    Clip-On Lens, The Poor-Man’s Olloclip



    USB Fever’s SuperWide iPhone lens has one unique feature, and you can probably see exactly what it is kist by lookingL the huge sprung loop that holds it on the iPhone and over the lens and makes it easy to slip on and off.

    The king of iPhone lenses is the Olloclip, a four-in-one widget that slips over the corner of you iPhone and covers the lens with one of its various accessory lenses. The genius in the design is that its impossible to line it up wrong. Just push it home and you’re good to go.

    At the other end of this usability scale is the magnetic lens, which requires that you glue a metal ring around your iPhone’s lens, and then try to line up the magnetic lens, and then re-align it every time you tap it or bump it out of place. They’re a nightmare, and not recommended unless they come paired with a case that has a sunken section that’ll stop it sliding around.

    And in between these is this new Clip-On. It’ll probably get knocked out of alignment all the time, and it’s as big in your pocket as a whole Olloclip, but it’s also just $14, and works with your iPhone, your iPad, and any other device with a small camera and a thin-enough body.

    The Clip-On in available right now.

    Grip&Shoot, A One-Handed Camera Grip For The iPhone



    I find anything that promises one-handed operation of your iDevices suspicious, but then I have a dirty mind. The Grip&Shoot – seen by Buster last week and Macworld – is one such gadget, and it adds a trigger grip to the iPhone to make shooting videos and photos way easier.

    The Grip&Shoot connects via Bluetooth, so it can be used with the iPhone in its cradle or as a remote control. The grip has a a trigger button under your finger, and two thumb-controlled buttons on the top. With the Grip&Shoot app these work to zoom the camera, but an app could use them for anything.

    The Grip&Shoot’s handle can also be removed to leave just a slightly odd-shaped bumper case.

    Want one? It comes in black or white and costs $100. The package includes a case for both the iPhone 4/S and 5/S, plus a leather case and a wrist strap.

    Lensbaby For iPhone Hits The Sweet Spot



    Lensbaby’s new iPhone lens looks awesome. Or it would, if it didn’t attach with magnets. Yes, it’s a super-strong magnet and might therefore avoid the problem suffered by all other magnetically-attached iPhone lenses: they are hell to keep aligned.

    But you still have to glue a metal ring onto the back of your iPhone.





    The LM–10 is a miniature, iPhone-sized version of its “sweet-spot” optics for regular cameras. It has an adjustable front element which swivels in its turret and allows you to place the central “sweet spot,” the sharp part of the photo, anywhere in the frame. The rest of the image quickly falls off into blur.

    The lens will also invert the image, which could add to the fun or be plain annoying. A Lensbaby app will flip the upside-down image so you can view it right-side-up, but it matter anyway, as you can flip the result right there in your camera roll. The app also lets you tap the sweet-spot so that the camera knows where it should focus.

    One neat features is the inclusion of a magnet on both ends, which lets you use your existing magnetic lenses on top. This could give some amazing effects, especially used with things like macro and fisheye optics.

    I can’t wait to try it. I’m not so hot on sticking a steel ring to my iPhone though.

    The Lensbaby Sweet Spot Lens for iPhone is pitching on Kickstarter right now, but as this is Lensbaby we’re talking about, then the product is almost guaranteed to make it into stores. $50.

    Behringer is using the iNuke to promote its new Eurosound line of consumer products, which will be introduced at CES 2012.

    Luxi, The Little Light Meter For the iPhone



    The little Luxi turns your iPhone’s front camera into a light meter. A what? A light meter, a device that measures the amount of light falling on a subject so that you can set the exposure correctly on your camera.

    But wait, doesn’t you camera already set its own exposure? Doesn’t it have a light meter built in for when i want to kick it old school in manual mode? Yes and yes, but this $30 widget might still be handy.

    In combo with a companion app, the Luxi is little more than a white translucent dome that covers your iPhone’s front camera, and tells you how much light is falling on it. This is translated in the app to tell you the exact settings you need to dial in on your camera.





    The big difference is that the Luxi measures the light that’s falling on your subject, not the light that reflects from the entire scene in front of you. That’s becasue even the fanciest of cameras can be fooled.

    Imagine you are snapping a picture of somebody. Their face in in deep shadow, but the scene behind them is lit up by the midday sun. Even the best camera may get confused, thinking that you’re snapping a photo of the whole scene and that your subject is maybe just some dumb rock in the foreground. So your friend’s face is plunged into black while the junk-littered street behind them is perfectly exposed.

    Switch to the Luxi, or a $250 purpose-made incidence light meter and you put it in front of their face and point it back at the camera. This tells you how much light is falling on them. The background could be a black whole or a white dwarf and it wouldn’t make any difference (well, you might get sucked in or burned to smithereens I guess).

    Or, in the case of digital, you can just chimp your shots until the exposure’s correct and go from there.

    Whatever, this former Kickstarter is now available to buy from the Photojojo store.

    This amazing new iPhone case uses electromagnetic energy to show glowing notification



    Lunecase is a new iPhone case that’s a lot smarter than other cases, as it’s able to harness the electromagnetic energy of the iPhone to show notifications for calls and messages. The case does not have any battery of its own and does not connect to the iPhone via its Lightning port, but it will detect incoming calls and texts by recognizing their respective wavelengths. By wirelessly picking up the energy it needs, it is able to then convert it into the energy required to display visual notifications.

    “The Lunecase is the first intelligent iPhone cover,” the company wrote on Kickstarter. “The case knows and identifies when you receive a message or a phone call before it is even displayed on the iPhone’s screen. The Lunecase will identify the type of notification, whether it would be an incoming call, or a text message. The case displays these notifications on the back of your smartphone with the help of LEDs, using the free energy that is emitted by the device, converting it from the natural iPhone’s electromagnetic energy into a usable energy to power the notification system embedded in the Lunecase.”

    The Lunecase is currently raising money on Kickstarter, and requires $50,000 to enter production. Interested buyers can contribute anywhere from $5 to $3,000 to this project, although they’ll have to pay at least $29 to get the intelligent case – the case will ship in August, assuming the crowdfunding campaign is successful.

    The Lunecase will then retail for around $50 once it hits stores.

    The team behind Lunecase has already delivered another interesting accessory for mobile devices with the help of Kickstarter, the iblazr camera flash that shipped last September.

    The following videos show how the case works – including a hands-on video with a prototype device from CES 2014.

    Check out this insanely cool iPhone thermal camera add-on



    The Seek Thermal is a cool standalone smartphone camera add-on that lets users take pictures and record videos in a thermal imaging mode, though many iPhone and Android device owners may not have an actual need for that other than the “coolness” factor. The device attaches to a supported smartphone via a Lightning or microSD port, The Next Web reports, and costs $199.

    The Seek Thermal measures in at 2.75 x 84 x 0.84 inches, weighs less than half a pound and features a special True Thermal Sensor with 206 x 156 Array and 32,136 Thermal Pixels. While that might sound boring, the fact is the Seek Thermal camera might come in handy in a variety of situations where the user could learn more details about his or her surroundings by being able to check for heat dissipation.

    Like in some spy and action movies, the Seek Thermal camera sees the heat emitted by living things and objects and can be used for practical purposes – like seeing in the dark – or for more artsy endeavors.

    Since the thermal camera is a smartphone accessory, it won’t work by itself, and comes with a handy application that allows the user to further customize his or her experience. The device needs an iPhone 5 or later iOS device (as a Lightning port is required) or an Android handset with Android 4.4.2 KitKat (or later) on board to work.

    Clever cases will give you the waterproof iPhone 6 that Apple never delivered



    One feature that many iPhone fans wish they had with the iPhone 6 was the same waterproof casing we see on devices such as the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2. Thankfully, there’s a new Indiegogo campaign for two new premium iPhone 6 cases developed by accessories manufacturer Lunatik that will alternately either make your smartphone waterproof or waterproof and borderline indestructible.

    The waterproof-only case, which is called the Aquatik, is the thinner and more stylish of the pair and comes in five different colors: Black, white, orange and pink. The case is primarily used to keep your iPhone safe if you drop it into water and it doesn’t offer the same level of overall protection that the Taktik does.

    Speaking of the Taktik, it looks like the perfect case for people who are bringing their iPhones with them while they’re walking through minefields. In addition to delivering the same waterproof capabilities as the Aquatik, the case features a “patent pending compression closure system and single latch closure” along with an added Corning Gorilla Glass lens to provide added protection for your display. Lunatik says the case is primarily good for “people who serve in our military, police, firefighters, skydivers.”

    Lunatik is looking to raise $100,000 over the next 30 days to meet its funding goal and the project has already raised more than $72,000 in just one day. Lunatik estimates the Aquatik will be ready to ship this coming January while the Taktik will be ready to ship this coming March.

    Charge your iPhone 6 faster than ever with this special cable



    One of the battles smartphone users have to constantly fight is running out of battery life when they least expect it. There are many ways to deal with poor battery life when it comes to software settings and tricks, and plenty of highly portable external battery packs to choose from for extra battery charges. But one company has decided to take a different approach to fixing your battery problems on the iPhone 6, or any Android handset for that matter.

    Called SONICable, and already funded with 40 days left in the campaign, this new Indiegogo accessory is a charging cable that promises to charge your iPhone 6 or Android handset faster than before.

    According to the company, the cable is the “world’s most advanced charging cable,” and charges any device in just half the time of a regular USB cable.

    The accessory comes with either a Lightning or microUSB connector and features a special switch that, when pressed, ignores sync capabilities in favor of charging the device at maximum power.

    Other features include a dual-sided USB port, and more durable aluminum connectors and nylon protective material.

    The SONICable costs $27 on Indiegogo, and should ship at some point in March 2015. The campaign has already topped $36,000 in pledges, crushing its $10,000 target.



    A video explaining the accessory follows below.
