Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2011

See that alarm dock for your iPhone 4? It does nothing at all. Just holds your iPhone 4 and gives it a place to call home while you sleep or do other things. Just sits there like… Well, like a lump of wood. It comes from designer Jonas Damon and is made from beautiful beach wood.

Your iPhone is going to act as your alarm clock either way right? Might as well give it a decent spot to sit in and class up your place. It won’t charge your device, won’t pump out awesome sound, but it does come with a free app to turn your iPhone into one of those clocks with the flipping numbers.

This Wow-Keys keyboard has to be one of the coolest keyboards that we have seen yet. It’s a normal QWERTY keyboard, but where the number pad would normally be, there’s an iPhone dock, letting you use your iPhone more like a computer. You can also dock your iPod touch there as well and it will charge either device.

The dock works with an app that will turn the screen of your iPhone or iPod touch into the number pad if you need it. This keyboard is compatible with both Mac and PCs and has a button for changing between keyboard and iPhone mode. This will come in very handy in place of an extra PC.

This is far from the first optical add-on for the iPhone, but the OWLE Bubo focuses on giving the smartphone’s video capture abilities a boost. The Bubo is a hand-held video rig made from aluminum. The handgrips help keep the iPhone steady while the weight, at just over a pound, helps with stability during pans. There are also four tripod mounts and access to the dock connector and headphone jack.

The 0.45x wide-angle/macro combination lens doubles the iPhone’s field of view and adds contrast and extra detail. The rig will accept any 3rd party lenses (37mm) and filters (49mm) and the macro lens allows for close shooting.

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2011

Here’s something that we don’t see everyday. This Avi Stylix iPod / iPhone docking station sports a built in 7-inch LCD capable of streaming Netflix. Other features include a Dock Connector port, twin two-watt speakers, USB port, SD card slot and a remote.

It will also stream Netflix, as mentioned, but just be aware that you’ll need an iPhone or iPod touch with a live internet connection. That’s because there is no WiFi module built into the device itself. Still, it’s a neat trick for a dock, especially at just $99.99. Not bad at all.
