Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on June 2nd, 2011

The latest iPad keyboard to hit the scene is the Crux Loaded, which is the world’s first clamshell-keyboard case that features both a remote-Bluetooth trackpad and an additional-external battery for your iPad. The remote trackpad allows you to scroll pages, re-size your pictures, play games, and more without having to touch your iPad’s screen.

The Crux Loaded can also be used to access another PC using a remote-desktop program such as LogMeIn Ignition, Jump Desktop, or Splashtop. That extra-external battery will extend your iPad’s battery life for around 7.5 hours between charges. The Crux Loaded is $249.

3D Motorola “Ming” clamshell

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on April 27th, 2010

Motorola’s 3D “Ming” clamshell is 3D capable. We know that because of a patent that appeared a few weeks ago, showing a clamshell that displays 2D content on each screen, but when closed the two screens together turn 3D.

We can’t be completely sure that this is the exact same phone as the one in the patent, but word on the street says it is. If Motorola is using the same parallax barrier technology that Nintendo’s said to be using in its 3DS handheld, could Moto be focusing more on games?

Zipit electric clamshell package openerAny gadget lover knows the frustration of trying to extract a new gadget or toy from it’s clamshell packaging.

The ZIPIt simply slices through the demon package like butter. The device runs on 3 AA batteries. Just remove the protective cover, and slide your package into the end of the cutter. A few seconds later, your package will be open and all of your fingers will be intact.

Clamshell Mouse concept is no Arc Mouse

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2008

Clamshell Mouse concept is no Arc MouseWe’ve seen the Arc Mouse and until now it’s been one of a kind. Check out this design by Shaun haugh. This computer mouse is based on the Arc’s design, but manages to be different at the same time, in the final shape as well as finish.

This clamshell mouse has a steep arc which would make gripping it either harder or easier, I’m not sure which. The mouse is made of a silica gel like soft material and has metal supports for positioning, works on AA batteries with two steel buttons that lock and unlock the support rods.

Sony declares death to clamshell packaging

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008


We’ve all had our encounters with clamshell packaging, so it’s nice to hear about manufacturers that abandon the practice. Sony did just that this week, even though this video is pretty lame. Sony is just one of several big name companies that have pledged an end to this wasteful, destructive packaging.

As we reported last month, Amazon took a stand of their own. Other companies are getting on board too, like Microsoft and Best Buy. Once they start saving money on packaging, maybe Sony can make a better video, or give their workers a raise, but in reality it will likely go straight into the hands of the guys at the top. Then they can feel all good about themselves when they too ask for a bailout. To help the little guy of course.

China produces knock off flip iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 27th, 2008

China produces knock off flip iPhoneWe’ve seen our share of knock-offs coming out of China, but this one is downright funny. They’ve taken the iPhone and turned it into a clamshell style phone. Funny thing is, it resembles a MacBook more then an actual iPhone.

It is attractive with the brushed aluminum casing and the iPhone look inside, but I’m guessing that performance isn’t up to par. Surprisingly, the camera is 3-megapixels, more than on most mid to low-end phones. It also sports a 2.6-inch display with a resolution of 240 x 320. It’s pretty small at 105 x 53 x 17mm and about 110 grams. One giveaway that this is a crap-gadget are the LED lights under the apple. I guess that’s the best they could do.
