Scribit – Turn your wall into an interactive canvas

What is it?
Scribit is a robot that has been designed to draw artwork on walls vertically.

Why do I like it?
I think Scribit unique and interesting because it can be used to add artwork to walls, erase the art and draw new artwork. It can draw on a surface up to 6.5 x 6.5 feet using 4 colored erasable markers and there’s a pod on its back that heats up to (149°F) 65°C and rolls across the design to erase the ink so a new drawing can be applied. You can use existing art or add your own using an app that can import file formats that include: .svg, .png, .ai, .pdf, .jpeg, .tiff.

Where can I find more info?
The Scribit campaign ends on 7/5/18 and they have already passed their funding goal of $50,000. You can pre-order a Scribit starting at $349. After the Scribit campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Atom, World`s Smallest 4G Rugged Smartphone

What is it?
Atom is a 4G smartphone powered by Android 8.1 that is tiny enough to fit in almost any pocket.

Why do I like it?
I reviewed Unihertz’s first phone the Jelly and thought it was a cute little Android phone that fit in my pocket. Atom is their next phone and it has an IP68 certification that means that’s waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof. Atom also features a fingerprint scanner, a programmable button, dual SIM card capability, NFC, and more. If you’re tired of big phones, Atom looks like a fun alternative. You can even take pictures using it while under water.

Where can I find more info?

ProPoint™ Mouse & Presenter. iPad/PC/Mac, office or travel.

What is it?
ProPoint is a tiny 3 button ergonomic pen-grip wireless mouse that can be used with your laptop and an iPad when remoted into a computer. It even doubles as a pointer for presentations.

Why do I like it?
ProPoint is an updated version of the Swiftpoint mouse that I reviewed over 7 years ago. It’s got to be the smallest full-featured mouse that I’ve ever seen and it even has a tiny USB charging dock that provides up to an hour of usage time just by plugging it in for 30 seconds. I also like that you can use it right on your laptop if you don’t have room for a mouse pad or you’re using your computer on your lap. That makes it perfect for travel.

HUMU Augmented Audio Cushion

What is it?
HUMU is a speaker built into a cushion that will not only let you hear sound, but it will let you feel it too. It uses patented hifi technology used by cinemas to provide an audio immersive experience for your music, games, and more.

Why do I like it?
I don’t really like wearing headphones most of the time and HUMU provides a similar experience without cutting you off from the outside world and without blasting your music so that it bothers everyone around you.

Where can I find more info?
The HUMU campaign ends on 7/5/18 and they are still working towards reaching their funding goal of $30,000. You can pre-order a HUMU starting at $199. After the HUMU campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in September 2018. Visit their Indiegogo page for all the details.

What is it?
INFENTO is a collection of modular kits that will enable you and your kids ages 0-14yrs to build llife-sizevehicles that they can ride.

Why do I like it?
I want an INFENTO kit for adults! It looks like so much fun to build your own bike, wagon, scooters, and more. They even have a kit with an electric motor.

EARTH: An immersive AR/AI experience & model of our planet

What is it?
EARTH is a 3D-printed, hand-painted globe that you use with a mobile app to learn about our planet using augmented reality.

Why do I like it?
I’ve always been fascinated with regular globes and EARTH looks like a very nice miniature globe. But when you use it with the app, it becomes a great learning tool for kids, and adults.
