Freedom Trax: A Powered Track Device For Wheelchairs

Being a pro-military guy, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear about Freedom Trax is how much it can help some of our wounded warriors regain some of their independence in return for the sacrifices they’ve made for our country. That’s why we would really like to see this reach its funding goal in the next 17 days. Freedom Trax is a motorized endless track device that mounts to any standard manual wheelchair. The device allows the user to traverse terrain such as sand, mud, high grass, gravel and snow unassisted. It’s got a long way to Read More

Titan 1: The Fastest, Tallest 3D Printer In The World

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on the world of 3D printers, but one look at Kickstarter has shown us that the industry is alive and well. This time, it’s the Titan 1 — the fastest, tallest print, high-res SLA 3D printer in the industry. It can do up to 2.7 inches per hour print time, 9.5 inches tall print size, and min 37 micron XY resolution. To put it in perspective just how fast Titan 1 is, other SLA printers take 4 to 6 hours to print a 4.6 inch Eiffel tower with 100 micron Z resolution. Read More

One brewery in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has proven a new fundraising model where you shell out a one-time fee of $1,000 and enjoy beer on them, in-house, for the rest of your life. It’s a small restaurant called the Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub, and through 46 takers, the owners of it were able to complete their $220k funding goal that enabled them to open the restaurant. If this were an option where I lived, I would totally do it. Why? Because — full disclosure here — in a one-year period of time, I spent around $750 on alcohol. In my defense, Read More

Oru Kayak Wins Shark Tank

Today, we have an update on the Oru Kayak, an origami folding boat that we featured some time ago on the website. Since that time, the price and the stability amped up a bit, and the guys landed a deal with Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec at $500,000 for 25 percent (an overall valuation of $2 million). If you need a reminder, the Oru Kayak is a light, compact, and elegantly designed piece of functional modern art. On the water, it glides like a dream. It’s stable enough for beginners, and the length and contouring make it fast and sporty enough Read More
