We probably all consider ourselves pretty technologically savvy at this point. Most of us now own a smartphone whereas circa 2008, the Motorola Razr was one of the most popular phones. Think about it.
Right now, you probably know about the latest iPhone model, the latest Android operating system KitKat, and the hottest tablet on the market. But what about some of the latest tech accessories?
I’ve rounded up 5 items that not only help maintain our plugged-in lifestyle, but do it in style. Yes, you don’t need any of them (or maybe you do), but I assure you that you’ll want all of them!
1. LSTN Troubadour Headphones ($150)
Like guitars, violins and pianos, these headphones are made from wood, which channels a naturally warm and resonant sound. Each pair is individually handcrafted from real, reclaimed wood, available in ebony, cherry, or beech wood. No two pairs are exactly alike, and for each pair sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
2. MuseMini Bluetooth Speaker ($29.95)
Standing at about two inches tall, this small wireless speaker challenges the notion that bigger is better for audio. Sleek and cylindrical, it’s designed to be portable, and it delivers surprising sound for its size. Just charge via USB for an hour and you get six hours of listening time.
3. The Prop, Minimalist Laptop Stand ($16.95)
To give your laptop a cool lift -- literally and figuratively -- this minimalist portable laptop stand is easy to snap together or take apart wherever you go. Well-designed and lightweight, it's made of two pieces of injected molded plastic that lock together. Its translucent body blends in anywhere, and it's great for those with limited space.
4. Unlace Silicone Lace ($12.95)
This colorful, rubber, twistable silicone lace comes in two sizes and colors. If you’ve ever gotten frustrated over a tangled mass of cables or just disliked the general clutter of wires, tame them with a strong and bendable lace to keep them in place. Plus, it can also double as a stand for a device.
5. Unlace Screenster Protective Finger Puppet ($7.95)
Whimsical and bound to bring a smile to your face every time you use it, this protective microsuede finger puff brushes away smudges on your screen and leaves no trace of fingerprints. When it gets too dirty or dusty, just give it a good wash.
