Metal iPhone Cases

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am on my 5th iPhone because the stupid things crack every time I drop one.  I have started looking into cases, and am intrigued by Exovault’s aluminum and brass cases.  The rectangleness doesn’t bother me one bit, I’m just wondering what the weight is like?

The 365 Day Alarm Clock

With the 365 day Alarm Clock, New Balance just launched an effort to become a part of your life (even more so, if you love their sneaks) for the next 365 days.  Since I downloaded it this morning I have yet to use it yet but, the 365 day Alarm clock is a pretty smooth iPhone App that’ll wake you up every morning with a video. Now if they could only manage to get all of the New Balance in Japan released stateside, I’d be in heaven.

The Meat Stylus

Apparently using sausages as stylus’ is huge in Korea!

Inspected Gadget: MultiClock for iPhone

Do you enjoy staring at clocks all day? Here’s a pretty one. The MultiClock iPhone app has a few different time visualizations. Not only does this look cool on a docked iPhone or iPod Touch, but I can picture it looking pretty snazzy in fullscreen mode on a docked Apple iPad. Time keeps on ticking, ticking, ticking…

My prediction: Apple reinvents advertising too

Apple’s future, I read yesterday about Steve Jobs’ excitement for the release of his ipad and how proud he is of this moment. It is being spoken of as his greatest achievement, which made me start to think about it and what is possible.

star maps

No, it’s not maps to celebrities homes, it is by far one of the coolest astronomy applications ever for the iphone. The interface feels very “star trek” scifi, especially with all the sound prompts. Check it out, I believe it needs the 3Gs to take advantage of the compass. This video review above maybe from an early version but it gives you a taste of what to expect.

“By holding your iPhone 3GS up against the night sky you’ll see a computer generated map of the heavens. As you pan the iPhone the star map pans in real time, thanks to the app’s Star Spotter function, which links to the 3GS’s compass.”

Inspected Gadget: Altec Lansing iMT620 iPhone Boombox

The Altec Lansing inMotion  iMT620 iPhone Boombox is a pretty sleek, space-age retro looking piece of audio equipment. It has the usual features you’d expect nowadays: iPod/iPhone dock, decent sound loud enough for an apartment party, and a remote.

Why it matters: It has a five hour battery, a telescoping antenna for built in AM/FM radio, and a full size handle. One step better: it comes with travel adapters for US, UK, Europe, China, and Australia.

Ghostgarden for the iphone

Anita Fontaine has just posted first sneak peaks of her Ghostgarden augmented reality experience for the iPhone. The app( its hard to call it a app when it’s an “art experience” but, anyway it uses the GPS and your location to unlock videos as you explore the physical and virtual world.  Ghostgarden has reinvented  storytelling  it…” will guide the audiences through a fantastical cinematic experience. Sublime visual chapters and spatial sounds will enthrall the viewer as they wander through the gardens locating each point of content with an animated map viewer.” Watch the video yourself and be inspired to create something as cool as this.

*Bespoke versions are currently being created for locations in Australia and China.


Inspected Gadget: DLO WallDock iPhone Charger


Charge your iPhone right in the wall, nicely leaning back from the outlet, with the DLO WallDock iPhone charger. Solution to a problem that didn’t really exist. DLO is short for “Digital Lifestyle Outfitters” which is made by Philips, so it’s likely a quality gadget.

Not sure about you but I’ve always got my phone charging in this one particular spot in the kitchen that looks exactly like the photo – which means my phone is on top of a coiled cable, sometimes on top of something else like a container or some papers to avoid getting hit by spills as it sits on the counter. I even had the screen smashed once when a glass fell out of the cabinet onto it. This looks like a winner.
