Titanium micro-sized tape measure, a magic wand, pen, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

CROWDFUNDING NEWS – This week we are bringing you several crowdfunding campaigns that are currently running on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. This week’s featured campaigns are products for EDC, home automation, and more. Check out my picks for this week’s notable crowdfunding campaigns.

Ti-Tape

What is it?

The Ti-Tape is a micro-sized pocket-friendly Titanium 3-foot long tape measure with a user-replaceable tape.

Why do I like it?

I like the Ti-Tape because it’s so tiny (about the size of a quarter) that it can fit in your pocket without you barely noticing that it’s there. You can always have a tape measure when you need it. Add in that you can replace the tape if it needs it and the Ti-Tape makes a great little EDC tool.

Where can I find more info?

The Ti-Tape campaign ends on 10/9/20 and they have more than met their funding goal of $8,500. You can pre-order a Ti-Tape starting at $39. After the Ti-Tape campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in November 2020. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Core ballpoint pen

What is it?

Core is a ballpoint pen with an anodized aluminum shell with a mechanism that has been inspired by the classic craft knife.

Why do I like it?

I like the Core pen because of its unusual and fidget worthy mechanism. It also looks cool.

Where can I find more info?

The Core pen campaign ends on 10/1/20 and they have already met their funding goal of $7,677. You can pre-order a Core pen starting at $51. After the Core campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in April 2021. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Sunsa Wand – The World’s Simplest Smart Blinds

What is it?

The Sunsa Wand is a retrofit solution that installs in 2 minutes and allows the automation of your existing blinds so that you can open and close them with Alexa or Google Assistant.

Why do I like it?

I’m all about easy ways to turn non-smart devices and things into smart devices and things without a lot of hassle. The Sunsa Wand claims to do just that with your existing horizontal, vertical and mini blinds. It runs on batteries or even an optional solar panel.

TalkSocket

What is it?

TalkSocket puts an Alexa Popsock on the back of your phone.

Why do I like it?

Alexa is my favorite digital assistant and I miss having an easy way to use it when I’m not near my Echo devices in my home. TalkSocket lets you have Alexa with you everywhere you go and also helps you keep a secure hold on your phone with the pop-up grip.

Where can I find more info?
