Over the past few years, Ossia has impressed us with demonstrations of its over-the-air power delivery system which promises to make charging cables and pads obsolete. But it’s always been just demos of prototypes, which feels like a constant tease of a future we want right now. For CES 2019, however, Ossia has worked with accessories maker Spigen to develop the first truly wireless charging case for smartphones, and given us a more solid timeline of when the company’s wireless power tech will be available to everyone.

So you just bought an iPhone X. It's fast, gorgeous, and everything you could ask for in an absurdly priced consumer device. There's just one problem. As good as it looks, it's way too precious for life without some kind of protection. You're going to need a case, but what kind should you get? Plastic is for peasants and leather is for murderers, so what is a responsible iPhone X owner supposed to do?

If you're in the market for a Google Pixel 2 when it comes out on October 31, you're probably in the market for a case too. The pair go together like hand in glove and, just like gloves, there are plenty of options to wrap around your phone to keep it safe. Here are a few of the cases coming out soon for the Pixel 2.

In 2012, when everyone assumed that no one wanted a smartwatch, the original Pebble became the poster-child for the crowdfunding site Kickstarter when it raised just over $US10 million from excited backers. Five years later, Pebble is no more, its intellectual assets are now owned by Fitbit, and the company's CEO is returning to Kickstarter with a new product that promises to protect and charge your pricey AirPods headphones.

When you're storming into battle brandishing a Bat'leth, Daqtagh, Mek'leth and other traditional Klingon weapons, you're going to need an easy way to carry all those armaments -- plus maybe a few snacks. This lovely messenger bag might not be part of the official Klingon uniform, but who says a warrior can't also be organised?

If you're not careful, photography can become a black hole of never-ending accessories and camera gear that you can never escape. You don't always need to bring along an entire studio's worth of gear to get a great shot, and Betabrand is making it even easier to travel light with a new camera bag featuring a reflector built right in.

A backpack is a great way to carry a bunch of stuff while keeping your arms free. That's why they can be a great photography accessory. The fact that it's always out of reach on your back is annoying, though. This is surely why Wolffepack has created a photography-focused pack that you can access without having to remove it.

When you think of the daily abuse that aeroplane seats have to endure, it's a minor miracle they aren't torn to shreds after just a week of air travel. The fabrics used for the upholstery must be just short of indestructible, so it makes sense to eventually recycle those materials into bags and packs that can easily survive your daily commute.
