Onpark 3 —电动滑板

如今,电动滑板车一毛钱,但它的一项功能使其可胜任其他功能:可更换电池系统。这意味着,如果您正在骑行而电池没电了,则不必在电池充满时等待一个小时的等待找到充电器。相反,您只需单击一个新的单元格并继续骑行即可。坦率地说,为什么此功能在电动滑板上并不常见。

快闪森林-无人机造林小队

自工业革命以来,人类一直在与森林砍伐作斗争。尽管环保主义者做出了最大的努力,但世界每年烧毁的树木或比重新种植的树木多砍伐约100亿棵树-这一问题对气候变化具有重大影响。环保组织数十年来一直在尝试(并且未能)扭转这一趋势,但是Flash Forest认为在其他方面失败的情况下它可以成功。怎么样?通过招募一支轰炸种子的无人机部队,以比以往任何时候都快的速度自主种植树木。

技能板— 360度平衡板

平衡板是一种了不起的训练工具,但是其中的绝大多数-基本上是放在圆柱体上的木板-只会教您如何从左到右进行平衡。但是,技能委员会是不同的。这个残酷的混蛋将您置于一个柔和的球体之上,从而迫使您多用一些肌肉,以保持平衡并保持稳定。如果您想增强自己的核心肌肉并提高平衡能力,则值得一试。

Alfred-机器人AI助手

在过去的几年中,人工智能助手取得了长足的进步,但是阿尔弗雷德(Alfred)希望进一步提高自己的水平。他基本上是一个具有机器人身体的AI助手。这样一来,他就可以做Siri和Alexa无法做的事情-例如跟随您到您的公寓周围,了解他的环境,以及将图像和视频投影到您的墙壁上。这是一个好主意,很可能会为AI助手开启一个新时代

XEV Yoyo — 3D打印的电动汽车

这个很甜。这是一款仅由57个零件组成的3D打印电动汽车,与传统汽车的数千个零件相比,有了巨大的进步。从本质上讲,这使它的生产成本降低了,这使XEV能够以不到7000美元的价格出售。在规格方面,Yoyo的10马力电动机使它的最高时速达到了43英里/小时,而9.2千瓦时的电池组则提供了足够的汁液,可行驶93英里。

Mantour X-自平衡电动踏板车

这个东西是一个自我平衡的踏板车,但它并不是您惯常看到的自我平衡。它不是在骑车时为您平衡,而是在不骑车时在一个车轮上保持平衡。这样做的想法是,这使运输变得更容易,因为您实际上不必携带它。很聪明的东西!

JBL Reflect —太阳能耳机

如果您再也不必为无线耳机充电了怎么办?如果您四处走走,他们会为自己加油吗?好吧,这基本上就是JBL的新Reflect耳机所承诺的。由于头带上覆盖了太阳能电池,因此这些电话每天可以暴露2.5个小时,因此可以无限期保持供电

Cameradactyl Bracopan — 3D可打印胶卷相机

这个项目很棒。过去几年,这位帅哥Ethan Moses一直在设计和销售惊人的3D打印相机,现在他在Kickstarter上出售STL文件,以便其他人可以使用自己的工具和设备来构建它们。最好的?您只需花费1美元即可获得所需的所有文件和说明。这意味着他将需要很多人支持该项目,才能实现他的$ 12K融资目标!

Fingerbot —多用途物联网交换机

想要将您的房屋转变成连接互联网的智能家居,但又不想花大价钱升级您拥有的每个开关,恒温器和设备? Fingerbot适合您。它本质上是一个小的物联网模块,一端有一个粘贴片,而另一端有一个执行器。这个想法是,您可以将其粘贴到您已经拥有的东西上,然后使用Fingerbot通过物理上拨动开关或按下按钮来远程激活它们。

Boost-动力冲浪鳍

当您可以在上面冲浪时,为什么还要划一下冲浪板呢?这就是Boost背后的前提,Boost是一种非常聪明的冲浪板鳍,配有推进器。在不使用时,鳍片的设计使您的电路板可以像在其他板上一样在水中滑行-但是,当您打开电源时,推进器会提供快速的动力提升,将您踢向前进。不再需要费力地划动冲浪,也不会因为缺乏速度而错过浪潮!

十二月15

草稿顶部—啤酒罐顶部去除剂

如果您是喝啤酒的人,则需要检查一下。您知道如果在盖子上戳个洞怎么可以更快地喝啤酒?那么草稿顶部使您可以将这个想法提高到一个全新的水平。这个聪明的小工具不仅可以戳洞,还可以完全去除罐头的顶部,从而有效地将罐头变成杯子。最棒的是,它可以做到这一点而不会产生任何尖锐的边缘,因此您可以随意随意地随意摆动。

Ode Brew研磨机—变粗度咖啡研磨机

您需要$ 225的咖啡研磨器吗?可能不会。您可以在亚马逊上以30美元的价格获得通行证。但是,如果您是咖啡呆子,并且对质量和一致性很在意,则可能应该检查一下。得益于其创新的研磨机设计,Ode Brew研磨机使您能够决定研磨的尺寸,并每次都能获得可预测的精确颗粒。从本质上讲,这意味着您可以对所制作的任何类型的咖啡都进行完美研磨-无论是法国压榨,倾倒甚至是浓缩咖啡。

EO Blaster —无化学清洗系统

如果您不必使用刺激性化学物质清洁台面怎么办?如果您再也不必购买这些化学药品,而是可以使用神奇的装置将自来水转化为强大的消毒剂而又不用电,该怎么办?听起来很棒,对吗?好吧,这正是EO Blaster的作用。为了清洁房屋周围的事物,它使用了电解水-听起来像是总的BS,但实际上是合法的,它是日本开发的,用于消毒寿司店等高细菌环境,而不引入有害化学物质。

Mova —拉链防水骑行裤

您知道运动员在比赛开始前有时会穿的折断裤子吗?那些由于其独特的设计而可以在不脱鞋的情况下穿上或脱下的鞋?好吧,Mova Cycling基本上采用了完全相同的想法,并将其应用于一套适合骑车人的雨裤。唯一的不同是,这条裤子不是用纽扣而是用拉链设计的-因此,不幸的是,您在锁好并进入办公大楼后,无法胜利地脱下裤子。

百吉饼牛仔裤-邮寄定制牛仔裤

大约一年前,一家名为Bagel的公司以传统卷尺的创新方式席卷了Kickstarter。百吉卷尺代替了刻有标记的金属带,而是使用了一根线和一个数字读数来显示当前的扩展长度。现在,该公司又回来了一个新项目,该项目将上述卷尺技术用于特定目的:生成可以在线订购的量身定制的牛仔裤。观看视频-真是太聪明了。

Space 3D-经济实惠的SLA打印机

过去,SLA 3D打印机价格昂贵,对普通消费者来说买不起,但是现在这种情况已经开始改变。很大程度上要归功于众筹平台(如Kickstarter和Indiegogo),在过去的几年中,这类打印机的价格已经大大降低,并且已经可以使用。如今,有许多产品的价格不到1000美元,而且目前正在开发中。

进入众筹领域的最新产品是Space 3D,这是一款价格实惠的SLA / DLP打印机,尽管在Kickstarter上的售价仅为600美元,但它具有一系列高端功能,通常仅在价格高于1,500美元的机器上才能看到。最值得一提的是,它具有绝对庞大的构造信封,可让您打印更大的零件并抽出更多东西

胶子-可编程机械手

如果您曾经梦想拥有一个类似于Tony Stark的JARVIS机器人的自动化助手,那么您可能应该立即停止正在做的任何事情,并在Kickstarter上查看Hexbot。与专门针对制造商和设计师的机器人辅助设备相比,Hexbot是一种机器人手臂,几乎可以为家庭中的任何目的服务,从艺术项目到3D打印再到搅拌咖啡。它配备了计算机视觉和视觉处理技术,因此可以用于绝对大量的不同任务。

Diveroid —潜水通用智能手机壳

如果您打算休假,并打算在该处潜水或浮潜,则很可能要在水中拍照。对于大多数人来说,这意味着您将为手机配备一个特殊的防水套,使用一次或两次,然后在一年后购买新手机时将其扔掉。 Diveroid提供了更可持续的选择。这是一款通用潜水表壳,可与任何智能手机配合使用,即使您几年后可能仍会拥有。

Diple — 1000倍智能手机显微镜

在这一点上,智能手机显微镜还不是一个新的主意,但这与现在的显微镜略有不同。所谓的Diple可以放大1,000倍。从功能上来讲,这意味着它足够强大,可以通过明亮的大智能手机屏幕查看单个细菌,血细胞等。您甚至可以捏和缩放以放大或缩小图像。很整洁吧?

Bullet SSD-钥匙扣大小的SSD

您知道您可能现在仍在钥匙串上保存着破烂的旧USB驱动器吗?试想一下它是否更小,更快,更坚固,并拥有更多的存储空间。那几乎就是Bullet SSD了。这是一个很小的存储设备,除了拥有高达2TB的存储空间外,还通过了IP67认证,这意味着它是防水和防尘的。它也被金属包裹着,所以在被扔掉以后的几年中,它仍然可以生存。

十二月2

Unocup —装有盖子的纸杯

一次性的一次性纸杯对环境不是很有害-但是随附的塑料盖呢?他们不是很好。因此,在逐步淘汰一次性塑料的过程中,一家名为Unocup的初创公司开发了一种解决方案:设计巧妙的纸杯,由于其独特的形状,可以折叠起来形成盖子。从根本上讲,不需要用仅需使用一次的塑料就可以在咖啡(或其他任何东西)上盖上咖啡。

超级极简日历-重新设计的全年日历

这是本周精选中科技含量最低的产品,但实在太聪明了。这是一本以实用性和以人为本的布局的全年日历。与其将每月的时间显示在一系列不太理想的星期中,不如将它们分成四个五个工作日,每个星期之间有两个周末。此外,每个月的头几天和最后一天都有下划线,因此您可以轻松地发现一个月结束和另一个开始的时间。

Artiphon Orba-手掌大小的多功能乐器

几年前,Artiphon发布了Instrument(乐器),这是一种模糊的吉他形电子乐器,它使用户能够通过熟悉的吉他琴颈演奏几乎任何可以想象的声音,从而闯入了现场。这是一次巨大的成功,现在该公司又回来了另一台名为Orba的电子仪器。这个想法基本上是相同的,但是被缩小到一个更小,更开放的形式。

气候中性认证-环保产品认证

您知道杂货店中的某些物品被标记为“认证有机食品”或“无笼”或“非转基因食品”吗?为了获得这些标签,公司必须实际获得独立机构的认证,以验证公司的产品是否符合某些标准。 Climate Neutral认证是添加到产品中的一项新认证,但它并未表示给定的产品或服务不含麸质或非转基因食品,而是表明该产品背后的公司已积极采取措施来抵消其碳排放的影响操作。很简约!

Ever Ratchet —棘轮EDC工具

EDC工具在Kickstarter和Indiegogo等众筹网站上仅占一角,但这可以说是我见过的最好的工具之一。得益于巧妙的设计,它配备了棘轮的螺丝起子/扳手设置-这意味着您不必将其旋转一整圈即可拧紧螺栓或拧紧螺丝。当然,在小巧的小框架中还塞满了其他一些功能-包括撬杆和开瓶器。

十一月24

Epilog-癫痫追踪可穿戴

这东西真是太好了。从本质上讲,它是一种可穿戴式电池供电的EEG监护仪,它可以全天跟踪您的脑电波,将该信息传送到智能手机,然后使用算法分析您的大脑活动并预测癫痫发作。显然,它不是为所有人设计的大众市场设备,而是专门为帮助癫痫患者而设计的。即使您没有条件,这仍然是值得支持的想法。

Ebo —机器人猫玩具

多年来,我在Kickstarter和Indiegogo上看到了很多所谓的“智能”猫玩具,但这可能是迄今为止最先进的玩具。除了标准功能(如能够四处走动和鼓励猫追逐的能力)外,它还具有环保意识传感器,可让其映射出房间并避免碰撞;还具有返回家中的功能,可确保始终充电,并且即使是内置摄像头,也可以让您观看猫追逐时的情况。疯了!

醇厚的二重奏—物联网可视视频机

几年前,梅洛(Mello)提出了一个具有开创性的想法,掀起了烹饪界的热潮:一台连接互联网的soud vide机器不仅可以烹饪食物,还可以保持食物凉爽,直到您准备烹饪为止。这样,您可以在上班前将牛排浸泡在烹饪室中,整天保持凉爽,然后在回家之前轻按手机上的按钮开始烹饪。这简直就是辉煌,现在他们又回来了,有一个更大,更糟的版本,带有两个烹饪室。这意味着您可以在两个不同的温度下烹饪两个不同的菜肴,但要同时将它们放出来。天才!

Seesense Air-先进的自行车追踪器

如今,追踪器和其他自行车防盗装置一角钱,但这是不同的。与大多数现有的追踪器不同(后者依靠月租费的蜂窝/ GPS连接,或者怪异的专有网络仅在您周围的每个人都具有完全相同的追踪器应用程序时才起作用),它通过Narrowband IoT与您的手机通信,基本上,它可以像苹果的“查找我的iPhone”实用程序一样工作,但是没有任何订阅或服务费用。

Segway越野摩托车—电动越野车

你买不到的很棒的技术,赛格威越野摩托车

该产品尚未真正发布,所以我们对此并不太了解-但根据可用的视频素材和预览页面上的照片,我认为可以肯定这件事会很棒是非常安全的。当然,这并不是有史以来第一款电动越野车,但它来自世界上最佳可骑乘技术制造商之一的赛格威,这一事实令人兴奋。手指交叉,他们以实惠的价格出售它!

十一月17

Rumpl x Loki —旅行狗床

如果您需要狗的睡眠垫,可以在网上轻松找到一个。只需前往亚马逊,您就会发现不乏用于使毛茸茸的朋友保持舒适状态的护垫,手袋和其他睡眠解决方案。但是,如果您打算带狗去旅行,那么寻找合适的犬用睡垫可能会遇到更多麻烦。问题是很少有(如果有的话)被设计为紧凑和便携式的狗睡眠系统。它们通常是用较厚的填充物制成,这种填充物很难压缩,因此不太适合放在背包中。鲁普尔决定改变这一状况。

Home沼气—后院沼气池

信不信由你,美国生产的所有食物中约有40%被浪费了。我们投入了各种时间和精力来生产它,但最终仍然要扔掉大量的它,然后将其发送到垃圾填埋场。这是非常浪费的,但是HomeBiogas背后的人们有一个解决方案。他们精心设计的生物消化器(现已进入第三代)可以让您收集几乎所有可生物降解的东西-餐厨残渣,肉,油脂,油,蛋壳,草屑,甚至小木棍或小块木头-并利用细菌进行转化将其转化为烹饪气体和液体肥料。太棒了吧?

Hyperjuice — 100W GAN充电器块

充电器砖可能是有史以来最不流行的技术,但实际上这是非常可爱的。尽管不超过标准卡座,但Hyperjuice充电器却被称为能够传输100W以上的功率,并能同时榨汁四个设备。得益于被称为氮化镓的神奇材料,砖头的两个USB-A端口支持最新的快速充电标准,因此可以以极快的速度为设备提供电源。唯一的缺点?它将花费您70美元。对于壁式充电站而言,这是非常陡峭的。

拉链袋-可重复使用的食品储物袋

随着减少一次性塑料运动的兴起,数十家新兴公司争相向您出售可重复使用的常见一次性物品,例如吸管,餐具,购物袋,甚至Q-tips。十字准线中最新的塑料?邮编袋。您已经可以在亚马逊上找到几美元的硅版本,但是Twopillars的这一版本将事情推向了一个全新的高度。它有一个储物袋,可塞入其中的可重复使用的餐具,可重复使用的标签以及最重要的是终身保修。买到这个东西,您就永远不必再购买储物袋了。

暴风雨-先进的个人气象站

目前,家庭气象站已经存在了数十年,但“暴风雨”可能是迄今为止最先进的气象站。它几乎可以衡量您所能想到的一切。说真的它不仅是基本的东西,如雨水,温度和气压,还可以使用各种不同的方法来测量所有这些东西,甚至更多,从而为您提供最完整的实时天气数据集。令人惊讶的是,它无需任何活动部件,也无需电线即可完成所有这些工作。它是100%太阳能供电的,可以通过Wi-Fi将信息传输到您家中的基站。它甚至与国家气象局共享所有这些数据,因此它可以为一般预报做出更准确的预报。漂亮的东西!

Focusbuds-提高生产力的耳塞

在任何给定的时刻,大约有成千上万的事物在争夺您的注意力。整天轰炸着我们的所有消息,警报,电子邮件和通知,越来越长的时间专注于任何事情变得越来越困难。这正是Focusbuds旨在解决的问题。根据其创建者的说法,Focusbuds使用称为脑电图(EEG)神经反馈的过程监控用户的注意力水平。这是通过使用能够捕获此大脑活动的嵌入式传感器以及对其进行分析的专有软件来实现的。然后,通过音频提示将所得的数据见解实时传达给用户。这样做的目的是保证耳塞将帮助您训练大脑集中注意力并阻止干扰。

漂流者-智能手机的第二屏

您的智能手机需要第二个屏幕吗?可能不是,但还是有人做出来了。这很简单。所谓的Castaway基本上是一种微型铬片,可塞入智能手机外壳。将手机放在手机壳中,它将与平板电脑链接,从而使您可以同时使用两个应用程序。

Fourneau Grande —工匠面包烤箱

不幸的是,用标准的厨房烤箱制作面包品质的面包几乎是不可能的-除非您使用的是Fourneau之类的东西。基本上就像是荷兰汤锅,为您在家中制作手工面包创造了理想的环境。新版本的Fourneau Grande是原始版本的较大版本,为您提供了制作更长,更大或形状奇怪的特色面包的空间。

大球体-银河系办公桌装饰品

2016年,设计师Clemens Steffin在Kickstarter上启动了他的“宇宙中的球”项目,创建了一个包含380,000个完美激光点的玻璃球,每个点代表一个完整的星系。然后他的下一个项目旨在重新创建我们自己的银河系,每个点代表一个不同的恒星。现在他回来了,有了这个想法的更大版本,并且比以前更加艰苦详尽!

Snowfeet 2-滑冰鞋

这是DT的独家新闻稿人Kraig Becker:“乍一看,Snowfeet看上去非常像一双在类固醇上的凉鞋。但是,仔细检查后,您很快就会发现,Snowfeet的皮带看起来比滑雪板固定器要多得多,而不是您在触发器上所见的任何东西。这些绑定使Snowfeet可以容纳任何类型的鞋子或靴子,然后收缩以将鞋子保持在适当的位置。一旦安装,Snowfeet就是可以在雪地上使用的有效滑冰鞋。”听起来很棒,对吗?

11月3日

Gosun餐具-平板包装可重复使用的餐具

随着减少一次性塑料运动的兴起,越来越多的初创公司争相向您出售可折叠/可重复使用的吸管和餐具-尤其是在Kickstarter上。但是,尽管这些产品无疑是有用的,但它们也不是特别方便。您必须记住随身携带它们,以便它们发挥作用。这就是GoSun的新型可重复使用餐具如此整洁的原因。它们被设计成可以装在钱包大小的手提箱中,因此您可以轻松地将它们放进钱包或钱包中,并随时随身携带。

灰烬—加热的中间层

2019年初,新兴的户外装备初创公司Sierra Madre推出了Kickstarter,以资助开发一种称为Hot Pocket的创新型新型保温袋。为了使该产品栩栩如生,该公司开发了一种既轻巧又高效的尖端热敏面板-现在,它希望将相同的技术烘焙到加热的中间层中。 Ember被称为“比竞争对手强大10倍。”如果这一主张成立,那么它目前在Kickstarter上的价格为259美元,将是物超所值。

枕头—带充气式颈枕的连帽衫

数十年来,颈枕一直是航空旅行者的必备品-但是为什么我们只在飞行时才使用它们呢?不论您走到哪里,都可以随身携带一个,这会很好吗,这样您就可以在公车回家快速睡个午觉了吗?这正是Pillowdy背后的想法。这是一件连帽衫,连帽衫内藏有一个隐藏的充气式颈枕。每当您需要快速午睡时,只需将可收起的吹管吹出来,然后给它吹几下即可。呼吸不到一口气,您的颈枕将焕发活力,并为您的头部提供休息的地方。

方形关闭Neo-自动棋盘

这是本周早些时候刊登的全文的简要介绍:“ Neo尺寸为14.72英寸乘14.72英寸,重量仅为3.3磅,被设计成是Square Off的智能国际象棋体验的廉价入门产品。它通过手机上的应用程序控制,该应用程序通过蓝牙连接连接到开发板上。从那里,您可以与30种不同难度级别的Square Off内置AI进行对抗。但是,您不仅需要与计算机对抗-该应用程序还可以将您与真正的对手联系在一起。发送一个挑战,然后董事会处理其余的事务,将您的动作发送到他们的棋盘,同时将他们的棋盘发送给您。

Owly Pack —模块化背包

模块化背包在这一点上不一定是新事物,但Owly Pack似乎非常出色。得益于其独特的可交换模块集,您可以根据需要轻松添加或删除功能,以构建适合您的特定冒险的完美产品包。例如,如果您要进行快速轻松的一日徒步旅行,并且想将一些饮料保持凉爽,则可以压缩冷却器模块。如果您打算在去的地方露营,这里有一个包含帐篷/吊床混合帐篷的避难所模块。最重要的是?开机完全防水。

十月27

Skytrek —更智能的智能手提箱

如今,智能手提箱风靡一时。它们具有各种形状,大小和配置的巨大范围,每一个都解决了旅行者经常遇到的不同痛苦点。这一新兴类别中的最新产品是Skytrek,这是一款独特的智能手提箱,配备了我见过的一些最简单,最巧妙的功能。除了创新的垂直包装配置外,它还设计为在关闭时具有平顶,因此当您坐在码头时,可以将其用作办公桌。

Ilumee —短焦4K LED投影仪

巨型电视非常棒,而且功能强大,但无论您放置在哪个房间,它们都往往会占据主导地位。即使没有打开,巨大的黑色空白空间实际上也要求您按下电源按钮,并在屏幕上移动一些图片。投影仪没有这个问题。当他们离开时,他们会在那放松一下,专心经营自己的生意,直到您觉得自己喜欢看东西为止。唯一的问题?设置它们很麻烦,因为它们需要专用的安装空间,距离查看屏幕多英尺。解决方案?像Ilumee这样的短投投影机。观看视频-这个东西看起来很棒。

Incharge 6 —钥匙扣式多功能充电器

如果像我一样,您可能会在家里,工作场所保留一堆充电电缆,甚至可能将一对充电电缆放在背包或钱包中,以防万一。如果您不必摆弄所有的电线,并且每次都可以随身携带一根电线,那岂不是很好吗?好吧,这正是Incharge 6的设计目的。这是一种6合1充电电缆,设计精巧地适合您的钥匙扣,因此您始终可以随身携带。它配备有USB,USB-C,MicroUSB和Lightning连接器,并且其设计方式是可以交换这些末端以创建六个不同的配置。

Princube —手持式彩色打印机

我们在本周早些时候介绍了这一内容,因此以下是整篇文章的简要介绍 :“ PrinCube是手持打印机-用户无需一次将纸送入打印机,而是将PrinCube一次在纸上移动一行。 。因为打印机是坐在表面上而不是使用纸盘,所以PrinCube不仅可以在纸张上打印,而且可以在更多的表面上打印,包括硬纸板,皮革,金属,塑料,织物,木材,有纹理的表面,甚至是用于定制临时纹身的皮肤。 ”

开关机器人窗帘—开窗帘机器人

自动窗帘已经存在了很长时间,但是其中的绝大多数需要相对复杂的安装过程才能开始使用。 Switchbot是不同的。得益于其巧妙的设计,您所要做的就是将其夹在窗帘杆上,然后按下“打开”按钮。安装后,它将沿着窗帘杆左右驱动,根据方向将窗帘推开或拉开。很聪明吧?

十月20

Eforge —电子产品用3D打印机

在过去的几年中,用于3D打印的材料数量激增。被PLA和ABS困住的日子已经一去不复返了。如今,制造商可以使用各种各样的细丝和材料类型,包括(但不限于)尼龙,玻璃,木材,甚至是导电材料。但是,即使有如此多的可用材料,也要打印现成的物体(尤其是电子产品)仍然​​相当困难。 Eforge试图改变这种状况。这种野兽具有六个不同的打印头和一系列导电材料,显然能够打印即用型电子设备,尽管相当简单。

Mochi机器人-儿童的无屏幕编码

这些天来,教孩子们如何编码的机器人一角钱。多数只是对相同确切想法的略有不同,但是Mochi很特别。在Kickstarter上我们见过的所有编码机器人中,它无疑是最好的。为什么?嗯,除了使用起来非常简单直观(它是为3至6岁的孩子设计的)之外,它还旨在教给他们编码和计算机逻辑的基础知识,而无需使用任何类型的屏幕。这样,他们不必呆呆地盯着平板电脑,可以通过触觉和动手过程学习。

Tero —台面堆肥设备

这听起来很疯狂,但不管您相信与否,在美国生产的所有食物中约有40%被浪费了。我们投入了各种时间和精力来生产它,但最终仍将其中的40%扔掉并送往垃圾填埋场。这是非常浪费的-但加拿大的暴发户Tero已经开发出了一些帮助。该公司的同名产品本质上是一种台面堆肥机,可将您的所有食物垃圾分解,分解并用于为您的花园创造营养丰富的土壤。它甚至带有臭味过滤器,以确保您的厨房不会闻起来像腐烂的食物。很漂亮吧?

Coolair —轻巧的充气式冷却器

Coolers are arguably the most cumbersome piece of outdoor recreation gear in existence. Sure, they're easy enough to toss in the trunk of your car and fill up with beer, but what if you want to take one with you on a longer hike, or perhaps just down a short trail to the lake? That's where inflatable coolers come in. Coolair certainly isn't the first entrant into this category, but it appears to be one of the best — at least in terms of design. Check out the video above to get a peek at some of the exceptionally clever features on this sucker.

Solidteknics Oz — wrought-iron skillet

Cast-iron skillets are, in many ways, the best cooking implement ever. They provide supremely even and consistent heat, you can put them in the oven, and if you care for them properly, they'll last a lifetime. But they do have some downsides, too. In addition to being a pain to maintain, they're also ridiculously heavy. Luckily, Solidteknics has devised an ingenious solution to this problem by using wrought iron instead of cast-iron. The company's new line of pans is claimed to cook exactly like traditional cast-iron, but without being so heavy and unruly.

Adaptalux — flexible lighting for macro photography

If there's one thing Kickstarter is good for, it's super-creative photography accessories. The latest addition? Adaptalux Flash Arms — a hyper-specific yet totally ingenious lighting solution designed for macro photography. It's basically a xenon bulb flash system that lives on the end of a set of gooseneck-style flexible arms, which allows you to position them closer to your subject and theoretically get better shots. Stuff like this — exceedingly clever but too niche for any big manufacturer to chase — is precisely the kind of stuff that probably wouldn't be possible without crowdfunding.

Legion Solar 4 — simplified solar panels

These aren't your average solar panels. In addition to being completely plug-and-play (in other words, you don't need professional help to install them), they also come with a super clever inverter system that allows you to use grid-tied solar energy without any special permission from your utility company. “We created SolarRegulator, an artificial intelligence computer to contain generated energy behind your meter where the utility company does not own,” the company explains. “Energy production of each micro-inverter is controlled so that energy production is less than or equal to energy consumption, allowing you to generate your own electricity unrestricted. [Your] utility company only sees less consumption from you, not a grid-tied solar system. As a result, it is not necessary to seek interconnection permission pertaining to utility company-approved grid-tied solar systems.”

Orbi Marine — waterproof, 360-degree video glasses

360-degree cameras are a dime a dozen these days, but just like most action cams, you still have to hold them or awkwardly mount them on your body somewhere. That's less than ideal if you're trying to film while doing something active. Furthermore, very few of them are waterproof — but Orbi Marine aims to solve both these problems in a single stroke. It's basically a set of rugged, waterproof glasses with built-in cameras positioned at various points along their frame/body. So, in addition to allowing you to film totally hands-free, these spectacles can also go anywhere with you — including the lake. Just don't try to wear them to a fashion show!

Whistler — self-healing windbreaker

High-performance textiles have come a long way in the past couple of decades, and now gear manufacturers have a veritable boatload of different materials to choose from when designing stuff. There's super-lightweight stuff like Dyneema, insanely strong stuff like Spectra, and even waterproof stuff like GoreTex or Futurelight. But the material in Whistler windbreaker makes the aforementioned textiles seem like they're from the Stone Age. This sucker is made from something called HiloTech nylon — a material that has self-healing abilities. If it ever gets punctured, all you need to do is pinch the fabric around the hole and rub it between your fingers. Due to the material's unique construction, this slight bit of friction and heat will cause the fibers to bond with each other and fuse together again — thereby filling the puncture.

Zero Co — Low-waste household goods

Single-use plastic is going the way of the dodo. It started with plastic grocery bags, and then we moved on to plastic straws. More recently, there's been a movement to eradicate plastic utensils. Next, if Zero Co has its way, we'll ditch single-use containers for household goods. The company has developed a system of reusable containers paired with a subscription-based mail-in refill program. The idea is that instead of buying a new bottle of window cleaner, laundry detergent, or whatever, they send you new ones when you run out, and you simply mail in your empty containers.

Bijou — pocket-sized projector

Tiny projectors aren't a new thing at this point, but this one is remarkably small. Like, so small that you can comfortably fit it in your pocket. Yet, despite the fact that it's roughly the same dimensions as a deck of playing cards, it's also equipped with some damn decent features. For example, it uses a MEMS laser beam scanning technology that allegedly allows it to project images at greater distances than DLP projection does, with better focus, and also with deeper blacks. I'm not sure how much I believe these claims, but if the creators deliver on their promises, this thing is practically guaranteed to be awesome.

Hunt23 — prybar flashlight

Flashlights are a handy thing to have with you at all times, but most people will agree that lugging around a full-sized flashlight is a bit of a pain. More often than not, it's easier just to skip the flashlight altogether and just use an app on your smartphone. But what if there was a flashlight so small that you'd hardly even notice you're carrying it? That's where the Hunt23 comes in. In addition to being one of the smallest torches in the world, it's also equipped with a fully functional prybar on the end. So now, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you have to pry staples out of hardwood flooring in the dark, you'll be prepared!

Tetracube — sustainable smartphone

Smartphones are a crucial part of modern digital life, but unfortunately, they're pretty awful for the environment. In addition to being filled with rare earth metals that can only be obtained through environmentally damaging mining operations, they also have relatively short lifespans and can leech toxic chemicals when discarded improperly. Tetracube aims to address all these issues.怎么样? With a phone that's guaranteed to last for at least 4 years.

Shine — automatic toilet cleaner

Cleaning your toilet is arguably the worst household chore there is, and as such, there are tons of different cleaning products that aim to make it easier and less of a hassle. Shine is the latest entrant into this long-standing product category, and it's got some neat tricks up its sleeve that help differentiate it from the rest of the pack. To clean your throne, it uses electrolyzed water — which sounds like total BS, but it's actually legit, and was developed in Japan to sanitize high-bacteria environments like sushi restaurants, without introducing harmful chemicals. Best of all, Shine is also voice-activated, so you can shout commands at it just like you do with Alexa.

Transformer Table 3.0 — expanding table and bench

This thing is brilliant. It's essentially an expanding table that, when fully extended, can accommodate 12 people — but that also collapses down small enough to be a table for two. The secret is a super clever rail system that's hidden underneath, and not only provides support for table leaves but can also extend to whatever length you desire. This is actually the third iteration of the Transformer Table, and it now comes with a nifty coffee table that you can store unused leaves in, or use as a furniture piece in its own right. Be prepared though: this thing ain't cheap!

Move — direct-to-consumer grocery service

You know how Warby Parker disrupted the eyeglass industry with a direct-to-consumer business model that cuts out the middleman (eyeglass retailers) and was, therefore, able to sell high-end glasses for drastically less than the competition? Remember how the same thing happened to the mattress industry when companies like Tuft & Needle and Casper figured out how to ship mattresses directly to your door? Well now, a company called Move wants to apply the same idea to grocery shopping. By cutting out the middleman, the company claims it can deliver groceries to your house for less than it costs you to buy them in a store. Now that's an idea we can get behind!

Doer — compact, portable toolshed

This thing is nothing short of amazing. It's basically a cross between a tool shed and a Swiss Army Knife. Inside, you'll find a cordless drill, a drill press, a scroll saw, a circular saw, a table saw, two kinds of hot wire cutter, a table sander, a mini lathe, a work light, and a lantern. Best of all, though, thanks to either black magic or extremely advanced Tetris skills, all of these tools somehow pack up and fit into a box no bigger than an average-sized cooler — which is why its creators are calling it “the most compact toolshed ever.” Shut up and take my money!

Keychron K4 — optimized wireless mechanical keyboard

Kickstarter has hosted hundreds — maybe even thousands — of keyboard projects over the years, and of all those projects, Keychron was behind three of the best. Now, the company is back with its fourth project: The Keychron K4. In the words of its creators, it's “ a 96% wireless mechanical keyboard. It has full-size functionality in a compact design with 100 necessary keys. It features two premium switch options enabling peak productivity, a great tactile typing experience, and a minimalist, unique, and sturdy design. With 15+ RGB backlights and a large battery capacity of 4000mAh, K4 is a power-packed keyboard for all keyboard enthusiasts.”

Mudita Pure — minimalist e-ink phone

At this point, it's no secret that screens are bad for our health — both mentally and physically. The science is pretty definitive: Focusing on things at a fixed distance for prolonged periods of time weakens our eyeballs and make our eyesight deteriorate, while blasting blue light into our rods and cones disrupts our natural circadian rhythms. And don't even get me started on how addicted we are to our phones. Mudita is an attempt to alleviate these problems. Instead of a bright, colorful screen, it uses an e-ink display that doesn't emit any artificial light. In theory, this should help you avoid too much blue light exposure, and also avoid the irresistible urge to check all those colorful notification icons.

Tilt Five — holographic tabletop gaming system

When it comes to augmented reality, everyone in the consumer electronics industry seems to be racing toward the same goal: The creation of an all-powerful, all-purpose set of AR glasses. But the thing is, AR doesn't need to be all-purpose. What if you applied augmented reality to a very specific use case? That's the idea behind Tilt Five, an innovative and highly specialized take on AR that focuses on tabletop gaming. I won't even try to explain any more than that — this is one where the pitch video paints a much more vivid picture than I ever could.

Printpen — handheld printer

Ever wished you could carry a printer around in your pocket? Probably not — but even though you never asked for it, somebody went ahead and created an inkjet printer that fits in the palm of your hand. Thing is, despite being so small, this printer is capable of printing things far larger than itself. Just wave it over the surface that you'd like to print on, and it will magically deposit ink onto it. It's like one of those label-maker machines, but supercharged and not limited to printing on tiny strips of paper.

Chasing Dory — compact underwater drone

Underwater drones are fairly common these days, but despite the fact that there are dozens to choose from, the vast majority of them are big, bulky, and likely a pain to haul to the beach. The Dory drone, however, is designed to be small and portable. Don't let its diminutive stature fool you, though — this thing appears to have all the same features and functionality as any other aquatic drone, including 1080P video capability, 8G of onboard storage, five thrusters for propulsion, headlights, and even smartphone controls.

Escape-S — self-charging smart suitcase

Practically all smart suitcases come with a built-in battery that allows you to charge your devices on the go. When those batteries run out, however, you'd better pray there's an outlet nearby, because the vast majority of smart suitcases still rely on outside power sources to fill up their batteries. The Escape-S is different. Thanks to a clever wheel design, this suitcase is capable of capturing and storing the energy you generate by rolling it. According to the creators, 10 minutes of rolling is enough to give your smartphone an extra two hours of battery.

Bundl — self-regulating heated sleeping bag

Do you need a “smart” sleeping bag? Probably not, but somebody built one anyway — and it's kinda awesome. Bundl, as it's called, is a heated sleeping bag designed with built-in sensors that monitor and regulate your temperature throughout the night, thereby ensuring that your level of comfort never fluctuates, no matter how cold it gets outside. It's more than just a heated mummy bag, though. It's also equipped with an unzippable footbox, armholes, and a device pocket, so you can wear it around camp like a goofy-ass poncho before you go to bed.

Axibo Pan/Tilt/Slide — AI camera controls for DSLR

Over the past year or so, AI-powered cameras that automatically track your subject have been on the rise, but up until now, they've typically been designed to work with lower-end cameras or smartphones. If you wanted to give AI superpowers to your DSLR, your only option was to build your own rig. Axibo Pan aims to solve that problem. It's basically a full-featured camera rig that gives artificial intelligence the ability to pan, tilt, and slide your camera for you — effectively turning you into a one-man video production crew.

Ecoflow Delta — battery-powered generator

We covered this one earlier in the week, so here's a quick cut from our full article : “If you've been looking for a portable power station to keep all of your devices charged and powered up while on the go, but have come away disappointed with the options, allow us to introduce you to the EcoFlow Delta. This charging station, which launched on Kickstarter last week, promises to deliver not only plenty of ports but an abundance of power too. So much so, that its designers claim it can even charge a Tesla.

EcoFlow's latest portable power station features an astounding six AC outlets, allowing users to plug in multiple laptops, LCD monitors, televisions, small appliances, and a wide variety of other items. The unit is also equipped with six USB ports, including two standard USB-A ports, two quick-charging 28-watt USB-A ports, and two 60-watt USB-C ports. It even has a 12-volt port (aka, a carport), giving the Delta the ability to charge up to 13 devices at the same time.”

Lifesaber — multipurpose electronic survival tool

Think of the lightsaber as an electronic Swiss Army Knife for outdoor enthusiasts. It can provide light, it can charge your gear, and it can even purify water for you. Hell, there's even a plasma arc lighter attachment that allows you to start fires in wind or rain. And the best part? It's equipped with a hand-crank, so you can power it up manually no matter where you are — rain or shine. The only thing it's missing is the ability to brew a hot pot of coffee

Haven — hammock/tent hybrid

Hammocks are all the rage right now in the camping/backpacking scene, but sleeping in a hammock isn't for everyone. If you're a side sleeper, a belly sleeper, or just can't sleep on anything but a flat surface, hammocks aren't ideal. That's where the Haven tent comes in. It's basically half tent, half hammock — so it brings the best of both worlds. It's suspended like a hammock, so it's easy to set up, but unlike a hammock, it's designed to hold an air pad and provide a flat surface for you to lay on. Best of all, there's also a built-in bug net, so you don't have to worry about being swarmed by mosquitos while you rest.

Encompass — half-mouth toothbrush

Tired of all the squeezing, scrubbing, spitting, rinsing, gargling, and flossing required to keep your pearly whites clean? For decades now, your only recourse from this mildly laborious task has been the electric toothbrush. But while these automatically oscillating tooth scrubbers are definitely a step in the right direction, they still don't remove all the tediousness and time consumption from the act of brushing your teeth. What if there was a way to get the same job done, achieve the same level of cleanliness, and do it in a fraction of the time?

Enter Encompass, the latest new-age toothbrush that (allegedly) finishes the job in a fraction of the time. Here's how it works: rather than the traditional toothbrush shape, Encompass employs a j-shaped bristle module that fully envelops one half of your mouth. From there, a pneumatic air system oscillates the bristles at high speed, allowing you to brush all your teeth — completely — in about 20 seconds.

Ferroflow — ferrofluid clock

Here's a quick excerpt from our full post, which was published earlier this week: “If everyone's favorite Marvel symbiote Venom was a clock, what would it look like? That may sound like a riddle, but it's not. It's a Kickstarter campaign. Simply called Ferrofluid Clock, it's an analog desk clock in which the hour and minute hands are made of an oily dark magnetic liquid, called ferrofluid, held in place by hidden magnets behind the face.”

“This magnetic liquid was invented by NASA in the 1960s to use as possible rocket fuel. Since then, many creative types have seized upon ferrofluid as a material due to its unusual, almost alien appearance and movement. Now you can use it to tell the time, too. (Note: the liquid used here, unlike NASA's original version, is non-combustible.)”
