We wandered the corridors of Macworld this afternoon to find the most fun and freaky booths at Macworld. Here’s what we found.

image
Olloclip has a fun photo booth with props. There are several companies at Macworld doing the photo booth this year.

image
Daiya, a cheese company was passing out samples of their dairy free cheese. What this has to do with Macworld I have no idea, its strange and so was the cheese, but not in a bad way.

image
iPearl has a $20 inflatable shockproof pillow iPad case. Good for kids who are clumsy. Fill it up with a pump and it doubles as a pillow.

image
Strotter has a magnetic iPad bag for $169.00. Move it around outside or inside the bag and the magnets hold it in place.

image
iHangy has a lanyard that clips into an iPhone dock connecter for $25. This cardboard cut-out was the only booth babe I found on the floor.

image
The window wristlet by Lake 33 for $27.50 is a quilted case with a see-through plastic holder for an iPhone. Perfect for running errands and no more digging around for your phone.

image
JuceMobile has cups of delicious hard apple cider. Nothing like alcohol in the morning to help navigate the Macworld floor.

image
The New York Times has a pretty cool portrait printout using news words to form faces. There was a long wait for this one.

image
Grifiti makes the $25 Dootle case with a notebook for aspiring artists or students to take notes while using their iPad.

image
The Bowblade is the most outrageous case I have seen. The $185 case is compatable with 35 first shooter games. Get bigger biceps by extending the bow for straight shooting.

image
Tru Fit is a proud American green company. Their recycled plastic iPhone cases are made by artists in the USA for $39.95

image
Apotop makers of the bestselling Wi-Reader are giving away flashy purple bags. Everyone seemed to have one.

image
DriveSavers Data Recovery had some badly damaged Mac products on display. Fires and floods can do a lot of damage.

image
iLumina 3D has interchangeable art with cool 3D art that slides onto the back of an iPhone. for $39.99 you can select a new piece of 3D art every month for six months. Good idea for people who can’t make up their minds.

    I wasted a hour and a half of my time yesterday walking the floor of MacWorld/iWorld and asked myself WTF am I doing here? It is not even a shell of its former self and really had nothing interesting or new…it should be called iPhone/iPad CaseWorld…it should be put out of its misery…and anyone who paid to attend should be really pissed…

    I’m pretty sure you’ve got at least 3 pictures of “booth babes” besides the cardboard cutout one…

    Surprised us to see that attendance seemed to be skewed to an older crowd this year.
