10 Great Kickstarter Items You Can Buy Now!

10 Great Kickstarter Items You Can Buy Now!

Kickstarter, the Dragon’s Den of the internet world. When people can’t get onto the BBC 2 show, they usually just go straight here. Filled with everything from the technology of tomorrow, to absolute garbage, hoping to make a quick sale.

There’s always something for someone on there. If you want it to become a reality, you can donate towards it.

And for those that are successful enough to get backing, they can then sell their products via Amazon Launchpad.

Here are 10 of the best items you can buy from Kickstarter right now.

Exploding Kittens Price: £19.99

From the site:

  • Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats
  • Family-friendly, party game for 2-5 players (up to 9 players when combined with any other deck)
  • This is the most-backed project in Kickstarter history and all cards feature illustrations by The Oatmeal
  • Includes 56 cards (6.35 x 8.89 cm), box, and instructions
  • This box, like 99.99% of boxes, does not meow

With the success of card games such as Cards Against Humanity, the door to newer, more entertaining card games was blown wide open. One of the first of course happened to be Exploding Kittens, like a reverse game of snap, players drawer cards until they get the Exploding Kitten, at which point they are out of the game. Should they have a special card in their possession however, they can defuse the exploding kitten and save themselves. Highly entertaining and a great way to kill an hour or so at parties. With expansion packs already available on Amazon, you can be sure you are purchasing pure fun.

Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition Price: £19.99

From the site:

  • Exploding Kittens NOT SAFE FOR WORK Edition is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and boob wizards and sometimes butts.
  • This NSFW Edition of Exploding Kittens is an ADULT ONLY party game for 2-5 players (up to 9 players when combined with any other deck).
  • This is the most-backed project in Kickstarter history and all cards feature illustrations by The Oatmeal.
  • Includes 56 cards (6.35 x 8.89 cm), box, and instructions.
  • This box, like 99.99% of boxes, does not meow.

Exactly like the product above, however a more less kid-friendly appearance on the cards. (If that’s possible!). Can be added with the normal deck as an expansion, however don’t confuse the two if you’re planning on playing with children at a later date!

LaMetric Time Wi-Fi Clock for Smart Home Price: £159

From the site:

  • Always get precise time and show your difference with thousands of clock faces. Ambient light sensor
  • Track weather, emails, events, tweets, followers, news, deadlines and other metrics from the Internet almost in real-time.
  • Connect to IFTTT and display notifications or launch actions with the click of a button, build your own apps.
  • Wake up to your favourite Internet radio stations, stream music to stereo speakers via Bluetooth.
  • Standalone Wi-Fi device. iPhone iOS 7 or greater or Android 4.0.3 or greater smartphone is needed for setting up and configuration only.

Sure, you could buy a clock for very little money. All you need it to do is tell the time right? Or, you could buy the best clock ever invented! Perfect for anywhere, this smartphone controlled clock will tell you the time, date, temperature, weather forecast, it’ll even tell you how many Twitter followers you have! Updated constantly, you’d be crazy to miss out on this awesome piece of tech.

Fuse Chicken 3 ft Titan Lightning Cable (MFI Certified) Price: £29.95

From the site:

  • Meet The Toughest Cable on Earth
  • Backed by a Lifetime Warranty
  • Human Proof, Pet Proof, Everything Proof
  • Virtually Indestructible MFi iPhone Charge Cable
  • Industrial-Grade Flexible High-Strength Steel

It’s almost famous that while Apple can make well made products. They also make as many bad quality ones too. I’ve witnessed so many iPhone chargers fall to bits, either splitting, fraying, setting someone on fire etc. While £29.95 may seem quite a lot for a charger cable, if you own an iPhone then I’m guessing money isn’t that much of an issue. You may aswell invest in a charger that’s never going to break and if it does, it’ll be replaced for free! That’s confidence in a product if I’ve ever seen it.

Zivix Jamstik+ Smart Guitar Price: £219

From the site:

  • World’s first digital smartguitar with wireless connectivity to iphone, ipad & mac.
  • A finger sensing fretboard that shows you how to play chords
  • Included interactive teaching apps that make learning fun
  • Perfect portable size for travel, fits in any bag, briefcase, or carry-on
  • Versatile and accurate midi controller that can play any sound

Fed up of carrying around a massive full sized guitar? I’ve seen you, on buses and trains, getting in everyone’s way. Why not considering buying one of these? Bluetooth Smart enabled digital guitar, unfortunately it does limit its user-base to iOS; not for Android or Windows.

The Oomph Advanced Coffee Maker Price: £34.90

From the site:

  • All-in-one coffee maker: engineered for better coffee, designed for everyday life.
  • Unique patent-pending design brews coffee machine quality coffee in under 2 minutes.
  • Advanced coffee brewing: re-brew, grind correction and active stirring.

Perfect for that portable cup of coffee! Off to Glastonbury this year but a bit long in the tooth? Chances are, at your age you’re going to need a coffee more than a beer first thing in the morning. Enter the portable coffee machine, looking at the product video this looks absolutely fantastic. A must for any camper.

You only need to type “Boobs” into Google to get some NSFW content. Do you want your kids seeing that? If not and you are a responsible parent, get this family access point, connect it to your router and control what your children see via the app on your phone.

Giroptic iO Type C- HD 360 Degree Camera Price: £139
