Kickstarter has -- some would say finally -- launched their iPhone app. It's focused on helping you discover interesting projects to back, getting updates from your friends and the stuff you've backed, and, if you're a creator, keeping your backers informed and updated. According to Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler, and Charles Adler, writing on the Kickstarter Blog:
Wally has arrived on Kickstarter and it claims to be a wallet for the iPhone but redesigned. We have all seen loads of cases that also include a wallet but what if you don’t want a case and just want something simple to hold your bank card? Well this is where the Wally looks to help you out. It is designed to cling to the back of your iPhone and can contain up to three bank type cards securely.
We have seen many different bumper designs for the iPhone but we have never seen one as thin and simplistic as this one. The AL13 is currently seeking pledges on Kickstarter and looks to offer protection for your iPhone without adding much bulk or spoiling its beautiful design either.
If you have ever had the need for a thermal imaging device then you know how expensive they can be. Well this latest Kickstarter project looks to change all of that by utilizing your iPhone and a new clip on thermal imaging camera.
We have seen many gaming solutions for the iPhone come and go however this latest Kickstarter project may have a bit more to offer. The interesting part of this particular project is that the designer is working with iDevices who already has a relationship with Apple. Because of this, Apple has apparently agreed to support the device.
Edison Junior, a technology and design lab, has been forced to shut down their POP portable charging station campaign on Kickstarter after failing to get a license from Apple to use the new Lightning connector. The Edison Junior was designed to charge multiple devices on the go, with retractable cables so that users wouldn’t have to worry about bringing their own cables along with them. Apple refused to grant permission for Edison Junior to use a Lightning connector, in part because the POP also contained a micro-USB cable, for charging Android and other non-Apple devices.
The Waka Waka personal solar power station is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The Waka Waka Power is a personal solar power station which can power your iPhone and iPad using just the power of the sun. The Waka Waka Power has been created on the back of a previously successful Kickstarter campaign for the original Waka Waka which was a solar powered LED light.
Former Apple engineer, Addison Shelton has invented a rather unique iPhone case that combines a sturdy polycarbonate body with aircraft grade aluminium. The unique part of this particular case is that it houses 16 tools within the case that can be pulled out in a similar fashion to the world famous Swiss Army Knife.
The HiLO Lens is currently on Kickstarter seeking backers for what can only be described as a clip on lens for your iPhone or iPad that allows you to get creative with your photographs. The HiLO lens is the first ever right angle lens for your iOS device that will let you take pictures from all sorts of new angles.
