The biggest technology innovations don’t come from “big tech” companies, but from smaller startups that chase their dreams. Thanks to crowdfunding sites, you will be the first to get the best new products. These are the four coolest tools at the moment.
The four coolest tools
Not everyone is familiar with the principle of crowdfunding, and this is normal. It’s still a relatively new concept, but it can help creators make a difference. You first support a great idea for a product, and then you can continue to progress until the package reaches your door. We have selected for you the four best novelties.
1. Illumi Key – LED Indicator Key & Phone Tracker
For anyone who often loses their keys or phone.
What is that?
As the name suggests, the Illumi switch is a switch that turns on the light. In the companion app, you locate your home and then the switch lights up once you get home. This way you will find the correct key faster and you will not stand in front of the front door and try several keys before you can enter. If you have multiple keys for a group, you can assign a separate location to each of them. On the other hand, you can also use the Illumi key to find your lost phone. You can order the keys online and then process them in a locksmith.
- Ilumi key – Kickstarter 29 euro all inclusive. Shipping – Expected December 2022
2. Titan SnapStand – Versatile kickstand in different sizes
For those who want to put a tablet, phone, or other electronic device upright.
What is that?
SnapStand by Titan is a global platform for your devices. It comes in three different sizes so you can put phones, tablets, and laptops upright. You can select the angle at which you place your device upright very precisely which works with a built-in hinge. Moreover, with the kickstand, you will always have a magnetic sticker that you can attach to a device so that it stands firmly.
- Titan SnapStand – Kickstarter – 41 euros inclusive. Shipping – Expected August 2022
3. PixelCable – USB-C charging cable with OLED display
For anyone excited about the idea of a smart charging cable with screen and animation of your choice.
What is that?
PixelCable wants to make the charging experience with your phone and laptop even better. The OLED display shows the power you’re charging the device with, and you also see how much charge it’s actually charged in percentage. The PixelCable supports charging up to 100W, so you can also use it to charge laptops via the USB-C port. In addition, you can install the corresponding application on your phone to display fun texts, animations or emojis on the screen. PixelCable is available in Lightning and USB-C.

4. RxKeepe- Smart Medicine Box
For those who take medication regularly and are prone to forgetting it.
What is that?
Do you take birth control pills every day or does your father or grandfather have an entire box full? RxKeepe ensures that you never forget to take your medicine. The app sends you a notification when it’s time to take a pill, and if there’s no answer, RxKeepe can still text, email, or call. If that’s not enough to get your attention, the app can still turn on your smart speakers or make your home’s smart lights flash. The box also has a temperature sensor that helps you keep the medicine at the right temperature and in the app you can read the medicine you are taking or not taking in recent weeks.
- RxKeepe – Kickstarter 28 euros inclusive. Shipping – Expected July 2022
Think about this with crowdfunding
Keep in mind that with crowdfunding, you always support an idea in the first place, without any real guarantee that the actual product will meet your expectations. So choose projects and startups that you really believe in and follow the regular updates on development and shipping that startups offer.
