USB93 - Unbreakable Cable
How many times have your usb cables tangled, frayed, and been rendered useless? Probably too many to count. It seems like I should have plenty of cables by now -- they give you one with every device, not to mention the ones I’ve bought on my own, or the ones that come with accessories, etc. So why am I always struggling to find one, let alone one that works reliably? It’s because in the past these cables have been an afterthought, a cheap way to get power from your outlet to the real show stopper, your phone. There have been other good cables in the past where people specifically set out to create a quality cable, but they all suffered from their own issues. If the cables were too rigid they had to sacrifice comfort and useability and could be susceptible to breaking. Too much give and they would be susceptible to that all familiar tearing. The USB93 uses what’s actually a very simple solution to utilize the benefits of both cables without any of the downsides. The braided nylon cable is tough and tangle free, and the adjustable socket joint means that you can orient your cable any way that you need without risking the wear and tear associated with that on regular cables. The Indie Go Go is already well past being funded, but it’s not too late to jump in and get in on the action.

Ghostek soDrop 2 Bluetooth Headphones
What do we look for in Bluetooth headphones? Well obviously they have to have good sound quality. A lot of Bluetooth headphones skimp out on the bass either to cut corners or to save on battery life. That said, they have to have exceptional battery life. If we’re going to be taking these headphones with us on the go, they have to last all day. And it naturally follows that if they can last all day, well they have to be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time too. And for all of this we’d rather not have to pay an arm and a leg. Some headphones are completely unexceptional in all of those areas but are still outrageously priced. Sound quality, battery life, comfort, well priced. Those are the big ones and the Ghostek soDrop 2 Bluetooth headphones ticks all of those boxes. The sound quality is great, with deep bass, the battery can deliver 14 hours of music playback, the soft leather ear cups are comfortable and smooth, and it’s priced well below similar products of similar grade quality.

POWERUP 3.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane
Everyone has their own perfect paper airplane design, but now you can power those up with the POWERUP 3.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane engine. It can attach to almost any paper airplane design, and it’s controlled from your smartphone. Conceptually it’s clearly pretty simple, but the crash proof design and reliable Bluetooth capabilities, alone with the designs and extras included in the kit, makes this a fun gadget worth picking up. It’s fun for all ages. The product does rely on relatively straightforward aerodynamics. There are no stabilizers or horizontal props that we’re used to seeing in drones these days, so if your paper airplane folding skills aren’t the best, or if the weather isn’t cooperating, it might throw a wrench into the works, but when conditions are great it’s tons of fun. And right now you can get a good deal for it on amazon for under $50.
