Every once in awhile a product comes out that changes the game on a concept everyone thought was pretty well set in stone. This stand from UBOH takes all preconceived ideas of a phone a tablet stand and tosses them out the window. While similar products rely on simple folding actions and locking mechanisms, the UBOH 5-in-1 Pocket-Sized Phone and Tablet Stand uses microsuction and magnets to keep your phone in place. You can stick it against a mirror or refrigerator or the dashboard of your car, and the microsuction, although it sticks like an adhesive, is completely reusable and leaves behind no residue. The product is also washable, and can be configured to act as a tripod for a family photo with everyone in it, or to get that perfect selfie. It’s available now for preorder from IndieGoGo, and that might be the best way to get your hands on this unique stand before everyone else, and at an early bird price point, just $24 if you’re fast enough to snag one of the currently 150 available “super early bird” stands.

GuardBot Surveillance Robot
Although this product is still in early stages, the Guardbot Surveillance Robot gives users a glimpse at what the future world of mobile surveillance might look like. This robot is capable of traversing any terrain, whether its the rugged mountains, water, the countryside, or any urban or city environment. Sizes range from 5 inches to 7 feet in diameter and a motorized pendulum can move the unit forward and back all while allowing a full 360 degree turning radius. The Guardbot is controlled via either satellites or remote control and packs a whopping 25 hour run capacity per charge. Two cameras, microphones and a GPS make this a major step for remote surveillance. We expect to see this robot popping up in military testing videos and news stories in the near future.
GoPro HERO (2018)
GoPro has just released their latest models and there is a ton that we love. First off, the price point. At $199, this is an attractive offer for people who were balking at $300+ for older models and saying 'my phones camera is fine.' The Hero shoots HD video at 1440p and 1080p at 60 frames per second, can take stills up to 10-megapixels and has added an electronic video stabilization system to keep quality maximized even during the most extreme circumstances. This model includes a 2-inch touch display, voice controls, waterproofing to 10 meters and backwards compatibility with all mounting hardware and accessories. If you're looking to upgrade your existing GoPro or need something new to film your adventures, the Hero ticks all the boxes.
