5 Must Have Gadgets and Accessories for Your iPhone
Here at Inspirationfeed we are all about innovation, creativity, and quality. The tech scene has been flooded with so many cool gadgets, and we are here to showcase them to you. It’s hard to distinguish good from great, but we went ahead and took that challenge. The following gadgets/accessories are mostly focused on the good old iPhone. Unless you have been under a rock, you already know how much market share Apple has.
With more and more developers focusing on iOS, the platform is growing stronger every single day. It’s pretty obvious that if a company provides a great ecosystem between all of their devices, more users will adapt it. Apple saw this a while back and now every other company is rushing to counter the attack. So if you are an iPhone/iPod Touch owner, try to resist the temptation of pulling out your credit-card when you see these awesome gadgets!
1. Instaprint | Instagram Photo Booth
Instaprint is a location based photo booth that can transform parties and events by putting a camera in everyone’s hand. By setting Instaprint to look out for specific locations or hashtags, any Instagram tagged appropriately will automatically be printed out on inkless paper. Now I know that you are probably thinking that this is just a waste of ink. Why print something, when everything is digital?
Instead of dealing with ink cartridges that constantly need replacement, Instaprint uses an inkless technology where all color is pulled right from the paper itself. For higher volume printing and an even better look, additional Instaprints can be daisy chained together to share power and connectivity. Each multi-box set up requires one Instaprint that has a controller and Wi-Fi module which then drives the other controller-less Instaprints.
Considering the success of Instagram, this idea is very convincing. Currently it’s trying to get funded via Kickstarter. The thought of bringing the nostalgia of old Polaroid prints back to modern day is pleasing. Each Instaprint box is set with its location or a specific hashtag. Any Instagram tagged with that location or hashtag will pop out of the Instaprint box, giving you a modern day photo booth. If your excitement level is above average, consider making this a reality!
2. Sphero | Smartphone Controlled Ball
It’s the ball evolved. Thumbs up for their great slogan! Sphero is like nothing you’ve seen before. It’s the first robotic ball that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing from your smartphone or tablet. The cute looking ball delivers a unique mixed-reality experience with single and multi-player games that let you engage in the virtual world and play in the real one.Sphero will continue to challenge, entertain, and always surprise you.
3. Jawbone Up | Wristband and App
