posted May 8, 2013, 1:56 PM by Sallar Khorram   [ updated May 8, 2013, 1:57 PM ]

The Minimalist Keyring with Maximum Strength
Features and Benefits

Compact – Smaller than a pack of gum, our main goal from day 1. Our Unique 'S' design allows you to hold 4x the keys in half the space of a keyring. No thigh poke, no awkward buldge, and not noticeable in the tightest of jeans.

Universal – SmartKey will fit almost any key found at your local hardware store without any modification. To change or add a key, simply turn the post with a penny, add/change key, then re-tighten.

Customizable – Add anything you use throughout the day. From USB drives and barcode cards, to RFID chips and garage openers, our customers have attached them all. It also comes with a removable loop to attach remote car keys.

Expandable – We offer unique post extensions that can expand your SmartKey to hold any number of keys and accessories. We have had landlords and maintenance workers with up to 100 keys. Seriously.

Durable – SmartKey is ultra strong and can withstand anything your life throws at it. Designed with the toughest environment in mind, it has passed all the obnoxious testing we put it through with flying colors.

Silent – Eliminates any key jingle. Great for leaving early on a Friday or not waking a significant other.

Style – Whether you’re going for sleek, sporty, or flashy, SmartKey will free you from the boring keyring we've been stuck with for so long. It hides the jagged teeth while exposing the smooth back of the keys for easy access.

EMBRACE+, a Smart Piece of Wearable Technology

posted Apr 30, 2013, 1:08 PM by Sallar Khorram

The EMBRACE+ keeps you informed, while your smartphone stays in your pocket or purse!

    Nowadays smartphones affect every aspect of our personal and professional lives. We use it for organizing, planning and interacting with each other. But our busy lives require us to focus on work, activities and  obligations. We are afraid we miss important calls, messages, and reminders. We become restless and lack concentration on almost anything while we keep checking our phones. It happens to us every day all the time. With the EMBRACE+, those days are over!

    The EMBRACE+ is a smart piece of wearable technology that alerts you to changes in your environment. Through a combination of visual and tactile cues, the EMBRACE+ gives you the information you want to know - while your smartphone stays in your pocket or purse. It brings a smart and subtle change to our daily lifestyle as it keeps us connected to our phone no matter what we are doing, when we are doing it, and where we are at.
    Through a simple set-up of some basic parameters on the smartphone you already have, the EMBRACE+ will show you want you want, and when you want to know it. What it shows, how it displays your information, and how frequently you see the information is completely up to you.

Folding USB Solar Cell

posted Apr 30, 2013, 12:29 PM by Sallar Khorram   [ updated Apr 30, 2013, 12:40 PM ]

An inexpensive, easy to use, practical, every day solar USB system. For those of us not just preparing for the end of the world.

Solar Power Simplified

Solar power doesn't have to be complicated or expensive, yet that is what the market keeps throwing on the general public.  I've designed a very simple, low cost, easy to use fold out 5W Solar USB system.  No frills or thrills, just the basic USB power output that everyone needs to charge up their gadgets.

Background

For the past two years I've been designing and selling DIY solar USB kits. Cute little things that fit into an Altoids tin.  The problem that I kept running into is that my customers keep asking for more powerful charging setups. Hikers and campers wanted a system they could charge up during the day and then use at night, cyclists wanted a system that could keep their GPS units running all day long, and mission/relief groups wanted an inexpensive solar charger that worked with just about everything.  This stretched the limit of what I could make by hand or put together in a kit.  After working with some overseas manufacturers I came up with a simple solution that is not only easy to use, but insanely practical.
