CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Today I have 4 interesting Kickstarter campaigns for products that I’d love to try myself!

Roadie Coach: Music Tutor, Smart Recorder & MIDI Controller

What is it?

Roadie Coach is a multi-tool for guitar, ukulele players, and singers. It clamps on the instrument and can be used as a music teacher/coach that helps you learn songs from a library of 100’s of songs. It also listens as you play or sing to provide advice to help you improve your playing or singing. It can even be used as a multi-track recorder.

Why do I like it?

I use the Roadie 3 Tuner, so I already know that they make quality accessories for guitar, bass, ukulele, and other stringed instruments. The new Roadie Coach looks like another great tool for people who want to improve their playing or singing.

Something to consider before pledging

The only issue I can see with this product is that it requires a $9.99 monthly (or $99.99 yearly) membership in order to get access to the song library.

Where can I find more info?

The Roadie Coach campaign ends on 02/24/22 and they met their funding goal of $10,000 within minutes of launching the campaign. You can pre-order a Roadie Coach starting at $149. After the Roadie Coach campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in October 2022. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

knyphe | Phone Case + Everyday Carry Knife

What is it?

knyphe is an iPhone case that is designed to hold a machined stainless steel knife/blade in a built-in slot in the corner of the case.

Why do I like it?

I like the knyphe case because will allow you to have a true EDC knife that won’t require any extra space in your pocket.

Something to consider before pledging

Right now, the knyphe iPhone case is only available for the iPhone 12 series of phones. I think that’s a huge mistake not offering cases for the 13 series of iPhones too.

Where can I find more info?

The knyphe campaign ends on 03/11/22 and they are working towards their funding goal of $30,000. You can pre-order a knyphe starting at $89. After the knyphe campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in September 2021. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Microwave Duo Cover

What is it?

The Duo Cover is a silicone splatter guard for microwave cooking.

Why do I like it?

I like the Duo Cover because I’ve exploded food in the microwave many a time and it’s NOT fun cleaning it up. I like the Duo Cover because it collapses and uses magnets to stick to the roof of the microwave so it’s always there ready to be used.

Where can I find more info?

The Duo Cover campaign ends on 02/05/22 and they blasted past their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a Duo Cover starting at $30. After the Duo Cover campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in August 2022. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Adriano

What is it?

Adriano is a dock for your old smartphone that turns it into a home automation hub that can control ZigBee, Z-Wave devices using WiFi and Bluetooth.

Why do I like it?

I like Adriano because it’s a cool way to repurpose an old smartphone that would otherwise be gathering dust in a drawer or worse, thrown in a landfill. I also like that it has built-in sensors and a microphone and camera that allows you to interact with it using gestures.

Where can I find more info?

The Adriano campaign ends on 02/04/22 and they have already met their funding goal of $11,222. You can pre-order an Adriano starting at $79. After the Adriano campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in May 2022. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
