Knocki Review

Knocki is an interesting device that can turn any surface into a remote control. As the name of the product suggests, you can knock or tap on any surface that the Knocki is on, and it will translate into remote actions (which Knocki calls tasks).

Knocki started as a Kickstarter in May 2016, and it got successfully funded on July 2016. It raised a total of US$1,144,399 out of its initial goal of US$35,000 from 8,897 backers.

Flipper Zero

Flipper Zero is a portable multi-tool for “hackers” who likes to play around with radio protocols and access control systems. It started as a Kickstarter project on 30th July 2020. It was then successfully funded on 29th August 2020 after raising a total of US$4,882,784 from 37,987 backers, which blew past their initial goal of only US$60,000.

I was their early bird, so I paid US$119 (S$166) without shipping as Flipper could not determine the shipping cost then. When they managed to get their logistics sorted out in September 2021, I paid US$13.37 (S$19) for shipping to Singapore.

Passport III – 65W Travel Adapter

I am a huge fan of Zendure Passport travel adapters, and they are a must bring for me for my overseas trips. I have the original Passport, Passport Pro, and Passport Go.

I only didn’t get the Passport II Pro as it was launched during the COVID-19 period and I am unsure when I will travel again.

I backed the Sonoff NSPanel Smart Scene Wall Switch when it was a Kickstarter project back in October 2021.

My pledge level is the “Flash Sale – NSPanel,” where I paid HK$389 (S$68) for the Sonoff NSPanel, and shipping to Singapore cost me HK$94 (S$17). So in total, I paid HK$483 (S$85).

Peak Design Everyday Sling (5L)

Thanks to the Peak Design Facebook User Group, I came to know that B&H Photo Video had a 24-hour sale on 25th February 2020 for the Peak Design Everyday Sling (5L) at their Deal Zone section. Only the Black and Ash colors are available.

It was an open box deal, which means it is like new with an open box. When I received it, it looks brand new too me, and I can’t tell the difference.
