Crowdfunding Mailbox: LyfeLens Dash Cam, Coolbox Smart Toolbox & Viper for IoT

crowdfundinsidermailboxLyfeLens is a 360º dash cam for your car.  Now some people may be a bit concerned about documenting their driving habits but for others having a dash cam that works when you are driving your car, and when you are not, could be a pretty useful tool.

In some parts of the world it is pretty typical to have a dash cam filming your travels but in the US it is pretty much just law enforcement personal that are recording their actions. LyfeLens records but it also does so much more.

To completely benefit from LyfeLens you need to have a data contract for the product but once you do you can get notified of when your car is being broken into; locate your LyfeLens Smartercar when you have misplaced it (happens more than you would think); alert you when you car is bumped or scratched;  track your travel (location, mileage, speed etc.) and it also acts as a wireless router for all your devices while you are on the go.

Have you ever had someone break into your car? I have. Multiple times.  I would have loved to have a picture taken of the rude person who tossed a cinder block through the driver side window. Wish I had possessed a LyfeLens back then…

Crowdfunding using Tilt as a pretail campaign.  Only $199 (data plan separate). Great pitch video too.Coolbox Whiteboard

COOLBOX- The world’s smartest toolbox – Indiegogo

Coolbox brought the classic toolbox into the 21st century. Tools have changed, why not the toolbox?

Coolbox Smart Tool boxWhen we’re not busy working 7 days on a week trying to succeed in the start up world, we also enjoy doing hobby projects around the house. These experiences inspired us to reexamine the toolbox and all of the potential it could have as an all-in-one product offering.

We were tired of bringing speakers, phone charger, note pad, and lights with us to every job amongst other things, so that inspired the all-in-one solution.  We think it was long overdue that someone reinvented this important carrying case.

The Coolbox features all of the classic storage and compartments you would want but with a modern twist to keep up with the times.
