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.

Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand

Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand was my 3rd project backed on Kickstarter and I think so far this is the only project that I am pretty disappointed with. The build and quality of it is just horrible.

For the unaware, Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand as the name suggest is a coil-like stand which you can twist and turn to your liking and it will hold up your mobile devices using a suction cup (Infinite Loop Smartphone Stand). The Infinite Loop Tablet Stand on the other hand allows you to rest your tablet on it’s pre-molded u-shaped base (instead of suction cup).
