Dual Contour Camera Release

Dual Contour Camera Release

Up until now, soft release camera buttons were either concave or convex, depending on the manufacturer. For the first time, Komaru offers a dual contour button, convex on the outside and concave in the center. This ergonomic solution is inspired by the keys on a flute, both domed and hollowed to provide a better fit to the musician’s and now the photographer’s fingertip. In this way Komaru instinctively and immediately centers the finger, and therefore the release pressure.

Are Those Pens Real?

Nope, the entire bunch is a multimedia device that can scan codes to play videos, or show off pictures and create an interactive way of reading analog books in our digital world! The speakers of the system are visible at the bottom and function by revolving the cup. The cup holds the pens on the desk and recharges the multimedia pen via induction.

Like Fighting Fire with Fire!

Like Fighting Fire with Fire!

We’re constantly cladding our precious iPhones in plastic and rubber for protection, ultimately changing one of the important aspects of their beautiful design that draws us in to begin with. So why not put that fancy anodized aluminum in… well… anodized aluminum?! That’s the idea behind coverPRO. It’s a case cast in colorful anodized aluminum measuring in at just .5mm thick. Super thin so it doesn’t compromise your phone’s character, but strong and rigid enough to keep it safe from falls and scratches. Get it here!
