Lensbaby takes to Kickstarter with new iPhone 'sweet spot' lens

Lensbaby has some new iPhoneography gear up on KickStarter and it's called the Sweet Spot or the Creative Focus lens... or the LM-10. Or something. But naming consistency aside what Lensbaby is offering is a single, tight area of focus surrounded by MASSIVE blur. Whether you find that directs the eye to exactly where you want it to be, or just annoys you no end will likely depend on whether you view the Sweet Spot as art or novelty. Either way, if it appeals to you and your photographic sensibilities, you can back it now!

Fund This: Ring, the touchless gesture controller to everything

An impressive Kickstarter project out of Japan was launched recently called Ring. No, it doesn't involve a haunted videotape. This smart ring detects movement with enough fidelity to recognize gestures drawn in the air by an index finger and transmit them to your iPhone. Using the iOS app, users can program those gestures to execute commands, such as translating into text, launching apps, or approving transactions. A small sensor on the inside has to be touched in order to initiate a command, plus there's a vibration motor and LEDs in there to let you know about incoming notifications from your iPhone. There's going to be a Ring store which highlights apps that make use of Ring's API, and they've already tested it with a few popular accessories, like Philips Hue, AR Drone, Google Glass, and WeMo.
