As an avid bike rider, I love to have a pair of Bluetooth in-ear headphones with me while I ride. Now that many wireless headphones (BT 4.0+) can connect to Apple Watch during workouts, it’s even handier than ever. One of the biggest worries about using in-ear headphones is that it’s difficult to hear noise around you when the music is cranked up. During outdoor physical activities, like biking down a country road for example, it can be difficult to hear oncoming traffic that may pose a risk to your safety.

That’s where AfterShokz: Trekz come in. This new Indiegogo campaign has developed a set of bone conducting in-ear headphones that keep your ear canals open but the music pumping. This project caught our eye, having already raised over 200% of its funding goal in just 24 hours.

The new Fotokite Phi, “a camera on a leash”, might just be the easiest drone to fly that we have ever seen.

With GoPro compatibility and gesture controls, this model stands out as a unique option for beginner pilots. It has only been a few hours since the project launched on Indiegogo, but the response has been very positive.

Much like other smart home products looking to make things easier around the house and more affordable in the process, Smart Vent is looking to bring some innovation to those old vent covers we have been using for years: expand full story

We have touchscreens basically everywhere now: phones, tablets, refrigerators, etc. It only seems natural that someone would come up with a simple system to convert just about any modern HDTV into a touchscreen. Sure enough, a crowdfunding campaign has launched to bring this familiar technology to your living room.

The Touchjet WAVE kicked off its project a few days ago and has already blown past its goal.
