The week in iOS accessories: Wrapping up CES

Our third and final roundup of CES-discovered accessories for your iOS gear

The Week in iOS Accessories

It's time for our third (and final) roundup of CES-discovered accessories for your iOS gear. This one includes new ways to charge your iOS devices, wirelessly play your music from them, or even adapt them into battle tanks.

Adonit

The $90 Jot Touch is a pressure stylus with Bluetooth connectivity to enable precision in the creation of art, calligraphy, or other fine-brush-work activity on your iPad. Pre-orders are available now, but there's no word on when the product itself will be available.

ClamCase

The new $169 ClamCase Pro bills itself as the world's thinnest Bluetooth-enabled keyboard case for your iPad. It works equally well as a laptop keyboard, a tablet stand, or simply as a case for protecting your tablet.

Digital Innovations

This company claims that when you connect your iPad to your computer's USB port via the ChargeDr USB Charge Booster, the iPad will charge four times as quickly as it would using a normal connection, and an iPhone twice as fast. There is no word, however, on pricing or availability.

Kensington

The $60 app-enabled Proximo Starter KIt lets you attach an electronic fob to your most-valued possessions, and then use your iPhone to track them if they go missing. If you buy the starter kit, you can later buy additional fobs to track up to five items at one time.

Peavey Electronics

This audio company has unveiled its WFS 3.70 Wireless Speakers, which will stream music wirelessly from any iOS device (or Mac) using Apple's AirPlay technology. Peavey hasn't yet offered word on pricing or availability.

Phu

You want these iPhone battle tank chargers, don't you? We get it. But sorry. The designs appear to be concepts worked out by Singaphore-based Phu--we've looked around the web for pricing and availability and found nothing. But we're keeping our fingers crossed.

USBFever

The $40 12X Telescope with Hard Case for iPad Mini offers everything in the name: a telescope that mounts to your iPad mini via a hard case. It magnifies far-off objects up to 12 times what you'd otherwise see. Also new from USBFever is the 3D Telescope for iPhone 4 and later.

XFlex

Here's a Kickstarter project that has met its goals and is going into production: The XFlex Tablet and iPad Stand has a weighted base and a gooseneck arm, letting you adjust your tablet in whichever height, angle, and orientation gives you the best view. The base is supposedly heavy and wide enough to use even on soft surfaces--such as on your bed for evening reading.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Sharp PN-40TC1 Huddle Board

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic

I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
