IOGEAR Sharing Station provides access to USB devices over WiFi: "WiFi and USB have both become inexpensive and ubiquitous connectivity solutions, so the idea of exploiting them both at the same time a single device makes sense. IOGEAR's latest take on the theme is its Wireless 4-Port USB Sharing Station, which allows up to four USB peripherals (external storage, camera, printer, etc.) to be shared over a WiFi network and in the process provides a recipe for an uncluttered desktop environment."

NuVinci Harmony brings automatic shifting to e-bikes: "Fallbrook Technologies released the NuVinci Continuously Variable Planetary (CVP) N170 transmission for bicycles in 2007. The rear hub-based system does away with distinct, defined gears, it's sealed against dirt and other contaminants (unlike a derailleur), and it allows riders to change drive transmission ratios even when standing still."
Bluelounge MiniDock iPhone/iPod wall charger doubles as a display-docking station: "Charging an iPhone or iPod when out and about can often leave users taking advantage of any spare power outlet at hand. For those using the standard adapter and cable that came with said devices, this can sometimes mean leaving the units laying on the ground at the mercy of any big booted passersby."
Moto-Grip is designed to let motorcycle passengers hang on better: "If you've ever been the extra passenger on a racing or sport-touring motorcycle, then you'll know that it can be rather awkward. You typically sit higher than the rider, so you have to lean forward and down to grab them around the torso."
