Kickstarter: October Edition
We adore crowdfunding websites! We could spend hours just browsing Kickstarter at all the cool products and ideas that normal people like you and me come up with. We love it because typically there are ideas that we have all thought of, but mass companies don’t want to produce! Talk about geniuses! We put together our top 7 Kickstarter Campaigns we love that are ending this month! You should definitely take a look and back some of these epic ideas!
01. The Zero Breeze – The World’s Coolest Portable Air Conditioner
This awesome gadget’s Kickstarter actually ended last month (September) and it’s already over 500% funded, but we loved it so much we wanted to share it anyway! For all of us that like to go camping in the dead heat of the summer, this portable, multi-functional air conditioner unit is capable of cooling a 50 sq. ft. room down to 44 degrees (F). It’s also a bluetooth speaker, nightlight, and a charging station. What else could you possibly need? Perfect for the office, a tent, camper, dorm room or whatever your heart desires!
Check out Zero Breeze on there official website or their Official Facebook Page to learn more!
02. Fidget Cube: A Vinyl Desk Toy
You’ve probably seen this one already. Buzzfeed featured it last month and it went viral, already funding over $5m of it’s $15k goal. This little guy is literally the best gadget for anyone that fidgets in meetings, while talking on the phone, while driving, in class, etc.
Head on over to Ansty Labs Official Website or their Official Facebook page to learn more about the Fidget Cube! Kickstarter ends Wednesday, October 19th at 8:00 PM (CDT).
03. LVL – The First Wearable Hydration Monitor
We are all aware of the Fitbit and the new(ish) Apple Watch that are out on the market now, but BSX Athletics brings you the first Wearable Hydration Monitor. “Your body is mostly water. So even a 1% difference can effect you in a huge way,” states Dustin Freckleton, MD on the Official Kickstarter page. The LVL Hydration Monitor also gives you the complete picture of your health by tracking activity, sleep, mood and HR as well.
Learn more on the LVL Kickstarter Page. Kickstarter ends Wednesday, October 26th at 10:00 PM (CDT).
04. Coros LINX Smart Cycling Helmet
We crossed paths with Coros at Interbike 2016 a few weeks ago and loved the concept behind the LINX helmet. Coros has created a helmet with open-ear precision audio so cyclists can safely hear traffic as well as other sounds while out riding. This takes cycling safety up a whole new level as well as enhancing cyclists abilities to track ride data and navigation without having to stop.
Check out Coros Official Website and Official Facebook Page to learn more. Kickstarter ends Monday, October 24th at 7:00 PM (CDT).
05. CordCondom – Practice Safe Charging
How many have a frayed phone charger that might possibly electrocute you at any moment and bring an early death to your life? Yep, all of us! In comes the CordCondom (love the concept!). A colorful wrap that goes around the end of your charger keeps the wire wrapped up nice and tight and away from harm! Not to mention if you have pets that like to chew on wires while your back is turned!
Unfortunately the CordCondom Kickstarter ends on October 3rd, but you can visit their Official Website to learn more!
06. Podo – The First Stick and Shoot Camera
Let us all take a moment and celebrate the ending of selfie sticks! This is actually the sequel for Podo, featuring a better camera and a wide-angle lens. Stick your Podo Camera on any surface and control it wirelessly with the Podo App anywhere you are. “With Podo, what you capture is up to you and not the length of your arm.” Set a timer and you will never need a selfie stick ever again!
Check out the Official Podo Website and their Official Facebook Page to learn more! Kickstarter ends Wednesday, October 12th at 11:00 PM (CDT).
07. FLASHLIFE – Most Complete Survival Product
This bad boy is literally everything that you can think of in one stick. The owner/creator of FLASHLIFE lost his 20 year daughter in an accident that could have been avoided. Along with his wife, they created the FLASHLIFE to help others from suffering the same loss they felt. Charger, Flashlight, Asprin, Waterproof, you name it, this Survival Product probably has it.
Learn more on the Official Flashlife Kickstarter Page! Kickstarter ends Saturday, November 5th at 1:21 PM (CDT).
