Amazing Kickstarter Tech That You Should Support Right Now
For the last few months, we have been featuring some of the amazing unfunded technology on Kickstarter. A platform for budding innovators to share their ideas and potentially receive backing from the general public, it is a hub of creativity where some of the most exciting technology of the future is being born. In the month of April, it has been no different. Drone, automobile and food technology have all appeared on the crowd-funding site and are yet to reach their goal. Here are some we would love to support:
You don’t need to feel left out of the drone movement. Phone Drone now means that anyone with an Apple or Android phone can get involved. All you have to do is open the app, select the Mission mode, draw a trajectory and set an altitude, then slip your smartphone into the protective drone case. With the press of a button, you will watch your phone transform into a drone where it can take flight and record amazing video footage. You can also pair it with another device and control it remotely if you have a spare smartphone or a friend with you.
Smart Plate is able to help you maintain a healthy diet with absolutely no effort. The plate can instantly track everything you eat by utilising image recognition of the items placed on it and analysing the weight of what is on the surface. It will then collect this data in the cloud and provide you with feedback about what you may need more or less of in your diet. The smart plate also has the ability to tell how fast you are eating based on how fast the weight is changing and can adapt to the needs of its user, whether you are an athlete, for instance, or trying to lose weight. The developers claim it has 99 per cent accuracy.
Earphones can often feel like a waste of money. They take up space, get tangled very easily, and have an incredibly short lifespan. SBWLY are earphones that want to give you more bang for your buck. They are designed to not be damaged when curled or stretched, ensuring that wires don’t become exposed. They also went become tangled due to the material being used and are built to be sturdy and guarantee an enhanced longevity. SBLWY ewill come in a range of colours including white, pink, yellow, green and blue.
Every car has what Go Far calls a ‘sweet spot’; a perfect throttle position at which your car runs best. As it changes with every particular vehicle, it’s difficult to find exactly where that spot is, but doing so can reduce your fuel by up to 20 per cent and reduce your car’s emissions in the process. Go Far helps you make this possible. The device flashes blue when you are hitting it and red when you are not. It can also analyse driving patterns and learn when the best time to leave the house is.
