Laptops, tablets, smartphones ... there are plenty of options out there when it comes to managing the constant stream of information we find ourselves faced with - here's another. Feedair is a personalized news tracker that fits in the palm of your hand and uses your smartphone as a controller (iPhone and Android apps are available) to push information via WiFi to the simple scrolling LED readout on the device.

The Feedair system is designed to look like a chat bubble and the readout of feeds are accessed from the company's the video widget or "vidget" store. The feeds include everything from BBC News to email, weather and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Once you select what you'd like to see from your vidgets, messages are scrolled across the screen in a non-intrusive, and easy-to-read text-based message.

"The idea is, that we intelligently filter and aggregate information," said Simon Milner, Feedair Chief Executive and Founder. "Think of all that flood of information that we all receive on a daily basis. The idea is to simplify that, and at a glance give you notifications."

Available in four bright colors - blue, silver, black, and pink - the Feedair system keeps you connected 24/7.
