The Sprocket Rocket

This is pretty rad… Essentially, it’s one of those cheap and plastic vintage style cameras that accepts 35mm film. Only this camera exposes your film in a panoramic length. Just as cool, the “shutter opening” is so large that even the sprocket holes on your film are exposed. Hence, the name…

You can get yours for $89.


Lum-Tec Combat F

We’ve reviewed Lum-Tec watches before. I like the brand simply because they are built like tanks and feature clean military styling. A while back, Lum-Tec announced a new limited edition chrono based on the ETA 7750 movement. They call it the “Combat F” and frankly, I love it. Initially they were offered at almost $1500, but they have since dropped the price to $1,270.75. That’s a pretty smoking deal for a nicely finished 7750 watch. A Breitling with the same movement would easily run you four or five times that…

HyperMac External Batteries

HyperMac batteries rule. Essentially, they are an external solution for extra battery life with iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks. Let’s say you are on the road and your MacBook is running low on juice. Plug in a HyperMac Battery and get up to 28 additional hours of usage. Or lets say you are vending at an event and want to take credit cards with your 3G iPad. No sweat, there is a battery for that.

Rad, right? Well, there is an issue… Apple is making HyperMac cease production. We all have until November 2nd to get our batteries before they are no more.

Boom Boxes

This is rad. Some dude has been taking vintage suitcases and wiring up sound systems inside. He provides a 3.5mm input for connecting just about any source, built-in amps, and a rechargeable battery that pounds for up to 8 hours. A bit silly, yes… But I totally dig it.

The Glif: iPhone Tripod Mount & Stand

This is brilliant on so many levels. Essentially, Kickstarter is a site that allows you to post an idea for a project and then get funding to see it though. It’s funded by schmoes like you and me that browse the site and then kick in a little dough if we see something we would like to see in production. This iPhone accessory is a perfect example.

The Glif is a combo tool that works itself into an iPhone 4 stand and tripod mount. It’s totally bitchin…

Check out the details here.

In any case, the Glif needed $10,000 to move into production and to date they’ve already pulled in over $75,000. So, it looks like this one is happening.
