We’ve reached a point where the pocket-size device you use to communicate happens to run games far more advanced than the ones old gaming units did. And while that can’t be debated, it doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy a bit of nostalgia. Hyperkin is delivering a dose with the Smart Boy. The device, which is currently in development, will slip onto your iPhone and allow you to actually play those old Game Boy cartridges. So, while we’re aware your iPhone can run a billion versions of Tetris more stylish than the original, the Smart Boy will take you back to playing in the rear seat of your mom’s station wagon.

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.
