Crowdfunding Mailbox: OphoKeys Music Keyboard, Piper Minecraft Toolbox & FlexCharger

Mailbox GermanyLearn. Play. Repeat. If you could upload to your cerebral cortex the ability to play any instrument you wanted –  everyone would do it. Unfortunately that is not the case.

While some of us are “gifted”, others have “ability”, and most people just struggle along, we now have a new device to help us learn to play the piano. OphoKeys is an incredibly creative piece of hardware to intuitively teach you to play the keyboards. But if you are already blessed with ability – go crazy with the cool tech, and new spin on the piano, and rock away.

There have been more than a few really cool crowdfunding campaigns with music technology but I really love what the team at Opho has put together.  The combination of seamless technology integrated with a musical set of keys is really amazing. Opho has added some interesting functionality too.  There is gesture control so you can adjust the sound just by waving your hand.

Team Opho KeysThis may be the future of keyboards. I will let you know after I receive mine.  Crowdfunding now on Indiegogo and easily fully funded.

Do you play Minecraft? Do you know about Minecraft? If you said yes to either question you are probably either under 18 or a parent with a child under the age of 18.

Minecraft is an online, multi-player phenomena that took over the online gaming world a few years ago when creator Markus Persson (Notch) somehow created one of the most addictive games of all time. The ability to design, build and interact within a virtual universe has captured the imagination, and time, of Minecraft Toolbox kidsmillions. Notch recently sold Minecraft to Microsoft becoming an instant billionaire… Anyway Piper, “a Minecraft Toolbox for Everyone Who Likes Building” brings Minecraft back from the digital domain and into the real world. What can you do with Piper? Play, build, assemble your own electronics – it is all open source.

FlexCharger iPhoneIf you know nothing about Minecraft you won’t get this. If you do – rejoice! Crowdfunding on Kickstarter and cruising higher. Fully funded having more than doubled its $50,000 goal.

Most people these days have multiple objects that need continuous charging. iPhone’s, iPads, batteries, laptops … the list just keeps growing. Until we have figured out how to master ambient wireless charging (and it will happen) we still are anchored to that three pronged outlet – wherever you may be. Between USB ports and lightening connections I have things connected everywhere. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a single, practical connector, that hooks up with everything? Well that is what FlexCharger can do. Multiple devices, fast (finally!), works internationally – this is the Swiss Army Knife of chargers.  Even better the creators have baked in a Wi-Fi signal repeater and a flip out tray to perch your device.

Crowdfunding on Indiegogo and topping $100,000 on a $10K goal.
