Jelly 5.1A USB Charger
The Jelly is a multi-port USB charger that allows you to juice up all your devices at the same time, and at warp speed too. Well, at least at the maximum speed at which the device can possibly be charged. It’s a compact charger that stands up tall like a coffee mug, and has four ports for charging. One is for charging your tablet, and the other three for smartphones and other devices that can be charged through their USB ports. It’s ideal for people who carry around two or more devices, and also for use in offices where the charger can be shared. The long power cord curls up nicely into the charger’s silicone sleeve, which can be removed to make it easier to carry while you’re traveling. (at The Gadget Flow)
REK Expanding Bookcase
What a great idea - a bookcase that grows with your book collection! By Dutch designer Reinier de Jong, the original expanding bookcase was so well received that he designed a Junior size for his own three-year-old. The animated illustration below shows the expansion/collapse. It's quite amazing how much bookcase you can create with very little effort (or how easily you can minimize the size). (at Trendir)
Grain Audio Packable Wireless Speaker
Forget about all of those lightweight, plastic audio boxes out there that feel like they would crumble with their first fall, and embrace the Grain Audio Packable Wireless Speaker. Its solid walnut construction gives it some heft and durability, while lending the natural beauty and acoustic properties of a hardwood cabinet. Dual two-inch drivers, a passive radiator, and the technical proficiency Grammy Award-winning Waves MaxAudio Suite deliver music the way it was meant to sound — without all the gimmicky enhancements found in lots of portable speaker systems. Combine all that with powerful Bluetooth connectivity, eight hours of battery life, and a carrying pouch, and what you get is one of the best (and best looking) small speakers available. (at Uncrate)
Google Nexus 5

The handset comes with a 4.95-inch full HD IPS display boasting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with 445ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz with Adreno 330 GPU.
