Well, if you remember my post about ordering Coffee Joulies, you’ll probably know how can Kickstarter be interesting.
Long story short, Kickstarter is a website where people come with bright (Or lame) ideas and lacks funding to their ideas to make’em a reality. So they present the product (In a video, pictures, whatever), and you pledge some of your cash and choose your reward accordingly. It’ll only charge you when the project has reached its countdown and pledge goal.
I backed up Estylo 1.1, Blink and thank god they’ve met their goals (I can have fun stuff, yay!).
Estylo 1.1 is an awesome capacitive stylus pen that sticks to iPad’s side and compatible with its smart cover. Here’s a video of it:
Blink however is a puzzle PC game. Think of Portal, with no portals… Should be so much fun :3
And I just backed up this fun Crypteks USB flashdrive. It’s not as physically secure as IronKey, but you gotta agree it’s cheaper yet sufficient physical and digital security-wise.
Anyway, give Kickstarter a shot, you’d like so many things people there come up with :3

I don’t wan’t to sound negative, but there no other way to put it:
The stylus thing is a waste of money, imo. but then again, buying an ipad that costs about the same as a fully functioning laptop is also a wast of money.
portal clone should take off without needing a kickstart if it’s a decent game. steam is also a good way to distrebute it without sacrficing an arm.
the usb thing is just a gimmick. getting past physical prottection is a easy as getting you hands on a cheap electric saw. hardware encryption is errelevent because I can use stronger 4096-bit software encryption. so basicly, it a gorgus overpriced flash drive.
but don’t mind me, I just like to critisize other people’s work without showing anything of my own.
It never is when you draw on an iPad\Tablet. Yes, you can use your finger, but smudges and stuff gets in the nerves and normal styluses aren’t helping much either. having a sharp one would help better drawing. I know because I tried’em
It’s not exclusively for iPad, it works on any capacitive screen. But, sticks to the side of iPad because of magnets. Now back to cost, Don’t you think almost every single tablet cost as much as a functioning laptop? If you’re fine with a laptop and waiting few minuets for it to boot (Or seconds to wake up), its your call. Some people are fine with tablets in general.
First, it’s not a portal clone, it’s a puzzle game with a twist similar to portal.
Second, it needs serious funding to pay for licenses which they’re relying on Kickstarter because they obviously can’t afford it. Even if they want to distribute it, they need to pay some license fees.
Hmmmmm, this can be sawed, yes. As I said, not as secured as IronKey (Which is almost impossible to physically hack it, the chips inside burns if you try to tamper).
Yet, hardware whole-drive encryption is more secured than software-based encryption. It doesn’t matter what sort of encryption you apply for your software encryption because its more vulnerable than hardware encryption… Source
I take it you didn’t really read projects details, do it before criticizing :3 (Also, double check your spells)
You meany. You hurt my feelings…
/me starts to cry
(Also, double-check your Grammar :3 )
There’s no grammar auto-correct 😛
