The Best Premium Toiletry Bag For Traveling

blurb by Andy Jacobs

What is it?
A premium quality, durable, & versatile toiletry bag that lets you organize & pack your toiletries. It’s sleek, sturdy, and adaptable.

Why do I like it?
Many of us here at The Gadgeteer, myself included, are travelers of varying degrees. Two of the habits that typically help make my travels go more smoothly are organization and packing light. Gravel founders Lance Williams and Chris Livingston seem to agree, because this Premium Toiletry Pack they designed might just help with both. The pack has a ton of pockets in differed configurations specifically designed to separate and store various type of travel items, a full-opening zipper clamshell design, a hideaway hang strap, and multiple premium materials including a Tarpaulin PVC exterior for water resistance. And to top it all off, a Lifetime Warranty.

Where can I find more info?
The Kickstarter campaign kicked off June 19 and ends August 18, but Gravel has already vaulted past their funding goal of $12,000 with over $100,000 in pledges and 1,950 backers as of this writing. Pledge package pricing starts at $39 for the Early Bird package and combo packages are available. Estimated delivery is December 2017. Travel over to the Kickstarter campaign page for more details.

ORII – Your Voice Powered Smart Ring

What is it?
ORII is a “headset” that uses bone conduction to send sound through the bones in your finger and into your ear.

Why do I like it?
I like the ORII because it’s a headset that you don’t have to leave in your ear to send and receive calls. I always feel like a dork when I have a Bluetooth headset in my ear and I refuse to wear one in public to the grocery store, etc. With ORII, you’re already wearing the headset, but it’s on your finger, so it’s less dorky.

Where can I find more info?
With 21 days left in the campaign, ORII has already reached their funding goal of $30,000. You can pre-order an ORII ring starting at $119. After the ORII campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in February 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

ANCHOR CABLE – Last cable you will ever need

What is it?
ANCHOR CABLE is a stainless steel magnetic charging cable that can be used with USB-C, lightning, and micro USB enabled devices by way of special magnetic plugs that stay in the device’s charging ports like the Apple MagSafe connector on MacBooks.

Why do I like it?
I like the ANCHOR CABLE because magnets! And because it’s made of stainless steel. What’s there not to like? Seriously though, if I can’t have wireless charging for my iPhone, I want a MagSafe-like cable for it. Or even one for my 12″ MacBook for that matter because Apple likes to ruin everything and got rid of the MagSafe connector for their newer MacBooks…. sniff.

Where can I find more info?
With 15 days left in the campaign, ANCHOR CABLE has already reached their funding goal of $13,022. You can pre-order an ANCHOR CABLE starting at $34. After the ANCHOR CABLE campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in January 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Swidget™ Outlet: The Smart Home Device for All Platforms

What is it?
Swidget is a replacement AC wall outlet that uses your home’s existing wiring to make your home a smart home with special inserts that plug into the outlet to add various capabilities.

Why do I like it?
I like Swidget because it’s a neater way to add smart home features without having plugs sticking out of walls or modules that you have to find room for on shelves and tables. It’s also customizable. You choose the features you want like temperatures sensors, USB ports, motion detectors, etc.

Where can I find more info?
With 36 days left in the campaign, Swidget still has some work to do before they will reach their funding goal of $40,000. You can pre-order a Swidget starting at $38. After the Swidget campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in June 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

DJIN: The Wallet, perfected.

What is it?
DJIN is a small wallet that has a clip for cards and bills, a slide pocket for coins, keys and USB sticks, and a secret stash-drawer for smaller items like SIM and flash cards.

Why do I like it?
I like DJIN because it’s an interesting example of a minimalist wallet. It’s a bit thicker than some minimalist wallets, but I like the fact that it has a drawer for coins, keys and more.

Where can I find more info?
With 31 days left in the campaign, DJIN has already reached their funding goal of $25,000. You can pre-order a DJIN starting at $39. After the DJIN campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2017. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
