Thermodo – Thermometer for Mobile Devices

Thermodo – Thermometer for Mobile Devices
· ·

Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer that measures the temperature right where you are on your iPhone, iPad and Android devices. I don’t think Windows Phone support will be there since the stretch goal of US$400,00 (in order for Thermodo to come out with a Windows Phone app) was never met. You can download the Thermodo app on Apple App Store or Google Play.

I backed Thermodo on Kickstarter on the 7th March 2013 and it was funded successfully on 10th April 2013 after raising US$336,018 out of their initial goal of US$35,000.

Moshi Cardette 3 – USB 3.0 Card Reader + 2-Port USB 3.0 Hub
· ·

The Moshi Cardette 3 is in it’s third generation and hence the number 3. It also coincide with USB 3.0, I wonder did they refresh the product each time there is a major release to the USB specifications?

For the unaware, the Moshi Cardette 3 is a USB 3.0 Card Reader that has a built-in 2-Port USB 3.0 Hub. It is lightweight (weighing at 88g) which makes it suitable for carrying around together with your laptop (which is what I am doing). It is retailing for S$69.90.

I sleep in an air-condition room almost all the time and ever since my LASIK, I am more conscious about the dryness of my eye as I don’t want my degree to regress. When I sleep, my eyelids are not fully close (I have no idea why) and I get extreme dry eyes when I wake up the next morning.

My LASIK doctor had already prescribed me with Duratears for me to apply everynight before I sleep and to wear an eye goggle.

The Sensu Artist Brush & Stylus was the 5th project I backed on Kickstarter, I backed it because I find the capacitive brush stylus interesting and I have not seen any stylus like that in the market before. The Sensu Artist Brush & Stylus consists of 2 tips, which is the brush tip and the rubber tip located at the opposite end of the stylus.

Backed the project on 22nd September 2011, it became officially funded on 21st October 2011 after raising US$65,823 (the goal was only US$7,500). The Sensu Artist Brush & Stylus was about 5 months in the making and I received the product on the 11th April 2012.
