The $50 iBlazr is a “fully synchronized flash” for use with the camera on your iOS device. Says the company, “The flash is constructed to include four hi-end LEDs that provide an uncompromising amount of light for such a small size.” Basically, it’s a better flash than the the light in your iPhone; it plugs into your device’s headphone jack.

The $80 Hub It  is “capable of syncing and charging up to seven different iOS devices simultaneously with a 2.5A powerful output per port and at a speed of up to 5 GBps,” says Eggtronic. It should be perfect for the large family or small office.

The $100 DJ Controller “allows you to pre-cue your music and beat-mix with the added benefits of volume control and separate dual stereo outputs,” says Griffin. You’ll need the Djay 2 iOS app to make it work; after that, you’ll sound like a professional DJ.

Misfit

The $150 Misfit is a sleep-tracking device that rests on your mattress, under the sheets, and transmits data on your sleep cycles and quality — including heart rate, respiration, movement, snoring, and sound — to your iPhone. There, the Misfit app can tell you how much and how well you’re sleeping, and help you set goals to do better.
