Check out this video of Steve Wozniak rocking one of our black Q Collection iPod nano watch bands while chatting about iOS 7 and PRISM in an off the cuff airport interview.
It’s pretty awesome that he still wears one long after the iPod nano was redesigned. We hope you guys are still wearing yours too!
Check out the video here.
For this installment of “Get Amped for the Weekend,” we’ve decided that the best way to let go of the week’s stress is to channel your inner child. With that in mind, we’ve devised ways for you to get a healthy dose of nostalgia. Hopefully, this will grant you the wonder you always used to feel when you were a kid. It’s a good place to be when you’re getting ready for a stellar weekend.
1) Watch TV Shows from Your Childhood
2) Eat Some Sugary Cereal
We live in very diet-oriented times, so this Friday, why don’t you cut loose and eat a big bowl of Cap’n Crunch with crunchberries? This weekend, who cares? Start your day with a sugar-blasted cereal you ate when you were a little kid. Put chocolate syrup in it; go wild!
3) Ride Some Roller Coasters!
Or at least go to a theme park if roller coasters aren’t your thing. The rides are probably more exciting than they used to be, since you’ve lost your little kid indestructibility. It’s healthy to seek a few thrills here and there!
4) Play Outside
It could be anything, however simple. Sometimes it’s nice to just go outside and throw a football. It’s even more fun if there’s someone there to catch it. Just leave your cell phone inside and go play!
There are a million other ways to connect with that inner kid, but we feel it’d be best to let your inner child speak to you. I’m sure he or she has plenty to say. Oh, yeah, almost forgot, when you’re really little you get baths in the kitchen sink, right? So...
OK, we know. We live in the third dimension, already, but not completely. Television’s 2D—oh, wait, not anymore. Films are in 3D, too. Two dimensions just don’t cut it anymore it seems. Most exciting of all, however, is the development of 3D printers. They’re just what they sound like, if you can wrap your head around that. We’ve begun to print transistors, sort of. And, if you don’t get the 3D picture, here’s one in action, printing some tasty chocolate for you:
Yeah, it could happen a little quicker, but why don’t we focus on the fact that this thing is printing food. It’s probably not the chocolate you’re accustomed to; it’s composed of interesting powders to which moisture is added in the printing process, i.e. algae, grasses, and (gulp) pulverized insects. If that doesn’t look like chocolate, though, then we don’t know what does. So, what can we do with synthesized food?
With printed food, we could help solve world hunger because the process “reduces waste to nearly zero,” as we would find ourselves eating reconfigurations of material we wouldn’t normally eat, according to a recent National Geographic article. Furthermore, our current food technology can’t quite make a 5-year mission to Mars, which is definitely in the near future for humankind. As we take the final frontier further and further, 3D-printed foods will be key in sustaining us. The first dish to be served in 3D? Pizza! Because, of course it has to be pizza.
kubxlab's ampjacket has another fan! We’ve just landed on
Thrillist, a leading digital lifestyle publication. Thanks, Thrillist! This
post’s topic? Multi-tasking. The ampjacket case for iPhone 5
does two things at once: it protects your phone and it amplifies your volume by more than double. Pretty neat. It also
learns Latin and makes an origami crane, all at the same time. Ok. That’s not
exactly true, but still pretty impressive, no? The accolades are adding up, so
we’re just gonna let the ampjacket keep grindin’ and shinin’! Stay tuned for
more ampjacket news and kubxlab news in general.
What can your ampjacket do? If your ampjacket’s multitasking for you, too, let us know how on Facebook and Twitter. Check out the full feature here: http://www.thrillist.com/own/nation/the-ampjacket-protects-your-gadgets-and-makes-them-twice-as-loud?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social.
Our Apple accessories are handy because they can turn a whisper into a shout for our music lovers and, really, for anyone who wants to get just a little louder. In this spirit, we’ve put together videos of a few other amplifiers to carry you into another lovely weekend. We submit for your approval, goats yelling like people:
kubxlab can appreciate life’s simple pleasures. It’s nice when something as simple as an iPhone case can provide a service as complex as amplification. In this sense, the ampjacket looks like one thing and acts like another. In keeping with the tradition of the goats, here is a video of other characters that look like one thing and act like another, namely animals that act like people, beyond just yelling:
Have a splendid weekend! You’re welcome, everyone. Now, bask in the glory of animals with identity crises!
Every good day deserves a good soundtrack. kubxlab knows you’re gearing up for a barrage of great days, so we’re going to hook you up to the best playlist for the sunny season. Groove on your ampjacket while you wander your way through merry days all summer. Whichever of our apple accessories you use, these tunes will make the day into a journey.
From arena jams to deep cuts, this playlist will take you through a maze, but it’s all good, and it’s all summer. Fire up the grill, watch the sunset, or sunrise, and live it up this season with kubxlab. Who knows where you’ll go and what you’ll do? Maybe your goal is to answer those questions with “nowhere” and “nothing,” which is beautiful in its own way. Chill out, amp up, you decide. Take your kubxlab apple accessories with you, and don’t let the beat drop.
Last April, NASA’s Landsat Data Community Mission zoomed out, way out, to take “The Long Swath.” It’s a 6,000 mile-long 120 mile-wide strip of your favorite planet, Earth. And, yes, that’s a ridiculously long swath. At a modest 19.06 gigapixels, it’s the biggest photo of Earth, ever. Watch earth’s climates change and change again as you take a stroll from Russia to the bottom of Africa.
Follow NASA’s 6000 Mile Picture here:
Landsat’s a satellite (clever name, huh?) in orbit, so the entire shot only took around 20 minutes. Makes sense when you think about it hurtling through space at 17,000 miles per hour, so this shot is just what it was looking at for those minutes. Why is this so interesting, you might ask? Well, we’re seeing what was happening in all those places at the same time, which has never been done before. Landsat shows us a good bit of Mother Earth for twenty minutes. We think that’s a pretty important perspective. Next time you’re feeling a little confined, or you’re getting caught up in whatever you’re doing, take a tip from the Landsat and zoom out. If you have a minute, check out what these astronauts have to say about their zoom-out experience:
Cult of Mac featured the ampjacket iPhone case on their front page with a fantastic review, “AmpJacket Makes Your iPhone Louder And Stronger.”
Cult of Mac writer, Charlie Sorrel, went hands-on with the latest in our line of Apple accessories, highlighting how the ampjacket enhances the iOS experience: “I’m struggling to find anything bad about this case. It even makes Siri easier to use.”
Charlie’s verdict: “Light, tough, flexible, cool-looking, available in a rainbow of not-quite-garish colors and able to do its job just fine; there’s a lot to like about the AmpJacket. It even turns your iPhone into a miniature see-saw (teeter-totter) for pet chicks (see photo), which is a bonus not mentioned anywhere in the FAQ. In a world where a branded iPhone skin can cost the same amount as this $30 utilicase, you’d be a fool if you didn’t at least consider it.” And, we couldn’t agree more!

You can now pick up ampjacket hard shell cases for iPhone 5 in gray, blue, red and black at Office Depot locations nationwide and online at Officedepot.com.
If you haven’t heard…
Our ampjacket iPhone 5 case uses an ingenuous channel technology that filters the sound through the hard-shell polycarbonate case and projects it outwardly while enhancing it. The result is a rich boost in volume that is twice as loud!
The iPhone speaker amplifier case is perfect for any occasion when you need extra burst of sound, like: listening to music, watching videos, making a conference call, face-timing with friends or hands-free calling.
