Keep Warm with the HOMI Pro Jacket

The HOMI Jacket is currently on Kickstarter. The project has already passed its goal, but there are still a few days left for those who want to get in on this project at substantial savings compared to what it will cost at retail. I was sent an early version and am pleased to share some initial thoughts.


Flux Beamo Is a Powerful, Compact, and Affordable Laser Cutter

You know the feeling you get when something just works right out of the box?  That’s the feeling I got when I did my first engraving with the new Flux beamo laser cutter and engraver.  The relatively small footprint beamo uses frickin’ laser beams at different intensities and speeds to engrave or cut multiple materials for DIY projects.



Robo Wunderkind Has Coding, LEGOs and More!

One of the coolest things about being a kid in 2019 is the tremendous number of opportunities to learn more about coding. It helps kids learn about logical reasoning, plus it helps them understand the basics of computers. Robo Wunderkind is aiming to combine coding with LEGO to make an even more fun educational tool!



AvoSeedo Lets You Grow Your Own Avocado Tree (Toast Not Included)

I’ve never really given much thought to the seed in an avocado, except to the extent that I’m always worried I’ll lose a finger doing that whole “chop it with the knife and twist” move. But apparently, you can use the seed to grow your own avocado tree. This is normally somewhat complicated, but AvoSeedo 2.0 aims to make it both easy and fun to grow your own pet avocado…



Black Ember’s FORGE Backpack Is the 3-in-1 Everyday-Carry That You Need

If your Instagram algorithm has been telling you about a cool backpack company by the name of Black Ember, or you’ve ever checked out backpack reviews, you know that Black Ember’s Citadel bag is one of Chase Reeves favorite bags. I’m currently reviewing that bag now, but Black Ember has an even newer backpack that’s 3-in-1 functionality sets a new bar for what to expect in your everyday carry.



The 30° Ruler Is the Premium Ruler You Never Knew You Needed

Orangered Life created the 30° Ruler as part of their effort when creating their other Kickstarter project Foliage and realized the limitations inherent in rulers available to them. Some of the better products are those which are simple and yet address some basic problems efficiently and that’s what the 30° Ruler aims to do.


Artisan Revere Chef Knife Slices Through Their Kickstarter Goal

Have you ever heard of Super Steel? Well, me either, but supposedly it makes for amazing kitchen knives! Artisan Revere has crafted a chef knife using Elmax Super Steel that was designed and manufactured in the USA and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. The Artisan Revere Chef Knife has already surpassed its Kickstarter funding goal!


LapDogg Is a Nearly NSFW Phone Stand on Kickstarter

Kickstarter is sort of like the internet’s science fair. You wade through a lot of random stuff to find some cool ideas, but every once in a blue moon you see a project and think “Was no one around to intervene here?” That’s my take on the LapDogg, and not just because it has a weird extra G.








SpyFinder Pro Hidden Camera Detector Seeks Kickstarter Funding

If you walk into my living room, you will see a small white WiFi camera sitting on a shelf. It lets me check in on my Goldendoodle Nava when we’re out. These days, however, many WiFi cameras (often called Spy Cameras) are hidden from view. That’s where the SpyFinder Pro Hidden Camera Detector comes in. It is seeking funding on Kickstarter, and it works!



Anyone Can Be a Brew Master with the PicoU — Even You!

If you read my review series on the PicoBrew S, then you probably thought that being able to brew beer on your kitchen counter was pretty cool — but that price tag, though! $799 is a lot to invest if you’re just a hobby brewer, but now Pico has come out with a sub-$200 solution for everyone, the Pico U.
