Just like a camera, the best tripod is the one you have with you. There’s no point in spending hundreds of dollars on a carbon fibre set of sticks if they’re inconvenient to carry. The tiny Tiltpod Mobile is designed to attach to your keys, ensuring it’s always close at hand — or at least somewhere in your pocket.
Yes, yes, keychains have a primary function: keeping you from losing your keys. We’ve seen them be so much more over the years, but The Clip from Little Bonsai might just be the most useful keychain we’ve ever seen.
Key ring hooks generally come in two flavours – the kind you spent an age trying to find to suit your decor, or the kind that you (or your kids) made in woodwork class that you only put up because you don’t have a better alternative. Hookeychain does away with the need for either, stylishly attaching to your fridge using a powerful magnet.
It’s a simple fact of life that the times you most need a bottle opener are the same times you don’t have one nearby. The Aussie guys behind the incredibly sexy Leg Opener we told you about last year have just solved that dilemma with the Leg Opener keyring.
It may not offer the same sensual shape as the fridge magnet version, but the Leg Opener keyring does fold down to take up much less space. Made with a brushed stainless steel case and an anodised aluminium lower leg, the keyring may not be revolutionary, but is certainly one of the most stylish bottle-opening keyrings we’ve ever seen.
It is also $10 cheaper than the fridge magnet version, costing $20 plus $3 shipping.
Maybe it’s just me, but one of the most useful gadgets anybody can ever have is a bottle opener on a keyring. How many times have you been at a party and needed a bottle opener? The Screwpop takes that idea and adds both a Philips head and flat screwdriver, a 1/4-inch hex nut driver and a bottle opener, making it quite possibly the ultimate keyring companion.
Can anyone – anyone – please explain to me the appeal of having a cheap mono speaker attached to your keyring? Aside from the fact that this actually promotes kids to ignore gadget etiquette, considering the speaker is a tiny 2.5cm cube that incorporates a 3.5mm headphone jack and a rechargeable battery (and a USB port to charge it), the sound quality is sure to be something akin to a wailing banshee, and not just when you’re listening to 2DayFM. Not only that, but who wants a one-inch cube bulging from their pants pocket? For the $30 price tag, you could be well on your way to a decent set of portable stereo speakers.
