You've got a mighty powerful computer right in your pocket. It may not match a desktop or even a laptop in sheer power, but it makes up for portability and convenience. But what if your smartphone can actually become your desktop? Not by simply mirroring the smartphone display to a larger screen. We already have lots of those going around. This Andromium Kickstarter wants to give you a real desktop experience, as much as you can squeeze inside your smartphone.
Bluetooth-connected headphones are a dime a dozen lately, but there are only a few that can claim they're for all purposes and for all kinds of lifestyles and activities. A Kickstarter project does just that with the Chips Hi-Fi All-in-One Headphones that doesn't skimp on audio quality, style or comfort.
People who constantly lose things (or people?) have much to thank technology for, since the invention of tracking devices and its like. But a new Kickstarter project can probably claim that it is so far the smallest of them all. StoneTether not only is tiny and portable, but it may also have the longest range as well.
Battery problem solutions are very much needed when smartphones are always running out of juice since we're playing games, working, social networking, etc when mobile. More and more crowd-funded products are showing up in the market, all with the aim of becoming the next big thing in battery solutions. Our nominee for today is Plan V, a portable charger for emergency cases when your battery case or your power bank just won't work.
Have you ever had a situation where you needed desperately to print a document from either your smartphone or tablet but you are not able to send it to the connected computer or you don't have the printer driver available? A new Kickstarter project wants to solve that problem by giving you a device that will wirelessly and securely print from your gadget to the printer available.
Especially if you live in a big, bustling city, silence nowadays is a luxury that we seldom get to enjoy. Yes, you can plug in to your earphones or headphones, but after a while, it gets uncomfortable on your ears or you may miss something important. A new device called Hush may just be the very first smart earplug that is easy on the ears and also useful other than keeping the noise out.
Anyone who lives in a cold climate where gloves aren’t an option knows that most gloves aren’t designed to work with smartphones. A new product has surfaced called the GoGlove that is designed to give you wearable control over your smartphone while you are outside where gloves are required. GoGlove looks like a normal set of thin gloves.
While browsing through your photos on your smartphone from your vacation or a night out with friends is always nice (and at times, entertaining), there are moments when you'd really love to have printed versions of your favorite ones. A new Kickstarter project aims to bring that capability with the SnapJet device, and you don't even need any wires or apps to do so. It just makes use of good old analog instant film and fiber optic technology.
While headphones serve their purpose when you want to drown out the annoying people around you or you just want to go off into your own musical world alone, there are some things lost by plugging into one and plugging out of your environment. One of these things lost is sharing music with friends and loved ones. A new headset trying to get crowdfunded wants to bring that social aspect back to music listening, even as you will have your own device on your head and in your ears.
It's a little bit ironic (and still totally understandable) that the more digital we become, the more we hearken to old ways of doing things, like printing digital pictures. There has been a keen interest lately in having pictures taken with your smartphone actually printed out and stuck on your corkboard or diary or wallet. A new phone case will soon be able to do just that and even give you an added bonus of seeing said photo have a few seconds of animation through an accompanying app.
