BioLite Wood Burning Campstove With USB Charger
The BioLite Campstove is a cool multifunctional device designed to help campers cook a quick meal and … charge their iPhone or Android smartphones!
The devices works on renewable biomass (twigs, pinecones, wood pellets, you know, the regular stuff you find on the ground in the woods!!!) and has an output of 2W @5V (max continuous), up to 4W @5V on it’s peak. In plain English an output power of 2W @ 5V means close to the same power as a PC USB plug (a 20 minutes charge will allow an iPhone up to 45-60 minutes of talk time). It’s not the fastest charge in the world, but still, I’d be glad to have it with me when outdooring for a couple of days, away of regular electric power sources.

AirType The Keyboardless Keyboard From The Future
If you think about it, typing did not improve much in the past 150 years. Yes, we passed from typewriters to wired PC keyboards and from wireless keyboards to virtual keypads as those in smartphone and tablets, but still, that’s not much of an advancement. The shape changed but not he content!

There’s also the CTX laser keyboard we told you about a while ago which clearly is a huge improvement over traditional keyboards, but pretty much follows the same, classic direction!

AirType is an Austin, Texas start-up which has as main objective bringing the classic keyboard into the 21 century!
AirType is an innovative device which is worn over your hands, it learns your finger movements, adapts to your typing style, comes with dynamic text prediction and correction and allows you to type anywhere and everywhere. Literally – imagine you’re typing an email, someone takes away the keyboard, but you keep on typing and the text builds up on the screen by some kind of magic! The device connects to smartphones, tablets and laptops via low energy Bluetooth, is easy to wear and remove and, when not in use, can be easily stored by clipping it on the tablet or laptop.

AirType is in prototype stage at this moment. We do not have any news about the release date or the pricing grid, but there are strong chances you’ll see it on Kickstarter or Indiegogo once it’s ready to hit production.
