Logitech announces a iPhone 5S case and magnetic car mount

If you're looking for a new iPhone case and a way to mount your phone in your car, Logitech might just have you covered. The company today announced its protection+ case and +trip (italics ours, annoying lowercase and plus-sign styling theirs) car air-conditioner mount for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.

The protection+ case is a polycarbonate shell with a good chunk of metal embedded in the back to make it compatible with Logitech's car mounts as well as bring the whole thing up to a military-standard 810 G for protection against drops from 5.9 feet.

The +trip mount clips on to your car air-conditioning mount, and the phone (with the protection+ case) is affixed via a fairly powerful magnet. It's a pretty good bond, as well, though you'll need to work to get the right angle. (And as always, maybe try to not fiddle too much with your phone in the car if you can help it.)

The case runs $34.99, and the magnetic mount is $24.99. Both are expected to be available in August.

Structure Sensor review - a Project Tango competitor for iOS

At CES we checked out the Structure Sensor, which aimed to provide 3D reconstructions of the real world on the iPad well before Google's Project Tango was announced. With this iPad attachment, you can quickly generate models of faces and objects, and also interact with those models in augmented reality apps. That means after a quick scan, you could play a game where you have to walk around real-world objects to reach virtual objectives with your iPad. Other, more practical use cases included scanning whole rooms to generate floor plans, or sending models off to 3D printers for reproduction. We got a chance recently to play with the Structure Sensor ahead of the September retail launch.
