So you’re extremely happy with your new iPhone 3GS, and are actively searching for means and ways to enhance your iPhone experience regardless of where you are. Newton Peripherals could have the answer, where they will lend their expertise in integrated mobile peripherals to come up with the new MoGo Talk for the iPhone. Just in case you were wondering what a contraption known as MoGo Talk for iPhone is, this is touted to be the first ultra-thin integrated Bluetooth headset in the world, measuring no thicker than 5mm while being stored on the back of your iPhone. In addition, it will also have its batteries charged up in the process, giving users the convenience of a charged headset at all times. This has led me to think though, won’t charging the MoGo Talk sip even more juice from your iPhone’s battery, which leaves you with less battery than before to carry out conversations? Well, at least we do know the MoGo Talk’s minimalist design will allow one to fold the headset flat easily, snapping it in and out of its protective case in a jiffy.

So the yearly cycle continues, with yet another iPod being updated this time round. Apple’s event at San Francisco saw the appearance of Steve Jobs to the masses, and it goes without saying the man had a hand in unveiling the latest iPod nano to the crowds, now in its fifth iteration. What makes the iPod nano so special this time round? Well, Apple has decided to throw in a video camera, a microphone and a speaker to what is already deemed as the most popular portable media player in the world, allowing music aficionados to shoot short video clips (limited by its memory, of course) regardless of where they are. These video clips can then be viewed over the computer after performing a quick and painless transfer, and further uploaded onto YouTube if you’re so inclined.

iPhone Steering Wheel: MarioKart Never Had it so Good

ip-sws_270x269Even though the included steering wheel for MarioKart was just a cheap piece of plastic, it pales in comparison to this racing wheel for the iPhone/iPod touch.

Digital Steering Wheel from CTA comes comes with grip with a bigger radius, not to mention a suction cup mount that adheres to any flat surface. The angle which the user wants to play is also adjustable.

It works for the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch. It comes with about 4 “mounts” that the user has to insert their particular Apple device in, and then snap it in to the center of the wheel. I have included a video that you can see after the jump if you want more info.

ProClip USA offers bunch of device holders


ProClip USA has recently announced a bunch of device holders which were specially designed to securely mount the recently released iPhone 3G S to car, truck and SUV dashboards alongside consoles. These were specially custom made to connect to vehicle-specific ProClip dashboard mounts, giving superior viewing and easier access.

The iPhone 3GS was just unveiled by Apple last week at WWDC in San Francisco, and while it did not set the world alight like the original iPhone did a couple of years ago, we’re pretty sure that it is going to do pretty well on the sales front simply because it is an iPhone and bears the famous Apple trademark, being simple and intuitive to use in addition to its versatility compared to other more business-oriented smartphones. Well, one of the major drawbacks would be having to consign oneself to a 2-year contract if you want to get the iPhone 3GS for a cheap price, otherwise an unlocked unit will burn quite a big hole in your pocket. There is a method to circumvent this, however, with a new SIM card that will make unlocking the latest iPhone 3GS handsets a snap in a much simpler process than ever before.

Automotive Gadgets


If you have a gadget you rely heavily on that requires AA batteries, you might invest in this battery charger. It’s always nice to have a battery charger at home, but if you’re outside of the house when your gadget dies, that won’t help you. Usually that leaves you stuck buying new batteries, well instead of doing that you can charge up your batteries within your car.


Most of us have had the joy of dealing with a dead battery in our car and somehow it always seems to happen under the worst of conditions. You know the ones, dark and either snowing or raining. It being dark is definitely a requirement though. Well with these jumper cables you won’t have quite so much difficulty managing to charge your battery in the dark. These cables might look a touch alien, but they’ll still do the trick.

halycon-concept_pezqg_5965Picture the first cars that were ever assembled, such as the Model T and what not. They look very different than the cars than the cars of today, right? I suppose that automobile design has a certain (for lack of a better word) evolution to it.

So let’s hit the fast forward button to see what the shape of cars will be in the future. I’m not certain what you were thinking, but I never would have come up with this. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that designer Ralph Tayler-Webb’s Halcyon car is ugly, I’m just saying that I wouldn’t have gone with such an indescribable, almost amorphous, shape.

Coolest Gadgets

“You hear that, Mr. Anderson, that is the sound of inevitability. That is the sound of a

stolen gadget.”

“My name is Nio.”

Not the first time that I have used dialogue from The Matrix to introduce a new prod

uct. This seems to happen every time I report on a product with a name that

sounds like “NEO“. Today it is the Nio security system.

The Nio is a very simple concept.

It uses “tags” that are synced via Bluetooth to a mobile device. These tags can be placed on briefcases, expensive gadgets, or anything else that you don’t want to let out of your sight. There’s a video of it after the jump.


Growing up a fan of Dick Tracy, I longed to have Dick’s cool watch radio phone which enabled him to communicate with headquarters. But in reality, the deployment of such a device has been left “wanting,” mostly do to reception problems due to analog cell systems. But with the advent of digital carriers and broadband highspeed wireless internet, the promise is now hopeful for not only improved cellular audio capability, but video capability as well. And that means, a video watchphone is now a reality. Well, I’m excited.

A video watch phone is definitely cool. But will it work?

A video watch phone is definitely cool. But will it work?

In addition to being able to make standard and video calls, the GD910 can also make text messages and goes completely wireless with a bluetooth headset so the user doesn’t have to scream to talk. The GD910 also sends email and has voice commands to access it’s features. And there’s even a cool, stereo mp3 player. Oh, and it’s a watch, too. Fancy that.

The LG GD910 Watchphone, will be available August 27th in limited quantities from Orange in the UK, but it won’t be cheap. It’ll cost about $1,000 US, and that doesn’t include a monthly contract fee, details of which have yet to be announced. But you can bet that with bandwidth for video and punitive fees for going past arbitrarily small data caps, that this technology may be priced right out of existence to anyone but business and government personnel.
