Tired of sand getting all over your towel at the beach? Tired of dirt getting all over your blanket while camping? This list can go on and on and now it also comes with a solution thanks to the Sand-Free MAT from CGear which was developed by the military. This MAT is the perfect companion for all outdoor adventures and acts as a barrier between you and the ground. Its dual layer weave makes it so things such as sand, dirt and dust will fall through the top but not filter back up from the bottom. The Sand-Free MAT features D-Rings around its perimeter allowing for a sturdy, more permanent placement if staking it to the ground is desired. When ready for use it is recommended that a towel or blanket still be used to lay upon for added comfort. While the MAT is ideal for uses like the beach, park or campsite, it should not be used on hard surfaces such as concrete. Read More

I don’t know about you, but I for one am glad the future is finally here (
minus the flying cars: Nevermind) and thus, behold the Magic Cube, from Celluon. This sleek little device can be used wirelessly or wired via USB and features two modes: Keyboard mode or Mouse mode. Wait, it gets better. This little device projects a layout for all your typing and mouse (mousing?) needs. Perfect for travel, typing, and well…showing off, it also works quite well if you’re keen on pretending you’re typing aboard a spaceship somewhere deep within the galaxy. I won’t judge you space cadet.
Here’s the essential information:
The Celluon Magic Cube is a compact, portable device that allows you to add a virtual keyboard and mouse to almost any Bluetooth-enabled device. It is compatible with the latest devices, including Windows XP/Vista/7, Windows Phone 7, iOS4 (iPhone3GS/4, iPad, iPad 2), and Android 2.2 or higher. While the real intent of this device is to be used wirelessly via Bluetooth, it can also connect via USB. There’s even a switch which allows you to easily switch from wireless connection to USB connection (USB cable included). The Magic Cube can be charged via the USB cable, and on a full charge you can enjoy over two hours of usage.
In Typing Mode the Magic Cube projects a full-sized perfectly operating laser keyboard that will work on any flat surface in front of it. An optical recognition mechanism enables you to type on the projected key images while real tapping sounds are generated, making typing texts or e-mails as easy as with an ordinary keyboard. In Mouse Mode you can use your finger as a mouse rather than typing when using with a laptop. Read More

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has completed its promising specification for Bluetooth 4.0, though we’ll have to wait until the end of the year to buy devices that use the new technology.
Announcing the completion of Bluetooth 4.0 at its all-hands meeting in Seattle on Tuesday, the Bluetooth SIG is touting the spec for its ability to work with low-energy devices, such as watches and health sensors. But Bluetooth 4.0 will also provide higher speeds for peripherals to communicate with mobile phones, computers, and other gadgets.
