Movi

The $199 Movi is a camera built specifically to live-stream events. Pair it with the forthcoming Movi app on your iPhone and you can “edit” live shots by instructing the camera to do closeups, pans, and to cut between shots. (Or don’t: The camera has an automated feature that follows the action and gives it a smooth gloss. Check out a demonstration video here. ) Shipping is expected in April.

The $10 Cableyoyo is an earbud cord spool that features a magnetic center—the better to keep the cords tangle-free for quick winding and unwinding. It’s a re-launch of Bluelounge’s very first product on the company’s 10th anniversary.
