    The Jump Charging Cable Comes With A Tiny Built-In Battery Of Its Own

    The Jump Charging Cable Comes With A Tiny Built In Battery Of Its OwnPortable battery packs and battery cases for the iPhone are a dime a dozen, but what about charging cables? Wouldn’t it be awesome if your cable could provide your iPhone with a quick charge when you need it? That’s exactly what Native Union’s Jump phone cable does. On the surface it just looks like a normal looking Lightning cable, but in the photo above, you might notice the middle section which is where the cable would be wound around when not in use. Well hidden in that area is actually a small-ish battery around 800mAh which should be enough to provide your phone with an additional 33% of battery in emergency situations.

    How it works is that it connects to USB ports and power plugs as per normal, but once your phone is done charging, the power is then redirected to the hidden battery to juice up and store some power. Given that the Jump cable weighs only 40 grams, it’s small enough to fit into your pocket so that you can bring to work with you or take it with you on the go to locations where there might not necessarily have a power outlet for you to charge your phone with. The good news is that the Jump cable will be available as a Lightning cable for iOS users, or as a microUSB cable for Android, BlackBerry, or Windows Phone users, and will cost $40 if you were to pledge to its Kickstarter campaign, otherwise expect to fork out around $50 for it when it becomes available later in May.

    Jalapeño Beat Maker Remixes Music In Real-Time

    Jalapeño Beat Maker Remixes Music In Real TimeThey say that music makes the world go round. Wait a minute, or is that money? Either way, I am quite sure that fans of music as well as money would agree that both of them will inject life into a dour world, so for those who feel that they were born to groove to various tunes and music, here is the Jalapeño Beat Maker that might be worth checking out. A Kickstarter project that has not yet met its funding goal of $53,000, the Jalapeño Beat Maker is a portable device that will remix music in real-time based on your tricks, turns, and spins. In a nutshell, you would end up being the beat yourself.

    Each time you move, your music will be tweaked in order for it to match your tricks, turns, and spins. The more you ride, I guess it is safe to warrant a guess that you end up being one with the beat, now how about that? The early bird Jalapeño Beat Maker package would cost you $199, and assuming that this particular Kickstarter project actually gains traction and take off, it ought to begin delivering from October this year onward. Being weatherproof and durable, you know that your next skiing or snowboarding session is never going to be the same again. [Kickstarter Page]

    Aurisonics’ Rockets IEMs Claims To Be “Indestructible”

    Aurisonics Rockets IEMs Claims To Be IndestructibleDon’t you just hate it when your earphones either break or keep falling out of your ear? A lot of companies have in the past attempted to correct that, but because everyone’s ears are shaped differently, the success of such devices are hit and miss, unless of course you were to get an earpiece custom designed for you. Those options are expensive and companies such as Logitech charges thousands for such solutions with their UE lineup. Perhaps looking to succeed where others has failed are Aurisonic who have announced the successful funding of their Rockets IEMs on Kickstarter.

    So what makes the Rockets earphones so different from the rest? Well Aurisonics does not appear to be holding back when it comes to durability and strength of these earphones. For starters the shells of the  earphones will be made from titanium, not only making it incredibly strong, but light-weight as well. The cables are made from Kevlar meaning that they should be able to withstand the abuse of daily use, and are anchored by Kevlar at 3 points to the shell meaning that it should solve the problem of broken connections. To top things off, the Rockets will be waterproof as well, meaning you will be able to take them with you on a workout and it should not be affected by sweat.

    So with durability out of the way, what about fit? According to Aurisonics, the Rockets IEMs will feature a tri-tab silicon retention collar that will grab onto the inner parts of your ear, allowing for a more secure fit, which the company believes you can even sleep with them out without worrying about it falling out. Also because of their design, much like other IEMs, you can actually listen to music with the volume down as they go deeper than regular earphones or headphones, which will provide a safer listening experience. As it stands Aurisonics’ Kickstarter project is a success but if you’d like to learn more or grab a pair, hit up their Kickstarter page for the details.

    Power Pillow Another Kickstarter Project That Wants To Take Off

    Power Pillow Another Kickstarter Project That Wants To Take OffWe have seen our fair share of Kickstarter projects in the past, and this time around, here is yet another one which is pretty interesting. Known as the Power Pillow, the creators behind it have dubbed it to be the “world’s first pillow that recharges smart devices.” It sounds rather glamorous, but basically, the Power Pillow happens to be a soft housing for a battery pack which is able to juice up your mobile devices whenever there is no power outlet available in the vicinity. Having said that, it makes perfect sense then for the Power Pillow to take the form of a standard pillow which will come in various designs, where they will be able to hide the clever way of charging your range of portable devices, including smartphones, tablets, and other kinds of devices which can be powered via USB. In a nutshell, the Power Pillow functions as the housing for the lithium-polymer battery pack.

    Other than opening up the door for you to juice up your devices on the move, it also lets you keep your charging smartphone close to you at all times, making sure you will be able to attend to that incoming call or text message without having to be somewhere else. Right now, the Power Pillow project seeks to raise CAD$30,000 (US$28,000), and all you need to pledge is CAD$132 (US$125) to bring home a full Power Pillow charging system should it be successful.
