Now Funding: Bird Buddy

If you want them, you can have cameras all over your house – inside and outside. Stand-alone cameras, cameras embedded in doorbells, floodlights with cameras built in. In other words, all sorts of options for home security. What if, instead, you wanted to keep an eye on your feather friends? That’s what the crew behind Bird Buddy thought they’d create.

Now Funding: Monument 2 Photo Storage

There’s no arguing that the ubiquity of digital cameras – and now rather quite-good cameras on our phones – that we are quickly getting overrun by our digital photos. If you stay on top of organizing things (say, after a trip or event) you’re good. But if you just click away and take a look every now and again, it’ll be hard to find what you want. That’s what the Monument 2 is looking to solve.

Now Funding: The Leitners Ad Maiora Hybrid Smartwatch

When you hear the term “hybrid smartwatch”, what is it you think of? Most likely, you’re picturing a watch that has an analog display (for reading the time) along with a (usually) smaller LCD for giving you some notifications. Well, that’s sort of what we have here with the Leitners Ad Maiora – but not exactly.

Now Funding: The Quanta Vici heated wearables

For many of us, the temperatures have definitely turned towards the cooler. That means we’re pulling out the various layers to stay warm. Wool is where I tend to go most of the time, but there’s no doubt that some electrons (via the magic of resistive heating) can keep you toasty. That’s where a newer crowdfunding campaign – the Quanta Vici Smart Wearables.

Get seen and stay safe with the Lumos Ultra

As a kid, the very idea of a bike helmet just sounded ludicrous. Times have changed, and I’ve always got one on my head when I’m on the bike – as much to protect my own noggin as to be an example for my kids. Sure, it’s not the speeds I was at on my motorcycle, but still – safety is safety. One of the latest creations brings some clever lighting to the mix and is going by the name of the Lumos Ultra.

There’s minimal, and then there’s the Smallet

When it comes to your wallet, well, you probably don’t think too much about it other than making sure you’ve got your cards, and probably some cash. As part of something you carry every day, though, it’s worth giving it some thought, as it can really help you slim down what is in your pocket. To that end, the most minimal one I’ve seen to date (other than a rubber band or binder clip) is the Smallet.

Something to try from your table – taking over a Moonshine Empire

In and amongst this pandemic lockdown, folks have no doubt been keeping an eye on many of their grocery store staples, including those that fall into the category of “adult beverages”. Heck, even John was doing some distilling in a recent Zoom meetup we did with readers. So, why not turn that into a board game? That’s what you’ve got in Moonshine Empire.

Are you not entertained? If not, then perhaps Gladius is what you need

The crew here at KN, we like ourselves some games. Be it video games, TTRPGs, or classic tabletop games, we like to play games. I can’t speak for everyone else, but for me that takes the form of playing with my family, and playing over lunch with co-workers. It’s that latter group that seems well-suited to Gladius.
