A case worthy for the iPhone X

nomad_iphonex_case_1

It’s a challenge, cladding something as beautiful as the iPhone X with a case. Not many people would, because there’s a beauty to the Apple flagship that a case will only destroy, but I highly recommend that you do (if you’re one of the millions waiting in queue for your handset), because let’s remember the phone is made primarily of glass, which if a phone is dropped on its corners, will shatter without warning, and of Aluminum which scratches easier than Apple would like you to believe. If you want your $1000 phone to continue staying beautiful, a case is the only way to go, and what’s better than a clear case?

Nomad’s Clear Folio case for the iPhone X is every bit as premium and amazing as the smartphone itself. The case itself is clear, showing off your iPhone in pretty much all its glory, while protecting it from accidental, painful breaks. It also comes with a folio flap made of the finest leather from Horween Leather Co., one of America’s oldest leather tanneries still operational to date. The vegetable tanned leather flap comes with slots that can hold up to 6 cards and cash, making your iPhone X even more priceless than it already is! Plus, the case is as limited edition (if not infinitely more) than the iPhone X. Only 20 cases remain in stock, so you better grab yours soon!

Literally plays the hottest tracks

Taking terms like “Playing with fire” and “Drop it like it’s hot” a little to literally (or should I say lit-erally), the Fireside Audiobox turns audio into a pyrotechnic performance, by channeling the sound through a tube of propane gas.

Using an apparatus developed in 1905 by Heinrich Rubens, the Fireside Audiobox is a wireless speaker with a certain retro allure that completely gets overshadowed once you light the tube on the speaker’s upper end, resulting in a dance of flames! Audio frequencies play on the intensity of the flames, causing them to jump along with the music, making for a speaker that is bound to be the centerpiece at any and every house-party. Perfect for the weather we’ll soon be experiencing, and with the festive season coming up, the Fireside Audiobox could add wireless Bluetooth speaker, a fireplace, and an unignorable charm to your living room! Maybe avoid trying to roast snacks over this fire though.!

A BB-8 Droid for your home

Carl is your trusty pair of eyes, ears, and even nose when you’re away from home, or even when you’re inside home. Constantly keeping an eye out for anything that may go wrong, from a burglary attempt to even a toaster being left on for too long, Carl can sense everything and can alert you in your home, or even remotely if there’s even the slightest problem.

The design for Carl comes from an age-old discussion about whether robots should look like humans, or should have their own visual identity that one superimposes human characters on (in short, a C3PO or an R2D2/BB-8). Carl’s design comes from pure function, and the designers opt for a more efficient wheel layout than legs. It communicates with its users via an app, or the display on top that also works as a massive on/off switch, revealing the cameras along the sides when the display raises upwards in the power on mode. The hole running through the center acts as an air intake where sensors can notice spikes in chemicals, knowing if there’s something burning or if there’s a gas leak. If there ever is such a scenario, Carl rushes to the point of emergency and provides a live video stream of the area with its notification, alerting you of anomalies. Pat Carl’s head and the display descends, putting the robot into its hibernate mode, so it isn’t spying on your house when you don’t want or need it to!

The Minimalism-meets-materialism Wallet

UPDATE: less than 48 hours left, grab yours now!

With almost a decade since its inception in 2009, Kickstarter is beginning to complete a full circle, and in turn letting campaigners take their small fledgling ventures and turn them into large companies and brands. Pebble, Oculus, Bragi, these are just some garage projects that turned into Silicon Valley success stories and household names in just a span of a few years. We’ve charted the success of Dango too, that has gone from making really admirable money clips and multi-tools to making some of the most desirable EDC (every day carry) known to man.

Dango’s tryst with EDC started off with the Loop Hook that went on to set the footprint for the Dapper and the Tactical Wallets, two wallets that embodied the alpha-spirit in the concrete jungle. Their latest invention builds on the idea, and adds the one crucial element to the EDC that converts it from a survival kit to a creation kit. The Dango P01 Pioneer Bifold Wallet adds a specially designed pen to the wallet, along with a notepad to your everyday carry, making it a carrying case for commerce, contraptions, as well as creativity.

At the heart of the Pioneer Bifold Wallet still lies the MT02 multi-tool (available separately), which influenced a lot of the design details surrounding Dango’s past wallets. The Pioneer lives up to that standard and some more, with its signature silicone band holding the bifold Italian Leather wallet together. Within the wallet lies space for cards as well as banknotes. The wallet also integrates the pen into the wallet’s hinge, giving it its structure. The custom pen, machined from 6061 space-grade aluminum fits a Schmidt pressurized ink refill, and comes with silicone ring grips for a comfortable writing experience and slots on the back for a woven lanyard. The pen slides right into the wallet, complemented by a notebook that fits into the footprint of the wallet itself. Made with supple Italian Leather, the Pioneer features RFID Blocking, protecting your cards from being used unless you want them to. Paired with the MT02 multi-tool, Dango’s Pioneer becomes a supreme concoction of functionality, fashion, creative-fervor, and everything in between. It holds everything from your currency, tactical multi-tools, to your ideas… and looks absolutely stylish while doing all of it. What more could a man want!?
