This week we're looking at 4 projects that are all about technology on the go.
Whether you're on the move constantly, travelling or, if you just want to have flexibility with your mobility, then you'll like these projects.
We at BiteMyApple love innovation and creativity in all forms and these projects certainly fit the bill.
Tech is going Bananas! Slip'n Selfie, Dog-o-Phone, Flappy Jello. Invent on the GO!
In the picture above you'll find Makey Makey GO connecting a banana to laptop. While the look and feel is as simple as peeling a banana, the intricate sensors and circuitry were engineered by PhDs from MIT.
Makey Makey GO is the World’s First Invention Kit that goes with you everywhere.
Makey Makey GO gives today’s tinkerers, dreamers, and makers mobility—allowing them to invent anytime, anywhere.
That’s up to you! The main thing is that Makey Makey GO turns the world into a giant construction kit—because world-changing ideas don’t always happen in a lab or at school. Sometimes they happen in the shower, on the playground, flying a kite, or sitting under an apple tree.
As of writing the Makey Makey GO has raised a massive $155,545 compared to the initial $10,000 goal!
Pre-orders can still be had for only $19. Back this project today and start creating!
Estimated delivery date: November 2015
Invest in a faster, safer, and longer-lasting product. LUMOPACK will change your expectations of charging!
Portable electronics (i.e. smartphones) have gotten exponentially better with each passing year. Successive generations feature better CPUs, cameras, screens, and cellular signals, which all place an increasing strain on the battery.
The development of batteries has not kept pace with our portable electronics. This led to an increased demand for battery packs. However there is a problem within the battery market.
Too often, battery packs differentiate themselves through their PACK (form, style, and gimmicks), instead of the actual BATTERY. Lyte has focused on what matters most—the science of the battery cell.
Ever wonder why your old laptop or phone dies soon after it’s charged up to 100%? It’s because you’ve used up your cycle life.
The standard batteries today last about 300 cycles, with most leaders in the industry maxing out at 500 cycles. However, this number is only at its most ideal conditions, which is usually never the case.
In comparison, even with faster charging, the LumoPack can sustain 1000 charge cycles, that’s 2-3 times the industry standard today!
The LUMOPACK has raised $91,399 as opposed to the original $50,000 goal and they've got an extended goal at $100k!
You've got 6 hours to back this project! (You can still get in as an early-ish bird for $79.)
Estimated delivery date: October 2015
The MOVEMENT delivers the same tracking functions as the industry leaders at a fraction of the cost.
1. A lightweight and comfortable bangle that is simple yet elegant in form and function.
2. An incredibly power efficient piece of hardware with a standard seven-day use time.
3. A connected app that provides insights and action-oriented data.
It’s always great to know what you have been doing, and it’s even better to know how you can make small tweaks everyday to make big improvements in your habits and health.
The third generation LYTICS app for THE MOVEMENT not only provides the normal data points, but also provides data visualization that helps you understand how to stay on track to hit your targets.
With 14 days to go, the MOVEMENT has raised $23,808 compared to their original $12,000 goal.
You can still get in for as low as $18 (plus shipping) and they've recently added a stretch goal at $45K!
Estimated delivery date: August 2015
It's not just a bag, it's not just a strap, It's AGUA! A super-protective, quick-draw, fully-adjustable revolutionary camera carrier.
1. Drawing a camera from most rain-proof bags is slow and awkward while AGUA enable to quick-draw so fast you will never miss a shot!
2. The AGUA provides excellent protection for the camera against severe weather conditions, according to the international IPX3 standard.
3. Say goodbye to your old camera strap… One of the AGUA's unique features is the fact that the camera is attached to the bag with quick-release buckles, including a failsafe connection. This method eliminates the need for the original camera strap because the AGUA's strap is used to carry the camera itself.
The AGUA provides excellent double-layer protection against water and impact thanks to an outer layer of waterproof tarpaulin in matte black.
Additionally, a padded inner layer of Neoprene and Lycra offers smart design that allows carrying it in many ways while keeping your gear secured and ready to shoot.
With 6 days to go, the AGUA has raised an astonishing $133,131 compared to their original $20,000 goal.
You can back the project for $55 or $60 (depending on the size desired) - all the early bird specials are gone.
Estimated delivery date: November 2015
