I always make it a point to have my laptop fully charged the night before I take it anywhere. This is mostly due to the fact that I don’t want to carry my big-ass charger around. Now that Dart: the world’s smallest laptop charger has developed into a Kickstarter project, I’ll be able to start slacking on my overnight charges. It doesn’t matter if you own a PC or Mac, this universal charger was made to be just that – universal. They’ve used patented MIT technology called very high frequency (VHF) power conversion, while packing a 65W adapter and 2.1A USB charger into a 2.5 cubic inch package with a six-foot cable. Check the Dart Compatibility List to make sure your model is covered and you’ll be thanking us once yours has arrived in the mail.
I’m actually shocked that “selfies” are barely hitting the main stream. This has been happening since the camera was invented, but since mobile tech is all of the hype these days have a little bit of an understanding. HISY was invented for the selfie and it assists you with taking a selfie by simply connecting it to your device via Bluetooth and pressing the button. It works up to 90 ft. away, doesn’t need a coinciding app to work and the battery lasts more than two years! It’s compatible with iOS7 devices or later and is ready to take on your dome-piece one selfie at a time.
We honestly didn’t know that the world’s first true atomic watch was barely hitting the scene. The so-called atomic watches out there don’t really do the job, having to rely on government radio signals that aren’t always in range. This one however is being dubbed by its creator as the “world’s first true atomic wristwatch.”
Prices have dropped, capabilities have risen and bringing a 3D printer into your home is coming a lot faster than we had expected. The Micro 3D Printer is the perfect example of it and by their Kickstarter goal being shattered in less than 48 hours, it seems the consumer-base is pretty pumped on it too. It’s micro design is something in itself, but several other innovative features make this 3D printer a top contender for #1 in the growing consumer-friendly market. It uses both ABS and PLA filaments (your choice), utilizes user-friendly software to design your 3D objects and is the most quiet 3D printer ever made, which means you can put something to print before bed time and sleep like a baby.

While we sit here and drool all over our keyboard for the Das Keyboard 4 Ultimate, it doesn’t really bother us that we are probably going to ruin our current keyboard just to buy the Das. You’re probably thinking, “where are the letters?” Good question. This keyboard is made specifically for the cool people who don’t need them and the ultimate gamer. Each Das is made from the highest-quality materials, are designed with high-performance, gold-plated mechanical key switches lasting up to 50 million keystrokes, and the anodized aluminum top panel adds a standout-quality touch. Functions include a dedicated media control with an over-sized volume knob, an instant sleep button to save energy and the footbar to raise the keyboard also doubles as a ruler (interesting).
If you’ve ever lost your wallet then you know that it’s one of the most gut-wrench feelings you can ever feel. Good thing there are innovative companies doing innovative things and they team with other innovative companies to make innovative things like the new Parabellum accessories that feature TrackR technology. The new accessories consist of a Free Range Bison, Hand Skived Leather Parabellum wallet along with a key fob crafted from the same leather. Both containing the TrackR devices, you can wirelessly monitor your wallet or keys from the Parabellum TrackR app in three swipes or less and if separated from your goods by 100 feet, both your phone and items begin to beep, followed by a GPS pin of the location. Both items are limited to 100 pieces, so act fast!
One year ago, Thermodo annihilated their Kickstarter goal by percentile’s you couldn’t even imagine. Just going to their beautiful website makes you want to buy this thing right off the bat. There are two versions of the tiny little weather-telling gadget; Thermodo and the Thermodo Premium. Both are made from aluminum, but the premium uses a higher grade in anodized aluminum. Simply plug this key chain-sized device into the auxiliary jack of your iPhone or Android phone and let the coinciding apps help you with your weather measuring needs, while third-party apps like Shade, Hub and Temperatus add-on to the fun. Future meteorologists are drooling from the mouth right now.
Having a laptop battery crap out is one of the worst feelings ever. But thanks to the genius minds behind BatteryBox, it’s an issue that’s on the way to being resolved. According to Y Combinator start-up Gbatteries, if you charge a battery to 100 percent, it rapidly degrades the battery itself and after many cycles, the battery capacity declines. With their latest product, Gbatteries is claiming that you’ll be able to charge your laptop batteries to full capacity and not suffer the rapid degradation.
