Four campaigns this week’s mailbox. We have had a good number of email submissions these past few days – keep them coming. A suggestion for campaign creators – if you are emailing about campaigns that have not yet launched – please send a follow-up email once the campaigns go live. Sometimes the avalanche of emails get pretty overwhelming and I do not want to forget to check out a campaign that has gone live.
I use my iPhone to take photos and videos a lot. It is my camera of choice – similar to the rest of the world. I am always looking for ways to improve the images / videos though – and StaybilCam has designed something pretty practical solving a nagging issue. Designed by Eskil Nordhaug based in Port Ludlow, Washington, StayblCam is an inexpensive video stabilizer that can make your iPhone or GoPro videos look like professional shots. Shaky videos suck. StayblCam has the solution. If you are a serious videographer or just love to shoot video – you should definitely check out this campaign crowdfunding on Kickstarter now.
As you probably know by now I am a bit of geek. I love tech gadget porn. My cocoon backpack is jammed full of stuff I need to stay connect on the road. Now I have just found another item to add to my list of things I must have while traveling. TabletTail allows you to position your iPad in any position you need. This campaign is from Octa, based in Denver, Colorado. They are crowdfunding on Kickstarter now but they are not crowdfunding virgins as they offered up a similar campaign in 2013 where they raised over $100,000. This is round two with a new an improved version.
Smart-me is a campaign by David Eberli, based in Zurich, Switzerland. David is crowdfunding on Indiegogo and looking to raises $25,000 for a pretty practical device. Smart-me is an energy / power meter with a remote switch, timer and temperature device. Sure in the coming years every home will be “smart” and we will control everything on our iPads and iPhones from a central command center (which we may hear about next week at WWDC). But Smart-me is a simple, relatively inexpensive device that allows you to plug in anything and control it anywhere while monitoring usage on your iPhone (and Android device). Early bird backers can purchase a Smart-me for $99. Expected shipping date is October 2014.

Anyone who has ever tried to record video with a smart phone or small digital cameras knows it is nearly impossible to avoid shaking or jittering in the picture – no matter how steady we try holding our hands.
