Crowdfunding Mailbox: FaceRig, Biiwatch Remote Selfies & Tools Against Alzheimers

Winter Crowdfunding MailboxHappy Holidays to all of our visitors from Crowdfund Insider.  With all of the parties and family events going on this week and next we still find time to read about all of the many fascinating crowdfunding campaigns going on this busy time of year.  We have had a great 2013 and we are looking forward to an even more exciting 2014 as the crowdfunding industry continues to evolve and grow.  Please keep those emails (and direct tweets) coming.  If you have a campaign you would like us to consider covering please email us at

BiiWatch is crowdfunding on France based international crowdfunding platform Ulule.  BiiWatch is a remote control device which you wear on your wrist to control your smartphone to take video and photographs.  This shock proof and waterproof device is available to take photos when no one else is around to act as your personal cameraman.  I have been there.  Better to have visual proof than just talk about your amazing event or feat of skill.  Just place your iPhone on a tripod and off you go.

FaceRig is already fully funded on Indiegogo having raised an incredible $121,000 over the past few days beating their $120K goal with ease.  You have to watch the video for this one.  Basically you can switch your mug when you are skyping with a video of another “character”.  The virtual character follows your facial expressions and integrates your voice (which can be altered).  You can even use this to create films…  I am sold.  Coming a group of 5 developers from HoloTech Industries in Bucharest, Romania – this team is clearly on to something fun and big.

Normally I would not write about a campaign that lacks a video but these researchers in Malmo, Sweden are trying to do something good by tackling Alzheimers Disease.  Crowdfunding on Indiegogo, the project has experienced some exciting results by talking the debilitative disease by using Nicotine.

FaceRig – Indiegogo

FaceRig is a program that lets you embody awesome characters, with total freedom of face expressions and emotions in real time, by just using a webcam.

FaceRig is a program enabling anyone with a webcam to instantly embody any character they want. The output can be streamed to Skype, Twitch or any service that  uses a webcam. It can also be instantly recorded as a movie. For now we’re focusing on the portrait and the audio, but we aim to do more in the future.

It is currently in development, but we’re already having lots of fun with it. We, the developers, would love to have the chance to finalize it and keep it indie to make it available at a low price for everyone to enjoy;  that’s why we’re on Indiegogo. We hope you’ll join in and help us create something fresh and fun.

Novel Tools Againts Alzheimers

Novel tools against Alzheimer’s disease – Indiegogo

Join our efforts to improve life and survival rate for millions of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. DanPET AB’s founder Dan Peters works.

Join our efforts to improve life and survival rate for millions of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. DanPET AB’s founder Dan Peters works passionately with fulfilling this huge unmet medical need. There is a novel theory about the disease that rivals the previous theories, and may open the road for novel treatment options as well as improved diagnostic power. The race is on globally along this path. Our team has some very promising products in the pipeline, but we are underdogs and desperately need an injection of resources. Help us win the race, and help Alzheimer’s patients to a better life!

Alzheimer’s disease is an incurable brain disease that affects over 40 million people globally, and is expected to increase to 115 million affected individuals by the year 2050. Slowly, gradually, the patient loses the capacities to remember, reason,  learn, speak, and orient themselves. There are no drugs on the market except those that partially and temporarily relieve some of the symptoms.
