BodyGuardz uses an aluminum bezel to tackle the iPhone 6 screen protector problem

The gently curved glass edges of the iPhone 6/Plus screens feel absolutely luxurious but are a nightmare for screen protector companies. Compounding this issue is the fact that rigid tempered glass is now the preferred material for iPhone screen protection.

Some companies have taken a stab at solving this issue, but at CES we were able to go hands-on with BodyGuardz’s upcoming solution.

“The Crown” combines BodyGuardz’s Pure tempered glass screen protector with a finely crafted anodized aluminum rim. The glass protects the entire flat surface of an iPhone 6/Plus screen, while the thin aluminum bezel covers its curved edges. During our brief demonstration we were impressed with how both of these pieces came together to create a seamless solution.

The aluminum material will come in different colors when it’s released next month including gold, silver, and black. The iPhone 6 version is slated to cost $34.95, with the bigger iPhone 6 Plus version coming in at $5 more.

I’ve been looking for a serious MacBook dock setup for quite some time, but really have been disappointed in the current offerings. Henge Docks displayed its Horizontal Dock as a prototype last year, but it’s now available to order and I’m pretty excited about it…

Scanadu cofounder Sam De Brouwer demonstrates the Scout and Scanaflo

At CES this week I met with a very interesting company called Scanadu which makes two interesting healthcare products that connect with the iPhone…

Scanadu-scoutThe Scanadu Scout (pictured, right) is a little electronic device designed by Yves Béhar that you touch to your forehead for a few seconds. Almost instantly, physiological parameters, including temperature, heart rate, blood oxygenation, respiratory rate, ECG, and diastolic/systolic blood pressure are sent to an app on your iPhone which logs these measurements and alerts users to anomalies and deviations which may be cause for heath concerns.

The Scout closed a $1.6M Indigogo funding round in 2013 and is still trying to push the product through the FDA as it tries to get deliveries to customers.

Perhaps more interesting however, Scnadu introduced its new “Scanaflo” device at CES 2015 which is a home urinalysis apparatus that uses your iPhone’s camera to image a set of colors strips. expand full story
