Headphones, charging docks, pens, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

NEWS – Today I have a selection of five Kickstarter and Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns that I think are interesting enough that you’ll want to check them out. Click through to see this week’s notable crowdfunding campaigns.

Heari | Smart tailored audio headphone with Aumeo

blurb by Bill Henderson

What is it?

Heari is a wireless in-ear headphone that uses tailored audio and audio transparency to customize sounds to each ear’s hearing sensitivities.

Why do I like it?

US laws have changed making it possible for audio companies to affordably customize each audio device specifically to the individual. Like a hearing test, Heari uses an iOS or Android app to measure each ear by eight frequencies and adjust the sounds accordingly. The accuracy of the hearing profile setup is 97% of what happens with an audiologist hearing test – now in only 2-3 minutes for about 1/30th of the cost. The headphones have one unidirectional mic so you can focus in and hear just one person talking in a noisy bar—and another mic that picks up other sounds so you can hear everything around you more clearly. Heari is ideal for music and phone calls as well.

The Heari campaign has surpassed its $51,000 goal with 35 days left in the campaign. You can order a single-driver gold edition for $99 US or a dual-driver version for $179 US. Each has an estimated delivery date of December 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Dock Me – The only charger you will ever need

What is it?

Dock Me is a free-standing charging hub for devices with wireless and non-wireless charging capabilities.

Why do I like it?

I like the Dock Me hubs because it allows you to charge multiple devices without having them scattered all over your desk. Instead, there are shelves for the devices so the footprint of the hub is smaller than all the devices by themselves and it keeps your desk tidy.

Where can I find more info?

The Dock Me campaign ends on 7/9/18 and they have already passed their funding goal of $7,616. You can pre-order a Dock Me starting at $88. After the Dock Me campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

ZEROHOUR APEX BOLT ACTION: Titanium Pen + Hidden Multi-Tool

What is it?

APEX BOLT ACTION is a pen with some built-in extras that EDC fans will appreciate.

Why do I like it?

I like the APEX BOLT ACTION pen first for its cool bolt mechanism, and then for the built-in extras like the ceramic glass breaker tip, and hex bit driver in the barrel. And let’s not forget, the pen is made of titanium.

Where can I find more info?

The APEX BOLT ACTION campaign ends on 7/27/18 and they have already passed their funding goal of $10,000. You can pre-order an APEX BOLT ACTION pen starting at $59. After the APEX BOLT ACTION campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in September 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Bibo Barmaid- Delicious Cocktails in 20 Seconds!

What is it?

Bibo Barmaid is like a Keurig coffee maker but for booze! It takes the mess and guesswork out of making your favorite cocktails.

Why do I like it?

I like the Bibo Barmaid because it’s designed to be the perfect bartender who makes your favorite drink in 20 seconds without the hassle or mess. It uses drink pouches with a code that the Barmaid can read so it knows exactly how to make the drink in a flash. We have a full review of the Bibo Barmaid coming soon. This campaign is for their new stainless steel version of the Barmaid and 3 new drink flavors. But you can already buy the Barmaid through their site if you don’t want the new stainless steel version.

Where can I find more info?

The Bibo Barmaid campaign ends in one month and they are still working towards their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a Bibo Barmaid starting at $129. After the Bibo Barmaid campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in August 2018. Visit their Indiegogo page for all the details.

Eclipse: The Morphing Coin Shaped Everyday Carry Knife

What is it?

Eclipse is a circular shaped knife that morphs into a nano bladed knife with a quick press.

Why do I like it?

I like the Eclipse because it’s unique. I’m not convinced it’s ultra useful, but for someone who collects knives and EDC pocket gear, it sure looks cool. It even has a built-in bottle opener.

Where can I find more info?

The Eclipse campaign ends on 8/26/18 and they more than halfway to their funding goal of $20,000. You can pre-order an Eclipse starting at $49. After the Eclipse campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in October 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
