The Legion Meter, crowdfunded on Kickstarter, is a project launched by PLX devices. The USB, plug-and-play gadget is designed to accelerate smartphone and tablet charging. The makers of the device claim that device charging can be improved by up to 92 percent, and the Legion Meter also includes a built-in multimeter for displaying voltage, current, power and milliwatt hours on an integrated OLED display. In a recent update, PLX Devices said the Legion Meter will support accelerated charging and data pass through in one unit, and users will be able to choose between accelerated charging with no data pass through, and data pass through without charge acceleration.
The first devices are due to ship out in October 2014.

The Micro, crowdfunded on Kickstarter by M3D, is a project which captured the imagination of 3D printing enthusiasts looking for an affordable option directed at the consumer market.
The Micro 3D printer, due to retail at $349 at launch, is a cube which measures in at 7.3" per side, and weights roughly 1kg. Usable with a Windows, Mac or Linux-based system and USB compatible, the mini 3D printer supports materials including nylon, ABS and PLA, as well as standard filament rolls. Custom software is used with the 3D printer to take away the complexity of using design blueprints.
At the end of roughly a day, the crowdfunding campaign had raised over a million dollars.
