This Device Can Charge Your Phone In 30 Seconds

If you have a smartphone, you probably know the horrible feeling of packing up to leave the house, only to realize your smartphone is about to die.

Such a situation leaves you in a pickle. Do you risk being late for a couple minutes of precious, precious charge? Or do you resign yourself to an afternoon without email, Instagram and Candy Crush?

Enter StoreDot, an Israeli tech startup that hopes to make this exact conundrum a thing of the past. The company claims to have created a new battery pack that can fully charge your phone in a mere 30 seconds. Yes, even if you’re at zero percent.

The pack, which premiered Monday at a Microsoft Think Next event in Tel Aviv, relies on microscopic magnets called “nanodots” to enable its game-changing charger. As you can see in the above video, the prototype attaches to a phone that is then juiced up in half a minute.

Cloak Takes an “Antisocial” Approach

cloak-side     The market is flooded with applications presenting opportunities to meet new people. Some of the apps and programs almost force you to use your Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google+ information to sign in or sign up for new services. Our online social lives and communities have expanded to an almost unmanageable level. Unfortunately, being online and available has become such a necessity that we can’t just “unplug” sometimes.

The creators of the Cloak app understand you can’t always “unplug,” but, you can avoid face-to-face confrontations with people who are no longer in your circle of friends, ex-significant others, and current or past business associates. Cloak currently is only compatible with Foursquare and Instagram, but will be expanding to other programs soon. It takes the users’ information from these apps to plot their location and the location of their contacts. You can then mark the contacts you do not want to encounter. The app alerts you when you are within a certain radius of them so a decision can be made to whether to avoid them. Hopefully, there are not too many “avoidable” people or there will not be too many places you can go!
