This is Crowdsourcing Weekends! This post highlights three different crowdsourcing projects I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Walli Smart Wallet
Thousands of men forget or lose their wallet every day, including ourselves. They knew their had to be a way to prevent this from happening so often, so they decided to put their heads together and come up with a solution to this annoying problem! Losing your wallet, or simply, leaving it behind when you really need it, can be quite a drag. Whether you forget your wallet at home, it slips out of your pocket, or you leave it behind somewhere. There are always consequences! Like having to go to the DMV to get a new driver’s license, losing cash and having to report to credit card companies even.
With Walli, you never have to worry about that problem again! You get instant notifications wherever and whenever you forget (or leave) your Walli behind! The world’s smartest wallet, Walli connects to your phone and sends you a notification wherever and whenever you leave it behind! Walli will also notify you if you leave a card behind. Once you connect Walli to your phone, the Walli App continuously monitors your wallet activity! Walli connects to your smartphone over bluetooth & works with Android & IOS. The Walli App will display notification on your phone once you get too far from it. Walli is made of genuine leather and is dust-proof, we are working on making Walli completely water-proof.
As of November 22nd, this project has raised around $48,000 of their $25,000 goal. This project only has 37 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $89, you will get one Walli wallet. For a pledge of $169, you will get one Walli combo pack. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/walli-the-smart-wallet#/
Make Time Clock
Make Time Clock records progress. It has a single button to “clock-in” during work sessions. As you use it you’ll begin to understand your creative rhythm and be empowered to harness it. Balancing creativity with everyday life is hard. Too often a day will end in front of the TV instead of rallying to make progress on a side project. Since nobody’s expecting the work and the deadlines are internal, projects slow to a crawl without much consequence. But with Make Time Clock, there’s a physical monument to your project and progress. This can create a shared understanding between you and loved ones who share your space and want to support your projects.
Using a clock can be helpful to young creators or experienced folks looking to take on a new challenge. Its minimalist design can adapt to most creative projects. Make Time Clock is a beautiful object that’s finished like a fine piece of furniture. They designed it so that you’ll be proud to display it in your workspace. The clock is crafted out of solid walnut and sits almost 3 inches square. It has 6 RGB LEDs on the front, a metal switch on the top, and a power cord on the back. Inside is a WiFi and a power module. This allows you to connect the clock to your local network to customize settings with their free companion app.
As of November 22nd, this project has raised around $35,000 of their $25,000 goal. This project only has 12 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $99, you will get one clock. For a pledge of $199, you will get a cherry wood clock. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chapambrose/make-time-clock-get-serious-about-side-projects
