Reinvented scissors, titanium pens, a messenger bag and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

{ 0 comments }

crowdfund

This week I have news about four Kickstarter campaigns. Three of these products are things that I’d actually like to have and use. One of the products is kinda weird and I probably wouldn’t use because I may be part vampire… Huh? You’ll just have to click through to understand what I’m talking about.

Right Shears – Natural Grip Scissors

What is it?
We all have a pair of scissors in a drawer somewhere in our office or house. The design of scissors hasn’t changed since they were invented. At least not till now. Right Shears are scissors that have the cutting blades at a right angle to the handles.

Why do I like it?
These new scissors are supposed to provide a more natural grip that makes cutting paper and other materials easier and more comfortable. This is especially true for people with dexterity issues or arthritis.

Where can I find more info?
With 35 days left in the campaign, the Right Shears campaign already passed their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a pair of Right Shears for $14. After the Right Shears campaign ends, the rewards are estimated to start shipping in February of 2017. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Ti Arto : The Ultimate Refill Friendly Pen

What is it?
Ti Arto is a solid titanium pen that can be used with over 200 types of refills without needing any modifications or hacks.

Why do I like it?
I’m a sucker for cool pens and this one looks ultra cool because it will work with all my favorite styles of refills including my current favorite the Pilot G2. The Ti Arto also has a unique tip holding design that I’ve never seen before that securely holds the tip and allows you to adjust the length.

This is a BIGiDESIGN pen, so it’s going to be good because I’ve reviewed their pens before.

Where can I find more info?
With 38 days left in the campaign, the Ti Arto campaign already greatly passed their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a Ti Arto for $65. After the Ti Arto campaign ends, the rewards are estimated to start shipping in November 2016. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

SunZee Wearable sunscreen dispenser for on-the-go protection

What is it?
SunZee is a sunscreen lotion dispenser that you can wear on your wrist so you’ll always it sunscreen at your fingertips.

Why do I like it?
This is one of those products that is kooky, but is still useful. Protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun is obviously important. Wearing this product means that you won’t have an excuse not to reapply sunscreen to exposed areas of your body when you’re outdoors enjoying the sun. This dispenser is not going to hold a lot of lotion, so it’s probably only going to be useful for keeping your face protected, but it’s better than not having any sunscreen at all.

Where can I find more info?
With 21 days left in the campaign, the SunZee campaign already passed their funding goal of $50,000. You can pre-order a SunZee for $45. After the SunZee campaign ends, the rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2016. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

7ven Messenger

What is it?
The 7ven Messenger is an everyday bag that combines the best features of a messenger bag, duffle bag, and a briefcase into one bag.

Why do I like it?
It’s a messenger bag, which is my favorite style of EDC bag. I like this one because it has a magnetic latch (I hate Velcro and pinch clips), quick access and pockets on the exterior of the bag, a water holder, carry handle, and lots of great organization inside the bag. It also has a triangle shape so it sits nicely on a flat surface without falling over.

Where can I find more info?
With 29 days left in the campaign, the 7ven Messenger campaign already passed their funding goal of $15,000. You can pre-order a 7ven Messenger for $139. After the 7ven Messenger campaign ends, the rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2016. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
