Crowdfunding Mailbox: Skriware Simplified 3D Printing, Bolo Rolling Knife & Mokacam Super Small 4K Camera

Mailbox Port CarlingAfter two years of designing and building, the Skriware 3D printer is ready to go.  And so what? There are tons of 3D printers on the market today. Head on over to Amazon and search and hundreds of printers show up. 3D printing is nearly ubiquitous, so what is so special about Skriware’s design? Well they have decided to make a 3D printer that even your parents could operate.  Yep it is that simple.

3D Printing Examples SkiwareA team based in Stockholm, Sweden, decided to compete in a crowded market by making 3D printing as easy as possible. If you can operate a micro-wave machine, you can print with Skiware. The creators are also simultaneously launching the “Skrimarket”.  An online library of 3D printing designs you can create with a single click. That’s all it takes. Nothing more.  Of course if you want to create your own you are welcome to do so. The overall specs are too shabby either.

Crowdfunding on Kickstarter now, you may purchase a printer for SEK 7830 or about $899. Expected to ship this coming April.

Bolo Round KnifeThe Bolo Knife is a product you would expect to see on QVC or “As Seen on TV”.  Bolo is combining a wheel – with a blade.  Of course, you could purchase a Pizza cutter and use that too but the Bolo is designed to take over from much of your Kitching cutting and chopping.

It minces. It slices. It Dices. Bolo is the creation of Chef Randell,  a product merchandiser based in Montreal.  According to his website, Randell has marketed over 2 million “Turbo Cookers” since 1999 (As Seen on TV).  This appears to be his first attempt to leverage crowdfunding to market and sell a new product. So far this pretail campaign has topped its $22,579 goal with the support of over 1100 backers.  Will we see this on the Home Shopping Network soon?  A Bolo costs just $22. Ships in March of 2016.

MokacamMokacam is marketing itself as the “World’s smallest 4K camera”.  The campaign on Indiegogo hit its $50,000 goal in just 48 hours. To date, the Mokacam has raised over $189,000 from more than 1200 backers. So do you need a 4K camera? At $129 it is pretty hard to go wrong. Mokacam would like to challenge established brand GoPro at a better price point. Mokacam comes with a magnetic mount, a GoPro mount adapter and a waterproof case. It is pretty tiny too at just 45mm x 45mm and only 79 grams. It pairs with an accompanying Android/iOS app and uses wifi to manage your digital files. This GoPro challenger is scheduled to ship this coming February.
