Prong PWR Case

Our iPhone batteries have degraded to the point of barely lasting a day with light use, forcing us to constantly lug around a Lightning cable plus powerpack or wall charger. Fortunately, Prong’s PWR Case looks like a far better compromise. For power users and owners of worn down devices alike, this iPhone 5/5S case packs integrated charging prongs that pop out at the push of a button, letting you plug it straight into the nearest wall socket for a quick top up. It’s even got a backup battery that brings along enough juice to fully charge your iPhone once over, meaning a lack of wall sockets to plug into won’t slow you down one bit.

Preorder at Prong – $65

Smash Cup

There’s no shortage of reusable coffee cups to choose from, but many are labeled portable when in fact they’re not really suited for much other than a big pack or a car’s cup holder. Smash Cup, on the other hand, collapses when not in use, saving space wherever you stash it, be it a backpack or jacket pocket. Smash Cup’s design employs silicone and BPA-free plastic, coming apart for easy washing either by hand or in a dishwasher. It also boasts a rotating tab that closes to form a liquid-tight seal for keeping your coffee or tea inside the cup at all times, whether expanded or crushed.

Go pledge at Kickstarter – $15

NVIDIA Shield Gaming Tablet

Gaming on the go is increasingly relegated to tablets, but it’s really no contest when faced up against the graphics output of a console or computer. Enter NVIDIA’s Shield, the first truly gaming-focused tablet complete with an 8-inch 1920×1200 HD touch display, NVIDIA’s own Tegra K1 192 core Kepler GPU, a 2.2GHz ARM Cortex A15 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB or 32GB of on-board flash memory that all work together to deliver by far the best gaming performance a tablet has ever seen. Pair it with the optional Shield wireless controller for that familiar console feel to either play independently on its display or hook it up to a television for big-screen gaming. And like any self respecting tablet, it’s also good at a myriad of non-leisurely tasks thanks to LTE connectivity, a Mini-HDMI port, front and rear 5MP cameras, and booming front-facing stereo speakers.

Betabrand Audio Engineer Hoodie

Cliff Clavin could regal you with a little known fact about hoodies. Originally developed in the mid 13th century, they were used to funnel the sound of grog horns and drums when attending the equivalent of present day rock concerts. Betabrand’s Audio Engineer Hoodie doesn’t fall far from the acoustic tree. Designed for audio engineers whose fashion sense comes second to the functionality of their wardrobe, this hoodie incorporates everything you need to mix, listen and feel your music. At first glance the dual kangaroo pocketed black, relaxed fit hoodie seems anti outré. But a closer look reveals features that any audiophile can appreciate. An interior line with a cassette-themed pattern sets the mood for music which is further developed with acoustically transparent hood panels that, like magic, allow sound to penetrate unmolested while remaining visibly solid. A headphone pass-through hole in the front pockets, left pocket loop for securing securables, internal headphone routing to the right pocket, and a secure chest pocket for your thumbdrive round out the engineering tech. There’s even wiring diagrams screened on the interior so you need only solder once.

Find it at Betabrand – $142

Jibo Robot

A long time coming, Jibo is the first family robot to hit the mainstream. More pet than device, Jibo can see (thanks to two high-res cameras), hear (using 360° microphones + natural language processing), speak, and most of all learn, helping you and your family go about your days by keeping everybody updated on their upcoming tasks and events, delivering messages, hosting video calls, taking pictures, and eventually much more - especially once developers get their hands on the SDK. And while he’s just 11″ tall and can’t physically move about (other than rotate or angle freely), here’s hoping some physical legs – or at least a balanced stand with motorized wheels – end up on the Jibo store.

Arriving late 2015. Learn more at Jibo – $500

Amongst the most notable film-bound vehicles in recent years, Dark Knight’s Tumbler has finally made it to Lego form, ending our string of sad attempts at recreating it ourselves. This 15-inch long model is surprisingly well detailed, down to the adjustable top wings, intricate interior, and large, custom rubber-treaded front wheels. It also includes both Batman and Joker mini-figurines amongst its 1869 pieces. Just don’t get carried away and try to punch it through drywall – we have a feeling it’s a little less resilient than Bruce’s.

Available in September in line with Comic-Con. Check it out at Lego – $200
