Link, the Wireless Wearable Hardrive

info4The Link is a small, solid state, wireless hard drive that you wear on your wrist. It uses a multitude of wireless technologies to connect to your computer or mobile device, such as bluetooth, wifi, wifi direct, and even NFC. The best part is that it will always default to the fastest available technology. It even charges wirelessly.

The Link’s battery life is another great selling point. It has two weeks of standby time, and it can stream hd video for 12 hours on one charge. Yes, you read that correctly, 12 hours. It should last longer than the device you are viewing the video on. 20 devices can be connected to the Link at once, and it can stream data to up to seven at a time. It is compatible with Android and iOS (with the use of the Link app), Mac, PC, and Linux. It can have up to 1TB of storage, is UV resistant, water resistant, and shock proof.

The Link has 38 days left on its Indiegogo campaign, but the project will still be funded even if it doesn’t make the goal. You can preorder it through the campaign for $199, $279, $449, and $799 for the 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB models respectively. If you want more information about the Link, check out their website

Zolt, the World’s Smallest Laptop Charger

Zolt_scene2finalThe Zolt Laptop Charger Plus is not your average laptop charger. First, it is the size of a roll of quarters and only weighs three ounces; second, it has three integrated USB ports so that you can charge any mobile device as well. The Zolt uses a proprietary, high voltage, USB based connector that has multiple interchangeable ends so you can use it with most laptops. The Zolt will also soon support Apple MacBooks, with a special adapter sold separately.

The Zolt charger uses special technology called ERC (Efficient Resonant Control) that analyzes the devices that you plug in to, and puts out the exact charge needed by that device. The three USB slots on the Zolt Laptop Charger Plus can each be used to charge a mobile device, however only the top port is powerful enough to charge a laptop. A special “key” in the end of the included laptop cable, keeps the user from plugging it into the wrong port.

The Zolt Laptop Charger Plus is available for pre-order now at a special price of $79.99. It will cost $99.99 when it comes to market later this year. If you would like more information, you can check out the website at

Flic is a Shortcut Button for Your Life

20141116125901-IntroducingFlicPranav Kosuri describes Flic as an “easy button that actually does something.” And he could not be more right. The Flic is a small bluetooth enabled button that connects to your phone and enables you to set up shortcuts for actions you commonly use. Each Flic can have three actions assigned to it through its iOS and Android app, a press, double press, and long press. You can control Spotify, call home, send a text message to a loved one, or get directions to your next calendar appointment; all with a single press of a button. The Flic is powered by a coin cell battery which will last 60,000 clicks, so if you use Flic 10 times a day it will last 16 years. Flic ships with a reusable, micro suction adhesive backing allowing you to stick it practically anywhere. Along with the adhesive, there are also accessories available so you can clip Flic to your clothes or a bag and take it anywhere you go.

Flic’s Indiegogo campaign was a huge success. They raised over 800% of their asking amount. The campaign is over now and the backers should be receiving their Flics by April. After the backer’s orders have been filled Flic will be available on their website and at their partnered retailers. If you want some more information about Flic, check out their website at
