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: Into the Mother Lands

Some of the most engaging and entertaining podcasts I’ve been listening to over the last year or two have been those that are real-play shows that explore TTRPG systems other than DnD. To that end, there’s a Kickstarter going on now for one of the more recent, that’s actually still fleshing out the world and mechanics – Into the Mother Lands.

Now Funding: Cellulose

With board games, there are many popular types of game mechanics. One of the most popular – at least when combined – is resource management and worker placement. You’ve got to make choices of where to deploy your workers to get the stuff you need to build better and better things. Want to do that in a literal biological scenario? Then check out Cellulose.

Now Funding: JoGo Coffee Brewing Straw

For brewing up coffee in the outdoors, you’ve got all manner of options. While I started out with an Aeropress for our car camping, now I’ve got a more old-school percolator setup for my camp stove. If you want something even more minimalistic than that, you can opt for coffee in tea bags, instant coffee, or the JoGo coffee “brewing” straw.

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.
