Super Tiny Multimedia Keyboard

Hmm. Any guesses to how useful this is? As Unplggd mentioned, it sort of looks like a netbook’s keyboard, which makes me wonder if you traveled often, wouldn’t you have a netbook or laptop with a integrated keyboard? Despite my reservations, it is indeed smaller than a traditional keyboard and would be easier to cart around for use with whatever device you choose.

Super Tiny Multimedia Keyboard is 56 keys and 12 hotkeys keyboard. It is tiny, slim, portable and functional that you do not have to worry about bringing those traditonal, big and heavy keyboard when you are travelling. USB Retractable Cable

Available in either black or white
Dimensions: 170 x 80 x 15mm (approx.)
Weight: 150g

The Fuji Instax Instant Camera

Saw this over at oneplusinfinity, where Tim gave it a thumbs up with the only negative being the price of the film. I agree. Yikes.

You see, the Instax is a bit different than its predecessors. It prints credit card-sized photos on bold Fuji film, but retains a classic instant film look that everyone loves. Plus, you’ve got more control when you’re shooting: four exposure settings for indoor/outdoor shooting, a built-in flash, and a sweeping wide angle. No USB cables, no memory cards, and no computer. Just a few basic chemical reactions that develop in the palm of your hand. Best of all, Fuji continues to make new cameras and new film, so you won’t need to go hunting for your instant film fix.

Camera: $90.00
Camera and Film: $105.00
Film Twin-Pack (20 exposures): $20.00
Three Film Twin-Pack: $55.00

Endless Rain Record

After moving from Texas to Los Angeles, the one thing that I really miss (except for my friends and family, of course) is the torrential downpours we would get in the summer. This record from Kyouei Design creates and endless loop of rain sounds–and might just make me feel less homesick.

iPhone Decals

Not to overdo iPhone talk, but these decals are pretty funny.

(Note: Retailer doesn’t have a direct link, so you’ll have to enter ‘iPhone’ into their search to find the decals. Just thought I would give a heads up so that we don’t get a bunch of emails saying the link doesn’t work.)

Chilewich iPhone 3GS/3G Case

This is an unlikely collaboration (in my opinion): a Chilewich iPhone cover…I can’t help but think it’s sort of a stretch to have this particular textile on an iPhone, but I guess it is a durable and tactile surface, so it kind of makes sense.

Impact resistant polycarbonate iPhone´┐Ż covers are the result of a unique collaboration between Sandy Chilewich and Griffin Technology. Chilewich’s signature mini basketweave vinyl textile is adhered to the two piece Griffin EasyDock´┐Ż design. These covers provide access to all controls and ports, and allow quick docking without removing the case.

Size: 4.75h x 2.75w x .5″d

Music Balloon

It really makes my day when something currently only available on an undecipherable Japanese site suddenly shows up on a US or UK site. It’s a wonderful little thing that makes the world seem entirely less complicated. So, shall I present to you the Music Balloon? Some of you might have seen this on the other blogs a while back, but now (if you don’t read Japanese) you can buy it from a UK shop.

It’s not really a balloon, it’s a plug in speaker for your iPod / MP3 player.
Simply plug in and play.
This sponge foam speaker reminds us of 80’s TV presenter microphones and will happily sit on a desk or hanging out of a pocket while you play your tunes or check the latest podcasts.
Now you can cycle without headphones, irritate people on the bus and tube and share new music with friends without untangling headphone wires.

Kindle: Amazon’s 6″ Wireless Reading Device

So, the new Kindle looks pretty sleek. I’m debating on whether or not the convenience would outweigh any loyalty I have to actual paper pages. It would be nice to carry a slim device instead of the 4 to 5 books I take with me when I travel, but then again, maybe I’m not ready to shell out $350 for an electronic gadget. Hmm…

Slim: Just over 1/3 of an inch, as thin as most magazines

Lightweight: At 10.2 ounces, lighter than a typical paperback

Wireless: 3G wireless lets you download books right from your Kindle, anytime, anywhere; no monthly fees, service plans, or hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots

Books in Under 60 Seconds: Get books delivered in less than 60 seconds; no PC required

Improved Display: Reads like real paper; now boasts 16 shades of gray for clear text and even crisper images

Longer Battery Life: 25% longer battery life; read for days without recharging
