TrackR bravo

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.

KOR-FX gaming vest

The KOR-FX is a garment designed to immerse you even further into a video game -- by allowing you to feel the action, whether it be gunfire or melee battles.

The adjustable and lightweight vest connects wirelessly to your PC or console via a dongle, with buttons on the chest for you to adjust output based on your own preferences. For example, explosions could reverberate through your ribs, while gunfire on your left prompts vibration on your left shoulder. The creator claims that audio can be transformed into these effects through special algorithms with process and convert sounds into specific vibrations.

At the time of writing, this project has raised $183,449 based on a target of $75,000.

JIBO the family robot

The design reminds me of Pixar's robots, but Jibo is more than a desk lamp or an alarm clock. The "world's first family robot" is touted as a sociable companion which can connect wirelessly to the Web, handle video calling, take photos, organize your itinerary for the day and remind you to complete certain tasks. The creators say Jibo is a responsive robot and an "attentive companion" for both seniors and kids.

At the time of writing, this project has raised $1,151,509 based on a target of $100,000.

ICLOAK Stik

Following the NSA scandal, startups and campaigns have begun rapidly developing 'spy-free' solutions to try and thwart government surveillance.

The iCloak Stik is one such product that has come out of the woodwork -- a plug-and-play device which is designed to make privacy more accessible to the general public. The device makes the process of connecting to Tor far easier for the average computer user, and route their browsing through Tor or I2P anonymizing networks so tracking is more difficult.

In addition, if you want to watch media or access websites which are blocked in particular countries, the device will allow you to select a preferred country they wish to appear to be coming from.

At the time of writing, this project has raised $98,036 based on a target of $75,000.
