Crowd funding sites like Indiegogo have spurred a tons of mobile-focused innovation, and the latest huge campaign looking for more contributors is called GOkey. The basic idea behind GOkey is being a bit of an all-in-one smartphone tool — a large key-sized device that is a battery, a charging and data sync cable, a device locator and a file storage device all in one. It's a pretty neat idea, and it's pulled in nearly $1 million after looking for just $40,000 to start.
The GOkey promises to charge up your phone for up to two hours of use, act as a pass-through lightning cable for charging your phone from an outlet or computer, offer 8, 16 or 32GB of its own storage and help you track either your key ring or your phone if you've lost one or the other. As with any other crowd funding project there's no guarantee of any of this, but GOkey says it plans to have products shipping out in January of 2015 if all goes to plan.
Being near the $1 million mark means GOkey will reach its fourth stretch goal, which will add a file manager app, and if the project hits $1.2 million by the time the project ends tonight it will add more color options. Previous stretch goals reached added GPS location, USB 3.0 support and the ability to act as a phone remote.
If you're interested, head over to the Indiegogo page at the source link below, read the information and disclaimers then put your money down on this really interesting looking project. Funding levels start at $59 for an 8GB GOkey.
