The Olloclip is probably the most popular camera lens to turn your iPhone into something more camera-friendly. The iPad doesn’t get a lot of love in that department, but today Polaroid is showing off a new line of cases with snap-on camera lenses that work seamlessly with the iPad and iPad mini.
Parrot may be best known for its incredible iPad-compatible toy, the AR.Drone 2.0, but that didn’t stop the gadget maker from thinking outside the box to come up with a new and innovative way to care for houseplants. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) the company unveiled Flower Power.
This handy-dandy sensor acts as a translator so your plants can tell you what they need. Whether it’s more sun, less water, or a new supply of fertilizer, you’ll always know how to best care for your living greenery.
Once you’ve placed the Flower Power sensor into the plant’s soil, it will read the soil moister, fertilizer level, temperature, and sunlight. Based on the type of plant, you’ll receive alerts whenever something isn’t right. If you normally keep your plant on the porch, but the weather is starting to chill, you’ll receive a notification on your iPad that your plant is getting cold. If the soil has dried out too much, you’ll receive a notification that you need to water it. If your sunlight-loving greenery feels left in the dark, you’ll get an alert telling you to brighten up the place.

I am a longtime fan of Toddy Gear’s products, and I regularly use a set of Toddy Smart Cloths to keep dust, fingerprints, and smudges off of the screen of my iDevices.
Earlier this year, Toddy expanded beyond simple cloths, adding a new Wedge, which is a dual-sided wedge-shaped beanbag that acts as both a stand and a cleaning device.
The Toddy Wedge was originally designed to function with the iPhone, and Apple’s iPad was too heavy to be supported by its small size and weight. That’s not the case with the ultra light iPad mini, however, which works perfectly with the Wedge.
There has been a lot of news lately about Apple making an iOS-compatible watch. It is no surprise that other tech companies are trying to make their own, pre-existing, watches known to consumers before Apple gobbles up the market entirely. ConnecteDevice designed a watch that is both analog and digital. Their successful Kickstarter campaign doubled funding in July of 2012 and the company has finally publicly launched the Cookoo and it is available online today.
How do you watch movies on your iPad? Do you transfer your DVDs to digital files and store them in iCloud? Do you rent or buy them on iTunes? When you are traveling, how do you bring your media with you? Seagate wondered those same questions and came up with a solution that lets you take more than 500 movies on the road with you on a 1 TB drive that connects to your iPad with its own Wi-Fi network.
