Lapka Personal Environment Monitor

Yes, the various components that make up the Lapka Personal Environment Monitor ($TBA) are useful — they can individually test for radiation, whether food is organic or not, electromagnetic fields, and climate — otherwise known as temperature and humidity. And yes, they connect to your iPhone using nothing but a simple headphone cable. But what's really impressive is how they manage to be so stylish while being so unbelievably small. Coming later this year.

  • SmartThings

    So you want to link up your entire house with your iPhone? SmartThings ($150 and up) can help make it happen. This new system promises to let you control and/or receive notifications from a variety of devices — such as power outlets, open/shut, motion, and presence sensors — with many more on the way. Need to know if you shut your front door, turn out a light, or find out if your kitty has gotten out of the bathroom? Fire up the app and you'll be able to do all that and more, from where ever you are.

  • Systm iPhone Cases

    Hardcore waterproof protection is necessary for some, but most iPhone users just want a case that will keep their glass baby from shattering when it takes an inevitable tumble. Systm iPhone Cases ($25-$50) can handle the latter situation with aplomb, using raised side bumpers, reinforced corners, and, in the more advanced models, Poron XRD foam to protect your device from damage. Oh, and they seem to have a thing for orange. No problems there.
