Budsnaps Clip Loose-Fitting Earbuds To Your Ears [Kickstarter]

Did you ever try on a pair of your mother’s clip-on earrings? Or maybe you own a pair yourself. If so, you’ll be familair with the way they use a small and cleverly designed clamp to clip the gaudy bauble to your ear.

Now, the Budsnaps are just like this, only instead of a dangling decoration, they secure your iPhone earbuds.

SIMPLcase Carries SIM Toolkit For iPhone Travelers [Kickstarter]

In my wallet, I have a little “secret” compartment which contains a few international micro SIMs, an Apple-made SIM ejection tool (aka a fancy paperclip), and a guitar pick.

Or at least I usually do. The other day, when I actually needed it, the ejector tool had somehow found its way out of the wallet and into my bag. The problem was that it was not the bag I had with me.

Now, where is that 100-pound bag of dog food?

Have you ever tried to do any serious videography with an iPad? I don’t recommend it casually, but the iPad can be a great HD video tool, combining high resolution video capture abilities with a large screen for monitoring. Connecting it to a tripod, however, can be a trial.

SerialKickers aim to solve this  [Read More…]

That’s what CamFind‘s developers are claiming — that the app is at least four times more accurate than Google Goggles at recognizing and then searching for the subject of a photo you’ve taken with your iPhone.

If you’re unfamiliar with the two-year-old Google Goggles function (integrated within the Google Search app) the idea is pretty simple. Just snap a photo with your iPhone, and the app tries to recognize what you’ve taken a photo of. Once identified, you  [Read More…]

Smarter Stand For iPhone Combines Kickstand With Cord-Wrangler [Kickstarter]

The Smarter Stand for iPhone really is smart. It was designed to solve two problems: tangled earbud cords and a slab-like iPhone which insists on slipping off anything you try to prop it against. And it does all this whilst remaining a flat, pocketable piece of plastic.

The $ 12 widget looks – at first glance – like any other plastic stick for wrangling stray cables, with a notch at  [Read More…]

Distil Union’s Newest iPhone Enhancement Turns Your Wallet Into an iPhone [Kickstarter]

That’s right — instead of a case that turns your iPhone into a wallet, Wally, the latest Kickstarter project from Distil Union, sort of does the opposite. It’s a slip of leather that attaches to the back of an iPhone 4 or 5 via something called “micro-suction,” and creates a cavity with just about enough space for three of your most-used cards.

Savvy readers will recognize the name Distil  [Read More…]
