05/16/2013, Is there nothing that the Arduino chipset cannot do? I guess if you were to answer the question on a purely technical basis, it should not be too difficult to do so, but just to get an idea on how flexible Arduino can be, how about controlling lamps in your home using it? A Canadian design company known as Fabule has come up with their latest “baby” known as Clyde, […]
05/16/2013, In the digital age, we’re sure you find it difficult to focus on a number of important tasks on a regular basis as studying for an exam or being able perform a task at work without looking at your phone is nearly impossible. But a new high-tech headband is being introduced as a way to help not only track, but improve your focus. The headband is called Melon and is […]
05/15/2013, Now this is an alarm clock that techies would love to own.
05/15/2013, I know that we have seen our fair share of weird ideas appear on Kickstarter before, but seriously – a Glowing Plant? Isn’t this kind of strange science supposed to be relegated to the realm of witch doctors and shamans? The Glowing Plant would basically do according to its name, where this project is meant to use synthetic biology in an attempt to create plants which are capable of glowing […]
05/15/2013, Video games tend to be met with a lot of misconceptions, from parents, to the government, to teachers and society in general, which is why we guess it is important to make sure that society is educated about video games and that games are more than just blood, sex, and senseless violence, which seems to be the general idea that many people have. This is why a group of people […]
05/13/2013, There has been some pretty zany projects in the past that we have seen on Kickstarter, and all of them are vying for the attention (and of course, money) of the masses in order to make the project a reality when a sufficient amount of money has been collected. The thing is, here is one particularly “crazy” idea – where a certain Federico Zannier intends to do something unprecedented, by […]
05/09/2013, Yesterday we mentioned the Keyprop accessory which is basically a kickstand for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4S and other smartphones. We thought it was pretty clever that such a small device, small enough to fit on a keychain, could support a multitude of devices without having to resort to different models. If you thought that was impressive, another Kickstarter project by the name of XiStera might blow you away.
05/08/2013, Many of us take stuff like piped water and an uninterrupted supply of electricity for granted, but for those who are living in developing countries, there are some who happen to live without having constant access to such simple and essential creature comforts. What is one to do, then? The Mwezi Light is a spanking new project that intends to collect the necessary amount of funds over on Kickstarter, and […]
05/08/2013, While there are kickstands that let you prop up your phone or tablet, they can hardly be called portable, at least unless you are planning to bring a bag with you. However there is a new Kickstarter project called Keyprop in which the goal is to create a kickstand for your iPhone that could easily fit into your pocket! As you can see in the image above, the Keyprop is […]
05/07/2013, Don’t you just hate it when you’re working on an assignment or a report due the next day, and all of a sudden there is a blackout? While word documents are pretty smart when it comes to saving backup copies and recovering documents, the same can’t really be said about the internet. After all with the power out, so if your router and your internet access is where BRCK comes […]
05/03/2013, The cloud does seem to be a rather interesting place to be at these days, and with Skydog, you would be able to gain far more control over your household’s Wi-Fi use as well as home network without missing a beat, thanks to it being a cloud-based solution. This Kickstarter project has already managed to raise the relevant amount of funds – and beyond to be realized. The Skydog Wi-Fi […]
05/02/2013, We talked about the Stinky Footboard in the past, where it could very well be one of the far more unique gaming accessories that the world would come across in its time. The Stinky Footboard did manage to make its way across as a Kickstarter project, and we are pleased to report that this project has proved to be a success, having raised $79,562 in the process. It is tipped […]
04/29/2013, There are apps and books on how to mix a cocktail, but sometimes some descriptions make it a bit hard for you to get the right taste. For example how much exactly are we supposed to know what a “splash” is? For the more experienced bartender, this is probably not a problem, but for those of us mixing drinks for the first time, the results are usually hit or miss. […]
04/24/2013, Are you one of the new generation office drones who love nothing better than to cycle to work? Not only do you get to work out along the way, it also helps reduce the amount of greenhouse emissions, not to mention help keep more vehicles of the road. Well, cyclists too, like normal motorists, might venture into unfamiliar territory once in a while, which is why they too, have GPS […]
