Cover Your Walls With Instagrams Using Fotobit Modular Frame

Cover Your Walls With Instagrams Using The Fotobit Modular Frame
Fotobit is a 4.25 x 4.25-inch frame designed for wall-mounting your Instagrams. It’s modular, so you can slot the frames together to cover the wall with an Insta-mural, and the frames themselves are a handsome matte black or white. But there’s more.

The frames come in several parts: the front, the back, a matt and a clear acrylic window. The kits also come with a level. All you have to do it nail/screw one rear section to the wall, then the others clip onto it. Them the photo and the front of the frame just press onto the main body.

Booqpad For iPad Air: Paper And Pixels Together At Last

Booqpad For iPad Air: Paper And Pixels Together At Last
Paper? In the age of the iPad? Unthinkable! Ink from a pen? Inconceivable! And yet that’s what the new Booqpad for iPad Air promises us, a case that both protects the iPad and gives you a pad and paper to write on. Not only that, but it does it all with magnets.

The Booqpad comes in two parts. A rear shell case attaches to your iPad Air, and this in turn attaches to the folio case using magnets.

Protective Jambox Is Like A Leather Jacket On A Rhinoceros

Protective Jambox Is Like A Leather Jacket On A Rhinoceros
Back when I wrote at Wired, I called Waterfield’s keyboard case a “signal of the end of civilization.” Who needs a coddling cover for a keyboard that is so tough it can keep working even after you have a tantrum and smash it on a marble topped table? Repeatedly? (Like a friend of mine did one time).

Now I actually use that same cover whenever I travel, so I’m a little more accepting of the new “CitySlicker for the Jawbone Mini Jambox,” a case for the toughest little speaker on the market.

Tiny BOLT Is A Charger And Backup Battery In One

Tiny BOLT Is A Charger And Backup Battery In One
The little BOLT Charger Battery is as clever as it is good looking. The USB wall-charger packs a backup battery into its tiny body, as body that leads its maker to call it the “The World’s Smallest Wall Charger + Battery Backup.”

I’m not sure how true that it, but who cares? It fits in your pocket and it’ll juice your iPhone twice, even without a wall to shove it into.

Highline, A Clever Leash For Your iPhone 5

Highline, A Clever Leash For Your iPhone 5
The Highline is a curly cable which attaches to your belt to a belt loop at one end, and to your iPhone 5/S at the other. The leash is combined with a clear polycarbonate case which does two things: it protects you device even if it manages to dangle violently into a brick wall or other malevolent, iPhone-hating surface, and it has a notch which locks onto the leash itself.

Photographer’s Pouch, Velcro-Backed Felt Pockets That Stick In Any Bag

Photographer’s Pouch, Velcro-Backed Felt Pockets That Stick In Any Bag
The Photographer’s pouch is a boiled-wool pocket that will stick inside any camera bag thanks to the velcro strip on its back. And of course you’re not limited to cameras, or even camera bags – anything that will fit fits, and any bag with velcro can be used.
