After successfully funding the first Flyshark foldable keyboard on Kickstarter in 2014 their Mobile-Phone-Sized, full-sized QWERTY keyboard supporting Android, iOS, Windows, the 1st version Flyshark foldable BT keyboard sold over 20,000 pcs. Here is Flyshark's 2nd version foldable BT keyboard with a more fixed structure when unfolded so it's usable on the laps, with better battery life up to 2 month when used every day, only 1 hour charging needed, the second generation Flyshark keyboard Bluetooth is automatically powered-on when opened. Flyshark also optimized the ID and mechanic design, also available in new different colors including Pink, white, black for keyboard; gold, pink, purple, white, black, silver for housing. The final mass production for this new foldable Flyshark keyboard is ready for August, minimum order quantity starts at 1K, at $5 more than the 1st version.
Finding good noise-canceling headphones out of Shenzhen factories is rare. Flyshark presents their affordable noise-cancelling headphones with Microphone. It has a nice in-ear design and a shiny circular metal surface on the earphone. There is a switch to turn on/off the Noise-Cancellation and an LED indicator on the Control Module Midway. This type of earphones is for listening to music, podcasts and to watch videos comfortably in airplanes, trains, buses, subways and any other crowded public place. They may reduce noise, I will soon test them to see how they compare with the expensive 1st–Class noise-canceling headphone brands like BOSE selling at over $300, JVC selling at over $150 and Sony. Huawei also has Noise-Canceling headphones priced at over $120 with 2 hours battery life. The Flyshark Noise-Cancelling earphones start selling at $30 with 8 hours of battery life. If the quality of the noise cancelation is good, Flyshark may have a best seller right here!

MediaTek CrossMount is a new standard for sharing hardware and software resources between different consumer electronics devices in the home, to be available in late 2015 for MediaTek-based Android devices. Based on the UPnP protocol, CrossMount connects compatible devices wirelessly, using either a home Wi-Fi network or a Wi-Fi Direct connection, to allow one to seamlessly access the features of the other. So you can start watching streaming video on the living room TV, for example, then switch it to your tablet when you move to another room, or use your TV’s speakers for a hands-free phone call with your smartphone. The CrossMount Alliance for MediaTek partners, customers and developers tries to make developing CrossMount applications easy, MediaTek says that many brands and developers are already on board.
