If you're looking for a better way to type on your iPad when you're writing emails and documents, then you'd usually have to get a Bluetooth keyboard or attach the device to a dock rather than tap away on the touchscreen. But, those kind of accessories can be really awkward to carry around, which is why we love the idea behind the iKeyboard, a kind of overlay for your iPad that makes it much easier to type quickly.
The iKeyboard is a light film that sits over the iPad's screen and has depressed keys, meaning you can still use the touchscreen capabilities, but you're less likely to make mistakes and slip around!

We've been fans of Gelaskin's bright and quirky gadget skins for some time now, combining tough and glossy materials with all kinds of unique designs. However, at CES this year the company revealed its Hardcase range for iPhone 3, 3G, 4 and 4S devices, which we may just love even more.
As you'd expect the cases are pretty durable while still keeping your device slim and they also manage to cover all of the necessary edges without affecting any of the iPhone's functionality. All of Gelaskin's image library can be added to the Hardcase range now too, so you can choose from beautiful works of art to intricate patterns.
Our favourite? Probably the bright geometric pattern above called Intermezzo, but really we're spoilt for choice!
Check out the full collection at Gelaskins.
Your fashion sense is impeccable, friends call your music tastes eclectic,yet you have the same iPhone case as millions of other people?
Personally customize all the cases or skins for your devices with Skinit, the pioneers in skins, which now has a fun Customizer tool for cases, to show off your unique style.
At CES, Skinit.com debuted the new line of cases which can be personalized - just like its skins. With the Customizer, consumers can upload any image and create custom protective covers that fit perfectly with thousands of devices from mobile phones, laptops, gaming systems, tablets and even medical devices.
I don't know that a Hello Kitty skin on a defibrillator is going to give patients much confidence however.
So there are plenty of gadgets and gizmos designed to make giving presentations easier, but do any look as cute as this!? And no, it's not because it's pink (it actually comes in much better shades, like blue, silver and green too).
The Genius Ring doesn't just allow you to toggle through presentations either, you can move a cursor around the screen and operate other programs too, all just with the ring. It works with a built-in laser pointer, meaning you can be up to ten metres away from any screen or board and it'll still work accurately.
Maybe giving presentations isn't as nerve-wracking as we thought?!
Available from Genius for $69.99.

USB sticks are so handy, but no matter what clips they come with, or where you keep them you're guaranteed to lose one at least once a month.
This is why we love the LOOPO, a neat little USB device that comes with a small clasp, allowing you to clip it onto pretty much everything!
So where would you keep yours? Diary, necklace, keys?

Instead of investing in a pricey case for your phone or MP3 player, why not get crafty and knit one yourself...
This clever little kit from Uncommon Goods comes with all the necessary equipment you need to make a case as well as a cosy covering for your headphones to stop them getting tangled.
Of course you could be super creative and make your own pattern to follow, but for now we think we'll stick with the knitting kit.
Available from Uncommon Goods for $25.
The Kindle is set to be really popular this Christmas, but some people may find its lack of lighting a bit annoying. So, we love this idea called the Kapsule Lightstand, which is currently on Kickstarter.
It acts as a cute little light and a Kindle stand, to make reading easier wherever you are and whichever light you're reading in.
The Kapsule Lightstand is currently on Kickstarter, so check it out to pledge $40 for one yourself.
This clever carabiner clip screws into your iPhone and lets you charge it while it's attached. You can then clip it onto things, carry it around and keep it on a camera strap too.
Available from Photojojo for $30.

We love this idea from Bone Collection, which is essentially just a mini lead for your phone called the iPhone 4S Tail.
It's got a tough silicone case and a wrist strap too, which will let you hang onto your phone and keep it safe and secure.

Styluses (or styli) are great inventions now that so many of us depend on touch screens to operate our phones and tablets day in and day out. Not only do they let us doodle, but they stop our fat fingers pressing the wrong keys and allow us to wear gloves when it's cold too!
There are some great styli on the market, but a new Kickstarter campaign launched by LunaTik aims to produce the ideal stylus, the one to rule them all.
