Chipolo is a Bluetooth item finder for iPhone and Android which started on Kickstarter. I backed the project on 8th November 2013 and it got successfully funded on the 16th November 2013 after raising US$293,014 out of the initial goal of only US$15,000.

My pledge level is US$99 (S$127) and shipping is free. I received the item on the 29th January 2014 via DHL Express!

UE BOOM

Launched last month, the UE BOOM is a 360° Bluetooth wireless speaker which is water resistant and even shock proof. It is out in stores retailing for S$299 and available in 4 colors (Blue, Red, Black and White).

My first impression of UE BOOM is the sound is loud and the bass is pretty good, the only downside is that it is a little pricey.
