We’ve all heard of 3D printers and as great as it would be to own one, the price tag of over $1500 is a pretty solid deterrent. The FLUX team, a group of young, talented entrepreneurs from Taiwan, decided to take a new route when designing FLUX – they started from scratch. In a world where ideas and products are mimicked, copied and sometimes even outright stolen, FLUX took the slow route, working through 4 different prototypes and over 30 working units, until they had their idea expertly crafted into something completely unique.
Steve was not the kind of guy who ever seemed to relax. So it was surprising to see Steve kicking this beach ball around at a company picnic. He seemed to be having a good time, but it felt more like a performance designed to encourage the team to relax.

With battery-draining applications on the front burner, smartphone users are forced to turn to chargers more often than they might like, or be able, to. Tech companies have come out with a solution to that problem with lines of portable charging devices; however, some models tend to be bulky, awkward, or just downright inconvenient.

Charging cases range in price from $80 up to $120 and are available for the iPhone 4 and 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and S III. The smartphone accessories are sold in a variety of colors and fit just as non-charging cases would, though they do require an adapter cable (included) to use the headphone jack.
