It can be very tricky to get information to and from Apple gadgets since Apple doesn't include a memory card slot. On many of the Android devices on the market all you need do to get information off the smartphone or tablet or onto it is take out the memory card, slip it into your reader, and transfer it to or from your computer. You have to go through more steps to do that same thing for iPhones.
Back in January during CES 2013, we spent a little bit of hands-on time with the Griffin Crayola Light Marker. This product looks like a Crayola branded marker that you or your kids might use to draw pictures. Anyone that has kids knows how messy marker artwork can get. The mess not only gets on anything lying on the table or desk around the artwork, but on your children's skin as well.
If you're constantly losing things such as your keys, purse, wallet, or any other item, Scosche has a new wireless location device you might find interesting. The device is called the foundIT and the location device is designed with the keyring attachment allowing it to be attached to just about anything. The locator hardware is likely too bulky for attaching to your typical smartphone or tablet.
We've seen plenty of remote control toys that are controlled by the iPhone or other smartphones over the years. Typically, these are cars or even helicopters that are already built as soon as you pull them out of the box. iHelicopters has a couple new iPhone controlled remote control cars that are made from little Lego-style bricks.
We have talked about the interesting little Breathometer a couple times in the past. This device is the world's first smartphone breathalyzer. The idea is that when people go out to eat and drink with their friends, they can take the Breathometer with them and use it to determine if they've had too much to drink.
If you're into sports activities of some sort and you like to record your activity using a video camera or smartphone, there are number of cases on the market to allow you to use your iPhone 5. The problem with using your iPhone 5 as a camera for recording action sports is that the camera in the iPhone 5 has a rather narrow field of view. That means you miss out on some of the image because of the narrow field of view the iPhone offers by default.
If you have a LG Nexus 4 smartphone and you want to keep the screen looking as good as the day you bought it, Xgear is now shipping a new screen protector for your device. The screen protector is called the Fantom 4 and it's not some self-adhesive piece of plastic. The screen protector is a thin sheet of tempered glass.
One of the interesting Bluetooth products that surfaced back during CES in January was from a company called BlueAnt. The product itself is called the Q3 and is now available in stores for you to purchase. The device is a premium Bluetooth ear piece that is available online and in AT&T retail stores.
We talked about the Breathometer when the device first hit indiegogo a couple weeks ago. The Breathometer is a hardware device that works in conjunction with an application on the iPhone turning the device into a portable breathalyzer. The idea is that when people go out drinking with their friends they could use the portable breathalyzer to see when they've had too much to drink.
The first time we talked about the Trygger Clip for the iPhone 5 was in December of 2012. At that time, the product had landed on Kickstarter seeking the funds to go into production. The Trygger raised the money needed and moved onto the next step of its process before coming to the iPhone hoards.
