We've seen plenty of multi-functional iPhone cases over the past few years, but this one may be the most talented and clever yet.
The Rechargeable iPhone Speaker Amplifier Case (catchy name, huh?) features a rechargeable battery that could well double the life of your mobile, a subwoofer that amplifies the sound by about ten times and it's got a stand on the back to take good photos, or to put to good use when you're watching a video. Oh yeah, it protects you phone too, always nice to have that from a case.
To say it's got so much going for it the case is surprisingly slim AND cheap at just over $40 from Distinctive Style.

We like the clean lines and smart mechanism of the ODOC dock (not OCD, which is what we kept calling it aound the office) plus the fact that because the dock is weighted you can easily remove said iPhone with one hand.
What we don't like is that it's currently only in development as a project on Kickstarter and unless $70,000 is pledged by Saturday Jun 9, the dock will never be mass produced. So far they've raised a little over 9K.
IF you're curious, here's the link.
We spend so much of our working days sat down that many health professionals are now making lots of (unsurprising) links between our sedentary lifestyles and our health.
We've come across a range of office gym equipment in the past, like treadmills with a space for your laptop, or a cross trainer with an iPad stand, however none of them are really going to stop you look VERY stupid beside your desk or cost a reasonable amount.
So here's The Jopple, which might be a much more realistic option (we can't guarantee you won't still look a bit silly on it though!).
This bright little chair aims to get you using a few extra muscles while you work, so use your stomach and core to stop you from wobbling around and then when you're taking a quick break you can do crunches or move the mat onto the floor for a range of different stretches.
However, the Jopple would only be a success if more than one person in the office had one and if your boss was super understanding about it all too! We wouldn't want you getting fired for doing a few lunges now would we.

In honor of Mother's Day, Popgadget is giving away a swanky new flagship Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone - all courtesy of the folks at Microsoft.
Whether she's in the 'family room' or the 'boardroom,' Mom is the ultimate CEO and deserves some appreciation... and simplification. Windows Phone is the perfect time-saving tool to help do-it-all moms complete life's little (or even not so little) tasks in a way that's simply faster and easier. There is a WP phone perfectly tailored for every mom - whether she's budget conscious or camera happy. Mom can even choose the color that best fits her personality, like the stand-out cyan blue that our Nokia giveaway phone comes in.
Read more after the break about what WP can do for Mom and for contest details.
The Underscore VibrAcoustic Bath is the ULTIMATE in bathing experiences and we must have it RIGHT NOW. We're used to bath tubs that light up, or silly floating lights, but this clever piece of technology (yes a bath can be technology) lights up, plays your favourite music and has vibrating sections underneath to massage you as you soak.
There's no official price for the new bath, but according to The Next Web it'll set you back around $5000. Ouch.

Both, as it turns out. The Kensington Virtuoso Signature is a Stylus and Pen, making it a convenient 2-in-1 solution. Use it with your iPad and then, with just a single twist, transform the Stylus into a ballpoint pen. At only $29.99 we're thinking it would make a great Mother's Day gift.
It comes with a clip but we don't encourage you to be one of those people wearing a pocket protector.
We love Photo Jo Jo for quirky photography and mobile accessories, but this new iPhone Shutter Grip contraption is particularly clever. It's tiny and all it really does is add a grip and shutter button to your phone, but that makes it so much easier to take good photos.
Available from Photo Jo Jo for $40.

Earth Day is coming up - what are you getting her?
We're doing our part with recylcing, with three big bins, two of which live outside. But what if you live in a teeny apartment and don't have the luxury of all that room? Simplehuman has it covered with their clever recycling solutions, like this trash can with separate bins for dividing your recyclables. Our choice - the simplehuman steel bar step can- is streamlined, and follows the aesthetic of a gourmet kitchen, with a reinforced steel bar and double-hinge pedal mount for easy, quiet use. It comes with 3 buckets (2 small buckets for recycling or remove them to use the large single bucket for trash).
This handsome devil has a 14.5 gallon capacity for $249.99, but check out all the different choices to find your perfect trash can. Mother Earth would be pleased.
Despite the fact they make us feel a little ill sometimes, 3D films and TV shows aren't going anywhere anytime soon. So, we need to find new ways to wear the special viewing glasses that don't feel uncomfortable or make us look too much like aliens.
The new Stix concept from designers Lucy Jung and Daejin Ahn could be the perfect solution for those who already wear glasses and don't like having to have TWO pairs on. That's just silly, right?! They're a set of stickers that you simply attach to your current eyewear, which instantly transforms them into 3D glasses. How clever!
Not only is it much easier to apply these stickers (which apparently don't leave any greasy marks), but they'll mean less waste in the long run and less health risks too, after all you don't know who's had those glasses on before you!
