Meet Duet, the charging dock Apple Watch owners are going to love

The Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches you can buy, but it’s far from being perfect. The main problem with it for many users is its battery life. You’ll need to recharge the device nearly on a daily basis, even though the Watch can beat Apple’s own usage estimates. That means Apple Watch owners now have to worry about charging two devices and packing two different cables when traveling. More →

Nexpaq is a modular case that adds incredible new features to the iPhone 6 or Galaxy S6

Google’s Project Ara smartphones are not yet widely available, and neither are any other similar devices from the competition. But it’s more than apparent that some users are interested in such features from mobile devices. However, rather than making a new modular phone concept, one company has conceived a different kind of device that can offer the same sort of module-based experience to existing smartphones, including the iPhone.

Meet Nexpaq, a modular smartphone case for iPhone 6 and Android devices (including Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S5) that just launched on Kickstarter looking to raise $50,000. More →

An engineer has come up with a brilliant new cooler design that beer lovers will adore

With summer less than two months away, you’re probably thinking about going on some fun outdoor excursions that involve taking some beer with you in a cooler. However, the current coolers on the market are something of a bummer since they tend to be both heavy and unwieldy. Denver-based engineer Scotty Allen is trying to change all that, however, with a brilliant new cooler design that will make bringing beer along with you to picnics and hikes easier than ever before.

The incredible ‘gravity-defying’ iPhone 6 case is coming to Galaxy S6 too

The Zero G case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has already made an impression on Kickstarter fans, raising almost $70,000 with 12 days left in the campaign. But, unfortunately, the case that can adhere to any flat surface without falling was initially only compatible with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, meaning users who prefer other phones wouldn’t have been able to use one.

These Kickstarters want to fix the biggest complaint about the new Retina MacBook

The Retina MacBook is a remarkable piece of engineering, but the 12-inch ultra-slim computer does have one feature that’ll annoy many computer users: The single USB-C port that’s supposed to be used for both charging the battery and connecting peripherals. However, you won’t be able to do all these things at once without purchasing additional accessories. Apple already stocks a few models, but you might be better off looking at Kickstarter for a better solution, as there already are some products looking to fix the USB-C problem. More →

The case, currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, doesn’t just wrap around the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for added shock resistance — it also sticks to tables or even vertical surfaces, seemingly defying gravity in the process.

De La Soul Kickstarter Album

Interview: Hip hop pioneers De La Soul change the game again with crowd-funded album

Interview: Hip hop pioneers De La Soul change the game again with crowd-funded album

When groundbreaking hip-hop trio De La Soul decided it was time to make the group’s eighth album “And the Anonymous Nobody” – its first release in 11 years – the pioneering rappers had a vision for the collection of tracks they’re planning to release in September.

The group’s members knew, for example, they wanted to bring in an eclectic set of guests artists like rapper 2 Chainz and David Byrne of the Talking Heads. They wanted the music to turn heads and make a statement. Even more important – they wanted to go the crowd-funding route, to side-step the complications and interference of teaming up with a label, says the group’s Dave Jolicoeur.

On Monday, they unveiled a Kickstarter campaign for the album with a goal set at $110,000. Less than 24 hours later, the group had already topped the goal in a big way, with fan response bringing in pledges at the time of this writing that total more than $265,000. More →
