Every week, we pick out some cool new projects we’ve spotted on Kickstarter.
Here’s what we think has got legs this week…
Dubbed “the world’s first self healing tent”, the Nano Cure Tent is sure to be the smart tech of the future when it comes to camping.
So what does a ‘self healing tent’ entail?
Well, it’s made from NCT — a lightweight, water resistant, ripstop nylon material that’s incredibly durable and tough. If it does managed to become punctured or bear small holes, it can be healed by simply rubbing your finger over the ‘wound’.
The heat from your finger activates the resealing and repairing capabilities of the tent, restoring it to full health!
But if you’re tempted to slash your tent apart with knives and scissors, we’d urge caution — the manufacturers are quick to note that the healing capability is only effective on small punctures and lacerations.
Not only is this 4-person tent self-healing, but it’s also easy to set up — within 3 minutes — and no problem to fit back into its original packaging when you’re traveling between camp sites.
They’re aiming to start shipping in December 2018.
If you’re sick of heavy, stinky bath towels that never seem to properly dry, you definitely need to check out what K-25 is doing.
Their towels are revolutionary in the home interiors sphere:
- Super fast drying
- Highly absorbent
- Naturally antibacterial
- Ultra soft and fluffy
- Available in extra large sizes
This is all due to their patent pending ‘secret sauce’ — a combination of sophisticated engineering and their dedication to 100% cotton materials.
Not only are these towels guaranteed to give you a better drying experience, but they’ll also help you save money on laundry costs, as well as generally helping the environment.
Unsurprisingly, their Kickstarter campaign has over quadrupled their earning goal with over two weeks to go.
Purporting to be the world’s first professional AR measuring device, the Arrim ONE has the potential to really shake up the design market.
All you need to do is attach the Arrim ONE to your smartphone — now it can measure dimensions of straight lines, curves, angles and circles, while also being used as a leveling and dividing tool.
Maximally precise and able to work in both Metric and Imperial units, it promises to keep adding functions during the development process and beyond by simply updating its software.
To maintain its accuracy — +/- 1.5 mm within a 20 meter range — the Arrim ONE using a virtual 3D coordinate system, phase-shift laser measurement, characteristic point tracking, AR and a patented algorithm.
The hardware itself is compact and subtle, weighing just 35 grams and can be used on smartphones with or without a protective case.
