Mood lighting, jump-measuring, and more
This week's roundup of accessories includes a new way to make sure you have the best mood lighting available—control it from your iPhone! Plus, cables, stands, and more.
The $40 EverDockGO is a recharging dock that fits perfectly into your car’s cupholder. The makers say: “The EverDock GO keeps your device safely available and within view, without dangerously blocking your vision the way a dashboard or windshield mounted dock does.”
The $12 Neet Cable Keeper helps organize your cables using a fabric shell designed to keep the cables from fraying and ripping; a zipper pull allows you to open it up and add new wires and devices to the collection.
The $299 Fly-X3 is a phone stabilizer that will help you get smooth, pro-looking video shots with your iPhone. "Secure your phone in the Fly-X3 cradle and the stabilizing motor will automatically tilt the phone to find a level shot,” the makers say. A gyroscope keeps the phone level no matter how much you move around.
The $100 Prong PWR Case is a detachable battery case—the detachable part plugs directly into the electrical outlet using extendible electric charging prongs, natch. It’s compatible with the iPhone 5 and 5s, and comes in multiple colors.
The $35 Revogi is a Bluetooth-enabled lightbulb that can be controlled by a corresponding app from your iPhone. You can change the colors or the lighting level so that the room always matches the mood.
TwelveSouth has this to say about the $35 HiRise Deluxe: “HiRise Deluxe is a beautiful metal pedestal for charging and hands-free use of your iPhone or iPad. Set HiRise on your desk for hands-free calls and eye-level FaceTime sessions, or use this small stand at home to keep iPhone fully charged while streaming music to your favorite speaker. Adjustable support posts makes HiRise compatible with most iPhone and iPad cases and shells.”
The $125 Vert Jump Rate Monitor is kind of like a Fitbit, only for jumping. The wearable monitor pairs with an app on your iPhone and measures how many times you jumped as well as how high. It’s a great training device for athletes in track and field, volleyball, basketball, and more.
