Slingshot: The Universal Smartphone Stabilizer

I had started working on a smartphone stabilizer for my iPhone 4 about 9 months ago now.  I purchased all kinds of mini tripods, accessories, and some carbon fiber parts from the local RC shop.  It was a pretty sad attempt at macgyvering something, and I wasn’t satisfied with the results, so I just shelved it and thought that someone else will eventually create something.  Today, it has nearly come to reality.

Your iPhone should be making your life a whole lot easier thanks to all the features that it brings with it.

And it’s portable as well, that’s even more good.

SolMate iPhone 4 Case Is Not Your Typical Solar Charger

Okay, so solar power chargers aren’t anything new per say, so why should we care about this one? First off, it’s design seems solid and it is from folks who clearly have worked for reputable technology companies in the past. Beyond that, this is highly polished compared to cheaper alternatives (such as Chinese solar solution), and even consists of an additional battery and a 16-bit microcontroller that communicates with a custom iOS app for the SolMate.

The PumpTire is quite different, addressing a very common concern with all cyclists: the slow leak of air pressure. To fix this, the PumpTire effectively pumps itself.
