The MiLi Pico Projector 2 turns your phone into — you guessed it — a projector! Complete with a LCOS LED micro video projector, speakers, and a built-in stand, it’s the perfect gadget to turn your phone into an entertainment center. Oh, and if that’s not enough, it also has a built-in 2800mAh battery that charges your phone while it’s hooked into the device. Pretty nifty.
One of the big problems with the current state of the VR art is that it really doesn’t fully engage your senses. But how do you get haptic feedback for your tootsies? Taclim’s tackling that with prototype VR shoes that will let you feel it as you’re virtually tiptoeing through the tulips and wading on the shore.
This is another one of the must have iPhone accessories and the last one of the best iPhone accessories present in this article. It’s a slim fit case with crystal clear back panel and shock-absorption features. Responsive button covers, accessible cutouts and raised screen & camera bezels. Meets latest military standard [MIL-STD 810G-516.7] for increased shockproof protection.
As a little aside, there were a couple companies that were trying to tackle the combination of music and VR. Aerodrums, a company that allows you to drum without a drum set, has just introduced a VR component. Aerodrums works with traditional drum sticks that have reflective balls at the tip and reflective panels that are attached to your feet. A camera then captures any movements made, allowing you to drum without a physical kit (and, when fed into headphones, without making any noise!). The new upgrade takes this same format but now allows for more immersive drumming using a VR headset. Some drumming pros I spoke to said that although they might not use the VR component themselves, they could see it being incredibly useful for beginners, and as a tool for delivering drum lessons. This was the overall vibe I got from most VR experiences — perhaps fun for beginners, but in terms of a viable alternative for pros, not quite there yet (or maybe just not needed).
These bands for your wrists and ankles use accelerometers and an app to coach you to develop more graceful movement. That’s neat in itself, but their ability to approximate full-body motion makes me think they’d be a great start for a consumer motion-capture system. That’s just how I roll.
Nearly all iPhone models sold on apple.com are “unlocked” — which means your iPhone isn’t tied to a single carrier. Your iPhone will only be tied to your carrier if you choose carrier financing from AT&T or Verizon.
Don’t forget the WIN stamp. Although sometimes it feels like there are significantly less opportunities to utilize it, it’ll just be that much more epic when you do. A big fat WIN of black ink is a great way to show your child that their fridge art has reached the next level of awesome. Acceptance letters mean that much more with a little extra WIN on them. Maybe use it as a highlighter to spruce up studying for that boring history class.
Robot 3E-A18 is Honda’s social empathy robot. The company says it’s meant to represent the idea that robots can support people by providing a sense of compassion and understanding. In a demo at CES, the roving robot’s glowing face frequently changed its expression as it greeted the crowd. Honda’s 3E-B18, comparatively, is a robotic chair concept, while 3E-C18 includes cargo space for transporting materials.
Apple has done it yet again: by launching a brand new generation of iPhones, this time in the form of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus that will see off the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Incidentally, the previous generation iPhones have now been given a price drop, so woe to those who could not wait for one more day before the iPhone 8’s release and picked up the previous generation handset. Just what kind of goodies can we expect from the new iPhones?

Some people like to take notes by hand, but then if you want to share said notes with someone, you have to type them out, making twice the work for yourself. The Smarson SmartPen solves that problem, automatically capturing your notes in digital files as you jot on a piece of paper. Cool, right?
You love your iPhone, but as powerful as it is, there are some things it just cannot do alone. It cannot, for example, stream music for an entire room full of people. It cannot reliably power itself on a single charge for three or four days. It cannot take close-up photos of insects. And it cannot strap onto your arm as-is for those long runs. For all these purposes, you’ll need some accessories. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best iPhone accessories.

I never understood why people get personalized license plates with messages that are so cryptic that the guy behind them in traffic would need to be a codebreaker to figure it out. This LED message sign can be mounted to your rear windshield and programmed with a wireless remote so you get your point across loud and clear. The message even scrolls at three different speeds so you can tempt fate with that 300-pound trucker you just flipped off by fully expressing your feelings. $39.99 – Think Geek

When you’re going on a long journey and your passengers are using their phones/tablets, it can be helpful to be able to charge them en-route. However, with a charging port popped into the 12V DC socket (or 24V if you’re in a larger vehicle), if you have more than one passenger it can lead to arguments over whose gadget is more in need of a boost. The Olixar Triple USB Super Fast Car Charger can eliminate those car-journey squabbles. It comes with three USB ports – including two that are strong enough to charge tablets (2.1amps each) – the other is a 1 amp port for Smartphones. It’s worth noting the 1 amp port is on top (with the two 2.1 amp ports sitting below) as it’s not clear on the actual device.
For about as long as game consoles have existed, players have had to choose between gaming in front of a TV or holding a tiny screen in their hands while out and about. Not so with the Nintendo Switch, the first console that’s truly designed for both at-home and on-the-go entertainment. The Switch consists of a tablet with a 6.2-inch screen with slots for attaching Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers on either side, turning it into a handheld video game machine. But when you’re at home, you can slide the slate into a dock that hooks up to your TV and play it like a traditional console. That “play anywhere, anytime” approach, combined with a stellar games roster, from the recently launched Super Mario Odyssey to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, makes the Switch a true knockout.
Your electronic devices (mobile phone, tablet, iPad, e-reader, digital camera) can be placed on the specially designed lid, where you can safely plug them into your charger. Thanks to two small holes in the lid these cables are also hidden in the E-BOX.
We’ve seen this concept before, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. It’s an HD projector that can supplement your game display by filling your walls with action as you play. It’s still just a prototype, but a girl can dream.
Gather up all of your scented candles and oils and throw them in the garbage. Feel better? If not, you may be interested in Moodo’s Wi-Fi-connected, Alexa-supported scent machine that can make your home smell like an ashram spa or beach party.
I live in an apartment building with humongous, dumb industrial washers and dryers that burn everything and are a big Hercules Laundry Monitoring fail, so I don’t get all the fuss about multicompartment smart washer/dryer combos. But our smart Smart Home folks think these are the wackiest innovation we’ve seen yet and not just because it has two washer compartments and two dryer compartments. It can operate off a single water line even when washing two loads simultaneously, has customizable temperature zones for the small dryer, and can be controlled by your phone.
The Light Light series creates an incredible visual conversation piece. It is like an optical illusion, yet one that is kind to the eyes and easy on the mind. Once you know how it works, it is still fascinating tobehold. It is timeless, classical and, at the same time, contemporary.
In a perfect world, the smartphone is a device that will never get obsolete, will have infinite battery life and of course, storage that never runs out at all. However, reality has proven itself to be a very, very different beast, with many of us juggling with our smartphone storage and wondering just how 128GB of space gets filled up so quickly, when all those years ago with a 40MB hard drive, it more or less took forever to fill up. Halos is here to help with their GoDrive Pro, ensuring that your iPhone will never, ever experience the issue of not having enough space to stash stuff inside.
