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.

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.

Aurisonics Rockets IEM - The Headphones Generation 2.0
Should you have the habit to wear headphones while you work, travel or workout you must have already encountered numerous of their annoyances. First, it’s a real hassle to find the right buds to fit your particular ear form and that’s not because the headphones are “not good” but because the human ear size and shape differs from one person to another and it’s almost impossible to nail a model to perfectly fir everyone! Second, just when you found the right model, they break! Just kidding … but, being always in your pocket, backpack or in use, headphones tend to deteriorate at speedy pace!
