Here’s what we found interesting this week!
#1 – The Instagram Camera
The designer of this Instagram-look-a-like camera “Socialmatic”, Antonio De Rosa, has entered into a contract with Polaroid to design the concept. “Socialmatic” is a 16GB camera with a 4-inch-wide screen and will let you apply filters to your photos before uploading them to the giant social media platforms; Facebook and Instagram. And will also print out sticky-backed images on a Zink (zero ink) printer!
We think it will get the Instagram-addicts attention… and I may be putting this on my own technology shopping list.
#2 – “Phone x Phone” for retro-lovers
Another accessory for your iPhone! This is one of the many accessories that transforms your iPhone into a retro handset. On this design, the middle button on the handset functions like that of the middle button on the iPhone earphone cable; ending the call or pausing the music. It seems very simple to use, and is selling for around AUD $15.00 ~ seems like it would be a good present idea.
#3 – Snow Goggles come with matching headphones!
Hit the slopes in style! I know there isn’t any snow here in Cairns… but if you’re a snow-addict and travel a lot, these could be the goggles for you!
Dragon Alliance and Skullcandy have come together to make these DX Skullcandy/Ionized snow goggles. They’ll fit while you wear your helmet, have an anti-fog lens, micro fleece lining and 100% UV protection. There’s a lot of other styles and the cost ranges from $77 – $130 online.
#4 – Light your way
This could come in handy! With the FLEXiT Light’s ultra-thin, flexible silicone body it is easy to wrap around tubes, magnetically fasten to metal objects, and bend anyway you want. It uses 16 Lumen TechTM LEDs with three light functions (low, medium, and high). Use it to light up a dark pathway or during Cyclone season it would be great to illuminate an entire room in an event of a power outage. You can purchase it for AU $49.00 on Ebay.
#5 – Recoiling extension cable in your wall
You’ll need a deep wall to make this work! But the idea is great. The Rambler Socket is an in-wall box that contains extra cabling. If your AC cord isn’t long enough, once plugged in give it a gentle tug and the built-in extension cord will come out. Once you’re done, just tug on the cable and it will recoil back into the wall.
