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.

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 discovering new Etsy sellers, especially those that make cool products for our gadgets! Our favourite this week has to be the NapPage cases, a range of clever and cute decoupage phone cases available for the iPhone, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS AND the Blackberry.
Although we sometimes shy away from the super girly designs, we love the rose-themed case above, and it's a great one if you're looking to brighten up for Spring!
Available from Etsy for $19.99.

There are a lot of great iPad cases around at the moment, but we love the Cloak cover as it acts as a stand at all different levels and keeps your iPad safe too. As it's featured on Quirky it obviously looks lovely and the sleek design with its bright pop of colour makes us all dreamy!
Unfortunately the Cloak case is only for the first generation iPad, so if you're lucky enough to have an iPad 2, or even a THIRD GENERATION device (go you) then you'll have to look elsewhere. Still, it's a pretty unique design and we think the bright colour is ideal for the summer months!
Available from Quirky for $29.99.
We usually like our phone cases to be as slick, portable and stylish as possible, but the iPhone Mug Case is none of those things.
It's a case that's also a mug. Well kind of. It's got a huge handle, which makes it easy to grab and acts as a make-shift stand too, but you won't be able to store your coffee in it properly unfortunately.
Available from iWowcase for $16.66.

If you carry a lot of gadgets around with you day-in and day-out you can throw them in a regular purse and risk them weighing everything down and getting scratched or opt for a really unflattering backpack.
Well, the new Slim Bag-in-Bag is a great solution for keeping that fancy purse, neat, tidy and most importantly transform it into an ideal way of transporting around your essential gadgets.
There's a main pocket to store your laptop, then 12 others for cameras, phones and cables. That way you can keep everything neat and zipped up before you slip the Slim Bag-in-Bag inside any purse that's big enough.
We love the fact it comes in a range of colours too, so it's bound to match any of your favourite bags at home.
Available from invite L for $29.

Every once in awhile, we like to go a little retro and wear a wristwatch, you know, that thing on your wrist that tells time. But watches do so much more these days.
How about one that tracks the tide and has a temperature sensor? That would be the new Timex Adventure Series " Tide Temp Compass" with Intelligent Quartz Technology. ($170 - $200.) Or maybe you need an watch that features an altimeter? Voila - "Timex Altimeter" with Intelligent Quartz Technology.
Want one with a 4-hour chronograph and electronic compass:? Ta da - Timex SL series Fly-Back Chronograph.
With the Intelligent Quartz platform, Timex showcases a variety of state-of-the-art technologies, including independent motors and micro-processors that give you a wide variety of choices.
I'm still waiting for the watch that will alert me when the champagne is perfectly chilled. I'm sure they're working on that.
Prada has launched a new range of leather iPad cases that we've fallen just a little bit in love with. Yes they're quite girly, but they look good and keep our favourite gadget wrapped up in leather and a fancy Prada heart design.
They come in black, white and pink and are currently available for $310. Ouch. Then again, we wouldn't expect anything less from the famous fashion house though...

This handmade video mixer for the iPhone 4/4S, created by Honest & Smile, allows you to record two sided videos. You simply slide the device in, adjust the mirrors and angles slightly and start shooting your video. What a great idea!
We're not really sure why it's called 'The Love Box', but presume it's so you can capture both sides of a loving couple's conversation?! However it's designed to be used we think it's pretty cool, and would be great for getting a quick video of an informal interview or remembering a fun meal with a friend.
Check out a video of The Love Box in action.
Available from thelovebox.com for $90.
We're not quite sure how the Leaf mouse works... but know a device that's powered off its own kinetic energy sounds much more economical than one which needs its batteries changing every week!
The design looks really slick and ergonomical too, ideal if you depend on a mouse everyday and can't stand fooling around with the trackpad.
Like most of the amazing ideas on Yanko Design, the Leaf is just a concept now. But watch this space, any product which uses alternative forms of energy is bound to be a big hit over the next year.
