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.
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.
