Sarah Tew Senior Editor / Photography
I'm a visual storyteller, working primarily in the medium of photography and photoshop. I listen to more podcasts than I can keep up with and enjoy gardening, cooking, reading, and am striving for a sustainable lifestyle. A big-picture thinker, I am always trying to put the pieces together, and though things are scary these days, I believe humanity will pull through.

Elite Smartcase

Here's a cool concept. You attach the Elite Smartcase case to your phone, like your Samsung Galaxy, then add magnetic mods when you need them, like an extra battery pack. Sounds a little like a phone we know...

Pinn

Think of Pinn as a Bluetooth-connected headset that you clip to your belt (or wherever) instead of stick in your ear. You can see and answer calls, and it still includes a detachable earpiece for use when you need it.
