RAREFORM

RAREFORM BACKPACKS

Don’t overlook the possibilities of what an already used billboard that’s headed for the trash can become. At least not when it ends up in the hands of Alec Avedissian and his brainchild Rareform.

Repurposing billboards to create one of a kind products ranging from iPad sleeves to backpacks to surfboard bags, the 3-year old California-based company has no issues pulling double duty. Not only is the collection full of quality bags and accessories that provide plenty and space and noteworthy protection to your everyday necessities, but each one reduces Earth’s waste as well.

Check out the full collection from Rareform HERE.

KICKFLIP_MAIN

No one can solve those minor yet annoying tech-related problems quite like the people behind Bluelounge. From corralling messy wires to functional charging solutions for every device you own, they tackle it all. And it’s always in the simplest way possible–something we love about them. So when looking to make our workspace more comfortable, we were waiting to see what the design studio had in store.

Giving laptops a little extra boost, the Bluelounge Kickflip elevates your MacBook into an ergonomic position making it easier to work. But there’s no bulk involved. The Kickflip is thin and inconspicuous, attaching to your computer through a high-tech, German engineered gel adhesive that forms a strong bond with your laptop to hold firm, yet can be removed and used again without leaving behind residue.

Headphones are no longer just headphones anymore thanks to the foursome behind Flips Audio.

Revolutionizing the way you can listen to music and the means by which you do so, the brand’s headphones that were a year and a half in the making are the first that posses the ability to turn into HD speakers through the flip of an ear piece. Compact enough to take on the go and powerful enough to supply high quality sound, the device’s duality won’t only good for you, but your friends as well…granted your music library isn’t lacking.

SUPER_M_MAIN

Building on the success of its pocket-sized M speaker, Nude Audio is looking to take the popular model to the next stage.

Setting forth a Kickstarter campaign for the Super-M today, the new addition still keeps its compact size, yet comes equipped with an even more powerful sound. Four full-range, high-performance neodymium drivers are tightly packed on both sides of the Super-M, with each pair complemented by a passive radiator, meaning it offers six drivers in total.

Its new features don’t only increase the 360-degree sound quality, though. A state-of-the-art Bluetooth 4.0 chipset ensures the best signal and efficient battery use that can last for up to eight hours. And like its predecessors, the Super-M is sand-proof, water-proof, and extremely durable.
