Kickstarter: Muku Shuttr – Remote iPhone Shutter Control

Shuttr1

Muku Shuttr – World’s Slimmest Remote Camera Control for iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S4/S3, Notes 2, LG Nexus 4. No app needed!

It works both on iOS and Samsung S4, S3, Notes 2, 10.1, LG Nexus 4 and many other Android 4.1+ devices with bluetooth 3.0+. It works WITHOUT downloading or installing 3rd party camera app!*

At 6 mm thickness, it is the world’s thinnest remote shutter release ever invented! So small that you can carry it as a keychain so that you capture every precious moments in your daily life.

I take a lot of pictures of my daughter with my iPhone for my Sammo Project page and a remote control shutter will come in very handy.

Backed in an instant and can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Kickstarter: Gift Couture Steak Wrapping Paper

Meat1

Steak Wrapping Paper A great gift wrapping idea for all of your veggie/vegan friends as well as your meat eating friends.

This meat loving wrap is a versatile design that can be combined with other elements–such as butcher paper and meat trays, for a highly unique gifting experience!

A great idea and a decent starting backer pledge level of $15 for a set of wrap. I’m backing this one.

Kickstarter: Something Different

Something1

Something Different is a card game that started out with a simple idea: a game where the rules changed as you played. What it evolved into is a fantastic party game where players get to know each other and engage in hilarious challenges. Things can change at a moments notice in Something Different, and it’s sure to keep you on your toes the whole time.

If you break a rule at any time you draw a card. Sounds simple enough, but it gets better. The basic rules tell you what color cards you can play or what suit they need to be, but other cards may restrict what you can do physically, such as making you keep one hand on the table, or making you talk like a pirate.

The other notable mechanics in the game include personal trivia, duels, and mini events called ‘switch-a-roos.’ When trivia rules are in play, you get to test another player’s knowledge of you. If they answer a question wrong they draw a card, but at least they learned something about you! Duels are just as they sound; thumb wars, staring contests and more, but while you duel someone play continues. The winner of a duel brags, the loser draws more cards. Switch-a-roos change the playing field, causing people to swap hands, trade seats, or reverse the order of play.

So it sounds like it is a bit like Fluxx by Looney Labs with some dueling, trivia, and uno mixed in. I love all of those elements, so I am in for a couple decks.

Kickstarter: Dash 2.0 Wallet

Dash2

A better, leather quickdraw wallet for minimalists. Carry the things you need, and access them easily. Dash 2.0 features 3 compartments. 2 for cards; a quickdraw slot, and a second compartment for carrying the rest of your cards and IDs.

Dash 2.0 Wallets are made of a newer, more durable elastic fabric.

I really liked the idea behind the first dash wallet and I am getting behind the Dash 2.0 Wallet by backing the project this time around. The Dash wallet is simple, clean, and minimalistic providing basic storage for everything you really need in a wallet.

Kickstarter: Pixel Press

Pixel2

Pixel Press is a mobile app that lets you draw your own video game (no code required!) and share it with others.

I like to try to code, but I am not very good at it so Pixel press is perfect for me. If you can draw on graph paper you can create a game with Pixel Press.

It is great for a classroom setting, fun with the family, or just to play around with your own level design. If you loved games like Metroid and Mario platformers then Pixel Press is your easy-peasy anyone can do it method for making and sharing your own versions of those kind of games.
