GoPlug Charging Bag Is An Airport-Dweller’s Dream Come True

Post a Comment

We’ve all been there – stuck in a boring airport, trying to entertain ourselves with laptops, phones and tablets, but fearful of the their ever dwindling battery lives. And what about the modern business-person, their head in their hands, a dead battery standing between them and their phone calls and emails? GoPlug to the rescue!

GoPlug is a range of travels bags containing a lithium ion polymer battery, standard and USB charging ports, and an extension cable. It’s a simple idea, but surprisingly the incorporation of these charging technologies into a bag is a first, claims GoPlug’s creator Josh Cross.

2 Comments

Why can’t you use your keyboard as a mouse? What would be more intuitive than that? Those questions are now answered with the Combimouse, the first freestanding keyboard to put the two together, into one seamless device.

Weighing less than an Apple Magic Mouse, the Combimouse is one of those “why didn’t I think of that” devices that makes so much sense it hurts. Invented by Perth, Australia computer nerd extraordinaire Ari Zagnoev, the mouse/keyboard combo has been an obsession since he invented it back in 1999.

Mycestro: The Next Evolution of The Mouse

Post a Comment

The computer mouse has made leaps and bounds from the early days of the clunky paperweight on a foam pad and even further from the little red dot in the middle of the keyboard. However, the mouse still isn’t nearly as intuitive or ergonomic as it could be. Mycestro plans to change all that with the new 3D mouse that fits snugly on your index finger and allows you control computer functions with the simple gesture of your hands.

This simple idea is an evolutionary leap – perhaps not as far as being able to control our computers with the power of our minds – but a giant leap nonetheless. The Mycestro mouse began as an idea that came to mechanical engineer, Nick Mastandrea in a flash of genius when he witnessed a fellow traveler struggling to use a traditional mouse within the confines of an airplane cabin.

VIVAX: Finally a Laptop Case You Can Hit With a Hammer or Run Over With Your Car

1 Comment

That’s right, VIVAX , the military grade transport case of every potential spy’s dreams has been created to form the most innovative laptop case on the market, and that means it’s crushproof, waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, and mudproof.

We’ve all been there before: reenacting James Bond and the opening chase scene in Casino Royale you ran after your friend, forced them into submission high up on the office building roof, and in your struggle to attain the precious data stored on his laptop the backpack straps slip and the bag falls into a massive pile of landscaping dirt — No? Just me?

And even after the computer survived the fall, the shock, and the rain, the dust and topsoil pilfered its life by ruining the motherboard; the fabled spy data was lost. Playing pretend your buddy had to be reimbursed for losing his work laptop in your little game . . . at least until now!

Querty Power: Turn Any Tappable Surface into a Keyboard

Post a Comment

Why can’t we turn any surface into a “virtual” keyboard? We have gotten used to the idea of typing solely on physical keyboards, but wouldn’t it be cool to just start typing away on any rigid surface, like your desk or kitchen counter to write an email or a quick reminder about something?

I don’t think I’ll ever miss the feeling of burying my fingers deep in an old clunky keyboard six times just to type my first name – worse if I had to write a paper. But it’s just as bad if I have to write a long text or email on a tiny iPhone keyboard. Florian Kräutli (who resembles a young wizard), a Swiss designer and MSc Cognitive Computing student at Goldsmiths in London has developed a new system for smartphones that allows users to replicate the experience of typing on a physical keyboard, anywhere.

I Stukk the Landing with this Portable & Affordable Laptop Stand

Post a Comment

Travel anywhere with the Stukk lightweight computer stand that easily raises the screen to your eyes.

Oddly enough, I was looking for one of these a few weeks ago as another migraine set in; I had been rocking my MacBook Pro for some 8-12 hours a day on my office desk and my head was becoming perpendicular to my neck and back. I spotted a friend’s office MacBook on a stand and realized I could easily implement a Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad, but I had to raise the screen to eye-level.
