Products: PhoneSuit Power Core Micro - Backup charger for your smartphone

Phonesuit Chargers

I highlighted another charger device in the 2012 Gift Guide, but I came across the PhoneSuit Core Micro today and wanted to share it with you. Like the Mophie Powerstation, the PhoneSuit Power Core Micro claims to charge your iPhone5 (or other smartphone) with about 2 full charges. Unlike previous cases that were meant to be attached to your phone, these power "bricks" can ride in your bag or in your pocket until you need them.

You charge the Phonesuit Core Micro using a micro-USB cable. Once charged you can connect any USB device to the standard USB outlet to charge it. This means you can attach your older 30-pin iPhone cable or the newer Lightening cable (or any other USB cable for that matter)

In my work, I can usually charge my devices while driving, but for those of you are away from power for any length of time or just need some extra power to complete that recording, phone call or video, the Phonesuit Core Micro could be very useful to you.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
