10 excellent iPhone and iPad gadgets and accessories
With all the excitement kicking up about Microsoft’s Surface tablet (which comes complete with an unobtrusive keyboard), iPad users may find themselves wanting to get something closer to a laptop experience out of their device. Luckily, that’s just what the CruxCase 360 sets out to do, acting as a protective iPad case that doubles as a stand and a keyboard.
Need a handy-dandy cool-me-off? Try the iPhone plug-in fan! Unfortunately, it appears as though this little gadget only works for the iPhone, and not the iPad, due to the size of the plug.
As many of you know, Kickstarter is an excellent site for individuals to crowdsource project funding. So far, of the $11,000 goal, over $96,000 has been raised to bring to life the Limbal flexible phone mount. As seen in the image above, it works for more than just the iPhone, but it’s an excellent catalyst for getting your phone out of your pocket, and into more functional space.
The MiLi Pico Projector 2 turns your phone into — you guessed it — a projector! Complete with a LCOS LED micro video projector, speakers, and a built-in stand, it’s the perfect gadget to turn your phone into an entertainment center. Oh, and if that’s not enough, it also has a built-in 2800mAh battery that charges your phone while it’s hooked into the device. Pretty nifty.

If you have a new iPad (as in, the iPad 3), then you may want to consider purchasing this adapter, which essentially allows you to output your iPad’s screen to your TV (or anything else with an HDMI input). Plenty of games and apps will feel like they’ve had new life breathed into them when you play them on a much larger screen!
