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


Scriba - a new stylus designed for comfort and control

A stylus that puts creative control back in your hands. With a flexible body and dynamic squeeze motion it responds to your every touch

What Is Scriba?

Scriba is a new stylus designed around the natural movements of your hand. With a flexible body and dynamic squeeze motion.

Scriba responds to your every touch, empowering you with the freedom to express your creative self.

Scriba's natural user interface provides greater control over your entire creative process. 

What sets Scriba apart is a seemingly simple idea for a new type of stylus.

The stylus should be designed around the user, rather than merely adapting a historic form that evolved to contain pencil lead or ink. 

Scriba has been sculpted around the hand.  The unique form has been designed for intuitive use, complimenting the hand’s natural movement and grip.

What Sets The Scriba Apart

A new means of interaction 

With a distinctive and unique form, Scriba has been crafted to the natural grooves of the hand. We studied the grips and hand movements and developed a new ergonomic shape that feels comfortable and intuitive.

Greater Control

Whether it’s conveying emotion with a flourish, or highlighting form with contour lines, controlling line weight is critical for good design. Scriba enables you to adjust line weight instantly, fluidly, and accurately.


Scriba can also detect if you are drawing lines of consistent weight and with Smart-Lock, automatically fixes the line-weight for you.  With a full depress, Scriba resumes the free-flowing drawing mode.

Interact with ease

Capture, develop and communicate ideas anytime, anywhere. With one squeeze, Scriba comes to life, allowing you to rapidly capture ideas. 

Six Months Battery Life

Scriba has the longest battery power of any stylus. Featuring an unprecedented 35 days of continuous use or 6 months on stand-by, Scriba rarely requires to be recharged.

Robust yet beautiful

With a seamless and sleek body, Scriba’s ultra-compact design is both light and durable. Crafted from a single mould of high quality polymer, Scriba has been designed to be light and durable. 

Scriba is built to reduce hand fatigue and improve grip. Its silicone tactile areas make Scriba the perfect tool for both rapid sketching and prolonged design.


The best possible canvas 

The brush is only part of the painting. We have designed Scriba.Draw - a dedicated app specifically built to optimise Scriba’s utility and range of control in a minimal drawing interface that lets you focus on your creativity without distraction.


Scriba is built on an open platform. We have created an SDK to allow developers to integrate Scriba into a range of fantastic apps that will be available when your Scriba is delivered later this year.. In time this will expand the possibilities of this truly multi-functional input device.



As of writing the Scriba has raised €7,410 out of initial €65,000 goal with 29 days to go.

Early bird specials are still available for  €65!

Estimated delivery date: December 2015



Solar Paper, the world's thinnest and lightest solar charger

World's first solar charger that can be placed inside your note or planner. It is a paper thin and ultra light weight solar charger


About The Project

Solar Paper is the world’s smallest 2,5W, 5W, 7.5W, 10W solar chargers. When it is sunny it can charge an iPhone 6 in about 2.5 hours. It has the similar charging speed as a wall charger.

With the world's top technology present inside, the result is highly efficient solar panels. It means that it can generate more energy than any other solar panels that are the same size.


Which Version Of The Solar Paper Should I Choose?

With different sizes available, you want to make sure you select the Solar Paper option that best suits your needs.

First, check the output of devices’ wall charger. If it is 5W (5V,1A. iPhone 3,4,5,6, Galaxy S1,2,3, note1 and etc.) and the place you live

always has strong intensity of sun light, 5W Solar Paper will be good enough to charge your smart phones at the same charging speed

as a wall charger.

But if you live in a place with weak sun light and lots of fog, then I would recommend 7.5W, which will charge devices well even on a

cloudy day. 10W is even better, but it also costs more. So for 5W devices, 5W or 7.5W Solar Paper is ideal. 




The Solar Paper project has crushed expectations, with $252,076 raised so far! The original goal was $50,00, and there are still 36 days to go.

You can still sneak in at the special $69 price, the Solar Paper will retail for $120.

Estimated delivery date: September 2015

Lumenati CS1: The World's First Cinematic Smartcase

The Lumenati CS1 pairs with your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s to create a classic film camera.

What Is The Lumenati CS1?

Cinematographers simply pop their device into the Lumenati CS1 just as grandpa would load an 8mm film cartridge. The lightweight, portable unit allows anyone to frame andfilm a steady, stable shot with the pull of an intuitive trigger.

A cold shoe allows filmmakers to attach lights, microphones and extra handles for sport shooting. The real-time viewfinder allows WYSIWYG capabilities even in bright light, a feature that is elusive to modern mobile devices. Lenses can be swapped to shoot in wide angle, fisheye and telephoto. 


The Lumenati CS1 is currently compatible with the iPhone 6 model. However, backers will have the option of being delivered either the iPhone 6 model or the iPhone 6s model (releases October).

Image Quality

The iPhone is already an incredible camera, but the ergonomics were never designed for film making. That's where we come in. The CS1 enhances the iPhone camera by creating the ability to attach lenses for numerous different shots. Additionally, the CS1 enables the addition of filters, handles, microphones, and lights, which greatly enhance the overall quality of the filming experience. Place it onto a tripod for completely steady and beautiful video.

  • Auto & Manual Focus 
  • f/ 2.2 aperture  
  • Five-element lens 
  • Backside illumination sensor 
  • Sapphire crystal lens cover 
  • Auto image stabilization 
  • Exposure control 
  • Hybrid IR filter

The CS1 still has a bit to go in order to achieve funding, they're at $53,0725 compared to $75,000 goal with 28 days to go.

The early bird specials are gone, but you can get in at the 'indie' level for $199 (retail will be $249).

Estimated delivery date: February 2016
