Gizmag goes in-depth to compare the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4

It’s tricky business, comparing iPhone and Galaxy smartphones. Too often the conversation disintegrates into fingerpointing, one-upmanship, and sermons from the Church of the Holy Fanboy.

The University of Illinois' iPhone-based biosensor

We already know that smartphones can perform many of the same features as more expensive computers, cameras and other devices. Now, a portable iPhone cradle made up of about US$200 worth of electronics is claimed to be as accurate of a biosensor as a $50,000 spectrophotometer that remains stuck in a lab.  Read More

The Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter and app allows gun owners to mount their iPhone or ...

You might think strapping your smartphone to a firearm is the last thing you'd want to do with it, but what if it could provide helpful information while hunting or during target practice? That's just what inventor Jason Giddings and his new company, Inteliscope, LLC, decided to do when they combined guns with smart devices to launch the Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter. Along with an iOS app, the adapter allows gun owners to mount their iPhone or iPod Touch to a firearm and use it as a sight with a heads-up display that shows real-time data on their surroundings.  Read More

Trunk can be fixed in different positions to double as a stand as well as a charging cable

A typical iPhone charging cable is between half a meter and a meter in length, and has a slim cord that is prone to tangles and is not particularly hard-wearing. This combination is fine for most users and most situations, but Trunk offers an alternative to the norm.  Read More

iPhone-owning Google Glass owners may soon be able to get notifications ... as long as the...

Only a select few already have Google Glass in their hands ... or, rather, on their faces. But if you are an early owner of Glass, you’re much better off with an Android phone, as an iPhone can do little more than route calls to the smartglasses. That may soon change, though, with some help from the jailbreak community.  Read More

Despite numerous attempts throughout the years, smell-o-vision has failed to take off on the big or small screens. Japanese company Chaku Perfume Co. Ltd. is hoping to have better luck on the even smaller screen with its Chat Perf attachment for iPhone that allows messages or email notifications to be accompanied by a signature smell.  Read More

The XiStera includes a magnetic lens-mounting point, and a tripod mount

Over the past few years, we’ve seen iPhone attachments that let you do things like prop your phone up, attach a lens, or even use it as a bottle opener. The problem is, you can generally only put one of those attachments on your phone at a time. The XiStera, however, combines a whopping eight functions in a single gadget.  Read More

ScoreCleaner Notes turns melodies into notation at the touch of a button

The Kinsa Smart Thermometer in use

When someone is feeling sick, you take their temperature to see if they’re running a fever. That’s the way it’s been for decades. However, all that a regular thermometer will tell you is their body temperature – it won’t tell you what they might have, or what you should do. The Kinsa Smart Thermometer, while not quite a medical tricorder, is designed to do those things.  Read More
