In Review: MP Magic Waffle Towel

If you recall, it wasn’t that long ago that we told you about the crowdfunding campaign for the MP Magic Waffle Towel (you can see that here). Even though that campaign doesn’t finish until the start of October, we were able to get an early one in to take for a spin (and don’t worry, there are no pictures of me in a towel in this review).

Now Funding: Rotrics Nextube

Nixie tubes are something that have held a fascination for me, just because they encapsulate that retro-futuristic cool vibe. Or at least, that’s what I pick up from them. Of course, those tubes are not the easiest to find, and are finicky as any old bit of electronics will be. So, what if we emulated the look and feel with modern tech? That’s what the Rotrics Nextube is figuring out.

Now Funding: the Memo Bottle, but in steel!

And yes, I know what you’re thinking – that’s a flask! Well, no one will stop you from using it that way (it is Friday, after all) but this is intended to be a water bottle. One that (sort of) follows paper sizing conventions, and ends up with a flatter profile that means the Memo Bottle can fit a lot more places.

Now Funding: Newtral Ergonomic Chair

I’ve been thinking about desk chairs for a few weeks now, for one very simple reason. My 10+ year old Ikea chair – while still functional – can no longer lock into position, meaning if I lean back it reclines back on me. So, that’s my cue to start looking around. That means I’m now also seeing ads for all sorts of chair options, and one that came up was this new crowdfunding campaign for the Newtral Ergonomic Chair.

Now Funding: Elesense Computer Monitor Light Bar

I think over the last year and a half, we’ve all become intensely aware of the lighting at our workstations. Or whatever you consider your work-from-home setup to be. Gone are the bright, always-on flourescent fixtures of the office. If you’re working in a darker room or a basement, now you need to worry about seeing your keyboard, and even having enough light to show up well on all the remote calls we have these days. That’s where something like the Elesense Computer Monitor Light Bar can help out.

Now Funding: Dust Biters

When it comes to crowd-funded games, they tend towards the massive. In other words, it’s a giant box (or you’ll wish you had a giant box) with a zillion tokens, a 50-page rulebook, and the requirement of a table large enough that it could have housed a Viking feast. Or, you know, you could get something like Dust Biters.

Now Funding: Fjorden

There is no denying that, for many of us, our phones have become our default cameras. And why not? The actual hardware is decent, and we always have our phones with us – which means we always have a camera with us. While I’ve still got a DSLR that I use, the phone does take 75% of my photos these days. One thing it’s missing, though, are those physical controls a camera has. Enter the Fjorden.
