ROBOT RISE! card game, SYWOS One workout device, Eco Scoop, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

Ready to part with some money? Check out this week’s collection of 5 crowdfunding projects that I think look interesting and worthy of your pledges.

ROBOT RISE! Card Game

What is it?
ROBOT RISE! is a 2-4 player card game that has been created by a fellow gadget loving friend of mine Craig Froehle and his family who live in Cincinnati Ohio.

Why do I like it?
I like the ROBOT RISE! card game because robots! First of all, you can play this game with as few as 2 players and a time investment of only 15-30 minutes. The idea is that you are a mad scientist and your goal is to destroy the lairs of the other mad scientists (other players in the game) by building robots.

Besides the fact that I know Craig and want to see him succeed with this campaign, I think the game sounds like a lot of fun.

Where can I find more info?
With 9 days left in the campaign, the ROBOT RISE! campaign is close to reaching their funding goal of $7,500. You can pre-order the ROBOT RISE! game starting at $19. After the ROBOT RISE! campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in February 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

SYWOS One exercise device

What is it?
SYWOS One is a portable workout device that trains opposing muscles in one cycle.

Why do I like it?
I like the SYWOS One because it’s portable, takes up very little storage space, and it can cut your workout time by working two muscle groups because there is resistance in both directions of the movement. It’s not just good for arms, but you can use it to build up strength in your chest, shoulders, legs, and back too.

Where can I find more info?
With 31 days left in the campaign, the SYWOS One campaign has already reached their funding goal of $29,520. You can pre-order the SYWOS One game starting at $117. After the SYWOS One campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in October 2017. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Eco Scoop – Credit card size Pop-up Eating Utensil

What is it?
Eco Scoop is an individually packaged folding spoon designed and invented by a guy who worked for Sir James Dyson for 10 years.

Why do I like it?
Eco Scoop is an easy to carry spoon for on the go eating. When you’re done with it, you can throw it on the compost heap where it will biodegrade in just 4 weeks compared to the 500 years that a typical styrene spoon takes because the Eco Scoop is made of a wood based biopolymer.

Where can I find more info?
With 25 days left in the campaign, the Eco Scoop campaign still has a lot of work to do before reaching their funding goal of $28,350. You can pre-order a pack of 10 Eco Scoops starting at $5. After the Eco Scoop campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2017. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Specdrums: Music at Your Fingertips

What is it?
Specdrums are rings that turn colors into sounds when you tap them.

Why do I like it?
I like Specdrums because you can use them to turn any color into any sound which allows you to easily create your own “instruments” in seconds.

Where can I find more info?
With 23 days left in the campaign, the Specdrums campaign has already blown past their funding goal of $15,000. You can pre-order a Specdrum ring starting at $34. After the Specdrums campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in January 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Spinbox – A DIY Portable Turntable Kit

What is it?
Spinbox is a kit with all the parts necessary (including a speaker) to build a turntable in as little as 30 minutes.

Why do I like it?
I like the Spinbox because it’s a building kit and I’ve always enjoyed building things. Especially things that you can actually use after you’re done building them. This kit doesn’t even require soldering.
