All the marbles
This week’s roundup includes an iPhone stand hewn from the earth itself. Read on!
Well! Something new in iOS dock design! The Dock + Lightning Marble Edition ($130 MSRP, $140 on Amazon) is (natch) a marble dock for your Lightning-equipped iPhone. It comes in black or white, is cut from solid marble, and is polished by hand. One warning, though: Dock + Lightning is only compatible with the included color-matched MFi certified Lightning cable; your Apple Lightning cable will be useless with this device.
This company’s new iPhone Lens ($30 MSRP, $25 on Amazon) includes a 140-degree wide-angle lens and a 10x macro lens. The macro “gets you 10 times closer to your subject for extreme close-ups” while the wide angle lense opens up your field of view for breathtaking landscape photos or selfies.” It also has a detachable soft rubber clip that won’t leave any scratches or marks on your iPhone.
The Gadget Flow
Honestly, the only reason we have for featuring the Ninja Wooden iPhone Stand ($20.23 MSRP, on sale for $18.26) is that it’s a adorable! Your iPhone is displayed by a little wooden silhouette of a ninja doing a high kick. Get it? It’s a kickstand!
The Flip! Stylus ($35 pledge) bills itself as “the world’s most intuitive smart stylus.” It doesn’t use batteries or Bluetooth—it’s powered using magnets—yet somehow it knows that when you flip from one end to the other, it’s because you want to erase the note you’ve made or the line you’ve drawn. The makers say they plan for the stylus to be compatible with a wide array of note-taking apps.
