Our floating double chaise lounge chairs are perfect for resorts and remote getaways anywhere in the world.”

Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Kicks Off for HAPIfork to Help People Slow Down How Fast They Eat

21 Apr

By Robert Hoskins

HAPILABS announced the launch of their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the manufacturing and distribution of HAPIfork – the world’s first connected fork that helps people monitor how much they eat.

HAPIfork transforms people’s relationship with food as it monitors how fast the user is eating and helps them slow down. Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, HAPIfork was selected among the finalists for the CES Innovations Award, Health & Wellness category. The word quickly spread in over 50 countries globally culminating in hundreds of articles, blog posts, tweets, television and radio appearances as well as a fun shout out from The Colbert Report.

“While our product is still a prototype, we’re thrilled by the global response so far,” says Fabrice Boutain, HAPILABS founder. “We believe this is affirmation of the growing consumer health awareness movement to gain better control of issues impacting weight and digestive issues as well as more serious issues such as diabetes and other chronic conditions.”

Keeping in line with Kickstarter rewards at various funding levels, the HAPIfork will be offered as a perk for up to 2,500 people funding $89, and at the $99 level for anyone else who would like to be in the first commercial batch. In addition, the opportunity to be part of the beta testing program, receiving the HAPIfork at the earliest possible availability date, is offered at the $300 level perk. The campaign, which starts today and runs until May 31, 2013, has a fundraising target of $100,000.

HAPIfork was designed by French entrepreneur and inventor Jacques Lépine whose idea was based on research which shows that by eating slower, people can improve the way they feel, improve their digestion and lose weight. HAPIfork aims to modify eating behavior by slowing down how fast people eat and being more present with when and how long it takes to eat, leading to an overall healthier state of being and living.

Unlike other health related tools, the HAPIfork is inconspicuous and appropriate for out of home use. The Bluetooth enabled smart fork also collects information for future analysis or monitoring in clinical settings. All data is transmitted to a ‘personalized online dashboard’ when the HAPIfork is connected to the users computer or mobile device making it easy to monitor eating habits and health improvement at home or on the road.

HAPIfork will be released in three colors (blue, green and pink) and will ship to Kickstarter funders first before the general public. HAPIfork comes with a color coordinated case making it easy to carry everywhere. The product will initially go on sale in the US and EU in the fourth quarter of this year.

HAPILABS helps individuals in the 21st century take control of their HAPIness, health and fitness through applications and mobile connected devices. HAPIfork is part of suite of devices, applications and services from HAPILABS aimed at improving overall health, well being and happiness. Products in development include the HAPIwatch to help people sleep better and the HAPItrack to help people stay in great shape. Offering elegant and simple solutions, HAPILABS helps people achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Stick-N-Find Technologies Announces Precision Bluetooth Locating, Extended Range and Future Plans at Mobile World Congress 2013

4 Mar

By Robert Hoskins

Stick-N-Find Technologies made multiple announcements around the production of its popular ultra-small Bluetooth location stickers, which included:

StickNFind Bluetooth Location Stickers Track up to 150 Feet

  • Precise Radar Resolution – Enables users to pinpoint stickers within two inches of its location, using Stick-N-Find’s patent-pending algorithms and techniques.
  • Extended range of up to 150 feet – Achieved with custom designed antenna and a proprietary mixed non-absorbent plastic casing, enabling expanded reach.
  • Completely intuitive redesigned, easy-to-use consumer mobile application.
  • Shipping begins next week – One month ahead of schedule and a first early shipment announced in the crowdfunding industry.

“We have been working day and night to make the SticknFind Stickers amazing. Our focus has been on reliability and ease of use. Our goal was the ability to pinpoint the sticker in a large house, without the necessity of the buzzer feature. Our radar resolution now is so high, the App will guide any user within inches from the sticker,” said Jimmy Buchheim , CEO of Stick-N-Find Technologies.

Buchheim continued, “We have been working very closely with our suppliers, we even produced our first 20,000 stickers in USA, to ensure that we shipped before our promised dates (originally March 31st). It was exciting for us to announce the shipped date for our contributors, but also the new feature-rich easy to use mobile application. New features on the App include the pinpoint location accuracy and extended range of up to 150 feet. We will continue to make improvements on the performance and form factor of StickNFind.”

StickNFind made its debut in December 2012 on Indiegogo, with its first showcase at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. StickNFind was one of the top crowdfunded projects of all time on the Indiegogo platform raising more than $930,000 in less than six weeks.

Other announcements during the press conference included a future-looking retail launch projection for StickNFind in April 2013 (retail partners soon to be announced). In addition, Buchheim announced StickNFind’s enterprise application projections for the medical industry, government agencies and libraries for both StickNFind and its longer range device, BluTracker.

Life-Spot Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Unveils Universal Gadget Charging Tower

1 Mar

In today’s world of  iPhones, Androids, Tablets, Kindles and other electronic devices that need to be charged, many kitchen counter tops resemble a a plate of spaghetti.  But with a little luck and plenty of Kickstarter donors, Life-Spot plants to roll out a  highly efficient and universal, multi-unit gadget charging station for the home, office and business.

Life-Spot Universal Charging Station for Household Gadgets

With a beautiful, triangular design, Life-Spot allows users to charge up to eight devices at once and each of its storage compartments has a unique, retractable adapter that serves to connect devices easily and safely while keeping the area organized and clutter-free.

With two lightning ports, two 30pin dock connectors and four micro USB ports, Life-Spot can charge anything from phones to tablets, e-readers, iPods, cameras, headsets and other Bluetooth devices, GPS systems, battery packs and more. Life-Spot can also be sat on a table, desk, countertop or even mounted on a wall.

Judith and Aaron Altheim, creators of Life-Spot, came up with the idea while hosting their daughter’s birthday party at their house, and found they were surprised about the number of people asking to borrow a phone charger. However, Judith and Aaron only had two chargers which were not compatible with their cell phone models.

“As a married couple, we’ve been working on this project for two years,” says Altheim. “From the first sketch to the functional prototype, we spent hours and hours to ensure the best quality, most efficient and practical product.”

In order for Judith and Aaron Altheim, creators of Life-Spot, to bring the product to market, they need to raise $50,000 to cover the costs of manufacturing the charging station. The married couple is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on the most popular platform, Kickstarter, in order to raise the necessary funds.

Currently, Life-Spot has raised over $8,000 on Kickstarter, but still needs another $42,000 to make it to production. If you’d like to support this project, visit http://bit.ly/Life-SpotKS to learn more, or make a donation in exchange for one of the first products when it hits the market.
