Weather Point 2.0 - The World’s Smallest Weather Station

Weather Point is an individual keychain weather station. Measures temperature, humidity, UV, atmospheric pressure on your mobile device.

We at BiteMyApple absolutely adored the original Weather Point and are happy to support this updated version.

What Is Weather Point 2.0?

As we like to call it "your individual and personal weather station", Weather Point 2.0 is actually an innovation in weather monitoring and measuring.

Dimensionally small and convenient to carry around in your daily activities, it is functionally more than helpful due to the facts that works as thermometer, humidity meter, UV index & atmospheric pressure meter and it is compatible with your mobile devices . Supports iOS & Android .

At any moment , at any location , Weather Point 2.0 provides you with temperature , pressure, UV and humidity measurements.

Cute and elegant, stylish, fashionable, convenient and very necessary piece of your daily outfit to help you go throughout your day without rainy or any other weather surprises. 

Simply plug it in, read it and you are all set to go!


As of writing the Weatherpoint 2.0 has already raised $76,982 compared to the initial $25,000 goal!

Pre-orders can still be had for only $19 with 23 days to go.

Estimated delivery date: October 2015

Floating Record™ Vertical Turntable

High-Performance Vertical Turntable with Full-Range Stereo Speakers. Built in Chicago.


What Is The Floating Record?

The Floating Record is a high-performance turntable that plays your records vertically through built-in, dynamic, full-range stereo speakers (or via RCA line out). We reimagined turntable technology that uses audiophile-grade materials and components. The result is a visually and mechanically sound way to experience vinyl music.


Vinyls Take Up A Lot Of Space

Traditional record players take up a lot of space and require additional components such as pre-amps, amps, integrated receivers, speakers and all the necessary cables. However, the Floating Record’s integrated design allows it to beautifully fit into most environments with ease.

Full Range Stereo Speakers

The Floating Record comes with a dynamic, full-range audio system. We use two Tymphany 2” neodymium speakers driven by a 15w per channel digital amplifier. The speaker cavities incorporate tuned bottom porting to offer superior bass response. We achieved the best possible sound without compromising aesthetics or performance.

The Floating Record has raised a staggering $809,213 as opposed to the original $50,000 goal and there are still 27 days to go!

Most of the early bird specials are gone, but you can get yours (in walnut) for $349 - the Floating Record will retail for $449

Estimated delivery date: December 2015

Silk by Saffron - Smart LED Lighting - Bring Sunlight Inside

Silk by Saffron is a smart LED bulb that automatically adjusts its color temperature so you get light tailored to your circadian rhythm.

The Problem

Artificial light has consequences - mainly that it confuses your internal clock. From the lights at the office, to the lights at your home, all of these things affect your hormones and the functionality of your body.

The Solution

The Silk Light is a smart LED bulb that automatically adjusts its colour temperature throughout the day so that you get light tailored specifically to your biological internal clock!

The Silk Light features:

  • Quick & Easy Setup
  • Autonomy (no babysitting required)
  • Flexibility (the Silk app allows for scheduling and zoning)


With 37 days to go, the Silk has raised $25,831 out of their original $100,000 goal.

Early bird specials are available for $99 - this gets you 3 bulbs and a bridge.

Estimated delivery date: January 2016
