Novelty items are often hard to come by, especially things that you don’t typically see in stores or online. But that is where unique, crowd-funded items come along. If you don’t know already, Kickstarter has a range of new-age things that are extremely functional to boot. Want a water bottle that washes by itself? Or even the world’s first standalone headphones? Kickstarter it is.
Rope in our Boxers to help you out with scoring these cool merch:
Want an everything-in-one wallet that you can take no matter where you go? The Dango P01 Pioneer Wallet is your new go-to. It’s basically a leather wallet that doubles up as a notebook and pen holder. Equipped with RFID blocking to keep your info secure, the wallet is handmade entirely in the USA from vegetable tanned Italian leather. If it looks small to you, rest assured that it can store up to 20 cards. Jot notes down with the pen and 24-page Dango Notebook whenever the need to arises—that’s three less loose items to carry separately!
Coming across a bra that fits you perfectly is almost impossible. But Evelyn & Bobbie is proving that statement wrong with their True Complexion— a bra that offers 360 degree support, virtually seamless comfort, and the truest colour to your skin tone. Using 3D intelligence and data research, the brand was able to develop its Complexion Palette, a range of colours made from skin tone scans from real women. Plus, its fabric provides four-way stretch sans the discomfort from constriction/binding. What this means to us ladies? You can now look forward to less tugging and no more irritation caused by ill-fitted bras.
Quartz is likely the first bottle ever that has a water purification system within the bottle itself. It uses UV-C LED light to eliminate 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from your water and bottle, allowing for you to drink clean H2O whenever. Reusable and rechargeable, Quartz is double insulated to keep your water cold for 24 hours, and hot for 12. Its self cleaning function activates on its own every 4 hours, and you only need to charge it once for it to last up to 2 months! Available in five chic colours, this is in the running to become your newest travel and everyday essential.
Apart from being the world’s first standalone smart wireless headphones, the Vinci 2.0 is pretty much the only thing need with you when you’re plugged in, listening to music. Whether choosing music, answering calls or checking your vital stats, this nifty tool will let you do just about everything without having to carry your phone with you. You can send messages directly from your headphones; stream music from Spotify, SoundCloud, Amazon Music, and more; or even ask the headphones to recommend a song for you (no kidding). Technology used within include bone conduction mic for voice recognition, natural language processing (“NLP”) algorithms to find out which songs suit you best, and more than 10 built-in sensors to analyse your fitness and health data. Imagine your favourite headphones equipped with Amazon’s Alexa—this is likely it.
Akita is revolutionizing the way we think about home security with its home stations. Using military-grade security protection, it scans your network for any unusual activity and immediately shuts it down, but not before notifying you that an attempt was made to invade your privacy. What’s cool about it is that Akita uses a combo of threat intelligence, behavioural analysis, and machine learning to protect your privacy. It doesn’t use Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) method, so you don’t have to worry about them accessing your data.
