The new collection allows Apple consumers to keep the latest iPhone devices safe and secure without compromising style. The standout cases join a wide selection of user-friendly XtremeMac products that recently premiered at the prestigious IFA trade show in Berlin and that will be available in the U.S. in September 2012.

Highlights of the collection include a first-of-its-kind armband-style iPhone device case with LED lights to protect active wearers while running, walking or biking at night; an integrated viewing stand-styled case for watching videos or FaceTime® applications; and vibrant new colors and designs.

The high-performance, lightweight XtremeMac Sportwrap™ LED is an armband-styled case designed for the active user. Made of technologically advanced moisture wicking mesh, the adjustable armband fits most arm sizes and helps protect the iPhone device from moisture while keeping it securely in place while you’re moving. Integrated LED lights provide safety while running, walking or biking at night. The unique two-piece design allows for users to separate the electronic components from the arm band to allow for easy cleaning.

Summary of features:

  • LED lights for safety while biking, running or walking at night
  • Easy access to device controls with clear screen cover.
  • Lightweight design provides comfortable fit
  • Adjustable strap fits most arm sizes

A second case, the XtremeMac Sportwrap, is a lightweight sport band for the new iPhone and iPod Touch devices. This Sportwrap band features a unique design to keep your device securely in place as well as many of the same features as the XtremeMac Sportwrap LED band, but without the lights.

The XtremeMac Microshield™ Stand is an innovative new design that transforms the case into a sturdy viewing stand for your device. The integrated stand can be extended to prop up your iPhone device for watching videos or FaceTime applications, and then folds back in seamlessly when not in use. Made of hard durable plastic, the case effectively protects your iPhone device from scratches, dust and dirt.

Summary of features:

  • Seamlessly integrated viewing stand for watching videos or FaceTime
  • Durable hard plastic case protects iPhone device from scratches, dust and dirt

iPhone fans preferring a slightly flashier style will gravitate toward the XtremeMac Microshield Fade case. Available in a large variety of colors, this creatively styled case features the latest gradient-color trend with the primary color gradually fading into an array of complementary hues.

  • Full access to switches and jacks

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer.

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
