Apple has announced new phones and updates for the iDevices. First off, its the launch of the iPhone 5S. This one is an obvious upgrade to its predecessor, the good old iPhone 5, which has now been discontinued. The expected price drop that the iPhone 5 had to take with the coming of the 5S, is a slot now being filled by the new iPhone 5C. Remember, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are very different phones.
The world is currently engorging on iPhone 5S rumors, and the possibility of the new device being unveiled pretty soon. Something like that cannot be complete unless a funny parody is thrown into the mix, like the one we see here. Just so you know, in iPhone 5S, S stands for “same”.
Makeup compact iPhone 5 case happens to be just an image case, sorry anyone who was hoping to carry a touch of makeup on the back of their phone. The case has an image of a makeup compact kit on its back, which while looking very realistic, happens to be just an image. Although we are pretty sure that since the idea is out in the open now, someone will sooner or later come up with a phone case that does make room for compact. Costs $24.
Built for the iPad, this pocket pico projector allows you to have a larger screen on demand where you can watch videos at leisure and on a larger screen. Weighing less than 5 oz, the projector connects to the iPad’s 30-pin charging port and projects the required image in a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Built for the iPhone, this adapter supports most standard sized binoculars and gives a better eye and movement for your phone camera zoom. Fit the adapter nice and well to the phone and the binoculars, and you get a good optical zoom to look forward to. Of course, the paths of overkill are still open, but this just seems so much simpler. Costs $18.
We aren’t quite the wisest people around, but a 100X astronomical telephoto lens for the iPhone sounds kind of like an overkill. The iPhone is an excellent device for leisurely capturing photos for things around you, perhaps a few accessories for the phone camera won’t really be bad, but how much is overkill? We guess a gigantic lens that works for 100X zoom on an iPhone 5 can be the place to draw the line. But then there might be a good percentage who actually might find this useful, in that case, get $226.95 ready and head on to the seller’s website.
iPhone Mashup Shoe might be the ridiculous mashup of a shoe and an iphone case/holder, but we are good people that don’t judge. The 3D printed shoes include a strap and case along their heel where the phone goes. It might be a little trouble, but you get to pull off a Bond-style shoe phone technique. Yeah, Bond looked better but I’m not James Bond, and that sucker did not have 3D printed shoes and a smartphone. You hear that Mr Bond? I’m better than you.
OZAKI O! coat Lover case for the iPhone 5 has been built for lovers. The cases come in a pair of two, where one is shaped like the female, and the other as the male. When brought together, the cases fit in to get into a lip lock that would describe the love of their owners. A very warm, romantic idea, though we remain skeptical of the practical use of all those curves, corners and nooks these cases would throw at their users. But lovers would probably scorn at these trivial issues and overcome the challenge of the possibly uncomfortable pointy cases with the power of love. The pair of cases is priced at 4580 JPY (~$45).
ChatPerf Scentee addon for iPhones adds another dimension to texting, allowing users to send a scent to go along their messages. It’s use could of course be extended to situations where you receive notifications on your phone, or for reminders. The technology of course, is still growing and the palate of the device is extremely limited at the moment.
Folks at Aatma Studios answered the nagging question that everyone had in their mind; how well do iPhones work as dominoes? The digital production studio used some of its digital wizardry to create the 10,000 iPhone 5 Domino. It has been basically developed as a third party spec ad for the iPhone 5 with NFC (Near Field Communications) that many people would probably like to see on the hotly rumored iPhone 5s.
