Griffin Helo TC

We're no strangers to indoor helicopters, but beyond our challenges in keeping them off the ceiling, we're not big fans of their typically chintzy controllers. The Griffin Helo TC ($50; Available this Fall) overcomes this limitation by bundling a headphone port-connecting infrared module with the metal and polycarbonate 'copter, letting you use your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad as the controller — using on-screen or Tilt-to-Fly controls — running for up to 6 to 8 minutes per charge with the ability to charge from any USB power source, and saving up to three flight plans in memory.

  • Numark iDJ Live

    Having honed your newly-found DJ skills on your iPad using Djay, are you ready to take the next step and transfer from the virtual to real life controls? Numark iDJ Live ($100) was made for you. Developed in partnership with Algoriddim, the company behind the aforementioned Djay, the iDJ Live connects to your iPad — or iPhone, or iPod touch — via the Dock Connector, and gives you a pair of real performance platters for cueing and scratching, a central mixing section with a crossfader and plenty of buttons and knobs, and a custom audio cable for connecting to speakers and headphones. True, it's not technically a "real" DJ setup, but it's a big step in that direction.

  • iPhone SLR Mount

    Forget about the fact that you're going to have to carry around a big ol' lens. The iPhone SLR Mount ($190-$249) is here to give your iPhone access to Nikon or Canon lenses for supposedly awesome quality photos. The set includes an aluminum case, a fairly thick lens adapter, and a UV filter, all of which team up to let you attach your favorite zoom, macro, fisheye, or wide angle glass to your always connected shooter, making for nearly endless instant-upload photographic possibilities.
