"wakes you with light? good luck."


paying $300 for a pillow is dumb, but light alarm clocks work. i started waking up with a light alarm clock app on my phone and it wakes me up before my audible alarm about 90% of the time and my wife can sleep in. you should try it, it feels more like waking up naturally.

What do you guys think of this?

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1071673943/amabrush-worlds-first-automatic-toothbrush

Save 100 days of your life, while each tooth surface is brushed 8 times longer....

Quote :
"Amabrush can brush your teeth in just 10 seconds, because all your teeth are cleaned simultaneously. Even in this 10 seconds, every tooth surface is cleaned longer compared with common toothbrushes. If you brush your teeth for the recommended 120 seconds with a regular toothbrush (manual or electric), every surface gets brushed for just 1.25 seconds (given the fact that you have 32 teeth and every teeth has three surfaces). Amabrush brushes all your surfaces for whole 10 seconds. This means: every tooth surface gets brushed 8x longer and the total toothbrushing duration is 12x quicker."


I would get it if only it works as well as they say it does. It is not about how much time you save during your life, but does it actually do a better job than brushing manually.

Will wait and see how... more products like that sure to come out over the years.

I get what you/they are saying...but this just isn't right and it bothers me when people say it like this.

Actually a very useful item

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/twopillars/unilid

The average American family apparently spends $200/year on Al foil and plastic wraps... I am very environmentally conscious to begin with, so I spend well below $5/year on such products, but that product still appeals to me.

Seems like a pretty smart idea. And I'll bet a lot of environmentally-conscious people would buy those. But I'm more about the convenience of disposable alternatives, and for that reason, I'm out.

That seems like a bullshit number, even if you include ziplock bags. Where's your data?

I feel like most KS campaigns throw out a ridiculously low funding number just so they can tout how popular they must be based on surpassing their "goal".

^^^ Wow, I have been wondering for the past few years why the roll I bought in 2014 just sucks. It sucks so bad I still have some of it. I remember that when I was in the US before (96-03), it used to work like magic, nothing like the crap now.

Now I know.

Does food go bad overnight if you just cover the dish with aluminum foil or something?

I gotta get this, if it really is as advertised and as they show in the video:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1466745684/tropic-the-ultimate-travel-shoe

A show with all the characteristics below and looks great?

^^NOPE
^AND NOPE

Don't feel sorry for them. I understand that supporting Kickstarter is a risk with potentially no return. But! These guys went to market with their product and didn't deliver on all orders. Tah me, different ballgame, tah me. Oh well, paid a $200 stupid tax and makes me less likely support future campaigns

I'm sure that CEO Ryan Grepper didn't make a butt ton of money off this failed Kickstarter.

I got mine a couple years ago and it was pretty underwhelming. the battery doesn't hold a charge anymore and they don't sell additional batteries (sold out for over a year now). about to take it apart now to repair it since there's a snowball's chance in hell of getting a replacement.
