Continuing our series of Unknown tech gadgets that aren’t too common, today we bring products for the minimalist.
We’ve had discussions at TechUntold and we believe products can be smarter, leaner and more useful. Minimalism is a concept where less is more. Apple’s design philosophy resides in this quote from Leonardo Da Vinci, which goes like “Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication”.
When products are simple, clear and can do a job very well, then minimalism is attained. For the sake of our article, we’ll tweak the meaning of minimalism a bit! We’ll showcase some products that minimalists will like because of its simplicity, small size and overall usefulness!
We are all photographers because we are part of the Social Media generation. How many photography pages have cropped up in the past few years? Thousands would not be an understatement. In a world where capturing every single moment and presenting it on Social Media has become the norm, the downsides are lugging around a DSLR everywhere you go to take those picture perfect shots. To counter this encumbrance, a new product called ollo-clip has been invented.
Ollo clip is a portable and attachable clip for your iPhone that amplifies the power of the iPhone camera. It uses a series of powerful lenses that expand the capabilities of the already very good iPhone camera. This essentially makes your iPhone almost equivalent to a DSLR camera.
