The opening of the Kickstarter video for ORA pretty aptly describes how we feel about our iPads. They’re fantastic for doing a lot of things, but the sound really sucks. There are a lot of options on the market to get better sound out of the little tablet that could, but they’re either huge or they don’t look all that nice. The ORA breaks that mold and lives up to its claim that it’s the ultimate sound system for the iPad. How does it do it? By packing eight speakers into the case that you snap your iPad (2 or 3 only at this point) into. That gets you up to five times the loudness of the existing sound without having to worry about extra cables or bluetooth/wifi connections. The battery that powers the ORA has up to 10hrs of life and acts as a passthrough for your iPad itself so you only have to plug in one cable to charge both. Sure, it makes the form factor a little bit bigger, but the sound is worth it.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
