Jaasta E-Ink Keyboard
Jaasta is a promising customizable E-Ink auxiliary keyboard soon to run the gauntlet of a crowdfunding campaign. Whilst customizable keyboards are really nothing new (see '05, '09 and '13) this challenge to QWERTY conformity— simple and use-case driven in it's vision; enabled by rapid developments in E-Ink technology—could be the most convincing yet. Ok, it's not revolutionary, but the Jaasta does look like it could shake up your workflow. Customisable to display shortcuts for a whole host of applications—switching between them on voice-command no less—Jaasta could make shortcut memorisation a whole lot easier. The customizability of the keyboard offers further finger optimization with the ability to get rid of keys you don't use and replace them with ones you do, or add in a duplicate for those you rely on most regularly. To add accessories to the accessory, the number pad is interchangeable (and indeed removable) with a trackpad or drawing tablet extension. (at Core 77)
Eero Wifi System
Say goodbye to wireless deadzones, annoying buffering, and trips to reset the router thanks to eero. One router can't effectively cover an entire home, and that's where eero comes in. Just plug your first eero into your existing modem, and place other eeros throughout your home, giving you multiple access points to that steady WiFi signal. Setup a new network on the fly using the smartphone app, or add a guest quickly without the need to remember and give out your password. And to even further distance itself from the loads of ugly routers on the market, eero has a white, minimalist design that won't have you searching for a closet to shove it into. (at Uncrate)
Corsair GTX 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
Most USB drives are fast until it’s time to copy a large file and you’re looking at a progress bar that lingers around too long. The solution? Integrate an SSD controller into a drive. Flash Voyager GTX gives you transfer speed that rivals your PC’s solid-state drive. And unlike some devices, Flash Voyager GTX delivers amazingly fast performance with large files, small files, and everything in between. It works with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports on Windows, OS X and Linux systems, with no driver installation necessary. And, all this technology is contained in a premium zinc alloy body with aluminum accents and an integrated keyring. (at 7 Gadgets)
Olympus Air A01 16MP Shooter
The Olympus Air A01, a camera sensor and lens mount that's controlled completely by your smartphone. User can interchange the lens quality via a range of controlling apps, to provide an easy-to-use and enjoyable photography experience. The 147g weighing product which is available in either white or black, holds a 16 megapixel image sensor, a 1/16000 ultra high-speed shutter, and a 3x digital zoom. This odd device grips the sides of your smartphone at an angle, and connects via WiFi. Everything is controlled from the Olympus companion app, but the Air A01 does have a physical shutter button for more of a camera feel. The OLYMPUS AIR A01, scheduled to go on sale from March 6, 2015. (at Like Cool)
