When the time came to unveil its second generation smartwatch, Pebble returned to the crowdfunding site where everything began.

Pebble Returns To Kickstarter For The Pebble Time With Color Screen, Backer Hardware Starts At $159

Can a grown-up company return to the kiddie pool of Kickstarter funding to help with its new product? Of course it can - this is how development works now! This morning the makers of Pebble announced Pebble Time, the company's second generation of Pebble hardware, launching exclusively through a Kickstarter funding campaign (like the record-breaking original two years ago).

Beam, An Android-Powered Light Socket Pico Projector, Reaches Its $200,000 Kickstarter Goal

There are a lot of weird convergence devices that have come and gone (and often gone nowhere) on fundraising platforms, but the Beam is probably unique. It's a combination Android-based computer and pico projector that fits in and is powered by a standard light bulb socket, allowing users to set up a small projector and/or media machine in some unconventional places. The campaign has reached and surpassed its $200,000 funding goal on Kickstarter with more than three weeks left before the end of the campaign, meaning it will (hopefully) go into production and be ready for backers in October of this year.

The Matchstick is, or someday may be, a $25 media streaming stick that's similar to the Chromecast, but based on Firefox OS.

The Kickstarter project amassed nearly five times its $100k funding goal by the time the campaign ended in October.

Now for the bad news. The project announced today that it's not going to meet its goal of shipping this month.

Hands-On With Sarvi Dock, A Sleek New Versatile Docking Solution Currently Seeking Funding On Kickstarter

I've always loved accessories for my mobile gadgets, and docks are typically some of my favorites. But in a world packed with more docks than you can shake a stick at (I oftentimes shake sticks at docks for whatever reason), it's difficult to find something new and compelling. In fact, the last dock I was truly impressed by was 2040's Arq Dock, a pretty versatile little dock in its own right.

Hush's Smart Earplugs Reach And Blast Through Their Kickstarter Goal

We're all sleeping less and sleeping worse. Our demanding life carries over from work or school to home and social gatherings, and noise pollution is everywhere disturbing us even when we do eventually fall asleep. That's the problem Hush aims to solve.

Foam earplugs are wearable, by default, but they're not smart. Hush adds electronic components into them, making them connect to your Android (or iOS) smartphone via Bluetooth and play some soothing sounds.

Kickstarter's SteelConnect M Adds A Hook Or A Strap Adapter To Your Moto 360, Might Look Cool As A Pocket Watch

All this technology is ruining us, isn't it? I mean, people are wearing watches now because they are too lazy to take their phone out of their pocket. That's insane. Don't you long for simpler times, when sending a message meant sitting at a desk and dipping a quill pen in ink? If you do experience this kind of nostalgia, you might be able to rekindle your relationship with the past thanks to this Kickstarter project.

$15 SALT Card Promising 'Keyless Entry For Your Phone' Reaches $50k Kickstarter Funding Goal

Re-entering PINs or patterns to unlock a smartphone several hundred times a day is a mind-numbing process, so it comes as no surprise that a couple thousand people have rallied behind a way to prevent them from having to do so. SALT is a Bluetooth-connected card that goes into your wallet and, as long as it's in range, saves you from having to interact with a lockscreen. Once it's not in reach, the lockscreen returns.
