4 Kickstarter Projects You Should Back This Week - July 8th, 2015

It's Wednesday at BiteMyApple and you know what that means - we're giving you the latest, most exciting Kickstarter projects this week!

 

Light Pulse Electroluminescent Charge & Sync Cables

6 ft. Electroluminescent Visible Current Charge and Sync Cables. Illuminate your Mobile and Gaming Devices.

 

What are Light Pulse Charge and Sync Cables?

Light Pulse Cables are electroluminescent charge and sync cables that use patented visible current technology to show the rate at which your device is charging. See your device’s charge level from afar with the electroluminescent light flow: 

1. When your device is power hungry, the current will move quickly. 

2. When your device is almost fully charged, it will slow down. 

3. When your device is fully charged, the light will shut off.

 

Available In Different Colors

 

As of writing the Light Pulse has already raised $18,182 compared to the initial $15,000 goal with 53 days to go.

Early bird specials for Lightning cables are still available at $30.

Estimated delivery date: December 2015

olloclip Studio: an integrated Mobile Photography System

See it. Shoot it. Share it…

 

About The Project

When the olloclip first launched on Kickstarter four years ago, the concept of mobile photography was just starting to take shape and since then over a million lenses have shipped!

It's this evolution that prompted the creators to take the next step and develop a new case and line of accessories that not only provide a specific function, but whose design is systemic to the creative process itself.

Introducing olloclip Studio for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

The olloclip Studio system is the combination of an all-new, more protective case design that incorporates an integrated mounting solution (patent pending) and a series of mobile photography accessories.

Both the case and accessories are designed to intuitively work together the moment you pick them up.

Unlike many of today’s modular mobile grip systems, olloclip’s Studio components seamlessly work together so you can focus on capturing the opportunity in front of you and not on building a rig. 

 

Why Are They Coming Back To Kickstarter For Funding?

"When we set out to pursue our dream four years ago, the Kickstarter Community was with us every step of the way. You validated our vision, provided valuable feedback and collectively, you helped us offset the costs of bringing such a product to market. 

Today, we are looking to further expand our vision from a lens solution to a complete mobile photography system. olloclip Studio represents a significant production cost and being a small business, the opportunity for growth is only attainable through your generous support. This project alone represents over 7 new and complex tooling configurations that must be designed and built. 

More importantly, we can’t imagine partnering with anyone else other than Kickstarter to explore what is possible in mobile photography – you’re part of our DNA."

 

The olloclip Studio has already raised $74,243 out of their $100,000 goal, with 24 days to go.

Pre-orders start at $35!

Estimated delivery date: September 2015

Sphericam 2, the 4K 360º Video Camera for Virtual Reality

The perfect 360º camera for Oculus Rift. The first ever to offer GLOBAL SHUTTER capture at 60FPS and 4K spherical vision.

What Is The Sphericam 2?

Sphericam 2 is a spherical, 360º camera that allows you to capture absolutely everything around you in high resolution without any blind spots.

You can watch the resulting videos on a VR Headset (like Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard) or on your iPad, tablet, PC or mobile phone.

The Critical Missing Link in VR

    With the likes of Oculus Rift and Samsung outbidding each other to create the the best VR viewing platforms, there is a critical part of the puzzle still missing - how do you create stunning VR content in the first place?

    Most cinematic VR creation attempts so far have been, well, less real and more virtual.

    Think blind spots, uneven stitching and mismatched white balance from unsynchronised sensors.

    There just aren't many people who want to go through the months of training required to operate 6 sports cameras stuck together, and the tremendous amount of tricky post processing that is needed to make such footage watchable.

    Thankfully all that is a thing of the past. With Sphericam 2, we are VR ready.

    Sphericam 2 has been designed to deliver the specific resolution and frame rate of today's VR Headsets such as Oculus Rift and Gear VR: 4096x2048 pixels at 60 frames per second.

    The Sphericam 2 has already surpassed their original $150,000 goal, with $165,272 raised!

    Some early bird specials are still available at $1,399 with 22 days left to go.

    Estimated delivery date: December 2015
