Wildcard is A Slim Multitool With A Detachable Blade


Multitools on Kickstarter are just like wallets on Kickstarter: there are way too many! But every now and then one comes around that adds a little innovative twist and stands out. The Wildcard is yet another multitool stamped out of solid stainless steel, except this one features a fold-out serrated edge blade. Better yet, the blade is detachable so if you forget you’re carrying it at the airport, you can just surrender the blade and order a replacement, instead of having to ditch the whole thing. It’s also got a screwdriver, a prybar, and a bottle opener. The whole thing measures just 2mm thick and is credit card sized, so it’ll fit in your wallet easily. It’s a smart design, and definitely worth the $25 pledge necessary to secure one.

The Luminoodle Is A Versatile, Super Bright LED Light Strip


LED tech has advanced quite a bit in recent years as they’ve gotten brighter and started consuming even less energy. The Luminoodle has a questionable name, but is in fact a pretty useful product.

Luminoodle™ is a 5-foot strand of ultra-bright, waterproof, and USB-powered LEDs designed with various, easy-to-use mounting solutions included in the bag. At 10-20 times brighter than your average Christmas lights, it’s the most adaptable, intuitive, and portable string lighting system ever created. It’s the world’s first completely waterproof, flexible, ultra-bright ambient lighting solution that can be hung, strung, hooked, stuck to or wrapped around basically anything.

Mounting options include using one of the 3 (included) “Noodle ties”, or the magnets integrated at either end of the strand. For power, you can hook it up to your external battery pack if you own one, or to the one provided at the $39 price level. That should be enough for 6 hours of continuous use. It’s $19 if you already have your battery.

Chameleon Pen Blends Colors On The Fly, Creates Awesome Gradients


Drawing with an actual pen and ink is a thing that people still do, no matter how much digital drawing tablets have evolved. The Chameleon Pen is an interesting new type of drawing tool that allows you to produce multiple color tones, stunning gradations, highlights, shading & seamless blends, all with one pen. It does this by a process they call “fusing”, during which the nib of your pen enters into contact with the mixing nib of another flask containing coloured toning medium; the longer these two stay in contact, the stronger the gradient will be. The toning medium basically flows into your pen when the nibs touch, mixes in the nib, and then flows back out smoothly as you draw. It’s rather complicated to explain properly, but watch the video below and you’ll see the beauty.

Prices start at $5 for one random colored pen, and $25 for 5 skin or gray toned Chameleon Pens.

Ako Dice Reimagine A Centuries Old Design


Dice have looked just about the same for a very long time. But that’s no reason to keep it that way. Kacha, an architect, decided to redesign the iconic gaming prop into the Ako Dice, pictured above. The number of each face is represented by a line, giving the piece a Tron-like feel and a techno-futuristic aesthetic. He brought his idea to Kickstarter, where he successfully convinced 6,545 backers to part with their money. They might be getting their Ako dice soon, but if you want your you’ll have to sign up on his website and wait for his store to go online. We’re not sure what the price is, but the anodized aluminum dice could sure take their place in our next Monopoly marathon.

Spill-proof Barware For Clumsy Drinkers


If you haven’t tipped over your beer glass after a night of drinking, you just hadn’t been drinking enough. It happens to the best of us, but there’s no reason we should have to spend so much time buying new glasses when a better option exists. The Mighty Mug Barware set features a special bottom the company calls “Smartgrip Technology”, which makes it impossible to tip over.

Not to be confused with a magnet or suction cup, the Smartgrip at the bottom of the cup creates a vacuum that locks the mug onto the surface – effectively preventing it from being knocked over. The vacuum is released instantly when the mug is lifted straight up (requiring no extra effort).

The glasses are made from BPA-free Tritan plastic, which means they’re nearly indestructible, and go in the dishwasher with no issue. There is a Wine Stem Glass, a Beer Pilsner, a Pint Glass, and a Double Old Fashioned, with prices starting at $30 for 2 on their fully-funded Kickstarter campaign.

You Can Now Get A Close Shave With LASERS


The game of shaving hasn’t changed much in a few thousand years. But in the technological age, isn’t it about time we took a look at that? The Skarp Laser Razor uses a laser to shave. That’s right, a laser! The device itself looks somewhat like a regular razor, but it packs a specially calibrated laser that is able to instantly cut through hair.

Wavelengths of light had already been discovered that could cut through dark hair, but finding a way to cut light hair was proving incredibly difficult.

After years of research & development, the makers discovered a chromophore in the hair that would be cut when hit with a particular light wavelength.

Chromophores are particles that absorb certain wavelengths (colors) of light.

This chromophore they identified is shared by every human, regardless of age, gender or race.

The Skarp Laser Razor promises a close shave, with no scratches, no razor burn, no need for water or shaving cream. You’ll be able to shave at the same speed you always do, and you can even do it in the shower. One AAA battery lasts about one year, and the laser itself has a life of 50,000 hours. It’s low power so it doesn’t present a danger for your eyes and no, it won’t create a burnt smell as it does its thing.

To get your own, you’ll have to pledge $189 and wait until March 2016 for delivery.

OneLid Is A Lid For All Your Pots


Usually when you get a pot, you have to keep track of its lid forever because no other one will fit. And admit it: you’ve used a large plate instead of the lid more than once because you couldn’t find it, haven’t you? With OneLid, you’ll just have to keep track of one, for any pots up to 22cm (8.6 in.) in diameter. It fits any pot because the underside is convex and is made of silicone with a Nylon core. It’ll sit and partially seal any sized pot and will redirect boiling water back into the mix. Special grooves allow for just the right amount of steam to escape and prevent a boil-over, while they also do double-duty as a strainer. The silicone construction means you won’t be hearing any metal-on-metal clangs. The best part is you’ll only have to pledge $30 to secure your own, with shipping in February 2016.

Infento Rides Provides Kids With Transformable Transportation To Assemble As They Grow


You buy your kid a tricycle, only to realize a couple years later that he’s outgrown the thing and now needs a small bike. Fast forward a couple more years, and the same thing happens again. It’s normal, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Infento Rides offers a completely different approach to this reality: completely reconfigurable and transformable rides that your kids can assemble themselves as they outgrow their current model. Think of it like a Meccano set that your offspring, ages 0-13, gets to ride. “With just a hex key and a couple of hours, an adult and child can make a sledge, a recumbent bike, a trike with a cargo box, and more.” Unlike other similar offerings, Infento provides your child with a huge assortment of builds ranging in assemblage complexity from a few minutes up to six hours. It’s a great activity to do with your kid, and it’ll teach him valuable skills in the process. Prices start at $299, and go up to $599 for the Master Creator Kit, with which you can make up to 11 different rides; this works out to around $55 per ride, so as expensive as it is, you’re still getting plenty of value.
