Like it or not, we're in the age of technology. I don't know about you, but I've dropped my phone, ruined cords, and scratched screens in my purse. Cell phones, tablets, laptops, and iPods are expensive so you want to make sure they last to make it worth your money. What better way to protect and elongate the life of your devices than with paracord!
Crafting is the perfect way to get away from the screen for a while to make something you'll use constantly. In a time when far too many people are addicted to texting, wifi, and apps it's good to unplug for a while and do something that gives your eyes a rest from pixels. Here are 4 things you can make to incorporate paracord into your technology.
#1 Wrap Your Headphones with Paracord
There are essentially 2 ways of doing this option. The second option (right) does require you to cut the headphones, while the first does not. But they are both great for a number of reasons:
1) protects your charger cord
2) makes them tangle free
3) looks so much cooler
The version on the left was made with this weave:

#2 Make a Phone Holder
This one is especially nice for those of us who carry cell phones in our purses. Even better for those of us that carry our life in our purse. My purse is more like a small suitcase that has everything I have even a 1% chance of needing that day. A paracord phone pouch protects my phone from the dangers of my purse.

#3 Computer Carrier
This is a very nice computer carrier that could also be modified for iPads and Tablets. It won't protect your laptop very well, but certainly will make it much easier to carry and does give it a small barrier between the ground and the computer if you were to drop it.

#4 USB Charger Bracelet
