first_img Keto Turns Your Smartphone Into Your Car KeysCovert Dock for Nintendo Switch Fits in Your Pocket Stay on target As George Costanza once said, your wallet is an organizer, a secretary, and a friend.But the man’s overstuffed billfold also exploded in a burst of receipts, Irish money, and loyalty cards. So maybe don’t follow his advice.Manufacturer Ekster has a better solution: a solar-charged, RFID-blocking smart wallet with location tracking.The ultra-slim accessory allows easy one-click access to hidden cards—further protected from wireless skimming and data theft via built-in shielding technology.EksterA removable Tile Smart Location Platform tracker card, meanwhile, lets owners monitor their wallet’s whereabouts. Lost it in your house or at the gym? Simply “call” from the mobile companion app to trigger an alarm (when within Bluetooth range). It also works for missing smartphones: Tap the wallet twice to sound off your handset—even in silent mode.EksterThe $29 Tile portable tracker runs on solar energy, and requires only three hours of sunlight each month. “This means no wires, no clutter and no low battery,” company co-founder Richard Canneman said in a January statement.Ekster’s second-generation design quickly surpassed last month’s Indiegogo crowdfunding goal, and recently exceeded its Kickstarter target, with 20 days left in its campaign.“We’ve created an alternative to the traditional bi-fold wallet, so our customers can enjoy the fastest card access to date in an even slimmer design,” co-founder Rick Scharnigg boasted last month.Interested buyers can pre-order the smart wallet, available in two versions and four colors (brown, blue, tan, black) and expected for delivery this summer.The 0.35-inch Senate edition—$69 without tracker—offers room for seven-plus cards, while the 0.59-inch Parliament bi-fold wallet—$89 without tracker—carries 10 or more. Each promises RFID/NFC protection for six cards maximum.Not keen on carrying a wallet? Ekster is also selling an iPhone case (for Apple models 6 and 7), with a price tag of $29, and enough room for a scanner card and some emergency cash.As of press time, the Kickstarter campaign collected more than $76,660 from 765 backers, far exceeding the pledged $10,562 goal.last_img read more

Marshadow Is The Newest Mythical Pokemon Being Added InGame

first_imgStay on target If you foolishly thought you knew everything there is to know about Pokemon, you’re going to want to think again. There’s a new mythical Pokemon in town, and its name is Marshadow. The new Pokemon has had the rumor mill up in arms over the last few months. But it’s finally official, and we can finally welcome Marshadow to the world, with a brand new trailer that not only shows Marshadow off but gives you a glimpse at what might be coming in the future for this rare Pokemon.Marshadow won’t be just another average Pokemon, however. The Pokemon Company has already made it very clear that you won’t be able to capture it during normal gameplay. But there aren’t any details just yet on how, exactly, you will be able to add it to your collection. What we do know about Marshadow is that it’s going to be a dual-type fighting and ghost Pokemon that won’t evolve into another Pokemon or evolve from another Pokemon, though it kindles images of Litwick and similar creatures.It does have a special Z-Move, which is the Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike, which, according to Bulbapedia “punches and kicks the target consecutively with full force.” Perhaps we’ll see some of that Z-Move on display in the upcoming Pokemon movie that’s scheduled for a July release in Japan, called Pokemon: I Choose You!, as yet unconfirmed for a Western release.Marshadow is an interesting new addition to the Pokemon family, and it’ll be interesting to see what happens when it’s finally available for us to check out. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer below for a glimpse at what we might be able to expect from this dark and diminutive Pokemon.
