Zrro (pronounced “zero”) is an Android-based games console currently looking for crowdfunding support. It offers something a little different from the competition, with a touchpad controller that mimics touchscreen functionality on the big screen, allowing users to interact with both games and apps in a natural, intuitive way.  Read More

A 3D CNC router (computer controlled cutting machine) assembled from UberBlox, which is a ...

As cool and wonderful as Lego is, those plastic bricks can be tricky to handle if you want to step up from mere constructive play into serious custom-built prototyping. UberBlox hopes to fill that gap. It's a metal construction set and prototyping system with a single-connector locking mechanism and a variety of control boxes for accommodating whatever computer connection or automation needs a project might have.  Read More

The Fly12 is both a 1080p/30fps HD camera and a 400-lumen headlight for bicycles

Having a rear-facing video camera on your bike could certainly prove handy if you needed to provide legal proof that a motorist had done you wrong. Nobody wants to mount and use a GoPro on every ride, though, which is why Australian startup Cycliq developed the Fly6 – it's a tail light with a built-in mini HD camera. However, what if you need a visual record of what happened on the road in front of you? Well, you'd need the new Fly12, which is a combination headlight and camera.  Read More

The Voltera V-One is designed to speed up and simplify the process of electronic circuit b...

In designing and prototyping electronic circuit boards there is no quick or simple way to produce results. Many hours of design and development need to be expended on prototype layouts along with masking, etching, and populating those boards with components. Even after all of this, just one simple layout mistake can ruin all of your work and you have to go through the entire process again. The Voltera V-One aims to change all of that with the promise of a one button, conductive ink printing system solely designed to reduce the effort in rapid, small run hardware prototyping.  Read More

Two Snolo Scions, ready to hit the slopes

Back in 2012, we first heard about the Stealth-X carbon fiber sled. Designed by New Zealand-based company Snolo, it was designed to be fast, light and maneuverable. Unfortunately for most of us, it also cost US$2,999. Now, however, Snolo is ready to begin production on a much more affordable plastic version of the sled, known as the Scion.  Read More

The Kuissential EvenGrind coffee grinder targets the budget end of the market

Grind-size and consistency is crucial when grinding coffee beans. Kuissential's EvenGrind promises to provide a selectable and consistent grind-size for its users. It does so by using a removable cage to stabilize its burr.  Read More

Acumulus9 aims to improve upon the existing lifelogging camera experience by not taking photos at predetermined intervals, but having its QindredCam select when and where to take a snap. It offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and incorporates cloud storage to make it easy for users to view and share content.  Read More

Researchers have identified factors that can help make or break a science crowdfunding eff...

How do you boost the chances of crowdfunding success for science projects? As it turns out success may not be down solely to the vagaries of its viral nature or the "sexiness" of the project. According to researchers at the University of Santa Barbara, who studied crowdfunding of science projects, more workaday things like consistent communication and simple enthusiasm are more important factors.  Read More

For coffee enthusiasts, preparing a brew can be as important as what beans are being used. Gizmag has covered lots of coffee makers over the years, but how the beans are ground also makes a difference. The Handground coffee grinder promises a consistent and precision grind for a better flavor.  Read More

The Main Drain, ready for action

Perhaps you're one of those guys who dreams of having a "man cave" with its own private urinal. The things cost hundreds of dollars, however, plus they take up a lot of space in the bathroom. That's why Daniel Garvin created the Main Drain, a low-cost urinal that attaches to the side of an existing toilet.  Read More
