Web Digging: Game of Phones - Make an Iron Throne For Your Mobile Phone

Via neatorama

Imgurian tumb1r has decided to create a mini iron throne for his mobile phone with styrofoam, weatherproofing foam tape, mini cocktail swords, and hot glue. It looks awesome, but one thing's for sure: we won't be surprised if the phone dies soon. Read more here via neatorama

Web Digging: Add a battery-saving, E Ink display to your phone for $79

Via engadget

One of the drawbacks inherent with our variety of smart devices is short battery life, but the folks behind the InkCase Plus think they have the solution for perhaps the most-used gadget in your arsenal: your phone. The InkCase Plus hits Kickstarter today, and like its name suggests, it's a folio case for your phone that packs an always-on E Ink display. If this sounds kinda familiar, that's because the company launched something similar last year for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S II. Now, however, it's available for the Galaxy S5 (or whatever other phone models get at least 500 votes from the pledging community), packs Bluetooth low-energy connectivity and it can act as a modular second screen, with access to apps and notifications. The campaign page promises 18 hours of reading time thanks to the energy-miserly nature of e-paper, and that you can transfer the likes of boarding passes and shopping lists to it too. Sounds pretty handy, yeah?

This type of kit hasn't set the world on fire before, though -- nor have phones with the tech baked in from the factory -- and because of its proprietary SDK, developers don't really have an incentive to make compatible apps unless the InkCase takes off like, say, the Pebble smartwatches did. But if you're still interested and have a spare $79, the Kickstarter page is but a click away. Read more here via engadget

Web Digging: Mega Hammock

Via gearhungry

We’ve seen big hammocks before, but the Mega Hammock puts them to shame without breaking a sweat. This three person hammock offers up a massive 8′ by 15′ lying surface, probably big enough for a few more and with a total weight rating of 1,000 pounds. Each unit is hand-crafted from colorful coated ripstop nylon by an FAA-certified parachute rigger for standing up to years of use. And if it doesn’t quite cut it size-wise, feel free to submit your specifications to HummingbirdHammocks for a quote. Read more here via gearhungry
