
Android phone users don’t have to stick with that boring black charger that came with their phones anymore. If you’re a big fan of the Android platform, then you owe it to yourself to charge up with Andru – the Android mascot USB charger.
I’ve seen pinhole cardboard cameras before, but this is the first time that I’ve seen something like this made by a furniture giant. It was a promotional item, but it makes me think that IKEA might be working on a product like this.
Are you a forgetful klutz who always misplaces flash drives? Are you in the fashion industry and want to have a flash drive that fits your line of work? Or perhaps you’re you a baby with a loose diaper and a need for a flash drive?
I like powered USB hubs, but that doesn’t mean that cute and portable ones can’t be useful too. Check out the Poodle USB Hub that looks like your favorite four-legged friend, but has enough USB ports to keep your gadgets connected when you’re on the go.
