Logitech G Fits earbuds have custom molding ear tips for passive noise isolation and peak comfort

The sound quality and comfortable fit of any pair of earbuds depends on how well they rest inside your ear canals. Audiophiles who want the best experience often go for the custom-fit ear tips that mold to the shape of the ear canal for the best possible passive noise isolation and state-of-the-art comfort.

Logitech is entering the highly competitive true wireless earbuds market with a USP all audiophiles will be interested in. The stylish earbuds bring to the fore custom molded ear tips that promise the best-personalized fit audio lovers can wish from TWS earbuds on the market. Of course, not forget the enhanced bass, sound quality and isolation from disturbing noises in crowded spaces without relying on Active Noise Canceling feature.

Designer: Logitech

In a way the Logitech G Fits are similar to the Ultimate Ears’ (a brand that Logitech owns) UE Fits earbuds that boast the Lightform feature making the custom molded fit possible. Their feature list for gamers and power users makes the G series earbuds a better option. The pill-shaped earbuds when inserted for the first time in the ear canals will prompt the user to push a button so that the gel tips harden with flashing LEDs, taking up the ear’s canal shape in a 60-seconds setup. This totally seals the cavity without causing long-term wearing discomfort and blocks all the noises. Now, how cool is that?

Let’s not forget, these are centered on gaming and an active lifestyle, so Logitech has equipped them with Lightspeed wireless technology for the lowest possible low-latency connection. Also, there are Bluetooth capabilities for gaming and standard mode options depending on usage. The Lightspeed dongle connects via USB-A or the USB A-to-C adapter for a negligible audio delay while gaming. This ensures seamless connectivity with any device you want to connect with like the Logitech G Cloud handheld or even PlayStation 5.

Since the G Fits virtually eliminate the need for any active noise canceling, the earbuds last for 10 hours on a single charge and another 12 hours in the battery case. Though it should be noted, the Lightspeed mode will bring the figure down to 7 hours and 8 hours in the charging case respectively. Having 10mm drivers, the G Fits promise a “full, warm, detailed sound with deep, punchy bass.” The dual beamforming microphones per bud deliver vocal clarity for taking calls or in-game conversations.

Overall, I like the prospect of Logitech’s unique offering – especially, the ability to get the best custom fit as it enhances the overall listening experience. They’ll be available for a price tag of $229 in two color options – back and white – when finally available in October next month. Initially, the earbuds will be launched in North America and in other parts of the world in 2023.

Vlog 1 concept is an all-in-one, portable tool for vloggers to help you be the next influencer!

A lot of people now, especially the younger ones, have at one point or another tried or wanted to try vlogging. I myself have considered it for both professional and personal reasons. But one thing that has stopped me from going all out is that there is just so much to think about equipment-wise. When it comes to content or planning or promoting, I have no problems. But just thinking about the shooting and editing part is enough to make me just put it off indefinitely.

Designer: Stang .id

The designer thought about this problem that vloggers face: choosing the right equipment, setting it up, carrying all the equipment around, etc. He came up with a product concept that current and future vloggers will probably want to come true eventually. The Vlog 1 is a concept that combines a camera, a built-in gimbal for stability, a built-in microphone, space for a bigger battery, and all in a portable and sturdy package. There are no attachments or things to plug in so you can just go ahead and shoot and record whatever you want.

If you’re used to using a traditional camera, the button controls here will seem very familiar. It uses an old-school knob to switch modes so you won’t have to panic (or is that just me?) when you need to do something else while shooting. It has a built-in gimbal so you can shoot steady and the joystick lets you have control over the gyro movement when panning or tracking. And while you’re shooting your video, there’s a quick access button that will let you take pictures when needed.

The Vlog 1 also has a built-in flashlight that gives a similar effect to what the ubiquitous ring lights bring. This means you don’t need to carry around extra lights while you’re shooting. It also has a built-in mic that can shut out unwanted noise because of its padding. The battery should also last you longer, at least in theory. The best thing about this concept is that the device is pretty portable so you can carry it anywhere without spending minutes on setting everything up.

The device looks like a mini-robot or a character that will fit in Wall-E. Hopefully, if it becomes an actual product, the video and sound quality will also be great as those are probably the two most important things a vlogger needs.

These ergonomic earbuds double up as speaker controls, adding a new dimension of functionality to wearables

There have been a lot of truly wireless earbuds and earbud concepts over the past few years as wired devices have gone out of style. But basically, they serve just one purpose and that is to play something in your ears or as a secondary tool for accessing digital assistants like Siri, Google Assistant, etc. Once they’re off your ears though, they become practically useless and most of the time, they’re just sitting pretty there in the charging case. What if they had another function when they’re not in your ears.

Designer: Liam de la Bedoyere for Bored Eye

That’s one of the main ideas behind the Bored Buds, a concept for a pair of earbuds that are not just intuitively designed but are also multi-functional. Basically, they’re earbuds that are also part of a Bluetooth speaker. So when you’re not listening to music using the audio accessories, they are nestled in the speakers through the protective case and serve as the control buttons. The speaker itself does not have any interface or display so the earbuds will serve as your on/off, pause/play, and volume up/down buttons.

But as earbuds, they are also pretty well-designed. They are pill-shaped so they will fit comfortably in your ears. They are made from titanium, they are water-resistant and durable, and are 100% recyclable. They have magnetic connections and there is no cover as the buds nestle below the surface. The case is attached to the speakers through a USB-C connection. The controls themselves are gesture-sensitive both as earbuds and for the speakers.

When switching from the speakers to the earbuds, you only have to pinch them to transfer the sound back. Both the speaker and the earbuds use monochromatic colors and minimalist design. Hopefully, the sound will also be of good quality as no matter how good a design is, it’s how an audio accessory sounds that can make or break it. This is an interesting concept for audiophiles who want to have music and other aural products always on hand.

A folding iPhone + more concepts we wish Apple had announced during the keynote

Since its foundation in 1976, Apple has been always been at the peak of modern innovation! And let’s take a moment to appreciate all the awesome products and inspiration Apple has provided us with. The groundbreaking tech giant never fails to surprise us, we always find ourselves biting our nails and squirming with curiosity, whenever Apple announces a new product launch! Their ingenious and mesmerizing designs and design philosophy have inspired and influenced designers all over the world, resulting in some pretty unique Apple-inspired designs! From an Apple game console concept to a folding iPhone we wish Apple had announced during the keynote – these mind-blowing designs are the best of the lot and a dream for every Apple lover. We can’t help but just hope that Apple converts these into a reality soon as well!

1. The iPhone Fold

Meet the iPhone iFold, a concept foldable from the mind of Michal Dufka. The iPhone iFold (although Apple would probably call it the iPhone Dynamic Clamshell) follows the format of the MotoRAZR and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, with a clamshell-style folding design that gives you the benefit of a compact iPhone with a generously large screen. This is the first iPhone to have two displays. With a smaller display located just to the side of the camera bump, the iPhone iFold, you can now access important stats and notifications without opening your phone. Sort of like having the convenience of an Apple Watch, this secondary display gives you the gist of what’s up.

2. The Apple Car

Meet the Apple Car, from the mind of an AI. Designed by Dall-E 2 based on a text prompt from designer, educator, and YouTuber John Mauriello, this Apple Car is fascinating for two prime reasons – the car’s design itself, but more importantly, the underlying AI technology that ended up creating the car. The genesis for this idea came from Marques Brownlee’s own efforts with DALL-E 2. In a YouTube video, Brownlee demonstrated how simply typing the words “Apple Car” resulted in a car that looked like the apple fruit.

3. The Apple Watch Series X

Titled the Apple Watch Series X, this quirky concept gives you a smartwatch with a larger folding screen, allowing you to use it as a de-facto iPhone. After all, your watch can make phone calls, right? The Apple Watch Series X is your regular foldable, in the sense that it comes with a primary screen on the front, and opens like a book to reveal a ‘larger’ secondary screen on the inside. Obviously, I use the word ‘larger’ rather loosely, considering how small the Apple Watch’s form factor is, to begin with. Designed to sit on your wrist, this foldable concept turns the square-shaped WatchOS interface into a more traditional landscape one, unlocking the possibility for a lot of regular apps to make their way onto the wristwatch, including better Netflix and YouTube-watching experiences.

4. The Apple iCar

Meet the Apple iCar, a conceptual automobile from the mind of Ukraine-based Echo Studio. This vehicle has a rather luxurious supercar-inspired appeal to it. I see a little bit of the Audi R8 and the lesser-known Lamborghini Asterion in the iCar. The vehicle has an aggressive, speedy silhouette, a rounded back, and some beautifully designed headlights and taillights. There’s obviously an Apple logo on the front, but each wheel sports some drop-dead gorgeous rims with Apple logos on them too.

5. Apple Pencil 2

Apple is naturally aware of the limitations of its own stylus, but it is also aware of how the Pencil’s minimalist design played a big role in its favorable reception. Simply adding buttons would have solved one problem at the expense of a well-loved trait, so that was definitely a no-go. A newly awarded patent (reported by Patently Apple), however, reveals one idea that the Cupertino-based company has played with, one that could hit two birds with one stone. In a nutshell, it extends the second-gen Apple Pencil to include another touch-sensitive area, one near the middle of the stylus, to expand the number of gestures that people can use. For example, rather than just double-tapping the area, one can also slide their finger on the touch-sensitive surface. This gesture can be mapped to some action, such as changing the size of a brush or scrubbing the timeline of a video.

6. Apple AirPods Pro 2022

In line with the leaks and speculations about Apple’s upcoming flagship earbuds, designer Konstantin Milenin has created this concept AirPods Pro 2022 model to give our imagination a tangible form. The stemless design of the audio accessories looks minimal and compact. The charging case also gets a flatter design to accommodate these little earbuds. Unlike the current version, these lay flat on their belly like a clamshell design, and don’t have an upright stance. This will mean, a lot less space needed to stash them in your pocket or keep them in the bag pack.

7. All-screen Apple MacBook Concept

This different species Apple MacBook will, Antonio defines, support TouchID (as a slide button), a trimmed version of FaceID, and a gorgeous AirPen to scribble neatly on the generously big screen. All-display foldable Mac may lack a physical keyboard but the design here makes provision for the choice to pull up a digital keyboard with haptic feedback for the real typing feel. Fanboys may or may not fancy the idea of an all-screen MacBook, but there is little denying the fact that such a device will have dual usage. An iPad role to play when folded and a full-fledged laptop when open.

8. 2022 MacBook Air Concept

If you have been following Apple leaks, you would be aware that the MacBook Air is expected in multiple colors, which is more than the gold, silver, and space grays we are used to. The new MacBook Air could roll out in a multitude of hues that would match the iMac colors. Taking leverage to show off the new MacBook Air renders in multiple colors, the YouTuber has created a design of the device to match that of the 14-inch MacBook Pro with a rounded body. This is done to unify the entire MacBook lineup to look the same, which would be Apple’s idea too, as it has followed a unified design approach for the entire MacBook Air lineup in the past.

9. The Apple 8K Professional Camera

The Apple 8K Professional Camera offers onboard Siri, StyleWriter Compact Ink-less Printing, a Touch and Tilt rear display, and a Magic Wheel with a touch screen button. It’s like the perfect camera, at least, for big Apple fans, but it’s too good to be true. The Apple ProCam seems like a dream, and it is. However, with Apple discontinuing the iPod series, we doubt it will release another separate product line when the iPhone is already very powerful.

10. Apple game console concept

Built for peak gaming performance along with tactically placed joystick, buttons, and shoulder triggers; the Apple handheld console comes with complimentary photography and video shooting capabilities. It’s loaded with a rear camera sensor and a front camera as well. The latter will come in handy for live game streaming on the fly. The front-facing speakers are positioned on the top left and right corners for surround sound effects while identifying the muffled enemy’s footsteps.

This MagSafe power bank can charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at once

We’ve come to rely on a lot of gadgets in our lives today. From smartphones to smartwatches, we surround ourselves with battery-powered devices that often need to be charged every now and then. That’s especially true if you’re knee-deep into Apple’s mobile ecosystem, owning an iPhone and the accessories that go along with it. Keeping these devices charged at home is no longer a problem, thanks to a variety of multi-functional chargers that try to accommodate all of them at the same time. When you’re on the go, however, it’s an entirely different matter, especially because they have different ways to charge. This new portable battery pack from Momax, however, solves all of that and is the only power bank you’ll need to top up your Apple gadgets all at the same time.

Apple’s new MagSafe for iPhone opened the doors to a new breed of accessories that could take advantage of the magnet-aligned wireless charging technology. Many docks for home or office use incorporated these wireless technologies to create a haven for iPhones, Apple Watches, and compatible AirPods cases, many of which can charge all three devices simultaneously. While convenient, the problem with these docks is that you can’t bring any of them outside, let alone use them when there’s no power outlet to plug into.

MagSafe-compatible power banks do exist, but those are designed only for iPhones, leaving no room for its accessories. That’s where the Momax AirBox Go comes in, providing a home away from home for your Apple devices. Even more importantly, you don’t actually have to choose between those devices which to charge first because you can charge them all at the same time. Even if you don’t actually need to charge them simultaneously, it’s still reassuring that you can use the same power bank for your iPhone, Apple Watch, or AirPods.

The AirBox Go uses a rather ingenious design to make this possible. There is a small circle that flips up in order to support charging an Apple Watch even in Nightstand mode. There is a cover that reveals a nook for an AirPods wireless charging case. And, of course, there’s that telltale circle for MagSafe for iPhones. In addition to ensuring a precise alignment every time, the magnet is also strong enough to hold an iPhone in place, even while holding the power bank upside down.

The Momax AirBox Go is also no slouch when it comes to actual power output. With a 10,000mAh battery inside, the battery pack can charge an iPhone three times over at a fast 15W output. That’s twice the output of most aftermarket MagSafe power banks. And for everything else, there’s still a 20W USB-C port that can be used to juice up other devices, such as an iPad mini. Of course, it can also be used for any USB-C device, like that odd Android phone you might have lying around.

Portable, powerful, multi-functional, and convenient, the Momax AirBox Go offers the ultimate flexibility in charging your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods wherever you go. Mixing the best of Apple technologies with innovative design, this power bank might very well be the only one you’ll ever need. For just $136, you no longer have to worry about your Apple devices running out of power, especially when you need to charge them all at the same time.

Orbit PC mouse gives your upper body an exercise to avoid strain injuries

The computer mouse today may look a bit different compared to its first incarnation, but the fundamental design of this important input device hasn’t exactly changed over the decades. That, unfortunately, also means that the problems associated with this old design haven’t really disappeared either, especially those that cause physical injury over time. There has been a great deal of interest lately in redesigning the mouse to be more ergonomic, but not everyone agrees that changing the shape is enough. This design concept, for example, takes a very different approach to resolving the problem of repetitive strain injury or RSI, mostly by shifting the movement away from the arm and wrists and giving your upper body a workout instead.

Designer: Simon Hochleitner

The computer mouse and even the computer keyboard are very unnatural interfaces as far as our bodies are concerned. Especially with the mouse, the hand and the arm it’s attached to are forced into an unnatural position, whether it is in motion or at rest. The movements associated with prolonged and repeated use of the mouse eventually lead to what is sometimes called “mouse arm,” as well as the injuries that come with it. You might think that your arm is getting some exercise, but it’s really the wrong kind of movement and resting position that actually causes those injuries.

Ergonomic mice can only do so much since it simply shifts the tension and strain to other parts of the hand and arm. Orthopedists and physiotherapists might have a different idea on how to solve this problem, and it unsurprisingly involves using correct movements and posture. What may come as a surprise, however, is how this can be done by simply changing the way we use the mouse.

James Dyson Award national winner Orbit redesigns the mouse not by changing its shape but by changing the way we move it across a flat surface. Instead of simply sliding over a mouse pad, Orbit has three resistance bands that hold the “mouse” in the center. To move the mouse, you have to exert a bit of effort to counter the resistance, which, in turn, shifts the force to other muscle groups, particularly the ones responsible for posture. With this system, the body is forced not to slouch and use those upper body muscles instead of relying on wrist and forearm muscles to move the mouse.

Orbit actually does change the design of the mouse by turning it into a joystick. Unlike a typical joystick, however, you still have to move it across the surface, much like a mouse. The only difference is that the joystick shape keeps the arm in a more natural position to reduce stress. The touch-sensitive ring on top acts as a mouse wheel so that you don’t have to change your hand’s position or stop the movement just to use it. There is also a “flat” version that more closely resembles a traditional mouse that’s designed for gamers.

Whether it’s changing the shape of the mouse or adding some resistance, it’s encouraging to see designers challenging the status quo when it comes to this input device. It might still take some time before the industry embraces these ideas, but increasing awareness about the problems with computer mice is an important first step in changing people’s perceptions.

Puppy-inspired speaker concept to help elderly communicate with loved ones

Depending on which part of the world you live in, elderly or senior citizens living on their own may either be an uncommon occurrence or a growing problem. If you live somewhere where the latter is becoming more prevalent, you may also see several products that are now trying to solve the problem of alienation and loneliness that comes from older people living alone. There are of course the usual gadgets like smartphones and tablets but there may be some limitations to those for the elderly.

Designer: YoungEun Ahn

The Puppimily is a touch screen speaker that uses Artificial Intelligence to help out those who may have some visual and aural difficulties because of their age. But it’s more important purpose is to help the elderly deal with the psychological issues of living alone by connecting them with loved ones through the device. The design of the speaker is that of a puppy as both the word and the animal itself evokes a certain comfort and warmth with the name itself a mix of puppy and family.

The main colors of the device are black and white with the colors coming into the display and representing the different interactions that the user may have. There is also a character that can help express the different emotions from the user. LED lights and the movements of the speakers’ ears may be used to indicate certain emotions or indicators like yellow for notifications, blue to indicate that they are listening, etc. The monitor can move 360 degrees from left to right and 60 degrees from top to bottom.

The icons shown in the display are intuitive and easy to understand and there are no more than five icons at a time to avoid confusion. There are also very few buttons to make it more user-friendly for the elderly. There are only three in the body: up, down, and the power button. The device uses intuitive visuals, text using voice recognition, voice recording, and other AI-powered functions that will help lessen the burden of being on screens too much. But on times when you need to do video calls, you can do so on a wide screen with other intuitive elements added.

I don’t know if we really do need another gadget to add to the one million ones in the market but this concept does have a different market in mind. The smallish screen based on the renders may be a deterrent to elderly people’s use since they prefer to have a bigger screen so maybe if it does become an actual product, this is something they can improve on.

Cisco Home Hub helps manage smart devices, data, more securely at home

We’re already so used to having all of our data on a cloud that we rarely think about all of our personal information, photos, videos, and other data just floating around there in unknown locations. Well, we only become aware when a data breach or something similar is publicized. But more often than not, we implicitly trust these servers to protect our data. But what if you could have your own, private cloud in a secure location, specifically your home or your office?

Designer: Heinrich Zaunschirm and Emile Chuffart for Cisco

The Cisco Home Hub looks like a simple smart speaker hub in terms of its design. But when it comes to functionality, it’s something that brings you data security from the comfort of your own home. It is a modular and upgradable home hub since users’ needs usually change or are in need of upgrading every once in a while. The base station has a 5G router that is protected with a firewall so you know that all your data stored and connected devices are more secure than when it’s hosted somewhere else.

The base can be extended by adding network-attached storage which you can add or remove if it needs to be used in another place or attached somewhere else. All the data as well as your connected smart home devices are also easily accessed and managed through an on-device system. You have a display on top of the base with a home control and file manager although you can also access these through a smartphone app.

The Cisco Home Hub may be a necessary addition to your home devices especially if you have multiple users, devices, and data that need to be managed more securely. The minimalist look with light, pastel colors as well as the user interface and device design itself seems pretty accessible and not hard to use and manage.

Arcade Machine Coin Slots Gashapon Toys: Insert Coin to Play Anything

Modeled after the coin gobbling slots of vintage arcade machines, this Japanese gashapon (plastic toy capsule) series from Tama-Kyu features life-size realistic coin slots. They’re perfect for providing a constant reminder of just how many quarters you’ve pumped into machines over the years. My personal guess is somewhere in the tens of thousands.

The toys come in four styles: black and silver ‘light up’ models (probably the ones we’re most familiar with in the U.S.), and more traditional Japanese style black and gray flush coin slots with a return button, which also includes a faux coin return. All include an adhesive backing so you can stick them anywhere. I’m going to stick one to my forehead and pretend I’m a pinball machine!

It’s a shame that arcades aren’t as popular as they once were. I remember when I was a kid, my family would go to the mall on weekends, and I’d bee-line it straight to Time-Out. There I’d turn my weekly allowance into quarters and line them up one by one on the Street Fighter II machine, only to get my ass handed to me by an opponent much more skilled than I was while I repeatedly tried and failed to perform Chun-Li’s Spinning Bird Kick. Looking back, those were the days – I just didn’t know it at the time.

Top 10 accessories that pair up perfectly with Apple’s new launches

Since its foundation in 1976, Apple has been always been at the peak of modern innovation! The groundbreaking tech giant never fails to surprise us, we always find ourselves biting our nails and squirming with curiosity, whenever Apple announces a new product launch! My Apple devices are some of my most prized possessions – in the sense that I simply cannot do without them! My MacBook holds all the documents and data I hold holy in my life, whereas my iPhone stores the details of every single person I know. I would truly be lost without my gadgets. As ingenious as Apple products can be, it’s always fun to amp them up with a few exciting accessories. From luxurious + eco-friendly iPhone 14 cases to an accessory that allows your iPhone to be used as a webcam for your MacBook – these innovative accessories are the perfect sidekicks to Apple’s new launches!

1. SCIO

Taking inspiration from Sony’s QX10 and QX100 modular camera lenses, SCIO is a mirrorless lens that simply attaches to your iPhone via MagSafe. Snap it on and your smartphone is now a professional shooter capable of much more realistic portrait shots and telephoto images. Combine this with Apple’s own computational photography chops and the SCIO turns the iPhone into easily the best camera a consumer can own, without breaking the bank.

2. Mujjo’s iPhone 14 Cases

Mujjo has already created a collection of luxurious cases for the iPhone 14! The cases are supposed to be the company’s most eco-friendly ones to date. The cases are created from Ecco Leather, which is now Gold Rated by the Leather Working Group. The beautiful vegetable-tanned leather is produced in the Netherlands and provides a durable finish that will develop a patina over time, making each individual case unique. The interior of the case is lined with the finest Japanese microfibre – which is slim, lightweight, and yet extremely strong. It has a stunning satin-like finish which gives the case a really elegant and luxurious feel.

3. Apple AirTag Metal Carabiners

The AirTags can be pretty plain, perhaps even too plain, so these precision metal work carabiners try to give it a little more personality while also keeping your property safe and always within reach, even when they’re lost. Unlike typical metal carabiners, these AirTag carabiners aren’t made from melted metal poured into casting. Instead, each part is precision made from solid metal, carefully crafted by hand to produce a more solid and more durable product. Given those conditions, each item might have slight variations, resulting in something that is like a unique edition per piece.

4. The Neo Pro

Although third-party styluses almost always end up being trashy substitutes for the Apple Pencil, Adonit seems to have brought out the big guns with the Neo Pro – a stylus that looks and functions as close to the Apple Pencil as humanely possible. It glides across your iPad’s surface with the kind of precision and grace you’d expect from Apple’s own hardware and even snaps to the side of your iPad to charge magnetically and wirelessly. The Neo Pro is the only stylus that charges wirelessly off the iPad. It also comes with native palm rejection and replaceable nibs, and it even boasts tilt sensitivity – a feature that was only reserved for the Apple Pencil and Logitech’s Crayon stylus.

5. Belkin’s Continuity Camera Accessory

Belkin’s Continuity Camera accessory sounds like a fantastic idea, one that Apple enthusiasts in you would be gearing to try!  From how it appears, the Belkin device – in the making – is an all-white circular peripheral that attaches to the iPhone’s back with MagSafe. I’m not sure of the material it’s made from but presume it will be soft silicone so it leaves no scratches on the back of the Mac when it’s mounted. When attached to the Mac at the ideal spot where the webcam features, the Continuity Camera automatically activates to allow the iPhone to be used as the webcam.

6. Something

This is the coolest way to get that super cool translucent rear without shelling out money for the Nothing Phone (1). The device outfitter pros have created a line-up of cool case covers dubbed “Something” for the major flagships on the market. The attractive skin will be available for devices including the iPhone Pro Max, Pixel 6 Pro, and the Samsung S22 Ultra. Depending on the response for these devices, support for even more handsets is inevitable. Dbrand plans to release a Nintendo Switch version too which will be interesting for mobile gamers.

7. CaseBand’s Apple Watch Case

I’m pretty sure there’s a sizeable group of people who like the Apple Watch for its functionality but not for its looks. For that select bunch, CaseBand’s Apple Watch Case lets you switch out your smartwatch’s Silicon Valley aesthetic for something much more premium. With a premium rose-gold and anodized black finish, the Switch is simply a metal case that covers your existing apple watch, giving it a visual overhaul, without compromising on the watch’s capabilities. Each case encloses your Apple Watch’s main hardware unit, exposing the screen on the front in a way that’s still easy to access, while also keeping the sensors and charging points on the rear of the watch uncovered.

8. The G4 charger

The G4 charger is a wonderful throwback accessory that reminds me of that Elago charger that turned the Apple Watch into the Macintosh. Its design, however, doesn’t seem to have aged the way the Macintosh has. Even by today’s standards, the iMac G4 is an incredibly eye-catching device that you’re sure to be amazed by. The charger condenses that beauty down into a small device that is equally good at drawing your attention to the iPhone that sits on it.

9. Elago W4 Apple Watch stand

Dubbed Elago W4 Apple Watch stand, the retro dock as I said, is designed to bring added functionality with nostalgic charm to the bedside table. It’s not as colorful as the original iMac G3; it comes in two aqua blue and aqua pink colors, which should offer a near retro feel you’d like as an iMac fan. Coming to the functionality, the W4 stand works will all Apple Watch Series (1,2,3,4,5, SE, and 6) and it is compatible with Apple Watch Nightstand Mode.

10. The Slim Dock

Designed to look as sleek as something Apple itself would release (it’s an art that Satechi has wonderfully perfected), the Slim Dock upgrades your 24″ M1 iMac with extra ports and even extended SSD storage. The Slim Dock comes with the same machined aluminum outer as the iMac itself and is available in the default silver as well the anodized blue to match your blue iMac. Rest it on your iMac’s base and it looks almost like a part of the machine. Once plugged in, it gives your sleek iMac the two things it lacks – a whole host of ports and expandable storage!
