Ritot Projection WatchAn Indie GoGo campaign is introducing Ritot, the first ever projection smartwatch, an idea that it’s already seeing a great success.

The Ritot is a sleek, single band watch that looks similar to many fitness trackers, rather than an actual watch. But it projects the time in your selected format onto the hand, making it the first projection watch on the market.

Originally seeking $50,000 in funding, they have gone an astonishing $900,000 beyond that, already. This has allowed for some new goals to be put into place.

USB StickTwo researchers are looking to change the way you think about USB drives. Mainly, to get you to dismiss the notion that they are safe to use. Or to pass around.

USB drives have become a bit of a dinosaur, thanks to cloud storage, SD and micro cards, p2p sharing and desktop transmission applications like Dropbox. But some people still use them, and they are a frequently gifted business item used as a promotional tool from many corporations.

KickStarter: Sense wants to help you sleep the smart way

KickStarter Sense Sleep SmartPeople don’t sleep much anymore. There have been many studies that show this, as well as those that claim we sleep too much regardless of the number of hours. Maybe the problem isn’t the amount we sleep, but the quality of the zzz’s we are getting. An issue that Sense wants to correct.

Sense is a gadget currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. It is a two-piece device. One is a sphere that monitors the environment for movement, sound, light and other elements, provides white noise or sounds on request, and functions as an alarm. The second is a tiny “pill” that clips onto your pillow to monitor your own movement through the night, and when you slip in and out of REM.

Apple EmployeesA new report coming from people unnamed inside of Apple say that smartwatches are coming, and that the company is dedicated to making them better than anything else on the market.

Those who have read my comments on smartwatches before know that I am not a fan in their current incarnation. They are more or less just very expensive accessories to smartphones. Other than fitness tracking, which can be had much cheaper using the multitude of other compatible devices out there, releases have been disappointing.
