Navigating the world of crowdfunding can be overwhelming, to put it lightly. Which projects are worth backing? Where’s the filter to weed out the hundreds of useless smart devices? To make the process less frustrating, we scour the various online crowdfunding platforms to put together a weekly roundup of our favorite campaigns for your viewing (and spending!) pleasure. Go ahead, free your disposable income:
ONDU III is a wooden pinhole camera that will help you slow things down, focus on only the features that are truly necessary during the photography process, and learn about the properties of light in a new way. To put things in perspective, ONDU III is sans lens, focus, mirror and batteries.
Only a couple of hours left to support The New Bauhaus, a documentary film about how László Moholy-Nagy brought the Bauhaus movement to Chicago. The film is already fully backed, but there’s no harm in pledging a little extra for the love of design.
Curious about the weighted blanket trend? Reviv is a good place to start. The simply-designed bamboo blanket comes in various weights, colors and sizes to fit your coziness needs. Sit back, relax and feel like you’re being hugged—all of the time.
Crave was the first company to crowdfund a vibrator, and we’re excited to see they’re back with a new campaign. The Pocket Vibe from Crave features three interchangeable silicone caps and is made from high quality metal, which provides a more intense vibration than typical plastic or silicone vibrator.
Wowstick is a 56-bit electric screwdriver designed to look and feel like a pen. The starter pack comes with 20 bits, and if you want to be even more overwhelmed with tool options, you can up your backer level.
Well, UNOBRUSH is certainly one of the more interesting campaigns we’ve seen. But does it really brush your teeth in 6 seconds? Who knows.
