Here’s my mounted MagHive; it’s attractive, informative, very handy, and it’s expandable! You can add as many modules to it as you’d like. If you need more Magnetic NFC modules (maybe a different color for every family member?), you can add those. If you want more charging modules for other Qi-enabled phones, you can add them.

The Pitaka MagHive is smart, easy to operate, and so, so handy. If you want a clever and smart way to keep your keys, wallet, and phone handy, the Pitaka MagHive is a great solution.

The Pitaka MagHive starts at $217, which includes the Magnetic Display module and the Magnetic NFC module. As tested, my kit was $295 which includes the three modules, the MagTag for keys, and the MagTag for wallets. MagHive is collecting backers right now on Kickstarter

What I Like: A central location to keep and charge Qi-enabled mobile phones, keys, wallets, and other small magnetized items; Display tells you the weather and gives reminders; Notification of changing weather before you go outside; Notification when added family members arrive or leave home; Securely mounts to your wall (or other surface) with either screws or double-sided 3M tape

What Needs Improvement: The current app is a little buggy, but I suspect all will be ironed out by the time MagHive ships

Judie Lipsett Stanford
I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
