It's Wednesday at BiteMyApple and you know what that means - we're giving you the latest, most exciting Kickstarter projects this week!
This is nipi. It's more than a cooler. nipi is a charging hub. It's a security deposit box. It's a sleek accessory.
It's more than a cooler. nipi is a charging hub. It's a security deposit box. It's a sleek accessory. It's an all terrain vehicle and, with ice retention technology which keeps ice frozen for six whole days, its the ultimate way to have even more astonishing adventures.
Developed by a group of outdoor enthusiasts after conventional coolers failed to live up to their off-the-grid expectations, nipi is a seriously innovative cooler, designed to make getting away from it all more comfortable, more convenient and more chic. Sporting a sleek, minimalistic design, nipi walks (or rolls along) that often-tricky line between style and substance.
Beautiful and epically functional, the cooler looks good and offers an extraordinary range of functions, even for adventurers seizing the moment in the middle of nowhere...
Sand, mud, gravel, stones – where you lead, nipi follows, with specially engineered wheels that can take whatever your adventure throws their way.
The cooler's oversized wheels make light work of all terrains, while its comfortable, telescopic handle and lightweight design make this high performance cooler impressively portable. Beach, BBQ, festival, the races – nipi is the ultimate companion for every expedition.
With a wealth of “21st century survival” features, (including an illuminated, lockable storage are that protects your valuables) you could almost forget that, at its heart, nipi is an exceptional cooler.
Utilising cutting-edge ice retention technology, nipi's LED lit, 50 quart cool storage area preserves ice for six days, thanks to a double insulated lid and super thick walls. This ultra cool technology is so smart it doesn't require a charge to remain ice cold, whatever the weather.
As of writing the Nipi has begun its campaign with $12,489 raised out of initial $60,000 goal. There are still 41 days to go, so get moving!
The super early bird specials are gone but you can get in for $195.
Estimated delivery date: March 2016
The Helix is the first wearable with headphones on your wrist. In a sleek form, Helix ensures that fashion and tech are always at hand.
Fashion and functionality are the principles on which the Helix was created. Helix solves the problem of dealing with tangled and easy to lose headphones. What do you do with your headphones when they aren’t plugged in?
Instead of keeping them in your pocket or purse, access them in a fashion-forward cuff for easy convenience. It can take minutes to unravel earbuds. With Helix, you’ll plug in your headphones in just seconds.
Helix was designed for people who are always on and always in style. We want to create something unique for music-lovers, tech users, and smartphone mavens.
The goal is to deliver an incredible sound experience in a wearable that’s on the cutting edge of modern fashion trends and to make carrying headphones convenient and fashionable. The discreet, miniature compartment inside Helix accomplishes just that.
Amidst the wearables market, which is overflowing with fitness trackers, biomarkers, andsmart watches, there has never existed a complementary accessory allowing you to effortlessly keep your headphones with you at all times—until Helix.
A headset is something you want with you wherever you go. Most of us just throw headphones into something we carry with us and later spend hours untangling them. Helix is an elegant solution to this problem. Instant connection to music, podcasts, or phone calls becomes a reality.
We’re all “always on” in this digital age. According to a PR Newswire study, on average we use headphones for four hours a day. The majority of those surveyed had 3 or more pairs of headphones with 48% using them every day.
Constantly taking the extra time to deal with earphones is an unnecessary waste. Traditional wired earphones can be hard to carry and untangle. Say goodbye to inconvenience and stay connected. Effortlessly store your headphones with Helix.
The Helix has almost met its funding goal of $100,000 - they're at $86,099 with 50 days to go. We see this one being funded :)
You can still get in with us early birds for $99.
Estimated delivery date: December 2015
WATCHme is a charging stand that will turn your smartwatch into a cute little monster.
The WATCHme (Watchus cyclopus) is a newfound species, a (h)armless cyclops monster that was endemic to Vivien Muller’s office, east of France in the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia.
WATCHme has been selectively bred for months for various behaviors, cord management capabilities, and physical attributes.
It has no external ears and has very poor eyesight, however, it can be greatly improved by peculiar spectacles called « SmartWatch ».
The domestic WATCHme performs many roles for people, such as decorating a bedside, companionship, and charging a wearable technology.
A farmed WATCHme will be released at the end of year if a large adoption campaign succeeds.
As you can tell, this is a pretty straightforward project.
The WATCHme has 21 days to go and so far, they've achieved €9,218 out of their €20,000 goal.
You can get the WATCHme for as little as €19!
Estimated delivery date: December 2015
The world's first attachment that captures genuine 3D photographs
The first accessory of its kind, Bevel turns your ordinary smartphone or tablet into an amazing 3D camera.
Because we say so much with pictures. We use photographs to make people laugh, to tell stories, to express our emotions, and to preserve our most cherished memories.
When it comes to communicating visually, photos are great and video is even better. But the problem is we don’t live in a flat, two-dimensional world. It’s not our native dimension. When we communicate with ordinary photographs, we’re never really telling the whole story because the fact is, a photograph just isn’t the whole picture. But together, we can change that.
3D photography is possible, and we want to make it happen right now. We just need your help, to be the first to start creating and sharing amazing 3D photographs.
Bevel is the world’s first attachment capable of capturing real 3D photographs on any smartphone or tablet. Other 3D attachments create the illusion of 3D by enhancing the depth of an image, but fail to capture a file that you can actually use.
You can even use Bevel for 3D printing. That's why we call it Genuine 3D™ photography.
Bevel uses an eye safe laser light, and the existing camera on your Android or IOS device, to capture photographs in a whole new dimension.
Simply plug it in, and pan the person, place or thing you want to capture. Bevel creates beautiful 3D photographs that you can use in amazing ways.
With the Bevel app you can do everything you do with ordinary photos. Post your 3D pictures on facebook, instagram, tumblr, twitter or any social network.
Use the Bevel app to share directly to friends or upload and share them online with a link. Save them and even use them for animation, video game design and 3D printing.
With 28 days left to go, the Bevel has just about hit the halfway mark of their funding goal ($200,000) with $87,924 raised.
The original early bird specials are gone but you can get yours for $49!
