Retro Fighters Nintendo 64 controller is for a new generation of fans

Retro Fighters Nintendo 64 controller is for a new generation of fans

Retro Fighters has created a version of the Nintendo 64 controller designed for a new generation, as odd as that sounds considering the N64 console's retired nature, and it arguably features a better design than the original controller. The controller is targeted at diehard N64 fans who still play on their original console, not emulators. As such, this model has an N64 cable rather than USB, though the company says there are adapters available for using the controller with a PC emulator if you want that functionality.

Smalt smart salt dispenser doubles as a Bluetooth speaker

Smalt smart salt dispenser doubles as a Bluetooth speaker

A new Internet of Things device has surfaced on crowdfunding website Indiegogo, and it's one of the odder gadgets we've seen. Called Smalt, this smart salt dispenser doubles as a Bluetooth speaker, making it easy to add some tunes (and salt) to your romantic dinner. The unit could also double as a centerpiece of sorts, but its massive price tag means many people will probably just stick to shaking salt onto their food the traditional way.

Professor Einstein robot is your own personal teacher

ORII ring puts your smartphone on your finger

ORII ring puts your smartphone on your finger

As the song goes, if you like your smartphone you should put a ring on it. In a sense, ORII does that, but in the opposite direction. It practically puts your smartphone in a ring that, in turn, you do put on your finger. But this is no Bluetooth controller for your smartphone. This is, instead, a Bluetooth “headset” you wear on your finger that lets you take and make calls by simply placing your finger on your ear. And, yes, you’ll look crazy while doing so.

Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E is a more conventional Android Wear watch

Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E is a more conventional Android Wear watch

Chinese startup Mobvoi probably wouldn’t have even made a blip if not for the fact that it had Google, and later Volkswagen, behind it. Despite that Google connection, Mobvoi tried to carve its own path with its own Ticwear OS, at least for the Chinese models. While not exactly a failure, its users have started to ask for more and Mobvoi eventually obliged. So now with the new Ticwatch S and Ticwatch E, the smartwatches won’t be straying and will run Android Wear from the get go.

Youyota Sailfish OS tablet tries to revive a failed Jolla dream

Youyota Sailfish OS tablet tries to revive a failed Jolla dream

Just because you’re a somewhat popular company that managed to successfully deliver a crowdfunded product doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to do it again. Not even if you rake in more than $2 million in funding. That’s the bitter reality that Jolla faced last year when it had to cancel its successfully funded Sailfish OS tablet. Some, however, still believe in that vision and have taken to Indiegogo to try and resuscitate the Jolla Tablet, now as the Youyota Tablet. And based simply on numbers, it seems there are still many who still believe in that dream too.

Kado is a wall charger that fits in your wallet

Kado is a wall charger that fits in your wallet

There are two problems when trying to charge via wall sockets. One, there are so few such outlets. Two, wall chargers take up precious space. Even the iPhone's charger, short as it may be, is a fat and thick cube. If you're the type that obsesses over whether you have room for a charger in your bag, let alone your pocket, then the Kado is for you. It's a wall charger that is not only thinner than the thinnest smartphone, it thin enough to even fit inside your wallet.

Nintendo Switch dock goes portable with SFANS adapter

Nintendo Switch dock goes portable with SFANS adapter

One of the major advantages of the Nintendo Switch is the fact that it's portable. Unfortunately, that portability factor only really applies when you're using the console in tablet - playing it in TV mode requires that you use its somewhat bulky dock. Up until now, there wasn't a very good way to play the Switch on a TV without using the dock, but SFANS is looking to change that with its new portable dock for the Switch.

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

InkCase i7 gives the iPhone 7 an e-ink screen on the back

The YotaPhone seems to have struck a chord among some smartphone users. The ability to have some information, or picture, always on display even when the phone's screen itself is off definitely useful. And having a handy ebook reader with you all the time is something bookworms would love. But the problem with the YotaPhone is not only was it limited to Android, it also meant having to buy a new phone, even if you were already an Android user. iPhone users, on the other hand, were out of luck. Now, however, they have fighting chance with the InkCase i7 finally launching on Kickstarter.
