A successful crowdfunding campaign has introduced the TrackR bravo to the masses. The slim, coin-sized device clips or sticks onto objects and makes them trackable via the creator's GPS-enabled iOS or Android app. If you're looking for your keys or your dog has run off on a walk, you can use the app or a companion TrackR keychain to sound an alert. As long as the object is within 100 feet, you'll be given a notification of where the object was last seen.
The device itself is 3.5mm thick, has a 34mm diameter, is cased in aluminium and comes with a one-year replaceable battery.
At the time of writing, this project has raised $751,964 based on a target of $20,000.
Electric Objects: A computer made for art
The Internet is a wonderful place to find new, fresh and stunning art -- but most of this is viewed only on your computer screen.
One company, Electric Objects, wants to change that. The firm have launched a Kickstarter campaign for the E01 -- a "computer made for art." The device is a custom-framed 1920 x 1080 IPS LCD panel display, and sports a dual-core tablet processor which powers what is going on on the screen. You select digital art you want portrayed from your computer or mobile device, and the E01 is able to support both animations and static imagery.
At the time of writing, this project has raised $546,190 based on a target of $25,000.
