The Lunecase ($40) is an intelligent case that's powered by electromagnetic energy and wirelessly provides you with visual notifications of incoming texts and calls. All electronic devices emit electromagnetic energy. The Lunecase uses this unused energy to transform the back of your phone into a notification center. Before the text or call even hits your phone's screen the Lunecase knows it's coming. All of this without the need for batteries or wires. It just makes you wonder what other potential uses are available for this unused energy. You can check out their Kickstarter campaign, which is still going on.

The Stealth-X by Snolo Sleds ($2549) is the Ferrari of Alpine sleds. The Stealth-X's three main parts; the mono shell, the front ski, and the front arm are mostly built from carbon fiber. The mono shell is molded to fit your lower body and includes a foam padded seat with a flip up padded back rest. The laid back seating position gives you the most stability and comfort when steering and leaning. Another great feature is a removable front ski that can be slotted into the shell so the sled can be worn as a backpack. If you're looking for a professional grade sled or have really spoiled kids then this is the ride for you.

I just want to start by saying I lose my keys all the time. I usually end up finding them, but it is usually only after a long tortuous search. And then comes along the hipKey ($90). The answer to my prayers. The hipKey works with your iPhone and has five useful modes. It will tell you when the hipKey or your iPhone are too far away from each other. You can set it to alarm when moved. You can use it to find your iPhone or visa versa. You can turn the alarm off and you can put the hipKey in your child's pocket and it will tell you when they've traveled too far. The hipKey is available from the Apple Store.
