Capable of connecting to iPads, iPods, iPhones and other small electronic devices, this pocket-sized laser projector can turn almost anything into a presentation. With a device not much larger than an iPhone, you can run a presentation, show photos or stream video anywhere, all projected up to 100 inches. As a laser projector, it’s always in focus, even on curved and uneven surfaces. $350.


A knocked over glass or slip into a sink can mean a couple hundred dollars to replace a ruined gadget. That’s what Salt Lake-based HzO is trying to prevent with WaterBlock, a vacuum-deposited coating that protects electronics from water damage. This unique product weighs virtually nothing and isn’t bulky like a waterproof case.
Not yet commercially available.


This all-in-one case, stand and keyboard adds laptop-like functionality to the iPad. The protective case unfolds into built-in stand and Bluetooth keyboard. $99.99.
