A gadget that turns your smartphone into a retro TV

A magnetic smartphone holder
The Mengo holder is suitable for most smartphones and GPS-navigators. 4 strong magnets can securely hold the device at any angle.
Shoelaces you don’t need to tie every time

BudStraps will be useful for those people whose headphones fall out of their ears all the time, such as during a workout.
A cube that helps you to concentrate
Fidget Cube is a cube that has buttons, wheels, and switches on its edges — in short, everything that could help you to keep your hands busy. The toy’s creators claim it can replace pens and other objects that people like to “play” with. The cube helps its owner to relieve their feelings of stress and focus on performing everyday tasks.
A “clever” fitness tracker
An inexpensive device called Misfit Shine automatically calculates the distance you’ve walked and the calories you’ve burnt, detects sleep phases, and synchronizes with your smartphone. In addition, the tracker is equipped with a replaceable battery, which lasts for 6 months of work.

A set of tablet and smartphone lenses

A smartphone laser ruler
In addition to measuring the distance between an object and the phone, the iPin Spatial Ruler can determine the distance between two points on the object it captures, such as the length of a desk.
