The Superbook Android laptop has passed $1 million in Kickstarter funding

We're careful about covering hardware Kickstarters because so many of them fail to deliver. The Superbook laptop dockfirst popped up a few months ago, then it hit Kickstarter last week. Whether or not this device lives up to the hype, there's enough hype that you should probably be aware of it. The Superbook has already pulled in more than a million dollars, and there are still a few more weeks left in the campaign.

[Hold The Door] Kickstarter's Latest Android Changelog Contains Bug Fixes... And Hodor

If you're a Game Of Thrones fan, you're likely well aware of the "hold the door" meme that has transfixed a good portion of the internet for the last couple of weeks. Kickstarter, too, it seems, is engrossed with the series' doorstopper of a storyline, as their latest changelog takes "Bug fixes and performance improvements" to a whole new level.

Pebble Launches Kickstarter For Pebble 2, Time 2, And Core

We reported on Pebble's site yesterday, noting that it was teasing a big announcement, which we expected to be a watch. (Although we were kind of off on the shape of said new watch.)

Pebble's not launching just one watch, though: it's launching two, plus a whole new product. The two new watches are sequels to the Pebble and the Time. Predictably, they're called Pebble 2 and Time 2. slowclap.gif

Pebble 2

The Pebble 2 is a thinner, lighter version of the original Pebble watch that launched on Kickstarter four years ago. It looks pretty much like that watch, with the same sort of chunky but quite good-looking rectangular face and bezels.

2VR Kickstarter Project Promises To Make A VR Headset Out Of Hipster Glasses And Hooks

Some people consider virtual reality exciting. Full disclosure: I'm not one of those people. The idea of shoving a screen inches from my face and combining that with sensory deprivation sounds closer to punishment than fun.

The 2VR Kickstarter project addresses one of those issues. In doing so, it doesn't turn VR into something you can experience without having to block out the rest of the world. Instead, it shows off a compromised experience that is neither immersive enough for VR nor transparent enough to use in public.

Kickstarter Launches Official Android App—Hopefully Future Updates Aren't Stretch Goals

Here's an idea. Tell me if I should get it crowdfunded. We'll create an Android app for Kickstarter. Wait, before you scoff, hear me out. This way you don't have to fiddle around with opening the site in a browser or opting to sit down at a laptop instead. As soon as you get the urge to throw your money at a project, you can do so.

New Smartphone Maker Nextbit Debuts Robin, A Cloud-Focused Handset With A $500k Kickstarter Funding Goal And Pretty Compelling Specs

Ready for a new smartphone from a new smartphone maker that you can only get from a new Kickstarter page? Nextbit hopes so. The company that's made from ex-Android and HTC employees has announced its debut smartphone, Robin.

Nextbit comes from the minds of former Android employees Tom Moss and Mike Chan, along with former HTC designer Scott Croyle, who led the team that brought us the HTC One M7 and M8. Robin's design, if nothing else, is unique. The phone is rectangular with sharp corners and pastel colors. Though with the inclusion of a black border around the screen along with speaker grills at the top and bottom, you can see some lingering aspects of HTC design.

Classic Educational Puzzle Game Zoombinis Comes To Android After A Successful Kickstarter Campaign

Ah, the 90s, when computers were only good for Word Perfect, Minesweeper, and whatever "edutainment" software the school had budgeted for this year. One of the standouts among some pretty decent educational games was Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, a series of puzzles centering around the titular tiny Smurf-like critters. If you have fond memories of that game, or later entries in the series, mosey on over to the Play Store. A new and updated version is now available for download.

This remake of the original game, now simply titled "Zoombinis," follows a successful revival of the series on Kickstarter.

Znaps On Kickstarter Adds A MagSafe-Style Connector To Your Phone For $9

Even if you figure out which way the connector plugs into your phone, it's still plugging in, right? That's awkward to do with one hand and provides a great way to get your phone yanked off the table if you trip over the cord. Znaps is a product that's currently tearing it up on Kickstarter that could make everything better. For $9 you get a tiny magnetic adapter that makes plugging in your phone a snap, er—Znap. Whatever.

Jide Tech Is Back On Kickstarter With The Remix Mini, A 64-Bit Mini Android PC Running Remix OS And Starting At $20

If the names Jide Tech and Remix sound oddly familiar to you, it's because we've previously talked about the Chinese company's Kickstarter project for an 11.6" Android tablet with a full keyboard and multi-window support (an Android Surface essentially) that was going for $39 in its Early Bird pledges. After the success of that campaign, Jide appears to have hit a rough patch with its delivery courier but most users seem to have finally received their tablets and are quite happy using them, as the project's comment section shows.

Jide, which was founded by 3 ex-Googlers, is now back with another Kickstarter project for a new Android product that runs its Remix OS.
