Eve V going into production

Some of you may remember that I have been an avid follower of Eve-Tech and their crowdfunded 2-in-1 project. After an extremely successful Indiegogo campaign that was run at the tail end of 2016, the company is now ready to push into production. The potential shipping for the computer …

Elretron wants you take you back in time

Pah, modern technology. Who needs that eh? The guys at Elretron want you to take a journey back to the age of typewriters, when we had mechanical keyboards that went “Clack, Clack, Clack”. They’re just about to put their idea on Kickstarter and pricing is said to be …

Papa’s got a brand new p BAG

You may have bought yourself a phone cover with a couple of credit card slots in the back recently. It’s becoming a bit of a trend and, thanks to Android and Apple Pay becoming more popular too, we’re carrying more of our life around with us on our …

Adaptable Universal Docking Station from udoq

When I read the press release for this Kickstarter campaign for udoq it was hard to get excited about a docking station. However, I was impressed (from the video at least) of the build quality and it didn’t look like just another Chinese plastic stand. The docking station is designed …

Superbook – making your Chromebook redundant since July 2016

We have long been dreaming of the ability to make your Android phone more productive here at Coolsmartphone Towers. Today that dream came a bit closer to reality with a Kickstarter project called SuperBook, from the team behind Andronium OS. Here is a video of what it can …

Robin. The smartphone superhero?

To people like me, this could be a tough sell. It’s a smartphone which has cloud storage – around 100GB – to keep your files on. No more running out of space on your handset, at least in theory. Yes, there is actually storage on-board, some 32GB of …

The Monoshot… for improved smartphone photos/video.

I would say with some conviction that mobile phone photography is now a recognised sector of the photography world (have a look at the mobile specific groups on Flickr for example). As the quality of cameras improved in our mobile devices, the creative folk amongst us produce more …

The Dreamweaver Planner – the return of the Filofax.

   Those of us who are… Ahem… a little older – will with a fond heart remember the 80’s (let’s be honest the best decade for music), the birth of the Yuppie and the accessory always in the hand: the Filofax. Well, it appears that California company, Pacific …

Remix Mini launches on Kickstarter UPADATE

This is the one Kickstarter that in my humble opinion you cannot afford to miss. Do you fancy a PC for $20 with $20 for  shipping(£25.60 on todays exchange rate)? Interest piqued well I though it might be. There are of course some caveats to this. Numerou Uno …

Pebble Time update.

For a moment yesterday we were concerned that Pebble Time, a device we were waiting patiently for, was going to be nothing but vapourware. This morning there was a collective sigh of relief as, in our inboxes, we were greeted with an email from Kickstarter with an update …

Kickstarter mess up, Jide to the rescue

Some of you may be aware that I have been harping on about a Kickstarter project called Remix Ultra Tablet,  well it has been a huge success on Kickstarter so much that the actually sold out the entry level tier of $39 in seconds and the next one …

MWC – Pebble Time Steel announced

I’m currently trying to find ways to tell James that I’ve “accidentally” kept his Pebble watch. I’ve been here in Barcelona since Saturday, it’s not been charged once and it’s received endless notifications during that time. Email, calendar notifications and tweets all pop up and I’m just loving …

Pebble Time launches on Kickstarter

Today was a big day for Pebble. Just in case you have been living under a rock and dont know who Pebble are, they made the first truly usable Smartwatch that could work on both iOS and Android. That one was also funded through a Kickstarter project and …

I hope this is a joke. I hope this is a joke.

I’m really not sure where to start with this Kickstarter project. To be honest I’m glad that (at the time of writing) it’s only managed to achieve $1 of the $35,000 which is supposedly needed to put it into production. Now, we know that driving and texting is …

What phone? The NoPhone!

I’m not sure if I should be writing this article but if this picks up then I might be out of a job. Following on the heels of the BookBook from Ikea, comes the NoPhone. The NoPhone is a Kickstarter campaign that promises a “technology free alternative to …

ARQ – the kickstarter with curves

Kickstarter has always seemed to be the sort of place where venture capitalists hang out online when they’re slumming it. The idea of it is great, but what would make one want to shell out cash in the hope that a project makes it? Because of the design …

Move your hands and get music!

I find the crowdsourcing movement absolutely fascinating, the idea that people all over the world join forces and bet on new products or services is great. It’s like investment and market research in one same action. As this is my first post, I thought it would be appropriate …

A dock for every device you own

Looking through the crowd funding site Kickstarter I think my prayers have been answered with the Everdock. Well-made and nice-looking, universal docks that work with a variety of devices are hard to come by. The folks at FUZ Designs are hoping to solve that problem with EverDock. The …
