The HiRise dock, from Twelve South, is one elegant looking ‘pedestool’ for the Thunderbolt-equipped iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, iPad Mini, iPod Touch (5th generation), and iPod Nano (7th generation). Its name, “HiRise”, comes from the fact that the dock features a height adjustable Thunderbolt connector to accommodate virtually any case you may have on your iDevice.

Yellow Jacket iPhone Case – it’s a shocker!

yellow jacket iphone case

If you live in a shady neighborhood, you might want to take a close look at the Yellow Jacket iPhone Case. Notice the little metal prongs at the top? Yup, it’s a stun gun disguised as an iPhone case! With a name like Yellow Jacket (referring to wasps) it is certainly fitting. It can deliver 650,000 volts of stinging electricity, which can drop most people with ease; but with a max output of 1 milliamp it won’t be lethal. Be sure to check your local state laws before you think about buying one.

iPhone Air Concept

The iPhone Air concept from SET Solution imagines what the next iPhone iteration would look like. SET Solution’s rendition of the iPhone Air has a tapering profile just like the MacBook Air. At its thinnest point the phone measures 1.5mm at the top and gradually thickens to 3mm at the base. Weighing only 70 grams, the iPhone Air is 42 grams lighter than the 5s. Spec-wise, it’s got a 5″ screen, 10 megapixel camera, and Touch ID. If that video concept wasn’t enough, check out the unboxing of the iPhone Air after the jump.

Moga Ace Power: iPhone/iPod game controller

moga ace power controller

The Moga Ace Power controller lets you game on your Thunderbolt equipped Apple iPhone or iPod Touch without those silly onscreen touch controls. The Moga Ace Power features a console-like button layout: dual analog sticks, a D-Pad, four shoulder buttons, and four face buttons. In fact, the controller looks awfully similar to an Xbox 360 controller. It also has an expandable design to accommodate the slightly differing sizes of the iPhone and iPod Touch. The design also allows users to contract the controller (reducing its size) for portability, so you can slip the controller in your pocket and game on the go.

PowerUp 3.0 – control your paper airplanes with your iPhone

The PowerUp 3.0 (which is an upgrade from the PowerUp 2.0) allows you to turn an ordinary paper airplane into something you can control via your Apple iPhone. The PowerUp 3.0 is a battery-powered propeller with an attached rudder that allows you up to 10 minutes of controlled flight. Its features a carbon-fiber shaft, 180 feet range, and a crash proof bumper. All you have to do is fold yourself a paper airplane and attach the PowerUp 3.0 in between the center fold of the plane — right in-between the wings. Then, download and install the app on your iPhone and you’ll have full control of the paper airplane by tilting your phone left or right. However, this will be useless if you don’t know how to fold a paper plane. Keep reading to see the PowerUp 3.0 in action.

iLickit iPhone App: Gross!

This is probably the most unsanitary iPhone app to date, although I admit it’s pretty hilarious. iLickit allows ‘players’ to choose what type of food to lick…literally. Using a “special tongue optimized engine”, the game allows you to use your tongue to lick the screen clean of your desired virtual food. Enjoy the video demo.
