Console OS Gets Funded On Kickstarter, Aims To Bring Android To The PC In A Non-Sucky Way

Running Android on a PC seems like a good idea, until you actually look at the logistics of making the platform work on a non-touch interface. Add to that all the projects out there attempting to do so with limited or completely absent support for Google Play, and you've got a recipe for lame. Console OS was looking for a cool $50k to make Android work on PCs, and the company has succeeded with almost a month left in the campaign.

ODIN Android-Powered Portable Micro Projector Reaches Its $250,000 Kickstarter Goal

If you can put Android into a watch, or a car, or a stove, you can cram it in just about anywhere. And given that last option, placing it into a micro or "pico" projector seems like a pretty good idea. ODIN is a Kickstarter project aiming to do just that, expanding an already flexible gadget by throwing in a little extra electronics and Android for media-focused apps. The Kickstarter campaign passed its $250,000 goal this weekend, and it's got a day and a half left to go.

Earin Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Destroys Its £179,000 Kickstarter Goal In Just Three Days

No matter how many sets of wireless earbuds I've reviewed, there's always one glaring issue that we've all come to accept: wires. Somewhere on every set of 'buds is at least one cable – usually connecting one bud to the other. It's annoying, but it's something we've all learned to live with since Bluetooth buds became a thing.

The guys who created a new Kickstarter project called Earin, however, want to turn the Bluetooth bud biz on its head with these independently-operating speakers that are completely free of any and all wires.

Why do you have so much stuff on your table? What if there was only one thing that could charge your phone, play music, tell you the time, and do a bunch of other stuff? That would be cool, but there isn't. There will be soon, though, now that Glowdeck has hit its Kickstarter goal. Just set your phone on the Glowdeck, and the magic happens (allegedly).
