Lenovo touts its IdeaPad YOGA as the first multimode notebook with a 360-degree flip-and-fold design. YOGA offers four usage modes: notebook, tablet, stand and tent. YOGA measures 0.67 inches at 3.1 pounds and supports eight hours of battery life with up to 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD.

Square Mouse

The Logitech Cube functions as a pocket-size mouse and presenter. As a mouse, it scrolls when a user swipes a finger along the main panel, similar to a touchscreen smartphone. Users lift the device in the air to use it in presenter mode. The Cube’s 2.4 GHz connectivity lets users connect up to six compatible devices.

Power Up

Powerbag backpacks, messenger bags and slings charge mobile devices right in the bag. The universal smart-charging system powers mobile devices that can be charged using a USB cable. Powerbag’s internal, rechargeable and removable battery plugs into any standard wall outlet with the included AC adapter to recharge. Connect up to four mobile devices at a time using the pre-routed connectors.
