Finally, a way to be in two places at once — kind of. The Double Robot ($2,000) is a unique robot that mounts an iPad atop a motorized stand, letting you see, hear, and move about far-away environments using nothing but an iPad on the other end. A touch-based interface makes controlling the Double a breeze, while an accelerometer and gyroscope work to keep the 10"-wide robot stable until you're done moving it, at which point dual kickstands pop out to let the battery take a rest. Welcome to the future. [Scouted by Frederik]
Apple tries hard, but battery life isn't exactly at the top of the feature list for iPhones and iPads — which makes chargers a necessary and not exactly good-looking evil. Dress them up a bit with Eastern Collective Textile iCables ($14). These handsome accessories feature a standard USB plug on one end and an Apple 30-pin connector on the other, with stylish woven designs in between, letting you charge up your iGadgets without succumbing to the tangled white cable monster.
