Designed By M AL13 Aluminum iPhone 5 Bumper Case Review

Over the years we have extensively reviewed bumper cases machined out of aluminum, more than most blogs could brag about. So we know a thing or two about what makes a winning iPhone bumper case that is made out of a premium metal. If there is one thing that matters when it comes to aluminum cases it's design. Looks are the most important features when protection is thought of as a side dish. This isn't your $20 -$30 plastic case you'd purchase depending on the level of protection you're looking for.

Designed By M recently went up on Kickstarter with its version of what a minimalist aluminum bumper should be like, and as a result the AL13 aluminum iPhone 5 bumper case was a proven as a successful proof of concept people were willing to spend $80 on. We've been putting the AL13 thru our usual thorough testing just for you. So be sure to read our full review after the jump!

Facet Magnetic iPad / iPad mini Stand Review

The Facet by iLoveHandles is one of many successful Kickstarter products that make our techie lifestyles a little easier. What is it you ask? The most unassuming and ingenious iPad stand we've ever come across. Neodymium magnets embedded into a pyramid-like object is enough awesomeness to peak our interest. iLoveHandles may not have seen the spotlight for its handful of products, but we think the Facet merits an exception. It definitely looks original, but does it work well enough for you to even consider it as your next iPad stand? Find out in our full review after the break!

Trygger Polarizer Filter Lens Clip for iPhone 5 Review

Accessory makers are stopping at nothing to find ways that could improve your stock device and unlocking its true potential. And this time that particular accessory comes to us in the form of a camera lens attachment geared exclusively for the iPhone 5. A company by the name of Trygger, brought its so called The Camera Clip adapter for the iPhone 5 to market thanks to Kickstarter, where the company just barely made it above its funding goal of $10K. Kickstarter has become an important platform in which great products come into fruition and find themselves on retail shelves because of demand and interest by people like us, the consumers.

Like the notable olloclip 3-in-1 lens adapter, Trygger is hoping to fill in the void and the need for a polarizer filter that would hopefully improve the quality of your photos with the tried and true help of polarizer lens filter. Should you say goodbye to your wide angle lens adapter, and start putting a polarizing filter on when shooting with your iPhone 5? Let's find out!

MOS Magnetic Cable Organizer Review

Once in a blue moon we come across a successful Kickstarter product that's so good at what it's meant for, it completely changes the way we look at crowdfunding projects. MOS, or Magnetic Organization System for long - is that very product that was recently brought to market with one very important aspect, design. It's one of the many cable organizers readily available, but the MOS sets itself apart by implementing incredible design with the ease of magnetization you can be proud to set on your desk. We rarely feature cable organizers, yet we feel like the MOS is unique enough to merit our attention. Be sure to check out the full review down below!

Hidden Radio Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review

Over the years, we have covered a few successful Kickstarter products funded and backed by you, the consumers. Some were as promising as we had hoped, while others let us down. Backing up a certain Kickstarter product doesn't necessarily mean you'll be glad you did at the end. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Hidden Radio. A Kickstarter product so successful, it gathered in nearly $1 million.

Hidden Radio is such an incredibly unique product, you would never have guessed it was born thanks to Kickstarter. What is it? Hidden Radio is a wireless Bluetooth portable speaker that's intuitively designed with simplicity in mind. Don't let the future-esque design fool you though, because as the name suggest, there's a hidden FM radio built right in. An FM radio! Who would have thought an FM radio would make the cut these days with services such as Spotify readily available.

MobileMount Review

Over these past years we've gotten to try numerous kinds of stands and mounts of all shapes and sizes, but none of them were like the one we're reviewing today. The MobileMount is a small, universal suction cup mount that will mount just about every tablet, smartphone and hand held device as long as its got a flat surface for it to leech on without prematurely letting loose. Suction cups are one of our worst nightmares, and we bet you also have your fair share of suction cup fails to share too. Will the MobileMount successfully suck its way to glory?
