Help bring Reading Rainbow back with Kickstarter funds

Some things are just worth supporting. I grew up with this show and to this day I would say it was a huge influence in my desire to read. While it has already met it’s million dollar goal let’s try and push it to keep the program going for years to come.

Kickstarter of the day: Dragon Slayer

IHC! I’m a long time reader and comic artist, and I’ve just launched the Kickstarter for my feature length graphic novel Dragon Slayer. It’s got bear fights, dragon fights, motorcycle chase scenes…the works. Someone described it as “a Japanese Mad Max”, which I’ll gladly accept as a description for the book.

I’m working as hard as I can to get the word out, so if anyone’s interested, you can check out the Kickstarter campaign here: http://kck.st/1mfJeXe

Billionaire Banshee: Would You Date Them?

Billionaire Banshee, a card game from Steven Bailey, takes childhood games of Would You Rather…? or internet meme WillYouPressTheButton? a step further.

Players of Billionaire Banshee draw cards to determine the Perks and Quirks of their potential date. Quirks are bizarre negatives, but maybe the perks will even things out!

Then, the player’s friends will vote on whether their friend will agree to date this character, or not. Like Apples to Apples, correct guesses earn a point, and knowing your friends’ quirks is a winning strategy.

The Kickstarter describes this as a conversation starting game:

 

How could someone be okay with dating a mate with tentacles, but have a problem with dating a wizard? Why would someone deny a billionaire, but date a lover with a toaster oven mouth? These are probably questions you never thought you’d be asking about your friends, but that’s why this card game exists!

 

I’m a huge fan of ridiculous social games, and by “social game” I mean something you do with your friends in the same room (drinking optional, but encouraged), and not something you do to spam your Facebook friends. 

And, for fans of indie games, Billionaire Banshee will include cameo cards from some awesome indie studios:

The Billionaire Banshee Kickstarter is here, and is currently 80% funded, with 11 days left.

COVr iPhone case could help you take much better candid phone photos

Sure, there’s always a creepy use for everything, but one of the reasons I’ve resisted buying any “real” camera larger than than a smartphone is that I really like the kinds of amazing slices of life you can get from people in public (Check out my random people candids from my first trip to LA here and here) People make so many great faces, but as soon as they know you’re taking a picture, the magic is lost when they smile or run or whatever. That’s where the COVr iPhone case comes in. With a high quality glass mirror angled next to your phone’s camera, you can snap photos with your phone horizontally to the ground, like you’re just-a-checkin-your-texts-la-la-la. That is, if it’s funded on Kickstarter. 

Help make this awesome thing a reality

Roadie is the next generation of guitar tuning tools

Sure, you can use your cheap little clip on digital tuner, or maybe you’ve got the skill to tune guitars for any key by ear. But for smart, automatic guitar tuning, Roadie is going to be launching later this year after Kickstarter funding goes through. You stick the device on the tuning pegs, pair it with the Roadie smartphone app, and it tunes each string to perfect pitch.

Kickstarter of the day: Handibot is a smart, portable handheld CNC tool

CNC equipment is generally really large, really really expensive and really stationary. But the Handibot takes all the power of computer guided woodworking equipment and makes it portable and smart and incredibly awesome. And to make it easier, Handibot will be backed by a series of apps to let you carve out any number of patterns in the same way that you can download pre-made models for a 3D printer without having a whit of 3D modeling experience.

IHCer Kickstarter of the day: Poker Smash

Heya IHC! One of the games I helped alpha for awhile back called Poker Smash is trying to get ported over to steam. Its the old “Matchup” formula, but the twist is it uses poker hands instead of just shapes and colors. If you liked Tetris attack, Panel de Pon, or Pokemon Puzzle League, its right up your alley. 8 bucks gets you a DRM free install AND a steam key.
