Perk Up! Indiegogo Launches Its Official Android App

There was a time, a few months ago, when I would check Kickstarter and Indiegogo every couple of days for new projects. I was fascinated by the ingenuity of entrepreneurs and creators and I wanted to keep an eye on all the new ideas that were just ripe for production. I haven't lost that interest, but after investing in dozens of crowd-funded projects — most of which resulted in really great products that I use and love, thankfully — I'm a bit less obsessed and more selective in my choices.

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?

$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.

Matchstick Is A $25 Streaming Stick Based On Firefox OS With Chromecast Compatibility, Currently Blowing Up On Kickstarter

Hardware Kickstarters are a risky business, but the makers of Matchstick have the hardware all nailed down. This is a streaming stick similar to the Chromeacast, but it's based on Firefox OS. There is apparently an appetite for such a thing because it's only taken a few days to smash through the original $100k funding goal.

Pressy Review: I Had No Clue Something Could Suck This Badly

I'm going to keep this short and sweet: Pressy is the worst product I've ever reviewed. I generally find some redeeming quality about even the worst products, but Pressy doesn't have one. It is, without question, complete garbage and a waste of money.

Four members of the Android Police team, myself included, backed Pressy on Kickstarter. Out of the four of us, roughly zero percent likes or uses it. In fact, in a recent poll conducted in the Android Police team chat, 100% of those who backed this project regret doing so.

Smart IR Remote Developer Launches AnyMote Kickstarter To Put Your Phone In Control Of All The Things

Home automation of any kind is a pretty tough market in which many products generally create more problems than they can solve. However, there are a rare few gadgets that don't aim too high or too low, and the results can be profoundly useful to the right customers. A new campaign on Kickstarter might just be primed to hit that sweet spot with a product called AnyMote, a remote-controlled universal remote.

Speaker/Light Bulb Hybrid 'LightFreq' Hits Its Funding Goal On Kickstarter With 25 Days To Go

 

Every once in a while, a truly cool idea ends up on Kickstarter, and LightFreq is one such case. It's simple, really: a Bluetooth speaker married with a Phillips Hue-like light bulb. So, a color-changing speaker in your ceiling. Yep, I'm already sold.

There will of course be companion apps available for both iOS and Android that not only control the music and lights, but also allow the handset to work with LightFreq for an in-house intercom system.
