Kickstarter Projects You Might Want to Kickstart: iPad Edition
This week’s iPad Kickstarter projects feature a little bit of functionality, nostalgia, and cuteness all wrapped into a money-grubbing package.
Brydge iPad laptop Accessory
Funding goal: $90,000
Funding raised: $696,073
Days to go: 4
The Brydge iPad laptop accessory quite literally acts as a bridge between the notebook and tablet worlds. The keyboard add on creates a nearly seamless laptop appearance when attached to the iPad. The anodized and machined aluminum body matches the iPad perfectly, and the chicklet-like keyboard simulates Apple’s Macbooks well. The Brydge includes built-in speakers and connects to the iPad via bluetooth, so no wires are needed.
Funding goal: $10,000
Funding raised: $7,526
Days to go: 49 hours
I can’t be sure I’d personally use a CushPad, but creator Adam Raby hasn’t stopped using his since building the first prototype last September. Raby created the CushPad as means to use his iPad more comfortably on the couch or in bed. Raby has already launched a pilot test of the CushPad and sold through his stock. He’s working on a new improved CushPad, and is hoping to use the Kickstarter funds to begin manufacturing the new design. Pledges of at least $30 get backers a Cushpad shipped to their door.
Etcher: Etch A Sketch for iPad
Funding goal: $75,000
Funding raised: $22,488
Days to go: 9
This project is a concentrated dose of nostalgia. The Etcher literally turns your iPad into a high-tech Etch A Sketch. The Etcher adds the knobs to control your creations just like you did as a child, and the iPad adds the digital and social functionality. Users can save their drawings in digital formats, and share them via email or social media outlets like Facebook and Flickr. They can even save a timelapse of your creation or upload it directly to YouTube. The early adopter pledge is already sold out, but those wanting to relive some of their youth need only donate $60 to secure their own Etcher in either Ohio Red or True Blue.
