It may look like a simple envelope, but this is actually a secret iPad/laptop sleeve made from PE foam with a tough outer layer made of Tyvek. Its shock protected, splash proof, writable and tear-proof.
But the best part is that it is only $15 for the next 24 hours. That’s 25% off the list price.
The Undercover Mini Sleeve (a long awaited follow up to the laptop version) is designed to camouflage your cellphone or MP3 player as an “innocuous looking little envelope”. That’s all well and good if you want to deter gadget thieves, but identity thieves will pick up right were they left off.
The sleeve is tear proof, waterproof and size adjustable.
It always seemed stupid to me that you needed a cardboard sleeve on top of a coffee cup in order to protect your hands from the heat. Well, this Heatswell concept might be the answer to that problem. As you can see in the video, the material automatically swells when hot liquid is poured inside, creating a soft barrier and, as an added bonus, 3D logos.
Supposedly, the cup is cheaper than buying a cup and a sleeve separately, and the material used is 100% recyclable and biodegradable. If that is true, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this in your local Starbucks sometime soon. Speaking of Starbucks, don’t forget to enter the Starbucks contest from our sister site, Fashionably Geek.
How do you sell 45rpm records in an era of digital music? Package it in a sleeve that can be transformed into a record player. This brilliant marketing idea from GGRP Sound takes only seconds to set up, and the only extra tool you need is a pencil.
This fill ‘er up sleeve will keep your hand cool while you fuel yourself with coffee and morning jitters courtesy of Juan Valdez. So, the only question that remains is what grade of Colombian go juice would you like today? There’s Regular (black), Plus (added cream), and Premium (with cream and sugar).
An envelope as a laptop sleeve is not new, but the Undercover Laptop Sleeve comes pre-worn so that it looks like some old, beat up envelope. No thief is going to waste his time checking to see if there is anything worthwhile in there. The sleeve comes in two sizes to accommodate most laptops: 8″-13″ and 13″ to 17″. It is completely padded and is tear-proof and waterproof.
According to BetaNews, reports have indicated that all new iPod Nanos will be shipped with a protective sleeve to prevent scratches.
This news comes despite Apple’s continued denial that there is a widespread scratching problem with the Nano’s screen
in the first place. And, as many of you know, Apple is currently involved in a class action lawsuit that alleges the company had prior knowledge of the screen defect, but decided to proceed with production anyway.
“The case we ship with the new 5th generation iPod has received great feedback from customers and we are including a similar case with the iPod nano,” Apple spokesperson Steve Dowling told BetaNews. This is, of course, Applespeak for ” We know that the screen is defective and we are trying to find the cheapest solution possible to fix it.”
Rumors have also surfaced that the company may be ordering its Chinese manufacturing plants to coat the players with an extra layer of protective plastic.
If you are wondering, there are currently no plans to make the sleeve available to current owners of the Nano. Early adopters got screwed again.
According to lore, the Iron Throne was made up of all the swords that were surrendered to Aeryn Targaryen. According to the above picture, Gandalf was among the conquered. You can see what appears to be his sword tucked behind Joffrey’s head. There’s really no explanation for this, but we haven’t seen Peter Jackson’s third Hobbit film. Who knows what he’s got up his sleeve?
Then again, the prop makers behind the throne probably used whatever they could get their hands on—which means other famous swords might be lurking in the chair. Happy hunting.
