Kickstarter Projects (Manatee, Spixi and iMpulse Game Controller)

Here’s a couple of items I found today which are sold on Kickstarter.

Manatee: The world-best stand for iPad using in bed and sofa

Lowest Pledge USD 179.00

This project will only be funded if at least $17,900 is pledged by Monday Oct 29, 2:59am EDT.

The Manatee is one of the best looking tablet stands I’ve seen… Definitely what the doctor ordered for me! I find the iPad to heavy and holding it to read before sleeping is a chore. But I find it too expensive.

A quick search from qoo10 showed me the following cheaper alternatives.

Multi-Directional Adjustment Cantilever Universal Stand Mini Smart Stand for Ipad Kindle Tablet PC (SGD 65.00)

Holder Stand For The new iPad/ iPad/ iPad 2 (SGD 84.99)

For those looking for alternative cables for their iPhone

Spixi: a better way to charge & sync your iPhone and Android

Lowest Pledge USD 17.00

This project will only be funded if at least $30,000 is pledged by Thursday Nov 1, 11:59pm EDT.

I believe this is a very expensive third party cable… If you’re using the new iPad and an iPhone 5, you’ll need to purchase an adapter from Apple!

There are also a lot of retractable cables sold everywhere!

The Spixi will be perfect for those who use Android and Blackberry devices since they both use mini-USB.

Here’s one of the most interesting item I found.

iMpulse Game Controller & Key Finder: Pocket Accessory

Lowest Pledge USD 25.00 (Sold Out)

This project will only be funded if at least $49,999 is pledged by Sunday Nov 4, 2:01am EST.

If you love playing with your smartphone or tablet, this is definitely for you. Only issue I have is that I’m not sure if it will work with NBA2K12…
