Firefox OS-based Matchstick out of Kickstarter soon, project being cancelled

Believe it or not, not all crowdfunded projects turn out to be successful. A few have already failed (so unfortunately), leaving not only the developers but also the backers heartbroken. It's not really so much about the money or profit loss but not being able to achieve success especially after we believe in a project's potential. But business is business and because of several reasons, the group behind Matchstick has decided to no longer push through with the project and refund all the money pledges given by the backers.

Jide Remix Mini Android PC coming to Kickstarter this July

The year started with Jide unveiling the Remix Ultra Tablet. The tech startup brought the project to Kickstarter and fortunately, the fund goal was raised and the tablet actually shipped to backers last May. Tablet was listed in two variants on the crowdfunding website: a $349 16GB model and the $449 64GB version. This time, Jide is giving us a glimpse of the new Remix Mini, a small Chromebox-like device that runs Remix OS, the same platform running on the Ultra Tablet.

SlideUP Launcher development takes an unusual Kickstarter turn

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Android will never have a dearth of app launchers and homescreen replacements. There are different kinds of different qualities, appealing to different tastes and different needs. SlideUP is yet another one of those vying for your attention, but admittedly, it is a curious one that, at the very least, deserves a second glance. Not only does it offer useful functionality, it seems to be trying out a slightly new way of development, at least as far as Android launchers go.

LifeLogger camera hits Kickstarter with promise of point-of-view capture

We've seen plenty about Google Glass lately, and one of the features of the Google wearable is the ability to quickly capture images and video from your point of view. There is plenty more going on with Glass, however a new Kickstarter project appears aimed at those who are only looking for image (and video) capture. The project is the LifeLogger and the funding campaign has just gotten underway.

Lensbaby offers Android goal for Kickstarter lens project

If you’ve got friends using iPhones, you may have seen them sport some add-on lenses for their sharp shooter. There are a lot of aftermarket lenses for the iPhone; it sells well, and has a single form factor. Android users haven’t been so lucky, but popular Kickstarter team Lensbaby is changing that.
