The Most Innovative Tech of 2016

The Electronic Numerical Integrator Analyzer and Computer (ENIAC) was one of the first and most famous consumer computers.

5 Ways Mobile Devices and Computers Support Social Behavior

The Internet, mobile devices, and social media all catch a lot of static when certain types of people say that technology, as opposed to bringing people together, is actually making them drift further apart.

Common Mistakes When Making a Video – And How to Avoid Them

Need a video?  Then why not make your own, right?  How hard can it be?

Take Your Gadgets To The Next Level With These Awesome Accessories

If you’re anything like us, you get a little tingly feeling when you find an awesome new gadget! It’s those clever little designs and ingenious inventions that we get excited about. Our entire website is devoted to fancy playthings and geeky inventions and this post is no different. Except, today we’re looking at all the extra things that make our gadgets even better. We’ve scoured the web for some of the coolest add-ons and accessories on the market. Here’s our pick of the bunch.

Wireless keyboard for smartphone – We couldn’t go anywhere without our smartphone, but it has one major problem. It’s less than ideal for those with chubby fingers! The touchscreen keyboards are just asking for countless autocorrect fails. Messy spelling and incorrect grammar are par for the course with small screen keyboards. Not ideal for business emails! We like to use a detachable, wireless qwerty keyboard. It slots into your iPhone and gives you much more control. It’s perfect for blogging on the fly too!

Phone sanitiser – You don’t even want to know how many germs and bacteria there are on your phone. With our hands all over them every day, they pick up some nasty surprises. We use an electronic phone sanitiser to purge it of the little critters!

Portable power bank – There are all sorts of portable chargers and power banks on the market. They make sure you never drop another call or miss an important email again. Your mum can always get through to you and you can check Twitter without risking your battery life. There are plenty out there, but we think Huuman have some of the coolest designs.

Selfie stick – Whether you love them or hate them, there’s no doubting their popularity! They turn every activity into a photo perfect moment. They’re loved by the adventure community for filming their epic ski runs on a GoPro. After gaining traction, they’re now commonplace around our cities.

Smartphone camera lens – Most modern smartphone cameras have incredible power. They are super high definition and ready for anything. However, you can step it up a notch with an extra camera lens. Great for Instagrammers and amateur photo enthusiasts. You can choose from a fish eye lens or a soft focus specialist.

External smartphone speakers – Now you can have a spontaneous party wherever you are! Whether it’s a trip to the beach or a night in at your friend’s house, extra speakers make a big difference. Most smartphone speakers are just too tinny and hollow for decent sound quality. Every sound obsessed geek needs an upgrade.

Pillow speakers – A slight alternative to the previous point, pillow speakers are simply amazing. Studies have shows that listening to music before falling asleep helps you rest better. Plug your mp3 player or smartphone into the special pillow, and it will play soothing music into your ears. Wonderful!

True gadget lovers aren’t content with simple toys; they need upgrades! Take your gadgets to the next level with these awesome add-ons. Have we missed any of your favourite accessories?
