This week in Kickstarterland – 2016-04-17

Welcome to another week in Kickstarterland. A total random collection of interesting projects popped up this week from robotic security and lawn mowers to self filling water bottles. A few of this weeks’ projects appear to be repeats of earlier projects. Maybe they will be more lucky than their predecessors.


Kick of the Week

Moon – This stunning moon globe has real and accurate craters and a simulated sun that makes them shine. Oh to have that kind of money to throw around.

Regular Kicks

Sense A Life – I am not sure this is the best solution to the problem but it is a real problem. I think the reality is people won’t buy this product until they have screwed up at least once. And every parent has done it.
ShadowBox – Lighting solutions are ever improving. This is a good price for a really useful lighting project.
Growver – Grass watering robots aren’t as good as drought tolerant grass but hey, whatcha gonna do?
Mr Beam II – I can’t wait to have a laser cutter in the kitchen at home so I can write messages on my kids’ bananas!
Mooring – One day, one of these sleep projects will deliver a product that actually works. Until then I will wait until there are real reviews out in the market.
Birdie – This would be fun once or twice.
EZ Remote – I think it’s a bit too late for a product like this to be taken seriously. But it looks ok and cheap.
Fishing FanCam – I was fishing a few weeks ago and thought that it would be great to have a camera pointed at the hook and bait. And what do you know, there it is!
Geni – A bit of a clone of ORBneXt but still a great idea.
Riley – A really cute robotic camera with some basic security features.
Fontus – A clever use of technology to extract water from humid air into a solar powered bottle. Delivery in a year from now is a bit higher risk.
Aurai – For the relief of eye strain, this mask massages your face with warm and cool water. How exciting.
LoRaONE – This product will be much more useful when the LoRaWAN network reaches a reasonable scale.
Dualo – Another new musical instrument designed to be freeform and anti-establishment.

Left Fielders

Livia – An Israel father-and-son have created a Tens machine tweaked for women’s menstruation pain. I can only imagine how they got to this idea but they produced a great video.

And remember, its only limited by your frigging imagination.
