The Roost Portable Laptop Stand For 15-in MacBook Pro Retina and 17-in MacBook Pro
Working on a laptop all day long it’s not an easy job. If you’re one of those professionals always on the go and the coffee shop around the corner is your preferred office, you must know how tiring and difficult for your body is to work countless hours in an uncomfortable position. While in a regular office you can use a laptop stand and external keyboards and mice to improve your working position, things are not that easy while on the road.

A while back we featured the Flio laptop stand which allows road warriors to improve their posture when working on the go. While the Flio is still our preferred portable laptop stand when not in the office, there are people out-there who need an en even more raised laptop position to ergonomically work in improvised offices. For those people, and not only, we present you the Roost Portable Laptop Stand.

ALSO CHECK the AViiQ Portable Ergonomic Laptop Stand and the Ridge Portable Laptop Stand.

The Roost was initially designed for 13″, 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro laptops, but it’s also compatible with 13″-17″ non-Apple notebooks. A full list of compatible models is available here. The minimalist laptop stand is handmade in Detroit, US, it’s made of super-light Carbon Fiber and Delrin (the same material used in guitar picks), weights only 6.5oz (183g) and has a load capacity of 132+ lbs (that’s about 60kg).
The Roost raises your laptop screen about 10″ from the desk (that’s about 25 cm) and requires an external keyboard and mouse for usage.

Bygen Hank - The Collapsible Direct Drive Bike
The Bygen Hank Direct Bike proposes an innovative approach to classic space-saver folding bikes – a collapsible frame that slides back and forth based on the usage instance hooked-up to a direct drive system with pedals attached to the back wheel. The Bygen Hank bicycle is produced in Korea, weights less than 22 lbs (that’s less than 10KG), features a sliding carbon fiber frame which helps reducing its size when not in use, a foldable handle to make it even more compact and 20-in wheels. According to Bygen, the elimination of the bike chain results in 7-8% power increase at the same pedaling frequency.

ALSO CHECK the Transporter Commuter Bike With Trunk Wheel,the HMK 561Corbon Fiber Electric Bike and the Bicymple No-Chain Bike.

The Bygen bike will go on sale on the Korean market in October, with overseas release scheduled sometime after and will set you back a whopping $5,000 US (the price will probably lower as distribution widens).

Billetus Maximus Minimalist Wallet Made Of Carbon Fiber, Titanium, Aircraft Grade Aluminum
There are many minimalist wallets that hit the market lately (check the Flip n’Grip, the Essentials Wallet and the Stitch-less Leather Rivet … to name just a few) so it’s hard to believe that another new model can bring much novelty to the subject!

Well, based on the guys behind Billetus, most minimalist wallets out there seem to have a common problem: “The problem I was finding was that most have hard edges, sharp corners and are uncomfortable when I sit down in my car or at my desk” and they promise to resolve with their new wallet model: The Billetus.

The Billetus comes in two designs – Billetus Minimus (for up to 5 cards and 5 bills) and Billetus Maximus (for up to 8 cards and 5 bills), it has a slim, lightweight built made of carbon fiber, titanium or aircraft grade aluminum, comes in five colors, is RFID blocking and sports the same comfortable design with tampered edges as your ol’ worn leather wallet.

The Billetus wallets are in project mode at Kickstarter and can be secured for an early bird price of $45 US with delivery scheduled for November 2014.

Update 07/26/2015 – Please check the comments below. Many Billetus crowdfunding customers are complaining about the products not being shipped. Also, in order to have a clear idea about the situation, please check the Comments section on their crowdfunding campaign before buying or pre-ordering.

Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite With Perpetual Power Reserve
THAT time finally came! You know, the time when your smartphone runs by itself without needing an external charging power source.
Developed by the Swiss watch manufacturer TAG Heuer, the Meridiist Infinite is the first phone around with perpetual power reserve – it charges its own battery while in standby mode! And no, it doesn’t have a little running hamster inside!

TAG Heuer partnered with Sunpartner Technologies and, by introducing an invisible photovoltaic component in the phone’s sapphire crystal screen, developed the Wysips Crystal technology which charges the phone under specific natural or artificial light. There’s no mention about the price (but hey, it’s a TAG Heuer phone, don’t expect Samsung And Apple pricing!!!) but we know that the device will be manufactured as a limited edition with only 1911 pieces and will be made using high quality materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, and fancy rubber.

While the Vertu-look-alike phone itself does not present much interest for the regular consumer due to it’s high price point, it’s interesting to see how the perpetual power reserve technology included in it will affect smartphone development in the future.
