AirPodPal, EyeQue, Air Deck 2.0 travel playing cards, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

NEWS – This week I have four crowdfunding campaigns for you to check out that are currently running on Kickstarter or Indiegogo.

AirPodPal– Makes Your AirPods Easier to Carry, Charge & Find

What is it?

The AirPodPal is a multi-functional case for the Apple AirPods.

Why do I like it?

It’s a clip-on case for your AirPods that has a built-in battery that extends the AirPods battery life or can be used to charge other gadgets and the case itself recharges wirelessly on a Qi charging pad.

Where can I find more info?

The AirPodPal campaign ends on 3/2/19 they have already met their funding goal of $15,057. You can pre-order an AirPodPal starting at $29. After the AirPodPal campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in April 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Air Deck 2.0 – The ultimate travel playing cards

What is it?

Air Deck is a pack of playing cards that have been specially designed for travel becuase they are tiny!

Why do I like it?

I just think they are cool because they are so compact that you can put a pack in your gear bag for an impromptu game no matter where you go. And since the cards are made of PVC, they are both tearproof and waterproof. Even the storage box is waterproof.

Where can I find more info?

The Air Deck campaign ends on 2/21/19 they have already passed their funding goal of $5,099. You can pre-order an Air Deck starting at $10. After the Air Deck campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in March 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

EyeQue VisionCheck, World’s 1st Automated Eye Test

What is it?

The EyeQue VisionCheck is a vision checker that works with an app on your phone and can fit in your pocket.

Why do I like it?

It’s exciting to see gadgets like this one that can help us detect health issues without having to go to the doctor. Of course, a gadget like the EyeQue will not detect serious eye problems as a real eye doctor can and I personally would not trade the EyeQue for my yearly eye appt. But for people with otherwise healthy eyes who might want to check their prescription every so often to see if it’s changed, this gadget looks pretty interesting.

What to consider before pledging

It appears that there are fees associated with using this device. The info is kind of vague about a $4.99 yearly fee and then other fees to use the service.

Where can I find more info?

The EyeQue VisionCheck campaign ends on 1/19/19 they more than met their funding goal of $25,000. You can pre-order an EyeQue VisionCheck starting at $40. After the EyeQue VisionCheck campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in March 2019. Visit their IndieGoGo page for all the details.

The Life Cup: Double Walled Titanium Cup

What is it?

Life Cup is a beverage cup that is made of titanium with a cool crystal finish.

Why do I like it?

Besides the fact that they look cool, these cups feature a double wall design so that they keep cold liquids cold and warm liquids warm without any condensation on the outside of the cup because no one likes a sweaty cup. They even give you a matching straw with each cup.

What to consider before pledging

The cup doesn’t come with a lid – unless they decide to offer one as an add-on later.

Where can I find more info?

The Life Cup campaign ends on 2/13/19 they are working towards their funding goal of $6,435. You can pre-order a Life Cup starting at $97. After the Life Cup campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in May 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
