When it comes to energy solutions in developing regions, the resources require to invoke real change are usually sparse.  The designers at Therefore worked on a gravity powered lamp in their spare time over four years. The London-based design firm is expecting the light to cost less than $5 to manufacture at scale. Once a family purchases the light, they’ll be able to keep it running at no additional expense.

They’ve got an Indiegogo campaign up now to help fund production of the first lights for testing—show them some love.

Aetho wants to bring stabilizers to consumers everywhere with the ‘Aeon’. Traditional very large stabilizers used by video professionals, the ‘aeon’ is a handheld tool that is ergonomic and lightweight for creating smooth, cinematic videos.

To keep it stable, the gadget uses sensors to detect the three axes and makes adjustments 1,000 times per second. With every counter movement, the ‘aeon’ employs three brushless motors to move the camera. To view the footage, the ‘aeon’ includes a two-inch circular screen so videographers can see the ‘GoPro’s’ perspective. Weighing only 500 grams, the stabilizer is made from injection molded ABS plastic and features a five-hour battery that can be charged using a USB cable.  To frame more interesting footage, the aetho ‘aeon’ has a universal mount that works with all official ‘GoPro’ accessories. The video stabilizer is available for purchase on their indiegogo page, with a plan to ship to buyers in early 2016.

Smarty Ring


Smarty-Ring-5

Smart watches have been all the rage on the tech scene, but we’ve yet to see a smart ring. Well that’s exactly what Smarty Ring is, and seeing that they just surpassed their goal on IndieGoGo, this concept may soon become a reality. Rather than having to pull out your phone a hundred times a day to check for updates on Facebook, you can now get all of your text, chat, and social network notifications sent right to your fingers. Utilizing Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, this smart ring will work on both iOS and Android powered devices (with an interactive app built for both), and also lets users manage their calls from their fingers as well. You can do everything from accepting/rejecting incoming calls to speed dial and emergency calls. There’s even a built-in butt call alert for those accidental dials. The Smarty Ring also comes with a built-in clock that displays five different time zones, and even includes a stop watch as well for training in the gym. The ring itself is crafted from allergy free surgical stainless steel, uses LED lights for the display, and includes a wireless charger.
