Every week we’re on the hunt for new and unique gadgets and this time around we found an electric screwdriver with a unique twist, a new home theater system from Sonos, an updated new look for a simple music app, plus others.

Black and Decker Gyro
Black & Decker’s new rechargeable screwdriver packs a gyroscope making it easier to install and retract screws. Twist left and right to control speed and intensity. The Gyro is $40.


Sonos Playbar
Sonos makes excellent wireless speakers and the Playbar’s no exception. The modest sized system houses nine speakers hidden inside to make TV shows and movies sound better, with less wires.

The sleek design and great sound don’t come cheap. The Playbar costs $700.

But, it also links to other Sonos speakers and streams music from dozens of services, including the newly designed Slacker music service.


Slacker’s the easiest way listen to music. DJs make playlists in over 200 genres so you can fine tune them to your liking. Pay $4 a month and listen even without a wireless connection.


Hyperjuice Plug
Hyperjuice Plug is a spare battery that can recharge your iPhone up to 11 times, or extend your iPad by 9 hours.

Unlike other portable batteries, the Hyperjuice Plug comes with an outlet plug built-in. Just be ready to leave it in the wall for a while. It takes up to 12 hours to refuel. The Plug starts at $130.


Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Mini
Logitech is back with a new version of its popular ultrathin keyboard. This time for the ipad mini – it’s $79. It looks great and does a decent job of protecting the iPad Mini, but keep in mind the keyboard is a bit cramped to accommodate the smaller foot print. Be sure to try it in stores before you buy it.
