Like a horological version of a mullet, watchmaker Sinn has created something it calls the Dual Strap System allowing someone to wear both a traditional watch, and the Apple Watch, at the same time. It's business up front with the analogue timepiece, and a party in the back with all of the added smartwatch functionality.

Flickr user RGB900's Lego DSLR is far from the first bricked camera we've brought you. But damned if it isn't one of the most detailed.
Dropping your expensive camera is terrible. Looking like a giant tool while you're snapping photos is also awful. Photojojo's "Handy Dandy Hand Strap" will take care of both, snuggly securing your cam to your hand, all while looking ruggedly beautiful.
The original Lumaloop was an excellent, simple camera sling. The new Loop and LoopIt (for point-and-shoots) use a new sling connector - from the company who invented the one used on US Marine Corps rifles - to instantly attach and disconnect cameras.
SLR Camera straps haven't changed much over the last, oh, century or so, which is surprising considering how awkward most of them are. Then came the R-Strap, a $US44 strap that uses the tripod mount on the bottom of your camera instead of the rings on the sides, allowing for a comfortable over-the-shoulder sling paired with quick-draw action. Even better are these two how-tos, that show you how to make one yourself for just a few bucks worth of hardware (which Charlie from Wired had success with judging by his photo here). Check out the video below of an actual R-Strap in action Taxi Driver style for inspiration.
Boss: You know what the Wii needs? A sassy-injection. Our market research suggests that divas are the most overlooked demographic when it comes to gaming. I believe we can fill that void. So, I am proposing a sassy new direction for this company. I'm thinking a strap with jewels and sparkle! Heart shapes! We will corner the market on Wii sassitude. Ladies and gentleman, I give you WiiDiva!
You only have to take one look at this spent piece of used trash to know that nothing good can come out of her petrol eyes and twisted gesture. Kaoru Tomiishi is her name, and she has admitted that she killed her 6-year-old son with a mobile phone strap, probably the most inane and naff cheapo object of modern culture. She initially tried to cover it, but after the body was found thanks to the GPS inside the same mobile phone.
Surely, at least a few of you are sad that Nintendo never released the Wii in multiple colours—despite their announcement promises. Well good news! No, the Wii isn't coming in any new colours, but Nintendo has launched the Wiimote strap in almost any flavour you'd like—blue, green, pink and, uhh, white again. Available in Japan only for the time being, the safety harnesses will go for US$2.75 apiece or in a variety pack of four for about US$9. In other news, Nintendo makes a bajillion more dollars without even really trying.
On a slow news day, one company can always be relied on to bring out something so unutterably useless that I fall to my knees and give thanks to James T. Kirk and all the angels: Brando. Their phone strap-slash-stylus-slash-lightsaber-for people-of-extremely-restricted-growth costs five bucks and would redefine the word pointless if it didn't actually have a retractable point. Still, I can think of one person who might find it handy when he's on a post-coital cleanup. galleryPost('luminoustylus', 3, 'luminous stylus');
Wiimote Strapgate continues, with Nintendo hopefully putting the whole flimsy diabolical to rest once and for all. The resolution comes with the attachment of a clip that holds down the cord in a desired position. This would cause less sudden tension at the apex of the knot, whilst delivering peace of mind gaming for those not versed in the art of Wii-Samurai.
Rather than have a cellphone strap that looks cute and does nothing, this Tiger Paw cellphone strap actually lets you clean your screen—albeit a small cellphone screen. Just put the tiger (or sheep) paw on your finger and start wiping away. The strap clings conveniently to your phone, and also comes with a tail for some reason. This is the greatest cellphone strap ever.
