$2,000 panorama ball Panono to charge $0.90 per image, enraging customers

Back in 2014, a German startup successfully launched the Panono 360 via Indigogo. It's a little ball sprinkled with lenses that you throw up in the air to create perfect 360 degrees panoramas with a whopping resolution of 108MP. While other crowdfunding campaigns fall short of delivering a product altogether, Panono appears to become a failure in another department, five years after its product launch. Starting this September, the company will charge €0.79 ($0.88) for each photo stitched together on its cloud platform, and customers are enraged.

That ridiculous Energizer 18,000mAh battery/phone raised just 1% of its Indiegogo goal (unsurprisingly)

You may remember that back in February at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Energizer unveiled a boatload of phones. The most bizarre of the lot had a humungous 18,000mAh battery, dual pop-up front cameras, and it could seemingly also be used to break through glass in an emergency. In news that will shock nobody, it has spectacularly failed to reach its lofty Indiegogo crowdfunding target.

$1299 will get you Meizu's no-port, no-hole, no-button phone on Indiegogo

When Meizu announced its concept Zero smartphone last week, the idea seemed outlandish, even if a logical continuation of the minimalism trend we've been seeing the last couple of years. At the time, Meizu swore the device existed and although we doubted that, it does look like the Zero will soon make its way into production as Meizu has opened up an Indiegogo campaign for it.

Laptop-phone Cosmo Communicator hits 350% of crowdfunding goal

A bit over a week ago, an Android phone with a PDA/laptop form-factor called the Cosmo Communicator hit Indiegogo. I know, I know, crowdfund projects are whatever, but the Cosmo has two interesting things going for it: the company behind it (Planet Computers) already has one similar success under its belt, and the project is already over 350% funded with three weeks left to go.

POGs are coming back, but this time they are going mobile

Well, to be honest, they aren't quite back yet, but they will be soon, and you can back the idea through the newly revealed Indiegogo campaign that just went live this morning. Apparently, it's been 25 years since POGs had a brief success in the early '90s, and now we all may get the opportunity to experience the forgettable collectible milk-cap slamming game all over again, but this time as an augmented reality mobile title. That's right, POGs AR will be the first officially licensed mobile game from the World POG Federation.

TicPods Free are affordable true wireless earbuds with touch controls from Mobvoi

Now that multiple Android OEMs have launched phones without headphone jacks, consumers have had to reluctantly concede that true wireless earbuds need to be a thing. And they are, with some compelling options out there from the likes of Jaybird, Bose, and Zolo (by Anker). They're still by no means cheap, however, so it's exactly the right time for the TicPods Free from Mobvoi to enter the fray.

Motorola attempts to breathe new life into Moto Mods with health tracker, keyboard, and another design competition

Lenovo-owned Motorola might have been onto something with its modular phone accessories for the Moto Z series, but a combination of slow development of compelling products and poor availability leaves them in a precarious position. Nevertheless, the company is pushing on with the project in 2018 and has some new Moto Mods coming soon, plus a new design competition.

Trek is a portable motorized slider for smartphones and GoPros, Indiegogo pre-orders available for one more week

Have you ever wondered how people make those timelapse videos where the view from the camera smoothly drifts from one point to another? These are done with a piece of gear called a motorized slider. They're generally large, unwieldy, and limited by unfriendly user controls. Enter Trek, a modular, motorized slider designed for smartphones, GoPros, and other lightweight cameras. It's app-controlled for easier use and more advanced routines than many other sliders.

The Moon is an all-seeing, levitating robotic eyeball that can control your home [Update]

We've seen levitating Bluetooth speakers and connected smart cameras before, but the Moon, a fully funded Indiegogo project, melds those technologies in a $209 ($330 at retail) floating robotic eyeball and base that can also act as a smart hub for your home. That is, if it ever ships. The typical crowdfunding caveats apply. Some Indiegogo projects don't have much of a future, and this is 1-Ring's first.

The Moon, which comes from 1-Ring Inc., comprises a wide-angle lens embedded in a sphere made of plastic, aluminum, and rubber. When the smart camera is levitating above its base unit, it can give its owner a 360-degree scan of whatever room it's placed in.

Sleep as Android team launches its own sleep-tracking hardware on Indiegogo

Sleep as Android is a hugely popular app in the Play Store with more than 10 million downloads.

The Sleep Phaser on Indigogo is a bedside sensor that tracks your sleep without any direct contact.
