Neptune Duo Smartwatch With External Screen - The Hub And The Pocket Screen
While most smartwatch manufacturers, including the big names like Motorola, Samsung, LG and even Apple, focus on using the smartphone’s processing power to do all the job and only allow basing interaction and info display on the wrist satellite, Montreal based start-up Neptune (the guys before the Neptune Pine we featured earlier) proposes a totally different approach – the smartwatch is the main gadget and the screen is secondary!

The Neptune Duo comes with two parts: The Hub wrist bracelet running on Android Lollipop and featuring a 2.4-in curved touchscreen, a quad-code processor, 64GB of storage, 1,000mAh rechargeable battery, a speaker and a microphone as well as 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity. Basically, the HUB is a fully functional Android device capable of placing and answering calls, writing emails, messages and SMS, surf the internet, GPS navigation and everything else a regular device can do!
The Neptune Duo‘s second part it’s a 5-in 720p Pocket Screen which features 2MP front and 8MP rear cameras, ads an extra 2,8000mAh internal battery which can also be used as an external power pack and serves as screen extension to the Hub. The Pocket Screen connects to the Hub automatically (check the video to see it in action) and can not be used on it’s own being a simple display accessory to the main smartwatch device.

The Neptune Duo smartwatch can be pre-ordered and will set you back between $498US and $798US (higher the cash-down, bigger the savings) with delivery by the end of 2015.

Portable Minimalist Ergonomic Laptop Stand ... In A Tube
More and more people change their desktop computers and go for portable notebooks everyday! Actually, with all the power available in modern laptops, I can barely imagine why would you go for a desktop … unless, of course, you work in those niches that require huge amounts of processing resources like video/audio editing, construction planning and architecture, 3D animation, gaming, etc …

Laptops are the perfect compromise – light enough to allow you to work from everywhere while packing just enough power to do your light office work, surf the net, check Facebook and Youtube or enjoy some light gaming. But there’s a hidden danger that comes packed in every laptop! And that danger is called “ergonomic working position” or better said “not ergonomic working position“!

And this is where gadgets like the 3-in-1 Laptop Stand Tube come into the game to help you enjoy the increased portability of a notebook while still keeping a healthy, ergonomic working posture. The Stand Up Stand is made of anodized aluminum and weights only 7.2oz (that’s 204.12gr) – just a tad heavier than the iPhone in your pocket, has an ingenious modular design which can raise your laptop to the perfect working height, transform it into a stand-up working desk as well as help you better interact and type on tablets and big smartphones. When not in use, the Stand Up Laptop Stand can be easily dismantled and stored inside it’s main component – the Tube – for easy transportation.

The 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand in a Tube is in project mode at Kickstarter and will set you back a reasonable $49 US. The project funding cap was already reached, which means the stand will safely be delivered in April 2015.
