3 Kickstarter Projects You Should Back This Week, June 9th, 2015

This week we're focusing on projects that aim to streamline the technology that permeates our daily lives.

These projects will change the way we communicate and interact with our environment.

We at BiteMyApple find these advancements to be incredibly exciting, and we're sure you will too!

 

The Light Phone

A credit card-sized cell phone designed to be used as little as possible. The Light Phone is your phone away from phone!

 

Calls forward, distractions don't. Light enables simple contact without unwanted rings, dings and pings.

  • Light is a credit card-sized phone that works with your existing phone.
  • It's designed to be used as little as possible

With Light, everything but the phone itself has been stripper away. The only essential connection that the user needs is what remains.

 

As of writing the Light Phone has raised $366,233 compared to their original $200,000 goal.

Pre-orders can still be had for $100! All of the early bird specials (unless you buy 4 at a time) are gone.

Estimated delivery date: May 2016

Here Active Listening - Change The Way You Hear The World

HERE IS A WIRELESS INTERACTIVE LISTENING SYSTEM

Through two truly wireless, in-ear buds and a smartphone app, Here allows you to instantly control real world audio so you can hear what you want to hear - no matter the situation - and be fully immersed in your audio environment.

Here does not stream or play recorded music. Instead, the Digital Signal Processor (DSP) inside Here acts as a studio in your ears by providing you with a volume knob, equalizer and effects to transform real world audio.

Use this “remote control for your ears” to have an optimal listening experience every time.

HERE PROVIDES AUDIO CURATION TOOLS FOR EVERY LIVE ENVIRONMENT

Here has been engineered to give you control of any and all live listening experiences: Suppress the jet engine on an airplane. Reduce a baby crying. Boost the bass at a club. Live mix a concert by adding reverb. Enhance your senses and personalize every listening experience.

HOW HERE WORKS

The technology used in Here is fundamentally different from any audio technology that has come before it. Here uses a variety of signal processing algorithms that target specific frequency ranges to modify sound as it enters your ears.

Each Here bud captures incoming sound waves, processes the audio, and then plays back the desired result with no perceivable latency (i.e. in under 30 microseconds). 

 

With 21 days to go, the Here campaign has raised $378,283, eclipsing the original $250,000 campaign goal!

You can still get in as an early bird for $199, the Here will retail for $249.

Estimated delivery date: December 2015

Phree - Make the world your paper

 

Phree™ is the world’s first unrestricted, high resolution, write-virtually-anywhere mobile input device.

We live in a world of screens. But writing or drawing on them isn’t always spontaneous and doesn’t always feel natural, especially if they’re put away somewhere.

Screens are useful, sure. We love our screens, too. But sometimes, they’re just too limiting.

Phree lets you write, draw, annotate, and express yourself in countless other ways. On virtually any surface.

Phree™ will easily connect to all your devices: phone, tablet, laptop, TV…anything with a Bluetooth connection.

Phree is compatible with software and apps like Office, OneNote, EverNote, Acrobat, Google Handwriting Keyboard, Viber and more. 

So you can instantly sketch or jot down ideas, notes, thoughts, email addresses and phone numbers...whatever crosses your mind!

With 16 days to go, the Phree has raised a crazy $730,929, dwarfing their $100,000 original goal.

The Phree is  still availablem starting at $168. All the early bird specials are gone!

Estimated delivery date: April 2016
