Your smartphone plus GoPro plus HEXO+ plus adrenaline equals aerial awesomeness. HEXO+ is basically a robot that flies (sweet!) and captures your every move using your smartphone and three minor intuitive gestures. All you have to do is be the sport adrenaline junkie you are, and you’re all set. The HEXO+ drone will do all the dirty job only better. It uses advanced smartphone and drone communication protocols that anticipate your next moves, capturing all the finest moments for everyone to relive. The project is still on its Kickstarter funding stage with pledges over $800,000 topping its initial goal of just $50,000. We’ll definitely keep our eyes on this flying robo-cam.
I’m declaring Homey as Siri’s adopted sister, it’s basically a speech-controlled automated system of your TV, your lights, your music, your room temperature, technically everything—even your oven! What a smart piece of equipment Homey is! Just plug it in, and you’re set because Homey already knows her way around. And even if she’s not familiar with the device you’re linking it with (not a biggie, by the way), you can still teach it using the remote. By this time the funding stage is over, and according to its Kickstarter campaign page, shipping will start by January 2015. I’m guessing a lot of backers will opt to stay at home next year.
Specifically designed for smartphones, this tiny wonder let’s you snap pictures and stream videos—all hands-free! It has an 8MP sensor, a built-in Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth connections, an 8GB internal flash with auto upload to your smartphone and cloud storage, sapphire lens protector and Aluminium body. With all that amazing features, it is also waterproof, so rest assured all your land and water adventures are backed up by CA7CH Lightbox. Distribution starts this coming October, and you don’t want to miss that right? I suggest backing them up right now!
These are just few of Kickstarter’s amazing project campaigns made for your smartphone. It is not yet confirmed if these creations will be compatible to the current operating systems—that is iOS 8 and Android Lollipop, but these inventors are smart enough to do such. Whether you’re an extreme sports enthusiast, a homebody, or simply someone who loves to take photos, there’s always something that’ll keep you excited for the coming days.
