Pebble has finally begun teasing its next smartwatch ahead of an official unveiling next year, and according to Pebble evangelist Myriam Joire, it’s going to deliver “more everything.” It won’t only be prettier than its predecessors, but thinner, too — and it’ll offer a whole new level of customization.


Pressy, the innovative Android add-on that adds a physical button to your headphone jack, has finally begun shipping to Kickstarter backers. The news comes more than 8 months after Pressy secured almost $700,000 — ten times its original $40,000 goal — in funding from supporters.


When you buy a smartphone case, it’s almost always for protection. You don’t want your $600 device to get scratched in your bag, and you certainly don’t want it to shatter when you drop it. But don’t you think cases could be about more than that?

London-based Cliq Cases certainly does, and that’s why their new smartphone case features customizable shortcut keys that you can use to launch your camera, control media playback, toggle your flashlight, and more.


Google Glass is immensely difficult to get hold of right now. In fact, you have little to no chance of bagging the device if you live outside of the U.S. and don’t have a spare $1,500. But thanks to a new Kickstarter campaign, you can now become a Google Glass owner for just $33.

You’ll have to act quickly, though, because it’s almost certainly going to get pulled by Google. And yes, there is a catch.


Makers of the Pressy Kickstarter project have given some good news to its backers. People who have backed this innovative little button will have their units shipped by the 28th of April.  The project which started off with a funding goal of $40,000 has now raised over $695,138 with 28,818 backers who have ordered more than 40,000 units, so it could certainly take some doing from the team to ship them out in time.
