REVIEW: the “Unpocket” from @the_affair & @zoltancsaki

I’ve had a chance to spend a couple of weeks with the Unpocket, something I backed on Kickstarter what seems like a million years ago, and I have to say it was worth the wait.

Billed as “Simple privacy management for the under-surveillance society” it may seem a little silly to some. The Unpocket disconnects your device from RFID, GPS, WiFi and Cell. No, I’m not concerned about the NSA or CIA tracking my every move (yes I am), but I am in love with the notion of going radio silent.

I recently got an Apple Watch, and I’ll admit it’s a little rude and distracting to be constantly glancing at my wrist while in a meeting. Now, I place my phone in the Unpocket during a conversation and consciously tune out my alerts. It instantly mutes my watch and leaves me focused on the people I’m with.

Pictured above with an iPhone 6 and a Macbook, it’s the perfect size for most devices, and can double as a passport holder or even a simple wallet. The fact that it’s water resistant also makes it great for travel.

No, I’m not paranoid (yes I am) but the Unpocket is a lovely addition to my computer bag that sends a thoughtful message to the people I WANT to be surveilling me.

Did you know “tea towels” are a thing with museums? It’s true!

In celebration of the “Play Time” opening at the Toledo Museum of Art, and the release of Faesthetic 14, the TMA is selling an extremely limited edition Tea Towel with art by Paul Octavious. It’s amazing.
