The RGB Critter, for all your light-painting needs

Sometimes when I go trawling through Kickstarter (ok, most of the time) I have no idea what I’ll run across. Every now and again, I find something completely unexpected, and that’s what we’ve got in the form of the RGB Critter, a color-changing flashlight with a surprising number of attachments.

Get your typey-tappy on with the Libra iPad Pro keyboard

The iPad pro is definitely one of the more powerful tablets out there. With it’s pen support, larger screen, and additional capabilities that come with that hardware, there could certainly be a temptation to use it as an ultra-lightweight laptop replacement. If you’re planning to do any sort of writing (text, code, whatever) I’m guessing the pen input is not what you want. For that, you want a keyboard. Well, how about a keyboard that makes the iPad Pro look almost like a MacBook, complete with trackpad? That’s what the Libra keyboard is offering up.

Simplifying things with the Mudita Pure Phone

Being as we’re a tech news and reviews site – and you’re reading it – it’s safe to say that we’re all fans of mobile phones in some capacity. Once upon a time, they were utilitarian, but now they can be so many things – our camera, our jukebox, and our game system, just to name a few. But with all of that usefulness can come distractions. “Oh, I’ll just check my mail” and next thing you know, you went down some social media rabbit hole. But we need to remain connected to our loved ones, our friends, our co-workers. So, what’s the solution? Well, the new Mudita Pure Phone may just be the answer.

The Sequent Supercharger answers the battery life question

Whatever the gadget, battery life is ever the question – how long will it last? This is often thought of with our phones, but it’s ever more present with smart watches. In fact, I’m wearing one at the moment for a review, and I’m lucky to get two days between chargers (depending on what I’m doing with it). What if you could get around needing to charge the watch at all? That’s what the Sequent Supercharger is offering.

Teracube is offering up an unheard-of 4 year warranty on their phones

I know, I know, we’ve been very heavy on phones as of late, between all of the iPhone coverage, and some other Android-related things. However, it just feels like there’s a lot of energy in that segment of the tech world, and I’m going to keep covering the stuff I find interesting. One of the latest I ran across over on Kickstarter is the Teracube.

Tesmo wants to give your laptop a little lift

Seems like ergonomics were all the rage. We had wrist wrists, mouse pads with gel built in, and all manner of things. For our keyboards, along with the split design, we’ve long had the ability to flip out little legs to adjust the typing angle. If you’re relying on the keyboard built into your latop, though, you were stuck. At least, until the Tesmo was thought up.

Now Kickstarting: Moonrakers

Make no mistake – while we here at KN dig tech and gadgets, there’s something about the tactile pleasure (and table talk) of a good ol’ tabletop game. Of course, with the technology known as crowdfunding, we can find out there are a lot more options out there. One of the latest to ping my radar screen is Moonrakers.

Portable computing power – not just for tablets anymore

When it comes to portable devices that fit in your pocket, we tend to think of things like gaming systems (Switch Lite, anyone? Or Evercade?), or maybe a tablet. If you want to go full-on and do some work, your options are a fewer. Sure, you could get a Chromebook, or get a keyboard for your tablet, but a Windows-based experience? That’s where the Pocket PC – now funding on Indiegogo – comes in.

This isn’t any old iPad dongle – it’s the BoltHub

You may have noticed a bit of a pro-Apple slant in our coverage as of late. Some of that is due to the hardware each of us most commonly uses in our daily life (and our day jobs), and some of it also has to do with the clever innovation going on. While non-Cupertino devices offer a lot of flexibility, I’d say Apple devices leave a lot of room for the aftermarket to come up with interesting solutions. One of those is the BoltHub.
