10 inspiring Kickstarter projects

10 inspiring Kickstarter projects
Last week, we started exploring Kickstarter - a hub for making brilliant ideas come into life. There are some projects that are awe-inspiring - bringing a 3D printer into our daily lives (just imagine the possibilities), there are those indie art projects that promise to change the world and have finally found the right democratic place to find funding... and there's technology. 

We, of course, are fascinated by what relates to phones, tablets and how this little mobile phone that you have in your pocket can be augmented to become so much more than just a device you talk on and check your email.

There's a world of possibilities - you can make it more functional and have it act as a scanner, you can use it as a remote for your DSLR and take awesome timelapses, heck you can even shoot full-featured movies on it. All of this inspiration comes from Kickstarter projects like the 10 we picked for you this week. Which one do you find the most inspiring? Do you have something you think we should look at? Don't hesitate to hit us with a comment about the most inspiring tech projects you've seen, and we'll make sure to mention them in the future.

Thats not true. If you would have actually watched the videos last week, you would have seen that although the majority of these are for apple products like the ones last week, they are different ideas. I personally think the best one last week was the thing that rolls up your headphone cables and usb cables.

A lot of these (cases for the iphones) are hardly inspiring... they've been grossly overdone, aren't anything new, and don't apply to most of the smartphone-buying public

Although i consider all of these super trendy and not really that functional, silly accessories like this is what makes non-techy people want apple devices. Because they know that they will have a cool ecosystem around their non-techy devices, people tend to feel more like they are part of a movement.

It annoys me when an accessory made for any kind of a smartphone or a tablet is advertised as an accessory for an iphone or an ipod, especially if it is advertised by a professional journalist (Victor H) who is supposed to be unbiased.

It's not like they're iPhonearena. They just grabbed the most interesting and inspiring projects. What's your problem, really? If you guys can't stand the fact that they have articles about apple, then ignore them, you're just wasting your time by looking at them, and commenting them if you don't like the articles.

In Brazil we have a term for how Phonearena usually handles anything Apple-related... It's Puxa-saco!!!
