Our smartphones are really starting to blur the lines, as we as humans are closlier integrating with our devices. The Holoband doesn't break skin, but it does give you "steering wheel" capabilities on your wrist. Coupled with an app, this wristband was particularly made for the lazy at heart.
2. SteelSeries Siberia Gaming Headphones
SteelSeries is known for making top of the line gaming gear. With their new line of gaming headphones, they look to dip into the music headphones pot, though. The Siberia Elites are made for long gaming sessions with their comfort and durability. But they've also got style to compete with your Bose and Beats counterparts, with the addition of the retractable, virtually hidden mic, sexy style, prime drivers, sound-canceling, and customized LED illumination.
3. Slate Mobile AirDesk
Laptops get hot as hell on your lap. This elegant lap-desk can help you out, since it absorbs some of the heat and WiFi rays in its bamboo, allowing for better cooling for your lappy. After a quick, successful Kickstarter run, the desk can now be purchased straight up. Now you don't have to worry about shooting blanks.
4. Fitbug Orb
One of the more frightening features in today's tech is the amount of privacy that can be invaded. The Fitbug shoots to give you tracking for your fitness activities. However, the small, elusive size says otherwise. Packed with a long battery life and GPS, this baby pinpoints its carrier's exact location, speed, distance traveled, etc. All the data can be shot to your Fitbug account or simply to your iOS device. But yeah, it's for fitness tracking.
5. Palette, Customizable tool
Right away the Palette caught my eye as a tool that allows for working your MIDI controller or more buttons for gaming. But it's more than that. It's literally what ever you want it to be. It can be used with photography, graphic design, the elderly and more.
