EmoSPARK AI Console: Companion Cube IRL
Her was an interesting movie, to say the least. It’s difficult to understand how someone could fall in love and develop a relationship with an operating system, but we might just see more of that happening with the release of EmoSPARK.

Wads is a Spitball Launcher and Pen in One
Spitballs are annoying, but they’re a part of life, especially in grade school. If you have a kid who’s being tormented by these nasty balls of paper and spit or know someone with a kid who’s in a spitty predicament, then you might want to look into Wads.

Tikker: The Wristwatch That Counts Down Your Life
We’re all living on borrowed time. Those on their deathbeds would kill to have just one more hour or one more minute or even just one more second to breathe the air and see the world before leaving it forever. 

The Altered States of America: A Map of American Sci-Fi History

The Altered States of America: A Map of American Sci-Fi History
American history is among the richest in the world. I’m not just talking about what went down in the real world, but also everything that transpired in the realm of science fiction, horror, and fantasy. In an attempt to map the most notable of these fictional events, Chop Shop has launched a Kickstarter project called the “Altered States of America.”

Zeepro Zim 3D Printer Starts at Just $599, Available with Dual Print Heads
As expected, 3D printing technology is getting more and more accessible. While there are numerous printers on the market in the $1000-$2000 price range, there are only a couple which dip significantly below that pricepoint. While I broke down and ordered a bargain-priced Buccaneer for myself – that project has already closed on Kickstarter.

Owlet Baby Bootie Lets You Monitor Your Baby’s Vitals from Your Smartphone

Invasion of the Zom-Babies
Tired of princess and puppy dog costumes? Why not dress up your baby in some scary threads this Halloween?

Rail Reach Gives Stand up Commuters a Hand

Rail Reach Gives Stand up Commuters a Hand
For a lot of people, commuting can be quite exhausting, especially if all the seats are taken. There’s nothing wrong with standing up, because there’s the rail for passengers to grab on to for added support… unless the rail itself is covered in slimy stuff (ew), is out of reach or just too high for comfort.

TripSaver Helps You Stay on Budget While Traveling
I love traveling. Who doesn’t? What I don’t love as much, though, is how I usually go over the budget that I had initially set for myself. Apparently, this is a pretty common problem that most of my travel buddies share.

There have been many attempts to recreate the design of the Hoverboards from Back to the Future II, but none of them have been functional. Now, there’s a project which just kicked off with hopes of creating an actual, working Hoverboard by the Summer of 2015 – the same time period that Marty visits in the movie.

JumpStartCity Crowdfunding Site Tries to One-up Kickstarter

JumpStartCity Crowdfunding Site Tries to One-up Kickstarter
I’m a fan of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing of products.
