Moggles Or How To Transform Your Smartphone Into A Virtual Reality Headset
There was a time, not too long ago, when playing with Virtual Reality gadgets such as the Oculus Rift was not a cheap hobby!
But things change, and, as technology advances with big leaps, such cool devices become more and more accessible for reasonable prices!

ALSO CHECK the X4 First Person View Quadcopter By Hubsan Hobby and the Parrot Bebop Drone With Skycontroller Range Extender.

The Moggles is another example of cool gadget that just a few short years back was reserved to fat wallets! The Moggles is a Virtual Reality Console that relies entirely on your smartphone’s processing power and gives you a 200” 3D screen with 360 degrees head tracking, anywhere you want! So how does it work? First grab your iPhone or Android devices and install any of the 120+ apps and games available for Google Cardboard; insert your phone into the Moggles VR Console, mount the headset and you’re ready to roll! The content plays on your phone, the headset ads a bit of visual and audio magic and you find yourself immersed in the beautiful work or virtual reality!

The Moggles work with all iPhone models and Android devices between 4-in and 5.7-in, sport custom made adjustable aspherical lenses for +- two dioptres and IPD, allow Augmented Reality apps usage via the phone camera, feature side openings for earphones and, when not in use, fold into a small sized portable package for easy transportation.
The Moggles are in project mode at Indiegogo and you can secure a pair for an early bird price of $79 US.

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.

So, what can you do about it and how can you make sure you stay in contact with friends while avoiding huge internet roaming fees?

As of this moment, you can chat with your trip colleagues as much as you want without worrying about internet roaming fees.

While the WhatSim service if free for text chat, you can also use the app’s rich media features (pics, video, voice messages) for extra fees. WhatSim comes in an All-in-One SIM format (Regular, Micro and Nano SIM sizes) and works on all iPhone models and most Android devices.
