Super Troopers 2 crowdfunded quick with some unique perks

Super Troopers 2 crowdfunded quick with some unique perks

Some very wealthy individuals appear to have taken to the crowdfunding venture that is Super Troopers 2. While the film studio gave the go-ahead for the film with a guarantee of distribution, the creative team at Broken Lizard agreed to fund it. This means they needed to raise a minimum of $2,000,000 to get the film off the ground. Using an Indiegogo campaign to make the cash, they've claimed over $2.2 million in just over 24 hours. With 30 days left, the crew has 113% of their funding goal already.

Get cookin’ with the XM42; handheld flamethrower gets crowdfunded

Get cookin’ with the XM42; handheld flamethrower gets crowdfunded

The XM42 claims to be the world's first commercially available flamethrower, which means that almost anyone will be able to buy the handheld incendiary device. We have to wonder, is that really a good thing? The XM42 flamethrower is gearing up for production via the crowdfunding site IndieGogo.

For the XM42, safety certainly doesn't translate as weakness because the it packs a formidable, fiery punch.

This film would be a direct descendant of the first Super Troopers movie, also written by, directed by, and starring the five comedians in Broken Lizard back in 2001. This time the movie is bypassing collaborative studios and going straight for the money shot.

DuoPad trackpad adds touchscreen functionality to monitors

You might have a perfectly functional desktop monitor that meets all your needs, except one: touch support. Touchscreens have become such a familiar part of your computing habits that you might find yourself flicking or tapping the screen on occasion, only to remember that it lacks such functionality, relegating you to the use of a mouse. The DuoPad trackpad is a novel solution for this problem, lending touchscreen functionality to non-touchscreen displays using a large laptop-like trackpad with a little added technology.

TrackR bravo hands-on – Tracking with Bluetooth and the crowd

Where are your keys? How about your cat? Personal locator devices have come a long way since the days of "whistle and your keychain bleeps," and TrackR is hoping to lead the charge with its new sub-$30 bravo dongle. Aiming to not only allow users to leave their smartphone to keep track of their belongings, rather than forcing them to memorize where they last saw everything, but to also rope in the power of crowdsourcing to replace costly GPS, TrackR bravo is a 2014 Indiegogo success that's finally shipping today. It's been dangling from my belongings for the past few weeks; read on for some first-impressions.

Echo’s PowerSound speaker boasts 32 hours of playback

Portable speakers have gone wireless, and that's a good thing -- you're now able to play tunes from your phone or tablet over Bluetooth, no cable tethers to be found.

It also doubles as a power bank.

Mask headphones have integrated display in headband

As with music, viewing movies and TV shows has become a portable activity, thanks largely in part to the existence of smartphones. Viewing content on your phone isn't always ideal, however, perhaps due to glaring light or the screen size being too small. Enter Mask, a pair of headphones from Dashbon with an integrated display in the headband. The idea is that you wear them like headphones when listening to music, and slip them forward over your eyes to watch video when needed.

Neptune Suite offers more “dumb terminals” for Neptune Hub

Neptune Suite offers more “dumb terminals” for Neptune Hub

The Neptune Duo has barely taken off the ground and already the Canada-based startup has already bigger, better, and more ambitious plans ahead. It has just launched at Indiegogo what it calls the Neptune Suite. As the name implies, it is an almost complete set of accessories that mirror a smart device's display. But, being Neptune, they all evolve not around a smartphone but a smartwatch, which Neptune has named, quite appropriately, the Neptune Hub. The idea may sound strange at first, but on further thought, it is actually quite interesting.
