Dorky Ruck Pack Is Like A Giant Kids Back Pack For Astronauts

Dorky Ruck Pack Is Like A Giant Kids Back Pack For Astronauts

The Ruck Pack is a big box for your back, with zip-up pockets no the back and a clip-closure flap on the top. I like that the square design lets you fill the main bag without stressing the iPad you can keep in the bigger rear pocket, and I also like that this iPad pocket is protected by both its own zipper and the main flap, making it a little harder for pickpockets to lift your iPad out on a crowded subway, say.

Buy it $70

iLoud byIK Multimedia
Category: Speakers
Works With: Anything
Price: $300

To save time, here’s my advice: If you have an iPad or iPhone, a guitar and $300 to spend, then spend it on the iLoud. It’s a small, portable Bluetooth speaker that is way louder than any other Bluetooth speaker, and it lets you plug in your guitar and use your iPhone – wirelessly – to add effects using an app like IK Multimedias’s AmpliTube.

More importantly, the iLoud rocks.

Martian Notifier Looks Like A Smartwatch We Might Actually Wear [CES 2014]


CES 2014 bug

Something that often gets missed about wearable technology is that — while the tech part is all well and good — in order for it to appeal to the average consumer it needs to look like something you’d actually be happy to be seen wearing.

Backcountry Tablet Is Like An Outdoor iPad For Adventurers

I’m posting about this Android-based tablet for a few reasons. One, I want it, and as it’s crowd-funded, my chances of getting one are helped if you want it, too.

Second, I figure that if you love your iPad as much as I love mine, then you might miss it when you get all outdoorsy and go camping/hiking/biking.

And third? It’s just awesome: the Backcountry Tablet is an e-ink, solar-powered iPad. With GPS. What’s not to like? It’s even cheap, at $250.
