I had the honor to sit next to Ping Fu at last night’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Awards Gala and she handed me a an absolutely amazing 3D printed iPhone Case by Freshfiber. I put it on my iPhone and have been fiddling with it nonstop since. The interlinked rings create an incredibly fascinating texture. The rings move seperately from each other so you can jiggle them.
The case was designed by Janne Kyttanen and you can buy it and lots of other cool 3D printed designs over at Freshfiber.
A little over a year ago I received a Jambox as a gift. I admit, I would have never bought one myself, but I can wholeheartedly say I *love* it. It’s versatile, mobile and sounds great to my ears!
Especially now that the new iPhone came out and I can no longer plug it into the dock of my other audio device, I can clearly see the advantage of the bluetooth connection to Jambox. Consider me a fan!
I recently got myself the STM Grip iPad Case. It is fairly slim and comes with two kickstand settings for typing and viewing. My iPad feels well protected from my rambunctious 2 year old, so I’d say mission accomplished. Two swissmiss thumbs up.
(If you’re looking for an extra fun kids proof iPad case, there’s no better one than the iGuy)
What a beauty! This 100% wool felt Macbook sleeve by B&M, was designed to fit the Apple range of MacBooks, Macbook Pros and *NEW* Macbook Airs perfectly. Snug as a bug in fact. It sums up the B&M design philosophy perfectly; there are no frills, no noisy velcro, no exotic superfluous add-ons and no cumbersome zips or fasteners.
I haven’t seen an app that made me go “wowwweee” in a long time. Stilla just did.
Stilla’s photo results resemble a crystal, a 3D object made of facets blending into each other as you turn it in your hand. You can share these fully interactive 3D objects with everyone online, in the browser, full screen. It works best with the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Firefox. (Yes, in this order.)
Stilla is a modern interpretation of the photo you keep in your wallet. A moment to hold in your hand. See for yourself, go to stil.la and rotate the example photo.
Last week I sent out a desperate and slightly frustrated tweet about the the most recent Mac OS Address book app. It’s cumbersome to use, and flat out doesn’t work on one of my Macs. I asked about an alternative and @MaxFenton pointed me to Cobook App.
It’s a small widget that lives in your menubar, easily accessible and intuitive to use. It seamlessly syncs with the OS X Address Book, which is what I want, but without having to ever open address book again.
Interesting twist: Cobook also connects to your social network accounts and automatically looks up pictures, companies, phone numbers etc. At this point, I think I like that, but let’s see, over the long run.
Here, try it yourself. Not sure why, but Cobook app is free.
The Space Bar was built to work with your iMac or Apple monitor and aims to minimize clutter while providing additional USB ports for your computer. After a long day of work, simply slide your keyboard into the designated space below the shelf and store your office miscellany — keys, digital camera, etc. — up top. I like!
