Anker is a well-known electronics company that is a personal favorite of mine. Over the past few years, I’ve used their portable battery chargers, cables, and various accessories to make sure My gadgets are never without a full charge. And soon there will be one more accessory that everyone needs to check out from them, the Liberty+ True Wireless Earphones.
As a runner, I am always looking for new and cool ways to be more visible. At the same time, I look for things that are convenient, comfortable and don’t require me to do much thinking at 4 AM when I get up to go running, so I was immediately interested in the LumaGlo Crossbelt.
Minimalism is in, and one of the best places to start scaling back on all the crap you own (or carry) is in your own back pocket. Rather than carrying a wallet stuffed with bills, receipts, cards, and who knows what else, you could be carrying a PITAKA New, a magnetic modular Carbon Fiber Wallet.
If you enjoy listening to music on headphones, but you don’t want the bother of bringing your phone along while you do it, STREAMZ Voice Controlled Smart Streaming Headphones might be just what you’ve been waiting for.
Last year, I stumbled upon the Hybrx PC from Azpen Innovation. It’s similar to the Jide Ultratablet I reviewed, but it’s more like a laptop; the price was only $89, so I put money down on what would turn out to be the first product and last Kickstarter product I will ever support, due to the lack of support.
If you’re looking for a product that has so many uses for many first-world problems that we face today, you should really check out the MultiCinch by MUTDUT.
We’re going to get this out of the way at the start: Mokase is a terrible idea. Truly awful. I want to believe it’s a joke, or the punchline to a bad joke, but it is real…someone sat down and designed a phone case that brews coffee. And it comes with a little keychain sized portable cup, because of course it does.
One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Pool season is coming up fast, and so are a lot of holidays. If the special people in your life likes to enjoy music outdoors, then they are going to love the new WOW-SOUND waterproof speaker. Available on Indiegogo for as low as $150, the WOW-SOUND is one versatile, excellent sounding, long-lasting Bluetooth speaker.
You may be following my experience with the PicoBrew Pico; if so, then you know that I was able to brew beer on the countertop of my kitchen without much trouble. I’ll have an update on my homebrewing adventures soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share news on the PicoBrew Pico Model C, new on Kickstarter today.
When I was a kid, I kept a diary. It locked with a cheap brass closure, and my brother soon figured out how to pick it. I wasn’t writing state secrets or scandalous notes, but it was a private space for me to ruminate, and it was easily violated. If I’d had an FPLife Lockbook, things would have been different.
Are you a fidgeter? Does the expression “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” fit you to a T? Do you need a mindless plaything in your hands while you speak on the phone? If so, the Fidget Cube is for you. A successful Kickstarter project, Raina backed the campaign and got each of us one.
If you’re looking for a great way to juice and “eat clean”, you should check out the JUISIR by iTaste, an innovative cold-press juicer that will make sure that you stick to that New Year resolution you made a month ago.
If you or your children have a small handheld pet at home, but don’t have a place for that pet to play within your home, then you should check out Multipet’s Pop-Up Pet Playland.
ZTE has started off the week by announcing their spec for the ZTE Hawkeye, a mid-range smartphone device available through a campaign on Kickstarter.
Innerexile and STC Optical & Chemical have joined forces to develop the OpticPro, a curved edge glass screen protector that blocks up 40% of the harmful blue light emitted by your iPhone 7. The OpticPro boasts 9H hardness that prevents scratching, is anti-smudge, anti-glare, and easy to install. Preorder yours now starting at $31 on Kickstarter.
Kickstarter is an interesting marketplace. On the one hand, it sometimes produces truly interesting products, but it also attracts companies who interpret Kickstarter success as an excuse to shoot for the moon (cough, Pebble, cough), as well as companies that see Kickstarter as a source of easy money, with no intention of delivering exactly as promised. Juicies cables are rapidly looking like the latter.
It may not be on most people’s wish lists, but I’ve been hoping that Apple would give the iPhone wireless charging capabilities for years. After all, many Android phones have it, and automakers are starting to include chargers for those phones in their cars. But for iPhones? No joy. The Aircharge Keyring may be a good stopgap in the meantime.
I’m terrible at estimating distances and dimensions, which is why I have to keep a measuring tape nearby when doing any reviews. InstruMMents, a company founded by the creators of Misfit Shine, is introducing 01 this morning; it is the world’s first dimensioning instrument. 01 captures, logs, and shares dimensions when it is rolled over straight or contoured objects.
I ordered a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus, and I went into it knowing that in time I would probably see more than a few scratches on my otherwise beautiful phone. The new Naked Case on Kickstarter uses the same tough film used to protect exotic sports cars to protect your iPhone from scratches. Check it out …
I’ve reviewed several Jackery devices in the past; they have been excellently made, and I am still using them. Jackery has a Kickstarter campaign going on now for their most ambitious device yet — the Jackery Power Pro, a 578Wh Solar Ready Outdoor Generator.
