Crowdfunding Mailbox: CARV Wearable Ski Coach, Nurugo Smartphone Microscope & Flo Non-Contact Thermometer

Snow covered mailboxCarv is a wearable device that is designed to become your digital ski coach that was inspired by Olympic technology. Full disclosure: I am a dedicated snowboarder but at one point, back in the day, I was a skier. As time went on I realized that I would always be a mediocre skier but I could quickly become a decent boarder hence the shift to shredding.  Perhaps things would be different if Carv was around back then?

Carv is designed to deliver real-time coaching tips by connecting with your smartphone.  Pick a lesson and Carv will analyse and give you pointers to help you perfect your downhill skills – just listen in with your earbuds. This wearable tech is metric driven so you will have plenty of numbers to be able to evaluate how you are doing and how quickly you are advancing. The testimonials on this crowdfunding campaign are pretty impressive too.  Designed for all types of skiers Carv Freestylefrom casual types to competitive pros you just attach the hardware to the back of your boot and install the pressure sensing boot liners. Crowdfunding on Kickstarter 2 Carv trackers and 2 smart inserts will cost you $179 today (if you hurry). Expected to ship this coming November so ready for next year’s ski season.  Perhaps the next iteration will be for boarders? Let us know..

Nurugo image examplesThe smartphone (in my case my iPhone) is my camera of choice these days. The quality of images and ability to shoot photos in all sorts of situations continues to improve at a steady pace. Now Nurugo is taking the ubiquitous camera tech and making it small. By small I mean they have created an attachment that turns your iPhone into a microscope that can magnify up to 400x.  The Nurugo uses the light from the smartphone and leverages it to help illuminate the object you are photographing.   This is great for kids who are interested in science and pros on the go who want a quick visual of something without having to lug around overly expensive and unwieldy optics.

Crowdfunding on Kickstarter Nurugo is just $39 at the educational rate. Ships this coming May.

FLo and AppI remember when I was a kid and my parents wanted to take my temperature when I was ill. The old mercury filled glass stick came out as they attempted to stick it somewhere they could get an accurate read as to whether or not I had a fever. It’s about time someone updated the temperature taking process and Flo does it by simply pointing the device close to a child’s forehead. No struggle with getting underneath a tongue.

Flo uses an infra-red sensor to measure the temperature of kids and more. The Flo device pairs with your smartphone to easily track temperatures and trends over an extended period of time.

Flo can also be put to use for other tasks as well. Gauged the temperature of water or other liquids to make certain they are not too hot.

Crowdfunding on Kickstarter, Flo costs only $22. Scheduled to ship this coming May.
