crowdfund

This week we take a quick look at five Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns for products that improve the fit and function of your sneakers, your TV, your Pizza cooking skills, your iMac and more. Click through to read about this weeks’ notable crowdfunding campaign picks.

HICKIES 2.0

What is it?
HICKIES 2.0 are an updated version of the original HICKIES shoelace replacement system.

Why do I like it?
No more tying your laces, a streamlined look with easy slip on and off are features that might make HICKIES one of the best things to happen to sneakers since they were invented. When using traditional shoelaces, there is just one lace for each shoe. With HICKIES, there is one set of HICKIES per pair of eyelets which allows for more customization of tightness.

With 19 days left in the campaign, The HICKIES 2.0 campaign has already surpassed their funding goal of $25,000. You can pre-order a set of 14 HICKIES starting at $14. After the HICKIES 2.0 campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2016. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

GoTouch

What is it?
The GoTouch turns any TV into a smart whiteboard.

Why do I like it?

I’ve had the GoTouch now for a couple weeks and have been able to share it with friends and family. The overall reaction has been an amazed “Wow!” when I started drawing on the TV. My college professor brother-in-law was interested in its use in the classroom. My application developer friend was interested in its use for collaborative teams. I have some presentations coming up where I plan to use it. I think my daughter-in-law had the most fun, and innovative, idea when she suggested it would be perfect for playing Pictionary.

PRISM Designs Float Shelf

What is it?
The PRISM Designs Float Shelf adds a small shelf on the back of current 21.5″ and 27″ iMacs.

Why do I like it?

If you’re tight on desk space or just want to add a cool look to a generic iMac, the Float Shelf will take care of that with style.

IRONATE – Perfect “no oven” pizza in just 3 minutes

What is it?
IRONATE is a carbon steel pan that will make a great pizza in 3 minutes. No oven needed.

Why do I like it?
Pizza in 3 minutes! Need I say more? Yes? Ok, it takes a little longer than 3 minutes when you add pre-heat time and prep, but anything that makes it easier to make a tasty pizza is a-ok in my book. The IRONATE uses special steel that holds heat like a wood fired pizza oven. The only “bad” thing is that you’re going to pay big for this pizza pan…

Where can I find more info?
With 10 days left in the campaign, The IRONATE campaign has already surpassed their funding goal of $20,000. You can pre-order an IRONATE pizza pan starting at $128. After the IRONATE campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2016. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Dash | Access Bifold Wallet

What is it?
The Dash Minimalist Access wallet is a thin bi-fold wallet that is small enough to fit in your front pocket.

Why do I like it?
It’s a minimalist wallet for people who prefer the look of a traditional wallet but also wants features like RFID protection and easy quick draw access to a favorite card without opening the wallet and sifting through cards.

Where can I find more info?
With 46 days left in the campaign, The Dash campaign has already surpassed their funding goal of $10,000. You can pre-order a Dash wallet starting at $20. After the Dash campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in June 2017. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
