The iCollection from Chivote is cool collection of premium leather cases designed to protect all your Apple gadgets!

Yes, I know, the market is already crowded by thousands and thousands of cool cases and sleeves for your bellowed iPhone, your iPad or your Mac! So what sets the Chivote iCollection apart from the crowd? Other than the smart functional design, the handmade build, the premium vegetable tanned leather used to manufacture the gear and the decent pricing – we like that we can “dress” all our gadgets in the same style! The iCollection is composed of three protective cases – an iPhone / iPod Touch model which also includes a rear pocket for storing a couple of credit cards and bills, an iPad protective case which doubles as a tablet stand and a MacBook leather case and stand designed to protect the 13″ and 15″ Apple laptop models!

ALSO CHECK the Hard Graft Draw iPhone Case and the Makr iPad Leather Attache we spoke about earlier.

Cool, isn’t it? The Chivote iCollection is in project mode at Kickstarter and you can secure the entire collection for iPhone, iPad and Mac for an early bird price of $156 US. The cases are also available individually.

Navdy  Or How To Safely Interact With Your Smartphone While Driving & Still Keeping Your Eyes On The Road
Smartphones and cars don’t really go hand in hand! There are too many temptations to take your eyes from the road and check your phone for incoming text massages, navigation directions, emails, social media notifications and messages, dial calls and so on … And taking your eyes from the road causes accidents!

Navdy is a nifty car gadget that promises to solve this issue and allow you to interact with your smartphone while keeping your eyes on the road. How do they do it? You simply put Navdy on your car’s dashboard, it connects via Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android smartphone and, via a HUD (heads-up display), it projects information from your phone and displays it … on the road in front of your vehicle! Well, it doesn’t really project the info on the road, but on the device’s 5.1in transparent screen, which makes it look like it’s projected on the road in front of you.

ALSO CHECK the Garmin Windshield HUD (Head-Up Display) and the Skully P1 HUD Motorcycle Helmet we wrote about earlier.

Other than displaying navigation directions, Navdy can be controlled via air-gestures and voice commands to allow you to send messages and emails, answer and dial calls, control music playback and, if connected to the car’s computer via the OBDII interface, can allow you to monitor car performance and diagnostics by displaying the info on its HUD.

Navdy is presently on a private crowdfunding campaign and you can pre-order one for $299. Delivery is scheduled for early 2015.

Looxcie LX2 Wearable Video Cam for iPhone and Android - In Action
Wearing an action camera is no longer a big deal … when doing sports? But did you try mounting your favorite GoPro while taking a walk in the park or going to work? Whatever your reasons might be to do so, it still looks weird! So, if you need to record footage of you’re doing and still have your hands free for other activities, the Looxcie LX2 wearable video camera has you covered! And all this without making you look weird or stupid!

The Looxcie LX2 is lightweight (less than 1oz – that’s less than 22 grams!) and can be worn just as a Bluetooth headphone piece, can be clipped to caps, bike helmets, mounted on car windshields or on a tripod. The camera allows up to 5 hours of video recording, allows instant clip creation and sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube or i-Cloud, is powered by rechargeable battery with a life time of up to 4 hours and is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.

Given the small format size of the Looxcie LX2 the only control available on the camera is the power button. All other operations like viewing, controlling the video capture, sharing videos and other setting can be done via the free iOs and Android apps that come with the camera.

Don’t expect miracles when it comes to footage quality. The Looxcie LX2 records in 480p (854×480 pixels) and allows live streaming in 320p (480×320 pixels) – which makes it OK for amateur video recordings.
