At Nordstrom Eaton Centre’s latest pop-up store “Get Wired” there are a bunch of tech accessories for digital creators. Here are a few that piqued my interest.
1. Philo Phone Covers
These are definitely eye-catching, to say the least! On closer inspection, they live up to their trendy name. Philo is about fusing fashion and tech to create elegant and strong products. This neon collection ranging from iPhone 7 covers to USB wires to earphones all display an explosion of energetic colours. Some key features are the anti-scratch semi-transparent material to still showcase the beauty of your phone, includes 4 side protection, especially for the camera and the entire case, is ultra-slim (only 0.3mm) so you can easily slide it into your back pocket.
With everything being touch screen (including my laptop) lately, this is tech accessory even I can’t stay away from. It claims to remove fingerprints, smudges and effectively sanitize touch screens. For $40 it’s reusable and portable. Simply rinse it with hot water and leave it to air dry. I’m intrigued, are you?
Guilty of losing your keys, wallet, purse? We’ve all been in that situation. Enter Chipolo Plus – now you can track all your essentials with this tiny device. Sync it with your iOS or Android smartphone, attach it to the item you consistently lose and next time you can’t find your keys it will ping (with a very loud sound I might add). Travellers, it says you can track luggage, which I’ve lost on more than one account.
4. Leica Sofort
It’s funny how Gen Z is raving about instant film cameras given they were born in the digital age. For me, these cameras are super special. They create an everlasting moment you can display unlike taking multiple photos that are tucked away in the depths of your phone. There are a variety of settings even one to take selfies and it comes in 3 awesome colours for fashion-conscious people. Bit out of my price range but less bulky looking than Polaroids.
With Fitbit reigning in this department of wearable tech, Ringly has managed to create a design that’s beautiful for fashion lovers but still serves the purpose of tracking your activities and alleviating stress with guided meditation exercise. More on the design – it’s made with reconstituted stone and Italian leather so you can look super stylish when you work out. Which is why all girls own Lululemon tights, no?
The Nordstrom pop-ups are usually for a month but you can find these tech accessories on their respective websites or Amazon.
