Eton Mobius for the iPhone 4

Eton has a lot of solar-powered products such as emergency gadgets like the Raptor and the Scorpion. Their most recent product, the Mobius, takes a page from the Mophie Juice Pack playbook as it is a portable charger specifically designed for the iPhone 4.
The Juice Pack is a battery that doubles as an iPhone case, and the Mobius is essentially the same thing, but solar-powered. According to the official Press Release, one hour of sun on the solar cells is sufficient enough for 25 minutes of talk time, 20 minutes of internet use, 35 minutes of video playback, and two hours of audio playback.

G-Form Extreme Sleeve for the iPad

We have reported on G-Form’s products before with the Extreme Portfolio and Extreme Edge. I recently got a chance to try out the Extreme Sleeve.
The first thing I have to tell you about the Extreme Sleeve is that it is soft. I know that it looks like hard plastic in the image to the left, but it actually is G-Form’s Reactive Protection Technology (RPT) which is a composite blend of PORON XRD material and other trade secrets. The end result is a substance that feels like a sponge without holes, and it “changes its molecular structure on impact”.
If you watch the video after the jump, you can see a twelve-pound bowling ball get dropped on an Extreme Sleeved iPad. You can also see how a hard-shell case stands with the same impact. You can probably guess how it ends.

Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On brings racing action closer to home than ever before

The world’s fastest sport is also one of the most expensive – it basically isn’t cost effective to drive a Formula 1 car, but then again, it is through Formula 1 that we get many technologies that you see in passenger cars these days such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as well as paddle shifts. Sure, fans of the motorsport will probably have their idols whom they want to emulate, and one of the ways to sit in your very own Formula 1 car would be through a computer or console game.
What used to rely on console controllers or a keyboard to navigate your vehicle has evolved greatly, where a steering wheel add-on is definitely favored over the traditional gaming setup for that added dose of realism. After all, you don’t drive an actual car with the keyboard, right? Not only that, a steering wheel peripheral also makes the game far more immersive. Having said that, Thrustmaster has come up with the Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On that is a removable racing wheel and a life-size replica of the Ferrari 150° Italia racing wheel.

Zipbuds enter into second generation goodness

Many of us enjoy our music on the go thanks to the sheer number of devices these days that offer MP3 playback (in addition to other audio file formats, of course), and this has directly caused the peripherals market to grow by leaps and bounds – especially when you take the number of headphones or earbuds that are in the market at the moment. Unless you do not want to take the wireless route, chances are pretty good that the pair of headphones or earbuds you use will end up in a tangled mess if not properly taken care of.
Somehow, cables tend to mysteriously get all tangled when you leave them alone – making me wonder whether secretly, they’re alive and plotting to take over the world when we are caught unawares. Well, Zipbuds certainly knows how irritating that can be, which is why the second generation of Zipbuds will come with premium 11mm drivers, a lighter zipper pull as well as redesigned aluminum ear buds, giving you an enhanced overall listening experience without looking like a dork.

PURE Contour is one fine iPod/iPhone dock

After years of seeing PURE products at CES and electronics shows, I finally got one to try out with the Contour. The PURE Contour is an iPod/iPhone dock, but it is quite extraordinary.
I’m not certain if its rounded shape has anything to do with its high quality sound, but it has full range 3.5 inch speakers and dual bass ports for 36W RMS of sound that really shook the floor. It has an iPod dock that is retractable, as well as an FM radio.
The Contour can also connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection so you can hook up to Internet radio stations and podcasts. It also allows for streaming music directly from a PC or Mac. Also included are composite, component and S-Video out for connection to the television.

Wahoo Fitness Bike Pack is ANT+ compatible

If you thought that the All-Weather Soft Case Bike Mount from Bracketron was something to sing about, you will be crazy about the Wahoo Fitness Bike Pack.

It also has a built-in ANT + radio transceiver which can support ANT + heart rate, speed, cadence, and power sensor.

The Powerbag Messenger charges your devices as you carry them

Once again, a device has shown up on the market that allows users to forget that they have charged their mobile devices instead of forgetting to charge them. This type of charger does sit on your desk, but it is a bag that you take with you. This is the Powerbag Messenger by Ful, and it allows you to charge your tablet, smartphone, iPod, or other mobile devices.
The secret is the removable battery inside, that can be charged with the included AC cord. When the battery is docked with the cradle inside the bag, the user can check its battery level by hitting the power button. LED light indicators (four in all) reveal how much power is in the battery. The user can then hook up to the Apple connector, micro-USB, or mini-USB, which are conveniently located in the Messenger bag’s pockets. The battery even has a USB port for anything that is USB chargeable!
