ScreenStick is a stick-on joystick for tablets

Mobile gaming has become a sophisticated hobby over the years, and anyone who enjoys it quickly grows tired of on-screen digital controls. The solution is a mobile gamepad, of which there is no shortage, but they all come with the same design: a clip in which a smartphone or tablet is slid, positioning it above a standard gaming controller.

Waterproof Splash Drone can automatically follow your jet ski

There are all kinds of ways to record your surf session. You used to need a friend to film from shore, or you could wear a camera helmet, or attach a Go Pro to your surfboard for a first-person view.

Ringo is an adorable robotic pet

Robotic pets have been around for a while, but the older versions were usually frightening (for example, the Furby).

We've seen some pretty absurd products appear on Kickstarter over the years, and some of them have been pulled in the face of those doubts.

Elite: Dangerous coming to Xbox One and Oculus Rift this summer

Podo wireless camera fits in your palm, sticks to the wall

Unless you're a photographer, your smartphone camera is probably your primary camera. Though it is convenient, there are times when having a dedicated camera can come in handy as well (like when you're wanting to record from a drone or underwater). Podo is one of those little standalone cameras that target the everyday consumer and work with the tech you already have (again, your smartphone). It's smaller than a compact digital camera, however, and can be stuck on surfaces with its adhesive backing.
