The RokPak Keeps Your Stuff Dry, Charged, And Protected

rokpak-1

There are times where you’re going to want to go outdoors. We know, it’s weird, but it happens. In those occasions, especially when you’re off the beaten path, you might want to consider putting your delicate electronics in a safer place. The RokPak is a waterproof container that keeps your phone safe, dry, and protected from bumps and scrapes all the while charging it thanks to its 12,000 mAh battery and solar panel. There are two USB outputs, as well as a net to keep your other items away from your phone, like your keys and a few cards.

The RokPak consists first and foremost of a tough waterproof case measuring 9.6 x 5 x 2.8 inches (246 x 128 x 70 millimeters). The case is lined with silicone, which makes a nice soft home for your delicate electronics; the makers told Gizmag that the RokPak can even take a fall from four feet (1.2 m) against a hard surface and still keep things safe. There’s a also a silicone net on one side that holds items in place. The case also floats and insulates against extreme heat (temps up to 176°F/80°C) and extreme cold (-4°F/-20°C).

Additional features include an LED flashlight, as well as an emergency beacon that will flash for up to 200 hours if the case falls in the water, making it easier to find.

You’ll have to pony up a hefty chunk of change to get your own: “you can get the RokPak for the early bird price of US$159. After those are gone, the price climbs to $169, then $179, which represents $50 off the eventual retail price of a whopping $229.”

So, what is your iPhone capable of?

iphone
Your iPhone is a machine. It is a step ahead of its time. It is a technology that is pretty smarter than you. Also do you know that there are certain things that your iPhone is hiding away from you. You may think that you know it all when it comes to an iPhone, but trust me on this you will surprised to find out that your iPhone is capable of doing the following things as well.

Well, for starters your iPhone can switch control. This special feature was exclusively meant for people who had disabilities. With this feature you could control the iPhone with your head. Isn’t that amazing? All you have to do is simply tilt your head and you will see magic. Yes, it is totally irritating to type on a small screen any time. A typo or typos are for sure to happen. So Apple came up with a unique feature wherein you just had to shake the cell phone and it will pop up with several option either to cancel or continue or simply undo the typing. Life indeed made easy.

Another thing that you may not know of the iPhone is that it has a feature called location based reminder. So now you do not have to maintain a list of things to do when you reach a certain place. With the help of GPS you can easily get reminders of the things that you were supposed to do, when in that particular place. Many a times your selfies or other clicks come out blur. Thanks to the burst feature you can now take plenty of photos on a single go. All you have to do is hold down the picture button for a continuous stream of photos. How hard can that be now?

It is not easy to click a photo or selfie if you have a touch screen. With the help of volume control feature available on your iPhone you can now click photos with the volume controls on your iPhone. And when you want to charge your phone on a super speed, just put it on flight mode and the phone will charge as fast as ever. The reason for this is quite simple. This way your phone will not be looking for any WiFi connections or anything. It will completely focus on just charging.

Food Spit Scanner Device: Because Someone Might’ve Spit In Your Food

Food Spit Scanner Device

 

So your temper got the best of you and you exchanged a few choice words with your waiter for spilling that soda all over you and your date. Now your burger tastes kind of funky and it looks strangely slimy..

If you have reason to suspect that someone spit in your food, then you might want to check out the Saliva Scanner. It’s a handy device that scans your grub for traces of saliva. The device is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, although the creators have left out most details on the tech and science behind the scanner. That might explain why it only has $200 in pledges with only seven days to go in the campaign.

Nonetheless, the concept is interesting and it definitely settles one first-world problem once and for all– that is, if it ever gets made.

Truth or Dare: Home Lie Detector Test

Home Lie Detector Test

Who left the door open? Who broke your limited-edition action figure? Who ate the last cookie in the cookie jar? Sure, these are trivial matters, but rules are rules, and honesty is still always the best policy. But if no one’s owning up to the crime, then it’s time to break out the Home Lie Detector test.

Just hook the nifty little gadget to your laptop and snap the sensor onto your subject’s finger. It keeps track of the person’s pulse, which will most likely speed up when they’re about to tell or are telling a tall tale.

It’s available online for $300.

2015 Is Upon Us, Might As Well Get A Flux Capacitor Wristwatch

flux-capacitor-watch

Who wears wristwatches anymore? No one, but don’t tell Apple that. Still, if you fancy yourself old school and don’t plan on getting a smartwatch, you might want to take a look at this cool Flux Capacitor watch instead. With 2015 (the year that Back to the Future II mostly takes place in) right around the corner, it seems fitting to consider its purchase. It has an LED flux capacitor in the middle, looks ok, and tells the time in an obtuse manner that may add to its charm in the eyes of some.

Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats). At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date.

We actually have a soft spot for these types of watches, having been big fans of Tokyoflash for a while. And at $50, this Flux Capacitor timepiece is about half the price of pretty much any Japanese equivalent.
