Miniot Wood iPad2 Cover

(photos originally uploaded by DesignArea)

Every now and then I come across gadget accessories that takes my breath away. It just happened now when I discovered the Miniot Wooden iPad2 Cover. The companies about page put a huge smile on my face. All it shows is a “Team Photo” (below). How can you not buy a product from what looks to be a Dutch family enterprise? Hat tip Miniot, your iPad2 cover is a beauty.

(thank you Karin who saw it over at DigitalLiving)

voltitude

Switzerland-based Eric Collobmin created Voltitude, an ultra-light two-wheeler – a sort of bicycle-scooter hybrid – that can be driven on Swiss and EU roads without a licence, plate nor helmet. The simplicity with which it folds is impressive. Its powerful electric motor and latest generation lithium battery allow you to cover over 18 miles on a single charge. Effortlessly.

They called the product Voltitude — a fusion of Volt and Attitude — because, as they say, time has come to change our attitude towards urban mobility and because electric technology is now mature enough to enable us to do it.

Needless to say I’d love a Voltitude for here in Brooklyn.

This Aphrodite mini sculpture will bring elegance and class to your workspace with the 4 port USB hub as the base.

RSS5000

RSS5000 is a new RSS feed reader for iPad that made me look. I think this could be it, the first RSS reader I will stick with! Why? I don’t like not to see content in its original environment and RSS5000 seems to solve that problem. RSS5000 connects to your Google Reader account and allows you to swipe through your feeds as a stack of whole web pages. It feels sort of like flipping through your favorite websites on magic internet paper.

iPhone Amplifier

My friend Keren sent me a link to this iPhone Amplifier. It totally made me laugh. No, I would never buy it, but it shows how inventive people are when it comes to iPhone Accessories. I then Google-Image-Searched the word ‘iPhone Amplifier’ and found some other interesting designs and hacks:

iVictrola iPhone/iPod Dock

The Phonofone III looks like a gramophone from the future.


or take this super-low-tech iPhone Amplifier. All you need is a toilet roll. (via DIY Life)

iPad Stylus

Own an iPad? Do yourself a favor and order on of these iPad Stylus. I just spent 1.5hours with it surfing/browsing/reading on my iPad. Such a pleasure to navigate. (If G didn’t have one already, I’d totally buy him one for the holidays!)

Glif for iPhone 4



The Glif is a simple iPhone 4 accessory with two primary functions: mounting your iPhone onto a tripod and propping up your iPhone at various angles. The Glif is made from recyclable rubberized plastic and is small enough to fit snugly in your pocket, purse, or backpack. It has a 1/4″-20 thread that fits any standard tripod or camera mount. The Glif is designed to work with a “naked” (caseless) iPhone 4, to ensure a snug fit. Designed and manufactured in America.

The Feed

The Feed is a free Google Reader client for your iPad. It uses proportionately sized stacks to illustrate your read and unread items, rather than badges that cause unnecessary stress.

iBend XL (iPad)

I have written about the iBend for iPhone before. I love using mine. They now just came out with an iPad version. Yay!

The iBendXL was designed to support the iPad in both portrait and landscape modes; it fits nicely inside any standard iPad case and works great while traveling on a plane or train, for entertaining kids, cooking, and more.

I use a felt sleeve for my iPad and at times wished I had a portable iPad stand. Voila, here’s my answer. The iBendXL costs a mere $9.99.

iPhone/iPod Stands

The iPhone Wings Stand is a refreshingly playful take on iPhone stands.

The iPLUNGE™ made me laugh.

Time Flies

Time Flies is is an iPhone App that let’s you keep track of how long it has been since you did something. This is BRILLIANT! And I so need this. Brita water filter, do I need to say more?

Bubble Dot Sleeve

Protect your laptop or iPad from scratching, denting or breaking with the Bubble Dot Sleeves. Made from 100% wool felt each sleeve has a flat side and a molded side with protective bumps.

iPhone Pouch

This could come in handy for some of us that keep dropping our iPhones or losing them in our big giant purses: iPhone pouch.

The Trip


TRIP is a Dutch design, a travel case small enough to be stored in the overhead compartment of a plane, yet big enough to create the highest amount of comfort. Comfort that starts with the possibility to easily transform the suitcase into a chair. Discover what it’s like to be able to relax and work in any situation, even in airports, subways, train stations and parks. The addition of a smart kangaroo compartment allows you to get to your laptop, papers and pencils with ease, without having to open the entire case. In addition, TRIP comes as a version with a custom integrated sound system: top quality speakers that enable you to listen to your own music in the comfort of your hotel room. And whenever you don’t want to use them, simply unplug them and remove them from the case.

Imagine taking the TRIP with you on a picnic: pick a sunny day, bring a good wine and some tasty food and put on your favorite tunes for a perfect afternoon! Even if your iPhone or BlackBerry runs out of power, you can charge it through the TRIP.

Leica or iPhone?

I just gasped: San-Francisco-based photographer Joey Celis produced a custom sticker for his iPhone, skinning it to look like a Leica M9.

“Sorry but I won’t be making these to sell,” writes Celis, who makes a living as a stock photographer. “It’s just a one-off for personal use.” Oh, what a mistake. If he won’t sell it, someone else will. I absolutely want one. #wishlisted

Retro TV iPad dock

Our 4 year Ella old watches her shows on our iPad, as we have no TV. So it comes to no rusprise that this Retro TV iPad dock made me chuckle. #wishlisted

Compass Mobile Stand

Compass by TwelveSouth is the iPad stand I have been wishing for. It is made out of gorgeous steel and is incredibly versatile: Used upright as an easel, Compass lets you view and interact with iPad in both portrait and landscape modes, even if you keep your iPad protected in the Apple case. Turn your iPad on its side, in landscape position, and Compass becomes the ultimate portable theater.

It is about the size of candy bar, requiring very little space in your backpack, computer bag or purse. Store it in the included soft travel sleeve, which matches the Apple iPad case, and you’re ready to roll.

Movie Peg

MoviePeg holds your iPhone and iPad so you don’t have to. I own the iPad MoviePeg and I give it two thumbs up!

Moshi Moshi


You’re all for minimal, sleek design and don’t like to hold up your cellphone up to your ear when on a call? This ergonomic Bluetooth handset by French designer David Turpin will make you look. When plugged into a mobile phone, user can keep talking while checking out a PDA’s email, the internet or calendars.

Oh, so pretty! Moshi Moshi MM03 Bluetooth Cellphone + VOIP Headset

Godzilla

Are you on Flickr and use the Tweetie 2 iPhone app? Then you might want to know about Godzilla. It let’s you skip the image services like twitpic or yfrog when tweeting. When you send a tweet from Tweetie 2, Godzilla uploads the image to your Flickr account. Excellent.

UPDATE: Works like a charm. First upload. YESSS!

MenuPad

I wonder what our upcoming CreativeMornings speaker Rolf Hiltl thinks of this idea of using iPads in a restaurant as the menu and to put in your order.

Felt iPad Case

I keep coming back to this iPad Felt Case and am tempted to hit the purachse button. I own the original Apple iPad Case and while it is superpractical I miss holding/handling the iPad sans case.
