Mega Tiny Corporation is Huge in Innovative Technology

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Mega Tiny CorporationTechnology is full of fun and interesting products. Some companies focus on a single product category, where Mega Tiny Corporation focuses on innovation in general. One idea is a cell phone case designed to stick to any smooth surface allowing hands-free freedom. It will not stick to clothes or purses. There are different attachments available, allowing it to be used as a mirror or with a wallet backing. Another option is a bottle opener for the party person. When a new phone is purchased, you can re-use the accessories so you don’t need to purchase a new specialty case.

Another innovative idea is the PowerBulb. This is a source of power for your mobile accessories. There is a charging station in the base of the LED bulb . The lamp is always on for power, but you can turn off the bulb and still have the necessary power for your needs.

The cell phone case can be purchased individually or in a mega-pack. They are available now for $29.95 from the website. The PowerBulb sells for $39.99.

Proof: the Wearable Warning System for Mind-Free Partying

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

ProofImagine a product that not only monitors your alcohol intake but also lets you know when it will wear off. Proof does just that and is packaged in a smart little bracelet that no one would suspect its function. This product is a wearable alcohol detection system. It is based on a dime-sized sensor on the back of the bracelet.

Proof is designed to be synced with your iOS and Android phone. It measures a number of chemicals coming through your skin, and is able to deduce your blood alcohol based on those readings. Once the application has that data, it will combine it with your height and weight to determine when you’ll be below the threshold you entered.

Proof will be available through crowdfunding soon at a pricepoint of $100-$150.
