Nyon Estylo

Nyon EstyloWhen we think of technology, we think of wires buzzing and high speed information traveling through cables and connections that we can’t even see. It’s all fascinating, but what if we merged technology with basics that we are already familiar with and materials that we can fully trust and rely on? NYON is a company that is doing just that by creating wooden styluses that not only work, but that look good too!

The Estylo, a.k.a. The Pencil of Now, is a wooden dual tip magnetic stylus that was designed to work with the iPhone, iPad, Android, and any other touch screen device. The tip works in a variety of angles and it has been designed so that it will never scratch your screen. Aside from the super sleek design and functionality that the stylus offers, it comes in brilliant and vibrant color choices.

Most all styluses work and look the same. Chances are, you’ve come across or maybe even own a circular stylus that is heavy and made of metal or a cheap plastic material. Why settle for the same thing that everyone else has when you can own something special and unique. Stand out and get a product worth having. It’s stylish, sleek, and does its job.

Diela Maharanie Makes Magical Art

When redecorating a space, be it an office or room in your home, you always need to consider the walls. Walls are boring on their own, but luckily there are tons of new artist to choose from when picking out the perfect piece of art for your wall. One of those artist by the name of Diela Maharanie is making an impact on the world of art with her creative tones of color and imaginative scenes that are depicted in her work.

Her art is not average, it possesses a creative quality that makes the viewer of the art become engulfed within the blocky chunks of color and precisely drawn characters. One look at her art and you will quite possibly want your entire wall to be covered in Diela Maharanie originals.

The patterns that are used in her art are nice and vibrant, yet they still only just add to the overall beauty of the art instead of consume the piece. It’s rare to find an artist who can incorporate elements that are borderline supernatural and those of the real world so well.

So if you are looking for some art, I suggest you consider Diela Maharanie’s work. You are sure to love it, and it is sure to love your walls. Make note of this artist on the rise because I have no doubt that we will be seeing great things from her in the future.

UZO Umbrellas

One doesn’t generally take into consideration what kind of umbrella they are using in todays market. There is such a problem with mass production of cheap quality products, that the most functional are left unnoticed. UZO Umbrellas is making a large impact in changing that. The way you see umbrellas will never be the same. Think about it, an umbrella is quite possibly one of the most useful accessories to have when leaving the house on a dreary day, but it can be a frustrating one if you are using a cheaply made one.

Taking the umbrella a step further, UZO Umbrellas is turning this useful accessory into a fashion statement with their brillant line of colors to choose from. One major feature that makes a UZO Umbrella better than most all others is it’s ability to protect the user from rain completely by leaving no part of the area above your head exposed. It was brilliantly thought of and conceived by Ronald Obmaces, a fantastic designer and engineer.

What other umbrella company with those features can boast about owning 24 patents worldwide? None come to mind. It’s quite easy to see why the UZO Umbrella would be a magnificent choice to keep you dry and looking better than anyone else holding an umbrella on a rainy day.

Pottermore

When Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published, I don’t think J.K. Rowling anticipated how popular it would be. Readers were introduced to a fantasy world that was full of adventure, friendship, and the ongoing conflict of good vs. evil. Her creation and our imaginations were brought to the big screen when Warner Brothers began filming the movies. Even though the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released in 2007, fans still had the movies to look forward to. But with the last movie, the realization finally set in that this was our last time being with Harry. I’ll admit, I felt as if my childhood was finally ending. I had just turned eighteen and I was starting a new chapter of my life. When J.K. Rowling announced that she was starting a new project called Pottermore, I was thrilled.

Pottermore has been in production since 2009 and is currently only available to those who gained early access and they act as beta testers. I am fortunate enough to be one of the beta testers. The website will sell e-books as well as audio books to all seven of the Harry Potter books. That’s not all Pottermore will have for fans, J.K. Rowling is releasing more detailed information and back stories on the characters we have come to know and love. You go through each chapter and learn new things about the world of Harry Potter. Some highlights of the first book are getting your very own wand and getting sorted into one of the Houses at Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. You also get to brew potions and attend Dueling Club. Much like the students at Hogwarts, you will be able to earn points and lose points for your house. Not all books are available at once to explore. There is also no set date to unlock the next book.  Pottermore is available to everyone sometime in October 2011.
