Powermat claims that their charger beats the rest because it doesn’t rely on having metal to metal contact to work. Like the others do. That means that the Powermat can be placed anywhere you want it such as desks, workstations or tables. The posibilities are endless.

It can also handle high end gadgets that demand big power like laptops, TV’s and kitchen blenders. Look for the technology in the shops towards the end of this year. You’ll be able to buy the mat and a series of adapters and sleeves to enable existing devices.





Wireless outdoor speakerPost a comment

If you’re anything like me you’re probably spending all your summer evenings in the garden, eating barbecue with some friends.

It’s always nice to have a little background music and that’s what the next gadget is built for. Transmit your songs from your iPod or any other mp3 player to this wireless garden speaker. The distance between sender and receiver can reach up to 70 metres.

It is splash proof so you can put it close to a swimming pool (though not recommended for obvious reasons).

It features a left, right or mono switch which makes it perfect if you’re using two of these. If you want a cool stereo effect, you can position the players perfectly in your garden.

The battery lasts about 6 hours. This gadget works with any standard 3.5mm jack connection.

Available for $100.





Wireless SD Card

This 2 GB wireless SD card uploads photos automatically from your camera to whatever online photo service you like, whether that’s Snapfish, Picasa, Flickr or anything else. The card can also beam pictures to your home computer’s hard drive, which means you won’t have to connect your camera physically to a computer to transfer images. Eye-Fi can even upload your images from hotspots while you’re traveling, so you don’t have to wait to get back home to save and back-up your pictures. The photos you upload can also be geotagged — automatically marked with longitude and latitude data — so, later on, you can retrace your snap-happy steps, if you forgot to input location info in your digital files. On some photo services, you’ll be able to see your photos on a map according to their geotags. Millions of digital pictures are taken every day and 80% are never shared, but with Eye-Fi, you’ll have no excuse not to send photos home to Mom.
Price: $129.99
