San Francisco, CaliforniaAmabrush is the world’s first, fully automatic toothbrush and is cleaning up with its current Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign goal having raised €910,000 from 7,900 backers. This patent-pending dental device brushes all your teeth at once, fully automatic, and finishes in just ten seconds. All you have to do is press a single button, wait ten seconds, and you’ll have perfectly clean teeth! You never have to brush your teeth again!

With Amabrush’s App for iOS & Android, you are able to connect to your Amabrush unit via Bluetooth at no additional cost and make use of various possibilities. You can set different vibration mode such as gum massage, whitening, burst mode, configure cleaning time, reorder replacement parts and do many things more!

Let’s face it: brushing your teeth is not exactly the sexiest thing on Earth. You have to squeeze, scrub, gargle, spit, rinse and floss every morning and evening, every day of your life. Many of us hate brushing our teeth so much that we avoid doing so whenever possible—even though we know we shouldn’t.
Brushing our teeth at least twice a day maintains good dental health. This is why we invented Amabrush—a device three years in the making with a single goal: to make toothbrushing quicker, automatic, and more efficient so you have more time for the relevant things in your life.

Amabrush is not meant to be better than your regular toothbrush. Wait, what? That’s true! Regular toothbrushes (manual and electric) are tools. And tools are only as good as the person using it! The key thing is that most of us use them wrong, or even worse, are not using them at all.

Brushing teeth is a job where you must be highly concentrated. Toothbrushes should be held like pencils, so that pressure is as light as possible. The bristles should be soft, in order to not damage your gums. And you should just wiggle the toothbrush with subtle vibrations, instead of doing long strokes. Electric toothbrushes are handled differently than manual ones. With them, you shouldn’t stroke at all. These toothbrushes are designed to be held in place, so that the micro vibrations of the bristles can do their job (they wiggle for you).

Amabrush covers all of the recommended methods. The bristles are aligned in a 45° angle against the gum line, and are soft enough in order to rub instead to scratch (like nylon bristles). And the pressure against your teeth is light. Subtle vibrations move the bristles back-and-forth, which allows them to remove plaque and keep your gums undamaged.

Amabrush was designed to make toothbrushing less annoying. Some of us hate toothbrushing so much, that we brush not concentrated enough, not long enough, not good enough, or not at all. And some of us simply can not brush correctly at all, because they are not able to do so. This is our goal. Right toothbrushing for everyone and automatically!

Amabrush’s Antibacterial Material

The flexible mouthpiece has built-in micro-channels that transport the toothpaste to your teeth. The mouthpiece is made of antibacterial silicone that kills 99.99% of all bacteria and features 3D-arranged bristles on both sides to clean your teeth. It’s soft enough to prevent gum damage but strong enough to clean your teeth precisely. It can be cleansed by normal rinsing, as you would do it with regular toothbrushes.

Amabrush’s Brushing Technique

The bristles are directed in a 45° angle against your gingival cuff. This simulates the Bass method, which is recommended by dentists and experts. The bristles are comparable to soft-bristled toothbrushes. This ensures the most comfortable, safest toothbrushing and makes gum-damage impossible. We work closely with dentists and dental universities to address two concerns: clean teeth and no gum damage.

Amabrush’s One-Size-Fits-All

We analyzed over 2,000 different jaws from adult females and males. The small difference between both genders is smoothed out by the flexible material of the mouthpiece. The used material has the characteristic to fit every jaw with no abnormal teeth displacements.

New B2v2 headband helps relax and rebalance brain waves to reduce stress, improve quality of sleep and enhance emotional well-being

New B2v2 headband helps relax and rebalance brain waves to reduce stress, improve quality of sleep and enhance emotional well-being

Utilizing Brain State’s proprietary software, the B2v2 converts an individual’s unique brainwaves from both frontal poles and temporal lobes into corresponding music-like tones, recognizing out-of-balance brainwaves measured in real time. The wearable headband relaxes the brain by rebalancing brainwaves for stress relief and improved sleep, resulting in increased energy, more focused performance and significant enhancement of a client’s overall emotional well-being.

The new B2v2 technology is designed to help over 60 million Americans suffering from sleep deprivation and high stress levels. More than 122,000 users have been helped through Brainwave Optimization® since its introduction in 2004.

According to Lee Gerdes, Brain State CEO “Stress affects emotions, behavior, thinking ability and physical health. B2v2 helps the brain reset itself reducing the negative effects of stress. B2v2 supports the brain to move back to a naturally balanced performance pattern by reflecting each individual’s unique brain waves. It’s unlike any other technology ever developed.”

Gerdes added, “No two brains are alike. After using the B-2 over time, a user’s brain actually becomes more resilient to maintaining improvements, even when not using the device, which simply helps the body’s most important organ to self-correct and balance its circadian rhythms. The B-2 is non-invasive and users don’t have to sleep with it on.”

Thousands of current loyal users of the B-2 headband will receive a $200 discount for their B-2 headband only upgrade during the Kickstarter campaign.

The company plans to significantly surpass their initial funding goal before its conclusion on July 27. The B2v2 is available now on Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/632221988/technology-to-help-you-sleep

28 Jun

Homsecure is designed to connect existing home alarm systems and send alerts to a user’s smartphone while they’re away

By Robert HoskinsCrowdfunding PR

Dublin, California – After launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter less than a month ago, Wavepod Technologies now offers Homsecure, a smart device allows users to upgrade their home security systems using smart technology at a more affordable price than competitors. Homsecure allows users to stay more connected with the status of their home, and requires very little setup.

Homsecure is a smart WiFi device that connects your existing home alarms and provides alerts on your phone when you are away

“Our friends and family are already using Homsecure, all with great results!” said Sundeep Chauhan, CEO of Homsecure. “In the process, we have established partnerships locally and abroad to enable us to successfully manufacture Homsecure.”

Having a secure and safe home is invaluable. Homsecure creates an added sense of security using smart technology and notifying owners when something goes wrong. Not only will consumers feel more at ease about the status of their home when they are away, but Homsecure also works seamlessly with existing alarms. This means installation is easy and allows for all of the benefits of smart technology, without the need to replace the entire system.

Integrating pre-existing alarms ensures that Homsecure is fully equipped to keep a user’s home safe while also maintaining assurance. Leaving the home can be hard for certain people. This device is able to give homeowners peace of mind. Additionally, in case of power outages, internet connection issues, or tampering, Homsecure is computerized to send notifications immediately.

Cheaper than other alternatives currently on the market, Homsecure only requires one device to fully function throughout the entire home. Companies like ADT charge hundreds of dollars a year for the same capabilities that Wavepod Technologies has created through this device.

The team has been working extremely hard to ensure Homsecure is not only a concept, but an actual product. Wavepod Technologies has already developed both an iOS and an Android app, a cloud platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and successfully manufactured the final design prototype. In the process, they have established partnerships locally and abroad to enable them to successfully manufacture Homsecure.

FitForLaunch.com Launches Rewards-Based Crowdfunding Campaigns for Enomad, Knops, M3 and Snapmaker

28 Jun

To date, the new crowdfunding platform has successfully raised $8.2 million for product development and guarantees delivery for crowdfunded pre-orders

By Robert HoskinsCrowdfunding PR

Fulton, MarylandFitForLaunch announced the launch of its new platform for crowdfunding pre-orders. FitForLaunch is unique in that it offers consumers peace of mind with a delivery guarantee, so that they can pre-order the coolest tech without any risks. Should a business fail to deliver within 12 months, FitForLaunch will either refund their purchase or secure an equal or better replacement.

FitForLaunch.com Launches Rewards-Based Crowdfunding Campaigns for Enomad, Knops, M3 and Snapmaker

FitForLaunch.com Launches Rewards Crowdfunding Campaigns for Enomad, Knops, M3 and Snapmaker

Every company that joins FitForLaunch undergoes a thorough vetting in 5 key areas: Market feasibility, technical feasibility, production feasibility, financial feasibility and creator feasibility. Each key area is evaluated by a team of subject matter experts; only companies that are viable in all key areas are permitted to join the platform and considered fit for launch.

FitForLaunch debuted in June 2017 with four companies (M3D, Snapmaker, Knops, and Enomad) that have already had successful crowdfunding campaigns representing a total of $8.2 million raised for product development. FitForLaunch expects to add a dozen additional vetted companies every month and aims to help them increase pre-order revenues by addressing new markets.

FitForLaunch companies also benefit by having access to strategic advice in areas of marketing, manufacturing, employment, and even taxes.  Helping companies learn how to keep their costs down and have sound strategies maximizes their chance of success.  FitForLaunch’s experience allows us to help companies avoid pitfalls and save hundreds of thousands, if not millions.  A short conversation with an expert can have a huge impact and is an additional value for companies joining the platform.

FitForLaunch encourages companies with new products to take pre-orders using a crowdfunding-type mechanism as opposed to setting up their own ecommerce site until they are in stock.  Leveraging a platform like FitForLaunch also helps protect them from fraud, chargebacks and merchant processor holdback reserves.  Many creators do not realize that credit card processors have the potential to devastate a startup by denying them access to the funds they’ve raised.  New companies also may lack the resources for setting up their own ecommerce site and maintaining it along with screening purchases against fraud and dealing with chargebacks.

FitForLaunch was born out of witnessing failures that were predictable due to our fundamental understanding of the crowdfunding space and experience with manufacturing operations.  We saw trust in the crowdfunding space falling and wanted to do something about it.  We developed a proprietary system for predicting success – our own underwriting process for gaging risk.  We then surveyed buyers and found an underserved market of purchasers that would pre-order projects only if given a guarantee, even with a significant additional fee.  FitForLaunch was then setup as a way to effectively communicate and support our own vetting and guarantee process.

 The Ambi Climate Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room’s Ambient Temperature and Humidity

27 Jun

The Ambi Climate uses artificial intelligence (AI) software to generate temperature and humidity profiles and then collects and learns from actual user comfort feedback via a smartphone app to develop real world, year round profiles

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Hong Kong – Optimizing AC use is not an easy task, which is why the Ambi Climate 2 makes use of artificial intelligence to personalize ambient conditions. Apparently, a lot of people loved the Ambi Climate unit’s value-added business proposition so much that Ambi Labs raised over HK$1,215,900 from 1,016 backers via its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that ended on June 22, 2017.

 The Ambi Climate that Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room's Ambient Temperature and Humidity

The Ambi Climate that Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room’s Ambient Temperature and Humidity

The Ambi Climate was created by Ambi Labs, a Hong Kong-based company founded by Julian Lee, Paul Sykes, and Tim Chang. They state their mission as being a sort of ‘leave no man behind’ approach to technology, wherein aged appliances are given a makeover using modern innovation. With the second edition of the Ambi Climate, the aim remains to make air conditioners more energy-efficient and customizable.

The device achieves that with the help of AI software, which studies user comfort and the corresponding conditions to create unique profiles for them. It finds out how comfortable a user is at any given time via a mobile app, where you can tell the device how much its estimation of your comfort level differs from what it actually is. As you do that over different months and passing seasons, the AI learns your individual preferences and optimizes the temperature accordingly.

While user feedback is one way the Ambi Climate tweaks its own operation, it isn’t the only way. The device uses a variety of sensors to track such factors as humidity and sunlight. It also gathers data from the Web to understand weather trends during that time of year, clothing people are most likely to have on, and temperature variations at different times of the day. It uses all this information to deliver the most appropriate climate control automatically. According to the creators, that leads to as much as 30 percent savings in power bills.

Ambi Climate can be paired with air conditioners using the Ambi Climate App, which is available for Android and iOS users. Once that’s done, you can place the device in view of the AC and leave it to do its thing. The app also enables a geo-location feature; the Ambi Climate finds out when you’re about to get home and fires up the AC, so conditions are perfect as you walk in. You can tie those features in with other smart home IOT paraphernalia thanks to IFTTT and Amazon Alexa integrations.

Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Introduces Cool New Tool for Restaurants to Safely Devein Lobsters that Is Super Fast and More Thorough than Using a Broken Antennae

26 Jun

 The patent-pending Lobster Deveiner is currently the only tool on the market that can quickly and effectively clean any lobster properly

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Scott Mobley, firefighter and creator of the first Lobster Deveining Tool, is launching his first Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on Saturday, July 1, 2017. Mobley has created the first ever tool to devein lobster safely, quickly, and more efficiently than any other method. He has appropriately named his company “D Vein.”

Scott Mobley demonstrating how simple it is to prepare lobster using the Lobster Deveining Tool

As a fire fighter from Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue, Mobley has learned to cherish every day and make it count, as it could be his last. On his days off, Mobley enjoys fishing and diving, especially for lobsters. Since he was young, Mobley dreaded cleaning spiny lobsters with their broken antennae the old-fashioned way and now, 20+ years later, Mobley has created the first Lobster Deveiner designed to remove the intestinal tract without the hassle.

Mobley was inspired to create this one-of-a-kind tool from his love of fishing and catching lobster. This is the very first product ever invented to devein and properly clean lobster.

The Lobster Deveiner Tool is currently the only tool on the market that can quickly and effectively clean any lobster properly. This tool is patent-pending and works great and has been getting outstanding reviews and the feedback from all of the people in the lobster fishing business that have seen it.

“Let me just say, the days of dreading cleaning the lobsters we catch are long gone. Some people might just say, ‘Why not just use the free antennae?’  You could, but if you clean as many lobsters as we do, we recommend buying the $8 lobster cleaning tool.  It is just so much faster, easier and more dependable than using a broken antennae.”-B. Jax

“Saves a lot of time, works really well. Greatest invention yet for lobster season.”- LA Livin

D Vein will be available exclusively online via Kickstarter beginning Saturday, July 1 at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/219595839/911454420?token=d3f1f482.

zeAC, a New Type of Air Conditioner that Uses Zero Electricity to Cool Rooms, Is Raising Funds Via Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign

19 Jun

 The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort throughout through the day and night

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Lanham, Maryland – The patent-pending Zero Electric Air-conditioned (zeAC) plans to raise $250,000 through its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to finance the project, which has the potential to revolutionize the conventional and established concepts of air-conditioning that require large amounts of electricity and leave a dirty carbon footprint. The zeAC units are a great way to cool rooms in both homes and offices while reducing the amount of air pollution being produced by coal power plants that are causing the earth’s temperature to rise.

The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort, throughout through the day and night

The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort, throughout through the day and night

“We have researched and created a green air conditioning solution that can cool rooms without using electricity,” said Anaele Iroh, zeAC’s inventor. “The device works by absorbing vapor from the air and brings down temperature by absorption of heat. Please visit our zeAC crowdfunding campaign that is currently live on Indiegogo and buy one or more units for your home or office!”

The simple and user-friendly zeAC is easy to operate. It involves refilling the tank with water every morning. The system helps create a micro-climate of stable humidity and cool comfort, right through the day and night. The unique zeAC is ideal for use in rooms measuring 100 square feet or for larger rooms, just deploy more zeAC units.

The main component is a cylinder with micro-porous surfaces that can help control the climate. Water evaporates from these surfaces and helps cool down the air inside the room. The added benefit is that the zeAC’s plants absorb harmful CO2 in the room and release fresh oxygen, thus making the atmosphere inside the room healthy and enjoyable.

According to the team associated with developing this unique air conditioner, during the testing process of zeAC, the device cooled down room temperatures to around 27 degrees Celsius even as the temperature outside was around 35 degrees Celsius. With zeAC, users will enjoy a constantly controlled room air temperature, humidity levels, increased oxygen, reduced CO2 and reduced temperature swings reducing thermal discomfort.

The device also has a heating element that can add heat on cooler days in small amounts to ensure that the air conditioner’ main cylinder always maintains a temperature of 36 degrees. This helps bring room temperature to a steady 24 degrees. In tests conducted in winter climate of -1 degree Celsius, the humidity was around 65 per cent according to the developers of zeAC.

The zeAC can be used with a large variety of plants including Peace Lily, Money Plant, Bamboo Palm and Mother-in-law’s tongue. It also works well with popular trees like Peepal Tree, Rama Tulsi, Christmas Cactus, Aloe Vera, Snake Plant, Neem Tree, and Areca Palm.

According to the team of developers of the project, zeAC is 100 times more energy efficient, healthy and sustainable than conventional air conditioners. It can be used as an alternative to regular AC units and can be easily integrated with the décor and interiors of any room due to its small size and sleek appearance. The unit can enhance the appearance of any home or office when placed in a flower put accompanied by attractive and colorful flowers.

GlowThrow Launches Exciting Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign to Fund New Glow-in-the-Dark Fetch Game for Playing with Dogs at Night

17 May

Australian Company GlowThrow Begins Much-Awaited Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign in the Pet Niche for Innovative Glow-in-the-Dark Ball Launcher Product

By Robert Hoskins

Melbourne, AustraliaGlowThrow, a Melbourne-based company which has developed an ingenious pet-friendly product featuring the latest technology, has confirmed that it has launched a crowdfunding campaign on the global Kickstarter platform to help get its original provisional patent pending glow-in-the-dark fetch game for dogs off the ground. It is hoped that pet owners will be able to spend much more quality time with their dogs as the product can easily be used at night. Its target market is dog owners who get home after dark and people who happen to live in areas that get far less natural sunlight during the day, especially in winter.

GlowThrow is the world's only pet-friendly designed glow-in-the-dark fetch game for playing fetch at night

GlowThrow is the world’s best pet-friendly glow-in-the-dark fetch game for playing with dogs at night

A 12-month labour of love has seen the GlowThrow developed and tested by a pet-centric lighting industry professional with a 7-year-old white colored Whippet named Chicken who enjoys night time walks. Lachlan Scott is a heavy industrial mining lighting expert who earned his Degree from Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne.

In the business world, he was a former Project Development Engineer and Sales Manager for a global lighting industry giant recording annual sales of $8.98 billion AUD per year. Importantly, with overall pet wellbeing and safety in mind, GlowThrow features a powerful inbuilt LED to charge the glow-in-the-dark ball whereby the LED and battery are located within the launcher rather than the ball – eliminating the risk of dogs accidentally eating the electronics while playing fetch. What’s more, GlowThrow’s unique design allows for a sustainable bright glow experience during every walk as the LED charges the Phosphor.

“I work long hours and there can be so much emotion wrapped up in this as a dog owner. I felt so guilty working late. Our Whippet named Chicken really has a way of tugging at your heart strings. I think it must be the same for every pet owner who also finds themselves in our situation,” expressed Lachlan Scott, Director, GlowThrow. “Now, the GlowThrow allows my girlfriend and me to get the most out of walks with Chicken – no matter what time we both can get home at. It has helped to nurture the bond that we have with our dog who feels so much like a part of the family. I guess a lot of people can relate to our story.”

Currently, with 2 staff and multiple outside contractors, GlowThrow solves a natural light problem for people who work long hours and often get home as the sun is setting or when it is already dark. Lachlan Scott also observed a major natural light issue when he lived in Vienna, Austria for 2 years. In the Northern Hemisphere, the sun sets at 4 pm in winter.

Interestingly, from a quality of life standpoint, earlier this month, the Austrian capital was named the best city in the world to live in for the 8th year in a row. GlowThrow is committed to improving the quality of life for pet owners and dogs.

In November 2016, the GlowThrow team filed for provisional patent pending with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The immediate goal is to complete a successful crowdfunding campaign and fulfil as many orders as possible with Kickstarter traction to get the product to backers. The vision for the business is to have GlowThrow stocked in as many pet shops as possible.

Every GlowThrow features:

  • High powered LED light built neatly into the head of the launcher.
  • Super bright glow-in-the-dark ball for maximum visibility.
  • A fortnight of daily night-time dog walks from a fully charged 1200m Ah Li-Ion rechargeable battery.
  • Micro USB charger port to charge the battery.
  • Exceptional ergonomic handle with over moulded rubber for secure grip comfort.
  • Flexible neck for long throws.
  • LED light doubles as an illuminating torch when not charging the glow-in-the-dark ball.

GlowThrow is the world’s only pet-friendly designed glow-in-the-dark fetch game for dogs that gives you the ability to keep the ball glowing super brightly while you effortlessly play fetch at night. To see GlowThrow in action at night visit: http://www.glowthrow.com/

Lucca Bozzi Launches Solar Wallet – Sails 850% Past Its @Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Goal of $5,000

Solar Wallet incorporates advanced charging technologies and an integrated charging cable for the internal power bank and solar cell, to extend mobile devices’ battery life up to 10 hours

By Robert Hoskins

San Francisco, CaliforniaLucca Bozzi introduced its Solar Wallet on Kickstarter, a luxury wallet that gives users the power to freely charge their devices on the go using solar power.

“The most frequently carried daily devices are the phone and wallet. Your phone has consistently evolved over the past years, but why hasn’t your wallet?” said Seva Mouler, Lucca Bozzi’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Our focus has been creating a beautiful, timeless design while also working with the top engineers to perfect a piece the majority of the world carries daily.”

Solar Wallet is a modern interpretation of the classic bi-fold wallet that incorporates advanced charging technologies and an integrated charging cable for the internal power bank and solar cell, to extend mobile devices’ battery life up to 10 hours.

With a patent-pending construction, the wallet maintains thinness, durability and a lightweight design. Originating from the internal power bank is the custom integrated charging cable that is compatible with USB-C, Apple Lightning and Micro-USB devices. The charging cable tucks inside the stow-away compartment eliminating cable-hassle and the need to bring an external cord.

The wallet’s solar component offers yet another source for battery life. “One of our many aims for Solar Wallet was to encourage the use of sustainable energy in our everyday life,” Mouler adds. Users are able to cultivate renewable energy through any light source; e.g. sun coming through the windows of your home and even through lightbulbs in the workplace.

“In a time where we rely on our tech more every day, we sought to create a versatile wallet that addressed the unique and evolving charging needs of the millennial, while maintaining the luxury of a designer wallet,” said Mouler.

The Solar Wallet campaign was launched on Kickstarter on April 5 and is over 850% funded after 1 week. Estimated shipping is December 2017.

Solar Wallet Features Include:

  • Internal power bank for +10 hours of extra charge
  • RFID protection against electronic data theft
  • Android to Apple connectivity – use a micro-USB cable to charge an iPhone or iPad
  • Intelligent Charge – passthrough charge auto-optimizes between mobile device & wallet
  • Quickdraw access for most used cards
  • Integrated charging cable
  • Compatible with USB-C, Apple Lightning and Micro-USB
  • Solar rechargeable – harness the power of the sun and any light source
  • Spring loaded money clip for cash storage
  • Storage for up to eight cards
  • Super slim and lightweight
  • 100% genuine Nappa leather

Solar Wallet can be purchased on Kickstarter for an early bird discounted rate of only $99 for a limited time. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $199.

Lucca Bozzi is a company focused on creating fine Italian leather products that incorporate progressive technology, yet maintain the essence of their classic design. Their guiding philosophy is to develop products that evolve and optimize users’ everyday carry.
