It’s Thursday of our Kickstarter week! Huzzah!! Today I’m going to talk about 3 fun campaigns– the first is geeks who are interested in expanding their game-play/reading/whatever, the second is for you awesome DIYers and bloggers, & the last is for all gardeners! As per usual, at the bottom of the post I’ll go over tomorrow’s posts. Let’s git to it!
First up, we have…
Adventure Scents: Special Effects to Intensify Your Games
Deadline: March 20, 2015 (less than 22 hours to go, people!)
This one’s really great, guys..! The hilarity with which Jennifer Howlett explained these products is hilarious, so be sure to check out the campaign page for that alone. As for what these are….basically, it’s
an air freshener the harvested olfactory glands of aging gnomes placed in something pretty to make your games/books/music/whatever come to LIFE!
This isn’t ordinary air freshener, though…I mean, I certainly wouldn’t normally want anything that smells even remotely like horse stables or a dusty old crypt in my house, but for the games we play, I think it’s going to bring a really nifty aspect to the realism; it’s also gonna be entertaining as all-get-out, y’all!!! xD
They’ve got sample packs, jars, “wands” (way too cute, guys!) and filigree lockets to help spread the scent. I’m going with the locket/jar/sample pack combo (getting extra samples since they reached their stretch goal!) & I haven’t even finished picking out what scents I want yet!! Since the campaign started, she’s been able to create 4 more SETS of smells…that’s, like, 20 more smells, guys. I plan on getting some fantasy & sci-fi combos to go with the types of games we play. There’s even some neat steampunk ones! Next time we go in to a dragon’s lair, we’re SO READY!!
If you decide to wait until after the campaign (and forego the awesome extra goodies) you can always order online at the end of March once their webstore is open.
Deadline: March 28, 2015
This is THE. APP. For all DIYers out there..! It’s an app that lets you learn new DIY things, buy the products right from the app needed to complete said project, & you can upload your own projects to earn money from others who learn from you!! How neat is this, right??
I’ve signed up to be a beta-tester, so I’m very excited for this. It’s a #MakerMovement, yo!!
According to their campaign page, this app is going to save you loads of time & effort:
- No more hunting for products online
- No more second guessing on which supplies were used
- No more wasting gas for Michaels or Home Depot
- No more waiting in lines and wasting time
- No more NOT finding what you need
AvoSeedo: Grow Your Own Avocado Tree with Ease
Deadline: March 28, 2015
GUYS. I love avocados!! I’ve also always wanted to grow my own tree!! I’ve been too nervous to try, however, as I don’t exactly have the greenest thumb. I’d try the toothpick method but Lord knows I’d kill the thing. My luck…
Lucky me, now there’s the answer to my gardening prayers!! This sucker floats on top of the water, with a neat cutout in the bottom to allow the flat part of the pit access to water & the tip access to sunlight. If you’ve ever experienced or read about how difficult it is to get a pit to sprout, this will make the job infinitely easier!! Plus you get a neat little “flag” area to label the type, date started, &c.
According to the campaign page:
This is the main challenge when growing an avocado; if the seed is left high and dry at any time, there’s a chance that the germination process will stop permanently. And this is where AvoSeedo comes into play.
They have tons of details on their campaign page, as well as tons more photos describing how the process works. AND THEY’RE SO CHEAP!! I’m getting this for me, my Mum, my Aunt…Everyone’s getting one for Christmas!! Hahaha!!
What do you guys think of today’s selection?? Super awesome, no?
Tomorrow I’ll be detailing another book by the wonderful David G. Fores, something sophisticated for you gamers out there (Nintendorks UNITE!), and another campaign for all of you BAKERS! How thrilling!!!
See you tomorrow!
