Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing

This is Crowdsourcing Weekends on a Tuesday! This post highlights three different crowdsourcing projects I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

REMI Sleep Companion

REMI is your child’s new best friend when it comes to sleep routines. REMI is a smart, customizable sleep companion that goes to sleep with your little one and wakes up with them in the morning, ensuring they stay in bed until it’s time to get up. REMI grows up with your kids and has the ability to learn their sleep routines, becoming more customizable and interactive as time goes on.  REMI uses Bluetooth to connect to your tablets and iOS and Android devices using a mobile app that is easy to navigate for both parents and children. Everything you need to track your little one’s sleep patterns is all available within REMI’s app.

They put in a lot of time designing REMI and interviewing parents to understand what would be most useful.  They worked on several different prototypes and have already developed a network of industrial partners that they can count on to help manufacture REMI. But before they can start manufacturing, they’re bringing REMI to you through Indiegogo to get the feedback and funds that they need to help make REMI a reality.  Here is a summary of what REMI can do!

  • REMI is a night light for little ones who are afraid of the dark
  • Customize your kid’s music to set specialized lullabies
  • Track your child’s sleep easily with our app
  • REMI trains your little ones, telling them when to go to sleep and when to get up
  • Set REMI to wake up your kids when YOU’RE ready

The Wonderful World of Creatures & Code

c75feadeee02e20436583a5297f3d574_original

Nearly two years ago, Heather & Amie were invited to a baby celebration for a dear friend, Matt. Amie & Matt have worked closely together, creating dozens of websites over the years, and he has become part of our chosen family.  They knew exactly what they wanted to get a developer like Matt—a cool kid’s book about code, a book that would introduce Matt’s baby to the nerdy world of websites, apps, and digital products. They were shocked to find that none existed… so, they wrote their own kid’s code book (well, a PDF) with brightly colored words on a black background.

The Wonderful World of Creatures & Code introduces readers of all ages to foundational code terms and tags used to create websites. The book’s world represents their diverse world, with girls, boys, and creatures of all types. WWoCC will be an 8″ by 10,” full-color hardcover book with premium uncoated linen paper stock—your eyes and hands will thank them.  WWoCC colorfully illustrates 26 essential HTML tags and fundamental code elements used in making websites—and has integrated “insider” references that developers and engineers will appreciate. Short, rhyming pairs make reading time fun and easy, even with a complex topic. The creature-filled world draws kids in and keeps them hooked as they learn things like the difference between ordered and unordered lists.

Light is essential in our lives. Light determines our rhythm, the atmosphere around us and even the way we feel. At Lucis, they believe you should be in control of just that.  The Lucis design lamp enables you to play with light. Just touch Lucis and it changes colors & brightness.  Indoor or outdoor; you determine the atmosphere. With the wireless and high quality LED lamp you possess all the colors of the rainbow and you can play with them at will. With up to 80 hours of lighting time you can take the lamp to your garden, to the park or even to the beach. Get in a romantic mood at home or recreate a Northern Light-like surrounding. Play with Lucis and Lucis will give color to tomorrow’s memories.

With Lucis we strive to give you the best experience with light possible. The high quality LED lights host over 16 millions different colors. The beautiful designed Plexiglas housing takes the light to another level en fills your space with any color you want easily.  With only 4 hours of charging, Lucis has 8 to 80 hours of continuous lighting. Already imagine yourself on a warm summer night at the beach? The opportunities are endless, only the sun is the limit.  The beauty and quality of Lucis does not only come from the inside. We equally spent thought and care on the outside. They wanted to design a lamp with a flush design, without external buttons. The touch and shake sensors work easily and literally give Lucis the finishing touch.
