We have not reviewed a lot of products that are designed to jumpstart the battery in your car, and both of them are called the Jumpstart. One was from myCharge and the other was from Limitless Innovations, but this one, the Supercap2, comes form Autowit, a company that I have not heard of before, but they have a special Kickstarter project that was sent to me. What makes … [Read more...] about SuperCap 2 from Autowit
I've seen some really interesting educational toys devoted to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), but I do have to admire one from a company called Technology Will Save Us. This is is the Arcade Coder, and it may look like a 12 x 12 board of multi-colored LED buttons, because that is what it is. All right, I am clearly under-selling this, but … [Read more...] about Arcade Coder Review
Not to be confused with Thor's half- brother, this Loki is the high-tech gadget to make your grilling great! This gadget looks like it's straight out of a sci-fi movie, but it's actually a useful tool for cooking. This sphere with a glowing ring is a meat thermometer that works with your smart phone to tell you when your meat is exactly the right temperature. What's in … [Read more...] about Loki the Smart Wi-Fi Meat Thermometer Review
This KickStarter funded project was sent to us to review from [FUSE] chicken. This company makes a variety of charging cables, travel cables, phone docks, and stands. The product we were sent to review is called BOBINE, and is touted as "the world's most flexible iPhone dock." Unfortunately, as we don't have iPhones, and the BOBINE is designed specifically for … [Read more...] about Our Review of the BOBINE Flexible iPhone Dock
Considering that the younger generation is addicted to tech, it is up to the older one to teach them how to make better tech. This is why there is such a push for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mechanics) education, and there have been a lot of educational toys to help with this. The issue is that many of these educational toys are muy expensivo. As someone … [Read more...] about Project 475 Kits Will Technologically Prepare the Next Generation
I'm not certain if I have ever used the whole "Kickstarter Spotlight" in our headline, but I think it is helpful to put some Kickstarter tech projects in the spotlight. This Bots Alive thing is definitely right up my alley. I figured that it was better to just put the video here instead of showing some pictures of it. You can see that it uses the Hexbug Spider, and this … [Read more...] about Kickstarter Spotlight: Bots Alive, and it will do just that!
It looks like we have another great Kickstarter project, and I believe that this one will be receiving its funding. WeKast is a pocket-sized device that allows you to present content straight from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop to any screen. There is a video on the Kickstarter page that kind of over-dramatizes the situation. You know, when you have to deliver a … [Read more...] about WeKast: The Plug and Cast Solution
So, this is a review of a watch, and it is not a smart one. This doesn't meant it is a dumb one! This is by Vintage Soda, why soda? It's bubbly, it's sweet, it's delicious! Actually, it uses the style of vintage soda, which is...very smart. Yes, normally I don't cover a regular watch here on this site because watches are kind of passe, really. Most people don't even … [Read more...] about Vintage Soda Watch
I recently had a chance to get to know a company called iCreation, and I would highly recommend checking out their products if you haven't already. They now have a Kickstarter project that is called the speeC-EZ. In case you are stumbling on the pronunciation, it is pronounced "Speakeasy". You know, those places during Prohibition that sold illegal alcoholic beverages. … [Read more...] about The speeC-EZ from iCreation
Remember yesterday when I discussed the really cool waterproof battery case from Mophie? Well, that might be a thing of the past thanks to this Nikola Labs product. According to the Nikola Labs website, "Nikola Technology efficiently converts RF signals like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and LTE into DC power using its proprietary energy harvesting circuit. The result is usable … [Read more...] about Nikola Labs has iPhone case that charges from the air
Every once in a while, you'll see a Kickstarter project where I have to go: Hmmm. Such is the case with the the PhoneDrone, an apparatus for your phone that allows it to become an autonomous aerial camera. Now here is the first thing that I asked. Why would you want to put your smartphone on a flying drone? Not only are you throwing your phone to the wind, but to me, it … [Read more...] about PhoneDrone turns a smartphone into a personal drone
It's very strange that in an age where all cars need brake lights, bikes do not. This could change with the Lucidbrake, a smart wireless bicycle brake light. At first I thought this was some brakelight that would attach to some mechanism on the bike so the moment you hit a brake, the light will go on. Actually, it is not like that at all, for the brake light will go on … [Read more...] about LucidBrake is a brake light for the bike!
Yes, I have reviewed a lot of cases on this blog, and I think it is interesting that someone has made one known as The Greatest Case. So what can I say, is it really? Well, it has lot of competition with Otterbox, Lifeproof, and other names associated with protecting ones mobile devices. Perhaps what makes it interesting is why it is the Greatest Case. Here's a clue: … [Read more...] about The Greatest Case, a Kickstarter project that needs to live up to its name
"This is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats." So says the Kickstarter page for Exploding Kittens- a game illustrated by the famous internet cartoonist, Matthew Inman(The Oatmeal). Here's a video to explain the game better than I can: This Kickstarter project set records meeting their goal of $10,000 in 20 … [Read more...] about Exploding Kittens- The Most Backed Kickstarter Project of all Time
You know what is funny? Power used to be synonymous with batteries, but I'm guessing that the battery business went down since smartphones came about. After all, with an app for that, all you need is to charge your phone. Hence the rise of the mobile battery business. I'm going to discuss a new type of mobile battery later this week, but for now, I'm going to discuss the … [Read more...] about Plan V can use a 9 Volt Battery to charge your phone
