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.
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.
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.

A company by the name of PERI Audio is debuting their latest edition of their Duo Family with iPhone Speakers and charging cases starting with the Duo Slim for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
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.
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.
There are plenty of multi-tools on the market, but none quite like the MSTRKey, a twenty-in-one stainless steel tool for your key ring. The MSTRKey is practically the same size as the key to your home, the difference is it serves a host of different functions that the user never actually thinks about until they are needed and it’s too late. Why not have this everywhere you go? With functions…
I run a cattle ranch in West Texas; most of our community’s livelihood relies upon the weather, so when we ask each other “how much rain did you get?”, it’s not just idle chit-chat. Having an accurate way to measure what’s happening with the weather at all times is important, and that’s why I’m excited about the BloomSky weather station system.
If you’ve read our reviews about Monowear’s Apple Watch accessories, but you were wondering if they’d ever put out a stand so you could charge your precious smartwatch and your iPhone, then you’re in luck.
Volant Sound is hitting Kickstarter hard with their super unique headphones; a three-in-one design that combines wireless Bluetooth headphones, wired over-the-ear headphones, and wired in-ear headphones. Instead of buying three different headphones for all of your listening situations, you can buy one set that morphs like a Transformer to give you exactly what you need. Pledge today to reserve yours!
Soylent is a very unfortunate/amusingly named meal replacement drink that has the added cachet of being crowdfunded via Kickstarter; basically, it’s the hacking and disruption movement coming for your food. The company says a steady diet of Soylent could replace your meals, as it is formulated to be nutritionally balanced. I had a free sample, and here’s what I thought:
