    Olloclip introduces Studio camera case & accessories for iPhone 6 & 6 Plus



    Olloclip on Wednesday announced its new Studio accessory system, meant to enhance the use of its add-on lenses for iPhones, including a ruggedized case with kickstand and new mounts.

    The core of the Studio system is the Studio Case, available in versions for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The case is needed to mount the other accessories, such as the finger grip, which is intended to provide more stable handheld shots but can double as an impromptu stand.

    There is also a dedicated kickstand, and two 1/4-20 clips that can be used to attach third-party tripods and grips in portrait or landscape mode. "Cold-shoe" adapters can be used to equip flashes or microphones.

    For the Studio line Olloclip is going back to Kickstarter to seek funding. Different contribution levels include different accessory bundles – $35 (plus shipping), for instance, includes only the Studio Case and the kickstand. $60 adds the 1/4-20 mounts, two cold shoes, and the finger grip.

    A $110 package tosses in Olloclip's 4-in-1 lens, and still higher pledge tiers add more lenses.

    Kickstarter prices are discounted from retail, and backers will be able to pick one of three color options selected earlier by survey. The Studio should ship by the end of September.

    This toaster is actually an iPhone charging station in disguise




    Keeping enough iPhone cables around the house to your entire family’s devices charged can result in some unsightly blogs of tangled cables. Most charging stations look horrible, or too nerdy to keep in open sight, but the Foaster is hoping the solve that problem by disguising an iPhone charging station in the shape of one of the most ubiquitous kitchen appliances.

    Foaster comes with two slots to charge two iPhones at the same time, but it also can be expanded to accommodate two extra iPads. With its built-in power supply, Foaster only uses one electric outlet on your wall, keeping a fresh minimal look.

    No word on pricing or when the Foaster will actually be available (or hit Kickstarter), but you can sign up for an alert over at the company’s website.

    LG launched an awesome iPhone keyboard




    LG’s newly unveiled Rolly Keyboard is one of the most impressive new smartphone accessories I’ve seen all year. Although it has the look of a Kickstarter project, the Rolly is a foldable, or rollable, full laptop keyboard that can connect to up to two devices at the same time via Bluetooth to increase your productivity while on the go.

    Rolly seems to be right up the alley of Microsoft’s Universal Foldable Keyboard that’s also supposed to be highly portable. Microsoft’s solution is to fold the keyboard in two, whereas LG transforms its accessory into a stick that can be easily hidden away in your already-tech-filled backpack or purse.

    According to LG’s press release, the Rolly is made of “high-contrast keys” and features a fold-out mobile device stand.” The device has a 17m key pitch that’s “nearly” as generous as 18mm key pitch found on a desktop keyboard.

    The Rolly Keyboard can connect to devices featuring Bluetooth 3.0 support or higher, and it features auto-pairing and the ability to toggle between two gadgets with a key press. LG would probably like you to buy the device to pair it with its smartphones and tablets, but it’ll also work with iPhone, other Android phones and other gadgets that might need a keyboard.

    A single AAA battery powers the keyboard for up to three months of average use, LG says. But the company did not share any pricing details for the accessory, saying only that it’ll start shipping at some point in September. Comparatively, the Microsoft keyboard costs $99.95 and it’s already available for purchase.

    LG Looks to Increase Share of Growing Mobile Device Accessories Market


    SEOUL, Aug. 27, 2015 – In an effort to capture a larger share of the fast-growing mobile accessories market, LG Electronics (LG) will unveil the industry’s first solid rollable wireless portable keyboard at IFA 2015 in Berlin, Germany. Unlike other portable keyboards on the market, LG’s Rolly Keyboard (model KBB-700) folds up along the four rows to create an easy-to-carry “stick” that fits into one’s pocket as easily as any purse or briefcase.

    Featuring high-contrast keys and a fold-out mobile device stand, typing on Rolly Keyboard is extremely comfortable because its 17mm key pitch is nearly as generous as the 18mm key pitch found on most desktop keyboards. Made of impact-resistant and durable polycarbonate and ABS plastic, typing on the keyboard offers satisfying tactile feedback not found on flexible silicone keyboards. Two sturdy arms fold out to support smartphones as well as tablets 1 in an upright position. Simply unfolding the Rolly Keyboard enables the auto pairing function to connect easily to two different devices at the same time via Bluetooth 3.0 with the ability to toggle between the two with a simple key press. A single AAA battery powers the keyboard for up to three months of average use.

    “LG Rolly Keyboard is just one of the many premium input devices we’ll be unveiling in the coming months as we expand our accessories offerings,” said Seo Young-jae, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The goal was to create a product that could add more value to LG smartphones and tablets at the same time offering a unique design proposition that hadn’t been explored before.”

    The Rolly Keyboard will make its debut in September in the United States, followed by key markets in Europe, Latin America and Asia in the fourth quarter. Prices and details of availability will be announced locally at the time of launch. Visitors to IFA 2015 can see LG Rolly Keyboard up close in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from September 4-9.

    Your iPhone is the key to this smart padlock


    The LockSmart has no key or combo. Just be sure to have the proper app on your smartphone before you lock up your things.



    Buy a shiny new padlock and hold in your hand something that hasn’t changed much since the Romans used them 500 years before Christ. The ubiquitous lock has a u-shaped shackle that connects to a body containing a mechanism that locks and unlocks with a key or combination wheel.

    Keys get lost and combination codes forgotten so the company Dog & Bone put its own stamp on the padlock, or actually, your stamp, by creating a smart lock that is controlled by an app on your smartphone.

    The LockSmart lock looks like any trusted padlock you loop through a link chain or hasp and staple, but high-security Bluetooth, with 128-bit advanced encryption, is the key to security. The lock owner would access their valuables with the SmartLock app (available in iOS and Android) that allows users to unlock using Touch ID, tapping an icon or entering a password.

    The user can manage several LockSmart locks from the app or unlock one from a far should a trusted friend or family member need to gain entry.





    The LockSmart is secured thanks to Bluetooth with 128-bit encryption.



    Just make sure you have enough juice on your phone at the end of the day when you get to your bike or gym locker. The LockSmart lock is made from hardened steel and a die-cast zinc alloy. It is powered by a cell lithium-ion battery, which Dog & Bone says is good for two years or 3,000 unlocks before it would need a recharge. The app, however, will notify when the battery is low.

    The lock can be charged via micro USB which is protected from the elements with a waterproof seal. It will retail for $89.95 at RadioShack stores starting next month or at the Dog & Bone website. There is also a LockSmart Mini for $69.95.
