Lucidream eXo Is A Stainless Steel Exo-Skeleton iPhone 6 Case

We've seen our fair share of iPhone cases over the years, but there's one more irregular case that has caught our eye. And that case is the eXo by a company called Lucidream. This strikingly unique exo-skeleton case is fashioned out stainless steel that has been hand polished and comprised of three individual parts that interlock to protect the iPhone 6 from impacts and scratches – all while covering as little of the iPhone's svelte design as possible without degrading reception. Sounds familiar? While not an exact replica of Mod-3's aluminum-made Radius exo-skeleton case, the eXo case does share a stark resemblance to the Radius at its core, but is also a much more beefier and versatile variant that gets its industrial look and design from mechanical watch movements in that it features a clever non-screw or tool installation design with an integrated spring-damped impact absorption system.

Not long after LifeProof revealed its water and shock-proof Fre case for the iPhone 6, the company's more advanced Nuud waterproof case featuring an impressive screenless technology that let's you touch the actual glass touchscreen of your device without an easy-to-scratch plastic screen protector to get in the way of that ultra-smooth finger gliding experience – is slated to be released early next month for $90. And now we also know what LifeProof's Nuud case for the iPhone 6 looks like. It'll be available in both black and white with a more revealing see-through clear back design similar to its predecessor.

Bang & Olufsen's Less Costly BeoPlay H2 Headphones Are A Thing Of Beauty 

If you've got an expensive taste for quality and fashion, you'd be more than happy to know that you'll now be able to get your hands on the uniquely designed BeoPlay H2 headphones. High-end audio connoisseur Bang & Olufsen has introduced a more affordably priced pair of quite stylish looking, portable on-ear headphones that offer a similar level of premium build quality and design as its larger over-the-ear BeoPlay H6 headphones.

The new BeoPlay H2 offer B&O's signature superior natural sound clarity using custom tuned 40mm drivers, and feature a flexible adaptive headband that automatically adjusts to fit your head, durable lightweight polycarbonate composite frame textured to look like aluminum and covered in rugged textile fabric designed to evoke a familiar clothing-like feel while genuine padded lamb skin leather ear cushions provide a comfortable and sound-isolating listening experience. Unlike the more expensive BeoPlay H6 headphones, Bang & Olufsen's new BeoPlay H2 aren't made from any metal materials, but do feature a detachable and interchangeable audio cable with an in-line remote and microphone for music playback control and headset functionality.

Magpul Deploys Field Case Cases For iPhone 6, 6 Plus

Magpul announced that its popular and highly textured Field Case cases are now available for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with the more rugged dual-layered Bump Case dropping in as late as spring. Magpul kept the Field Case true to its original design with of course only its form factor slimmed down to fit Apple's slimmer, and much rounder smartphone.

The new Magpul Field Case for the iPhone 6 is a semi-rigid cover designed to provide basic protection in the field. Using a new synthetic material, the Field Case features PMAG-style ribs for added grip, snap-on design for easy installation and removal, and slides easily in and out of pockets without snagging.

Although the iPhone 6 Plus case is expected to start shipping in mid-December, customers can now order the Field Case for the iPhone 6 in black and olive drab green with more colors to come soon – for $17. In addition to newly released cases for the new iPhones, Magpul has also made a Bump Case (ships in mid-December) and Field Case (now available) cases for the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Spigen Intros Teka Aluminum In-Ear Headphones

If you like their protective smartphone and tablet cases, chances are that you'll also like their new in-ear headphones. That's right, Spigen's foray into the audio market is as real as it gets. Though for all we know these can simply be another rebranded pair of in-ears from an OEM. Not that it really matters as long as don't fall short. The Teka are Spigen's first Beats-inspired in-ear headphones crafted from aluminum with a wallet-friendly price tag. Like the Nocs NS500 Aluminum, the Teka's aluminum housing features diamond-cut chamfered edges, because we all know chamfered aluminum is really a must on anything that wants to look a bit more premium.

Hardcore Tablet Stands Made From Slices Of Train Rails

Who would have though that heavy chunks of real train rails would make one of the most amazing pieces of tablet stands imaginable. Griffin has collaborated with Rail Yard Studios to create one-of-a-kind, hand-made gritty tablet stands, each costing $130 and artistically fashioned out of reclaimed decommissioned rail stock and railroad spikes forged out of steel. The Rail Artifact Stand is made up from two railroad spikes welded to a flat tie plate once used to hold down parts of the rail creating an angled back support for virtually any tablet. The less grungy-looking Rail Slice Stand is a solid slice of a 12-inch wide railroad rail weighing a hefty 11 pounds, and features a CNC-milled cavity for your tablet's charging cable connector. Both stands were made to hold full-sized and small tablets in either portrait or landscape orientations.
