3 Kickstarter Projects You Should Back This Week

This week we're focusing on projects that revolve around the all new Macbook and the iPhone.

Being limited to a one port has been a deterrent to some people buying the new Macbook.

These projects address that issue and more.

Let's take a look at 3 extremely popular projects that have seriously defied expectations.

 

HUB+ For USB-C: Get Your Macbook Ports Back

Got the new MacBook, but can’t work as you used to? The HUB+ has solved the single port issue.

Get all the essential ports you need.

  • 2 USB-C ports 
  • 1 SDXC card reader 
  • 1 mini DisplayPort (mDP 1.2 video output, 4k displays at 60Hz refresh rate)
  • 3 USB-A 3.0 \ charging ports 
  • Built-in lithium ion battery to charge ANY phone 

It also charges your laptop. Plug your power cord into the second USB-C port. The white USB-C to USB-C connecting cable comes with the Hub+.

 

As of writing the HUB+ has 14 days left to go to achieve funding, having raised a staggering $567,311 compared to their initial $35,000 goal.

Pre-orders can still be had for $79 in three colors - the retail price will be $99.

Estimated delivery date: July 2015

Your new MacBook is an engineering marvel- but you can't use any of your devices with it.

  • USB hub
  • USB-C to USB adapter
  • Power adapter

 

The Voltus campaign has 29 days to go and so far, they've doubled their goal by raising $61,388 when compared to their initial $32,000 prediction.

You can still get in as an early bird for $119, the Voltus will retail for $149!

Halo Back: World's First Smart Screen Protector

 

Halo Back is the first smart screen protector in the world.

The invisible back button let your iPhone go back easily. With this little magic, you can operate your phone with a single hand

Why do you need the Halo Back?

If you are using iPhone 6 /iPhone 6 Plus, you have probably felt our frustration: cannot reach back button on upper left corner, unable to control with one hand, drop the phone and break your heart.

Before: cannot reach back button on upper left corner

After: go back easily with invisible button

With 10 days to go, the Halo Back has raised a crazy $182,729, eclipsing their $20,000 original goal.

The Halo Back is available starting at $17 with 223 spots left out of the original 5,000!

Estimated delivery date: August 2015
