Now Funding: A-Spadz Cavet e-bike

With electric bikes, they often look like your standard bicycle that has a small motor and power pack strapped on. Gets the job done, but perhaps not the most stylish-looking thing, right? Well, what it you took the idea of cafe racers styling, stripped out the motor, added some pedals, and kept the more robust mechanicals in the suspension and brakes? You’d have something approaching the A-Spadz Cavet.

Now Funding: Sentien Audio

As of late, my audio world has been true wireless earbuds (for when I exercise) and over-ear ANC headphones (for while I’m working). There is another category out there for headphones that I have a bit of a fascination with – bone conduction headsets. My buddy got a pair a few years ago, and I was surprised by how well they worked. Well, now we’ve got Sentien bringing another set to your cranium.

Now Funding: Rocketbook Axis

While many folks prefer to just type out their notes, I’m all about writing things down by hand (and studies back me up). It used to be in a standard notebook that I’d then snap pictures of and upload into Evernote, but now I’m all about doing it digitally first via a tablet and stylus. If you’re looking for a less investment-heavy option, but want the ease of getting your notes digitally, the just-launched Rocketbook Axis is something worth checking out.

Now Funding: Bowio Book Light

For as long as I can remember, being able to clearly read at night was always something of a challenge. Sure, you could have a lamp on, but you maybe don’t want to do that. Used to be that I’d use a headlamp (and still do, sometimes), and then went to a Nook Color, and now these days find myself reading on a Kindle Paperwhite. If you want to read good ol’ physical books, though, the Bowio looks to be an interesting option.

Now Funding: So, You’ve Been Eaten

Of the many things that have taken off with crowdfunding, I think board games is one area that has really bloomed. There have been a tremendous number of innovative and interesting games that large publishers just might not take a chance on. One of the latest to catch my eye is So, You’ve Been Eaten by LudiCreations.

Now Funding: LitiHolo 3D Hologram Printer

3D printers, that’s last year’s news, man. I mean, sure, they’re still pretty cool and folks are turning out all sorts of cool work with them, so there’s that. But what if you want a different sort of a 3D printer? That, my friend, is where the LitiHolo 3D Hologram Printer comes into play.

Now funding: Pixels Dice

While playing games online can have appeal, there’s something about that tactile experience of sitting around a table with friends, rolling lots of math rocks (aka dice) to figure out what in the world is going on in the story you’re building. Well, why not bring some of that online flash into your game with Pixels Dice?

Now Funding: Tiny Epic Dungeons

Back in the days where we actually used to go into the office, a group of us at work had the habit of playing games over lunch. This constrained things to stuff that could be played more quickly, and introduced a number of interesting ones. One that we enjoyed quite a bit was Tiny Epic Galaxies by Gamelyn Games. They’ve actually got quite a few “Tiny Epic” games, and one of the latest is on Kickstarter now – Tiny Epic Dungeons.

Now Funding: Storm 2 Power Bank

Lately, it seems that you have no end of choice when it comes to battery packs to keep your stuff juiced up while on the go, or in the midst of an emergency. While choice is great, it can be a bit tricky to sort through it all and find one that meets your needs, and fits the look you go for in your gadgets. A rather unique one just hit Kickstarter, in the form of the Storm 2 Power Bank.

Now Funding: the Buccaneer Skillet

At some point a few years back, I realized that cooking was a hobby of mine. Sure, it’s something that needs to be done in order to eat, but it’s also something that I rather enjoy doing. As a result, we’ve had a few different pieces of cast iron enter into the arsenal, but it can have some drawbacks that the Buccaneer Skillet look to address.
