PodCase by Pebble founders charges iPhones and AirPods

PodCase by Pebble founders charges iPhones and AirPods

Odd as they may look, the implementation of Apple’s AirPods was, to be fair, genius. Simply pop out even just one of the two and the connection between AirPod and iPhone is made. And that case doubles as container and charger in one. But it’s also another thing you have to carry around separately and potentially forget or, worse, lose. That’s why a group of dreamers and makers have come up with the PodCase, an iPhone and AirPod battery case in one. And while cases are a dime a dozen on Kickstarter, this campaign is getting a little popularity boost from the founders of Pebble, one of Kickstarter’s earliest darlings.

According to the team behind Gigaboom, this speaker is essentially crushproof with the ability to withstand up to 4,000lbs of weight; it is also said to be bulletproof, though it's hard to imagine when that would come in useful for a portable Bluetooth speaker.

HEXAD Carryall Duffel is a traveler’s bestfriend

HEXAD Carryall Duffel is a traveler’s bestfriend

Technology has greatly changed how we produce content. No longer burned by large professional equipment, we can now stash our gear alongside our clothes and other possessions when we hit the road. That, however, doesn’t meant that every luggage or bag can rise up to the challenges of safely and conveniently storing our portable but still expensive devices, cameras, and whatnot. That is where the HEXAD Carryall Duffel comes in, offering extra rugged protection for sensitive equipment but also has enough room for almost all your things.

LeEco-promoted Scooterboard is a 3-wheeled electric skateboard wannabe

LeEco has announced a new crowdfunding campaign for 'Scooterboard,' a motorized transportation device that is a cross between a 2-wheel scooter and a 4-wheel skateboard. The model aims to fill an electric scooter void that apparently exists in the U.S., at least according to LeEco. The Scooterboard features a three-wheel design, making it something like an electric skateboard, but without the greater risk of falling.

SERPENT Electric Skateboards are making boarding fun again

SERPENT Electric Skateboards are making boarding fun again

For a while, it seemed that the poorly named hoverboards would be the skateboards of the future. That was until they started catching fire left and right and the rest, as they say, is history. Despite the poor execution, particularly by knockoffs, these motorized boards did have some bright ideas. Hoverboards, however, aren’t the boards of the future. This SERPENT-C and SERPENT-W might very well be, though, particularly in their use of electricity and motor to push the skateboarding experience forward. Pun totally intended.

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.

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.
