I’m a big sucker for gadgets. Not just all gadgets, but gadgets that are fun to use and above all look nice. Recently I have been guilty of puchasing two deliciously designed gadgets. One will arrive in March and the other one will arrive in July…
MARCH - Instacube
‘Liberating Instagram photos from your smart device, Instacube feeds your favorite images wirelessly at 3x the size.‘
Being an Instagram addict I had to participate in making this project possible. And because it looked really promising I decided to pledge enough to receive a “Classic” Instacube. You are a gadget lover or not! This Kickstarter project turned out to be a huge success. Instead of the $250,000 goal it pledged $621,049! With this kind of money the project got all the potency it needed to become a mature product. And somewhere next month my beauty will arrive. I’m already looking forward to it. I can’t wait to see all visual awesomeness from Instagram displayed in my Instacube.
JULY - Little Printer
‘lives in your home, bringing you news, puzzles and gossip from friends. Use your smartphone to set up subscriptions and Little Printer will gather them together to create a timely, beautiful miniature newspaper.‘
It doesn’t only look nice -I love both the product design and the graphic design- but it has so much potential of use. Besides making numerous publications from the web, it can also deliver messages to my children. And oh, I can already imagine the smile it will bring on their faces!
Little Printer will arrive in July. I just calculated it will be 122 days until the first of July: the count down can start! Maybe the looking forward part is even as much fun as the receiving part.
I will probably fall for one or two more gadgets this year. Once it happens again I’ll report back to you.
