This folding bicycle helmet isn’t as scary as it sounds

Someone made a folding bicycle helmet, their intention being the conservation of space in one's bag while out and about, and naturally it sounds suspicious. A helmet is, in some cases, the only thing standing between the road and your skull. One would assume a folding helmet would be less capable of protecting said skull due to its propensity toward, you know, folding. That's not a concern, though, according to the team behind it: Fend, the collapsible bike helmet, features a special joint system that will keep it open and secured when you need it most.

X-Connect magnetic USB cord works with any phone

X-Connect magnetic USB cord works with any phone

A fellow by the name of Vinson Leow had an idea for a smartphone cord that would replicate the better bits of the power cord for the MacBook. Apple is moving on to USB-C for power cords for notebooks, but it could be the perfect time for the mobile universe to pick up what's been left. X-Connect is a two-part device. One is a converter plug (a tiny plug) which fits into the smartphone. The other is a cord which connects magnetically to the converter.

iLDock brings charging, headphone use back to iPhone 7 for $10

The new iPhone 7 has been available for just over two weeks now, and if there's one trend that's becoming immediately apparent, it's ways to restore a standard 3.5mm headphone jack to Apple's latest smartphone. The 3.5mm to Lightning adapter included in the iPhone 7's box might be enough for some users that plan to stick with wired headphones, but for many other there's still the dilemma of charging and listening to music at the same time.

Fuze battery case for iPhone 7 includes a headphone jack

If you still haven't gotten over the fact that Apple "courageously" killed the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, or if the idea of using a dongle to be able to charge and use headphones at the same time is your personal form of hell, then a new third-party phone case might have just what you're looking for. The makers of the Fuze Case have just launched an Indiegogo campaign for a solution that not only features a larger battery, but a built-in headphone jack as well.

BRAVEN 405 HD Bluetooth speakers will survive a pool party

We take our smartphones with us everywhere, sometimes even to places too risky for those expensive pieces of equipment.

Not with BRAVEN’s new 405 Active Series speaker, which can blast out tunes in HD quality, while your smartphone keeps safe and warm at a distance or inside a bag.

DJI Mavic Pro’s secret weapon sits on your head

This morning the DJI Mavic Pro was introduced with a headset by the name of DJI Goggles, delivered with a single video showing how DJI's newest drone might be paired with their also-brand-new VR headset. This headset works with what they call OcuSync, allowing the user to receive video directly from the drone, not the controller, putting them as close as possible to live action piloting. These goggles - or this headset - might be the most awesome part of the whole system.

Sonos PLAY:1, PLAY:5 comes to Apple.com, Apple Stores on Oct. 5

Sonos PLAY:1, PLAY:5 comes to Apple.com, Apple Stores on Oct. 5

By doing away with the 3.5 mm headphone jack, Apple has placed its iPhone eggs in wireless audio equipment basket. And not just wireless, Bluetooth headphones, but wireless speakers as well. When it comes to the latter, there is perhaps no brand that rings louder than Sonos. It was only natural that the two would eventually forge closer ties, which happens today as two of Sonos’ most popular connected speakers, the PLAY:1 and the PLAY:5, head to Apple’s online stores and, by next week, physical retail stores as well.

The Best iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Cases in 2016

While we like to fawn over the design and finish of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, there's a cold hard truth most of us don't want to address: we're just going to stick it in a case. That's especially true if you have (or plan on buying) the Jet Black model, which even Apple says scratches far too easily.
