L8-SmartLight-th

Do you sit at your computer constantly refreshing both your Twitter feed and Facebook page eagerly awaiting comments on your most recent hilarious update? Do you feel like the world is passing by while you do? If so, the L8 SmartLight can help. The little LED-filled square can alert you when you’ve got email, a new Facebook or Twitter message and tons more. Despite looking like a 90’s handheld game, L8 will do far more than make long car rides fly by. Have it alert you of the weather, use it as an alarm clock or, if you want to really go in-depth, program it to function as something else you need. Looks like we’re backing another Kickstarter project.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
