CROWDFUNDING NEWS – It’s time for me to tell you about a new batch of interesting crowdfunded campaigns. Today I have 4 campaigns from Kickstarter that range from a scanning accessory for 3D printing enthusiasts, a unique EDC item, and more. Enjoy!

Revopoint MINI 3D Scanner

What is it?

The Revopoint MINI 3D Scanner is a professional grade portable 3D scanner that uses a high resolution industrial-grade blue light that provides 0.05mm point distance, 0.02mm high precision, and scanning speeds of 10fps.

Why do I like it?

I like the Revopoint MINI 3D Scanner because this scanner is so precise that you can use it to make highly detailed jewelry and other intricate models. It’s like having your own replicator from Star Trek!

Compared with traditional scanners, blue light scanners deliver more accurate results with high resolution and less distortion. The MINI is released to better reach professional practitioners and consumers in related industries, such as the scenarios of reverse engineering, industrial measurement, jewelry design, and other professional areas. Plus, blue light scanners are less sensitive to ambient light, achieving greater detail even in lighted environments, resulting in more accurate 3D modeling at the touch of a button. The 3D point cloud maps the object surface at a point distance of 0.05mm and delivers super-detailed 3D models with an accuracy of 0.02mm, precise enough for professional inspection and analysis.

Here at The Gadgeteer, we are already familiar with Revopoint scanners because we just recently reviewed the Revopoint Pop 2 3D high-precision scanner. If you’re serious about your 3D printing hobby, this scanner could make your models even better.

The Revopoint MINI 3D Scanner campaign ends on 7/16/22 and they soared past their funding goal of $12,744 to over a million dollars! You can pre-order a Revopoint MINI 3D Scanner starting at $436. After the Revopoint MINI 3D Scanner campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in August 2022. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Neo-Spec

What is it?

Neo-Spec is a pocket-sized magnifier that has been designed as a cool EDC item.

Why do I like it?

I like the Neo-Spec because it’s from TEC Accessories. This company offers a variety of cool items that we’ve reviewed over the years and the Neo-Spec is their latest which offers a 5X lens in an aluminum or titanium case.

The Neo-Spec campaign ends on 6/16/22 and they have already met their funding goal of $7,800. You can pre-order a Neo-Spec starting at $68. After the Neo-Spec campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in August 2022. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

ShiftCam SnapGrip Magnetic Snap-on Camera Grip

What is it?

The SnapGrip is an all-in-one, MagSafe compatible, grip, dock, and charger for iPhones that provide additional point and shoot style camera features.

Why do I like it?

I like the SnapGrip because it’s a more compact version of the ShiftCam ProGrip which I recently reviewed. Snap it to the back of your iPhone and you get a comfortable grip with a built-in shutter button that makes taking photos and shooting video easier.

Where can I find more info?

The SnapGrip campaign ends on 7/30/22 and they have already passed their funding goal of $10,000. You can pre-order a SnapGrip starting at $63. After the SnapGrip campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in August 2022. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Case X

What is it?

Case X are special add-on “cases” for the MacBook Pro that add a 6-port USB-C hub and up to a 4TB SSD for extra storage (for the Case X with storage version).

Why do I like it?

I like the Case X because it’s a unique accessory for MacBook Pros that make dongles a thing of the past because it has a built-in SD and microSD card reader, 2 USB-A ports, 4K HDMI, 100W USB-C charging, and up to 4TB of SSD storage.

Where can I find more info?
