Here are the crowdfunding campaigns we liked the most from the past week.
1. Weighitz – the smart scale that weighs everything
Instead of using one scale for luggage, another for weighing your body, and still another for the kitchen, you can use Weighitz instead – a weighing system that can weigh anything in your home with a set of three scales. If you want to weigh a small object or items to be used in a cake, you simply use one unit, and the result will be displayed on your smartphone. If you specify the items you are weighing, the app will also give you a nutritional and calorie count. If you want to measure a suitcase or your dog, for example, you can simply use the three-scale set, and get a precise reading of the weight accurate to 0.1 grams. Incidentally, by using the app, you can also monitor the weights of specific items or your bodyweight.
Unit price: $44
Projected delivery date: November 2016
Has the goal been reached? The goal of the project was $30,000. As of now, more than $85,000 has been raised, with three more days left of the campaign.
2. In-ear headphones with a built-in subwoofer
In-ear headphones are usually comfortable, mobile, and do not take up much space. On the other hand, most of them do not work very well with bass sounds. KStar’s headphones are the first to offer a built-in subwoofer based on bone conduction technology. This technology broadcasts through the bones, so that the low sounds reach the user’s inner ear directly. As a result, the company claims, the user enjoys a very broad range of sounds, including deep bass, which are usually missing from such small headphones.
Unit price: $35
Projected delivery date: December 2016
Has the goal been reached? The goal of the project was $10,000. As of now, $1,261 has been raised, with 24 more days left of the campaign.
3. Toasteroid – the world’s first toast printer
Forget about eating boring toast for dinner; get Toasteroid instead. A toast printer, smart toaster, or whatever you call it, promises to make your toasted bread an attraction. With the aid of a special app, you can select an illustration from a ready gallery or design the illustration yourself, add whatever caption you want, select the toasting level, and send it all to the toaster with a click that “prints” your creation on the toast. If you want to, you can also choose to print the weather forecast for that day.
Unit price: $59
Projected delivery date: July 2017
Has the goal been reached? The goal of the project was $150,000. As of now, $84,000 has been raised, with 35 days left of the campaign.
